Actually, we were climbing out of it in January, 2007, when the Democrats took over all the purse strings of the US government and were handed a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit DURING A WAR, and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars.
What have the Demcorats done to that since?
Did you say they increased the deficit by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT?
Did you say the more than tripled the debt to the 16 trillion dollars it is today?

Thanks for clearing that up for us.

Wrong!!
Here's what did it:
Bush offers up 'ownership society'
""Bush is placing new emphasis on restructuring Social Security, the centerpiece of his ownership pitch, as he lays out his second-term priorities in Wednesday’s State of the Union address and his 2006 budget next week.
The phrase “ownership society” began popping up in presidential speeches three years ago, as Bush took note of the growing numbers of Americans who own stock and of the importance of home ownership.
As early as February 2002, Bush said at a conference on retirement savings,“I want America to be an ownership society, a society where a life of work becomes a retirement of independence.” Even as Texas governor, he told senior citizens:“Ownership in our society should not be an exclusive club.... Everyone should be a part owner in the American dream.”
Bush made the banks loan money to people who couldn't pay it back because it made him look good - until the loans defaulted.
America gets it - that's why Obama will be reelected!!
Nonsense. Democrats blackmailed bankers into issuing mortgages to minorities of face the charge of racism, collapsing the financial sector.

WALTER RUSSELL MEAD: Black Depression.

The October employment numbers deepened the gloom among African Americans and those (including the Via Meadia team) who believe that the United States as a whole cannot progress as it should unless African Americans are getting ahead too. As a report from Think Progress reminds us, in October, African American unemployment rose almost a full percentage point to 14.3 percent.

As we’ve noted in earlier posts, unemployment is only part of the story. America’s Black middle class is facing a crisis of historic proportions. African Americans were among the biggest losers in the housing bubble; well intentioned but ill advised policy changes intended to get more low income families and marginal households into home ownership kicked in just in time to lure African American families into the housing market at the peak of the bubble. The loss of wealth and savings has been nothing short of catastrophic; decades of progress in building net worth for middle class and lower middle class minority families have been wiped out since 2007.

So. How’s that hopey-changey stuff workin’ out for ya?

Do any of you Foxophobes point out all the lies and discrepancies you think are being perpetrated?(Not talking about YOUR opinion versus the CONSERVATIVE opinion.) Do any of you Foxophobes realize that it IS a conservative-leaning venue but that you see actual news there the other stations won't cover?
FAUX has been caught in more lies than Rmoney!!

FAUX feeds the hateful racists red meat, too bad it's all lies.

FAUX is owned by an Austrailian, he's under investigation and has been found guilty of criminal behavior in Britain, as was his son and many of his employees. He's still under investigation in the US.

FAUX's biggest stockholder is an Arab.

Too bad you folks don't pay attention to real American news media.

But stupid is as stupid does. And the last four years have proven how stupid FAUX viewers are!!

Since 1981, National Journal's annual vote ratings have defined where members of Congress stand ideologically. The ratings rank lawmakers on how they vote relative to each other on a conservative-to-liberal scale in both the Senate and the House. The scores are based on the members' votes in three areas: economic issues, social issues, and foreign policy.
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, based on National Journal ’s vote ratings. He shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the presidential primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., also shifted to the left last year, although she has generally been more moderate in the ratings than her Democratic presidential rival.
http://nj.nationaljournal.com/voteratings/pdf...
OMG, carol, you are such a sheep if you'd been black you'd still be a slave. "NPR Morning Edition co-host Renée Montagne, MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan, and CNN contributor Bill Bennett all referred to the National Journal's 2007 Vote Ratings, which ranked Sen. Barack Obama the most liberal senator that year, without noting the subjectivity of the ratings. The National Journal based its rankings not on all votes cast by senators in 2007, but on "99 key Senate votes, selected by NJ reporters and editors, to place every senator on a liberal-to-conservative scale." In contrast, a study by political science professors Keith Poole and Jeff Lewis, using every non-unanimous vote cast in the Senate in 2007 to determine relative ideology, placed Obama in a tie for the ranking of 10th most liberal senator. Media Matters for America has repeatedly documented instances in which media figures have cited the National Journal ratings without noting their subjectivity.

On the June 27 edition of NPR's Morning Edition, Montagne stated: "[A]s this presidential campaign goes on, Barack Obama has been moving steadily to the center. Obama was ranked the most liberal senator in Congress last year by the National Journal. Now it appears he's trying to moderate his image as he prepares for the general election." On the June 26 edition of MSNBC's Race for the White House, Buchanan referred to the National Journal ranking by saying: "He's got ... the most left-wing voting record in the United States Senate. As we've said,[Sen.] Bernie Sanders [I-VT] has been demanding a recount." On the June 25 edition of CNN's The Situation Room, Bennett said Obama "has got the most far-left record in the U.S. Senate." Moments later, Bennett cited the National Journal ranking, saying: "[CNN senior political analyst] Bill Schneider, not Bill Bennett, did the metrics for the National Journal review."

In a June 16 PolitiFact.com article analyzing the Journal ratings, St. Petersburg Times Washington bureau chief and PolitiFact editor Bill Adair reported that National Journal editor Charles Green "says voters shouldn't rely on a single rating to determine a candidate's ideology" and quoted Green as saying, "There's pluses and minuses to each rating system. If you look at a number of them, I think you have a pretty good picture." Additionally, American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Norman J. Ornstein has also criticized the National Journal's rating of Obama as the "most liberal senator" in 2007, calling it "pretty ridiculous."

Try placing some sane content into your posts.
BTW:
Ed Gillespie, Romney Adviser, Admits Obama's FEMA Doing A Good Job Responding To Sandy
Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney's campaign, admitted on Sunday that the Obama administration is effectively responding to Hurricane Sandy, despite a torrent of criticisms from conservatives over the effort and Romney's own desire to change the way the Federal Emergency Management Agency operates.
In the past week, conservatives have begun piling on President Barack Obama for his response to the superstorm, attempting to argue that he has fallen short and should not be out campaigning in the final days before the election.
----------
And Karl Rove says Obama benefitted greatly from his handlling of Sandy.
Of course, his proof of bipartisanship with his new buddy, Chris Christie has helped enormously.
Looks like Rmoney shitcanned Christie, he didn't even offer to visit NJ.
Real Presidential. Ignore disasters, let people fend for themselves. That's Rmoney!!
That explains how Porkulus upgraded the infrastructure of New York and New Jersey and buried the power lines like everyone knows should be done since the first storm blew the first electrical pole over and the first tree fell on the first power line the first time a hurricane came ashore after America started using electricity.

860 billion dollars stuffed into the pockets of Democrat cronies, and not one dollar spent to upgrade the infrastructure.
Yup, those people eating cold canned food in the dark in New York and New Jersey should continue voting for Obama. It won't be long before they'll be just like everyone else in the country, eating cold canned food in the dark.

What Caused the Financial Crisis?
An article in the NY Times, "Pressured to Take on Risk, Fannie Hit a Tipping Point," is causing many people to wonder if Fannie and Freddie caused the financial crisis.
First, let me clarify the question. We are asking what caused the housing bubble, and, by definition, the cause cannot be explained by changes in an underlying market fundamental. I don't mean that we can't point to, say, a rumor that led to a rapid increase in the price of some good as speculators rush in, just that bubbles - by definition - are divorced from market fundamentals.
I think a more interesting question is what sets the stage for a bubble to emerge - what allows the rumor, irrational exuberance, etc., to express itself as a bubble? One thing that is needed is liquidity and credit, some way of substantially increasing demand. This is the air that inflates the bubble. Even if all the other conditions for a bubble to emerge are present, if there is no way to inflate the bubble - no way for speculators to rush in and drive up the price - then it won't inflate.
Even after 4 years we have no liquidity and credit. Even with the Fed doing all the printing and asset buying we have none. If Obama wins tomorrow it will be 4 more years before we get any. Nobody is going to turn loose of any major money as long as he is in there. But if Romney wins that money will be turned loose like a cofferdam being remove once it's job is done.
