Bush Acknowledges Recession For The First Time
JENNIFER LOVEN | December 5, 2008 03:14 PM EST | AP
Compare other versions »
WASHINGTON — President George W. Bush publicly acknowledged for the first time Friday that the U.S. economy is in a recession and worried aloud that Detroit's Big Three automakers may not all survive their mounting troubles.
Four days after the long-suspected existence of a recession was made official, Bush used the word himself.
"Our economy is in a recession," Bush said flatly, speaking to reporters on the South Lawn only hours after the release of a government report showing the biggest month of job losses in 34 years. "This is in large part because of severe problems in our housing, credit and financial markets, which have resulted in significant job losses."
While repeatedly listing the serious problems in the economy, the White House has refused to embrace the actual term until Monday, when a panel for the National Bureau of Economic Research said the recession began last December and is ongoing.
With automakers, particularly General Motors, in fear of bankruptcy, they are seeking from Washington a huge cash infusion of up to $34 billion, beyond an existing $25 billion loan program. Lawmakers are considering the idea, but there is uncertainty about the level of support on Capitol Hill for that plan.
Bush displayed skepticism about the wisdom of new aid to companies that still need to make "hard choices on all aspects of their business." So while urging lawmakers to act next week to help the battered industry, Bush urged a Congress controlled by opposition Democrats to follow his approach.
The president supports adjusting the $25 billion loan program, so that the money would be available more quickly and for more urgent needs than its original long-term purpose of helping to retool factories to produce more energy-efficient cars.
"I am concerned about the viability of the automobile companies," he told reporters on the South Lawn. "I am concerned about those who work for the automobile companies and their families. And likewise, I am concerned about taxpayer money being provided to these companie

When you think about it, it's pretty odd that the banks would give as much money as they did to Senators like Kerry, Dodd and Obama. Because they were not the majority party.
As to which of the two parties is more permissive of corporate scams, take a wild guess.
Defense rests.
HA ,ha they did exactly that. Statistics as follows;
.. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

I know most on this thread have a memory span of a tadpole so today is Sunday and your preacher man speaketh.
Pope Francis: Unfettered Capitalism Is "Tyranny"; Economic Inequality "Kills."

Pope Francis Stated in his 84 page document that lays out his official platform. Known as the apostolic exhortation. A critique on lax and immoral capitalist systems. The Pope loves everyone, poor and rich alike, BUT he is obliged, in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor.
Pontiff goes on attacking the idolatry of money and beseeching the politicians to insure that all their constituents are guaranteed an education, respectful work and health care.

“As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and finical speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems, or for that matter’ to any problems”
“Just as the commandment “Thou shall not kill” sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say “Thou shall not to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills”
Pope Francise

“While the earnings of a minority are growing exponentially, so to is the gap separating the majority from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few. This imbalance is the result of ideologies which defend the absolute autonomy of the market place and financial speculation. Consequently, they reject the right of states, charged with vigilance for the common good, to exercise any form of control. A new Tyranny is thus born, invisible and often virtual, which unilaterally and relentlessly impose its own laws and rules.”

“In this system, which tends to devour everything which stands in the way of increased profits, whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interest of a defined market, which becomes the only rule”

“in this context, some people continue to defend trickle down theories, which assumes that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, express a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system.”

A financial reform open to such ethical considerations would require a vigorous change of approach on the part of political leaders. I urge them to face the challenge with determination and eye to the future, while not of course, the specifics of each case. Money must serve, not rule!”

Pretty much what all the Nobel winning economist have been saying. Although the Pope provided no links as to his source!

Hi New Yawk. Good to see you too. I've always respected your opinions. The world would be a bore if we couldn't discuss opposing points in a harmonious and friendly manner.
As Hiliary Clinton said:
"I think that you can disagree with people and debate over their positions with issues without engaging in the politics of personal destruction."
That said, the bottom line is...the Supreme Court determined that the mandate fell within the Constitution's Necessary and Proper Clause because insurance market reforms couldn't function effectively without it. Unprecedented? Yes. Unconstitutional? No.
Hillary Clinton calls Republican Congress a “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”.

""We have a lot of kids who don't know what works means. They think work is a four-letter word." --- Hillary Clinton

""We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." --- Hillary Clinton

""I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president." --- Hillary Clinton

Before trying to use quotes from a political Bytch&Bimbo to buttress stupid opinions, think.

Or just try thinking under ANY scenarios...

Also, you are hardly qualified to tell readers what is and is not constitutional.

Future courts may strike down what assholeRoberts did just like other courts have done with past SCOTUS mistakes like Slavery issues, for example.

THE PRESIDENT IS NOT A LIER!!!

I believe in this more strongly than I ever had before. People say the President is a liar. I don’t know about that. He has been very honest in telling people what he was going to do and how he was going to be the great equalizer. He was going to give everybody their fair share. Then he even said it should be on the backs of the wealthy. Well if you make more than $50K a year you must be wealthy.

Most of the taxes passed are recessive taxes. Which means they are passed onto the working poor and middle classes respectively? The less you make the more you pay. Now also finding out that Bill Aires actually wrote Presidents Obamas Autobiography because the president did not know enough about himself. I do know people use ghost writers all the time. Then again Aires might know the President better than anyone else maybe even his wife? I digress
