The first seven years under Bush was good, even so much that despite your hated tax cuts, federal tax income reached a record high.

Under Obama's first six year, we have had the worst economic recovery in history, more people giving up on work, record debt and more low paying jobs than high paying ones, so cut the crap, Lapdog.

Thanks for informing the Dems here.

The rest of us understood when I posted that another negative quarter would cause the start of a new recession.

Finally even Waxidiot admits we are in an economic recovery from Bush's recession.
Read your own post, "...we have had the worst economic recovery in history...".

GM dying? Really? Here are the real figures for FOX lemmings deprived of the truth.

GM said sales surged 12.6% in May 2014, crushing expectations for just 6.4% growth.

Americans Aren’t “Yearning” For Foreign Meddling

Yesterday I mentioned that the write-up of the new NYT/CBS News poll distorted the results of the poll on one important question. Ryu Spaeth runs with the article’s extremely misleading interpretation:

A new poll from the Times also shows the difficulties a dovish candidate could face. Disapproval of Obama’s foreign policy is at an all-time high, even though a majority largely agrees with his approach to Iraq, particularly his pledge not to send combat troops there. This deep ambivalence can be attributed to the fact that voters “still yearn for their commander in chief to manage foreign crises, even when the solutions are not obvious to them,” according to the Times.

In other words, it is a problem of perception, or more accurately self-perception. Americans have little appetite for foreign misadventures, but they also are reluctant to concede their country’s historical reputation as a great shaper of global events.

That would be a curious contradiction, but the evidence from the poll shows that this is the wrong conclusion. When almost 60% of respondents say that they don’t want the U.S. to take a “leading role” in solving international conflicts, it’s clearly not true that they are “yearning” for foreign crisis management from the president. I doubt that there are very many Americans that are really yearning for this, since it is a very weird thing to yearn for. If there is one thing that we conclude from this survey that most Americans don’t want the president doing, it is taking the “leading role” in foreign conflicts in an attempt to “shape” their outcome. Unfortunately, the NYT article exaggerates the apparent contradictions in the survey responses to make the results seem more surprising than they really are. Obama wants the U.S. to have a “leadership” role in numerous foreign crises and conflicts, most Americans think the U.S. shouldn’t be doing this, and so they are unsurprisingly displeased with what he has been doing in the last year. Dovish candidates undoubtedly do face many obstacles, but a majority of voters that “yearns” for global “leadership” isn’t one of them.

Admitting Error on Iraq Is the Beginning of Foreign Policy Reform

....Most polling over the last year suggests that more hawkish candidates are the ones with a clear political liability now, and there’s some reason to think that this is not just a passing phase. As Dougherty points out, party leaders and foreign policy elites are wildly out of touch with the public’s concerns on these issues, so there is much less incentive for most Republican politicians to fall in line than there used to be.

Dougherty is right to urge Republicans to make this admission, and I agree that it is necessary if the GOP is to have any chance of regaining the public’s trust on foreign policy. However, admitting that the war was a “mistake” without making significant changes to the way that one thinks about the relevant issues won’t be enough. The real test for “peace-making” Republicans in office won’t be whether they can be made to acknowledge something about a disastrous war that at least two-thirds of the country already knows, but whether they can avoid making similarly terrible foreign policy judgments when the next debate over the use of force takes place. That will require seriously altering the way that most Republicans have thought about these issues since the end of the Cold War, and that won’t take place until at least some of them take the lead in acknowledging their past errors.
