Well well Defiant Texan have exposed what the dregs are that has been fermenting their dysfunctional ideologies. Now republicans are no longer taken at their word. Too much deceit and propaganda to answerer for. Gallup poll has reached new record lows for approval and disproval ratings for the republican party. Both of you do yourselves a favor and put down that Tea addiction and seek the Almighty Truth to forgive you of your trespasses. Remember?
In the early hours of September 15, 2008, five years ago last Sunday, Lehman Brothers announced it would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Lehman was a giant of the financial system -- the fourth-largest investment bank in the US, a firm that employed thousands of brokers and analysts, with billions in assets that were suddenly worthless -- and its collapse sent shock waves through the global economy.
Suddenly, it was obvious that the next president of the United States would inherit a staggering economic crisis. But the challenge that President Obama was forced to confront didn't just begin in 2008. Even before Lehman Brothers, middle-class security had been slowly eroding for decades as jobs became obsolete or were shipped overseas.
So as we mark this anniversary, we've asked senior staff from across the Obama administration to sit down and talk about the moment when key decisions were made -- the factors they weighed, the results of the actions that President Obama took. What we've put together is a behind-the-scenes look of the decision-making process that you won't find anywhere else.
Check out the story of America's recovery, then share it with your friends.
By the end of 2008, the economy was shrinking by an annual rate of more than 8 percent, our businesses were shedding 800,000 jobs a month, and credit was frozen for families and small businesses. We were in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. On the day that I first began working in the White House in 2009, the auto industry was on the brink of collapse and the President was wrestling with how to help the millions of families in thousands of communities who would have been devastated if the motor companies died.
That's the lens through which President Obama saw his responsibilities, and it's a consistent theme in all the stories we've collected. Every decision he made was meant to stop the economy from spiraling out of control, put people back to work, and reverse the trends that had buffeted middle class for decades. The task was nothing short of monumental -- to clear away the rubble of the crisis and lay down a new foundation for sustained economic growth in the United States.
There's no diminishing the severity of the challenge we've overcome together, and we’ve got a lot more work to do to rebuild an economy where everyone who works hard has a chance to get ahead. But five years after Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, we want to help everyone get the context and see the full picture.
Take a minute to learn more about where we are five years after the start of the financial crisis:

Borrowing more money to pay off debt is like trying to build a house on quicksand. Try that at home, fool.

The only thing saving this country from total collapse is the fact that other countries would be pulling the the plug on themselves by taking away Obama's credit card.

Here are a few more Presidential firsts that we will soon be able to attribute to Ovomit (A.K.A. Barry Soetoro

-- Oversaw the first ever fiscal downgrade

-- Oversaw China replace the US as the world's largest economy

-- Oversaw the dollar replaced as the world's currency

-- Made the US the laughing stock of the World

-- Made the US a reviled country

-- Increased America's poverty, where 20 million people go hungry

-- Gives away billions to other countries who hate America

-- Shamed America for wanting to invade Syria

-- Was shamed by the Russian President and German Chancellor over leadership qualities
--(there are many more)

Sadly, Mr Obama (the 'yes we can' President is rapidly becoming the most unpopular President in history)

Consider Obama knows how to get the deficit down, Where as republicans have no idea on how to do that. Give Obama room to invest and get the deficit going down faster than it already is. Republicans cry to fast, to fat slooooow down… I’ll go with Obama on this one. After all who created the debt in the first place. Republicans 1929 Great Depression and their 2008 Great Recession….
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

Good lord you are truly ignorant of what is going on in the world. Gallup poll and a few other polls have exposed the republicans at the lowest polls for approval and disapproval in the history of the USA to be held by one party. Of those polled 70% hold republicans responsible for the dysfunctions of our government congress. Do try to keep up…. Your right wing propaganda is no longer working.
As I stated before, as communication increases so does the knowledge of those communicating grows. Well for some. We will always have our 10% of DUH ! Like you emulate.
Personally I hope Obama vetoes the senate proposal for raising the debt ceiling and put a stop to these juvenile republican tactics that is destroying our nations credit as a financial leader.
If we can’t rid ourselves of this ignorance within our politics then the Chinese’s are correct. Its time we pass on the role of leadership to another. LOL that would instantly make your white class a minority, on the world stage. Technology, finical, trade, free markets, etc., etc., will now be to the discretion of the world new leaders. Gee who would of thought that addiction to Tea would be the demise of our democracy. Credit goes down> Interest Rates go Up> The 1% collects the profits. Now that’s what I call Repubacare.
See you at the polls 2014...Ta, Ta, Oh by the way democrate and Obama polls are rising as fast as the anual deficit is falling. Hmm soon Obam will emulate Clinton and have a surplus on the annual deficit. Is that whats bothering yo lad...

If the Republicans don't get their act together and the country go into default, they can kiss it as a strong political party for the next two generations. And the tea people will shine temporary and eventually end up in obscurity and a good example on how a Democracy can be impaired t until the people rise and send them back into the hole they came out of.
What is going on is not because of the health care act, the deficit or socialism ect....
Is very simple, republikans cannot accept having a black president. Nothing more nothing less. Where were the tea party while Bush Jr sunk this country into the ground? In hiding because Jr was a white president...
To all those that will accused me of playing the race game...BULLSHIT. you are the first in line as a bigot and you know it. you are the first in line to use the benefits of the healthcare act and hide it from everyone, you are the first to denied that you are not a racist, you are the one who have benefit one way or another from the bills signed by the President and lie about it. You are the first in line as an un-American!!!! adios and hasta la vista.. viva el presidente!!! oops, now u are first in line to tell me to go back across the border. WRONG!!! A pure Texan and American here with 33 years in the military. My family name go back to the Pilgrims and five hundred years earlier. Sunrise is coming, time to saddle up and check out the ranch...

Yep, you're playing the old worn out race card. Maybe you need to extract your cement filled head from Obamas anal cavity and try to look at reality.
ObamaCare sucks, just like Obamas so-called leadership skills.

Check out the ranch?. You and your ilk live in a sheep pasture. Many of us hated Bush and his PATRIOT ACT. Now that Obozo keeps it going along with
signing the NDAA which is even worse, we don't hear even one bleat from
you Obama loving sheep against it. I guess you must have never swore an
oath to the Constitution MR big deal military man.

Your family name goes back to the Pilgrims?. I didn't realize Butter Ball
was the name of the first Thanksgiving turkey ate by the Pilgrims.
