It is government spending and liberal policies that is the cause
of full blown depressions.
When the market is in need of a correction...its best to leave
it play its self out.
A large crash like in 2008 should have quickly recovered, but
it did not, because of what Bush and later on Obama did.
Too much spending and too much in the way of Fed. regs.
Obama prevented the recovery....he only made things much worse.
And it costed the average working American a great deal money.

People still talk as if the deficit were exploding, as if the United States budget were on an unsustainable path; in fact, the deficit is falling more rapidly than it has for generations, it is already down to sustainable levels, and it is too small given the state of the economy.
Start with the raw numbers. Americas budget deficit soared after the 2008 financial crisis and the recession that went with it, as revenue plunged and spending on unemployment benefits and other safety-net programs rose. And this rise in the deficit was a good thing! Federal spending helped sustain the economy at a time when the private sector was in panicked retreat; arguably, the stabilizing role of a large government was the main reason the Great Recession didnt turn into a full replay of the Great Depression.
But after peaking in 2009 at $1.4 trillion, the deficit began coming down. The Congressional Budget Office expects the deficit for fiscal 2013 (which began in October and is almost half over) to be $845 billion. That may still sound like a big number, but given the state of the economy it really isnt.
Bear in mind that the budget doesnt have to be balanced to put us on a fiscally sustainable path; all we need is a deficit small enough that debt grows more slowly than the economy. To take the classic example, America never did pay off the debt from World War II in fact, our debt doubled in the 30 years that followed the war. But debt as a percentage of G.D.P. fell by three-quarters over the same period.

Stop being such a dummy:
Right now, a sustainable deficit would be around $460 billion. The actual deficit is bigger than that. But according to new estimates by the budget office, half of our current deficit reflects the effects of a still-depressed economy. The cyclically adjusted deficit what the deficit would be if we were near full employment is only about $423 billion, which puts it in the sustainable range; next year the budget office expects that number to fall to just $172 billion. And thats why budget office projections show the nations debt position more or less stable over the next decade.
So we do not, repeat do not, face any kind of deficit crisis either now or for years to come
Put it this way: Smart fiscal policy involves having the government spend when the private sector wont, supporting the economy when it is weak and reducing debt only when it is strong. Yet the cyclically adjusted deficit as a share of G.D.P. is currently about what it was in 2006, at the height of the housing boom and it is headed down.
Yes, well want to reduce deficits once the economy recovers, and there are gratifying signs that a solid recovery is finally under way. But unemployment, especially long-term unemployment, is still unacceptably high.The boom, not the slump, is the time for austerity, John Maynard Keynes declared many years ago. He was right all you have to do is look at Europe to see the disastrous effects of austerity on weak economies. And this is still nothing like a boom.

We're well into the recovery stooge at least according to all but a couple economic indicators which are related.
Housing and unemployment?
Housing is way off due to the overbuilding and over financing made
possible by the lack of oversight during the Bush era that allowed folks such as Angelo Mozilo to run wild. And___unemployment in the construction and related arena's still hovers at over 16% nationally and much higher in the explosive growth areas, FL, NV etc.
Further, during the Bush era the construction industry was even further propelled by weather calamities such as a half dozen hurricanes in Florida which caused massive damage, and of course the big one Katrina.
Obviously a POTUS has no control over ugly weather but weather does impact the economy both ways.
