The great "irony" is your refusal to admit the great failure of our times has been Republican "trickle down" economics, based on the faulty premise that the more government cuts taxes, the more revenue is generated.
The simple fact is, the tax breaks never generated enough new revenue to compensate for what was lost.
So, yes, we are fighting our way out of the ashes, all right. Five terms worth of failed GOP economics.

I have done well under the last 5 presidents, want to hazard a guess as to why? Right now my wife and I are living well and spending money, making employment for others. I benefit from trickle down and others benefit from our spending.

However, if people choose to be indolent and unambitious they'll likely get left behind.

Kind of difficult to get things done when the sole goal of the opposition party is to make the president look bad, not help get the country back on its feet.
The country IS on it's feet. Socialized medicine aka single payer, which is the goal of this administration, is NOT the will of the people. Thank God someone is trying to stop it.

Obama needs no help looking bad. He's doing a fine job all by himself. The lies and deceit have become legendary.

Obama is hoping to beat the Republicans to it since originally that was the goal of TR and the Progressive Republicans.

Look at Slovakia, Poland, Belgium, Usbekistan, Chile, Ecuador....the list a long and shining example of what happens to economies when government gets out of the way.

And here in America, the Magic Negro exclaims that "You didn't build that!" and then proceeds to choke economic freedom right out of America's lifeblood.

This is the sort of ironic plot one finds in fiction novels....

..but Truth is stranger than fiction.

Obama, what difference does it make. He's not from America and Passport to leave the country once he finishes driving the country in the ground.

None of this challenges my fundamental statement, that the immense debt we have today was caused by GOP "trickle down" economics.

Your citations argue the White House was not culpable for the real estate meltdown.

But they fail to exonerate the GOP Majority in Congress for allowing the crisis to careen out of control.

Pointing the finger at Obama doesn't get the Republican congressional majority off the hook for its laxity.

But the biggest issue is the enormous federal deficit which was created by GOP "trickle down" economics.

Check and mate.

Tax receipts went up every year under Bush. Normally the congres, not the president controls the budget and spending, however Oblama and dirty Harry are using legislative crookery to prevent any budgets or votes on budgets, to enable the obscene spending and more obscene deficits.

Where are the jobs the $85 billion a month are supposed to be creating? Seems like the WS fatcats are doing well.

Ten minutes of research shows that Massachusetts' Romneycare is a bad idea at the state level.

The plan is for Obamacare to be a disaster at the national level, followed by the inevitable single payer.

check and mate? hogwash. I showed you Bush sounded the alarm on the impending mortgage crisis and Barney Frank had a meltdown on the floor of the House.

Would you like to see the evidence of the dems culpability in creating it in the first place? It started with the CRA.

Impossible to make the situation better when all the president cares about is wealth redistribution, paying tribute to the tree huggers and does zero to create jobs.
When Oblamer proposes something useful I'm sure the repubs will get on board. Right now the country is watching the disastrous healthcare implosion created by the dems.
The usual repertoire of GOP propaganda here.

Wealth redistribution? Yes, I recall how under GW Bush,$125 billion per year in tax payer money was given out to wealthy corporations like XOM and IBM as free stipends.

Nothing like catering to the rich, eh? But that's the GOP way.

You have the freedom to choose to pay to send your child to parochial school or homeschool him.
You don't have the right to practice your religion in public schools.
Period. Public education funds are not to go to parochial or private schools.
(Sorry it took so long to get back to you. It's been a rather eventful day. Bought a used motorcycle for hubby today.)

But you'd have to have a good reason why education funds cannot go to any school of any parent's choosing.

If we are truly "the land of the free", religious freedom is also a freedom.

Any religious private school that provided a better education but taught the tenets of that religious belief system should be provided to parents because of their freedom to choose.

Why would taxpayers deny them this freedom?

LOL...so the fix is what?$25 per hour minimum wage?$50? Pool all private earnings and hand it out equally?

Let a progressive government run everything?

You blame the GOP for Obama's $6 trillion in new debt?

The GOP is behind union pensions bankrupting cities?

The GOP started the Dept. of Education money pit?

This country started going to sh*t immediately after LBJ's State of the Union address on January 8, 1964. Follow the money and his 'war on poverty.'
