Well, you are a liar, but we already know that.

The worst economy since the Depression, by the way, was when REAGAN was president.

It's not something Democrats forget.

Still waiting: where is the malaise?

PS: Maybe if Congress didn't take a year to pass the budget, it could get to work on promoting jobs.

If you graduated from high school economics class, you would (if you had passed) learned that employment is a trailing economic indicator.
It other words: George put this country into a recession and it took a while to get there.

Dufus, you don't even know what an "economic trailer" is.
If you want to understand unemployment, read Malthus. What you will soon see is known as the "Malthusian Effect".
Who the f**k is teaching you economics?

Actually, it's taken the Democrats 4 yeats to pass a budget, and they haven't done it yet. We haven't had a budget since Obama took office.
And if that's not idiotic enough, Obama has submitted only 2 budgets to congress in 4 years.... 2 in 4 years. Maybe golf and hoops is too much of a demand on him.
And, if that's not ludicrous enough, the sum total of votes for all two budgets of the four budgets we hired him to submit was ZERO. That's NONE, NADA, ZILCH. Obama couldn't get even one vote from the Congressional Black Caucus for either of the 2 budgdets he submitted of the 4 he should have submitted.
That means every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a loon.
So, if every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a loon, why the hell do they put him on the ballot?

Here's another one for you, define "Marxism"

I'm betting you're so ignorant you can't define any of the above terms. Which means, you wouldn't recognize a Marxist if one was brainwashing you with a bullhorn in your face.

Or, prove me wrong.

Define "Marxism" for all of us here.
I'm not the one calling Obama a Marxist...The bobbleheads are taking care of that.

Most of you sheep can't begin to comprehend real communism or Marxism, much less labeling our president as such...

I can't begin to count the dumb sheep at the Mittens rallies who used the words "communist" , "Marxist", "Muslim" and when asked how do these words describe our president, they fumble and babble on about some irrelevant bullshit to redirect the actual question...Just as you have done here, sheep.

My definitions on Marxism and communism are clear, that's how I know this country, nor our president, practices either, junior.

My God...

Three decades of empirical economic data shows that supply side economics does not work, sheep...

Investment growth weak under voodoo economics.

Employment growth weak under supply side economics.

Hourly earnings under that bullshit policy were flat or declined.

Did the supply side policies of Reagan and Bush work? The data says no.

And Willard would follow these same bullshit policies if he were elected. He lost. America won.

Rebuttal?

Can you say "stagflation"?

It looks to me like you Democrats have completely forgotten about what the economy was like when Reagan took office.

The federal debt was $994 billion when Reagan took office in 1981, and grew to $2.9 trillion when his second term ended in 1989...

But the expansion of stockownership to nearly 30% of American households still left more than two-thirds of the country shut out of direct benefits from the great bull market of the great bullshit age of Reagan. For the 70% of American households that still lacked any stake at all in the stock market, the Reagan economy was not quite so lustrous as it seemed to those enjoying the fruits of rising equity values.

You forgot to mention the most significant event of the previous century. If you recall, before Reagan took office we had retreated on all fronts of the Cold War and were fighting the Cold War right on our southern border in Central America. Reagan had to take us from the brink of defeat to a win. That had a cost.
And, there was a spillover benefit from Reagan leading us to victory in the Cold War. Every administration influences the direction of money from the government. With the Reagan administration, the money spent to win the Cold War created everything necessary for the dot-com boom to occur. Compare that with the f**k*ng thieves getting the money today from the Obama administration, dufus.
The next time you post, can you please associate your assertions with actual events of history.
During the REagan era, I became unemployed. It took me a few years of doing the most menial work to stay alive before I secured a professional position in a different industry. I'm sure you aren't familliar with "menial" work. It's the work you refuse to do, and the 30 million illegal aliens are here doing that work for you, while you don't even take advantage of the opportunities available to every American for 50 years to qualify yourself for a better-paying job.
Nope. You'd never consider doing that kind of work. It's beneath you. You, for some reason, think you are some kind of special form of human... just like the goddam Nazis.

Most of these whining children weren't even alive during Reagan's two terms. Most were raised during the times of a President raping a women in the White House and then promoting oral sex as a replacement for Baseball, and Apple Pie.
