Obviously what Obama does is far more important than what you would do but I was still asking what YOU would do.
Also, I'd like to ask YOUR opinion on the depression in the 20's and 30's.
It was caused by a crash in an unregulated stock exchange that doesn't have the safety measures we do now, took over a decade to recover from and the main factor for US recovery was implementing socialist policies like the Hoover Dam.
(Cue more avoidance for now but next week I gaurantee Cary pops back up and claims regulation and socialist policies destroy everything they touch)
Being that I am not in any position of elected power, what I would do is completely moot.

What I asked is what YOUR hero, Barack Obama, was doing about your problem for two years while he had absolute power over Federal law. He's the man you need to ask your question to, not me.

Feel free to continue to bang the drum for Barack Obama's second term, despite the fact that he failed to address your issue when he had the chance.

As for the stock market crash and depression of the 20's and 30's, of course your assessment is entirely incorrect.(And your "safety measures" didn't do a thing to stop the crash of 2008, or the recession that we have languished in since).

The crash was NOT caused by lack of government regulation, it was caused, and extended, precisely BECAUSE of government:

And socialist policies of FDR did NOT get us out of the Great Depression, in fact, according to those who lived through it, including relatives and contemporary friends of theirs, the depression continued right up until the outset of World War 2.

And so you won't have to wait until next week: Government over-regulation and socialist policies DO INDEED destroy everything they touch. Neither have a place in our Constitutional Republic.

But the fact is Romney and Ryan have a PLAN on fixing the economic crisis we now face ,versus Obama and co who seem to have no clue on what to do.
Romney and and Ryan are going to run on their plan Obama has no plan to run on, instead he is going to run on people who are against me are evil.

Which is better? A bad plan that will make things worse or no plan? And I don't agree that the President has no plan.. In fact I think his plan is quite good.. If only the Retardicans Teabaggers would stop their treasonous ways and let him get America back to work..

SO you refuse to give an answer because any answer would either be a lie or completely go against everything you've been saying so far?

Thought so.

And you have the right to your opinion, however wrong you may be.

Did a bit of research, and do you mean THIS bill?

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,148003,00...

That appears to be the only bill affecting lawsuits that Bush signed. Thus, your initial assessment of the bill was a complete, blatant lie.

I support the bill.

Now, why didn't your hero do something about it when he had the chance? Perhaps because he agreed with it too?

No.
It did not sound anything at all like something he would say. I'm astounded that some folks fell for it as if it were truth.
A lot of leftist "news" sources are having to retract the story and apologize for posting it. Others are simply quietly deleting it, hoping to avoid getting any "egg on their faces".
Others are spreading it regardless of the fact that they know good and well it is utter BS.
The left's quest for power is not limited by any boundaries like truth or honor.
Shame on them.
Oh Please, I read it on a Ron Paul blog and it was very much like something he would say.

I'm sure you did. A lot of Ron Paul's die hard support comes from people just as kooky, in their own way, as the modern left:
