LMFAO! What a whiny little baby you are.

I thought you just said you were a "big girl" and could take it. You're about three-years-old emotionally.

I've seen your nasty name-calling, hypocrite.

Grow up and act like the adult you claim to be.

BTW, I stand by my statement. It suits you to a T.

Reality? I'll tell you about reality. Reality is, the Republican party has painted themselves into the corner. They owned all three branches of government from 2001-2008 and turned the booming eagain for a hundred years and the world will be much better off without them.
I had to remove a portion of your post.

The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.

Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%.

Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people.

This was mostly the opposite of what President Obama has produced, with his neo-Marxist Obamanomics, particularly unemployment more than twice as high, declining middle class incomes, soaring poverty, weak job growth, stagnant stock market values, collapsing business investment, and negligible growth in GDP.

Of course, the Bush tax cut boom was ended by the 2008 financial crisis. But as discussed in many previous columns, that was caused by the excessive overregulation of President Clinton’s home ownership promotion policies, creating the subprime mortgage market and the housing bubble, and by President Bush’s cheap dollar monetary policies. Obama’s foolish argument that the Bush tax cuts caused the 2008-2009 recession is so dishonest that abusive propaganda alone should disqualify him from office.

Obama’s gleeful termination of the Bush tax cuts will produce just the opposite results of those tax cuts. The combination of all the tax rate increases, along with Obama’s abusive overregulation, and the Fed’s continued mischief, will throw the economy back into recession next year. Unemployment will soar back into double digits, breaking the post depression record of 10.8%. The deficit will soar to over $2 trillion, setting new all time world records. The national debt as a percent of GDP will gallop past Greece.

Middle class incomes will plummet further. Poverty will soar to new all time records.

We can’t afford the Bush tax cuts, as Obama says? We can’t afford to terminate them. Over the past 45 years, every time the capital gains tax rate has been increased, capital gains revenues have declined rather than increased. Obama’s nearly 60% increase in that rate will have the same effect. After the Bush cut in taxes on dividends, dividends paid soared, and so did taxes paid on those dividends. Obama’s near tripling of that tax will have the opposite effect as well. Indeed, if the economy declines back into renewed recession, total federal revenues will decline rather than increase.

Obama’s ploy of blaming all of this on the Republicans will not work this time. The public knows the Bush tax cuts were adopted into law by the Republicans, with complete Republican control of Congress and the White House at the time. It will be too obvious that it took President Obama and his new neo-Marxist Democrat Party to let them expire.

Enjoy the new Obama recession. You and your neighbors voted for it.

Even with today’s disappointing and troubling jobs report, private sector job creation under President Obama has far exceeded private sector job creation under President Bush. 40 months into his presidential term, there are currently more private sector jobs in the economy than when Obama came into office. At the same point in President Bush’s term, the total number of private sector jobs was still down 1.7 percent from where it began....But there is one area of job creation where President Bush clearly outshines President Obama: the public sector. Public sector employment is now down 608,000 workers since January 2009, a 2.7 percent decline. At the same point in President Bush’s term, public sector employment was up 3.7 percent. If, over the past 40 months, public sector employment had grown at the same pace as it did in President Bush’s first term, there would be 1.4 million additional people at work right now. That’d be enough to bring the unemployment rate down by nearly a full percentage point.

Are you serious? I'm only replying to YOUR posts since last night where you criticize me, whine to X-Man about me, and mention my name and/or reference me countless times, you hypocrite.

Listen up, Missy. You are better than NO ONE here and YOU are participating in what you call "bullying and harassment" as much as anyone.

Do you ever take a long, honest look in the mirror? YOU are the one perpetuating this nonsense, and you won't quit until you have the very last word.

Have it. I'm sick of you and your pathetic hypocrisy and whining.

Stop begging for my attention. You're an energy drain.

That’d be enough to bring the unemployment rate down by nearly a full percentage point.
(cont.)(See Chart at link.)
So without trying to either promote or criticize President Bush, an objective summary of his eight years would be:
&#9702; 32 months of job loses, totaling 2.6 million, caused by the dot-com recession and the 9-11 terrorist attacks,
&#9702;51 months of job growth following the 2003 tax cuts, totaling 8.1 million new jobs.
&#9702;13 months of sharp job losses, totaling 4.4 million, due primarily to the financial crisis.

Obviously, Bush made plenty of mistakes, and the final year of the his Administration was an economic nightmare with soaring unemployment. The debate continues over the cause of the financial crisis, whether it was government malfeasance through the Federal Reserve, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, or the simplistic “greed on Wall Street” we hear from Obama. But nobody can possibly make a case that the tax cuts of 2003 somehow caused the banking crisis and job losses of 2008.

The Bush tax cuts of 2003 demonstrated, for the third time, that reducing tax rates is an effective action the government can take to help the private sector generate more jobs and more prosperity. The first time was under President Kennedy in the Sixties. The second time was under President Reagan in the eighties.

But Obama and the Democrats are invested in raising, rather than lowering tax rates, and expanding the power of government through huge spending increases. Their hope is to exploit the generally negative public attitude toward George W. Bush and prevent voters from examining the data or remembering that more than four years of continuous job growth followed the tax cuts of 2003.

Another point of dishonesty in the National Journal article is the apples to oranges comparison. The article judges the Bush jobs record from the beginning of his administration, when the economy was already in recession. If Obama were judged on the same standard he would now be at minus 3.4 million jobs. But the National Journal scores Obama at Plus 573,000 by starting the count in his 12th month, even though his policy response, the trillion dollar stimulus, was enacted in third week of his Presidency, on the promise that it would, in his words,“immediately jumpstart job creation.”
