The fact that many people actually believe that Barney Frank caused the mortgage melt down or that Obama is responsible for crashing the economy is proof of the effectiveness of the Right Wing propaganda blitz even if it is all lies. I truly fear for the future of our Country.
Just a little payback for all the abuse and lies you libs heaped on Bush, what goes around comes around, enjoy the few remaining months Obama has left.

I wouldn't call unelected tyrants willing to kill their own citizens "superior" to ours and you shouldn't either.
You know without the USA to buy their massive industrial output, they're screwed too. Their own people can't afford to buy these things. If push came to shove aND WE BLOCKED ALL FREIGHT FROM cHINA at our ports, they would be finished.
China has been gaining political power all across the Globe and owns quiet a bit of our debt.

You are right about China needing the US now as we are their biggest customer. TRADE WAR??? Risky, but something to consider.

As for unelected, that is true BUT seriously, how much democracy do we have in this country with the GLOBALISTS controling information flow?

We have to have some one other to blame for our own complacency, greed and debt. These two morons (Bush & Obama) and neither can any other President be held accountable for this Republic present economic condition. The National debt could have been resolved when in the "million". Once past the "billion" point, this Republic became insolvent. And drifted into a perpetual state of child like denial. From the criminals in Washington down to the people. You can "NEVER" repair a "trillion" dollar debt! and it's childish to continue playing make believe with it. The economy can be repaired if the corporate criminals and Congressional criminals began functioning in the peoples interest.
Our main problem is we have too many freeloaders, loafers, lay abouts and non producers to support year after year and incredibly year after year we allow more into the country.

The fact is that Obama was handed a catastrophic economy, two very expensive wars, and a Right Wing Neo-Con institution entrenched in the Government. It would be hard for any President to fix all of that in a short time even if they did not have the obstructionists the Neo-Cons have entrenched in Washington fighting EVERYTHING Obama attempts, and are now busy entrenching themselves at the state level for the purpose of changing election laws to benefit themselves.
No, he waSN'T handed it, he begged for it and made all kinds of wild claims he could never keep. He sounds like a broken record, tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich.

He is done. His black support has dropped significantly:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-part...
"According to The Post-ABC News poll released yesterday, Obama went from an 83 percent “strongly favorable” rating among blacks in April to 58 percent. Yes, they are still in his corner. But this is a 26-point drop in five months. Not only does this show that African Americans are as dyspeptic as the rest of the country, but it also is a reflection of the simmering frustration enunciated by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) in Detroit in August. The message from blacks to Obama in this stunning poll is “We love ya, bruh, but damn..."
The gig is up, the black community now knows that Obama is an Uncle Tom. And don't forget that the Jews know that they are being sold out to the Muslims.
It's totally Carteresque. Our leftist friends will blame the republicans, conservatives and the dog next door for the falling poll numbers, disregrding the fact that Obama still retains most of the power of MSM, and loons from mediamatters, Kos, the underground, et al. They will continue to blindly support failed and dangerous policies. They will, much to their peril, ignore all the groups that are peeling away until it's too late. Then Obama will, like Carter, spend the balance of his life crictizing his successor, his country, and meddling into affairs of state, creating havoc.

For FY2009, Speaker of the House Stretch Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Dingy Reid bypassed George Bush completely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Bam Bam the wrecking ball could take office. They also passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY2009 budget. Obama supported it as a senator, and he signed the omnibus bill as president.
Bam Bam's spending is different from the TARP money that inflated Bush's final deficit in 2008, in that Bam Bam was spending borrowed money, not lending. Unlike TARP, the stimulus spending will never be paid back.
Bam Bam inherited a deficit that he voted for and then expanded that deficit four-fold since he took office.
Makes sense to me. And i distinctly remember 2 grinning buffoons hovering over Bush's shoulder at the TARP signing, any guess as to who they were?

3 years is plenty of time to turn an economy around. Just like FDR extended the great depression 7 years with the new deal Bam Bam is doing the same with his own depression. His keynesian economic model has never met one metric that all his economists stated it would. They have just made everything worse.
Obumbles's has concentrated almost exclusively on his stated goal of wealth re-distribution, now he realizes it's a failure and he has to concentrate on his re-election., thus all his blather about creating jobs.

The only way his scheme could ever work would be during a period of prosperity and of course that would coincide with republican control and he could never be elected then.

From one in the inner circle, to which our last four Presidents, the Bushes, Clinton and Obama, get their marchings orders from.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develope our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government."

True Blame for the bad economy rests with the GOP! Yesterday, the GOP leadership in Congress sent a poilitical threat letter to Bernanke to stop propping up the economy? Essentially the GOP Leadership of both House & Senate threatened Bernanke with political repercussions if he continued to try and jumpstart our economy. If there was any doubt that the GOP was sabotaging our economy to sucker us into voting for those mountebanks again, that letter to Fed Chairman Bernanke erased all doubt!

What a conservative. Obama isn't to blame when you have a congress of tea party that believe in cutting and slash and burn trick to fix the Economy doesn't take rocket science to understand that people don't care bout anything else but jobs and u somehow think that tax cuts and saying no to everything is gonna be the solution.

We've all seen the video by now of Obama standing in front of the bridge connecting GOP Senate Minority Leader McConnell's state of Kentucky to GOP House Speaker John Boehner's state of Ohio. That bridge has been deemed "functionally obsolete" because this old bridge that was designed to carry 65,000 cars a day now carries well over 200,000.

Despite Obama's Jobs bill being comprised of a majority of Republican ideas, McConnell's response was to criticize the President for campaigning (on the day of the Republican Presidential debate???- Did someone not tell Mitch the campaign season has begun???) and asked Obama to come back and negotiate. Negotiate???

Negotiate what MITCH??? You and the GOP have obstructed every Obama proposal even when they are comprised of GOP ideas.

While our nations infrastructure is falling apart, our national education system is lagging behind other nations, and millions of jobs are being sent overseas, there can be no doubt now that the rich elitist GOP mountebanks on Capitol Hill are purposely sabotaging our economy to sucker us into voting for the GOP again. One need only look at their letter to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke yesterday if one had any doubt. They are so blinded by either their corporate contributors or their racial hatred of Obama that they are willing to sacrifice our nation's economy, AGAIN!!!

Send the GOP a message in 2012 that our representatives serve all the people of the United States of America, not just their wealthy corporate contributors! Vote the obstructionist GOP out of office!!!

Could you possibly be a bigger brainwashed idiot?

The 2006 midterm Pelosi/Reid democrat-controlled House and Senate (110th congress) were the death knell.

George Bush and the GOP-controlled congress brought us back from the dot-com bust and 9/11, creating the DHS and rebuilding the intel infrastructure that Clinton decimated.

Under Bush and the GOP we had all-time record-high employment, record-high government revenues, a record 52 consecutive months of job growth, 6.8 million new jobs, the DOW near 14,000, the deficit reduced to $161 billion, GDP growth at 3.5%, and unemployment at a nominal 4.2 - 4.5%.

GDP grew about 29.7% from 2003 to 2008, and income tax revenues grew nearly 56% during that same time.....ALL-TIME RECORDS.

What happened after the Pelosi/Reid democrat cabal took control of the House AND Senate after the 2006 midterms (110th congress)?

Let's see....

Since the democrats took control after the 2006 midterms (Jan 3rd, 2007), the Pelosi/Reid controlled 110th congress have looted the treasury for nearly $6 trillion and increased the deficit by $1.26 trillion, or 776%.(The republican congress had reduced the deficit from a high of $412 billion in FY 2004 to $319b in FY 2005, to $248b in FY 2006, and ultimately to $161b in FY 2007).

Those same democrats also increased the National Debt from $8.67 trillion to $14.56 trillion -- an increase of $5.89 trillion or 68% AND increased the Debt Limit from $8.965 trillion to $14.29 trillion -- an increase of $5.33 trillion or 59.4%.....while losing 6.8 million jobs.

And who could forget that those same democrats turned the projected $800 billion SURPLUS over the ten-year period FY 2008-2017 into a $9.7 trillion DEFICIT -- a $10.5 trillion worsening of the budget outlook.

IN ADDITION to creating record debt and record deficits, they've delivered record poverty, record welfare, record food stamp enrollment, record home foreclosures, record-low housing values, record-low business startups, record-low private-sector pay, record-high goverment-pay, record-high underemployment, record-high inflation, record-high economic stagnation, record-high bank closures, and doubled unemployment. Along with backroom deals, bribes, government takeovers of our economy, thousands of ruinous new taxes and regulations, billions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions, the ruination of our healthcare system, made a mockery of congress, and utterly crippled business, confidence, and prosperity in America.

(CNN)-- For the first time ever, a slight majority of Americans blame President Barack Obama for the country's struggling economy, according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll released Wednesday.

But the same poll showed Americans fault former President George W. Bush even more, a trend that's remained since Bush left the White House in January 2009 amid the recession.
