When GW Bush left office, the economy nearly crashed. Even after the March 2009 bail-outs, we've been on life support, thanks to the GOP.
Do you really think bailing out GM, AIG and the major banks was going to be cheap? Not to mention millions of Americans out of work and in need of unemployment benefits.
Think again.
We all know the simulus failed, so what makes you think keeping two awful companies like GM and AIG was worth it?

Solyndra and all the other waste of money venture capitale efforts by Obama is not good for our contry in the long run - waste of taxpayer money, disp$hit.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell tonight threw a wet blanket on Sean Hannity's longtime obsession with attacking President Obama over Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers.

During an interview with Powell on his Fox News show, Hannity said that he finds Obama to be "one of the most divisive figures in -- that I've witnessed in politics today."

Powell responded: "[T]hat's a term that's being used rather freely. I don't think he's that divisive an issue." Powell then asked, "What could have been more divisive than, when President Obama was inaugurated, for a number of Republicans, friends of mine, and a number of commentators to say,'We're going to destroy him. We're going to destroy him'?"

Colin Powell Brushes Away Hannity’s Attack Dogs

“I don't know Bill Ayers from the man in the moon. Bill Ayers and Reverend Wright are just passing things through his life.…Everybody tries to make it the defining issue of the 2008 campaign. And guess what, the American people heard it, they heard all the attacks, they heard all the things that were said about the Reverend Wright issue… and they elected him president.”

A Case Study in Right-Wing Media Malpractice from Breitbart.com

For Breitbart.com , the decision to commit substantial editorial resources to the president's past had an immediate opportunity cost: there'd be fewer pieces on his first term in office and less opportunity to present arguments about why conservative policies would better serve the country. The decision seemed strange to me. Conservative media was around during the 2008 election. Was there really relevant information that they'd failed to uncover at the time? And while President Obama surprised civil libertarians with his governing choices, weren't the things conservatives hated about him -- the health-care bill, the Keynesian stimulus, the "green jobs" program -- basically exactly what you'd expect from the campaign he ran, or from any liberal Democrat?

Now we need not speculate about Breitbart.com 's coverage decision. With the opportunity cost in mind, we can look at the fruits of "The Vetting" so far. I submit that this line of coverage has been an utter waste of time, whether measured for its impact on GOP electoral chances or advancing conservative ideas or holding politicians accountable via the media.....

....They are hardly the only conservative media organizations squandering their resources. How many hours of conservative attention did various birthers waste? Having moved on from Birtherism, WorldNetDaily is now trying to prove that love letters attributed to a young Obama were actually ghostwritten for him. Glenn Beck has spun too many conspiracy theories about the president to count. I've lost track of how many National Review writers have truncated an Obama quote on America exceptionalism to assert that he took a position opposite of what he actually said. One of their staffers, Andy McCarthy, wrote a book asserting that Obama leads the left in its alliance with our Islamist enemy in a grand jihad against America. And that's just the beginning.

On Twitter yesterday, conservative journalist John Tabin took issue with my argument that these pathologies, common to many (though not all) conservative media outlets, are one obstacle to a conservatism that focuses on and achieves the passage of reform legislation on taxes, spending, and entitlements. So I'll close by posing a question to him. Breitbart.com is read largely by movement conservatives. Does it help or hurt the conservative cause when they focus on the issues raised in "The Vetting" series?

Democrats enjoy a slight advantage over their Republican challengers in three key Senate races in Ohio, Florida and Virginia, according to three new NBC-Marist polls released Thursday.
Democrats lead by varying margins in a series of contests that could determine whether Republicans are able to achieve the net-gain of four seats they need to retake control of the Senate if President Barack Obama wins re-election; they need to pick up just three seats if the Democratic incumbent loses.

1) The stimulus did not fail at all. It lowered the unemployment rate 1 1/2% & helped turn a shrinking economy into a growing one.

2) AIG insured all the financial institutions against certain losses. Bailing out AIG was merely a mechanism to help keep all their clients from failing.

3) We will the bulk of our GM money back. Meanwhile we are not paying for their unemployment or getting stick paying their pension program.

4) Solyndra was a good investment at the time. If you don't know this, you're am idiot.

5) Moving away from oil is nothing but GOOD for this country. Just think if those hundreds of billions that leave our borders every year for oil, could be spent in our economy. We do not have the oil reserves to supply all our oil needs regardless of what the moronic right says.

The assertion that no one remembers Obama at Columbia is a lie promulgated by Wayne Root who was running for VP in the Libertarian Party and has been debunked.

Even a rabid right winger like Scotty Starnes remembers Obama at Columbia.

The majority of lawyers working for large firms never see the inside of a courtroom.
You’re a liar and a total idiot DB.
Especially when there/s a transfer program betwixt colleges.

I guarantee you that a large percentage of Columbia & Harvard Law students smoked dope.
