Tell that to all the dealerships that Obama had closed. Revenue lost to cities and towns.
Obama didn't save the car companies he saved his buddies in the Union.

Obama closed car dealerships? You are certainly entitled to make the biggest asshat out of yourself humanly possible - what a friggen moron

What about Obama? You complain Republicans sent jobs over seas but Obama gets a pass.
He let it happen.
How did President Obama let anything happen. We are still operating under the same trade laws the Republican Congress rubber stamped for Bush. Republicans have blocked attempts to change them. Dispite that President Obama has slowed the rate of offshoring and even brought a few jobs back. Romney wants to further deregulate business so it will easier for them to take unfair advantage of cheap foriegn labor. When I say "unfair advantage" I mean unfair to the American who lost his job and unfair to the foriegn laborer who has to work long hard hours for a bowl of rice.

The economic collapse lies directly at the feet of the housing collapse. Clinton deregulated the banks and lending institutions leading to sub-prime mortgages and inflated home prices.
Bush attempted twice during his administration to reinstate the regulations, but failed to get it passed with a democratic house and senate. Barney Frank and Frank Dodd cut sweet deals for themselves with Frannie and Fannie, and when the economy weakened, it all came crashing down.
If you want to blame the Bush adminstration, be sure to include the majority controlled house and senate.
Bush did not sent jobs overseas. Those laws and practices were already in place when he entered office. And no one complained until we hit this, how would Obama say it,'bump in the road with 23 million Americans unemployed and 43 million on food stamps.
If you're going to discuss these points, get the history straight.
Gramm Leach Blalley ring a bell. Which of of them are Democrats. I love how the Rat Wing is always blaming their our legislation on Democrats.

And how is President Obama suppose to stop GE from sending Jobs to China. Why don't you get some of your Rat Wing legistators to propose some laws to slow it down instead of blocking Democratic attempts to slow it down. You are the guys that want to degegulate business. Let them offshore our jobs and not pay any taxes.

Bush did no such thing!! All he tried to do is move Fannie and Freddie out of Congress and under the White House so they could partisapate in the same unregulated prectices the private market was engaged in. If he had succeeded F&F would have been hold many times more debt then they had. Bush wanted F&F to be able to buy all those none conforming loans that crashed the market.

>>True, that was the proximate cause.

Clinton deregulated the banks and lending institutions leading to sub-prime mortgages and inflated home prices.

>>Absurd. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley (ALL of them reTHUGlicans) Act deregulated banks and investment institutions, removing the regulations created by the New Deal-era Glass-Steagal Act. The deregulation, however, didn't automatically inflate home prices. The housing bubble caused that inflation.

Bush attempted twice during his administration to reinstate the regulations, but failed to get it passed with a democratic house and senate. Barney Frank and Frank Dodd cut sweet deals for themselves with Frannie and Fannie, and when the economy weakened, it all came crashing down.

>>More absurdity. Bush never attempted to reinstate the Glass-Steagal Act's regulations, nor could he have since he was head of the Executive, not Legislative, branch of government. I have no idea what your comments about Mr. Frank and CHRIS Dodd even mean.

If you want to blame the Bush adminstration, be sure to include the majority controlled house and senate.

>>Blame them for what? He didn't cause the recession, if that's what you mean. Nor did Congress, directly.

Bush did not sent jobs overseas. Those laws and practices were already in place when he entered office.

>>Repubs and Dems worked in the '80s and '90s to pass legislation that enabled companies to send jobs out of the country, but the companies themselves bear primary responsibility. They saw the opening up of China as an opportunity for bigger profits due to vast amounts of cheap labor.

And no one complained until we hit this, how would Obama say it,'bump in the road with 23 million Americans unemployed and 43 million on food stamps.

>>To be honest, which you aren't, it was a massive recession. Mr. Obama never called it anything of the sort, of course.

If you're going to discuss these points, get the history straight.

>>Try taking your own advice, fool.

In May 2003 Congress accelerated the tax cuts to make them effective immediately. In addition to reducing marginal income tax rates, Congress also lowered the tax rates on capital gains and dividends. It was at this point that economic growth took off. From May 2003 until December 2007 (when the recession caused by the global financial meltdown occurred) the economy created 8.1 million jobs, or 145,000 a month. By comparison, after the beginning of the 2001 recession and before the 2003 tax cuts, the economy was losing 103,000 jobs a month.
