Thats not even close to true. Before Obama took the oath of office the collapse stopped collapsing and plans were put into place to stabalize the economy.

Which is why McCain lost.. 2 individuals with similar policies, people will pick "that one".. Had McCain had true conservative values and policies, he might actually have one..

Jobs are going abroad because government keeps regulating and pushing businesses abroad.. The choice is to stop villifying businesses and understand that we need them to provide employment, to pay taxes, so society can benefit. Instead we have policies in place that make these people out to be bad, bad, people.. No wonder they are leaving..

We were losing over 700,000 jobs a month when you are claiming the crashing stopped. Since Stimulus money started going out the door, the job loss rate started slowing. That is fact, not speculation.
