Default Taxes are necessary; Trickle down never worked; Pubs clueless

Well obviously, as the President of the United States, with a deeper understanding of full extent of a Bush-Republican-decimated economy, taxes are necessary.

Tea-party downgraded Republicans are absolutely idiotic and clueless in failing to realize that 1) they don't have any useful ideas on how to resuscitate an economy that they wrecked and 2) that nothing but spending cuts in a post-Bush economy is about the most asinine crap in the history of mankind.

The Republican narrative and regressive obstructionist tactics have failed this country and cause more problems post-Bush. Pubs stink.

President Obama is right and don't you forget it either.

And then go promise Europe a bailout.

Can we get any more stupid than this ?

The upcoming "My Big Fat Greek Default" is going to bring the world to it's knees financially.

Yes, please tell us why you "don't cut spending" when you are overdrawn?

No, when you're trying to stimulate the economy, you don't cut back on anything. The government should be spending and encouraging others to spend by cutting taxes -- which of course means borrowing. But, the Bags have decided the debt trumps jobs, and Obama has agreed, so we're going to cut spending and raise taxes. Nice.

More Than 8.3 Million Jobs Created Since August 2003 In Longest Continuous Run Of Job Growth On Record

WASHINGTON -- Today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released new jobs figures - 18,000 jobs created in December. Since August 2003, more than 8.3 million jobs have been created, with more than 1.3 million jobs created throughout 2007. Our economy has now added jobs for 52 straight months - the longest period of uninterrupted job growth on record. The unemployment rate remains low at 5 percent. The U.S. economy benefits from a solid foundation, but we cannot take economic growth for granted and economic indicators have become increasingly mixed. President Bush will continue working with Congress to address the challenges our economy faces and help facilitate long-term economic growth, job growth, and better standards of living for all Americans.

The U.S. Economy Benefits From A Solid Foundation

* Real GDP grew at a strong 4.9 percent annual rate in the third quarter of 2007. The economy has now experienced six years of uninterrupted growth, averaging 2.8 percent a year since 2001.

* Real after-tax per capita personal income has risen by 11.7 percent - an average of more than $3,550 per person - since President Bush took office.

* Over the course of this Administration, productivity growth has averaged 2.6 percent per year. This growth is well above average productivity growth in the 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s."




Name calling is the only thing the left has.
