tex...spellcheck for God's sake.
But while I would love to pin the blame entirely on airhead Pelosi's democratic congress, I think the cause for the economy's collapse was the political stalemate that we had due to a democratic legislature with a republican white house. I think if the roles were reversed, it would have been the same. Another argument against partisan politics, for another thread.

Well sure. But this is (yet another) political garbage thread.

Has nothing to do with real Business, at all.

The idiots in the Political Section must have gotten sick of each other -- most of the rest of us have, long ago -- so they figure they can spew their garbage out in other guises on the other forums.

First two clues on idiotic political garbage in the Business Section -- "Obama" is in the title and it is posted by "Tonyandlclaire." You can usually be fairly sure that mindless idiocy follows.

Kind of makes you feel sorry for either Tony or Claire, huh?

i am always interested in reading economic news and i certainly think unemployment statistics count as economic news, regardless of the source.
i have an unrelated question i am hoping someone can answer. when you get a positive feedback from a person but it is a "quick reputation" is there any way to tell who sent that feedback? thank you.

The TRUTH about "Obama's Economy" .... is it was BUSH WHO CREATED THIS MESS ... not Obama.

That is the only TRUTH that applies here.

Bush led us into this ECONOMIC DEPRESSION with high unemployment ... and Obama is just trying to dig us out.

Frankly, I'm sick to death of all these sideline analysts who pretend to have all the answers. They all know what would make the economy work and know more about the factors affecting the economy than the president and his advisors. Boggles the mind the lunacy. Guess they were all in a coma the last 8 years when Bush was working on throwing this country into a Depression after wasting nearly a trillion dollars on a failed ideological war.

Obama inherited a tragedy and he's working through it. Far, far too early to condemn his efforts not even 8 months into his presidency. Those of you so-called "experts" who think you know what's best for the economy need to do more, and talk less.

as long as this is getting political, let's go there. obama was in the senate making policy before he was elected president. it is disingenuous for him to pretend to not contribute to our unemployment with his policy decisions. remember this:

When the Senate voted Tuesday of the Peru Trade Agreement, a critical test of U.S. economic policy that raised fundamental questions with regard to how this country will frame its economic ties to hemispheric neighbors, the five senators who would be president were the only members of the chamber who missed the vote.
If we are to trust their statements with regard to the issue: Biden and Dodd would have voted against the Peru deal, while Obama and Clinton would have supported it.
But senators who don't bother to show up get the out of being able to rewrite history – including their own statements.

these so-called free trade agreements have cost americans jobs.

now on top of that obama is blowing future american earnings to create jobs which aren't even being created.
