Gotta love them effing imbeciles. They should be fired, and put in jail forever.

Obama had nothing to do with it. The housing crash was set in motion well before he took office. But feel free to blame everything on Obama. I am sure droughts, flooding, and hurricanes are his fault too.

I did not know the administration had an economic plan. Regardless, it has not only been disasterous, it has been an unmitigated disaster. Still the administration is making bad decisions, but Houston and Texas are being protected by some of those decisions by our Texas government.

Well Obama did say during his nomination victory speech that:

This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.

So it according to his own words, it is fair to blame weather phenomenon on him.

Man people are still using this? Stuck in 2010 bro? The economy is rebounding everywhere.... If the government would stop firing people, then there would be more gains.

Well if the commissioners would just stop raiding what toll road income they have to pay off sports stadium bonds, we'd be a tiny bit better off.

how is anything that happened between local authorities and wall street in 2006 obama's fault?

apparently, harris county folks didnt have any clue what was on the horizon and bet against dropping interest rates. but, you know who did have a clue? the wall street folks they refinanced with. they got an awesome deal. harris county got the crap one.

let's talk about the economic recovery funds we got from the obama administration/feds as part of the stimulus that the city has used to road and mass transportation infrastructure.

Nice attempt at rewriting history just to blame Obama

The stock market crashed in 2007-2008, hit bottom in March 2009 and the next 12 months went up 100%
I know, I know.... facts suck

Dopo it's pointless arguing with Obama Haters. Facts don't matter to them.
