Newsweek.

It might as well have been in Pravda. It has all the fanciful relevence of suggesting that the moon would have exploded if the republicans had been in power. It is the desperate attempt of the liberals to divert attention from Obama's gross economic failures- alternate universe theories. That is just hilarious.

I wonder if Elvis would have been resurrected if McCain had been elected?

Sane people deal with reality. Here is Obama's reality-

1. $1.5 trillion annual deficits
2. $14 trillion debt
3. declining GDP
4. Unemployment at 9.5% and rising (real unemployment close to 20%)
5. record mortgage defaults
6. home prices sinking

Reality is hard to face when one has created a huge mess. It is better to live in the fanciful world of "what ifs" when one is a failure. This is the political version of a escapist drug trip to avoid reality. Dump Obama and the dems.

Did they teach you to be "incurious" in your medical school?

The difference is this is a supposition based in math. Your statement; however, is a non sequitur.

no one is saying the economy was in great shape when obama took over, just that he has made things far worse.
