They've ruined every thriving economy until now. Lord only knows if the mess Bush left us in is recoverable, with all the bigots pushing non-support of President Obama because of his race.

The rest of the world must just sit by and shake their heads in wonderment. How uninformed can a country this size be?

Well many to most Americans are hurting financially right now and they'll go to the voting booths with empty pockets and drained hopes.

So in essence "THE REDCOATS ARE COMING! - THE REDCOATS ARE COMING!" and whether they'll do better time will tell.

All they know is that the Democratic run government since 2007 under two different POTUS isn't working and in fact have gone against the will of the people enough times.

All economists that said the economy was going to crash. All say we would recover without govt "help" quicker. All have backed up their beliefs with sound economic reasonimg and history.

There are hundreds of other economists that have said the same thing. These were just the ones that come to mind.

Obama is pushing a lot of the same things Clinton was pushing.

Did republicans oppose Clinton because of his race or are you just a political hack?

So in your world we must accept the failed policies of an incompetent president, simply because he is black? This is typical of the liberal contempt for minorities, in which a different "standard" is applied to one's performance, relative to thier particular race. It is almost embarassing, but that really sounds like you are................., well................................... racist. Gee, I used a liberal word.

I guess a rational person, unlike a liberal, does not fear the dreaded worst dispersion that one can possibly recieve (being called a "racist"). Most Americans want a competent president who can lower unemployment and improve the economic situation. Obama is not that man- he is incompetent, regardless of his color, and we have learned to not judge a man by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. Obama is markedly lacking in character- only a fool would be happy with his performance.

It has nothing to do with race. Even less to do with those in opposition being uninformed. Anyone that isn't an ideological zealot can see Obama's policies aren't working.

Keep trying to use the same worn out liberal talking points. The law of averages says sooner or later one of them may work for you. After all even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I find it interesting that you would quote part which makes the argument from Newsweek flat out wring..

So newsweek is arguing that there would be fewer jobs, and larger deficits if there was NO RESPONSE by the GOP... And what in the world makes you think there would be NO RESPONSE?

What economists would that be because the economists I've read support the fact that government extended the recession in the 1930's.. Just like they are doing now..
