This is basically a crapshoot, but there are some facts behind it. Since our economy is driven by spending and the Republicans SUPPOSEDLY want to cut spending, it WOULD lead to an immediate double dip recession. The Republicans can try to argue recovery might be faster that way once it arrived, but it would be after at least a 6 month dip.

our economy is driven by PRIVATE SECTOR spending, NOT government spending.

and also driven largely by confidence and perception, which the powers that be seem unable to instill.

what about illustrating their non-bias by reminding people of the comments made by assistant managing editor at NEWSWEEK, Evan Thomas when on MSNBC:

"I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God."

Newsweek

Is that also ad
hominem?
Of course it is, because they used fancy words to say... "You disagreed with me, so therefore you are bad!"

Yawn...


Another static model?

How predictable was that?


"By combing through a variety of studies and projections from nonpartisan economic sources, we here at Gaggle headquarters have found that if Republicans were in charge from January 2009 onward—and if they were now given carte blanche to enact the proposals they want to—the projected 2010–2020 deficits would be larger than they are under Obama, and fewer people would probably be employed."

Who specifically are "we here at Gaggle headquarters", and what are their qualification and research methods?

Combing through?

Seriously?


I guess if you don't have real research to back up your wild claims inventing facts works too (see AGW).

When have any of them STOPPED spending our money? The deficit has grown because the Democrats in control have continued to spend our money. Before "these folks" can start spending our money again, doesn't it have to stop first? Seriously .
