We are "totally screwed" because the previous administration, the one you voted for (twice) left the Obama Administration an incredible economic disaster to deal with on day one.

2,000,000 jobs since the inauguration?

Another marker of the Bush "legacy"

Of course, I know conservatives are, by and large, proud of their ignorance. And considering they had Pres. Bush as their guiding light for the past 8 years, it doesn't need to be proven to thinking Americans that they are this way but they insist on reminding everyone anyway

I see someone had to go and inject some actual facts into a right wing circle jerk, aren't you the buzz kill!

And Obama/Biden/Pelosi adds insult to injury, by spending more money in 5 months than Bush/Clinton did during their entire administrations...

You think Bush was bad? ... just wait a few years ... you'll be turning Republican/Independent faster than this current Congress can pass B.S. money spending resolutions ...

OMG. The crooked and greedy financial institutions that swindled Americans into high risk mortgaging and home equity loans they were only too happy to promise to anyone, regardless of ability to pay, are now the "victims" because they conspired to swindle middle class Americans? Didn't we also just bail them out for their malfeasance?

Yea, we should have let the bankers fail outright, and only loaned to those who didnt award million dollar bonuses to those responsible.

But they got their bailouts anyway
