Again, right on the money.

Add to that the key element in a recovery - consumers - who are NOT spending because they see all of the above and more coming at them from obama and his recovery-crippling policies and ideas.

It seems to me that some people just like to over complicate things. Maybe it makes them feel more important in a really big universe that just doesn't give a damn about them. I dunno. Whenever a progressive responds without a childish insult, their opening line always seems to be "It's not that simple." when it clearly is.

Again you're trying to get straight to the point and solve the problem by eliminating the source but apparently that's just too easy.

I really do love it when people regurgitate that graph from the White House.

Debunking the Obama Stimulus Chart Or “How To Make Numbers Say Anything You Want”

Raw data;



Made to look like this;

Instead of worrying about how high the line is, we’re only going to worry about how steep the line is. That way, the number will look good even if we keep losing jobs. Instead of charting how many jobs there are, we’re charting how many jobs we’re still losing.
I like this graph better;



Once again, obama has duped his supporters.
