Or, at least that's what I predict from our enlightened leftists brethren and sistren.

Sadly, I don't expect any of them to use introspection and review whether their spoon fed opinions should be questioned, or whether their blind Obamatronic devotion is warranted.

In any event ... here goes.

Using US GDP results we find that the Bush economy had 30 quarters of growth ... reaching as high as 5.4% ... one quarter of no growth and one quarter of -1.9% growth (That's means negative growth, or contraction.) and the reverse quarter only occurring during the quarter that Obama was elected.

Since then dearest leader's program of "HOPENCHANGE" has resulted in 2 negative quarters, coming in at -3.3% and -3.8%.

That's right, after the stimulus program to "FIX" the disaster that was the Bush economy made things exactly twice as bad as what he inherited. His two quarters are 273% worse than Bush's WORST 2 quarters. Bush's average growth was an average growth of 2.16% GDP annually ... granted, an anemic performance at best. OTOH dearest leader's average performance is contraction at a rate of -3.55% annually.

Ahhhh ... But jobs is the isssue, right?

Let's review. During 8 years of Bush the UE rate ranged from 4.2% 7.2% and averaged 5.28%. OTOH ... Obama's economy has averaged 8.99% with a peak of 9.8%. That's right ... 33.3% worse than the Bush economy at their worst each and 70.3% worse on average than the Bush economy.

But the budget ... Bush spent us into oblivion, or so y'all insisted. Again ... let's review. The Bush years had a balance of payments averaging a deficit of -2.29% of GDP. It ranged, by quarter, from a best of +2.4% of GDP to a worst of -4.7% of GDP. Abysmal? Agreed.

OTOH ... dearest leader and his dembot congress averaged a -7.02%, and as high as -8.9% of GDP and still rising, of GDP to date. That's right ... 49.4% higher than Bush at his worst, and when dealing with a dem congress which included Obama. Oh ... not to short his achievements, his average budget is 206.6% higher than the average Bush deficit as compared to GDP.

Now ... who has the stones to defend this abysmal performance?

Might I even hope that one of you will come to your senses and denounce the madness?

Whatever you do ... please don't try the ever lame B-B-BUT B-B-B-BOOOOSH!!!! as it merely reinforces idea that you have nothing left in the intellectual tank and are merely parroting the party line.

OH DEAR! (http://www.tradingeconomics.com/Economics/GDP-Growth.aspx?Symbol=USD)

Look, you have to spend money to avoid bankruptcy. It was Bush's failed policies that put us into this mess with his illegal war of choice and promoting the deregulation that led to the irresponsible lending of the banks. If Bush had not have left the economy in such bad shape, we would still be living on Clinton's surpluses. It's not Obama's fault that he inherited the worse economy since the Great Depression. Obama turned the economy around and it only takes a little bit of time.

Who cares if the growth that we see is actually due to the increase of government spending? Who cares if our brilliant policy to get out of financial trouble is to go into more debt? Who cares if government spending increases temporarily if it is the only way to stave off a national economic disaster?

All you right wing republikooks have any more are your talking points that are shoved down your throat by Fox.

When BC handed over the country to GW Bush, he gave him a gold plated Ferrari.............GW gave Obama a beat-up Datsun.

I think the answer is simple....if you've read one of his posts, you've read them all, and if you happen to miss one here....apparently there are 9 other sites where you can get a reprint.
I've found that I can skip over his V.I.Posts, and still figure out his latest brain fart, from what's quoted in the replies.

The answer is that the entire bunch of the far left delved in and out of this thread over 1,100 times.

They fact checked it crazily against every moonbat crazy blog in the blogiverse.

And, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, instead of:

1 - Reexamine their opinions for possible error.

2 - Keep quiet to avoid sounding foolish.

3 - Curse the party for pimping them.

the best they can come up with is ...

Your copy and paste skills never cease to amaze me. How many "Rep points" did you win with that over on AZBoring.com?

Now you have stooped to parroting my zingers.

Honest question ... have you ever made an original post on a forum?

How about even have an original thought?

In answer to two of your questions...I'm not sure:
"Honest question ... have you ever made an original post on a forum?
How about even have an original thought?"
What are the odds, given the past and present members of mankind, that some other sentient being could not have the same thoughts, nor written an identical brilliant short essay , such as mine?
Going even further, if you believe in string theory, parallel universes....somewhere, there is an equally concerned individual like myself, fighting the good fight, keeping the RW Huns at bay, fighting for Mom, Apple Pie and Baseball (but not them ****** Yankees)
AS for your other question....I have never read one of your "zingers"...and didn't even know you could write one

lww, I have decided that your posts lack that panache, that would really sell them here.
SO, I have decided to help you out, and reprint all 12k of your posts, adding this:
