I thought you loved Obama's brand of stupidonomics?

I thought you were convinced the democrooks would deliver the lower class from bondage and not into bondage?

You supported the very programs, policies, and people that created what you now denounce.

Please explain?

You were denouncing the results of Obama/democrook policy ... now you are slavishly defending it ... and you wonder why you are seen as a practitioner of doublethink?

Funny how the right doesn't mind that kind of redistribution of wealth, huh?

So where are all the jobs as a result of huge corporate profits?

If this isn't proof that corporate profitability does not create jobs, I don't know what is, yet when we want to do away with corporate tax breaks and subsidies, the Repiglicans deceitfully start yapping about "Job Killing Policies"

What a crock!

Now wait a second ... haven't you been pimping the idea that Obama policy created more jobs than Bush?

Now you are denying it&gt;

And you wonder why people think you are a practitioner of doublethink?

Why was it OK for you to say But Bush for 8 years but tire of hearing But Obama after only 2? Nothing worse than seeing a schmuck post over than find out the schmuck is a lowly hypocrite.
