    Yes, Bush did do it with negligence in fiscal regulation, which dominoed Europe’s collapse after the sub-prime implosion.
    Bush further did it by leaving a trillion dollar deficit, mainly caused by a war on two fronts, one of which was a non-agressor.
    The smart money is going to stay in Asia for quite a while until the world can trust the USA with its investments

    If we can start pumping oil and natural gas I disagree. We spend more on oil to the middle east then we do on defense.

    Plus as some who has been to the middle east I know we can pump and move all that oil cleaner.

    - 27 straight months of economic growth – + 4 million jobs created – Unemployment down to 8.2%
    Looks like a wrong analogy was used in this toon.

    And your guy has made the whole problem a lot worse. Weak, weak argument, convenient for ignoring reality…

    Bad numbers. Go back and re read. Not even a good attempt at fudging them.

    “Government can NOT create jobs” is the Republican mantra. Well, except that Obama, by himself, with the opposition of all Republican members of the Congress IS SUPPOSED TO CREATE ALL JOBS! Where HAS the “private sector” job growth been hanging out as jobs went overseas, or disappeared? Oh, right, cashing in on the tax breaks from Reaganomics and “W”!

    That pole is the filibuster rule in the senate that’s kept us from climbing out of this mess, used by the Reeps to stop Obama at any cost. Has there ever been a more disloyal party in American history? at least give his ideas a chance to work. After all he WAS elected by the people.

    Henry, you are aware that the GOP did everything in their power to rnsure the economy would stall — do nothing Congress. At least 50% the republicans fault.

    Let’s look at the direction of the numbers, not a total or average from the beggining of his destruction. Also, let’s add those who have had to leave the unemployment sector because their benefits ran out or decided it was easier to get assistance instead of looking for work. You Libs don’t want to look at the current situation. Which is why this comic strip is so spot on.

    No, that would be the Democrats. The Republicans want the Government to let them make their personal choices not be Government led.

    As far as a plan I agree that neither side is coming up with the perfect bill.

    Economic depression cannot be cured by legislative action or executive pronouncement. Economic wounds must be healed by the action of the cells of the economic body – the producers and consumers themselves.
    Herbert Hoover

    The more Gov. gets involved the more difficult it is for this healing to take place. This process is true for all issues, the more we rely on others to solve the trials of this world the results will be minimal. Obama has failed because he believes Gov. is the solution, it is not. The perfect plan is to let the people have the freedom to organically create a solution that truly fits whatever the problem is we face.
