    There aren’t enough credible examples out there for anyone to say yes to this. with new taxes coming, even more companies are going overseas. Let’s hold o to his own words and make him a one term president.

    You’re going to deserve the financial hell that is coming.

    As opposed to the one that Bush started?
    And that the Republicans in Congress have blocked any attempt to recover from?

    Sure, we need FEWER banking regulations. It was the REGULATIONS that caused the Big Banks to lose Trillions, not their risky, unregulated Credit Default Swaps.

    And how much better off will you be with Vouchercare, rapists suing for custody, a nationally enforced policy of anti-gayness and richer billionaires?

    To repeat what I said yesterday, of course things are better now than they were four years ago. Is everyone too doped up to remember what happened in 2008? Here’s the top news story of 2008, according to the webite of Radio Free Europe (

    1. Global Financial Crisis

    It’s being called the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. And like the Great Depression, the 2008 version began in the United States, but soon spread around the world.

    Beginning with the subprime mortgage crisis of September, the situation soon escalated with the bankruptcy of the large investment bank Lehman Brothers. More banks failed. World stock markets plunged. Panic selling ensued. Companies collapsed or laid off workers — more than 500,000 jobs were lost in the United States in November alone.

    The former chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, put the unfolding drama into perspective in September when he called it a “once-in-a-century type of financial crisis.”

    Iceland’s banking system collapsed in October, forcing it to ask for help from the International Monetary Fund. Other countries, such as Hungary, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Pakistan, also sought assistance from the IMF.

    Leaders from 20 of the world’s rich and developing economies met in Washington in mid-November to discuss a unified response. Calls were made for a dramatic overhaul of the world’s financial architecture.

    There are now fears for the collapse of the U.S. auto industry, one of the backbones of American industry.

    The Fed’s key interest rate stands practically at zero, effectively eliminating it as a tool of monetary policy.

    In the United States alone, it’s estimated that the government’s bailout effort has cost $8.5 trillion…and counting, as President Obama plans to enact his own rescue plan once he takes office on January 20.

    Better than 2008Mitt Romney has been asking the question: Are you better off now than you were four years ago? Collectively as a nation, I say yes, and here’s why:• Four years ago, we were losing 700,000 to 800,000 jobs a month. Now, there have been 4 million private sector jobs added, and, at present, there have been 29 consecutive months of job creation.• Four years ago, the stock market had reached a low of 6,500. Today, the market is back up to 13,000. How does your 401(k) look now as compared to then?• Four years ago, GM and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy. Now GM and Chrysler are thriving and increasing their workforce.I understand that things are not perfect, but it takes time to dig out of a hole as large as the one we were in four years ago.Back to failed policies?A vote for Mitt Romney will return our country to the failed economic policies of George W. Bush. Moreover, why should we vote for a presidential candidate who has made a pledge to Grover Norquist not to raise taxes if elected? I thought our president makes a pledge to protect, uphold and defend our Constitution instead of making a pledge to a wealthy lobbyist

    if you are part of the 1% you won’t care, living in gated communities on the backs of the rest of the nation, but don’t mention that to the Republican voters… they are too blind to see or too dumb to understand!

    Excellent point DrCanuck; shrubster and cheney took a whole bunch of chapters from the chief paranoiac ronnie raygun’s book, not just a page. Fear, fear and the need for more and more military spending when there really was no threat, real or imagined. But most imagined. Uncle ronnie raygun was closed off to reality and facts. He really started the ball rolling. Clinton changed its direction and helped America. shrubster and cheney really pushed back the wrong direction. We, the US and the World do not need the selfishness of the right-wing and destruction wrought by the tea party nuttery.

    What we don’t know about yet are any of the secret wars shrubster and cheney had going. It took time for the ronnie raygun secret wars to come out into the light of day.

    YES! I am better off than when Obama took office. But; I’m worse off than when BUSH took office in 2000.
    And ya’ll please check some facts; Bush doubled the national debt before Obama took office, and when Obama took office the US was losing 100’s of 1000’s of jobs per month, we’ve been gaining jobs for at least hte last 2 years.
    And the financial’s meltdown occured while Bush was in office.

    I have all the examples I need to say yes to this. I’m much better off than I was 4 years ago.

    You mean when we were losing 750,000 jobs a month and heading towards a financial cliff. You bet I am!
