    Why did the economy expand under Bush the Lesser? Deficit spending. Taxes were cut, two wars were begun with no – that means ABSOLUTELY no – provision made to cover said deficits. Righty Cheney SAID ‘deficits don’t matter’ and proceeded accordingly. The debt based economy expanded until… well, Bush the Lesser gifted us with the deepest and most dangerous recession since the Great Depression. Hello?

    How’s about a little accuracy from the so-often-wrong right side of out National Peanut Gallery?? Going forward might actually be POSSIBLE then.

    If the Republicans really cared about deficit spending, they wouldn’t have had to raise the debt ceiling 6 times during the Bush Administration.

    Remind me again which Presidential candidate wanted to make the defense budget at least 4% of the GDP (would’ve added up to 2.3 TRILLION dollars over eight years)?
    .
    All against debt and spending… unless we can use the money to blow up more brown people who were stupid enough to live on top of oil.

    Speaking of the Good Old Days: tonight, PBS, Dick Cavett interviews Watergate co-conspirators, lackeys, and felons.

    Happy 40th anniversary of the resignation of Richard Milhous Nixon.

    Really; I never thought I’d see a President worse than Carter. We’re gonna need another Reagan after this. Hopefully, we’ll get one.

    .
    What Dennis pointed out is the Workforce Participation Rate stats from the dept of labor which reflect a STEADY DECLINE of people working since Obama took office. Those number (like I mentioned before) are from the Dept of Labor, not from “FAUX NEWS SQUAK!!!”. So I’m not really sure what “accuracy” your referring to and of course the number of people dependent on govt handouts has dramatically increased under Obama.

    Perhaps by “accuracy” you mean “koolaid infused adoration”.

    Medicare only took a couple of years to get right, Medicare D took 6 months if I remember correctly.
