    This cartoon contains a serious error. ’Cuz, you know, nothing bad ever happened to the economy until inauguration day 2009.

    For them. . . .the thrill is gone. We’re left to clean up the mess from them puking over the side of the car.

    Between Ms. Pelosi’s and Mr. Reid’s hubris in 2009 and 2010, and Mr. McConnall and Mr. Boehnor’s recalcitrance from 2009 to the present, and the general circus of self-serving that is the house and senate, it’s amazing the car even stayed on the tracks at all. Mr. Obama’s inability to motivate legislators or the electorate has only made this ‘ride’ slower and the number of people able to get on the slow train to mediocrity has been unacceptably low.
    Had our uncivil, disrespectful, and cannibalistic legislature worked to find compromise instead of trying to make the “other party” look bad for the next election, the head of the IMF said the USA and world economy would have grown by at least 4% more than it has.
    And the job creators are saving their money to invest in the Superpacs that will create jobs for politicians friendly to the issues of that superpac, not to mention judges in those states where the people sitting on the bench are elected.
    It is not right and we should work together in good faith to find people who can work to find long term solutions for our nation, our neighbors, and ourselves.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “@braindead08

    Actually, things really started to drop shortly after president Obama was elected. Knowing that he was going to be president was enough to cause the bottom to start to drop out of the economy"

    wow. talk about revisionist history! the credit market seized up, the housing market blew up and job loss exceeded 700,000 per month long before Obama was elected, or even the candidate.

    but we all know that in your world, bush was the greatest military commander since alexander the great, eh?

    Slow and steady wins the race, but it doesn’t pad the pockets.

    The economy started to falter back when GWB was being inaugurated.

    @Respectful Troll

    Our economy isn’t nearly as well off as depicted here. Most of those affected aren’t even counted in official numbers.

    Its not dropping like it did in 2008.
    Look at the cartoon if you need a visual.
    I’m not exactly endorsing Obama but we aren’t loseing 700,000 jobs a month now as a result of Republican policies since Reagan.
