  1. Santelli nails it again.

    Was wondering when this would be posted, i dont understand why Romney doesnt go after Obama more aggresively on this issue.

    It's as if Obama's first term spanned a trough!
  3. Yeah well if Obama and his crew of clowns are going to only count the positive job data, and then also make up these stupid charts that show the stimulus causing an uptrend in jobs, even though the economy was already creating jobs before a single dollar went out the door, then it is fair game for Romney to demagogue the jobs numbers in exactly the same way.

    It was just Obama's 1st year that spanned the trough. The last 3 years were spent slowing growth due to stupid liberal economic policies.

    Don't forget all the jobs he saved too, you guys. Numbers can't even define it!
  6. Reminds me of "austerity" or "spending cuts" that are just reductions in the obscene and bloated "planned spending". Let's face it, we are completely immersed in Orwellian double talk. It's so pervasive that we can hardly remember a time when it wasn't this way...

    Yep, sad but true.
  8. Starting as of 2014 the stimulus actually starts costing jobs, so we have 2 more years to create a booming economy, that is so big it will dig us out of our deficit problem.

    People who argue against austerity would have to be brain dead to think we are better off today as a result of the Stimulus than if we had taken the road of austerirty right off the bat, and cleaned the system out.

    We might be a 1% higher in unemployment today, but we would have gotten rid of the cancer, which is STILL going to have to be eliminated in 2014.

    Basically as a result of the stimulus we kicked the can down the road 4 years but now we have a permanent boat anchor weighing us down year after year, and we havent solved the problem.
  9. Agreed, but politicians will always opt for the "delayed payment plan". What we've done is essentially add trillions to our teaser rate credit card which will be paid (by not just all of us), but future generations as well.

    Meanwhile, we have first rate dipshits like Ricter running around arguing that we should just run up untold more trillions (that will eventually fail as well), to buy a few more months of fantasyland. (In all fairness, Ricter can't even tie his shoes without a diagram from Paul Krugman).

    "You know Mr President, it's never good when your opponent has produced more sons than you have jobs."
