Actually, they both did. Bush/Paulson presided over round I, Obama/Geithner over round II, in addition to even larger bailouts delivered by the Federal Reserve throughout that whole period.


But we digress...


The duck. Look at it. You have to really open your eyes to see it in all its duckiness.

President Obama is a socialist just like Richard Nixon was a socialist and Gerlad Ford was a socialist and ronald Reagan was a socialist.  It seems the good folks on the right have no idea what socialism is. 


As far as I can tell the slogan "Forward" must have been "stolen" from the Jewish Daily Forward (now a weekly magazine) because both teh campaign and the magazine use the same word. Smile  Would the OP prefer we go backwards to the ruinous economic and social policies of "W"? or perhaps he prefers those of Harding, Coolidge and Hoover? no? maybe he liked the Panic of 1873 and the long depression brought to us by U.S. Grant and Co?

The spending is going to create the chaos.  "Progress" (socialist measures) is how it is coming about.  And he's telling td.  He told us during the campaign.

While things are not great they are far better than they were when we got to finally say goodbye George W and his anti-growth, full unemployment, steal from the poor and give to the rich policies. We have had slow but steady job growth, low inflation, and for you 1%ers excellent stock market returns. Just off the top of my head lets see bank failures are down, the TARP money has been repaid, GM and Chrysler are in the black and we are even making money with our investment in GM, US exports are up, US manufacturing is up, hard to complain about that, so lets just call success failure in the usual Republican doublespeak

I, and likely a large majority of Americans would trade today for where we were 3.5 years ago.

Then you are a person who prefers war, debt and economic hard times. There is no accounting for taste.

And here I thought the thread was about Obama's secret, overnight trip to Afghanistan on the anniversary of America's execution of Osama bin Laden!


Oh well.....there's another thread available to discuss that


Back to the topic....

It's not a "large" or a "majority" who would prefer to go back 3.5 years ago, those who were losing their livelihood at more than a million per month back then certainly wouldn't. 


I think the "large majority of Americans", excluding the 1%, would trade today for where we were before Bush2 took office.   Economy good/no endless war
