    should vote Republican.
    Every recession for the last 30 years has hit with a Republican president in the White House.

    The Repubs have also shown a remarkable inability to balance a budget or produce a yearly budget surplus.
    Their credo for the last 30 years has been "deficits don't matter" and they've only recently changed their tune (AKA flip-flopped) on that within the last year.
    Their record over the past 30 years has been one of running up massive yearly budget deficits and creating an exploding National Debt.

    I myself think it's time the democrats stop the blame game, as Obama been in for a few years now, and start to nag Obama on what he is doing and going to do about the ression in America, that has infected many other country.. But then when America gets a cold, it can infect the rest of us with pneumonia. So it's time to stop the blame game and demand action from your President, because it all belongs to him right now, just as when the Republicans succeed him, they will inherit his stuff UPS and failures too.

    Obama has been in for less than two years, not a "few years." And he has seen unprecedented obstructionism from the Republicans who have engaged in more filibusters of cloture votes than the previous 8 years combined.

    Actually, Obama inherited 8 years worth of GWB's failures. America was doing relatively fine before that.

    Actually, Bill Clinton was President when the 1999 - 2000 recessions came to pass.

    The "ression"? icon_rolleyes.gif

    The blame game is vital, if one understands that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (Most commonly attributed to George Santayana)

    The politicians who screw up are always anxious that we not "play the blame game" and "move on" because voters remembering those mistakes would ruin their public careers. Americans voters already have a notoriously short memory, and with politicians and their supporters doing revisionist tricks with history, and denouncing the "blame game," it's not surprising that past blunders are repeated over and over, and their authors reelected to continue their mess-ups.

    Failure should be rewarded with a political obituary, not more political opportunity, but when we don't bother to blame the true culprits, we get the latter and not the former.

    And I trust you too will extend those comments to "meninlove" as well...
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>UUUUUUUUM !!! If you haven't noticed, there's quite a bit of difference between meninlove and "Pattison" coming back as "True blue Aussie" , T B is kinda like that desease, he attaches himself to things and subjects he shouldn't, just to stir shit. Men in Love actually have good, decent and senseable comments.

    To "loose" his job?

    Why?

    Is his job too tight?

    It´s amazing how the republicans have marketed themselves as the party of financial responsibility, and yet as a party have shown themselves again and again to be wildly reckless with money. They have great PR.

    MCH and Lostboy, I think the key to republicans success is tying their rhetoric as the party of financial responsibility with Christian Fundamentalist groups and their conservative Religious/Social agenda. Put that together with Patriotism they mix in and its a Win. The mostly uninformed and therefore ignorant populations who vote against their own interests, only see the things like anti gay issues, marriage and family, mixing religion in our government and so on, that are strong enough issues for them to ignore that every time, the republicans vote for big business, rather than for the good of the common man..

    republicans are successful because they appeal to two mythologies which are fundamental to American Society: Christianity and the American Dream.

    Their genius has been to get the different parts of their constituencies to stand firm on other people´s issues (billionaires go "pro life" to calm the CHristians and blue collar fundamentalists have been trained to vote against their own financial interest because of the mythological power of the American Dream).

    Go Republicans go!
    60 minutes with Bernanke
    Pelley: The gap between rich and poor in this country has never been greater. In fact we have the biggest income disparity gap of any industrialized country in the world. And I wonder where you think that's taking America.

    Bernanke: It's a very bad development. It's creating two societies. And it's based very much, I think, on educational differences. The unemployment rate we've been talking about. If you're a college graduate, unemployment is 5 percent. If you're a high school graduate, it's 10 percent or more. It's a very big difference. It leads to an unequal society, and a society which doesn't have the cohesion that we'd like to see."

    FALSE.
    You need to go back to school.
    There's also a thing called the internet that you can use to factcheck your posts.

    The recession you're referring to actually ran from March 2001 to Nov. 2001 - while REPUBLICAN George W. Bush was in the White House.
    THERE WAS NO 1999-2000 RECESSION.
