Obama inherited an entirely trashed economy, I think he was very cautious not to do anything that would make it worse

Gotta put yourself in that time

It's easy to say now that the economy is up and running again "Why did we not get single payer" for instance but Obama's administration was not going to raise taxes during a recession

That's my freedom of choice. I'm not trying to take it away from anyone else.

And yes, calling a grown man a child as a way to try and bolster your argument is being a dickweed. Your lame ass retort trying to defend it is also a bit dickweedish.

I gotta go check Websters.....

The only difference with Trump is that he speaks at a 3rd grade level the **** slinging is historically how our politics have always been

I'm just saying the beater starts up when you turn the key

The mechanics still don't get to drive it either

Before the crash my home peaked at about $500K. At the worst point of the crash it got down to about $280K. As of right this very second it's at $433K.

About the same story for my 401K.

Both major signposts of how good or bad the economy is.

Obama passes a stimulus package in 09 that's double the size and that finally starts to clot the bleeding
We are talking about different things here. The stimulus package (ARRA) you are talking about for '09 was in the works prior to Obama's ascension, though a lot of cooperation with holdovers from the Bush admins. was involved since the writing of it was finished after the transition period. It didn't come out of a vacuum. It wasn't a popular move when Bush was on his way out and it wasn't popular when Obama stepped up either, but it was a decent attempt to "stem the bleeding" that built on what Bush (as you pointed out) had attempted to address. For all intents and purposes though, it was the result of some degree of bi-partisanship.

FTFY

Maybe you shouldn't be on a discussion board if you don't want to have discussions.

I didn't know I was defending him calling you a child when I was criticizing you for calling someone a duckweed. Thanks for filling me in on that though!

Calling me a dickweed sure is dickweedish, Chula.

Person A submits a point.
Person B submits a counterpoint.
Person A doesn't buy it and states so.

If this is what you call a fight then you've obviously never been punched in the face a few times.

(and if that's the case, I think it would do you some good)
