Please explain to rational human beings how Obama has made the economy worse.

Malaise, drop a set of balls, register and ask the question here. You coward! Knowing that we'd be banned from DU the SECOND we expressed a thought against Maobama, let alone the truth...Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

Um.. he grew the national debt at a greater rate than during Bush's 2nd term. He bailed out the banks and wall street. I realize you can argue back and forth endlessly whether or not bailouts are a good idea (this is a right/left ideology split and nobody is going to convince the other). However, his bailouts of the banks was to get them capital to increase lending. Okay. Well, the banks haven't been lending. Homes are still being foreclosed, and there has been rampant fraud and illegal accounting by the banks which has gone unpunished by Obama.
So even if you believe in bailouts in principle, the Obama's stated reasons for the bailouts haven't happened, and he hasn't done anything about the criminal activity the banks are doing with our money. So taxpayers got screwed twice. Once out of the money, and twice when the entities that got the money didn't use for the intended purpose (in fact, they are using our money to screw us). But this is the reason conservatives don't like big government.
What really boggles my mind is how the party of OWS can also be the party that bailed out wall street with taxpayer money. The only possible solution to resolve this logical conflict is if Democrats and Taxpayers were disjoint sets. Oh, wait.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

04-17-2012, 12:03 AMIf America's economy were a minority, Barack Obama would be guilty of a hate crime for the things he's done to it. If the economy were a kidnap victim, Barack Obama would be telling it to "put the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again." If this were the movie Saw, Obama would have the economy chained to a radiator and he’d demand that it cut off its own foot to escape. Had Obama literally done nothing except watch Gilligan's Island reruns since he was elected, not only would the economy be in considerably better shape today, but he could learn a lot of tips from the Skipper on how to properly handle Joe Biden.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

Hey, DUmmies, if you're looking for a real political landmark of the economy going over the cliff, start with the Dems getting solid control of Congress, and then San Fran Nan refusing to even vote a budget, which took business tax planning into a purgatory where it still resides thank to Dingy Harry stopping anything the now-Republican House passes.
