Case-in-point: Two UCLA professors, both libs, do research on the Great Depression, trying to prove the fact that FDR and his Keynesian polices allievated the Depression faster than the Republicans could have done using common sense economics, as was done in the 20's (ushering in the Roaring 20's). What happened? The proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that FDR and his Keynesian policies made the Depression WORSE for Americans and made it drag on for YEARS longer than it needed to.
So today, we find ourselves in a Depression. A Depression caused by Nutsy Baloney, Dingy Reid, and Barack Hussein Obama MMM! MMM! MMM!
Case-in-point: Here are three points to remember. One, the Congress was taken over by Nutsy Baloney and the Democrats in January 2007. Congress holds the purse strings and spends the money. Two, the Senate was taken over by Dingy Reid in January 2007 and the Senate does spending as well. Three, King Putz took over in January 2009 and had a BULLET PROOF MAJORITY in BOTH HOUSES! To be more clear, the Democrats OWNED THE GOVERNMENT and went on a spending spree to the tune of 14 TRILLION dollars. But let us look at the results of Democrat tampering with the economy and the results of King Putz's incessant blathering about businesses, etc.
The First Quarter growth was 0.4%, DOWNGRADED from the previously reported (in other words, Obama and the Regime LIED TO US AGAIN!) 1.9% and the Second Quarter is a measly 1.3%. The link below at Trading Economics allows you to check the GDP rate when the Democrats took over and it is horrendous.
In 2007, the growth was low. (Dems own Congress/Senate)
In 2008, the growth was trending down. (Dems own Congress/Senate)
In 2009, three out of four quarters were in the NEGATIVE! (Dems own all three houses)
in 2010, the growth was again, low. (GOP takes Congress in Nov)
In 2011, we are seeing some pathetic number, 1.3%? 0.4%?
Not to mention that unemployment has been RAMPANT the entire time this buffoon and his minions have been running the goverment. Please, ONE LIB, try to defend your messiah on this, PLEASE! Unemployment under Obama is UP 25% and still growing. Inflation, UP! Food costs, UP! Gas costs, UP! TAXES GOING UP!
America, this is what happens when you put idiotic Dummycrats in charge, who are nothing but ideologues who are slaves to a failed economic system (Keynesian) and a failed ideological system (Liberalism), that has failed everywhere it has been tried. Everywhere.
Consider the headlines on Drudge:
1. GDP AT 1.3
2. Gold soars, Dow plunges
3. DOLLAR TANKS
4. Consumer confidence at 2-year low
5. Q1 CRASHED TO JUST 0.4%!
6. 4.9% unemployment in Mexico vs. 9.4% in US
7. Black Middle Class Eroding As Unemployment Rate Soars...
But at least ONE glimmer of sunshine is peeking through the black clouds of the regime.
Obama falls to NEW LOW in approval rating... 40%.
See you at 30% soon numbnuts.
