If history repeats itself, then who's to say we're not headed for another depression? I'm not saying we are. But blind optimisim doesn't always fix everything.

in this economic climate. the market is based lmost exclusively on consumer/investor sentiment. we think, therefore we are


so yes in this case "blind optimism" is exactly what the economy needs.

to all the economic idiots and drama queens who just need something to bitch about

we are not in a recession or depression. we are in a " oh my god my two hummer payments and my 250k house really arent sustainable on my 50k/yr salary" then why did the big bad bank approve me if i couldnt pay the money back WHAAAA!

its called a market correction, look at it for what it is and stop watching fox & cnn.

" this is wolfe blitzer and ur inthe SITUATION ROOM. this just IN!

Barry is a Jimmy Carter starter-kit. That means he doesn't even bring to the table what Carter did! The last time we bowed down to the middle east, was the Iran hostage debacle in 1979. Didn't work out too well for Jimma, now did it. He had the same approach in dealing with terrorists' that Obama has now. As a matter of fact, Jimma has praised Obama for his notion to sit down with these people and negotiate...like Jimma did with Iran in 1979. History does indeed repeat itself...

When you are ready to seriously debate whether we are in a recession or not let me know.

Let your Boy get in there and start raising taxes on everything. Heavy tax burdens surely ended The Great Depression and got this country running at full steam again!

The liberal response (FDR's New Deal) was to create massive social reforms which has bred and fostered a societal endorsement of entitlement and entitlement programs. Look at the response and the expectation of more than a healthy amount of the population for the government to solve the problem, instead of being prepared or at least in a mode of riding out the storm.

War spending baby! That's what saved our ass. We should just plan on eliminating the rest of the Middle East and ramp up spending by 500%, cut taxes and promote small business growth.

Hold on now... FDR's New Deal did have some good programs in it. They're just not needed anymore. Different times call for different measures, not returning to old ones.

Some of the public works programs were fine, but are outdated, and the point remains, it was the initial handout that has created the expectation of more handouts.

I agree. This war has helped our economy boom! And we haven't spent a dime, because the oil has paid for the war. Just like they said. Mission accomplished!

I wouldn't say boom, but more like sustained in a tough economic time.

And the oil should be paying for it. If it wasn't initially about oil, make it.

I can always find a reason to blow shit up, but why blow it up? There has to be a better, more exciting way to do it. But alas, we may never know if all the peaceniks get their say.

Until we can find a way to zap an entire region/country in to another dimension, blowing shit up IS the most exciting way to handle it.

You're a moron. You've blindly followed George W. and now you're doomed to spend your days justifying your HORRIBLE choice. I realize it's much more appealing to you, to just start bashing Obama. But own up to the fact that you helped bring us to the brink of recession, and stop trying to make excuses, justifying, apologizing for, and ignoring your presidential choice's HUGE failures. Playing down the terrible economy doesn't mean it's not as bad as we think.

Go cry for what you've done.

Have you driven this country? I've been all over this country in the past 5 years. My best guess is that road money is going to other programs. They are patching old roads instead of fixing them correctly.

I agree that toll roads are horseshit.
