With trends, we were passed that 2 years ago. Obama is on clean up duty with the worst to come and rednecks all over the country will blame him.
poor guy. I'd not want his job.
Now W's job... that was the gig.
Damn dude, you are getting beat the fuck up by the resident DFWStang know-it-alls. I have a question for you GW nuthuggers....if he was such a great fuckin president then 1. Why was his approval rating so low and 2. Why did over half the world hate is guts?
Plus, how does one become a "liberal socialist" with the above comment Moddin made? Most people on here could not tell you what a liberal socialist is w/o referring to Wikipedia but it sounds good because they heard someone else say it. Obama IS on clean up duty no matter what anyone says. It is a fact AND unlike Bubba Bush he actually addresses the problems that alot of Americans are facing right now. America voted in November and you Republicans lost. Get over it already...really. Apparently more of the country disagrees with you than the opposite.
"Why don't you look into what real hardships are. Just because you can't afford to fix the car you wrecked and get it's paint job done, or get starbucks, doesn't mean we're in a depression. This is shit compared to what a depression is, a mere inconvenience."
Dude where do you get your information at? A depression is defined as a 10% or more total drop in GDP. I am not saying we are in a depression, but many many economists who are much smarter at this shit than you or I are saying that we are not far from that reality. There are towns setting up food banks that never existed before because people who have lost their jobs can no longer afford to buy food for their families. Walk into one of those lines and try to tell them about "real hardships" and that this is a "mere inconvenience". Do you think that someone asking for a hand-out gives a fuck whether we call it a depression or a recession? Probably not. We are not feeling this much in North Texas so why try to talk like you know the experiences of people going through this shit. I doubt that Congress is politicking over an $800 billion proposal so that people can get paint jobs and coffee.
"I rather be a redneck who knows who is to blame than a liberal with my head in the sand."
The guy has been president for 3 weeks and you and others like you are already set to play the blame game. Maybe your mentality is the problem. Instead of trying to figure out the problem and work towards the goal of fixing it, you are ready to place blame for things that have not even happened yet.
I don't personally think Bush is at fault for the current problems. These problems were set in motion decades ago, so who is to blame? You people on here amaze me with your short sidedness and know-it-all mentality. Is there anyone on here who has ran/or held a public office? Probably not. But there are plenty who want to armchair quarterback what is inarguably one of the toughest jobs in the world.
I have now effectively offended 7/8 of the people on here so I am done. And before I get the obligatory "You liberal socialist Obama pussy...etc etc etc"...I did not vote for the guy. I voted for the old white dude..but Obama is what we got so for the sake of everyone...you bajillionaires on here included...let's hope he does makes positive changes and sets things in the right direction.
