Of course, if O'Sama hadn't have spent all of the money in the first half of his presidency, we would have the debt problem would we. He shoulda let the banks die. But his buds needed a leg up so he gave my great grandchildren a debt that they will never pay off either. So, in my book he should be in the bottom of the bucket along with both parties.

We could argue about Obama-mama until eternity but I think we can all agree that we'd like Sarah Palin in the bucket.

Actually when Clinton handed over the presidency to Gung-Ho Bush I believe the economy was running a budget surplus....since Bushy boy had to whack Saddam & blow up the poppy growin Afghan farmers that budget surplus became a huge freakin deficit....& then u had sub-prime bla bla bla finally when the dust settles who's there holding the bucket wen its filled to the brim with s**t none other than Obama so I dont think its fair to put him in the bottom....(maybe somewhere in da middle maybe....LOL) that honor should be exclusively reserved for Jnr. He sure did make his daddy proud & screw the whole world over in the process :)

Can we just stop the US political debate right there? The debate will never end and Amy Winehouse just died! We have more pressing issues to attend to like replying to the 954th poster asking if they should apply for PR, that young man looking to score a few hot chicks and the occasional troll who can't take criticism and blows everything out of proportion!

:roll:

And read my sig: THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS.

There was a time when banks assessed risk and decided who to lend money to.

Then along came Clinton who outlawed 'red-lining', and with the Acorn Act legally obliged banks to lend to people who could not afford the repayments.

That was the origin of the sub-prime crisis.

(In something of a mirror, the EU and IMF are now forcing bankrupt states to take loans that they cannot afford to repay. Where do you see that likely to end up?)

A very valid point; regardless of what people think of Obama the fact is he inherited an economy that was already in a mess. Forgive sms like many Americans (and a good many Britons) he has a woefully short memory. Image

Sure O'sama inherited a mess. So did Bush. I suggest you put a cork innit and do some factual reading. Yes, Bush escalated the mess, nobody is denying that fact, but he didn't create the mess. And now O'sama has made damn sure that the next 6 generations will suffer for his botched attempt at straightening it out as well.

@ Plavt: Thank you its comforting to know that there is some1 who shares a similar viewpoint

I just feel that when your govt is running a massive deficit with stubbornly high un-employment of over 9% resisting tax increases on the super-rich & curtailing govt spending on social programs is not the way to kick-start your economy again.

@ sms: Thanks for factcheck it was an eye opener & nope I do not have a masters :) Am just an outsider looking on fascinated by how the world's greatest economy is being torn down by greedy, cheap & dis-tasteful partisan politics :)

Amy it is then ..... :)
