President Obama's plan

>> Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Newt Gingrich who was forced from the house in disgrace 10 years ago was hoping to rally support for a potential Presidential run in 2012, said in a speech Monday to 2000 Republican loyalists "President Obama's plan to fix the economy through stimulus spending and government intervention to boost companies like General Motors has "already failed." Sorry Newt, but the only thing Obama has failed at doing so far is rallying support from Republicans for his attempts to save this economy from going into a depression. I say, You can't fix an economy in 6 months that took 8 years for the Bush administration to destroy. Newt also said "Bureaucrats managing companies does not work, politicians dominating the economy does not work" Who the hell made Newt Gingrinch an expert on what works to help the economy? Newt also said "I am not a citizen of this world" making an attempt to show he disagrees with Obama's statement " I am a citizen of this world". Who the f*** cares Newt Gingrinch? Most of us wish you were not a citizen of this United States as well because you are fighting against helping the United States improve this economy. Newt Gingrich if you're hoping to be elected President in 2012, you have already failed, just as you have failed to help the United States fix our economy. Same goes to Palin. Obama will fix this economy and will go on to be President until 2016.

It kills me that President Obama has not even been in office for 6 months and some of the Republicans refuse to give him time to turn things around. As much as some of them like to sarcastically refer to him as The Messiah and The Anointed One, it's as if they really believe he should have powers to magically fix the economy.

As for those wishing that Obama fails and/or are calling for a boycott of GM, I will never understand that kind of thinking.

Bush gets the credit for destroying the economy but he did no such thing. He was a failure at just about everything, but managed to keep a decent economy through most of his presidency.

Look at the recession Clinton left Bush, did Clinton destroy his economy too?

We usually have a recession every 7 or so years, regardless of who is President.

Stunatra, Where were you the last 12 years? Clinton left office with a budget surplus and an economy that was in great shape. The economy started eroding immediately after 911. The Bush administration failed to do anything to stop it, in fact they accelerated the downfall by loosening the restrictions on creditors to make loans, which caused to many bad loans in the mortgage market.

Well said! Bob.

Oh and by the way, Stunatra is probably speaking English in reverse.
A simpler name for it? Ignoramus.

let's hope he does,then unfortunaly the republicans will take over and undo every thing again.just as they did in the 50's.They wanted to reverse what president Roosevelt did during the depression.

Newt is so antiquated that he has no relevance, other than the fact that the Right has nothing else to serve. Obama has been in office a little over five months. The debt our country has incurred was on Bush's shoulders. What Obama has added only amounts to 3% of the total debt.

The "stimulus" spending most likely delayed recovery, not sped it up.

Michael June 11, 2009 at 4:14 PM  


Methinks Stunatra drinketh from the Kool Aid jar a bit much.

Just saying.

Bob June 11, 2009 at 4:47 PM  

Harrison, That's going to be the Republican's story once the economy has recovered. They will never admit the spending bill that the Obama administration crafted helped the economy recover, because that would mean they have to admit they were wrong, just like you are wrong.

Stunatra June 11, 2009 at 5:13 PM  

I like how you claim I'm drinking kool aid if I don't kiss your party's ass. Truth is, both parties are responsible for the mess this country is in. If that makes me an ignoramus, then fine. Just keep drinking your partisan kool aid. The politicians will love you for it.

Good day all.

Harrison June 11, 2009 at 5:34 PM  

If you are correct why do 45% (and growing) of Americans not want another "stimulus" bill if the first one did such a bang up job?

Bob June 11, 2009 at 5:58 PM  

Harrison, I don't why 45% don't want another stimulus bill, maybe they are ignorant or maybe they believe the Republican's propaganda. The first stimulus bill did work because otherwise we would be in a depression right now. Here's a question for you. Why did so many people choose to elect Bush to a second term? The answer is, because they made a big mistake.

Bob June 11, 2009 at 6:05 PM  

Sunutra, sorry for those name calling comments. But I think you are suffering from amnesia or something because your recollection of recent history is wrong and the truth is the Republicans are responsible for the mess this country is in, and the Republicans also are the only ones playing partisan politics.

Harrison June 11, 2009 at 11:00 PM  

What economic evidence do you have that the stimulus bill prevented a depression?

Bob June 11, 2009 at 11:19 PM  

Harrison, Are we in a depression now? no. Were we headed for a depression when the big banks such as AIG failed? yes of course. There's your evidence. Enough said

Harrison June 12, 2009 at 6:56 PM  

The problem with you response is you assume had no "stimulus" gone through the situation would not have been worse. That's a pretty large bet to place on an assumption.

And we weren't in a depression then, either.

Bob June 12, 2009 at 8:11 PM  

Harrison, It's also a pretty large bet to place an assumption on the economy recovering without any stimulus bill. Better to play it safe with a stimulus bill than have to spend 10 times that amount or maybe lose 10 times that amount if a depression did start.

Harrison June 13, 2009 at 3:29 PM  

That's how Obama got it passed! Fact is, most of the stimulus hasn't even been spent yet so what's not spent can't have an effect.

Bob June 13, 2009 at 5:41 PM  

You're right, that is how Obama got it passed, but you're wrong that what's not spent can't have an affect. There are millions of people who need jobs right now and the money that is left will produce some of those jobs to help some people and help rebuild our infrastructure at the same time.

Harrison June 14, 2009 at 8:37 AM  

Obama said the stimulus would create 1-2 million jobs. We have lost that many already.

Dwacon® June 23, 2009 at 3:05 PM  

I'll drink to that!

Bob June 23, 2009 at 10:36 PM  

It was projected and expected that we would continue to lose jobs even as jobs are being created, nothing can stop an avalanche once it starts.
