Obama...blathering idiot

45 posts in this topic

Its not quite that simple. 5 years after Mr. Roosevelt took office, we went through the recession of 1937, and in effect things were nearly as bad as they were in 1932 when Roosevelt took office. Its true that the military buildup that started in the late 30's got us out of the depressions, but it wasn't just the US military buildup that did it. The British, the Russians, the Chinese etc... were buying american weapons. One of the reasons for lendlease was that the british had spent nearly all their gold reserves buying US military hardware. Those nations were dumping a lot of funds into the US economy.

yea, you're right, it doesn't change my point though.

hahaha. everything you put in bold is actually correct. trust me, i know what im talking about.

Unfortunately you don't. He hasn't tippled the debt in under 3 months. It would be up over 30 trillion if that was the case, it isn't. It's still in the 10 trillion mark which is what it was sitting at last year. Fact is unemployment was down last year as well, you can't blame a continuing problem that he inherited. Same with the deficit, it was at 1.3 trillion at the end of last year, it's only up to 1.5 Trillion now, An increase of 200 billion dollars. Deficit is by Fiscal year, the end of September/beginning of October was the beginning of the fiscal year. No, I'm not 16, I'm a college graduate if you want to know. Graduated with a 3.69 gpa, if you would like to know. Since all that interest you so much. Did I hurt your feelings??? That why you had to resort to names and such.

I can prove my statements, Can you?????

lol, yea it has a lot of replies in it. For the most part I just like playing devil's advocate in these kind of threads and I believe you should let the man run his term out before deciding if he was a failure or not.

ok let me clarify. When i say he's tripled the debt i dont mean that he's literally already spent that money. He's already lined out a budget that is to increase the debt by $1.7 trillion annually over the next 4 years. do the math.

i wasnt trying to throw low blow or anything at you. i genuinely curious as to how old you were due to the logic you have expressed. hahaha, ok i guess that does sound bad. my apologies.

his policies and ideals already imply that he is going to be a failure...they do not coincide with that upon which the country was founded on.

however, Obama may succeed in turning this country into a nation of socialism. that is really the only thing i can see Obama succeeding at. in the country's best interest, let's hope that doesnt happen.

Yeah, since the country was founded on a central banking system and income taxes.

Obama never said what the Change would be... just change and hope.
