This is kind of besides the point. Voter attitudes favor the incumbent for all the good times, even if you think the current turn around is due to spending like crazy and not a reflection of "real" economic growth. But really keynesian spending is kind of the norm to pull out of recessions.

We could argue all day - our views are clearly very different. Arguing is kind of moot anyways - the American people will speak again in 2012 like they did in 2010.
I mean, remove yourself for a second and put it in context with other opposition party take overs. I'll absolutely concede it is an important event, but it's kind of a blip.

I like arguing. Probably why I'm in law school (or is it lawl school?).

Ask them how the Great Depression was dealt with.

Ask how the other developed nations approached a Recession caused by lack of oversight by Bush.

Most have no clue but parrot a Beck or Bachman.

You're absolutely right. Bush failed to oversee the Democrats in congress who controlled the purse. Gosh darn it, can't let those Dem's off the leash with money...

He has a veto. Passing the emergency spending was bipartisan.
