Recessions and Jobs  

Trump says it's good for the nation when Democrats are in the WH.

Nixon and Ford had two recessions; the second one lasting 16 months; Carter's, at 6 month's, was the shortest recession since we started keeping records on such things. Then there was Reagan's recession, which matches Nixon and Ford's long one at 16 months;  Daddy Bush's was an 8 month recession. And Clinton's lasted ..... oh wait... there was no Clinton recession.

Then Dubya came in and he gave us not one, BUT TWO, recessions; together totaling 24 months, and the last one being dubbed "The Great Recession." -

Of the ten recessions this nation has suffered since Ike was in office, NINE of them began under GOP presidents.

The ONE that happened on a Democrat's watch was the shortest since economists started keeping records on such things. 

Coincidence?   I don't think so.

Hillary Did What?  

256 PM: Christians [Quote] -- 9:30pm -- Tue, Mar 10, 15 pst
Hillary is pretty much a hawk - witness her leading role in the military intervention in Libya in 2011, and her support for the Iraq War in 2002.

Now for the truth.

Senator Clinton speaks out AGAINST invading Iraq.

"So Mr. President, for all its appeal, a unilateral attack, while it cannot be ruled out, on the present facts is not a good option." - Floor Speech of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on S.J. Res. 45, A Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq - As Delivered

Dosset, So next time you try to excuse Hillary's poor judgement in war making while you eviscerate the GOP for their poor judgement, get the facts straight. Hillary stood at the front of the line yelling 'attack' just as loudly as the others.

Smear Debunked  

We TOLD you guys the minute we saw the NYTIMES report that the story was ''fishy.''

Within minutes other reporters were looking at the Times smear and finding a HUGE problem.

Why did the Times refer to the regulations they hint Clinton violated as ''new'' and not by something more specific like, ''regulations implemented on [thus and such specific date]?''

Reporters recognized the ploy for what it is --- the Times withheld the date of the implementation of the regs for a reason.

Turns out -- the reason the Times didn't tell you about the date is that the regs didn't become effective until AFTER Clinton left the State Dept.

The Times' hit piece smelled fishy right away; was dying before the late edition hit the all-night news stands; and certainly smelled to high heaven and was certifiably dead before the morning edition hit the door steps, streets, and news stands - one of the quickest debunkings of a rightwinger smear in modern history.

"New" regulations?  

Did you see this from the Daily Beast regarding the faux scandal the NYTIMES tried to drum up on Sec. Clinton?

''But let’s hold on a second. A close reading of the Times piece reveals one potential big hole in the case . . . You have to know how to read these things, and if you do know how to read them, there’s a big question here .....''

The article says that there were “new” regulations that Clinton was supposed to abide by.''

''New''? Hmmmmm.......... How new? For some reason the NYTIMES LEFT OUT that part.

Why? You ask?

Because they were SO fucking new, they didn't take effect until OVER A YEAR after she'd left govt service.

''You start out in 1954 by saying, 'nigger, nigger, nigger.' By 1968 you can't say 'nigger.' . . . that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, state's rights, and all that stuff... all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is blacks get hurt worse than whites.'' -- Lee Atwater, on Nixon's ''Southern Strategy.''


"Oh, yes, this is a wonderful govment, wonderful. Why, looky here. There was a . . .  nigger there . . .  a mulatter, most as white as a white man. He had the whitest shirt on you ever see, too, and the shiniest hat; and there ain't a man in that town that's got as fine clothes as what he had  .  .  . They said he was a p'fessor in a college, and could talk all kinds of languages, and knowed everything. And that ain't the wust. They said he could VOTE when he was at home. Well, that let me out. Thinks I, what is the country a-coming to? It was 'lection day, and I was just about to go and vote myself if I warn't too drunk to get there; but when they told me there was a State in this country where they'd let that nigger vote, I drawed out.

JV? No, He Didn't Say ISIS Is Like the JV  

Q: You know where this is going, though. Even in the period that you’ve been on vacation in the last couple of weeks, in Iraq, in Syria, of course, in Africa, al-Qaeda is resurgent.

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, but, David, I think the analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

Q: But that JV team jus[t] took over Fallujah.

THE PRESIDENT: I understand. But when you say took over Fallujah –

Q: And I don’t know for how long.

THE PRESIDENT: But let’s just keep in mind, Fallujah is a profoundly conservative Sunni city in a country that, independent of anything we do, is deeply divided along sectarian lines. And how we think about terrorism has to be defined and specific enough that it doesn’t lead us to think that any horrible actions that take place around the world that are motivated in part by an extremist Islamic ideology is a direct threat to us or something that we have to wade into.

It's hard to believe anyone could be as ignorant as you are. 50 straight months of private sector job growth, gas prices down, medical inflation at lowest rate in 50 yrs, record Wall St profits, unemployment below 6%, bin Laden dead, lowest growth in govt spending since Eisenhower, deficit cut in half - clearly it's time to go back to doing everything Bush did?

The last year of Bush's presidency concluded with a TOTAL collapse of US economy, every bank insolvent, every major US auto maker bankrupt, AIG and most insurances companies bankrupt, the entire US financial system in complete cardiac arrest, two MAJOR wars, NEITHER OF WHICH HAD YET BEEN PAID FOR, and all this amidst first hand accounts of pallets full of US Currency being dropped from planes and stolen by Iraqis while they looted the museums and WHILE DOUBLING THE NATIONAL DEBT, NOT to BAIL OUT and revitalize a nation on life support over the obstruction of the most dim witted GOP in the history of the country BUT to give bigger tax refunds to multimillionaires who were not job creators and instead rat holed the money in the Bahamas.

Miltary Decimated?  

4896 PM: Kaslin [Quote] -- 7:20am -- Wed, Feb 25, 15 pst
The military has been reduced by 10%? Not quite. Now for the truth.

Kaslin claims that the military has been cut by 10% under Obama. She's lying, of course. Spending is UP. From Time magazine:

"Pentagon spending since 2001 vastly exceeds that of any decade since 1950, and it is notable that the wars of the 1950s and 1960s (Korea and Vietnam) involved far larger deployments of troops and equipment than the wars since 2001.

— Second, the $612 billion President Obama is seeking for 2014 is a major increase above the average yearly amount ($354 billion) spent during the Cold War (1948-1991). The 2014 level is a $258 billion, or 72% — increase."

Double Down Back Lash  

"In a related study, Northwestern University researcher Monica Prasad and her colleagues found similar behavior among partisan Republican voters in Illinois and North Carolina. Presented with evidence suggesting that there was no link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 attacks, these voters tended to counterargue and to double-down on their beliefs, rather than change their minds or admit error."

That  is --- when they realized they had embraced a lie, rather than admit it and accept the truth, they DOUBLE-DOWN on the lie.

Researchers identified three obvious lies about Bush's war in Iraq and presented them to their subjects. As we might expect, the Fox viewers were more likely to believe the lies
"Sure enough, Fox viewers led the way in embracing these false assertions, with 80 percent of them believing at least one of the three. Seventy-one percent of CBS viewers also held one of these three false beliefs. For consumers of NPR and PBS, only 23 percent believed one or more of these pro-war myths. Notably, Republicans and supporters of George W. Bush had a much higher level of belief in these falsehoods. So what caused these misperceptions to exist? Republican ideological allegiance likely led to an initial belief in these misrepresentations, but then Fox watching bolstered these views. "  
From "How the Iraq War Launched the Modern Era of Political BS" by Chris Moonie in Mother Jones Magazine;

"Fox viewers led the way in embracing these false assertions, with 80 percent of them believing at least one of the three. For consumers of both NPR and PBS, in contrast, only 23 percent believed one or more of these pro-war myths."

The last year of Bush's presidency concluded with a TOTAL collapse of US economy, every bank insolvent, every major US auto maker bankrupt, AIG and most insurances companies bankrupt, the entire US financial system in complete cardiac arrest, two MAJOR wars, NEITHER OF WHICH HAD YET BEEN PAID FOR, and all this amidst first hand accounts of pallets full of US Currency being dropped from planes and stolen by Iraqis while they looted the museums and WHILE DOUBLING THE NATIONAL DEBT, NOT to BAIL OUT and revitalize a nation on life support over the obstruction of the most dim witted GOP in the history of the country BUT to give bigger tax refunds to multimillionaires who were not job creators and instead rat holed the money in the Bahamas.

TODAY the banks are making loans, home values and portfolio investment values WHICH HAD BEEN CUT IN HALF have had MOST of their value RESTORED.

The economy that was SHRINKING AT A RATE OF 5.5% A YEAR IS NOW GROWING at 4%.

THE DOW has gone from 7,949 when Bush left office to over 16,000+ HAVING MORE THAN DOUBLED.

THE DEFICIT IS LESS THAN HALF of what it was when Bush left office, despite Republican policies that encourage sending jobs offshore, unemployment is down, the wars are getting paid for and UNLIKE THE GOP, this administration is not homophobic, chauvinistic, racist, AND reminiscent of robber barons, Jim Crow and John Wayne.

Whatever Obama's shortcomings, I hope this little reminder helped my right wing friends keep reality in perspective.

50 straight months of private sector job growth, gas prices down, medical inflation at lowest rate in 50 yrs, record Wall St profits, unemployment below 6%, bin Laden dead, lowest growth in govt spending since Eisenhower, deficit cut in half - What is left to hate Obama for unless you just hate black folks?
