Poor Bill could do no right back in the 90's. If he bombed Al Quaida, the republicans had a problem with it. If he didn't bomb Al Quaida, the republicans had a problem with it.

It all convinced me that the actual problem was the "D" after his name. Which seems to be the same problem Obama has.

Eeek, I'm threadjacking, aren't I? Sorry, I'll stop.

Looks like you've been around Interference plenty long enough to know that was well over the line.

Also looks like this thread has veered pretty far off the topic (role of tax policy in the economic recovery plan). Let's keep any further discussion focused on that point please, otherwise there's little reason to keep this one open.

Anyway, it's in my best interest that Obama's policies succeed, however I don't see it happening.

When Reagan came to office he was handed a crap economy by Carter and he fixed it.
When Clinton came to office he listened to Republicans, co-opted with them and he fixed the economy.

GW fixed the economy when it was handed off by Clinton in not the best shape.

During the end of GWs tenure the economy faltered. Instead of discipline that is now needed and tax cuts; we've spent trillions in new promises that can not be sustained and Obama has not listened to Republicans-and because of that the stock market continues to dive.

A better anaolgy is:

In regards to the economy, we were ankle deep in sh*t when Obama won the election. With this new debt and unsustainable promises we are now in chest deep sh*t-thanks to Senator O-no.

This post makes no sense. You say that Clinton fixed the economy because of the Republicans and then handed a shaky economy off to GW that he had to fix. Either the Republicans helped Clinton or they made the economy shaky.

The dot-com bubble bursting caused a recession at the end Clinton's term -and he handed that to GW.

How does he stack up?

Rush Limbaugh is a popular radio personality.
Mr. Obama is Leader of the Free World.

(Rush is being set up as the ultimate straw man by the hard left)

Can we please refrain from calling the president a "leader"?

I think chief magistrate is fine enough.

Shit, I have a line to that in mind, but it's probably too dark a humor for here.

Oh, how awesome would that be if German politicians would take some example in that when debating over the next tax reform... wait, tax reform? Quote our Minister for Finance: "No money for tax reforms for the next ten years." And this year it looks like we go Black-Yellow (Conservatives and Free Liberals), so the next four years (at least) will be standstill again.

It's such an ironic situation. Just a few months ago almost everyone was looking at the US President in disgust from this side on the Atlantic. Now, everyone is just hoping we would get something similar.
