Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 545 -- The Obama Economy.
Stop Blaming Others, Obama, This Economy Is Now Yours-
Obama and the Democrats are still blaming Bush for everything that is wrong with the world. Unfortunately for them, Democrats controlled Congress for more than two years now, and in terms of policy decisions, the past few years now have been guided mostly by left-of-center thinking. The alleged deregulation of the Bush years was largely mythical. The Bush tax cuts were mostly a first term phenomenon. Entitlement reform was kiboshed. Instead, programs were expanded, regulations added, and taxes in other nations began to make ours look high. With so much media attention on the Democrats' primary, the national policy mood was decidedly left-wing. There was no room for conservative ideas during that period.
More than that, regardless of who was in charge of turning the boom into the bust, Obama and Pelosi are now unequivocally in charge. And they are not inspiring confidence. At all.
Just take a gander at the market since Obama won:
As 2009 opened, three weeks before Barack Obama took office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9034 on January 2, its highest level since the autumn panic. Yesterday the Dow fell another 4.24% to 6763, for an overall decline of 25% in two months and to its lowest level since 1997. The dismaying message here is that President Obama's policies have become part of the economy's problem.
Obama and the Democrats need to stop blaming others. They need to stop uttering phrases like, "we inherited such and such recession, or such and such deficit."
Even if you did inherit it, it's now yours.
As any clever trust fund kid knows, any money your rich parents spend on you now is just money that you won't inherit later on.
With that philosophy in mind, let's examine what the Democrats in Congress drained from their own inheritance in just the past year:

Uncertainty and liberal spending is not good for the economy! The so called Stimulus bill was nothing more than a Socialist engineering bill. Obama needs to resign! He is such a nerd! He is subjecting our country to a unnecessary downfall and failure. He can't even choose cabinet members who are not Tax Evaders. What makes him capable of running our country?

I actually spoke with someone the other day with buyers remorse! We all have made bad choices at one time or another in our lives. BUT Obama is the Worst choice ever. He is such a nerd! He is a great example of why Affirmative Action is a bad idea.
