QOTD: "I thought it was a disgrace. I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest, outside the last couple of weeks of a presidential election where you are allowed to call your opponent anything short of a traitor. But, we’re a year-and-a-half away from Election Day and it was supposed to be a speech about policy. He didn’t even get to his own alternative until more than halfway through the speech. And when he did, he threw out numbers suspended in mid-air with nothing under them with all kinds of goals and guidelines and triggers that mean nothing. The speech was really about and entirely an attack on the [Rep. Paul] Ryan plan.” --Charles Krauthammer on Obama's Budget Speech

The choice is simple:

Raise Taxes and ruin a faltering economy.


Cut spending and jumpstart the economy.

The Democrats would prefer to ruin the economy with higher taxes because it would yield them more power.

That would be great for them but disastrous for everyone else.

Why would anyone BUT the Democrats want this?

@Dunce at 8:33,

Ever heard of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Do you realize unemployment averaged 4.7 percent for the entire 8 years of GWB?

You can read the comic book version that explains the meltdown here.

I made it into a comic book so that even drones like you could understand.

we are talking jobs. you idiots say tax cuts create jobs.

GWB takes office: Jan 01 Total non farm employment: 132,649,000

GWB leaves office: Jan 09 Total non-farm employment: 133,563,000

Increase in 8 years: 914,000

Number of jobs required in 8 years to keep up with population entering market:

= 8 years X 12 mon/yr x 150,000 jobs/mon = 14,400,000

GWB was 13,486,000 jobs short of a full load.

Just like his and you minds are a few bricks short of a full load.

Hey, someone left the irony on!

“the choice in only simple if you are simple minded and don't look at the facts.”

Speaking of “simple minded” , shouldn’t that be:

the choice IS only simple if you are simple minded and don't look at the facts.

Simple is as simple does.
