    which wasnt anything different than the entire country at the time. Its not like his policies set them apart and went against what was going on nationally. That would have been more notable.

    True but those politics matched national politics in the early 2000s. Everything was working
    starting with those tax cuts. It was the greatest era of prosperity in the history of man. At least what he did was working unlike the last 4 years with 23M unemployed. Unemployment
    just went up again to 7.9% from 7.8% and he still lost.

    First off, I'm not a Libby. Second, PBS is heavily relying on government subsidies, because pledges are down significantly. I'm sure someone of Romney's stature would be aware of that. It would be like pulling the rug from under them. Thus, the loss of thousands of jobs.

    and saving $500 Billion in taxpayer dollars.

    I'm sure if the demand is ther the private sector could add an additional network to provide the same service for half the cost, increasing government revenues without increasing government debt.

    it was good... until about 2008, now were where were at. 7 years in office and it was still all Clinton to blame. we continued to see the same effects that Bush left us with for the entire first year of Obamas. Since then the Unemployment rate has dropped, the debt has continued to grow but at a slowing pace.

    Times are hard, and everyone wants this turned around as quick as possible, but its not something were going to see immediate results with. Seems everyone thinks it should bounce back as fast as it fell. I dont think thats realistic despite who the president was.

    Well, that's why those thousands of people didn't feel like taking that chance with Romney. That was my point.

    It's like being a personal trainer and trying to convince someone obese that they aren't going to lose fifty pounds in two days and the only way that it would even be possible, would surely be dangerously unhealthy.

    and that is the democrats plan... to put as many of us on the "payroll" as humanly possible so they can assure themselves a solid voting block. Once your hand is out, it's easier to leave it there then pull it back and figure it out on yourown.

    asgreed, at thsio point I'd settle for progress over continued decline. Perhaps a balanced budget is unreasonable at the moment, but if the deficit was reduced by 25% each year it would show progress... Right now with the budget almost double the GDP, we are in trouble, adn it's getting worse.

    HUH? OBY increased the debt by $5T in his first 3 years ($2T just since the ceiling
    was recently raised more than any other Prez.

    W increased it by $1T in 8 yrs with two wars going on. He spent millions in Africa on
    miscito nets. BTW, he invited the Pastor of my church over for dinner. The guy fell off
    his chair when he called. Our church has owned an orphanage in Kenya for over 20 years
    and W found out about it. Many of its graduates became town mayors and national
    leaders. The Pastor and his wife had dinner with the Bush's then he briefed the entire
    cabinet on the orphanage operations. W used that info to raise millions for the nets.

    Yea, but it would have been faster than it is now. He'll give new meaning to the term
    lame duck president because with a billion spent on the campaign, everything remains
    the same - the WH, the Senate and House of REps. Actually I think the GOP lost 3
    seats in the senate.

    Yes, and the housing bust started with Clinton when he wanted everyone to have the
    American dream - a house. So he got the Fanny Maes (Barney Frank who stole millions
    from them because he ran them and the Freddie Macks (Chris Dodd who stole million
    from them because he ran them) to give out loans w/o checking peoples backgrounds.
    The gov't then got the private banks to do the same. People couldn't pay and the
    system broke and the economy collapsed but OBY was right when he said the guy in
    power at the time will get the blame. He won yesterday because W was in power at
    the time and the people still blame him not OBY for not fixing things. Same with FDR
    when he couldn't fix things. He kept getting re-elected until he died.

    HUH? Your sure giving the liberal argument. Now jonboy is talking like me.

    Second, PBS is heavily relying on government subsidies, because pledges are down significantly. I'm sure someone of Romney's stature would be aware of that. It would be like pulling the rug from under them. Thus, the loss of thousands of jobs.

    Jon just answered that for me but youre knit picking. He would have created a lot more
    jobs than lost at PBS. I worked for Ch 46 in Atlanta. It was sold to the Chicago Tribune and they laid off all management and put their own in. We all got other jobs. I went back
    into the gov't and rose to a high grade and retired early but I started over but was still
    young enough to do it.

    Anyway Ex and Jab, I've really enjoyed this discussion w/o all the insults I usually get.
    Thanks guys.
