This. Greece shows evidence that austerity doesn't work, and you guys can't handle that, so you say the Greece policy isn't really austerity.Every news source in the world links Greece with austerity. Look at what they have done in Greece. They have slashed budgets 75%. Doesn't get much more austere than that.
Christ, it's undeniable that the Greek way has been multiple times more austere than other European solutions. Remember Ireland? They were in financial turmoil as well, at the same time Greece was. Greece went the austerity path, and Ireland went the Keynesian path. Greece has been a major clusterfuck, and Ireland has been notably successful. Greece went austere enough to cause rioting and people who can't buy food, and you're saying greece's failure is that it didn't go...
On the contrary, this proves that the Democrats are not simply rubber-stamping the President's policies. They are not acting in a hyperpartisan manner.
No other president has had to. No other president has had an opposition party that made a public vow to obstruct. No other president has had to face a strict party opposition the way Obama is.It's so convenient that the Republicans get to act in the most horrendous hyperpartisan way ever in political history, and then blame the president for not working with them. But that's exactly what happened. Obama could present the most beautiful piece of legislation in history, one...
But surely all that money will "trickle down" to the masses from the media that benefited directly from the spending, right? Republicans can just look at this as a supply-side stimulus, akin to a tax break for the rich media companies. Right? RIGHT?
  LOL. Don't expect to get an honest response from him. He's just had his ass (or at least part of it) handed to him on a platter showing exactly how gullible he is, and he's in denial mode.
  Wait, so now you're saying that people voted FOR Obama because they saw a video (a Republican attack piece) that someone else got a free phone! And that more people (people who didn't actually get a free phone themselves) voted for him because of this issue than against him because of this issue?   Seriously!?   You're no MJ, that's for sure.
This column explains this very thread perfectly, as well as life, the universe, and well, uh... everything.   "But most of all, I suspect that the election results must be other-world mortifying to those radical far right Republicans who are so pissed off that everything they stand for has been repudiated. In a terrible economy, with 7.9 unemployment, a $16 trillion national debt and a $1 trillion budget deficit, Barack Obama still beat Republicans and won...
Looks more like a lady who had no clue where her phone really came from, except that it came while Obama was president, which was good enough evidence for her to attribute it to someone she supported anyway.
This lie was debunked in 2009!   http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/   The truth won't stop certain people from latching on to this lie as one of the many reasons Obama won reelection.
