Why is anyone surprised at this???
The economy did start to tank under Bush but it was because of the housing crisis! NOT because of Bush's tax cuts or his fiscal policy. It was under Clinton where the government started making it easy for everyone to afford housing. They forced the banks to make loans to risky people. This is what caused the start of the whole financial meltdown!
When 9-11 happened Bush didn't whine about how bad the economy was...no...he cut taxes for everyone! Businesses and individuals. And guess what? The economy started roaring back. This hasn't happened under Obama. He knows NOTHING on what it takes to run a business and yet everyone acts surprised that he hasn't done a better job. Well, you don't hire an electrician to perform brain surgery! Just like you don't hire a community organizer to run the world's largest economy!
Wake up America!
When I was in collage, I work at a gas station pumping gas, fast food restaurants, anything that got some green in my hand. I was making minimum wage($2.35hr) and today its what $5.00, $6.00hr. Today's kids must think it is below them to do this, what else could it be. The words that comes to mind are "ENTITLEMENT" that they probably got from there parents. Not all parents are like this but, a lot are!
When the kids read this I am sure they will say "Just another old fool" and I guess they will be right because;
When I graduated from college I had to take a job in my field for minimum wage, my take home pay was $127 every TWO weeks. Kids today could also find such jobs but they are Entitled to so much more (in their opinions) that they don't do it.
I managed to stick it out and continued to be productive after each advancement until I eventually reached the $100 to $200k level. Now these poor me chumps and their elected puppets want my money because they say they deserve it.
I remember when this philosophy was sold to millions of people by Marks - "For those with the means to those with the need" good thought but as we all know communism always collapses upon itself, whether it is headed by Stalin or Jerry Garcia.
Obummer has a greeeat plan to get Americans working again! Tax employers and make mandatory health care for them too expensive. Keep tax policy changes an ongoing mystery!
Yeah, all this is proven to fail in other countries, but it's never been tried in THIS country.
What's that, empty Maobama chair? It's been in place for over three years in America? Well, isn't it failing? Do what to myself? Geez, Clint was right ...

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market punctuated July with a broad-based retreat that sent the S&P 500 lower by 2.0% with all ten sectors ending in the red. The benchmark index posted a monthly decline of 1.5%, while the Russell 2000 (-2.3%) underperformed to end the month lower by 6.1%.
To get a better feel for what led to today's retreat, we'd like to look back to Wednesday, when the market had ample reason to rally, but did not. Instead, it ended basically flat after a sloppy day of ... More
