Oh, So that explains the 4% unemployment #,record revenues to the fed coffers and a booming housing market under Bush. Those were signs we were headed to being a banna republic. And 40% increase in foodstamps, steady 8% unemployment, 4000 dollar per year decline in middle income and a healthcare scam that we can't pay for is the signs of a robust,full blown recovery......... it.

Sure did chump.

After pelosi took the gavel in 07.

5% unemployment, stock market at a steady 13K, and we had just knocked a couple of billion off the deficit.
Then you idiots took over and 18 months later the bottom fell out.

History isn't your strong point is it?

There is a such thing as a business cycle, little buddy. As a result of market-utopian policies under Bush, the private sector levered up. But it crashed eventually, didn't it chump?!

Who said being a "community organizer" doesn't prepare you for anything? The governing part may be a little dicey, but you sure know how to campaign.  And now we all know now about the Obama organization.  Obviously, GOP needs one.  

But in the run-up to 2016, we also need to find a way to extend our reach in popular culture.  That's because -- as Mark Halperin has noted -- the left is going to try make every viable GOP contender unacceptable in the eyes of the public before the 2016 season even starts off.

Obviously, if the right...
