that one let's see you try this question: "Is if fair for the GOP to bash Obama on the economy when they have fought every stimulus measure and forced cuts to Government employment (hitting states particularly hard) ... all to kill any recovery.
According to the talking heads of Corporate media, Obama is 'all powerful' in D.C. and gets everything he wants. THe original stimulus wasn't pared down a third to try to get Republicans to let any stimulus pass at all and every stimulus/jobs measure proposed by Democrats hasn't been fought tooth and nail by the Republicans. No the Republicans legislative war against Obama hasn't had any affect on the economy. Yeah, the Republicans have not been responsible for down-sizing the original stimulus bill and every other stimulus/jobs bill proposed by the Dems. -- Yeah, RIGHT!
This is something the Corporate mouthpeices don't dare bring up. In fact, I think since Obama entered the WHite House, the word filibuster is taboo on Corporate tv (as in "the Republicans keep setting new records in the number of filibusters they have mounted to slow down or stop legislation from being passed - unless it meets their requirement of being inadequate in stimulus size or big enough in terms of cuts to programs - leading to Government layoffs of police, firemen and teahers.")
