Obama 2012
Edited on Sun Aug-21-11 10:41 AM by ProSense
President Obama did not, I repeat, did not cause the decades of decline suffered by the low-income and middle-class Americans. Nor did he trigger the severe downward spiral this country has been on since the end of 2007. It's easy to sit back and take the facts about state of the country and lay the blame at the President's feet. This is the America Obama inherited as President.

Joseph Stiglitz (December 2007, before the full breadth and consequences of the economic crisis were known.)

<...>

Whoever moves into the White House in January 2009 will face an unenviable set of economic circumstances. Extricating the country from Iraq will be the bloodier task, but putting Americas economic house in order will be wrenching and take years.

The most immediate challenge will be simply to get the economys metabolism back into the normal range. That will mean moving from a savings rate of zero (or less) to a more typical savings rate of, say, 4 percent. While such an increase would be good for the long-term health of Americas economy, the short-term consequences would be painful. Money saved is money not spent. If people dont spend money, the economic engine stalls. If households curtail their spending quicklyas they may be forced to do as a result of the meltdown in the mortgage marketthis could mean a recession; if done in a more measured way, it would still mean a protracted slowdown. The problems of foreclosure and bankruptcy posed by excessive household debt are likely to get worse before they get better. And the federal government is in a bind: any quick restoration of fiscal sanity will only aggravate both problems.

And in any case theres more to be done. What is required is in some ways simple to describe: it amounts to ceasing our current behavior and doing exactly the opposite. It means not spending money that we dont have, increasing taxes on the rich, reducing corporate welfare, strengthening the safety net for the less well off, and making greater investment in education, technology, and infrastructure.

<...>

Some portion of the damage done by the Bush administration could be rectified quickly. A large portion will take decades to fixand thats assuming the political will to do so exists both in the White House and in Congress. Think of the interest we are paying, year after year, on the almost $4 trillion of increased debt burdeneven at 5 percent, thats an annual payment of $200 billion, two Iraq wars a year forever. Think of the taxes that future governments will have to levy to repay even a fraction of the debt we have accumulated. And think of the widening divide between rich and poor in America, a phenomenon that goes beyond economics and speaks to the very future of the American Dream.

<...>


The President inherited a mess and he is responsible for doing everything he can to help to fix. Everything from ending wars to saving industries and strengthening America's social contract.

Preventing another Great Depression

Through the first seven months of 2011, the economy has added 930,000 total non-farm jobs or just 133 thousand per month. This is a better pace of payroll job creation than last year, but the economy still has 6.8 million fewer payroll jobs than at the beginning of the 2007 recession.

Krugman:

<...>

So about half of the rise in the ratio is due to a fall in the denominator rather than a rise in the numerator.

That still leaves a significant rise in spending. Whats that about? Heres one way to look at the federal budget; I compare growth rates in spending from 2000 to 2007 and from 2007 to 2010:



Income security is unemployment insurance, food stamps, SSI, refundable tax credits in short, the social safety net. Medicaid is a means-tested program that also serves as part of the safety net. Yes, spending in these areas has surged because the economy is depressed, and lots of people are unemployed.

What were seeing isnt some drastic expansion of Big Government; were seeing the government we already had, responding to a terrible economic slump.

<...>


Dear Republicans and Republican enablers, this is much more good than harm.

Ending wars:

- In June 2009, U.S. Forces occupied 357 bases. U.S. Forces currently occupy 121 bases, and are expected to reduce that number to 94 bases by the end of August.

Operation New Dawn began with 94 military sites in Iraq, in September 2010. Today, that's down to 48 sites. Seven more sites will shut down in August, Richardson said.

On June 22, 2011 the President addressed the American people about the way forward in Afghanistan. We have made substantial progress on the objectives the President laid out at West Point in 2009, and he made clear that we will begin the drawdown of U.S. troops from a position of strength. We have exceeded our expectations on our core goal of defeating al-Qaida killing 20 of its top 30 leaders, including Osama bin Laden. We have broken the Talibans momentum, and trained over 100,000 Afghan National Security Forces. The U.S. will withdraw 10,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2011, and the 33,000 surge troops he approved in December 2009 will leave Afghanistan by the end of summer 2012.

Rachel Maddow (December 2010)

MADDOW: If the Senate ratifies the START Treaty tomorrow, it caps an astonishing period in American political history.

For the last two years, Democrats have held the White House as well as big majorities in both the House and the Senate. Their record of achievement in that time, even in the face of unified, at times totally random Republican opposition, Republican opposition even do things Republicans had proposed in the first place, unified Republican opposition even to their own ideastheir track record even in the face of that is historic.

Whether you agree or disagree with what Democrats have done in the first two years of President Obamas presidency, they have freaking done it. The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act for women, expanding childrens health insurance, new hate crimes legislation that they said could not be done, tobacco regulation, credit card reform, student loan reform, the stimulus - which in addition to helping pull this country back from the brink of a Great Depression was also the largest tax cut ever, the largest investment in clean energy ever, the single largest investment in education in our country ever.

There was also a little thing you may have heard of called health reform. Also, Wall Street reform, the improvements to the new G.I. bill, the most expansive food safety bill since the 1930s.

Edited spelling of "Maddow."

28. The vast majority of Americans don't even know this. The problem is how to spread this info
far and wide, and keep on spreading it. Not letting the American
people know is certainly of no help to Obama.
