Big Babyism
"...What you have here is big babyism. After the worst downturn in memory, bequeathed a massive and growing debt, two failing wars, a financial sector threatening to bring down the entire economy, Obama has betrayed this person by preventing a Second Great Depression.

We will hear more of these non-sequiturs; the 24-hour news cycle prevents any memory past the last six months; the easy, lazy meme of Obama-the-lefty will be pressed home by FNC/RNC and the MSM will grab onto it because it's a narrative they can understand and that helps insulate them from charges of bias. Than none of this has any direct relationship with economic and political reality is barely relevant."

2. "preventing a Second Great Depression"; it would be nice if this was true
but for nearly 20% of our population, the depression wasn't and still hasn't been addressed.
