say it ain't so sam

In the retard forum where the fishes swim their is a slam about OBAMA blaming Richard(the dick)Nixon for putting the national weather an oceanic dept. in the wrong dept.
but the imbecile that wrote it is a typical propaganda retard!
Repeatedly, President-elect, and then President, Bush talked about how the economy was in trouble. Arriving in office following the longest continuous economic upturn in generations, President Bush seized on a stock market that had faltered some in the uncertainty following the 2000 Presidential election.

The "bad" economy, he talked about. Again and again. The "bad" economy.

You know what happened as a result? I can tell you from my personal experience, the CFO of the corporation I was working for called a meeting and said, "The President keeps talking about the economy being 'bad.' Now, things don't seem bad, but let's just hold off on any new hires until we see how this pans out. And, let's hold off on all non-vital purchases, just for the time being."

And you can see right there how simply the words of President George W. Bush started slamming the breaks of the economy.

This, of course, all snowballed. First, people held off on hiring and purchases to see if the President's bleak prediction would come true. When this happened, it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Less hiring and corporate spending created a measurable slowdown in the economy, which led people to say, "Hey, maybe the President is right," and tighten up even more. Each report grew worse and worse due to this, and a nation that was being told to expect the worst slowly came to believe it.

So, to put it simply, President Bush's constant talk about the economy being "bad" led it to be so.

The argument that Clinton is somehow to blame is the most comical thing we at The Moderate Independent have heard to date. The people who make this argument - partisan Republicans - invariably also claim that Clinton was not responsible for the prosperity during his two terms in office. That, they say, was just lucky timing.

Think about this: they say Clinton was not responsible for the economy while he was in office, but is responsible for the economy when he is not in office. Anyone with a basic grasp of logic knows these two things can not go together. Either the fate of the economy is luck or

well lady when you run this back to ur master make sure you add "OBAMA IS A QUICK STUDY SO IF YOU DON'T WANT HIM TO USE YOUR TACTICS YOU BETTER BE MORE SECRETIVE"

President Obama now blames Dick Nixon for the country's woes!

"If you're wondering what the genesis of this was apparently, this had something to do with President Nixon being unhappy with his Interior Secretary for criticizing the Vietnam War. So he decided not to put NOAA in what would have been a more sensible place," Obama said in remarks today.

The remarks were made as he announced that he is taking the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration out of the Commerce Department and putting it under the jursidiction of the Interior Department, in the name of government efficiency.

: Obama could have simply announced an efficiency reorganization. But it so much a part of his reflexive nature that he had to make the snide insult of Nixon. It shows the low character of the person in office.
oh really you guys bitch 24/7 even on facebook! some of those receive money from the right!
