    I was just thinking the same thing. CM is one of a few self proclaimed "right-leaning moderates" that go out of their way to defend Obama.

    As long as we're invoking Ronald Reagan, I wonder what he would say about Republicans attacking other Republicans here.

    Class warfare is an interesting talking point Frank Luntz came up with for you guys to demonize the Dem's attempt to return tax rates back to Clinton levels -- when the country was running a surplus and had debt elimination in its sights.
    Who is Frank Luntz? Another shadowy figure that's as powerful as the almighty Grover Norquist?

    Reagan has more in common with Obama than he would with many republicans on this board.

    Oops, I should have kept reading. Looks like they probably ARE in cahoots!

    You don't have a counterpoint to the consistent job growth do you?

    You've learned well, Grasshopper. Just like Luntz says, it doesn't matter if it makes sense, just keep repeating it!

    Grover Norquist would qualify as boogeyman territory. Unfortunately I'm on the iPad and can't post that pic.

    No, he really doesn't. In fact, I think it's pathetic that you (and others) continue to attempt to redefine Reagan's legacy in lame attempt to prop up your puppet of a president. Not surprised, though. It's pretty much all you have left.

    It's actually been rather inconsistent. The unemployment rate would have INCREASED last month if so many people hadn't dropped out of the workforce.

    Obama made a huge blunder ("screwed the pooch") by forcing his health care bill (which does nothing to improve health care) instead of focusing on the economy. The result has been a slower-than-average recovery that has failed more often than succeeded in meeting expectations.

    It's pathetic that you are too blind to see it. Reagan raised taxes, worked with democrats and spent like a mad man. Not to mention sold arms to our enemies and negotiated with terrorists.

    Lets see, we should be more focused on class warfare then economy and jobs, and yes 8 percent is the new norm, you should apply to the club.

    I challenge you to show me the highest unemployment rate in the time period of 2007 and 2008, I am betting it was under 8%.

    it's been very consistent. It's gone up. 24 months in a row.

    Obama made a huge blunder ("screwed the pooch") by forcing his health care bill (which does nothing to improve health care) instead of focusing on the economy. The result has been a slower-than-average recovery that has failed more often than succeeded in meeting expectations.
    Obama will never meet the expectations of Republicans. He has done an adequate job on the economy. Certainly better than the guys you've voted for in the past.

    Your back must hurt from all of that twisting and spinning.
