    The Republicans will continue to discredit, discount, and dismiss the slightest mention of economic recovery/improvement until the election. They have been doing so for the past three + years so why stop now?

    Could you point out where I've done that in this thread? In fact, I've recognized several metrics that show economic growth - there's no denying that the economy is growing. Once again, compared to other past recessions/depressions, we've recovered horribly and I think there are very specific reasons for that that point to democratic policies.

    Do you deny that the growth has been slower than past recoveries? Are you OK with the fact that job growth has stagnated? That most of this year has shown signs of the economy sputtering and lurching forward instead of taking off...?

    As Weino's posts demonstrate, this recovery has been flatter and weaker than any recovery from any other recession. If such a recovery had occurred on a Republican president's watch instead of a Democratic president's watch, democrats would be just as criticial. And rightly so.

    I think this is a really interesting topic, so I'm not real worried about it.

    I am disappointed that we didn't have more people weigh in - it would have been good to hear from Seattle or cactusboy on this topic.

    The LEI is good news, I'll grant you that... But, once again "slow, but steady" recovery. If we want the recovery to kick up a notch, we need to make a change in The White House.

    Here's a great synopsis of economy under Obama from CNN: http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2012/...omy/index.html

    As I've been saying, recovery, but way tooooo slooooowww!! Time for Obama to gooooo!!!
    I have no problem with you arguing that point. I've not argued that Obama should stay. I can see why some would want him to not be elected again and I also see why some would want him elected again.

    While no one will believe this statement, I'm currently undecided as to who I will be voting for.

    Actually weino and others have simply claimed it is slower than previous ones. Not that it isn't there.

    I have no reason not to believe you. I'm curious what sort of things will you be looking at to make your decision?

    How they run their campaigns. Who I believe more during the debates. For me it's a gut feeling of who I think can do a better job. As I said in previous elections, each candidate will be roughly 80% exactly the same once they take office.

    But would they (Democrats) have purposefully obstructed recovery just to regain political power?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain this is a veiled accusation that Republicans have tried to obstruct an economic recovery. I'm wondering which specific bills Republicans have obstructed in the last couple of years, and how those bills would have led to a stronger recovery.

    Anyway, to answer the question more directly, I think we've seen in the Missouri Senate race that Democrats are willing to do just about anything to get elected. Why else would they want Akin to remain in the race? To them, serious issues like rape, abortion, and race are just political tools. We've seen it before with their treatment of people such as Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. There's no reason to believe that they wouldn't block solutions designed to strengthen the economy if it gave them an opportunity to gain power.

    Party over people.

    No we get to see a recession happen under the republicans watch

    There was the debt ceiling and government shutdown things, which did seem to hurt confidence and stunt the recovery.

    Is it your belief that Republicans were the sole reason for that?
