Why shouldn't we be back in a full fledged recession with only a bad outlook going forward because of Obama's policies? FDR did the same thing via big govt spending. We were thrown back into a recession, and it lasted for a decade under FDR, and Obama has copied the same model. GW BUSH did the opposite when we were in recession when he became President. BUSH favored sound economics, and lowered taxes as a stimulus for business creaion, and we immediately came out of the recession, and the economy GREW fro 52 straight months. No big govt spenidng that has failed miserably in Europe, and here in the USA time, and again. Obama's reaction to the dismal 4th QT numbers? Congress had better get spending bills passed, and "invest" in growing our economy! Only a liberal/ksocialist could be that stupid.
