    Exponential debt Not Sound

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush, announcing a package of measures to help homeowners struggling to pay their mortgages amid the subprime loan crisis, said on Friday the market turmoil stemming from the problem will take time to play out.


    But he said the subprime market woes represent only a small part of the economy and would not undermine what he said were sound fundamentals.

      What I'm trying to find out is what this has to do with Bush's proposal:

      "But he said the subprime market woes represent only a small part of the economy and would not undermine what he said were sound fundamentals."

      I assumed it has something to do with it since you put that in the post.

      --------------------

      What i put in the post was a contradiction to Presdent Bush's statement that the economy had sound fundamentals.
      exponential debt is not sound, any more than it was in the late 1920's. It was his seconf paragraph statement that i was responding to, as the title of the thread indicated.

      Saying that the economy had strong fundamentals, was not a proposal.

      <<It has everything to do with the economy not being sound, which president Bush proclaimed the economy was.>>

      What has everything to do with the economy not being sound?

      --------------------------

      Exponential debt.

      So what does your assertion about the economy have to do with Bush's proposal? I've now asked this several times.

      ------------------

      It has everything to do with the economy not being sound, which president Bush proclaimed the economy was.
      Exponential debt is not sound, thus the economy is not sound.

      You said "But he said the subprime market woes represent only a small part of the economy and would not undermine what he said were sound fundamentals" after quoting a news story about Bush's proposal. So logically something in that proposal contradicts Bush's claim the economy is not sound. Otherwise why would you post the item about Bush's proposal and then make that statement?

      Therefore, you implied Bush was admitting the economy is not sound.

      ------------------

      No, i said that exponential debt was not sound, thus the economy is not sound, which contradicts President Bush's claim of a sound economy.

    • r2bzjudge@sbcglobal.net r2bzjudge Sep 15, 2007 10:43 AM Flag

      That's not my question. You implied Bush was admitting the economy is not sound. When did he say that?

      ----------

      No, i did not imply that President Bush was admitting the economy was not sound. I was stating that exponential debt was not sound, thus the economy was not sound, thus President Bush's statment was incorrect.

    • r2bzjudge@sbcglobal.net r2bzjudge Sep 13, 2007 10:49 AM Flag

      When did Bush say the economic fundamentals are not sound?

      -------------

      The exponential debt says the economic fundamentals are not sound.

    • r2bzjudge@sbcglobal.net r2bzjudge Sep 9, 2007 5:28 PM Flag

      That's not my question. How is Bush CONTRADICTING HIMSELF?

      ----------------
      Because the economic fundamentals are not sound.
