Obama's policies have put more people on welfare than any president before him so this placement is most appropriate.

Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize, for which he did nothing, this is an "honor" he richly deserves.

"Obama's policies have put more people on welfare than any president before him"

How convenient it is that everyone likes to forget that the economy tanked under Bush's term. This title goes squarely to Bush.

Obama tanked the economy.
When it looked like the socialist "Might" win the election,everyone pulled their money out of sight.
Businesses stopped hiring or investing until they could see how stupid he would be.
Nothing will get noticeably better until he is gone.

O man, the truth is far from what you portray it to be. The lions share of blame for the economic meltdown of our economy lays in the hands of Jimmy Carter(D) and Bill Clinton(D). Carter initiated programs which foisted bad lending procedures on the fiduciary institutions and then Clinton took them multiple steps further by making denial of loans, and not JUST loans, but SUBPRIME LOANS to unworthy borrowers a crime, which BTW had several cases prosecuted by Barack Obama, setting a national example to other lenders that if they too failed to make similar bad loans to unqualified borrowers, they'd be similarly prosecuted.

This then led to parceling of junk bond loan packages that were then sold offshore which led in no small part to the global financial collapse.

BTW, while GWB was in office, at several points within his presidency there were Congressional mentions of the pending collapse and the havoc it would reap if these type loans/lending policies weren't curtailed as the Repubs tried in vain to get this issue before Congress for consideration.

However, the then Democratically controlled congress pulled their usual fear mongering BS in stating "The Repubs only care about the fat cats and are hell bent in keeping all Americans from the American dream of home ownership!" and belittled the warnings as attacks on the American middle class, quite successfully, I might add. Then the whole thing was quickly swept under the congressional rug after the congress REFUSED to even hold hearings on the matter ..... and was DAMNED SURE downplayed even further when all these bad loans went into default, setting into motion the domino effect globally!

GWB was a US president who just happened to be in office when the chickens finally came home to roost from these ridiculous lending practices, which then continued to unfold after Obama came into office. The difference however is that Obama has made a bad situation even worse through bad financial policies that were stated over and over to have historically proven themselves ineffective and even counterproductive.

To see the folly of his policies just ask yourself this O man : If you have $100 in the bank and no realistic hope that the balance would appreciably accrue anytime soon, would it seem practical to slap $1000 onto a credit card you know you couldn't reasonably expect to pay back, or worse yet the reality is that you'd then expect totally uninvolved parties to pay it back FOR YOU instead?

If that seems to make sense to you then it would seem you are lock-step in line with the lunacy Obama and the again Democratically controlled congress enacted with their "stimulus" spending hot smiley

BTW, in case you actually read this far PJ, good for you, but I won't hold my breath that you'll "get it" anyway eye rolling

Did someone forget about President Hoover? He plunged the country into the great depression. However, he really didn't put anyone on food stamps. He let them stave. President Roosevelt put the most people on food stamps when he enacted their existence. So, no it is not President Obama or Bush W.. spinning

Dayum. I didn't think I'd open such a big can of worms with this one. I thought the Obama foodstamps was hilarious. Far as the previous presidents go, well, I still have a lot to learn. History wasn't my favorite subject. winking

If George W. Bush had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?


If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?

If George W. Bush joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?

If George W. Bush had put 87000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one company had an accident would you have agreed?

If George W. Bush had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompTer installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in theUnited States , would you have said that he is clueless.

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas , would you havethought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 15 months -- so you'll have two years and nine months to come up with an answer.
