Fw: Jan. 3, 2007

Remember the day… January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress: At the time, the DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5 percent. The Unemployment rate was 4.6 percent. Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION. Remember the day… January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!! THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6 percent Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCO! So when you are blaming Bush… Remember JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. The Day the Democrats took over! When liberals/progressives succeed, America fails.
November is coming!

Interesting that you chose the date the the democrats took congress as your start date, and not the date Bush left office.

Can't imagine why.

If I run alL of my crap together and CAPITALIZE RANDOM WORDS and make use of the Following Things: colons and question marks and rhetorical questions and...elipses...and lots of exclamation points!!!! and a TOTAL OF 9 RANDOM NUMBERS and some DATES, does that make my argument more compelling? I think so!!! And if I also THROW OUT SCARY NAMES like you know, THAT GAY GUY, do you think it will work??? That maybe nobody will notice that it's TOTAL BULLSHIT?! THANK YOU REPUBLICANS FOR TOTALLY MISREPRESENTING STUFF!!! It's more beleivable when you Write Like This! Remember that when Right-wing Propaganda wins, we wind up where we are now.

The Non-War on Christmas distraction is also coming!

Yes, it's all of those policies forced upon us by the Democrats that have run us into the gutter.

Oh, wait. Most of the Democratic policies haven't passed because the Republicans have blocked them at a record pace. That means that in the past three and a half years, the only bills to pass are the ones that were also supported by Republicans.

Somehow, the Right Wingers always forget that.

Let's just quote a lot of random info taking out of context and blame the Dems for everything!

Works like a charm. Yes, kidz, the Democrats are, one & all, manifestations of SATAN, and everything Democrats do are bad, wrong and horrid.

The end.

P.S. They have teh ghey, too.

No sh*t, but good they alerted the Tea Party because they wouldn't know otherwise... guess the Koch brothers are concerned about that. Wonder why.

"When liberals/progressives succeed, America fails."

Wrong. When liberals succeed, America wins.

"Liberal policies made America the freest, wealthiest, most successful and most powerful nation in human history. Conservatism in power always threatens to undo that national progress, and is almost always frustrated by the innate decency and democratic instincts of the American people...

If your workplace is safe; if your children go to school rather than being forced into labor; if you are paid a living wage, including overtime; if you enjoy a 40-hour week and you are allowed to join a union to protect your rights -- you can thank liberals. If your food is not poisoned and your water is drinkable -- you can thank liberals. If your parents are eligible for Medicare and Social Security, so they can grow old in dignity without bankrupting your family -- you can thank liberals. If our rivers are getting cleaner and our air isn't black with pollution; if our wilderness is protected and our countryside is still green -- you can thank liberals.

If people of all races can share the same public facilities; if everyone has the right to vote; if couples fall in love and marry regardless of race; if we have finally begun to transcend a segregated society -- you can thank liberals. Progressive innovations like those and so many others were achieved by long, difficult struggles against entrenched power.

What defined conservatism, and conservatives, was their opposition to every one of those advances.
The country we know and love today was built by those victories for liberalism -- with the support of the American people."

- Joe Conason

To summarize:

America doesn't fail.

Instead, conservatism is held at bay and life gets
better for everyone. Even conservatives.

Boy, if only the Democrats hadn't taken over Congress the year after the peak of the housing bubble, and just as people started worrying about naked short selling and credit default swaps, we wouldn't be in this mess, no sirree!

I'm sure we would've hit Dow 30,000 by now if it hadn't been for those Democrats!

Wow, you really have a bunch of looney leftists commenting...tell them to check your facts since what you posted is true: http://message.snopes.com/showthread.php?t=82091

since what you posted is true


Hint: pointing to a message board posting at Snopes.com is NOT the same thing as saying its "true" according to snopes. Half a point for trying to invoke Snopes, minus 10 points for intellectual dishonestly and laziness.

And the Yahoo answer service is about one step above having monkey fling their feces against a wall and divining and answer from the splatter pattern.

Yeah, the e-mail contains very little "truth." For example, one claim from the e-mail is "52 straight months of job creation." Here's the BLS monthly employment change for the past ten years. It doesn't include the very beginning of Bush's term, but there was net job loss for most of 2002 and 2003 and losses spread throughout his term.

They might have meant 52 total months out of the first 72, but I don't have the data to confirm that.

Meanwhile, if we're going to cherry-pick numbers instead of trying to understand how we got here, enjoy a fun chart explaining how we got from a projected budget surplus under Clinton to a massive budget deficit under Bush.

I think the silliest bit, looking back on this e-mail after several years, is how hard it tries to paint the financial collapse, caused by banks and Wall Street making terrible lending decisions, as solely the responsibility of the government. Yeah, that's right, the government's safety net forced you to make huge profits off bad loans, then come crying to us taxpayers when it all collapsed!
