    So lets turn over our health care to these idiots.....

    ...Just 10 days before taking office, Obama's top economic advisers released a report predicting unemployment would remain at 8 percent or below through this year if an economic stimulus plan won congressional approval.Yet the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that unemployment in May rose to 9.4 percent.
    Biden said the White House is keenly aware of the gap between the rhetoric used to sell fast passage of the legislation and the reality that has 14.5 million people unemployed. The administration had predicted that the stimulus bill would create or save as many as 3.5 million jobs.
    "No one realized how bad the economy was. The projections, in fact, turned out to be worse. But we took the mainstream model as to what we thought — and everyone else thought — the unemployment rate would be," Biden said...
    ..."Everyone guessed wrong at the time the estimate was made about what the state of the economy was at the moment this was passed,"

    I understand what he is trying to say, but, bless his heart, the man just can't turn a proper phrase to save his life!!

    When you are talking about spending $800,000,000,000 on a plan that hasn't been read thoroughly by most and not at all by some, the word, "guess" isn't a word you want to associate with that kind of fiscal accountability.

    As I said, I know what he meant to say.

    I just have to wonder how many of his colleagues had to take an antacid after supper tonight for their heartburn?

    In few words: The White House deliberately LIED to the Congress and the American people to pass this legislation.






    The Demoncrats either lie to their own..... or they are complacent in the lie!
    If the former.... what party demands such loyalty of its members when deliberate mis-representation is used to manipulate the vote of its members?
    If the latter.....why blame the few.... Republicans, Democrats, and/or Third Parties for standing in opposition to its passage?

    The only people that actually "guessed wrong" was the Obama Administration.

    The only question is if they are really that stupid or they just deliberately lied.

    You're saying you knew how bad the 4th quarter numbers would be? I didn't expect them to be as bad as they turned out to be. Most economist were taken by surprise also.

    it's their job to know, and they did, but lied to the rest of us, so obama could get his way, and destroy this country with taxes

    So when Bush was given bad information concerning WMDs in Iraq - he lied.

    But when Obama is given bad information concerning the state of the economy - he gets a pass.

    BTW -LeBuick, you say, "I didn't expect them to be as bad as they turned out to be", what is the basis for your economic expertise? You have previously admitted to not even knowing who John Maynard Keynes was.

    A grandiose desire to defend obama blindly.

    Someone once said "Tell a lie long enough and it becomes the truth". Seems the O is a polished practitioner of this philosophy. At least some of the posters on this forum believe any thing he says.

    If any of these politicians we put our faith in were being up front and honest with us they'd be telling us the international banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve System manipulates our economy to consolidate our wealth into their hands and it's been doing this for a hundred years.

    So, I guess it all comes down to which party of liars we choose to put our faith in.

    really, is guessing how we want the government run, our finances?
    well, we guess, or
    he just guessed at it or
    we made a guess and went with that

    doesn't make sense to me to make decisions based on guess rather then facts (or even something even presented as fact that he believes is fact), anything but 'we guessed at, so sorry, we were wrong'.

    Everyone didn't guess wrong. Some people guessed right. They were fairly confident that Obama's plan wouldn't work. They didn't know for sure, but they thought so. And it looks like they are being proven right, by Biden's own admission.
