lowstudent: "And therein lay the lie that is Obama and the same lie that Obama tells.

There were other paths beside utterly disastrous and doing nothing."

Talk about a lie.

First, I never said that there weren't a continuum of choices that were possible. There are more than two choices, as well as the differences in degree at which you pursue the choice (i.e., how big or small any government action could or should be).

Second, what Obama economic policy or decision can you definitively point to that was "utterly disastrous"? At the very most, you can say that the actions taken by Obama were not effective ENOUGH, did not produce ENOUGH job growth. How is it a disaster that the US added over 150,000 jobs last month? Do you even know what a "disaster" actually means?

Here's a hint - a disaster would be LOSING 800,000 jobs a month, like when Obama took office. There have been about 3 YEARS worth of consecutive monthly job gains during Obama's presidency. Has it been ENOUGH? No. An "utter disaster"?? Hardly.
