    Default GOP dumb assery: Is Barack Obama the next Jimmy Carter?

    Obama-Carter?

    November 2, 2008 Up until recently, we had a record high in the stock market, low unemployment, low interest rates and lower gas prices. What happened? Just look back to 2006: The Democrats took over Congress. Now, Barack Obama says he's coming to save the day.

    The Democrats keep saying that to vote for John McCain would be voting for President Bush again. We don't need another Jimmy Carter, either. Under Carter we had double- digit inflation, double-digit unemployment, double-digit interest rates and some of the highest taxes. This is exactly what Obama is preaching.

    Does anyone realize that companies don't pay taxes, people pay taxes? If a company is taxed more, it has a couple of options: lay off employees in order to still make profits or pass the taxes on to the consumers.

    I personally don't see the comparison. :\

    Eh, I've never thought Carter was all that bad. Whatever. Oh, and Nicole...the official term is 'dumbfuckery'. It's in the GR dictionary, recently added.

    Yes, I believe both were officially recognized by the GR dictionary institute.

    Yeah, and that's why companies have a little thing called 'corporate tax loopholes.'

    IF McCain wins we'll all feel the noose around our necks.

    Bush was the next Jimmy Carter. For about 5 minutes, and then it got much worse. These people kill me, it's like for them the last 8 years never happened.
