Wrong, they compared the Reagan recession as the worst and guaged all other recorded recessions.
Your last para is correct. I'm sure that incessant bitchin' about the past is not part of her game plan. She would not be a successful PM if she did.
She simply reminds folks of the errors of their ways with painful object lessons at inopportune times.
She and I have worked together for nearly 20 years. We have yet to lose a firefight against a bad project.
You do, realize, however that much of the incessant bitching is not coming from the left, don't you? All the Obama is a ZERO stuff, when there are long term plans and the only analysis is based on highly partisan opinion is very much the same thing.
Just look at this board. How much of the whining has been about Obama? Most before he even took office, much within the first 30 days of taking office before any results could begin to be measured.
And now that results are starting to come in, and the economy looks like it might be starting to stabilize, we still hear nothing but bitching and whining and the same crap we heard from day one. WHY?
Your guy screwed up. VERY BADLY. That point has to be driven home every time we keep hearing about tax cuts for the few and deregulation in hopes that folks won't try it again.
And just this week we hear bitching from the right about DHS because NOW there is focus on the growing fringe of the right that is being stupid and DHS is watching them. The right built a monster and it has turned on them. NOW you claim pure innocence.
See how this looks to those of us who are trying to fix this mess and build some kind of consensus and coalition?
