I love how people actually believe the President is solely responsible for economic success/failure in this (more or less) free market. Anyone with half a brain recognizes that economic policy in this country is set by several hundred more people than just the visible figurehead of this nation - and that economic activity is in the hands of hundreds of millions of average citizens. It simply makes it easier to brainwash the electorate with commercialized propaganda to pin the blame of the failure of the economy on a single person - and summarily tie it to another person within that same party/group.

Depressions and recessions are the artificial creation of interventionist economic policy. Without intervention, the economy would be constantly adapting to changing market situations - certain sectors failing, others succeeding, propagating a move towards profitable endeavors in the short and long term. Through economic-leftist policies that introduce artificial incentives and similar ploys to encourage deviations from the flow of the free market, we see recession take hold. We start placing too many of our eggs in too few baskets, and when one fails, well, we see what the results can be.

Problem at hand is that few politicians truly recognize this. Economically, I cannot stand most Democrats and more than a few Republicans.

On the other hand, I'm libertarian, so give me a social issue to argue and you'll see me in line with some of the most "radical" of left-wingers.
