What Do You Call Going From Worse to…Worse Yet? Worser?

Obama inherited some problems. Then he made them worse. The economy is in the tank. So he wants to raise taxes in the middle of a bad recession when people are out of work. Raising taxes in the recession of 1930 was one of the boneheaded things Herbert Hoover did that led to the Great Depression, which FDR made worse, or at least prolonged it, with the New Deal. Obama inherited a mild recession which we now know was made worse by his two stimulus plans because they sucked resources from the private economy to expand government. Now he wants to continue on this path of destruction by raising taxes that will sink the private sector economy deeper into a…depression?

I said in a previous post that the Republicans should respond to Obama’s bogus deadline threats on raising the debt limit by refusing all negotiation until every one of his idiotic deadlines passes with nothing happening. Marco Rubio seems to be saying something similar:

To paraphrase a speech by Ronald Reagan in 1980: A recession is when your neighbor loses his job; a depression is when you lose your job; and recovery is when Barack Obama loses his.
