    You are missing the GOP under the boat harpooning from below…

      When GOP is in the WH with a democratic Congress, the economy is obviously the president and his party’s fault. When a Democratic president and Democratic Congress (follwed by a 50/50 congress) is in power it is still the GOPs fault. Nevermind anything over the last two years, because that stuff was all good. How do we know, well, we said so!!!

    Yes. Because we know harpoons are deadly to boats…. or something…

    Trillions of dollars in debt, and STILL hemorrhaging worthless cash. But there’s no problem with that, right?

    “Washington had already defaulted on its loans by allowing the dollar to weaken against other currencies — eroding the wealth of creditors including China, Guan said.” Chinese Ratings Agency Says The US Has Already Defaulted

    Monetizing the debt by printing money, or if you prefer the politically correct term of “quantitative easing,” which the Fed Chair Mr. Bernanke promised he wouldn’t do… right before he did it, INCREASES the value of our currency, right? Having twice as many pieces of paper representing the value of something DOUBLES the value of the currency, right?

    So, which is more dangerous? To play along with the sinking boat analogy, continuing out to sea in a boat already leaking badly while refusing to fix the leaks (the democrats), or refusing to allow the boat to go any farther from shore until enough of the leaks are fixed to allow the bilge pumps to keep up with the remaining leaks (the republicans)?

      Texan2driver – Make that “Saying you refuse to allow the boat to go any farther from the shore…” GOP doesn’t have a good track record on spending…

        Rather than ask which is more dangerous, perhaps a better way to ask the last question would have been “Which is safER?” Emphasis on the ER. You’re absolutely right that neither party has a good track record, but at least one party is at least trying on some level to plug the spending leaks, and it’s not the democrats.
