wow! some people are very forgetful! Bush is to blame. Also, some people were applying for mortgages knowing that they should not be approved and accepted the mortgages anyway. The fat cats on Wall Street are criminals and the mid- lower class is paying the price for Wall Streets glamour life style

No.

The "Great Depression" was a global problem, that actually hit the USA last.

When the Republicans stole the election of 2000 that put the US in a position to have a depression. And as expected resulted in the worldwide depression. We are still seeing recovery but the damage was significant and we may never fully recover from what the Bush Administration did to the world in our lifetimes. Maybe the next generation might see some prosperity but maybe not. Especially if they let Jeb in in 2016.

Incorrect, when Bush was in office our country was strong. Look up your stats before you run your biased mouth. Out of every president we have ever had Obama is by far the worst when it comes to debt. He as in HIMSELF and his organization dug this hole for us.
Report as
actually obama's "debt" was the effect of bush's administration!
Report as
Very true it's time to take the blame obama has had four years but things have only got worse and until he's gone it will continue
Report as
No it has gotten better under Obama. But the destructive consequences of 8 years of Republican agenda politrikcery, rascalism, and general downbright evil; the damage is extensive, but the recovery continues, in spite of the republicans.
Report as
Joosshyyyboi speaking of statistics, do you even know where our debt even came from? Sure Obama spends, so did everyone else as our spending increases every single year since ever. But if you look at how much percent of GDP that amount increases by per year, you'd be in for a surprise. Not only that, you should look into an American government textbook every now and then. Congress decides on the budget, the President only inputs his thoughts. To fall in line with all the Teapublicans screaming to the top of young lungs about an Obama spending spree that never happened is foolish. As much as it is foolish to suggest that Obama is raising taxes. Did you enjoy your Bush tax cuts? Well , it contributed more to our debt rather than contributing to the Teapublican myth called the "trickling down effect".

The Great Depression was a singular event. It was "Great" because it was global, not just a single nation. We are actually working our way out of a recession, if we can keep up what we have going.

I think that is fault of thos ewho buy chinese. I prefer to pay a few cents more and buy American. Otherwise it feels to me like economic cannibalism.
Report as
I think you would be hard pressed to find enough products for your basic needs that are USA produced.

Of course not, the steps Obama and congress took last few years averted a major depression for us. Now housing is up, the stock market is up, consumer confidence is usually up (depending on how nasty the arguments in DC get)
Unemployment is slowly getting better.
