I'm sticking to my March (2008) recession prediction. The monied boys and the GOP crooks will hand the Democrats a quagmire in Iraq, a recession here at home and a cranky electorate.... and then they will ask the Dems, "Why did you let this happen?".

One other wager I think I would make as well......I bet the economic decline that has begun with Junior, under his leadership, will all be blamed on..........wait for this one too......Democrats.
March 3, 2009, less than 6 weeks into the Obama administration, WSJ online...
Americans have welcomed the Obama era in the same spirit of hope the President campaigned on. But after five weeks in office, it's become clear that Mr. Obama's policies are slowing, if not stopping, what would otherwise be the normal process of economic recovery. From punishing business to squandering scarce national public resources, Team Obama is creating more uncertainty and less confidence -- and thus a longer period of recession or subpar growth.
Current Newsbusters poll question...."Is the Bear Market Obama's Fault?"
More from Newsbusters...
A consistent media meme since Election Day has been that Barack Obama was inheriting a recession that some believe began as far back as December 2007.
Since then, despite various rescue plans from his Administration, and the passage of a $787 billion stimulus package, the stock market has continued to plummet while employers shed payrolls in a fashion rarely seen in history.
This all raises an important question: will media ever blame current economic conditions on Obama, or will they continue to point fingers at George W. Bush despite his residence being in Texas?
From a Bloomberg.com piece, March 8, 2009, entitled, "Obama Bear Market Punishes Investors as Dow Slumps".....
“It’s the Obama bear market,” said Dan Veru, who helps oversee $2.8 billion at Palisade Capital Management in Fort Lee, New Jersey. “We don’t know what the rules are in so many different areas the government is touching.”
It's not The Reverend's clairvoyance skills I'm highlighting here.....it's how utterly predictable the pathetic Villager Media has become.
The last time we saw such ridiculous performances by corporate media was during the Clinton administration. Then, like Rumpelstiltskin, these same corporate whores took an 8 year long nap....completely worn out finally from all the ridiculous frenzy they had worked themselves into over a blowjob.
These media patriots knew that with the GOP'er, G.W. Bush, at the helm, it was safe to drop their critical stance....because George represented the powerful monied interests media patriots whored for. So they slept. Why tire yourself out being critical when you're getting so many deep tax cuts? And hell....so what if he destroys the country....you'll still be rich.
Now, rested and refreshed, and right on cue, these same servicers of the powerful are back attacking and trying to delegitimize another Democratic president.
That is, when they're not telling us, in detail, all about the national security implications of Michelle Obama exposing her muscles.
It's Sunday, March 8, 2009.....and still today, the corporate main media looms as America's number one threat. The Old Soviets must be green with envy.
