When Economic Forecasts Go Horribly, Horribly Wrong

In 2008 when President Obama assembled his economic team to help deal with the growing financial crisis, even their worst nightmare scenario woefully underestimated the depth of the economic collapse. Their failure is now our failure.

Republican Thugs Part 9 – Michael Moore Edition

In yet another version of our continuous Republican Thug series, comes probably the most disturbing one yet.
