First zinger: Trickle down government!

It is newspeak, twisting TDE against Dems.

Very Orwellian.

1. Government spending is required to get an economy out of a deep recession.

If that is called TDE then so be it.

3. that was just weird

and then Lehrer asked Obama to respond to it

What I wanted Obama to say:

"Look. My opponent came in here tonight prepared to pretend that I am George Bush, that I presided over the 2007 economic meltdown, that I didn't kill bin Laden, that my policies are the failed ones of Bush that got us into this mess and not the policies that are getting us out of this mess. So let me be clear: Trickle down economics are THEIR policies and they don't work. They don't create jobs, they don't increase private spending.

The GOP is like a teenager that brings dad's car back with no gas in the tank -- they did it in 1992 and they did it in 2008. But in 2008 the car wasn't just out of gas, it was wrecked on the side of the road. Now that "Dad" (motion to himself) has patched it up and put some gas in the tank they want the keys again. In the words of a former First Lady: Just say no."
