OK post when you think the US will enter the next Depression.

We all know Obama is going to take us in the wrong direction; everything has gone to hell in a handbasket since he was nominated. (Job losses, stock market, consumer confidence, etc etc etc.)

What is your prediction for the month and year we officially sink into economic Depression?

  • While I don't care for Obama we can't blame him for everything shoot he has only been president for what like a week, but to answer your question, truthfully I think it will be in the next 6 months or so

  • Yada Yada Yada
    You must have been polishing up on your mud slinging skills, impressive.
    This is not all Obamas fault, you need to do some research dear and get your facts straight.

    I would put my pennies in for Mid June.

  • LOL Anon 1:52. You admit that there won't be enough "change" to prevent a depression? Hello!

    You do realize we had six YEARS of explosive economic expansion on Bush's watch DESPITE 9/11 and only after the Democrats took control of Congress did things get bad.

    You also realize that the media's constant mantra of "worst economy ever" became a self fulfilling prophecy and that the policies that led to the collapse were engineered by Democrats, right?

    Just checkin'! The foxes are definitely in charge of the henhouse now. Things are going to get really, really bad!

  • If you look at things, the US is already experiencing two economic phenomenons. Primarily we are in a recession. The middle and upper classes that is. But if you look at th poor, not only do they suffer from this recession, but they also are suffering from a depression. I know that sounds odd, and almost impossble, but looking at it, thats what I see. Oh and by the way...don't go around blaming Obama. Obviously the republicans ideas on the economy weren't working....they wanted to continue on Bush's plan. Its almost insane to repeat the same action over and over and expect differnt resutls. If, in four years, we're worse? Fine say "i told you so." and I'll be with you at the polls voting a new guy in.

  • I suppose if McCain/Palin were nominated the economy would be BOOMING! This has nothing to do do with the nominees, it has to do with Bush's War. I agree with Gigi1969 when she says everyones in a huddle lol Superbowl!!!!!!!!!!. I even think that if anything happens like another 9/11 people will blame Obama but when 9/11/01 happened they blamed Clinton.
