Help me understand what the Democrats want.
They hate George Bush for many reasons, but at least economically he followed the precise policy prescription they offer: Lots of spending, lots of tax cuts. Yet these are the policies that "got us in the mess we are in," "resulted in the worst economy since the Great Depression," and "drove the car into the ditch."
And they love Obama. But at least recently (see recent comments by Krugman, Jay Carney) they say Obama has been the austerity President, following the precise policies that will lead us into another recession.
Bush did what they wanted and they hate him. Obama has done what they hate and they love him. Seriously, what do the Democrats want?
