Yes, they would have went keynesian. Thats a good thing. Keynesian economics has actually been proven to work. Demand side has never worked. Its a failed economic strategy.
There are many reasons why politicians continue to use demand side though. One of them being, it buys votes.

Listen for any of you to get on a website and down talk our very own president is disgraceful. Me personally was never a big fan of bush but he was still our president at that time so I had the upmost respect for him. As far as the comment on Steve Jobs that's an opinion and as americans we all have the right to that. Why not tax the higher class more. Really how many of us make more then 250,000 anyway. It would make more sense considering that being that its a larger number, that's a higher gross amount of taxes from one person that is way better off anyways then say someone that makes 40,000 a year or even 60,000 a year. If I'm making 250,000 a year, paying taxes wouldn't make me or brake me. Give respect to your president because we the people voted for him in the first place. He came in with the economy a mess and at his attempts to fix it this is what we are left with, but don't change takes time so what more can we do but wait.

Mr. President said, "That should be what we're focused on. How are we creating opportunity for everybody?"
And he mentions a guy that when presented an opportunity to help others through philanthropy, he refused? Yea fine, he helped bring back a flailing company, but more than that, he has an opportunity to give back to people and chose NOT to.
The President should have mentioned Mark Zuckerburg! Another regular guy, that is practically connecting the world and when asked to join the Billionaire Group headed by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett for Philanthropy, he said, "Yes".
