    You mean the ones that won't even begin until 2014? Please. And no they weren't "more" by any partisan hack interpretation.

    I did not know that the republican running for president, Bachmann, ran an obscure Left Wing blog. Will wonders ever cease?

    Too bad
    It would be more constructive to discuss the problem of the moment and what the American people can do about it.

    They can continue to borrow and spend but soon the result will be the Germany mark of the early 1920's.


    You can try to get 'the rich' to pay for unsustainable social programs, but they'll either leave or eventually run out of money.

    You can cut government spending, such as poetry contests for cowboys, and try to pay off the debts.

    Some hard decisions are going to have to be made and Barrack Obama is clearly not the person to make them. He's wildly out of his depth.

    It demonstrates just how phony the big right wing build up to this was with telling us that the national debt was the biggest problem we had to face as a nation. The President calls their bluff and all of the sudden its not the debt anymore - its just spending that is the problem.

    freaking hypocrites in empty suits drooling and spitting up on themselves would be too good of a characterization of their 'leaders' like Can't..er.
