    The GOP has their head up their ass.

    They're too busy kissing billionaire butt to realize they're pissing away their majority control.

    2012 will be the biggest re-transfer of power in history.

    Buh-bye teabaggers...

    Wrong. In 2009, the budget was a republican one that was passed in 2008. And 2010 included TARP spending, passed with republican votes in Congress and signed by a republican president.

    The nation's chronic trade imbalance is explained by two major factors:

    1. Relative competitiveness disparities (a complex issue that is not wholly a matter of public policy, though public policy has an impact), namely in some sectors the U.S. is not the world's most competitive country.
    2. Dependency on petroleum imports (the continuing absence of a credible energy policy has contributed greatly). In the January-May 2011 timeframe, the trade gap in petroleum products accounted for 45% of the nation's overall trade gap.

    stupidly attempted to put the one group of people who didn't even have the ability to effect what passed in responsibility?
