    It won't go on very long at all if you use actual quotes.

    I take it you have no similar quotes about George Bush nor any statements from him that would promote class warfare.

    Seems to me if nations around the world were buying as many American products as Americans were buying foreign products, it would be a horse a piece and we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    This guy had no substantial experience whatsoever and, like every politician before and since, ran on the cliched hope and change.

    Now the American people are paying for it.

    You are simply looking for excuses on why anyone would vote for a person with no real experience whatsoever. Geraldine Ferraro was right.

    I think he'll have more experience next term.

    Ge who made 15 billion in profits and paid NO TAXS...so much for tax cuts create jobs....like I said...they create jobs in CHINA....
    This is the best example that we have lost our way. China is not playing the same game we are. They want to win and take all of the winnings with them.

    I wouldn't consider that the race card... maybe a bad joke, but it's not like he got up in front of the people and played a victim of racism, even though he could have. There was racism coming out in America because he was running, and the only time he came out and directly talked about his race and racism, was because he had to after the Wright scandal and that was Fox News's doing of course. I do think that that network didn't want him to win, and they did accuse him of being racist, so it would make people feel uncomfortable about him. Beck eventually lost his job because of his extreme statements... The network also had to apologize for making comments like "terrorist fist jab" and "baby's momma."

    As for GWB he said the constitution was just a piece of paper, yet the right says Obama hates the constitution. As I said, the country is divided. A new president isn't going to fix it.

    A lot of first presidents had no experience, but they still managed to create the foundation of a country that lasted. And who are you to say we are paying the price? This nations government is dysfunctional as hell, we would have paid if we elected McCain/Palin being they are both a neocons like GWB and once supported invading Iran. As I said before, we're a sovereign country and that's up for us to decide what's best for us.

    My point is that Wal-Mart's impact is not a negative. Although it contributes to the trade deficit, a focus strictly on its trade balance impact is overly narrower. A more complete analysis cannot ignore the savings it provides consumers on account of leveraging its global reach. Were there no Wal-Mart, consumer welfare would be harmed on account of higher prices. If American suppliers wish to do business with Wal-Mart, they need to offer their goods at prices that are world-competitive, and some do. Otherwise, Wal-Mart's business model would be compromised.
