    Pb, you have such low standards when it comes to another liberal, looks like the majority of the public has the same problem as I have with Obama

    Well like the majority of those polled, I believe today's economic problems are a result of Bush's policies.

    Do you disagree with this?

    More recently, Mitchell Zuckoff, a Boston University journalism professor who has written a book on Ponzi, noted critical dissimilarities between Social Security and a Ponzi scheme, which by definition is both fraudulent and unsustainable.

    "First, in the case of Social Security, no one is being misled," Zuckoff's January 2009 article in Fortune magazine says. "...Social Security is exactly what it claims to be: A mandatory transfer payment system under which current workers are taxed on their incomes to pay benefits, with no promises of huge returns."

    Second, he writes, "A Ponzi scheme is unsustainable because the number of potential investors is eventually exhausted. That's when the last people to participate are out of luck; the music stops and there's nowhere to sit. It's true that Social Security faces a huge burden and a significant, long-term financing problem in light of retiring Baby Boomers...But Social Security can be, and has been, tweaked and modified to reflect changes in the size of the taxpaying workforce and the number of beneficiaries. It would take great political will, but the government could change benefit formulas or take other steps, like increasing taxes, to keep the system from failing."

    Conservative, did you miss this post or have you decided just to ignore it?

    So, you still worship S&P's downgrade of U.S. Treasury bonds?

    Guess that is why Obama's poll numbers are so low, right? Doesn't look like it is the case. It is going to be tough when you finally realize what a fool Obama and liberalism has made out of you. I remember it well when the light went off in my head.

    Why would I worship that? Liberals seem to not understand the harm Obama is doing to the economy. I find it interesting that someone your age still doesn't get it, the govt. created this debt that we have and the debt that led to the downgrade yet double down, no problem!

    Strip out the invective, strip out the rhetoric, and all that remains of your post is a link to an unscientific online poll.

    I seem to remember the economy went in to the toilet when a conservative president who believes hands off business. Not a liberal one.

    In your boilerplate talking points you mentioned the downgrade, did you not? The debt wasn't the problem, it was the conservatives/Tea Party holding the debt ceiling hostage.
