    Sorry, Con, but you can't project your shortcomings onto me.

    You were the one complaining that Obama's FY2010 budget was too much higher than Bush's and after the reason for why it was higher was pointed out to you, you were the one to move the goal posts in a failed attempt to make the discussion about spending, not budget proposals.

    This is why your self-serving delusion that you "beat up" on us Liberals is so funny. You're playing three card monty and you think you're winning at poker.

    Republican Bob Turner holds a six-point lead in next week's special election to replace disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., according to a new Siena College poll released early Friday that shows voters in the overwhelmingly Democratic district are poised to deliver a stinging rebuke to President Obama and his party.

    I have no desire to argue the fact that the (R) is simply a (D) with an (R) after his name or that Turner may not even win but if Obama wasn't a drag, we would never have articles like this.

    Hmmm...looks like a good spot for my new invention.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Doesn't really matter, the Obama record is on the ballot in 2012 and it is that record with his arrogance that will lead to a one termer

    I am not sure I would call it rebuke of the President his party, candidates have to earn the vote, they can't just assume. This what happened with the election to fill Kennedy's seat in the Senate. The Democratic candidate ran a piss poor campaign.

    When do you think Obama will ever stop campaigning and actually act like a leader. Effective leaders don't dictate and that is all Obama ever does along with blaming everyone else for his own failures. How about that Jobs Speech last night. Didn't you just get a warm tingling up your leg?

    Are you willing to admit you were wrong about SS being a Ponzi scheme?



    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."
