    If you seriously think that two wars, that over the course of ten years cost the same roughly as ONE year of Obama failed stimulus spending, then you are really not thinking this one through.

    Repubs spent during the Bush years like they were progressive liberals, and got their ass handed to them in 06, and 08 for it. Now Obama put that spending on steroids, ramped it up some 300% on the promise that it would keep unemployment under 8%, and GDP growth at some 4%. Neither happened, yet you hear libs talking about "creating some 3.5 million jobs" with the stimulus, WHERE? I don't see it. Things are not getting better, they are at the most optimistic, stagnant.

    Get prepared libs...You are about to get booted.

    You and the late Bin Laden both supported the actions Bush and Company took after 9/11 the results of which we are now dealing with economically.

    Now the conservatives and thier buddies have declared economic class warfare on the middle class and poor of America, 2012 is coming and when the dust settles the party of no will no longer exist. Vote them all out and anyone of any political affiliation that supports them

    Problem with that idea is that conservatives blew away liberals in 2010 and had the largest seat gain in the house since the great depression. So it seems that most of America would prefer the lesser of two evils, the repubs, in charge.

    I love how people quote clinton's job gains when it was just a fallacy, a dot-com bubble that bust at the end of his presidency. I lost more money under Clinton in my investments than I ever did under Bush. Why? Because I invested at the height of the dot-com bubble and bought into it being long term when in reality it crashed harder than a 747 without wings.

    Sorry, but that class warfare begain under Democrats and continue under Democrats. You don't see Republicans attacking anyone else for what they make or pay in taxes. You don't see Republicans attacking the 47% of American income earners most of whom are 50,000 or less not paying any Federal Income Taxes. It is class warfare when someone fights hard to get those paying the most in taxes to pay more and to ignore those that aren't paying anything. Is that their fair share?

    What political hacks on the left today! Keep those poor and middle class dependent on govt. so they can keep their jobs. Amazing support for the politicians that actually created this 14.6 trillion dollar debt and the failed liberal agenda!

    I won't waste time arguing about who started it what's important is who finishes it, lavish in 2010 2012 is right around the corner attacks on SS medicare medicad and many other programs that middle class and poor americans depend on will determine results of the next election, not your insistant whining about how you are so mistreated when 20% of the nations popualtion already controls 93% of this countries wealth

    So when the govt. takes money directed towards SS, Medicare, and Medicaid and puts it on budget to spend on other programs that isn't an attack on the Middle and lower classes? Where do you get your information and please tell me this is an act?

    As was pointed out to you we had the 2010 elections which put record numbers of Republicans into state offices and legislatures. That tells a lot about the direction of the country. I am still waiting for you to explain how any rich person made someone else poorer? How did the rich hurt you or your family and why didn't you become one of those evil rich people?

    What the.....? Well I thought that by putting "Other" in the lean under your avatar would never be done by liberals trying to hide their true leanings...But then I am confused by this opening screed that you would take a stance of doing nothing after the 9/11 massacre, rather than a strong leader that didn't blame America first saying that enough is enough in that hell hole of a region of the world.

    Now the conservatives and thier buddies have declared economic class warfare on the middle class and poor of America, 2012 is coming and when the dust settles the party of no will no longer exist. Vote them all out and anyone of any political affiliation that supports them
    Whew! que up the Twilight Zone theme song....This particular statement is dimetrically, 180 degrees from the truth.

    Well, technically, the Dems did vote to go to war too.

    However on the same token, not sure why the GOP maintained the tax cut at this time, as it makes no sense to me why you'd want to reduce your potential revenue flow during wartime.
