    If Obama gets re-elected, at least he can continue his mantra of inheriting the worst economy ever.

    The only thing the guy has proposed in the last two years is tax increases on the rich and more stimulus (payoffs to union road crews and teachers unions). Neither is going to do anything but harm the economy, so it is good that he hasnt gotten what he wanted.

    In a way I hope he does get re-elected so that he can be in office when the crapstorm he has created hits the fan. He has shown no interest in tackling the major issues confronting the nation, and the next president will have to. As bad as his first 4 years have been, another 4 would be worse.

    Well ... no. A leader is one who can inspire people and convince them to follow him. Obama's got no inspiration and no credibility.

    It also helps if the leader can promote a policy that might actually work.

    When Republicans have as their number one goal defeating the president -- as opposed to helping the country -- there is little chance that he will be able to inspire them to follow his lead. The only hope then is that the people will wake the **** up and elect legislators who put country ahead of politics.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Huh??? Was that not the Democrats number one goal in 2008? Not the defeating the president part, because their was no incumbent candidate, but the getting their presidential candidate elected part.

    No, that was not the Democrats' number one goal. The Democrats were more interested in doing the job they were elected to do. Thus, unlike Republicans, they supported Bush's top domestic priority (immigration reform) and they supported TARP to avoid a total collapse of the financial system ... even though a total collapse probably would have benefited Obama in the election.

    I do believe that you're delusional, as evidenced by the first two sentences of your quote.

    ... he said, conveniently failing to address the concluding sentence.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it.
