    I always like to post this video when conservative pessimism roars it's ugly head!

    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.

    And always has the "but" in his hip pocket...

    Indeed, in that same interview, Obama added: “Keep in mind, when I came into office the economy had contracted by 9 percent, which is the most since the Great Depression.”

    Yup. With this month's jobs report, finally, BHO has one month with an unemployment number better than GWB's worst month.

    Energy independence within the next year does not seem the least bit feasible. It is about timing and magnitude. The ARRA was fair with respect to timing, but poor when it came to targeted magnitude.
    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.

    Ha. I wonder why?

    Why did you choose to place a time frame of one year on the target for independence? You see, what we have now is a mismatch of skills versus need in the labor market, but in ND they are begging for workers to fill openings. Energy independence would cost nothing, and yet, is a potential source of vast income to enable the institution of all the programs you might like to see...
