    Why is it people like you never address spending and always focus on taking money from those who earn it? How did some rich person or company prevent you from joining them?


    why is it people like you use (oooh scary) big #'s like "3.9 Trillion" without putting them in context? Do you have a 35 year history of decrying that federal spending at 20% of GDP? Or, is this pseudo-outrage somehow timed magically to a convenient say... the last 6 years only?

    So you're unaware that within the margin of polling error, he is right now equal with Reagan and LBJ, better than Bush2, better than Truman, and worse than only Ike and Bill Clinton among modern Presidents?


    Also, you're unaware that popularity =/= approval?

    No, our government is prohibited from investing in the black hole that most people call the "stock market".

    Re: Obama to call for new tax increases in State of the Union address

    This man just keeps coming up with one crappier idea after the next...

    Obama and I share many goals on the economic front but it is the way he attempts to achieve them which has me unsettled.

    Unsettled to the point of opposing the end result due specifically to the means in which he attempts to get us there. (which it won't get us there, but that's a different point)

    I don't know how one man can have so many horrendous ideas.

    I suspect that he is looking for bargaining chips. He proposes some things that he claims he is going to push for, then he settles with what he really wants. That's what every good negotiator does.

    LOL. They've certainly found unique ways to get around that provision.

    Seriously though. People think the rich squirrel away their loot in some vault somewhere. They think they have mattresses stuffed with gold coins, and the economy can't get it's hands on it.
