    I agree with you post. While it seems a bit like Armageddon, I think the attitude of many that "We are America", we can do what we want and everything will be dreamy is assine. We have a problem, many people predicted the problem and were ignored. Many of the same people are saying that throwing billions of dollars at the problem is going to make it worse. They are being ignored. If you think that things are bad now wait until the foreign companies start pulling out of the US because people can't afford to buy what they are selling.
    From the ashes.

    Short term deficit spending in the midst of a contraction makes arguable sense. I disagree with Obama that it should require huge deficits for years to come.
    I get a kick out of how the pass the buck poster is now all in favor of passing the buck.

    Others think it is ok to pass the buck when at war. You think it is ok in a contraction But the fact is you are both passing the buck based on what you think is right.

    And as I argued long ago, only one candidate running for office was sure to not pass the buck, so your rhetoric really was just hot air as I thought all along.

    I think you have me confused with someone else.

    Which candidate was that? Realistic one I mean.

    no, you are definitely the poster that likes to rag on the pass the buck generation.

    I'm not sure if posting the search works or not, but a search on your username with pass the buck, brings a ton of hits.

    And your intellectual dishonesty aside, we both know which candidate I speak of.

    Re: Obama warns about years of trillion-dollar deficits

    This week Obama has promised to Lower Taxes and Raise spending!


    Keep in mind he intends to let tax cuts expire..so at best you will get a cut of the increase.

    His spending cannot be even contemplated without tax increases with no decreases.


    ..and no your not going to rob corporations or steal money form the "rich"...thats simpleton claptrap.
    No running away like cowards on Iraq will not do it either..your sending them to Afghanistan and we are not going to demobilize the US military.


    Make it simple he's full of BS and the form of US politics is so established and prior to any of us even being born that its pathetic what he is pulling is bought by anyone over 10.


    Nothing new. All politicians stretch the truth.

    Problem with Obama is he doesn't stretch he outright breaks it and then tells you all how dumb you are in a speech for realizing it.

    "I never noticed"



    When you look at his comments and stances on the War its clear Obama is operating form a platform of idealistic egomania and not reality.

    I fear total collapse and civil war in the US more than I ever have.

    Don't worry about us, we can handle ourselves. There have been proclamations of doom before, the most they amount to is recession and once, depression. As you can see we've survived them all. I'm sure we'll find some way to get out of this one without "total collapse and civil war".

    Oh yes, I have been a vocal critic about deficits for a long time; long before it because popular for conservatives to do so after Dems were elected.

    You confused me with someone who thinks its OK to "pass the buck". That would more fit those who were willing to let the US go trillions into debt under the Bush administration for the sake of their tax cuts.

    And your intellectual dishonesty aside, we both know which candidate I speak of.
    LOL!

    I didn't confuse you, I took your words - you said in a contraction it is ok to do deficit spending, which is passing the buck.
