    Not relevant to the debate over the stimulus package. Whether you like it or not, there are still two parties in the congress and many Americans don't like having their candidates silenced and pressed out of discussion about how hundreds of billions is going to be spent.

    Personally, I care far more about results than ideology. I don't agree with all Obama's economic agenda and have stated as much in other threads, but in the end, considering the crisis we find ourselves in, and for that matter the economic crisis the rest of the world is in, I would rather his economic policies succeed than to be right about where I disagree with them on.

    I think the vast majority of Americans feel the same way.

    It may turn out that buying the toxic assets would be the cheapest way to go in the long run.

    EDIT: If only there was a way to arrive at an equitable valuation of those mortgages.

    Tell me did you want Bush to succeeds?

    Yes or no.
    Funny, I've been hearing from many in the mainstream left that they'd like to see Bush, Cheney, and many in his administration impeached, tried, and imprisoned over the past few years.

    I guess that's a little different from 'wanting Bush to fail.'

    I guess he could have been hugely more successful from behind bars!

    This is patently false; had the American people been told that this Administration would implement Universal healthcare this year, had they been told that this administration would pass $2.5 trillion in spending without a corresponding tax increase to pay for it, it is highly unlikely that an INFORMED public would have been in agreement with this agenda.

    What I saw, and am now seeing among his most adamant supporters is shock in that they thought he would lead from the center and be moderate. What we are seeing is the Obama that the Republicans attempted to define but were slapped down by a media infatuated with the destruction of Sarah Pahlin.

    It is false to suggest that Americans, if informed, want more Government and higher taxes so that they can become dependent wards of the state which will bring us mediocrity and fewer choices.

    Obama got where he is by demagogueing Capitalism and impugning the people who actually invest in the productivity of this nation. His populist message is welcomed by the ignorant masses, but those who are informed cringe and now watch as the markets react to his program by running for cover.

    When will you think Obama’s plan has served to destroy our economy; when the market hits 3,000 and businesses close up because they cannot afford the corporate taxes, carbon taxes and union wage rates that will be forced down their throats? But alas, by that time it will be too late to go back.

    You cannot tax and spend your way to prosperity; the nations who have attempted this are the remnants of South America and on the African continent. Your suggestion that we should welcome the very policies that have ruined the former Rhodesia and turn it into Zimbabwe is beyond absurd.
