    I would turn this specious argument around and suggest that the Obama Administration wants America to fail. Why you ask; (1) the negative rhetoric of how bad things are in order to promote a major aggressive Government takeover of major segments of the Nations economy; (2) there passing of trillions of dollars without any debate about how to pay for it; (3) the false rhetoric that Government spending the nation in deep debt that will take decades to pay down is somehow a "stimulus" to the economy; (4) passing Carbon tax based credits which will serve to destroy industry in this country based on arbitrary Government standards.

    I keep here Liberals and Democrats argue "but what if it succeeds?" Unfortunately, the historic record suggests that Governments that spend vast amounts of money they don't have turns their nationís economies into third world like failures.

    The question should be; "what do we do if it fails?" The risk far exceeds any analysis of success and this kind of reckless spending will more likely lead to failure. So what do we do after we spent $180 billion on AIG, $100 billion on GM and Chrysler, trillions on Government make work projects and when it is all done, these companies still file Chapter 7? What do we do when we print money to pay for the largess and inflation rages out of control? What do we do when we chase capital from our shores with this misguided populism?

    What do we do when the stock market hits 5,000 and shows no signs of turning around? What do we do with a $2.5 trillion deficit and $15 trillion debt? The interest alone on our debt will be about $650 to one trillion dollars.

    This reckless effort to spend this nation into a hole so deep that if we taxed every person 100% who makes more than $75,000 per year it would not pay for the amount of spending in these bills is almost criminal.

    Look. If Bush's privatization of Social Security failed, which it did, then the worse case scenario was that Social Security would continue to be a public sector program.

    In contrast, if Obama's stimulus and upcoming bank bailout fails, then as a country we risk sliding into a depression. So hoping that Obama fails when we are in a crisis like we are in, is essentially hoping America fails. So for your own well being, you had better hope that his economic agenda works.

    We are debating the subjective here. Popularity and public approval are certainly valid arguments when one is debating who better represents Americans as a whole. Obama right now represents the mainstream and Limbaugh the extreme right.

    Odd. I haven't see anything subjective argued.
