    Obama took a bad situation, made it 10 times worse, and now he's talking about what a horrible situation we're in, and we need to stop doing the things HE did to help get us where we are? The man is in some serious denial

    Agree. The monopoly of the federal reserve has to be contained before any of this will go away.

    What is the right agreeing with and who are you defining as "the right"?
    Thank you

    You're being disingenuous.

    Or have you forgotten that Dear Leader's spending is the problem of which he so fecklessly speaks?

    Or do you wish to ignore the trillions upon trillions of debt his agenda calls for?

    His budget agenda would conservatively add $9.3 trillion over ten years to the debt he calls unsustainable. At the rate his current administration is adding to the public debt, he will add that amount in a single term of office.

    I do not attack Dear Leader for saying the debt is unsustainable. I attack Dear Leader for his unsustainable debt.

    It's irresponsible either way. But the sheer scale of Obama's version of it, compared to Bush's, could choke a rhino.

    Frankly, the best thing now would be for the tea party movement to evolve into a full-fledged anti-incumbency movement.

    Vote out all 535 Congressmen and Senators.

    Vote out Dear Leader.

    Vote in candidates willing to, among other things, back term limits for Congress, a requirement the budget be balanced EVERY year, with a proviso that deficit budgets must be approved by a supermajority of 75% of both Houses of Congress.

    Vote in candidates that are willing to confront the sobering fiscal realities of the entitlement monstrosity that Congress has given us--compassion for one's neighbor is all well and good, but it doesn't amount to a hill of beans when there's no money to pay the bills.

    Vote in candidates that are willing to commit to a serious foreign policy, one which does not politicize international crises to curry votes in the home district.

    And if the candidates so voted in fail to deliver the goods, vote them out in two years and vote in new ones until we get a crop that will deliver.
