    Come next year, we have a chance to perhaps partially rectify that. Simply cast a vote for the non-incumbent candidate. ANYONE who is currently in the Congress needs to go. Vote against any and all incumbents, irrespective of party affiliation.

    Screw it. Let's just tar and feather the assholes. At least it should provide some form of entertainment.

    No doubt. But we have to vote them out first or else there's going to be one hell of a clean up job in the Rotunda.

    This guy is just an incredible idiot. Tell ya what, we're going to get a great big lotto prize so let's go spend all the money before we know how much! So Pelosi and Reid didn't know how much? What a bunch of fools, and we have to live with them in charge. Just frightening.

    Talk about cluelessness. If Dear Leader weren't spending so damn much, he wouldn't have to borrow so damn much.

    Instead of all those Constitutional law courses he slept through at Harvard, he should have taken a basic class on how to balance a checkbook. Then he'd at least have some clue as to what the problem is.

    If Dear Leader wants to solve the problem of deficit spending, here's a simple suggestion:

    STOP SPENDING!
    Don't blame me, I didn't vote for the morons.

    By the way, where are all these millions of jobs we are supposed to be seeing? Let's see, Obama promised 5,000,000 NEW jobs and since he took office we have lost 2,000,000; that means that in order to meet his campaign promise we are now at 7,000,000 jobs needed.

    I wonder how many jobs will be created next month?

    That doesn't excuse Obama, but again a door opened means a door can be opened further.

    I don't care who started it, I care who will do the right thing and close the door. Just because Bush spent less doesn't make his failure better because Obama spent more and it doesn't make the failure of the presidents before them that did the same thing any better.

    It doesn't matter who started it, only matters who will end such idiotic spending. So far Democrats have proven themselves inadequate, and Republicans have proven themselves to be inadequate.

    So what now? Elect a Republican again who will be just as irresponsible as the last? Or a Dem the same?
    I find such uninformed bile comedic; the ONLY reason for all the spending done during Bush's Administration was primarily due to the catastrophic events of 9-11, fighting a war in Afghanistan, fighting a war in Iraq and the catastrophic events of New Orleans.

    Yet even with ALL this spending, while Republicans were in charge the deficit which was caused primarily due to the above events and had reached a mere $300 billion at its peak, was actually going down and was below $200 billion when Democrats took over in 2006. The acceleration since then has been frightening to any with a brain.

    But alas, let us not focus on the criminal irresponsibility of the Democrats; let us continue the asinine whining about George W. Bush; a man who dared to do what he said he would, a man who dared to have massive bi-partisan support in the congress and a man who dared to fight the asinine attempts of the DNC to disenfranchise the voters of Florida.

    I think this illustrates my points and the fantastically laughable hypocrisy of Obama quite well.

    Who's he giving all that advice to about not borrowing from China? I hope he was talking to the guy that watches him shave. For crying out loud, is he for real?

    That's only if you think that 2 trillion is less than 1.8 trillion. Sure it's bad, but you're still wrong that the '09 Obama deficit is more than Bush's combined deficit. And given how Bush added around $5 trillion to the debt, there's no way that Obama's $1.8 trillion is more than that.

    And the whole notion that projections actually mean anything is ridiculous. TD is correct in saying that CBO projections require suspension of disbelief to accept. Anyone who's done a financial forecast knows just how much Voodoo they are using in projecting anything more than a few years.
