    Watch.

    Reports of it's demise are greatly exaggerated.
    This might surprise you, but I hope you are right. I think having two parties(at least) is a good thing, and I believe the republican and democrats have one big thing in common...we both want to make the country better.

    Your right, 9/11. I think it, 9/11, is impossible to 9/11 not mention 9/11.

    So, it's a 1.8 trillion dollar debt. And you're blowing it off. then you're excusing what took the Messiah less than 60 days to create with what took his predecessor eight years to create, and who had two wars to fight as well.

    Good job, Don't wipe the brown spot off your nose, many of your friends think of it as a badge of honor.

    Did you happen to notice that when banks are saying they want to repay the money back, the government is saying "hold on there now, let's not be hasty. Right now we own you, and we like it that way." You missed that?

    Here is what gets me the most about the whole $1.8trillion argument. Most of the budget is unchanged, and some things are cut. But Lord Cheney and Darth Bush ran the economy so far into the ground and so many jobs were lost, and soooo much revenue has been lost that to keep the government afloat we now have to run the $1.8 trillion, it is an inflated number. Nice job trying to make it look like it is new and outta the blue!!!!

    If he continues a spending spree for the remainder of his Presidency, then I will jump on board with you.

    When did that conclusion get discarded, since it's been clear that for the last half-century, at least, since the McGovern campaign, that the Democrats have absolutely zero desire to make the country better in ways that an honest American could consider being better.

    The left is always after more taxes more gun control more taxes more socialist medicine more taxes more foreign policy apologies more taxes more foreign aid to people that hate us more taxes more welfare to the useless more taxes more handouts to the useless more taxes funding for bad art more taxes more money to teachers unions that don't teach more taxes more dead babies more taxes more apologies more taxes more reparations for slavery more taxes more gun control more taxes more dead babies more taxes more government commissions more taxes more regulations more taxes less energy independence more taxes less freedom more taxes more taxes and finally, more taxes.

    I probably missed one or two of the things you peole think will make more taxes the country more taxes better, but probably nothing more taxes important.


    Any you know, I'd actually agree with all that, if I'd been typing more texas instead of more taxes.

    Nothing's cut except incredibly minor issues or national defense.

    I don't have any reason to believe your last sentence contains any resemblance to a truthful statement.

    Now, now my angry friend. I have already criticized Obama on several issues, mainly on his bailouts.

    Since FDR was incompetent like no president in the Twentieth Century was, and since Obama is incompetent like few people ever are, can we now expect, that like FDR, your Messiah will take a limping economy and shoot it in both knees to make the recession into a Depression?
