    its the spending where he was deficient and much of that spending can be tied to the destruction of the tenth amendment engineered by FDR
    That's a joke.
    Had Greenspan and Bush not used the housing sector to get us out of the light recession of 2001 we would not be in this mess.

    It has nothing to do with the New Deal which many believed was actually fiscally conservative.

    Taxes too high? How about balancing the budget? Cutting taxes and then engaging in a costly and unnecessary war just leads to disaster and Here we are.

    1. no kidding

    2. except 2020 is not so far out

    3. and you can't completely separate em, the worry, uncertainty and doubt clouding americans' perceptions of the out years affects their thinking, choices and actions today

    The U.S. cannot grow its way out of its structural budget deficits. Discretionary spending reductions, mandatory spending reform (with fundamental health care reform that addresses the excessive cost growth issue), and some tax hikes will all be necessary if the U.S. is to address its fiscal challenges. The sooner a credible fiscal consolidation strategy is developed, the better. Once the recovery is sustained, the nation should begin to implement a fiscal consolidation strategy. 2011 might mark a feasible starting point (LOL!). By all reasonable measures, the absence of such a strategy within the next year should warrant the U.S. being given a negative outlook by the major ratings agencies.

    Unfortunately, I expect ideologues to try to hinder progress even if their rigidity is largely about perpetuating a failing fiscal approach at the expense of future opportunities and generations. On one side, some political leaders will resist the possibility of meaningful spending reductions (discretionary and mandatory). On the other, some political leaders will resist the possibility of tax hikes. Yet, the magnitude of the fiscal challenges is such that there can be no sacred ideological cows. Tough choices will need to be made if the transition to fiscal sustainability is to be relatively smooth and the nation is to avert a long-term debt crisis.
    extremely long-winded, eggheaded and boring way to say 2 + 2 = 4

    but thanks, anyway, i guess

    And if he does end up fixing it, will you give him the credit he deserves?

    You're the one who said he can't fix it. So answer the question.

    you scooped me!

    $3.54 in chicago

    fears of $4 a gallon gas on the horizon

    trouble, trouble everywhere

    foreclosures up 60% this year over dust-bowl like 09

    an extra billion dollars for big companies just to stay in biz, not a single new hire

    interest on the debt to approach a tril per year in 2017, or thereabouts

    foreigners dumping our debt in record numbers

    our biggest and most expensive states bankrupt by tens of bils

    commercial real estate starting to corrode

    new unemployment claims rose by 5% last week

    and now we're looking at $4 a gallon gas

    gas hikes are inflationary like crabgrass---everything america buys, just about, is delivered via truck

    sure, certainly, indeed---2011 would be just an ideal time to initiate our new fiscal consolidation strategy

    LOL!

    Gas prices always go up in the spring. These prices aren't out of the ordinary yet. And Obama doesn't set gas prices. Blame the milllions of idiots who depend on driving too much and drive fatass 14 MPG SUVs.
