    My nephew served in the rangers in the main offensive over there, Lots of action. Back in Afghanistan in the SF. He says the same thing

    I wonder if our tax hiking friend supported the dem war on poverty that spent trillions and created more dem voters but didn't get rid of poverty at all. Indeed, getting rid of poverty would be a death knell for the dem party

    BDBoop;1058967583]Yup. He knew he was inheriting a mess, and he still ran and got elected, and makes every effort to keep his campaign promises.
    Tell me exactly what the taxpayer was paying his salary for if he didn't know the mess he was inheriting and what part did he play in creating it? He wanted the job, you are right about that, but has made it worse unless you think rising unemployment, 3 trillion in debt, and declining GDP growth is a good thing.

    I think it is probably easier before one takes office, to make said promises. Once you get in and find out all the parameters and roadblocks and games that go on - yeah. Good times.
    Yes, Obama said what you wanted to hear. He was totally unqualified for the office and that inexperience is showing now.

    I don't envy him.

    Then why did you vote for him?

    My thanks to your nephew, I had a nephew in the Marines, another that was in Army Intelligence, and another in the Air Force. The Marine saw some major action, the one in Army intelligence will tell you the story the media never will on the information that they found in Saddam's palaces.

    My bet is that yes spending in the name of compassion justifies any tax increase even though it never solves an actual problem but it does give political power.

    Politicians. It would be nice if the left ran as the people they are. This is why I respect Kucinich... he's honest about who he is and what he would like to do. He's your typical Democrat with a twist of looney tunes, but I respect him fo his honesty. He's really a lot like Obama without the thuggery, and I don't know if he's a whiner.

    As for corrupt politicians; throw them out or vote them out. I support term limits.

    Phew man... you really do got a hate on for da money people.
    Think of it this way. It's not your business how much someone makes. So why get excited over it?

    .
    Hell no, but the govt should be willing to prosecute when a shyster gets caught. A poor dude with a saturday night special robs a store of a few hundred bucks and gets 15 years, a smart dude with a degree in business uses his brains to steal a few dollars each from millions of "clients" and he gets applauded.....
    According to the news, many small investors are leaving wall street, why do you think that is happening?
    Da money people, that's rich. Crime syndicates are amateurs compared to the financial district....

    I served in Vietnam. One thing I did not understand, why were there so many young men in civilian clothes in Saigon riding up and down the streets on their nifty thrifty honda fifties, many with girls riding on back? Why weren't THEY fighting that war? We took out Saddam, why are we still there? Freeing 25 million? I guess gratitude is a foreign idea to them....

    SE102;1058967590]Obama Raised the deficit ...yes... to prevent a major depression and the bailout should've ben larger and who the hell knows, that may be the reason why its not working.
    Just as I thought, you haven't a clue, the bank bailout was created and signed by Bush in October 2008. Obama voted for that bailout and spent 350 billion of the 700 bill that Bush left him. Most of that money has been paid back, so where did the money got? Was this a relative of yours.

    YouTube - Obama Stash

    Second, many countries have higher debt to GDP ratios and have stable economies
    Yes, but not if this spending continues. Debt to GDP will be 100% in the not too distant future all because of Obama spending. Where do you get your information that their economies are stable? Both Germany and France are abandoning Obama style economic model.

    Third, whats a viable alternative to a bailout? Liquidate the government and plunge the nation into anarchy?
    You really are young, the economy would have fixed itself. Bush was wrong with TARP and Obama is wrong in his economic policies. Name for me one prediction he has made that has been true?

    Also, the economic crash was not obamas fault. Unless you can cite some research that directly enumerates what actions he took before he became president caused it. As far as I can remember they withheld the information that pointed to a major recession during the election to not sway the voters. [edit]
    Didn't say he caused it but did say he had nothing to do with the creation of TARP. All he did was take credit for the results. Your time line is really screwed up and you have a short term memory, we knew about the banks in October which was prior to the elections. Half of TARP was spent by Bush and the other half by Obama. The money has been mostly paid back. where did the payback go?

    At least Obama burns money on the economy and not on crusades for legacy and empire.
    So as long as he spends money on the economy that is all that matters? He has added 3 trillion to the debt, there are 16 million unemployed, economic growth is declining again but that is ok in your world because he is spending money on the economy? Wow, you vote?

    Why are we still there? Looked at a map lately? Where is Iran? Now I am sure a nuclear Iran is no threat, right?

    compassion is the facade the left elites use to grab wealth and power without doing anything valuable or useful
