He did graduate MCL from HLS though. whether the grading was "blind" is a major question though. Then again Mitt Romney was 1st in his college class (he was top of his class at Stanford as well, but married during his mission and then transferred to BYU) and was top of his class at the Harvard B school as well as graduating from Honors from HLS.

    If academic achievement was the issue in 2008, Romney had no peers.

    If the government would figure out that government can't create wealth and get out of the way of the private sector, then we can pay this new porkulus package.

    I don't worry about corporations. If I don't like one I don't do business with it which is not true with the government. Corporations don't kill have a record of killing people. Ask Randy Weaver if that is true about the government or that poor guy in NYC that was shot 41 times reaching for his wallet.

    Big corporations normally have competition. BIg government does not. Big Government has killed millions of people in the last century. Sorry, given a choice I prefer big corporations over a socialist or fascist government.

    as to stupid comments, Doctor heal thyself

    No, it does not.

    Does the nation need repairs o existing infrastructure?

    Yes, it does.

    Does the federal government already collect taxes putatively to maintain that infrastructure?

    Yes, it's a part of the tax Americans and others pay at the pump.

    How about if the government stop spending that money on wasteful projects and start spending it on what it was meant for, instead of pretending new uncovered spending is necessary to suddenly recover from the goverment's neglect?

    Since repairs to existing roads will have completely zero effect on the commerce along those roads, the nation will gain nothing from this expenditure. Therefore, this spending should be balanced by spending cuts in other areas the government also has no business funding.

In my simple understanding of economic increasing govt spending during a recession maintains output, preventing a worse outcome. Seriously you ARE blaming Obama in his 2 years for not being able to completely put of a disaster from the previous administration that he's inherited.
    Obviously, you have zero economic understanding. With the porkulus packages, we still lost $293,000 more jobs. It doesn't take a super educated economist to figure out that Obama's plan hasn't worked.

    If we spent a penny, it was 7000 lives too many.

    libs cannot buy votes by doing what you say

    they can buy the votes of the envious by telling those people that the dems will raise taxes on others to make the losers feel better about not being successful or not having the ambition to try to become wealthy

    Yeah, all someone has to do is explain why the Rapist President campaigned on "infrastructure", and yet suddenly it's "Bush's Fault" all over again.
