    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Already the Republicans are ahead of the Democrats, at least they did their job and proposed a budget on time for the next fiscal year

    We aren't in recession now according to economic growth and yet few jobs are being created and stagnant economic growth. When will you hold Obama accountable for these poor results? He said he had the answer if elected and now we know that was another Obama lie. He is nothing more than a tax and spend liberal.

No President creates any deficits without Congressional approval. This budget is something that has been long overdue and will provide Obama with his liberal talking points on his candidacy. We shall see which direction the country wants to go.
    'Technically', the three branches are generally referred to as the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.

    How did Obama vote on the legislation? He had a choice to spend the 350 billion left him by Bush



    Where did the repayment of TARP go? Most of TARP has been paid back, where is the credit to the Treasury?



    I am simply pointing out that Wall Street supported Obama more than McCain as the Campaign Finance Commission will show and that is contrary to the view here by many who claim that Wall Street supports only Republicans.

    I am really worried about your reading comprehension. You are proving to be a typical Obama supporter
    First off, my reading comprehension level is very good, thank you. But of course, any time you're losing an argument your fall-back seems to be personal attacks. It's part of your "deflection" MO....PREDICATABLE! Regardless, you said:

    Economists claim that TARP bailed us out and TARP was Bush's. I didn't support TARP but Bush signed it and Obama supported it.
    Thus, it would seem YOU'RE the one with the reading comprehension problem because you made two accusations in one statement, i.e., "Economists 'claim' that TARP bailed us out"...AND..."TARP was Bush's".

    Who has the reading comprehension problem now? But I digress...

    It's not a claim that Bush initiated TARP. IT IS FACT!

    As far as where the repaid TARP funds went, I can't answer that one for directly, but perhaps the answer(s) you seek can be found on any of these three websites:

    Tracking the TARP - Old data, but a good starting point that outlines how TARP funds were prioritized.

    What You Haven't Heard About TARP - provides detailed and the most up-to-date information on TARP directly from the Treasury Department.

    U.S. Office of the SIGTARP : Reports - The government's official TARP website which provides numerous reports concerning TARP, including quarterly reports submitted to Congress (last report, Jan 2011).

    That's all I got for now. Happy reading!

    With all due respect I think you are nuts and still have a reading comprehension problem, I have stated that TARP was Bush's and I also stated and rightly so that economists claim that TARP kept us out of a depression. What part of both of those don't you understand? What a crazy argument here! Name for me what Obama did to bring us back from the brink of a depression as he claims?

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    Wonder how many Obama supporters will be attending rallies around the country for Obama carrying signs that read:

    Vindicating Guantanamo

    Eric Holder adopts the Bush anti-terror architecture

    Obama is rope-a-doping the left.
