    Yes it did. I didn't reflect my votes, I didn't vote for any Democrats to be in Congress.

    Some companies aren't credible but don't classify all with the one you are talking about although my bet is there is more to the story than you are telling. If your attitude is as you are preventing here you are going to have a hard time selling yourself to any company. Class warfare has no place in the business world. I have no problem with what anyone else makes. There is only one ideology that does, liberalism.

    Military spending IS the role of the Federal govt. not social engineering. The budget of the U.S. is 3.7 trillion dollars and the military budget is 700 billion of it. You call that excessive? What are your thoughts on the rest of the 3 trillion dollar budget?

    None, but Bush did have 9/11, two wars, and Hurricane Katrina. 9/11 cost this country over a trillion dollars of the debt acccording to the GAO. Bush still spent too much with the help of Congress but that doesn't justify what Obama has done in 2 plus years. Bush had a GOP Congress from 2003-2006. Democrats have controlled Congress from 2007-2011

    it's all air

    what, for example, do you think HARRY REID is gonna do with the puffs, inflate a balloon?

    americans want SOLUTIONS, not SPEECHES

    and until harry sets his pen to paper...

    we know you did not review his speech. he was quite explicit in his approach to achieve $4 Trillion in savings over 12 years
