    I like how you "hate" the poll because they only asked 1013 people. However, Catawba posts a link to an older poll that sampled 1,001 people and all of a sudden you "like" it. I can't for the life of me figure out why you would like one but not the other.

    Re: Americans Favor GOP on Budget: Poll

    the president doesn't have a plan

    and the president will never have a plan

    he can never write his rhetoric into ITEMIZED form

    which is why it is SEVEN HUNDRED DAYS since the united states senate PRINTED a budget

    egregiously inexcusabile

    y'know, IN TIMES LIKE THESE

    if immediate action is not taken to fundamentally restructure our budget then our big 3 federal social programs will cease to exist in their present form

    meanwhile, observant americans see that all barack the slasher's got is a great speech, an excellent speech

    which he aint even saying THAT anymore

    when's the last time he said, tax the rich, when's the last time he said, 500 billion in medicare savings?

    when do you expect him to hammer that stump next?

    don't hold your breath

    stay up

    Re: Americans Favor GOP on Budget: Poll

    In reading this thread, I am not surprised to see the partisan hackery on both sides of the aisle here. The way I see it, GOP batcrap crazy isn't any better that Dem batcrap crazy. But our nation will continue to bathe in batcrap crazy until they realize that the GOP-Democrat paradigm is to divide and conquer the American people. Until a valid third party comes along that truly represents the interests of the American people, the debate between batcrap crazy and batcrap crazy will continue.

    FWIW:

    Service of the federal debt as a percentage of GDP in 1990 was 4.6%. Service of the federal debt as a percentage of GDP in 2010 (20 years later) is 2.7%.

    This is the historic low for the U.S.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    i'm sorry, folks, i don't mean to belittle

    it's that it's such a LOSING campaign

    and it IS pretty accurately the lay of the land

    I did not say it was a winning campaign.... I agree, its actually a loser as a campaign as the truth often is. Obama has two things going for him in 2012: 1) no one to run against him and 2) an even more untenable platform of let's screw the middle class and cut taxes on the rich even more....

    Is this supposed to mean something. The Fed is buying up Fed debt at a record rate and has kept interest rates at historic lows.

    Another way to look at it is that our deficit is running about $1.6 trillion, if interest rates were close to normal the deficit would be about $2 trillion.

    Re: Americans Favor GOP on Budget: Poll

    which is precisely how service on the debt, mere interest alone, is fast approaching a full trillion dollars per year

    because interest rates must someday return to normal

    excellent! so you're saying that we are actually in the best period of our history to go ahead and decide not to raise the debt ceiling
