    Uh, no, the TARP bailout was in 2009 and only 350 billion spent by Bush most of which has been repaid. Democrats Controlled Congress in 2007 and 2008 so suggest you redo your math and for a change get the facts straight.

    And we still aren't up to what the Republicans put on the tab, even including the money used to clean up their mess.

    He is addressing most of my priorities. That is more than I expected from moderate politician.

    Please take a civics course and stop embarrassing yourself. Your ignorance of how our govt. works says a lot about the education system in this country today. Let me know when the cleaning up of the so called mess begins because it is worse now than it was when Obama took office, deficit, debt, unemployment, govt. revenue, GDP. For someone your age I am shocked by your lack of education.

    Your priorities? Higher unemployment, low economic growth in the private sector, greater debt, bigger military budget, but what the hell, we are going to get gays in the military, you must be so proud.

    Your empty suit hasn't delivered on one campaign promise so not sure what you are talking about when you claim he is addressing most of your priorities. He is still campaigning and doesn't know how to lead.

    President Obama now says he's 'agnostic' on possible taxe hikes for households below $250K a year



    WASHINGTON - President Obama says he is now "agnostic" about raising taxes on households making under $250,000 a year to help cut budget deficits, signaling a possible retreat from a campaign pledge.

    In an interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek on newsstands Friday, Obama said a presidential budget commission needs to look at all options for deficit reduction - including tax increases and cuts in spending on such programs as Social Security and Medicare.

    "The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table," Obama said. "So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions."

    Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 campaign to spare households earning less than $250,000 a year from tax increases.

    With much of his legislative agenda stalled in Congress, President Obama and his team are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities.

    Mr. Obama has not given up hope of progress on Capitol Hill, aides said, and has scheduled a session with Republican leaders on health care later this month. But in the aftermath of a special election in Massachusetts that cost Democrats unilateral control of the Senate, the White House is getting ready to act on its own in the face of partisan gridlock heading into the midterm campaign.

    “We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues,” said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff.

    It is a good idea. It will pay for the two unconstitutional wars we are engaged in.

    You mean the wars that the Democrats voted for and thus authorized? By the way how much is the cost of those wars to the taxpayer, actual cost, not leftwing blog costs?

    The rate of growth for job losses has decreased under Obama, the market has improved, banks are no longer on the verge of collapse. He has invested in education and green jobs, and he has done more to protect our environment than any other president in history!

    I think that is pretty damn impressive for a moderate politician in his first year following a near depression! Certainly more than I expected him to accomplish.

    But than I never bought into the whole walks on water thing where he was supposed to solve all the world's problems in his first term. I am excited to see how much more he will accomplish in his remaining 7 years.
