    I actually started a thread, asking that. What a three-ring circus it turned out to be. Highlights? No, actually; there is nothing he can do right, in their perception.

    and I gave Obama a pass for a while....but 18 months is long enough. Time for him to man up and show some results.

    four words:

    Al Gore
    John Kerry

    Bush was the lesser of two evils in both elections

    I would have started with GWB (you may recall...his spending policies are the reason I left the GOP). I would have insisted congress pass two edicts and if they didnt I would have signed an executive order...1-No banks may sell mortgage notes. 2-Any bank that fails, the mortgage goes to the property owners...free and clear. You want stimulus? Boom. right out of the box.

    I wouldnt have bailed ANY of them out. They made the mess, I would have made it their job to fix the mess.

    I would have insisted we gut the federal government...left taxes alone and paid down the debt.

    I would have insisted on a balance budget amendment. I would have vetoed every piece of legislation that had a single dollar unaccounted for.

    I would have incentivized US owned businesses to bring Jobs back to America and taxed the hell out of any American owned product manufactured out of the country. I would have incentivized foriegn manufacturers to open more plants here. I would have done everything necessary to reinvigorate our industrial base, starting first and foremost by keeping the federal government OUT of it to as large an extent possible.

    I would have cancelled all monetary foreign aid and reinvested that spending in American farms and product development...using that output to feed and clothe our own people and the remainder as our 'foreign aid'. Every can would be distributed by US representatives.

    Thats a short list. I would have expected CONGRESS to do their jobs. I would have expected the states to do their jobs and not have bailed them out.
