    beg pardon then...given your natural proclivity to attack me whenever I post, I assumed that this was status quo.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    What about the five trillion plus that President Bush added. I do beleive he also was the one to established the first bail out on Oct 3rd <hushed tone> because that was 3 days after when it counted on the 2008 debt totals. The fiscal year starts on Sept 30th. That made the 700billion bailout appear as though President Obama spent it in 2009. <end of hushed tones> That brings President Bush's total to over SIX TRILLION.

    All of the debt the country incured between President George Washington and the end of President Clinton added up to around 5.5 Trillion. President Bush Spent over 6 Trillion. I just dont get this. I dont want President Obama to spend it either so where were you during the last presidency. The country really could have used your help

    Since we are only two years in to President Obamas term I dont feel its fair to judge. There are SOOO many things that can go wrong.

    I can say that I was not happy with the direction the country was going after eight years under President Bush. It was hard to listen to the news because everything was crisis this or disaster that. Our economy, security and freedom all took a serious toll under him. Not to mention our credibility. Most countries had unquestioned faith in us since world war II. We no longer can say that.

    Looks like a few people out there would like a do-over on Obama.
    You guys keep coming up with the same numbers that Reagan had at the same point and you think it means something.

    I hope they don't think that. That would be stupid. Just saying. . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It means they stick their hand in the oven and see if the soufflé is done every 2 minutes. At every turn, they have to bash Obama. And they'll create any combination of irrelevant and meaningless numbers to make themselves feel better.

    Bottom line - Reagan was tanking at this point, but he ended up being one of our most popular presidents.

    Bush was at on all time high at this point, but he finished up having the lowest approval in history. The worst President in modern history.

    So, the numbers, the polls at this point, don't really mean that much. A CNN poll, a Fox poll, any poll asking people how they feel in the middle of this recovery period where business won't hire because they were all overextended and need to pay down their own debt... of course you're going to get negative answers. Duh.

    But when businesses start hiring... we'll see.

    This is good! So typical of the broken Liberal thought machine, LOL! Most countries.....say......except for, France, The Soviet Union, Cuba, China, North Korea, North Vietnam, Libya, Venezuela, Columbia, Panama, Grenada, Cambodia, Laos, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, India, Pakistan, Nicaragua, Mexico.............shall we go on and on and on? Yes, we were so well-loved and fully trusted before that tyrant, George W. Bush took over.

    You missed the point. Civilian oversight is a must. This is not the point. There comes a time when civilians should get out of the way. Civilian wannabes have too often proven to have a great ability to extend and stumble through wars.

    It is civilian failure that leads us into war. And after they have elected to toss the military into what they screwed up, these same failures announce to the public that they will find a way out. In the mean time, the military they rode into war on, is just trying to win their wars. But our politicians want their undue and unearned credit don't they? So they gum up the works, make the military second guess itself in the middle of combat maneuvers, and seek ways to escape the war instead of win it. A lot of blood in Iraq was because politicians way back in the U.S. of A. decided that they knew better than men who spend their lives at their military craft. Fallujah II, Al Sadr, open borders.....all civilian "leadership."

    Just....get....the...hell....out.....of....the.... .way.

    Of course we can. Don't be dramatic. This is a myth spread around for the sake of those who need to self flaggelate.

    Most countries bear us no ill will and could care less about a dictator that had lived well beyond his expiration date. In the end, they still leach off the table we provide. Would it suprise you to know that the countries that rallied for the dictator's life (namely France and Germany) have a history of seeking to undermine American foreign policy at every turn? Nothing's changed. Taking out Saddam Hussein merely gave people their latest excuse to act the fool against America. But what did France do trwo years after we toppled Hussein? They dropped in a consulate building to grab a piece of the pie. And European leaders have groveled enough over Obama to ensure that they still can pull up a chair. And as their Islamic problems in the European region worsen, they will seek American support above all else. We are the sure bet. And the world knows it.
