See, there is not always a single cause and effect. Tax cuts don't always lead to a better economy.
    Sorry, but the point remains, it is their money first and why the passion to take it especially when none of any increase in taxes is going to pay down the deficit? Caterpillar did move to TX because of lower taxes and better labor conditions. One of these days the high tax states are going to get it, or maybe not. the people in those states deserve what they get.

    The Republicans attempted to rein in the large lending insitutions, but Barney Frank and Chris Dodd told us that there was nothing to worry about that Fannie and Freddie were in good shape. So in your mind, it was Bush who failed, not Barney and Dodd that did. Interesting....

    I'm a liberal? You have made several statements with anti-Bush implications. One of these was when you said that a president's approval rating is a reflection of his job. Well, Bush had one of the lowest approval ratings in history and he was a great president so I take offense to that statement. Secondly, you said that 1.5 years into a recession a president must take responsibility for the economy. Well the economy wasn't good 1.5 years into Bush's term and I don't believe he should have to take responsibility for that because he inherited a recession. Thirdly, you implied that signing bailouts was fiscally irresponsible, but Bush signed one in 2008 and Bush is very intelligent when it comes to finance and what is best for the economy. Fourth, you said that increasing deficit reflects bad on a president, but Reagan increased the deficit astronomically and Bush increased it more than any other president before him, and any true conservative knows that those two implemented the best economic policies this country has seen in a century. Then you top it all off by saying Obama ended the recession in June 2009 when I try to say he should be taking all responsibilty for the way the economy is right now. I think its you who is the closet liberal.

    Was there another Conservative available to vote for?

    Yeah, about 8 of them. Have you ever heard of the primaries? Obviously most of us conservatives felt he was worthy. What are you going to try to say next, a true conservative wouldn't want Sarah Palin as vice president? You're sounding like a closet liberal.

    I had no control over the primaries.
