    actually all the borrowing was done through selling treasury bonds. now. who bought treasury bonds?

    Companies were basically given money and they are hording capital.
    yes you keep suggesting this. the corporations are sitting in their big corporate buildings being all corporationy.

    but i agree that the government has no business in giving money to businesses in hopes of stimulating the economy. the government sucks at picking winners and losers.

    Whatever is happening now will have zero impact on the election.

    By the time the election is upon us, the issues of THAT time will be the only thing that matters.

    People have too short a memory for anything else.

    Normally I would say your dead on...I dont think its going to be that simple this time...these govs have created such animosity...more than ive ever seen and they did it to themselves by trying to be tough guys and bullies and villifying people

    Look people are not going to forget these govs got elected and the first thing all of them did was give out huge tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations and they said WERE BROKE we have to screw all the public workers, we cant afford you...
    Rick Scott in florida went even more off the deep end...giving utilities and property insurers huge increases...
    This time its different, I think anyway

    the debt ceiling, will, i think, play a part in setting the general feel of the election. Democrats have a short and decreasing time span to shuck off the image that they are the party of ever-increasing government spending. Republicans need to use the time now to prepare to defend the Ryan Budget, which will also be a major part of the 2012 election.

    Not all people have short memories so I'll only somewhat agree. The election is in November of 2012 and issues then will carry more weight(the economy)

    These conservative politicians barely won in lib states. First thing they had to do was be the adults in the room and say the party’s over kids, time to clean up the mess. Many of the children in the room that voted for adult supervision are now upset about it. They knew the house was being trashed and wanted daddy to come home before it was burned down completely but now that he has they are whining and throwing a temper tantrum like all spoiled kids do. Hopefully by election time these little brats will realize the party had to end and Dad’s discipline was needed. Maybe they will realize they had to grow up. It will be interesting to see if they do.

    I agree with that CP...I also believe the Teaparty Republicans are on thin ice and have created the perception to americans that they are looking out for the rich and powerful at the expense of the rest of us....why do you think the poll numbers are dropping.

    The tide has indeed turned.

    It will be the economy. If the economy doesn't start getting better soon, no one but the true believers will believe the Republican rhetoric.

    Which of course means nothing to True Believers of the Right and they will dismiss that out of hand. The only opinion polls they pay attention to are the ones which appear to validate their own belief system.
