    Do you have confidence in Obama?

    A follow up to the WaPo poll. I'm just interested in how the split is here at DP.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    He and I have different world views. He believes in trickle up. I think money doesn't flow from where it's not to where it is. He thinks you can build someone up by tearing others down. I think that's crazy.

    I think you're oversimplifying economics a bit there. Besides, trickle down economics haven't really shown any success in the past.

    The oversimplification is not intentional but it is illustrative of Obamanomics. Trickle down is what we've always had and will always have because that's the way a capitalist society functions. Everything else is just market manipulation and attempts at social engineering that always fail at some level.

    Is the Washington Post biased or fair ?
    I do have confidence in our President, but then I ignore the conservatives - seems as if there are a lot of them.....or....they are a very loud minority.

    An important qualifier ...trickle down ..or..up only works for the wealthy...the people matter not, never have.....and when conditions really become worse, the people will revolt..I do not think we are even close to this...

    Cautiously optimistic on the quality of the man our all futures depend on? That must be a real feel good experience.
