    That may be the case. But laws are still written by Congressmen and Senators. I think it's disingenuous to blame the President for signing into law the bills that get passed by Congress. It's for those reasons why Presidents don't get re-elected but we continually get the same unpopular Congressmen and Senators into office - they just pass the buck over to someone else the responsibilities that the office of Congressmen or Senator they themselves have taken on are responsible for.

    The same is true of responsibility for the economy turning south (though not for the government funded recovery...)

    You're right. I don't put any blame on the government for the downturn of the economy. I'm not going to cast my votes based on that either. The economic practices of American citizens has changed greatly in the past 3 years, despite what the government does. The government and businesses will have to adapt to those practices, and the sooner they do so the sooner our economy will become more functional.

    Yeah, it's because I have the morning off for once. Very good back-and-forth indeed.

    2016, maybe, especially if she takes VP Biden's place. The Democrats are not going to abandon the Messiah.

    I could certainly see that. Things would have to get much worse (i.e. certain defeat) for her to run against him in 2012.

    Who's the most promising fascist candidate for 2012?
