Re: I Apologize

Every Dem in the country needs to play this video over and over leading up to the elections. This should be the centerpiece, because it's one of those things that makes an honest, decent person fume the more it's seen and heard.

The lack of historical context by the little dbag from Texas and every other moron who tries to pretend the administration's response is somehow extraordinary will not persist if the Dems keep on this too. Truman (long before he was President) took damn near every American corporation supplying the WWII effort to task w/ his Congressional watchdog group. Often times "shaking down" bullshit contracts and otherwise recouping monies from the military industrial complex. He did this almost single-handedly as a Congressman and over 50 yrs ago to boot.

Looks like Angle is going save Harry's job. Thanks you very much. It's going to be a battle but make no mistake this is not going to be another 94.

I hope that's your playbook and Rush and et al are calling the plays.

It will take like forever for BP to clean up their mess. They make even the Exxon Valdez of 1989 look like a cakewalk cleaning it up. They are only sorry they got caught, meaning BP!

His approval rating keeps dropping and dropping. A whopping 41% right now. He'll be in the 30's before you know it.

I knew you'd come around, I told you I'd save you a seat at the GOP table. LOL

Re: I Apologize

Republican/conservative hegemony is still fresh in the minds of most of us, so the alternative to Obama is still a relatively concrete thing i.e. massive tax cuts for the rich that keep us in budget deficits even when the economy is growing, tearing away regulatory framework which gives the most wealthy/powerful a free pass to lie, cheat and steal, constant drumming about social issues that most of the country now doesn't care about or sides w/ progressives anyway, etc, etc.

There's really hasn't been a new idea in the Republican party and/or conservative movement now for over 3 decades. It's talk about social issues and small government, then once in power massive budget deficits (Reagan and the Bush presidencies still acct for most of the national debt by far) and public policies that (drastically) favor the rich. Same old shit over and over and over again. Blah.

I find it hilarious that you use debt/deficit in this argument. Obama talks about obligations to care for the next generation, and yet he continues his dangerous tax/spend agenda while continuing to further expand government. He's spending like a maniac. You can justify some of it I guess, but it is what it is- our children's children will be paying for this administration for years.

Obama is a weak, hollow, false-promise laden, 2000's version of Jimmy Carter. He sucks. Is there a Republican out there who would be a huge upgrade? I'm not so sure. American politics is effed in the A. I just really, really cannot stand this administration.

A "tax and spend" policy is always better than a "don't tax and spend" policy. False promise laden? He's really keeping up with majority of his promises...don't let the fact that he didn't promise you and your ilk things that please you cloud your judgment.

Now if only he can muster the will to get us out of the two wars your kids will be in a better position in the future. Let's pray that he makes the right call and we pack up and go home.

The current spending situation is predominantly spending outlays set in stone long before BO took the oath of office...then a recession/depression hit. Two things happen 1) tax receipts plummet (worsening all government budget scenarios) and 2) governments must simultaneously lay out more expenditures for things like unemployment insurance and things similar. The recovery projects are a matter of opinion in that most economists ultimately fall to the side of Keynes, that government spending in recessions/depressions keep us from going over the edge.

Historically, the thing that should truly unnerve the American citizen is the massive budget deficits in times of relative peace and prosperity. We have ole Ronald to thank for this phenomenon. Reagan's admin oversaw about 3 trillion in new debt (when he took office the federal debt hovered at around a trillion). That's absolutely horrible public policy...in the long run public policy that will destroy any country. The elder Bush did try to reverse the idiocy of the modern conservative movement when he drastically reduced military spending and proposed taxes to balance the budget. However the next Republican president (the retarded one) picked up right where Reagan left off: massive tax cuts and massive budget deficits simultaneously.

It's a shame the conservative movement is so committed to terrible public policy because there is a rich history there. Pat Buchanan is still one of my favorite public figures and I can only imagine how different our country would be if conservatives had gone that route instead of the low road.
