I must say...it is enjoyable listening to the whining from conservatives about spending.

Just change the word 'economy' into 'Iraq' and it will all make sense.

A bit myopic wouldn't you say? There's an elephant in the room and your fixated on the mole on it's rear end.

Exactly.

Our government is primarily comprised of a bunch of narcissistic attorneys and career politicians who have little or no private sector business experience, yet who are regulating and ruining entire industries they know little or nothing about.

Let's face it 90% of what our government is involved in now is little more than legalized plundering.

Obama is a smart man who has had little experience or success in the private sector, yet he is making and enforcing trillion dollar economic decisions that will be paid for by our children and grandchildren to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars.

Is their anyone on this entire forum who believes this makes sense?

I don't! I just got done watching Obama speak about GM and Chrysler while I was eating lunch (big mistake, almost threw up my sandwich a couple of time). He stated that he did not want the American Government to run GM or Chrysler (meaning take over), but in the same regard he is telling them HOW to run their company. Does something seem wrong here to anyone else?

Also, I love how everytime he goes on TV to speak, the DOW meter in the corner of the screen always seems to have a red arrow pointing down. Now, I's not a smaht man, but dis caint bee goodz.

Again, as I pointed out, the Wars are probably THE one and only difference between Bush running up a deficit, and Bush compiling a pretty nice surplus.

Don't like the War? Fine. But something did have to be done, and there would have been a cost, both monetarily and militarily regardless. 9/11 was not something anyone saw coming.

The financial crunch is different. This really wasn't a TRUE surprise to anyone, and once it happened, there was time to formulate a way to fix it. THIS is where Obama comes up short. He's trying to pay for a complete social makeover for this Country, along with adding a TON of domestic spending on pet liberal programs, at a time when the Country is broke, broke, broke. It's not only untenenable, it's just plain stupid.

I say again, focus on the ONE and ONLY problem that matters right now, which is fixing the economy, spend about 20% time and energy on the wars (the Generals can manage the war efforts), freeze everything domestically and push your social agenda second term. EVERYTHING else must wait! Most of the junk Obama is pushing for will be COMPLETELY scrapped if he torpedoes the economy into oblivion anyway, so something is better than nothing...

The CEO of GM stepped down from the "request" of the Obama administration.
