we should have rented out the Oval Office over the last four years.....Obama is
too busy to govern, he has a full slate of vacations, golf, and campaign
speeches to give......If Carter was a failure, Obama is an Epic failure! Let
shope he resigns!
The President is doing all he can to preserve the ruling majority that the
Democrats have held in the House and Senate for the last 4 years. He deserves
every Democrats thanks for the effort and success to raise funds where ever they
can be found and to show how much has been done to Change America. The
difficulty is the changes have resulted in the same high unemployment and
stagnant growth that has plagued Europe during their decades old experiments
with similar policies. Solution for inequality need to be more sophisticated
than just new Government programs. They must promote lower government spending
(the cost of government services-federal, state, and local is beyond any
entities ability to pay and remain prosperous), efficient and effective
education, lower disease treatment costs, and security for seniors that is not
dependent on a shrinking number of employees. Find candidates with new ideas on
how to accomplish these things no matter the party and the country will flourish
KM,That's fine. Cutting spending is one way of reducing the deficit. But I
am not hearing any specifics from you or the Tea Party/Republicans on where
these cuts should occur. We are about to sweep a party back into power that has
no specifics. And I think the Republicans deserve a fair share of criticism for
not having a real plan. They want their power back, but have no idea what to do
with it.I just listened to a debate between Jim Matheson and Morgan
Philpot. Philpot is clueless about the economy. He has no specifics either. As
an excuse for having no plan, he actually took the Obama line of blaming prior
politicians for the mess we are in today.
EmajorI agree with you. Both parties need to come up with budget cuts
accross the board. Both parties are afraid they will loose power if they cut
back on the vote-getting social welfare programs that have been instituted.My solution is to cut, cut, cut spending! Enough of this open checkbook
solution to everything! We have way too many people on the dole. These people
vote for the party or the person that promises them the ability to stay on the
great government gift program. We need to make people a little more
uncomfortable in their poverty. Give them self respect, not a free ride.
KM:"What company, person or country can fix a problem when they haven't
even detailed what the problem is and what they are doing to remedy it." That's an excellent question to ask both the Democrats and the Tea Party
movement. What solutions do the Tea Partiers/Republicans have? Tax cuts? They
have to be paid for somehow, and I don't hear any serious proposals to cut
military, social security, and medicare, which make up the bulk of federal
spending. The Republican's recent "Pledge to America" was very vague and offered
rhetoric but no solutions. What are your solutions KM? You post some
very harsh criticism of liberals but offer very little substance in return. I
wouldn't expect anything to change if Republicans win control of Congress, but
you will be applauding the victory anyhow.
"[Republicans] can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."This is the president who promised us he would change the way things are done
in Washington. He would bring the parties together. We would usher in a new
era of openness in government. Deliberations about his policies would be
televised on C-SPAN.That's what he promised, but it's not what we
got.Obamacare was written by one party and its lobbyists.
Deliberations took place behind closed doors, with the other party locked out.
The bill was 2,000 pages long, and the vote was taken the day after its contents
were finalized. No one had time to read it; Pelosi told us we would have to
pass it to find out what was in it. It was rammed through on party-line vote
after a series of backroom deals and legislative bribes.Obama's
single-minded pursuit of a socialist utopia puts him far outside the mainstream.
He stopped even pretending to be a president for all Americans.The
reason he's so panicked right now, is that the Americans he previously ignored
are making themselves heard at the ballot box.
Politics aside, is there a big need for highspeed rail service
between Chicago and Iowa??
The "rebubs have run us into a ditch?" I seem to recall that the "do nothing"
dems haven't even given us a budget this year. And they are telling us they are
fixing the financial problem. What company, person or country can fix a problem
when they haven't even detailed what the problem is and what they are doing to
First of all, as the President he is supposed to be on the job working to help
this country. Why is he running around either on vacation or campaigning when we
did not elect him for this purpose. I want to see a President on the job working
on the hard issues and coming up with solutions. He is not paid to campaign and
I am tired of his talk of "change" when I don't see anything other than more
problems. I hope the Demo's can understand why people are dissatisfied with this
presidency. What we voted for and what we are getting are two different things.
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
Vote for anyone who says they want to return personal freedoms, free captive
american businesses, empower individual americans to make their own choices, run
their own businesses, decide their own health care, choose how they will educate
their families, decide how they will serve their neighbors and friends, and
decide how they will give to others in a charitable way. There are two
commandments of the ten ascribed to Moses that go hand in hand. Thou shalt not
covet. That means you don't want what others have. You may want to copy what
they did to make a living. That's cool. But you don't look over the fence and
wish you had what they have because it leads to that other commandment. Thou
shalt not steal. What's the next step after wanting what the other guy has? You
take it. The ten commandments weren't just nice little ideas for being nice to
people. They were the building blocks of a god-engineered society. And now look
at our government which has become essentially a covetor in chief that is
embarking on the second phase: TAKE IT.
President "Point the Finger and Blame Others" Obama. The most devisive
president we have seen. It's all about his party and his agenda.
