The day democrats stop making the "Bush" justification for what Obama is doing is the day we will make progress.
This President trying to present himself as some sort of deficit-hawk, while completely ignoring the fact that he's just signed the largest spending bill in US history. It's about time Obama got called-out on his incredulous statements and disingenous "goals". He's been writing his own story while the MSM just parrots it for far too long, and very little of it squares-up with reality. Maybe the press could do their job already, we've had enough articles on Obama's puppy-vetting process and how he likes to play basketball.
The so-called stimulus bill was nothing but a mass of Democrat pork projects they say will save jobs, but any jobs will be short-lived and hard labor. There is nothng in there for the private sector where 80% of jobs are created. That fact is the stimulus bill alone cost more tha Iraq, Katrina and Afghan during Bush combined. And Obama has 3-times more the amount to spend in pending bills for housing, more bank bailouts, more Afghan, college loans, health care for kids. The tax dodger in chief Tim Gietner has printed so much money, your toilet paper will be worth more than the dollar.This deficit is going so high the only way out will be hyper inflation (printing money) like the Nazis did to pay off their foreign debts.
I was warning people before Obama was elected that he woud be a disaster. What do you expect from a 2-year most Liberal Junior Senator from corrupt Illinois?
I am sorry all of you Bush haters only see one thing. You have NO idea how screwed up we are getting with this democratic agenda, but Wall Street and people like Rick Santelli get it. I have gotten it since way before the election, I wanted anyone but Obama.
Obama has sold this country the biggest rip off in history. Not only is he "do nothing" (Congress wrote all the bills, all he does is fly around and talk), he is also engendering hatred from Israel while coddling the Muslim nations. He is also insulting the businesses who made this country great. Bottom line, if you don't work for the government in 2012 you probably will be hurting badly. Stock market is down since he was elected, unemployment up, housing values down (and what does he want to do - raise capital gains. WHAT?!?!?)
I agree that conservatives should have spoken up about Bush's reckless spending. However, the true fact of the matter is that our Congress has gotten way out of control and spending trillions of dollars more on things that will not help is criminal. There is absolutely nothing in this bill (which Congress did not even read) that will help the average citizen. Spending didn't work for FDR and it wont work now. Raising taxes doesn't work. Bush cut taxes and the tax revenues INCREASED by 13% and economic growth was 4%. Obama is doing the exact opposite.
Whether or not you approved of Bush, it was clear that he loved and defended the principles upon which our Nation was founded. While Obama may be a fine individual, his policies and programs are the antithesis of everything I believe has contributed to American exceptionalism. Simply put, while I wish him no ill, I hope each and every one of his initiatives dies the miserable death it's deserves.
Liberal or Conservative; I believe that America needs to reach a point of absolute rejection of our crazy politician's attitude of stupidity and plundering of our tax money. Wake up people. Americans are losing their jobs, homes, retirement, etc and all Congress wants to do is increase the pork...
