    We need Professors of Economy, Accounting, History and Political Science advising Congress, NOT lobbyists and lawyers!

    This president seems determined to bankrupt our country. We are not getting the leadership that we so desperately need in these times. He just doesn’t get it that any taxation right now will stop any economic growth therefore increasing unemployment. He needs to get down off his campaign platform, roll up his sleeves, and listen to us. If it is as he says, a 3 ring circus, who is the ringmaster?

      You are so wrong! It’s the repubs that caused all of this.

      • Jman says:

        Have you got your head stuck in the sand like a ostrich? Why do you think the majority of the country is so mad at the uncontrolled spending that the government is doing? If this country does not bring the spending under control our enemies will walk in and take over without a shot. Then what will you say?

      • wwasion says:

        The dems had two years of total control in the White House and both houses of Congress. In violation of the law, they passed no budget, but spent trillions of dollars and got us deeper in debt than any other administration. Obama loves to blame Bush, but if Bush’s economic policies were so bad (and I am not defending him here), why did Obama continue doing the SAME THING? Remember, insanity is doing the same thing but expecting different results. Our government is INSANE!!!

    One more poll where the bias is obvious! Sadly, this particular bias is not the one getting the attention of the mainstream media and/or his majesty in Washington. If taxes are raised again or social security checks are one minute late you will hear the loudest maddest scream heard in this country since “the British are coming” go ahead, liberals TRY US!

    Most days, it’s hard to believe that POTUS and the liberal elements in society are NOT trying to ruin America. They talk about American arrogance and American wrongdoing in the past and then, instead of trying to change policy for the better, they do things that make no sense and which seem to counterindicate a desire for national success.
