    Great article that sums up much of my own feelings as the stimulus bill has been played out over the past month culminating in Obama's staged signing today and the joint freefall of Wall Street in response.

    If Obama and the Democrats don't figure out the true pulse of this country quick - there will be an ideological revolt against them - all of them.

    This is what I mean by bullshit.

    He has been in office for a month. People know that the reason they are losing their jobs are because of the failed bush presidency and the current republican partisan blocking of anything but fucking tax cuts.

    This will all come back on the RNC with a vengence.

    Another article outlining the potential widespread backlash that will boil over quickly if this administration and Democrat led Congress don't create real, verifiable improvement for the nation's economy. The continued excuse of "It will take time" will fall on increasingly deaf ears as weeks turn to months...

    You are blinded. It wasn't Bush that spoke of catastrophes that couldn't be undone. It wasn't Bush that scared the daylights out of Congress. It was YOUR MAN, he owns this. For better or worse. Let's all hope your faith in him was justified, if not, woe to us all.

    The 500,000 Americans a month who are losing their jobs haven't forgotten Bush.

    It is going to take years to clean up the mess Bush created.

    I give him 100 about days before people start really asking themselves if the plan is working.

    It's too soon for 'backlashes'.

    People are waiting and seeing, if it doesn't work, you will see that backlash.
