    Neither one has given any indication that they know what to do about our current financial crisis. They both get grades of "F" on their economic policies.

    Obama is the one that wanted oversight on much of this economic shell game that has been going on while McCain has said he is Mr. De-Regulation.

    Pay me now or pay me later.


    Pssst. It's cheaper to pay now

    Except he hired Raines, who made millions defrauding Fannie Mae, to be his advisor.

    He also hired Jim Johnson.

    Ditto Austan Goolsbee.

    All the while taking over $120,000 in donations from the failures during his brief tenure.

    I used to think Christians accepted a lot on faith, but you people are stunning.

    It is odd that people never assume that I am Jewish...And are you talking about Obama? You are just saying 'he' with no previous reference to a single subject. And do you have any opinion about either candidate's policy?

    Given republican failure in governance I am hoping a more egalitarian economic approach gets us away from the self centered greed that has take over the nation. UHC in particular can help business and people spend on other things that help all but it needs to be controlled. Alternate energy is a way to bring back manufacturing.

    Agenda for Shared Prosperity

    Buy American where to can to offset trade deficits.

    Obama has raised $374 million dollars from 1.5 million contributors. His is the largest grassroots campaign in American history. He is beholden to no one but those 1.5 million people.

    Your ignorance is stunning.

    It is not a political party's responsibility to govern the economy, Karl. Guess that makes your entire post based on mispeaking the mistruth, huh?
