    Smart guy.

    Honestly?

    No crop failures. No huge earth ending disasters. American workers most productive in the world. No shortage of highly educated and skilled people. And companies are making huge boatloads of cash.

    Where's the disconnect?

    Two things.

    Corporate greed.

    Tea Party.

    Now the lefties are going to blame republicans because Obama couldn't get enough key appointments confirmed to avert the financial crisis? The financial crisis started when Barney Frank let Fannie Mae collapse while he was telling Americans that Fannie was doing fine. Filibuster too? Will the whining ever end?

    Well yeah..

    If you can't fill the spots in your cabinet to do work..guess what? Nothing happens.

    And Fannie Mae had nothing to do with the financial crisis.

    John Thane did.

    It would be impossible for you to understand just how.

    Agreed he's a smart guy, but disagreed that the fault is all due to "corporate greed" and the Tea Party.

    Obviously the problem is a highly polarized Congress with each side unwilling to budge off their special interest agenda to do what is necessary for the good of our nation.
