    Republicans are seeking to build on public anxiety and drape the weak economy around the necks of President Obama and the Democratic Congress if they hope to make gains in the 2010 congressional elections. Their daily, relentless message leaves little doubt that this is exactly what they intend to do as they hammer at the president’s $787 billion stimulus package (PL 111-5) and the growing national debt.


    The GOP also are tying the Democrats’ key legislative initiatives on global warming and energy and health care to the economy, charging that legislation pushed by Obama and his Democratic allies includes huge middle-class tax increases that would cripple the economy at exactly the wrong moment.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, who chairs the Senate Republican Conference, said another key component of the GOP strategy is to convince voters that the nation’s economic malaise belongs to Obama, not his predecessor or anyone else. “There’s going to come a time when the president has to be held accountable,”

    (HA! PROOF WE ARE STILL DEALING WITH BUSH'S MESS. THIS RIGHTY JUST SAID THERE WILL COME A TIME. NOT, "THE TIME HAS COME", BECAUSE IT HASN'T COME YET)

    During an appearance in Michigan Tuesday, Obama addressed some of the critics on his handling of the economy so far.

    “I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, ‘Well, this is Obama’s economy.’ That’s fine. Give it to me,” he said. “My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe. So I welcome the job. I want the responsibility.”

    He also cited health care overhaul as one means to deal with the economic downturn

    “We’re going to have to make the tough choices necessary to bring down deficits. But don’t let folks fool you,” he said. “The best way to start bringing down deficits is to get control of our health care costs, which is why we need reform.”

    Democrats, who say stimulus spending is starting to do its job, charge that Republicans will have a hard time convincing people that Obama still isn’t trying to fix Bush’s economic shambles.

    “I don’t think the American people will believe Republicans who are trying to pass the buck,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The American people are very fair. They understand Obama inherited a mess and is doing everything possible to get us out of this mess.”

    Obama and Dems are inflicting so much damage on the US Economy that Soviet war planners in the Ukraine are laughing themselves to death.

    Moscow new Nuclear Strategy for the USA: Why bother targeting US infrastructure with thermonuclear warheads when all we have to do is make sure Democrats win elections?

    All they have to do is sit back and say nothing, the Dems are handing it to them.

    Bullshit! The Dems are doing a fine job. They'd get more done if the lobbyists hadn't already purchased our "blue dog" dems.

    Health Care: The Public Plan Option

    These Democratic Senators have NOT agreed to support it:
    Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR)

    Senator Tom Carper (D-DE)

    Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA)

    Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR)

    Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL)

    Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE)

    Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA)

    Senator Kent Conrad (D-ND)

    Senator Max Baucus (D-MT)

    Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

    Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN)

    Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR)

    Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT)

    Don't worry though. We learned from THE HAMMER how to deal with them.

    You should have stuck with your first insticnt, it was correct, dems are to balme for dem problems.

    As I have told you a million times, the GoP sucks and I have no desire to see them in charge, however, I would like it if they could have enough power to block and inhibit idiots like you from pissing the country away.

    Don't worry, they do.

    They have enough votes to continue widening the gap between the rich and the poor.

    You'll be poor soon. You don't even realize it but America isn't what it once was. Why? NAFTA and no protections for Americans.

    You think you're above it? Well I don't know you personally but if you are the average American, you aren't.

    And so go wack off to the thought that Clinton signed NAFTA. If that makes you feel better. I know wacking off always makes me feel better.

    I haven't given up on the Dems yet, but the reality you point out does frustrate me. I'll admit it.

    But this "dems are taking us down the road to socialism" is a joke. The corporations, bankers, oil men and lobbyists have all the power. Not only do they have the power, they have the media and you out there slaving away for them. Sucker.

    My only problem is you are taking me down with you.

    If the Dems don't deliver, watch me leave the party. You think I'm as loyal as the bushies? Watch and see.

    And did they email/call Bush daily to complain? Complain about what? They loved him each time he made a bad decison. They denied he was fucking up.

    And the same people are saying the Dems are socialists.

    Are you sure you aren't a righty? Probably a libertarian which is nothing more than a fed up Republican.

    Should I go Green Party when/if I leave the Dems? :lol:
