    Scary ....

    So in other words he doesn't care if it works, but is hoping it works.
    I don't know ... if it were me in his shoes I would be showing no doubt and no fear, but the longer this goes on it seems he is unsure himself!!

    Not only unsure but he doesn't care.

    Personally, I think he's just being honest. He clearly has no idea if this will work or not, but he feels he has to do something. I just wish he would drop the rhetoric of, "Well the last eight years didn't work, so we don't have to listen to the free marketeers." He needs to realize that the free market did not reign over market intervention the last eight years and pay more heed to those that say the market needs to correct itself.

    If he is being honest than it should reflect in his behavior-----you say on one hand that you don't know if it will work and then turn around and act as if the country will die without it.

    What would you rather hear?

    That the economy "is fundamentally strong", and there is no recession like Bush Jr. told us and then the last 6-8 months, it blows up, or, being told that the economy is a mess, they're trying to fix it, and because of the fuck ups of the past admin, they don't know if they can fix it yet?

    Or......McStupid telling us that he can fix the economy in 4 years?

    Me? I prefer honesty to being lied to.

    You're absolutely right. What I meant was, I think he's being honest when he says this as opposed to his "sky-is-falling" rhetoric.

    I think this was the wrong time for Obama to be our President. He is in way over his head. That being said, just about anyone, at this time, would be in the same position, in way over their head. Out of all of the choices we had, Romney probably would have been best to deal with the situation we are now in, but that's not a guarantee either.

    The fact is that even the financial "so called" experts disagree on what should be done. The one thing everyone seems to agree upon is that "something" needs to be done. The only problem with that is whether or not this is the right "something".

    In the end, this may all fail miserably and we'll be in worse shape than we already are. On the other hand, it might work as planned, or things might correct themselves despite this being a blunder. All we can do is wait and see.

    There are no earmarks on this bill, is that the truth ?

    I already know what you're gonna say, but he's really not telling the truth. It's the truth along the lines of the famous quote " i did not have sexual relations with that woman". :eusa_whistle:
