    I know that's a fear that may be realized in the near future (runaway inflation) but I dearly hope we get some serious recovery action first.

    CON$ have turned lying up past 11.

    Obama's first total budget deficit was $122 billion LESS than Bush's last TOTAL budget deficit. And TOTAL means BOTH on budget and OFF BUDGET deficit spending.

    Yeh but the Dems don't see a problem with it at all.If someone complains on this board about it we get a response from the Libs here of...." Well Bush did it and it was ok so now it's a problem"....well yeh.

    It's like the Libs will feel cheated if we go against their DNA of spend,spend,spend....oh it didn't work well we need to spend,spend,spend twice as much.

    It's insane....everyday I wake up expecting to see rioting in the streets bucause the World economy had just collapsed.

    I read this last night - Reynolds is spot on.

    Obama does deserve credit for being Transparent, but not in the way he meant. His overreaching puts the Big Government Agenda in stark relief, and the majority of Americas are horrified by it.

    No actually it's "St Ronnie did it" and everyone knows Reagan is God. We were told that Reagan PROVED that deficits don't matter, so how can anyone argue against that!

    The difference between the Dems and the GOP is the Dems TAX and spend, spend, spend and the GOP BORROWS and spend, spend, spend three times as much.

    "Reagan proved deficits don't matter."
    Dick Cheney

    'I don't worry about the deficit. It's big enough to take care of itself.'
    Ronald Reagan
