    Ohh look, it does not bother Obama a bit that his budget plans will likely raise the deficit 4 times higher then the deficit you liberals whine about from Bush.

    Obama sidetracked by fiscal mess, but presses on

    Further he is on track to create a "people's" army with forced volunteerism ( exactly how is FORCED volunteering at all?). Did Mao bring down the old Chinese Communist Government with a "people's" revolution?

    I said that we would be wishing Bush was still in office once we got a good taste of Obama. I just didn't expect it to be quite this soon.

    I was one of those hippies protesting the Iraq War. My main motivation was that we just could not afford it. Funny how the Lefties who were with me are now blindly following the Democrats who are not only outspending Bush, but are more than happy to continue the war effort. :cuckoo:

    amazing isnt it


    the sad fact is, its probably better that McLame lost
    he would likely not have done much different
    at least now we can hope the voters will learn a lesson not to elect someone they dont know anything more about than "hope" "change" and "yes we can"

    McCain would never have gone along with that stimulus pork or the pork barrel budget.

    Well ... not sure but if I remember McCain did mention he made a mistake with it somewhere, just can't remember where. So maybe he would have learned from it and not repeated this crap Obama is ... damn I wish Hillary was on the dem ticket more each day, at least with two non-pop stars there would have been an actual election instead of an American False God show.

    What makes you think Obama isn't worried about the deficit?

    The fact that he's spending money to prevent a depression?

    Have you never been in a position where you spent money you could not really afford, but did so anyway because the outcome of not spending the money might be worse than the debt?

    Perhaps that's what Obama is thinking, no?
