    We all know that when Palin sold the governor's jet it was not sold for a profit.

    We all know Palin has only reduced federal funding in Alaska, not cut it off completely overnight.

    We all know that Bush has signed Kennedy's abyssmal NCLB and the Rx Drug Plan and other big $$$ Boondoggles into law.

    But thankfully we have Obama now.

    Obama is CHANGE.

    CHANGE we can BELEIVE in.

    As a tribute to that change I would like to list all of the awesome cost-cutting, earmark-slashing, program-reducing, budget-balancing legislation Obama has set forth during his xtensive tenure in the senate.

    A-a-a-and...

    GO!

    I would say that is the one thing we can be pretty certain WILL NOT change if Obama is elected. Government will still spend like drunken sailors, just more so.

    Now, now!

    I keep hearing how bad all these earmarks are from Obama's supporters as well as Obama himself.

    Surely, they have as much cause for their hope as he has for making the claims to reduce earmarks.

    Here's an entire thread dedicated to extolling his efforts and successes in cutting those earmrks and wasteful gov't pending.

    Clinton was a fiscal conservative. He signed welfare reform and balanced his budget.

    Remember they STILL called him a lefty liberal.

    I'm not interested in Bill's policies.

    I want to praise Obama's achievements.

    i am not really an Obama supporter, but ONE thing i know for Certain, is that Democratic Presidents ARE more fiscally responsible than Republican Presidents that Borrow from foreigners and spend, spend spend....which hurts us much, much more with the dollar devaluation from it....

    People like you said the same thing about Clinton when he beat the pants off Daddy Bush. Maybe you aren't old enough to realize you are repeating campaign bullshit lies that get recycled every 4 years.

    If you are voting for McCain after reading the news for the last 8 years, then there is nothing that will change that.

    McCain could walk in your house and make angry love to your wife and you would come here and brag that for a 70 year old, he sure had an erect penis.

    This isn't about generalizations of LBJ or Jimmy Carter, it's about Obama's solid record of CHANGE.
