    Is anyone really surprised? The economy has tanked even worse since Obama took over from Bush.

    Spending and socialism... thats the agenda of the day for the Obama White House and the Dems in Congress.

    I wish they'd printed the questions because it sounds like most of them don't think he was aggressive enough. I agree. He needs to nationalize the banks temporarily and clean up this mess.

    This was pretty funny:

    What a shock, economists saying that spending money you don't have on things you don't need is a bad idea.

    And an apparently equal number of them saying we aren't spending enough of it.

    Are these the same economist that have been repeatedly blind sided by this avalanche ? WTF do they know ? Money is for spending people. That's the whole game.

    Nearly half said the exact opposite, apparently the administration has not spent enough.

    Some 43% said the U.S. will need another stimulus package on the order of nearly $500 billion.
