    Almost feel sorry for the guy. The left wing hate media is going to eat him alive in six months or sooner.
    You obamabots are going to be watching a lot more FOX News, Just to get some of that fair and balanced you said wasn't there.

    no he's not, he's thinking of holding off til the economy stabalizes and he's thinking of not repealing the Bush tax cuts but rather just letting them expire..

    Hard to tell Silence. If you judge by who he's appointing and what he's saying, it may be Bush 3. So, same as McLame. But, if it's any consolation, I don't believe him. I think he really is a Marxist. So, we'll get our share of real Hugo Chavez type change sooner rather than later.

    If he does a really good job, maybe next election we can just vote "yes" or "no".

    While I certainly do think that desperate times call for desperate measures, it is still alarming that after so convincingly asserting a new political era Obama has done an awful lot of back pedaling. From campaign finance and lobbyists to contemplating abandoning his repeal of elitist tax cuts, it's unsettling that a democrat so bent on being the independent democrat is looking more and more like another cog in the political machine.

    I have presumed, ever since the economic meltdown, that the tax structure isn't going to change significantly as Obama had promised back before this meltdown happened.

    I operate under the assumption that the tax breaks for billionaires MIGHT be allowed to go back to the tax scheme it had been, but now?

    I am doubtful that even that will happen.

    Now is NOT the time to try to balance the budget.

    That is exactly what hoover tried which turned the economic meltdown on Wall street into the economic meltdown of the entire economy.

    We are suffering from a dirth of money right now.

    The last thing we need to do is make that worse.
