    You Bush-McCain voters are szichophrenic. Do you have multiple personality disorder?


    You cons spent 6 months saying Obama was a radical Marxist, and all of a sudden he's a Reaganite?

    :lol:

    Sigh. Obama ran as a "Reganite" but he won't govern as one.

    Actually you are missing the point. The themes of Obama's campaign were borrowed directly from Reagan's playbook. Change, hope, a vision of a successful future. These are all themes that played well for Reagan in 1980. Obama is not a Reaganite and doesn't share any political ideals, but he did employ the same strategy as Reagan and it worked for him. It shows that the American people still hold that vision that Reagan brought forward close to their hearts.

    Kudos to Obama for capitalizing on it.

    Thank goodness!

    The only thing good coming out of the Bush administration is proof positive that Trickle Down Reganomics and its reliance on wealthy corporations to create American jobs with their tax breaks because they were 'asked nicely' to is absolute bullshit.

    Funny Joe....corporations are the ONLY thing that supplies jobs. And there should be NO corporate taxes at all, since all they do is pass them on anyway.

    Actually, government has been expanding the number of jobs, at least until recently. Government spending has been growing at a 3-4% clip over the past year or two. With government spending, quarterly GDP would have been negative in at least three of the past four quarters and there would have been absolutely no debate about whether or not this country was in a recession (which of course it is).
