    Because with declining poll numbers, skyrocketing commoditie prices, gas above 3.00, unemployment likely above 8% and the host of other problems that Obama has at his feet he can count on idiots like this to not only buy it but alas the morons will quite possibly vote as well. This is what elects those who otherwise wouldn't stand a chance in hell.....

    Bottom line if you don't deserve the votes or can't "earn" them through good leadership, just buy them.

    8% unemployment:cuckoo::cuckoo:--we haven't seen that LOW of a number for 3 years! We are currently at 9.1% unemployment and weekly claims jumped again last week. Scaring the crap out of this administration--so we had another perfectly pronounced speech coming from Obama last night regarding Afganistan and he today is throwing the "hail Mary pass" by throwing 30 million barrels of oil out of our strategic reserve to get gaslone below 4.00 per gallon. (Which of course is a temporary--very short term fix.)

    I say 8% at election time because I'm hopeful that it comes down a bit. But yes I'm well aware of our current stats. I'm just projecting some minor growth

    Republicans are pushing for spending cuts. they are also hold the debt ceiling hostage to get them. This is just playing to the base so they can blame republicans for being obstructionist.

    Because they can't figure out that real solutions will only occur when we cut taxes and cut spending.

    Every Economist worth a damn agrees that the first stimulus was too small. It got the economy growing, but only added a couple million jobs and we need more. The drop in GDP was pegged well north of $2T so a second stimulus of $1T should really do the trick.

    I know you guys think it's about buying votes, but really, it's just math.

    There you go again...

    "every economist"....not true....just as many economists were against ANY stiumulus...but the left wing talking heads always say "every economist"

    "it got the economy growing".....really? Even Obama finally had to admit that the "shovel ready jobs" werent as shovel ready as he thought

    Do you have any idea of the difference between injecting capital into an economy and an economy creating capital itself?

    One is short term and results in little to no long term gain.

    The other is longer term and results in long term gain.

    Stop regurgitasting what the left wing talking heads say and start educating yourself.

    You wont come across as so naive.
