    The speech has been written and rehearsed, but Obama is still tinkering with the words that he hopes will mark a moment in history and galvanize the nation for a new "era of responsibility."
    Obama Speech Calls for 'Era of Responsibility' - ABC News

    Really what policies of Obama's first 100 days have followed his supposed "era of responsibility"?
    Auto companies? umm...no
    Banks? umm...no
    AIG? umm...no
    As all of these have received taxpayer bailouts due to their poor decisions.

    Irresponsible individuals in society? Umm....no
    Obama has stated they shouldn't be required to read their credit terms enclosed with their new credit cards. In his opinion credit card companies should beat the terms in the heads of their card holders until they understand each and every term.

    His own appointees....hell no
    Congress....hell no
    Don't worry if you want to put earmarks in a bill without a debate, don't worry I will sign it this one time...Lmao

    It seems to me the only Americans that Obama is calling for to be responsible is the people that have been responsible all along, the taxpayers. By Obama's policies, he has forced the taxpayer to be responsible for others poor choices.

    What Obama means is "you guys worry about your own shit and don't look for the man behind the curtain...I'm the all powerful Wizard of Ozama biznitches!"

    obama is a liar and a con man, and certainly not smart enough to run this country. Anyone that hasn't figured that out yet has their head up their ass.

    WHAT?!!!

    NOW that Nobody is found responsible for the economic meltdown, (it was all a misunderstanding?) now the AMERICAN people need to become more reponsible?


    That's rich!

    Obama is being very responsible taking action to avert a potential depression.

    A guy like him who turned down lucrative wall street jobs wouldn't be giving wall street money because he admires the club. He is doing it because if he doesn't the economy would go over the cliff.

    And then our conservatives would have a field day about how Obama was "irresponsible"

    "Waste" is in the eye of the beholder--of the person looking at it but who doesn't think s/he caused it. To read and hear the way you folks talk, one would think that all of this is something new. Rather than a crisis of epic proportion that involved a lot of spending for defense of our physical security (911), we now have another crisis of epic proportion which involves a lot of spending so that we don't have a complete economic collapse.
