    Oh yes Annie, believe the lie that it's Obama fault that things will get bad as they have very quickly.

    All these states with 10% or near 10% unemployment (including mine as the highest in the country) obviously skyrocketed in those few weeks Obama has been in office.

    Hell, I would of thought it would of taken more then a few weeks to start blaming Obama for all of life's problems.

    Hillbilly Report: Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

    Phil Gramm would probably call me a whiner, but Mr. Gramm was a sponsor of the legislation that got us to this point (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) of mortgaging our children's future to bailout the wall street thieves and John McCain voted with Senator Mitch McConnell to pass this piece of shit law, that also included the "Enron loophole" for their morally unrighteous right wing neocon, lazy ass slacker, thieving pals.
    Folks like John McCain and Senator Mitch McConnell own this mess and now they need to tell their the morally unrighteous right wing neocon, lazy ass slacker, thieving friends we're going to tax your asses till the cows come home to fund our, John McCain's and Senator Mitch McConnell's, mistake!!!

    This is about the most intellectually dishonest thing I have heard yet.


    Obama is taking the same course FDR took to end the first Depression which was caused by a completetly republican government.

    It worked then and it will work now.

    When its over the republican party will be a huge joke.

    Bill Clinton and he shares the guilt with the republicans who said it was a great idea.

    Now how about blaming the people who truely deserve the guilt. The entire republican party that held sway as the effects of this passage became all too appearant?


    Bush , Greeenspan and the entire republican party leadership who are still in office.

    The people will not fall for the wordsmithing and lies anymore.

    oh except you sara palin fans , you guys will believe anything as long as it as far from the truth as possible.

    no Slick Willy holds all the guilt. He could have vetoed but he didn't

    Just as GW holds all the guilt for the bad bills he signed

    Just as Obama will hold all the guilt for the bad bills he signs.

    THAT is the price of leadership

    John Maynard Keynes.

    He purported the lie that government spending was actually beneficial to the struggling economy.

    Truth be told, both parties are guilty. Republicans allowed the last 8 years of spend crazy and the democrats are purporting the same policies to get us out of this mess?

    If the market is allowed to correct, we'd be having a bad year, yes, but it won't last decades. Shame we haven't learned from our mistakes in the 1930s.
