DOW down 70 when Obama started the press conference. Ended today down 184. Guess Wall Street knows bullshit when it hears it. Is the crash just around the corner?

I doubt it homer. Most people don't fight with cowards. You just run and call for your nanny state. Everyone knows you can't fend for yourself.

Of course spending doesn't reset to zero, but.....
Tarp came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits
The stimulus came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits
The iraq war came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits
Afghanistan winding down and we still have trillion dollar deficits
Something's got to give.
Take that 6 trillion & subtract the following costs that Obama inherited directly from Bush

1) The cost of the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan

2) The Cost of two years of the Bush tax cuts

3) the cost of the unfunded expansion of Medicare

4) The loss of income caused directly from the Bush recession (well over a trillion)

5) The cost of helping people caught up in the Bush recession through unemployment, food stamps, & welfare increases.

6) The cost of TARP

7) The cost of stimulus action to fight the Bush recession.

How much is left?

Few remains. Because his pack of skillful hunter's grows thin.

Too harsh? ;)

You are disparaging the greatest president of our life time. Most everyone acknowledges that, Homer notwithstanding.
How is that kidney doing?
I was talking about Reagan, not Washington. My kidneys are fine, Homer not an abusive alchoholic like most middle-aged Republicans. BTW have been meaning to ask, how are your treatments coming along? Did you get rid of the head lice? Impetigo still an issue?

No. Just replying to you in the manner in which you reply to me.

Obama's dream.

First he is visited by George Washington. Obama asks George "how can I can get the respect of the people?" George says "just be honest like I was and stop lying to the people, everything will work out."

Next comes in Thomas Jefferson. Obama asks Thomas "I am so confused with the complexity of Congress, what should I do?". Thomas says "read the constitution and follow it like I did, eveything will be just fine."

Last visitor is Abe Lincoln. Obama asks Abe "I managed to get re-elected, but I have no plan for my second term, what should I do"? Abe says "Relax, take it easy, why don't you go see a play like I did."

The government spends 3.5 Billion a year, taxing "the rich" will not pay for it all!
