A brilliant move to drive the economy further into the ground.

By usurping power without consulting Congress, by the way.

Blaming Bush for the 2009 deficit is absurd, because Obama added unfunded spending of $1 trillion as a gift to union pension funds.

Are you interested in anything other than politics?
Sure, but Galt prefers to remain private.

One thing that really turns Galt off, though, is people who make factually incorrect technical statements based on political ideology.

The Dow dipped Friday morning below the 8000 mark for the first time since March 2003, and overnight global markets in Asia and Europe experienced more sharp drops. " http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Economy/story :-D
That was totally off-topic and dumb.

I was discussing why the Dow Jones dropped sharply just before close today.

If you don't know the answer, just say so.

Care to refute the figures?
This isn't about the figures. You referred to the Obama budgets as "crap" and claimed that "obstructing them was a good thing." To justify your insane statement, you posted budget information and even tried to blame the Democratic Congress for the FACT that Bush left Obama with a record Federal Budget Deficit.

And, just for the record, in 2008 the final budget proposal sent to Congress by Bush was $3.1 TRILLION. You own it and since you people dug the hole, you will continue to be responsible until the economy recovers from the disastrous Bush legacy.

Also 40 years ago.

Doubt that 1% could name the winner of this year's Belmont (or any other race) without looking it up.

Horse racing is dead, kept alive in some states only as an excuse for casinos.

Galt agrees with the leftists that the Republican Party is in serious trouble.

If they cave in on amnesty, their base will stay home and they will lose in 2014.

Why vote for a party that ignores their base?

China has not signed the Kyoto Protocol and is exempt anyway because it is considered a developing country.

The reason for market movement on any particular day is highly technical, but there is no question that the current trend of the market is downward.

If people want the Dems to win because they choose to pout, that is their right.

Allowing someone who represents your wants less than the one you refused to vote for is the choice they made and have to live with the consequences of.
