How about cash for clunkers, Detroit bailout, the fed bailout of banks, how about investigating Barney Franks, Chris Dodd, Chuck Shumer and the Clintons in their role. How about investigate Bill Clinton on why he passed up on bin laden, not once but twice? How about investigating Hussein Obama, he swore the unemployment rate would never go hirer than %8. Obama should be investigated for being unprepared for the office he finds himself in.

dermoRATs have nothing to say to defend Hussein's oBuma policy of destroying our country. The only thing they use for defending oBUMa's policy is pouring more dirt on President Bush. It is getting hilarious!!! What a bunch of ignorant communist germs.

Since the GOP wants to act like spoiled children, then never let them forget it.

Never vote for another republican.

Good point. I can't believe the disrespect being shown to President Obama. Yesterday a congressman shouted out "you lie" in Congress; parents barred their children from watching his wonderful speech. The white presidents have not faced such disrespectful behavior.

Are you kidding me, Bush never faced disrespectful behavior? Good thing you indicated a "president" because the way Sara P has been beat up, you shouldn't make this type of comment. I have to say W/T/F!

Sarah Palin gives as good as she gets and is fair game. She's a quitter and lacks the intellectual capacity to be anything more than the organizer of a junior high school bake sale. As long as she insists on inflicting her presence on the political scene, she will be beaten up. Get used to it.

Hey dummy mommy, where is the daddy? We never had the fraudulent "president" who is openly hate and trying to destroy this country. Wilson is a GREAT guy!!! everything coming from the mouth of Hussein OBUMA and his communist (all whites - Axelrod, Shumer, Shpitzer, Kerry, Boxer, Barnett Franky, Swarts -aka Soros, Reid, Pelosky, Vaxman, Fainstein, Dorman, Bieden, etc ) gangsters is a lie. They are all born to lie, as all real Marxisis - Leninists - Obamanistas! The country is in danger of destruction.

Well, of course, this is so logical. We know that it can't be Obama's poor progress on the economy or his inability to create new jobs. We know it can't be that he plans to quadruple the federal deficit. It certainly can't be his funneling of billions of federal tax dollars to the auto industry to please the UAW. None of this could upset americans, it can only be the color of his skin.

You must have the brain of a toad.

All of the President's supposed shortcomings that you bemoan are your opinion, or you simply choose to ignore reality. My opinion is that he has made good progress on the economy - it's out of recession. Unemployment is a lagging indicator, and saving the auto industry was a good thing - you'd be screaming about even worse employment numbers if it hadn't be rescued. Bush turned a surplus into a deficit, and your suggestion that the deficit has quadrupled under Obama is nonsense.

Keep your insults, post your opinions. I will eviscerate each of them.

Who do you want to vaporise today, Jimmy? You can run but can not hide! Are you still in MA - not in MN?
Do you still want to nuke Atlanta? You would kill a lot of blacks this way. You are the racist murderer! Such mass murderers usually get what they deserve!

Hello Mr. Meier and wake up and smell the coffee. The fact is that nobody has done more for the "fatcat fumblers and goofball gamblers of Wall Street" than your hero Obama. The bailouts that started with Bush (which I wasn't for) are nothing compared to the bailouts given to the "fatcats" (to use your term) by Obama.

I'm sorry that Bush had to go on the offensive to save our country after 8 years of a do nothing Democrat named Clinton. I smell Democratic hypocrisy. I smell someone who loves his party MORE than he loves his country.

Respect for the presidency went out the window during the Bush presidency and I doubt it will ever come back. Bush was treated horribly by the media and the Democrats. There was no respect shown. The whole mess set a bad standard for public behavior. This is definitely NOT about race.

The public has set themselves up into two armed camps. Democrats vs. Republicans. The fate of the country is now an afterthought. What really matters is which party comes out smelling like a rose. This country is in a very bad situation.
