Where did I say that this is his fault? And by the way, whose fault is it that you can't read, or understand what little you manage to read?
What I am saying is that we are in the middle of a downwards spiral, caused BY MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES in the Executive and Legislative branches of our Government, and that the solution proposed by Nobama ARE NO SOLUTIONS AT ALL!!!!

Nobama promises only to tax "the rich" but his definition of who is "rich" IS DROPPING FASTER THAN THE DOW JONES!!!!!

It went from $250,000 a year to $200,000, then to $150,000 and this weekend, according to Biden, it just went down to $125,000 per household!!!!

I got news for you guys; most households where both spouses are employed educated profesionals ARE ALREADY THERE, and they are NOWHERE NEAR WHAT COULD BE DEFINED AS "RICH" IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!

Maybe Nobama has pulled the wool over your eyes already, and you are one of those people that "you can fool all of the time", but in order to convince me to drink his Kool-Aid, he needs TO PICK A STORY AND STICK TO IT!!!!!

I have news for you. My spouse and I are the ones you speak of, we are "educated professionals" and we "are NOT there". THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!

We are barely able to make 80K together, and school loans that are the reason we even make that much now eat up a good bit of that along with healthcare costs.

GOBAMA!!! I say give them a chance, can't screw it up much worse than the Repubs have already!!!

So yeah, I'd say anyone making 150K+ especially if they didn't go to college and fell into it are "rich" by my definition.

So you are saying that we should stick to what we have been doing for the past 8 years that got us to where we are today.
You are quick to say Country First but when you have to make a little sacrify like paying more tax you object. We are making 125K and I will pay more tax to get this country in the right direction again.

I like this ... not one post about Circuit City itself. Have you been in one of their stores lately? I'm sorry, but while the prices occasionally are very good, the stores aren't very attractive and the merchandise just looks shoddy, even though it's the same stuff.

Further, Best Buy has a really good loyalty program that keeps people coming back to buy stuff from them. Sometimes, not even CC's loss-leader specials are worth it in the face of that. Best Buy is in the same economic environment as Circuit City, but they're doing something that CC isn't. Maybe there's enough time for CC to figure it out.

Nice try, but, please show me where Obama has changed this definition. He has been totally consistent at the $250,000 target.

I think the American public has wised up since 2004 and will not acquiece to any more "Swift Boating" by Republicans willing to win at any cost.

In 2004, the first casualty was truth. It will not happen again in 2008.

I never liked CC anyway. Poor service and when you ask for help they acted like you were bothering them. I do all my electronic shopping at my local Best Buy. They are tidy and clean like my local Publix!

If thats what you think you have not been in this country for the last 8 years. Do you live without a tv and radio with blinders on, or are you just some church crazy that believes what the republicans tell you. The republicans have lost their moral values and sold their souls for money.

All the Circuit City employees will be okay. Jobs will be pouring back into this country as soon as Obama is elected. No one will be without a job who wants to work.

Every time I have tried to purchase someting at the Good Homes store, the LACK of customer service was always there. There were plenty of employees working, but no one would walk up and ask if they could be of assistance, this was as early as 4 weeks ago. This may be on of the reasons the store is closing. Best Buy was Happy to take my money and assist me quickly.

What's the difference between some slutty groupies at a concert (TRYING to get "back-stage") and people that follow politics? still don't know?

WTF does having gone to college have to do with it? Basically that means they worked harder and/or smarter than you. You sound quite bitter.

Uhhhh no. If you read all of my post I stated both my spouse and I are college educated.

My point was that if someone became "rich" without all those student loans over their heads (because they didn't go to school, or because of some other reason) they are even better off financially.
