Somebody please call the Goofball in Chief and tell him the US doesn't have $2 billion. Oh, if he wants the Fed to just print some green ink on paper, sure, he'll have his $2 billion. It will inflate the currency, though, and make the dollars in your paycheck worth less - assuming you still have a job.

This nimrod of a president proposes this while telling us that he has a master's degree in business administration. And others tell us we should elect Romney because he also has business experience.

Looks to me like all this business experience in Washington has just about finished the US off.

Vote Ron Paul in 2008. Do something for your country. Just this once.

What an appalling waste of good money throwing it at a mirage

Gee $2billion could be much better spent on the following;

Feeding the starving in Haiti for an extended period - Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world and is on Americas doorstep. The ecofundamentalists like Albore in their private jets are probably lecturing these starving people bout how not to use firewood to keep warm because its bad for the environment.

But then most of that $2billion will probably go on the cocktail sipping lavish Bali type conferences (that generate a carbon footprint bigger than Haiti) of the green rich who don't give a stuff about the environment, otherwise they would listen to it and see that it does not support their climate model lies.

What a waste. We could invade three more countries with this money.

Is this what was known as a 'flip-flop' back in the Kerry days?

Bush will be remembered as the worst president in history, and should be tried for treason.

A perfect ending to the Bush years.
Cheney has a terminal heart attack listening to Bush's drivel during State of the Union speech.
The mind probe in Bush's head malfunctions, and he gets stuck on an endless "Make the tax cuts permanent" loop.
Nancy Pilocy slaps the stupid out of him.
All Pro-war Republicans are forced to send a child to Mosul.
Carl Rove is caught getting boned by Dog the Bounty hunter.
And all lived hapily ever after.

Why Haiti? Why not somewhere even closer to home, like New Orleans?

And not everyone that is concerned with the state of the environment is a rich hypocrite. Some of us are normal people with normal lives. Maybe global warming is a hoax, I don´t know.

But I do know how fucked up the rivers and lakes are in my homestate. I do know how much smog hovers over LA and Beijing. And I do know that no matter how much oil there is on this planet, it is not enough that we can just keep burning it forever. I do know that 7% growth in unsustainable, and I don´t need Al Gore to tell me all that.

We´re not all alarmists and hyporicical iditos. Some of us are just concerned.

Concern misplaced is better left unplaced, as it does little good in either case.

Let's read this $2B for what it is - a vain attempt to placate the global warming crowd, nothing more.

neither was Hiroshima, but that was knocked down in a second - and all the global warmies will do is ruin our economy trying to perform the biggest magic trick since King Canute tried to order the tide not to come in. HOW is wasting $2 billion on Al Gore's pet crazies going to stop a natural process?

It doesn´t seem very conservative, does it? Then again, taking the most vacation time of any president ever, durring a war, doesn´t seem to make much sense either.

so, he will have congress borrow more that our kids will get stuck paying back, but he offers no leadership, no solutions, no urge to conserve, no thoughts on the issue.... just more borrowed money. What a sad, pathetic vapid little boy.

So as long as we join the "do something" crowd, even if it accomplishes nothing, all is right with the world. Okay, count me in.
