Nice. Anyone notice the FRIDAY INFO DUMP by the whitehouse which ACKNOWLEDGED that Joe Wilson was right?

Joe "You Lie!" Wilson was correct, and the WH CONFIRMED that government funds WOULD cover illegal workers here?

Myyyyyy myyyyyyyyyyy, lets chastise someone SOME MORE for telling the TRUTH about Obama.

How do those left winger nut jobs feel NOW, huh?

Might be that some of the republicans ARE CORRECT?

Obama moving toward tariffs is not a good idea.

That is how WARS were started in the past.

Tariffs are bad, they hurt us, and the economy.

Look at HARLEY, who had "Protection" - HOW MANY of you, can actually AFFORD a harley, huh?

THAT'S what protectionism leads to. Products you can't afford.

Are you ready for new tires to be SO expensive, you can't afford them?

How about a RADIO that you can't afford? That new cell phone you purchase every other year, you ready to pay 4xs as MUCH for it?

It will stifle innovation, competition, and consumer participation.

These democrats just keep doing EVERYTHING WRONG.

Vote them out in the next election. Get rid of EVERY single one of them. Right

Get rid of them, send them home, and clear their "benches" - the up and coming democrats.

Send them a message in 2010. NO MORE.

Your posts make absolutely no sense.

He is attacking business on all fronts. He cant be that uninformed, its like he is trying to shut down this entire country and bring it to its knees. If he is then he is doing this on purpose to remake America. Is this what he meant by change??

A Lawyer from ACORN would do things like this,Give the Whores of labor legitmancy!...,Lke mentioned its not the tires,its once again ,the UNIONS...Once again its not the countries interests,,but the special interests...Orgonized labor . As always ,he must knuckle under to them...they,unions, use a form of Blackmail,
You do this for me and I'll do that for you.
You grease my palm I'll grease yours.

Its OK its Politics...and Obama is a player.

Like Government Motors!..Union controlled cash machine for unions ,not for the country's interest!

Its Politics...Its not the interest of the country he has in mind,but rather his own agenda.

He is covering all the bases here...for his Health Care..once again not for the public, for the majority,do not want his change,but rather for his obligation to his extreme left liberal base...

Obama never did have the quilty of leadership to go counter the Wrong,as apposed to the things that are right...no "Profile in Courage" here.No Way....A President controlled by his party.

He seems to be totally controlled by the extreme element in his party....a good performer,a good speech reader,written buy others,however .However .he is no leader!

At the next trade summit he will once again say to them he favors world trade,but now they will know he does not...Again Obamas continued trait comes out..HYPOCRATE!!over and over..HYPOCRATE!!

Just one more political animal,in black face.A tax and spend run of the mill Democrat,,beholding to special interests,Anti Business,..UNIONS HAVE OBAMAS PECKER IN THEIR POCKET!!...partly because he gave it to them!!

He will,and his party will pay in the next elections....AMEN!!!

We need to put MORE TARIFFS on that overseas stuff and make more of our own products. China can do the tires, big deal-- but put a tarrif on them. GREAT! LOVE IT!

France says their country will put a tax on goods they import from countries that refuse to use clean air methods(low carbon emissions) in the industry producing the products. More Tariffs on things coming from China. Great!!

You don't know what he promised the unions for their support.

We now know that the health care reform is about unionizing all health care workers.

If the union stooges would stop demanding $45/hour and full benefits right down to the hangnail just to spin some hot rubber in a mold we could make more of our own products.

I actually support this decision by Obama.

He may have only made it to help pass ObamaCare but protecting American jobs is still not a bad idea.
