"Well, last I heard when someone earns their money, it is up to them how they decide to spend it."
Last I heard, the government pays themselves first with your money, they decide how much you have left.

"Obama saved our one remaining basic industry, and that alone puts him in a very small club — with George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and F.D. Roosevelt — of truly great American presidents."- Paul Bartlett, St. Paul

Gee, Paul, I didn't know that George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and FDR confiscated American car companies to save the jobs of United Auto Workers in order to perpetuate the Union's support of the President and his political cronies. What were auto companies that George, Abe, and Frank saved?

" I guess a person who has suffered the remorse and indignity of the consequences of his actions, not to mention paid his dues to society, still has to have his reputation maligned by the righteous just in case someone out there missed it the first time." - Susan Ofstehage, South St. Paul

That's pretty much how it works, Susan. Just ask Tom Emmer.

"Every American who really gives a damn about our country should say a prayer of thanks that this man occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

No, Paul, this is incorrect. Because these days, most Americans are praying just the opposite.

I am sure all those Tea Party hicks are sure GOD is on their side too because only THEY will enter Heaven. Bush was their choice and all he did was start two phoney wars and destroy the economy. LOSERS.

I'm not sure which one of the stories the posters above me where referring to, but here are my thoughts for Former Ranger. We keep hearing how government should be run like a business from conservatives. Well, businesses always run for a profit; therefore, if tbe government is raising money by taxing us that shouldn't be much more different than the car washer charging me a fee for washing my car. You can't have it both ways. My memo to Gndydncr is this - no, in an ordinary economy you hope the American Government doesn't have to take over a company to save millions of jobs, HOWEVER, this ain't no ordinary economy, the jobless rate is at 10%, and businesses great and small are not coming to the public's rescue. So far, Obama did that. You can't have it both ways either. Either some one SAVES jobs, or you don't, and you let people go broke. My thoughts to Really are this, if every one is praying Obama leaves the White House, they must be praying for hell, because near as I can tell, nobody seems to have a clue about getting the economy going again. Sure, we could follow the Republicans' idea of more tax cuts (which we may any way), but honestly, taxes still haven't gone up yet, and we're no closer to getting the bozos that are running these businesses to create more jobs or more wealth. Sure, we could cut more services to people, but that only fixes the government deficit problem. It does nothing for the unemployed index (standing at 10%), or GDP (losing productivity because there are no workers producing work), or stimulate the economy (have you heard of the retail industry? They depend on government workers and welfare recipients income in case you didn't know). The question, at this point, isn't about Obama's leadership. The question is, DOES ANYBODY OUT THERE HAVE ANY NEW IDEAS THAT MIGHT GET THIS COUNTRY GOING AGAIN? The answer thus far is a resounding no.

I read GreatAmericanDebate's post above with some difficulty. Not because I don't agree with it; I do, but because, sir or madam G.A.D., PARAGRAPHS ARE YOUR FRIENDS, and you shouldn't ignore your friends.

Your problem is that you're not listening.

Hey Susan Ofstehage or South St. Paul, do you think Walter Awada is pleased that you wrote the letter to the editor that directed people to a little blurb by Kathie Jenkins that mentioned that he was convicted in 2003 of six counts of money laundering? I'm sure there are many people that missed it the first time around, but thanks to your letter were made aware of Walter's legal difficulties. With friends like you, who needs enemies?
