Tip O' the Day for Japan:

Don't Follow Obama's Disaster. Simply look to China for proof of what to do. Look at Obama as what NOT to Do.

Success can be yours.

Your forgetting that the "Obama Disaster" was cause by the past 20 or so years of dumb redneck presidents and he is just trying to clean up the mess. I'm amazed at how many Racist people their still are in the country.

Good try on the race card, but critisizing your government is not racism. I have yet to read one single racist comment from TLL. He's usually hammer on nail.

People simply use governmental issues to express their racism. Its the Rush Limbaugh complex.

Even if we elected MacCain we would still be in this same mess, or knowing him and Palin probably worse.

Yeah let us look to China. Toxins in baby food, pet food and children's toys. Soaring polution levels. Poor working conditions on top of even worse wages. Yup...good idea, follow China's example.

Ron Paul would have been in the same boat. Hell even if we elected Stephen Hawking we'd still be in the toilet because this doesn't happen over night. The economy like bureaucracy has a definitive lag in the time between cause and effect. The effects usally don't happen til after the guy who caused them (or in this case both of them) and the next guy in line gets egg on his face. Example: Regan started the black market arms dealing to arm Afghanistan, and as a result Bush/Clinton had to deal with the gulf war. Regan made the mistake and Bush got blamed for it.

Bush worked hard to improve the economy after Regan all but bent it over the the Oval office desk and ass raped it. What happened? Clinton got the credit because the economy picked up and unemployment went down. Bush did the work Clinton got the credit.

See? People just don't understand how their own system works.
