    If you can get 2 economists to agree, then they’re wrong.

    Actually, both economists are right for today’s complex situation. We have a huge deficit that will continue to grow so long as our federal government continues to spend money like a whole fleet of drunken sailors. On the other hand the economy is improving. Here’s the catch. The economy is improving for Wall Street while Main Street remains unemployed and is charged with paying back what the federal government spends. Who’s at fault for this? Don’t blame Bush and don’t blame Obama [they’re both Progressives and what one started the other made worse]. We can only blame ourselves for electing these idiots in the first place. They wouldn’t be there if we hadn’t elected them. Frankly, I seriously doubt the ability of the American public to make an informed, intelligent decision on who to elect to high office. Wake up people! If you don’t take back your country you will most certainly lose it and deservedly so.

    It’s a vicious cycle. Even as we may throw a few out like Sen Ted Stevens there are more nitwits eager to take there place & suck up to lobbyists & screw the average Joe. Obama did show real promise but has definitely been a disappointment. I keep hoping & praying but have better odds of winning the state lottery

    Think two economists on a crowded lifeboat, limited supplies, gullible fellow passengers…not a pretty picture, is it?

    jrbj is absolutely right. We were stupid (not a word I use lightly) enough to elect Bush a second time.

    Obama had no real promise. He rode in on ‘the cult of personality’. He gave the impression of having something to offer. It’s amazing to me that so few people could see through him.

    About the strip: Now that’s just too scary. But not nearly as scary as the gullibility of the American voter.

    I continue to be fascinated by how these older strips still continue to be currently relevant.

    The horrors of Sunday morning television.

    I’m not blaming Obama for state of the Union, but the ‘blind’ voters that have no idea what this country needs, and are willing to be led by the blind. Looking back at the field of choices, in recent elections, we could have done worse. This trend didn’t start with Obama or Bush.

    And I still can’t get over the fact that Bush got a second term. Fool me once…
