    George’s legacy will last a long time – a president so incompetent he almost destroyed economies. The question now is whether congress will co-operate in the recovery.

    Gypsy, whether or not I agree with you…(and I do)
    That was then, this is now.
    No matter who left the water on in the tub, it’s going to take both parties and a whole nation of citizens to mop up the mess. Every time a person points to the past, they fail to look to the future. The past is a source of information, it tells us what we did that worked or didn’t work. The future is where we put those lessons to work.
    This is where we are NOW. What will those we’ve elected, PARTICULARLY the legislature, do to move us forward.

    The REAL effort, and change, needs to be from MR. Boehner, and Senator McConnell, to finally lead with some dignity, and intelligence, lacking for the last four years.

    Who are the intelligent, educated moderates of the Republican party? I’m not saying there are none, I just want to know who they are, and where they were in the last election cycle. I heard David Frum (arguing against Mary Matalin) last night, and I heard Condoliza Rice this morning, both of them saying that the party needs to open up to the changing demographic, but neither one saying that they need to change any fundamental policy.

    Libs: “Bush was so powerful, he left a legacy Obama can never reverse.”

    Conservatives: “Libs had too much XTC in college.”

    The reality is too obvious.

    “…..Raising taxes on people over $250,000 is stupid……”
    So you want to safeguard the income of the wealthy, despite a burgeoning deficit, ongoing foreign wars at $2 billion per week, and a multitude of committed spending. That’s safeguarding the income of Buffet, Gates, Trump, every player in the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB, every movie star, most hedge fund managers, most congressmen, and on and on. Some, like Buffet, Gates, and others want to pay more taxes because they are smart people and realize it is necessary for the good of the nation. You, who I presume is not a rich man, want to safeguard the income of the rich for what reason – so you and the middle class can pay more? Or no one pays and the nation goes bankrupt? Its beyond bizarre, its incredibly stupid.

    You miss the entire point of the structure of the republic. Obama as president traditionally sets a direction and proposes programs. He is but one (albeit powerful) arm of our government. Ried, McConnell, Boehner, and Pelosi are leaders of their party within their legislative bodies. They represent the embodiment of the people in introducing their own programs, changing ones the president puts forth or denying him altogether. That is the way (simplistic view) that it is supposed to work in our Constitutional Republic.

    Not because he wanted to but because it was part of a compromise deal to get through a number of other tax relief measures for the middle class.

    George? Sorry Gypsy8 but you have to go a lot further back than that. Try Regan, he’s the one who “sold the family silverware”, deregulated Wall Street and took the US (who was a creditor nation) and turned it into a debtor nation. The presidents since then have just been trying to shore up the house of cards, when it comes crashing down, look out.

    We don’t have an income problem. We have a spending problem. Stop the spending – Duh! Question: how many of you submitters are debt free – I’ll bet few or none.

    “….Duh! Question: how many of you submitters are debt free – I’ll bet few or none…..”
    I’ve been debt free for 30 years, pay cash for everything or zero my credit card at the end of the month. I believe you live better if you’re not paying interest. Why, is that unusual?
    You have a problem of priorities on spending (too much on the military & stupid wars), and insufficient income (Too low taxes on the wealthy). And you’re heading for the bone-yard of failed nations unless you get serious about these problems.

    @Gypsy8 – Excellent – good for you. Then you know exactly what I am talking about. We have been debt free for 10 years – what a wonderful feeling. We don’t drive expensive showoff cars or live in a mansion but we have fun every day knowing that we do not need to make some silly payments. Now, if we can just change the mindset of the country to do the same. But truthfully, the downside of that would be that the economy would tank with people buys less stuff.
    But at any rate, yes, the US has a spending problem and we see not sign that it will get better.

    Voila – you have discovered true freedom. None of this George Bush BS about it being your patriotic duty to go to the malls and shop.

    " It is now an argument between intelligent, educated moderates of both parties against the ignorant hard-right lunatic fringe."
    You had it right up till the very end. Your pointing here to the ’right" lunatic fringe lumps you right into that group with the blinders that continue to block any kind of progress in this country. Until people like you can see that the left and right both have lunatic fringes blocking progress then you will continue to be part of the problem and not part of the solution.
