    The whole country loses when Barack Obama gets his way. Politics is a popularity contest driven by money and shady under-the-table deals. The bigger the government, the smaller the rights of the people.

    Despite the understandable angst of the conservative commentators above, Ms. Benson fails to show the elephant standing on the other side of the stage waiting impatiently for their dance with Ms. Hippo(crasy). While I agree D’s are terrible about giving the debt the attention it deserves, R’s have historically campaigned against big government before getting into power and creating their own increases to the gov’t spending. Usually in the form of military contracts and gov’t funded projects to the home districts of those who have been friendly to R social issues.
    If you want to see real reductions in gov’t spending before attacking all of the thorny issues with which our legislators play dodge ball – medicare, social security, et al – put more inspectors, auditors, accountants, efficiency experts, etc. into the field and give them the tools to force regulations and guidelines to be enforced vigorously. Making companies who are extracting minerals and gas from public lands pay the same price they would have to pay if they were mining private lands would also be useful. I still support a .0001% tax on stock trades, especially where hyper trading is concerned. While it is a negligible tax over all, it would provide a great deal of income and reduce the volatility we see in markets.
    However, on a hopeful note…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV-Z1YwaOiw
    Ms. Lee Ann Womack’s, I Hope You Dance.
    Hopefully,
    & ever Respectfully,

    The Democrats believe government should be an all-powerful monolithic entity. Republicans disagree, because that’s the job for the church.

    “Politics is a popularity contest driven by money and shady under-the-table deals. "
    So how did your side lose then? They had the money, they had the corporate “persons” spending freely, they had the monopoly on shady under-the-table deals. And yet they still lost. Hmm, go figure. I guess the voters just weren’t buying the cr@p you were selling.

    For a reality check, the Cons should compare the growth of the federal budget under Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Shrub, and Obama.

    Oh!!! Excuse me, the Cons don’t need facts, they get their instructions from Rush and Glenn.

    - Big Government (of the people, by the people) to fight Big Business (of the CEOs by the CEOs)

    - Officially, President Obama will be the best US President since FDR on 2017. Unofficially, he already is.

    Oddly enough the largest expansion in the Federal Government in the last 12 years was under, oh what’s his name, oh yeah GEORGE WALKER BUSH.
