    beautifully done. Our president is tackling the important issues and there are no quick fixes. I admire his courage and intellect and I hope for the good of us all that he succeeds.

    The weight is truly on the shoulders of every tax payer….watch your wallets

    etocme, you sound like the Republicans Oliphant is lampooning. Do you have any solutions, or like the rest of the GOP, do you “Got 0 Plans”?

    We tried cutting taxes for 8 years etocme.

    It didn’t work.

    As a nation we haven’t had to truly sacrifice for the common good since the days of the Depression. When we needed to be asked, we weren’t… instead we got the GOP panacaea of lowering taxes on everyone except those best equipped to pay it, supply-side jiggery-pokery, and (nudge-nudge, wink-wink) trickle-down non-economics.

    It appears to me, that Obama, is carrying a problem he helped create, since he was in the Senate, and helped pass legislation, that is causing our problems. And unless he is superman, he couldn’t read all of the 11,000+ pages of legislation he signed. I wonder what other hooks are in it, that will cause even bigger problems. You don’t sign a contract unless you have read it all the way through. He didn’t do that. So much for intellect.

    Oliphsnt is neglecting to point out that Princess Pelosi and Rip-off Reid are preventing the Republicans from having ANY INPUT into legislation through improper and unconstitutional “legislative rules”. I THOUGHT we had a two (or more) party system, but that is not currently reality

    WillBerry – It’s always OK when the Rep’s do it… but otherwise it’s treason? http://thinkprogress.org/2009/03/24/budget-reconciliation/

    It’s obvious to anyone with a grasp on reality that the Greedy Obstructionist Party wants to sabotage any recovery so they can then blame Obama for not fixing the problems we face.

    Also, Willberry, Obama was not in the senate to vote approval of deregulation of credit default swaps, or (the right wing’s favorite scapegoat) the equality in mortgage lending laws.

    Where was Obama when Reagan was president? DON”T blame Obama for the mess that has been snowballing for decades…

    Obama should be pictured riding piggy back on a China man who is carrying the world.

    Obama has important work to offset the financial mess he inherited from the Bush administration. Let’s see if the Repubs can think of the good of the citizens rather than the 15% (base) that they pander to.
