    It amazes me that politicians in Washington are so out of touch to think that us “regular folks” don’t realize that we are totally aware how full of crap they are. Somehow they think we are so naive as to believe all the absolute lies and double talk they put out on a regular basis. It is pathetic.

    It’s gotten to the point where the only difference between the parties is whether you have a *D, or an *R after your name in the news reports detailing your latest scandal/press conference/denial/announcement…

    Yeah. The Pres has nothing to do with a better economy, but everything to do when it’s in the tank. Stock market all time high, housing and manufacturing recovering, low interest rates, unemployment coming back. Remind me again how we got here?

    Term limits would fix this. Senate should have two terms and the house should have only three terms. Then they go home and try to make an honest living.

    Then, without institutional memory in Congress, the bureaucrats run the government. Sequestration will be like an avalanche. It starts slowly and builds. And once started, its a bugger to stop.

    Although we should be interested in how we got here so that those errors are not repeated, those errors are of no current importance. What is of importance is getting to where we want to be. The Congress and the President are not doing a very good job of getting us there. By implementing the policies they have, they have kept unemployment at 7.8% or 7.9% for the past five months (February numbers not yet published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics). GDP growth rate for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 0.1%. The housing recovery numbers are deceitful because those numbers are being driven by big investors turning properties into rentals, not regular people buying housing.

    The simple minded stupidity of the currently elected Washington officials in believing that the parameters set in the Budget Control Act of 2011 ((Pub.L. 112–25) would never come into effect is unconscionable . Well, now they are all scrambling to say "I actually opposed sequester and thought sequester would never happen so I voted for it anyway. " Kind of like “I think I’ll stand on the edge of this cliff. A gust of wind will never blow me over the edge!” Sequester as a contingency plan was witless.

    Agree with Mikefive to a certain extent. More should have been done by both sides for the economy when Obama first took office. But it was still the Republicans who said their object was not to help the country recover, but to make sure Obama was a one term President. They’ve backed themselves into a corner, with no good way out, so they blame Obama for helping them get there.

    @edinbaltimore

    OK, you got here by printing money at the fed and infusing it into the market. It’s a “bubble” that will eventually burst resulting in high interest rates, lower value on the dollar (less purchasing power) a whopping increase in the “service” on accumulated debt and the end of the weakest recovery in history.

    buy gold.

    Or sugar.

    Or coffee.

    Or tobacco

    Or fine whiskey and wine.

    You could be the next Kennedy……….LOL

    Why quibble about the “reasonjustification” for the statement, when the meat of the remark concerned assuring the “one term presidency”, as it did? And, as some 4 years of the “Party of NO!” – sometimes also known as the “Party of Hell NO!” – persistently and continuously refused every effort made to “cross the aisle(s)”, and actually attempt to “govern”, instead of being merely obstructive, proved it to be.

    Your remarks about “happiness” may be pertinent, in a course of therapy; but they are meaningless when offered as an excuse to refuse to face up to reality, as you seem to always prefer to do. One doesn’t need to “hate” anyone in pointing out historical FACTS! And, the FACTS, speak for themselves, as the Congressional gridlock testifies, for years now.

    @ansonia

    Yeah, I did some searching as well and found no record of that particular statement. There were plenty of statements recorded of the “make him a one term president” type.

    @Sharuniboy

    Yes, why “quibble”. Just abandon your principles and agree to whatever Obama wants.
