    Tom tells it true.

    The shoes on Mitt look like clown shoes – wonder why?

    Obama unable to live up to expectations, Romney unable to live down the GOP record.

    Classic dilemma. One doctor says you’re still sick because you haven’t taken enough of the medicine, the other that you’re still sick because you’ve taken too much medicine. Given that dilemma, let me see a show of hands: how many of you would give up your medication, and how many of you would increase the dosage? And how much of your decision would be determined by how much you like and/or trust each of these two doctors?

    I wish I knew what the best economic policy would be. I wish I knew how much the present generation of office holders, of whichever party, is even able to effect any of this, and how much we are in the grip of forces larger than those with which Washington can deal. I don’t.

    So I am left with supporting that party that seems most intent on supporting Liberty, Equality, and Human Rights, who seem actually to strive to “form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

    Things are going so well that the fed is now threatening yet another stimulus. Whew! Good job there.

    No Walrus, one congressman did not cause the bust. It was the policies he pushed that created the conditions and opened the door for the greed of mortgage brokers and bankers, and allowing Fannie May, and Freddie Mac to get stupid. Whether Franks pushed those policies for the benefit of the mortgage industry or the American people we will probably never know. It was just another government program that fell through its butt because of not considering the consequences of putting a policy in place. Unconsidered consequences seem to bite congressmen a lot.

    Another Republican attempt to re-write history… How’s the “We won Vietnam!” thing working out for ya?

    Barney’s bill just said not to redline neighborhoods despite the borrower’s credit.

    Much more responsible for the bust were 1) deregulating the banks
    2) the banks no longer holding any of the loans they originated, so they didn’t care about the quality.
    3) the banks coming up with a derivative structure that amounted to legalized gambling with other people’s money.
    4) Not being satisfied with #3, they started rigging their derivatives like timebombs so they could bet against them

    The democratic party would be forced to arrest themselves and that will never happen.

    Strange, I looked it up, and it was not, it was the current head of the banking committee and he is a democrat.

    @meetinthemiddle

    You mean the war where our troops were hampered by idiotic rules of engagement that were unrealistic, forced upon them by the liberals and democrats? The same rules forced upon our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan by the same politcial party?

    No, Zoid. It wasn’t the rules of engagement, and any serious military historian could tell you that. You think maybe if we’d been allowed to kill more civilians, maybe waterboard them; they’d have come over to your side? You have no idea what it would be like to be invaded. If a south-east Asian nation offered to bomb American cities to save us from a government that wants to make health insurance affordable, would you take them flowers and join their army?

    It sounds like you are happy that Mitch has been keeping his promise to block Obama’s every move. “We must make sure Obama is a one term president,”

    @mikefive

    And that was with a Republican Congress and president.

    Seven great years and all anyone on the left remembers is the last 9 months.

    You are a Libertarian then. We don not stand a chance.

    Barny was never the President or a banker. Read a news paper
