But it sure smells better that the current "Hope and Change". I hope I have a little change left in my pocket prior to election day.
It's like my wife... Everything is my fault.
People don't remember just how bad things had gotten under the last republican administration. The hole was so deep it will take years to dig out but everyone wants it fixed now. And by electing "tea party" congressman who only want everything to fail to make the president look bad... They don't care about us or the country.
AMEN! When an ideologue like Grover Norquist can command the allegiance of Republican politicians and pull the puppet strings behind the scenes, when Wall Street runs Washington, you can kiss our democracy goodbye.
Don't forget it was the democratic congress that helped get us in this mess as well. I don't see where Obama is fixing anything. Making things worse is not my idea of fixing.

As another squawker said recently, you have to give credit to the Congress for the spending situation. You claim that Clinton had a budget surplus: Well two years into his admin the Republicans got Congress (House and Senate) and there's your surplus. The last years of GW Bush had Democrats running the show, spending like methed up drunken Komrades and voila financial catastrophe triggered by the Fannie/Freddie housing mortgage collapse. Until last Fall's election, the Democrat controlled House and Senate had operated for almost three years WITHOUT ANY BUDGET AT ALL. SPEND! SPEND! SPEND! in an attempt to buy votes and get the number of dependents of the Government above 50%, thus guaranteeing the Democrats the Congress and the White House forever (or as long as the country would last which would NOT be much longer).
Hit nail on head.
You are exactly right and there is STILL no budget. Unbelievable!
