    I predicted this mess in 2000 when "W" became President. We'd have bailouts and massive unemployment. The game is pretty much over.

    Obama is a failure alright, Limbaugh doesn't have to wish/hope for it anymore. Obama was sandbagged walking in after 8 years of Bush. I can't wait to see what Jeb tries to do ? I'd be all for 3 strikes and the Bush family is out, but a 3rd Bush, simply would be more than this nation can bear ? Oh well ?

    Essentially, the next president after Bush II was going to inherit a job & economic recession and everyone knew this. Even if McCain won the election in '08, we'd still be in this mess. The stock market would still be collapsing, unemployment would still be at its record lows and everyone would still be worried about our financial future.

    You'd think that knowing this information that people wouldn't be quick to jump to conclusions about a president's attempt at fixing the problem only 5 weeks into his presidency. Then again, we are talking about some of the hyper-conservatives on this board who think the words "tax cuts" and "earmarks" are connected to magic buttons that will automatically trigger cheers & jeers among a clueless nation that doesn't know any better. Even those who didn't like Bush didn't wish for him to fail this early in his campaign back in 2000. Nobody wanted Bush to fail the month after 9/11. We actually DID put our trust into that man for an entire term and realized his folly, hence why people were negative towards him then on. But then again, try telling that to conservatives these days who actually hope that the current administration fails. And what for? So their party can "win" in 2012, knowing that their job will be ten times worse than it is now? Or do they honestly believe that they have the magic wand to reverse decades of bad business & economic practices in a 5 week timeframe themselves? Seriously, keep running forward with the blinders on. Keep on with the negative banter, the unrealistic rants and the illogical bullshit. You'd THINK your party would have learned something after the '08 election.

    And sorry to some of the so-called "independents" that pretend to look at issues down the middle, yet lean to one side of the political spectrum more than the Eiffel Tower. You think your "party" will have a voice in 2012 if Obama doesn't turn things around in his first term, but you don't even have an official party to begin with. You can't even organize a real base under one person who doesn't fall victim to the same bullshit & rhetoric that you blame Democrats and Republicans for. Be honest with yourself and pick a side, because very few people truly live in the middle when it comes to the most serious of issues.

    Regardless of where you stand, stop with the bullshit... or drown in it. Plain & simple.

    except that if McCain was pres... he would be backing a total cessation of government spending... just like hoover did in 29.

    And would then be in shit far deeper and vastly smellier than what we now face...
