Yours was equally bad. It takes serious credulity to believe that Obama is as competent to handle anything as romney

When you say you have been hearing this "ho hum" since the 80's, are you implying the US economy is fine and there is no real threat of economic collapse in our future if deficit spending and entitlement raise to record levels? I'm just asking, not leading you or setting you up for anything.

If you are going to spend money, I do like how it benefitted the consumer and not the bank, Ron Paul actually said the same thing, he said he didn't support government spending but if it was going to be spent, at least give it to the consumer and not bi banks. I also like how they cut spending across the board and I would support higher taxes on the wealthy IF spending would be dramatically curbed but I think overall the tax system needs to be abandoned and a new one created.
I just cant get behind government seizing banks b/c of something they helped create (in the US at least) and just sweeping debts owed under the rug. Could you imagine what would happen if the US said, "meh, I don't think we should have to pay you?"
