Obama is terrible, but even a Republican would be run out of town if he/she told the truth. The dollar is being crashed in a slow-motion train wreck. Our economy is being destroyed because the dollar is being destroyed and this is a Democrat AND Republican problem. "Quantitative Easing" is easing your money out of your pocket. Your cash is rapidly becoming trash.

Nice try, but Democrats have been doing this for decades, dating back to FDR. They held BOTH houses of Congress for nigh on 70 years, and Republicans, even if they had wanted to, couldn't have stopped the Democrats from passing boondoggle program after boondoggle program, wasting the taxpayer's money and ratcheting up the spending. That's where the term "tax and spend" Democrats comes from. Give the GOP both houses for a few decades and watch things turn around.

Perhaps it should be, "tax and buy." Votes, that is.
As for giving the GOP both houses for a few decades, they had it for 12 years, and lost because of percieved excessive spending. There should be a distinction between Tea Party and Republican. They overlap but they're not the same. Yet.

I think it's also because the Liberals take a long view and too many Conservatives are taking an "all or nothing" stance. If our options are to move an inch forward or stall where we're at, we should take the inch. It's because they've been doing this for decades that it's been successful.

A lady walks into a bridal store and tells the clerk she is wanting to purchase a wedding gown for her third marriage. The clerk congratulates the lady and asks what style and color she was considering? The lady said she wanted a long white gown and veil.

The clerk said he didn’t mean to be forward, however white typically represents ladies who have maintained their innocence. The lady responded she in fact had maintained her innocence. The clerk asks; how so?

The lady said her first husband tragically died of a heart attack in anticipation of the honeymoon...
