And don't forget in the GM bailout one of the biggest buyers of their cars was the government. So taxpayers game money to GM to keep them afloat and then paid for the cars that we already paid for with the bailout. And remember all the cars that were found that the government bought and never used? Kind of like when one agency signed a lease for office space and then got another lease elsewhere at a better rate and said "look at all the money we saved our department of the government" and forgetting to mention that the government still has to pay for the original leased space until they sublet it or the lease expires. Thanks to you and the rest of the columnists at Townhall who have kept us appraised of the idiocy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

supercarp: I have not seen a lurch to the left. Obama by any intelligent measurement is a moderate. I am not a Republican or a Democrat because I have severe issues with both parties. One of the worst things that both parties do is what is demonstrated here: demonization and hyperbole with very little fact. Congress has done nothing but block the country's forward movement on nearly every front. The only bills they can pass are bills that forbid the passage of other bills. - Country Infected with Virus Democratus Dear Comrade Devil Demon of the Lower Regions of Hell, Is there a Moron Party then? Because you should either join it or form it. You too can find instructions about forming your own political party by going here:http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Political-Party Once done, report back to us, but, not too soon. Take a few years. About the only thing slimier than a liberal is a liberal who tries to hide it by pretending to be independent. I know you find this hard to believe but the country can do quite a bit without an Act of Congress. And also to David 4 who wrote about rich people still giving to charity just a little less David4 wrote: I agree with the direction of Ransom's article, but I wish for a rewrite, to get the descriptions right. For example, on capping charitable deductions, the rich will still give to the charities, but not so much, more from the heart and less with one eye on their wallet and the other on the taxman. Those eyeballs will be looking for other ways to avoid taxes (, which they may not find). Result is a bit less for charities, more attention to whether the contributor really likes the charity, and more FAIRNESS; generally an improvement over today's tax-results. - A Tax Increase For Every Home Dear Comrade 4, Suck... That’s Swedish for “Sigh.” Or American for Comrade 4. FAIRNESS? You don’t even understand what fairness means. Or math. Or gravity. Or reality. Or even eyeballs, apparently. You didn’t happen by chance to vote twice, did you? Because if that’s the case, I have a new understanding of our problems as a country

I think we get rid of Senators and Presidents. THe House of Reps writes laws and the Judiciary tell them if they are legal before they are passed and sign off on them. The Speaker of the House and Speak to everyone on behalf of the country. Also, the House shouldn't be allowed to pass more than one or 2 laws per year and have to have them approved by the Governor's of the states. The focus in Washington should be the army and the top of each armed forces reports to the House. Anyone appointed to a position in the government must have credentials that prove they are capable to do their job. If any official oversteps their authority immediately fired. So 2 houses of Government should do it. I think we can come up with a figure head who speaks wells and talks to dignataries etc, but who has no authority to do anything than to make nice - kind of like an ambasassador. The PResident should be like the Queen of England - simply a figurehead - and unlike the queen can be replaced at a moment's notice by Congress. All laws passed by the Congress must be complete, with no parts to be filled in later like with Obamacare. If a law is over 100 pages it's too big and has to start over. It can't be that difficult. Let's stop making new laws and work on enforcing the ones we have are doing away with ones that don't work. Time to clean up in washington and time to stop 'investing in Green Energy and invest in economical energy. Let's get some people who can put all of this in laymen terms so that even the most ignorant liberal can understand.

John, you had me laughing outloud to myself reading your answers to the Liberals who show how very stupid they really are about finances, taxes most everything. With the way things have been going it's been a long time since I had a good laugh. It's been so depressing to know friends who have been unemployeed for years, some are still trying, a friends husband was laid of recently and she was laid off about 2 months ago ( in California which makes sense since they are the poster child for stupid liberal government decisions) Anyway, thanks for cheering me up in a dismal economy, and knowing that my complaining about this administration may lead to an audit in the near future.
we now know the reason this administration wanted to get rid of our right to bear arms as quickly as possible and why he has practiced using drones to kill any that the government determines is a threat to the country and have admitted to killing 4 American's with drones thus far in foreign countries. Four American citizen's who were denied due process, unlike the non-American's our President wants to give US due process to, even though they are enemy combatants.

I think BHO is most like FDR who used the IRS to target his opposition in the Congress with audits etc. FDR used stimulus money in states that were a toss up and secured his victory. After the election the money dried up and the people who go jobs right before the election lost them right after. Also, many of BHO's plans to improve the economy are no better than the New Deal plans that only made the depression worse. The Only difference is that FDR was able to relate to the people through his fireside chats. But both me thought a lot of themselves and wanted to make sure everyone knew how very special they were/are. Time will be the judge and it doesn't look like time is going to be too kind to Obahhma.
Well said. That's why Obama said he's not concerned about the debt ceiling. I didn't know that the Fed Reserve could print as much money as they wanted. Silly me for thinking there was a limit on something as important as that. But since there is nothing backing our money (gold or silver) I guess what does it matter. Money is backed by the promise that the American people will work for the Federal Government each year in order to pay off our debtor's. What year do you think Americans will need to start working 12 months a year for the Government to pay our debts?
I didn't like John McCain, but thought Obama was worse, now I'm not so sure. Seem to be cut from the same cloth. The one thing I thought McCain had that Obama didn't was at least he had military experience which when you consider the most important job of the President is being commander and chief of the army and navy.
He should be impeached regardless of what the Senate would do. The House should do their job and Eric Holder should have been fired or impeached after he dismissed the charges against the New Black Panther members who intimidated white voters in 2008. It was an open and shut case as the evidence was caught on tape. When the head of the department of Justice violates justice they should be relieved of their duties. His obstruction of Justice contempt charge should have been issued much sooner and impeachment proceedings started when he refused to provide the Congressional Oversight committee with the records requested for Fast and Furious.
Well said John, and that is the basic difference between Conservative and Liberal. Conservatives see individuals who need to be responsible for their own choices, who are rewarded for hard work, and innovative ideas. Liberals see Union's and Corporations, rewarding one group as fair because all are paid the same over the other that reward personal achievements. Liberals see Blacks, Whites, Hispanics Asian, women, men, gay straight and base hiring practices based on a diversity of all groups rather than hiring individuals based on experience and abilities.
