    Bessy- Sorry I left you out of my first post. Try doing some research before parroting the lies of Obama and the Democrats. Ask yourself this, the state of Alabama accepted ALL of the funds of the stimulus that Obama promised would keep unemployment down, so why is unemployment rising? The state did everything that Obama and the Democrats told them to do with the stimulus money, and it failed to make a difference, but it did raise unemployment, and it did raise the national debt, and it will force states to increase taxes on EVERYONE in order to fund this newly Government mandated program when the stimulus money runs out. The days of blaming Bush and the Republicans are over as the Democrats control EVERY part of Congress and do not need the Republican vote for anything, so they are completely responsible for the failed "porkulus" bill.

    If you are a Democrat or a Republican, the cold reality is this: We all supported presidents that in fact negotiated and signed agreements to trade with other countries. The result was not a trade agreement for the American people, but rather a flood of foreign goods that destroyed the working mans way of life. I believe Ross Perot warned us of this and we ignored a good man. Now its time to be tough again and blow the dust off the word "Tarriff".

  4. Never happy

    @ German, Irish American.
    I do not think anything will make you happy and even god. Only Beck, O"reilly, Rush, and another dud at Fox news will make you happy. I am very sorry for you.

    Why not ask your Gov. because he did not need any money.

    @ the party of are correct...Those in the south that refused stimulus are hurting worse, but that's what they wanted. Gives them a reason to have the peanut gallery that comes on these boards everyday and bash this Presidency and everything he's trying to do to help everyone. If anyone thinks that doing nothing would have been a better solution, you need your head examined.

  7. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    As much as I hate to blame the former president, his redistribution of taxpayer money for tax cuts for the wealthy 1%, will make the national debt explode over the next 10 years, unless there is health reform and the tax cuts expire. Debt to GDP ratio with Bush's tax cuts beyond 2010 rises rapidly, making today's debt miniscule by comparison.

    About time to close this one, CNN. The conservatives are getting the upper hand, causing the liberals (you know, those who preach tolerance and diversity) to revert to name calling when faced with the irrefutable truth.

    Um...Last I checked unemployment went down in November...Not by much, but now that Obama cleaned up the bulk of Bush's economic disaster, the rebuilding process begins.

    Any rising in unemployment since Obama has taken office is obviously just from the "almost" economic collapse of Bush. Rome wasn't built in a day, and the economy won't recover in a day either.

    As job reports continue to flow in, we will notice small drops in unemployment...I predcit a 9.8% unemployment rate once the December job report comes out. By this time next year, unemployment will be falling at a larger rate, when you spill juice on a carpet, you need to spend more time cleaning it.

    Republicans WILL fail in 2010...

    @ James
    No one put a gun on your head and forced you to buy. trade is not a one way street. Think before what you said and do not be short sighted.

    Peter – bet you believe in Santa, too, huh? Obama's crushed the country worse, financially, economically and morally than all previous presidents combined....he wants local politicians to beg him..and when he rewards their dependence, he'll call for allegiance for his socialist agenda...libs are so stupid..

  13. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    Do Libertarians drive on public highways, go to public schools, take buses, use libraries, send mail, serve in the military, support police, support firemen, believe in government described in the constitution?

    There has to be more to their cause than starting wars.

  14. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    Name calling and lying are the two traits you can count on from right wingnuts.

  15. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    The right wingnuts are not pro-life, other wise they would not want to kill civilians in unnecessary wars. Just another contradiction in the life of a wingnut.

    Never happy- Really, you don't have to feel sorry for me, I am very happy with my family and life. Actually, I'm more than happy to point out the facts to uninformed Obama supporters because I know it drives them crazy to face the truth about their party. I'm sorry if you can't handle the facts. Bessy and The party of no falsely stated that Alabama turned down the stimulus money and blamed the Republicans. Check it out. It seems to me that the people that are really unhappy are the Obama supporters on these CNN blogs that spew their hatred and name calling towards Bush, Palin, Cheny, and any other Republican or Independent that disagrees with their opinion or the Obama talking points.

    When will the poor learn. You keep voting for Democrats, yet you remain poor and the very wealthy Democrats you vote for remain very wealthy.

  19. ACLWho?

    Here's an idea, you want help? Get out of the way of businesses that actually create jobs. Make an environment in your city that will lure business in. Government is NOT the answer.

    When you've got a crook for governor of your State you can't ask him for help because he's too deep with the crooks who got him elected.

  21. Perusing-through

    JOHN KING, ARE YOU REALLY INTERESTED IN SELMA'S ECONOMIC WOES? Or are you just finding new ways to paint Obama with negative colors for the Black community to buy?

    John King’s show is a 100% anti-Obama.
    – – 35% of the program consist of negative criticism of the Obama-Biden administration.
    – – 35% of the program is questions doubting the credibility of Obama-Biden administration, while sewing seeds of confusion.
    – – 30% of the program are Republican lies for which John King don't challenge.
    – – 0% of the programs illustrates Obama-Biden accomplishments which there is far more accomplishments in their first year, than in George W. Bush first 4-years.
