    My hat off to you Mr. President. Just drop the ink in that bill. Am very, very, very proud of you as you are changing according to time. "YOU ARE REALLY A MAN OF CHANGE!" You were clever enough to understand before anybody what Nov. results brought to all of us. Keep it up and we are behind you. We will support as far as you want us to do so!

    This must have been tough for our president to swallow. The vitriolic response from some of the more liberal Democrats in Congress and especially from the liberal citizenry on the "internets" is remarkable. Seems everyone wants compromise as long as they don't personally have to do any compromising. Well, the president is a little more pragmatic these days (I wonder why), and he gets a thumbs-up from me on this one.

    Liberals, you are a minority, and a fairly small one at that. Although the consensus among your little circle would seem to indicate otherwise, most people in the United States do not see things the same way you do. Reality check.

  6. Democrats Class Warfare - Destroying the economy and country

    If this idiot had done this when he first took office the economy would be going full speed right now. Instead trillions were wasted on pork, union handouts, and phoney stimulus BS. A year was wasted on Obozocare which is another financial disaster laid on the American people.

    When Obama reaches across the aisle he will be pleased with what he finds. In this case, he will begin to realize the economic recovery and jobs that have been so elusive so far. We all benefit, especially those who want to find jobs but have been only on a seemingly endless ride of extended unemployment benefits. It's time to put Americans back to work.
