Will the press, now that their guy is back in, start asking him questions?

What will he say if unemployment goes back up above 8%?
Will they ask about Benghazi?
Will they now equate Sandy with Katrina?

If taxes go way up and the economy starts dumping jobs again, will it still be Bushs fault or now the Pubs in Congress? I wish I owned a prepper supply store for the next few months.

Maybe debt means nothing, if so, we on this side of the aisle have it wrong. Heck, I might shut my business down and just go on disability. Would be much easier than trying to keep my business afloat in these economic times. But, if debt does matter, then we are in a heep of poo.

It doesn't matter. America is so polarized now, aside from issues that strip us of constitutional rights, which lawmakers can agree on, everyone has their heels dug in. I don't see how things will magically fix themselves over the next 4 years, I just see things getting worse off.

Maybe Obama will change and come to the middle. Clinton did. People hated Clinton every bit as much as they hate Obama now. Now he's becoming one of the most popular presidents we ever had.

I just don't see it in this guy. Like most liberals, he always thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.

iam serious when i say this, fiscally, the US has barely 2 years to fix some things or monetarily speaking it's going to spin out into orbit so fast it will make 2008 seem like the go go 90's of investing.

add a gridlocked congress with the prez and i just wonder where the revenue is going to come from. the jobs have to start rolling in monthly and exceed 100k by mid April next year or the replenishing of jobs won't happen fast enough. 100k is a my low ball # as well.


So does Congress yet again buckle to pressure from the Fed and the big banks to rescue them if another too big to fail financial crisis comes to pass?

They were reluctant to help out the last time.

Will the US even be financially capable of staving off that disaster if it should happen again?

Knowing what they know now, does Congress just let these institutions fail and take a more free market approach/survival of the fittest?

If they do, what are the chances of BofA and Citi surviving? Charlotte would be especially hard hit in this scenario.

25 percent unemployment seems within the realm of possibilities, great depression numbers.

Reagan and Tip O'Neill worked together for the betterment of the country.

Barack Obama. Boehner said "You've got to quit spending, Mr. President." Obama said "Bitch, please."
