Two years ago we heard alot…but have not seen improvement other than lots of spending.

Cheney the magic neocon, cold never do any wrong,
His Iraq fight was alright, cause Rumsfield told him so.
When Wilson debunked yellowcake, Plame was given up,
Cheney speaks cause Pelosi’s weak and let the treason go.

She and Reid are awful and should be replaced. Can you say Lewis and McCaskill anyone?

Pelosi needs to get busy herself! She and Reid talked alot the last 2 years but got NOTHING done for the American voter/people…The approval ratings for Congress is at 9%—in no small measure accountable to the ‘do nothing of leadership’! Obama can not carry the whole change for them—they must must do the job elected to do…Forget the OLD PROTOCAL—-get it done !

Example; Carly Fiorina, former head of Hewlett Packard and McCain financial advisor. While head of HP Fiorina hid $17 Billion in HP assets in off shore banks to avoid taxes. After she was fired for incompetence she walked away with a $24 million severance. How many HP employees could have kept their jobs if her severance had been more reasonable? How much money would have gone into federal coffers if she had not hidden the $17 billion?
These are the things that the Obama admin. is looking at not an across the board reduction in taxes, and by the way, eight years ago we as a nation were operating in the black. It only took Bush two years to erase a surplus and put us in debt.

To reduce taxes but increase expenditures is a fallacy that cannot continue to occur. In order to correct the problems we are facing as a nation at this time we must reduce the national debt. This means that taxes cannot continue to be reduced. American currently is the worlds largest debtor nation.

Pelosi doesn’t represent the majority in this country. She is merely a liberal from San Francisco.

Even Obama is distancing himself from Pelosi and Reid, because they are a couple of chumps.
