Comments on: Stimulus cash not so bad after all, some find http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/20/stimulus-cash-not-so-bad-after-all-some-find-2/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TC http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/20/stimulus-cash-not-so-bad-after-all-some-find-2/comment-page-1/#comment-389262 Wed, 25 Feb 2009 01:17:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=16020#comment-389262 SF. With only 52 percent of the vote, there is no mandate. Nearly half the country does not want his brand of change.

Say what you want, but the current liberal political majority (the country is still just right of center) won’t last.

Whenever this happens, those who side in with the majority say the other side is dead. It isn’t and it won’t take long for the conservatives to come back and lead this country to true financial and military strength in this dangerous world. Micheal Steele was an excellent choice to lead the charge. If you have ever heard the man speak, you would realize he speaks for the majority of this country.

We elected a man who will, and is, doing things differently. Whether or not you agree with everything he does, he is moving us forward with a transparency & accountability that has been entirely absent from our Country’s leaders for the last 8 years.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect Utopia in WashDC, & I know corruption exists on both sides of the aisle.

But if you can’t see that these backwards fatcats to quote Stine here, ‘playing games with people’s lives’ are on their way out, you’re not paying attention.

This isn’t Obama’s mandate, it’s America’s.

Accountability, really? We are bailing out people who are the antithesis of accountability. And where is the progress? What progress are you referring to? Progressively bigger government? Oh, you must mean the number of people with their hand out type of progress. Republicans and Demorcrats, you are both to blame.

This should be a headline. The Repub party was hyjacked 15 – 20 year ago. Not the party I remember growing up. I will be most happy when they are but a memory.

The Federal government is overstepping it’s bounds and some states are beginning to push back. Tell the feds to keep their money and their unfunded unconstitutional mandates. Time to send the federal government to the unemployment lines.

Boy, they’re really standing by those “principles”.

After this & California,is there any American who can honestly say they still take the Republican party seriously?

what a self-serving, out-of-touch group of windbags. Thank goodness they will be going the way of the dinosaur in this new age of accountability & progress.
