Comments on: The First Draft: “Nobody messes with Joe” http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/25/the-first-draft-nobody-messes-with-joe/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: maryann http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/25/the-first-draft-nobody-messes-with-joe/comment-page-1/#comment-389320 Thu, 26 Feb 2009 21:43:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=16123#comment-389320 Rob, Bush also inherited Bill’s Clinton’s deregulation which is the root cause of the banking industry’s present condition, AND the subprime mortgage and foreclosure mess which has impacted the American people and the economy.

As for Obama, a neophyte politician in the White House, when what we need is a saavy business person who understands that in order to boost this economy, we need to grow our business community, not the government. As long as it is more financially lucrative for businesses to move and/or grow their overseas offices, that’s where the jobs will be. Until the US starts offering the same tax incentives for businesses, there will be no job creation, other than in the government and believe me, I have been there and don’t want to go there again.

+ Eliminate unnecessary and costly subsides to save tax dollars. Get rid job-creation programs that are no real value and add burden to long term healthy economy.
+ Pedestrian plaza for NY’s Time Square. Go Green NY to control pollution.

Please do not forget, that spending can’t go on without the Congress’s approval. What I don’t understand, is how people who believed we had too much spending in the last eight years, think spending all this money now is o.k. tb is right, China will be our landlord, and why are folks o.k. with that? And the help for foreclosures? You should see my house compared to the houses of the folks our taxes are going to help. I was raised to be responsible for myself, so I’m really steamed that my responsibility gets me the opportunity to help out irresponsible people who overextended to get a better house, or borrowed too much against it; and, instead of adding money to my savings for a remodel on my existing home or new home, I’ll be putting money into helping those irresponsible folks. Seriously??! This is not the change I was hoping for!

I wanted change not a blank check to government to spend trillions while I’m asked to cut back and budget. Shouldn’t government look to live within it’s means and not end up having to borrow money from China to support these trillions? I don’t know about having China as our “landlord”

We have a large scale economic issue and we have the elected officials we hope have concocted a good solution. Republican or Democrat; who cares I know Americans expect politicians to do what it is they blather on about. We as Americans need a ray of sunshine and soon. The past eight years have just been miserable that is due to mismanagement not the party affiliation.

We all have to remember…it was the inept Rescumicans and those that voted for them that got us into the mess we are in. Bush inherited a 1 trillion surplus and squandered that and added another 1.2 trillion in deficit. The Republicans posting here clearly are not qualified to comment on the excellent President Obama and the Honorable Joe Biden.

Yeah, Joe will be a constant source of unintended humor, but compared to the last Chief Exec. he’s William Jennings Bryan.
