    🙂

  2. Joe says:

    Wow, no love for Obama today, huh?

  3. Thank for the HM, RD.

    Guess this sort of thing takes away some of the pain the right is feeling over all those American jobs that were saved at GM…

  5. Maggie Mama says:

    In case you haven’t noticed, anjin, SNL and the late night comics have also jumped in on the “Obama” action.

    Considering that GM still owes the American Taxpayers 43 BILLION DOLLARS, I can’t be really happy about the jobs saved until I know the whole deal was worth it. We taste the pudding again down the road.

  6. anjin-san says:

    > still owes the American Taxpayers 43 BILLION DOLLARS, I can’t be really happy about the jobs saved

    Well, the right never does seem to be happy about money that is invested in our own country. How do you feel about the 15 billion in taxpayer cash that simply vanished into thin air in Iraq when Bush was in charge?

  7. Maggie Mama says:

    How do I feel about the disappearing 15 Billion? Friggin furious as would any sane American whose tired of having the government waste billions of our tax dollars on their STUPID PET PROJECTS aka GETTING RE-ELECTED SCHEMES and FRAUD.

    I want our government to crack down on Medicare scams, Dept. of Education waste, misuse of government credit cards, theft of government property by employees, federal employees who owe all kinds of money in unpaid taxes, …… darn, I could go on and on and on about how our government has become too big to properly monitor and how Americans have failed
    (myself included until recently) to pay attention to the financial abuses and have failed to specifically call our representatives to task.

    If you thought I would accept this outrage because it was done under Bush’s watch, you are dumber than I’ve always thought you were!

  8. anjin-san says:

    Mama – even conservative elements in the financial press concede that the GM bailout is starting to look like a pretty big win. Would you have preferred it if Obama had simply allowed what remains of the US auto industry to collapse? Then we could watch one of our remaining manufacturing sectors and the associated jobs go to China and India, never to return.

    I am as unhappy about government waste as the next taxpayer, but a blanket condemnation of all things government does not help us to deal with our problems. TARP worked. The GM bailout appears to have worked. Considering the fragile state of our economy in 2008, these are wins for every American who is not simply interested in spouting right wing party dogma.

  9. Maggie Mama says:

    History will offer a better view of the “fragile state of our economy” when emotion-based arguments are removed from the assessment. In the meantime your government will use the lame duck Congress to pass another round of unemployment checks as dollar value of those working dives.

  10. anjin-san says:

    > History will offer a better view of the “fragile state of our economy” when emotion-based arguments are removed from the assessment.

    Really? Because now itt sounds like you are making an emotion- based argument. Can you back it up with some actual facts?

  11. anjin-san says:

    I will take the silence as a big “no”…
