I read that. We need more Glenn Beck’s to expose all the corruption. The stimulus was nothing more than payola.

Good news is Rasmussen has 0bama at -19. The facade is beginning to crumble. Even 0prah’s prime time puff piece tonight won’t stop his fading star power. Millions of Americans are suffering this Christmas and he goes on to say he gives better “stuff” than he gets.

ON FNC they just reported that the average govt. employee now makes over $30,000 more than comparable private enterprise jobs.

Nothing more than your unionized govt. workers doing what govt. does best--destroying free enterprise.

Yep, Son House, that "sweeping economic recovery" is just around the corner. Just think of all the jobs that have been saved with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act! Oh, wait....

Now, Christine Romer is answering questions about the "Jobless Revoery" on Meet the Press. I like the title that keeps popping up underneath her image - a JOBLESS RECOVERY? They need to add about 15 more question marks to that comment line.

Yeah, well they “inherited” the US Constitution too but it does not seem to bother them or keep them from trashing it and doing things never intended. They “inherited” the Bush tax cuts, but they plan on eliminating them even though they helped stimulate the economy.

In the end, they are leaving us an inheritance that will be a huge drain from us to our grand children. It will take years to get out from under their legacy.

Ironically drone attacks in Pakistan undermine deals that the Pakistan govt. have made with various tribes within Pakistan. They may help kill off a few terrorists but do long run damage to the stability of the area,kind of a catch 22 situation.

I have never ever heard a speech from the totus that was not at least 90% political, as is his entire administration. It's all they care about. It's how they got elected,sheer political focus 99% of the time. We need to learn who and what they are.

Wahn’s head exploding again, this time arguing with Liz about reforming MediCare. Liz trying to tell him that you can’t add enrollment and cut funding...the math just doesn’t work out.

It's obama/dem math. You can do it if you ration the care.

Seriously though, Romney will not win the nomination because he will never win over the social conservatives (of which I am one). The problem with Romney would be his history of pulling in his cards and going home. We will need all hands on deck in 2010 and 2012 if we are going to have any hope of turning this country around.

Brilliant as usual bray and so timely

Cap and tax is out of the news right now and its an excellent time to bring it back.

We already know anything that is not being discussed by this adm. has a life in the background and will only come back to bite us in the butt as cap and tax surely will.

The all out arrogance of this Administration to dictate to its subjects that we will have cap and tax whether we like it or not should be enough to destroy the Democrat party forever if the news is properly presented. That's where we come in.

If Cap and tax is properly and fairly presented it will be done here in the New Media and nowhere else. It may be one of our greatest challenges. Hope we are up to it. As usual Rush will lead the charge and get the ball rolling as he has already done.

As 2012 approaches, it's all going to get interesting.

I was somewhat surprised with Newt this morning when asked if he would rino out and diss Sarah.

He refused to buy into the Sarah's not ready trap. He knows if he disses her all 4 of his conservative followers that are left will leave him for good. He knows he needs us if he wants his opinions to be heard.

Thanks Rod, The EPA has already given us Cap & Tax only a more draconian form of it. They can shut down businesses and industries they don’t like, take a look at the coal industry. Who’s next?

This is to destroy America, nothing else.

Energy is one area where Sarah Palin can be a huge voice for our side.

This adm. is and was wholly devised to destroy everything we believe in. Historically it was done incrementally, a little bit at a time. Now they are just steamrolling as long as no one gets in their way.

That's our job to get in the way.

On MTP, Kramer - not seeing any of the stimulus money stimulating business. It’s going for govt expenditures. CEO’s that are hiring these days are hiring in other countries.

Greenspan is worried we won’t have the labor skills needed when the economy comes back.

Granholm, MI Gov. is pushing the green jobs as a plan for recovery. (Why, oh, why does Gregory keep having her on to talk about the economy?)

Exactly, energy is the issue now that the Global Snow Job has been exposed. Coincidentally Cap and Tax adds such a premium to Natural Gas, her pipeline won’t be feasible. They have added a $4/unit tax to destroy the pipeline. The District of Corruption at work.

MTP, Gregory says Wall Street is healthier, Main Street is not.

Greenspan refers to the two economies. Wall Street and small private business - big problem. (It seems obama has finally created the "two Americas" that John Edwards kept yapping about.)

Romney - there is no stability. Small business is hunkering down.

The dirty secret of the “Stimulus” and the coming “Stimulus 2 is that it was never meant to be be stimulative. These Leftist all claim to be Keynesian yet their “Stimulus” bill is not even Keynesian. It just a massive bribe to their activist base.

It has almost nothing in it that is actually stimulative even using the Keynesian theory of government directed stimulus spending. All the Dems did was hand out money to states and localities to paper over existing budget deficits. Now they want to do the same thing again.

One of the overlooked things coming out of the “job summit” was the statement that ONE part of the plan was to “bail out state and local Governments to preserve jobs”.

Basically what the Democrats did was pay their Visa bill with our Master Card. Now they want to repeat the same fiction in Stimulus 2.

Their local and state special interest groups were facing serious crises due to a massive short fall in tax revenues so Congressional Democrats rushed to the rescue with the “Stimulus” bill. All that did was delay the day of fiscal reckoning for these state and local Governments. It does almost nothing to generate anything that will actually be stimulating on the economy

"The Recession is over, it is now a Depression."

That was my initial thought when I heard Summers.

I just heard Christina Romers say "Of course not" to a question by Gregory on MTP asking whether the recession is over.

It sounds like the Obama financial team need to get their act together.

Most of us in small businesses don't know what to expect next! We don't know what is coming our way. Zero has succeeded in interjecting just enough fear of big socialist govt. to keep many businesses at bay from expansion, borrowing,(not that we could) etc etc.
It's the Socialist/Communist way—all intimidation all the time.

All that did was delay the day of fiscal reckoning for these state and local Governments. It does almost nothing to generate anything that will actually be stimulating on the economy

Heard on a little radio blurb last night about a town that is turning off a number of street lights to save $2,000 a month because they just don't have the money. It's getting bad in some places.

Liz Cheney will play a role in future govt's. She is amazing. She has her father's way of cutting out her opponents heart with a smile on her face and in her voice. I do agree the electorate would be happy with less animosity in politics. Cheney's tone is pitch perfect.
