    I appreciate someone out there with the quihones to nail it to this little punk tax dodger Geithner... Even Obumbler likes Gregg's fiscal views, but Gregg obviously didn't want any part of Obumbler's future socialist America!

    These days with all the resource and energy problems, balancing the budget or paying off the National Debt is like trying to formulate the ever-elusive Unified Field Theory. It's actually been getting worse over a few decades now except that we're nearing a limit cycle. If Protectionism arises in a big way (and that's looking like more of a probabilty every day), then our goose is literally cooked. They dynamics right now are getting too complex for anyone to truly get a grip on.

    He's right, of course. The plan is nothing more than rhetoric, just like Bush's statement during the Kerry debates that he had a plan to cut the deficit in half in four years. Not only that, but he's gone Bush one better by promising to cut in half a deficit that is more than double the one that Bush didn't cut in half four years ago.



    He picked a funny way to show that "deep seated commitment." If he wanted to guarantee our children a future that they could afford, he'd have had to change the borrow and spend policies of his predecessor, not expand on them.
