    It looks like Obama and Pelosi continue to use their power in order to scare people to buy into their ridiculous spending package. It's really a terrible thing when you use people's misfortunes in order to accomplish your hidden agendas....:mad:

    Hmmm, I think all the liberals on this site are on vacation OR they can't comment on threads like these because they are so ashamed of themselves for voting for such a fraud!

    what are we even suppose to say, its wrong that he is talking about the facts that the econ is in very bad shape and needs help? Good god you mean he as actually telling to the truth to people? ahhhhh nooooo! stop the insanity.....Its much better if he could just lie, and make things up, and then have the left call anyone who does not agree unpatriotic and say they hate America....

    Telling Americans the Economy is in the **** hole, is not fear mongering...its the truth...I see it every day talking to customers and when I see my paycheck.

    But he is just making stuff up.

    He said that this economy is the worst since the great depression. Meanwhile of the many recessions we have had since the great depression two of them have been worse than this economy.

    When asked about it he "changed" (because he stands for change) his tune to say that this is the most "profound" economy since the great depression.

    What he needs to be saying is the truth: that while there have been bad indicators for the present economy for a while now what we are facing is some signs that this could turn into one of the worst economic crisis since the great depression.

    Unfortunately, while that is true, it is not scary enough and since he promised while campaigning that he would not build his presidency on fear-mongering...he is going to go and fear-monger.

    btw, who wants to bet that the AP reporter who asked him that question will be banned from further press conferences?

    Obama is looking more like his predecessor all of the time.

    Bush said we are facing a crisis in Iraq, that it is a rogue state that is in league with terrorists and has weapons of mass destruction. We are facing a crisis, so we must commit thousands of troops and billions of dollars to invade that nation, or we're likely to see one of our great cities become a mushroom cloud. (or words to that effect.)

    Now, Obama is saying that we're facing an economic crisis that only the government can solve, and only by committing billions.

    At least no one will be killed in Obama's crisis fixing plan.

    The result of the government fixing these pending catastrophes is a national debt that already is over $30,000 per person, and is most likely to be more than twice that pretty soon.

    Correction, Obama is set to commit more troops to Afghanistan, which will = more casualties.

    Obama has to commit more troops to Afganistan, and will no doubt do so, resulting in more casualties, correct.

    It is not Afganistan he is talking about when he talks of an impending catastrophe, however, but the economy.

    Not that the situation in Afganistan and Pakistan isn't a potential catastrophe, of course, but that wasn't what Obama's speech was about.

    ah, hmm,ah yes, that is exactly what I promise to the people. I would get the troops out of Iraq in 16 months, but I forgot to tell you that I will send them for combat in Afghanistan... Thank you for believing in me.... :D

    do you know how to add?

    take all the troops out of Iraq...put 20,000 more (max suggested by Military and what Obama has has talked about)

    Now tell me how many troops that leaves going back home?

    Come on do it, its not that hard....give you a hint. over 100,000 US troops back home....

    Maybe you just dont support the troops though.

    Also again HE F-ING Said he was going to send more troops to Afghanistan 1000 times, try listening , its amazing the results...
