The show's host was not the entertainment ... the caller sounded very sincere in his point of view. One does wonder why the Ds, after they had gotten through with the health care bill, did not move on and finish the business of the budget when they had control of all 3 branches. Haven't heard a good answer to that yet.
Bottom line. Gas price average is at almost all time high for this time of year and unemployment is still very high sitting at 9.2. In my opinion numbers mean everything. You can make promises all you want but in the end if the numbers do not lie. These were a couple of his main platforms during his campaign (along with his whole exit strategy bs) and nothing has changed.
[QUOTE=Gerry Clinchy;782790]The President's statement is a matter of record. I drew my own conclusions. I honestly believe the politicians, not just O, are out of touch with their constituents.
Someone of FB is circulating a petition to cut congressmen's salaries if the gov't shuts down. I laughed out loud. To pick an example from each party:
Kerry just bought a $8 million yacht.
McCain has more homes that he can even count when asked.
Cutting their "paltry" $174,000 salary is a joke! It will give them something to laugh at when sharing $3000 bottles of wine at the DC bars.
Like you said Gerry.......out of touch.
Lots of people seem to be out of touch with "the common man". Head lines in Bartlesville OK newspaper........."ConocoPhillips' CEO gets 25 percent pay increase". ( New York [AP] ).
