Bush is the reason both of you voted for Obongo and you won, you got your man, now enjoy him: the good and the bad.
    That was not directed at you. I just wonder where was the outrage when this spending was going on for the past 8 years? It makes me wonder of the sincerity of it all, since it just popped up since January? Makes me wonder if its not just partisan politics? I give credit and blame where its' due, not just along party lines. For example, (if I may make a point) Laura Bush spent just under $500,000 on china for the white house. I don't care to pick on her, she's honorable, and just doing what every first lady since Jackie O has done. But I wonder why just now, there's indignation at such spending? me thinks its partisan. And that's fine.

    I find it interesting, that just because I call W on his irresponsible massive expansion of the federal gov't and spending, like a good conservative should....I was informed in your post that I voted for Obama???? News to me, and I thought I pulled the curtain closed when I voted my secret ballot. Guess someone was peeking, although they didn't get an accurate look.

    cheers,

    Given that not one thin dime of public money was spent on the China I don't know what there is to be indignant about.

    It goes without saying that each new administration is faced with handling the baggage of the previous administration. At some point, however, each administration must begin to take responsibility for whether its actions were change for the better or for the worse.

    I've noted people complain that O is responsible for the $multi-billion bailouts/stimulus. Others counter with the refrain that Bush had already started down that path. No real change there? Seems like if either of them is right, so is the other. If the concept is not useful, both are guilty of the same sin.

    We do not have to post our outrage on the WWW - but we were unhappy with the Irresponsibility. So here's what we did -

    LOWERED or STOPPED OUR DONATION LEVEL TO ANY NATIONAL COMMITTEE -

    ANSWERED THOSE FUND RAISING LETTERS WITH SNARLY COMMENTS ABOUT THEIR SPENDING - Hoping for a Change in their habits!!

    BUT STILL VOTED R BECAUSE AS BAD AS THEY ARE THEY ARE STILL BETTER THAN WHAT THE OTHER SIDE OFFERED -

    But this time our guy (Congressman RINDIP), a member of the gang of 8 will just not get anything - especially our vote. As he represents no one but himself.

    Have you seen that they're paying contractors and creditors with IOUs now? Some banks are refusing them, as would I. I might take one as a souvenir.

    Anything from traffic tickets, to taxes, to fishing licenses should be paid for with IOUs from the citizens, just to be fair.
