    This is well done. I don't agree with it all, but it is put together well.

    I like it...


    I know, I know, some of that stuff was Bush's fault. Let's get all of the oxygen thieves out of the Senate and House. I don't give a damn what party they belong to, if they aren't doing what's right, give 'em the boot.

    It does lead to some interesting questions:

    1. Who was President when TARP was proposed and adopted to provide $750 billion in bailout assistance to banks?
    2. Since Obama's inauguration, have taxes increased, decreased, or stayed the same?
    3. Other than in the health care proposals, what tax increases has Obama proposed for implementation over the next two years?
    4. Are there tax increases or decreases scheduled to take effect over the next two years that were not proposed or adopted since the inauguration?
    5. What has happened to overall economic growth since the inauguration relative to what happened over the prior 18 months?
    6. What has happened to the stock market since the inauguration as compared with what happened over the prior 18 months?
    Are the answers to any of these questions relevant to an assessment of the Obama Presidency?

    well when you make all the tax increases happen after your presidency is over (including a second term) i guess you can claim you aren't raising taxes.

    The answers to these questions don't matter to the folks who made this video. I strongly suspect that they already knew the answers before they went into production, and went ahead and threw all that BS up against the wall to see how much of it sticks. In a country that is racing down the road to Idiocracy, I don't have any faith that any of your questions will even enter the minds of the vast majority of those who see the video.

    But it is nicely done though, - the only requirement of propaganda in an Idiocracy.

    Both parties can share the blame for much of what the video blames on the Dems. However, the handling of the proposed healthcare legislation and the continued lack of fiscal restraint (carried over from the last administration and democratic legislature) has made many of the swing voters mad and ready to vote for another change. We'll see what the Replicans and independents put up in 2010. It does not bode well for the current "stars" of the Democratic party.

    Is there any question that Obama is moving us towards European style Socialism?

    Is there any question that Obama will heavily tax productive Americans in the near future to pay for all his entitlements?

    Is there any question that Obama's out-of-control when it comes to spending? That his only solution for problems is to spend more borrowed and freshly printed money?

    Is there any question that Obama is mishandling terrorist by giving them the same rights as US citizens? And, that his closing of Guantanimo is a disaster?

    Is there any question that Obama wants to destroy the finest medical system in the world so that he can socialize medicine?

    And, if you think the worst is over economically, then you haven't seen nothing yet!

    I just finished reading Robert Wiedener's new book, Aftershock. It is about the financial crisis that the Obama Administration is growing. If we don't start cutting spending NOW and get our debt in order, our heritage will be a thing of the past!

    It's only spin if he's outright disagreeing with you. Those were just questions.

    Does that mean you know the answers and know that none of them supports your beliefs, or just that facts are irrelevant no matter what?
