    Why don't you look at the Gov. of Indiana and what he has done to incourage business in Indiana. What he has done to keep Indiana fiscally sound. Hey Rog why don't you compare Indiana who has a Rep. gov to let's say Illinios or Mich or Cali who all believe as you do? PUTZ!

    If the economy keeps improving the righties here will have 6 more years to complain about Obama.

    Just think how much money our country could save if we stopped allowing immigrants a free ride!! Here in MN we give anyone a free ride it seems like except those who are out trying to work hard. If you do not have a job here you get paid to sit at home and ride the system. If you get a job they take that away and most times the free money is more than what the job will pay. Therefore, we have a ton of free loaders making no attempt to change their lifestyle. Just imagine all the extra money that would go around if it were not for these individuals!

    Besides you, Pawlenty, and Bachman, are there any real conservatives left in the Peoples Republic of Minnesooooota? We had a couple Global Warming advocates...fall-on-the-sword-for-Algore-types...posting here a while back. Haven't seen them since the stormy winter weather began.

    But I take it, you are opposed to 3 years of unemployment payouts? Obviously not a true unionist eh?

    Good post. Keep up the effort. Eventually more in your state will see the folly of the Algores, Obamas, and Al Frankens....I hope.

    Anyone who thinks Republicans don't love debt hasn't been paying attention. On the federal level, Republican leadership is responsibile for most of the debt the US now carries. They are also responsible for the philosphy of "Deficits don't matter". A direct quote from Dick Cheney. Hope they're right, cause we got a heap of debt and it isn't going away anytime soon.

    You mean this quote?
    Cheney to Treasury: "Deficits don't matter"

    Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill was told "deficits don't matter" when he warned of a looming fiscal crisis.

    O'Neill, fired in a shakeup of Bush's economic team in December 2002, raised objections to a new round of tax cuts and said the president balked at his more aggressive plan to combat corporate crime after a string of accounting scandals because of opposition from "the corporate crowd," a key constituency. O'Neill said he tried to warn Vice President Dick Cheney that growing budget deficits-expected to top $500 billion this fiscal year alone-posed a threat to the economy. Cheney cut him off. "You know, Paul, Reagan proved deficits don't matter," he said, according to excerpts. Cheney continued: "We won the midterms (congressional elections). This is our due." A month later, Cheney told the Treasury secretary he was fired.

    Ya sure about that?

    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/...debt-first-100

    111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S

    In fact, the 111th Congress not only has set the record as the most debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history, but also has out-stripped its nearest competitor, the 110th, by an astounding $1.262 trillion in new debt.

    During the 110th Congress—which, according to the Clerk of the House, officially convened on Jan. 4, 2007 and adjourned on Jan. 4, 2009--the national debt increased $1.957 trillion. When that Congress adjourned less than two years ago, it claimed the record as the most debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history. As it turned out, however, its record did not last long.

    The $3.22 trillion in new federal debt run up during the 111th Congress exceeds by 64 percent the $1.957 trillion in new debt run up during the 110th

    And what party was in charge?

    Just a little reminder from Wiki -
    The One Hundred Tenth United States Congress ... (from 2007 -2009)...
    The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
    The One Hundred Eleventh United States Congress ... from January 3, 2009 until January 3, 2011. ...In the November 4, 2008 elections, the Democratic Party increased its majorities in both chambers.

    But...but...but, Brian. You can't provide those kind of "facts"....they want to be baffled by bullsheet!...HMMM, I think I may have introduced an oxymoron, eh?

    Seriously, the Democrats don't want to be reminded of their blunders, they want it all to remain Bush's fault. The sad possibility of ALL this, is that as we get further and further away from the Bush era, Roger and his followers will vaporize, or have a house fall on them.

    Wouldn't THAT be some 'hope and change'???

    Most Democrats who are budget hawks, like myslef, have no problem acknowledging the fact Democratic leadership has a spending problem. In fact, many democratic presidents have been at the helm while this budget problem has escalated.
    What seems extraordinary to me, it the denial of so many Republicans that "their" party has been at least as guilty as the Dems. In fact the budget was only balance under one President in the last 30 years. That President was a Democrat and the congress was Republican. Maybe that's the combination that works in Washington.
