I absolutely love Nevada.

But, if she gets elected, and it looks she might...it will certainly shock the nation.

Who would have imagined a conservative anti-everything person could get the nod to represent Nevada.

You mean like leading the nation in unemployment, foreclosures, and bankruptcies?

Did you mean 360, and completely screw up your joke?

Frankly, we could use a 180 turn-around. Property values going up instead of down, joblessness dropping instead of rising, as well as bankruptcies and foreclosures... Yep, we could really use a 180 flip!

I agree that the economy is totally screwed up. But that did not happen in two years of Obama...nor in the 8 years of Bush. At least every President say Reagan has had a role in this debacle.

The only one with a real suggestion about what to do is Krugman who believes we should pour another Trillion or two into stimulus. He argues that you need to turn the economy around and that once it strongly turns you can pick up the money used.

What are Angle and the Repubs offering. "We ain't Harry Reid". That is of course true. How many points will it lower the unemployment rate?

Do they offer any suggestion as to how they will fix the economy? Nope. Just "We ain't Harry Reid". Again true but suggesting we will end up with the same economy without Reid. Does this help?

Note that without Reid we may well end up the US garbage dump. Nuclear, both civilian and military, biological, chemical includning petrochemical. We may also end up with our mining industries vastly handicapped.

So "they ain't Reid". What good does that do?

The economy is screwed up because of the housing debacle. No one can fix that, it simply has to go back down to what the going rate is for a house within the local market. You can't prop it up, and I haven't seen Angle say she would, or have any plan to do so. Propping it up does nothing except hurt locals/natives anyways, so it's not a solution either.

Angle doesn't have ANY plan, except to be a TEA PARTY anti-everything person.

If you want LESS JOBS, Angle is your woman. The ONLY thing Angle will do is make sure green technologies don't come to Nevada, as she doesn't believe in solar and wind energy resources or companies coming to the state.
