Not just any tax cuts, but the Bush tax cuts!

This is funny.

For the last eight years I've been hearing people talking about the Bush tax cuts being the end, causing the end of the world. Democrats own the White House, Democrats own the Senate by 18 votes. Democrats own the House by 70 votes plus.
They OWN it.

In a sense, yes...he has (even though he doesn't REALLY believe it).

But what difference does it make? You'll still cry that he's a communist/socialist anyway.

In spite of the required payoffs, the additional stimulus and help to the middle class is worth it. We can eliminate the extortion in 2012.

This "additional stimulus" as you call it, will not create
jobs or barely help the economy, even in the short term.

"Middle class" and "adding to the deficit" in the same sentence does not come off to me as "helping". Who will be listening to Obama about substantial changes in tax policy in 2012. Two Years too late.

If Obama is hired to save a company, he would have been fired already. Why do we have to deal with all these non-sense? Have to stick to the politicians, good or bad for the rest of their terms?

Unfortunately, some elections can have disastrous consequences, as we have seen with the 2008 election, when this know-nothing, do-nothing fraud was installed as president. Have to depend on the House/Senate to stop his radical agenda and wait for 2012.

No don't make stories up please! Most know that Obama is a failure, no matter how you choose to spin it, LACK OF EXPERIENCE AND COMMON KNOWLEDGE, make a very weak, President, his points of view have not a thing to do with his lack of knowing how to turn a weak, sucky economy around. He is a bull, cannot take advice from those who disagree with him, he blames every single person in the world, for his mistakes, and failures, except where the finger should be pointed bact at HIMSELF. Ignorant failed policies and a stupid stimulus, have not helped us one bit, with that GREAT CHANGE, THAT WAS TO BECOME US.

It's echoing what is going on now in the debates, Obama wants the tax breaks for those making under 250k, or even a million, plus unemployment, the right want none of it. They want tax breaks for their .5% top of the ladder cronies and the only way to get what obama wants, or in his eyes is to agree to the loan shark republican offer which has most of the democrats outraged and the republicans high-fiving each other. The democrats need to hold their ground and just let the tax breaks expire completely. The 900 billion dollars in deficit spending the republicans are proposing is not worth it.
Obama ran as a centrist, was elected as a centrist, and has been running the country center/right which is not what we need.
