Obama may not be so bad after all

  1. I was a huge critic of Obama but I have now lightened up to him a bit.

    He has come out in support of the auto bailouts and the $300 billion stimulus package that will drive oil higher and the dollar lower, which is beneficial for the stock market. He is also coszing up to George W Bush, Paulson, and Bernake. I feared Obama would immediately eneact a protectionist, anti-deficit, anti-spending agenda, but that doesn't appear the to be the case so far. Nanci peloci is urging for the bailout and stimulus packages, too.
    I am doubing Obama will raise taxes or phase out the Bush tax cuts becuase his intelligent economic advisors such as Buffett and Volker know such actions would have negative ramifications on the US and global economy. Paulson

    As for restricting NAFTA and CAFTA that would have devestating consequences, it is unlikely Obama will make such a rash move because his advisors won;t let him.

    I don't care who is in power. All that matters is that the globalist policies of deficit spending, free trade, rising comodity prices, cheap labor, and consumerism, reaganomics, are perpetuated as they were under George W Bush. We can't afford to restrict the money supply and inflation duing these supposedly hard economic times.
  2. There is nothing like reading your sound wise advice.
  3. Hmm Lets see how stock_trad3r did...These are all separate posts.

    And that was just 5 minutes worth..
  4. I don't why would anyone want to be on a forum and be ridiculed? Why is he(she?) still here?
  5. I am pleasantly surprsied regarding Obama's willingness to work across party lines regarding the economy.
  6. Stock trader I don't know if you mean to do this but your comment sounds like your writing satire LOL.

    You say these things like they are good-

    "He has come out in support of the auto bailout."- You like him because he wants to take more tax payer money?!

    "He is coszing up to George W. Bush, Paulson and Bernake." You like him because he is coszing up to these guys?!

    "I feared Obama would enact an anti-spending agenda." Are you so politically stupid to actually think a liberal would advocate an anti-spending agenda??!!?

    "Nancy Pelosi is urging for the bailout." Nancy Pelosi!?!?!?!?!?!

    Stock trader im going to sign you up for political science 101 because you need it badly.
  7. Here is a video from Onion that parodies Obama's historic candidacy

  8. That was great.
  9. He's always been about satire. I'm always amazed that no one here seems to get it.
  10. Another one from the onion. This one parodies the boredom of C-SPAN telecasts.
