Any American that wants the Bush policies to be changed cares that his successor understands we have had enough of the Bush agenda. That is why McCain is not the person that should be elected in November 2008. He, for the most part, will continue most of the Bush Agenda from the campaign statements he has made.

Any American that is concerned about our country will also CARE about Bush and what he does so long as he is President. For example, telling lies, conducting ...

“That's because this bill was meant to stimulate the economy not help the poor. The money was put in the hands of those they believed would best use it to stimulate the economy. Paying bills and putting the money away for a raining day will not stimulate the economy and is what most likely will happen if the money was given to the wrong people.

Besides, money will go to more people than you said they would, maybe you should read my article and begin to retract your articles you fool! “

GOP blocks Senate stimulus package
The Senate has failed to break a Republican filibuster on an economic stimulus bill that would give $44 billion in rebate checks to the elderly, disabled veterans, the poor and unemployed. The tally was 58-41, two shy of ending debate.. ... The Associated Press and New York Times have more on the political wrangling.

One of the no votes was Senator Reid to enable the bill to be voted again. The truth is that had McCain voted YES this package would have pas...

Now people on JoeUser claim extending unemployment benefits and including rebates to people who make less then $3,000 is PORK. WHAT BS! These are not only the two actions that would be MOST successful in providing a more effective stimulus to the economy but also help those who need help the Most. The illogic that appears on Joe User and is shown by the Conservatives in the Senate is amazing!

All the leading GOP Presidential candidates tell the voters that if Obama or Clinton is elected their taxes will go up. That is a LIE!!!!! I looked at the positions of both Clinton and Obama and they support increasing taxes for families making OVER $250,000 per year.

I looked at the latest income data and that means only 5% of Americans would have a tax increase. McCain, Huckibee and Romney make it sound like all of us will see our taxes increase if a Democrat is elected. NOTHING could ...

The continual push of the three GOP candidates for President supporting conservative principals in the primary is a looser in November because the vast majority of voters ARE NOT conservatives. Why support a person for President that would retain policies the majority does not agree with?

Issues like:

Increasing taxes for people making over $250,000 per year to help pay our bills.

Healthcare for most if not all Americans starting with Children.

Keep Social Security like it is an...

Bush sent his 2009 budget to Congress and it is a JOKE. The problem is it will not be funny for any GOP members of Congress who are running in November 2008.

His budget proposes a $400 Billion deficit AFTER he has cut of almost $200 Billion from Medicare and Medicaid. No member of Congress running for reelection could embrace such a budget. The deficit is outrageous and to cut Medicare in an election year would be suicide. Bush is not showing how his proposed Medicare cuts are the result...

“They need to take those savings and extend unemployment and increase the benefits to people who receive Food Stamps. They need to limit tax cuts to business to those who create NEW living wage jobs in the U.S”

The issue is not to conform to the DNC but to take action that will be more effective. People who do not have jobs do not spend. People who would get more food stamps would spend more on food. Tax cuts to business that create U.S. Jobs will stimulate OUR economy. People making o...

The AP under the by line of Robert Burns reports that the situation in Afghanistan and the border areas in Pakistan is deteriorating and without more forces we could lose this fight.

Senior U.S. Military commanders said the danger from al-Qaeda is greater from the operations in border area of Pakistan and Afghanistan then anything in Iraq. In fact the growth of al-Qaeda in Pakistan is the worst of all areas according to our senior military commanders.

This is in direct conflict with wh...

After listening to Mike Huckibee as well as some very knowledgeable economists I have come to the conclusion the rebate checks to people is not the answer to help our economy.

First, giving these rebate checks to people earning as much as $150,000 is ridiculous. People making six figures will most likely not spend the added money and if the do it will NOT be on something made in the U.S.

The case has been made that $150 Billion is too small to impact a $13 Trillion dollar economy and tha...

Most on JoeUser refuse to acknowledge reality. My last Blog presented the questions Tim Russet asked the GOP candidates in the Debate this week and the response was to attack me and ignore the issues raised by Mr. Russet because they are not complementary to the GOP Presidential candidates. Here is how the two brain dead on JoeUser responded:

“Why would anyone vote for a democrat?

They aren't going to control the borders, they are not going to control gas prices......why do you eve...

Tim Russet asked all the GOP candidates last night given the dismal record of the past 7 years WHY SHOULD Americans Vote for another Republican? He listed a string of facts about the past 7 years such as:

3 ½ Trillion dollars added to the National debt.
Gas prices are double
Failure to secure our border
No solution to the Funding problem of Social Security
The trade problems and loss of manufacturing jobs
No energy policy that has made us less dependent on foreign oil

NOT ONE of ...

Look at the caliber of the people who run the two non profit organizations that produced the study that showed Bush and his principal staff LIED about Iraq:

These are the Directors of the Fund for Independence in Journalism

Bevis Longstreth is a retired partner of Debevoise & Plimpton and a member of the board of trustees of New School University and the College Retirement Equities Fund. He served as a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissioner, a member o...

On Tuesday The Center for Public Integrity posted the results of their study about how we got into Iraq. They have posted this study on their web site. They concluded the war, “Was an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and in the process let the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses”. They found 935 False statements were made about the danger from Iraq by Bush and his minions. Bush himself made 259 false statements about the dander Saddam, posed to...
