Exactly! The irony of a Democratic Party President destroying the social safety net would be funny if it weren't so bloody tragic.

It WOULD be hilarious if it turned out us nutty third party kooks were right all along. ;)

That's a distinct possibility.
LMFAO! Good one!

Well, Obama will keep giving until the Chinese say NO MAS! That should be every American's fear.

I wonder what the political hit of all of this is going to be? Right now, I wouldn't give Obama a snowball's chance in hell of getting re-elected, but that day is a long way off. I'd think twice before voting for him AGAIN at this rate. He's disappointed on several large issues, which has me very concerned.

Well, you have to remember that the question will be whether the disastrous Republicans are better, and Obama is very likely to get the Democratic nomination.

The voters have short memories though, and in no time the marketing about the Republicans being 'the grownups' and 'fiscally responsible' and such will be listened to.
