    With a bad economy, trouble in Gaza and terrorists bent on terrorizing, it's hard for a liberal to be liberal. That's sound thinking — something that Obama might "cling" to when his legacy, as opposed to his popularity, is at stake.

    The article speaks to only 40% of the economic plan. And the 40% it speaks to is the campaign Obama was elected on. He is giving 95% of working American's a tax cut. He promised that in his campaign and now he has it in his economic plan.

    Tax cuts aren't exclusive to the GOP, it is a matter of whose taxes should be cut. The GOP wants to cut corporate taxes while the liberals (and this economic plan) has the bulk of the tax cuts for the middle class.

    No he's not. He is giving out checks to those who pay no income tax. That is welfare

    There's nothing wrong with that. Those people will spend that money just like other people will. That's what a stimulus package and tax breaks are for - to increase consumer spending and create jobs.

    Aside from the fact that there is something wrong with it what I was addressing was the fact that it is being characterized as a tax cut. Quite dishonest.

    And further I believe you were one of the left wing liberals who was crying about excessive spending and deficit raising under the Bush admin and now that Obama is going to do it it will save the world.

    I've used this before as a signature on one or two forums.... I realize it's somewhat inflammatory, but as humor, it has the element of truth, making it funny. at least to me...

    "The liberal is continually angry, as only a self-important man can be, with his civilization, his culture, his country and his folks back home. His is an infantile world view. At the core of a liberal is the spoiled child -- miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats." P.J. O'Rourke

    I agree with Limbaugh, in that liberalism is gutless. It takes courage to stand by a conviction. It takes faith to cling to God's word over the "wisdom" of man. Liberalism is weakness.

    Some argue that that was the Neo-Con plan, to bankrupt the economy so social programs would have to be strapped. Of course they seem to have forgot that most people would rather have a roof over their head, food, and medical support rather than the mightiest military in the world.

    Who are these some?

    One has nothing to do with the other however, most people want to be protected from terrorists. It is not the governments job to provide housing, food, and medical support. Except in a marxist world.

    Those are Limbaugh's words huh. I never known Limbaugh to be considered very intelligent and now we know why... He knows nothing about courage or liberalism.

    Typically, the left makes fun of him instead of coming up with an intelligent argument. Kind of lets them off the hook. Or so they think...

    Liberalism waits for things to be done for you. Conservatism makes you do things for yourself.

    Liberalism IS gutless. Responsibility is hard to take for one'self. Just look at who the liberals are, and what they do to the Bible. Liberals look at the Bible thru the prism of the world's "wisdom".

    All of these happened on the Republicans watch. I don't see the point.

    Liberals look at God as a means to make man happy.
