    The Obamorons just have no idea what's coming their way in 2012. If I may borrow a Biblical image, they are storing up the wrath of the American people on election day, 2012.

    Now that Sarah Palin has resigned, some speculate to focus on the race for the White House, they're only pouring gasoline on the fire that's burning around their own feet.

    I missed it, dealers spoke to their congressmen who spoke to GM who in turn kept the dealership open. What does that have to do with Obama?

    Is her real complaint that she didn't know who to call to save the 90 year old dealership in her district?

    In all seriousness, it was Bush who bought GM. Obama is just trying to make it viable so we can get it out of the taxpayers pockets. There has also been GOP congressmen who saved dealership in their districts so to make this a D exclusive club is totally not right.

    However, I do agree with her regarding the czar. Now the reason we needed to bypass congress is because they take too long to decide when to break. We didn't have that kind of time when it comes to the failing economy.

    I agreed with Obama firing the last CEO when he came back with no real plan. However, I think we should have given the new guy a set period of time to make them viable or he hit the road like the last guy. I don't think Government should have part in the restructuring but it seems congress is the ones with all the pull.

    I think it's fairly strait forward and simple, if the economy improves and Obama makes no serious mistakes he will get 4 more years. If the economy stays in the tank he will be replaced. He has nothing to fear since he's running against his record.

    Sarah was on the last ticket and he won, I don't think he fears her per se. The only chance she stands is if the economy stays in the tank and if that is the case Mickey Mouse would have equal change of winning.

    Surprise, Surprise! Just what should we expect from a Chicago hood?

    And poor LeBuick, MP, and crabtownboy are left to defend him. Where Oh Where are you Freedom, or Just Christian, or Baptist Believer, or whichever comes next.

    You do? Could you please explain to me where in the Constitution the President is given that authority?

    Honestly, if I were teh CEO, I'd have reminded Barry that he's President, not King, and told him to go....well, told him to go do something I can't repeat here.

    Perhaps he was afraid of the Chicago gangster. You know cement boots and such.

    Translation: the rule of law, and the Constitution, isn't that important. We should all trust Barack. He knows what is best for us. Freedom and individual liberty, as well as Free Enterprise, is overrated. Why not let the Government decide what we need? After all, they know, better than we do, what is best for us...

    So, is that like pre-emptive politics? Why have a slow poke congress at all when we could have a fast acting dictatorship instead? Sure would speed things up.

    Besides we didn't have a failing economy. We had an economy on the verge of collapse because we let a gaggle of financial gangsters control our money. Inflating and deflating the money supply is how these gangsters consolidate their power and our wealth, nothing new about that. The fiat money system these gangsters are running is the problem. You ain't going to fix it by giving the gangsters more money and more power. Period.

    You fix it by going back to sound money and sending the gangsters packing back to Europe where they came from.

    It's as American as torture, warrentless wiretaps, detaining with no charges and filibustering every piece of legislation. Is only the left required to be American?

    Since Bush bought the company, Obama was made chief stock holder on noon, 1/20/2009.

    Remember, it was Bush who said you come back with a viable plan or else... Or else what?

    Are you suggesting Obama is the first US President to go around congress for expediency sake? Heck, Lincoln freed the slaves without going through congress. You guys make like Obama is the first president to do what presidents do.

    So the ends, justify the means? In that case, why doesn't Obama just avoid the Congress route altogether? He knows what's best for us, after all...
