Let me be clear...

The Republicans were wrong in their spending habits in 2001-2008. They ran up the deficits.

The Republicans and democrats were wrong in approving the bank bailout. All it did was put off the inevitable for a few years. Corporate welfare is still welfare.

Obama was wrong in spending my money for "stimulus" which was just a huge political pay off system. It didn't work and it was fiscally unsound.

Obama has tripled the deficit during his tenure making things worse. All of his socialism has failed whether you like these programs or not. We cannot afford them.

Republicans and democrats got us into this mess and we all still put them back in office at a rate of 95%. How crazy is that?

By the way, he is the president but not "my president." He is a total embarrassment and insult to people like me.

fairmon...the problem is that maybe the people running it no more about education but they know absolutely nothing about management. That is not their forte. They would go nuts if you or I said we know more about education than they do with their experience and education but they will never admit that some of us with business/management experience could teach them a thing or two.

Absolute arrogance..

conservative...what does every discussion on this page have to turn into something about "sodomites" and gay bathhouses. I don't see the connection with those things and Chris Christie.

Just a little off the subject.....

carlB.....I don't give a damn what McConnell said about Obama. The Republicans did the right thing by saying to Obama, HELL NO. Anyone with any sense would see that he was and is the most unqualified person to ever hold the office. Community organizer....give me a break.

You are right, spending by Republicans helped get us in trouble, then your guy doubled down and spent twice as much. As far as a "great depression," that was stopped with the bank bailout passed when Bush was president. Obama and the democrats "stimulus" put us farther in the hole. If you are going to rewrite history, at least be sober.

Liberals, and especially blacks, look at this know-nothing as some kind of God. It is silly when you look at his record. He sucks..

This article is a prime example of the following:

This whole cartoon and discussion is based on the assumption that liberals are smart and everyone else is dumb.

I think that liberals and conservatives are smart to the same extent. Red neck conservatives are balanced by black gang bangers on the low end. On the high end there are billionaires on each side, scientists, teachers, etc. in different ratios.

The difference I see on this page is liberals like Bennett constantly make fun of the intelligence of the other side just because we disagree on approach.

Let's take a subject..say..global warming. Liberals say that the data definitely shows that it exists and that people who disagree, no matter the proof that they have, are dumb. We conservatives could just as easily make the same point about liberal/socialist ideas that have failed miserably in practice and outcome and portray liberals as dumb.

The problem is that we disagree about which philosophy is smarter. The problem is that there is no difference in intelligence at all but there is how the two types of brains perceive the same set of facts. The problem is facts are facts and no matter the perception they stand on their own. What both sides have to avoid is elevating their views to a religion that assume that their perceptions are infallible.

Chuck has "tirelessly" vote conservative in every way.

This gingoistic quote is almost childish, "But, folks, we are government.

We are roads. We are education. We are health care. We are defense.

We are."

I will answer this way

You are nuts. You are big spenders. You are have ruined health care. You have sacrificed our influence and made us defenseless.

You are wrong.
