Klook, hate to get into this but isn't what you are saying about the magic wand what you are expecting from Obama?
We have pretty much the same thing in Pa., I didn't really think anyone could be as bad as Toll Gate Ed Rendell until our new Gov. got in, he's even trumping our local zoning laws.

No problem Sam, I expected that response. How do you think he is trying to help? Just name one thing that asshat is doing to rein in spending? You cannot defend what he has done over the last 4 years by blaming Bush who no one in here defends. Obama is indefensible. The do nothing Congress is insisting on cutting spending and all you do is rant about them stopping his solutions. we cannot continue to spend at the levels of his ego. It got him reelected but what will the next pres. get, Dem or Rep?

It's just like anything else Klook, if your not being effected then you want programs to be cut. When you need jobs there has to be spending, if the Gov. has to have failing infrastructure repaired it spends some money but gives businesses as well as employees jobs, the stuff needs done anyway. The cons want to cut SS for one example, many live on that & that alone but they will not even consider having a millionaire pay more or cut into the largest defense spending on earth. There is a lot of pork all around but no one wants theirs cut, Obama has cut some already, the debt was already there & climbing. We should by all means be totally out of both wars but let's be honest we stay to protect big business, did you notice how both sides (mostly cons) itch about welfare but neither except the lib side has done anything forever (because they are both spineless). Cut the pork, cut lobbyists, cut bottled water, add time spent in DC, there are things that don't cost much but when added together add up to billions & they are totally unnecessary. The question was, not what he is spending but what is the difference between your example of the magic wand & what the Pres. is facing.

KLook wrote:DO you really think he had a magic wand to make umpty ump years of Democratic spending go away???:? What Maine do you live in? I am amazed that people think just electing a conservative solves all the debt run up before him. Just the DHS alone was more then he could rein in quickly. And you don't supposed they were entrenched and stonewalling? Lets just look at education, the state required and funded new schools all over the state in rural areas. Then they defunded the towns through cut backs and increasing valuations to reduce reimbursement. This was because the towns were conservative and would keep the kids in the 2 room school I went to and never modernize because they had no industry to tax, just ever increasingly aging homeowners. SO they lied to them to get them to build and expand with new gyms and tennis courts and hot lunches etc. Then they pulled the rug out. People all over your area on fixed incomes are getting killed by taxes they don't understand. All because the idiot locals didn't know what was best for them so they had to be tricked into the modern age. As a superintendent said to me in a dispute about parental rights,"People don't make good decisions so we have to make them for them." That kind of thinking is so arrogant and typical of the liberal superior magnanimous self righteous asshat that it makes my blood boil.
Some years later that same woman lost both of her children because of a bad decision. Who was to blame? They were taught there should not be consequences for decisions and it bit them. I bet she blames society somehow not herself.

I did not expect he would have had an easy task....but his diplomacy in doing so is "zilch"! I live in the same Maine that you once did and don't disagree with your view, but you can't "slap someone in the face" and tell/expect them to work with you after the fact! SOME people do not make good decisions and when that happens SOMEONE has to make a rational decision in it's place. WHO should that be? ARROGANCE does not beget diplomacy...and although not a liberal myself...I find it insane that the extreme, right or left, can make any headway without "meeting in the middle!
