It's time for the guy to show who wears the pants in the family - so far, it's been all Michelle. Can he get anything done in time to avert the looming recession? He's had four years and accomplished nothing with our economy. Sure can't see how he'll accomplish anything in four weeks. It will so sad to see the empty suit's supportrs go on layoff.

Wow - what a change from yesterday where he said it was time for the two sides to meet in the middle. Hope EVERYONE - not just the rich are ready to open their wallets and hand out most of our income for all the socialist programs that are sure to come to light now.

When a person has had a stroke and is saved, you don't belittle the docotor because the person isn't as good as new. You thank him/her because it would have been worse without the medical care. America had a financial stroke...and I thank Obama for bringing us back from death.

I have heard many people say when Obama took office 4 years ago, he inherited a pitiful economy. Now that he has been re-elected and inheriting his own neglected pitiful economy, whats going to be his excuse now? The future looks bleak.

"The majority of Americans agree with my approach." When you rob Peter to pay Paul you always count on Paul to agree with you.

Actually, the majority of Americans in general agree with Obama.

How do you know what amount of taxes (a.k.a. revenue) need to be raised if you don't know what your outlay expectations are first? When I create a budget at home, I look at my outlays vs. income. Pretty simple really. Pass a damn BUDGET already!!!! Start there.

I think the Republicans should let the Dems write the bill. They should make it clear they do not support it, but will let it pass. Then when the country goes to hell, we'll see how the Dems and the press try to blame it on the Republicans. Hopefully the country will survive and then in two years we can throw them all out and get started on a plan that will truly save our country.

I hope that Boehner stands firm against the oral abuse of the President.
