I'm with ya. I guess we probably should have talked to the Russians a bit before we got into a land war in that country. It has now lasted 3 times longer than WW2.

This should be our entire foreign policy: let these moron third world countries destroy each other, but if they look at us wrong we turn them into charred embers. We spend trillions living in fear from people whose idea of a weapon is lighting their shoe on fire.

Another negative for the President.

Quote

The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

Is it any wonder Ron Paul is getting more contributions from the military than all other candidates combined? The others want to send troops to fight in hopeless third world countries, then not take care of them. Ron Paul wants to use the troops to strengthen our country and increase their benefits for doing so.

Of course President Obama is fine spending $750,000 on a new soccer field...........FOR TERRORISTAnd yes this falls at the feet of President Obama just as everything that happened at Gitmo during Bush's reign fell at his feet.

One Muslim taking care of the others...don't worry about the overspending, debt or tax rates...just give the murdering bastards a soccer field!! welcome to club Gitmo, we'll be working on the spa after the elections.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama

those data points must have been better than the market expected, because stocks were up. or there was some offsetting news that didn't make for a good mainstream story.

Never understood why people place so much value in this.The stock market today is as high as during the 5-6th year under Bush. The economy difference is huge.

THAT'S MY LINE. it's just a quick and easy barometer. the media wrote for doom and gloom and the people with money at stake just shrugged. who do you believe?there are some days when stock market movements make no sense whatsoever. pretty sure today's wonkiness is due to bernanke's statement.heard someone use the phrase "bond vigilante" in a question for him. it made me chuckle.

listening to these politicians pelt bernanke with the absolute dumbest questions, it's not easy to tell if they're using the platform to pander to their side of the aisle or just genuinely don't understand finance. or both, I don't know.I couldn't do his job. I would lose it and get completely out of line with these monkeys after a few questions like, "from a deficit standpoint, are we better or worse off than greece."

I guess the bail out was a successGM is so flush with cash they dumped $400mm into a failing French car company, Peugeot. So glad my tax dollars could be used to give GM enough money to help a French car company that is failing on its own.
