For example, is it the $750 billion TARP that Sen Obama voted for?We hear that Pres BO "inherited" a deficit. Yet, he voted for everything in the deficit that he inherited! He also added a $ 1 trillion in six months!
We assume that PRes BO does not include Speaker Pelosi or Sen Majority Leader Reid among those who created "the mess"!Didn't the Dems run the Congress for the last two years of Pres Bush's second term?
Didn't Dems also oppose Pres Bush's efforts to clean up Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac?Wasn't Sen Obama a huge recepient of Fannie Mae campaign contributions?
Do Pres BO's remarks make sense? They do not. Of course, I was not one of those jumping up and down at the mere appearance of the candidate!Just curious: Is "the mess" the $ 2 trillion federal budget deficit? (71% Say Obama’s Policies Have Driven Up Deficit)
We will place Pres BO's speech under the "pure partisan nonsense" file!Again, what's BO's problem?

Why is it that no Dem can answer this particular contradiction?See Questions for your health care town hall: Secs. 411 and 412

Pres BO and the Dems have failed Sales 101: You can't replace something that most people like with a confusing proposal that the salesman does not understand.
Why should they read it? Schoen is a Dem. Schoen also sees a repeat of 1993-94 when Pres Clinton and Dems couldn't get their act together on health care.
