Give Me the Ball!

I've always admired ballplayers, no matter the sport, who, when crunch time comes and the game is on the line, want the ball.

I'm glad we've got a president-elect who wants the ball this time! And we have all got to be pulling for him. The recession which we weren't in (but really were), in late 2007, is here...

With a vengeance!


Let's be glad there is someone who wants the ball!

He may have the ball but he hasn't the slightest idea what to do with it. His policies, if carried out, will get this country into deeper problems than we have now. You cannot print money without rampant inflation in the future. His knowlefge of economics seem to be nil.

Chris: and the outgoing President had it all figured out?

My thoughts are certainly with Obama - he has an overflowing plate! GWB went into office with a surplus and he's managed to bankrupt us. It's a sad state of affairs!

Chris, I was thinking about you the other day. Glad you're still reading. I've come to agree with about 0.025% of your responses. But good to know you're still out there.

Belinda, I couldn't have said it better myself!

President Bush tried to stop the mortgage crisis a total of 28 times. Due to the likes of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats he was not successful.

The crisis was caused by lending money to people who had no hope of being able to pay and can all be traced to the Democratic party.

Chris,

Please take it somewhere else. It's been proven I don't know how many times that greedy people acquiring mortgages they couldn't afford hoping to make a profit on escalating home values caused this mess.

It was the abuse of legislation intended to make homeownership affordable by the avarice of commercial interests on Wall Street that has driven our economy into the ditch.

I will say this, you are consistent. You never miss an opportunity to blame the poor for societies ills...
