"You know, I'm less concerned about the technical definitions of a recession than I am with all the people I meet who are struggling every day and they have been struggling for many years, .....Even when the economy looked like it was doing well on paper and Wall Street was flush with cash, people feel that they're working harder for less."
- President Obama via newsbusters
*What is it with liberals and their "feelings?" I feel this, I feel that, but never do they rely on actual definitions or factual citations. It's always "I feel, therefore I'm right." To hell with pesky facts and definitions, Obama is going to govern the country based on "feelings." He's the President god damnit, and he won't be bothered with reality based discussion.
Also, why is the solution always "tax the rich?" Why can't we focus on reducing government spending, increasing accountability, and doing away with bureacracy? Why not burden the government rather than the people?

What the fuck?! CNN calling Obama the new Reagan! wow. Reagan called for self-reliance and personal responsibility. Obama says, "Don't worry, I'm the Government and I'm here to help." Drastically different message there folks.
