The "Buy American" clause in the stimulus plan has America's trading partners angry.
Do you care? Or do you think it's just too bad for them?
Are you worried about retaliatory measures?

Oh, I was watching the news on BBC before Christmas and they were talking about our economic downfall is making huge issues just for recyclable materials in the US and England. Because sales were predicted to be so low, China didn't need as much recyclable materials for the packaging of their goods to sell to us. So in essence, they were blaming the world's failing economy for our spending habits. Which I find interesting, because while they are all bitching about how much Americans consume, they sure are keeping up with production. Ahhh, the irony of it all.

I'm not the least bit surprised that people are starting to see through him, and that his approval rate has dropped 20% in his first week in office. The thing that blew me away is how enamored people were with him in the first place. They put him on this pedestal, expecting him to be the answer to all the country's woes.
He's not Superman, he can't do much better than previous presidents could. He's a man, with lofty ideals and false promises he can't keep.
