What do you think should be our leadership's first priority?

For me, all items should be off the table until the oil spill is under control,
followed by the war
then job creation. (although I will probably not agree with how they go about either.

  • 1. Stop spending and start LEADING!
    2. Stop propping up and bailing out businesses, industries and individuals from failing!
    3. Provide individuals and business with tax holidays and lower business taxes to encourage a return to the US!
    4. Come up with REAL job creation--as in PRIVATE industry--not more taxpayer funded government employees who can never be fired!
    5. Kick out ALL illegals and secure our borders.
    6. Do whatever it takes to finish and wrap up the wars--properly--no matter how long it takes.
    7. Don't run for re-election!! LOL :o)

  • Stop spending what they don't have. Period. Do that and you solve a good half dozen of those other problems.

  • I think national security should be the number 1 priority. Right now, I do think a lot of attention should be focused on the oil spill, but the only way we as Americans are ever going to be able to prosper and live our lives, is if we are safe from terrorists and other countries trying to take us over. It's not going to matter if 300 million new jobs are created if a terrorist group comes in and blows everything up. Everyone is much happier and healthier when they know they are safe. Can't say I feel that way right now...

  • I'm confused that the oils spill doesn't rate for so many.

    I would like to see the oil spill cleaned up. Expecting the government to handle it guarantees it will take twice as long and cost twice as much as it should. The government already dropped the ball in waiting to accept foreign aid and failure to adequately inspect in the first place. Just because they are responsible for the national coast line does not mean they are the most qualified for the job. They should've had the work outsourced and handled the first week instead of "thinking about it" longer than they spend on most federal appointments.

  • The economy should be the primary focus. Reining in spending, getting out of the ME, incentives for SMall businesses to create jobs, working with the leaders of the other industrialized nations who are experiencing the exact same same economic woes that plague the US (housing, banking, auto) and unemployment.
