  • My SO is really into this political shit and tries to put me down because I have made the CHOICE to not care about it. It really does not matter, the time he spends choosing to care about this stupid shit could and should be much better spent!!!

  • Well sitting there blind doesn't make it any better only worse....

    I don't doubt it O.P. Obama seems to throw out whatever sounds good without it having any actual real depth... He just wants to try and make Reps. and liberals look good... when in fact he is doing just the opposite...

  • Does Mr Otelini say what these massive uncertainties are ? The statement is meaningless unless he is more specific.

  • what's the climate like there in your bubble, Truth? must be nice to be untouched by the quality of the economy, environment, education, the justice system, food safety issues, property law, the regulation of safety standards, foreign relations, etc.

    regardless of your place on the political spectrum, none of the above is "stupid shit' to a thinking adult.

  • That is riidiculous. The unwinable war in Iraq drained our economy to the brink of collapse. President Obama did not enter us into that war.
    He inherited the economic collapse.

  • @violetz - but O's excessive spending his first several months didn't help the situation any, either! All of that spending and there are still too many unemployed today, our economy has not totally improved, and I've seen nothing else improved since. Do you spend money you don't have?

  • I wonder if McCain would have done a better job? I seriously doubt it. We'd still see over spending and stimulus packages with the other side bitching constantly. Intel knows without jobs people do not spend. Spending halted when Bush was still in office. Obama is taking the brunt for the bad economy and the excuses by corps are lame at best. Try listening to Warren Buffett instead of bitter business reps.

  • Yes! I do agree! Why would you invest in something when you're not sure if your investment will pay off or if you'll still have a job to pay for your investments when you should have saved your money to keep a roof over your head and food on the table!

    If you thought your job or your investments were in jeopardy...would you go on a spending spree or save your money?!

    Uncertainty SLOWS the economy down. I have a feeling the uncertainty will BEGIN to subside after November 2nd, and particularly in January--IF Bush's tax cuts are extended. Right now, it's a game of wait and see.
