  • I'm honestly surprised we have not lost it already. I also agree that it has gotten progressively worse, promises of better are getting old since no one does anything about it.

  • I say we will once again be in a recession by years end. With the state of our country we may not really notice it but it's coming.

  • Carpy has it right... if we loose it, then people will stop lending to us and then we can climb ourselves out of debt rather than growing it!

  • How is PBO going to blame Bush for this during the campaign? This has happened 2 years into his watch. It belongs to him, but I guarantee that it will be blamed for Bush because PBO doesn't conceive that anything he has ever done could have any adverse consequences. With his campaign rhetoric already heating up, this country will sit and hold its collective breath to see what happens in 2012. I think 6 years of waiting is quite enough. I'm ready to breath.
