    Jon,

    Your post makes no sense what so ever. Were you trying to link bank failures to conservatives such as CPAC and Limbaugh? The entire economic problems have multitudes of causes from all sides of the Left and Right trying to make a profit from selling shaky mortgages to people who could not afford them.

    So could you please do a better explanation of what the intent is of your post? Oh! Yes, we do need Tea Parties to protest Obama’s budget and stimulus plans which are absolutely ridiculous!

    Actually, the buck stops with Obama.
    His popularity is waning despite his best efforts at talking and squandering hundreds of Billions.
    Here is the latest Rasmussen:

    Saturday, February 28, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 39% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Twenty-nine percent (29%) Strongly Disapprove to give Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +10 (see trends).

    That’s a new high for the number who Strongly Disapprove

    This means there are still 32% wandering in the middle regarding Approval that can be swayed easily.
    Obama has squandered his post-election capital because he said one thing to get elected…and is running up the deficit and recklessly spending despite his words.
    Regarding Obama’s Socialist Movement:
    I HOPE HE FAILS!

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Remember, Obama’s Strong Approval was +32 just a few days after inAuguration.
    Obama is finding out the Honeymoon is over, Wall Street doesn’t buy his BS nor do a growing # of citizens.
    The kitchen is gettin’ mighty hot for Obama.

    but of course I never wanted to change the constitution for the religious wackos…so I’m glad the shrub lied to ‘em.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Rujax-
    I was pointing out the STRONGLY APPROVE vs. STRONGLY DISAPPROVE poll numbers…if you would actually read for a change.
    These numbers are significant because they reflect folks with a STRONG OPINION of Obama…one way or another.
    The fact is, Obama has plummeted since InAuguration Day.

    Yes, he still has a lot of “soft support”…but for how long??

    PS–
    Rujax, your posts are becoming like Burma Shave signs….and just as mindless.

    Did you guys see this?

    THIS is how smart the rethugs are right now…

    The Kentucky Republican suggested that possible scenario at a campaign fundraiser for him on Capitol Hill earlier this week, according to three sources who asked not to be identified because of the politically sensitive nature of Bunning’s remarks.

    The implication, they said, was that Bunning would allow Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, a Democrat, to appoint his replacement — a move that could give Democrats the 60 votes they need to block Republican filibusters in the Senate.

    “I would get the last laugh. Don’t forget Kentucky has a Democrat governor,” one of the sources quoted Bunning as saying.

    “The only logical extension of that comment is, ‘(Make me mad) … enough and I’ll resign, and then you’ve got 60 Democrats,’ ” said another source who was present at the event.

    @20
    That is pretty SOP for you fools. Distort the facts to make your point and when you are called on it move the goalposts.

    But keep living in your deluded little anti-reality bubble if that is what it takes to get through the day.

    @2 “entire economic problems have multitudes of causes from all sides of the Left and Right”

    What a load of HORSESHIT! The Great Crash of ’29 happened under a Republican administration. The Savings and Loan Scandal of the 80s happened under a Republican administration. The 2008 Financial Crisis happened under a Republican administration. There’s a reason why economic calamities always happen under Republicans, never Democrats. We believe in laws and cops, you don’t. You guys are economic anarchists. What do you think would happen if we had no traffic laws, no yield signs or stoplights, no traffic cops? Well, you can’t run an economy that way, either! But you idiots are too locked into your stupid ideology to see that. And then you have the balls to blame the consequences of your actions on us! Nah, I don’t think so. It’s time to say, “WE TOLD YOU SO!” Once again, Democrats have to clean up after you. Frankly, we’re tired of it. The solution is to never elect Republicans to any office.

    RE-Reading Rabbit @ 24, that is as clear and simple a statement regarding the matter as I have ever seen.

    Should make sense to even the wingnutz. It’s a real measure of their pathology that just can’t/won’t see it.

    The real irony here is that the Rethuglicans are scrambling to obstruct, derail and subvert anything the new administration tries to do, but if they had anything resembling patience there’s going to be plenty of fallout yet to come from the failure of neoconservatism they can try to blame on Obama anyway.

    It was also reported yesterday that the FDIC knows at the rate it’s covering the deposits of the failing banks it’s catching, it’s going to run out of money pretty soon.

    How bad is it? Well, at present even without detailed audits, it’s pretty clear that the assets of Citi and Bank of America aren’t anywhere near enough to cover their deposits, and their market capitalization totals even less! It’s highly doubtful that the other biggies are in any better shape–and the FDIC’s running out of funds just covering the little guys!

    Slingshot @ 7:

    I work very weird hours. Between my courier route and bands, I can be at work at any time between 4pm and 10am. This week is an easy one for me, just running my courier roue for Club CalNeva’s sportsbook, picking up receipts from CalNeva kiosks in 19 casinos in four counties over a 175-mile route from about 9pm to 2am or so.
