Really, Jim Really

Let's just take a second and think about what is going on in Washington, the big picture. The republicans are digging in their collective heels about the budget and being stubborn about raising taxes and especially about raising taxes on the "job creators". Now, we need to look at why the republicans are so stubborn and what they have to gain by doing so. Well, without a doubt most of the big contributors to any republican campaign are big businesses. Additionally, what do they expect to get for their money? Well, they expect to have legislators that will be business friendly, that is no taxes, no regulations; no standing is the way of the bottom line. So, how do you get that? Easy, you first get as many legislators in your pocket as you can afford. Moreover, you need to have someone in the Whitehouse that will rubber stamp every piece of legislation that comes down the pike. Unfortunately, currently there is a stumbling block in the way of having the perfect climate for business. Then conservatives don't own the Whitehouse. Well you ask how do you get the Whitehouse back? Easy, first you get big business to keep hiring to an absolute minimum and then fight the president on every issue no matter how bad it impacts the everyday American. You then wait the four years keeping unemployment high and keep the rhetoric hot and partisan. Wait until election time, blame everything on the president and hope the public buys the whole lie and get your man or woman back in the Whitehouse. Consequently, once you're in and have the house and senate you start hiring and declare victory and say we should have done this all along. Genius absolute genius and the really sad thing is Americans won't care how or why but, when the jobs come back it's all good. Really…..

  1. Mr. Brooks: That about sums it up, we Americans have a short attention span, thus leading us to make decisions based on the immediate issues of the day. Bush and the Republicans raised the dedt ceilings 9 times during his tenure while decreasing taxes on the very rich-your "job creators", but what are the quality of the jobs that they are creating? Big business in "off-shoring" as much as India and China can handle, while "small business" continues to create those wonderful $6.75 jobs that wouldn't sustain anyone but some high school student living with their parents. Thsi is why we are in the situation that we find ourselves. Let's face it, the rich just received the largest tranfer of wealth in the history of the nation, and wow, it didn't go to the poor-which is what every republican tells us is happening. It's all smoke and mirrors, the republican are the party of greed and "family values" what they really mean in republican speak is the value of their families bank account!

    Keep up the good work,
