How long with America put up with republicans attempts at undermining the economy with fear tactics?
For the last year, we have listened to Fox News, uneducated AM talk show hosts, and Republican representatives, calling for disaster and predicting doom on the country. Despite all that, the economy continues to slowly rebuild. The greatest factor against job increases is employers fearful of an economic decline predicted by the republicans. How long before a majority of Americans see through the republican ploy to stall the economy in the name of power?

i wouldn't call 3 trillion in spending in under a year fear mongering.and considering that those employers pay the most in taxes,it doesn't seem to far fetched why they feel that way.maybe they will just move over seas for a better tax rate.

Yeah, its fear that keeps our taxes high and our businesses uncompetitive, not government spending.

The GOP would love see our nation torn asunder so that they can step in to play "Savior"...its really all they have and they know it.

To a certain extent I hope that your side does do away with the republicans. Then the disaster that is inbound, both economically and socially, will be squarely at your feet. We conservatives are sorry that our insistence in pointing out facts is so upsetting to you.

I thought you folks said in November 08 that Republicans have no more power. Which is it, either they are able to, as the minority party, block all the Dems want and control the economy or you guys are in charge. Please pick a point and stick with it. All the liberal flip flops are giving me a headache.

The best tactic for the GOP now is to shut the fu*k up. They screwed it up and the economy is rebuild while the Dems hold the majority. Predicting doom can only make their comeback even less possible.

the silent majority already has. you just haven't heard about it because they're silent. nationwide, 2010 will be a repeat of this past year's 23rd new york election, with the moderates spanking the conservatives once again for their intractible extremism.
