After driving the economy into the ditch, do the Republicans really think they offer the leadership and insights to “jumpstart the economy?” What a ludicrous thought!
Thankfully, the GOP lost the last election cycle. Can you imagine if McCain and the GOP were in charge now?
The standard GOP refrain is to simply “lower personal income taxes” not to spend money on a stimulus package.
Excuse me, but, how does “lowering personal income taxes” help the person who doesn’t have a job? How dumb does the GOP think we all are out here anyway?
The stimulus package is a lifeline to create meaningful jobs to bridge us from where we are to where we need to be.
I, for one, am not looking for any additional GOP “leadership” about how to fix the economy anymore than I’d be looking for Captain Hazelwood–the Captain of the Exxon-Valdez–to offer suggestions about how to maneuver an oil tanker through Alaskan waters.
Every day of delay further puts our economy at risk. Under GOP “leadership”–George Bush and Henry Paulson–we’ve already sunk about $700 billion in bailouts to Wall Street and I’ve yet to understand how we are better off. Can anybody explain this to me?
As far as I’m concerned, the GOP needs to shut the f__k up on matters of economic policy and let the Barack Obama lead the way. If the GOP continues to look like obstructionists, things will only get worse for them in the 2010 election cycle.
Barack Obama correctly pointed out that “he won” the election. We need change. GOP–get out of the way. Try to become part of the solution rather than remaining part of the problem.
