Re: debt, budgets, when Obama's policies take affect, compounding interest

What does McCain have to do with any of this? YES - any new President has a lot to deal with. Those are some nice grafts you displayed. I'm sure your proud of them......and it's easy to see that you are proud of Obama too. I would be in some agreement with you if he kept a few basic promises:

A. Obama the campaigner repeatedly stated his disdain for pork barrel / wasteful spending. Less than 45 days into his Presidency, he signed a budget bill giving out millions for such projects. He signed many additional bills with millions more attached.

B. Campaigner Obama promised to make the federal government more efficient......and there would be transparency too! Of course, this simply wasn't the case when trying to pass the health care bill.

C. Obama promised to never appoint a lobbyist to any position that he had control over. (think he forgot about this one).

For me, it just appears all of this campaign promises are meaningless for now. IF he doesn't make a few of them happen by the end of year two, the Democratic Party will be done with him.

The above are simple facts and have NOTHING to do with those on the left, right or whatever they believe!
