This would engender confidence in American, in the markets and the marketplace, world-wide! Bon Jour'. jmw.

Pelosi's do nothing House

Republicans have done their best to vilify Nancy Pelosi. Their sexist overtones with Pelosi (as with their racist overtones with Obama) simply cannot be ignored by people of good conscience. The fact is that the House of Representitives under Nancy Pelosi has been one of the most active and effective House sessions in our country's history. There are literally hundreds of important bills that have been passed by the House. The problem is that these bills are sitting at the feet of the Senate where they are beling blocked by Republican filibuster. The horific pa

Obama hasn’t done anything

There are those who believe that the Obama administration has not accomplished anything in the last two years.

Re: (Frank Rich’s) What Happened to Change We Can Believe In?

Aside from midterm talking points/apologetic slants which obscure warranted levels of intense criticism (leading to actual “change”):

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . telling us to “look forward, not backward” – after instilling the “forward” as what would be on election day, instead of the opposite.

FDIC Called On to Put Bank of America Into Receivership: KEY: “The banks that are foreclosing on fraudulently originated mortgages frequently cannot produce legitimate documents. . . . Now, only fraud will let them take the homes. Many of the required documents do not exist, and those that do exist would provide proof of the fraud that was involved in loan origination, securitization, and marketing.”
