    plan is to put the country in the shithouse to get re-elected, so they believe. But if the President really wanted , what stimulus plans could he enact by executive order. I believe that he can possibly take some of the TARP money and redirect it.

    And as you say

    fact that its my party's own leaders who are refusing to lead and do what's right.
    what should they  be doing, even with the Republicans forces against them?

      I'll make it brief this time - using the power of government contracting to impact domestic hiring and manufacturing.

      One example - require all defense contractors to produce products in the US and employ US workers.  The same can be done for any business that contracts with the federal government.  Buy in the US, produce in the US, employ US workers.

    •  So You Think Total Surrender to the GOP is a Good (0+ / 0-)

      plan for the Democrats?  Because that's exactly what you are suggesting.  

      I mean after all, Obama is the fucking President of the United States.  If he can't think of a single thing he could do to get the economy working again, then why should any person vote for him?

      I'd really like to hear a reason.  I'd love to know what Obama and the Democrats' plan is to get us out of this ditch we are is.  Yeah, I know he didn't put us in the ditch, but we hired him to get us out and he's failed so far.

      How does he intend to convince voters to keep him behind the wheel when he has no plan to get us moving again?   You and I might not want the new driver that the GOP is proposing, but the current driver certainly isn't getting the job done.  Why should America keep him behind the wheel?
