“Traitor to whom? Certainly not to the Constitution which the Executive and so many members of the Legislative branches of OUR government BETRAY their OATH every MINUTE of their "Service" to we the PEOPLE. Keep drinking their Kool Aid and do some thing I am sure you have NEVER done.....READ the Constitution and Bill of Rights. These documents are not the "god damn piece of paper" that Bush II described. They are the sacred texts that created the greatest wealth of capital, knowledge, art, and good in the history of mankind.”
But the wise ultra-rich keep the masses pointing the finger across the political aisle instead of letting them find common ground against the REAL enemy to every man, woman, and child in this nation....”
“Why does O let GE, Boeing, Goldman sachs, Verizon, Exxon Mobil, Shell, etc, etc, etc PAY ZERO TAX????? $2,000,000,000 on undeclared illegal war..Iran is next....Do some math and see what that could pay for here at home. Bush-Cheney politics have been elected to a fourth term!!!!!”

“You're just being tricky--but we allknow who the real war mongers are,and they're the ones with $$$ in theirtills--and overseas in secret accounts--and "they" are not PBO.”
“$2,000,000,000 PER WEEK on illegal undeclared Wars....Does anyone have ANY IDEA what the $$$$ could do here at home? Divide that by a teacher's average salary. Health care could be FREE for all. Welcome to the 4th term of Bush-Cheney....Obama has KILLED the anti-war LEFT......”

“The anti-war left kills itself, because most Democrats are pragmatists about war, not ideological not isolationist. Going after OBL in Afghanistan and Pakistan was justified in the minds of the vast majority. Abandoning that mission before it was done to go after WMD and al Qaida in Iraq, which did not exist, was opposed by most, particularly as the lies became known. If you are a conscientious objector, I respect your views, but a conscientious objector will never be elected president of this country.”
“When Obama kept the same Defense Secretary, same Generals, put Geithner and Summers (who had Clinton overturn Glass steagall) in charge of fixing the economy; I knew we had the third term of Bush Cheney. to those who loved Bush and hate Obama I say "why?". Yet another war, Gitmo Bay, Drone bombing of civilians, Patriot Act extentions, another bailout, more money printing, no prosecution of the Banking frauds. We don't need to see hide nor hair of Bush. The legacies of his policies are alive and well and will be so regardless of who wins this next election.
“Either one of these candidates will have us at war in Iran by Feb 2013.....Take it to the BANKsters...$2,000,000,000 PER WEEK for Iraq and Afghanistan (PSSSST I don't think FREE health care for the entire nation's citizens could burn this $$$ every WEEK)...You and your father are making a bad choice...
“It killed Bush 1 with Ross Perot.....And to that I say HOOORAHHH.
It will do the same to Romney this time.....The Neocon "GOP" deserves that....They don't know what conservatism means or they would not support $2,000,000,000 for undeclared endless wars; which by the way "O" has perpetuated (PSSST Health care could be FREE for EVERYONE at this burn rate)....

-Do you like endless undeclared wars which cost $2,000,000,000 per week? Health care could be FREE for everyone and that money could be spent HERE. Not blowing up bridges in the mideast and using OUR TAX DOLLARS to re-build them via contracts with the like of Haliburton.
-Do you like 65% of the non-violent drug offense inmates are black and he would have set them all free the day after inauguration?
-Do you think murderers and rapists should be set free because of "overcrowding" due to stupid marijuana laws?
-Do you like the "Patriot" Act and want it forever?
-Do you want people charged as "terrorists" and NEVER get Due Process or a trial? Who "judges" them as being true terrorists?
-Do you condone continued torture and illegal invasions and takeovers of elected governments?
-Do you want the Federal Reserve to ship TRILLIONS of our tax dollars overseas and not tell us who got the $$$ and what the terms of the deal?
“Please watch these and educate yourself then pass them to your friends
see any familiar faces from the Obama cabinet? Same crowd which "Hank" Paulson in the Shrub cabinet came from. Same "Government Sachs" crowd which Corzinne was from. See who was talked into overturning Glass Steagall? WHO CARES what party they are from? THINK what is the common denominator here.....
I suggest Mr Krugman should publish that both parties being owned by the Banks are the cause of our troubles. But those that base their decisions on party politics are the victory of the Banks that "Divide and Conquer" the mindless masses.”

“You will get no criticism from me that the Obama administration has not done enough to regulate the banks, that Democrats were complicit in the repeal of Glass-Steagall, or that this administration has erred on the side of Wall Street. I don't think you will get a dispute from Prof. Krugman on that point either, as he as been criticizing from the left, for example, supporting Romer's original pushes for higher amounts of stimulus, and criticism that the Fed chief is not following advice he gave when analyzing the Japan crisis.
But that Krugman criticizes from the left doesn't make him a Marxist as some posters here seem to want to label him. He is quite well within conventional capitalist paradigm.
I'm not sure what your point or goal is, first criticizing from one side then another. Are you just trying to find fault, any fault, and are a Romney supporter? Romney is a total puppet as far as following the short-term interests of the wealthy and their self-serving trickle down rationales.”
“Do you buy food? Milk? Coffee? Sugar? How about Gasoline? Show me the math that these have not gone up more than 2%. OF COURSE the government excludes energy and food costs from the CPI.....You think that COINCIDENCE?????? HA!!!!!”

“Commodities go up and they go down. And there's nothing new about the way the CPI is calculated nowadays. Were you complaining of (or celebrating) deflation when gas prices were dropping?”

“Fuel prices, which also affect the price of most foods, are not affected by the presidential post the way you're thinking. It's simple demand. China and India have enornmous economic growth and large populations. The only way to stop the cost of fuel and food from going up would be to stimy growth in emerging markets. No president liberal or conservative can affect gas prices in a significant way and if someone tells you they can they're a liar.”
