A healthy American economy is our business

This is the fool who supports Obama as he has tripled the American national Debt increases in just 12 months in office. Obama has lied about every aspect of his policies to get elected then does everything to undermine the greatest economy in the history of man, then he now comes to talk about how the American economy is important to St. Lucians.

Obama's policies have PROLONGED the recession and increased unemployment. Obma has nationalized through the destructive unions most of America's car companies and some insurance companies.

Chastanet -stick to buying and selling.

Only an insane person will blame Obama for the state of America economic situation. It took Bush and company 8 years to take us to create the recession and you want Obama by the flick of a pen, magically reverse it in one year. Which of Obama policies that undermine the economy? If you want to talk about the bailing out of the banks and the car industry. I want to ask you what would you have done differently. Can you imagine the majority of the banks closing down in America? What would have happened to the financial situation of the country? If he had allowed Ford and other car companies to close down, what would have happened to the thousand of workers, after America is already suffering an employment crisis? Please explain to us how has Obama prolonged the recession and increase unemployment? All we talk about debt, but how will a government do the country without debt? The debt was already high with the useless Iraq war waged by Bush. So people before we talk we must take a very deep look at the situation.

The Democratic Party was in charge of Congress when all the excessive expenditure took place even though Bush was President. Because Obama is such an incomptent and inept fool also does not mean that Bush did not stupidly repudiate his conservative philosophy and follow the horrendeous liberal spending strategy that got America in trouble just as it did for the SLP in St. Lucia.

It was also the Democrats who refused to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when the excessive lending took place and caused the housing bubble that caused the recession. It was housing policy under the Democrats from the time of Clinton that caused the recession. It was the immoral Barney Frank (if you know his history) in congress who was largly responsible with shielding Fannie and Freddie from regulation.

Know your history and the terrible toll that Democratic liberal policies are having on America.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30% of voters nationwide believe the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has helped the economy. However, 38% believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy. This is the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality has held a negative view of its impact.

The number who believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy rose from 28% in September, to 31% in October, and 34% in November before jumping to 38% this month. The week after the president signed the bill, 34% said it would help the economy, while 32% said it would hurt.

The Political Class has a much different view than the rest of the county. Ninety percent (90%) of the Political Class believes the stimulus plan helped the economy and not a single Political Class respondent says it has hurt. (See more on the Political Class).

The underlying reason for skepticism about the stimulus plan is that 50% of voters believe increasing government spending is bad for the economy. Just 28% believe that increased government spending helps the economy.

Obviously, the American people have seen through the Obama program. Now they need to make their views heard on Capitol Hill before the Democratic majority does permanent damage.

I am amazed to heard how you are so quick to point out that the SLP damaged St Lucia economy, but you are not saying what is the present government has done or is doing or at lease is trying to do to fix it. You mean the SLP left things so bad in St Lucia nobody can even TRY to fix it? So why do we have a government in the first place? Yes the democratic party is to be blamed for ALL the economic woes of america, there is no blame for Bush party. Everybody will believe you. You ever want to implicate Clinton in your foolishness, a man who left the country with billions in surplus. Try your propaganda some where else, please.

Everyone has their own opinion on a particular issue and it is expected that various peoples' opinions will differ. The writer of this commentary titled "A healthy American economy is our business" expressed his opinion and individuals having a different opinion have every right to have it expressed...but going around calling the man a fool is simply not called for...Why tell the man to stick to buying and selling? He did not tell others what to do in his writings...and he is not hiding under the veil of anonymity...Why all this anger?

One has to have his head examined if he doesn't know A healthy American ecomomy is important to St Lucia and the rest of the world including China...
Other than tourism I'll give one of many examples and that is when the American economy is not in good shape the many St Lucians immigrants who lose their jobs in the Unitd States are not able to support their struggling jobless relatives in St Lucia. Have you seen the amount of barrels sent to St Lucia during the holiday Season? 80% orignates from the US.
The local St Lucian truck drivers and dock workers benifit from this and also puts much needed revenue in the treasury.

By telling the man to stick to buying and selling only gives his commentary more credibility for this shows the man has experience in commerce and ecomomics.
