    Thank you. A very good article. Krugman is good at getting to the point and the bottom line is Obama has gotten a ton accomplished. It won't look that way if you refuse to see how he saved this country from a massive depression and you believe every and anything about this new health care law is awful, but if you view things that way you've already chosen to not participate in reality. He has done this with a republican party that proclaimed on his election victory to block everything he would attempt to get done until he is driven from office. How do you work with that and how do you proclaim yourself a patriot when you allow your country to suffer for years in order to regain power for your political party?

    The last sentence pretty much nails it.

    Did President Obama Save Us From a Second Great Depression? NO! IT'S a tall tale, about how the Obama administration saved us from another Great Depression..Simply false!! How did Obama save us? by continuing more Bush/Paulson-like bailouts.

    Chuckles...

    As I've stated before: Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny. It's the only one. It's based on thousands of years of human experience. There is nothing narrow about the conservative philosophy. It's a liberating philosophy. It is a magnificent philosophy. It is a philosophy for the ages, for all times.

    Conservatism is not based on thousands of years of human experience it is a political philosophy that is not even 100 years old. It is based on people who don't like change.

    And yes, Obama despite your belief did in fact save our economy from a depression. There won't another president strong as him for a long time.

    No, he made the depression much worse with his uncontrollable spending and giving billions of dollars to foreign governments. You're wrong, conservatism is based on thousands of years of experience.

    Democrats want more intrusion and bigger Government and more taxes.

    entitlement spending in 2010 at all levels of government totaled $2.2 trillion in 2010. That equals $7,200 for every man, woman and child in the country. It approaches a staggering $29,000 for a family of four.

    Thank you Democrats

    Remember that republicans don't want to help and are horrible villains because we oppose giving free handouts to everyone and their brother. I'm not against welfare, in fact I think it's good. But it seems to me that most people that are on it could make it without it. And I'm 100% opposed to taking money from the rich and giving to the poor, who could be rich of they had the same work ethics and morals as the rich.

    Exactly. My ancestors immigrated from Italy and they had nothing when they got here. They worked for what they have, and they worked their asses off! Keep in mind they came to the United States at a time when you were discriminated against unless you came from a Northwestern European country. It makes me angry to see these people on government assistance driving luxury cars and living in nice houses.

    Lol, no it is not. How can it be based on experiences when the U.S. government is not even more than couple hundred years old.

    Also, yes Obama did in fact save our economy, are you saying the economy was BETTER in 2009?

    Way to generalize. Not every single person is using fancy cars and living in nice houses who is on welfare.

    The Roman Empire was a corrupt government and had a much different government structure than out own. You can see SOME similarities but they don't have much in common at all.

    I'm not generalizing, just stating my observations. You should come to where I live, that's all you see are people driving Lexuses paying for their groceries with food stamps.

    You are telling me that I will see multiple people with Lexuses with food stamps in one location? /s

    You obviously don't know your history. The Roman Empire was one of the strongest empires in history.
    It also was an EMPIRE ruled by Alexander the Great, a guy who became dictator. Even when it was a republic its structures had nothing akin to what the United States has.
