Intelligence and honesty aren't always synonymous.

Our new president has proved himself a liar and a pawn for the upper elite.

He would do best by addressing the problems we're facing as best he can, and just keep his mouth shut about any recovery coming soon.

The stoopidity of the comments on this blog are astounding. This is supposed to be about "Reinventing American after the Crash", not dragging it down into the still-burning embers...idiots.

ANON SAID.....The stoopidity of the comments on this blog are astounding.

Hey genius it's stupidity !
And the crash has not even happened yet. The coming crash is what we would like to avoid , but based on the fact that all we get is Obama flapping his lips and reading his teleprompter while pandering terrorist leaders and telling us everything is going to be A okay while snatching away our personal freedom is not exactly making me feel warm and fuzzy inside as it does Keith , bukko and others who don't even live here anymore. Spending yourself out of debt has never worked , neither has printing or borrowing money that can never be paid back . so when that increase in taxes inevitably comes as will the bullshit carbon tax please just pay it and shut up. Because by then it will to late to protest the mighty tyrant obama .

I share neal and truthseeker's concerns. Hugo Chavez is an autocrat, no proponent of democracy and the will of the people.

Chavez, and leaders like him, recognize that Obama is popular in their countries and are trying to borrow from Obama's popularity by saying nice things about him.

When push comes to shove, these dictators will look out for themselves. They are all just trying to use Obama for their own purposes.

Just like Wall Street.

I would like to think that Obama is smart enough beat these slime-balls at their own game. But I haven't seen anything yet.

Obama is still trying to re-inflate all the bubbles created by the previous 2 administrations that are the cause of this mess. He is giving the banks exactly what they want.

Will Obama give all his self-interested autocratic international counterparts exactly what they want too? Is that the price of popularity among the demagogue set?

Ok, people, don't get your panties in a twist. All it means is that we are TALKING...and LISTENING..to the rest of the world that share this planet WITH US. Ok?
Geez, it doesn't mean we are caving in to the demands of anyone. We are just trying a new approach - AWARENESS.
Novel, isn't it?

Saying someone is intelligent compared to President Bush isn't exactly a compliment, is it?

Will Obama give all his self-interested autocratic international counterparts exactly what they want too?Why not?

The US government has been doing it for 100 years, including under Bush.

So, the tiny tyrant from venezuela is praising BO. That speaks volumes about the type of person Obama is.

To all the BO Voters:

You're Idiots!

Who cares what other leaders say . In fact ,it's a bad sign and bad for America that other Countries like the Amercan President .

America has been used by the rest of he World for decades now and if anybody accepts the lip sevice of corrupt Nations ,they are STUPID .

Get real ,everything is all about money and goods and the rich elite and stealing whatever you can from each other . Other Countries pumped money into United States investments without regard and had no care about Americans going into debt so they are just as greedy as the Americans .World greed took over and nobody has a excuse for how they were willing to harm other Countries and fellow man/women . Its all about fleecing someone or fleecing a Country . Let me see 25 years of the Wold Countries acting in a decent way toward the World and their own Countrymen and I will believe that the World can solve World problems together ,or have world commerce .

Ford wanted bail out money from American taxpayers ,yet they are building their new plant in Mexico .That's great for American jobs isn't it ? Wake up American to how you got sold down the tubes by the Corporate and Wall Street power hungry greed machine .

Well I sure am relieved a crazy third world dictator likes our president. Maybe we can get some positive comments from Al Queda nex, then I will feel even better about our country.

Something tells me you are a dweeby computer type who makes a decent salary but probably hasnt been laid in 10 years, and the fact that some douche mortgage broker was making shitloads of money and banging hot club whores while you sit home and play on your blog really chaps your ass.

Isn't that amazing. I'm no fan of Obama, but I think anyone who doesn't think he's smart is a lier or an idiot.

But damn, how is it these guys can't see the absurdity of this approach.

I think we need debates, yes like the presidential debates, between the Obama economists and the smart guys like Mish and Denninger.

Throw in Santelli for a good measure. Honest to god i think that would incite a riot. to see guys like those two shredding apart their BS w/facts would scare the living heck out of anyone who watched it and could cause a revolution w/in days if not hours. it would be that obvious that our 'leaders' have absolutely no clue WTF is going on
