J.M. Keynes specifically said stimulus not bailout. And the Democrats quoting him have conveniently misunderstood him inspite of quoting him. Republicans are doing the right thing for the economy.

According to Keynesian economics the state should stimulate economic growth and improve stability in the private sector - through, for example, interest rates, taxation and public projects.

And guys, don't put too much faith and heart on Obama. Too many people are thinking the guy can somehow work miracles just with his presence...
Obama's no better. Seriously, Democrats have started quoting Keynesian policies...they don't seem to understand the difference between incentives and bailout. :| And one of the biggest failures is Obama.

I wish Obama'd shut up. He can help the economy a lot by taking a blanket and hiding under it with his mouth shut. Neo, you had a point from the start, I'm wondering if his "Change" is hogwash, although I won't write him off...yet. But he's off to a really miserable start.

I expected that from a Republican...

Also, just as many people are thinking that he should never have been voted for.

Let's just wait to see if Obama actually does what he promises. Then we'll start talking about him. Oh, that applies to both the Democrat and Republican parties too.
