Larry-Baby, I see Bernenke is suggesting more bailout money for banks. They got the first 350 Billion, now give the next 350 Billion directly to working Americans, who will pay their homes down / off.
But a new car, t.v.'s, appliances, furniture, etc. DO NOT !!!, give the banks the 2nd half of the bailout (350 Billion more). If you want to stimulate the economy, help people where they need help, as well as watch the money trickle up, do as some have suggested, give it directly to us , it will produce a much bigger bang for the buck.

Ask Bush this question! >>> Are 'freedom' and 'wildness' antonyms or synonyms? Bush,, "HUH? WHAT???"
America NEEDS government for the people, not lawlessness. Bush, and others, mistakenly call a wild, lawless economy a 'free' economy.
Wage controls on executives and price controls on interest rates are REQUIRED for recovery! [amongst other things, like FAIR taxation!]
Executives are 'free' to slop in the pig trough, while people are 'free' to lose their jobs and homes.
Stop legalized loan sharking, usury, aka Credit Cards.
Obama says the "anything goes attitude has to go". This is a SLIM glimmer of HOPE for America. It is NOT unpatriotic to have traffic lights, for example.
>>>>>> As for Hillary Clinton and Obama, if the USA wants world wide respect, become a role model, not a bully!
Look to respected countries, like Canada, Britain, and Sweden on the issue of gun legislation. Instead of the 'right to bear arms'; what about the 'right to go school without dodging bullets'!!!??? [8 year old in Florida taking guns to school – We just LAFF at your antiquated 2nd amendment!!!! shhesshh 'right to fill my home with an arsenal' NOT]
Canada is #4 on the UN HDI. The US is #12. << Why would we want to be like you??? huh???
You are #1 in crime rate, #20 in education.
STOP wearing Canadian flags when travelling overseas!!!!

Since Bush has been Presdient for eight years the US has become hated the world over. If he dares to say that it was worth it then what a penalty we all must pay for years to come. We became the bullies and it was based on something that wasn't even the truth. Bush blamed it on lack of proper intelligence but I blame it on Bush's lack of intelligence. He is the worst President in US history and although I know this comment would never appear on your show at least I had my say. Thanks to Bush we let in MILLIONS of illlegal immigrants. Thanks to him our economy is in utter shambles. When have you ever seen a President Elect trying to clear up the mess of the current administration....NEVER! Doesn't that tell all of us something? Wake up America!

Vincent Nizzardi   January 13th, 2009 3:32 pm ET

Larry Baby, I wish Gary from Canada would stop beating around the bush, and tell us exactly how he feals. By the way, he is exactly right.
We Americans must take back our nation, from the corrupt.
What will it take, to put an end to all the money grab? Another Revolution ? I can tell you if this crap does not stop right away, I would not doubt we Americans will be rioting in the streets before too long.
We have allowed our Government to get to the point it's at now, and we must insist on the criminal laws being tripled for those elected officials found to have done wrong, as well as big business / white collar crime. TRIPLE THE PENALTIES NOW. As far as gun control, It's time has come. too many people have, and are still dying. it must stop.

hey larry.
Ask Mr President Bush, how does he sleep? Is he on somekind of strong sleeping medication or nothing matters to him period?

Larry Baby, I wish Gary from Canada would stop beating around the "bush"...
I say these things because I love America.
CNN today releases a study today that 1 in 4 teen age girls have an STD. That is from wildness being misinterpreted as freedom. Is this an indication of a great country?
I don't watch late night comedy. Did anybody do a skit on the bail out money that payed for executive 'retention' bonuses. Am I the only one that finds this hilarious? Where were they threatening to go, into politics? Now if they used that money to get RID of 90% of them... SNL should do a skit on this.
If America buys into Obama's 'anything goes has to STOP' program, you will have a chance. [Of course, i was saying these things on the CNN BLOGS for months!]
What has Huckabee called the 'fair tax' has been bantered about for decades. America NEEDS that process! Get rid of ALL taxes, except sales tax. Credit card interest rates have to be reduced by 1% per month for a year.
The present economic 'crisis' is just at the stage where the water has drawn back off the beach. The TSUNAMI is on the horizon, led by defaulting credit card debts!
ASK BUSH IF FREEDOM AND WILDNESS ARE THE SAME!? Don't use 'tricky' vocabulary like antonym and synonym.
America NEEDS Government for the People. Circle the Wagons!!!

Gary Chandler in Canada   January 13th, 2009 6:58 pm ET

The MOST underated news comment in recent weeks was when Obama said,,, "The 'anything goes attitude' has to stop."
Enough of this Bush is being nice to Obama, and vice versa, clap trap. Obama's comment was a true and accurate descrition of the Bush mentality that drove the last 8 years. Obama cut it right to the quick.
Ever noticed how the Right Wing wants God and country regulations when it comes to abortion and marriage, but on the economy and gun laws they call for a 'wild', I mean 'free' system?
Bush thinks wildness is freedom and it is NOT! Wildness is 'anything goes' and freedom is the ability to choose the right from wrong.
Even the Old West towns required the removal of side arms. Wouldn't the freedom to NOT have to dodge bullets at school represent an American Dream? Google 8 year old school gun Florida sheesh
If the Repubs want to stand a chance they have to REALISE their base is an anchor, not a sail. Otherwise just run Limbaugh as leader and get it over with.
Circle the Wagons!!!

Confused ............... Martin

Saudis shutting down refinery for a month, helping raise gas prices here, friends of ours , notta!! we kiss their butts and they send 17 hijackers here for 9/11.

Clinton people 95 % in Obama's administration, no change to me, Clinton is the one who signed the de-regulation of banks and wall street that helped get us to this mess today.

No Clinton people!! I wanted change!! Im very upset with Obama!!

With all the smart people we have in the USA , its sad he couldnt bring in some new faces to DC.

What about his meeting with Mexico's President, guess Mexico wants assurrance we wont do anything about illegals and keep sending all of the stimulus money back to Mexico via Western Union and Money Grams from Wal-mart. They make money !!

Wal-mart an Arkansas Co, wondering who is from there?

Cassandra   January 13th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Larry, ask President Bush what is his stand on the illegal immigration crisis, and if he were to serve 4 more years how would he fix the crisis?

elva shipley   January 13th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

As usual, President Bush came across as very arrogant. After 8 years I've decided this is because he is arrogant. This is one of many reasons why his approval rate is so low.

1)350 billion to the 200 million americans over 18 is 1725 dollars each and yet i see comments it would be 50 or 100 grand each.No wonder there is trouble with the economy.)2 There is talk like the auto industry got a big piece of it,and it was a small percentage.3)What about the people losing their homes and credit score?You could inject a trillion dollars and none of them can borrow because their credit is ruined.4)With the fed rate so low,the banks are making a slaughter with re mortgaging.So why the bailout?It was supposed to help the ones in trouble.5)The only solution is to raise minimum wage to 20 dollars an hour.That is the only sure fire method to equalize the playing field.6)Stop flooding the market with cheap chinese goods and create some american jobs.Even if the costs are higher,at 20 dollars an hour everyone can buy them.If everyone worked at wal mart,the government would not collect any income tax to pay for roads,sewer,healthcare and alot else.7)The only reason there is global competition is because greedy companies and the government let it happen.Q.Why should a 2 dollar pair of runners made in india cost 100 dollars?A.Because the company says so.....Boycott this crap.These third world goods cheapen the standard of living of the u.s. and canada.,but in the end you pay with your job.
