    over $1 trillion per year to Wall Street and TBTF banks, he is proposing - offering up - cutting Social Security benefits to "help the deficit."

    Denigrating Barack Obama by comparing him to FDR is pathetic and counter-productive, IMHO.  He's been doing an amazing job for this country, despite ridiculous odds, total obstruction and absurd situations (pirates, hurricanes, oil spills and two wars).
    Frankly, a lot worse could be accurately said about Obama based on his continual pipeline of public treasury money directly into the hands of the richest in this nation, while saying and doing nothing about the poorest, those losing their homes, and wanting to cut benefits for the elderly and disabled.

    Frankly, that borders on criminal in my book. Others may disagree.  Not sure how anyone can defend shoveling money to the rich while taking money from the weakest in society.
