    Obama is well aware of the budget crisis and where opposing lines are drawn.If anything he is far to conciliatory and needs to get out front and center before the public and make his case clear to all, clearly showing the stakes involved.  Greece is in danger of imminent bankruptcy. I want our crisis resolved as well, but the GOP plan without negotiation is dead on arrival! Compromise is the key, is the rightwinger aware of the definition of compromise? Well, you are the one who had to ask

    What does Greece have to do with America?  Thier government structure is different than our.  The right is forever comparing other country problems with ours...why?  The right will spew platitudes like..Americas exceptionalism, but yet will lump us with other countries and how thier downfall will be our.

    I believe in Americas exceptionlism, our problem is greedy lawmakers, a corrupt supreme court (that answers to no one)
    Elected officials have acted in thier own interest and not the countries.

    Obama..crummy administration?  What has Obama done to our country?  The stimulus worked, plus made us money on interest.  Obama saved the auto industry, which the right wanted to go down the tubes.  He is trying to give health care to everyone, Jan Brewer , gov of Arizona, cosigned over 600 people to certain death by taking away medicare.  O
    Obama allowed the Bush tax for the rich to be extended so the republicans would agree to:

    unemployment benefits for those who had no money around Christmas time...he stated the kids needed something

    medical benefits for the 1st responders during 9/11 who were experiencing problems from exposure

    don't ask don't tell, reverse a bad policy for gays who have died and those still alive who pledge alegency to the US

    relesed reserve oil to stop speculators from controling prices

    arranged to have Bin Laden killed, without help from the Bush admin..remember Bush stated that Bin Laden was not important!

    everything that Pres. Obama has tried to accomplish to improve the economy..republicans have prevented.  The republicans want the economy to fail, they will do anything to keep Obama from looking good.

    Sen Oconnel (?) was asked what was first on the agenda for the House Republicans after they gained control in 2010..remember, bad economy, no jobs, low wages, banks forclosing..people tossed on the streets??? What was O'connel's answer? make sure Obama was a one term Pres.  That shows you how much the republicans cared about the american people.  There is not enough time to relate to you all the good that Obama has tried to do, not for himself..which is refresing in a politician..stop comparing us with other countries there is none like the United States of America, I believe in us.

    first off, what's wrong with Obama's admin? secondly, why would you want him to use greece as an example. they have a different form of government, their problems are for different reasons and what they are doing is the wrong approach.

    The idea is that if Obama planned on running in 2012, why wouldn't HE use Greece as an issue to further his campaign career?  It seems the Democrats already plan on having a different candidate run under their party's banner!

    Next- the Obama Administration has done nothing but help G.W. Bush 'blow-up' everything he started to ruin in the first place originally.  He has created little new policy within his own term.

    The question was- isn't it funny or interesting that Mr. Obama has chosen NOT to use the Greece issue?!  Doesn't that mean that the U.S. isn't interested?
