So much for bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle. That must be another example of the campaign "rhetoric" Obama admitted to the other day.

"ABC News' Rick Klein and Dean Norland Report: House Minority Leader John Boehner needed only three words to serve notice that President-elect Barack Obama is nowhere close to achieving the big bipartisan vote on the stimulus package he wants so badly.
"There was no Republican input at all involved in what House Democrats outlined today," Boehner, R-Ohio, said at a news conference at the Capitol. "I just took a moment to look over the draft from Chairman [David] Obey and the draft or outline from Chairman [Charlie] Rangel. Oh, my God.
"I just can't tell you how shocked I am at what we're seeing. You know it's clear that they're moving on this path along the flawed notion that we can borrow and spend our way back to prosperity.""
By May, we should have another umpteen billion dollar global warming stimulus to pay for on top of the currently debated stimulus package which should end up at around $1 Trillion. >>
Folks, this is getting downright scary. We are at the leading edge of the biggest, most devastating financial hurricane to ever hit the United States of America, all perpetrated by those we elected to lead and protect us. The Republicans seem paralyzed and dumbstruck. Is there no way to stop this disaster? Does ANYONE have any ideas?
I hear crickets.
