I think Alan Greenspan would be good at redoing the tax codes...even if we did have to prop him up and put dark sunglasses on him! LOL He'd probably do better dead than most of the live ones up there! LOL

The conservatives should be reminding voters that they won't be as tolerant of "pork barrel" spending as the present Congress.

Thanks for the entertaining segment of "Raw Politics". I think John McCain is ready for late-night TV with the wisecracks he's been making lately. He's on a roll!

I don't think the two sides should be accusing each other of spending too much taxpayers' money, since they both do it. Instead, why don't they reach out to each together and make a new law wiping out earmarks. Yeah, that's gonna happen...

You'd think that cutting Congressional spending would be the one thing politicians would agree on if they want to get on the good side of voters! Why don't we all agree to stop talking about it, and just slash those Washington budgets now.

I'd be very nervous if I was Alan Greenspan. I mean who wants to hear someone say your name with the word "dead" in the same sentence?! I guess it's a left-handed compliment to say someone was so good you wish they could still be around even if they're dead.

very funny "Raw Politics" - but even if I hear candidates say they're interested in cutting spending (no matter which side of the aisle), I don't believe them .

Lot of talk and hot wind. The only difference in spending between Democrats and Republicans that I have ever noticed is what they spend the money on - but they both tend to spend too much of it.

This was a repeat from Friday's show. What's happened to this blog - do we need to prop it up and put sunglasses on it like Weekend at Bernies??

Conservative spending? How can you explain your so called "conservative" spending? Want to start with trailers that rotted, computers that disappeared (with confidential info)as an example?

This is without a doubt the most selfish, don't give a damn about anything else, cheat and lie to the world, administration this country has known.

And you want me to believe you are "conservative"? Get the junk out of the trunk, replace it w/honest, on our side people and see how much you can salvage before 11/08.

Give us a break, we're sick and tired of this BS!

Absolutely. The on-going chit-chat about Hillary Clinton from the right wing is only increasing her populairty. The truth of the matter is she is not a good candidate and will lead this country to disaster. As a democrate I would rather vote to Ron Paul than Hillary Clinton.
