"Obama and his Administration, including Jerry McNerney"

Jerry McNerney is not a member of the administration. Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats proposed paying down debt.

From the article: "Governments globally need to cut debt and avoid bailing out struggling companies"

But it was Bush and the Republicans (like David Harmer) who proposed TARP and bailed out their wealthy friends on Wall Street. Do we really want to throw those bums back in?

Also from the article:

“I am bullish on Canada,” he told the audience. “I prefer Canada to the U.S. or even Europe.”

Interesting.
