Meet the Press " Michael Steele"

RNC CHAIRMAN MICHAEL STEELE: "[T]here is a vibration out here that's unlike anything I've seen before. I've been on my 'Fire Pelosi' bus since September 15th. We get off the bus on October 30th. In that time I've seen a consistent ground swell of excitement and energy toward this election. The voters are tired of the fact that the federal government has not listened to them over the past two years, has moved in its own direction, at its own rhythm and they want to pull back on that. I think you're going to see a wave, unprecedented wave on election day that's going to surprise a lot of people." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 10/24/10)

STEELE: "I think [these midterms] puts us all in a point where, you know, you kind of look down the road to 2012 and say, for the Republicans, what kind of leader is going to emerge to deal more precisely with the economy, with our relations overseas, with, you know, those concerns that people have about jobs here in the country." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 10/24/10)
STEELE: "[W]e philosophically disagree with the direction the President is going. The spending, the debt, the deficit, the burden that's been placed on the backs of future generations is unsustainable. We see that the administration, along with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, are whistling past that graveyard, ignoring the hard facts that we cannot sustain nor afford the continued spending policies of this administration." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 10/24/10)
STEELE: "You'll see over the next two years, I think, the President try to step up his game a little bit. But we'll be there, step for step on all of these issues, clearly delineating the difference between a government that wants to take and redistribute wealth and a free people who are there to create that wealth and save it for the future." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 10/24/10)
"At a recent rally Obama made the statement "the mess he was left with".. I would like to remind everyone the Democrats have been in control of Congress and Senate since 2006. Therefore the Democrats were in control of the budget. Prior to 1994 the Democrats were in control of Congress for 41 years. When the Republicans gained control of Congress in 1994 they balanced the budget and unemployment was low. Democrats have controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

With a Democratic Congress and Senate the deficit is over $13 TRILLION DOLLARS and unemployment at 9.7%.
Let's be fair and give credit to those who have created "the mess" Obama and the Democratic Congress. BE"
