How is that political?

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

[Mod Edit]

Economists will tell you the reason they sit on cash is that there's lack of demand, which is understandable given the unemployment and the near-meltdown of the banking system.

But to admit that would be to open yourself to the notion of exploring fiscal policies to stimulate or replace some of the shortfall in demand.
