How much of your fabricated number $20 Trillion is W responsible for?come on now,don't have me copy/paste the embarrassing facts,come clean with facts...here is one...he blatantly lined the pockets of the wealthy during his 8 years,here is another,can we agree that a war costs money? how about 2 wars at the same time?Bush did cause a lot of the debt. However Obama in on track to triple what Bush did in 8 years. That is a face. He has added more publicly held debt than any previous president.
Okay i'll give you another,there were more people unemployed the day after W left office than the 1st day he took office.
and under Obama it rose all the way to 10%, now its gone back down to 7.8 where Bush left it. Way to make a difference!
Republicans all over the country introduced laws to limit certain people's voting rights. If no birth certificate exists then how do you get one? There are a lot of older black people who were never issued birth certificates.
“Limit certain people’s voting rights”??? Name one of those Laws? The Laws which they are proposing , is to make certain you are the person, you say you are. IT’S NO BIG DEAL! I didn’t see anyone complaining, when the government told people to get a Photo-ID for their Food Stamp Card. And that is not a racial comment, because more white are on welfare than blacks.
Like I've said, we see the Republican Party as the party of hate and fear.
You see the GOP that way; that’s the problem. You never look at the morons in your own party, with their hate and fear-mongering (Chris Matthews, Barbara Streisand, Whoopi Goldberg, Maxine Waters, etc.). Type Charles Barron into your search engine! This is a New York City Democratic Councilman, who makes Russ Limbaugh or Donald Trump, look like choir-boys, when it comes to hate. How about Dems always saying, Biden didn’t mean it, when he said “their gonna put you’all back in chains”? Wanna know how many blacks in the ‘hood believe it? Trust me on this: A Lot! That’s not fear?
George Bush would have never won Florida in 2000 had the states' Republicans not pushed through voter suppression laws.
Oh, Yeah! Who was the person, who designed those ballots, which caused all the confusion? Are you ready for this? Are you sure? It was a woman from the Florida Democratic Party. Case Closed!
8 years later the deficit was a surplus so I just really can't believe that we all knew the country was in deep financially all the way back in 1992. The internet and housing booms of the 90s had most people feeling pretty secure.
Those figures about the “surplus” were misleading. Even the CATO Institute jumped all over that. The U.S. Government Accounting Office, even admitted it. But, you’re right; Clinton was doing a great job with the economy. Until we found out that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, were backing loans, which many people couldn’t afford the mortgage payments. This sent the housing market into a free-fall. Clinton was a champion of Mac and Mae.
Yes, you are supposed to have your ID on you at all times. Unfortunately not everyone is eligible to have one. Therein lies the problem with having to have one to vote.
Your own statement, answers the question! If a person isn’t ELIGIBLE, then they shouldn’t be allow to vote.
Romney would have taken it in a far worse direction, basically the direction that got us into this mess in the first place.
You don’t know that! We do know that Romney has been a problem-solver most of his life. Our Olympic Program was in deep trouble, until he took over and stop the bleeding. We do know that Massachusetts was one of the States ranked at the bottom in job creation, before he took over. After he left, they were 29<sup>th</sup>. Now, to my favorite: BAIN-CAPITAL! And as far as I’m concern, this is where he could’ve won the election! I know what people are saying, “I’m crazy”. Let’s make believe during one of the debates, the topic of out-sourcing of jobs comes up. Romney should’ve said this:
Fine, Mr. President (or Mr./Mrs. Moderator), let’s talk about my time at Bain and the out-sourcing of jobs. But please, please give me a lot and I mean a lot of time, to talk about how many thousands and thousands of jobs, Bain Investment Companies created right here in America. And I don’t mean just in rich and middle-class areas. Let’s talk about the jobs we created in low-income areas, like in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, East New York, Detroit and even in the president’s home city of Chicago. Want more proof? Go to Newark, New Jersey and ask Mayor Corey Booker, what Bain-Capital Companies did for his city. Seven or Eight years ago, most companies were running away from Newark, But our firms went and help create jobs. Mayor Booker was talking about this a few months ago, but someone in his party, told him to button-up.
This is what I would’ve told Romney to say, if I were one of his campaign advisers. Don’t run away from your past at Bain, run to it! This is the same strategy many Offensive Coordinators use, when going up against a great defensive player….run at him. By the way, when Romney did leave Bain, that’s when the in-fighting at the firm started. Mr. Bain had to ask Romney to come back and help calm things down. That’s why they call him a “solver”.
The president is open to cutting entitlement programs that don't work and adjsuting programs what aren't functioning properly but he also understands that a lot these programs are necessary for our country. The right never seems interested in keeping any programs that help the poor.
We have not seen any proof of this, yet. By the way, how many more programs can we give the poor? Look at those “special” Social Security Programs: Messed-up your life with drugs or crime? No Problem! Welcome aboard, even if you didn’t pay hardly anything into the system.
Most of the "hood" people who are upset with Obama it's because they expected him to be focused on black issues instead of issues that affect the entire country.
Have you ever live in the ‘hood? I live in it, most of my life. Two-Thirds of the people in the ‘hood, are not focus on important issues with their lives. Once again, trust me on that!
The right tends to think everyone has to go it alone but the left believes that we are all in this together.
Once again, this is a totally false statement! Paul Ryan’s Father used a government grant, to help him start his business. Many people have! Even when I was a Democrat, debating Republicans, I’ve never heard a GOP say something like that. Stop making-up things! You sound like that garbage on MSNBC.
How much of your fabricated number $20 Trillion is W responsible for?come on now,don't have me copy/paste the embarrassing facts,come clean with facts...here is one...he blatantly lined the pockets of the wealthy during his 8 years,here is another,can we agree that a war costs money? how about 2 wars at the same time?
Okay i'll give you another,there were more people unemployed the day after W left office than the 1st day he took office.
It’s not $20 Trillion (not yet)! It’s about $17 Trillion! And yes, I agree with you, 100% about “W” adding to the deficit. And yes, Bush/Cheney was in bed with Halliburton and other corporations. The same way Obama was in bed with Solyndra. Oh, I’m Sorry! Please don’t run away! You can’t get ONE, freaking Democratic to talk about how the Obama Administration, gave Solyndra the money without the Energy Board approval and how the money disappeared.
What a joke that democrats champion women. They had the chance to give Hiliary Clinton the white house but they chose to go with a guy who had the least experience in history as their nominee. After Benghazi democrats tossed out her as a sacrificial lamb as they did Susan Rice.
Liberals are hilarious with defending Obama's you didn't build that remarks but torching Romney for his one line of a speech. His whole speech to his friends were that 47% of the country has already made up their mind to vote for Obama then gave examples. Was it completely factual true, not completely but Obama's debate on how the military does not use bayonet's anymore was factually wrong as well.
Obama doesn't care about black people, white people, latino's or any specific group just which ever is giving him the most money and attention at the time. He cares about whoever likes him in the moment. How many of his black pals has he sold out, how many white pals has he sold out, how many women in power he appointed has he sold out. He only cares about himself and his legacy.
That 47% was probably federal income tax or something.
Probably,or something...surely it wasn't the height of arrogance feeling he was surrounded by others with similar beliefs.
You know the ones the president was talking about when he was saying he
only wanted to raise raxes on the rich b/c the middle class was hurting
and then allowed the entire middle class to have less $$ in their
paychecks this month when their social security tax went up.
What tax bracket would this Midddle Class you seem to champion be in?
Oh Unions are concerned about the influx of undocumented workers now? lol
By having a concomitant effect on wages,Reagan broke the backs of unions,and if there was ever a time to make a run for the border that was the signal,and they've been coming in droves ever since.
The Tax Cuts, duh. Working women benefit from keeping more of their own
$$ also. Also, the unborn victims of violence act which adds
protections for women who choose to have their children. Democrats
opposed this because they were more worried about protecting abortion
than women in favor of pro-abortion groups who falsely call themselves
"pro-choice" groups. They also kill more minorities a year then all the
white power groups combined.
Why do the majority of working American women vote Democrat?
White power groups killing minorities?
It's called an estimate. A conservative one at that. Considering that
Obama shows no interest at all in reducing the debt and if he were to
accumulate the same amount of debt he did his first term, the debt will
be over 22 trillion. Go ahead and copy and paste away. I can copy and
That dog won't hunt... The first $1 trillion deficit was under George W. Bush, and he was the one who built up the spending side and reduced the revenue side to create our current annual deficits.
Sure wars cost $$, but they aren't supposed to be permanent. I haven't
seen the Dems talk about where as the spending decreases that they'll
use it to reduce the debt, but rather find other places to spend it.
BTW, do you think the reasons for the Afghan war were unjust? Should
Osama Bin Laden just been allowed to create terrorist acts to kill
Americans w/o any repercussions? Also, the Dems voted to go to Iraq
also. If you're going to claim that it was b/c Bush lied. Go ahead and
prove it, instead of being a blind sheep to the Dems telling you he
did, in order to not be held responsible for their vote.
And today American soldiers patrol the streets of cities in countries Republicans brand as "Terrorist Havens" in order to fund American defense contractors with Republican stock holders.Cheney hatched the plot to invade Afghanistan,and that makes sense considering his Haliburton connection and the oil platforms they build in the Caspian Sea.The Afghan invasion was more about installing surveillance towers to watch China and Russia...lets not kid ourselves.After being discovered by American military advisors observing Afghani Freedom Fighters hold their own during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan,one leader stood out as being genuinely concerned for the well being of his country and people,his name was Osama Bin Laden,and he learned the art of terrorism right here in the good old USA...GH Bush was directing the CIA at the time and gladly signed off on it.The training of Bin Laden was to have him lead the entire effort to beat back the Russians and they did.Bin Laden was told in return for his victory the US would aid and help rebuild his war torn country.When the US reneged on that promise he vowed revenge...and that happened on September 11th 2001,an act he would pay for with his life.I'm a registered Independant.
What did the Dems do to stop those bad housing loans to people with bad credit?
Squeeze out some toothpaste,now put it back in the tube...yeah,Democrats can't do it either
