    You keep proving that I'm right

    Rightwingers can't handle the facts, like how clinton created 22 million jobs and bush* inherited a growing economy and he destroyed jobs and the economy

    When rightwingers get pwned, they run away from the argument while repeating their slogans and lies. I call it "Retreat and Repeat"

    And, to add to that, while a significant percentage of those people are low and middle-income households, the wealthy have benefitted from certain tax credits as well, and they also make up a certain portion of that 45-47%.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, it's the rightwingers who are lying because the facts have a liberal bias.

    Keep saying the same thing over and over again doesn't make it true. Bls doesn't show the 22 million jobs created by Clinton but again what does that have to do with the thread topic. Didn't Obama inherit a AAA Credit rating from Bush?

    50% of 400 is 200 people. You expect them to pay for the 3.7 trillion dollar federal govt?
