    No problem, I am sure your vote was cast a few times by Democrat activists. I did hear that activists in Chicago are upset however since the city is broke and no longer putting indigents names on head stones in the cemetary. That is making it hard for Democrat registration groups to register the dead which could make Chicago in play in the 2012 elections.

    How much impact do you suppose that $1.2 trillion had on the deficit Bush handed Obama? The deficit for FY2009 was $1.8 trillion. That $1.2 trillion we're now learning about isn't even the $1.2 trillion Bush's FY2009 budget was expect to fall short of.

    Aren't you the one complaining 80 times a day about the debt? How much do you suppose that drove up the debt??

    Where's your outrage, Con? How come you're never outraged at Bush or his peeps, no matter how badly they ****ed this country? Obama sneezes and we get 400 posts from you whining that Obama sneezed.


    The $1.2 trillion peak on Dec. 5, 2008 -- the combined outstanding balance under the seven programs tallied by Bloomberg -- was almost three times the size of the U.S. federal budget deficit that year and more than the total earnings of all federally insured banks in the U.S. for the decade through 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.


    Well, Con? Any outrage? Any at all?

    That's just part of the huge pile of mess Bush left for Obama.

    Remember this oldy but goody?

    "The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.
    The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.

    In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.

    Details of the shipments have emerged in a memorandum prepared for the meeting of the House committee on oversight and government reform which is examining Iraqi reconstruction. Its chairman, Henry Waxman, a fierce critic of the war, said the way the cash had been handled was mind-boggling. "The numbers are so large that it doesn't seem possible that they're true. Who in their right mind would send 363 tonnes of cash into a war zone?"

    Since when do you care that polls need to be the latest? Let's not forget you were the one posting Obama's JAR was 39% even when the latest Gallup poll at the time said 40%. You cherry pick polls you like the best. Just like you cherry pick GDP numbers; when you like nominal figures better you use them, when real figures suit you better, you switch to real figures.

    Obama and his cohorts must be worried. With these numbers, the WH is taking Perry more seriously than you are

    Obama and his cohorts are well aware that he's in a dog fight.

    Allow me to educate you on how these things are done
    1) you actually do the work to find my exact quotes making predictions
    2) you print them
    3) you show me where I was wrong

    As I recall....... is lame and does not even come close to cutting it.

    Absolutely, I won't be voting for Bush in 2012 but won't be voting for Obama either as his results on the deficit are worse than Bush's. Bush had nothing to do with 2010 and 2011 spending. Your obsession with a former President is nothing more than a diversion. You really need to get some help for this obsession you have for the past and GW Bush. "Your" incompetent President has results that have given him a declining approval rating and results which will be on the ballot in 2012, not Bush's results.
