    Focus on what you posted, the Bush tax cuts were extended by the Lame Duck Democrat Congress and Bush's last budget was 3.1 trillion dollars and Obama is spending over 3.6 billion dollars. To me that is putting spending on steroids.

    When the alternative is Al Gore, John Kerry, or Barack Obama, you bet I will defend the Republican
    We are speaking or OUR opinions, though you misrepresent the opinions of democrats. And it does not matter if the tax cuts were extended. That's you throwing out another squirrel moment. You want to excuse republicans from any responsibility. it's that conservative belief in personal responsibility that you don't seem to understand. You blame everyone but those you support, ducking and hiding from from responsibility.

    And invanding Iraq did not prevent another attack. Note were were not attacked between 9/11/2001 and 3/19/2003. The belief that we would be was misguided and without any evidence to support it. Clinton did nothing after the first twin towers effort and got form 1993 to 2001.

    I know it is useless to ask folks to think about this stuff beyond the superficial, but Iraq did nothing to help us. The invasion only hurt us.

    But, let's focus, Bush spent. A lot. You make excuses for him, but never a dmeocrat. Isn't that so?

    That'll be a short list.

    Let em start with the overreaction after the fact:

    1. Invaded Iraq.

    Yes, you are entitled to your OPINION.

    Regarding spending, Bush and Congress spent too much but Bush didn't create 4 trillion in debt in 2 1/2 years nor did Bush have a net job loss, bail out union pensions d1squised as stimulus, have a declining labor force by driving people out of the labor market but then again Bush isn't the issue here, Obama and his results are. Those results will be on the ballot in 2012 and he has no economic plan in place to change the economic results. 16.2% unemployment and under employment is why his JAR is so low but guess what spending more money is what he is going to call for to improve the economy. Isn't that was the 2009 Stimulus was supposed to do?

    March 2003, 1 1/2 years after 9/11 but don't let that fact get in the way of your opinions as once again diverting from the Obama record is what liberals do.

    Isn't amazing how they justified Iraq by saying that "we're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here," when Iraq never sponsored terror attacks against the U.S. ... and then turned around and rejected our minimal involvement in Libya, when Ghaddafi has sponsored multiple terror attacks against U.S. citizens?

    Bush barely had his feet wet as a president when 911 occurred, and the attacks were the result of planning that stretched back many years.

    In a similar way, the economic crisis that occurred soon after Obama became president was based upon factors long in place, and for which he had no real control.

    Instead of all the childish partisanship, why not step outside the blinders created by such long enough to recognize that events that result from a complex series of other events years in the making are not so simplistic as you would like them to be?

    Did you serve in Iraq or how did Iraq affect you or your family? Sounds like a bad case of BDS since that is all I ever see from you

    About as useless as asking you to think, you complain about one side .. then run around making excuses for the spending from your side .. . so you are any different how ? Bush added near 6t to our debt in 8 years .. . or about 750B a year .. . that's a bad enough record, Obama in his first three years is going to add 3.6T to our debt, or 1.2T per year .. .if he is to last 8 years .. .that means he is going to add 9.6t making our national debt over 20T dollars

    Now I'm sorry, but I thought Obama was elected to fix our problems, not make them worse. While you prefer to talk about what Bush did, I prefer to talk about what is going on now, but maybe you weak minded liberals feel that living in the past .. . you will be able to change it .
