    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    I just think the word games are silly. Same thing with the esatate tax or death tax. Who cares what you call it. I would rather discuss the merits versus worry about the slogans from one side or the other.

    You're right, I just find the term "class warfare" to be completely ridiculous. Even more insane than what wing-nuts on the right are usually saying.

    Tax cuts for the rich didn't cause the debt, spending in the name of compassion did, i.e. War on Poverty
    So our actual optional wars didn't create debt but the war on poverty, helping our own citizens did. I'll be waiting on your proof to back that up. LOL!

    "The most recent major report on these costs come from Brown University in the form of the Costs of War project, which said the total for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is at least $3.2-4 trillion". The Pentagon says it is less.

    Financial cost of the Iraq War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The United States is $15 trillion dollars in debt. If spending $12 trillion on the American people helped them, why are there protesters trying to take over Wall Street? Not enough help? Do you think a few trillion more might do the trick?

    Another day older and deeper in debt.

    Your post is confusing because the facts you presented don't have anything to do with your questions. Where do you get the notion that 12 trillion was spent on helping the American people rather then enabling bloated military spending and tax cuts for the wealthy for the last 30 years?

    Noticed you didn't point to Bush's 14000 Dow but then again that would force you to admit that the President doesn't control the Dow. Amazing, isn't it, Obama approval rating in the upper 30's and low 40's with that great Dow? That should tell you something.

    Nice diversion, you were talking about the wars taking away support for seniors. I have provided data but as usual you ignore it. My SS benefits didn't change because of the wars and the debt. You will find that to be true when you start collecting. Keep running from reality.

    Congress approval rating is at 11% (Saw it on the news last night). Also, if neither president has anything to do with the Dow, why are you even arguing or bashing either president? Hell, you should be saying Obama did a good job because the economy is not his fault.

    Congressional approval ratings are irrelevant since Congressional elections aren't national, they are local. How is your Representatives approval rating?

    Since most liberals blame Bush for everything why is it wrong to blame Obama?
