    I think that about covers it, thanks for the clarification.
    The U.S. Govts. word is as good as gold and always will be. A truly "exceptional" nation could have it no other way.
    Do you actually expect me to rebut this obvious piece of intellectual dishonesty, or are you just pulling my leg?

    So would you still have these funds invested in very secure special issue treasury securities or marketable treasury securities or.....?

    Nice try at yet another in a long series of moving the goal posts.

    I told you that Republicans were determined to defeat him BEFORE he ever took office. You said that was just my opinion. You were just proven wrong AGAIN with the Limbaugh column which came before Inauguration day 2009.

    Even if you were informed of such ( I see no supporting documentation) that does not make it true.



    I made a statement, unless you are a liberal that doesn't relate to you.
    Your statement was fallacious and fueled by emotion. Unless you can provide documentation.


    Reagan and GHW Bush agreed to raise taxes in a deal to cut spending, we got the tax increases but not the spending cuts. Bush's agreement was 3 for 1. Did Congress ever cut the budget?
    Again please supply a source.

    Where is the money going to come from to pay those obligations? Why won't you or any other big govt. liberal answer the question?

    Doesn't matter what the Republicans wanted because he got 52% of the vote. how much of that vote has now left him? Keep ignoring his results and buying his rhetoric.

    It they don't drive...then why should they be burdened with highway and bridge construction?

    You are putting me to sleep. Ever hear of "Cognitive Rigidity".

    You have asked this question before. It has been answered before. Have you forgotten the previous answers? They are always the same.

    When you pretend to reply to something you reproduce, do you even make a halfway attempt at speaking to it... it least as a lame pretense?

    I told you that Republicans were determined to defeat him BEFORE he ever took office. You said that was just my opinion. You were just proven wrong AGAIN with the Limbaugh column which came before Inauguration day 2009.
