    Hmmm Clinton Gore had a pretty damn impressive record plus Gore had experience at the federal level.

    Are you sure you vote on results not just letters?

Sorry but your vision is of a run of the mill banana republic that abuses the majority for the benefit of the wealthy few. There is no shortage of countries like that, America is unique if you can't abide there is always the door.
    Charity is tax deductable, stop the crowing about how nuch you give. Just think how much more you can give when the tax rates go back. The higher the rates the more your "charity" will make sense.
    Aw, wow, another expert on my personal finances as well as everyone else. Charity is tax deductible? Thanks for clearing that up so then tell me why we need higher taxes to fund programs that charities already do? Interesting how you don't seem to have a clue about taxable income. You think that individuals with less taxable income have the cash to pay more to charities. You really are either very young, very naive, or simply brainwashed. What a totally idiotic statement, tax rates go up and people give more to charity?

    Bush inheirited a balanced budget and turned it into a record deficit. I love that you think his results were better than Clintons. You must agree with Dick "Reagan proved deficits don't matter" Cheney and Ronnie "Starve the beast" Reagan on spending.

    Funny, the U.S. Treasury shows Bush inherited a 1.3 trillion dollar debt from Clinton, where is that budget surplus since the debt rose each and every year of Clinton's term? What is it about liberalism that creates loyalty like you apparently have whereas facts and data mean nothing to you but liberal rhetoric means everything?

    It's funny that you make EXCUSES for Bush yet blame Obama right from the start. You don't hold anyone with an R in front of their name accountable for anything but you hold Obama because he has a D in front of his. Your ODS is in full swing. Keep it up, it's amusing if nothing else as well as your continued personal attacks. It's a sign you have lost.

    and what was the debt AFTER Bush? Oh yeah, you don't care about that since you voted for bigger govt. and bigger govt. spending not once but twice with Bush.

    You would have a lot more credibility if you didn't continue to show that you have Bush Derangement Syndrome as he has been out of office for three years. Making the same false statements over and over again will never make them true. Again, I'll bet I have voted for more Democrats than you have Republicans. The "R" After their name means nothing to me as I am a conservative and will always vote for the better alternative of the two parties. Results matter, not rhetoric. I will not vote for obama because of the results and alternative and voted for Bush because of the results as well as the alternative.

    Bush took office with a 5.7 trillion dollar debt and left it at 10.6 trillion, it is 15. 2trillion today.

    So what was it in Bush's Governorship you supported to vote for him as President in 2000?

    Was it perhaps his renewable energy policy where by law electric utilities were obliged to purchase renewable generated kilowats.

    If results mattered you wouldn't have voted for Bush twice. So you have NO credibility on that issue. He had his chance and in 2004 should have been voted out but YOU and others chose to ignore the results. Again, you have no credibiility and your Obama deranged syndrome is the worst I've seen someone have. You're dismissed.
