    Whether you blame it on GWB now or 100 years from now bottom line is Hussein Obama made a promise when he was running for president......He said he would turn things around and cut the deficit in half or not run for reelection. Well he has made things much worse so the time is now to keep his promise and not run in 2012.......The sad thing is people like you will give him a pass on another lie among many...........I really don't understand the attraction to this guy by you.

    ah, but unrealized demand is infinite, remember?
    So is unrealized potential.
    So is unrealized promise.


    Maybe we should have a contest for how many hollow cliches we can come up with?

    So, the entire commission had to agree, on every point or it was a waste of time...Apparently Obama agrees with you, because he threw it in the trash can.

    Agreed. And which was merely a reflection of the larger political gridlock we have. However, it is the Democrats who promote the greater gridlock, playing nothing but "gotcha" counter-punch politics. It is the Democrat Senate which hasn't passed a budget proposal in over 1000 days. It is Obama who puts together such a flimsy joke-of-a-budget that it is voted down unanimously by the House. Every Dem voted against Obama's plan. So that the Dems can now just demogogue a plan that Republicans passed. Obama and the Dems could not put together a plan that at least the Dems could support. The Democrt solution is "I have no plan, but lets just trash the guys who do have one, OK ?".

    And Obama rejected his own Bowles Simpson. Cause "BS" was about solutions, and we can't have that.

    "Crashing"? "Crashing" are you ****ing kidding me?


    What? A surplus?
    As state earlier which i was going to say: "..was 4.2% when he took office and it stayed within .2% of that number for six months. Of course Bush also inherited a budget surplus and no wars."
    Yea Bush did a "real great job" he really kept that economy around... See late 2007
    Bush also has one of the worst job records on record only creating 3 million jobs throughout his whole eight years...



    Wait and what are these awesome policies Bush brought to save this "horrible economy he was handed by Clinton"?
    Only a true idiot would tout the Clinton surplus after it's been dubunked so thoroughly on here. Hint: You can't increase the debt every year you're in office and still claim a surplus, no matter how many times you want to try to beat that liberal meat, you'll never ejaculate.

    Once again dubunking the same old liberal lies:

    How much surplus did the US have when Clinton left office

    DOW went from 14k to 7k with the dot-com bust, that's pretty damn serious if you ask me.

    Give me a break. This Republican minority has been the most obstructive minority in modern memory. That have shattered the record for filibusters to the point where it has become virtually impossible to do anything without supermajority support. No government can function under these conditions.

    The Myth of the Clinton Surplus |

    DOW went from 14k to 7k with the dot-com bust, that's pretty damn serious if you ask me.
    Only a partisan hack would focus on a silly technical argument (public debt vs gross debt) to deflect attention from the fact that Clinton left Bush a with a virtually balanced budget that was projected to produce serious surplusses in coming years, which he promptly turned into massive deficits.

    By virtually any measure the Great Recession was far far worse than the dotcom recession. Your claim that, "DOW went from 14k to 7k with the dot-com bust" is a flat-out lie. The Dow went from a peak of 11,722 almost a year before Shrub took office to a trough of 7,528 almost two years into his presidency.

    LOL ......
    ... Before taking up their own budget plan for next year, House Republicans pushed a version of President Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget to the floor for a vote, and it was it was unanimously defeated, 414-0.
    That's some new fangled "obstruction" you got there !!

    As has been explained countless times, the Republicans pushed it to a vote knowing that the Democrats had already amended their proposal and no longer supported the one that Republicans put up for a vote. That was partisan foolishness in its purest form.
