    you said plain as day that a workable health care compromise was prevented because we don't have enough communists in office.

    you can run from this factual interpretation of the written word, but that was the meaning behind your quote.

    BHO presented one budget and it was rejected by everyone. Since then there has not been a budget.

    The economy is just doing great, huh?

    The president can only offer suggestions. He has no official role in what budget Congress actually creates (or doesn't create). His only authority regarding the budget is to sign or veto whatever Congress passes...which, as it turns out, doesn't seem to be happening anyway.

    It is LARGER than it has been in the past, so of course the national debt is going to increase more than in the past if you measure in absolute dollar figures. *GASP* Obama presided over a larger increase in the deficit than, say, Woodrow Wilson, when the GDP was 1/500th of what it is today? Stop the presses!

    Keep going, you're on a roll. Literally every post you make proves that Obama was absolutely correct in that YouTube clip you posted.

    Boldly prove where Allen West has called for the rounding up of "communists" and the black listing of actors etc., then we can agree on historically correct comparisons !
    If I were you I would take your own advice and try reading a book, possibly one apt to this subject matter before replying again.

    so, in your unique world, the comparison is only valid if the events unfold exactly as they did in the past
    with some age you will learn that is not a requirement for such comparison to be a legitimate one
    in this instance we have a recognized politician calling out American citizens to be communists without any proof of those claims ... as happened before, approximately 60 years ago
    if you are unable to grasp that similarity then you are simply unable, or unread, or both, and it would be pointless to hold your hand any further

    Not really sure why this is so hard to believe since people like Bernie Sanders and Maxine Waters admits to being a socialist...I'm sure there are plenty more.

    This is where it originated. It was proven false. It was a copy paste smear job.

    What happened is a document claiming that it listed the members of the Democratic Socialists America caucus in congress was made. What it actually listed was the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. It was a phony.

    Defend this politically partisan hack job of an article and your left-wing ideology any way you can but I am sure everyone can see when the pig has lipstick and brother this sow is HUGE ! If one wants to take a comment and stretch it into a strawman then by all means continue to reply with partisan zeal to this post and thread the way you have so far !

    So they went from being Socialists to now being card carrying Marxists or was it Communists. Man all the liberals just want to dig deep into the mud and sling it around hoping it makes the GOP look dirty...
