    So it is now liberals fault that conservatives couldn't keep their lies strait? Do you blame us when you get hangnails too?

    This is a joke, right brah? Sometimes I can't tell...
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If you prefer to phrase it that way then Obama's "suggestion" was rejected rejected 414-0.

    Obama Budget Rejected by House in 414-0 Vote


    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.
    Well yes, it is being mentioned in dollar figures. Thats how the debt clock measures it and that's how economists mention it, so i figured I'd follow that tradition.

    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!
    Those Democrats sure can spend, all right. Wilson, the Democrat, was replaced by Harding, a Republican. It's likely the American people will repeat this wisdom.

    Keep going, you're on a roll. Literally every post you make proves that Obama was absolutely correct in that YouTube clip you posted.
    I agree. His has his supporters pegged.

    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
    Do Communists still call themselves Communists?

    It seems they call themselves "Progressives" now. Maybe Marxists. Or Leftists. Or Democrats.

    But few admit to being called "Communist" anymore, even if their sympathies do tend in that direction.

    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.
    The Congressional Progressive Caucus?

    Sounds about right.

    Rep. Allen West: 78-81 House Democrats Are Communists



    via Huffington Post: "Moderator: What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialist?

    West: It's a good question. I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."
