Those are the facts and they cannot be disputed. The reform proposed would have created a new regulator and taken oversight away from HUD. Demoocrats claimed this would lead to less affordable housing for minorities and opposed the reform.

    Dayam, talk about a fail. Nothing you posted proves that Democrats blocked either bill in the Senate.

    All you've shown is that Democrats were against it. Umm, that not new information. Still, Democrats didn't block either bill. They didn't have to -- Senate Leadership didn't want them passed either.

    Is this the way you live in the real world by looking in the rear view mirror? Do you have any solutions to the massive entitlement state Obama is building? Do you have any solutions to the problems of high unemployment and low economic growth? Any solutions to the problems with the debt? Of course not as yours is to blame someone else and never accept responsibility for the poor choice you made in voting for Obama twice.

    And what has the GOP answer to the debt situation been? Even the guy you voted for in 2012 was going to give the military MORE MONEY then they requested. That's an INCREASE in spending, something which you said you were against. However, since Romney had an "R" in front of his name, you excused it.

    All he has to do is use YOUR playbook and say Romney would have been much worse and that's logical to you.

    Pathetic that you lecture someone on their faults for voting for a failure twice and yet you voted for one of the biggest failures Bush not once, but THREE TIMES. You have ZERO credibility.

    It is going to take some tough love to get this country back on track and tough cuts in all programs including the military. We will never know what McCain or Romney would have done because the Obamabots voted for Obama and more entitlement spending as well as new entitlements.

    Your opinion noted but we do know that Romney had a real job and real experience. We will never know. We know what we got with Obama and too many like the entitlements and dependence checks.

    Again, your opinion noted but the actual results including 2008 weren't nearly as bad as you and others want to claim. The entirety of the Bush administration showed much better numbers but you continue to buy the leftwing and media spin. BEA.gov, BLS.gov, and the U.S. Treasury all show averages much higher than anything Obama has generated. Still waiting for your answers. We can do nothing about the Bush numbers and a true leader accepts those numbers and works to make things better, not divide like Obama has done.

    I don't disagree with you in principle, but essentially, none of it matters. Eventually, someone is going to have to put on their Big Boy Pants and get our fiscal house in order. The spending by our government is insane, no matter which party is in power. All of us who are paying the bills are getting bled dry.

    All this wah wah crybaby , "your guy spent more money than may guy", or wah wah "my guy's better than your guy", has got to stop.

    And right now that is neither party. Both sides are playing this pointing game. If you read Conservatives posts he puts all the blame on the left and virtually none on the right. I've shown that both sides have their issues and it doesn't matter if one side spends less than the other, both sides are STILL spending.

    Conservative likes to compare Obama with Bush, yet ignores that when Bush was president his spending was worse than Clinton's. It's been an increase for decades and no side shows signs of it stopping, only who gets the piece of government cheese changes.

    It is you, Sheik, and Pb that want to divert from the Obama record to Bush claiming that Bush was terrible which obviously in your world gives Obama a pass on being terrible. The economic results of Obama is worse. What President in history had a 6 trillion dollar debt in 4 years let alone 8? What President ever had over 100 million dependent on taxpayer assistance? What President ever demonized individual wealth creation and promoted the entitlement state? What President ever spent this much to have a drop in employment four years after taking office?

    Yeah, tough love that the GOP has shown it is not willing to do. And we will never know what Gore or Kerry would have done either because the Bushbots voted for Bush and more spending. It works both ways Con.

    Your opinion noted as just that, your OPINION.

    I've given answers before Con, not going to repeat myself since it is clear you don't care about anything else besides bowing down to the "R". As long as the person has an "R" in front of their name, you will grovel to them no matter what the results.

    And the economics of Bush were worse than Clintons. Your point, you still voted for Bush twice despite the worse economics than Clintons? As for diverting, it isn't. It's fact that Bush spent worse than Clinton. Yet at the time that was ok for you.

    What president at the time had more debt than when Bush was president. Are you so naive that you can't see each president has spent more and more than the previous. It has NOTHING to do with right and left, only what is spend on. You continue to think the GOP is different. The only difference is how they spend more money.

    Interesting logic you have, Bush destroyed the economy but Obama is powerless to implement anythihg to make it better even when he had overwhelming numbers his first term.
    Why don't you try responding to his post?
