    The average GDP growth during years with a Democratic President (5.1%) is nearly three times as great as those with a Republican President (1.8%). The average GDP growth during the entire administrations of these last 12 Presidents is also quite different. The four with the greatest average GDP growth are all Democrats: Roosevelt 6.4%, Truman 6.2%, Kennedy 5.7%, and Johnson 4.2%. The four Presidents whose administrations saw the weakest economic growth were all Republicans: Hoover -7.3%, Bush41 1.9%, Bush43 2.4%, and Eisenhower 2.7%. For simplicity, the economic growth of the entire term is associated with the elected President, for the unfinished terms of Roosevelt and Kennedy.

    Presidents? who needs a congress if the president is David Blaine?

    It's not like our congresses job is to write law - some of which is clearly beyond their realm of understanding and pay grade....

    Is this the angle you want to come at this with? Really?

    I suppose you have some sort of evidence to support this oft repeated (and totally ridiculous) lie?

    So Susan Rice wasn't given talking points that the CIA and State Dept. knew weren't true? Do you get any news were you live or do you just get a direct feed from the Obama Administration?

    Why would anyone want to be taken seriously on this forum? 90% of what is posted here is unsubstantiated angst and frankly ridiculous predictions and opinions with little to no basis in realty.

    I post exactly to the quality of the discourse on this forum.

    In any case, no one has exactly been able to articulate why anything the President's done in regards to these incidents actually qualifies as a scandal, and they won't because they aren't.

    Was Watergate a scandal? Do you understand the definition of a scandal? Lying is a scandal and what Susan Rice did was lie to the American people based upon talking points that came from this Administration. Now I understand how badly you want this President to succeed but the reality is he was incompetent when elected and more incompetent when he was re-elected. All you had to do was take a few minutes to check his resume. We are seeing the results of your failure and the failure of all those who elected and re-elected him as you buy rhetoric and ignore results.

    So the actions in Benghazi were indeed the reaction to a YouTube video? Interesting

    We now know it was the CIA who wanted to mislead the terrorists by not mentioning them. You should take that up with them. Rice did nothing but repeat what she was told. I see you don't care about national security and are mad that we tried to mislead Alqeada. I see absolutely nothing wrong with it, but I am not a supporter of Alqeada. Maybe you are?

    Keep buying that, has anyone been brought to justice? What exactly did they accomplish by allowing Susan Rice to lie to the American people? You are so gullible and easily brainwashed by the leftwing ideology.
