    All that means is that you like the Obama regime more than you love liberty. I get it. Every generation has its tyrants to battle. You are on the side of the tyrants. We have seen bad times before. Roosevelt was a disaster for this nation. He had the good sense to die in office and be on the winning side in a world war.

    And the monster in the White House, what has he done to benefit the United States?

    You seem to have a lot of passion for someone who has generated the very poor economic results we have today. Is it his vacations that have impressed you the most because it certainly cannot be the economic results generated? stop buying what you are told and actually get the facts about what he has done.

    Of course the debt is still increasing. As long as there is a deficit, the debt will continue to increase.
    And, sure, the government spends too much money, and will as long as the citizenry expects the government to continue to try to solve all our problems.
    My point is that, had Romney won the election, and had the deficit been cut in half, the Republicans would be screaming that their guy cut the deficit in half and that the MSM was ignoring it.
    and my point is that it really doesn't matter who who is in the WhiteHouse, at least not when it comes to the size of the deficit.

    That is your opinion, how do you know what Romney would have done? Think Romney would have taken over GM/Chrysler, proposed Obamacare, bailed out Union contracts with stimulus money, had 21 plus million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers 4 years after the end of the recession? One month does not make a surplus and we are still headed to a huge yearly deficit. What has Obama proposed that actually cut spending?

    Ok. And I would have been saying so what if Romney cut the deficit in half, just as I am saying so what now. I'm not a Republican, and I didn't vote for Romney. Your point is valid in response to all these conservative Republicans saying its nothing, but by responding to me you're preaching to the choir.

    Funny, I didn't know Obama has the power to do whatever he wants.

    actually I'm not his biggest fan, but do you liken him to Hitler as well? thinking that that is a tad over the top makes me passionate about the president? some of you posters truly are scary, but it especially scares me to think you may have procreated ...

    Actually, I am in my office, a nice, 24' x 28' space with eight large windows, 14' ceilings, eleven seven-foot high oak bookcases, and a half-dozen computers.

    I am fine. It is the nation that is ill.
