Obama isn't responsible for any interest on the 10.6 trillion dollars in debt but he is responsible for the interest on the 6.4 trillion dollars generated under his term. I would have thought that you would have learned that in school or haven't you got to that class yet?

    Why do you find that suprising? It's the result the GOP wanted.
    That is your opinion but others disagree with you believing the double dip in 81-82 was worse. Obstructionism is a term used by liberal politicians to appeal to the low information voters that support Obama. You see, leadership is about taking the hand you are dealt and solving the problems. Obama hasn't gotten the hand he was dealt yet as apparently it wasn't delivered to the golf courses or while he was in vacation. What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of ignorance that you are showing.

    Since debt isn't a current problem, your fixation with it is part of the conservative deflection campaign. It's all you guys got.

    Let me guess, your solution to the Bush Meltdown is more tax cuts for Paris Hilton and deregulating the financial industry.

    BWHHAHAHAHH!

    Like a broken record.

    Please post govt data showing that we are talking in less revenue per year because of tax cuts?

    Sorry - not liberal economics so the concept probably went over your head. Canadian economics says that spending more than you take in increases debt - try living your own life the way your government does and see how far you get.

    1. Please list the total cost of the debt Obama inherited, and the interest rate of the debt.
    2. Please list the total cost of the Afghanistan war, and who was President when it began.
    3. Please list the total cost of the Iraq war, and who was President when it began.
    4. Please list the GDP by year since Bush II took office.
    5. Please list unemployment since Bush II took office.

    If you list those things, we can together as a forum determine which President(s) are to blame for the present debt and the economy in general.

    Debt isn't a problem in your world, neither is high unemployment, low economic growth, and massive dependence on the govt. What exactly are the issues that concern you? Maybe when you get your first job you will realize that it isn't an expense to the govt. to keep more of what you earn regardless of what you income is?

    Let me help you out, if I point to a quote and label it as hypocrisy, that is a label of the statement. Apparently this is understood differently north of the US border.


    And you pointed out no hypocracy on my part, you simple pointed out your inability to comprehend a concept as opposed to a talking point.
    Suddenly you understand the statement was labeled as hypocrisy! Amazing!

    And I think I made clear that arguing against moves towards UHC from someone who does not want UHC overturned in his own country.....is pretty hypocritical.

    But if you feel the need to hide under your momma's apron, that's fine with me - calling you out for what you are was well worth it.
    Who is hiding? If you cannot abide by the rules here....be gone.
