    There was no mention of any Republicans 'screaming' and, as we know, the sequester cuts were Obama's idea. Perhaps that's related to his inability to present a responsible budget.


    Actually that related to the military and was opposed by both sides of the house, as well as the majority of the American people. Most Back Cuts Overall – But Not to the Military - ABC News

    If you are, as you say, worried about the deficit, why is Bush your hero? Defending him by saying he's "Not as bad as Obama" is really dumb.
    Given the choice of Bush vs. Gore and Bush vs. Kerry, I chose wisely. What you fail to recognize is that Bush never had debt exceeding our annual GDP and 1 trillion of the debt charged to Bush was due to 9/11, you remember that event in September 2001 that the American people said they would never forget? Apparently you did.

    You and others will do anything possible to divert from Obama to Bush. Bush isn't in office but like with all people like you results really don't matter. I would take the Bush results today in a heartbeat over what we have in the WH right now and BLS.gov, BEA.gov, and the U.S. Treasury support my position. Too bad results don't matter in your world.

    Anything you want to give must be taken away. Those you plan to take from are those who earn it and those you plan to give too are simply those who take - without earning.

    I would support a sales tax increase. Its time the bottom dwellers contribute to the government they live off.

    You'll do anything to defend your hero. Why does conservatism create such devotion in it's followers? Why do results only matter to you when it's Obama, but Bush's results get sugarcoated and -- "blame the Democrats."

    How's that red Kool-Aid?

    Given the growth of poverty, the shrinking of the middle class, and the flight of money, the poor may be the only ones left to tax. Who would you suggest to make up the shortfall?

    Come on already. SCREAMING means complaining and not being happy with the situation,. And I strongly suspect you know damn well that is what it means. And I provided ample evidence of that on behalf of Republicans.

    Re: Republicans mount shock comeback, erase Democrats’ edge in eyes of Americans

    Now if the media would do it's job and the clueless Obamabots would open their eyes they would see that what the Tea Party people were saying about Obamacare during the shutdown lead up was true we might have a chance of turning this monster around. But that would require honesty on the part of the media and the supporters, so it is not likely to happen. Meanwhile the supporters of Obamacare are still not signing up. Speaks volumes of the integrity of liberalism, doesn't it? Obama lied, his administration lied, they are STILL lying about it, the supporters will not shoulder the load and yet the rhetoric continues.

    You do understand how taxes work?

    You do understand how government spending works?
