Do you realize there was no budget cuts at all, just elimination of the Payroll tax holiday that increased revenue? You think the 3.77 trillion Obama budget is a step towards improving the deficit and reducing the debt?

    By the way, sorry that the facts simply get in the way of your pro Obama rants. Guess we can see you are in the 43% that continues to support him
    see, this is where your inability to convey things economic undermines your ability to make a valid point
    you would want us to suspend belief, and pretend that immediately after inheriting bush's great recession and the sudden loss of millions of jobs, that Obama should somehow be able to operate government with a surplus
    no one with a genuine understanding of governance would make such a profoundly obtuse argument

    notice how thrifty Obama has actually been ... too frugal for those of us who were hoping for a president who would mimic FDR's approach to the joblessness:

    Wow, results don't matter to you do they? Interesting how far we have come that a 680 billion dollar deficit is being touted as a success. and actual results of previous debt are ignored.

    You people are really desperate but it is failing as the JAR shows. Keep defending the indefensible ignoring results.

    Reagan generated 17 million new jobs, doubled GDP, had a 60% growth in FIT revenue, and created a peace dividend all at a cost of 1.7 trillion dollars. Compared to Obama's almost 7 trillion added to the debt and 2 million fewer employed? I can see liberal success means something different to you than in the real world.

    The stimulus was more successful than anybody expected. Almost spectacularly so. Failed leadership in the face of a Republican party on strike in Congress? 40 votes and a Supreme Court challenge against legitimate legislation? Your brain has been replaced by media mush.

    We gave your extreme conservatism a legitimate try. It has failed in almost every way possible in government, business, and religion.

    Yet you campaign to ignore all of that. Nobody who can still think for themselve is that stupid.

    You are certainly part of the 43% that continue to support this empty suit. You bought the rhetoric, too bad 21 million Americans disagree with you as they are on unemployment/discouraged/or under employed. Guess that doesn't matter. You bought the rhetoric about the success of the stimulus yet ignores the verifiable results.

    Name for me exactly what economic policies Obama proposed in 2009-2011 that he didn't get? You continue to believe what you are told but would be better served to actually check BEA.gov, BLS.gov, and the U.S. Treasury Websites. Obama is making Jimmy Carter look good.

    Not with a Republican House on strike.

    Next you'll be saying that wars can be stopped in the middle.

    "Oh, excuse us. We didn't mean to blow up your cities. We're sorry.*"

    Or

    "Moms and Dads, your child died in vain. Just a stupid mistake on our part. "

    Every day people like you, here, demonstrate why conservatives cannot govern. For one thing you are unable to learn from your mistakes and another you avoid personal responsibility like the plague.

    Peddle your failed dogma somewhere else.

    The motto of the goose stepping neo-conservative Republican mafia.

    Ignore failure, deny success.

    Please take a civics course. My so called dogma is backed by verifiable data that you want to ignore.

    Right, results don't matter to the American idol voter like you. Civics isn't a strong suit of any liberal

    We focus on progressive, statist government instead. Government that leads positive change for citizens.

    You focus on helping the wealthy harvest the middle class, the creators of all wealth. Then you are surprised when the country goes to hell under your governance.
