    Words do not cost lives, run up the deficit, cost people their homes...they are words.

    The left has been making ALL of those decisions since mid February 2009.

    Trust me, if and when the Republican party can get over itself, stop circling the wagons and shooting inward, agree on a real candidate and actually win the pot of gold, the Republican friends I have now will be much, much fewer in number.

    If you think what I have to say now is rough on Obama, perhaps is you were to read what I wrote about ****ing Nixon, Reagan at the time, and Bush Sr., you might lose this idea I'm a Teabagger or something
    Well I certainly didn't mean any Offense to you sir. But from my reading of your positions on the various issues here, I would put you in the right wing, not necessarily "Teabagger or something" position. And in fairness, though I haven't seen anything you've posted on Reagan, Nixon and 41. If you have criticised them on issues in which they were wrong, and if you have praised Clinton and Obama on issues where they have been right, then I'll put you in the objective category, and not in the partisan.

Name for me just one Obama economic and foreign policy success during his term in office?
    No, it's not irrelevant. You just don't like the facts.

    Well, there probably is some truth to that, it is a strange one, and we let them have nukes!! However, we worked with them during the Reagan administration. While we were supplying shoulder mounted SAM's to the Mujahideen, the Pakistanis were supplying the directive and training and mostly running the Russian (USSR) opposition.

    From your link, in reference to the Bush budget he sized: . . . its record size . . .

    More:

    That $1.2 trillion projected deficit — the result of bills signed by Republican President George W. Bush — grew substantially after Obama signed his stimulus bill and submitted his own budget. But even so, by the time the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, the actual deficit was $1.4 trillion, CBO said.

    (snip)

    . Bush’s lowest annual deficit was just under $158 billion in fiscal 2002. It reached nearly $459 billion in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2008, and, as we mentioned, was on track to reach $1.2 trillion by the time Obama took office.

    And what exact facts would that be? I am waiting for facts but you post opinions and pass them off as fact. The Treasury, BEA.gov, BLS.gov, and Census provides facts. You wanted links, I gave them to you but as I thought that was a waste of time

    Aw, excuse me but the CBO PROJECTED deficit included 700 billion for TARP and again please show me the signed Bush budget? You don't seem to comprehend that the fiscal year of the U.S. ISN't from October to January

    Oh yeah, for sure. In fact, arming the militant Islamic group Mujahideen, created the power vacuum that brought down the DRA and gave rise to the Taliban who gave quarter to al Qaeda who in turned attacked us on 9/11. See what happens when we allow and excuse presidents to run covert operations.

    I have yet to find much about Obama to praise. I called him "an illusionist with no ideals" some weeks before the '08 election and he hasn't failed to deliver.

    For the record, the Bush Republicans, both, were in the tradition of what I expect of right wing politicians in the US, all about lining the pockets of their friends...while American cheered the killing of Iraqi's, I was asking about all these contractors with huge political ties to the Republican party.

    For the record...I am about the strongest proponent of universal, single pay medical coverage on this board. The move into Obamacare is the furthest thing from a reasonable solution and only makes the whole problem worse as insurance companies will forever gouge the public on the absolute critical issues of health.

    One of my many criticisms of Obama is that he failed to deliver on the whole equal rights for gays he promised, he's avoid the LGBT debate all together, and did not use his majority in the first two years to legalize pot..nor did he even address the issue when it came up at the state level. I consider that cowardice. He has also failed to adress the issue of pension deficits and protection for the elderly who lost their retirement, and that is shameful. Is that right wing? and yes, Bush did too...

    I have condemned the right and NRA goons for much of the gun violence in America and the militarization of your streets, especially the fact I have ****ing assault rifles in my face if and when I come to visit. I have condemned both Iraq wars, Canada's participation in Afghanistan and the current Canadian government's move for American style 'crime busting laws' like mandatory minimum sentences. I have also very much criticized Obama for not fixing the illegals problem, where children of illegals are technically citizens...where he could have - first address the half million per year still coming in, THEN seek a compromise on amnesty.

    The Patriot Act was the nail in the coffin of rights and freedoms in America as the right wing, fear mongering propaganda machine has convinced everyone there is a looming terrorist attack in Clodville, Kansas.

    I suggest if you see right wing in there, you may be the one to have a bias.

    Obama could save a great portion of his Presidency tomorrow night when addressing the nation with 3 little words. "I was wrong". Those 3 little words followed by a game changing plan on our FP, one where there is a collaboration with the GOP, with the War Machine, the MIC, one where a clear and bold, decisive plan toward achieving our objectives is presented and then followed through.

    "I was wrong" he just has to say. "I was wrong but we tried." That's it. "I was wrong. We tried the carrot, now it's time for the stick."

    He says that and he shoots 30 points up in the polls overnight.
