    Why? because he represents liberalism and was a leader in the Obama Administration. Where do you think he got the thought from? Why are you so obsessed with distorting the Bush record and believing 2008 was its entirety? Why are you ignoring the Obama results and still blaming Bush for the yearly deficits and massive unemployment/under employment?

    Gruber doesn't "represent liberalism" any more than one person represents any idealogy. As far as the "Bush Record"....I distort nothing. I have always believed that the dismal results speak for themself. As does Obama's record. Bush will be judged by his record and Obama by his when he leaves office. The results speak for themselves. You are the one who constantly attempts to engage in calesthentics to twist and spin the facts. Let the facts speak for themselves....but I'm afraid you can't do that.

    You realize he helped Mitt Romney with Romneycare in Massachusetts, right? Mitt Romney was your guy. Are you hoping he gets nominated again?

    No, absolutely not....We don't need any more progressives, right or left....

    LOL, Mitt Romney is not a progressive, and neither is President Obama for that matter. Mitt Romney is a chameleon that changes color to blend in to his surroundings.

    Let's compare the Bush Record with Obama's

    Bush took office with a 10.3 trillion dollar GDP that in December 2008 it was 14.7 trillion or an increase of 4.4 trillion or 550 billion per year
    Obama took office with a 14.4 trillion, pumped a trillion dollars into the economy and today it is 17.3 trillion or 500 billion per year with the stimulus

    Bush took the debt from 5.7 trillion to 10.6 trillion or a 4.9 trillion dollars for 8 years or 600 billion per year and 1 trillion of that is 9/11
    Obama took office with that 10.6 trillion and it is now 18.2 trillion or 7.6 trillion or 1.2 trillion per year

    Bush had an average discouraged workers of 450 thousand per month, Obama's is 950,000 per month

    Bush generated 9 million jobs from January, 2001 to December 2007 and ended up with 5 million thanks to the recession of 2008 with a Democrat Congress
    Obama took office with an employment of 142 million and that is now 147 million up 5 million from taking office but 1 million from the recession's beginning.

    I could go on with u-6 rates but it is a waste of time with you

    I could talk about winning the war in Iraq and Obama losing the peace but it is a waste of time. Why don't you tell me what the Bush record is that didn't have Democrat foot prints on it??

    Yeah, I do but you don't seem to understand the difference between a state program and a Federal Program. Please figure it out and get back to me

    Don't understand leadership do you? Romney worked with a Democrat Legislature in one of the most liberal states in the Country and generated incredible jobs growth and a budget surplus. His management and leadership experience is something Obama still doesn't have after 6 years in office and apparently something you don't understand

    No business executive or anyone with any business, management, or leadership skills would ever be called a progressive. Being Progressive is being inflicted with a mediocre disease, seek help.

    Yep....just as I suspected. You live in a world where 911 occurred on Clinton's watch, Clinton and the Democrats are responsible for the financial mess that occurred while GWB was in office and despite that, Bush overcame it all and led the country to economic Utopia, captured and killed Bin Laden and won the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Life must be nice living in such a constant state of denial. Keep spinning any more and your liable to explode. It is entertaining to watch though....
