    Where are the cites for this ridiculous statement from your link?
    Since when is 2% GDP growth called "accelerated growth"? And as far as employment, Bush had the worst record of any modern President in growing private sector jobs.

    I love it too.

    While the Obama administration goes into debt faster than the Starship Enterprise can find disaster, this thread about Scott Walker has become a debate of the minutea of the Bush administration and its activities eleven years ago.

    Nothing happens in Obamaland that does not include a few hundred posts about the Bush administration even down to whether figures are adjusted for inflation.

    How come no one ever asks such detailed questions of the guy spending the money now?

    Gotta love elections.
    The stories coming out of the Washington Post will be one hit piece after another on Republican candidates, during the primary season. And don't be surprised if there is an absent of hit pieces on Jeb Bush because that is the candidate the left wants to see on the right still standing.
    Walker wasn't the only hit piece this week that came out of the Washington Post, Christie got his own also. But when you think about it, Christie is the closest one to Jeb's ideology which drains support from Jeb. And Walker for the past two weeks has been polling very well often ahead of Bush, so he too gets a hit piece. If anyone starts to outshine Jeb, the Post will do their part to tarnish them. So what does that tell ya when the left is rooting for Jeb?

    It's not that we are rooting for Jeb as much as we can see that he is the "anointed one". Why do you think Romney dropped out so quick? He got he word from the ones that matter. It is going to be Jeb this time no matter how much you guys kick and scream and no matter who gets votes in the primaries. We will save our ammo for the campaign. Believe me there is plenty on Jeb as if his last name is not enough. A 3rd Bush in a row for the GOP? LOL

    Republicans pay down debits.

    Bush: Surplus Justifies Tax Cut

    President Bush said Saturday that the most important number in the budget he sends to Congress next week is the $5.6 trillion surplus it projects over the next 10 years.

    That huge projected surplus provides the underpinning of all the administration's tax-cut and spending plans, Mr. Bush said in his recorded weekly radio address.

    "A surplus in tax revenue, after all, means that taxpayers have been overcharged," the president said. "And usually when you've been overcharged, you expect to get something back." The surplus figure "counts more than any other" in the budget, he said.....

    Republicans see surpluses as overcharges, that is their SOP.

    Unfortunately politics only works that way in movies......

    It's all about the money...who has it and who can get it. No body is sitting in a back room somewhere saying this guy or that guy in the Republican party...the party famous for shooting inward. Should anyone ever have any proof that such deals are made they are free to write an expose'.....and there are so many out there....

    Romney backed out, it is said, that he couldn't find the $ to do the preliminary ground work, building the team who will find out if enough money and support are there. He's had two runs at it and blew it, and blew it bigger than Dewey last time, no one wants to touch him.

    Not only has the thread devolved, as usual, but the OP is a flat out lie, one of two the author of the OP has posted on DP. In one it was Walker Defaults, this one is about missing a payment. Neither took place, but that doesn't stop them from posting. At no place is the fact this practice of deferring is within the governors authority, has been going on in Wisconsin since 2001, and was done by the previous Democrat Governor despite the high taxes that were in place.

    What we seen here is nothing but the Progressive Machine media blitz to attack every potential non-Liberal/Progressive candidate they can dream of. The grubbers are just the lap dogs that gladly spread the lies because I guess they think it makes them look important and informed.

    In fact, we currently have nearly 120-thousand employees — 21 percent of our workforce — who have worn their military and postal uniforms with pride. Last year, we were proud to have more than 530 of our employees on military leave, actively serving our nation. That commitment continues right into 2012

    Tell us more about your hatred for the postal service.
