    I mean, when the CBO numbers match the propaganda you want to believe, they're not political, right?
    Hey you two McGeniuses with the reading comprehension disabilities... I was saying that the CBO numbers are only usable by people like you when they agree with your argument. I used sarcasm to get the point across but apparently only USA-1 got it.

    By cutting taxes, spending and wars. All unpaid for, ergo, deficit. Are you seriously unaware of what your party did during those 8 years?

    Oh yeah, and Bush allowed 9/11 to happen and then increased the size of government by creating a bunch of government bureaucracies to sink money into then he went on to ignore Katrina for a few days before promising money that he failed to get appropriated.

    Could you make your sig bigger, my granny still can't read it. Oh, hot pink text works better too.

    Outside of the fact that cutting taxes increased revenues, your argument that cutting taxes caused the deficit was wonderful. How's about you fix that mistake of yours?

    "Five days before Sept. 11, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice was warned that a terrorist attack inside the United States was imminent, a former U.S. senator who headed up a blue-ribbon commission on terrorism revealed late Tuesday."

    Simple. He could have tightened airport security before 9/11 just like he did after 9/11. They were warned.
