    Whihc put people to work, but I know that's irrelevant.

    let New Orleans float down the Mississippi.
    That would be the Democrat governer of Louisiana and the Democrat mayor of New Orleans that cocked that up.

    If your party was the solution for america, they'd be in office still. Take ownership for the crap they pulled.

    What, besdies pushing everyone onto welfare, have the Dems done to make things better? Please, be specific.

    Liblady, your party has been in charge since January 2007 and what do we have to show for it? "Your" President took over in January 2009 and today, 2010, we have 4 million more unemployed than we had when he took office, 3 trillion added to the debt, and 1.6% economic growth. Unemployment this year by month is higher than it was by month in 2009 so he has made things worse. Is that the record you are proud of? Obviously that is the record you want to ignore so it is attack everyone else.

    Tell me did Clinton sign budgets that he proposed or that were proposed by the Republican controlled Congress? Did Clinton propose more or less spending than the Republican Controlled Congress?

    I keep hearing about that balanced budget but for some reason I cannot find any period when the debt was reduced which is what a balanced budget and surplus would do. It was a projected surplus and just like all other liberal projections were lies fed to the minions that support them.

    Yep, that is probably the most frustrating issue, the Obama supporter doesn't want to see what is happening or willing to admit what the Democrat agenda is doing to this country. It is almost like a cult following. Facts, logic, and common sense as well as basic civics are foreign to most liberals.

    Contract with America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Well since you and Councilman think the GOP a d Bush brought us such prosperity why was the congress majority voted out in 2006 and then the same in 2008 as well as the presidency.

    GOP were failures to America, that is why. Conservatism is the AIDS of the political spectrum, may it die out quickly

    So what you're saying is that the GOP is promising to use Democrat spending and tax practices? I'm sure that will go over well. Would you also agree that 2008 taxes and 2008 spending would not be particularly "fiscally responsible," especially when revenues are down due to the recession?

    Besides, Bush still had the veto pen and the Democrats did not have a filibuster-proof majority. If the GOP had really wanted to take a stand on spending they could have. I don't see why anyone would take this Contract Pledge With To America seriously.
