    PLUS - he promised to half the budget deficit during his first term. So he is either a liar or totally untrustworthy on carrying through his promises



    And, you FINALLY admit that Obama HAS increased the debt.

    So that is yet another thing that has gotten worse under Obama...PLUS unemployment, worker participation rate, housing value and food stamps....oh, and the trade deficit as well (I forgot that before).

Obama and the demorats had COMPLETE control of congress yet did not "reverse" any of these "Bush" policies.

    Governing is not simply allowing things to remain "as is" and complaining about them, it is making those HOPE AND CHANGE things come to pass by LEADING. Name ONE "Obama" policy that was not able to EASILY pass congress in 2009 or 2010? Simply because Obama did not lead does not mean that congress would not have gone along. Obama let Pelosi and Reid run the show, then complains about "Bush" policies, while he offered NONE of his own.

    Obama NOW wants to tax "the rich" to add $85 billion to the federal revenue, enough to pay for 8.5 days of his spending, yet NEVER explains how that will create (or save) even ONE job. Remember that the "bipartisan" deal to subsidize student loan interest for ONE YEAR cost that much. Get real!

    Let's see your tally of the Presidents new spending programs and how much they add up to?

    I refuse to regard anyone with a computer, smart phone, ipod, or car as impoverished. Did you just buy your son $160 Michael Jordans? Then I don't care about you.
    So ... a person works hard and gets a great job and earns some of these things. Then a super rich guy at Bain outsources his job overseas, and he's forced to take a crappy job below the poverty line, but still owns the car and the computer that he earned, and uses them to try to find a better job, but is unable to.

    Yet he doesn't deserve your compassion. Got it.

    Not enough, I'm afraid, you must also support additional tax cuts for people like the 6 Walton heirs that own as much wealth as 30% of the population.

    Oh, yeah, forgot about that ... and that a poor person doesn't deserve compassion unless he's starving.

    EVERY SINGLE PROGRAM that G.W. Bush added during his term is Obama's responsibility during every fiscal year that he does not cut it from the budget.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    They add up to 2x the Bush deficit, the national debt increased by over $5T in ONE TERM, this from the man that was going to cut the deficit in HALF. Doing nothing to cut ANY existing spending, adding "stimulus" and cutting taxes does not "cut the deficit in half", it doubles it. Yes he did!
