Except you left out a really important part where some of that was borrowed against future taxes, so tis time to cough it up.
There are people out there who are hurting NOT because of policies the President signed into law, but because of policies that were in effect BEFORE he took office. Yet, you completely ignore that reality and instead inject your own.
Instead of acknowledging that our deficit has been increasing with each succeeding President/Congress, you lay blame squarely at the feet of this President (re: "6 trillion in just 4 yrs").
Instead of acknowledging that Congress has either been printing money or borrowing money for years, you would rather have everyone believe that this President (and a Democrat majority in Congress from the recent past) did it all by himself (themselves).
You point the finger at the EPA without acknowledging how the very "marketplace" you coveat has impacted the coal industry (i.e., natural gas and other low-cost alternatives energy sources slowly supplanting coal much as petrolium oil at one point supplanted whale oil).
Look, I get that many Americans are worried about the so-called "fiscal cliff". You're worried about America's place in the world today. You're worried that we've lost our edge, that the country has gone soft in the eyes of the world particular with our "enemies". You worry that America's properity is in jeopardy, that our ability to project power has been dinimished. I get it!
America is not weak.
America will not go broke (not for real). We may be in debt up to our eyeballs, but we'll never go broke not as long as the world sees America as a commodity whether we perform as the world's top exporter as we once were post-WWII or as a leading importer. (Although you certainly want to be more of an exporter than an importer).
The only way our enemies get to us is if we pull another Pearl Harbor or 9/11 and get complacent.
And as far as our ability to project power, you're still thinking w/a Cold-War mentality. While we do need to be careful not to put too much stock in "digital/electronic" warfare, I think our military will continue to reassess its war-fighting capabilities and will always remain strong and fully capable of defending the homeland.
(BTW, I'll ignore the "bastard" comment. Freedom of speech gives you that right to speak your mind, but maybe it's time to seak anger management courses to help you deal with losing the election. You really do need to get a grip and accept reality. Your side loss; get over it.)
When a Republican says something stupid, it's headline news and you will definitely hear about it. When a Democrat says something stupid, it's only repeated on Fox, and then labeled "partisan" and worthy of dismissal, if not instantly branded a lie.
Everybody remember when Joe Biden said you can't go to a 7/11 or a Duncan Donuts without an Indian accent? "But, that's like, just off the cuff. He doesn't really mean it. It's not important. The REAL racists are all in the Republican party."
Democrats are going to keep believing that the Republicans are the party of the stupid and intolerant, while Republicans will continue to believe that the Democrats are the party of of the lazy welfare queens. It's nice Jinadal is being proactive, but honestly, everyone seems to be a dumbass lately. They aren't confined to just one party.
"Political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. . . . Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

I am looking forward for Jindal to be a candidate in 2016..hopefully the stupid republican establishment doesn't block him off and try to get a "moderate" guy to come in and continue the crazy progressive side of the GOP. We must work for liberty, not political gain, and pandering.
