    your understanding of cause and effect is rather suspect. The economy was great when Bush came into office? LOL

    why do the welfare socialists always want someone else to have to sacrifice for what you all call the greater good?

    But I guess that's just a technical - a minute detail - when it comes to the world of political partisan hackery. Truly, I'm tired of people trying to drag me into the Democrat party with this kind of bull****.
    libs gain power and feel good about raising taxes. They feel good and gain power by redistributing income. Cutting government spending cuts the source of power for rich liberals.

    Hm..
    Given the out-of-control nature of The Obama's debt machine, how would you characterize His 'and spend' ways?

    Didn't you get the memo?

    The reason poor people are poor is because rich people are rich and they use tax shelters.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Got to love that liberal humor especially when that liberal tries to re-write history. Bush took over in a recession and then had that "little" national disaster called 9/11. Now of course that was left out of the discussion. Then Bush had a Democrat controlled Congress from 2007-2008. I find it quite interesting that the Democrat controlled Congress "let" Bush lead us into a recession unless...................hmmmm, I just wonder? Wasn't there an election in 2008 and couldn't Democrats get their cult followers to blame that recession on Bush? Just saying!
