    Dude, you asked the question and I answered. I did read the article. You're the one who refuses to make a point here by not telling me what part of the article you think is relevant. Why don't you stop being so hostile and actually inject something yourself.

To both questions: Is Obama responsible for American decline? and Is Politico a now hack site for using "birther" nonsense to make its point?

    Politico isn't liberal. A significant portion of conservatives/republicans don't think he's american. To fault them just for reporting that in an article that otherwise isn't critical of Republicans in general is silly. Simply looking for reasons to get butt-hurt.

    Why do you ask? I was responding to your question and I'm not sure what part of the article you think is relevant to... uh... whatever point you're trying to make to me.
    That is not answering, now I'll ask again.

    did you or did you not read the darned article?

    Whoa! stop right there.....Politico is most definately a liberal leaning publication.

    Now.

    A significant portion of conservatives/republicans don't think he's american.
    Such as?

    To fault them just for reporting that in an article that otherwise isn't critical of Republicans in general is silly.
    No, it is a tactic used to silence any dissent from the articles premise. they don't have to be any more critical after they generalize the entire group as crazy do they?

    Simply looking for reasons to get butt-hurt.
    "get butt-hurt"??? What the hell does that mean?

    Reread your OP. There's a question in it.
    I answered that question.
    Then you asked me if I read the article but STILL have not explained why you asked that. I read the article.

    Yep, he did. Even the CBO said so.

    This is operating on the assumption that every penny of that deficit is directly his doing. That is not the case. Obama is not responsible for the loss of tax revenue that contributed to the deficit.

    Not true. Stop listening to Beck.

    The debt was 10.6 trillion when Obama took over in 2009, and is now 14.1 trillion.. that is in NO WAY a tripling.

    And if we go by budget years, then the debt under Obama budgets is gone from 11.8 trillion to 14.1 trillion.

    Now if you are looking for a tripling.. look at Reagan

    Bush took it for 5 trillion to almost 11 trillion.. that is a doubling.

    Like it or not, your comment is utterly false.
