    Why are some of the reports stating 52% and others 37%?

    Figures don't lie but liars figure. Its a method to show how evil we are not anything practical. It puts forth a leftist viewpoint.

    And here's a perfect example of RWNJ economics. The oil wars are fought by National Guard units and don't show up on Federal budgets. And where are the Blackwater and Halliburton and direct aid/bribes to the Iraq and Afghanistan budget show up on this ridiculous estimate.

    ???? I was agreeing with you. Obama uses fuzzy math.

    It is not a case of agreeing or not, all politicians use fuzzy math. I will not direct this problem at just one administration. Congress are the keepers of the books and spend the money not the White House. The budget or lack of one, and all the spending done over the last three years had to have Congressional approval. To many members on here act as if Barack Obama has Imperial powers. He doesn't and we should hold Congress responsible just as much for the state of the nation. This is not a one man show.

    Democrats controlled the House and Senate from 2007 to 2011, if fact they had a super majority. After they took control of the Executive Branch they have failed to pass a budget. Obama produced a budget but was rejected overwhelmingly. The 2011 and 2012 House has passed budgets but the senate refuses to vote on them.

    And the Bush administration did more slight of hand movments then a carney on the midway at a state fair. If all that is to be discussed is the current administraion without the preceeding history then all it is a partisan politics. While this administration has allot to answer for the mess that started under the last has allot to answer for as well.

    The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007... the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

    The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

    For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:

    The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

    George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH Remember the day...

    January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

    The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

    Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

    Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

    Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

    And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress So when someone tries to blame Bush.. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

    Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

    For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

    And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

    If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

    If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."

    Frankly if Mitt Romney does mange to get elected even his own Congress will not work with him.

    Where are the Congressional Impeachment hearings?
    Where is there any "Legitimate" legal action to remove the Imperial usurper?
    The link provided is by an anti-Obama Hack. No more legitimate then those that whined about George Bush's illegal invasion of Iraq.

    ".....Brock as paranoid and out of control, but still supremely effective at getting his message out through the mainstream media..."

    You see this is where the nutty right fails. While the conspiritorial right exhibits the same dellusional paranioia, they fail at getting thier message out. Why is that? Not even through the mega phone for right wing conservatism FOX News. They can not expose any of the shananigans that the right wing claim to be going on along with the wild claims of dictatorship of the current resident of the White House. The only places you see these claims is on the web and maybe a back story by a national conservative maganzine. The three links and I am sure you can post many more sighted here carry the same validity as UFO sites. Anyone not believing in this idiocy simply looks upn those that do as nuts.

    You've never watched Fox. If you did you'd know there are just as many democrats on Fox as there are Republicans. This ain't about democrat or Republican. It's about fundamentally changing our country from a nation of growth and prosperity or a welfare state. Which do want? Do want to emulate Greece or Spain? http://dailycaller.com/2010/0...

    Boortz isn't on Fox. You seem like a Rachel Maddow fan.
  • DoxieDad Kane Fe... 2012/05/14 04:07:21
    DoxieDad
    Well Madcow may be a lefty but she is a hell of allot more balanced mentally then her right wing counter part on FOX.
    Boortz, Hannity and The Fat Man are all on the radio. As for Democrats on FOX if you consider the two tokens of Alan Colmes and whats his keester from NPR I would not consider that "just as many democrats on Fox as there are Republicans". So give me a break. And by the way I watch both the Communist channel and the Authoritarian channels equally. for about two and a half hours. Maybe three if Madcow has something interesting to say.
