Clinton Tells Obama He Should Accept ‘Mini Deal’, Lower Corporate Tax Rate

July 8, 2011 by  

Bill Clinton recently commented on the debt ceiling debate.President Barack Obama has been criticized by many people for his handling of the debt-ceiling debate, but now he is being tweaked by a fellow Democrat: former President Bill Clinton.

While Clinton told Obama to hold firm during the talks, he also told him that he should accept a “mini deal” to avoid a financial catastrophe, reports Fox News.

In addition, the former President told Obama that the corporate rate was too high and that it should be lowered, reports POLITICO.

“When I was president, we raised the corporate income-tax rates on corporations that made over $10 million (a year),” Clinton said at the Aspen Ideas Festival, reports the news source. “It made sense when I did it. It doesn’t make sense anymore — we’ve got an uncompetitive rate. We tax at 35 percent of income, although we only take about 23 percent. So we should cut the rate to 25 percent, or whatever’s competitive, and eliminate a lot of the deductions so that we still get a fair amount, and there’s not so much variance in what the corporations pay.”

    What to do. Decisions, decisions. When an Arkansas Bubba speaks, is it time to listen, or is it time to make yourself scarce? Clinton owed it to Bubba Obummer to define what a ‘financial catastrophe’ really is.
    The first Bubba was in the W H for 8 years. The current bubba is working on a third year, and divides his time between acting like a Caesar and someone who won an election but can’t believe it.
    I suspect Bubba Clinton may have a problem getting the current Bubba to understand, as Bubba Obummer hates competition and sees job creation as an easy way to ‘create’ more government jobs (real jobs don’t matter to The Anointed One).
    At some point, the current Bubba will be forced to see that poor people and W H incompetents never create real jobs. It’s smoke-and-mirrors for them – and financial disaster for America. What to do, what to do. What would JFK do? What would FDR do? What would a REAL president do?

      hey s c
      I just read your comment and I have to say “Go my friend”!
      I am also doing as you are doing. I know very few will ever read our tyrants, but at least we are man enough to step up to the plate and say “YEAH, I am mad, and I am going to do something”! All you “milking cows”, ( I like the words, Milking cows”). Wake your asses up! Stop letting this corruption “milk” your life away!.
      If you ever see a comment by “Donald”, thats me…many do not like me…they think I am crazy, drunk, whatever.
      My friend, God speed….Keep up the good work!

      Neither FDR nor JFK were torn between three or more bed partners for direction, and certainly would never have allowed American prestige to degenerate this far. Barrak’s reign will soon be concluded – OUSTED – AND SO WILL HIS RUNAWAY POLICIES (bridges that lead to nowhere, not even to Dreamland) – see this: http://presscore.ca/2011/? p=2929
      Jerome Corsi had it right, this isn’t a real President and that fact is about to become very evident as the word spreads and people read hard cold evidence from Barry’s college, Occidental College’s student record of the foreign student admission application for student financial assistance, a student from Indonesia. Once the smoke clears and the minds of all those strategically placed lefty judges, law makers, and yes, the man himself find the jig is up (no racial slur intended) we will begin to witness a mass exiting of the rats deserting that sinking ship called a free ride on the taxpayer dollar. With the removal of Obama we find his yes man Joe Biden at the helm and I seriously doubt he has the metal to continue in the ill-advised venue his Muslim, gay, and most liberal boss practiced. This may also herald in a new Democrat Party – one which will effectually begin the practice of partisanship that meets the needs of their constituency and not themselves only. Perhaps the big scare will even convince some of their erring ways enough to promote an honest reading of the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights with an eye to promulgating legal legislation within the bounds given them. I feel wonderful today just knowing that at long last the rule of law might be restored in our government.

        Dreams, dreams… Oh sweetness…

    • bestsub1

      That is the question, Do we have a real President that is for the working Americans not the government because they seem to work for themselves and I guarntee they do not have to worry about where they will get the money to pay their electric bills, mortgage or how they will pay for food. The government is selfish and they think of themselves after all the working Americans are the ones who keep this country going while our government cannot make their minds up what they want.

      • TexasPatriot

        Make no mistake. The government knows exactly what it wants. It wants the fruit of your honest labor – and complete control of every aspect of your miserable life.

        • Nora Smith

          Slowly, Mr. Obama is advancing his socialist agenda in America. What he think this nation is? Venezuela, Libya, Ecuador, Bolivia, …?
          Liberty is a gift from God, first, then from our Founder Fathers and no one, not even Obama can change its real meaning!
          He’s trying to make “feel happy” the wrong crowd to get their vote, thinking he is going to consume America with another term. Will American be that naive?

          • Vic

            What he thinks? He doesn’t care. For him a model of Soviet Union or China of 60s would be ideal.

          • Eda

            You think he’s doing it slowly? It seeme to me that he, Soros, the Democrats and the Communistic czars have been doing it at breakneck speed, and most brazenly. And getting away with it!

          • Wayne937

            Nora, let’t fire that Muslim Communist in 2012.

      • meteorlady

        We have a president in name only. We have George Soros back there telling him what to do and what to say. That’s about it. This man was never meant to be a President – he was meant to be a puppet and that he is.

    • Dan az

      sc
      What better way to get help with out showing the puppeteers faces than to get an impeached puppet to tell you what the bosses want.Was he not the one that signed into law NAFTA?I’m sure the list is long,or maybe he just needed some more cigars that he had stashed in the white house hidden from view of billary and needed and excuse to retrieve them.Either way what the hell is he doing in the white house and not in jail?What a joke these two are,between them they couldn’t tie each others shoes.

      • meteorlady

        He signed for the repeal of Glass-Steagall which let Wall Street and the bankers run wild with glee. He signed Fair Housing and aggressively pushed for Fannie to take on the loans it did. He signed allowing drug companies to advertise – adding BILLIONS to the price of prescription drugs. The various trade agreements were around and touted as early as Bush, Sr., but they couldn’t get them passed. Clinton did….and he signed them so that makes them his babies because he could have vetoed.

        Now we have various agreements in the mill for South Korea and various South American countries. These will not benefit us at all because those people can’t afford our products over there.

    • CJM

      You can castigate Clinton all you want, but he was the ONLY modern President who balanced the budget and left a tidy sum in the government coffers when he left office after his second term. It took bubba bush only 3 months to spend the 3 trillion dollars from Clinton’s legacy. Yes, I know moralistic folks dislike Bill Clinton for his dilly-dallying affair; but at least he knew how to govern and the current holder of the Oval Office position is below the level of a dunce with moronic tendencies.

      • meteorlady

        Hate to burst your bubble, but….

        Clinton claims he left a surplus but in fact when he left office the deficit was about $17.9 BILLION. Bush’s first full year in office was under a Clinton signed budget and that left the deficit of $133 BILLION. Clinton used smoke and mirrors by counting the income from the Social Security Trust Fund.

        Even with both wars, Bush had the deficit coming down until his last two years when the Democrats took control.

        Verify all this on the US Treasury website or read Chuckb – he has it right.

  • tim

    When bill clinton gets involved you know there is a crime about to be committed. That SOB needs to stay in arkansas and leave the federal gov’t alone. He did nothing good for this country when he was president and now he’s tryhing to get the new world order going because he knows theres money in it for him. Him and jimmy carter need to stay at home. At least bush stays the hell away from washington. You clowns already had your’e chance, now leave us to hell alone!!!!!!!!!

    • Christin

      tim,

      I think Billy’s just angry that his wife, Hilly, got bumped for, obamy… after all
      * Hill has a real upper education with a law degree that wasn’t taken away (like obam and his wife),
      * was a senator in Congress for several terms before running (not just two years),
      * is a true Bilderberg hobknobber (unlike the Chicago thugs obam hangs out with),
      * is not bisexual (like obam),
      * and is a legal citizen of the United States of America, and really qualifies to be Pres…
      * even though she is an self-avowed “Early 20th century Progressive” not a Radical Marxist (like obam)… however both should run for political office in a Communist country instead of Freedom-loving America.

      • Christin

        In addition:

        * Hill cofounded and organized with g. soros ‘Moveon-org’ AND ‘The Center for American Progress’, while obam is a Community organizer.

      • meteorlady

        Hillary is corrupt. She has been involved in a lot of scandals. Both of them are crooks and should never have reached to placed they did in our society. They should have stayed in Arkansas and kept taking monthly bribes from Tyson Chicken.

        If you read Hillary’s college thesis (if you can still find it) she is very very liberal. She advocates as much government interference in our lives as Obama. She is also hard lined with George Soros who threw her under the bus for Obama because he believed he was more able to win the Presidency.

        You need to read a bit more about whom you write.

        • Christin

          meteorlady,

          Your comprehension is not too good today… two strikes with me alone.

          My post clearly states Hillary is a evil “20th Century Progressive [Communist]” who while being more qualified to taint the DC pond than obam, I add that BOTH should run for office in a Communist country… NOT FREEDOM LOVING AMERICA!

          Perhaps you need to read more carefully before you respond to others’ posts.

          • meteorlady

            Sorry wasn’t attacking you, just commenting along with you. Wording a little off – was typing fast and heading out for town.

    • CJM

      Bull Hockey!! There is no comparison between Bill Clinton and Odummberbummber. Furthermore, Clinton may have had an affair, but so have too many other officials and regular folks who pointed their fingers. No, I am not a democrat, but a very conservative republican; however, I would much rather have Clinton back in office today than have to contend with the likes of obummberbummber and his idiot puppet joeblowbiden. At least Clinton was a President and knew how to lead a country.

  • Warrior

    Progressive student is in trouble again and low and behold the progressive teacher has to step in…….. again.

    Who’s really running this show?

  • Bear

    At the Aspen ideas festival? But of course. Isn’t Aspen where most of the billionaires have their fun? Isn’t Aspen where these former constituents of Clinton live and fhave their get away homes? That’s right and I’d bet good old Clinton and Obama got an ear full from the shakers and makers about the ecomomy and THEIR tax structures. To hell with the middle man and his plight. Anyone able to make a huge contribution will get the ear and the favors.

    What’s with this Bill Clinton anyway? Isn’t he the past president? Why are we still having to put up with him in the news anyway? Shouldn’t he be doing something else? Don’t these Democrats ever go away? He’s worse than Ted Kennedy. You finally get rid of them when a Republican president is elected and then they come back when another Democrat gets elected. Same with Carter. These past problem politicians should be banned from politics once they’re out of office. Do you see Bush getting involved or his father? So you see them trying to influence the president in any way? No! Just Clinton. Are you getting a bit sick and tired of seeing his name and seeing his face in the news as I am?

    • Stan Lee

      Bear:
      Under the present abominable national conditions, wrought by Obama, I’m willing to hear any Democrat attempt giving Obama sounder advice than Obama could ever dream up by himself.

      It would surprise me if Obama accepted Clinton’s advice, because while Clinton can be a pragmatist when required, Obama is a programmed Communist. If it’s not written in Alinsky’s rules for radicals, it doesn’t exist in Obama’s questionable mind.

      Giving the devil his due, and though I never had cast a vote for Clinton, the man is a master politician. As long as there are so many morons in our country who would elect such woefully inept types like Obama, I am at least grateful that there’s a voice in the other Party, like Clinton’s, which knows when to hold and when to fold.

      • TexasPatriot

        . . . and the proper way to use a cigar.

        • Bear

          You beat me to the punch. I see very little difference between a Troll and another Troll………a progressive liberal and another progressive liberal. Clinton’s suggestion to cave in a bit is only for show and for, HOPEFULLY, some redemption for recovering some lost votes for the upcoming election in 2012. Clinton is merely using progressive strategy and even that will have to be hammered into the dumb and numb head of the Kenyan.

    • meteorlady

      Aspen is where all the “rich” folks moved to as second and third homes. It’s where all the locals had to move out because they could no longer afford to live there. Thus, they could find no help so the created a “village” (trailer park) well outside of town for the “workers” to come in and wait on them.

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 24 months — so you’ll have one year and ten months to come up with an answer.

    Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

      You are a man of facts and I really appreciate your post!
      As a admirior of your work, may I say, to the “ones” who may read any of our writings, drop the “facts”…they will bore after 3 paragraph. Yes, you are soooo right, but who will check your stats? No-one
      Can you redefine into 1 or 2 paragraphs? People need the info you have, but their mindspan is very limited.
      What makes Osamabama so brilliant? He has been coached for many years, his first employer was Kissinger, who primed him as a New World Order leader.Osamsbama background is covered up as in his birth record, he IS a “low life Muslim” and admites it on the news channel, he has does EVERYTHING to collaspe the American way and promote Islam as he cuts off Israel. Anyone who cuts off Isreal will face God Almighty’s punishment…check your history, put Isreal down, you also go down. Osamabama is a “Terrorist” , and should be annilated.

      Warrior:

      Great job on your part for compiling the real facts! Thank you!

      You have presented most of the salient facts of Obama’s “transformation of America” in one communication.

      I have yet to see such valuable information coming from “lame-stream media” sources. The fact that you’ve presented the information is further indictment of an American news media that has sold-out America. If we all boycotted this media, it would be left with only
      leftists, most of whom don’t read or think anyway.

      We need to put this media out of business, they are market-driven operations dependent upon readership or viewership.

      • Wayne937

        Stan, I have been boycotting the media for some time now. I do not watch NBC, CBS, ABC or CNN. I just watch Fox News. I hope you all start doing it also.

        • meteorlady

          I find it interesting to listen to or watch various channels because then I can pick out some real facts every once in awhile. FOX is perhaps the most honest of the bunch but sometimes their stories are also slanted to make their point evident. It’s not good to just have one news source so I also fact check a lot of things that I see and hear.

    It just amazes me how the Dumocrats berate the Corporate world for gutting the economy and it’s only the RICH who get and the poor never receives but they ALWAYS fall back on tax cuts for the rich, the Corporate and most importantly THEMSELVES !!

    Are these people looking thru clouded rose colored glasses ???

    I can’t see the rational ! My cousin read me the riot act about this very thing and hasn’t talked to me in over a year. She said I was blinded about the rich but meanwhile… Pelosi, Gore, and all the other crones and cronies are wallowing in their wealth, making excuses and getting more taxes and Here we go AGAIN… Clinton says give a “mini deal” ???? What is THAT???

    Don’t get me wrong… YES the corporate world is the base that gives all others their jobs but don’t you think that MAYBE .. JUST MAYBE… the Corporate world (Dumocrats in particular) aren’t gonna just take the money and RUN and not do one thing for the economy except maybe boost Obummer’s rating by 1% making all the other Dumocrats THINK that he’s doing something ???

    This is ONE HUGE SMOKE SCREEN !!! Come on WAKE UP AMERICA and HOLLER LOUD AND CLEAR !!! IMPEACH OBAMA !

    • wayne937

      I agree, Becca. Let’s impeach this Muslim Communist, or kick his butt out of office next year. Like I have said in my earlier post, people watch the wrong media to get the truth. NBC, ABS, CBS and CNN for some reason will not report the facts if it will hurt Obama even though it is the truth. I just heard that the employment rate is now at 9.2 percent. This is up from 9.1 percent. What Obama is doing is hurting the economy. I just hope it is the Obama followers that is laid off, but we know that this is not the case. Folks being laid off and not working hurts the individual as well as the county as a whole.

      • Stan Lee

        Wayne:

        It’s worse than that, the unemployment rate reported today, July 8th, is 9.2%. This past week has seen the lowest amount of jobs created nationally, 18,000!

        And, the Community Organizer is talking about increasing taxes on private jet aircraft! (in between his golf lessons)

        • Wayne937

          Stan, that is what I thought I had reported, the employment rate is now at 9.2 percent rate, up from 9.1 percent earlier. Maybe I made a mistake, or you could have misread my post. I’ll check it out. Thanks.

            The U-6 unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment.

            This month’s U6 unemployment number? Down from 16.6% in May to 16.5% in June.

            Remember, though, that even the U6 is a government manipulated number, so we need to look a little bit deeper to see what the REAL unemployment rate is in America.

            John Williams of Shadow Stats runs the numbers each month, and according to his most recent report, we’re actually hovering at around 21.5%. According to Williams, this is how the Shadow Stats “SGS Alternative” is calculated:

            The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.

            Williams’ unemployment numbers are more than double what Washington is telling us.
            Take a look at the time line on this site when the obummer took office.
            http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-real-unemployment-rate-215_07022010

      • meteorlady

        See there’s the deal – you “heard” that the employment rate was up. The actual employment rate, when you factor in all the people that are no longer eligible for benefits and have stopped looking or have been unemployed for over two years, the real unemployment rate is more like 14.1% and up to 22% in some cities. Real job creation is failing, but we are getting more and more government workers to pay for. Meanwhile a school district runs an ad for a janitor and 700 people show up to apply…..

        The government is manipulating a lot of statistics to make them look good.

        Cost of Living – has been re-written about 22 times since it started. It now does not include the two highest items which are food and energy. Real inflation is running much higher than the government says as each of us know when we buy gas or groceries.

        The amount of illegals actually in this country – more like 30 million that the current estimate of 12 million.

        The amount of illegals actually crossing our borders each month – the government is not employing a “scare them back across” stance. This cuts the monthly numbers down so they can show a decrease.

      The federal income tax system must be more equitable than it’s become.
      All the Democrats can think of is raising taxes on businesses and high income earners. Consequently,jobs have become scarce or non-existent.

      It is ridiculous that more than 45% of the federal income tax base pays no federal income tax! These people have either no vested interest in taxes or at least half-hearted interests.

      It will take guts for the Congress to design a federal income tax structure whereby everyone pays at least a minimum, but I think it must be done. Why should there be people who pay no federal income taxes, yet receive IRS checks for “overpayment?”

      As VP Biden has said in the past, people need “to have skin in the game.” Well, where is it for 45%+ of the earners?

      • TexasPatriot

        The 45% are not ‘earners’. They are parasites whose votes are purchased by ‘progressive’ politicians with the hard-earned taxes on honest earners.

      • meteorlady

        It’s actually 47% and 53% of all people living in this country are on some form of government assistance. We are becoming serfs in our own country.

        Most low income people file their tax returns and actually get more money back than they paid in. What kind of system will let the people that take the most from it, pay nothing?

    The Liberals do not watch Foxnews because they cannot handle, or face the truth. They will run like rats, and coach roaches when tdhe lights are turned on. The UN wants 73,000,000,000,000 for global warming, and for world hunger over the next severa years. Guess who will pay 20 percent of this amount? Yep! your right the United States will. Why is is that a country like the United States has to help support countries that have been around for thousands of years? Is it because we, as a free people, and a Republic free from goivernment control had the initivative and desire to better ourselves had something to do with it? Since this is obviously the case, why do we have to work our butts off and share it with the rest of the world who are either too lazy, or too damn dumb to to support. And to think Obama wants to change this type of government. If this country goes down the tubes who will be the ones they will look forward to necxt to keep them?

    • wayne937

      I meant to say too damn dumb to support themselves.

      Where do you get the ‘free from government control’ part? We are on the verge of complete enslavement to a tyrannical government, due in large measure to Osamabama and his minions!

        TexasPatriot, I was referring about once upon a time way back in history when there was freedom. It may not have came out that way to the reader. We have been losing our freedom for several years now, but I feel it is worse under Obmaa.

    • meteorlady

      Global warming is the biggest scam to hit this world today. Take the US… Al Gore was heavily invested in the Chicago Climate Exchange, which employed exchange trading in the allowances the system generated, known as Carbon Financial Instruments (CFIs), to meet emission reduction commitments. The Clintons were also early investors. Goldman Sachs was running the trading floor and a little known bank was getting the deposits. This was all supposed to give a huge profit to these partners. It stopped trading and in January, 2011

      Meanwhile, CCX’s sister institutions, the European Climate Exchange and the Chicago Climate Futures Exchange, will continue as long as there is corporate and state government interest in fighting climate change, even with the failure of cap and trade in the U.S. Congress, CCX officials insist.

      Since Gore and the “officials” own a big portion these entities you can bet there will be “interest” in government through lobbying.

    Why is the United States always helping other countries while we go down the drain? Would any one of them do that for us? Your damn right they would not….. They are all waiting to see us go down so they can celebrate……… Everything is so out of control……MONEY is the root of all evil…… this is what it all boils down to. What we need is a REAL President but he’s nowhere in sight. We are where we are because of Greed. We spend Billions in Afghanistan and Iraq and keep losing more and more precious lives because we have to baby sit all the Saddam Huesein’s and Al Quida’s of the world who will always be there by the way.

    • wayne937

      Janelle, I really beiieve that Obama is deliberatey destroying our economy to weaken this nation. Do you suppose he is doing this to help the Muslims Nations conquer the United States?? This may sound weid to some people, but this is the true feelings I have. When you think of it, and when you see exactly what Obama has been doing, how else could anyone think any different? Could Obama be a plant in our governemnt for the Muslims? Remember when Obama hired the new space administrator? He told the new administer that he wanted him to work with, and to share information to the Muslim Countries. He wants us to share and give our information to the Muslim Countries after we have spent billions, and billions of dollars to develope this information over the last 50 or 60 years. My answer, WHAT!!!!!!!!! No way Obama. Our money deveopled these high tech itemws and we are not sharing any of our technical knowledge to any country. W,e are not going to give it away. I don’t trust the Muslims anyway as their religion is Islam and look at how many Americans has died frm these religious fanatics and you never hear the Muslims saying anything about this. Now we have this gun thing “{Fast & Furious” thing going on. I have been watching it on, where else, Fox News. So far this is pointing rightto Obama’s right hand man that did this. Yes! It is believed to have ben authorized by Attorney General Eric Holder.

I AM SO AMAZED AT HOW MANY AMERICANS HAVE PULLED THE WOOL OVER THEIR OWN EYES AND HAVE CRAWLED UNDER A RUG HOPING THINGS WILL CHANGE! GET REAL! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT OBAMA WANTS, COMPLACENCY…our parents and grandparents would flip in their graves, the way we have gone soft and have no opinion and scared to be all politically correct…I am correct when I say NO to illegal immigrants that are breaking our health care system and our school systems and our social services =(freebies)
        and who is at the helm of this huge disaster–Oh yeah the skunk himself.Obama–you are kidding yourselves if you think this is going away–we really need to stand up and stand up to snakeville Washington and keep both parties honest—Clean house and get rid of the rats, all the gutter rats…the thug politics has got to go!!! if we are to salvage our country, and it will not be easy, we will have to dig deep and find the strength our parents and grandparents had, and when we do, our country will be once again –America the great!
        get in a tea party —speak up and write–email-call all our representatives and congress and senate–Put the pressure on everyone! once its too late -the devastation we will have, will be irrevocable, and do you all honestly want that for your kids and grandkids —Be somebody and do something today!!!Louise

      Janelle:

      Regarding Afghanistan and Iraq, I want to see all of our troops come home, not a few here and there. We cannot afford to expose our nation’s finest to the perils of indecision and inept leadership of the present regime and its leader(?).

      This guy is playing at being “President,” he has no idea what he’s doing except for the fact that if a military leader says he needs “X” number of troops or resources, Obama undercuts that need, probably thinking the people would believe that he, Obama, thought long and hard about it.

      This is what the nation gets for electing a phony whose only congressional record was voting “Present.” It’s unbelievable! How do we cure national stupidity?

  • Wayne937

    Obama just wants to beat us, his servants, into submission. After he gets us beat down, he then thinks he can easily turn this country over to his people, the Muslims, to rule. Just ask the Liberals, they will say that is ok, or else they will continue to blame it on Bush.

    Where are all the “get back to the constitution” backers? Why are we allowing Congress to undermine the 14th admendment. Next they will start bringing down the other ones. We have to pay our bills and stop giving away our means to do so. We gave lower taxes in order to create jobs but not to Americans. It did not work, started a war of choice we could not afford and now we find they are costing billions.

    Cut and pasted,
    “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
    Where do Americans find these wise words?

    FDR a great president? Was’nt he the guy who started alot of these “entitlement” programs that got us to where we are now?

    • meteorlady

      FDR was in fact the one that started a lot of what we see today. However, once things started to improve, a lot of his programs were scaled back. The worst Presidents for debt creation were probably Carter and LBJ with his Great Society Programs.

      LBJ is the baddest of the bad in my opinion. We are still paying and paying and paying for his useless entitlement programs. He is also the one that first stole money from Social Security in order to make Medicare/Medicaid appear revenue neutral. He is also the one responsible for “No Child Left Behind” only then it was called Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The ESEA, first enacted in 1965, reauthorized in 1994 and 2001, encompasses Title I, the federal government’s flagship aid program for disadvantaged students.

  • http://deaf-v-news.com Gary

    It’s this simple: Obama reminds me of the character Barney Fife, in the old Andy Griffeth programs.
    Everytime he tries to do something right, he bungles and, with this, he’s shot himself in the foot!!

    The problem is, he won’t allow anyone to tell him what he’s doing wrong, the way Barney listened to Andy, so the nation gets worse and worse.

    About the only thing, we can hope for, is another president, like Ronald Reagan, who cleaned up after Carter had bungled the job for four years, to come in and straighten out the mess, left by hizonor Obama.

    Whether Obma, who has recently admitted to being Muslim (after lying about it for more than 2 1/2 years) will find enough idiots to reelect him or not is immaterial. WE NEED A PRESIDENT, WHO HONORS GOD AND COUNTRY AND ALSO IS PRO-ISRAEL….some things Obama hasn’t found out how to be or do!

    • CJM

      Ronald Raegan was no saint, believe it. His bungling was simply not reported; perhaps because they weren’t considered newsworthy or as obvious as Gerald Ford’s. He was especially licensious as the Governor of CA–I know because I lived there at the time. Reagan nearly destroyed the social services and angered many. Nixon was a total disgrace, but even he was so much better than odummberbummber, because Nixon at least knew when to exit rather than to further disgrace America and for what America stands for. What we now have in office is a NON-CITIZEN, a pathological liar, a communist/socialist, and wanna-be dictator of the USA. Yes, odummberbummber should hear what Bill Clinton is telling him; but the self-serving rat in the Oval Office hears only what he desires and to hexx with everyone else. Grade this imposter for his own acts and quit trying to compare him to his predecessors–

  • meteorlady

    This from the idiot that gave us repeal of Glass-Steagall and Fair Housing? Allowed Drug companies to advertise? An badgered Fannie into all the bad loans they guaranteed and bought?

    WOW – what a genius this guy is. I would NEVER have made sense to raise the corporate tax rate. There are countries that actually charge NO TAX to corporations that come in and provide jobs. We are the highest in the world today (Japan was but they are lowering their by 5% to get business back).

      Don’t forget how he tells Congress they must remain in Washington “to finish the job” rather than go home for the holiday (or weekend, or other permissible break) while he takes off to party in NYC, Paris Fr, or some other destination. Of course, he likes to remind us peons that “he” stayed home to get the job done…….!!!!!!!!

  • CJM

    The arse who calls himself our president needs to listen to Bill Clinton in terms of the budget. Clinton left a balanced budget (which really angered a lot of republicans) and when he left office, there was 3 trillon dollars in the government coffers. It took Bush a mere 3 months to squander it all and the US was broke. As a republican, it seems some need to be reminded that we have had good Presidents under both party flags just as there have been a few rotton apples. Currently, the thoroughly decomposed incumbent happens to call himself a democrat===Reality check: He is a communist without a soul.

  • chuckb

    cjm, bush did not squander the treasury. please note:

    While not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, it’s curious to see Clinton’s record promoted as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the facts support that position. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billio

    It is very hard to feel sorry for the corporate execs when they keep giving them selves very large bonuses and keep cutting the hourly employee’s benefits. Flat tax for everyone 10 to 15% ought to do it.

    Clinton Tells Obama He Should Accept ‘Mini Deal’, Lower Corporate Tax Rate

    I have a better suggestion. Lower the size of our Government down to, oh lets say, 1/3 of present size? As well, implement term-limits, do away with political immunity, here and abroad, hold politicians accountable to the law and prosecute them like you would any other citizen when they break the law!

    • Christin

      Jay,
      A good suggestion, indeed!

      NO one above the law… especially those who make them!

      …and I might add, we should do away with Liberty killing unConstitutional laws, too… there are way too many and I don’t think anyone knows what they all are including lawyers… let the public know what the fewer laws of the land are (like the ones in the founding papers) and most will respect and follow them.

    My letter to my Senators. Please write yours to express them how you feel.

    Honorable Toomey, I am writing you because I have respect for you. I know that you read you constituents e-mail personally from the messages I have received back from you. I am writing today about what I think is a detriment to out country. I am an avid follower of Fox News. I have been hearing more and more on “Fast & Furious” which allowed the ATF to sell firearms to the Mexican Drug Lords. I am very concerned over this and other things that Attorney General, Eric Holder, has done to lower the image of our great nation. Mr. Holder had dropped charges on several members of the Black Panthers for intimidating voters in Philadelphia in 2008. He has brought terrorist to this country to be be tried in civilian courts. This will cost the taxpayers millions, and millions of dollars to try these cases. We know foreign terrorists should be tried at Gitmo. It also allows the attorneys for these terrorist to see sensitive information which should never be allowed. Congress has allowed Mr. Holder to get away with all the criminal things he has done without much criticism. There has been two Americans killed with the guns the Mexicans Drug Lords has purchased through the ATF. Why doesn’t Congress hire a special prosecutor to look into all these allegations that I have described above. Since Mr. Holder is directly responsible for the ATF, you know as well as I know, that he knows, or should have known this was happening. They always says the buck stops at the top. My guess he gave the permission to do this. To my knowledge there has not been much action taken to get to the bottom to see what actually happened. I don’t believe Eric Holder is a man who loves this country. In my opinion, Honorable Toomey, I am 100 percent certain that President Obama is a Muslim, and this really concerns me also. I would like to see Congress clean out this rat’s nest in this administration before this country is completely a Communist Country. It appears to me that Obama is already a dictator who is controlling Congress. It seems we are heading in a Communist direction with this current administration. Another thing that bothers me is that this President hire Czars without even having them vetted by Congress. This should also stop. A good example of this would be Communist Van Jones that Obama hired. Thanks to the pressure of Glenn Beck, Van Jones is not any longer employed in that position anymore. I feel our Leader ship in Congress is failing the American People and this is sad. I don’t have any respect for Harry Reid. I am hoping for a better leadership from John Boehner. Congressman Boehner is going to have to get tough with this administration if he is going to stay in good graces with his constituents. I hope Congress gets enough courage to put this administration in its place. Thank you for your time.

  • Alex

    Yes, Clinton was President at one time, but will Obama listen to someone who never dealt with such a crisis? Take our polls later this week and tell us what you would do about the deficit. http://bit.ly/Votocracy
