The Obama Solution: “Blame It On Bush”

September 8, 2010 by  

The Obama Solution: “Blame It On Bush”

I have a sneaking suspicion that President Barack Obama has a sign on his Oval Office desk that reads, “The buck stops with Dubya.”

According to the Boston Herald, “Our President cannot resist a good opportunity to blame Bush.” The President has blamed Bush on everything from the credit crisis to Hurricane Katrina.

It was on the five-year anniversary of Katrina late last month that Obama showed courage in the face of criticism and calmly reiterated the message from that chart topping song a decade past, “It Wasn’t Me.”

Last month the President was campaigning for the upcoming elections in New Orleans, ground zero for Katrina. He told the audience that he would not abandon their cause. Then the President called Katrina and its aftermath not just a natural disaster but “a manmade catastrophe — a shameful breakdown in government that left countless men, women and children abandoned and alone.”

“Implicit in Obama’s remarks,” wrote The Associated Press: “is an indictment of sorts against former President George W. Bush’s administration for its handling of the crisis.”

When it comes to the Gulf Coast the President just can’t resist blaming Bush. During the height of the BP oil spill the President was at it again.

“For too long, for a decade or more, there has been a cozy relationship between the oil companies and the federal agency that permits them to drill,” said Obama from the White House Rose Garden last May. “It seems as if permits were too often issued based on little more than assurances of safety from the oil companies. That cannot and will not happen anymore."

In fact, the Obama administration has a laundry list about the previous President, two wars in the Middle East and an economy that can’t get traction. The way Obama is revving up for the fall elections you would almost think he himself was running against Bush.

While giving a speech last month, Obama said the Republican Party hasn’t differentiated itself from its predecessor.

“They don’t have a single idea that’s different from George Bush’s ideas — not one,” Obama said to applause. It seems that Obama thinks he is taking the high road as to not actually naming Bush but instead saying, “The previous administration.”

Countless times Obama has said that it is Republican policies which caused the recession.

“We got here after 10 years of an economic agenda in Washington that was pretty straight forward,” Obama said in August. “You cut taxes for millionaires, you cut rules for special interests, and you cut working folks loose to fend for themselves. That was the philosophy of the last administration and their friends in Congress.”

And it is not just Obama whose mantra is to fault Bush. Congressional Democrats like to blame the former President for just about everything. Even with the 2010 midterm elections a couple of months away, Democrats think that “blaming Bush” is still a winning strategy, even though they have had a majority for almost four years and Obama has been in control for nearly two.

I am not yet an old timer but I have been around the block. Never before have I seen a sitting President blame his predecessor the way Obama has blamed Bush.

Consider the mess Ronald Reagan inherited from Jimmy Carter.

When Reagan took office on Jan. 20, 1981, inflation was out of control, the economy was in a deep recession, and America was coming off of two oil embargoes which had lead to gasoline lines that stretched for blocks. On that day Iran still held American hostages and the nation’s standing in the world had never been lower.

Yet according to my research Reagan did not blame Carter once. Instead he got on about the business of leading the nation forward. And he did a damn fine job, coaxing legislation to stimulate the economy while curbing inflation and increasing jobs. Reagan also cut taxes, strengthened the nation’s armed forces and created renewed confidence in the United States such that the greenback surged.

The same could be said about President Lyndon B. Johnson, whose downfall was caused by Vietnam. It was President John F. Kennedy who first sent combat advisors to Vietnam and it was Kennedy’s Cabinet that urged Johnson to get tough on North Vietnam. Yet during his Presidency and the years that followed when he was on his ranch near Stonewall, Texas, Johnson did not blame JFK.

And was there ever a leader who could more easily blame his predecessor than Winston Churchill? It was Prime Minster Neville Chamberlain who placated Hitler and neglected Britain’s defense forces. It can be argued that Chamberlain laid the groundwork for World War II. Yet when Chamberlain died it was Churchill that defended him with a eulogy: “Neville Chamberlain acted with perfect sincerity according to his lights and strove to the utmost of his capacity and authority.”

Good leaders don’t make excuses and lament about their circumstances. They move forward. They lead. This is something that a whining and complaining Obama can’t seem to do, and the nation is suffering because of it.

Unemployment remains stunningly high, the housing crisis is unabated and investor confidence is shrinking rapidly. Late last month the Spectrem Millionaire Investor Confidence Index (SMICI) fell to its lowest level in more than a year as wealthy U.S. investors worried about politics and unemployment.

The SMICI fell 11 points in August to minus 18, its lowest level since June 2009, when it fell a record 18 points to minus 20 shortly after the S&P 500 index hit a 12-year low. Gluskin Sheff economist David Rosenberg calls current economic conditions “a depression, and not just some garden-variety recession,” and notes that any good news both during the initial 1929-1933 recession and the one that began in 2008 triggered “euphoric response.”

“Such is human nature and nobody can be blamed for trying to be optimistic; however, in the money management business, we have a fiduciary responsibility to be as realistic as possible about the outlook for the economy and the market at all times,” he said.

Rosenberg points out that encouraging gross domestic product (GDP) news happened in the period 1929-1933 where there were six quarterly bounces in GDP with an average gain of 8 percent.

“False premise,” warns Rosenberg. “We may well be reliving history here. If you’re keeping score, we have recorded four quarterly advances in real GDP, and the average is only 3 percent.”

Rosenberg points out that the “overall economic malaise” has come despite aggressive efforts by the Federal Reserve to stimulate the economy through rate cuts.

Given the growing economic crisis Obama would be smart to listen to political opponent, Senator John McCain, (R-Ariz.).

“George Bush looks like a piker compared to what has taken place since President Obama has come into the presidency,” McCain said. “He can keep ‘B.I.O.B.’ no matter what it is, ‘Blame it on Bush’ — he can keep that up. The American people are going to hold him accountable this November, not an administration that went out of power more than a year ago."

The problem is that the ultimate judgment on Obama won’t take place for another two years and two months. That’s another 26 more months of Obama blaming Bush while doing precious little else to reshape America’s fortunes. We can only hope that in the autumn of 2012 we have a new President; a President who gets on with the business of leading rather than finger pointing.

Yours for real wealth and good health,

    Obama knew the score when he campaigned for the position with promises he never intended to keep. If he can’t stand the heat, he shouldn’t have lied his way into the kitchen.

    • dan az

      come on dave you know its not his fault they made him do it!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        dan az,
        No, Bush made him do it!!!!

        • Bruce D.

          I wonder if Bush has caused Obama and his wife to take so many expensive vacations. How about a date to New York to see a play for $400,000. Many hard working men and their families have to go without so this man can live like a king. How many people does it take to pay their taxes so this man can take just one of his vacations. When he is not on vaction he is playing golf and basketball. I wonder where he finds the time to bash Bush. Certainly someone else is running the country. Anyone knows you can’t take that many vacations with a failing business and expect to turns things around. Obama thinks Americans are stupid. Many are but I hope not enough to get him reelected.

          • Tony

            The only way to STOP THAT PIECE OF PIG CRAP AND HIS WIFES SPENDING is to impeach him NOW not wait till 2012. And the only way to do that is for THOSE BRICKHEADS IN CONGRESS TO WAKE UP NOW,NOW,NOW, GET IT BRICKHEADS?????

          • Harold

            I trust the American people, the Kenyan will not be reelected.

          • Denniso

            Such respect for your president!! And, I also trust the people…they voted out the corrupt/inept Repubs in ’06 and ’08 and aren’t quite stupid to put them back in control so soon after they showed their incompetence and greed.

          • dan az

            Den is so?
            bush again? why not get it straight in 06/08 the dumocrats held majority isnt that the facts?

          • planoguy

            Denniso – the lib plant is back! Huff post must be worried! Are you one of the “paid” plants or are you freelancing?

          • Mike In MI

            deniss, deNIsso, DENNIsso

            Hey, cool it, co-oo-oo-olit. Your god is being defroc’t, froc’t. You libs all realize… you’re froc’t. Yup-p-p!!! You’re in de froc’t position if AG Cucinelli of Virginia wins his case against O’BOMB’R'CARE’s unconstitutional provision that every citizen must have or buy Health Insurance or pay fines.
            See, Constitutionally (“Law-of-the-land”, stuff you libs despise) the government can’t demand citizens to buy anything. Chances for tyrrany were determined by The Founder’s Wisdom to be too great. Wisdom is good,…good. Constant, unchanging, “un-LIBERAL”. NOT FASCINATINGLY STUPID!!!

            If Cucinelli, AG of Virginia, wins the whole O’BOMB’R'CARE dumbass act disappears. If Cucinelli loses, we are assured we under the domination of tyrrants – not any sort of republican or democratic government wherein the people have a say in their form of government.

            It will be decided in the U.S. Courts System. Each of us then must decide: “How much is it worth it to me to live in LIBERTY?”, or, “Do I die fighting for IT?” This case will take Obama’s mask off.

          • Denniso

            Paid plant? Lib Plant? You’ll never know, will you…And, yes, the Dems held the majority in 6/08, so what? The bubble had been building for yrs and the collapse was set in motion by Greenspan the libertarian and Bush’s lax regulation for his whole term.

            I’m am adamently against insurance mandates..the insurance co’s are the major part of the problem w/ our healthcare system and to force purchase of policies from those fat cats is nothing short of disgusting. Obama caved in to the ins lobby hoping to have their cooperation,which didn’t last anyway. At the least there should have been a public option as a choice for us not to have to buy from a private corp w/ million $$ ceo’s.

            You people forget that the Repubs actually suggested insurance mandates for all back when Clinton tried to reform healthcare. It was a stupid idea then by the Repubs and it’s as stupid now coming from the Dems.

          • http://donthaveone Beberoni

            Note to denniso – Respect. It is earned, not given. The man has done NOTHING to earn the respect of the American people. In fact, quite the opposite. He has shamed us, and taken away from us. He has emboldened our enemies. He has given terrorist’s lawyers, while imprisoning our own soldiers for fighting them. He has apologized to the world for us being successful, and slapped us all in the face doing so. He has forced a health care bill down the throat of 68 percent of the people that didnt want it. And he did it in a backroom behind closed doors. Him and his wife have plundered our government on a scale only matched by the Marcos’s of the Phillipines. They continue to plunder and spend in astronomical ways on their own self pleasure and vacation after vacation. And you really expect us all to RESPECT this behavior? Are you frigging nuts? It is truly scary that there are free people walking around that think like you do. Truly scary.

          • Denniso

            I note that you seem to have no memory. Obama didn’t plunder the American people, the financial whiz’s did. They fueled the bubble,w/ the help of the libertarian Greenspan and Bush’s lax regulation. They made millions as the bubble grew,as did some in the upper middle class and the wealthy. Obama listened to economists who know a little more about the system than you and your buddies do,and knew that to stop the freefall the banks and auto sectors had to be rescued. It’s worked, as we are not in a panic or freefall anymore and the market has recovered 65% of the losses in ’08. You also don’t remember that Bush followed the same advice of emminent economists.

            It’s a bit funny and ludicrous that lay people like you,who know next to nothing about economics,actually think you know better than the top economists from around the world.

      • Al Sieber

        The Devil made him do it, he still has over 2 more years to blame Bush, we can’t wait much longer.

        • Denniso

          Cheny/Shrub doubled the national debt in 8yrs from about 51/2 trillion to about 10 trillion dollars. They started 2 wars that they didn’t finish, one w/ the promise that we would be greeted as liberators…remember? Both unfinished wars have added something like a trillion dollars to the debt w/ another trillion coming down the line. The economic collapse came after 8 yrs of lax regulation on the financial industry, and the panic and freefall began during Shrub’s term. Shrub also forced through the trillion dollar,unfunded prescription drug plan for seniors.
          If anyone is to blame,how could it be anyone other than Shrub/Cheny? If the Repubs had been willing to help Obama w/ the rescue of the economy and not start laying blame on Obama as soon as he was elected,
          we could have avoided the ‘blame game’. Instead, they played politics w/ the well being of the entire country at stake,all w/ their greedy little eyes on the Nov elections.

          • Wanda Murline

            Actually, Obama and the Democrats have spent more of our money in the last 18 months that Bush spent on both wars (Afghanistan and Iraq) in EIGHT (8) YEARS. Enough said.

          • Bruce D.

            The truth is both you and Obama have no clue. DaveH is right. Obama new what the problems were long before Bush left office. If he could not do the job he should not have ran for the office. Obama lied about his qualifications and he is trying to cover it up with blame. The truth is he has deserted the private sector in favor of the public sector. He has delivered pork to government and political allies but has done nothing to fix anything. He haasn’t even tried. After almost twop years he is just now talking about giving incentives to business to hire people. Then at the same time promotes job killing regulations.

          • Wayne

            I just finished making another post, Denniso, and said that the fools will forget that the Democrats have been in Control of Congress since 2006. Let’s not put all the blame on Bush because he cannot spend a dime unless Congress approves it. Let’s put he blame on your some of the Democrats favorite Congressmen, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd who refused to change the way Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac was doing business. The Republican tried to get the two organizations reigned in back in early 2000, but these two Democrats blocked it as they were in that committe. I wonder how much they got paid to do that?

          • Lewis Munn

            Wanda, and they are not done. Going to steal my Medicare to give to the illegals! And offer me a cheap suicide…or starving to death!!

          • Lubo

            Denisso,,,,,, The blame game starts or stops at the TOP. It’s called leadership, or in this case, the lack of, which is what this conversation is about.

            I see very few people on this blog or others that are defending Bush’s last decisions in the White House. In fact, I have stated that I hold Bush directly accountable for starting this FOOLISH spending spree in Washington. Foolish being an understatement! IT would be the equilvalence of me or you having a $50,000 credit card debt and then decide to go our and charge $500,000 more to fix the proplem. Or, a better example would be, you have two children, one has studied and worked hard and the other has smoked dope and done nothing. So, as parents, you punish the hard worker and reward the lazy doper and you add that to your $550,000 credit card debt. Ofcourse, with the socialist mentality, the dope smokers problems becomes a “Collective” problem for ALL OF US TO PAY….correct????

            Regardless of who is the blame here, we need leadership, not a whinning little bush blaming boy that is incapable of managing his own affairs much less yours, mine or our GREAT NATION’S.

          • Wayne

            Blame it on Bush, Blame it on Bush, blame it on Bush, blame it on Bush. When in the hell is Obama going to quit blaming Bush and take the responsibility for himself. Maybe he thinks if he keeps blaming Bush it will resinate through the people minds, like subliminal messages. I think Obama is a dud who is willing to accept responsibility for his own short comings. We need a president that will step up to the plate and let us know that we should all should be looking forward, not backwards. Come on Denniso, get in touch with reality. You are completely out numbered here. The majority sees what is happening to this country and they don’t like it. Blaming some one else will never solve our problems.

          • Denniso

            I don’t care in the least that the majority here disagree w/ me,this site is full of partisan rightwing hacks and they are the majority.
            You miss the point…no matter who may be to blame for the mess we’re in, the Repubs following Limbaugh’s lead, started blaming Obama even before he took the oath and continued non stop. He’s not been in charge for even 2 yrs and the rightwing blames him for anything and everything going wrong. If they weren’t blindly partisan and would help instead of hinder, Obama wouldn’t have to lay blame on bush. The
            Repubs took the political route for pure political gain and now you people don’t think Obama should fight back politically?

          • marvin

            Denniso your a true obama liberal why take the blame when bush done it don,t you think after allmost two year of obama in office and his obamacare and give aways to the unions and the soros it time to start putting blame were it is due on your king obama back

          • az wayne

            Your jibberish bucket doesn’t hold water. Until you can quit media quoting idiotic statements and admit facts you’re just wasting space. DEMOCRATS controlled legislation since 2006. Find some math intelligence and look at economy indicators, unemployment rates, stock market, Just because you stuck Bush with idiots Pelosi and Reid, Frank, Dodd, remember they still had to put up with Kennedy and Schumer. Now match facts with crooks and liars, you can’t blame Bush.

          • Lubo

            Denniso…you still don’t get it, do you? IT IS A TOTAL LACK OF LEADERSHIP to blame others…period.

            I remember a song from long ago, Bringing in the Sheep, but it certainly has taken on a new meaning since O’man became the POTUS.

            Song, song of the sheeple
            never will convince the American people
            Obama has studied Alinsky and Ayers

            the words from his mouth ring truth no more
            he’s a Marxist believer deep in his core

            government growth and government control

            ONLY CONGRESS has the authority to spend money. Yes, Bush asked for the money but Congress could have said no. So, they are as much to blame as Bush. But, they wanted to have someone other than themselves to blame for the economy. Bush WAS NOT a conservative. As Charles Krauthammer said in November 2008 he was the most socialist president in the history of this country. However, Obama is going out of his way to break that reacord and to deliberately destroy our country with his Nazi agenda. Congress is willingly going along with him to help him do it–both Democrats and Republicans.

          • http://none Bob Knutson

            The Democrats took control of Congress in January, 2007. All excess spending after that date must necessarily fall on their shoulders.

            Hopper: Ah, OK. Under new management. So it’s your fault!
            Princess: No, no, no, someone else messed it up.

            DENNISO,where do you get your facts,make them up? unemployment was 6.4% when bush left office,it’s now almost 10% and most economic experts says if you count everyone it’s around 21%.FACT: obama has tripled our deficit since taking office.two years ago,the total debt of the gov. was 69%,it’s now 94%.as far as the wars,it makes up 3% of our national debt!besides the dem have been in charge of congress 4yrs now and things just keep getting worse.

          • Denniso

            If you know anything at all about economics or history,then you would know that we were facing a collapse the size of which we haven’t seen since ’29, and that the economy doesn’t just turn around overnight from what was a global panic that began under Bush, not Obama. We had a bubble market in housing which is one of the major aspects of the economy…the bubble burst and the market shrinks by maybe 30%. The resale market and the construction market are both affected adversely and can’t rebound overnight to the bubble levels.

            Bush began the bailouts and tried to bail the auto companies out but the Repubs wouldn’t go along. Obama continued what Bush started because virtually every economist in the world said that it was necessary to avoid another great depression. Obama didn’t bailout and
            stimulate the economy to try to ruin the country or for personal gain.
            He did it because there appeared to be no choice. If you have an ounce of objectivity you know that had Obama done nothing and let the economy crater even more, the Repubs would be calling for his hide for
            doing nothing and letting the market correct itself.

            Denniso – blah, blah, blah. All you do is spew. What CONSTRUCTIVE thing do you have to offer? Defending BHO? We’re not going to buy it. Nor will any other American with 2 working brain cells. BHO is a LIB DEMOCRAT. Congress is DEMOCRAT controlled and won’t give the Republicans the time of day. So why can’t these crybabies get something done? Nobody is standing in their way! Only thing they know how to do is spend, spend, spend, and blame Bush. And what have they accomplished? More debt in 18 months than GWB’s administration in 8 years. Increased unemployment, destruction of our health care system.

            It’s just that the RePublicans seem to need reminding who got us to this point —their golden boy –Shrub! If they are still SO proud of him why don’t we hear them crowing about everything he accomplished while serving his 8 years in office. If it wasn’t for the 9/11–WMD hunt–Saddam capture–nation building chapter, he would have had nothing to talk about and probably been a one term failure instead of a 2 term failure leaving office in shame. Do we miss him yet? HELL NO!
            P.S. If the RePublicans want to keep Obama in the White House, here’s a tip….nominate Palin. YOU Betcha!

          • Denniso

            I agree totally, the Repubs think we fear Palin as a candidate…they can’t imagine we see her as a joke and would love to see her run again. She already helped cost McCain the election and will do so again whether she is on top or not.

          • Lubo

            Denniso…How VERY little you understand about economics and FREE MARKET systems. Typical Liberal mind crazing MUSH! OBLAMA is doing the same thing FDR did and the only difference is this is the NEW NEW DEAL!…OR RAW DEAL!!!! FDR’s progressive crap prolonged the depression by ten years then and OBLAMA’s new deal will do the same this go around, if not more. It could take two decades to recover from this FOOLISH spending. Basic common sense or honest adult thinking, seems to elude you.

          • Denniso

            OK, history/math whiz…FDR took office in ’33. The war effectively ended the worst of the depression w/ war production and full employment. And, when did the war start? Was that ’41 and into ’42?

            Can you do the math? Is it maybe a total of 8 yrs and 9 at the most that the depression existed under FDR? I wonder then, how FDR ‘prolonged the depression by 10 yrs’?

            Do some studying.

          • Lubo

            Denisso…We do study and that is the reason that your liberal revisionist history don’t fly anymore. Fact is, progressive idiots like FDR, WW, Carter and Oblama have done more damage to this country than our enemies have. FDR’s entitlement crap was the prelude of things to come, was unconstitutional then and still is today, and is the DIRECT RESULT of our TRILLIONS in DEBT. Maybe one day you pathethic socialists may figure out that an honest days WORK and minding your own business is the answer?

            Maybe OBLAMA should have picked another progressive hero to parrot, you think? Lastly, at least I am an independent AMERICAN, free thinking self-reliant individual who can stand on his own two feet without bitching and complaining about the “Rich” or my neighbor’s house, wife, car, etc. You people are pathetic!

        • spike

          Hey, Denniso,
          I’m not really sure what country you hail from, but I can tell by your language you aren’t native to America? Anyway, Obama had,has, and has had a choice. If you recall, he and McCain were called to the White House by Bush, and told what the Tarp was, and given input about it. Then the collossal LIAR on March l3, 2009 as he pumped Trillions of dollars into the monetary system, had the balls to have a smoke and mirrors show about the Bonuses for AIG. Now, sir, the bonus agreement was agreed to when the TARP money was given. How do I know that? I know it for a fact FACT, SIR. I have a relative who is testifying before Congress about that money on a regular basis. I cannot say who he is, but trust me, either the Pres is illiterate, or a LIAR or both, because he should have, and had every opportunity to READ the bill. So guess what? If you want to play the blame game, LET’S go back to the CLINTON ADMINISTRATION when the whole housing bubble started. It was a great way to grow an economy. Yeah, keep building until every square inch of land is gone, all the trees are gone, and keep selling houses to immigrants, and illegals who can’t afford them. How do I know this? I was selling my house in 06, and every one who came through it was Spanish EVERY ONE!!! When I inquired about more that half of these people to my realtor, he told me time after time, these were sub prime borrowers who couldn’t really afford this…Then let’s talk about Bank of America giving credit/CREDIT FREAKIN CARDS to people who have no social security number, shall we? THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN LET TO FALL ON THEIR ASS. Instead, look what the CEO did on new year’s eve? Right before he left? Yeah, Denniso, It’s all BUSH’s fault. Maybe you are a plant, or maybe you just suck off our government so you can send it all “home”…I don’t know, but don’t use big words you don’t understand, like CONSTITUTION, DECLARATION, LIBERTY, OR ELECTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. You are probably recieving some form of government aid, I would bet on it.

      • Ed Lester

        Dan, you have hit the nail on the head, perhaps, inadvertently. Obama is under “control” but not his own. His leadership on all the substantial issues that, unfortunately, come under his purview is delayed and, often, truncated because he awaits aproval from his Saudi masters (remember al Mansour paid his Harvard tuition). Even his halting, staccato, affected speech patterns, emanates from a practice of speaking to conceal rather than to communicate. When plausible deniability and pleasing your Saudi masters are your overriding purposes, you speak mostly from scripted materials prepared and approved, in advance, and scrolled on tele prompters. Mr. Obama can be summed up in one word “oily”.

        • Robert Smith

          Ed thinks it’s Obama who is under control of Islam.

          What about Bush? He’s the one who let the Bin Laden family leave America even though most other airplanes were stuck on the ground.

          Among them was Osama’s brother-in-law Mohammed Jamal Khalifa. He is thought to be an important figure in al Qaeda, but apparently the Bush administration didn’t do enough of an investigation. He was among those who flew out immediately afrter 911 while they were arresting innoscent college professors.

          Khalifa has been linked to Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, as well as to the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole. Khalifa is also thought to have provided crucial start-up money to Abu Sayyaf, the Philippine terrorist group.

          But Bush and company let him go. He is only one of several other sterling examples of Bush administration incompitance.

            Robert,
            First show me proof that he was among the ones flown out. Two, One of your heroes let OBL go when he was handed to him on a platter, KLINTOON sound familiar? Three at the time he released them there were no warrents out on any of them. If you commit a crime of ANY type, do we hold your wife and daughter to bait you in?? You libbies want it both ways. All it boils down to is you want to rid your heroes of blame and work your azzes off to make Bush into a scape goat. He was guilty of a lot of things but not everything you try to hang on him!! Well your arrogant, two faced, backstabbing, America destroying leader is guilty as well!!

          • http://naver samurai

            Yea, right! In 1993 and 2000 Bush wasn’t even in office, so Clinton takes the blame, moron! Cite your sources! Cite your sources! Just another marxist, gay loving, baby killing, lib who like to hear himself talk. Can we stop drinking kool aid? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            ROBERT SMITH,get your facts straight! bush had only been in office 7 months before the 9/11 attack,what about the 2 yrs the terrorist trained here in the US under clinton.in fact ,during an interview with CNN,bin laden said the reason they attacked the trade center a 2nd time was because of the lack of response after the 1st attack lead them to believe the US was weak.if you remember,clinton bombed a former training camp that was no longer being used.twice clinton had the chance to get bin laden,first time an ally had bin laden jailed but clinton said we didn’t want him,second time one of our snipers had him in their sights waiting for an okay but was nixed by the clinton administration!

            I DO believe that there are NO “innocent” college professors for the most part. I believe that instead of filling the heads of the students that they have control over with theories of what could have been if the Soviet Union would still be in existance, and their fauning over the type of government, “each according to his own”, those professors should be tried for treason along with their willing accomplices.
            Professors need to teach history and economics instead of rewriting history and allowing the inept congress to just spend their way into oblivion without muttering one single word in opposition.

          • http://donthaveone Beberoni

            This is a lie, an out and out lie, and you cannot prove what you say. However, if you want to place blame for letting Bin Laden go free, check the Clinton admin. 3 times they were offered him without having to spend a dime to hunt him, and Billy boy said no, and turned and grabbed another cigar to play with. This can be factually backed up by history, as it happened. What you say, cannot. That is the difference.

          • spike

            Dude, wake up!! Al Gore knew who Osama bin Laden was when he interrogated Ollie North–know how long ago that was? And through HOW MANY administrations was he allowed to run free and build up guns, ammo, money and Jihad men. Clinton turned a blind eye, and played the Oh, let’s send inspectors into Iraq to see if the baby formula has wmd’s in it…and gave them plenty of time to hide em or ditch em and let somebody else’s administration worry about it. Bush did plenty wrong by allowing the sub prime garbage to go on, and riding the housing bubble the Clinton’s created when they decided homeownership was a right, not a priviledge. Well, They and Bank of america, decided that credit was a right, not a priviledge when they issued credit to HOW MANY THOUSANDS who did not/do not have social security numbers, and what did that amount to, WELFARE. They got Tarp money to cover their ass, and what they did? I hear no one complaining. So, yeah, Bush spent money like a drunken sailor. However, part of his spending was on 2 wars, and I don’t think the day after 9/ll you all wanted him just to forgive and forget and be Osama’s bff.

          Thank you and A Men. The rest of these guys need to move on and quit blaming Bush for everything. If they want to keep living in the past then we need to go back in the past to Oh I don’t know, maybe Clinton !!! Yah! That’s a good one ! Talk about the economy tanking, Let go back to the take over of our country’s economy by the privledge staus of Chinese imports with everything from tooth paste to clothing to furniture and on and on. Lets go back to NAFTA ! And how about the cutting way back on our military! How about we give a thought or two about Black Hawk down ! And I could go on ! Give it up ! Bush is out and Obama is in and he owns everything that is happening since he got here! The man has an all democratic controled congress and gets everything he wants even to the tune of ramming health care and every stupid bill under the sun down our throat and you people still keep crying Bush ! Bull S–T !

But, the way he speaks: halting, staccato, … to conceal rather that communicate…ED!! you hit the nail on the head. This has bothered me since his campaign. I couldn’t put my finger on it til recently, BUT NOW THAT YOU HAD THE BALLS TO SAY IT, IT’S FREAKIN RIGHT!!! TO CONCEAL THINGS!! YES, INDEED, THAT IS HIS GAME.

    • FreedomFighter

      Obama is using the communist political playbook. Blame it on Bush and keep telling the lie, suppress the truth and maybe just enough busy Americans that only see a sound bite or 5 second clip on TV will believe the lie.

      Progressive Liberal/Communist/Socialists have no honor or morals or god, they will say anything, do anything to achieve the agenda, because “the ends justify the means” for them. Lies, deceit, and confusion are the ways to achieve power and money for these corrupt and evil people.

      I don’t believe the Progressive Liberal/Communists will give up power in November when voted out. Czars are in place, the economy is a wreck, now is the time for some type of dramatic action to consolidate said power at the expense of American’s liberty and freedom. The corrupt liars will not go without one last ditch attempt at complete control of America- be ready.

            Hi Dawn,

            You suggest: ;Look at history!

            I have. During the eight years Bush was president he took the budget surplus Clinton left, squandered it, and took America into the biggest debt ever.

            We have lost the respect of the world and gotten into two wars, one because of a boatload of lies.

            Afganastan is now a quagmyre that should have been given aid for schools after the Russans left. Remember Charlie Wilson's War? It was in Afganastan where U.S. Congressman Charlie Wilson (D-TX) helped the Afgans kick Russian butt. The thing he advocated was EDUCATION after the Russians left but he was ignored by the Reagan administration who were just interested in war, not in making friends during the peace. The complications after that left the door open for the nasties who hijacked the country.

            Rob

          • DaveH

            First of all, Robert, the budget was balanced in spite of Clinton, not as a result of Clinton:
            http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=5656

            And Bush (although he and Congress did spend like drunken sailors) is paling in comparison to the Obama spending. Actually that was unfair to drunken sailors because they are spending their own money.

            We never had the respect of the world. Liberals everywhere have envied the United States ever since I can remember.

            Do you also believe in Chemtrails, The Illuminati, The New World Order? You, my friend, are paranoid. If you think you can’t find the “truth” anywhere but from FOX News, Beck, Limbaugh and Palin…let me introduce you to a little friend called Google. Try it…but be careful…you may not like what you see.

          • Dan Burke

            @Greg

            Some of us use Google and still believe that Glenn Beck and Fox News are more correct than the mainstream media. Sometimes it is all in the viewpoint you bring and thus the questions you are willing to ask.

            To illustrate, I’ll use IT. When I want to fix a computer problem I have not encountered before, I get the error code and put it into Google. When it doesn’t produce the solution, I refine my query according to the problem I am facing and my experience/knowledge. Then when I get the search results, I scan the summaries on Google to find those most likely to include what others have found to fix the problem.

            So it is when we scan using Google to find answers to questions on the internet. Do you really read every single article about Obama and the Government’s economic policies (way more than the 2000 page health care bill our elected officials did NOT read)? Or do you pick and choose after performing a specific search on a certain related topic?

            Think of it this way. If all I read is stuff that explains how Marxism is so great and will save the economic world, you SHOULD expect that I will evaluate everything I read according to that expectation. Chances are that I will then disbelieve or even totally skip over conflicting sources. Well, then should you be surprised that as a capitalist if I do the same in reverse to communism and marxism? Not in the least. This is why I don’t expect those that believe in marxism/communism to really believe what I write. I know upfront that they are not intent on reading what I have to say. So why do I say anything? Because I happen to believe I have taken for too much knowledge from my fellow capitalists without giving back in kind so it about time I try doing so again and again as I strive to improve myself.

America is being destroyed from the inside out by this bunch of corrupt, liberal regressives, they must be stopped and a bunch of these ridiculous job killing laws repealed. We must make Obama a lame duck president for his last two years in office…or sooner, if we can make him show his valid birth certificate, pass ports from the 1980′s and college transcripts. I foresee a start of a new beginning if we can throw these Democratic bums out in November and start over with real representation. You will note that a lot of the old RINOS will not be on the Republican ballot in November…there will be more added before the elections. We want real conservatives that want to do what is right for the American tax payer. It is time for the RINOS and DEMORATS to go.

The GOP isn’t the answer to any of this countries problems. There more like the cause than anything else. Obama doesn’t blame Bush for enough if you ask me. The sad thing is the right is the one running around playing the blame game. Thats all you see on TV. Boener and McConnell both do it eveyday. How long have they been in congress??

            I presume you are making reference to the christian (and commy) cult leader Jim Jones where you reference Kool-Aid. It might be more accurate if you got the poison correct. It was cyanide-laced grape flavored Flavor Aid (often misidentified as Kool-Aid). It was one of the largest, 900 men, women, and children, murder / suicides of Americans.

            So, Kool-Aid is still a refreshing drink that shouldn't be tainted with the falsehood of its alleged involvement in Jonestown. Please get your facts straight.

          Jennifer, we conservative believe in our countries past history, 200 plus years of innovations that we have made. This would never have happened under a communist country, or a socialist country like Obama wants to give us. He told Joe the Plumber, come on Joe, we need to share the wealth (Communism) Look around you and see what we have in material things. We are way ahead of the Communist Countries due to our innovations, and our free capitalist Society. Why would we ever want to change something that has been so good to us. Muslim Obama want to change all that for Communism. Name me one country that has made more advances in our short time of being a country. You cannot do it.

          • Lubo

            Wayne…. You will never get a response back from the leftist progressive libs on that question!

            and just another thought about OBLAMA making his dumb marxist statement to Joe the Plumber, what he really meant was “Let’s spread the DEBT around”, even to our unborn grandchildren!

          • Robert Smith

            Joe the Plumber… Ahhhh, such fine memories of that poor soul who was manipulated almost as handily as Norma McCorvey and her conversion by the good old Reverend Philip (“Flip”) Benham, national director of the militant antiabortion group Operation Rescue

            Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (Joe the Plumber) was originally not expressing any particular favorite candidate for President. Then he got his conversion to the right.

            Then it became obvious he was just trying another hustle. He got a small book deal, a few speaking gigs, and hmmmmm, I wonder how he’s doing today. Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher according to a Toledo Blade article stated, “Mr. Wurzelbacher said he works under Al Newell’s license, but according to Ohio building regulations, he must maintain his own license to do plumbing work. He is also not registered to operate as a plumber in Ohio, which means he’s not a plumber.”

            After the election he was speaking to a reporter after a speech. Mr. Wurzelbacher said that “McCain was trying to use [him]“, and accused McCain of having “really screwed [Wurzelbacher's] life up”.

            Sounds right to me, just like Norma’s life has taken a turn for the worst having been arrested recently.

          Jennifer,
          Oh you of limited brain power ! I have no idea where you are coming from. I will say this though, stand back and watch what is about to happen ! People of thought are about to straighten some things out around here for a change ! And I don’t mean Republicans against Democrats ! I’m talking about brains against just plain STUPID ! To control a President you have to be able to control the House and Senate! The one with more power than Obama is Pelosi and she needs to retire ! Get rid of her and you can control congress. The president can’t do one thing without the OK of congress so when you elect people to congress you need to make sure you put your vote on the right person. Just how honest is that person? The majority of them are not honest or moral and yet we just run in to the poles and quickly vote mostly for the incumbant and hurry on our way smiling at how we have done our patriotic duty ! When in fact if we vote the way you seem to think, we could be putting Putan in office and then we can justify our stupidity by blamming the other party or the past office holders ! Obama is in office because a lot of people bought the ideas he handed out, so much so that they didn’t even bother to be concerned that his birth place was of great importance, his school and college records were of great importance, his religious beliefs were of major importance . It is the sum total of all these things that make up the escence of the man. He spouted words of transformation and people bought it . Each one bought it to their own ideas of what transformation was and not to what his ideas of transformation was ! I would say that 80 percent of the people voted for him strictly because of his skin color ! I don’t think any of you gave a thought to the fact that he was a socialist in his politics ! You never heard any of that in his speaches. It was as if you were at a Elvis concert and nothing else mattered except that he was there standing before you and he wanted your vote and by God you were going to give it to him ! I have one question for you. Now that you got him just exactly what has he done for you ?

            Good work. I wonder how the blacks in the United States, who voted 90% for Obama, feel now that he is putting all his energy on making the illegal (mostly Hispanic) people legal and able to vote for him?

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          And they will be controlling things after these next two elections Jennifer. And then the economy will start rolling again, and people can get back to work and off of the government handouts that Obama has escalated and grown again just like every stinking democrat that comes into power. The first thing they do is create more social agencies that we all get to pay for the rest of our lives, then expand these social agencies so that we all get to pay a little more to support them the rest of our lives. Well, I for one am sick of it. Having never received a government penny in my life, and being the one getting the ever loving life sucked out of me by the government, to give these things to the lazy S.O.B.’S that dont feel like they should have to work, and Im sick and tired of it. Screw the left wing liberal democrats who think I should pay health insurance for Joe Crack Dealer down the street because he doesnt feel like working for a living. Screw that, and screw every democrat and vote them all out of office. And you know what Jennifer, that is just what America is going to do, because we are all sick of it.

        From Freedom Fighter: >>>Blame it (Afganistan & Iraq) on Bush and keep telling the lie, suppress the truth <<<

        If not Bush and his crew who lied and got us into Afganistan and Iraq then who? Is there some connection to Obama's father? Is there a connection to his wife's sister? Is there a connection to his preacher?

        Just WHO is to blame for Afganistan and Iraq if it isn't Bush?

        Saddam didn't attack, train, or otherwise influence 911. That connection has been proven to have been false. The weapons of mass distruction are false.

        Just how can Bush NOT be blamed for our involvement in those quagmyers?

            Besides, I have a relative that went through the actual training camps that saddam used to train some of these terrorists. Saddam was paying the family of any suicide bomber $20,000. Sure he wasn’t in on any terroistic activites.

            Remember the The Downing Street "Memo" that exposed so many of Bush's lies?

          Yeah, how would you all have responded, if on 9/l2/01, GWB had gotten up in front of the nation, and said”my fellow Americans, all of this is our fault (for what???) and we deserved it, I have decided to just forgive this act of terror/violence/whatever name you fill it in…and just go on about our business..” Do any of you look at a map? Do you see where these countries are located in relation to each other and the world’s biggest oil supplies? How about Isreal? Our only real ally in the mid east, and we shun her? Hillary Clinton whose administration dissed Netanyahu, was seen courting the Jewish vote standing in front of a sea of Isreali flags waving…I think, finally, even Hillary gets it. Guys, stop blaming and start electing people who will work for us. Either we keep these guys accountable or we’re sunk.

          • http://PERSONALLIBERTYDIGEST e.poet

            Spike, Please don’t even consider Hillary C. as a potential answer to all this down the line. She is not only NOT an answer, she would be a slicker form of the same we are getting right now. Study her personal background, this is one evil woman. Her thesis at Wellesley College was a diatribe in praise of Communist Saul Alinsky (whose political entre’ consists of any means are justified by the end) titled “There Is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” Not only did she glom on to him as her hero, He, himself, invited her take an internship with him, and thought she was making a huge mistake in not taking him up on this, instead choosing Yale Law School. She informed Saul, that only by marching through America’s elit institutions could she achieve real power and change the system from within. While at Yale, she soon fell in with the leftist fringe groups. These views must be seen in the light of the times in which they occurred. These were the radical hippy-dippy, Socialist/Communist,Weathermen inspired late 1960′s-early 70′s. I know, because I am contemporaneous to her. I lived it, I saw it, and it was ugly for America. Her big problem with Alinsky at the time, was he was working on too small a scale, he failed to build a NATIONAL MOVEMENT based on his ideas. She VOLUNTEERED to help the Black Panthers legal defense of Bobby Seale, and was offered a summer internship at the Berkeley Law Office of Robert Treuhaft, a lifelong member of the Stalinist faction of the Communist Party. She has made statements about being proud of being a “Progressive”, rooted in the early 1900′s Progressive Movement. (research this, it’s a horror show of racism, eugenics, and vile elitism, ie: Woodrow Wilson, Edward Bernays, Margaret Sanger, just to name a few. Now if you really want to see how truly ugly this gets, consider this, Goebbles, Hitlers propaganda man, proudly stated in his personal journals that the Third Reich were deeply indebted to, and learned everyhing they knew and practiced in the art of propaganda fom Woodrow Wilson, and Edward Bernays.) Wow! Hillary keeps such swell political company in her political views. How we all admire that in her! Also, google up Cloward and Piven,(these are the people who developed a strategy for the destuction of the United States, by overwhelming the obligations and structure of the country, and collapsing it from the top down, to achieve redistribution of wealth) guess what you see, a picture of Bill and Hillary very warmly greeting them at some splashey social function. If you really want to get a look and a little understanding at what is being perpetrated on the citizens of this amazing country, we call THE U.S.A., read “Liberal Fascism” by Jonah Goldberg, please, as you read, look up the notes at the back of the book, there is a plethora of information, sources, and good ideas for further research. God Bless those who CHOOSE to BECOME INFORMED.

          So, who got us into Iraq ans Afghanistan? Muslims, that’s who. Islam has been at war with the non-Islamic world for around 1,500 years. Read a little of the history.

          • Wayne

            I agree. The Muslim Extremist have been killing our people way back in the 70′s. Our emabassies have been bombed, our diplomats being killed, our 250 plus soldiers that was killed in the bombing in Lebanon several years ago by the extremist. Iraq was shooting at our military plane patrolling the skys over Irag and protecing the curds in the northern part of Iraq from being killed. The Muslim Extremist kept pushing us and pushing us. Had I been the president I would have nipped this in the bud earlier. Look at Iran holding our embassy staff hostage for almost a year. What did our Democrat President, Jimmy Carter do. He made a bungled attempt to free them and got 8 our our soldiers killed. Some of the folks on here are not only Democrats, they must be Muslim Democrats. Let’s take our country back in Nov. folks.

        • Jeep

          Let’s see Robert Smith, where to begin. I suppose by asking the question: Exactly who is lying to whom? You ask, “Just WHO is to blame for Afganistan and Iraq if it isn’t Bush?” How about the terrorists first, and then those who aid and support them. You know, like Saddam and the former Taliban rulers in Afghanistan. But, under lib speak it is ALWAYS best to “blame” America and forgive the guilty. This is why true patriots despise your attitude and are fed up with libs always taking the side of our would be oppressors and the enemies of freedom. You say that the “…weapons of mass distruction are false.” You lie. Did you forget about the tons of sarin gas, the biological agents and the Russian scientists allowed to exit Iraq before the invasion? How about the plethora of Iraqi scientists that fled to Syria? Or, maybe you didn’t hear about the 20,000 lbs. of enriched uranium discovered in Iraq last year. In short, you lib pansy, go back to your America hating hole and use your crayons to make another I hate Bush sign. Meanwhile, the conservative/libertarian movement afoot in our great country will wrest back control from those who seek to steal our heritage, and put our nation back on a properous course towards freedom and liberty.

So in that sense you have stolen our heritage of being a honest decent nation. That hardly makes you respectable or a patriot.

            T Eddie47d…typical liberal mindset. You aren’t even smart enough to understand you must first have a PLACE to fight the enemy unless you want to fight them here on your street corner or between two rocks in the Afghan mountains.

            The enemy WAS in IRAQ, did have a presence there then, and still does now, was connected to SH and SH had weapons of mass destruction with the will and the intent to use them against us. I think his murderous record of killing innocent people by the millions should speak for itself, don’t you? Have you ever stopped to THINK, that just maybe IRAQ was used to lure the enemy into a defined target area so we could kill them and SH? Or maybe a better or more liberal military strategy would be to fight the war against terrorism on the ENEMY’S terms between two rocks in the Afghan Mtns? That being the case, I bet we could have depended on you to do the hand to hand combat with the enemy? Russia has already tried this strategy and got their BUTTS kicked.

            Maybe you should go back in time and see why the American people, as well as the CONGRESS, overwhelmingly supported the war in Iraq.

            Jeep, keep fighting the good fight fellow patriot.

            April 2004, the Jordanian
            authorities captured an al-Qaeda terrorist cell
            that worked out of Jordan. The terrorists had about 20
            tons of chemicals, including poison gas! That’s right,
            20 tons of chemicals—or weapons of mass destruction.
            The al-Qaeda leader in Jordan has confessed that they
            planned to kill 80,000 Jordanians with those chemicals.
            King Abdullah ii of Jordan told the
            San Francisco Chronicle that “It was
            a major, major operation. … It would
            have decapitated the government”.
            Where did these terrorists get the
            poison gas? The Jordanians know it
            came from Syria—which in itself is a
            dangerous act of war by that terrorist-
            sponsoring nation. Terrorism expert John Loftus: There’s a lot of reason to think [the source
            of the chemicals] might be Iraq. We captured Iraqi members
            of al-Qaeda, who’ve been trained in Iraq. Syria does have the ability to produce certain
            kinds of nerve gasses, but in small quantities. The large
            stockpiles were known to be in Iraq. The best U.S. and allied
            intelligence say that in the 10 weeks before the Iraq war,
            Saddam’s Russian adviser told him to get rid of all the nerve
            gas. … So they shipped it across the border
            to Syria and Lebanon and buried it. …
            there’s no doubt these guys confessed
            on Jordanian television that they received
            the training for this mission in Iraq. …
            And from the description it appears
            this is the form of nerve gas known as
            vx that Saddam Hussein used to kill hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Kurds.

          What was the lie about Afganistan. Bush said if you do not give Bin Lardin up we will come in and get him. Even Obama agrees with that war. Do you think Obama is lying also?

          • eddie47d

            Both sides agreed that Afghanistan had to be dealt with. At least the al Qaida that were based there. The left also didn’t like the cozy relationship we had with Saudi Arabia and we all know how they were involved with 9/11.

            Obama’s ideologies does not fit into the main stream of this country. This country was founded on Christian Principles, not on Muslim principles. Obama wants Communism, Socialism, or what ever you want to call it. This is not what made this country great. I personally don’t want to have to work to keep some doper in his addiction. You know, like Obama said, we must share the wealth. The hell with that. We all need to take responsibility for our actions which Obama is not doing.

            you are correct. And Ollie North knew who Osam Bin Laden was in the 80′s. But the fact remains, folks. Obama and his “share the wealth” mantra are convincing the weak minded, “the government owes me” people, that “the rich” should “share the wealth” that’s communist drivel if ever I heard it.

          • Vicki

            Just remember the Communist mantra
            “From each according to his abilities. To each according to his need.”

            Humans have a VERY overblown sense of “need”. Look around at the poorest of the poor. They live. Their actual need is met.

            That is what Communism offers. Of course the surplus has to be stored and controlled by someone. That someone would be the government elite. THEY are the ones who have all the excess beyond what the “people need”

            All about communism is a lie to control the very people whom the communist leaders claim to be freeing.

            I offer as proof EVERY communist country in the WORLD. Past and present.

SO I THINK THEY ARE ACORN PLANTS,OBAMMY HIMSELF OR JUST PLAN RETATDED.

        • Mark

          Robert doesn’t seem to remember that Sadam used Nerve Gas on his own people. Nerve Gas is classified as a weapon of mass destruction. He was seeking the tools to deliver that weapon further away. Sadam’s past history, invading his neighbor to the south, indicate he was not going to stop on his own. He wouldn’t let international observers keep looking for the hideout for this stuff. So 1 + 1 = 2.

          Your old buddy Bill Clinton, among other things, made it illegal for the US to use ‘bad people’ as spies. He single handedly wiped out our ability to see into the bad lands and gain any good intell. So if we had bad intell it was Clinton’s fault.

          All your Democratic buddies voted for the War too, based on the bad intell. You can call it lies if you want, Obama is the master at that, but thats another story in itself.

          Most importantly, Rule No 1 in War, when someone invades your home, i.e. 9-11, do whatever it takes to move the battle back to their home and away from your home. So with the War in Iraq the enemy now has to fight soldiers with guns and not us in our homes. Notice there hasn’t been a new 9-11 since Iraq!!!

          • Wayne

            Mark, it is impossible to try to explain this to some of the the folks on this forum. They either have forgot, or they are just like Obama. I agree with you, but, I am of sane mind and I see what is happening.

        • marvin

          so it was ok for sadam to murder hundreds of thousands of his own people then invade kuwait and set their oil wells on fire in your way of thinking that was ok so bush done it

        • Wayne

          I heard one of Saddams own generals, who had fled Iraq, said he personally witnessed Sadam’s hinchmens take a person, I don’t remember what they said he did, and dump him in a vat of acid. When the took him out there was only bones left. Good job, Robert, for defending a person who could do that to any human being, regardless of what they did. This is what most Americans are against, why aren’t you and your liberal Democrats against this. This is why we need good decent people in our government that deplores things like this. I have never had any regret that this ruthless dictator,Sadam was toppled from power. We need to do the same thing to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran in case you do not watch the news.

          Just to clear up some misstatements here, the War we are engaged in started in 1979 when radical islamists took over the American embassy in Iran, it has not stopped since then. If you take the time to read osama bin ladin’s book and check your history you will find that osama failed in his attacks on the “Near Enemy” so he shifted gears and went after the “Far Enemy” us. Does anyone remember the attacks on Americans in Europe, Lebanon,and on the military bases in the middle east, the oil embargoes, Somalia,the U.S.S. Cole,the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Africa and the middle east, the TWO terrorist training camps found in Iraq with commercial aircraft set up to train on, the assassination attempt on Bush Sr., the mobile chemical labs unearthed in Iraq, the 250 metric TONS of enriched Uranium found in Iraq that was sold to the Canadian’s power authority by the New Iraqi government, the terrorists killed in Peru with several pounds of enriched Uranium, the attacks on 9/11/01 and since? This War has been going on for a long time now, It is just getting closer to home now as the Enemy gets better training more financing and more sophistication. We did not start this, no matter what the blame the U.S. crowd says, this is just another crew looking for world domination just like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and every other megalomaniac despot in history. G.W.Bush put troops on the ground to take the War back to the Enemy. Better to fight on your enemy’s homelands than your own. I was one of those troops, we did what we could with what we had. Now we need to continue to go after our Enemy who looks to destroy and enslave. Read what the Enemy has written for distribution to their own people, their “manifestos” and books and propaganda, Just know it for what it is before you read it and know your history so you are not confused by the way they twist it. The U.S. is facing some hard times due to the greed and power lust of a comparative few. Everything can be traced back to the root causes and persons responsible, Just don’t believe them when they lie and blame someone else.

          ROBERT SMITH,Bush was given info from our intelligence that said there was wmd’s.bush presented the same info to the congressional committee who voted unanimously to present it to congress who also voted unanimously to go to iraq.the british intell presented the same info to tony blair.after defeating iraq, most of iraq’s top men captured also thought sadaam had wmd’s.

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          Let me ask you this, bobby baby. Yes, they did find Al Quaeda training centers in Iraq, and did trace money and training to them. And yes, they had 30 pages of inventoried weapons of mass destruction, that was done during the Clinton administration, by the United Nations inspectors. Remember those? Oh, you forgot. How silly of you. And also, remember how before Bush was even a candidate to run for president, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Tom Dashele, Ted Kennedy, and many more of your left wing heroe’s, appeared on TV, live TV, as I watched it myself, all declaring that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction and had to be stopped. Remember that bobby boy? I do, because I watched them say it on TV, and I heard them all crying it out from the mountain tops on the radio. And this was before Bush was even a candidate for the presidency for his first term. So get out of here with your stinking left wing liberal pacifist appeasing lies, blaming Bush, when all your left wing heroes cried about it first, then they all voted to go to war. So Bush’s illegal war? You better think again. This thing has democrats written all over it. And I agreed with it, until the dems took over and decided to cut and run, and then decided to not talk to the general running the war but once every six weeks, then fired him for telling the truth about Obama not having talked to him for 6 weeks. Thats the part that should be illegal pal. But you want to point fingers, you better come with more than your pathetic left wing liberal lies, because you see, some of us are actually educated enough to know when you lefties are lying, which is usually when we see your lips move. Im just saying………….

            No Child Left Behind was meant to give incentives for the education of children. The problem with the left is that they feel by removing incentives they are helping and that just isn’t true. Never has been and never will be.

          • Lewis Munn

            Robert,

            The worst possible logic for doing bad things is to hide behind someone else’s failures that way.

            You just compound the evil.

            Obama does hide behind others, and so do you. You gotta be less of a human to hide behind someone else!

            Someone else having made a mistake, if they did, does not justify you making it too. Especially making it bigger!

            You should learn and seek the right, honest, and fair all the time. Then you do not have to sneak around making recess appointments and having secret meetings with the in-group in the dark of the night, figuring out how to cheat your way in.

            Or paying off Senators to vote for you, openly and brazenly often.

            Our government was designed to be open and to contain honest men. And women. When that is lost, all is lost.

            So many of our government people at all levels now copy our leaders, going for personal power and money, accepting some bribes openly and some in secret. And the last thing they think of is the good of anybody but themselves, and maybe their co-conspirators.

            I know only 1/3 of my congressmen are worth considering putting back in office. The rest are all blow, and work against the good of the common people, and for their own good. We need a quiet revolution!

      • Ron

        Peter,

        For real? You really believe that there were no WMD. You obviously have a short or no memory. There were photo’s and video in the 90′s that showed Sadman Killing his own people and the weapons he had to do it. The US was the only major Country to take the stand to stop the insanity that the UN failed to get involved with. If it were not for the help we have given to almost all the world in aid and loans, we would have the monies to pay for all our programs. Our economic problems are truly due to program after program that are politically bargained for. Look back into the records, find out where the monies saved and monies dished out really came from. I think you will find that the TAX and SPEND people originated it! You know the same group that is trying to destroy Capitalism!

        • Bruce D.

          I saw one of those videos of men, woman, and children laying in the street dying of Mustard Gas. It is difficult to watch on video. I do not even want to imagine the brutality of dying like that. 100,000 people died by Mustard Gas. How many have to die before it starts to bother liberals?

          • eddie47d

            I believe it was 8-10,000 Kurds who died from his gas attack and that is horrific. Remember when Nixon invaded Cambodia and stirred up the Nationalists (Kymer Rouge). That sent that country into a slippery slope. We backed a coup against Nordam Sihanouk who was a somewhat neutral leader. We then armed the Lon Nol regime who turned those weapons against the Kymer Rouge. The rest is history. Did Conservatives care at all about the nearly 2 million who were killed because of our poking our nose into another nations internal affairs? We set the stage for that horror to unfold. The Vietnamese went into Cambodia and stopped the carnage. Later in 1986 Hun Sen (Cambodia) requested negotiations so Pol Pot could go to trial. This was through international means. Ronald Reagan blocked this effort and Pol Pot didn’t go to trial until 1997.(the actual trial lasted longer). Sometimes Conservatives are only champions in their own minds. We could play this Liberal-Conservative blame game until the cows come home if that’s what you want.

          • Bruce D.

            Eddie I don’t believe anything you say and certainly not the part about Ronald Reagan. What is your source? Liberal blogs. The U.S. tried to do for Vietnam what they did for South Korea. One is a huge success story the other a terrible failure. The democrats got us into Vietnam. It was one thing to pull our boys out of harms way but to stop the funding to Vietnam by the democrats in 1975 lead to a huge slaughter of people. For that the dems have blood on their hands.

          • Bruce D.

            Here you go Eddie. You left out this part.
            President Carter’s National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, has stated that in the spring of 1979: “I encouraged the Chinese to support Pol Pot. I encouraged the Thai to help the [Khmer Rouge]. The question was how to help the Cambodian people.[sic] Pol Pot was an abomination. We could never support him. But China could.”

          • Bruce D.

            Here you go Eddie. Notice the 100,000 figure. Being a liberal you couldn’t tell the truth if you wanted to.
            Kill tally: Approaching two million, including between 150,000 and 340,000 Iraqi and between 450,000 and 730,000 Iranian combatants killed during the Iran-Iraq War. An estimated 1,000 Kuwaiti nationals killed following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. No conclusive figures for the number of Iraqis killed during the Gulf War, with estimates varying from as few as 1,500 to as many as 200,000. Over 100,000 Kurds killed or “disappeared”. No reliable figures for the number of Iraqi dissidents and Shia Muslims killed during Saddam’s reign, though estimates put the figure between 60,000 and 150,000. (Mass graves discovered following the US occupation of Iraq in 2003 suggest that the total combined figure for Kurds, Shias and dissidents killed could be as high as 300,000). Approximately 500,000 Iraqi children dead because of international trade sanctions introduced following the Gulf War.

          • Bruce D.

            You know Eddie, Pol Pot was educated in Paris on the ideology of Communism. Pol Pot took it on himself to kill anyone in Cambodia with any education at all. He wanted docile minds. I am not a Nixon fan but it is a liberal and Hollywood stretch of the imagination to blame that all on him.

          • eddie47d

            That mustard gas attack on the Kurds was in all the papers and many other news sources,8-10,000 killed.Not 100,000. You’re dragging dead bodies out of thin air or using the Iran-Iraq War to justify your count. We can all assume alot of things (about dead bodies) but beefing up figures to support one horror or another damages anyones credibility. Kind of like how many Russians died during WWII.Some say 30 million and some like to say 50 million. What a difference,so historical facts gets distorted and then nobody cares.

            Give Iraq Justice, Not Vengeance

            Human Rights Watch´s comprehensive report “Genocide in Iraq – The Anfal Campaign Against the Kurds,” originally published in July 1993, details the systematic and deliberate murder of at least 50,000 and possibly as many as 100,000 Kurds. The killings occurred between February and September 1988. “Genocide in Iraq” shows that the Kurdish victims were targeted on the basis of their ethnicity. This is a summary of the reports findings.

        • Patriot

          Well, all, here is my opinion about the WMD’s. Remember you heard it from me.
          Saddam had 6 months from the time he “threw out” the last UN (worthless) inspectors. Every time they got close, he threw them out. He had several years to move the ricin and other agents around.
          On a cloudy day, we can not track movements on the ground. Do you not think Sadddam did not move them?

          The WMD’s were moved on cloudy days into Syria, then out of Syria by boat into South America, They came up the line the same way as the tons of Cocaine comes up from South America.

          Small quantities (which is all that is needed) has been smuggled into this country and is now here, waiting for the next attack. These have been smuggled by the terrorists that are coming through our wide open borders.

          Prayer rugs have been found in the desert along the border.

          We will see the WMD’s again.

        Whether or not you believe this, Hussain did have weapons of mass destruction and had been using them on his own people. He was also a lament for the terrorists, like sanctuary cities. My husband retired Air Force and we know soldiers over there…they dug up a Russian mig that Hussain had buried in the desert…they pulled his ass out of a hole in the desert…the weapons of mass destruction are there…they are buried in the sands of the desert. Someday, they will be found and you will realize that Bush was right. The problem I have is that we should have handed Hussain over to the new government, said this is yours, mission accomplished in Iraq and left. We have overstayed in this country. Afghanistan will never be won. These people have been killing each other for centuries, they live in a culture (Muslim) that is dated back to the 14th century and basically most have not changed. You cannot fix stupid, so get the hell out and leave them to their backward ways and religion and if we leave them alone long enough, they’ll kill each other off without any of our help.

Eisenhower wrote to the new Prime Minister of the Bao Dai government, Ngo Dinh Diem, promising United States support to ensure a noncommunist Vietnam. Following through on that commitment, direct United States aid to South Vietnam began in January 1955, and American advisors began arriving in February to train the South Vietnamese army.”

        Actually, there are some historians who say that Kennedy was going to withdraw from Viet Nam and that is one of the reason he was assignated. Make no mistake, it was not one man who killed Kennedy. Then Johnson took over, and decided that we no longer needed to bomb North Vietnam. Once we stopped the bombing of the north, the war went into a downward spiral, and we wasted thousands of lives for nothing more than the pockets of the elists bankers and government entities. Make no mistake about this, my husband was in Viet Nam…I know the history because I was lived through it…the text books you are reading don’t tell you the entire truth.

        • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

          Kennedy may have been murdered because he was going to destroy the FED and we would have control over our money.

        • az wayne

          I know you can’t get all the facts, but one major Lady Bird owned all assets used in VietNam Air America, helicopter manufacturing, we knew what we were fighting for DEMOCRATIC JOHNSON and Friends bank accounts. Yes it’s not difficult to put together Johnson and friends assassination of Kennedy, only the blind can’t see.

        • Laura

          Hell, folks! By todays standards, JFK would be considered a moderate conservative! He cut taxes! He realized the importance of hard work to achieve your dreams. He understood PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! Most of his “liberal” actions were civil rights issues that absolutely needed to be addressed. My point is this, the democratic party has been transformed by the minority far left. It no longer represents the majority of Dems. Statistically, 80-85% of ALL Americans agree on major issues like, making English our official language, that the Soc. Security system is broken and needs to be SERIOUSLY addressed, that we support drilling for oil off American coasts to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, a FLAT income tax rate of 17%, building more nuclear power plants to reduce carbon emissions, that it is not possible to negotiate with terrorist organizations, that our children should be allowed to take a moment of silence in school. If we agree on so much, why don’t our politicians DO something about it? They don’t listen. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are a perfect example of this. They are part of the uber liberal left. But, we voters are to blame, too. We have continued to vote these idiots back into office time and time again. This November, take time to really understand the who/what/why of the candidates and make an informed decisions. Too many voters go to the polls after only listening to the mud slinging ads on TV, (left and right are both guilty of it) and don’t really know the men and women who are running. We HAVE to get the far left out of office for the whole country’s sake. Ok, I’ll get off my soap box now!

      • Wayne

        No, no, and no, Incorrect. I heard a gentlemen on TV one time say that all the wars we have had, has been started under a Democratic President. I have not checked this out thoughly, but the wars I do remember was started under the Democrats. This is a few I found which started under the Democrats:

        Why are most wars started by Democrats? Are they always war mongers? World War One (The War to End all Wars) – Started by a Liberal Democrat (Woodrow Wilson)
        More than 11 Million Dead and Millions .

        World War Two – Started by a Liberal Democrat (Franklin D. Roosevelt)
        62 Million Dead, Many more Millions Mamed and wounded

        Korean War( The Forgotten War) – Started by a Left Wing Liberal Democrat ( Harry S. Truman)
        8 Million Plus Dead Millions mamed and wounded.

        New-Q-Ler (Atomic)Bombs Dropped on Japan – By a Left Wing Liberal Democrat ( Harry S. Truman)
        250 Thousand Dead

        Bay of Pigs War/Invasion – Started by a Left Wing Liberal Democrat ( John F. Kennedy)
        Lots and Lots Dead and wounded
        Building of the Berlin Wall – Allowed to occur by a Left Wing Liberal Democrat ( John F. Kennedy)
        Enough Dead

        Vietnam War (The Spit on American Soldiers War) – Started by a Left Wing Liberal Democrat (John F. Kennedy)
        Millions and Millions Dead and Millions Mamed & wounded.

        People also tend to forget that, what Al-Quada and terrorism is for us today, Vietnam and communism, were for that generation. People were terrified of nuclear war, and didn’t want Russia and communism sweeping over the world. It’s so easy to judge our leaders from the past while wearing our 20/20 hindsight glasses.

    • Lubo

      DaveH…So very true….Anyone can lead in “Good Times”, however, it is in times of hardship and adversity that a person’s true CHARACTER and leadership abilities shine through. I think King Obama’s pathetic record speaks for itself, and it isn’t just him alone because the entire CONGRESS is full of these childish-foolish people who cannot manage their own affairs, much less mine or yours, or a NATION. You THINK maybe it’s time to elect some REAL leadership based upon proven CREDENTIALS instead of the “Touchy-Feely-Progressive-Socialist” emotional driven mentality.

      Let’s see if I can get this straight, we elected this “man” to the presidency, that was a community organizer(ACORN/SEIU), a junior senator, hung out with known terrorists, was raised by communist and marxist parents, attended rev. wrights “church” for 20 years, who spews hate and venom for AMERICA and WHITE FOLKS, from the pulpit, based upon the marxist teachings of black liberation theology, and finally, we did all this on the promise of “Hope and Change” but never asked just what that really meant? In addition, he said he would “Fundamentally transform America” but nobody even asked the question just as to what that transformation would be? Go figure? It appears that we have a “Common Sense” problem in America, now doesn’t it?

      Bottom line, he is MANY things but a leader he is NOT. Even the mention of the “Prior Administration” reflects a lack of BASIC leadership skills. In fact, it is just down right foolish…period….. and WE THE PEOPLE aren’t buying it.

      The fact is, He is BEST at bashing Bush or making little childish foolish jokes or bowing down to foreign leaders or running down the steps of Air Force-1 or flying around the world bashing our GREAT Country or spending our grandchildren into economic slavery or shooting 3-point hoops, but in the end, the aforementioned behavior and resulting condition of AMERICA has revealed his true character and inability, to lead this GREAT NATION, back to FREEDOM and PROSPERITY.

      I think in the end, when his time as president is up, he will go down in history as the worst president this nation has ever had, JIMMY CARTER TIMES 10! The only question I have, will the republic survive him before he and his marxist friends can fully implement his radical 60′s C&P agenda for AMERICA.

        Amen, baby. I struggled long and hard before I VOTED VERY HARD AGAINST BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. I wasn’t the biggest McCain fan, but I knew one thing: he had the mental toughness to deal with the foreign climate we find ourselves in. Someone who would stand for his country long and hard, because he already did it. These men campaigned hard for the opportunity to inherit this financial mess. They don’t deserve pity. I can tell you this: I’m NOT paying the bill for this unmanageable healthcare bill, and I’m NOT PAYING A FINE FOR NOT BUYING IT.

No one working will benefit. Only the lazy who refuse to work, will get rewarded for their bad behavior. Kind of like GM and Chrysler. Lets reward failure, and punish the successful by taxing them more and making the working people all pay more. Where the hell did we take a turn down this road? Its unbelievable. Punish success, and reward failure. How did we get to this? Only answer I have, is that we let lawyers control things. There you go.

After nearly 52 years in power one would think that blaming something so far in the past would have stopped. No way. So why do you think that your president will be any different than that.

    • Derek Neuhauser

      to Harold: You said “Obama will not be re-elected”.

      Uh … have you FORGOTTEN about a group called “ACORN”, and the nationwide VOTER FRAUD in 2008? In some places DOUBLE the number of registered voters. PROOF that Democrats drove across state lines to vote MULTIPLE TIMES!! Proof that many of the votes were from DEAD PEOPLE .. or people with MADE UP NAMES!!

      As long as ACORN is allowed to exist, and their member NOT thrown in Prison for Nationwide Federal Voter Fraud … then this atrocity will continue. Add to that the millions of current ILLEGAL ALIENS that Obama plans to turn into LEGAL VOTERS … you see “Houston, we have a Problem!”. Of gigantic proportions. If you think this country is in trouble now, after Obama’s election. “You ain’t seen NOTHING YET” …

    • Russ G

      During the election, I discovered a quality Obama has. 2 things happened at the same time to prove me right. The BP oil spill and the great floods of my state of Tennessee..After 12 days you could tell, he didn’t want any part of that spill..He never even mentioned on T.V.a sincere or caring word about our state or bothered to fly here for an hour to observe the floods. Thats okay Obama, we handled things on our own.Look how he handles the people of the great state of Arizona! This man does not have a caring bone in his body for people.He has an Agenda.He believes he has a calling and nothing, I mean nothing! Is going to get in his way.He has sold his soul to S.E.I.U. the AFL-CIO. For the Love of God, the unions are making desicions in our WhiteHouse..Progressive and Control freaks are scary,especially ones with his kind of Ideaology..When I say “Evil”, you think of Hitler,Nepoleon,Stallin because they used army’s and murder to advance thier Ideaology..But whats the difference if a man uses money and power to do it like Obama? For Political reasons, Glenn Bleck took back his calling Obama a racist.But he was right the first time..But he’s not a racist in the way people are thinking. He can hate Country’s”exam.Britian”,even religions..For those of you who believe he’s a CHRISTIAN man, you keep telling yourself that..I pray this man has a change of heart someday soon. To keep his word , we’re out of Iraq.Probably a year to early in my opinion and if this idiot pulls us out of Aphganastan in one year,”Just to keep his word”, were in deep “S@@t..

        Quit making this crude. I know quite a few good Blacks that I have never heard say that it was anybodies fault for where they were in life. This was because they had a very good work ethic and and knew they were the master of their own destiny. One lady is a very good friend of my wifes at work. She has worked through hardships and setbacks and has succeded in spite of them!! She, like all the others I speak of are good conservatives and would not think of voting for Nobummer!! I would rather be around ANY of these people than half the white people I am aquanted with! and I enjoy their company as much as ANY people I know!

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          I agree with you to a point, other than that most of the successful black men I grew up playing sports with, and still associate with today, if you heard them speak or read statements they write down, you would think they were racists towards blacks, when they are black themselves. You see, they tell me how it is so hard for them, because so many blacks, young blacks, are in prison, have many children with many women out of wedlock and are absent parents, and the crime rates are so high in all your predominate black cities, like Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, New York City, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Cleveland and others, it is not because of white guys. And it makes life hard on them, because of what their own race is doing. And it does keep them getting looked at in a lesser light than they deserve, because of what their own race is doing. And Im not a racist either, and I have to agree with them. And its a shame. But not racist.

    Everything from the dawn of civilization to yesterday’s supper can be blamed on GB. It’s one hell of a long list, and it includes volcanoes, tsunamis, plagues, wars, rumors of wars, fallen economies, athlete’s foot, bad breath, prickly heat and diaper rash.
    I don’t know how he does it, but that George Bush has his hand in everything. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the one who’s responsible for the mediocre sunset tonight.
    Drat that darned GB. I’ll bet he’s responsible for the battle between good and evil, too. You name it, and he’s responsible for it. I wouldn’t be surprised if GB was responsible for Al Gore’s marital woes, Bernie Madoff’s getting caught, the constant ups and downs of the stock market, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire and my inability to win the lottery.

        There are some democrats like that, so loyal to their party they follow blindly. I have lost a few friends by pointing out Obama’s rubbery spine.

        Also the economy started to tack in the Clinton years ,remember Fannie and Freddie ? Obviously NOT .
        I’m so sick and tired of people talking about “POOR PEOPLE” in New Orleans .Actually they are to blame for their own problems ,they had the money to shore up the leevies but you obviously know little about the New Orleans government ,that city is full of CROOKS ! They spent the money else where ! The governor hit the rode ,along with the police force and major Nagin.
        They actually cared little to nothing about this city ! AND when the south turned out to help N.O. they spit on us and cused those who tried to help . Ungrateful to the end , still are .
        If Obama didn’t wont the job he should have gone back to where he comes from ,which if you look at the way he left Chicago ,you’d be silent and learn a few things on YOUR OWN !

          Blame it on the Governor, is that what you would not as President (that is what Bush did) They were American people, the president should not have waited it was an emergency, those people deserved quick action and rescue from their government. For some the first rescuers were the Canadian Mounties, and that is the truth. Sweden, Germany, Mexico, France and many other countries responded faster to Katrina that our own USA and those are the facts.

            —————————————–
            Thursday, President Bush asked Governor Blanco for the legal authority to have federal authorities take over the evacuation of the city. The request was rejected out of fear of “martial law.”

            That evening, rapper Kanye West told America that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”

            So people should be able to build their homes below sea level near the sea in hurricane country, or in flood plains, or on unstable hillsides, or in fire-prone forests, and when disaster strikes, the Federal Government should rescue the ignoramuses with money from the people who did the right things? It isn’t the Federal Government’s money to give. It’s our money.
            Do you think people are going to make the effort required to do the right things if the Federal Government bails them out everytime they do something stupid?

            you want to talk about a law getting in the way? What about your hero Nobama not letting skimmers come into the gulf to skim up the oil because they had foriegn crews? A law he could have easily over ridden for a few days! Bush could not legally override the constitution!

        Robert you hear only what you want to hear. “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see.” Ben Franklin

        FACT.
        The US government cannot intervene in a state, Katrina and please don’t forget RITA, without the Governor of the state asking for help. Governor Blanco refused to ask for help until the next morning after the levees and the canal wall failed. The US military was on site in about 8 hours after the call was received. Can’t blame Bush for that part big boy. The federal Corps of Engineers and the local Levee Districts are a different matter.

        FACT
        I had an employee that was a state national guardman stationed at the Superdome. The state national guard patrolled the NO areas continuously after the storm. Sorry Hiraldo Revera, the truth is the folks at the convention center were at that site less than 8 hours. The walked to it from their homes when the waters started to receed. Remember the mandatory evacuation was ignored. MREs and water were provided in abundance to those folks immediately. If the didn’t have food or water for days, it was because they didn’t have it at their homes. There were large amounts of MREs and water for all the folks in the Superdome. I guess in Louisiana, even the poorest person eats very well and MREs aren’t considered real food.

        By the way, Rita occurred a month later and did extreme damage too. Gov Blanco ignored that part of the state, did they vote for her? I guess the media and Hollywood didn’t feel like it was worthy of them either, so those poor folks were left to rebuild themselves.

          Save your breath they are under hypnosis and can not understand your logic, the unconscious mind cannot reason for itself.

          They are nothing but robots absorbing only what limpballs feeds into their unconscious minds. They are oblivious to all others. Sad huh?

        Facts on Katrina:
        Pres Bush showed up within four days. Obama and the Gulf Oil Spill?
        The residents of New Orleans were give at least a WEEK’s notice that a Category FIVE Hurricane was headed their way. Most cities along the gulf evacuated. In New Orleans, THOUSANDS of buses sat full of gas but didn’t move .. because of the local politicians made NO preparations.

        Fact also, eight years prior to Katrina, New Orleans was sent several MILLION $$ to shore up the Levies, to prevent this kind of tradegy. What was it used for? The Mayor of New Orleans USED it to buy himself a private Jet.

        The FIRST responsibility after a major disaster falls on the Local and State governments. What did they do? NOTHING!!!! It took Pres. Bush sending down the National Guard … to rescue the ones hanging onto their roofs. Thousands were allowed to gather in the Super Dome, where they proceeded to DESTROY THE PLACE!!! Firing guns from the upper decks into the crowds .. pooping on the seats!!

        What? You never heard of any of this? There’s nobody BLINDER than a person who refuses to see.

        Spike,

        So it is God’s fault.

        • Vicki

          Of course its God’s fault. If God had not given humans free will non of this would have happened.

    • Wlmitch1

      Great satire, S C! I was born in 1960 with some health issues. Bush’s fault? No way. He was 14 when I was born. I now have arthritis in my entire spine, hips, shoulders, and knees; PTSD (crime victim at a young age), history of recurrent inguinal hernias which needed surgery, Meniere’s Disease, migraines, chronic sinusitis, and mild tremor. I became disabled in April 2001, but continued to work until I was set up and terminated from my last job in February 2002. Bush’s fault? I DON’T THINK SO!

      It took me nearly four months after that to accept the fact that I HAD to go on Social Security Disability because I could no longer work. The local Democrat Bureaucrats in the SSA kept messing up my medical information and denying me for 5 years and 4 months, I think because they wanted to punish me for NOT quitting my job immediately, and applying for SSDI as soon as I became disabled; and they insinuated that it was all Bush’s fault. NONSENSE!

      Congresswoman Candice Miller, a REPUBLICAN, investigated this fiasco, an SSDI hearing was held 3 weeks later in September 2007, and I was finally approved. I received my first check in December 2007. During 2008, I received retro-pay dating back to March 2003 as ordered by the judge. I have been eligible to have my student loan discharged for 3 years now, but will continue to pay on it (MY choice) for as long as possible. Is all of this Bush’s fault? The radical Left would say yes, as if he waved some imaginary magic wand to make all of this happen to me! I say, RIDICULOUS! Stuff happens.

      I have little doubt that 50 years from now, the radical Left will still be blaming Bush, and possibly even Reagan, for whatever bad things happen then.

      • eddie47d

        Some Republicans and conservatives go back and blame Preident Johnson and that was 50 years ago. (some things were are are warranted).The same can be said about Bush-that’s history!

        • Wlmitch1

          In my last paragraph, I probably should have stated that the Left will blame Bush for any NEW bad things that happen then. The Republicans you are writing about are not blaming Johnson for what is happening now, they were merely stating that Congress began raiding the Social Security fund during the Johnson years, thus the raiding of the Social Security fund is nothing new. It is true that Bush bears some of the blame for the mess we are in today, because he kept caving in to many of the Left’s demands during his second term. From January 2007 on, BOTH Houses of Congress have been controlled by the Democrats. The point is that the Left blames Bush for EVERYTHING, and will continue to do so for a very long time.

        • http://aol wayne a

          EDDIE,how you figure? the democrats have been in charge of the house 53 out of the last 65yrs and the senate 56 out of the last 65yrs!!!!!!

      • Carole Howell

        Wlmitch,
        Be thankful for Social Security, brought to you by a Democrat, the Republicans were completely against it. Know your history, read your history.

        Social Security is by-the-way a socialist program. As this country embraces both Socialist and Capitalist systems at the same time.

        Now if we had socialized Health care programs none of us would have to worry about pre-existing conditions, or going bankrupt over health care bills.

        Right now I know of a 14 year old boy with metal rods in his back because of a spinal deformity and has out grown them and needs surgery to correct it again, he has no health care coverage, his father has disappeared and his mother has only just gotten back to work, lets hope it will not be considered a pre-existing condition when her health care goes into effect.

        We should not have to worry about such things.

        BTW, Social Security, medicaid and medicare, and the Veteran Administrations are very efficient programs, and even though there maybe faults and snags, what would people do without them.

          Carole, Va programs leave something to be desired, my Father was a vet WWII, I put his name in for a bed at the local Va Hospital, 6 months passed, they notfied me they had a bed for my Dad, two days AFTER he died!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            angel Wannabe,
            sorry about your Dad! Was it during Clintons terms, by any chance? Not that it matters, but I have heard of quite a few horror stories during his “rule”!!

          • Angel Wannabe

            JoeH, No it was seven years ago, Under Bush.__ Joe. I was sick about it at first. But as an after thought, The Good Lord may have done me a favor, when Dad died, before he got in the VA. __When I went for the interview, I found out, I would have had to turn my Fathers ENTIRE estate, over to the VA, they would’ve sold his assets to pay off, his bills. It was a messy situation back then, at the time, our daughter got mixed up into drugs( she’s clean now 6 years later and happily married) and I couldn’t bring my Father here to live with me, like I wanted,after they told me he wouldn;t be with us long. I didn’t want him involved in my problems. If ANYONE reading this, is contemplating the use of the VA, for Family, please make sure you get ALL the answers to your questions. And Do like I did, and take a hand held recorder and record your conversations. I do it on all important conversations!___Trust, but verify!!__Thanks Joe!

      • Robert Smith

        About that Democratic Congress…

          Those were all very good things to vote against. Millions have been spent on embryonic stem cell research and none of the cures are working out.

          Robert, All those statements sounds like Bush just wanted to veto everything and the way you stated them there would be no way to see it any other way.. BUT why didn’t you list ANY reason why he vetoed them? Could some of it been because of the cost? Could some of them been because of the riders that would have psssed into law too that were attached to them? Lets just say there would have been a bill that stated that EVERYONE would get a check for $5000 a month for the rest of there lives from the government but attached to that same bill was a rider that, if passed, would make it illegal for ANYONE to marry and would be put to death if you vilated it! First is how would it be paid for and second is NO married people or those wanting to get married would like it! So what would you do? Pass abill that everyone would have pleanty of money to live on? Or veto it to save millions of lives? Thats silly I know but so is your staements on all those bills Bush vetoed without saying why he did! And by the way, I’m writeing Bush today because it is raining and I had plans! How dare him to ruin my day!!!!!!

          • Carole Howell

            James G, show cause for the veto, the true causes or shut the hell up.

          worthless LIBERAL AGENDA crap that Obama wanted to PUSH THROUGH,
          WHILE they have control of Congress.

          After the Republicans get BACK control of the House and the Senate (and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are both GONE!!) … THEN we can get on with FIXING the ECONOMY and creating REAL CHANGE that will get this country back on track!!!

          Have you also forgotten that Obama has GROWN our National Debt by 300%, while he has been in office only 19 months!! ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS … and not just listening to Obama BLAMING BUSH!!?
          Do you not REALIZE that Obama has pushed UNEMPLOYMENT to DOUBLE what it was before he took office? Are you LOOKING? CAN YOU SEE!!??

          ROBERT,you failed to mention that everyone of those bills was full of pork spending.if it was just the bill itself and no add on’s,most of the bills would have been okay by both parties. hundreds of attachments are added to every bill introduced so alot of the no votes were, no to the attachments and pork,not the actual bill itself!

        • http://?? Joe H.

          robert,
          I’m not sure about ALL of those vetoes, but three stand out real well in my mind and there were good reasons for the veto. The troop funding bill? The dems had put in so much pork that they KNEW he would have to veto it! If he didn’t they would accuse him of over spending, and if he did they would say he had no concern for the troops. that is why the latter one passed, they had trimmed most of the pork off of it! The childrens health care bill? The progressive libbies wanted to include “children” up to the age of 26! I wasn’t a child at 18! Actually 17 as I was in the Army! By 24 I was just out of the service and had my own insurance! the stem cell research? He knew that 80% of the people were against it as being immoral. He actually acted in the will of the people that put him there in that case!! Actually, I guess that takes care of 5 of your list!!

      Very well put, Angel. I just wish every American would read Personal Liberties, then People would see what this idiot and his cronies are really doing. One thing I can’t honestly believe is how BO thinks by blaming Bush he can justify his total failure as a President. He must think Americans are gullible and that we will believe anything he says, right or wrong, and that Bush and the Republicans are an example of why this country failed. Erogance, stupidity, defiance against Americans, and just plain hate for what America stands for, is this guy and his followers intentions. Obama may be protected by a few small circles at this point and the main stream media overemphasises how many people really support him, but now most Americans have seen what he stands for and don’t believe anything he says or does. November will be a fight, it will be a fight against the Liberals and BO and the start of many to rid ourselves of this Socialistic dictator and his followers!

      • Angel Wannabe

      • Angel Wannabe

        Jamie, no actually the GOP work ethic is, to let Americans find they’re own way. To STOP being a Daddy to the women, who have four and five kids, and let the Government keep them, instead of the real Fathers Taking responsibility!!__GOP wants to STOP, the Democratic misuse of the poor, for votes and to stop keeping them stupid enough, so they won’t rise up above, and get off of their entitlement programs!__They want people need them!___The GOP realizes, as I do, that none of us EVER worked for poor men or women!___That there is the working class and the elite. If your tired of being labeled as the working class, then get off your azz, do the work, get the knowledge and then you can be an elite too! GET OVER THE CLASS ENVY!__The Majority of the GOP also believes in fighting for the right to life, they want to STOP the sensless murdering of innocent babies,using abortions as birth control. Why, because our so called intelligent women today, are too lazy to protect themselves during sex!!!__I can say that I’M A WOMAN!__-THATS WHAT THE GOP IS ABOUT!

    The reason Reagan didn’t blame Carter and Obama always blames Bush is because Reagan was the better man.
    Poor pathetic Obama. He is a typical liberal. If he doesn’t have any answers then blame Bush. We see it on this site all of the time. If a liberal doesn’t have anything of substance to say they blame someone else, call names and become garbage mouths.
    Obama campaigned for the job of President and has used this position to play play play and blame blame blame. I don’t think the man knows what the word work means. Unless its to push through his useless Marxist / Socialists agendas.Then he mixes a little work in with his play. He still doesn’t have to work very hard to pass these socialist agendas as he has Pelosi and Reed doing all of the heavy lifting.
    They are fussing that the Republicans are blocking their tax relief bill. Funny, the Republicans haven’t been able to block anything else so I doubt that it is only the Republicans that find this bill suspicious and the Dems are afraid to do anything else stupid right now since the publics voting time is fast approaching.

    • Jana

      Some information I found is very interesting:

      1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

      A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

      2. Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.

      3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

      Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barack-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-law-license/

      4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

      5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

      6. “He did not hold the title of professor of law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

      Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_obama_did_hold_the_title.html ;

      7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence . not the Constitution.

      8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-constitution-with-the-declaration-of-independence/

      9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal..

      10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

      We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

      11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

      When you are a phoney it’s hard to keep facts straight. The only ones that haven’t seen through this clown and the band of idiots that surrounds him are those that are fleecing this Country for all it’s worth. I hope and pray that common sense will prevail in the next election or this great Nation is finished!

      Now, these are the credentials of who wrote this:

      [Ed. note on the Ed. note: this is from a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler , TX ]

      [Ed. note: This is legit. I checked it out myself at https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.]

      Reagan did blame Carter. Then he blamed the Dems for the budget being 1 trillion dollars when he took office. Then he quickly doubled it. Then before he left office in 88 he had tripled it. I’ve been listening to the GOP blame Carter for 30 years now but Obama can’t point out the facts of what he inherited from Bush. So basically your saying only the GOP can complain about there predecessor? Seems like you want special rules just for your side. You know like the special rules the rich get now from Bush. What did his tax cuts do to help? Where or what group of people benefited? The top 1% is the only group of people who where better off when Bush left office than when he took it over.

      • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

        Which side is that? My side is The United States of America. Which side is your’s?

        Sorry to inform you of your error. The top tax rate was lowered from 39.6% to 35%. The lowest tax rate was lowered from 15% to 10%. the middle tax rate was lowered from 28% to 25%. It seems to me, that in terms of percentage decrease that the lower tax rates fared the best. What say you now?

      • ValDM

        I’ll tell you who has benefitted from the Bush tax breaks. Everyone of us has. I may mean that the top earners got more, but I still got my exemption for my mortgage (bet you did too). I didn’t pay taxes on my health insurance and other health costs (but we will). When these tax breaks of Bush’s expire, you’ll get a real nasty taste of what Odumbo has in store for all of us. Until you actually think about what Odumbo has as his next card trick, you need to sit down and shut up.

        I am so sick and tired of people like you saying that if you have a large sum of money you are trash! I don’t know how you were raised but me and many others have been told and tought as kids that if we WORK hard,as your reward for doing so,you will make alot of money! But now the rule is if you don’t work hard then those that do should give it to those that don’t and you should be ashamed of all your hard work! There is another saying that says it takes money to make money! WE all know that those with money are the ones who runs businesses that hire people! SO if you take more of the richest peoples money is there any dought that they WON”T have that money to make more money by hireing more people? ALSO these trashy rich people GIVES MILLIONS of dollars a year to charitys! So by paying more than whats fair will mean that they will not only HIRE LESS people but will also GIVE less to charitys! What gives the right for the government to take MORE of those peoples money that they from anybody elses? Bet you can’t name me one single government controled progarm that is makeing a PROFIT! I’m not by any way wealthy even though I have been working hard sence I was 13. I’m not wealthy because of bad money makeing ideas. And no I am not saying that wealthy people shouldn’t pay taxes. What I AM saying is that they should only pay there fare share and for people to quit acting like there is something wrong with haveing money. The ones that seems to have a problem with it are those who don’t know how to make money and those that are just too darn lazy to get off there butts and earn it! But lets go ahead andtax them unfarely and they WILL take there money and jobs with them when they leave our great nation and then we will see how good we have it without those trashy wealthy people!!!!!

        • Wlmitch1

          Karl Marx wrote in his Communist Manifesto that a progressive income tax and a complete Government takeover of a nation’s health care system are necessary to implement his Socialist “utopia.” The rich are “trash” because they are an obstacle to the Marxists’ insatiable lust for power. The rich do NOT pay their fair share – they pay more than DOUBLE their fair share. If ALL taxpayers paid 15%, of their income in Fedral income taxes, after standard deductions, the rich would be paying their fair share. Currently, 15% is the lowest tax bracket. If you do the math, a taxpayer whose taxable income is $10,000 would have a tax bill of $1,500, while a taxpayer whose taxable income is $10,000,000 would have a tax bill of $1,500,000, 1,000 times more than that of the taxpayer whose taxable income is $10,000. That is a MUCH better argument for a flat tax of 15% than, “the top 5% of income earners pay 95% of the Federal taxes,” which is merely a talking point based on a statistic. With some spending cuts, a flat 15% Federal Income tax, and the return of gold and silver coinage, just think of how THAT would stimulate the economy.

        I have heard that from the left many times. Reagan did end up with a deficit but it was in the billions after eight years even after cutting taxes.

Yes it is sad to know that even president Obama lies and people think it is normal. Instead of working together to rebuild America, he does the blame game on anyone that oppose his socialist agenda. The poor will always be among us, they have the right in this country to be poor and giving them money will not make them rich, just dependants. The government was to govern and the people should have control over their own money. But many do not see this and want someone else to provide for them. So ends the American way of life, slow fade…

      There is no evidence that BO is doing anything to improve the economy, create jobs, advance our nation in the eyes of other nations, nor protect the country from those who wish to do us harm. All we ever hear from BO and his swoonin fans is that he is doing good things for all people. Like what? Ruining a world leading health care system so we can be more like countries that currently send their diplomats and rich to the US for treatment?

    The president thinks he knows when to go into his ‘neighborhood’ manner of speaking…what was it Harry Reid said…he can slip into a negro dialect when necessary. His speech in Milwaukee was so UNpresidential it was disturbing!!!! I truly believe the man is losing his marbles. He canNOT connect two words without a teleprompter!!! And to think that speaking out in public – ‘they treat me like a dog’ – is going to win him respect…what a total jerk!

    The one thing he seems to forget is HE WON! He does NOT have to continue to campaign AGAINST THE REPUBLICANS!!!! After all, he IS the president of the United States…the president of Republicans as well as Democrats. How he ever expects to EARN RESPECT from half the country that didn’t vote for him by pulling these stunts is beyond me! Perhaps the real message we should take from all of his actions and words is that he has never had to EARN a thing in his life…it’s been handed to him at every turn. A college graduate would NOT utter the word CORPSE MAN three times in a public speech. A college graduate would not continually massacre the English language by using an a before a word beginning with a vowel – he does this so often I have stopped cringing when I hear him.

    Mr. President – if you want RESPECT, you have to earn it, sir. And constantly dissing half the population of America is not exactly accomplishing that task for you. RESPECT is a two-way street – you also have to treat with RESPECT those you disagree with.

      I was trying to think of the way to describe the way the dolt speaks, your quote; “The president thinks he knows when to go into his ‘neighborhood’ manner of speaking” sums it up perfectly Cape.

      He sounds sophomoric, almost juvenile, I haven’t heard that manner of speaking since Junior High School.

      Certain words really set me off, the way he says “folks” and “country.” The usurper is nothing better than a “quick change” con.

      Can we please send the boy home and get a man in the White house?!

      • Angel Wannabe

        Cribster, We have a friend who voted for Bambi, she keeps saying what an eloquent speaker Bambi is!__To that I said “if only his policies we’re as good as his mouth!”___She was NOT AMUSED!__lol

      • Jana

        …and he tries to use his idea of jokes to enhance his speeches, but the joke is always at someone elses ( Bush or the Republicans) expense. He doesn’t even realize the joke is HIM.

        He doesn’t even claim to be Pres. of all of the people. He is not Pres. for Arizona, he is not the Pres. for Republicans, he is not President for most of the United States as he appologized for the United States. Yep, he is a big joke, but he is a BAD JOKE.

        • Angel Wannabe

          jANA, So true!__I cannot for the life of me believe that this man or child whatever ya wanna call him, has agreed to sue one of our own States over securing the borders!_-IT IS JUST UNFATHOMABLE TO ME, In my book he’s nothing but a traitor!

          • Carole Howell

            Well about him being against Arizona securing its borders to Mexico, He cannot stand up to big business who wants all that cheap labor, Hello, folks, you do not have a clue who runs this country do you?

    • Brad

      Cape Conservative,

      Great message, I don’t agree with Obama and his continual refrence to the Bush administrations woe’s because there were good decisions but on the flip side there were bad decisions, that I do agree upon. We all know Reagan didn’t blame Carter, he lead this country, Bush I didn’t blame Reagan, he lead this country, as far as I know Clinton didn’t blame Bush I, he lead this country. When Bush II was elected he didn’t blame Clinton, he lead this country, now we have Obama, he’s been in control for 22 months and he’s been blaming Bush II at every single major event he’s speaking at. My question is, when is Obama going to step up to the plate and accept what was handed to him and lead this country instead of dividing us and spending us to the poor house?

      Yes, America is pissed and justly so, we have been forced to endure HCR, FRA, real unemployment of 15% plus, staggering budget deficits, a tax system broken and getting worse. Just think about this for a moment, Obama’s first act as president, he signed an executive order sealing ALL presidential records, yes that included his, so my next question is, what is he trying to hide, he was suppose to have the most transparent administration in the history of the US. We all now what happened, politics got in the way and he didn’t need prying eye’s ruining his day.

      • Carole Howell

        Down the memory hole eh, Reagan did blame Carter, you do not remember? And Bush blamed Clinton for 9/11, have you forgotten?

    • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

      Voted Obama? Embarased Yet?

      • Carole Howell

        Conservative at Birth,

        I am not embarrassed, what I am is disappointed. But I have had my eyes opened now. The President has very little power.

        I am learning right and left now just who runs this country, our last real president was assassinated and every one we have had since is little more than a figure head or puppet.

        It matters very little which party runs things the people’s business gets pushed aside for big business and special interests (like the Israel lobby and I just found out Saudi Arabia has a lot of power here also, wonder what other foreign nation our congress and president answer to)

        I know all republicans are not as thick headed as the ones here, cause I know many who do not follow like sheep and do think for themselves, they know the GOP has changed, and they know our politicians are bought and paid for and that we are in big trouble because of it.

        But so many people here are just plain brainwashed if not straight up NeoCons.

        • eddie47d

          So true Carole

        • Angel Wannabe

          So true Carole, OBAMA DOESN’T HAVE MUCH POWER, its your damned Liberal Congress thats been in there, two years BEFORE BUSH LEFT OFFICE, SO QUITE FRANKLY BUSH DIDN’T HAVE THE POWER EITHER, NOW DID HE?_)__THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST SAID!!!!!!!

    • anna

      I believe there are two possible reasons that he is making so many errors.
      1. He is a community organizer and it has always worked for him, he does not know how to communicate other than replaying sound bites that will make the people clap and cheer, he cannot stand to be critized. He also seems to try to be funny,way to often, why would a President of the United States of America want this? Because he has an ego and does not have the experience and intergrity we would hope to have in this office.
      2. He is doing this on purpose to cause a separation among us I am not paranoid, just trying to make sense of his actions.

      • Carole Howell

        Anna,
        Or perhaps he follows orders just as Bush did. eh? These same people who run things here also have threatened and assassinated the leaders of other foreign nations (read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins, an easy enlightening read)How do we know they do not threaten our own Presidents to get their way?

        This could be another reason you could add to your list Anna.

  • Elizabeth

    Subject: That Darn George Bush!!….

    Here’s an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes “Greener Pastures” for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel…one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a life long Democrat…so this is rather a stunning piece…

    Obama is victim of Bush’s failed promises
    Greener Pastures Column — 5/ 15/10

    Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first year in office.
    Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever.

    Wow! Talk about change.

    Just one year ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation’s most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America ‘s first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

    Of course, they don’t see it as self-imposed. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

    George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies the White House, is to blame for it all.

    He broke Obama’s promise to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

    He broke Obama’s promise to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

    He broke Obama’s promise to end earmarks.

    He broke Obama’s promise to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

    He broke Obama’s promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

    He broke Obama’s promise to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America ‘s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

    He broke Obama’s promise to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

    He broke Obama’s promise to end no-compete contracts with the government.

    He broke Obama’s promise to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

    He broke Obama’s promise for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

    He broke Obama’s promise to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter of last year.

    Yes, it’s all George Bush’s fault. President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.

    If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, all of President Obama’s problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

    Oh, and did I mention what it would be like if the Democrats, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn’t have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying (Nebraska, Louisiana).

    If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, we’d have real change by now.

    All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama’s fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

    Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president’s attorney general, to hold terrorists’ trials in New York City . Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

    Two disastrous decisions.

    Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush.

    Need more proof?

    You might recall that when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts , capturing “the Ted Kennedy seat”, President Obama said that Brown’s victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.

    Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts was George Bush’s fault.

    Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George Bush’s fault.

    Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and change ever arrive?

    Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something… – anything?

      THIS is the real Chuck Green article….I don’t understand why Elizabeth would choose to cherry-pick it the way she did.

      Green: Obama’s policies erode his popularity
      By CHUCK GREEN
      Columnist
      Published: Thursday, May 27, 2010 9:03 AM MDT
      **
      “Most Americans have come to believe that the political system is broken, that most politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers.”
      **
      That is the declaration by Scott Rasmussen, one of the most credible pollsters in the country.
      **
      His conclusion came with the latest daily tracking poll of President Barack Obama’s approval rating, which hit an all-time low this week.
      **
      It was no coincidence that confidence in the political system and the president’s disapproval rating were in sync. Obama campaigned in 2008 on a platform of political reform — to clean up corruption, to end favoritism in the form of ear-marked legislation, to provide “transparency” in government, to restore the public’s confidence in government.
      **
      He’s done just the opposite, and the American public is getting wise to his deception.
      **
      He’s not the first.
      **
      In the most recent decades, presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have left the same legacy of promises, deception and broken promises.
      **
      And that has led us to where we are today: “Most Americans have come to believe that the political system is broken, that most politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers.”
      **
      For Obama supporters, the most difficult part of that statement is that he was supposed to change things. Remember that word? Change.
      **
      If there has been any change, it’s been for the worse. Transparency has become obliteration. Promises to end earmark legislation have been forgotten. Corruption has become more, not less, apparent. Public confidence in government has corroded, not fortified.
      **
      Clinton lied to us when he said he “did not have sex with that woman,” completely wasting an enormous pile of political capital. He had all the potential of becoming the next John Kennedy, but he squandered the opportunity.
      **
      Bush betrayed his conservative image, setting the country on a course of economic destruction. Starting out with the terrible inheritance of the Sept. 11 attacks, he turned his popular bull-horn talk at Ground Zero into a disastrous presidency, from his spending policies to the mismanagement of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
      **
      Obama is becoming the third member of the trinity. He was elected on the precepts of hope and change. He has dashed hope for anything better, and he has changed things for the worse.
      **
      For the past year, measured by a composite of all pollsters, his policies have been a disaster. From health-care reform to transparency, his administration has been a great disappointment to the American people.
      **
      Yet his personal popularity has been relatively high.
      **
      As promised, change is happening.
      **
      Obama himself is losing his personal magnetism. His policies and his actions finally are eroding his powerful personal image.
      **
      People are starting to connect the man with the priorities, the man with the decisions, the man with the values.
      **
      And there is a serious disconnect that even many of his supporters cannot reconcile.
      **
      It’s been more than a year since the president — under great political pressure — publicly abandoned the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright and pledged to find a new church for his family. He hasn’t.
      **
      It’s been more than a year since the president promised to end all earmark legislation. He hasn’t.
      **
      It’s been more than a year since the president promised to put all legislation on the Internet for at least five days before signing it into law. He hasn’t.
      **
      It’s been more than a year since the president promised to offer comprehensive immigration reform. He hasn’t.
      **
      It’s been nearly a year since the president — the champion of transparency in government — has hosted an open-ended press conference (an event requiring he interrupt his addiction to the Tele-Prompter).
      **
      And now the polls show that his personal popularity is dropping parallel with the disapproval of his administration’s policies.
      **
      He has enjoyed the longest honeymoon in modern American politics, but the public is nearing the point of filing divorce papers. Evidence is mounting that the filing date could occur on Nov. 2, coinciding with the 2010 mid-term election day.

      • Carole Howell

        Thank you Greg, for posting the real Chuck Green’s article. I like the article and I agree with all it says and I voted for Obama, I do not regret my vote, cause I know a vote for McCain would have brought nothing better and maybe worse.

        As for transparency in Government, why he promised such a thing knowing Big Business would not allow the people that much info into their affairs in running this country. They have to keep up this ‘right/left, Dem/Rep picture to be able to pull off their deals. I do not know, maybe he was deluded. Maybe he did not really know the Pres has no real power to change much. Maybe he knew he was misleading and that he could never pull this off.

        And why may I ask would a person try to pass off something else in place of the real article and do they realize that was a lie and that lies are ‘unchristianlike behavior? LOL

        Whatever, what Chuck Green neglected? Or was afraid to print? was, who really has the power, who really pulls the strings in the Government supposed to be by the people, of the people and for the people.

        • Vicki

          I notice you have this thing about big business. Do you truly fail to understand that big business has absolutely no power over you (or the government) that you do not allow? Stop buying their products and big business folds like a house of cards.

          Something else of interest. It is not big business that is coming to my house and pointing a gun to my head and demanding that I buy health insurance.

          Though with the proper twist of logic you could say that big business forced all those nice ballless congresspeople to vote for that law.

And the Consumers have pulled up reigns and stopped buying what they don’t need!! And the Liberals are directly responcible for striking fear in the peoples wallets, with threatening more taxes, more regulation and gut wrenching spending!__A recession is brought on by fear!!

            Vicki,
            I think she is bitter about two things. She was laid off and having trouble making ends meet. I don’t blame her for being bitter, but she should be bitter at the one that let her down. Nobama promised her to bring on the jobs and fix the economy. She is bitter about that because she fell for his line hook line and sinker!!
            Two, she is bitter that the courts decided against her hero by saying that big business could donate to politicians!

  • ciniowa

    Respect?…I probably could count on one hand the number of conservatives that have given this President any respect. You all need to quit watching Fox (faux) News and watch the real “fair and balanced” news source such as c-span..or CNN.

    • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan Halbert

      If liberals wanted conservatives to “respect” the next president, they should have lightened up on the Bush bashing during the previous eight years. That has changed public discourse forever. You reap what you sow.

      • Craig

        Come now, it is going to take more than stop Bush bashing for liberals to earn right thinking peoples respect. Maybe when the liberals grow a brain, stop trying to screw America by turning it into a socialist state. Things like that might earn them a grain of sand of respect.

          “druggie” or not, at least he speaks the truth and he does have the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States so I guess I’m not the ONLY one that listens, hmmmm? As they say I guess the truth hurts, huh? Speaking of truths why can’t we get ANY truths out of this guy.. EVER? If he can’t release his “records” to the public which, should be simple enough, how can I trust him with anything else? I am floored that this guy still has “followers”… what’s the guy have to do (or not do in his case) for you “followers” to WAKE UP! I guess it’s all in the Kool-Aid??

            Lin the next time you get a chance to talk to Limbo see if he’s still mad about helping Obama get elected. Without Limbo’s help during the primares Obama wouldn’t have ever got elected. I think he hates Obama so much because he feels guilty. No one listens to talk radio except haters and blamers. Never heard Limbo say anything about Bushes excesive spending. Bushes vacations? Bushes failures from 9/11? If he looked at that Presidency with the same eyes he looks at this one he’d be more credible. He’s just an entertainer trying to make money off of hate. And your enabling him.

          • Greg

            Rush Limbaugh lies so loudly and with such conviction that the susceptible believe him. I wonder if he believes his own lies? I don’t think he does because he’s too shrewd for that.
            **
            Now Glen Beck…he might believe his own lies and actually seems to be a pathological liar. He is someone to watch because when the meltdown comes it’s going to be ugly. It won’t be simple drug addiction like Rush…probably a nervous breakdown or worse.

          • Robert Smith

            Spoken like a true dittohead. If Rush wants you to have an opinion he’ll sure give it to you.

            Let’s look at one of his outright lies…

            Rush said on Jun 9,2004 about AIDS spreading into the heterosexual community: >>>”And they used that as — as one of the weapons to try to get people like Reagan to start talking about it from their standpoint. And of course it — it hasn’t. It — it didn’t, and it hasn’t, other than in Africa, and in Africa it is — it is being spread not just by — it — it — it’s promiscuity that — that — that spreads this, if you want to know the truth. It’s promiscuity.
            But it — it hasn’t made that jump to the heterosexual community.”

            In fact the spread of AIDS had made the “jump” to the heterosexual community in America.

            It’s fun pointing these things out whenever someone wants to us Rush as a “source.” His lies are well documented.

    Jim, if you want off the list there’s a link right under the white box you just typed in (ya know, AFTER you put your name and EMAIL address in to post such a moronic response) that says UNSUBSCRIBE. See that’s what’s wrong with you liberals…none of you can think for yourselves.

    Additionally…uh, during the ‘previous administration’ didn’t we have a Democratic congress for a number of those years…?

    • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

      Actually the Republicans have never had a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, which is why they had to compromise with the Democrats and suset the tax increases. It is also why they could never get modifications to semi-privatize social security which I have proposed since 1964.

  • THINK ABOUT

    Perhaps if Bush had recognized and admitted his mistakes along with the folks who always protected him, then perhaps he could have and would have changed his policies. So now, it is Obama’s fault about the response to Katrina along with all the other whinings. In the oil industry, they know better methods and shortcuts in their operation. I am sure when the smoke clears on the BP oil spill, the conclusion will be money was not saved by the short cuts. Should they have to have regulations, should not have to but then when the train jumps the track then someone else gets blamed. What is the difference in anyone blaming Bush or Obama for everything that goes wrong, neither solves the problem. I see comments made which are not correct but bet those folks will not admit their beliefs are incorrect so they continue to tell the same untruths.

    How many presidental families have been more kind to their political enemies than the Bush family? To me, this shows the Bush family to be one of class, for which time and many people, along with myself, will come to their aid.

    It is true that President Obama inherited a big mess! Bush almost destroyed this country and it will take many years to undue what Bush and his crew managed to ruin. Bush should be labeled a criminal.

    • Strawberry Shortcake

      So Beth, let me get this straight YOU think that Obama doing things like his latest idea of taking MORE money to try to “help” the economy and then turning around to pay for it out of a gas tax that will affect everyone negatively is going to help fix everything? You don’t think that pushing through huge bills that NO ONE has read DESPITE the overwhelming amount of outrage against them (WE the PEOPLES outrage) is non-criminal? How about the bills that have things stuffed quietly in the middle of them, like no more private school loans, without anyone’s knowledge, most particularly WE the PEOPLE, is that not treasonous? Get over Bush. There’s one master and they all serve it.

      No matter what happens in November, it’s a band-aid at best. As long as there is a public school system this will all happen again and again, until they are successful. It’s called brainwashing and isn’t just universities…it is alive and well in our kindergarten rooms, second grade rooms, seventh grade classrooms…

      • Greg

        Honestly, are you so brainwashed that you believe that NO ONE has read any of the bills that have been passed in Congress? That is a line straight from the mouths of the likes of Limbaugh, Beck, and Palin.
        ***
        Think for yourself.

        • Strawberry Shortcake

          I’m sorry Greg…did I say that I thought “no one” reads the bills? Is that seriously the best comeback you have? Man, at least challenge me a little.

          • Strawberry Shortcake

            …and btw, I think John Conyers said it best, don’t you? I mean, I know he’s no Limbaugh, Beck or Palin. He’s just a Democratic congressman. But hey, I’ll post it anyway:

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gW7mOaPnYYA

            And Greg, I am not a right or left. I didn’t like Clinton, either of the Bushs, or the fools in office now. I like the Constitution and the people that uphold it. I like free-thinkers and the freedom to be as successful or unsuccessful as I deem fit for MY life. I like a small, non-intrusive government. I like honesty.

          • Brad

            Strawberry Shortcake,

            Just goes to prove the left wanted this without serious debate or maybe they just fundamentally forgot how to read. My opinion is they were sold a bill of goods by their leadership and they fell in line like good little sheeple.

          • T from Iowa

            Why don’t we just start with Pelosi who admitted, “We have to vote for this bill to find out what is in it.”

            Maybe I am mistaken but she admits here that she did not read it herself.

            Does it make sense to anyone that no congressman took credit for authoring the healthcare bill? Then who wrote it? Bill Ayres? Jeff Jones? Bernadine Dorn? Makes you wonder.

          • Jeep

    • Strawberry Shortcake

      P.S. Beth and all you fools that think Obama inherited a “big mess”

      Two years prior to the traitor taking office:

      110th Congress (2007-2009)

      Majority Party: Democrat (49 seats)

      Minority Party: Republican (49 seats)

      Other Parties: 1Independent; 1 Independent Democrat

      Total Seats: 100

      I’m no fan of most Republicans, they are merely the other hand on the same body, but hell, let’s face it, they have always had a track record of being a little bit more fiscally responsible then the Dems.

        Hey Kenny why would anyone feel safe when Bush was in office?? He, Bush , was the President when 9/11 happened. If he could keep us safe that wouldn’t have happened. Then he just kept sounding the alarm over and over with terror alerts. False terror alerts. Then he created a reason to go to war with Iraq. He said GOD told him to do it. Not my GOD. Sounds more like advise from Alluh to drag America down.

        • CJ

          To Jamie,

          “He, Bush , was the President when 9/11 happened. If he could keep us safe that wouldn’t have happened.”

          Are you serious?!!!! I had to read your post twice trying to ascertain if you were being sarcastic. If you’re not serious, I apologize, but if you are…well, blaming Bush for 9/11 is stupid beyond belief. I hate to get into the blame game – because it is generally a waste of energy, but sometimes one must stoop to explain things to those who don’t “get it” (usually to children, idiots and liberals. Ah, but I repeat myself). There are many who say that Clinton’s lackluster performance on defense and intelligence issues helped contribute to the rise of bin Laden, but I remember reading articles about the threat he posed as far back as the early 80′s so he was a problem even before Clinton, and long before Bush. Who is responsible? I don’t know, but to hold Bush or anyone person responsible for 9/11 is ridiculous.

          Bush wasn’t perfect, but I don’t doubt his love for this country and I believe he did his best to protect us, especially after 9/11 (Patriot Act notwithinstanding). In contrast, Obama (and his wife), have proven through their own words and deeds that they don’t love our respect our country: past, present or future. If our Commander and Chief isn’t proud of his country, what kind of message does that send the rest of world? I also believe his obvious weakness encourages despots, who, like hungry vultures, start to circle when they detect signs of poor health. We need to shake off the stench that is Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others like them and voting is the only way we can do it.

          In closing, the reason why intelligent people despise Obama is because we have long recognized that he doesn’t have a single quality – NOT A ONE – that makes him worthy of leading this great nation. Sadly, he can only lead us to ruin through his ignorance and arrogance, the two things of which he has a surfeit.

          • Lewis Munn

            Don’t be so down on him. He cannot help it!

            And he is probably not as bad as Chester Arthur, who recently had his REAL Birth certificate located in Canada, and it was proven he was an illegal non-citizen President. Explains why he cared so little for the country and was such a bad President.

            But my Congressman has seen Obama’s birth paper, and swears it is all kosher, so being a non-citizen cannot be why he is such a bad President.

            Gotta look somewhere else. Was he ever dropped on his head? Or roughed up as the only believing practicing Christian in an Indonesian Moslem school system?

    • Craig

      Obama did not inherit jack. His finger prints are all over the mess. When he was a so-called Senator he went along with Bush 80% of the time. Yup that is right he voted for all those things that he says bush caused.

  • Ann

    Bush puppets in control for 8 years. I think it would be more appropriate to blame Cheney. I think that President Obama will be the best president ever. Instead of criticizing him, come up with a list of comparisons.

    Start with how the republicans STOLE the elections in Florida with lies; to how Americans being spied on by its own government; accelerated, especially during the bush administration. Mention the “illegal” war. Why were we in Iraq in the first place, because, I quote, “Sadam Husein tried to kill my father”. As a result, is why thousands of Americans were killed? Then Bush should have gone over there himself and settled the score. Europeans thought Americans were hypocrites, because we re-elected Bush. I learned my lesson. Every time you criticize a presidents who did INDEED inherit a mess, a pig sty, I’m suspect about the writer’s motives.

    • THINK ABOUT

      As a popular statement by Dr Phil, “You can’t change what you do not acknowledge” could apply to everyone. The same people who are whining about blaming Bush are the ones blaming Obama. Have you ever read, heard or thought problems was Republician, Liberal, Libertian, or Tea Party? It is always the blame game.

          • Claire

            Bush took his share of vacations too. So they both are guilty of this as far as I am concerned. On another note, I did not approve of Michelle going to Spain. Since she wanted to go, she should have paid for everything and for her staff, out of her own pocket. I would like to go on a super duper vacation but it costs too much, besides I have too many dogs. It would cost me a fortune to board them. I wouldn’t leave them anyway, just being silly.
            Also, new furniture in the White House? What was wrong with the “old” stuff? With today’s economy it is kinda foolish don’t you think? If we have to tighten our belts, then they should do the same. I apply this sentence to all politicians. I have lived through hard times but I don’t think I necessarily like stuff thrown in my face.

            Nothing needs to be done about Wall Street. Let them play games with paper. Keeps them off the streets.

            “Big Pharma?”

            Get out of their way so they can discover drugs that people want to buy.
            If people don’t like the price then don’t pay it.

            “Financial Reform?”

            Lower taxes so business can get going again. Thats reform you can believe in.

            “Oil Disasters?”

            Happen. The people trying to harvest the oil have a lot to loose when it gets away. That is their harvest they lost. Lots of wealth got away.

            “Mindless wars?”

            Don’t happen. A lot of thought goes into any war.

            “Credit gouging?”

            Does not exist. No one but government has ever forced you to buy something and that only recently.

            “Infrastructure failures?”

            When they happen you repair them.

            “Outsourcing?”

            What do you need done?

            “Gas mileage?”

            Is a term for efficiency not a problem..

            “Bank scams?

            Fraud is already illegal.

            “Alternative Energy?”

            Is a term for energy derived from sources other than oil. Been using it since the early 19′s (Yes water power was used by the greeks 2000 years ago. Oh and don’t forget the famous windmills of Holland.) Alternative energy is a definition not a problem.

            “Campaign reform?”

            Vote libertarian.

            “Environmental damages”

            Clean them up.

            “Who’s always against Reform of anything?”

            Socialists?

            “Who’s against Corporate responsibility when they screw up?”

            Apparently Democrats and Rinos judging by the several big bailouts voted for by a Democrat Congress EVERY time and both a Democrat President and a RINO President.

      I think this is the 4th time I have had to repeat this, Ann. I won’t do it anymore. Read all the comments and you will see where I said, remember, the Democrats have been in control of Congress since 2006. Gosh, I am getting tired of repeating this. Read all the comments before you start blaming some one, please. The president needs the approval of Congress to be able to do most anything, with the exception of Obama, of course. It seems he skirts around Congress by hiring Czars, like Communist Van Jones, and other Socialist. Keep sticking up for him and we will know how to peg you. Obama knows that he could never get his kind of people through Congress if Congress would just do their job, and vet the people that Obama is picking as his special Czars. We don’t need a dictator, we need a president that goes along with the Constitution and the laws already in place.

      • truesoy

        wayne;

        For your information ‘czars’ was the name given to cabinet members under Bush, and there were more then that there are now. Also, under the the Bush administration, government’s bureaucracy and inefficiency was answered with more government, hence, the creation of Homeland Security Dept. So much for conservatism’s ‘small’ government filosophy. There lies their problem, they don’t live by what they preach, and this is tru on moral issues, too.

Social security is unconstitutional, it is yet another social entitlement. Let the people keep the money they earn and save it, invest it, or spend it as they wish. It is not the government’s job to “spread the wealth.” And on a side note, do your research, social security was emptied long before Bush.

        Go to the CBO web site and look up BG budgit deficit numbers, they were going down even with his war spending. His last two budgits went through the roof with defecit spending, why, because congress was controlled by the democ “Rats”. Sitting presidents forward there administrations budgit recommendations to congress who in turn acept or reject the budgit and for the last two years of the Bush administration the Rats have spent more money than a drunkin sailor. Put blame were blame needs to be and check out the CBO website, its an eye opener.

        • Jeep

          Please, Brad, stop confusing Greg with reality. When Greg looks at his lib talking points page, the real CBO numbers aren’t there.

            You are so right. All I can see with my “Democrat eyes” is free Government cheese, a recliner, a coupon for an abortion…and wait…your driver’s license! Oh, it must be your wallet I am digging through (you know because I am a lazy Democrat).

            Eddie47d,

            Look eddie47d I’m pointing my finger at —–> Obama and his administration to include all the Rats in congress, congress has been rat contolled for almost 4 year’s, look where we are at right now, today, broke and in debt up to our eyeballs. You and the left want to drown the rest of us for what reason because we don’t “feel” the same way you do, use your brain sometime soon, research the hard facts, we might have some time to repair all the damage done by both party’s.

    Your research on Reagan is faulty. Reagan blamed Carter over and over again. How many months was it before employment started to improve after Reagan’s tax cuts?

    • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

      How many years did it take to get the tax cuts? Do you know? I doubt it. Congress was in control of making the laws not the President. Who controlled both houses of Congress? Do You know? I doubt it.

  • HFlashman

    Sigh…trying to deflect the current situation onto Pres. Obama seems to be a favorite these days.

    Forget the AIG giveaway (we will never see that money again), forget the sweetheart deals the Bush controlled SEC gave Wall Street, forget TARP I, forget the 2009 budget with trillion dollar deficits was Bush, forget that in eight years, Bush created less than 50,000 jobs overall, forget the unfunded mandates and federal government over reach into our privacy and freddoms, forget two wars, the waste of a surplus so the wealthy get wealthier while the Middle Class loses ground, forget the “lead by fear’ policy, forget the ignoring of our manufacuring, our education, our technical exprtise, forget selling out to China or the holding of the Saudi hands (andthe kiss)…it’s not Bush’s fault…Pres. Obama has had 18 months to turn the worst economic and foreign position we have had since the Great Depression…gee, what’s wrong with him?

    Let’s see…

    He saved this Nation from another Great Depression
    He insituted TARP II which we will make money from
    He saved untold tens of thusand of jobs and our auto industry …again, which we will make money on
    He has restored America’s mantle of leadership in the world
    He got us out of Iraq and taken the fight where it should have been..to those that attacked us on 9/11..the Taliban and al Qaeda
    He has begun restoring the Middle Class and giving us an even break
    Overhauled our financial system (with great opposition from the GOP who didn’t want reform)
    He gave us tax breaks

    And he has created a recovery which is by most accounts outstripping recoveries of the past.

    PRIVATE sector job growth is averaging 100,000 this year. Overall job growth has shrunk…because government jobs are being cut. Yes…fact is fact. Obama is SHRINKING government jobs while the private sector is adding them !

    He proposes tax breaks for small business and inovative growth sectors….opposed by the GOP who want only to give the wealthy more of our money

    Manufacturing expanded last month at a quicker rate than forecast

    More U.S. stocks are paying dividends that exceed bond yields than any time in at least 15 years as profits rise at the fastest pace in two decades. [The last time the number of S&P 500 companies paying dividends above the corporate bond rate approached the current level was in March 2003, data compiled by Bloomberg show. That was just after the start of a bull market in which the equity index more than doubled over five years]

    S&P 500 companies’ cash has grown to a record for a seventh straight quarter. Cash represents over 10% of total assets now…compared to a tepid and declingin 7.95 in 2008.

    The technical data is strong, jobs are coming back. The last recession…even with the stimulus package Bush ut in…it took 21 months from the end of the recovery to show any job growth…not just job growth to make up for the job losses…job growth period.

    Yet….no credit to Pres. Obama. Nope…just whine and moan and refuse to help America from the Right (most on this board may take offense as they realize I talk of them). Not once…not one time..has th GOP done anything this past 18 months but say ‘no’ and complain the fatcats aren’t getting fatter at our expense.

    All the TPers and the Right want to do is whine, moan, cower in fear and hate. And want someone else to bail their sorry as* out.

      You forgot to mention how thre half-breed and the Dems stole the senior citizians COLA. In case you don’t know what COLA is that cost of living allowance. For 2009 and 2010. and they will most likely steal it again in 2011 and 2012.

          Greg, why shouldn’t they get it. They have paid into it all their working lives. Would you want to deprive folks who are now unable to work of something they have earned? Come on, Greg, you really don’t meant this.

          Greg,

          Man you are not right, social security is constitutional read this http://www.ssa.gov/history/court.html For any person who’s on SS, SSD, and other forms of SS have been entitled to a COLA, Cost Of Living Adjustments in accordance with current law. Now, all federal retirees and elderly on SS receive money’s from the government, when CPI Consummer Price Index is up every federal/SS recipient gets there COLA increase, when the CPI is down no one gets a COLA increase.

          I’m retired Navy, my retainer check and COLA increases are dermined by the CPI, I did not see a COLA raise this year and won’t see one next year. The gentalman who posted above may even be correct, we may not see our next raise until 2013 or 2014.

            Five goals from the tea parties
            Leaders want to repeal health care, cut federal programs.
            **
            What happens if the tea parties win in November?
            **
            If candidates sympathetic to the movement gain power, the activists will have influence inside the halls of the Capitol for the first time. We asked tea-party leaders what they plan to do once they can put down the protest signs and participate in lawmaking.
            **
            Unsurprisingly, different groups within the movement had different ideas of what should happen next.
            **
            Some in the intentionally leaderless movement want to focus on social issues like immigration, others on fiscal concerns like tax credits. Another faction wants to avoid policy altogether and remain focused on election campaigns.
            **
            But they appear to share at least five common goals for the next year:
            **
            1) Repeal the health-care law. Opposition to the Democrats’ health overhaul continues to bind the movement. Activists are working on state-level initiatives to undo the health-care mandate, and they fully expect conservative lawmakers to try the same at the federal level next year.
            **
            “Those that won’t support the overturn of health care are going to be targeted in 2012,” said William Temple, a Georgia tea partyer known for dressing up in Founding Fathers costumes at rallies.
            **
            2) Cut entitlement programs. Many activists believe the way to downsize the federal government is to cut back on social security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Even those tea partyers who benefit from such programs could get behind it, Seattle-based activist Keli Carender said.
            **
            “We’re going to have to have a real conversation, and an uncomfortable one. We have to sacrifice,” she said.
            **
            3) Hold the newly elected accountable. After spending months helping tea-party supporters get elected, tea-party activists know they will have to keep a watchful eye on Congress to make sure their investments pay off.
            **
            “The real work begins on November 3,” Greg Holloway of the Austin Tea Party Patriots said. “We need to make sure that people in all areas of government, federal especially, vote along the principles that they will be elected upon.”
            **
            If they don’t, tea partyers plan to fall back on tried-and-true protest tactics against the lawmakers.
            **
            4) Focus on local races. Not everyone wants to focus on policy. Some tea partyers believe their movement should be an electoral one, focused on infiltrating government at all levels so that conservatives gain long-term power.
            **
            “It’s time to put down the protest sign and pick up the campaign sign,” said Mark Williams, the controversial tea partyer who recently became president of a third party, Conservative Party U.S.A.
            **
            5) Pick a presidential candidate. Tea parties clashed in some Congressional districts over which candidate to support in midterm elections. They can’t afford to disagree when it comes to the 2012 presidential race, Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation said.
            **
            “A lot of groups are realizing that we don’t have to like each other and we don’t have to get along, but we do have common goals and we need to find a strategy or we’ll be screwed,” he said.

            Joe Miller: No Social Security For Future Generations
            09- 2-10 03:14 PM | Updated: 09- 2-10 03:31 PM
            **
            Alaska Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller repeated his view Wednesday that the United States needs to fundamentally rethink Social Security.
            **
            “Longer term, there has got to be a move outside of that system,” Miller told CNN’s John King. “Ultimately we want to transfer the power back to the states so that states can take up the mantle of those programs if they so desire.”
            **
            Miller previously said that the U.S. should “transition out of the Social Security arrangement.”
            **
            King, noting that Miller’s position is something Democrats have pounced on, asked Miller to make himself perfectly clear — that he wouldn’t take away Social Security checks from the people who currently count on them, but that he’d like to do away with the program for future generations. King asked: “Would [a person born the day Miller was sworn in] perhaps grow up in an America where there is not a federal Social Security program if you got your way?”
            **
            “Absolutely,” Miller said.
            **
            Miller, who upset incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska’s Republican primary this week, previously suggested that unemployment insurance, part of the Social Security Act of 1935, is unconstitutional. “The Supreme Court has already ruled on the Social Security Act. There was a case in 1937,” said Nancy Altman, author of a book on Social Security. “Joe Miller’s in a time machine.”
            **
            When it comes to old-age insurance Miller focuses on Social Security’s solvency: “I think most Americans recognize that that system is broken and they understand that there has got to be a change longer term to bring back some fiscal sanity and to ensure that you can actually have something when you do retire rather than depend on these IOUs that when we go insolvent aren’t going to be worth much.”

    • Greg

      Great points…I wonder how long it will take the new, freshly scrubbed (long hoped for) TEA Party Senators and Representatives will take to realize that what they fervently promised to undo…their followers won’t let them undo.
      ***
      You asked what’s wrong with Obama…frankly, he’s young, Harvard educated (where he taught Constitutional Law), he’s a Democrat, he’s got a foreign sounding name, he’s from Chicago, he’s really different and therefore scary…I could go on. He also still has 50% support for his policies even though many people are not happy with him because he’s not Liberal enough.

      • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

        Obama never taught Constitutional Law at Harvard!!!!!!! You are either totally ignorant or you are brainwashed. Which is it?

        • Greg

          Q:
          Was Barack Obama really a constitutional law professor?
          When I was in law school, I addressed all of my course instructors as “professors,” regardless of their rank or formal position in the school academic hierarchy (tenured professor, assistant professor, adjunct professor, lecturer, etc.). Was Obama exaggerating or factually wrong in referring to himself as a “constitutional law professor” at the University of Chicago Law School even though his official title was lecturer?
          A:
          His formal title was “senior lecturer,” but the University of Chicago Law School says he “served as a professor” and was “regarded as” a professor.
          Sen. Obama, who has taught courses in constitutional law at the University of Chicago, has regularly referred to himself as “a constitutional law professor,” most famously at a March 30, 2007, fundraiser when he said, “I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution.” A spokesman for the Republican National Committee immediately took exception to Obama’s remarks, pointing out that Obama’s title at the University of Chicago was “senior lecturer” and not “professor.”

          UC Law School statement: The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as “Senior Lecturer.” From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law School’s Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined. FactCheck.org March 28, 2008

            Greg, I hope you are aware that an over educated person can sometime lack common sense. We need some one as our president that has commom sense. It would be nice for our president to have a business background, and some experience in running a busines, not necessarily a law degree. Lawyers, at times tend to muddy the waters so people cannot see the truth.

Get the hint??

      • wayne

        Gregg, Obama is only educated in books, he does not have any practical experience, or common sense. To prove my point take an electronics course for how ever long as you like, in a class room, say for 4 years. Afterwards go out in the field and see if you can do the actual work. I guarantee you, you will not be able to do it. You need practical experience. What I am trying to tell you is that Obama may have the book kmnowledge, but he certainly does not have practical experience. He needs to go so we can put a more well rounded person, say some one who know about finances.

      Mr Obama hflashman, thank you for your turly honest remarks about the job you have done. I hope you have enjoyed all your vacations. Please increase the taxes on the rich so the poor can create more jobs. You are doing a good job helping move all the business money out of their hands and into the government hands where it does the most good. Yes everything that is wrong is because of Bush, dont let the truth stop you from blaming him and the republicans as they are evil and must be removed. God bless and good luck. Please send me money, thanks.

    • Jeep

      I just couldn’t get past that first line Flash, you know, “Sigh…trying to deflect the current situation onto Pres. Obama seems to be a favorite these days”. So, the question is, at what point does this “current situation” become Oman’s “situation”? Or, does it ever? I mean really, we could then say that Bush inherited a “situation”, so you can’t blame him. And, you know that Clinton inherited a “situation”, as well. So, really, they cannot be “blamed” either. You lib idiots are all the same. At whatever the cost to your integrity, you will never accept any responsibility.

      hey, Flashy. How are you going to like the financial reform bill when it takes effect? No more free checking. 1% assessed to EVERY transaction brokered thru a bank? And let’s see. In the Obamacare bill, there’s this little thing that went with it to impose a 3.8% surcharge on EVERY home sale. You will not be able to not be taxed on your health insurence premiums. You will not be able to keep your current health insurance because of a little clause that states that if ANYTHING changes in your current coverage YOU LOSE. Get a brain. I don’t want the feds up mu butt interfering in my health care choices OR knowing what the state of my health is. You want the change and to keep blaming someone, keep it. Don’t try to force it on the rest of us.

    Obama is the biggest “cry-baby” to ever sit in the oval office. Give it a rest already! I used to work for this company that would fire you if you ever blamed your incompetence on your predessesor or your co-workers, if you were in charge and it was your project, you either fixed it or they got someone else to do it that could, you did not get a pass for blaming someone else…..this guy is no president, he has cheapened and disgraced the office in my opinion.

    WHAT nobody is realizing is that the DEMS have been in charge of Congress since 2004. They are responsible for the wreckage and collapse in our Economy. And Obama is getting away with blaming George Bush. The truth is that USA was attacked in the first few months of the Bush administration. WE, were so united during those horrible days and months of 911. Then Katrina devastated our land. That was very costly. I recall that Bush warned the residents of the impending danger to the Gulf coast and told them to begin to evacuate before the hurricane hit. NO ONE was listening and many people were victims of the hurricane. How can Bush be blamed for that? At least, he was there within 2 days. How long did it take Obama to respond to the BP disaster? LOOK at Pelosi and Reid for blame too. They head the Congress and have been for there for the Pork Barrel spending and the breakdown of our economy. It is TIME for REAL Change. Vote with real knowledge this time. Pretty speeches and words are CHEAP! Obama is excellent with his speeches, but not always truthful.

    • Wlmitch1

      Actually, the Democrats won the majority in both Houses in the November 2006 midterm election. The new Democrat-controlled Congress took power in January 2007. Bush began to cave somewhat in January 2005 to pacify the screaming Left. It did not work. In January 2007, he began caving much more, which turned him into a mediocre President by the time he left office. The 2008 budget, which ran from 10/01/2007 through 09/30/2008, caused a large deficit. The 2009 budget, which ran from 10/01/2008 through 09/30/2009, caused an even larger deficit. Both were passed by a Democrat-controlled House and Senate, and signed by Bush. The Fall 2008 bailout, which I opposed, was supposed to be a one-time event. Only some of it was Bush’s fault because he caved to the Democrats and the Left, but he was still much better than the current President. This is why we Constitutional Conservatives MUST take control of the Republican Party by voting all of the Republicrats, RINOs, Corporate Welfare types, and Globalists OUT!

    • eddie47d

      Mo-50; Not this again! Obama didn’t respond to the BP oil spill right away because BP told the government not to interfere and BP could handle it. My question to you ,Should the government correct a private company if they insist they can take care of it?

      • Brad

        Eddie47d,

        The government should of been their hand in hand with BP, they should of been assessing the situation and recommending the type of action to help mitigate the environmental impact from so much oil. The Obama administration failed to ensure there were adequit skimmers inplace to soak up all the oil. The administration failed to accept foreign requests to assist us, and why, the administration had a bigger picture in store for us. Once the oil had been stopped they were looking at cap and trade as their next big fish to shove down our throats. Another tax and spend bill that no one in congress has read.

        WHY NOT, Eddie47D? The government has an obligation and right to take care of our country during any disaster. So are you saying that waiting over 100 days is ACCEPTABLE? Tell that to the families of the eleven, and all the families that lost their livelihood.

      • Claire

        eddie47d–Sorry, I have to disagree but I will explain. Obama should have found out from BP on “day one” if BP had the machinery and wherewithal to cap the leak ASAP. All Obama had to do was to ask this question and apparently he did not. He made a mistake in
        “trusting” BP–anyone with any sense at all knows you can’t trust an oil company. Valuable time was lost, and the people, wetlands, and the marine life are the ones taking the hit.
        And if Obama has any sense at all, he will demand that oil companies have the proper equipment readily available in case of oil spills—and this would apply to each and every oil rig in the US and anywhere near the US. By gosh, If I were the POTUS, this would be done immediately. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    Do you want to be the Boss? Do you want to make big changes? How about living the way you want, choose what you want, be free? It’s really pretty simple. All you have to do is register to vote and every time the opportunity comes up VOTE!

    There really is a group of people who decide how much money you get to keep for yourself. You can have a say in who these people are, if you really want to. Just vote.

    Everyone from the City Council, Mayor, Commissioners, to the Governor, Congressmen, Senators, and the President have a hand in molding you the way they want to. Isn’t it time you decided who you want to be. Someone who was elected to office passed every law you have to obey. Elected by the every day person.

    These elected officials can and do manipulate the job market just by regulations that dictates who stays in business and who goes out of business. That college degree you are working on might not be worth squat by the time you hit the job market.

    Do you realize the number of Cops and Firemen protecting you and your property is decided by elected officials? Your electric bill, water bill, taxes, even the roads you drive on are influenced by elected officials. Elected officials get to say if you or your relatives go to war. These elected people are not all looking out for your best interest. Some can be as dumb as a bowl of rice and still make the laws you have to live by. Some are only concerned about being in power over you. All they need is VOTES! To get rid of them all you need to do is Vote!

    Do you want that drug addict, drunk, or high school dropout choosing who makes your laws? What about that elitist from the other side of town? What about those welfare people? Are you just going to let them choose who makes your laws and how much money and freedom is taken from you? Well they can, and have been, just by registering and voting.

    Stop being pushed around. Make your stand and Vote!

      That’s right Noel. I am tired of paying more and more and getting less and less for groceries, higher prices for electricity, fuel, and other necessities. I cannot afford health care. I am 60 years old, still work, and I have not insurance, because it is too expensive and insurance has rejected me because of fibromyalsia and glaucoma. I am concerned that my generation is going to be phased out sooner than we should. I am carrying my own weight and I don’t want the government to take care of me. I just don’t want them to keep stealing my money, time and freedoms.

      Noel,
      I started voting at 18 and haven’t missed a chance to vote since and I will be 60 in December!!! That’s 42 years and running. When one of the people running for mayor asked my wife and I if we were going to vote one day we said we had to run home and drop off the kids with our neighbor and come back. His wife said they would watch them for us so we could hopefully vote for them- actual statement. We knew them for about seven years so we agreed and went in and voted AGAINST him. I said we knew him I didn’t say we wanted him for MAYOR!!!!

    Obama and his crew have their heads so far up the back end of socialism that they will fight like Saddam Hussein in Desert Storm…expend your troops in the face of overwhelming odds and when you lose you turn tail, run, and set everything on fire.

    As for raping the social security, our Government has been dipping into the funds for decades and have allowed people who have never paid a dime into it to collect, social security has been use as another form of welfare for years way before Bush got in the picture.

    U.S. citizens, try not to be Extreme and keep a calm. WE cannot go out there with our pitch forks. Let US keep integrity in the forefront. WE can do this by speaking to our neighbors, friends and family, but do it with Peaceful demonstration. WE, need to reclaim our nation, from the far out notions that have overtaken us. WE, need to teach our younger generation, who have been subtlety subjected to the socialist ideas that are prevalent TODAY. It has taken 90 years in the making, since 1920′s to get where they (Socialists) are and WE must re-educate and show them what is wrong, without violence and without loosing our countenance. Hold your head up and BE an honorable AMERICAN.

      All should get involved in theirchildrens education!!! If they come home and tell you that the teacher taught them something you KNOW to be BS, go to the school and call them on it!! make them prove their statements. Also prove to your kids that they are not owned by the school. For example there was money stolen from the band room in my daughters school. Since she was there along with about 20 students, they called a cop in to question all the students. I went in and dam near danced on their desk. I informed them if they ever had my daughter questioned by the cops again without my being there, I would get a GOOD lawyer and sue the hell out of them! My daughters jaw dropped and on the way home she said ” dad you yelled at the principal and the cops!!” I told her that yes, I did because they have to follow the rules just like we do. But I also told her she was never to yell at them, that if she had a problem with them she was to come to ME! They never questioned her again on anything!!!

    Does anyone on this blog care or understand the correlation between our rising trade deficit, CEOs rise in salary/benefits w/profits invested off shore, while the average workers’ salary/benefits have been stagnant or lost, that corporations pay less tax and some none, while they exploit our environment, that the financial industry has gambled away our homes/retirement, that the few are getting richer while the majority of US pay a higher % of income in taxes & healthcare costs, that more jobs/industry have been outsourced to slave labor than industry/jobs w/living wages created, that we started 2 illegal war fronts w/o any thought to pay for them, in the last 30yrs of increased deregulation, union busting and free trade agreements?
    Are you paying attention to who is trying reign this in and who is trying to continue the hemorrhaging of our economy? Do you know the difference between bail outs and stimulus? Are you paying attention to who’s protecting corporate outsourcing/off shore profiteering interests and who’s standing up to them for US profits?

    I was born during the great depression and grew up during WWII in small towns in Western PA. I remember them booming with small businesses, mills, and jobs for those who wanted to work. I am a Korean Vet and noticed our small towns start drying up in the “60′s”: some small businesses closing, jobs getting scarce, and people leaving small towns for larger cities for work. Steel mills – which PA had a few – closed down. Coal mines closed down, merchants closed their stores. Now most of our jobs and industries have been outsourced to other countries. Small towns are now ghost towns.Big cities are sinking too. We’re primarily left with service industries. Both parties were in charge of this country during this time. That is why I am Independent because both parties are corrupt. Both have looted the “gold-Pot” (taxes) to get great pensions, health care, raises, vacations (junkets), all paid for by all of us suckers who pay taxes. Some have even become millionaires (Clintons. Folks we have to blame ourselves for letting this happen. We citizens have to demand that term limits are legislated for Senators and Congressman. What they vote for us they are also subjected to the same. Quit blaming the parties, get involved to make those we elect to adhere to explicit changes we all want for the future of our children and future citizens of America!

    • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

      Eliminate or reduce the pensions. Term limits will not work.

    • Wlmitch1

      I think a 12-year limit per House would be appropriate. That is six two-year terms in the House and two six-year terms in the Senate. Keep the Presidency at two four-year terms. Reduce the salaries, benefits, and pensions of all Federal elected officials and make them live by the same laws they pass for the rest of us. Candidates who have not read, and/or do not have an undrestanding of, the U.S. Constitution should not be eligible to run for ANY elected office.

  • Rich Miles

    Trouble is, Obama hasn’t blamed ENOUGH on W.

    Bush and his cacodemons spent 8 years trying to give the entire treasury to their pals, and otherwise destroy America’s standing all over the world, and frighten our allies into paroxysms of fear, and Obama hasn’t even mentioned these things.

    Frankly, I think Obama deserves a medal for bravery for running for and accepting the presidency after that monstrosity of an alleged presidency. If McCain had won, he would have been blaming Shrub for every bad thing that’s happened to America since the Boston Tea Party. And if any of you fools on this website are not aware of just what a bastard and a fool W was, and still think he did a good job, let me point out to you that he is the worst president in my lifetime of 60 years, and probably the worst in the country’s history.

    And if you don’t agree with me, you’re stupid. It’s just that simple. There are many things I believe that are open to discussion, but that is not one of them. Those who think Shrub was anything even remotely resembling a good president are simply – stupid. No more, no less.

    Robert: I believe if you checked the facts, you will find that President Clinton was the one who took from Social Security and the General Fund to balance the budget.

    Ann: I live in Florida and watched the entire count and recount, hanging chads. Gore even tried to disallow the absentee ballots from the troops overseas and went to court over this. The hanging chads came out much in favor of Gore in those areas where Democrats were in the majority and he still lost.
    The difference, I believe, was the overwhelming vote in absentee ballots for Bush so let’s stop spreading misinformation.

      You apparently have already forgotten that we were in a panic in ’08 w/ the stock market crashing and retirement accts loosing half their value. The distasteful bailouts and the economic stimulus were expensive but did stabilize the economy and market.

      • CONSERVATIVE AT BIRTH

        Who was in a panic? Not me. I predicted the housing bubble burst in 1998.

        • Denniso

          The great financial class and the entire country was in a panic when the market crshed to 6700. The market has rebounded to over 10,000 under Obama…isn’t that a measure of success? Of course it is…

          • Brad

            Denniso,

            The only reason the DOW is up over 10K today, the markets have been working, but alot of people lost their savings, their retirements due to the market crash. The markets work in cycles and no sitting president can tell when and by how much the market rise and or fall.

          • Denniso

            The market doesn’t operate in a vacuum. It is a measure of the health and psychology of the country,which is why it plummeted w/ the panic and temporarily erased retirement and investment accts. If people left their money in the market, they have recovered back to 80% of the amount before the crash…not bad considering how low and quickly
            the drop was. The actions of the gov’t have stabilized the economy and we are now on an even plateau…trying to get the economy back to the level before the bubble burst is more than difficult,especially because it was an unhealthy bubble that was not sustainable. The history of capitalism is boom and bust and now the Repubs want to blame Obama for the flaws of capitalism…childish and ignorant and pure politics!!

          • denniso

            Spoken like a true nature worshiper…everything is just part of some natural cycle. The bubble bursting had nothing to do w/ the market crash to 6500 and nothing Obama did has helped the market recover to 10,400…much like global warming,nothing we do to the planet affects the planet,it’s just another natural cycle. I feel much better now that I realize that humans can’t affect anything at all…the market, the climate,war and peace,love and hate….

So the marxist muslim moron was in the inner circles of Arabs, and Congress squealing like a pig and the dems just own the hog wallow of the beltway, for the screw ups themselves, job looses, high cost of health care, stimulas money for “shovel ready projects” that never were, infra structure building “window replacement”, and the best is, going back to school for more educated morons with nothing to do. The best thing the socialist dems could do is go to the library and read some history books, read them slowly to understand every snetence, and damn they might get a clearer picture of what their communist party has been going for. George McGovern was a registered communist, all the way to the marxist muslim moron that idoits voted for.

    Obama is the blood sacrifice. After this sacrifice is made, we’ll see all of the draconian laws and Executive Orders set in place by Cheney and his ilk (Bush was just along for the ride) come into fruition.

  • marvin

    eddie47d,,less see who is it that put people to work the rich or the poor have you ever saw a poor person put 1000 people to work

    • thinking

      marvin, the truth is the poor are putting people to work in two ways. One they have to have more government employees to distribute the money from the rich and two the money they get they can buy drugs and put more money in the hands of drug dealers (Mexico)so they will need more people to carry the drugs. Sure not all poor people use drugs and yes drugs are used by the middle and upper class but the poor get windfall profits and help the economy right! Poor is a word used by democrats to suppress people from bettering them self. Just like those that blame people as being racist is used to keep people from growth and using the poor pitiful me, someone hates me, from having to deal with life.

      • Dr. Mabuse

        To be sure, the Mexican cartels are responsible for some of the drugs being brought into the U.S. But lets not forget Mena Ark. and the coke that was brought in via Daddy Bush and Slick Willy. I would also point your attention to the BCCI scandal and the all the individuals involved in laundering the “dirty money”. In point of fact, drug money has been a prime source for the funding of the machinations of our “shadow government”. How many ops have been and still are off book? The plain truth is that we as Americans don’t have the testicular fortitude to clean up our own act. Don’t bitch if you won’t step up… Hint: its asymetrical in practical appilcation.
        Where are my hairy chest compatriots?

        • 45caliber

          Bush had nothing to do with Mena. That was all BILL. Bill also started and ran the biggest money laundrying program in the US as governor – and he and Hillary made a fortune in it. Please, don’t get me started on Bill!

          • Dr. Mabuse

            Say .45 if I applied your logic, Then Daddy Bush (Occult name Magog)
            was completely without fault in the Iran-Contra scandal. Additionally
            I would have to wipe his hands (and his progeny) clean of the BCCI and Silverado debacle. I would hold dear to my heart the illusion that Skull and Bones isn’t a Luciferian cult and its members Bush and Shrub inclusive are as pure as the driven snow. I won’t enumerate the crimes commtitted by the CIA while Daddy Bush was at the helm, you’ve already wiped the slate clean for me. Do me a favor rack the gates one more time for me.

  • Robert Berger

    Conservatives are still in denial,and that ain’t the river that runs through Egypt. Let’s face it; the Bush administration did incalculable damage to the US economy in its two disastrous terms.
    Yes, the Obama administration has no doubt made some serious mistakes and will contnue to. All Presidential administrations have done this,but it’s just to early to know what the long term effects will be.
    And Bush did an enormous amount of damage to America and the world in many other ways,too.
    Just for starters, Bush caused :Reckless deregulation,
    the subprime loan crash, crushing debt, increased concentration of wealth, (if conservatives are afraid of Obama redistributing wealth,Bush did it the opposite way as a reverse Robin hood,stealing the the poor and middle class to give to the already wealthy),
    tax cuts for the super rich, lack of preparedness for natural disasters, neglect of New orleans after Katrina, underfunded crime prevention, neglect of veterans,underfunded programs for childhood education, massive deterioration of the infrastructure,
    dangerous products, ineffective medicine, the thwarting of vital scientific and medical research and experimentation because of obscurantisr religious beliefs, shameless pandering to the religious right,willful mismanagement of government agencies,
    denial and suppression of scientific evidence, and pouring an unconscionable amount of money down the toilet in the futile and disastrous Iraq conflict which could and should have been used in desperately needed domestic programs.And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
    In fact, the Obama and liberals have shown a great deal of restraint in blaming Bush given all the terrible things he has done.
    I don’t hate Bush; he’s not a malicious or evil man, and he meant well. But we all know the saying about the road to hell being paved with good intentions.

    • ValDM

      Reckless deregulation wasn’t Bush’s baby. Look a little further back to Bubba Clinton.

      • Greg

        The Bush Administration had 8 years to see it, and fix it.

        • Wayne

          Nope! Obama has had nearly two years and he has not done anything to help the economy. Remember! the Democrats had the majority since 2006. A Republican President can’t do anything while he had a Democratic Congress to deal with. Democrats will be voted out in 2012. We are tired of taking money from the hard working people and giving giving it to special interest groups that put Obama in office.

    • 45caliber

      Robert Berger:

      I’m not even sure where to start on your list of “transgressions” … but I feel that someone should.

      “reckless deregulation” – Bill did a lot of that too … first.

      “Subprime loan crash” – started under Carter and accented by Bill when he insisted that banks had to give a certain percentage of bad loans.

      “Crushing debt” – I’m not sure when this was started. Back before Carter for sure.

      “increased concentration of wealth” – Frankly, I don’t care where the wealth is as long as I have enough for my needs. And I really dislike being forced to give of what I earn to support someone too lazy to work. And the more taken away from me to support the lazy (are you one) the less I have to support myself.

      “tax cuts for the super rich” – tax cuts for everyone who paid taxes.

      “Lack of preparedness for natural disasters” – Really? There are a number of good groups to take care of such problems. The real problem is that FEMA (thanks to Bill) refused to let any of them into NO except under their own “leadership”.

      “Neglect of NO” – Really off there. Want some of the Katrina NO unhelped? At least they say they were. I’ll be glad to send them to you. Most are STILL getting government care for Katrina five years later.

      ” Underfunded crime prevention” – You must mean the money Bush didn’t spend on Clinton’s “midnight basketball”.

      “Neglect of vets” – not sure where you are getting this from.

      “Underfunded programs for childhood education” – The FEDS are NOT supposed to fund it. The states and locals are.

      “massive deterioration of the infrastructure” – where? As far as I know Congress decided this.

      “dangerous products” – ???

      “Ineffective medicine” – Are you certain you aren’t getting Oblama and Bush mixed up here?

      “twarting of Vital Scientific and medical research” – Really? Vital? Stimcells? So far I’ve not seen any sign of that. Research could go on – they just couldn’t take other samples that what they already were busy on.

      “Willful mismanagement of government agencies” – the only things I can remember were the ones that were stopped from doing things they weren’t supposed to be doing in the first place.

      “Suppression of scientific evidence” – talking about global warming, perhaps? Then you should check out the stuff the LIBS were suppressing about it!! That showed it was all a hoax.

      Finally the “futile and disasterous Iraq conflict” – Futile? Perhaps but history hasn’t shown that yet. Lots of money? Yes. And guess where it was spent and who insisted on spending it? The libs insisted we had to rebuild the country – even though much of what we “rebuilt” wasn’t there in the first place.

      Please, get your facts straight.

  • David

    President Reagan did indeed criticize President Carter. Here is ONE example:

    http://features.kodoom.com/en/videos/reagan-criticizing-carter-for-undercutting-shah-of-iran-shah-did-our-hard/v/2101/

    President Bush also criticized President Clinton. After 8 months in office, while President Bush was on guard duty, 9/11 occurred. Yep, the Bush administration blamed Clinton for the attack.

    • Brad

      Hi David,

      It was Clinton’s administration that left the military weak and our intelligence agencys lacking quality leadership and proper scope to fight terrorists. It was during Bills watch when the USS COLE was attacked and 17 US Navy sailors were killed.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Brad,
        It was under Bills watch that OBL was handed to the US on a silver platter and slick willie turned him down!! Very likely that 9/11 wouldn’t have happened had they taken him and found him guilty of planning attacks on the US in foriegn lands!

        • Denniso

          So, it was Clinton’s fault that terrorists in a speed boat ramed into our ship and blew a hole in it? Was it Reagans fault for the marine barrack bombing overseas that killed many more than 17?

          Clinton didn’t leave our military weak. It was the demise of the cold war that prompted most in the country to want to downsize the cold war level military to save money and put it to other uses where the need was great. Repubs and Dems alike went along w/ the shift…we still had the largest military ever in the history of the world.

      • David

        Hey Brad, good to hear from you again.

        1. I was responding to the premise of the author of this article that President Reagan never criticized President Carter. I proved him wrong with one, of many, examples on video.

        2. President Bush has also criticized President Clinton.

        3. Neither President Clinton nor President Bush was responsible for the attack on the Cole. And, neither President prosecuted the case.

        4. Who is responsible when the guard on duty is asleep and the company is attacked, the guard who wasn’t on duty any longer? President Bush was EXPLICITLY WARNED in his daily briefing that we were going to be attacked, and with hijacked aircraft.

        Beer?

        • Denniso

          True, but the rightwing whiners won’t budge since everything is always a Dem’s fault. Repub presidents are saints,can never do wrong,didn’t you know that?

    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    liberals like to show their hate
    in support of the promise to fill their plate
    nothing in the world could ever be free
    not even health care for you or me
    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    Obama has studied Alinsky and Ayers
    rules for radicals and muslim prayers
    the words from his mouth ring truth no more
    he’s a Marxist believer deep in his core
    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    government growth and government control
    these websites are filled with his government trolls
    if we lose in November we’re pretty well done
    hang on to your money and cling to your guns
    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    pride in America is what we say
    we want a free market not government pay
    so praise ole glory and the red white and blue
    lets show our pride, take back America too
    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    Song, song of the sheeple
    never will convince the American people
    Glory glory hallelujah the truth keeps marching on

  • http://None Oscar Bergman

    Oh, what fools we Americans are. George Bush did not take us to war – congress took us to war. The President does not have the power to “take us to war”, but rather it is the congress. When the Iraq war stated, who was in-charge of Congress? The Democrats.
    George Bush is an American hero.
    Barak Obama is an traitor. (Don’t know if he is an American or not.)

    • THINK ABOUT

      Where did you find the information where Congress declared war on Iraq. I would like to know in what action that occurred. It was absolute descretion given to Bush, now follow the paper work after that. You blame who for this one, Bush used his descretion.

      • Brad

        Oscar,

        Sorry my friend, Bush had a Republican congress in 2003

        Think About,

        Congress gave Bush the authority under the war powers act to go into Iraq and take out Saddam Hussein. Bush even went to the United Nations and was granted approval, ya gotta love history.

        • Denniso

          I could be wrong,but I don’t think the war powers act was ever invoked. Most of congress voted to support the use of force to remove
          Saddam,but war was never actually declared. Many Democrats voted against it.
          Most,or all of western Europe voted against the Iraq invasion,though Colin Powell sat there and presented false intel to support Bush,and later resigned over the falsehoods.

  • you don’t know jack

    Hey Obama, when injustice become law, Rebellion becomes duty! We will not turn our heads a look away anymore. I can’t believe a leader from another nation stands before our Congress and blames the American people for the wrong doings in his country. He should have been shown the door and laughed at all the way back to Mexico. See you at the polls libs, freedom will once again shine on our country come Nov.

    • Greg

      YDKJ-S…I thought that Republicans loved the whole “taking responsibility” thing. The USA screwed up in some respects in dealing with the rest of the world. We, as a Nation are not perfect, nor anointed, nor more blessed by God than any other Nation on Earth.
      ***
      We needed to apologize and the rest of the world needed to hear it. It takes a big man, or country, to say they have made a mistake. It doesn’t minimize the stature of the man or the country.

      • 45caliber

        Greg:
        If God didn’t help our country, then I’d say that the Americans who did were much better and smarter than others in the world.

        Really, it doesn’t matter. We ARE better regardless of the reason you might give. We didn’t gain everything by luck. And appoligizing to everyone in the world for being better is not going to help anything. What did Oblama appologize for? For being better? Work as hard as we do! For inventing more things? Study and get busy! For having more wealth? Learn to run a good business! We own no one for being more wealthy. Americans have been the equal to ALL in the world for two hundred years. Now you are trying to say we should appologize for being better? And do you also agree with the liberals that we “owe” all those characters in the world because we did work hard and are rich and they didn’t? And if you don’t believe anything I’ve said here, move to some third world country for a few years. You’ll find that many of those who complain most are too lazy to do anything else. Over 25% of the people in Jamacia, for instance, are unemployed because they can pick fruit or fish to get a meal and sleep on the beach instead of a house. They LIKE it that way. Americans don’t and I, for one, have no intention of appologizing for what we do.

        • eddie47d

          I agree with Greg and most of what Caliber said.We are a great nation and have helped many. We have also poked our nose into the internal affairs of other nations. We are more right than wrong but when we are wrong we should be the bigger nation and apoligize.

  • Dale

    Never a month goes by that I don’t hear the cowardly phrase “its not my fault”. Too many Americans have fallen by the wayside and become promoters of lies and ill will. I cannot say when it all started but it really came to light with Clinton.

    Half-white NObama’s first lie is that he is black, he is only half black. Spoken by a true racist, himself.
    Half-white NObama’s second lie is that he is Christan, he quotes the Quran like a preacher but never says anything about the bible.
    Half-white NObama is a lie, a coward, and I doubt he could ever accept any responsibility for anything he does. A true narcissist.
    Half-white NObama took his oath and promised more transparency than any other president. On the same day he sealed his records, the beginning of the biggest lie in history.
    Next I suppose half-white NObama will blame Bush for not spending the money that half-white NObama spent as part of the wasted bailouts.

    Only a coward would bow to foreign powers.
    Only an anti-American would not salute the flag and badmouth the constitution.

    • THINK ABOUT

      So Dale, what do you have to say for those who “believes the lies”, you have fallen in ditch and apparently are unable to rise above and know the truth. Believe in lies, like the lie Bush pushed to get the US into Iraq and then called it faulty information. I am wondering what planet you are living in, the truth will set you free. To continue to post lies will never make it true, so go on with your lies and stay in the ditch of lies.

  • Gene

    Blame it on Bush must be a character trait that Mr. Obama has. When a person runs for the position of President of the United States, he or she is saying that they are running for the position and all of the problems and solutions that go with it. Successful executives everywhere are assigned positions that have benefits and problems. If you get a position, everything goes with it ! If you don’t want the position, don’t compete for it !! An old adage says that “a person is never a COMPLETE failure until they blame other people for their problems” Anybody can do that. Also, “it takes a good craftsman to put together a barn, but any old jackass can kick it down!” The man is incompetent and the most dangerous president that America has ever had. Now, how much longer can this country stand for this type of erosion of our country and government ? Can we survive for another 2 + years?

The same problem with the SEC not enforcing rules and deregulation. The two wars of Bush finished off our present financial disaster.

    • Denniso

      Preemptive war and lessening of financial regulations…the Repubs can’t admit that both were disasters and so they have to blame Obama. The ‘sacred’ free market can’t possibly be flawed,can it? No, it’s the first ever black president’s fault,because he’s a Democrat and because it can’t be the fault of a Repub prez or the ‘divine’ free market.

  • dnld

        • Denniso

          dnld…sorry to correct you, but the Dems took control of both houses

    Barack Hussein Obama is a living, breathing black stereotype. Two stereotypes, actually. Stereotype 1: Never accept responsibility for anything. Always blame others, especially if they are white. Always blame everything on racism. Sterotype 2: Black people are immoral, dishonest and in no way shape or form can they be trusted.

    This has been Obama’s method of operation throughout his failed presidency and he will continue acting like a whining “I’m-a-victim” crybaby until he is finally thrown out of office. If the Republicans gain the majority and do not throw him out of office, no Republican will ever get my vote again–and I don’t vote for Democrats.

I cashed in all my stocks, bonds and annuities and insurances and closed all my savings accounts. I may not be gaining any interest, but I’m also not giving another dime to a bunch of freeloaders (being white, black, brown, green or yellow: this IS NOT a race issue) who won’t work for a living and support their families.We so desperately need a President who is FOR THE PEOPLE and not so self-absorbed and power hungry!!I think Obama knows that he’ll never be re-elected in 2012, so he’ll do as much damage as he can before he’s outta there! He placates to the Latino population because he want their votes. God help them if they get him re-elected! I truly believe that once he gets what he needs from them being here, he’ll turn the table on them! They should beware the “bull”! He speaks with a forked tongue! He won’t even take responsibility for his actions. He’s too busy playing the “blame game” and the “I didn’t do it” game! Just like an immature little, spoiled child!! I can hardly wait for 2012 to get here. Hopefully, we’ll get a REAL man back in the White House!

    The reason Barack Hussein Odumbo acts the way he does (blaming his blunders and all bad things on Bush while trying to take credit for good things, if there are any) is because he knows how ignorant and naïve many Americans are.

      (and I might add very wisely) playing their cards close to the vest.
      A friend of mine suggested that the bomb has already gone off and we’re just waiting on the shock wave to catch up to us. This evil that affects all of us is multi faceted. For those so myopic as to revel in a left right paradigm is an anathema to me. Kill the head and the body will die is not the right strategem in this instance.
      One must destroy the root… burn it then salt the earth around the burnt carcass. But then, I’ve exposed too much game. Remember the axiom:
      Those who say don’t know….
      Those who know don’t say….
      I need help to break the mold….
      Is there no help fot this poor widow’s son?

        Dr. Mabuse–I read your post–”verbally eviscerate”–I am not making fun of you–it just made me laugh. I try to remain calm too and those words you posted made me laugh. I needed that laugh.

This fool aint got no backbone.Then blames Us Americans on national TV.Impeach his butt people.Instead he should be grabbin them reins and picking up the problems and fixing them the best way he and we let him doo.I know use black folk have had past troubles but it was the white man that freed us from the shakles.Good old Abe lincoln took a chance and paid with his life.He was not perfect either nor I or all of you.We are all human voicing our opinions which is fine.But, We are not “listening” to one another.The thinking is whom is better than the other.Man please.We are in this situation do to our doing. Like who has the most bling or coolest wheels,biggest house, the bigger gangs.I was in a gang in my younger to middle years.I had started my family during those times.I was in a situation on whom to choose.I lost two of my brothers and 3 white brothers that were my friends.They all were one color red and dead.I dropped to my knees.Said Lord help me get out.This is wrong.My wife had our 2nd child that same day.Life is pricless.I never looked back on the past again.The past is nothin but scripture that we all wrote.Its done.If you wanted to make a differance than you should of done so.You all want to blame another when you could of been the one that started.To good to proud to take the blame.So, we blame someone else to take the spotlight off of you.People like you have a mouth with no ass or balls and you hide behind someone else until they fall and you may keep hidding but it will catchup and bite you where you deserve
    it.Mr Obama is no leader.He needs to go back to Illinois or even better get the hell out of our country live with those crazy mosk people.We do not need you and your stupit pointin figer ass.Move foward people.Everything else has been written stop the damn bickerin.My brothers and sisters livin in the past aint helpin our future.We need to be responsiable for each of our own doin.I f you screw up swallow your damn pride and learn from it and be better at what you do.Damn that color BS too.Give a helpin hand.Jesus did.You Want him to help you.Than help others in your life.You are not that damn cool.see the paw on that.Another pull ya damn pants up.Doin stupit crap like that is why you are made fun off.My son started doin that crap.I busted that ass.Real men dont act like that.Come on people do not do the blame and pointin the finger.We only make things worse.Now I know why people call us and others names well acting like a fool is why.Show some damn intelligents and respect for your self.Parents bust your kids ass if they cant where their clothes right.In the news Mrs.Obama came of the plane in plain clothes.That is no way a 1st lady should be doin.No class but spendin Our cash.Obama points his finger at the Bushes.At least they dressed with class.People we are to blame what ever and whom ever we vote for.If you do not understand find some one to explain it to you.That makes you intelligent not stupit.Like you know something when you dont.If you do not have anything to say shut up and sit done.Do not make things worse.Being someone you aint makes you look like a fool.You will loos people respect.Because America its bad real bad.You crazy Mexicans make it english and legal OR get the foot.Tired of you people stealing our jobs and my kids future.

      I don’t care what color your skin is you have a very point there. You my friend are wiser than you think, you had a bad start but you brought your self up to where you are today you are an intelligent person and that is a very good thing. Today kids use what little intelligence they do have and they play with them, This prez we have is that type he plays with his intelligence and does nothing useful with them. I am a VET and he wants to take all our health care away from us and those damned illegals have better health care than I do. So Goofy I have to agree with you about this guy hes is using the blame game on us and that’s not right. All the other presidents accepted what they got when they came into office this person prefers to lay blame on those before him, If he can’t step up to the plate then he needs to sit back down and learn how to be a leader, and the first thing a good leader does is to accept the short falls of the person came before. In short he needs to accept responsibility for the office that includes what Bush left him with if he do that then hr needs to get the heck out of office before he does anything else.

    This half ways inept we are to call POTUS cannot come close to being the man G.W. was in office. He has no credentials and if he does whay are wqe not allowed to see them, he is half ways on everything he does and acts like a half wit.

We all need to keep this at the front of our minds. We need to remember history and not repeat the bad things that happened along the way from the time of our Independence from England and up to the present time. It has taken a lot of hard work to get us to this present time. Let’s all continue our hard work, put God back into our country, and I think together, we can, and will make a difference. We need to do this for our future generation like our ancestors have done for us.

        You’re right it wasn’t SOCIALISM when Obama and his HIND (Janet N) released a homeland security report declaring that Independents, conservatives, people who opposed abortion, and returning Veterans were Domestic Terrorists.

        And you’re right, it wasn’t SOCIALISM when Obama said “They bring a knife …. YOU bring a Gun”, when he called out the UNION THUGS to threaten a elderly WHITE MAN and his family at their home … because HE dared to exercise his right to free speech and talk to his Rep at a town hall with his disabled son.

        Nor was it SOCIALISM when LEFTIST LOONS chased down a JINDALL Fundraiser and broke her leg and her male companion’s JAW in New Orleans, LA! NOR was it SOCIALISM when SEIU THUGS roughed up a wheel chair bound black conservative.

        That was FLAT OUT Communism, the type of communism that was typically used by STALIN!

        Come to think of it Hitler and other despots used the same methods. And they believed in Communism, Facism, Socialism, and Nazism.

    I am a retired person who may have to face a death decision by jackals of the government if I suffer some catastrophic disease or possibly an accident as well and they, the jackals, do not think I am young enough to matter or cause a large expenditure by my staying alive. Now, keep in mind that I have paid into Social Security and Medicare (forced) much longer than younger folks, therefore much more than they, but the “jackals” may not see me as being worthy of living and deny me coverage.
    This way, the younger folks, probably overdosing on sex, drugs and booze as well as illegal aliens (mostly from or at least through Mexico) will be taken care of properly. After all, they must be much more worthy than I. They have not paid into the program as long as I or maybe not at all (illegal aliens) so why shouldn’t they be more worthy? I do not mean to imply that all younger folks have such problems but that they would be the ones to use the system.

    And what in the world gave the government the right to decide if I live or die? This government can go to the devil and I think even he (the devil) would be disgusted by these “jackals” and morons.

    Mr. Obama lies every time he opens his mouth but maybe he can blame his teleprompter for that. I cannot understand why anyone would believe this fellow after all his lies. I am sincerely disgusted with the people who voted him into office, did they not look at his background? Meaning; no experience with any business, associated with Acorn, not even one full term as a Senator and being (lately) from Chicago where more folks are murdered than are killed in the wars we have been in and are in at the moment. Is this what he wants this country to look like? Like a big Chicago? Corruption at every corner and continuing every day.

    I can only hope and pray that this fellow and some of his cohorts will have the good graces to resign and let us put someone in the office that has some good decent common SENSE!!!!

      Pat: are you kidding me? I only read the first line of your post but what absolute tripe! You’ve swallowed the Sarah Palin bag of lies whole. For the love of God: there are NO death panels. Even in countries like Canada with a single-payer insurance system there are no death panels. And the Obama legislation isn’t even close to that- it’s still a private insurance system. There are no death panels. Where do you people get this stuff?

      Okay I just read the rest of your post. Do you not see the irony in the fact that you receive government-funded MEDICARE- and probably have been for years- and yet you see Obama’s health care legislation as some sinister socialist plot? You do realize that Medicare is a single payer system and as such is much closer to socialized medicine than anything Obama has done or ever hopes to do? Were you worried about death panels when you started receiving Medicare? I think you people- yes all of “y’all”- are so blinded by your hatred of Obama that you can’t see the obvious logical fallacies in your “arguments”.

      • Claire

          Your Doctors most likely (if they’re members of the AMA). I read the entire bill! I’ve read HR 3590, HR 4782, S 819, HR 2413 among several others. And the death panels are there!

          YOU don’t BELIEVE ME? Than go to CONGRESS.GOV and READ THE BILLS FOR YOURSELF!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Claire,
            While there are no death panels per say, there will be RATIONING! That can lead to the very same thing! A noted dr on the health carepanel said that rationing will be necessary to maintain costs!!! If they don’t give the seniors what they need soon enough, there might as well be death panels!!

        • JeffH

          Claire, the reality is that under Obamacare, health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. That is clearly what the term “death panel” refers to. A group of bureaucrats will decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care.

          • Claire

            JeffH– I am aggravated with the entire mess. I will have to read it all myself-better yet, I’ll have my husband read it. He has started but is not anywhere near being through reading it.

          • Denniso

            There is NOTHING like ‘death panels’ in the healthcare bill..that’s just absurd and meant to scare older people.

            I guess some people(Repubs) don’t mind the healthcare rationing that has been occurring for decades…those who can’t afford it don’t get it,except for the very poor who can qualify and make it through the red tape meant to keep many out.

            Some people(Repubs)also don’t mind the thousands of middle class Americans who have gone bankrupt paying med bills or those who get canceled after an illness and can’t get reinsured.

          • David

            JeffH,
            Our current health care market (we do not have a system, we have a chaotic and scattered market)already rations care. If you have the money to buy medical insurance, you live. If you do not have money to buy health care, you die. If you have a little money, you get little coverage. It doesn’t matter how old you are. If you are not profitable to the for profit health care insurance industry, you lose.

            About six months ago a child in my community was sick with cancer. His parents insurance company refused to cover the treatment because it was too expensive.(It cut into corporate profits too much) The parents didn’t have the over $400,000 to keep their son alive. He died. He was 5 years old!

            If this child lived in Europe with his parents, or Canada, he would be alive today, and receiving treatment. There are no “death panels” in the health care reform passed by the Democrats and President Obama. Anyone who says otherwise, is either wrong, or running for office.

            Everyone, please read T.R.Reid’s book “The Healing of America”. Then rethink you position on health care in our country.

          • Denniso

            Most smart people who don’t have a vested interest in our healthcare system agree that it’s a wreck and something had to be done to save it and help the millions w/o access to care. T R Reid is bright and has spent a lot of time on the issue,as opposed to most who blindly
            support the status quo.

  • John Silver

    Well with people like you blaming Obama for everything under the sun it’s no wonder he has to remind you that the things you’re complaining about were actually the result of the lost years of 2000-2008. Is there one thing in your list that isn’t true? the Katrina “response”, the financial meltdown, massive deficits during times of economic growth, the TRILLION dollars spent in Iraq- all absolute disasters and all under Bush/Republican “leadership”. I tell you what- as soon as people like you acknowledge that Bush and the Republicans were a disaster for America I’m sure that Obama and the Democrats will stop saying so and move on. Until then, they’ll keep reminding you of what you refuse to believe.

      John you have got to be kidding! In the past 19 months, the unemployment numbers have increased, even though Obama promised they would improve with the stimulus pkg.. How about Obamacare? We have to comply and some of us will not even be able to afford to buy insurance, because we lost our jobs during this President. And how is that CHANGE working when taxes will be raised, or senseless spending will occur? In my House, we don’t get to spend when we don’t have the funds. I only wish, we could print more money to get by. Wake up!!! We are worse off than EVER. I don’t see any relief in sight. DO you? The DEMS are to Blame, they collectively made it impossible to let our democratic system to work.

      • John Silver

        MO: The economy was losing 750,000 jobs a month when Obama took over- it has added jobs now (albeit very few) for the past seven months. Bush inherited a surplus from Clinton and turned it into a $650 billion deficit during a period of prolonged economic growth. Obama’s deficit in 2009 was $1.5 trillion but most economists said even if Bush had stayed in power in 2009 (God help us) it would have been at least $1.2 trillion. The bank bailout was started by Bush. The health care legislation is essentially the same as Mitt Romney’s (Republican) plan in Mass. Obama’s foreign policy is essentially the same as Bush’s, except for the pull out of Iraq. So where is this socialist plot you people are always going on about?

        • http://?? Joe H.

          john,
          Wrong! there has not been one month that has gained jobs without the jobs put there by the census. the problem with that was that some were going in to get their training then told to come back two weeks later and that was counted as TWO jobs gained!! There has been no gain in the privat sector since he took over.

          • Denniso

            The census workers have been gone for 2 months now…last month the number of jobs increased anyway, just not enough to make up for the number of new people entering the job market.

      • Robert Smith

        Hi MO_50. You appear to be cynical about health care under the current administration: >>>How about Obamacare?<<<

        How about it?

        Are you pro-life, MO? I can't understand why in our pay or die medical care system that anyone who claims to be pro-life isn't screaming for universal health care similar to what's going on in most industrialized countries. Both life span and infant mortality are better than in America in those countries. The U.S. is just about even with Cuba.

        But for some reason those who CLAIM to be pro-life are shown to be only political pawns of those who are using it as a red meat issue to buy votes with emotions. Frankly I think it's kinda sad.

          robert,
          Come talk to me for a moment! I have a handicapped son that I love as much as both of my daughters and if I had knew before I would not have asked my wife to get an abortion as I AM pro life. The only time I even partially agree with terminating a pregnancy is rape, incest, and the health of the mother! most of the pro-death people are just trying to avoid personal responsibility! Had a night of fun? oh cripe I’m pregnant we gotta get an abortion or the guy says I’m not the father type get an abortion. BULLSH!T!!! Put it up for adoption! There are very loving people out there that would jump at the chance to adopt a baby! They’re forced to go to europe and china along with other countries to find a way to adopt. What are we doing? We’re MURDERING them at an ever growing pace. Wholesale MURDER! Legal and accepted, BY SOME! Not all!!!

        • Denniso

          Sorry for your handicapped son, and hope he’s doing well.

          The abortion rate is actually down for the country. And, you say ‘give IT up for adoption’? Don’t you mean, give the BABY up for adoption?

          Also, I hope your son has health insurance…what would it be like if he didn’t?

        • MO_50

          Hey ROB, I am very Pro-Life. I was quite the activist in the late 1980′s. So much so that I believe my tactics worked very well to keep the issue in the forefront. My goal was educating the citizens and making sure they voted the “right party” in to protect LIFE. It worked, in my state we had a 20+ year of Republican control since then, in our predominantly Democrat state. Not today, the “change” message brought in the Democrat control in 2008 election.

          In the early 1980,s I was advocating “Universal health care!!” BAD idea. WHY?? Because, after much research, I learned that it is the survival of the fittest, and the government run healthcare system, would decide who was the fittest. I was in my 30′s then, and I was crying out to the public, my fears were (then) that my generation was sandwiched between the unborn and the elderly. That we needed to become knowledgeable in what was to come (something like OBAMACARE). HELLO!! I am now 60 yrs of age, and I regret, giving up too soon. No one took the batton after I quit being an activist. I don’t have the stamina anymore.

          I have not been able to get health insurance for over 6 yrs, because the industry, decided my existing (benign health issues) were uninsurable. It was my age then 54 yrs. not my conditions. Without funds and some financial limitations, I have chosen to get alternative care, which has been successful. I am pain free and clear minded and much better without the pharm drugs.

          The tidal wave of health issues has not hit our country yet? My advice is, Take Care of yourselves. BE AWARE of what you eat and drink and exercise. The Drugs and healthcare I received prior to loosing insurance, was KILLING me. The whole healthcare system needs to change and so does the mind set of the people. Cures don’t always come in a pill, or the medical environment. There is so much corruption in the AMA, CDC, FDA and many other agency. Bottom line, I DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT to run my life or take away my choices. Sorry, I wish I could have givin you a quick solid response.

          • Denniso

            You’re extremely pro life(anti choice)? Do you realize that tens of thousands die every year because they can’t afford healthcare and wait until it’s too late to get treatment? Why isn’t access to healthcare,which can keep people alive, considered ‘prolife’?
            I don’t go to dr’s unless I have no choice…I don’t believe in our over drugged culture and think most people use too much healthcare,but Americans shouldn’t die or go bankrupt because it’s unaffordable.

  • royallyangryconservative

    First of all, Obama he has yet to take any responsibility for ANYTHING that happened ON HIS WATCH!

    Forget BUSH! He’s NOT in office now! OBAMA IS! And I can tell you that COMMUNIST JERK did not get there with MY VOTE!

    • THINK ABOUT

      So if Bush did not take responsibility for his poor performance in office, just why would you expect Obama to take responsibility for failures. Thank goodness Bush is gone, 8 years too late, but we not have to fix the bad things of the past administration. Bush also said many times he inherited a recession but he sure did not take responsibility when it happened again in his term. You can’t change what you do not acknowledge, ergo Bush would have never corrected anything wrong in his administration. Now the same ones backing everything Bush did are the biggest whiners today.

    Human history has plenty of bad examples eversince the Rule of Man came in control in the early years of civilization. The animal kingdom seems to have done better. There’s no slavery, no political party nor religious membership yet, every specie is doing what they’re supposed to: whether they’re predator or pray, they survive on their on right according to their link in the food chain. Yet they manage,(unlike humans)to achieve results by mantaining the echological balance of every specie in their own turf unless -of course- MAN sticks his nose in. Are we learning yet? We’re suppose to do far better than animals whose means will never endanger the planet they live on. We do.
    We should be appreciative of the fact that we can think and make decisions based on common wisdom which benefit every single fellow human around us. So let’s go back to fundamentals and do what the Founding Fathers did when the United States of America emerged from the original 13 colonies, after breaking away from British rule. I’ve
    always hoped America would lead the world with its example. This is the greatest nation the world’s ever known! Unfortunatelly, the Goverment has grown too big and politicians are enjoying the best part, securing a lifetime of selfish existence in their political parties without doing their primary duty: WORK FOR US. No representative of the people should serve longer than necessary, the longer they stay in power, the more mistakes they make. Our vote will remind them of their sacred duty. Just think about this… which president will you vote for: the most popular or the most capable? Sometimes we have to look at their resume ,like an employer, since every politician in Washington is hired BY US. Campain words can’t be verified but words after the elections will certainly be as we look at the results of governing. Vote out the useless ones!

    • Claire

      If all the useless ones are voted out, there certainly won’t be anyone in Congress or the White House.

      • MO_50

        Sure there will be a New Congress, if you vote for candidates that believe smaller government, less spending, keep the lobbyist from influencing the legislative branch. Make those candidates accountable. We could use more elected officials like Gov. Christi in New Jersey.

        • Claire

          MO_50–There isn’t a politician alive that will do away with the lobbyists.

You can be sure they will try to polish up his image in a few yrs,and try to paint him as a war hero who brought peace to Iraq…of course they’ll ignore the part about him destroying Iraq first and murdering a couple hundred thousand innocents.

  • chucky

    If I told my boss at work that the reason for all of the losses we have incurred latley is the fault of the person who had the position before me almost 2 years ago, After he was done laughing he would tell me to pack up because You were hired to turn it around and when you took the position you assured me that this would happen. My prediction that the Democrats are going to do next is try to make Halliburton the big bad demon that caused the Gulf oil spill(be careful BP might ask for the 20 billion back if you put too much blame on Halliburton) and everytime they mention it on CNN,MSNBC,ECT. they will mention Chenney and Bush in the next breath. I hate to make this prediction but Hillary Clinton will probably be our next president, unless we repeal the 19th Amendment by 2012. LOL just kidding ladies

    • Denniso

      Someone wrecks your car…you have to fix it because he’s out the door…you work on the car but it’s such a mess you have trouble getting it right,all the while the guy’s buddies are telling you that you’re not doing a good enough job and that it’s your fault it’s not fixed anyway. Would that make any sense to any of you Obama bashers?
      I hope not,but you’re using the same reasoning in blaming Obama.

      • David

        denniso,
        Your analogy is apt. Here’s another one:

        When the Republicans were in power, they started the country on fire. Now that they are out of power, they have the nerve to complain about how much money the new fire department is spending on water to put it out. At the same time, they are stepping on the fire hoses, and thereby driving the water bill up even higher.

        When asked about their previous pyromaniac behavior, and the fact that they are not helping to put the fire out, they respond: “Did you know that some of these fire fighters are Muslims? Some of the fire fighters are also gay, and want to get married to other gay fire fighters? Did you also know that this fire department is a socialist conspiracy which seeks to ruin this country? Did you know that the fire chief wasn’t even born in this country?”

        When pushed hard by the press and asked what they would do to put the fire out, they responded: “We don’t know. Can we have our tax cut for the super rich now?”

        If the American people buy this con game again, they deserve what they are going to get. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

        • Denniso

          Good comment…it is rather amazing that a large % of the public is so easily fooled and some are willing to go backward to the same people and philosophy that caused the disaster we’re in. The public is famously fickle, but I still don’t think the Repubs are going to sweep in Nov….job numbers are up,the Iraq war is winding down,as Obama promised, and it’s still 2 months until the election. I predict that the Repubs will shoot themselves in the foot and at most capture one chamber. Dems need to get energized and realize the trsgedy it will be if they loose power.

  • bob555

    Denniso,
    First I want to remind you that the great Obama must not be thinking to clearly when he said something about 57 states in one of his speeches.
    Secondly your comment about Limbaugh is funny. The White House and the drive by media says he is irrelevant, don’t you listen to them? He’s a radio talk show entertainer, with an opinion just like anybody else on this earth. He makes no policy and holds no political office. He’s the same as say, Chris Matthews, Oberman or that Morning Joe guy, their radio or TV people. Do those guys influence the Democrats in office? Your man campaigned on Hope & Change, you know like doing things different than the last administration. The Bush record is there, BUT it finished 19 months ago. Seeing a lot of posts on this site and many other sites, I’m just wondering when THIS PRESENT administration is going to stop living in the past, and start the recovery, that “Summer of Recovery” Obama proclaimed. Its fall now, summers over and still no recovery in sight. The promise was pass the stimulus now and create work for shovel ready jobs. Why has the unemployment rate gone up recently? The stimulus was promoted as a jobs bill, to create jobs, but was then changed to created AND saved jobs. Just another spewing of BS for something that didn’t happen. Your man has control of Congress and all they have passed is a bunch of unpopular legislation. It’s time for a change in Congress with career politicians voted out, both parties and new thinking with the American peoples interest and welfare in mind.

      • Denniso

        Simple…the Repubs set the collapse up w/ lax or no regulation of the financial sector and Greenspan’s naive belief in libertarian economics. The Dems are now trying to save capitalism from itself and the Repubs childish beliefs, and the Repubs are only trying to make things worse so they can try to regain power, for power’s sake.

        • wayne

          Denniso, it was the Democrats, Old Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and one of the Democrats from New York, Shumer, I believe, that caused this financial collapse. You can’t blame the Republicans for this. This was played earlier in a Video what caused this meltdown. It was the collapse of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. You apparently did not view it, will not accept the truth, or your memory is short. In this video, Old Barney Frank said that everything was fine with the two organizations, meaning Ginni Mae and Feddie Mac. The Republications could see what was happening earlier in 2000 and wanted to make changes to keep the melt down from happening, but the Democrats blocked it. Since they blocked it, which made the economy collapes, I’ll call them block headed Democrats. Vote for the Conservative Republicans in Nov. to bring our country back from the abyss.

          • denniso

            Frank and Dodd were out of power during Bush’s terms until ’06 elections,so didn’t get back into power until the beginning of ’07…the collapse began in early ’08,so they hadn’t had much to do w/regulating Fannie and Freddie before the crash. Bush’s policy was
            to lay off of the financial sector and let the markets regulate themselves.
            Who ever was at fault,there is NO logic in blaming Obama for the mess
            that he is trying to remedy. Surely you’re smart enough to not believe that Obama wants to destroy the country and capitalism and become a dictator,unlike most of the people here…

          • Denniso

            Wayne…because you saw a video that says the Dems caused the collapse,then you believe that to be a fact? Did you wonder who made the video? Did you cross check w/ other sources,real journalists for instance? Did you do any independent research among neutral sources?

            No, I didn’t think so…you saw a video….

        Jeff– No doubt they made him an offer. It is disgusting. Horror of horrors. I can see it all now–any and every time Rahm gets mad at someone he sends them a dead fish. I best be careful–I may get a bunch of dead fish in the mail.

        • Denniso

          Claire…you don’t know that an offer was made. All you know is that Daley is not going to run again. And,if he was offered another job to step down so that Emanuel could run,so what? That’s politics and nothing illegal or morally wrong w/ that. It wouldn’t mean that the
          mayoral job is guaranteed,Emanuel would have to run for it against a Repub.

    • Jim H.

      Hi Claire, Another reason in the long list for Illinois to secede from the great state of Chicago.

      • Jeff

        Jim H., that was very good!

      • Claire

        Jim H–Good idea!! It would be wonderful.

    Who is Osama, I mean Obama to blame if not Bush. If President Bush is so almighty powerful, he would still be in office, just like FDR. The thing that President Bush is is thoughtful, compassionate, patriotic, and simply human. He did not pretend to be royalty or a tyrant. He tried his best to run this country in the right way. Can you imagine the response from our government if Gore had been president at 9/11? He would probably have handed our country over to the terrorists if they would promise not to do that again.
    I did not vote for Obama, not because I am a racist, simply because I believe it takes a lot of experience to be able to hold this country together and run it with intelligence and forethought, two things which Obama seems to be totally lacking, but then, he is still not dry behind the ears as the old saying goes. He sounds so much like a petulant child whenever he is speaking to the public that I normally just shut him off. I taught school for many years and heard enough of childish blather like “It’s his fault, I didn’t do it” and many other such carrying on and crying. I do not wish to listen to such from the presidential office.

    • namesake

      Did you ever hear of the 22nd Amendment? No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.

  • namesake

    Obama said, “We got here after 10 years of an economic agenda in Washington that was pretty straight forward,” Obama said in August. “You cut taxes for millionaires, you cut rules for special interests, and you cut working folks loose to fend for themselves. That was the philosophy of the last administration and their friends in Congress.”

    And Obama has special rules for Illegal Immigrants.

  • ELAINE

    TRUTH HURTS BUT ALL THIS IS BUSHS FAULT FOR NOT DOING HIS JOB AS A PRESIDENT HE SHOULD HAVE HAD RESTRICTIONS ON MANY A THING AND LOANS, BANKS, ETC WOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN OUTOF HAND THANK GOD FOR OBAMA HE’S DOING A GREAT JOB FOR WALKING INTO ALL THE DEFICT THAT WAS HANDED TO HIM FROM BUSH HE DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE TO WALK INTO A HUGH SURPLUS THAT CLINTON LEFT FOR BUSH AND HE BLEWIT ALSO THANK GOD FOR THE DEMS NOT GOING ALONG WITH HIS PRIVATIZING SOCIAL SECURTY YOU ALL WOULD HAVE LOST IT IN THE STOCK MARKET LIKE BUSH WANTED BRAIN DEAD BUSH AND SNAKE CHENNY SCREWED UP MY COUNTRY AND LEFT THEIR MESS BEHIND ,KILLED MANY OF OUR KIDS FOR INVADING A COUNTRY THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN MONEY WISE WASTED LIVES WASTED REPS ARE IDIOTS GREED AND FOR THE RICH OBAMA KEEP CUTTIMG BUSHS TAX CUTS TO THE RICH , YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • ELAINE

    YOU FOLKS DON’T BLAME CLINTON FOR ANYTHING WRONG FOR WHAT THOSE REPS PUT HIM THROUGH HE DID A HELL OF A JOB THIS COUNTRY WAS IN A HEALTHY SHAPE FOR 8 YRS OF PREZ CLINTON GREAT PRESIDENT AND HILLARY IS A GREAT WOMAN WE HAD A GOOD WORKING CLASS WITH CLINTON AND HE LEFT STUPID BUSH WITH ONE HELL OF A SURPLUS AND IF OBAMA COULD HAVE WALKED INTO PRESIDENCY AFTER CLINTON HE WOULD HAVE A GREAT START BUT HE WALKED IN AFTER THE STUPID COWBOY AGAINST THE LAW BUSH.

    • Jim H.

      Elaine, that’s because Clinton had a Republican Congress to keep him in line. That’s the ONLY thing that saved us from Clinton. After Nov. we may have a congress that will save us from Obama doing much more damage.

      Hi Elaine, OBAMA IS THE DUMBEST ROCK IN THE BOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Unlock the caps lock Elaine.

      • Denniso

        Whatever you think of Obama as president,it’s dumb to call him dumb…you know that.

        • Jim H.

          Hi Denniso, I was just satirizing The post above mine, by ELAINE. Is what ever Elaine thinks of Bush, is it dumb of her to call him dumb?

          • Denniso

            Hey Jim…no, what I mean is that no one questions Obama’s smarts, while there is plenty of room to question Bush’s. Even Bush’s supporters don’t rate him highly on intellect.

  • Right Wing

    Dumbasso is a liberal moron. Elaine is one of the stupid folk who follow Obama and his BIOB policy. He is a great leader for liberals because they all would sit around the rim of the treasury money jar, bitch about everyone who has an ounce of motivation, and throw money at the entitled masses in exchange for votes. I don’t know what kind of moral compass Dumbasso holds but from here it looks like the needle spins so fast he could easily fly to Paris. Which, incidentally is where he probably should go so he can bitch about America and fit right in with the other ungrateful french.

    • Denniso

      Thanks for the compliments…

      • kevster

        Denniso – I’ve read through this thread and you do exactly as your president does – BLAME SOMEONE ELSE. Just stop it already.

        If Obama was working for a private company he would have been fired a year and a half ago. You can’t lead when you’re blaming someone else. And if all focus is on blaming someone else does that not tell you the o’blamer doesn’t know how to handle the situation?

        EVERY TRUE leader fixes the problem and does not focus on blame! You must not know any leaders, true leaders and neither does o’bummer!

        You must be on some heavy medication to stay on this thread and actually think your continuing blame is making any sense to anyone.

        • Denniso

          First of all, being president is not like working for a private company. Secondly, if working for a private company was a requisite then Bush would have been a good president rather than an idiot who couldn’t speak or think. Thirdly, when someone screws up they should be held accountable…in a company, you fire them. In politics,they leave after 2 terms and retire to the ranch and ‘clear brush’,w/ no responsibility taken. If you people hadn’t tried to pin the blame on Obama then we wouldn’t have to remind you short term ‘thinkers’ that Cheny/Bush caused most of the problems we have now…simple enough for you to grasp?

  • ROSEBUD

    FYI, MOST OF YOU ARGUE OVER NOTHING.THE FACTS ARE WHAT COUNT & YOU HAVEN’T MENTIONED THE CAUSE OF OUR FINANCIAL CRISIS BEGAN WITH BILL CLINTON WHEN HE REINVENTED THE “COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT” IN ’93. HE FORCED THE FED TO LOWER CREDIT STANDARDS SO THAT POOR PEOPLE COULD OWN THEIR OWN HOME WITHOUT A DP. THE DEMONCRATS PUSHED HOUSING FOR THE POOR FOR YEARS INTO THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION WHEN HE NOTICED THAT FANNIE & FREDDIE WERE HEADED FOR TROUBLE, HE ASKED CONGRESS TO REIN THEM IN. THE DEMONCRATS, LIKE BARNEY FRANK, CHRIS DODD & MAXINE WATERS WERE COVERING FOR CEO OF FANNIE, FRANKLIN RAINES, FRIEND OF OBAMA. THEY ALL COVERED FOR RAINES WHILE HE KEPT TWO SETS OF BOOKS, FILLED THERI COFFERS & TOOK A$90 MIL BONUS FOR HIMSELF. THIS WHAT OBIE CALLS A “FAT CAT” BUT HE BLAMED WALL ST, WHEN IT WAS CONGRESS TO BLAME FOR PUSHING THE SUBPRIME MORTGAGE
    ISSUE. F&F BUNDLED THOSE LOANS & SOLD THEM OFF TO OTHJER BANKS, HEDGE FUNDS & UNVESTMENT INSTITUTIONS WORLS WIDE. AFTER F& F FAILED FIRST IN 2007, THE BANKS FOLDED WHEN THEHOUSING BUBBLE BURST. OBAM WORKED FOR ACORN AS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER SHAKING DOWN BANKS TO GIVE LOANS TO THE POOR ON THE SOUTHSIDE OF CHICAGO UNDER THREATS OF A LAWSUIT. YET HE HAS THE AUDACITY TO BLAME BUSH WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HOUSING CRISIS. THE CRASH IN 2008 CAME WHEN BUSH’S TREAS. SEC. HANK PAULSON CLAIMED THE BANKS WERE FAILING & THEY MUST BAIL THEM OUT OR THE COUNTRY WOULD FINANCIALLY COLLAPSE. THANKS TO THE DEMONCRATS INCLUDING OBAMA WHO WORKED AT IT PERSONALLY IN THE 90′S WITH ACORN.
    IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHO’S TO BLAME GO BACK TO ’93BILL CLINTON & HUD SEC. ANDREW CUOMO WHO PUSHED AFFIRMATIVE ACTION LOANS THROUGH FANNIE MAE & FREDDIE MAC. LOANS TO PEOPLE WHO HAD NO JOBS, ON WELFARE OR UNEMPLOYMENT. WHEN THE BANKS REMOVED THEM FROM THEIR HOMES THEY WERE STUCK WITH ABANDONED PROPERTIES IN DISREPAIR THAT CREATED BOARDED UP HOMES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THIS CREATED THE COLLAPSE OF ALL THE BANKS.
    PAULSON & BUSH BAILED OUT A FEW BANKS WHO HAVE SINCE REPAID THE MONEY. THE REST WAS LEFT TO OBAMA WHO USED THE MONEY TO TAKEOVER GM, FIRING THE CEO & GIVING 20% TO THE UNIONS. WE NOW OWN GM BECAUSE IT WAS OUR MONEY. GO GET YOUR CAR. THEN CAME THE $787 BILLION STIMULUS THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TO CREATE SHOVEL-READY JOBS, & THAT WENT TO THE GOVERNMENT & UNION ONLY JOBS. THEN CAME OBAMACARE WHICH RAISED RECENTLY PREMIUMS SO THAT THE 30 MILLION PEOPLE WHO WERE ADDED TO BE COVERED UNDER MEDICAID IS PAID FOR IN OUR PREMIUMS & THE CUTBACKS IN HEALTHCARE THAT WILL DEFINITELY LEAD TO DEATH PANELS. THEN CAME FINANCIAL REFORM BILL BY THE CROOK WHO DENIED THE BANKS HAD A PROBLEM, CHRIS DODD. THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS THAT APPLY TO F&F & THEY WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE LOANS TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T AFFORD THEM & WE WILL BE PAYING FOR PEOPLE’S HOMES FOREVER. HALF OF THE STIMULUS FOR THE UNIONS HAS BEEN SPENT BUT OBAMA WANTS TO SPEND ANOTHER $50 BILLION FOR MORE UNION JOBS IN INFRASTRUCTURE. DO I SMELL A RAT HERE? DO YOU THINK OBAMA HAS PAID BACK THE UNIONS YET? UNLESS YOU ARE A UNION MEMBER YOU WILL NOT GET A JOB. YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT AS PRIVATE BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY KILLED BY OBAMA. THIS IS THE WAY TO TAKE THE COUNTRY DOWN & CONTROL THE PEOPLE. SOON IT WILL INVOLVE YOUR HOMES, YOUR WAY OF LIFE AS WWELL OF YOUR WAY IN DEATH. OBAMA IS NOT A LIBERAL, HE IS A SOCIALIST BORN OF COMMUNIST PARENTS & RAISED BY COMMUNIST GRANDPARENTS. HIS MOTHER WAS FORCED TO MARRY A MARRIED MAN TO GIVE HIM A NAME BUT HE ABANDONED HIM AS A BABY. A CHILD BORN OF MUSLIM FATHER IS A MUSLIM. TO DENOUNCE YOUR MUSLIM FAITH MEANS DEATH. THIS IS WHY HE WON’T ADMIT HE IS.THIS IS AN EDUCATED WET BEHIND THE EARS COMMUNITY ORGANIZER WHO NEVER RAN A BUSINESS & HIRED A GROUP OF COMMUNISTS TO ADVISE HIM WHO ALSO NEVER RAN A BUSINESS OR MET A PAYROLL. DOES THAT MAKE MATERIAL TO RUN A COUNTRY. HE CAN BLAME BUSH ALL HE WANTS BUT THE FACTS ARE NOT THERE, BUT BUSH IS ONE OF TWO PRESIDENTS EVER TO HAVE AN MBA. HE RAN AN OIL BUSINESS, HE OWNED A SHARE IN A BALL CLUB & HELPED BUILD A STADIUM. HE MADE HIS MONEY WHEN HE SOLD HIS SHARE. HE WORKED IN HIS FATHERS ELECTION & SPENT MUCH OF HIS TIME IN THE WHITE HOUSE BEFORE HE BECAME GOVERNOR OF TEXAS. TELL ME HOW THAT COMPARES TO 160 DAYS IN THE SENATE? THE MAN WOULDN’T KNOW TRUTH IF IT HIT HIM IN THE FACE, HIS WHOLE LIFE IS ALIE, HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT REALITY IS BECAUSE HE LIVES IN A WEB OF LIES & COVER-UPS. GOD BLESS AMERICA & HOPE HE SAVES US FROM THIS DOOM!

  • Claire

    If a person wants to get technical (logical) I think we have all been “had” by all politicians, by both parties. One is no better than the other.

    • Denniso

      Claire…at their best, Dems fight for the working people and minorities. At their best, Repubs fight for big biz and corporations.
      Sure, there are flawed people and there is always corruption where ever you have human interest.

      • Claire

        Denniso–I know I expect too much. Corruption? Yes, and this is what I am tired of.

        • Denniso

          It’s the only political system we have and we have to do our homework
          to vote for the best people,and there are good people,but we can’t be led by rumor and smears.

          It’s a little like car salesman…some are better than others and many are corrupt,but we still deal w/ them.

    • MO_50

      Claire, you keep saying that. So what is your solution, to booting out all the politicians? At least, we have a system that allows us to vote. I only hope Our vote does really count. I think the election of 2008 was so manipulated. How far did the ACORN hand reach into the numbers. Can we honestly trust the election system, anyway? But that’s all we have for now?

      • Claire

        MO_50–I have to admit I do sound like a broken record. Yes, we do have a voting system, unfortunately I think there is a lot of corruption going on. For example, how in the world did Blago get re-elected? Manipulation–you can count on it. This is another reason why I am so disillusioned with the world of politics. I am glad Daley is not seeking re-election BUT now there is a possibility Rahm will be back in Illinois and I would be willing to bet he will be elected. It is situations like this that really turns me off.

  • http://donthaveone Beberoni

    When the guy got elected, by simply pointing fingers and placing blame, without so much as having to reveal who he was, what his plans are, or divulging any sort of action he would take, do you really think he is going to do it now? NO. He has no plans, and doesnt know what to do. So he goes back to the democrat playbook 101, which is to point the fingers at others and place blame, and deflect it from yourself. Unfortunately our press covers for him and let’s the democrats get away with murder.

    • MO_50

      Not to mention, WHY is he still campaigning? His blame Bush strategy is pathetic, now. Enough is enough, right? Is he going to continue that for the duration of his presidential service?

      Where and what is the “Change” he promised? I don’t know about you, but I feel a huge burden, from his change tactics. I don’t want to pay for clean air – instead, my household looks for ways to recycle and keep our space and community clean. I don’t his healthcare – instead I am doing all I can to keep my family healthy. I don’t want our taxes to be raised to pay for more spending- especially when I have cut so much corners in order to live more frugal in my house. I absolutely agree, the liberal media is just as much in fault.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        I hear you talking. Im sick of his hiding behind his finger pointing, and doing absolutely nothing except being a part of the problem instead of doing what he is paid to do, be a part of the solution. He is the great divider, not a unifyer, so he lied about that also. I have never seen a man cause more division between races and between social economic lines in my life. And Im sick of the left wing liberals green baloney. Im more green than Al Gore has ever been, and I fully believe in driving my car, heating my house with natural gas, and having a camp fire in my back yard whenever I feel like it. But I would never try to force someone to buy this and buy that, so that I can make a billion dollars, as Al Gore has tried to do. And the scary part is, he almost had government forcing it down our throat and making us pay him. Thank God he was not elected president. Only that could have been worse than what we have now. And soon, the elections of 2010 will render this guys moves helpless, then the rest of them get kicked out in 2012, and then the nation can start to recover, but not until then. The democrats will do everything they can to keep their power, including selling America to our enemies as they have been doing for these last 2 years.

      • denniso

        Mo thinks it’s OK to not pay for clean air as long as he recycles in his home…is that supposed to be a joke? He doesn’t value clean air enough to pay for it? Does he pay for everthing else? Home,car,food,water…clean air doesn’t rank w/ the other necessities?

  • MO_50

  • http://CenturyLink gloreyes

    President Obama could blame the former President as much as he likes,he is NOW the president,if he will not change course the way it is now—the ship is already sinking fast. He still has the power to right the wrong decitions he has been making. Pres.Obama listen to the voice of the people, for the voice of the people is the voice of God.Don’t let the people down. GOD BLESS AMERICA

    • denniso

      I pray to no god that Obama doesn’t listen to most of the voices on this site.

      And, who are the American people? Muslims,Christians,Atheists,Pagans,
      liberals,conservatives,wackos,old people,kids? Obama got elected lawfully w/ 53% of the vote, the largest mandate since LBJ…he ran on a progressive platform and won…you people had a fool and war criminal for president for 8 yrs…back off and let intelligence reign
      for a change.

      • Jim H.

        Hi Denniso, What do you expect this “no god” your going to pray to to do for us. I pray that God(Capitol G) Does listen to the voices and prayers of the people on this site. Even yours if you choose to talk to Him.

        • Denniso

          There are billions of people all over the earth praying to God for peace,health,wealth….does it appear to be working?

  • Jim H.

    Hi Denniso, He always answers mine, some times the answer is no. How about your “no god”? Working for you?

    • Denniso

      The answer to most people from your God is ‘no’. Why is that? Aren’t there many good,kind,innocent and saintly people praying for his help?

      My ‘no god’ is working quite well. A good life,secure,happy family,rewarding work and smart and very happy kid. My ‘no god’ is doing much better by me than most people in the world,where poverty and death and destruction haunt most of humanity…most of those poor,wretched people pray to God.

      • Denniso

        I forgot, the line,’pray to no god’ is from a song I wrote about a homeless former boxer living on the streets and ‘praying to no god to see the sun come around’, as he lies down on a park bench to sleep.

        • Jim H.

          Hi Denniso, If it’s working for you, more power to ya. I can’t answer why some times the answer is no, I really can’t answer for God. I just know in my life many time the answer is yes, just not all the time.

          • Denniso

            Thanks for the civil exchange. If your belief works and helps you w/ life,I’m glad. What I don’t like is when religions push their belief on others,often by using gov’t to force it into public life.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Jill

    He should be impeached for treason.

  • truesoy

    Look, regardless of what anybody’s political leanings are, the truth is the truth, and should be accepeted, Bush and his administration destroyed the economy of this country. For the first time since the american war of independence the United States had to borrow money from a foreing power, China, to conduct our present wars in the Middle East. Had a democrat president done such a thing the republicans would be rioting in the streets in front of the White House. The military budget for these wars was kept separate as not to show a deficit increased. The Obama administration brought it out into the open with the subsequent appearance of an increased in the deficit. Yes, we can blame ex-president Bush as the guilty party for he created this economic mess, and the republicans should accept that fact.
    On the question of wheather Obama could have done better for the economy the jury is still out; but it can’t be denied that what we’ve gotten so far is a lot better than we would have gotten otherwise had the republicans been in power. Lets put it this way: the conservatives want to give us more of the same they gave us for eight years, and that did not work before nor is going to work now.
    For our sake and the sake of our nation we should keep the republicans from the reigns of government for a few more years.

  • jopa

    The Bush administrations devastation to this economy still amazes me.It was wrtten last week that it cost the American economy three trillion dollars for the Iraq and Afghan wars and that does’nt cover the cost of re-hab for our troops.When Bush was put in office oil was $35 a barrel and now it’s at $85 and at $140 for a time.Should we forget about Bush I believe not.Now the republicans want to hand over social security to the fat cats on wall street to invest in their too easy to manipulate market. Have they no shame?For a few thousand dollars the republicans will sell there souls and your future.

    • Denniso

      The people who did very well under Bush are the oil companies,and many in the financial sector.

      • http://yahoo Angel

        Bush is the reason for the mess????? He let 9-11 happen and knew about it???? He let the rich oil people take over if not hen why did we have the mess. Why are the poor getter pooer and the rich getting richer??? since you know it all fix it????? WE can not aford to buy food so don’t complain to me and why are teachers getting laid off from a job????? A TEACHER???????

    • truesoy

      To piggyback on your comment, I also hope that the people remember in this election coming up, that when Bush was president we were paying between $4 and $5 a gallon of gas, and it will probably happen again, or worse, if we elect a republican congress.

  • jopa

    On another note , there are over 150 bills held up in the senate by Republicans through fillibuster.These bills would put more Americans back to work and also help with the economy.Why do they have a problem spending money on America but when it comes to Iraq and Afghanistan they will send trillions.The republicans did more damage to this country than any terrorist could hope for

    • Denniso

      Most Republicans are war mongers and will burn through any amount of $$ for war, while they cringe at spending relative peanuts for extended unemployment and other helpful programs in the worst recession since the Great Depression.
      Are Repubs only interested in war for the principals involved,or are most of them aware of their real motive…using tax $$ to help the armaments industry gorge at the public trough,w/ our tax $$.

  • Centerist

    John Myers, It is correct for Obama to blame Bush for the state we’re in, look at his track record. He has EARNED the blame. I can’t even imagine the shape we would be in with any Republican he ran against. You may be fed up with hearing “Blame Bush” but his administration is squarely where it belongs. As he said “History will be the judge”, it’s showing that he was absolutely incompetent.

  • http://???Google Lorraine Maiden

    Why is Obama still President? that is the question. He should have to prove his qualifications. Yet, those in line are Biden –then Pelosi.

    • Centerist

      Get over it, if qualifications were a REAL issue the Republicans in congress would be all over it. Even Boehner stays away from this kind of nonsense.

  • http://guy@reogiant.com guyb

    Look America,Lets get to the bottom line….If obama keeps sending radical imans around the world with tax payer dollars and he lets them speak on behalf of the American people and we do not stop him,then its our fault for voting him in and letting him break all of his big promises..Look,obama and reid and peeeelosi promised if we pass the almost trillion dollar stimulus bill then unemployment would not go over 8% and we would create many jobs and look where we are at now…. obama and reid and peeelosi could give back 50,000 jobs in northern california in one day by just turning the water back on to the farms in northern california and it would not cost us a dime….Oh,thats right,why does peeeelosi still get all the water she wants for her multi million dollar vineyards in northern california but the hard working farmers are jobless and standing in food lines…. America—WAKE-UP!!!!!! We have to vote reid and peeelosi out now…obama will be gone in 2012…….

    • Centerist

      Doubtful, Americans are frightened, they may not like the slow progress of recovery but see no answers from the other side of the isle. I think when it comes right down to it we want to vote for leaders with a direction not leaders who oppose everything and have shown no direction. Obama is calling the Republicans the party of “NO” and truthfully it seems to fit. No one likes the position we’re in but this administration didn’t get us here and honestly seem to be trying to get us out.
