@duhRAT "Hitler ran on a platform of Demonizing J*ws "

RAT repeatedly violates Godwin's First Law of the Internet by mentioning 'Hitler'.

But, I knew Godwin personally 20 years ago (from a distance) and he was/is an even bigger POS than RAT....so I'll give him a pass. Besides I find myself wanting to march when I hear the Horst Wessel Lied.

If he is a true leader then he should lead first by example. He should have been sworn in 2nd time with No Fan Fair, Forget the balls and dinners; parades say thanks it’s now time to go to work. Save the money put it back into the cougher. A true leader leads by example not by just words. It’s pretty simple we need to establish our industry base again start manufacturing open up business put people back to work. We need to step up and be the best again. I believe if you pay someone now a fair wage and give him or her benefits to take care of their families that would be the sale to start. We need to bring back the pride of our country Made In America.

Boxer, I'm curious about the phrase "so-called national debt". Is it imaginary or a fiction of some sort?

While spending during the Bush era was certainly no high-mark (9/11, Katrina, Iraq/Afghanistan, Seniors Drug deal), the Clinton era Repubs were the foundation of that time period's fiscal responsibility. Accompanied by the dotcom bubble and a "peace premium", Clinton worked well w/ that group to bring about a period of fiscal sanity. I don't see a return to that type of collaboration anytime soon!!

Republicans always use the so-called national debt as their favorite hammer. They bang away joyfully with their blunt object, their eyes all wild and reddened.

But did you notice how they handled the "debt" as soon as George Bush took over from Bill Clinton? It was a classic example of greed.

The Republican congress immediately ramped up spending for all the hometown projects of the Republican representatives and senators. Immediately and unabashedly, as if a long pent-up frustration finally had an outlet.

That is how Republicans handle themselves when they are guarding the henhouse.

oldman, there you go again with the “fy2009 historic tables U.s. govt. 2.1 and 8.1” babble. LOL

There WAS NO CLINTON SURPLUS. US Treasury DATA (not projection BS like oldman and the liberals regularly spew) show the National Debt went UP every Clinton year.

Keep telling the lie if you want, libbies. We’ll keep LOLing at your foolishness.

Obama beat Romney over the head with taxing the rich. The stupid republicans should have let him do it two years ago and took that away from him but no to stupid they do it after they lose. Obama could not say one good thing about what he did so he lied and tore Romney down. Like China Building Jeeps the Media said it was a lie but now they are building there most modern factory in China. I hope they take all welfare away.

Liberals will continue to believe the Obama Administration's lies until the real pain touches them personally. Fortunately for conservatives, the makers will be prepared and experienced at providing for themselves, and it will be the takers who suffer most. Libbies, just remember, when the Government’s redistributionist vote-buying wealth-spreading Ponzi scam finally collapses, you built that. Enjoy the riots, libbies.

"Not only has the president cut the deficit by $312 billion during his first term (so far), but he's cut the deficit by $200 billion in the past year alone."

<----- This is perhaps the BIGGEST LIE perpetuated by Obama!! There has been NO deficit reduction!! There may be a fictional lessening of projected spending but NO reduction in debt. Conflating deficits w/ debt is an old trick!

According to the White House dot gov site Federal spending in 2008 was $2.98 Trillion. $3.51 Trillion in 2009, $3.79 Trillion last year and project to be $4.5 Trillion in 2017. Our Federal debt was $10.62 Trillion the day Obama took office, $16.43 Trillion as of Friday and projected to be $21.35 Trillion by 2017!!

The TRUTH that should be told to every American is that there is NO reductions and we are heading for disaster!!!

impact “Osama's dead...”

... and yet we’re STILL fighting in Afghanistan. More American troops have died in Afghanistan under Obama’s four years than under 8 years of Bush.

... and yet Guantanamo is STILL open. Four years after Obama promised you it would close.

... and yet we’re now fighting NEW Middle East wars under your Peace Prize President. Ambassador and diplomatic staff DEAD in Libya, followed by Obama’s pathetic attempt to cover that up. Drone wars in Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan... Where’s the outrage, libbies? Where’s Code Pink?

mmm mmm mmm, its all good

there's one that can't think. "the market is soaring" Yes because of the Fed's money...sure it will continue to "soar" until the Big Crash that is coming soon to this country because of the Govts. policy.Your stocks may be worth 10% of what they were.Look over your shoulder in the mirrow. You might see Greece. Sorry to be the bearer of good/bad news, but the USA won't survive in present form with present leadership.
