We had budgets under Bush yet we had deficits & doubled the debt.
WTF.
W battled the Clinton recession, 9/11 economic hit and the war on terror. In 2007, the budget deficit was reduced to 165 billion through economic growth. Democrats collapsed the economy with sub prime loans.

America gets it.

So you're using the change the subject ploy.
Why do you support the man that voted for doubling the debt under Bush & the policies that led is into this recession.
BTW, the re weren't 90 billion in green bailouts. Why do you insist in being so uninformed.
Why are you voting for someone has put us MORE in debt in one term, than any other admin ever has?

You have a problem with JOBS IN AMERICA, that allow for economic recovery?
You have a problem with innovative thinking that actually ALREADY implemented affordable healthcare options for EVERYONE--not just some?
You have a problem with someone who does NOT want to see any more Americans have to go abroad to fight directly in and amongst OTHER countries battles-expecting and striving instead--for peaceful solutions via alternate methods?
You have a problem with some actual American energy INDEPENDENCE, rather than relying on mid-east oil?
You think a smother-down EPA regime, apparently unable to cross platforms and work in NON-partisan ways, is acceptable, while life threatening fungal diseases, SLIDE through into the public, without any sort (or major LAPSE in) of regulatory FDA guidelines to ensure public safety-just to "keep prices" lower, is okay?

Well sorry Duh A vey, I guess we just see some things a little differently.

And that's the beauty of American DEMOCRACY. It's NOT based on Communism, "state corporatism" (as was HITLERS regime) or archaic strong arm tactics!

That is WHY we have elections--and are a nation- free- of Dictators!!!!

By now everyone has seen the photos of the US consulate in Benghazi, yellow in color with some, but not a lot of charring around the front entry and a couple of the windows. Did anyone see a fence or wall? Did anyone wonder why that building was so small, not much larger than some homes__far smaller than homes being discussed here today.
The security consisted of a couple of Libyans with cell phones?
Yet Ambassador Stevens was in that place alone? Alone? The two Ex-Seals who died were at the annex. So who exactly was so concerned about security that no precautions of any kind were taken? None Nada Zip!
Stevens could have gone to the annex__he could have gone to the main embassy in Tripoli, he could have done any number of things if he was truly in fear. But he did nothing__nothing discernible to evade or escape the well known danger.
CNN entered the building in less than 72 hours and recovered the ambassador's journal__the FBI didn't reach the building for another 72 hours citing security concerns.
Issa, already 0 for 3 will get to the bottom of it all eh?
The important thing is Obama still got a good night's sleep, readying him for his Vegas fundraiser the next day.

You on medicare now?

Are you really poor or what is you issue, communist beliefs? It's obvious you have a 'Money issue. Just curious why you use money in a negative way.

I don't expect you to be honest, but do suspect you hate/resent people who have more than you do.

Umm, maybe you need to watch Fox news so you get the truth instead of propoganda.

If you did, you might know that the Chief Justice and all of the liberals on the Supreme Court rules Obamacare imposes a tax, which was why it was upheld.
