Let's see what history has to say about your bullshit....

In case you are completely ignorant of what's in the Constitution, the president has nothing to do with how much the government spends. Congress controls all borrowing, spending and revenue. Perhaps you, and Obama, should read the Constitution at least once in your life.

The Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit. Since, the Democrats have exploded that declining deficit to 2.4 trillion dollars, a one thousand five hundred percent increase.
The Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, a total debt of 5 trillion dollars. Since, the Democrats have exploded that debt to 16 trillion dollars, more than triple what it was when the Democrats took control of it.
To make matters even worse, if that is even imaginable, we haven't had a goddam budget since we put a Democrat in the presidency.

Paul Ryan has something that is beyond what the Democrats are capable of. A goddam budget. The Democrats are so incompetent and idiotic, they can't even produce a budget even when they have a super majority in the Senate and dominant control of the House and also have the White House. I think the Three Stooges could have done better than that.
But, that makes sense. Every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an imbecile. In four years, Obama has submitted only 2 budget proposals. The sum total of votes for the Obama budgets is ZERO. That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH. Obama is so far removed from the real world, he couldn't get one vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus. Even they think Obama is a nutcase.
Yet, even after they throw all two of the four budgets Obama should have submitted into the shitcan, they put the one person they think is an idiot on the ballot for another term.

You can't get more insane than that.

Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security:'You Have To Prioritize Things'

For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million.

Obama gets low marks, with two-thirds of voters concerned about the administration's changing story on the consulate attack in Libya, where the country's military is seen ... taking weapons left over from last year's war.

America deserves to fail if Da Bammy is re-elected. Go ahead, suckers, vote for failure, then sit back and wonder what the hell happened.

Regarding Libya, he's either incompetent or a liar ... I say LIAR.

What the big problem is, is Republican Congressional obstructionism. The Teabillies who came to power in 2010 decided they were going to do every single thing they could do to stop the president. Why? Who really knows? Those folks are free market ideologues who want to dismantle the U. S. Department of Education for Christ’s sake. In a word, they’re IDIOTS.

Over and over through the RNC, we heard how Obama has done nothing. Actually, the bills the Obama Administration has sent to Congress, bills that could create jobs and actually turn a profit in government spending is getting longer and longer.

But the retards in Teabillyland won’t do anything. And the Republicans know this has happened. In fact, the Republicans planned for it to happen. Why? So they could gain power.

That’s right. Screw the American worker, we want power. That seems to be the Republican and Teabilly battle-cry. And for what?

For free market economics which have been proven not to work. Free market economics caused the 2008 downturn. Free market economics demands that the government quit “interfering” with the economy because the economy is pure and organic and touchy-feely-sensitive. Idiots.

I certainly hope the Democrats point this out over and over during next week’s Democratic Convention. The Republicans even met within hours of Obama’s 2008 presidential victory—all to plan his demise.

How patriotic is that? You’d think the Nazis had infiltrated the democratic process and are doing all sorts of damaging things.

Let’s get the Teabillies out of Congress. In fact, let’s get them out of America. Teabillies: Somalia-bound.

So has the number of people who lost their fulltime jobs and their health insurance.
Arguing back and forth concerning whether Obama is the fault of any of the economic problems,or not,doesn't really matter,because to many people,whatever problems that still exist at the end of the term of the present president,are always blamed on him. And like what has been the case in all other situations,when a black person does a job,they need to be exceptional,doing the job better than any white did it,in order to be held to any esteem,most of us non-whites know that from experiences in school,and on jobs.
Therefore,the way I see it,Obama was as a black man(he's not black,but biracial really),but anyway as a black man,he was lucky to get the votes of the whites,and other non blacks that got him elected,without those votes he would not have won.
And because he did not solve every single economic problem that we now face,he will not have the votes of those same white supporters,and therefore,he will not be re-elected,period,doesn't matter what he argues during these televised dabates with his contenders.

RIP: Supply-Side Unicorns

An underappreciated development in this presidential race is right under our nose: We are debating seriously about how — not whether — Mitt Romney will offset the loss in revenue caused by his proposed 20-percent across-the-board tax cuts.

How, not whether.

I think this is, as Joe Biden would say, a big f’n deal. It represents a clean break from the supply-side fantasies of Arthur Laffer, Jack Kemp, Larry Kudlow, and vice presidential candidate Paul “Macroeconomic Feedback” Ryan.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/rip-su...

But you could see a hangover of supply-side prestidigitation in the way the Bush tax cuts were defended in retrospect. Economist Bruce Bartlett rounded up a list of the most egregious apologias here. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s assertion is the most infamous:“There’s no evidence whatsoever that the Bush tax cuts actually diminished revenue. They increased revenue because of the vibrancy of these tax cuts in the economy.”(The Heritage Foundation’s Brian Riedl made a more modest claim:“Simply put, the tax cuts played a relatively minor role in the budget deficits.”)

An early sign of fiscal sanity arrived last year when former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s economic plan, with its assumption of robust five-percent annual GDP growth, was basically laughed out of town. Around the same time, National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson had an illuminating confrontation with Kudlow and other “magic unicorn” peddlers.“One can hope for growth beyond the trend line, but counting on it is something else.(And the something else it is is foolishness),” Williamson later wrote.

1) Dumbasswriter is too stupid to know that the Bush budget may have had a 160 billion deficit yet ignores that the debt run up was far greater. Then the dumbasswriter compares his budget deficit that year to the total deficit inder Obama. Talk about being stupid.

2) Show me the legislation the Democrats passed in 2007 that led us to this recession.

3) Paul Ryan voted yes yes yes to doubling the debt, unfunded tax cuts, unfunded wars, unfunded expansion to Medicare, record unfunded earmarks.

4) All that debt under Bush was under a budget. WTF

5) Bush started with no budget deficits, left office with over a trillion dollar deficit.

Thank God for it too. The thought of Obama unleashed for the past two years is disgusting and frightening. He was able to do an enormous amount of damage as it was. Thankfully, the rebuilding of America will begin in late January '13 when Pres Romney takes the oath of office and pledges to uphold the US Constitution, unlike Obama.

Obama is a blatant LIAR!!

Okay all you Obama lovers... read this. It is proof that the man is a complete liar and will do and say anything to get your vote.

After a natural disaster, FEMA steps in to provide funding to the affected communities. There is a law that states that for every 9 dollars the feds contribute, the local govt must cough up 1 dollar. There are times where disasters have been so bad that the govt votes to waive that required 1 dollar contribution. Hurricane Andrew and 9/11 are two of those times.

So, in June of 2007 Obama gave a speech at a university stating that the govt was prejudiced against Blacks because they made the people of New Orleans pay that 1 dollar when in the two above examples they waived it.

The FACT:

Just two weeks prior to that speech, there was a vote in congress to WAIVE THAT FEE for the people that were victims of Hurricane Katrina. Barack Obama was actually present for that vote. The vote PASSED by a vote of 80 Yays and just 14 Nays.

It's pathetic that Obama would blatantly lie to people like that. It proves that he will say ANYTHING to get people on his side.

The STINGER!!!

According to voting records. Obama was one of the 14 that voted AGAINST IT!!!

Now, what's that say about this man who you think is the country's savior? Think about it.

No, the current rate is 2.9% for self employed.

Under the ACA,income over $2590K would be taxed at 3.8% instead of the 2.9%.
