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.
How many trillian is Obama leaving office with?

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.

<quoted text>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.
He will also be losing votes from blacks who are not voting based solely on race and believe me, there are some. It looks like you belong to the race baiting crowd. This election is about who is a better leader to the vast majority of people.

You are way off base. Are you a Liberal Democrat?

you didn't answer the question....how much would the tax be???...
The revenues can come from many areas. It does not need to be a medicare tax. They could have also paid for it through spending cuts.

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.

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.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/10/jaso...
The embassies in Sweeden, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, Austrailia, etc., etc., etc. don't need as much security as they had. The embassy in Libya, for example, should have received more security while the embassy in Switzerland should have received less.
You're an idiot.

wrong, Dumbass Dave....the 3.8% tax is on income not previously taxed for Medicare purposes.....
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%.

What "idiot" could possibly consider changing the wonderfully productive state of public education?

Maybe someone who doesn't care about the government's powerful and influential connection with teacher's unions and their combined indoctrination of our children?

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.

This week, Mitt reiterated one of his most expensive and longstanding political panders—a commitment to increase military spending to 4 percent of GDP—adding at least $2 trillion to federal spending over 10 years.

The audacity of the etch-a-sketch meant that this specific budget-busting promise was so big that it almost went unchallenged—and certainly it hasn’t yet reached the level of mainstream, Main Street debate.

But let’s put it this way—a million dead Big Birds wouldn’t begin to compensate for this new expense. In fact, it single-handedly invalidates every specific cut he has proposed—which essentially consists of social conservative low-hanging fruit like “eliminating Title X Family Planning Funding”($300 million), reducing foreign aid ($100 million), privatizing Amtrak ($1.6 billion) and reducing “Subsidies For the National Endowments for the Arts And Humanities, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, And the Legal Services Corporation ($600 Million). And of course, we can’t forget the pricetag placed by the Romney campaign on the not yet fully-implemented Obamacare ($95 billion). You do the math.

Even if you believe Mitt on the magically paid for, completely painless $5 trillion tax cut, adding in this specific commitment to spend more than ever before on our military puts us on the path to further future deficits.

Maybe next time the Republicans cut security funding they should take all of that into consideration.

Obama never had a clue about what was happening in government. His assigned function is to do what he's told to do, and in payment he'll be allowed to ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train.
It's obvious he didn't have a clue what was in Porkulus, QE, the health care legislation that erroneously has his name attached to it,... he doesn't need to know what's going on in government to fulfil his part of the bargain. All he has to do is read from a teleprompter what is being written for him.
We don't have a president today.

Oh please.

Indoctrination?

Indoctrinate your children at Tea Party summer camp!

If there’s one thing conservatives enjoy more than accusing liberals of doing the horrible things that conservatives actually do, it’s imitating the horrible things they have convinced themselves that liberals do.
