... and that explains how the Republicans turned over all the purse strings of the government to the Democrats in January, 2007, and a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit; and the Republicans turned over to the Democrats a total debt of 5 trillion dollars to the Democrats in January, 2007.
What have the Democrats done to that deficit since?
Did you say they increased it by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT?
And what have the Democrats done to that total debt since?
Did you say they more than tripled it to the 16 trillion dollars it is tocay?
And what kind of plan do the Democrats have to reverse the economically suicidal course they put us on in January, 2007?
Did you say the Democrats don't even have a plan?
Did you say we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office?
Did you say the only two budgets Obama submitted to Congress in the 4 years he's been in office couldn't get even one goddam vote in the entire Congress?
Wouldn't you conclude after being informed of these facts that every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot?
So, please tell us why the Democrats in Congress think Obama is a nutcase and they still put him on the ballot to run for another term.
The CBO just said you are an idiot.

Where is that list of legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this mess.

I keep asking. You keep running.

Bush had budgets. He doubled the debt, created the worst recession in 80 years, a near financial meltdown, a housing collapse & two quagmire wars.

To listen you your constant whining about budgets, I would think the Bush Budgets would have had some sort of super power & prevented it.

Radiation Alert:

Common Household Items We All Use Found to be Contaminated

Governments Have Raised Acceptable Radiation Levels Worldwide to Dupe the Populace

It is clear that, despite a large scale misinformation campaign conducted by various governments and sock puppets throughout the internet, an increase in radiation has been seen in the United States after the Japan Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Recently kitchenware shipped to a port in Canada from India was found to be contaminated with radiation common for use in the medical field.

This is alarming as radioactive materials are now being melted down and added to products that humans use to eat with or have very close contact to.

The mainstream media is finished with Fukushima, but it seems Fukushima isn’t finished with us. A couple of irradiated fish captured near the inoperative nuclear plant showed 25,800 becquerels of caesium per kilo—258 times the level determined ‘safe’ by the government.

Of course there is no ‘safe’ level of radiation, and food contaminated with high amounts of radiation can be especially dangerous.

Not too long ago, it was found that radioactive food (food contaminated with radiation from Fukushima or others sources), is actually comparable to receiving hundreds of X-rays.

However, Fox News reported that Japan’s government said the seafood is safe to eat early on, demonstrationing how governments worldwide are willing to lie even if their populations is at risk.

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that high-level friends in the State Department told him that Hillary Clinton signed a pact with her counterpart in Japan agreeing that the U.S. will continue buying seafood from Japan, despite that food not being tested for radioactive materials.

Note: You can view a series of documents released under the Freedom of Information Act that prove, without a shadow of doubt, that numerous government agencies participated in a large scale cover up of the radiation that hit the United States from Fukushima.

The climate has been warming since the last ice age began to subside, you ignorant idiot.
And, how about you reference all the fraudulent "science" by your so-called "climatologists" that was blown out of the water by real scientists.
So, please tell us how we can prevent the Earth from warming. How are you going to stop the warming that has been constant for over 10,000 goddam years?
The Earth was without ice previously. It will be without ice again. It's a natural process. Get used to the idea, dupe.

You're right, all of those business leaders are not there to serve the good of society. They should all outsource to other countries because that will probably be a better bottom line.

If the US did not know who he was, why did we eek his help in WWII?
You seem to have a serious problem reading and comprehending the English language. Where in the hell did you get from the post that the US didn't know who he was? I suppose that "variable truth" rule from Saul Alinsky kicked in...

Here's the post again. This time, don't invent content that isnn't there.

Ho Chi Minh didn't become a concern until he asked the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French after he went to Paris and asked them to come back to Veitnam. The Soviet Union used this as an opportunity to expand their influence during the Cold War. He didn't become significant until the Soviet Union was supporting his invasions of South Vietnam. If he never invaded South Vietnam, he'd be about as significant as some other small-pond bullshit dictator with too big of an ego in the world.
Listen carefully to this. This is the key ingredient to understanding the US involvement in Vietnam:
As the Soviet Union increased its involvement in the invasions of South Vietnam, the US increased its involvement in the defense of South Vietnam.
That means the US involvement didn't become significant until after Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Let's say that again:
Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Immediately after the UN authorized the creation of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh began invading South Vietnam.
This is exactly like how the proxy war in Korea started.
Now, idiot, here's the key:
As the Soviet involvement in the communist invasions of South Vietnam increased, the US involvement in the defense of South Vietnam increased.
US involvement didn't become direct until AFTER the UN divided the country.
The Soviet Union involvement was already at a significant level prior to this. In fact, as I told your ignorant ass previously, the communist used Soviet weapons at the battle of Dien Bien Phu, which was before the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries.
The Cold War is a global war.
The Soviet Union is engaged in Vietnam.
The communists divide Vietnam into two countries.
The communists begin invading free South Vietnam.
The US assists South Vietnam.
The strategy of the United States during the Cold War was not to abandon our allies and run away.
You seem to be ignorant of all of this.
As for Nixon winning the war, the war was all but over in 1970 when the NVA ran away to avoid destruction when the US forces entered the Parrot's Beak in 1970. They waited until US ground forces left Vietnam in 1971 to launch the largest communist invasion of the war. They were defeated by the South Vietnamese WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS.
Now, I want you to begin your next post with one of the lies in the system of lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam:
"The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themselves."
Then tell us about how the communists defeated the South Vietnamese in 1972 when they mounted the single largest invasion of the war, the Easter Offensive of 1972.
... got a problem, don't you....
It seems the single largest invasion of the war wasn't successful, and there is no history of any US ground combat units fighting against the communists.
Was it aliens from space that beat the communists?
Or, was it the South Vietnamese?
Now, tell us how the Democrat-controlled congress of 1973 helped the ally of the United States after they defeated a massive communist invasion during the Cold War.

Predicting Tonight’s Debate if Obama gets “aggressive:”

Candy Crowley: Welcome to this Town Hall-style forum, featuring the winner of the first debate, Mitt Romney, and Barack Obama, who promises to be less polite and more aggressive. The first question comes from a man with a ponytail.

Ponytail Guy: Mr. President, can I sit on your lap and will you tell me everything is going to be OK?

Obama: You can sit on my lap, certainly, but don’t try to sit in Mitt’s. He’s got some crazy underwear on under there.

Crowley: Gov. Romney, your rebuttal?

Romney: I was just thinking about a man who sat in my lap in the suffering swing-state town of Sandusky, Ohio. He said he’d been out of work for two years, and as I held him, I told him what I’ll tell you right now (and nice ponytail, by the way): Everything will work out as long as I win in November, but if I don’t, all the laps in the world won’t save him or you.

Obama: Did you say Sandusky, Ohio? Mitt, you want to do to America what Sandusky did to those boys!

Or, you can ride a broke back mule.
Your choice.
They were. That 90 billion Romney & Ryan lie about contained billions to push energy saving home & business improvements. Helps thousands install panels, windmills, geothermal, insulation, etc.

It included money to help in the goal of cleaner coal.

It had money to improve the grid.

You know, stuff Romney said was a waste of money.

Predicting Tonight's Debate if Obama is even awake:

Crowley: The next question comes from a teacher.

Teacher: As a teacher responsible for molding the minds of precious young people, my question is what will you do to make sure I pay nothing for my health care and get more vacation?

Crowley: Gov. Romney?

Romney: I have a seven-point approach on these matters. I’ll now enumerate them so quickly you won’t be able to remember what I said but you’ll be impressed by how substantive I am.

Obama: I want 100,000 more teachers with 100,000 more vacations and 100,000 percent freer health care. If we hire those teachers, that will bring the unemployment rate down to 5 percent — you hear that, Bureau of Labor Statistics? Five Percent. On Nov. 2. at 8:31 am.

It makes no difference. Global oil market does not distinguish the source of the oil. Price will not change.
Money crossing our borders has the same effect on our economy regardless.
Not buying from friendly sources in the Middle East & other friendly non-North America sources would damage those relationships.
Oh geez...I guess you aren't purposely trying to emulate the stereotypical portrait of left wingnutedness tree hugging.
