Barack Obama, our next President

To the annoyance of the Romney campaign, members of Washington’s reality-based community have a habit of popping up to point out the many deceptions in the campaign’s blue-sky promises of low taxes and instant growth.[...]
Even Fox News isn’t buying it. Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the Romney campaign, said on Fox News Sunday that Mr. Romney would work out those details later with Congress. As the program’s moderator, Chris Wallace, pointed out, that’s like offering voters the candy of a 20 percent tax cut without mentioning the spinach they will have to eat.[...]
It is increasingly clear that the Romney tax “plan” is not really a plan at all but is instead simply a rhapsody based on old Republican themes that something can be had for nothing. For middle-class taxpayers without the benefit of expensive accountants, the bill always comes due a few years later.

Blaming Obama for George W. Bush’s ... blah... blah... blah...
So whatever caused the 2007-9 recession had to have resulted from policies that the Bush administration was responsible for – either by initiating them or failing to act against them.
Space prohibits a full discussion of these issues, but certainly one factor had to be the squandering of budget surpluses that resulted from the policies of the Bill Clinton administration and their replacement by huge deficits under President Bush.
... blah... blah... blah...
Let's take off the horse blinders the Democrats like to put on the American population and look at the real world situation.

"So whatever caused the 2007-9 recession...."
Answer: the Democrats' lunatic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy.

"...had to have resulted from policies that the Bush administration was responsible for...."
Bipartisan effort to include the Democrats' demand for no effective oversight of their ludicrous subprime housing mortgate underwriting program that collapsed our economy, combined with Democrat oversight of the very financial institutions that caused the economic collapse for two years immediately before the collapse.

"...either by initiating them or failing to act against them."
Here is a link to inform you of the Democrats' negotiating position when they were negotiating with the Republicans:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...

Barney Frank - " I worry, frankly, that there's a tension here. The more people, in my judgment, exaggerate a threat of safety and soundness, the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury, which I do not see. I think we see entities that are fundamentally sound financially and withstand some of the disaster scenarios."

... and "I do think I do not want the same kind of focus on safety and soundness that we have in OCC [Office of the Comptroller of the Currency] and OTS [Office of Thrift Supervision]. I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing."

OFHEO Director Armando Falcon Jr - "OFHEO [Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight] did not improperly apply accounting rules; Freddie Mac did. OFHEO did not try to manage earnings improperly; Freddie Mac did. So this isn't about the agency's engagement in improper conduct, it is about Freddie Mac. Let me just correct the record on that. I have been asking for these additional authorities for four years now. I have been asking for additional resources, the independent appropriations assessment powers."

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.)- " I am just pissed off at OFHEO because if it wasn't for you I don't think that we would be here in the first place."

So, here you have the potential disaster to our economy identified as early as 2003, and the Democrats pushing harder for this obviously dangerous program to be expanded.

Now, let's compare the timelines of the Republicans giving to the Democrats their wish for no effective oversight of their insane subprime loan program that ultimately collapsed our economy after 2 years of oversight by Democrats to the timeline of the Democrats being for the Iraq operation before they were against it.

.... damn. Looks like the Democrats traded their (temporary) support for the war effort for no effective oversight of their subprime program that collapsed our economy after 2 years of oversight by the Democrats.

You've forgotten "keel hauled" in a very big hurry.
Though I must say you always have the best wingnut posts of any of the wingnuts. At least every time some other wingnut sends you an email.
You forgot to put content into your post. I'll help you. Here's the post again.
There are a lot of statements in the post. Pick any out and argue your case.
You got your ass kicked from here to Baku the last time you tried to promote the lies the Democrats invented.

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.

DELAWARE, Ohio - Two law enforcement officials were injured in a crash while part of a motorcade escort for First Lady Michelle Obama on Monday.
According to the Delaware County Sheriff's Office, the motorcycles crashed at about 4:15 p.m. along U.S. Route 36/ state Route 37 and South Old State Road.
It was unknown if the motorcyclists collided or were struck by another vehicle.
One Genoa Township police officer and one Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper were transported to Grant Medical Center in Columbus with unknown injuries.
Michelle Obama spoke at about 2:45 p.m. at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware.
U.S. 36/S.R. 37 was backed up because of the crash.
Obama was not injured in the crash, and her motorcade continued on after the crash.

Convoluted.

So are you saying that when F&F cooked the books, during Bush, that it was the Dems fault?

And that after Bush's 2002 'we need to make sure by any means possible that every American owns a home' speech that the sub prime market didn't expand 10 fold? And that it was never an issue until 2007?

The Fiscal Legacy of George W. Bush

Republicans assert that Barack Obama assumed sole responsibility for the budget on Jan. 20, 2009. From that date, all increases in the debt or deficit are his responsibility and no one else’s, they say.

This is, of course, nonsense – and the American people know it. As I documented in a previous post, even today 43 percent of them hold George W. Bush responsible for the current budget deficit versus only 14 percent who blame Mr. Obama.

The American people are right; Mr. Bush is more responsible, as a new report from the Congressional Budget Office documents.

According to Lou Dobbs: since 1971, over 1000 Chicago politicians have gone to jail.
....
How the ‘Chicago Machine’ Operates
The ‘Chicago Machine’ modus operandi could be summarized by the following:
To merge the collective interest of the three largest ethnic groups in the City;
To use its voting base to guarantee political representation;
To ensure political participation (and order) through a highly ***regimented*** and organized system of neighborhood ombudsmen (also known as ward bosses, committeemen, and councilmen)
Many people hear the term,‘Pay for Play’ and assume that it is always an overt attempt to bribe someone for political access. While we see from Rod Blagojevich’s indictment that those egregious examples of greed exist, it is important to understand that a Pay for Play scheme rarely results in the direct exchange of cash for a favor.
Unbeknownst to the average citizen,‘Pay for Play’ is seen most commonly through the allocation of city, state, and federal contracts.
When it’s all said and done, it’s difficult to foresee if the way things are done will change much in this city. Geographically located to broker commerce, demographically suited to maintain its formidable political identity, and forever tied to its legacy of patronage, most are not waiting in expectation for the city to become a poster child for a transparent government.

Obama, et al, claimed for a month that the consulate, as well as other US sovereign soil was attacked because of a movie, knowing full well their dead ambassador had been threatened and the consulate had been recently attackedby terrorists. The prez, vp, SofS, and UN ambassador repeated the bogus story to the world, and apologized for the video maker exercising his 1st Amendment right.
What we learned with Watergate is it isn't the crime, it's the cover up. Obama is a dangerous and dishonest individual. Ethically, he makes Nixon look like an eagle scout, economically and leadership wise, he makes Carter look like a Rhodes scholar.
