I think that as long as we don't get Republicans in there, the deficeit will go down. It will go down faster if we get less Republicans in Congress. Now I am going by recent history so what tea leave are you going buy.
Obama/Biden 2012
That is one reason the GOP's in Congress have not wanted to pass Obama's legislation. He is spending too much money. The GOP wants to reduce the deficit, not increase it. Go back and look through history. Dems have always spent more than Reps.

And if Obama wins another 4 years, who is to say that the national debt wont go beyond 20 trillion? And what about the Biden factor? he would be in a position to run for President in 2016. Do you think Joe Biden can dig us out of 20 plus trillions dollars in debt? What about protecting our national security? he laughs at everything now as it is. Lies too just like Obama.
"Are You Kidding" is right. Any time Obama refuses to accept responsibility for his failures, an Obama troll blames Romney and the Republicans rather than just admit that he does not have the skills to dig us out financially. If someone else has the ability and the willingness to try, then step aside and let him try to help.
Thank you! Getting these people to understand what is REALLY happening is like talking to a wall!

why not bomb the crap out of Al Qaeda in Benghazi using carrier-based combat jets....
Why not get the hell out of of the world's business and come home. You don't hear a 100 other nations around the world always in some type of battle or war. Our neighbor to the North is just fine without sticking their nose in the world affairs. America is only 4% of the world population but wants to rule the other 96% just like Hitler.
33 wars since WWII. Where's all this BS Democratic freedom we have spread around the world? We go in and bomb 33 nations and then wonder why the world hates America.

In Benghazi timeline, CIA errors but no evidence of conspiracy
A detailed CIA timeline of the assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi paints an anguishing picture of embattled Americans waiting for Libyan security forces who didn’t come and courageous CIA officers who died on a rooftop without the heavy weapons they needed, trying to protect their colleagues below.
It’s a story of individual bravery, but also of a CIA misjudgment in relying on Libyan militias and a newly formed Libyan intelligence organization to keep Americans safe in Benghazi.
While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, there’s no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.
The CIA is now reviewing its security plans around the world to make sure the agency isn’t relying on shaky local forces. This is a difficult task because the United States has vulnerable arrangements in dozens of places.

Don't get me wrong. The Benghazi thing was horrible. I know it, you know it. Mistakes were made.
My point dear, is that the entire Iraq war was a useless fiasco, brought on by a Republican administration. They thought that they had ALL the answers. Turned out they were wrong. Wasteful. Think for a minute about the thousands of people that lost their lives.
You have made some mistakes, in your personal life? We as people are not infallible.
Mistakes?!?! Ignoring requests for assistance from people who are facing death is NOT A MISTAKE!, my friend. It is blatant arrogance and incompetence, things that this President is famous for.

There will be blood coursing in torrents down the streets the first day, you'll have to wade through it to get to 7-11, and platoons of cops will be slaughtered indiscriminately. You think he doesn't know this? You think Congress doesn't know this?
Don't believe everything you read, chicken little. That email has been circulating for two years, and gun shows have since been doing a HUGE and thriving business. Our guns aren't going anywhere, and the military isn't about to turn on citizens. Mass desertion will become the order of the day.
He and Congress know that too.
None of these things happened when they confiscated guns in England. Never underestimate the power of the U.S. Government or U.N. forces.

Obama believed his policies made the Muslim world, if not love us, at least see us as a friend of the downtrodden Muslims, hence the lax security at embassies and consulates. Armed Marines with
M-4s pointed towards the Muslim citizen didn't fit the Kumbaya image that Obama tried to project to the nation and the world. Bin Laden was taken out via intelligence gathered by policies implemented under George Bush.Obama just happened to be in office when bin Laden was found and according to the highly decorated former SEAL, Chris Kyle , the most lethal sniper in American history, Obama didn't make the call.Other former SEALS agree.
Another right winger passing along DB's lies like a baton on a relay race. It was House Republicans who cut funding for diplomatic security moron. They cut $128 million from the administration's request in fiscal 2011 and $331 million for fiscal 2012. GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Rep. Darrell Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.
Bush never put much effort into getting Bin Laden because he was too valuable as a bogeyman to trot out at opportune times. He even stated;
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02
Obama during the 2008 campaign stated on several occasions that he would take Bin Laden out which he did.
Chris Kyle never stated that Obama didn't make the call liar. Only the Commander in Chief has the authority to sign off on an operation of that magnitude.
You're an idiot.

There is absolutely nothing in the U.S. Constitution that mentions anything at all about abortion. I find it interesting that nobody I have ever met who is pro-abortion was ever aborted themselves.
