So, these 2 conservative fetuses are floating around in some chicken broth inside a crock pot (which is starting to get nice and toasty), and one says to the other, "so, what does it cost to have one of these things installed if you tile it yourself?"
You know what a crock pot is....I'm impressed ...most people in your state think its something you take a dump in...

Some people paint with a wide brush but you shovel sh*t with a Snow Shovel in each hand.
If you have something specific to say, draw a highlighting line in circular fashion around an item, give a link supporting your contention regarding it and let the comparison begin.
But squawking like an angry bird at Thanksgiving time, throwing out a link full of ten thousand sub-links and then saying "Now go play" means what??
It means you deal in generalities that can be interpreted ten thousand ways by ten million people. Cute.
You said Paul Ryan had no voting record.I gave you a link.

You said you did not believe that link.

I said to take whatever vote you did not believe & compare it to the vote on the Congressional site listing every bill & corresponding vote.

Now you come back with this crapola.

Paul Ryan voted yes to both Bush unfunded tax cuts taking us off the ph of balanced budget& adding to the debt. He voted for the unfunded Medicare expansion. He voted with Bush.

You can hide from this all you want.

But Paul Ryan is a big government,bog spender as his record indicates.

Sorry OP.. We gave Bush eight years to bring this country to it's knees.....I'll give Obama eight to fix it.... Remember Oct 2008. Your village idiot was still in office then. Of course we all blame Bush. Everybody with half a brain knows better. Even Bush knows what he did, why do you think he's been in hiding for the last 4 years?
Not to mention staying completely the hell out of several foreign countries...

in early 2001. the CBO predicted that by 2012 we would have amassed a 5.6 trillion surplus.
In going through as to what changed this, the Bush tax cuts were part of the Bush policies that claimed nearly 40% of the reason. Obama's policies claimed only 10%.
Unfunded tax cuts while expanding government & at a time of war was indeed a major factor.
What a load of horsecrap, you still going to deny 9/11 ever happened? Still going to deny the democrat authored mortgage disaster was going to happen? Even 8 years of the same Clinton tax rates could only have produced app.$560 Billion dollars, the CBO and their[yours}$5.6 trillion dollars surplus is a pipe dream.

Clinton benefited from 2 things, the dotcom boom and Newt Gingrich and a republican congress. The dotcom boom ended in app. 2001.

I will give you credit for actually posting a sensible argument for the first time I've ever seen.

I have never excused the avaricious assholes on Wall Street, from both parties, for their role in the mortgage meltdown, but no liberal has ever even tried to convince me that without the subprime mortgages there couldn't have been derivatives , dishonesty, shady deals and financial chicanery on Wall Street.

No subprimes, no derivatives.

There are no government funded abortions. I'm sure your surgery was likely covered under your insurance policy.
Your contraception is covered as part of the insurance policy you buy. As well are abortions if you CHOOSE to have one.
Are you aware investigators in several large cities called PP to set up mammograms and were told PP didn't do mammograms?

I am pro choice , but I believe PP is essentially an abortion mill.

Look up a vote. If you don't believe that sight, go to the Congressional website & look up the bill & see how Ryan voted on it.
The truth here is that you don't know how Paul Ryan voted under Bush.
If you did, you would not have wanted to give him a promotion to VP.
Hilarious, the left preferred doddering old uncle Joe? Would you seriously want that guy as president?

My God, you are one dumb SOB.
minorities[blacks mostly] were the original beneficiaries, later it was expanded to practically everyone and every faction, that is my claim and point. And I have supplied proof.

Obama [acorn] sued and won opening the floodgates, Clinton rewrote the rules for F and F to allow the taxpayers to be on the hook for failed subprime mortgages.

Convince me otherwise. some actual proof would be nice.

Your baldness is only trumped by your harmlessness.

Your lack of physical stature is only comparable to your silliness.

Your odor is only exceeded by your oddness.

Is that enough aspersions? and alliterations?

I said that Paul Ryan had no voting record? What? You actually think that I would say that an elected official has no voting record?

You are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other, little man.

You are being fuzzy on purpose or that's just a consequence of the way your neurons are disconnected.
