Great, yet another dumbass right whiner blaming Democrats for the worse recession in 80 years.
The recession started in the 4th quarter of 2007.
Please please lease.
Will one of you list the legislation the Democrats passed & Bush signed in the first 9 months of 2007 that took us from that rosy Bush economy to the recession in 8- years.
Do it or just STFU.
Like it or not asshole, this thing started after the nitwits took control and has CONTINUED ever since. The Baraqis have occupied the White House now for FOUR years - we're still barely crawling. Things ought to really start clipping along once the tax hikes hit. Can't you just feeeel the electricity, the anticipation?

Romney lost because we have too many tax receivers voting than actual tax payers. Real simple. And it will bankrupt us, just like Europe.

Reminder, dingus:
The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
Glad i could jog your memory.
DiLorenzo is a right wing loon same as your dumbazz.

Do you really think it was because of Ryan? I don't. I think the 47% video, and Akin and Mourdock, woke many people up
The video did damage but republican voters who stayed home.

Now, to change the subject.
Moderates are leaving Congress at a time when moderates are most needed to find common ground solutions.
In the Senate, moderate Scott Brown, R-Mass. lost to Democrat Elizabeth Warren who will be one of the most liberal members. Another GOP moderate, Richard Lugar of Indiana, fell in the primary election. Two others, Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas and Olympia Snowe of Maine, are retiring.
Moderate Democratic senators such as Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, James Webb of Virginia, are leaving, as is Democratic-leaning independent Joe Lieberman.
Only about half the incoming 12 Senate freshmen of both parties are moderates.
In the House, 10 of the 24 Democratic Blue Dogs lost, are retiring or moving to the Senate. That will further slash a centrist group that just a few years ago had more than 50 members.
"Congress seems to be going in the opposite direction of the country, just as the country is screaming for solutions to gridlock," said Democratic strategist Phil Singer.

We're screaming for solutions all right. But a house divided cannot stand.
It should get interesting.
I hope we can survive the next four years(at least).

I'm beginning to understand your earlier observation that perhaps we, as a country, need to fail before waking up to the dangerous reality rising around us. There can be great inspiration found inside of failure....even if you are surrounded by whining Jackals as you are here, carol.

High taxes on cigarettes do suck, however...
Pay to play.

Potential humans do not have rights? What about Son of Sam? Charles Manson? Jeffrey Dahmer? Osama Bin Ladin? Hitler? Stalin? Pol Pot? John Wayne Gacy?

Do women have a right to miscarry? Huh? Do you have a right to catch a cold and take a dump?

You do know many in the Hispanic, Latino and black populations are anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage?

And many of them are democrats?
