Barack Obama, our next President

Come on, get in the present. You are just a liberal loon who can offer nothing but bashing a former president. You do realize that the action taken in Iraq was supported by democrats in the congress? You do realize that do you not. I am waiting for your stock response, Bush lied, you have nothing else. During Sadamns reign many thousand innocent Kurds died, to you not a big deal. How many American's died in Vietnam? An absolute waste. How many died in Libya, an action taken with no okay from congress. Quit being such a phoney.

Congress put conditions on their authorization which included;
Before employing military force in Iraq, the resolution requires that the president first determine that continued diplomatic efforts "or other peaceful means alone," will not "adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."
usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aa101102a....
Did Bush adhere to that? No, UN inspectors were forced to leave before they could finish their job, not by Sadaam but Bush.
The Kurdish massacre occurred in March of 1988 during the Regan administration. What did Reagan do about it? Nothing except trying to blame it on Iran. Sadaam was our guy in the region. After the first gulf war "no fly" zones were established in the north and south and Sadaam no longer had any influence in the Kurdish region.
You right wingers keep bringing up Viet Nam but forget that it was Democratic liberals who rebelled against Johnson and forced him from office.
It was the Nixon campaign that scuttled the peace talks convincing the South Vietnamese that they could give them a better deal than the Johnson administration. In the end Nixon dragged the war on for four more years and South Vietnam ceased to exist.

No American lives were lost in Libya moron, civilians casualties came largely from government forces and would have been worse without intervention. Our role was logistical and supportive and well within our treaty obligations with NATO.
Peace idiot.

Bush had budgets.
We went from a balanced one to doubling the debt & creating the worse recession in 80 years.
Wow, those budgets really helped.
As long as you keep repeating that...

We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.

...I'm going to keep repeating this.

Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.

Happy New Year everyone.

At least all our taxes won't go up this year.

Hopefully, the Democrat Senate won't kick the budget can down the road another four years and spend us into oblivion in the meantime.

Thankfully, another election is around the corner.

Let's hope Americans will get it right this time and elect a Republican Congress to finish out this two-term presidential fluke.

If there's even a glimmer of a chance Americans will wake up to the reality that Democrats are looking out for the future of the Democrat Party and not the country's, there's hope.

...and the beat goes on.

Not enough experience to take two ideas and put them together,i guess for the best possible outcome....It wasn't a secret when he stepped into the shit of government that everything was crashing down and having a chance to gain control of a major automaker AND using that control to bring jobs back to Americans and REALLY start fixing the economy. What a simple and obvious common sense thing to do. What a fucking dipshit.
I wonder why Obama didn't come up with that idea???? Wait a minute...... he did come up with that idea!!!!!!!!!! Wonder why it never became some type of law?????????? Wait a minute.......... here's why:
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

I'm not going to guess at your job or how much you make or bring home, but I will say your the one mad that The President was reelected. So mad that all I see in your posts are blatant lies. If all the non conservatives on here jobs are so crappy, why are you the one mad? All you conservatives do is whine. So much that I'm drunk off your thoughts & it takes alot of wine to get a person drunk! Ya'll representatives are so stupid in going against the will of the people & driving us off the fiscal cliff. I agree it was just what Barack wanted so once they cut bush tax cuts & the president re implements them they will be known as the Obama tax cuts. Kinda smart you gotta admit!

Moderate the SALES of non-essential, over trupmed weapons, and tightly enforce the regs on them.
Do NOT touch the RIGHTS of "WE THE PEOPLE"...because NO, the velveteen poster boy (for some anyway-but definetly NOT all) does NOT have any right to that!

Protect the schools of this nation better-GO ARMY --training put to good use--security in every school!

For the umpteenth time, Bush was promoting home ownership.

When will you quit lying about this?

The only thing Bush did was try a power grab to put Fannie & Freddie under White House control to satisfy his banking buddies.

Clinton + Congress = balanced budget

Bush + same Congress = deficit & debt

It just occurred to me that the loyalists in the 1770s probably criticized the original Tea Party participants in Boston just as much as modern-day loyalists criticized the Tea Party movement across the nation.

Ironic, isn't it, that the loyalists back then supported more taxation and were on the wrong side of history too?
