<quoted text> Ex- President bush jr. Is the one you should be blaming for the budget deficits in the trillions he inheredited obama with. BUSH ruined the budget surplus CLINTON LEFT HIM.
If the trillions added since January 2009 - which far exceed any increase Bush incurred - spurred the economy back on track, you might have an argument.

If the fallout from the housing market crisis had not happened or if more democrats had heeded the warnings, you might have an argument.

If democrats had not controlled both houses of Congress from January 2007 to January 2010 and not controlled the purse strings for four consecutive years during the massive increase in the deficit, you might have an argument.

But as Bob Woodward said, this is the Obama era. History will hold him responsible. You can pretend like it's anyone else's fault all you want to.

How can you be 100% sure Bush and republicans wouldn't have turned things around a long time ago if they had been given the chance? They weren't. That's why you can never be sure.

It's ridiculous that I'm being forced to post on Topix at odd hours to avoid harassing liberals. Would anyone like to join me in signing a letter of protest addressed to Tolles the CEO?
Dear Mr. Tolles,
I've been using your service for four years now and used to enjoy it very much. Lately, however, it's become more of a burden for me and many of my friends. A group of liberal posters on Topix have made it impossible for me to continue, and, though their vile and frankly pornograpic activities have been repeatedly reported, nothing has been done.
I regret being made to leave the site but it has gone so far that even my friends here have no idea who I am anymore. I feel your lack of concern in this matter to be deplorable.
Sincerely,
"carol"
A few are just Trolls.
We enjoy you on topix

Back again spewing prevarication are we Grampy? Rep Steve Stockman from Texas is the only one talking impeachment if Obama uses executive power to strengthen and enforce laws already on the books, which he has the power to do under the Constitution. It's all bluster and not going anywhere.
Even if this nut case could get the necessary votes in the House which he can't, it would go next to the Senate which is controlled by Democrats. In 2014 voters would react to this massive waste of time and taxpayer money by sending more Republicans packing.
You're an idiot Grampy and a racist piece of crap. Or is that being redundant?

Iraq now has a Parliament, not a perfect one. but a Parliament and elections.
Historians may well give G W Bush some credit for that.
BTW GHW Bush is out of the hospital
Look, we KNOW Saddam had WMDs. The UN knew he had WMDs. The entire civilized world knew he had WMDs. The inspectors found remnants of WMDs and where he produced them after he was ousted.

So are you telling me you're not perceptive enough to know he had plenty of time to dispose of them during the 4 years of UN resolutions after 2001 and when the first resolutions started back in the 1990s?

Where do you suppose they went when he not only had them but had used them?

You seem quite perceptive to me. But not on this issue, I'm afraid.

When I read stuff like this it picks up my spirits to know these clueless folks have infiltrated the Republican party and will sabotage it from within. Not just you Carol but I can't think of one right wing poster on this site that has any clue at all about how their fanatic ranting turns off rational moderate middle America. We need people like waxturd, Eman, martinezjosei, John Galt, maddmaxx7 ... to start writing letters to the editor to insure a Democratic government for years to come.
Well, my bad then. Maybe you can enlighten me as to the promises Obama made about immigration that were fulfilled in the past four years. I must have missed it or wasn't paying enough attention.

Then you can rant about clueless folks infiltrating the republican party.

I anxiously await hearing back from you.

It has not been established and most may not be for several decades. It took thirty year for the World War II ULTRA secret to be revealed.

Long lines formed at help centers and lawyers' office across America Wednesday as thousands of young, undocumented immigrants began applying for relief from deportation.

They took advantage of one of the biggest immigration policy changes in years.

An executive order
by President Barack Obama

allows those who entered the country illegally as children to remain and work without fear of deportation for at least two years.
