That's a boil? I thought it was your head. You should have that thing lanced or something. Looks bad.
The good thing about lancing a boil on a tea bagger is you can safely do it from outside or inside, and no pain killers needed.

It seems the dems always want to blame Bush! Obama has had 4 years. It is time he is held accountable.
----------

Borrowing leads to an increasing federal debt. It is true that the debt increased dramatically under George W. Bush. On January 1, 2001, just before President Bush took office, the federal debt stood at $5.6 trillion according to U.S. Treasury figures. When he left office on January 20, 2009, the debt stood at $10.6 trillion, an increase of almost five trillion dollars. As of June 1, 2012, the federal debt was at $15.7 trillion, an increase of $5.1 trillion. The federal debt has increased by as much under President Obama in three years as it did under Bush in eight. CNS News noted in October 2011 that President Obama had added more debt than all other presidents from George Washington to George Herbert Walker Bush.

One POTUS Poll To Rule Them All

See that poll down yonder? This is the first year in the history of this, the greatest (or worst, depending on what color the pie-fight threat level is at this morning) blog in the worldwide internet web, that we've been able to vote on the performance of a Democratic president upon completion of his first term. Think about that. It'll blow your mind if you let it.

Before you cast your dot below, I think it makes sense to briefly review the accomplishments of Barack Hussein Obama circa 2009-2013.

On the plus side: Passed health insurance reform, ordered the raid on bin Laden, saved us from a Great Depression, repealed 'Don’t Ask Don’t Tell' and came out in support of gay marriage, ended the war in Iraq, approved the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, helped boot Ghaddafi, relaxed enforcement of immigration laws on the young'uns, put the Keystone XL pipeline on hold, appointed two women (including the first Hispanic) to the Supreme Court, competently dealt with natural disasters, introduced sweeping and popular anti-gun-violence measures, brewed ale in the White House cellar, sang Al Green and got bench-pressed by a pizza shop owner.

continued....

On the minus side: Launched his secret commie socialist "Kenyagenda," took all our guns, threw all our grandmas off a cliff, created a One World Order, replaced the stars on the American flag with contraceptives, allowed the U.N. in to destroy our golf courses, apologized for America, gave Chrysler to the Chinese as a Kwanzaa gift, stuck his government hands into our Medicare, simultaneously acted both lazy and uppity all the time, knocked down all our churches (but left the mosques), brought procreation to a standstill thanks to his support for gay marriage, told Israel to suck it, spray-painted "Booger" on Saint Ronald Reagan's grave, escalated the wars on Christmas and Easter, made Solyndra the fourth branch of government by executive order, and stole the 2012 election.(Source: House Tea Party Caucus)
So search your conscience and your Wikipedia. Then vote as if the government was recording your choice and putting you on the terrorist watch list if you give Obama anything less than a B+. I'm not saying it is, of course. That's Limbaugh's job.

Vote now and be part of blogging history. When Obama gets his statue on the National Mall, I expect he'll be holding the ACA in one hand...and this poll in the other.

Poll
All things considered, how would you grade President Obama's first term?

A+ 5% 314 votes

A 12% 660 votes

A- 20% 1078 votes

B+ 22% 1161 votes

B 17% 902 votes

B- 9% 521 votes

C+ 3% 192 votes

C- 2% 111 votes

C 2% 142 votes

D+ 0% 48 votes

D 0% 29 votes

D- 0% 20 votes

F 1% 69 votes

5251 votes

Davidson, a retired software developer in South Carolina, has been predicting for four years that hardcore anti-Obama agitation would dissipate, but it keeps going, driven, he believes, by anti-black sentiment. “I’ve seen more openly racist remarks since the election,” he says. “Before November, they were careful to control the racist language because they were trying to persuade people to vote against him. Now they sort of don’t care.”

Look, RH, you can't admit that Bush started out with a surplus & balanced budget & left with the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown & two quagmire wars.

You can't even admit that there were no wmd's

You can't admit Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant.

I know how much you haste it but Obama has improved the economy. A fact even a blind fool like you cannot deny.

Name one area where Obama has drastically increased spending that was not tied to the economic mess your buddy Bush left.
