Barack Obama, our next President

I'll butt in again to answer your question:
Many times I've pointed out that Clinton handed Bush a budget with a surplus and he turned it into the largest deficit in history. Each time right wingers are quick to respond that presidents don't make laws or control the budget, it was a Democratic congress, not Bush, that was the problem. So, using Republican logic, your question is moot.
I'll point this out to you again, since you're ignorant of events in recent US history....

Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to fiscal sanity. His vetos had to be overridden by a Republican Congress to achieve this.
The Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.
Here's the link to see the actual history of the deficit:

http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/

You can see for yourself that the Republican Congress added 3.5 trillion dollars to the total public debt between 2001 and 2007 when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, and that was with the dot-com bust and a goddam war.
You can also see that it was the Democrats that created the largest deficit in history. When the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, the deficit was 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars... during a goddam war.
Please tell us what the Democrats did to that deficit since....

Did you say the Democrats created the largest deficit in history?

<Quote DBWriter, "Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound."
You make the case that it's congress that drags the president to a fiscally sound government. Then you ask the question why can't the president drag congress.
Can't have it both ways.

DBWronger's such a smart guy he gets out way ahead of the lagging global news services by boldly assigning blame for the US Embassy in Ankara to al Qaeda and deftly laying the blame squarely in Obama's lap. Nice work DB!
You will eventually discover that all the (Suni) Wahabist terrorist organizations, for an example of just one - The Muslim Brotherhood, are elements of Al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda has regrouped while Obama was president after being decimated by Bush and Chaney, and they are again bombing us as if they are on a schedule, just like it was when Clinton was president.

How's that Obama foreign policy working out for you?
More likely attributable to the HW Bush/Clinton tax hikes and the internet boom and the resulting increased revenues. There were no radical spending cuts from the Republican House and Senate as legend has it, just welfare reform which Clinton campaigned on.

You have to be the most ignorant person here.
Obama submitted only two budgets to Congress in the four years he was supposed to submit a budget.
The sum total of votes in the entire Congress for each, and both of the two budgets Obama submitted of the four budgets Obama was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NADA, NONE, ZILCH.
Obama gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one goddam vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
That means every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.
So, why do you treat him like some kind of deity while the real leaders of the Democratic Party think Obama is an ignorant idiot?
DBWronger: 4 budgets in 4 years.

You're welcome.

Last week, the investor Edward Conard, author of a recent book glorifying the ultra-wealthy, addressed the Republicans’ Clinton problem in a commentary in The Wall Street Journal. He said that the boom of the 1990s was the result of Internet-driven growth and that President Clinton was just lucky that it happened on his watch.

Maybe so, but Mr. Conard left unexplained why the budget went from a large deficit to a large surplus simply because of the Internet or why the big tax cuts on the rich he favors failed to raise growth one iota in the 2000s.

Yeah that's why the unemployment rate was 4.5%. You know during the Bush years I had people begging me to come work for them. Offering a lot more money too. There just simply wasn't enough people to fill the jobs that were available. There is a big difference in not enough people to fill the jobs and not enough jobs for all the people. I remember the want ads being 4 or 5 or even 6 pages. Now what page, page and a half? You're lying to yourself and believing it.

And things are only getting worse. At least Biden assured us "Bin Laden's dead, GM's alive!" Guess this administration thought bin Laden still had any significance.
Thank goodness Obama gave President Morsi U.S. fighter planes and tanks while he's killing Egyptians and threatening Israel.
Something just isn't right here.
yeah, something is wrong.

Obama also gave jets to Israel. and gave money for the Iron Dome.

“I can hardly remember a better period of American support and backing, and Israeli cooperation and similar strategic understanding of events around us,” the defense minister, Ehud Barak, said last year,“than what we have right now.”

You make the case that it's congress that drags the president to a fiscally sound government. Then you ask the question why can't the president drag congress.
Can't have it both ways.
Of course he can have it both ways; its how the authoritarian submissive brain functions. You can think of the brain as being compartmentalized, you get a piece of information and it goes into a compartment. In a healthy brain if there is conflicting information in two compartments they are bridged by some form of reconciliation, usually rationalization or rejection of one of the bits of information. In the severely malfunctioning authoritarian right-winger's brain the conflicting information is maintained as two discrete entities which can be switched on and off as the situation dictates. Orwell labeled this phenomenon "Doublethink" when the science behind it was in its infancy.
