Barack Obama, our next President

ever since the economy tanked while Bush was in office they have yet to turn to the front.
but we don't care. look at what it hasn't given them.
Bush this, Bush that... Well pal, Bush hasn't been president for over four years now and the Democrats have made things worse. Gas is double what it was, we have the worst economic recovery since WWII, the economy still sucks and terrorism is worse.

Hell, we just had more people killed in yet another embassy just now - Turkey.

You idiots who call yourself Democrats want to push your nutty agendas so now you are on to Gun Control, meanwhile people are starving and our people are getting killed, they burn more U.S. Flags around the world now than when Bush was president and the world is laughing at us.

Democrats were in office too and now they are making things ten times worse, jerk.

The Democrats came roaring back in 2006 and again in 2008. There's no reason Republicans can't do the same, unburdened by having to run against an incumbent in 2016. Unless Marco Rubio has his way.

The Democrats never change their ideas; they change the voters. For decades, Democrats have been working feverishly to create more Democrats by encouraging divorce (another Democratic voter!), illegitimacy (another Democratic voter!) and Third World immigration (another Democratic voter!).

Strangely, some Republicans seem determined to create more Democratic voters, too. That will be the primary result of Sen. Marco Rubio's amnesty plan.

IT'S NOT AMNESTY! Rubio's proponents cry. They seem to think they can bully Republicans the way the Democrats do, by controlling the language.

Rubio's bill is nothing but amnesty. It isn't even "amnesty thinly disguised as border enforcement." This is a wolf in wolf's clothing.

Despite all the blather about how Rubio demands "Enforcement First!" the very 1st thing his proposal does is make illegal aliens legal.(Don't call them "illegal aliens"!)

The ability to live & work legally in America is the most valuable commodity in the world; it's the Hope Diamond of the universe. I know young, well-educated Canadians who waited a decade for that privilege.

Step 1of Marco Rubio's plan is: Grant illegal aliens the right to live and work in America legally.(Rubio's 1st move in poker: Fold.)

People who have broken our laws will thus leap ahead of millions of foreigners dying to immigrate here, but -- unwilling to enter illegally -- waiting patiently in their own countries.

The only thing the newly legalized illegal immigrants won't get immediately is citizenship. Rubio claims that under his plan, they won't be able to vote or go on welfare. But in practice, they'll have to wait only until the ACLU finds a judge to say otherwise.

And, the vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic, and Hispanics have a higher teen birthrate than any other ethnic group. In California, a majority of all Hispanic births are illegitimate. That's a lot of Democratic voters coming.

And look how great that's turned out! With Hispanics on track to become the largest ethnic group in CALIFORNIA this year, the state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan is incapable of electing any Republican statewide anymore. TAXES KEEP GOING UP, AND THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO PAY THE BILL.

That will be our entire country if Republicans fall for Rubio's phony "Enforcement First!" plan. Perplexingly, some Republicans seem determined to TURN THE WHOLE NATION INTO CALIFORNIA, in the foolish hope of winning 1 last election.

No border can be secure when the pot of gold on the other side is an American green card.(Again playing games with language, Rubio doesn't call the right to legally live and work here a "green card," but in practical effect, that's what it is.)

So when exactly does the enforcement part of Rubio's "Enforcement First!" plan kick in? Answer: NEVER.

Or rather, enforcement becomes both impossible -- because nothing will stop them if legalization is the lure -- and irrelevant -- because there's NO PENALTY for leaving the border wide open.

Even if enforcement "fails," are the 11 million illegals already legalized by Rubio going to be asked to leave? Of course not.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is a Republican who -- as a Princeton and Harvard Law graduate -- does not yearn for "strange new respect" from the elites. This week, he said of Rubio's amnesty plan: "To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly UNFAIR to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally."

If only other Republicans didn't ride the tea party to victory before realizing they really just want to be John McCain.

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.
To correct the erroneous information you received in your indoctrination session, Clinton vetoed the welfare reform legislation, and Congress had to override his veto.

At the time, there was no need for radical spending cuts because there was nothing wrong with the size of government then, thanks to a Republican Congress.
That's not true today. The Democrats have needlessly created a Godzilla of a government that obviously needs to be put on a diet and have gastric bypass surgery and liposuction and appendages cut off and... etc., etc., etc.
There is no part of the government the Democrats created that doesn't need to have drastic cuts made.

Here, on Earth, we have a different history.

The recession was caused by the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd in the Senate and Frank in the House.

But, that's what happens when the Very Silly Party like the Democrats puts a person who throws his male page off his New York hotel balcony and runs a male prostitution racket out of his house in charge of overseeing financial services in the country.

<quoted text> 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.
You meant to say the unemployment rates was 4.5% or below for 13 months of the 96 months Bush was President,right.

In Jan of 2001. Bush inherited a 4.2% rate & a balanced budget.

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?
Clinton + Republican Congress = Balanced budgets

Bush + Same Basic Congress = Debt & deficits

What changed?

DBWronger: 4 budgets in 4 years.
You're welcome.
Ok....

Give us the vote totals in Congress for each of those budgets.

... got a problem there, don't you?
That's because Obama only submitted 2 budgets in 4 years, and the sum total of votes in Congress for each and all of the 2 budgets he submitted of the 4 budgets he was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NONE, NADA, ZILCH.
Obviously, every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.

By the way, when do you think Obama will deliver that budget proposal he referenced last week when he said it will be late?
