Military spending by selected states
Alabama $10 billion
Georgia $12 billion
Mississippi $5 billion
Virginia $42 billion
California $56 billion
Now, who is getting all the federal tax money?
Not the red states.
Dishonesty.

You list the lowest red states.

You then call Virginia a blue state while listing the highest blue states.

What about Texas?? Why did you forget Texas???

More blabbage.

The banks hated Fannie & Freddie & felt they held an advantage in the marketplace.

So they wet to their lap dog, George W Bush.

Bush didn't try to reform them, he tried to put their oversight under White House control instead of Congress.

Even some Republicans in Congress recognized this power grab & said no.

My God, if Obama tried something like that you would be running screaming through the streets with your arms flailing about.

More people than that give up trying to look for work every month in the Obama Depression.
Exactly as planned.
Soon we will be below 50% in the labor force participation rate.
8.5 million jobs have disappeared forever in the last four years. 885,000 people stopped looking for work in February alone.

Its being dishonest.

So tell me what legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that took us from rosey Bush economy to the worst recession in 80 years?

I don't think an American president should be trying to make fools of other Americans, it points to his coarseness and his partisanship. He placates half the country and ridicules the rest, that's NOT the role a president "..of (all) the people", should play.
I don't think a political party should put their party ahead of the good of this country like the Republicans admitted they were doing.

Funny how you support that.

And have a fit when this is pointed out by Obama. Obama's just highlighting how ridiculous the efforts of Republicans jut to block progress in our recovery.

Just like ho Republicans defend each & every loophole in the tax code.

Just like pointing out republicans would trade higher taxes on the wealthy if they could cut medicare.

Just like Republicans threatened to end tax breaks for everyone unless the wealthy got tax breaks

Just like how the same Republicans crying about cuts were the exact same ones voting yes yes yes for spending under Bush.

Tell your party to grow the F*ck up & help fix the problem THEY created.

There is nothing wrong with Conservatives arguing, criticizing or even belittling each other. That is healthy. Culling the herd of wackos is good. Mudslinging at a Mountain Mineral Health Spa eases tension and raises spirits.
But feigning love for each other and America at a convention that postures emptily before cameras and middle America when they in fact, in their Liberal hearts of treachery, want to rid their country of any Spirituality, any sense of Moral compass or Centrism and raise the State to God status while simultaneously lowering the individual to tool status, that is wrong.
yes, CPAC is a hotbed of hypocrisy.
