The price of living rises every year, so should peoples wages. Otherwise we'll be stuck in the same cycle, the rich get rich & the poor stay poor without a chance of moving up.

<quoted text> How can I put it so the retarded can understand? YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY!!! IF BUSH HADN'T F CKED EVERYTHING UP SO BAD, OBAMA WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO SPEND SO MUCH MONEY TO STOP THE BLEEDING! If you recall bush used or inserted the first stimulus right before he was pushed out the door & it failed miserably. All the while Obama was screaming through media outlets," it's not enough." Proved to be right too! See it's only common sense the president had to throw money at the problem to make it stop whether bush/Obama, the problem was competence. Obama knew what it took to stop the decline, bush wasted more of Americas tax dollars, but that's nothing new right?
So is that why your broke. You believe that if you spend all the money in your checking account it will multiply and generate additional funds. You shouldn't insult the retarded, as they appear to be much more intellectually adept than you.

Is it Bush’s fault that the Democrat controlled Senate has not passed a budget since 2009?
Is it Bush’s fault that the Democrats partisan passed Obamacare and stated that you have to pass it to see what’s in it?
Was it Bush’s fault that our current administration ignored the pleas of our representatives in Lybia for security and ultimately became complicit in their deaths?
What is Bush’s fault that Welfare roll have doubled during the current administration?
Was it Bush’s fault that the current administration continually lies to the American public in direct opposition to their claims to be the most transparent administration?
Was it Bush’s fault that Obama has added 6 trillion to the debt since taking office?
No to all of the above, Face it “A$$es” You fck up and the real Americans know it
Bush left behind a trainwreck.

As far as the budget goes, Republicans in Congress are being as obstructive as possible.

If Obamacare was such a disaster, you'll have to explain why Obama got re-elected.

I can't comment on the incident in Libya, but I suspect it's the usual GOP politicizing of tragedy.

Of course it's Bush's fault that more people need government assistance. That's what recessions do.

And yes, it's Bush's fault that 6 trillion more has been added to the federal debt. With the number of people out of work, the two unfinished wars Obama's had to deal with, the bank bail-outs, AIG and General Motors bail-outs, it's all added up.

If you look at Clinton's watch, the national debt went from 4.1 to 5.7 trillion. And he left Bush a balanced annual budget. Bush ran that balanced budget from zero to over a trillion in the red each year. And the national debt from 5.7 to 11.4 trillion.

This disaster has your fingerprints all over it.

*** And Obama is driving that trainwreck off the cliff

As far as the budget goes, Republicans in Congress are being as obstructive as possible.

*** Please explain how the Republicans obstructed the budget when the Democrats have not even presented one

If Obamacare was such a disaster, you'll have to explain why Obama got re-elected.

*** Because he appealed to the 47% of the losers in this country like yourself looking for something for nothing because they are too lazy or incompetent to earn it themselves

I can't comment on the incident in Libya, but I suspect it's the usual GOP politicizing of tragedy.

*** typical liberal deflection. No explanation why our president left our people to die

Of course it's Bush's fault that more people need government assistance. That's what recessions do.
Your last comments are just more of the lack of responsibility that is demonstrated by you and your liberal likes. Just like Obama and the rest of his administration … never their fault but always the fault of someone else out of their control.

**** SAD to be president and not in control … is this because he is incompetent … like you?

1.well what would you suggest that Bush should have done with the warning?
Put federal marshalls on flights. Tenet's August 6, 2001 PDB mentioned FBI sources which described preparations for hijackings. The source was likely the agents who were tipped off about the Arab students learning to fly, but not land.
2.People went prison for outing the agent.
Libby did no jail time and Bush immediately commuted the criminal part of his sentence. Some reporter did a short stint. I think that's about it. Please don't tell me this was adequate punishment.
3.Obama sure took a page out of the Bush play book in regards to national debt....but that ok..RIGHT?
Bush inherited a healthy budget and not only wrecked it, but the economy as well. No, Obama didn't borrow any plays out your playbook. He has had to react to a bad situation.
4.Iraq was not in compliance with its surrender agreement.
Bush and Cheney pushed those accusations to the hilt, but no such violations were revealed once Iraq was occupied.
5.Yes it was our fault....because we let these leader govern
with a liberal progressive agenda.
Oh, come on. Republicans became big spenders starting with Reagan.
6. job losses was not our fault...just result of a crashed economy, brought on by poor liberal policy.
The crash was brought about by a real estate bubble and credit default swaps. The real estate bubbble was fueled by bad lending policies of the banks, which were voluntary, not forced.

The Republican Party controlled Congress and the White House during this period and did nothing to address these issues.
7. Think you may want to take a look at the time line when
these lending practices were started. Face it liberal progressive policies have screwed everything up, and voters will start to understand that.
History suggests otherwise. FDR took us out of the Great Depression. There was a second dip in unemployment from 1938 to 1941 caused by a cutback in government spending. But this eased by late 1941 and unemployment dropped down to 10%. WW II took care of the rest.

The administration of John Kennedy saw prosperous times.

Contrary to GOP beliefs, it was Paul Volcker who created the recession during the second half of Carter's tenure. In an effort to knock down inflation, Volcker raised the prime rate to something around 20%. It eventually reduced inflation, but its immediate impact was that corporations decided not to borrow and cut back their work forces. You know the rest.

There was an economic boom during the Clinton years, although he did leave office with a moderate recession.

As far as Reagan goes, much of the boom he achieved came from military spending and large annual deficits. It was not sustainable.

Sorry sonny, not seeing the correlation between Saddam being a rogue dictatator pre-emptive CATALYST in both the first Gulf War...and Obama being elected POTUS-other than democratic herd pack denial....(is that what your point is?)
----------
The First Persian Gulf War, also known as the Gulf War, Jan.–Feb., 1991, was an armed conflict between Iraq and a coalition of 32 nations including the United States, Britain, Egypt, France, and Saudi Arabia. It was a result of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990; Iraq then annexed Kuwait, which it had long claimed. Iraqi president Saddam Hussein declared that the invasion was a response to overproduction of oil in Kuwait, which had cost Iraq an estimated billion a year when oil prices fell. Hussein also accused Kuwait of illegally pumping oil from Iraq's Rumaila oil field.
The UN Security Council called for Iraq to withdraw and subsequently embargoed most trade with Iraq. On Aug. 7, U.S. troops moved into Saudi Arabia to protect Saudi oil fields. On Nov. 29, the United Nations set Jan. 15, 1991, as the deadline for a peaceful withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Kuwait. When Saddam Hussein refused to comply, Operation Desert Storm was launched on Jan. 18, 1991, under the leadership of U.S. Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf.
The U.S.-led coalition began a massive air war to destroy Iraq's forces and military and civil infrastructure. Iraq called for terrorist attacks against the coalition and launched Scud missiles at Israel (in an unsuccessful attempt to widen the war and break up the coalition) and at Saudi Arabia. The main coalition forces invaded Kuwait and S Iraq on Feb. 24 and, over the next four days, encircled and defeated the Iraqis and liberated Kuwait. When U.S. President George H. W. Bush declared a cease-fire on Feb. 28, most of the Iraqi forces in Kuwait had either surrendered or fled.
Although the war was a decisive military victory for the coalition, Kuwait and Iraq suffered enormous property damage, and Saddam Hussein was not removed from power. In fact, Hussein was free to turn his attention to suppressing internal Shiite and Kurd revolts, which the U.S.-led coalition did not support, in part because of concerns over the possible breakup of Iraq if the revolts were successful. Coalition peace terms were agreed to by Iraq, but every effort was made by the Iraqis to frustrate implementation of the terms, particularly UN weapons inspections...
The Second Persian Gulf War, also known as the Iraq War, Mar.–Apr., 2003, was a largely U.S.-British invasion of Iraq. In many ways the final, delayed campaign of the First Persian Gulf War, it arose in part because the Iraqi government failed to cooperate fully with UN weapons inspections in the years following the first conflict.
The election of George W. Bush to the U.S. presidency returned to government many officials from his father's administration who had favored removing Saddam Hussein from power in the first war. After the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the United States moved toward a doctrine of first-strike, pre-emptive war to eliminate threats to national security.
In October, Congress approved the use of force against Iraq, and in November the Security Council passed a resolution offering Iraq a "final opportunity" to cooperate on arms inspections.

Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky, is drawing attention as a potential Republican candidate for president come 2016, part of a new generation of GOP leadership.

But ladies and gentlemen, Rand Paul is also a bit of a nut. The deep streak of paranoia that he displayed for almost 13 hours on the Senate floor last week would, in ordinary times, disqualify him as a party leader, let alone a potential president. But sadly, these are not ordinary times.

Let’s start by admitting that the stunt itself was a nice piece of political stagecraft. The one-man, TV-friendly filibuster gave Paul the opportunity to play Jimmy Stewart, a lone hero standing up in defense of the Constitution. It’s the type of role that Paul covets.

However, if you’re going to grandstand on the national stage like that, shouldn’t you have something sane to say?
