NO to all of the above. Face it, elephants. You fcked up and the voters know it.
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

Stop being such a dummy:
Right now, a sustainable deficit would be around $460 billion. The actual deficit is bigger than that. But according to new estimates by the budget office, half of our current deficit reflects the effects of a still-depressed economy. The “cyclically adjusted” deficit — what the deficit would be if we were near full employment — is only about $423 billion, which puts it in the sustainable range; next year the budget office expects that number to fall to just $172 billion. And that’s why budget office projections show the nation’s debt position more or less stable over the next decade.
So we do not, repeat do not, face any kind of deficit crisis either now or for years to come
Put it this way: Smart fiscal policy involves having the government spend when the private sector won’t, supporting the economy when it is weak and reducing debt only when it is strong. Yet the cyclically adjusted deficit as a share of G.D.P. is currently about what it was in 2006, at the height of the housing boom — and it is headed down.
Yes, we’ll want to reduce deficits once the economy recovers, and there are gratifying signs that a solid recovery is finally under way. But unemployment, especially long-term unemployment, is still unacceptably high.“The boom, not the slump, is the time for austerity,” John Maynard Keynes declared many years ago. He was right — all you have to do is look at Europe to see the disastrous effects of austerity on weak economies. And this is still nothing like a boom.

well I place no faith in the budget office or most so called
budget experts.
The budget office is once again wrong.
A thriving economy would go along way in brining the budget in line.
But increased taxes and increased FED spending and increased
FED regs is the wrong way to get the economy moving again.

NO to all of the above. Face it, elephants. You fcked up and the voters know it.
1.well what would you suggest that Bush should have done with the warning?
2.People went prison for outing the agent.
3.Obama sure took a page out of the Bush play book in regards
to national debt....but that ok..RIGHT?
4.Iraq was not in compliance with its surrender agreement.
5.Yes it was our fault....because we let these leader govern
with a liberal progressive agenda.
6. job loses was not our fault...just result of a crashed economy,
brought on by poor liberal policy.
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.

Its one of the reasons I like Michele Bachmann so much, she
was one the few that made it clear that are tax code was a problem
in that regards.
That I like how she said the min. wage was way too high.
If the min wage is to high for folks that perform labors your old ass probably couldn't then there's something totally wrong with not only Americas workforce, but the minds of Americans!

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?

Well I don't agree with any of your post.
You don't seem to understand basic free market capitalism.
The min. wage changes nothing in the form of living standard
for those who receive it.
A low skill entry level job will always pay a low standard of
living wage, no matter what min. wage is.
The State could make the min. wage 25.00 dollars an hour,
and still changes nothing for those who earn min. wage.
Well....I take that back...it screws things up.
Negative things happen as a result of high min. wage.
Fewer low skill entry level jobs and higher prices
for the rest of us.
My opinion.... a news paper delivery boy wage should not
be the same as a highly skilled nurse....but that is for
the market decide.
Get rid of the min. wage and let the market decide wages and prices.

But libs don't seem to want trust the market....for some odd
reason you seem to think we will all be in poverty if we trust
the market.
Fact is a Hospital needs a surgeon, and they cant find one that
will work for less then fair market value, then that
Hospital will have to pay more.
See its really quite simple to understand, if you drop
the class envy nonsense.

Get rid of the min. wage...we don't need it.
And we would all be better off.

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.
