Clinton and Carter praised Bush for pushing Congress to fund AIDS relief for Africa.
Apparently, the bipartisanship had to be "pushed".
Carter thanked Bush for seeking a solution to the conflict in Sudan and told Bush he was grateful "for the contributions you've made to the most needy people on Earth."
Obama said, "To know the man is to like the man, because he's comfortable in his own skin. He takes his job seriously, but he doesn't take himself too seriously. He's a good man."
For the first time, Obama said something right about Bush.
I think it to be somewhat ironic that President Bush worked to promote the freedom of women beneath Allah in the M.E and in Africa and then today we have Muslim men coming to America, getting on Welfare and immediately proceeding to subjugate American women and beat them for Allah.

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

<quoted text> Has nothing to do with republican or democrat bro! The powers that be have no need to label you, if you choose to label yourselves! It has to do with personal responsibility & equality. True equality, not the guise of affirmative action. This is why this country has come to a standstill. One of the cornerstones in the construction of this country remains to be treated as step children. That & people think capitalism is a heaven sent, when in fact it keeps things the way they are. The rich gets richer & the poor remains poor, because the money is continuously funneled into the top 1%. If the trickle down economic theory really works, if would've taking affect already after over 50yrs of this experiment. It's not the fact that the people making all the money didn't earn it. It's the fact that people are making money just to bank, already filthy rich turned glutinous hoarders. Meanwhile, the poor still starve literally, emotionally, mentally. This country will never reach the heights of it's true destiny bro if we continue to part ourselves through race, religion, & politics & wealth status. We should honestly focus on what truly betters the nation, money not included. Prosperity is generated through honesty! We have to stop turning blind eyes to glaring necessities & address Americas needs, not personal needs. This is what 99% of people vote for, what benefits themselves, not what benefits America because what benefits America, benefits themselves indirectly!
Hard work and personal responsibility are what made this country great, the dems are no longer interested in either. Nothing nor no one is keeping you from being the next Bill Gates.

What America needs is less Oblamer, less demorats in office. The states doing well now are all republican controlled.

$500 billion a year in welfare and freebies does not instill a work ethic in people and is not sustainable.

" PORTLAND, Maine — Pupils at a city middle school will be able to get birth control pills and patches at their student health center after the local school board approved the proposal Wednesday evening.
The plan, offered by city health officials, makes King Middle School the first middle school in Maine to make a full range of contraception available to students in grades 6 through 8, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services.
There are no national figures on how many middle schools, where most students range in age from 11 to 13, provide such services."
"At King Middle School, birth control prescriptions will be given after a student undergoes a physical exam by a physician or nurse practitioner, said Lisa Belanger, who oversees Portland's student health centers."

They get a prescription. Not free pills.

I don't know. With some help from the R's, maybe the recession could gather more steam.
But wouldn't any intelligent, informed, educated person expect the worst recession since WWII to have the worst recovery since WWII. Ad before you run screaming through the streets having your typical " OMG OMG OMG" fit, I am saying that recovery time usually matches the severity of the recession.
The worst recession should have the most difficult recovery.
I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.
Whatever

<quoted text> Name 1 true socialist regime! It has nothing to do with utopia. So your logic is let the starving starve at the sacrifice for the rich's glutinous money indulgence. What sense does that make? You can't live utopia, because you can't see utopia. Greed is an American inbred. You're infected! You have control of yourself. You could choose the right thing all the time. You chose to pick your version of the lesser of 2 evils. Exactly how does a 2 party system help the country? Exactly, it doesn't. If ademocrat is elected, he represents the democrats, & vice versa. Be real, use your gift of logic that you were born with, if you were born with any. Don't call equality utopia. They're 2 different things entirely!
You have already failed at being logical. Your claim is it is okay to make the poor poorer as long as the rich is poorer too.

President Barack Obama ripped Republican-led efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, during a Friday speech to the women&#146;s health organization&#146;s annual gala in Washington, D.C.

Obama, who is the first sitting U.S. president ever to address the group, offered a spirited defense of Planned Parenthood&#146;s mission. Noting that one in five American women has turned to Planned Parenthood for health care services ranging from contraception to cancer screenings, Obama said &#147;when politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they&#146;re not just talking about you, but they&#146;re talking about the millions of women who they serve.&#148;

"There's nothing conservative about the government injecting itself into decisions best made between a woman and her doctor," Obama said Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/obama-planned-par...
