Barack Obama, our next President

Look any Economist worth his/her salt know all of the Bush growth was as fake as presidency. It was done with debt, there was never a budget that even looked like breaking even and by the end of his term the WORLD WAS BANKRUPT! Great Job, Wall St ran the white house and the military machine sucked the treasury dry. So NO ONE, I mean NO ONE except you Fox assimilated Borg drones believe Bush took charge on anything.
the Bush Debt wasn't fake though along with all the spending he approved and added to the Federal Deficit besides G.W. Bush governed like a Modern Pseudo Liberal too.

It's not the same Democratic Party as it was 30 years ago.
They represent a nanny state, higher taxes and bigger government..
carol, are you aware that higher taxes specially on the wealthy cut down the deficit? Or you're just ignoring the cards on the table and shooting off blanks? It's time to stop big corporation greed that only affects the middle class and the poor, notice most big corporations support republican candidates who of course support capitalism, if we had a republican president now, the gas price would have been well over 5 dlls. A gallon, sorry carol, i'll stick to what i think is right and read my my poster i.d.

Former President Jimmy Carter in recalling former President George W. Bush's many contributions to Africa including HIV/AIDS relief and a peace treaty in Sudan, at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library, said he was "filled with admiration" about Bush's push to help "the most needy people on earth."

It was a pretty amazing moment here on video.
Just wish he had been more supportive of Iraqi human rights when he was criticizing Bush for freeing them from Saddam's tyranny.
Give us a break Carol! As bad as Saddam was there were 1000's less dead under his reign since Bush's so called liberation. Every day a new car bomb kills multiple ppl and its become so common the news doesn't even cover it sometimes. This is not counting 100's of thousands killed during the war. In Saddam's time had any bomber dared to try their hand knew Saddam would wipe out their family tree afterwards. So all this crap we see now was kept in check. Besides it was also useful for the US to have Saddam keeping the Iranians on their toes. All this went out the window when Bush liberated Iraq. Iran knew they didn't have to worry about them any-more so concentrated on their nuke arsenal and supply weapons to insurgents to keep the Iraq government in disarray. Over all I'd say its about as negative in outcome as you can get for the US and the West. So well done Bush, another republican lead foreign policy failure!

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
Yeah, every now and then some drags this article out like it's some kind of gem but in reality it's a piece of dreck. 50% of subprime loans were made by institutions that weren't subject to federal regulation or oversight and another 30% were made by those not subject to routine examination or supervision.

The Department of "Injustice", Eric Holder, made sure the FBI were forced to step back from getting any more information from the Boston bomber. He read him his Miranda rights personally.
Before Mr. Holder told the terrorist he had the right to remain silent, however, the FBI did discover there were 6 more bombs prepared to go off in Times Square.
Too bad we will never learn of any other plots that might have been under way.
Carol, not only are you a liar but an incompetent one as well. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was read his rights by Federal Magistrate Marianne Bowler when he was arraigned in his hospital room the day after he was charged as part of standard legal procedure. Eric Holder didn't read anyone their rights in this case liar.
The basis for Miranda rights is found in the Fifth Amendment to the Constitutions that clearly states that;
“[No person]…shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”
There were no six bombs set to go off in Times Square stupid, the bombers made a spur of the moment decision to do this but were prevented in doing so. They never got to Times Square nitwit so that's another lie. With one of the bombers dead and the other in custody any other plots they may have been planning is a moot point.
You're an idiot Carol!

Every browser connection or session is an ip connection. If you bring up twenty browser sessions, you can judge the Icons 20 times... This Multiple Judging icon can accomplished by having 2 internet accounts in your home and acting as if you are 2 people judging the topix judge icons...

I log in with multiple renewal IP numbers and spam the Topix Judge Icons for the replies to their post...running multiple copies of my browser, which will log in with multiple renewal IP numbers and spamming the Topix Judge Icons for the replies to the post... It can also be accomplished by using different browsers logged into the same thread with multple sessions... on the same internet connection...

It can also be accomplished by using different browsers logged into the same thread... on the same internet connection... Every browser connection is an ip connection.------- You can change ip numbers if you know how... You can also reset your internet modem box and it will DNS or resolve a new ip number... However that is not necessary. The way it works is to bring up multiple copies of your browser on the same thread and page and do the judging..

That's all that is required and wait depending on you network connection and topix server to record the vote and for the judging to take... I have done it and it can take up to 5 minutes on mine, maybe others different...

Try It! and SEE and judge my post here with multiple copies...

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.
nothing is doing you from hitting the lottery but, the deck is stacked against you &, the chances of you doing so is slim to none.
If the current system wasn't a failure, the extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama raising taxes on folks making over $400,000 & families over $450,000, along with the sequester should've have live to the economy but, it didn't. Capitalism is a system designed to keep majority circulating amongst the top, & the middle class (poor) are the batteries that gives the machine the juice to operate, so in essence, the top use money & access to money to drain the life & blood out of the middle class (poor). Exactly how does it benefit America for billionaires like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to make more money in a year then the average American will make in 2 lifetimes? Exactly, it doesn't & it benefits America even less when their type pays little to no taxes in their income. The govt at this point is forced to continue infusing capitol into the economy to money made by the rich & stashed in banks like can goods in a cupboard. The idea of you been make it if you try is smoke & mirrors, & nothing more than inspiration for the blind eye & dead mind to give their flesh blood & live to a evil corrupt system whom really doesn't give a shit about you!

There Leadass Lou, I fixed it for you.

Bush added over 5 trillion to the national debt. Add up those budget deficits. Why don't they add up to the national debt increase???? Is it because Bush ran his wars off budget? Obama does not.

Lying imbecile:
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.
Leadass Lou was very pleased with his Enron Stock he bought in 1997. It provided several years of great growth. The idea that he then lost everything is not important. He still smiles about that growth it had. Leadass Lou isn't very smart.
