Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

So, you would have let the big banks fail , big corporations fail , let the country fall into a Great Depression and then do nothing but hope and pray 'someone' will come to save the day?

That's like saying oncologists are "cancer supporters". Haven't seen the Mayo Clinic's Get Out the Smoke campaign, have you?
That was a dumb comparison.

What eludes them is Bush "inherited" a recession after the dot-com bubble burst. The same dot-com bubble Clinton capitalized on and, luckily, was able to exit the stage before it went boom.

So Bush basically got stuck with the dot-com crash and 9/11 right after Clinton said, "Exit stage right!" like Snagglepuss.

"But you conveniently overlooked the part about "Democrats promoting and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac". And you conveniently overlooked the part about the "economy taking off after the Bush tax cuts". So, basically, you are wrong."
so let's start with how a Republican Congress somehow let Democrats protect F&F.
and then we can go on to how the Bush tax cuts did nothing for our economy. did plenty for China's economy, but a big failure at home.
lol! That's what I keep telling them! So by their 'logic,' they must feel really empowered to do something since 2010.

And yet, nothing.

It's as if they're ok now.

Three-quarters of the states must ratify any proposed Constitutional amendment.

<quoted text>and your point is? Hillary Clinton was born there in one of the most affluent suburbs of Chicago, and yet she is poor? like all democrats? is this what you are trying to say? Your cut and paste forgot to mention that it has no retail base for taxes. So they really soak the working guy. Before O'bama left office in Illinois that pushed a law through that people who don't have a pot to piss in, nor have ever worked in their lives deserve public housing in places like Park Ridge.
You failed to read the entire link to Park Ridge or you really lied about knowing the town. The town did have a industrial/ retail base with its traditional brick-making business as a core industry to the town's development. And now you're telling me that you oppose U S Constitution civil right equal housing laws . A pewrson ought to have a right to live wherever he damn well pleases and not be forced by the prejudice or racism of others to live someplace else.

That whole debacle makes me extremely angry.
We STILL have no answers whatsoever as to why this happened and who is responsible. This president ALWAYS promises answers but NEVER delivers.
Good thing bushie boys incursion into iraq doesn't get you upset.

In fact, it's nice of you to be so accepting of that decision.

By "loop" you must be referring to the O'Reilly "Spin 'til they puke" Zone.
No. Obama spoke generically about "acts of terror", but did not specifically call Benghazi an act of terror. This was clearly intentional, to give him deniability either way.

Depopulating An Entire Region Of Our Country

It was demonstrated that both the US government and the Chinese government are engaged in an Agenda 21 motivated plot to relocate rural and suburban residents to more densely populated urban centers to live in overcrowded conditions where a personís every movement and every activity is monitored. The previously described policies are proving effective in moving populations into densely populated urban centers in accordance with Agenda 21 policy. However, the process is not as speedy as the globalists had hoped. The global elite needed a game changing event in the United States. In order to speed things up, the elite bankers at Goldman Sachs masterminded the Gulf oil spill to this end...

Oh, you mean like pushing a major piece of legislation that got passed by a strict partisan vote and 60% of Americans were against?

That kind of agenda?

Do you mean the "train wreck that's coming" kind of agenda?

You like to lie about history to fit your own lies. When Clinton transferred the Presidency over to Bush43 in 2001 the government budget had a surplus and the country was enjoying better economic growth and prosperity then it has ever had since the 1960's.

Son we KNOW Clinton signed GLB. It's a fact. It's historical.

The funny part is cons just don't accept any responsibility in the destruction process, especially with the repeal of Glass-Steagal. Or the the fact it was capitalism that screwed the pooch on this.

Once again, a false assumption that failure of a large bank or large corporation would create a depression.

If GM had declared bankruptcy in the normal manner, the company would likely have reorganized under new management and continued operations. If not, there were plenty of other automakers with the capacity to meet the demand for automobiles (except perhaps those who prefer crummy, overpriced cars).
