Breaking news ... "President Obama is to blame for everything".
Same old song just different day
For Obama to be blamed for anything, he'd actually have to do something.
Obama is a candidate for the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on human society in the history of civilization.
Let's look at his resume:

Poor student at Occidental, from where he claims to have transferred to...

Columbia University where there is no record of Obama ever having been on the campus and nobody in his class ever met him, after which he moved to...

Chicago where he meets Vernon Jarrett and William Ayers, then he is admitted to...

Harvard University where nobody has a clue what he did, after which he moved back to Chicago where he...

Was a community organizer and never saw the inside of a court room as a lawyer before he was put on the faculty of...

University of Chicago Law School where the real faculty there descirbes Obama as, and I quote, "lazy and unqualified", after which...

Obama starts his political career in the home of the communist terrorist William Ayers...

And the rest is a history of a lack of doing anything up to today.

Michigan isn't in a state of emergency. It's only the city of Detroit, you fucking idiot.
How about nobody do anything and just let a city that continually gives itself cancer die?
How about changing something. If you don't change anything, only an idiot would expect something different.
Democrats instituting so-called "progressive" regressive policies caused Detroit to self destruct.
You won't change anything if you don't change politics.
Let Detroit die. Move the Tigers to Indianopolis. Move the Lions to Toronto. That's the only thing anyone cares about in Detroit.
Typical Republican mindset cut and run especially when their fellow Americans are involved. But Iraq, we must invade/destroy/rebuild and make them a Democracy. You idiots kill me. The Lions already play in Pontiac. As an aside, you are a complete azzhole, no offense.

Have a good weekend, everyone. Don't get blown up by one of Obama's drones, or arrested for defending yourself, or speak the truth to too many people and end up in one of Obama's detention centers after being detained indefinitely without charges.

So are you seriously saying black people are the ONLY ones who have a right to feel they're the ONLY ones being treated unfairly by the police?
The overly sensitive reaction and overreaction by black leaders alone tells the story.
Sometimes I can't believe my ears when Travis Smiley and Al Sharpton say some of the unbelievably outrageous things they say.
But how do you feel about Barack Obama telling the Benghazi survivors to keep their mouths shut about what happened and them signing a nondisclosure agreement so we won't know what Obama obviously doesn't want us to know?
There's no other possible reason he would want them to sign that kind of agreement.
Obama didn't tell anyone to sign an NDA liar. And by the way the Virginia congressman who was on Fox an hour ago was lying out his azz.

Benghazi survivor? How many were there employed by the state department? State department personnel sign NDA's on their first day of employment dumbazz. How many were CIA employees? CIA contractors? How many of the contractors were not even American citizens?

Two books written by so called Benghazi survivors are due out soon, so much for NDA's.

More FOX nonsense to get nitwits like you all twisted up.

You are talking about the recession caused by the economic disaster caused by the Democrats' subprime housing loan program that collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, right?

Okay, let's pretend for a minute.
President Romney, his Republican Secretary of State and his Republican Ambassador to the UN start a lie about a terrorist attack on 9/11 right before an election leaving four Americans dead and continue to perpetrate that lie for weeks afterwards.
President Romney asks survivors of this terrorist attack to sign a Nondisclosure Agreement to remain silent about what they know.
President Romney says in front of a conservative crowd "punish our enemies" and almost immediately the IRS targets liberal citizens, donors and organizations en masse interrogating them in a manner that clearly violates their constitutional rights.
President Romney, after targeting his political enemies using the IRS, is discovered to also have access to his political enemies' personal data as well.
If we weren't pretending, you know as well as me, a President Romney would be fighting to remain in office because the liberal media would have crucified him a hundred times over already.
May I call you "oh, clueless one" from now on if you still don't get it?

You keep hearing about it because we're being led to believe it's "hunting season" on black men by whites which is a complete and total lie.
Statistics provided by the FBI show that 91% of all black homicides are committed by black offenders.
We're just tired of being lied to. Can't wait until you and a whole lot of others are too.
Demographics come heavily into play here and the thinkprogress boobs will always play with your head where they can.

For the sake of argument, let's say that 90% of America's non-black population resides outside of urban reservations.

Given this fact, it is most likely that most crimes against whites would be by whites, of course.

But the issue here is black crime against whites which is really of crime of opportunity. Trayvon Martins will not hop a plane to Alaska to prey on elderly whites with money. They will either ride into the suburbs to whack someone or wait for a white business person to walk by in downtown Detroit.

Black crime consists mostly as crimes of opportunity. If they can, they will. Put the cheese out of reach, and they won't.

In light of these facts, it is important that we not allow the thinkprogressive propagandists to play with numbers like Tenzing does. thinkclearly is much better than thinkprogress

If given the opportunity, any black resident or politician inside the city of Detroit would sell that artwork in the blink of an eye for untraceable cash. It's just mostly fancy art created by old white cracka's anyways. Who cares?
But from a political standpoint, the argument against the sale makes Detroit sound like it is a "cultural center" of the Midwest and worthy of salvation.
Why did Motown and Berry Gordy get the hell outta there? Because art, any form of art, is the antithesis of what Detroit is today.
Detroit blacks delivered the votes, now they expect Obama to bring home the bacon.

Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to that surplus.
The debt when the Arabs started a global war with the United States was 5 trillion dollars.
The debt when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the US government was 8.5 trillion.
Here's a link to a document that describes in detail how the government is funded and borrows money:
Get back with us on who is responsible for the debt after you educate yourself on the matter, dufus.
Here we go. it was those fan-f*cking -tastic Republicans under Clinton that took us from debt to surplus.

Then Clinton left, Bush stepped in and those same basic fan-f*cking-tastic Republicans took us to debt & destruction.

Allow me to simplify it for you.

Clinton + Republican Congress = balanced budget & surplus.

Bush + the same basic Congress = Deficits & debt.

Yes, we went to wars (one we didn't need) & Bush & those fan-f*cking-tastic Republican cut revenues while passing unfunded legislation . Absolutely brilliant.

Exactly what legislation did the Democrats pass in the first 10 months of 2007 that created the recession?? I keep asking & you keep being unable to answer.

Why is that???
