Like I told LCN and Lily - and now my unhappy little judge-it - do some reading on liberating Europe, rebuilding Japan and Germany and providing help to those in need around the world.
And then contrast that to books about Lenin and Mao.

But liberals just love hating America.

Powerful countries historically make mistakes. But the mistakes made by what was once the beacon of liberty to the entire world are miniscule when compared to the invasions, occupations and forced colonization by other powerful countries and empires in the past.
They equate liberating and protecting as something bad and mistake us with the British Empire forcing themselves on countries like India.
Again, we liberate and protect.
Now I want all liberals to say that out loud.
"liberals just love running America",
is this not the basis of the daily whine?

Maybe CNN can explain it better.
The gross domestic product rose at a 1.7% annual rate in April through June, slightly faster than the 1.1% rate in the first quarter...[and just 0.1% the quarter before that].
Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had predicted GDP would grow at a 1.2% annual pace, so the report was better than expected and seen as an encouraging sign for the recovery.
That said, 1.7% growth is STILL CONSIDERED WEAK historically.
Since 1929, the U.S. economy has grown an average of 3.3% per year.
http://money.cnn.com/2013/07/31/news/economy/...
Which is the increase we have to see again if we're ever going to get anywhere.
Obama has changed the GDP calculation to make the economy look better than it is.

Fun with numbers.

The unemployed and underemployed are celebrating the good news in the street.

Are you going anywhere just because of my personal beliefs on abortion and gay marriage?

Didn't think so.

Perhaps your time would be better spent on here spreading truth and light instead of criticizing those who are on your side.

Many politically conservative women who do not share your extreme religious beliefs are driven away from Republican candidates by the abortion issue.

That's a fact.

You are guilty of aiding and abetting the enemy.

Another Obama "speech tour" is over so he's off on another five-star resort vacation to wind down so he can gear up for the next one.
When was the last time he stayed in Washington and worked? No one else is going anywhere. Most people are working several part-time jobs just to make ends meet because of the crappy economy and all the Obamacare uncertainties.
But he must be plum worn out trying not to think about it.
Oh the horror! The President is taking an August vacation like all presidents have. Congress is also leaving town stupid. The only people that are going to be there are your "paper pushers" like my son who'll be answering the phones and responding to letters from constituents.
He's spent less time away from Washington than George W who made 77 trips to Crawford at $226,072 per trip for a total of $17,407,544 so he could cut brush and ride his bicycle. He made his first trip four months after he took office. That's where he received his PDB that Bin Laden was going to strike the US. Did George get back to Washington to light fires under butts to get answers and prevent the attack? No, he stayed there for another five days and did nothing.
He was in Crawford when Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Where was Obama during Sandy? At the White House in contact with the governors of the affected states making sure that the government was doing everything it could to help.
But go ahead keep reminding everybody on a daily basis what an ignorant twit you are.

The problem with your comparison is Reagan was a two-term successful governor of one of the largest states in the union after he left the acting profession.
Obama was a community organizer who dreamed of becoming a celebrity president.
See the difference there?
The difference is that President Obama has been elected with a majority vote twice.

The Obama administration has never even had a budget.
The debt will increase perpetually at 8 percent every year with no plan for that to ever end.
The economy is growing at only 2 percent, and most of that is growth in government, which is an expense on the economy and the reason the debt will increase at 8 percent every year.
The government is certain to collapse under this plan.
Coincidentally, while the Republicans controlled all the purse strings of government, the public debt increased only 3.5 trillion dollars during a war. Since, the Democrats have controlled the purse strings of government and have doubled that debt to the 17 trillion it is today.
You obviously don't know how the government funds itself. Here is a link to a document that explains it in detail:
http://usconstitution.com/
Please use this description of how the government is funded so you don't appear so ignorant when you make statements like the president borrows the money.
Didn't the 2010 Budget pass in April of 2009?

I'm asking because it would really be embarrassing for you to be caught in yet another lie today.

People like your son perform no useful function and should be terminated.
