The Genius got the majority of votes. TWICE.

Not once.....twice!

Wow!

And all these right whiners wasted 40 separate votes to go against the people. And lost.

I wonder if Obama will plead ignorance on this one, too?

No.
So how could it be a lying.
And really, blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession is just pathetic
No, just the percentages. You accept the unprecedented numbers and blame it on the calculation. You call it a recovery, it's nothing of the kind. You blaming Bush is a tacit admission of Obama's utter incompetence and your obsequious fawning.

You will still be able to pay cash. It just won't be tax deductible. The law say you have to have health insurance. Doesn't say you have to use it.

All republicans are opposed to the federal government getting too big for its britches and thinking it can micromanage every aspect of our lives.

Do you want the IRS to be in charge of health care?
Do you want to keep spending to get out of debt?
Do you want the government taking more of your money?
Do you want an oversized federal government who can't effectively oversee veterans' benefits or the waste and fraud in the welfare system?

Even Obama's former senior advisor, David Axelrod, said the federal government is "too vast" for the president to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch.

So just how big do you want the federal government to get before you think it's "too vast" to govern itself - much less us?

the law says you have to pay a tax--it doesn't say you have to have insurance. So how about that line item on my house taxes that pays for the county hospital, think they will get rid of that?

Hmmm, tis is interesting. First time logging in on this device and I've become "Tending" again.

Anyway ...

In a rare show of bipartisanship Democratic and Republican leaders have manufactured a serious terrorist "threat" to prove that all this domestic spying is useful and necessary. Sen. Grassly tipped their hand though stating that they're picking up the same sort of chatter that preceded 9/11.

So what you're telling me Senator is that either there was significant domestic spying going on before 9/11 or we were getting just as good Intel before the PATRIOT Act "legalized" domestic spying?

Do you think the Internal Revenue Service should be in charge of health care?

Do you think the Obama administration knows how to implement the Affordable Healthcare Act?

Do you think the majority of Americans understand the Affordable Healthcare Act?

Answer the questions. This is the legacy of the president you voted for. At least you should be able to answer the questions.

If the federal government had managed Social Security and kept it solvent, there wouldn't be the need for reforms.

But only republicans are demanding reforms. Even though democrats know it won't be solvent much longer.

Can you explain that?

I can understand why with Social Security because Detroit has been dependent on it for years and why none of them want to work and California is another state dependent on Social Security for their entitlement society besides as individuals no one has a right to Social Security anyways so why keep the SCAM going that FDR started and FDR knew is what gets me which Amity Shlaes tells in her book "The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression."

Do you think republicans feel as threatened by their opposition as this president does?

Do you think this president is more concerned about "chatter" from Americans who oppose his vision or terrorist "chatter" knowing he refuses to call them terrorists?

Are you going to blame us this time too or republicans for this administration's irrational fear of domestic uprisings more than foreign threats?

Just curious because it's hard to know who this president thinks are the real enemies.

Hey, Barney Frank: The Government Did Cause the Housing Crisis
Peter WallisonDec 13 2011, 11:20 AM ET
Congressman Frank, of course, blamed the financial crisis on the failure adequately to regulate the banks. In this, he is following the traditional Washington practice of blaming others for his own mistakes. For most of his career, Barney Frank was the principal advocate in Congress for using the government's authority to force lower underwriting standards in the business of housing finance. Although he claims to have tried to reverse course as early as 2003, that was the year he made the oft-quoted remark, "I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation toward subsidized housing." Rather than reversing course, he was pressing on when others were beginning to have doubts.

Not my logic son. You set it up that way. So tell me, when did the law change on CRA?

What's interesting now is you're trying to confuse the CRA for the financial crisis....

.... or maybe you're not trying to confuse the issue at all since you don't understand it to begin with.

Again, you're 'analysis' versus the FRB.....

http://www.federalreserve.gov/communitydev/cr...

"Evaluation of CRA Performance

The CRA requires that each depository institution's record in helping meet the credit needs of its entire community be evaluated periodically. That record is taken into account in considering an institution's application for deposit facilities.

Neither the CRA nor its implementing regulation gives specific criteria for rating the performance of depository institutions. Rather, the law indicates that the evaluation process should accommodate an institution's individual circumstances. Nor does the law require institutions to make high-risk loans that jeopardize their safety. To the contrary, the law makes it clear that an institution's CRA activities should be undertaken in a safe and sound manner....."

Unless you have something to back up your claim that the method of calculating the unemployment rate has changes, your post is post is meaningless.
