Obama's were more costly. Look it up.

We will soon start answering to the 159 new agencies, programs, and bureaucracies authorized under Obamacare and complying with the 12,000 pages — and counting — of new regulations.

Pretty sure Obama's going to beat Bush's by the end of next year.

Why won't democrats address lowering the costs of health care?

You just proved Galt is right. Anyone who would b offended by a clown wearing a president's mask needs to get a life.
What does his skin color have to do with anything? You liberals really need to get over the past and quit being so racist.
ah. get over the past.

somehow sounds like the wishful thinking of a racist FOX talking head who by speaking of it indicates that he has forgotten nothing.

David Plouffe Nails the GOP with the Truth:‘Republicans Don’t Have a Product to Sell’

Republicans argued with Plouffe today — talking over him, disagreeing with him, getting nasty, the usual — but what they still don’t see is it doesn’t matter if they talk over him and it doesn’t matter if the media does their usual lazy reporting and thus labels Plouffe’s statements as partisan. Plouffe was correct. 2008 proved it. 2012 proved it. And Plouffe is correct again. Even insider Republicans are admitting that the party is heading for “disaster” now.

If elected Republicans want to ignore reality again, it is at their own peril and it costs David Plouffe nothing. The Obama team figured out during the 2012 campaign that they couldn’t stop the Romney surrogates from hiding in delusion and why bother trying — It cost them nothing. In fact, if anything, Republicans never saw Obama coming because they weren’t watching the real landscape. They were too busy living in their pretend world of unskewed polls and dirty tricks of trying to keep people who don’t vote Republican from voting. These are the tactics of a party that does not have a product to sell.

Priebus believes opening field offices in areas where minorities reside is going to fix the problem that minorities tend to not support policies that are bad for them. If the contest were won by who shouted the loudest and who lied to themselves the best, Priebus and the Republicans would be a sure thing.

The key word was "unskilled" and your comment was, "Yeah, like medical transcription"...and then added "a dying art".

Sounded like a sarcastic insult to me. So say what you mean and mean what you say from now on.

Ok.

Significant Rules require review by OIRA:

Bush 1st term: 2710

Obama 1st term: 2449

Significant Rules have an annual effect on the economy of >$100 million or adversely affect the economy in a material way, create a serious inconsistency or interference with other agencies, materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, and so on.

You mean the court jesters that mocked groups of people.

So, you are saying it would be OK to use government funding to produce a racist show juts to entertain a bunch of right wing bigots?

No, it sounds like all black republicans educating other blacks who still don't get race is a political tool used by democrats.

And used by "useful idiots".

FoxNews pundits once used to be outraged and offended by violent song lyrics or nasty caricatures when they were directed at the U S President George W Bush, but now find it acceptable now with President Barack Obama? How much more hypocritical jerks can Fox pundits become?

A Google News search of Springfield High School returns zero results about such an occurrence, I would check your sources if I were you.
Jews News "It ain't news if it ain't Jews News" sounds pretty dubious and was the basis for the article you linked.
The Muslim Brotherhood burned down Christian schools with children still in them. Christians are now being persecuted everywhere in the Middle East.

On a favorite subject:

A TIME magazine reporter set off a Twitter spat on Saturday when he controversially suggested that WikkiLeaks founder Julian Assange be killed in a drone strike.

Michael Grunwald was pressured into deleting the offending tweet after it was greeeted with hostility online - particularly by Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian - who broke the story of NSA whistle-blower Edward Norton.

Indeed, TIME magazine distanced themselves from the tweet saying,'Michael Grunwald posted an offensive tweet from his personal Twitter account that is no way representative of TME's views'.

Grunwald has written extensively about his support for the United States strategy of killing terrorists using unmanned military drones.

Writing on Twitter on Friday, Grunwald said he 'can't wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out' Assange, who is an Australian citizen.

Julian Assange is currently in hiding at the Ecuadorian embassy in London - as he attempts to ward off his own extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for questioning over allegations of sexual assault.

Here, let me help you out with that reading comprehension difficulty you're having. The headline from your link:
"Despite the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and a series of shocks in it aftermath, the economy has gradually strengthened since mid-2009, though more work remains."
Ok, now let's learn what a "quagmire" is:
Definition of QUAGMIRE
1
: soft miry land that shakes or yields under the foot
2
: a difficult, precarious, or entrapping position : predicament
I didn't say it was all roses, there's still too much government interference IMO and when QEIII stops we will see another correction though it won't be on nearly the scale of the last collapse. The upside is that if interest rates are allowed to rise the incentive to lend will return which will fuel the recovery in a healthy way (provided lenders learned their lesson).
Trying to paint a good face on it doesn't change every graph on the Treasury Department website. A picture - and a graph - is worth a thousand words.

Haven't been wrong about anything and provided indisputable sources - government websites and liberal media sources - to prove it.

Looking up the number of pages of new government regulations under Obamacare is not hard.

Lehigh is a good university, but a notch or two below the top.
Community colleges are Grade 13 of public school for the Vo-Tech track, below a good academic high school program.
So what does the freshman year at the University of Oklahoma compare to.

You're an old out of touch fk Galt, just shootin from the hip at anything that moves.

Community Colleges offer many courses tailored to local or regional job markets that Universities don't.
