a poor effort of defending his record(no mention of when he raised taxes 11 times), but you get the idea.
Why should any president pretend they are like another president? If O'bama is going to pretend to be like any one-compare him to the muzzie sympathizer Carter. O'bama should stand on his two pointed out feet. But you know what a second term of Jimmah Carter would have looked like now huh? Muzzies for everyone.

Republicans To Waste More Taxpayer Money By Holding 3 Hearings on Benghazi This Week
That this comes from the party that took us to war with the wrong country seems to cause them no shame. There were 13 Benghazis under Bush, and Republicans didnít say a word. Additionally, thousands of our troops died fighting the wrong war over a lie.

Democrats never said a word either--BECAUSE BUSH DID NOT LIE ABOUT THE ATTACKS.

You remain true to form. You blame Bush. When will you get ti thru your thick head that Bush is no longer president. The boy nobama is president and he has proven in 4+ years he is not the answer. All economic indicators have declined during his watch. Be a man admit it, nobama is a failure.

September 8,2013: Putin's phone call to the White House, a possible scenario:
Putin: Hello, Barack. I just wanted to touch bases with you in regards to what I have been trying to do to address the concerns you expressed during our last conversation. As you said, Assad is not going to cooperate with you or those who stand with you but, as his staunchest ally, he was willing to listen to me.
Obama: Good to hear from you, Vladamir. I was confident you would see it my way. As we discussed, a peaceful solution is really up to you. I and the international community will not just sit back and ignore what happened. I'm glad to hear you have been making an effort to avoid a confrontation. What has been the outcome of your conversations with Assad so far? Any luck?
Putin: Well, as a matter of fact, that is why I called. Assad has agreed to declare his chemical weapons and hand over control to international monitors as long as you and others stop threatening him.
Obama: That's great news! Just getting Assad to admit he has chemical weapons is a terrific move forward. I will, of course, postpone the vote and will see that our advisors get together immediately to work out the details. I'm pleased you took my advice to heart and I want to thank you, Vladimir, for your cooperation and congratulate you on your successful diplomacy.
Putin: Thank you. However, you really didn't leave me much choice. Although I do not agree that Assad was responsible, I certainly agree with you when you say it is our responsibility to put an end to the use of chemical weapons. I look forward to seeing this through. I'll talk to you soon.
Obama: Looking forward to it. Good bye.
Edited for veracity:

Putin: Hello, chimpy beanpole. I just wanted to touch bases with you in regards to what I have been trying to do to address the concerns you expressed during our last conversation. Assad laughed about you, but he was willing to listen to me after I bitch-slapped you.

Obama: Good to hear from you, Vladamir. My face is still really sore.

Putin: Well, let that be a lesson to you, wimp.

Obama: I just don't know why you had to be so mean about it. It was very embarrassing to me.

Putin: You really didn't leave me much choice. Just be thankful I didnt use Judo.

Obama: Racist bully!!

OUR GOVERNMENT IS CROOKED ! WAKE UP USA
The Bush family and the S&L Scandal
Neil, George Jr., George Sr., and Jeb Bush
The Savings and Loan industry had been experiencing major problems through the late 60s and 70s due to rising inflation and rising interest rates. Because of this there was a move in the 1970s to replace the role of S&L institutions with banks.
In the early 1980s, under Reagan, regulatory changes took place that gave the S&L industry new powers and for the first time in history measures were taken to increase the profitability of S&Ls at the expense of promoting home ownership.
A history of the S&L situation can be found here:
http://www.fdic.gov/bank/historical/s&l/
What is important to note about the S&L scandal is that it was the largest theft in the history of the world and US tax payers are who was robbed.
The problems occurred in the Savings and Loan industry as they relate to theft because the industry was deregulated under the Reagan/Bush administration and restrictions were eased on the industry so much that abuse and misuse of funds became easy, rampant, and went unchecked.
Additional facts on the Savings and Loan Scandal can be found here:
http://www.inthe80s.com/sandl.shtml
There are several ways in which the Bush family plays into the Savings and Loan scandal, which involves not only many members of the Bush family but also many other politicians that are still in office and still part of the Bush Jr. administration today. Jeb Bush, George Bush Sr., and his son Neil Bush have all been implicated in the Savings and Loan Scandal, which cost American tax payers over $1.4 TRILLION dollars (note that this is about one quarter of our national debt).
Between 1981 and 1989, when George Bush finally announced that there was a Savings and Loan Crisis to the world, the Reagan/Bush administration worked to cover up Savings and Loan problems by reducing the number and depth of examinations required of S&Ls as well as attacking political opponents who were sounding early alarms about the S&L industry. Industry insiders were aware of significant S&L problems as early 1986 that they felt would require a bailout. This information was kept from the media until after Bush had won the 1988 elections.
Jeb Bush defaulted on a $4.56 million loan from Broward Federal Savings in Sunrise, Florida. After federal regulators closed the S&L, the office building that Jeb used the $4.56 million to finance was reappraised by the regulators at $500,000, which Bush and his partners paid. The taxpayers had to pay back the remaining 4 million plus dollars.
Neil Bush was the most widely targeted member of the Bush family by the press in the S&L scandal. Neil became director of Silverado Savings and Loan at the age of 30 in 1985. Three years later the institution was belly up at a cost of $1.6 billion to tax payers to bail out.
The basic actions of Neil Bush in the S&L scandal are as follows:
Neil received a $100,000 "loan" from Ken Good, of Good International, with no obligation to pay any of the money back.
Carter sold arms to Iran before Reagan was President. Liberal Democrat policies caused all the problems in the economy,during every administration Carter,Bush or Obama it makes little difference if they keep the same policies and during all the administrations the bureaucrats continue to shred our economy. We need to cut the numbers in Washington DC by over fifty percent to include cutting Cabinet positions,Congressional staff and politically appointed (for life) bureaucrats.

Nope. You are dumber than sh*t.

The deficit is coming down, not increasing.

The deficit as a % of the GDP has been dropping since Obama took office.
