Not one of those three ever served a single day in the military, three self serving clowns that rely on nitwits like you to glorify themselves. They are simply trying to use us real veterans a pawns to further their own greedy ambitions. Disgusting lowlifes ...that be all you phony azzed baggers.
"poop"
How many days in the military did the boy president nobama serve? You know the loser president who could find money to keep his golf courses open but no monies to allow families of our military hero's who died so they could welcome them home?
You are one sick sorry pile of manure.

She is risking her life after being shot in the head by Islamic extremists advocating for women's rights.
She was denied the Nobel Peace Price and Car Wash Token. Apparently literally putting your life on the line for women's rights isn't as impressive as blowing up Pakistanis with drone missiles when it comes to earning the Prize/Token.
Then again, Lord Obama hadn't blown up Pakistanis yet when he got the Prize/Token. In fact he hadn't done a damned thing.
But I guess looking cool, playing basketball and being a smart-a$$ teleprompter reader is more meritorious than a 16-year-old girl risking her life.
Lookie another two faced lying bagger pretending to care about women's right...Toooo funny.What a bunch of desperate lying hypocrites.

Better individuals hold the wealth than government.
Your ideology is backwards.
Then explain to us how those individuals keep their wealth or infact get wealthier when that percentage shrinks with every decade.

Look at this graph, this is what Tea Party Talibans crave but they don't know how to get there. Their idea of getting there is just cut social welfare and the problem is solved. However most of them rely on that welfare to survive in the first place.

See how the graph shows in the 1950's - 60's the bottom 90% shared 74% of America's wealth. Come forward 50 years and all of a sudden the bottom 90% only shared 22% of the country's wealth. WHY ???
Do you think this would change the trend if you lowered taxes ? I mean that is what the dip$hits on Fox might tell you but the reality is that wealthy distribution would just keep shrinking.

http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2011/02/...

How did that wealth suddenly move up the chain and leave the bottom 90% struggling. Because the system is broken that's why and unchecked capitalism will just keep doing that until it implodes. It has NOTHING to do with social welfare but those 4%'rs want you to believe it DOES. It's laughable and you have been brain washed into looking in all the wrong places for the fix.

Somebody had some confusion about who provided the info for the list below. It was each state's governor.

Because welfare payments vary by state let's look at which states have the largest percentage of their population on welfare.

1 California
2. Maine
3. Tennessee
4. Massachusetts
5. Vermont
6. District of Columbia
7. New York

You "cra cra".

Herbert Hoover had been the president eight months before the stock market crash and the subsequent Great Depression.

Ironically, the Hoover Administration's Reconstruction Finance Corporation - a government agency that provided $2 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments and businesses - was in many respects the forerunner of Obama's stimulus and achieved similar results.

Hoover's was a Republican failure. Obama's, a Democratic failure.

Then, of course, there's Carter's recession. He was a Democrat.

Bush turned the economy around after 9/11 within two years.

The housing market collapse occurred at the end of Bush's presidency. Democrats wanted everyone to buy a home they couldn't afford. Even with two wars, the economy and unemployment were doing fine until then.

It was Obama's job to turn the economic crisis around. But he didn't want a good crisis to go to waste. Enter Obamacare.

Saving Republican Populism From Itself

So long as would-be populist leaders are able to mislead their supporters into believing that failure is success, there will be little incentive for them to change. Conservative voters need to stop applauding flattering falsehoods from their leaders, and unless they do that they and their interests will continue to be shortchanged. Cruz et al. abused the trust that conservatives placed in them, but unless they are held accountable by conservatives most of them will see no reason to do anything differently.

I do not know about you, but I for one do not want "poop" to kick off, his every post produces a chuckle. The BS he so ineffectually tries to spew is funny. You should be envious, tonight he has a date with a Hollywierd model at Red Libster afterwords she will watch as he tries to lure a little boy into his bed. She wants no part of him and he lacks the part she might be interested in. He will regale her as he describes about his career in the US military, how he was promoted to private general while serving in Nam, how he took care of his little brother while advancing thru the ranks, his exploits as captain of the national championship Wake team in the 50's, on why his advice is sought by leading democrats and president nobama.
You mist admit the BS he spews is hilarious.

Just another example of just what a total mess eight years of Republican "leadership" did to our once great nation. Obama has done a very good job considering the mess you left. By the way Brad exactly what did Obama do that caused that to happen?
You either have a short memory or selective memory.

Democrats said Fannie & Freddie were doing just fine, remember?

Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 - two years before the housing bubble popped and the economy crashed - and still had control two years after.

The potentials for fraud will be limitless.
The idea is to create so much chaos the only solution will be to go to a single payer system.
So, basically, you want a health care system where the government pays hospitals and doctors directly so you don't have to. Hmmm. Medicare for everyone...just with no age restrictions. Got it.

Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 - two years before the housing bubble popped and the economy crashed - and still had control two years after.
In the aftermath of the US Treasury’s decision to seize control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, critics have hit at lax oversight of the mortgage companies.

The dominant theme has been that Congress let the two government-sponsored enterprises morph into a creature that eventually threatened the US financial system. Mike Oxley will have none of it.

Instead, the Ohio Republican who headed the House financial services committee until his retirement after mid-term elections last year, blames the mess on ideologues within the White House as well as Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve.

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of
Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.

Adamant that the only solution to the problems posed by Fannie and Freddie was their privatisation, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.

“We missed a golden opportunity that would have avoided a lot of the problems we’re facing now, if we hadn’t had such a firm ideological position at the White House and the Treasury and the Fed,” Mr Oxley says.

When Hank Paulson joined the administration as Treasury secretary in 2006 he sent emissaries to Capitol Hill to explore the possibility of reaching a compromise, but to no avail.

Uh oh Dems stalling budget talks in the Senate...
“It’s time for Democrat leaders to take ‘yes’ for an answer,” McConnell said in a statement calling on the Democratic leadership to return to the negotiating table.
McConnell pressed Reid to accept a six-point plan sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to fund the government for six months at an annualized rate of $986 billion, raise the debt limit, make modest reforms to ObamaCare, grant federal agencies more flexibility to manage their budgets and establish a bicameral budget conference.
Republicans say a group of six mostly centrist Democrats helped craft the proposal.

Close but no cigar. All Republicans have to do is take out their "modest reforms to ObamaCare" and we're probably home free. It's time for Republicans to stop playing games and say "yes".
