Folks...here's your journalism..
'Quote of the Year'
“One of the most comprehensive first-person accounts of slavery comes from the personal diary of a man called Thomas Thistlewood, who kept copious notes for 39 years....In 1756, he records that ‘a slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.’ This became known as ‘Darby’s Dose,’ a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners’ savagery and inhumanity....When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.”
— MSNBC host Martin Bashir on November 15, reacting to Sarah Palin’s comparison of excessive debt to slavery. Bashir apologized the following Monday, but MSNBC permitted him to stay on the air that entire week. After an extended Thanksgiving “vacation,” he quit on December 4.

It is important to remember WHY it was so important for Obama to promise repeatedly that “if you like your health insurance/doctor, you can keep your health insurance/doctor.”

Cast your mind back to the ignominious collapse of Hillarycare in 1994. Hillarycare came out of the box in September 1993 to high public support according to the early polls. This was not a surprise. Opinion polls for decades have shown a large majority of Americans support the general idea of universal health coverage.

But Hillarycare came apart as the bureaucratic details came out, the most important one being that you couldn’t be sure you’d be able to keep your doctors or select specialists of your choice. The Clintons refused to consider a compromise, but even with large Democratic Senate and House majorities the bill was so dead it was never brought up for a vote.

The difference, which you're not smart enough to see, is that liberals were disgusted by Bashir, Weiner, and Baldwin.
And they were rejected by liberals.
.
Not true:
Baldwin made up to ten recorded homophobic slurs before GLAAD responded
Bashir remained for two weeks and his removal was met with outrage by Progressives on Twitter
Weiner remained longer then he should have because Dems were trying to sale "all the good he had done"

The only reason these people were removed was because Americans were fed up with the PC cops double standards.

As usual, you're full of shit Gunner.

""Opposition to the plan was heavy from conservatives, libertarians, and the health insurance industry. The industry produced a highly effective television ad, "Harry and Louise", in an effort to rally public support against the plan. Instead of uniting behind the President's original proposal, Democrats offered a number of competing plans of their own. Hillary Clinton was drafted by the Clinton Administration to head a new Task Force and sell the plan to the American people, a plan which ultimately backfired amid the barrage of fire from the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries and considerably diminished her own popularity. ""

Conservative asshats like you defeated Hillarycare.

Obama beat your asses, and you haven't gotten over it!!

Powered by tax increases and deep budget cuts that held spending in check, the federal deficit dropped to $680 billion in fiscal year 2013, according to a Treasury Department report Wednesday that marks the first subtrillion-dollar deficit since President Obama took office.
The deficit is less than half the record $1.413 trillion figure Mr. Obama and President George W. Bush shared in fiscal year 2009, and it comes out to a little more than 4 percent of the economy as measured by gross domestic product.
That is still higher than economists say is healthy, but it’s far more manageable than at the height of the recession.
The Treasury numbers show the government achieved a major landmark by cutting overall spending $83 billion, down to $3.454 trillion.
It’s the second consecutive year that overall spending dropped — a feat the government hasn’t managed since 1953 to 1955.
Meanwhile, taxes grew to $2.774 trillion, marking an all-time high and signaling that personal and business incomes are beginning to recover from the recession.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/...
and......
Obama’s Budget: Spending Too High, But Bush Was Worse
Spending growth in Bush’s first seven years: 8%, 7%, 6%, 8%, 7%, 3%, 9%.
Spending growth in Obama’s six years: 13%, 6%, 2%,-3%, 5%, 2%.
http://www.cato.org/blog/obamas-budget-spendi...
now tell us what FOX had to say about Bush and his out of control spending.
You forgot to post the other side of the argument in the Washington Post.

White House Budget Director says the credit goes to Obama for raising taxes in the January "fiscal cliff" year.

Republicans say the credit goes to the spending cuts which were the result of the 2011 deal that imposed discretionary spending caps and budget sequesters.

The 2013 deficit figure [$17.1 trillion] would have been worse if the government hadn’t borrowed nearly $40 billion from the Social Security trust funds.

So the government borrowing $40 billion from SS trust funds so the 2013 deficit figure wouldn't have been worse is a good thing?

As to the Cato article: "Usually this year [2009] would be assigned to the outgoing president because the new president comes in part way during the year and typically does not make substantial changes to the current-year budget. But Obama took steps to immediately boost spending in 2009, including pushing through the giant stimulus bill.

In Bush’s last budget, he proposed that 2009 spending be $177 billion above the 2008 level, but the actual increase ended up being a massive $386 billion. So you can see that Obama and Congress were mainly responsible for the huge spending leap in 2009, not Bush.

(Also, spending has steadily increased under every president for the past five or six decades and, if you look at the little chart, from 2003 to 2007, spending only increased by 0.31 trillion -- and that was after 9/11, two wars and the housing market collapse.

When Democrats took over Congress and the purse strings in 2007, spending increased quite a bit more rapidly until January 2011 when Republicans took back the House.)

Nuc also wants to claim to be female after posting "Vaginas have hard time with facts, all they are mucus secretors" -don't know a female who would post that.

You really need to find out a way to shut out those voices in your head. The Hillary campaign had absolutely nothing to do with the birther movement. Not then. Not now. Not ever.
The birth certificate issue came up in 2007 in the early push for the Democrat primary when Hillary was the favorite for the primary and Obama was moving up from fourth to third. The Republican had nothing to do with the Democrat primaries at that point or any time prior to the primary election.
