The only reason spending didn't continue increasing at the rate set by the Democrats after 2007 was the TEA Party began to influence Congress in 2010. You remember that year, don't you? That's the year everyone had to get re-elected, and the TEA Party took the House away from the Democrats.
If you noticed, after the so-called "bipartisan" (like there's a difference between Democrats and RINOs) budget gets the increase in government spending back on the suicidal track it was on before the TEA Party kicked everyone's ass.
Tell us again how there was no shutdown!!

Such a disappointment, LCN.

I may be outspoken wanting what's in the best interest of my country and justly criticizing elected officials who don't respect or try to represent all Americans - only the ones who are on their side - but it seems to me this is something you, Lily and I should have in common.

So it actually makes me more sad than angry because I have no idea who you two are. You and she have become more like hijackers of our country rather than just members of the opposing party. You both have absolutely zero tolerance for any opposition to big government and, rather than provide civil debate supporting your reasons for big government, you strike out and try to personally harm and degrade those with a different point of view.

Are you even aware that you're doing that? If so, have you ever stopped and wondered why?

These are just some of the “fun facts” that come via RNC research, and they are based on government and third-party figures. Historic, huh?
Here's another fun fact.

The worst recession in 80 years, the housing collapse, the near financial meltdown, etc created the unemployment problem, the increase in food stamps, the increase in the poverty rate, the decline in income.

Then you take a low point in the price of gasoline at the end of 2008 as a starting point when any one with a brain, obviously knew that low point was due to the onset of the recession reduction in demand. It is anther example of how pathetic you people are.

But hey, Flack, it doesn't surprise me one bit that a low life scumbag would take the problems produced by the Bush administration & place them onto the current President. My God you people are pathetic.

Yet, the Republicans couldn't beat him in an election.

What does that say about the Republican Party?

That they are pathetic whiners?

That no one believes this line of crap other than their feeble minded base?

That intelligent, thinking people know the Republicans were handed the wheel with a balanced budgets & turned it over to the next President with the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, Two quagmire wars & a doubled national debt?

No nitwit, you shut up!
In the first video, Benghazi isn't even mentioned. Did it cause outrage and violence in various parts of the Middle East? Yes STUPID! Our embassies were attacked in Cairo, Tunis and Yemen.
In the second video while the anti Muslim video is mentioned it's not in connection to Benghazi.
In the fourth, Benghazi isn't even mentioned.
Only in the third does the President make a connection, but so what? What's your evidence that it wasn't involved Carol? What's your source? The liars at Fox? What's their source? Did they send anyone over to Benghazi to interview witnesses? No, they just kept on pulling stuff from their anal orifices without any evidence whatsoever. Actual evidence suggests otherwise;
At a news conference the day after the ambassador and three other Americans were killed, a spokesman for Ansar al-Shariah who witnesses put responsibility for the attack on, praised the attack as the proper response to such an insult to Islam. "We are saluting our people for this zeal in protecting their religion, to grant victory to the Prophet," the spokesman said. "The response has to be firm."
If you haven't been paying enough attention to know this president and Hillary Clinton blamed a video for Benghazi days and even weeks after they both knew it was a terrorist attack - based on the Senate Intelligence report that recently came out - you need to go convince someone else the sky is green and the grass is blue because I really don't know how to respond to someone who can't see grass or the sky.

It really is people like you who scare the phooey out of me. Thankfully, you're once again in the minority.

Jan 28 (Reuters)- President Barack Obama will lay out a strategy for getting around a divided Congress and boosting middle-class prosperity on Tuesday in a State of the Union speech that reflects scaled-back legislative ambitions after a difficult year.
Obama will make clear in his 9 p.m. address that he is willing to bypass U.S. lawmakers and go it alone in some areas by announcing a series of executive actions that do not require congressional approval.
The White House said Obama would announce he is issuing an executive order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for federal contract workers with new contracts.
In his address, Obama will also call on Congress to pass a bill to increase the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10 an hour from $7.25 and index that to inflation.
The executive order raising the level for federal workers, which applies to new contracts or existing contracts in which terms are being changed, will take effect at the beginning of next year, with janitors and construction workers among the beneficiaries. Issuing the order allows Obama to bypass Congress, where Republicans oppose a broad increase in the minimum wage.
White House officials said Obama would also announce new executive actions on retirement security and job training to help middle-class workers expand economic opportunity.
"What you'll hear in the speech tonight is very concrete, realistic proposals as it relates to wages, as it relates to education, as it relates to training, high-tech manufacturing, retirement security, those are the things that he's focused on," White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said on NBC's "Today Show."
With three years left in office, Obama has effectively reduced for now his ambitions for grand legislative actions.
Obama is expected to renew his appeal for a long-stalled immigration overhaul that has been stymied by Republicans. He will promote his signature healthcare law, four months after its disastrous initial rollout.
White House officials said the president would try to work with Congress to accomplish his agenda, but would also try to advance it through executive actions if necessary.
"We will continue to call on Congress - both sides of the aisle - to come up with new and fresh ideas for how we can grow our economy and create opportunities for the American people, but we aren't going to stop at that," White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said on MSNBC'S "Morning Joe."
Congressional Republicans expressed ...
This is funny-Valerie Jarrett said she is going to continue to call on Congress, both sides of the aisle--that is a long way from "We won, get over it"--and Valeries comment of 'if they didn't support us, they will pay. OMG what a joke it is going to be tonight. You always know when liberals are in trouble, they tell bigger lies.
