<quoted text>Actually Reagan has the record for tripling our public debt...
and then Cheney told us that"Reagan proved that deficits don't matter."
history is fun!
When Cheney made his remarks we had a strong economy, the deficit was around 27% of GDP, unemployment at 5.5%, and the GDP annual growth rate around 3 to 4%! Strong economic growth, low unemployment, equals revenues!

So Cheney is correct if you have a strong economy the deficit has less of an impact on the overall picture!!

Exactly!! They even referred to it as "Obama African Ball Washing Program" after it was disclosed it was funded by the 2009 economic stimulus law. They are so eager to find fault with Obama, they miss the details.

President Bush Speaks on Ailing Economy
Oct. 10, 2008

President Bush tried to reassure the nation today that the economy is strong enough to weather the current crisis, but by the time Bush stopped speaking nine minutes later, the market had dropped another 107 points.

The president's encouraging words have historically been able to boost the market, but in the current economic crisis, Bush's ability to instill confidence has been mixed at best.
Speaking after the Dow opened down 200 points this morning and as the numbers continued to drop, this morning's address marked the 10th time the president has spoken on the issue since news of the bailout plan first surfaced.

Following the previous nine times the president specifically addressed the economic crisis, the market ended the day on an upturn on five occasions and closed down the other four.
This morning the president told Americans that "the United States government is acting; we will continue to act to resolve this crisis and restore stability to our markets."
"We are a prosperous nation with immense resources and a wide range of tools at our disposal," he said. "We're using these tools aggressively."

Despite repeated assurances to Americans that they should be confident and that economic officials are aggressively taking action to stabilize the financial system, things haven't been improving.

Friday morning began on a gloomy note, and immediately following the president's speech, negative patterns were apparent. The Dow was down 78.70 at the beginning of the president's statement but dropped to 185.66 by the end of his address.
The Dow dipped Friday morning below the 8000 mark for the first time since March 2003, and overnight global markets in Asia and Europe experienced mor

IMO, even if they don't provide any real tangible proof that connects Christie to the actual closure, he's past history if no other reason than he created the atmosphere that led to the retaliatory nature of the lane closures. Good riddance.

in fact. when ht dollar is weak and Us interest rates on our t notes are low, then the deficit matters least. when the economy and the dollar are strong and interest rates are high, then we pay more on our debt.

facts are fun!

Personally, I think all those videos of him bullying people was the nail in his coffin.
I notice he's trying to come across as a 'kinder, gentler" Christie now.

All his appointees are jumping ship. So the only one left will be the elected one.

And he'll have no one to go to lunch with!

yeaaaaahhhhh...mayyyyybeeee... that is a tough nut to tighten

and of course...several governors, even very conservative ones have stated it would be hard for a gov to NOT know that something like that was happening..

but still, one needs some real proof...or at least ratioanl people do...otherewise the idiots claiming no help was sent to the people in benghazi win, regardless of the falsness of their claims...you don't want to be one of those people do you...

stick with the facts. your life will be far, far better.

I think that's the point... and by extension how the GOP really doesn't care about the people and are more than willing to make their political point against the constituents.

If they find Christie knew about the lane closures, he'll be a lame duck the rest of his term.

And it only gets worse if people start to believe he with held reconstruction money...

... and tried to buy a development!

That's the thing.

Christie can claim he had a single renegade on his staff.

But now it looks like it IS his staff.

And that's a direct refection on who put them there....

Careful now, power bills are tricky__extremely tricky. First off you've got residential, commercial, outdoor lighting and much more all billed at different rates for non-fuel charge, fuel-charge, storm charge etc etc.

So__it's possible that one of the costs could increase by twenty percent__or double or possibly triple without effecting the "power bill total" to a similar degree or greatly.

It's safe to say that in New England "power bills" have spiked, some 20% or even more. Twenty percent of $65 is $13.00 which is not exactly the end of the world.

In Florida, where most homes are total electric a twenty percent spike could mean an extra $60 per month during peak season.

Point is that the topic is much to complicated to toss % around willy nilly without providing a reliable billing site.

CNS news is L. Brent Bozell III and not worthy of the time. It's bullsht__just sayin.

Using your "logic" (speaking generously):

IMO, even if they don't provide any real tangible proof that connects Obama to the actual IRS Scandal, he's past history if no other reason than he created the atmosphere that led to the retaliatory nature of IRS scandal. Good riddance
