Ruskie? Do you bend over and grab your ankles when you see one like Obama The Flexible. He is so flexible, he can draw a line in the sand with a straw held between his teeth and hands flat on the ground.

Deficit reduction and a balanced budget was the result of a promise kept by the Republicans and their Contract with America. Clinton's advisors moved him to the center politically where he began working more closely and collaboratively with the Republican Congress.
Them's the facts.
To Ultra Left-Wing Socialist Liberal Progressive Democrats, History is malleable.

And to Joseph Goebbels, too.

They have company! How nice!

<quoted text> How did O'stupidcare start: The Senate scrapped every word of a House bill on veterans housing benefits and inserted more than 2,000 pages of O'bamacare. So not only did the democrats screw the Vets, they screwed the entire country.
LOL. There you go quoting word for word from an article on the Pacific Legal Foundation's challenge to the Affordable Care Act without giving them credit. You are such a phony.

"The Senate scrapped every word of a House bill on veterans housing benefits and inserted more than 2,000 pages of Obamacare."

Excuse the mixing of metaphors but sonic is fishing for a sucker so he can beat some more dead horses.

There is a strong sense here that you are still in your formative years looking for a stable self-image.

Clinton gets too much credit for the good economy of the 1990s, which was already growing when he took office. The Republican-controlled Congress helped improve the economy by exercising fiscal restraint.

Clinton's failure to regulate the financial-services markets enabled the bad lending and Wall Street scams that led to the 2007 banking crisis.

I distinctly recall Bubba's first month in office when he said we were going to raise taxes.

The Republican Congress took him aside into the woodshed. The next week, Bubba was talking about tax cuts and Welfare reform.

America loved him:-)

Maybe an idiot like you can explain why the Democrats have won the popular vote in the last five elections. Besides we are all aware that your party is a dying breed. Neanderthals like you are becoming extinct.
Beauty is only skin deep.

What is popular is not always right and what is right is not always popular.

Ghost has no idea what extreme value these adages offer us.

These are only a few of the gaping holes in Ghost's shallow wading pool of reality.

Ronald Reagan: Just a reminder

"Well, I learned a lot....I went down to (Latin America) to find out from them and (learn) their views. You'd be surprised. They're all individual countries."

"Facts are stupid things."

"Trees cause more pollution than automobiles."

"All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk."

"Approximately 80 percent of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources."

"We are trying to get unemployment to go up, and I think we're going to succeed."

Criticizing Ed Asner for opposing American foreign policy: "What does an actor know about politics?"

On Clint Eastwood's bid to become mayor of Carmel: "What makes him think a middle-aged actor, who's played with a chimp, could have a future in politics?"

"My name is Ronald Reagan. What's yours?" The individual responded, "I'm your son, Mike," to which Reagan replied, "Oh, I didn't recognize you."

And yet, Rethugs still think this man was somehow "special". Special indeed. In the mentally ill category.

Our president called a summit to discuss concussions in football.
Must be a lull in domestic and foreign affairs.
(Where in the Constitution can I find the role of the Federal Government and the Executive Branch is to oversee and regulate football accidents?)
It is sad and synonymously hilarious that this jerk jumps on gay marriage, gender gaps, the "New Subtle Racism", Football Brain Concussions, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" and racist remarks of a Basketball Team owner while the economy sucks and the world drifts away from America's influence leaving it irrelevant in this century going forward.

And his First Cow wants our children to eat vegetables.

Ours is now a country run by Access Hollywood and The Tonight Show.

It isn't "scandal after scandal". It is just one Republican conspiracy after another, after another.
