Okay Carol, let's take your so called "misrepresentations” one at a time.
You made the claim at least three times that we had a $20 trillion deficit when in fact our total debt isn't that high. The debt is the total amount owed and the deficit is the difference between revenues and outlays. The deficit has in fact dropped during the Obama administration and is on track to shrink to $514 billion due to a combination of increased revenue and budget cuts. So yes Carol there is a difference.
Your Capital/Capitol confusion came during one of your more inane rants about banning electronic cigarettes on Capitol grounds. Would you as a teacher accept such sloppiness from a student?
Yes Carol you on several occasions especially this winter tried to point out that because certain areas of the country were experiencing record cold that global warming wasn't occurring. Let's not forget about your stupid remarks about the ship caught in Antarctic ice.
The "Salinsky" thing is just another example of sloppiness in posting. And no liar I knew who Saul Alinsky was and pointed out to you on many occasions that the Tea Party is one of the largest practitioners of his theories.
Your "research" on Martin Luther was not accurate. He was never tasked by the Church to translate the Bible. My sources are Lew Durant's volume The Reformation and Harold J. Grimm's book The Reformation Era 1500-1650. What's your source Carol?
On more than one occasion you stated that after 9/11 we had to prevent Saddam Hussein from developing WMD. So that's a lie.
Reagan didn't put any kind of sanctions on Iraq after the Kurdish massacre. The Reagan administration said ‘yes Iraq used chemical weapons on the Kurds’. They did not dispute that, in fact they had intelligence intercepts proving it, but their next response was that sanctions, even cutting off the $700m a year that the US was giving Iraq in 1988, that was too extreme a response to Iraq gassing the Kurds.
I never said that Democrats were given different intelligence liar; I said that Congress and the American people were giver doctored information.
Starting today I'm going to start the "Carol File" and archive every instance you've lied or shown that you don't know what the hell you're talking about complete with dates and the number of the posting.
Your right the total debt isn't 20 trillion the debt clock is edging closer to 18 trillion as we speak but the REAL number of indebtness must include the UNFUNDED DEBT which is a staggering 120+ trillion dollars!

Unfunded debt. WTF?

This idea of calling unfunded liabilities (from medicare & SS) debt is dumber than sh*t.

It ain't debt. It has not been spent. Congress can end it anytime or Congress can make adjustments (as they have done in the past).

Heres why Obama's second term was "disastrous" to Republicans:
Unemployment down to 6.3%!
Car sales up 8%!
Stock market at record levels!
Consumer spending up 0.9%(Fastest pace in nine years!)
Inflation at only 1.5%!
Interest rates at record lows!
Housing market has recovered!
More Americans insured every day!
Wars ending, troops coming home!
OMG your icon is hilarious...reminds me of those dried apple caricatures you can buy in craft swaps! I don't like Republicans or Democrats but the statistics you are claiming defy any use of common sense. Let's review shall we:

A. Unemployment numbers are very deceiving on the surface. What you should be asking is what is the participation rate in the job market? Shockingly BAD. We have seen this low of number of people participating in the job market in over 35 years!

B. Stock Market has been artificially propped by the fed buying back it's own bonds BILLIONS per month since we can no longer 'sell' them to foreign investors like China.

C. Consumer spending is up because INFLATION is up don't be fooled by the government's inflation numbers because they DO NOT include these critical areas of cost: 1. FOOD,
2. ENERGY and then 3. HOUSING. When you leave out the biggest three factor which cause inflation in the first place whatever number you come up with is a deception from the truth!

D. Interest rates are low because our economy is stagnant if not already going backwards the last GDP show (-) 2.9%....scary number!

E. ObamaCare is a system chocked full of problems including huge number of potential FRAUD enrollees. Read the IG report...

F. Housing has NOT recovered only pockets of recovery have happened like in Washington D.C. which is the boomtown of America.

G. Wars ending? What about Iraq over run with terrorist considered more violent and crazy than Al Qaida and they have the US as their personal target. Obama released 5 Top Commander of the Taliban who are only restricted to 1 year exile to Qatar then they can leave and repatriate Afghanistan since Obama announced we are leaving. The same thing that is happening in Iraq will be the future of Afghanistan and the Taliban.

H. Oh I forgot the cars sells....yeah GM is doing really peachy aren't they? LOL. Get real your claims are all smoke and mirrors just like this president!

In response to That Hobby Lobby Ruling Is Just Like ISIS Imposing Sharia Law:
That's a pretty stunning display of sheer ignorance, or more likely deliberate mendacity. The liberal response to Hobby Lobby is all about emotional exhibitionism, going over the top, conjuring a fantasy villain so everyone can join hands and sing "We Shall Overcome." It's a hysterical release of energy, bottled up by frustration at Obama's disastrous second term and the looming midterm-election catastrophe. The Left really needed a win here, but more importantly, they needed emotional validation. They can still get that by squalling like babies with soiled diapers, and taking note of how many fellow travelers are squalling right along with them.

If only the Supreme Court could limit this president's use of his pen and cellphone.
Then he might have to talk to people in Congress to make decisions for the betterment of the country in a two-party system (he must have missed that part in his constitutional studies at Harvard) instead of insisting on bettering his own agenda and enforcing a fundamentally unconstitutional one-party system.
Just a hopeful solution.
You keep forgetting nitwit that the Republicans drew the line when they took a blood oath to block and obstruct anything coming out of the Obama White House and that Mitch McConnell openly stated that the main objective of the GOP was to make Barack Obama a one term president. These are people that are unlikely to respond to any kind of outreach. Were the Republicans concerned with solving the problems that the country found itself in or were they just playing politic?
Contrary to your false assertions, the President has on numerous occasions attempted to reach out. Back in March of 2013 he was reaching out to rank and file Republicans to broker some kind of deal to reduce the deficit Republican senator Lindsay Graham stated;
"I'm very encouraged by what I see from the president in terms of what I see in terms of substance and tone," He's calling people -- this is how you solve our problems. He's working the phones, talking about ... how can we get more people in the mix."
As part of his outreach, Obama invited a number of Republican senators to dinner at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington. Those who attended were, Sens. Graham, John McCain (AZ), Kelly Ayotte (NH), Roy Blunt (MO), Pat Toomey (PA), Rob Portman (OH), Bob Corker (TN) and Ron Johnson (WI).

Wrong again my progressive lib parrot. GM has MILLIONS AND MILLIONS in costly recalls and numerous fatalities and injuries caused by defective parts which will cost this company an enormous amount of money to settle. The only thing I agree with is GM fired some people directly responsible wish we could at least get that much accountability out of our Federal Govt.
