We dropped 8.9 percent of GDP in Q4 2008. We lost 800,000 jobs in January 2009. We passed the stimulus. And then the next quarter we saw the biggest jobs improvement in 30 years.
It's started an electric battery industry from scratch. It jump-started the smart grid. It's bringing our pen-and-paper medical system into the digital age. It's got Race to the Top which is the biggest education program in decades. It's got the biggest middle-class tax cuts since the Reagan era. It prevented seven million people from falling behind the poverty line.
You're an idiot Galt; you always have been and always will be!
That should be plenty of proof for normal people. of course normality and Galt like most baggers are consumed by their own self induced political hatred.

You're full of crap as usual Frank. The problems in Iraq can be directly attributed to George W Bush's disastrous invasion that gave free rein to the various factions that Saddam Hussein kept in check. It's not like they didn't know it was going to happen either. Here's what Dick Cheney said in 1995;
"Once you got to Iraq and took it over and took down Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you gonna put in its place? That’s a very violent part of the world, and if you take down the central government in Iraq, you can easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off. Part of it the Syrians would like to have to the west; part of eastern Iraq the Iranians would like to claim, fought over for eight years; in the north you’ve got the Kurds. The Kurds spin loose and join with the Kurds in Turkey then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It’s a, it’s a quagmire.
Another thing was casualties. Everyone was impressed with the fact that we were able to do our job with as few casualties as we had. But for the 146 Americans killed in action, and for their families, it wasn’t a cheap war. And the question for the president, in terms of whether or not we went on to Baghdad and took additional casualties in an effort to get Saddam Hussein, was how many additional dead Americans is Saddam worth? And our judgement was not very many and I think we got it right."
Of course that was before Halliburton got into financial trouble because of Cheney's actions as CEO and needed an influx of revenue that their no bid contracts to provide shoddy and overpriced services in Iraq provided them.
And let's give Bush the credit that's due for the fact that Hamas is in charge of Gaza.
much of the blame goes to President George W. Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for pushing prematurely for parliamentary elections and then--when they didn't like the outcome--a bungled coup that left Hamas triumphant and in total control.
Warned that Fatah wasn't ready for elections in which Palestinians fed up with years of Arafat's corruption and cronyism might punish Abbas' party, President Bush said he "wanted to give Palestinians the chance to choose new leaders, ones who were not 'compromised by terror.'" But in January 2006, that's exactly what Bush got, as Hamas won 76 of 132 seats in the Palestinian parliament. As the New York Times reported at the time:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice acknowledged Sunday that the United States had failed to understand the depth of hostility among Palestinians toward their longtime leaders. The hostility led to an election victory by the militant group Hamas that has reduced to tatters crucial assumptions underlying American policies and hopes in the Middle East.
You're an idiot Frank; you always have been and always will be!
Ms. Rice brokered the deal to give the liberals in America exactly what they wanted, GAZA went to the Arabs. It was a mistake. But the dumb asses like you insisted if the poor poor Palestinians could have GAZA, there would be peace. So we ran a little experiment, gave the terrorist aka Palestinians and liberals what they said would bring peace, and guess what? Liberals were wrong. Boom. While O'bama is bombing Iraq, Israel should be blowing up GAZA, no one cares about it anymore. The media is gone.

So, what you're saying is, when Obama declared Iraq a stable democracy, he was lying, right?

Government programs work towards helping people get out of poverty.
There are just as many poor people now as there were in the sixties when the Great Society was started.$50 trillion dollars and nothing. Get the government out of the way and let people do what people do. Prosper! This country needs to get back to a federal government and away from a national government. Back to the constitution. If not this country will fragment into at least 6 parts.

Obama staffs the White House with the Muslim Brotherhood and funds Al Qaeda's miraculous recovery from when Bush had them holed up in caves, and it's Bush's fault they invaded Iraq.

<quoted text>If you never served in the military there is no way you will ever understand what it takes or what an honor it is to serve. No Liberal can understand the concept of Patriotism. Those that have the mental and physical fortitude to serve proudly for our country learn and apply teamwork skills and leadership traits that can't be matched in an every day environment, and once learned and acquired out pace those learned by their civilian counterparts. In the military,they instill structure and uniformed policies, yet members are able to work in dynamic situations. They are all volunteers and are Patriotic, loyal and committed to their organization. I am proud of every one that honorably serves. Over ninety percent of Presidents of The United States have proudly served.
Yeah, sure Frank that's why when pro war, pro draft Mitt Romney was sitting on the sidelines in France and Dick Cheney was attending to his "other priorities" liberals like John Kerry was manning a moving target on the Mekong Delta and Max Cleland was leaving three limbs on the battlefield. Even Al Gore served in Vietnam.
You're claim that ninety percent of US Presidents served in a bit off. Of the 43 individuals that have been President, 25 served in some capacity and 18 didn't. That makes 58% who served. If you only count those who served in harm's way then the percentage is even lower.

Yet another right whiner defending the use of racial slurs.

If a professional analysis demonstrated that Republicans routinely pay campaign staffers who are persons of color significantly less than their white counterparts and are often given less glamorous jobs, articles on the subject would make the front page of newspapers across the country and be the lead story on many television newscasts.

Instead, a study conducted by the New Organizing Institute proves the “ugly truth” about Democrats: If you’re a person of color hoping to get hired by a political campaign, you’ll probably get paid less than your white counterparts, assuming, that is, you’re hired at all. Does anyone believe this would receive equal media coverage if the party in question was the GOP? Daily Beast reporter Tim Mak reported the findings in an August 11 article entitled

“Democrats Play Black Staffers 30% Less”:

African-American staffers on Democratic campaigns were paid 70 cents for each dollar their white counterparts made. For Hispanic staffers in Democratic campaigns, the figure was 68 cents on the dollar.

LOL-big tent democrats...everyone is welcome we just don't want to pay your dumb black ass.

All one ever has to come to grips with is all of the lies you and your party conjured up to create the total mess that still and forever will be your disaster in Iraq moron. Very simple to figure out. Your foolish attempt to bend, twist, lie and deceive will never work and frankly makes you look even dumber that you have proven yourself to be. Your attempt at changing history and having your own explanation is failing miserable and only furthers the "FACT" that you are one delusional freak at best.
