And we had a budget surplus.
Thanks George Bush!
We were attacked.

The budget surplus was from gutting the military, the way barock is doing now.

This enables dictators like pootin to re-build the wall.

History will not be kind to the 0rganizer.

On September 20, 2007, bill H.R. 1585 , the Feingold-Reid Amendment, was brought to the Senate floor for a vote. The bill authorized the defunding of troops in Iraq and called for the redeployment of troops from Iraq.

John McCain voted against the bill, which was defeated 70-28.

Barack Obama voted for this bill along with 27 other anti-war democrats.

In 2008, the recession hit with a vengeance. There were three quarters where the economy contracted. The subprime mortgage crisis of 2006 and the banking liquidity crisis of 2007 had finally spread to the general economy and the stock market.

The BEA revised estimate shows the economy contracted 8.3%, much worse than the 5.4% contraction originally proposed. It is also worse than any quarterly contraction in any recession since The Great

2008 GDP for the Year:-.03%, the worst since the 1982 recession.

Q4 2008 GDP:-8.3%

Q3 2008 GDP:-2.0%

Q2 2008 GDP: 2.0%

Q1 2008 GDP:-2.7%

You can stop with the foolish rhetoric. The numbers don't lie. To go with the collapse of the shrinking GDP in 2008, here are the numbers from the failed stock markets for the last period of the Bush regime.

New York Stock Exchange, peaked on October 9, 2007 with a closing price of 14,164.53. On October 11, 2007, the DJIA hit an intra-day peak of 14,198.10 before starting its decline.

The decline of 20% by mid-2008 was in tandem with other stock markets across the globe. On September 29, 2008, the DJIA had a record-breaking drop of 777.68 with a close at 10,365.45. The DJIA hit a market low of 6,443.27 on March 6, 2009, having lost over 54% of its value since the October 9, 2007 high

In February 2007, a coming recession and bear market was predicted by Paul Lamont due to a growing debt bubble, the housing bubble and lack of car sales.[12]

High oil prices have impacted global economic growth, causing the Dow's 12th bear market since 1962 and the first since 2002 according to The Washington Post.[13]

Tom Petruno of the LA Times points out that "the U.S. stock market meltdown this year isn't happening in isolation. Major European stock markets also are down more than 20% since Jan. 1. In Japan, the Nikkei index hit a 26-year low this week

Gosh, if only you can fix that time machine, you can go back and warn them!

Of course, you might want to go back to Beirut when 241 Americans died when Reagan left them out to dry.

241 is more people than 4.

Most of the job creation took place in Republican controlled states. If DumBama had anything to do with it, job creation would have taken place in liberal states too. But as recent reports show, our economy only grew 1/10th of a percent for the first quarter.
Don't matter, it still grew. Most of those jobs in those red states stemmed from an exit from highly populated larger cities and not for what you think that the red meat eaters did. Its been a trend for decades to relocate to southern states for a better quality of life. Oh yea, your rusty azz state has suffered population decline and it will continue to suffer loss. How many new jobs did OH gain under a republican governor?

No, the real problem is that DumBama and the Democrats have expanded our social programs so large that it makes no sense to work. Government benefits pay more than many jobs so nobody wants to take those jobs.

A Republican lawmaker is renewing his push for a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attack following the release of emails tying a White House aide to former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice's controversial Sunday show statements about the attack.
Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, calling for a select committee to be established to conduct an investigation, interview Obama administration officials and hold public hearings on the probe.
"It is now abundantly clear that senior White House staff were directly involved in coordinating the messaging in response to the Benghazi attacks and were actively working to tie the reason to the infamous Internet video," Wolf wrote Wednesday.
New emails indicate a White House adviser helped prep Rice for her Sunday show appearances and pushed the explanation linking the attack to an anti-Islamic film -- and now, the White House is facing credibility questions after having downplayed their role in Rice's "talking points."
Wolf argues in the letter that the new evidence underscores the need for a select committee with subpoena power and the authority to read classified documents. Boehner has previously stated he opposes the creation of a select committee.
In January, three family members of victims of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack wrote to Boehner demanding that a select committee be established to probe the attack. So far, Boehner has only authorized House committees to investigate the matter.
During a heated briefing with reporters Wednesday afternoon, Press Secretary Jay Carney repeatedly tried to claim that the so-called "prep call" with Rice -- as it was described in one email -- was not about Benghazi. The prep session, he said, was just about the demonstrations elsewhere in the Muslim world that week.
"It is not about Benghazi -- it is about the protests around the Muslim world," Carney claimed.
The White House has said all along that Rice relied on the best available intelligence, from the intelligence community, when she discussed the Benghazi attack.
But the documents obtained and released by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, included a Sept. 14, 2012, email from White House aide Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.
The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Carney.
In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.
The email lists the following two goals, among others:
"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."
"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."
Republican critics, who have long claimed the administration's narrative was politically motivated, pointed to that email as a "smoking gun."
But Carney insisted that the Rhodes email was distinct from the intelligence community talking points in that it referred to preparing Rice for questions about the protests elsewhere.
"They were about the general situation in the Muslim world," Carney said, going so far
No one cares abut Benghazi, IRS, VA, Fast an Furious except FOx.. Americans are saying,'do your damn job or get the hell outta the way.' Its the economy/jobs you dumb azz teapublicans.
