I read your first couple of sentences and your last one. Hilarious. Want to discuss Obama's budget? Wait.....he hasn't had a budget the entire time he has been in office! WHAT?
Ooops, looks like that talking point gets shot down.

Thanks for playing.

No president has been a perfect president but it amazes me that the left defends Obama with what Bush may or may not have done. LOL What Obama does is not about Bush. The left need to defend the Obama issues/ideology and leave Bush out of it. Bush doesn't have a thing to do with the happenings in America today. Only time will tell but I believe Bush will end up in History in a much better position than Obama who may actually be the president that brings America completely to her knees. No matter all her (America) problems she was still the best nation in the world. No one can deny America's world position has deteriorated since Obama was elected. And more Americans support the socialist view than ever before. The sad part about that is history proves socialism doesn't work in the long run. I love my country but I fear she will never go back to what we all grew up knowing. Very Sad to me.
+1 very well stated.

No President has been perfect, or anywhere near close to it. When approximately half the country is "against" you from the "beginning", it's quite difficult, regardless of what happens, there's going to be a lot of antipathy against any (real or perceived) accomplishments.

Sad thing is, there are so many people (the clueless and uneducated) that don't know enough or, perhaps, care enough about what's actually happening. Many of them rely on the government for their housing, food, phones, etc. Many of them believe what they're told, beginning in elementary school, without verifying or learning about it themselves.

The very best example of this I frequently reference is when some ding-a-ling says "the rich don't pay their FAIR share of taxes". Facts are: around half the households in this country don't pay ANY federal income tax and around the top 10% of wage earners pay around 70% of the federal income taxes. I understand FAIR is a subjective term, but anyone with some logic and rational thought will know and understand that the rich pay more than their FAIR share of taxes. Should they pay more? Perhaps, but that's a different discussion...

In the long run (over many years), if more people in this country want this to be a socialist country, it will likely end up that way. Why?(At least) partially because the clueless and uneducated don't know any better (or don't care)...

Or, as usual, maybe not, as they won't respond with anything worth reading...

...Facts are: around half the households in this country don't pay ANY federal income tax
How can we stand for this, it just isn't FAIR...

Who doesnít pay taxes, in eight charts
Posted by Brad Plumer on September 18, 2012 at 11:34 am
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...

1) About 46.4 percent of U.S. households didnít pay federal income taxes in 2011.

2) That number is abnormally high right now in part due to the recession and slow recovery. When people lose their jobs or see their paychecks drop, they tend to pay fewer income taxes as well.(Thatís why the budget deficit tends to increase in a bad economy.) Additionally, Congress has passed a slew of tax cuts as part of its stimulus efforts. So thatís skewed the number of nonpayers. When the economyís at full employment, as it was in 2007, itís usually only about 40 percent of U.S. households that arenít paying income taxes...

3) The vast majority of households that donít pay federal income taxes are either elderly or paying payroll taxes. As you can see below, 60 percent of those who donít pay income tax are still working and paying taxes for Social Security and Medicare. Their tax liability is just too low to qualify for the income tax. Another 22 percent of non-payers are retirees.

Only about 7.9 percent of households are not paying any federal taxes at all. Thatís usually because theyíre either unemployed or on disability or students or are very poor.

4) Many low-income workers donít pay federal income taxes thanks, in part, to a series of tax cuts endorsed by Republicans over the years.

...For instance, most (though not all) elderly households are excluded from paying taxes on their Social Security benefits. And low-income workers with children can qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Child Tax Credit. As Keith Hennessey explains, the latter was a major GOP initiative during the 1990s and 2000s, and conservatives used to tout them as vital poverty-reduction measures...

5) The number of people who donít pay federal income taxes tends to jump every time thereís a big tax cut bill, as after the 1986 tax reform or the 2001 Bush tax cuts. Thereís a reason why George W. Bush was boasting, in 2004, about moving 5 million taxpayers ďoff the rolls.Ē He didnít think he was creating an army of Obama voters. He thought it was good policy...

6) About 30 percent of workers had a negative income tax in 2011, thanks to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which gives them a big refund. But these beneficiaries tend to leave the program fairly quickly.

...What research has shown, however, is that most EITC recipients only get the credit for two consecutive years or less. Many of them soon move up the income ladder and start paying taxes back into the system.

7) Over their full lifetime, the vast majority of workers end up paying income taxes and federal taxes. As this graph from the Hamilton project shows, itís mainly the very young and the very old who arenít paying income taxes. The vast majority of workers pay income taxes during their prime years, and an even higher percentage of Americans pay into Medicare and Social Security throughout their lives...

8) Federal taxes are just part of the picture. Most Americans also pay state and local taxes, such as sales taxes. These tend to be more regressive and hit lower-income groups harder.

<quoted text> If there is a response to post 9311 and they are in disagreement in the 9311 post they need to study up because that is exactly how things went down. Obama and administration may never be held accountable for the lives lost in Benghazi but they will forever be responsible for NOT answering the call for Help and telling the American people lies to cover it up. There is no room for an argument on this situation. It is a "It is what it is". When I think back on how Obama and his talking heads tried to make the attack about a video it makes me sick to my stomach that a President of the United States would stoop so low with untruths about American citizens being murdered by America's # one enemy which is the Muslims who hate and want to kill us. Some claim not all Muslims are haters but you never see any condemning the actions of haters.
Obama is as low as they come. I truly believe in my heart and he and his wife both despise this country and all that it stands(stood) for. The libs are so happy that the conservatives are "seemingly" being brought to their knees(they aren't), but those braindead individuals aren't intelligent enough to realize that they would(will?) be going down, too. That is what is so astounding.

A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering ďhope and changeĒ isnít it?

You are right Obama's budgets have never passed. Obama's budget in 2012 failed in the Senate 99-0. In 2011 it failed 97-0. Pretty bad when you can't get Harry Reid and Demos to vote for it.:)

Swore on Koran? The e-mail says "when he was sworn into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran" Ė bunk yet again. Obama did not place his hand on the Koran when he was sworn into the U.S. Senate. This claim confuses Obama with the first and only Muslim member of Congress, Democratic House member Keith Ellison of Minnesota. Obama was sworn in using his own Bible, as widely reported in newspaper accounts and pictured above. That's his wife holding the Bible with Vice President Dick Cheney swearing him in.(Under the Constitution, the vice president serves as president of the Senate.)
