Does he constantly blame his predecessor for his inabilities? Does he say high sounding things that tickle your ears? That's probably not the guy to vote for.
In our system, money is always taken from someone, and given to someone else. All politicians preach fairness, but have no idea what it really means.All politicians operate on a premise of plausible deniability, and find someone else to blame. They are all masters of double speak and deception. But to your point, Obama has taken these traits to the highest level.

You're killing me, really, I didn't know you could see how people in Washington vote from a computer. I wanted to know how "YOU" know who the right ones are. I'll tell you, very few. Votes from our elected officials are a mere formality. The "Deal" was done long before it came to a vote. How these officials vote, and why, is most often tied to one piece of legislation they wanted, along with many they did not want. In other words, their vote was bought.

All of you retarded rightwingnut cases conveniently forget the massive spending of the Repuglies when they are in the whitehouse! History doesn't lie that it is the Dems who have to clean up the horrendous mess of the so called haters of "big Government". The Rightwing Greedy Oligarch Prostitute party hates our democratic republic and wants to replace it with their Corporate Power that would leave us no better than serfs. Wake the F@ck Up!! Look up the signs of fascism, or corporatism, to see the playbook they're operating from. Read a goddamn book!

If dems are tax and spend ! The republicans are borrow and spend ! Case in point the republicans I.E. Bush started two wars for the first time in history without any revenue to pay for it ! in 04 they passed a drug prescription program with once more no way of paying for it ! Ya i see your point..And last time we had a balanced budget ? When Clinton left office ! Bush started with a surplus ... Any Questions ? Then kick in the Feds with their QE1-2-3-and 40 billion a month ? Gee i wonder where all this money is coming from ?? But then i guess seeing that 1% of the USA are millionaires , but 48 % of CONGRESS are millionairs . Hmmmm? What a racket ...

Facts are facts When George W. Bush took office, the federal government was running a surplus of $86 billion. When he left, that had turned into a $642 billion deficit.And he did it with a republican congress ..

The Stimulus Cost Much Less Than Bush's Wars, Tax Cuts

Republicans frequently have blamed the $787 billion stimulus for the national debt, but, when all government spending is taken into account, the stimulus frankly wasn't that big. In contrast, the U.S. will have spent nearly $4 trillion on wars Republicans have blasted the Affordable Care Act as "budget-busting." But health care reform actually reduces the deficit, according to the Congressional Budget Office.Defense spending constituted 20 percent of federal spending last year, or $718 billion, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. This adds up to 41 percent of the world's defense spending,So i just do not see your view as being accurate..These are the facts ...

You are 100 % right ! There are no more real men and woman who can lead in Congress. and no moderation at all . The real Reagan and TIP O'neals anymore. They are all hard liners with only their pet projects. No real people to do the country business... So sad we have the best government money can buy...only in the USA baby...
