Obama VOTED for the $800 billion bailout in 2008, and openly backed it on the campaign. So you’re just all twisted up into a hypocritical ball for claiming that doesn’t count on Obama. House Republicans, remember, voted the thing down. It passed on the 2nd vote with Democrats heavily outweighing Republicans. And Obama got to use HALF those funds for his own projects (more on that below). He could have given the money back, you know.
Further, the $787 stimulus THAT OBAMA FEARMONGERED TO PASS will actually cost this country $3.27 trillion because it contains programs that will continue to need to be funded even after the stimulus funds are used up. And that isn’t even being COUNTED yet. Not one single penny of that was Bush’s. Not one.
Then Obama passed the largest Omnibus bill ever seen in human history – complete with nearly 9,000 earmarks. Bush had nothing to do with it.
Then there’s Obama’s federal budget:$3.6 trillion, by far and away the largest in the history of any government in the world. That isn’t Bush’s budget, Bozo.
If that isn’t enough, Obama has abused his “half” of the $800 billion bailout to a degree that is simply shocking: we are actually now on the hook for $23.7 trillion because Obama’s Treasury “leveraged” the federal government.
I’ll stop with a quote from the Wall Street Journal:
“Mr. Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget blueprint, by his own admission, redefines the role of government in our economy and society. The budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, adding more to the debt than all previous presidents — from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined. It reduces defense spending to a level not sustained since the dangerous days before World War II, while increasing nondefense spending (relative to GDP) to the highest level in U.S. history. And it would raise taxes to historically high levels (again, relative to GDP). And all of this before addressing the impending explosion in Social Security and Medicare costs.”
So you are just wrong, you just live in your little bubble, you just believe all the leftwing talking points from your Koolaid sites. You’d better just go back to them and stay there where people as crazy and self-deluded as you think you make sense.
I am voting for Charles Thompson. Dan boren is not a true conservative. Anyone who supports pelosi, Reid, Obama, must be voted out. He got his blue dog pass on healthcare and cap and tax in exchange for voting with the dems 80 percent of the time. Bye, bye Dan. Go practice law for some firm.
I do not think anyone is surprised at the outcome of this election, though some were hopeful it would be different.
The margin of 56%-44% shows an unhappiness with Mr. Boren by the 2nd District voters.
Here is a tip. Republicans have resumed the majority in the U.S. House. Watch for Dan to take a giant step to the right with his voting habits, just the way he was before 2007.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to his workers in Poteau. I went out this morning to pick up Republican campaign signs and the Boren ones were all gone. They may even have done it last night after the election results were announced.
