You have a hard enough time putting your thoughts together, please don't try to think for me.
Its usually the ones who cry racism who are the true racists.
BTW. I am not a Reagan scholar as he was a little before my time. From what little I know of Ronnie he kept unemployment low, had economic growth that blows away your hero Obama and although the national debt grew he didn't triple it to an astounding 17 trillion under his leadership. Now go blame Bush for your heroes shortcomings.<quoted text>
"not a scholar" indeed.

Since when is an increase from 10 to 16 "triple"?

Ronald Reagan actually did triple the national debt.

George W. Bush doubled the national debt.

And both did it during good economic times.

The current debt growth is related to two wars we didn't pay for, the Bush tax cuts, and the Bush Recession.

You don't have to be a scholar, but at least get some education on the basic facts.

The racial hating tea bag still has not denied Ronald Reagan doubles the federal gas tax, why? That extra strength Limbaugh nut juice can't be truthful about Ronny. If president Obama said he wanted to do that the tea bag would falsely claim that's the same thing, huh racial hating tea bag? Riiiiight

Question: Has the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) ever been less relevant or more of a joke?
Answer: No

"NAACP calls on Justice Dept., Secret Service to investigate rodeo clown flap

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face and mocked with the crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama?

The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president."

'Obama' rodeo stunt leads to sensitivity training for clowns

This week, the Missouri State Fair Commission ordered that officials and contractors hired by the state's rodeo association -- which would include cowboys and clowns -- complete sensitivity training before they are allowed to perform at the state fair again.
the clown, identified by rodeo officials as Tuffy Gessling, received a lifetime ban from performing again at the fair, which receives taxpayer funding.

Gessling was plenty sorry too, according to a post to his Facebook page captured by a local journalist: "I am sorry, I never ment to offend anyone I ment no disrespect to anyone for the joke or jokes I may have said at the rodeo, once agian i never ment to offend or hurt anyone's feelings." (The post was later deleted or made private.)

The aftershocks rippled beyond Gessling, as an attorney for the rodeo association's president, Mark Ficken, said Ficken resigned from the association because it wouldn't ban Gessling from its ranks; the Kansas City Star reported that Ficken, who is also superintendent of the Boonville School District, is being investigated by the school for any possible wrongdoing in the rodeo event.



Lots of people took the incident very seriously.

Do dismiss critics of the event as irrelevant or a joke reveals more about the poster from Chicago than those he was criticizing.

Bengaziiiiiiiiii !!!!!!!

The Benghazi attacks (the consulate and the CIA compound) are absolutely not unprecedented even though they’re being treated that way by Republicans who are deliberately ignoring anything that happened prior to Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.

January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.

February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.

December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.

March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.(I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)

September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.

January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.

March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.

July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.

September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.

That damn Hillary Clinton knew about this !! LMAO!

Military waste under fire /$1 trillion missing -- Bush plan targets Pentagon accounting
Tom Abate, San Francisco Chronicle
Tom Abate, Chronicle Staff Writer
Published 4:00 am, Sunday, May 18, 2003


Though Defense has long been notorious for waste, recent government reports suggest the Pentagon's money management woes have reached astronomical proportions. A study by the Defense Department's inspector general found that the Pentagon couldn't properly account for more than a trillion dollars in monies spent. A GAO report found Defense inventory systems so lax that the U.S.

Army lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units.

And before the Iraq war, when military leaders were scrambling to find enough chemical and biological warfare suits to protect U.S. troops, the department was caught selling these suits as surplus on the Internet "for pennies on the dollar," a GAO official said.

Congress isn't 'exempt' from Obamacare

Republicans certainly want us to think so. Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) complained about an "outrageous exemption for Congress." The far-right editorial page of the Wall Street Journal and Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint touted a similar line last week. Over the weekend, Republican media figures, including Bill Kristol and Ana Navaro, repeated the talking point on the Sunday shows, and no one thought to correct them. This morning, in an unusually hysterical piece, a Washington Times columnist suggested the policy might constitute "treason." (No, seriously, that's what it said.)

The point is that in being an obtuse smart-azz Chuck Grassley cut off the Congressional nose to spite the President's face! So now Congress actually has to participate in the health exchanges instead of those cushy cadilliac health plans that they had before. The fact that the GOTP is once again whining when they shot themselves in the foot is just too much!

Is it just me cause the irony here is soooo rich, LMAO!!!

First they said Obamacare would create death panels. Then they said the law would cover undocumented immigrants. Now they’re saying President Barack Obama gave Congress a special exemption, so that lawmakers and their staff members aren’t subject to the law.

The story is everywhere, from the Wall Street Journal editorial page to Fox News. Some high-profile Republicans are in high dudgeon over it. Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn called it an “outrageous exemption for Congress.” Right-wing groups like FreedomWorks are even more worked up.“Ready your pitchforks,” one of the group’s officials said last week.

As is often the case with these arguments, this one contains an element of truth. Obamacare really does treat congressional employees differently from other people. But that’s because of an amendment written by Senator Chuck Grassley, the Iowa Republican. The amendment—almost certainly a political stunt designed to embarrass the Democrats—created an ambiguity in the law that the Obama administration had to clarify. Last week the administration issued a ruling and, sure enough, it is getting political grief over it. But there’s no reason it should.

Republicans Fear Clinton in 2016

Overhearing discussions about Clinton in the hallway outside the RNC meeting, Jorge Landivar, a Ron Paul-backing delegate to the 2012 Republican convention from Texas, chimed in:“All the polls say she will destroy anyone that we put up — it’s [f---ng] terrifying.” National polling from Quinnipiac University finds that Clinton, the most popular national political figure, would defeat New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 45 – 37 percent; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio 50 – 34 percent and Rep. Paul Ryan 50 – 38 percent.

And one former Romney aide here warned that grassroots activists pushing for an even more conservative GOP identity could seal the party’s fate:“If we listen to some of the people here and come back with a hardline conservative in 2016, she’ll wipe the floor with us.”

The teabaggers will be jumping off of bridges after Clinton wins the Presidency....LMAO!

Conservatives across the board concerned about a Hillary Clinton run in 2016
So obviously the looming threat of a 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential run is keeping a lot of Republicans, conservatives, Tea Partiers, and Libertarians up long into the night
Will Fox News run any specials on the Republican presidential candidates for 2016, or will any of those candidates find themselves employed by Fox or even given their own show at some point before the election in 2016? Stranger things have happened. Look no further than former presidential candidate and current Fox News employee Mike Huckabee.

Republicans Secretly Think Hillary Clinton Will Crush Them In 2016

As Republicans begin to gear up for the 2016 presidential race, GOP insiders have one major concern that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the RNC's autopsy report.

Her name is Hillary Clinton, and Republicans worry that they won't have a shot against her, regardless of what changes the party makes before 2016.

Although most Republican strategists would not go on the record disparaging the party's chances, in private conversations with Business Insider, many savvy GOP insiders conceded that any Republican nominee would face an uphill battle against the former Secretary of State.

"If she runs, it'll be almost impossible, I fear," one Washington-based Republican strategist told Business Insider.
