Too bad for you 111 Democrats were on Bush's side even if some of them turned into weasels for no other reason than political gain.
So how does it feel being the elephant?
Congress not only gave Bush the authority to go into Iraq but fund the soldiers in Iraq - including a significant number of Democrats.
See how THAT works??
Now get off. You're squishing me.
Mostly based on Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld's numerous lies. God Carol you are even more stupid than first imagined. Facts, common sense, reality are all ignored by you idiots. By the way how did that little Iraq thing work out for us...Where is that fake concern for all of the veterans you sacrificed and now you attempt to use them as pawns to furthur your greed and and power. How any self thinking American could ever vote for you lying hypocrites is beyond me.

Your party is self destructing. Thanks teaparty.
A new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows that both sides are losing as far as public opinion on who's responsible.

According to the survey, 25% of Americans think the two sides are equally responsible for the government shutdown, while 36% place more blame on Republicans in Congress and 33% place more blame on President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/05/gove...

That's only a 3% margin and Obama's approval is in the tank at 37%.

Probably not a good idea to be too confident too soon.

<quoted text>Republicans agreed and overwhelmingly supported the Idea of adding 7 Trillion dollars to the Federal Deficit to pay for Medicare Part D too which is part of the Reason why ACA is so Expensive and is designed to cover the 7 trillion dollars that the Republicans added to the Federal Deficit.
That is why the Dems included this in Obamacare and unanimously voted for it?

More ObamaKare in the news....

Obamacare forces layoffs of healthcare Workers

"Due to the new regulations and lower reimbursement rates, many healthcare providers are laying off massive amounts of workers to offset the costs of Obamacare. In 2009, Obama visited the Cleveland Clinics and touted that the example they provide would be what Obamacare would provide nationwide. Technically, he's right, just not for the better.
“And part of the reason it works well is because they've set up a system where patient care is the number-one concern, not bureaucracy, what forms have to be filled out, what do we get reimbursed for. Those are changes that I think the American people want to see.”- Obama
Ironically, it's the bureaucracy that is forcing the Cleveland Clinic to cut 330 million from it's budget and to lay off 3,000 of it's 39,000 workforce. A spokesman for the clinic told Fox News that the moves were necessary because the increased costs of Obamacare and the lower reimbursement rates for services. Another spokesman for the clinic says that the situation facing the Cleveland Clinic are not unique and are felt all across America.
Jay Carney refused to discuss the cutbacks at the Cleveland Clinics.

Again, you demonstrate your very poor skills with reading and comprehending the written English language.
I said, avoid states with failing economies like California, etc. If a person chooses to live in a state with a failing economy, that is their choice. They should feel proud of themselves for choosing such a place to starve.
I wouldn't make anyone live anywhere they don't want to live. And, I'm not going to pay someone to live where they want to live if they can't support themselves there.
If you don't like Texas, don't go. There's lots of work here for other people. It's so good here, there's probably 10 million illegal aliens in just the state of Texas doing the work Obama's base won't do.
Here's something else for you to consider. There's no shortage of technical jobs. There is a shortage of people qualified to do those jobs.
What's the Democrat plan to fix that?
The Democrats plan to train people for technical jobs is to fund education. Republican plan is to take money from education, give tax breaks for the wealthy, start a war to protect oil profits and send young Americans off to be killed so that they don't need jobs.

The only thing we "hate" is the ideology held by those in power who have a goal of total control by dividing and conquering.

Why would anyone love or embrace that kind of ideology?

Especially here in America?

Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat. Hate to break it to you.

Pelosi had the same Intel as Bush, Cheney, the UN and the CIA.

For her to suggest Democrats were purposely given different information proves how dumb she must be or how dumb you are for believing her.

Pelosi is the only who lied. She's the #1 weasel.

You teaparty people only became aware of things when President Obama was elected. Before that you were all in a coma; the statements made by you and the other teapartyers on here reflect that.
It's a black thang lily__this thread went up seconds after Obama was elected and well before he was even sworn in. The first hundred pages tell the story__these people are racist scumbags, nothing Obama could do would turn them around.

Lily, you will never understand that the tea party movement was ONLY about government being held accountabile AFTER the economic crisis which spurred the movement as much as it was about Obama's promise to make government even bigger and even less accountable.
Conservative Republicans figured out that government had, indeed, gotten out of control and, yes, they were partly responsible.
Democrats are just as clueless as ever when even when they were equally, if not more, responsible.
What do you have against government accountability anyway?
Wouldn't you expect the same from a Republican administration after the economic crisis?
The difference is that President Obama did put the costs of the wars on the books that Bush kept hidden. All of a sudden, the rightwingers woke up! Did you all think the wars were free?$2 billion a week comes from where? Did you think when Bush left office that there was a clean slate? All the bills were paid and a surplus existed like when Clinton left the White House?
Your naivete is astounding.
