Bush the economy isnt there to pay for these obligations as forcasted by G.W. Bush and the only alternative is to borrow to pay the obligations.

Bruce Bartlett on Where the Right Went Wrong
Bill Moyers talks with conservative economist Bruce Bartlett, who wrote "the bible" for the Reagan Revolution, worked on domestic policy for the Reagan White House, and served as a top treasury official under the first President Bush. Now he's a heretic in the conservative circles where he once was a star. Bartlett argues that right-wing tax policies -- pushed in part by Grover Norquist and Tea Party activists -- are destroying the country's economic foundation.

The Fiscal Legacy of George W. Bush
http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/12/...
Iíve never defended Bush. In fact I was so angry at Bush in 2008 I made serious mistake. I voted for that lying turd in the white house. I didn't make that same mistake twice.

Obama is on course to add more debt than all presidents in this history of this nation. He should accomplish that sometime this year.

I donít care whoís responsible. The spending must be cut back and taxes must be raised on *everyone*. Our fiscal irresponsibility is very unfair to future generations.

Which links came from Fox News? Read the material and youíll find all material was taken from government accounting figures.

zFacts, Iím familiar with their web site. So, you found a pretty graph which supports your position. Did you fail to notice the spike into Obamaís administration? zFacts had the deficit at near zero, Obama takes office and it spikes to nearly 30%.

Do you understand the material you present?

<quoted text>Zimmerman was the one chasing Martin. He was the only one with a pre loaded weapon. His was the only weapon discharged, which resulted in a death.
The justification is being used by Zimmerman. Martin doesn't need one. He's clearly the victim at this point.
I'm not a court of law son. I'm simply looking at the facts.
He at no point chased. He did follow until the dispatcher said ďwe donít need you to do thatĒ. Listen to the 911 recording, read the transcript. Then a short while after the dispatcher wanted Zimmermanís address. He began to give the address and stopped. His reasoning was he lost the kid. He clearly didnít know where Martin was and didnít want Martin to possibly hear the address.

What happened beyond that point? Zimmerman didnít know where Martin was and then was attacked. Zimmerman ended up on the ground. Martin had no wounds except for an abrasion on his knuckle and a bullet wound. There were no defensive injuries. Do tell everyone what happened.

Review the evidence made available to the public, all of it. Youíre not looking for facts. In fact, I doubt youíve reviewed all the material.

Fox is the reason? I thought Palin was the reason, and then Limbaugh was the reason, or gay marriage was the reason, or wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was the reason, or sticking up for the wealthy was the reason. or Romney was the reason, or the war on women was the reason.
Sure are a lot of reasons out there. I guess it has nothing to do with the vastly expanding dependency rolls DumBama created. Naah, it couldn't be that. It has to be because of Fox.
all of the above...all the crazy's represent a hateful message for

Murdoch did an incredibly brilliant thing (for himself and investors) when he started Fox in the U.S.
I owned a cable TV system at the time and CNN was expensive.
Murdoch told small and middle-sized cable operators he would give them a 24-hour (so-called) news station FREE. He then told advertisers they could have input into what was broadcast on his channels.
It was a good deal for cable operators and for advertisers. But it may well have resulted in irreparable harm to the United States, as many people see only FOX and don't have enough accurate information to make good choices.
If uninformed people could understand that Fox has nothing to do with news and everything to do with putting forth the view of its advertisers, our nation would have a better chance to regain its former stature.
You should be suspicious of all news. How many times recently has MSNBC been caught presenting stories in a biased fashion? Didnít MSNBC apologize for editing the 911 transcript of George Zimmerman to make him appear racist? Do research that.

If you trust ANY news organization youíre doing yourself a disservice. Obtain your news from multiple sources, try to focus on facts only, ignore commentary.

Pew recently stated CNN and Fox both are the least trusted. Pew also stated MSNBC is far more biased than Fox. Who do you want to believe?

Youíre short on facts. The evidence in no way indicates he stalked Martin. Do you know the legal definition of stalked? Generally stalkers are not on the phone with police. How did he harass Martin? What was said? What actions?

Evidence doesnít indicate murder, the evidence better supports self-defense.

Really? A straight jacket? Got evidence?

<quoted text>lol! So far you're the one offering bullsh*t son...
1. No evidence that Zimmerman "chased" Martin. Also, not against the law to follow someone to determine what they may be up to
Ans: Sure he did. He got out of his vehicle with a loaded weapon to chase Martin after he ran.
Following after to see were someone may have gone is not "chasing" them. He had lost sight of Martin (proof: the call with the dispatcher)
Yeah wrote:
<quoted text>2. Zimmerman was perfectly legal to carry a concealed weapon (he had a license from the state of FL to do so).
Ans: No argument there. Though he did so as his self appointed community law enforcement.
Irrelevant
Yeah wrote:
<quoted text>3. The gun wasn't fired until AFTER Martin was bashing Zimmerman's head into a concrete sidewalk.(eye witness to the fact as well as physical injuries to the back of Zimmerman's head cooberate this)
Ans: This is what Zimmerman claimed. It's not a fact.
What part do you not understand about "eye witness"? It's not just Zimmerman's claim.
Yeah wrote:
<quoted text>4. Martin was the first to initiate the conversation between the two (M's girlfriend's testimony backs this)
Ans: Again, this is Zimmerman's claim. Not a fact.
Not his claim. It was from the statement from Martin's girlfriend.
Yeah wrote:
<quoted text>5. No physical injuries to Martin other than a single GSW. A broken nose, blackened eyes, and cuts to the back of Z's head all bolster Z's claim that he was attacked by Martin.
Ans: Zimmerman could have fallen. I've seen head wounds worse in a retail store.
He broke his own nose AND cut the back of his head multiple times by falling??? How many times did he fall? What a ludicrous statement.
Yeah wrote:
<quoted text>6. If you initiate an attack on someone, you are NOT a "victim".
Try again.
Ans: If Zimmerman stayed in his vehicle, everything would have been fine. Zimmerman initiated the chase after Martin ran AWAY from him. Looking from an objective position outside, one could say Martin was running from his assailant.
Try again....
Another bullshit statement. You can keep using "chase" all you want to try to bolster your position, but it isn't going to fly, especially when you have no proof. Zimmerman didn't assault Martin prior to him running away. How could he? He hadn't gotten out of his truck yet. Have you actually listened to the call with the dispatcher? If so, you need to listen to it again. When the dispatcher to Zimmerman "we don't need you to do that" (referring to following Martin) Zimmerman said "OK" and returned to his truck.(you can here the door chime from the vehicle at the end of their conversation)

Zimmerman broke no law by leaving his truck. He broke no law by trying to see where a suspicious person had ran off to. He broke no law by answering MARTIN'S question of "why are you following me?" with "what are you doing here?" With the evidence that has been presented to date, the first person to break any law was Martin when he broke Zimmerman's nose.

Did you pee your panties after that little rant? In case you missed it breakins had been happening in the community and the POLICE statement said "young black males". You want to avoid the truth but it hangs around your neck like a dead monkey.

Exactly right. People need to think for themselves instead of relying on spoon fed information from a single media source.
They may not be right 100% of the time. But, they will be right more than if they simply take a newscast at face value.
