Did the Rinos screw up with Bush, you bet, but recall, Bush had two years of the rats setting up the spending, he went along with it, should have Vetoed all of it each time.
Did Bush add 5 trillion in 8 years, YES, has bambie added 5 trillon in 3.5 years yes, whats worse, but what the heck, our grandkid's will pay for it all.
The Senate voted on both the House Budget and the Presidents Budget. The Republicans in the House voted 40 - 57 to continue debating the Presidents budget and not bring it to a pass-fail vote.

And you want to call me a liar? Look in the mirror.

Lets keep in mind that not one dime was spent this year, not one dime was added to the debt this year and the debt ceiling would not have been increased this year without the approval of the REPUBLICAN HOUSE.

And all you can do is whine and cry about Democrats.

And you have the nerve to imply you are or were a member of the military.

Nah, its because the Republicans let bush get away with all kind of stuff and now they pretend to have found God.
Just like spending. You think Obama has spent too much? You think the deficit has gotten to large? You think the national debt is too high?
Consider that not one dime was spent this year without the approval of the Republican House.
Consider that the Ryan budget plan does not even balance the budget for 20+ years. How much more does that add to the debt?
Consider that given $2 Tril in Sequestered spending cuts they included a $2 Trillion tax cut in their budget.
Consider that at this very moment they are thinking of ways to undo the sequested spending cuts that they don't like, but they would still stick us with the cost of the tax cuts.
Now if spending and debt is a problem, I blame both (if it is a problem). Consider that you will continue to blame Democrats even if Romney is elected.
What does this Stuff have to do with Holder assigning a Special Prosecutor…Nothing!! The purpose of assigning a Special Prosecutor is to establish if they were any Laws/Crimes committed!! Again will Holder resist?

Hold your breath till you can answer the question.
Tell you what, OKB - as soon as Holder and Obobo stop stonewalling the Congress with their Exec Privilege claim, and release ALL the subpoenaed documents and e-mails in which the evidence of wrong-doing is being hidden, we'll answer your question.

I'm sure you're be the first to agree with this simple demand that Obobo do nothing more than live up to his promise to run "the most open and transparent administration in history" by releasing EVERYTHING on F&F the Committee considers relevant and necessary to its F&F investigation.

Right?

OKB are you talking about Obama’s 2013 budget if so you’re wrong!!
The entire Senate also unanimously rejected President Obama’s 2013 budget, voting 99-0 against it, following a 414-0 vote against it in the House earlier this year!!

Here is a chance for Mr.Job creator to save some jobs:

Romney "Dont-Care"

More than 170 workers in Freeport, Illinois, are about to lose their jobs, outsourced to China by the majority shareholder in their company: Bain Capital. Sensata is the name of the firm, and the soon to be former employees sent a direct appeal to Mitt Romney to get his former colleagues to keep their plant in the United States, according to the Associated Press:

Since early 2011, Cheryl Randecker and her co-workers have known their jobs making electronic sensors at a factory in Freeport, Ill., would be lost to China. Some even were asked to train their replacements, who were flown in from overseas.

But with the presidential election campaign in full swing, workers at the Sensata Technologies plant came up with a novel idea, a Hail Mary pass to save their jobs: Ask Mitt Romney for help.

Sensata is owned by Bain Capital, the private equity investment firm that the Republican presidential candidate once led and that has been the subject of a campaign debate about jobs and outsourcing. Romney had long since left his leadership position at Bain when Sensata bought the plant in 2010, but the Freeport City Council recently passed a unanimous 8-0 resolution calling on him to come visit and help keep the jobs in town. The workers have written him directly.

Of course, Romney hasn't responded, and he would likely use his current excuse for the outsourcing that occurred when he was CEO, president, and sole stockholder from 1999-2002: he wasn't around when it happened. Of course, that is belied, as BuzzFlash has pointed out, by Bain's investment, as early as the beginning of the 1990s, in firms that facilitate outsourcing.

The governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn (D), is visiting Freeport today to show his solidarity with the Sensata workers about to lose their jobs.

There is little hope for the workers and Romney -- who is campaigning as a job creator -- will not likely ever respond to their plea. But the real question to Romney is what would he do if he were still the owner and CEO of Bain Capital? Would he take less profit and save the US jobs in Freeport, or would he make the decision that would increase his own quarter billion dollar in assets?

Hold your breath till you can answer the question.
If you are wiling to look the other way as Obama & Holder are clearly (and shamelessly) covering something up, then you are putting partisan loyalties above common sense.

The sad thing is, you can't really blame Obama... a large percentage of Americans have made it obvious that Obama can do ANYTHING, no matter how dishonest or destructive... and they will still blindly approve. Hand him unlimited power, why wouldn't he take it?

Don't get me wrong, the right is no better. But they aren't the people pretending that we don't have a terrible, hapless President anymore... now it's the left.

When do we as AMERICANS wake up?

Start doing research, America. Look at what is happening honestly, not through a partisan lens. You'll quickly realize that both parties are destroying this nation.

We need to wake up and EVOLVE.

it is unbelievable how corrupt the mainstream media/left wing propaganda machines have become.

they spend more time making up nonexistent mistakes by Romney then concentrating on giving a fair and balanced view on the news.

http://news.investors.com/article/620618/2012...

and while our economy continues to sputter with almost nonexistent growth, they concentrate more on matching up Republican candidates with songs like cnn smearing Palin with the song stupid girls, then telling the truth on the economy.

http://news.investors.com/article/620617/2012...

when you have the media who are supposed to be fair and impartial, instead carrying the water for Obama and the democratic party again and again, we end up with an uninformed public, voting in the same policies that devastated our economy during the jimmy carter era, and we end up with a repeat of the carter economy and the same failed liberal policies.

and we make this happen every-time we support advertisers on these corrupt media propaganda outlets, and every-time we spend our time watching their garbage.

now harry Reid continues to attack Romney over taxes,

well when are we going to know how much money reid's family makes off the people with half his family working as lobbyists, pocketing salaries at our expense.

but why are we not surprised that the democrats and the corrupt mainstream media want to talk about anything but the record of Obama, the worst president in American history, and one of the worst leaders in the history of the planet.

it is Obama and Reid who paid off their supporters with almost a trillion dollars in kickbacks disguised as stimulus.

and it is Obama and Reid who rammed through one of the most despised pieces of legislation in generations, obamacare,

and lets not forget the green jobs scams like solyndra which were simple payoffs and kickbacks.

and of course lets not forget the million dollar datenights, the expensive taxpayer subsidized vacation, the endless parties and concerts, while the people all languished with continued high unemployment and skyrocketing debt.

Obama and the democrats had total control of both the whitehouse and the congress, and all they created is disaster.

this november can not come fast enough, and this will be the most important election of our lifetimes.

Overspending on completely unpopular programs such as Obamacare and make-work programs leads to contempt for the Federal Government, which leads to tax avoidance by those with taxable income. Look at Greece, if you want to see the future of this strategy.

“You call that forward? That’s forward over a cliff,” Romney said.“That’s forward on the way to Greece. I don’t want that.”

The big question here is why is Obama not running his campaign around the stimulus he passed which was going to keep unemployment below 8%:

"First, Obama's economic advisers promised the stimulus would keep the unemployment rate below 8 percent.

Three years and $825 billion later, the results are clear. Instead of producing an economic recovery, the stimulus produced only broken promises and massive debt. The stimulus failed—and by the president's own standards at that."

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2012/0...

I guess that is why Obama is all about attacks and negative campaigning, and why the democrats are concentrating more on Romney's tax returns then on their own performance.

The next big question is why Obama is not running his campaign on green jobs.

"In 2008, Obama Promised Five Million Green Jobs"



“Two years ago President Obama was here to tout this building and this business as a symbol of the success of his stimulus,” said Romney, stepping off a bus and onto the public sidewalk in front of the Solyndra buildings just outside Silicon Valley.“Well you can see that it’s a symbol of something very different today.”

“It’s a symbol not of success but of failure,” he said.“It’s also a symbol of a serious conflict of interest. An independent inspector general looked at this investment and concluded that the administration had steered money to friends and family – to campaign contributors. This building, this half a billion dollar taxpayer investment, represents a serious conflict of interest on the part of the president and his team.”

not only is Obama driving us over the cliff, we have the corrupt mainstream media pushing the car the last few feet over the cliff.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2...

they are doing anything they can to help Obama and the democrats, all at the expense of our country, our children, and our children's future.

and frankly it is our fault, we are the ones who continue to watch these corrupt media channels, we are the ones who continue to buy and use products advertised on these channels.

our children's future is at stake and we need to deliver a message to these corrupt propaganda machines that we are not going to take it.

the issue is not Rooney's tax returns, or media made up mistakes that Romney did not make,

the issue is the economy, the debt, the unemployment rate, and the hated obamacare.

that is what this election is all about, and that is what is at stake, and until the corrupt mainstream media stops their propaganda and starts to cover this fairly, i will not be watching their channels, and i will not be supporting their advertisers.
