That Exxon Mobile CEO sounds a lot like the people in Texas who paid the bills of illegal aliens for decades, and now cry because nobody speaks English in their town anymore.

Yes, yes. We all know that the GOP are a conniving lot. Willing to say or do anything to get elected. Now if only you guys could understand that most of us don't look at Obama as the second coming. He's a mediocre president. It's the same conniving that you describe with the GOP that made us willing to vote for anyone over anything the same people who inflicted us with GW Bush had to offer. Obama is ten times better than Bush. The fact is, I would have voted for a rock that kinda looks like it had a face, over Mitt Romney. It's that same catering to the religious right that ruined the GOP, and it's those same religious fascist Tea Baggers that the GOP is trying to flick off themselves like a booger on their finger. The bottom line is you follow much of the religious right's views on abortion and gays that has nothing to do with fiscal responsibility. You wonder why people think of you and yours as being racist, when it is due to the numerous, propaganda based "scandals" that you are so willing to believe, even after they have been proven to be lies. Did you know that there were 18 Benghazi like attacks on Bush's watch? Not a peep about those. Do you realize that Bush's needless war cost us around 800 billion dollars? Not a peep about that. Some how, you guys have been convinced that a purely corporate agenda, which is why you have your views on the climate, and on labor in this country, is somehow better than the people we elect to run this country. It's isn't.
Oh, it's a lot more than 800 billion:
U.S. Costs of Iraq War through FY2013

DOD War Appropriations----769.9billion
State/USAID----52.38billion
Increase in DOD Base Spending----401.27billion
VA Medical(attributing 65% of total costs to Iraq War)----15.31billion
VA Disability( " " " " " " " " " )----21.84billion
SS Disability( " " " " " " " )----2.91billion
Growth in other VA Spending( " " " " " )----46.48billion
Homeland Security( " " 54% of increase to Iraq)----245.81billion
Interest Cost(54% of cumulative costs, not counting interest cost in 2002 and 2003)----138.8billion
SUBTOTAL COST OF IRAQ WAR and WAR-RELATED EXPENSES through 2013----1,694.70billion

FUTURE IRAQ RELATED COSTS FY2014-2053
Future Obligated Spending for Veterans Care and Disability, Net Present Value
(attributing 65% of total costs to Iraq War----490.59billion
TOTAL,not including interest on borrowing--------2,186billion

Because the Iraq War appropriations for FY2003-FY2013 were not funded with new taxes, but by borrowing, it is important to keep in mind the interest costs already paid, and future interest costs. Iraq War appropriations for DOD and State were 54% of the interest costs. If one were to include Iraq's share of cumulative interest through 2053, those costs could be more than $3.9trillion.

Thanks, my friend. One has to wonder why none of that bothers the right wingers, yet they are soooo concerned about our nation's debt. We all know that war was pointless.

It was different then because old, wealthy, white men were in power. Good conservatives NEVER hold themselves to the same standards as the "others".
Kinda like how they CLAIM to be so disgusted with the "moocher class", but let their parents pay their bills well into adulthood...

It wasn't pointless until Obama took over. He's given Iraq to his pals, al-qaeda. And he's in the process of giving Afghanistan back to the Taliban.

One has to wonder why Obama's $7 T debt increase, over the span of 5 short years, doesn't bother left-wingers, but Bush's $5 T increase in 8 years made them set their hair on fire daily .. and they're still bitching about it. I guess if you didn't keep trying to put the focus back on Bush, you'd have to take a good, hard look at what you elected. Obama isn't a mediocre president, he's a national disaster.

FYI, dumbass: There's no comparison between parents who are willingly helping their children, and the govt forcefully taking money away from the families of hard-working Americans and giving it to complete strangers who use it to buy drugs and iPhones.

Shouldn't you be trying to find a way to force your religion into public schools, comparing gay marriage to bestiality, or b itching about fake birth certificates and imaginary scandals. You know, important conservative issues...

You are crazy. Nothing short of ill informed, willfully ignorant and inbred. Only Tea Bagging loon thinks Obama is working with Al Qaeda. Only an idiot couldn't realize that over the years, it has and will continue to take more and more money to operate our government. This will happen no matter who we elect. Now go ahead and tell us all what we accomplished in Iraq under GW. Ask Bin Laden how much Obama is pals with Al Qaeda. Then ask yourself, how much difference is there between fundamentalist Muslims and fundamentalist Christians. I'm thinking a turban is about the only difference..

It's funny to listen to folks like you, who have had everything handed to you in life, and who profess to be walking in the footsteps of Jesus, crying about poor people taking all your stuff. Hard working Americans are the ones who voted twice for Obama. The rest are just tax dodging , trust fund baby leeches on the necks of the working middle class.

More soldiers have died under Obama's "leadership" than when Bush was in charge. It sure doesn't look like he's on our side.
Only an idiot couldn't realize that over the years, it has and will continue to take more and more money to operate our government.
According to your reasoning, the govt should just continue to get bigger and bigger, and cost more and more. Where do you think the money is going to come from? Do you run your own finances the way Obama runs the nation's?

Right. And pointing out the obvious and glaring similarities between unhinged serial killer behavior and "conservative values" is "a good smear campaign". Or like how letting mommy and daddy pay for your entire livelihood ISN'T the same as being a moocher...

It's really not a matter of my reasoning. It's a matter of fact that as our nation's population has grown, so has our government and so does the cost. Don't worry. If a Republican ever gets elected again in your lifetime, all your cares about debt will magically disappear. Your statement about more soldiers dying on Obama's watch, which is now a common lie being told if you Google it, skips over the numbers in Iraq for some mysterious reason. Strange that your camp was waving their little flags and quoting their Bibles when Bush sent our troops off to needlessly die.

Tell us all about "unhinged serial killer behavior" and "conservative values", little Jeffy. You can't defend your loser president, so all you have are your stupid smear campaigns. You don't know anything about me other than what I've told you, and that's practically nothing. You fabricate everything else. That must be what you do for entertainment in between f***ing corpses and eating them for dinner.
