Distraction,
diversion, and
avoidance.

The Right Wing Wacko credo.

Those pesky facts:

Right Wing Wacko Ronnie Ray-Gun exploded deficits and tripled the national debt.

Can't be argued - just "is".

Bush and the Gang took a budget surplus and created a $1.4 Trillion Dollar annual deficit and more than doubled the National Debt.

Can't be argued - just "is".

Every Republican President in modern history has left office leaving larger debt and bigger deficits than he inherited.

Can't be argued - just "is".

One time,
after I voted for Ronnie Ray-Gun,
at a private political fundraiser for Sen. Percy R-Illinois,
($2,000 a plate paid for by the company I worked for),
why was Reagan exploding the national debt and why didn't Republicans demand a balanced budget ?

Percy's response was to shrug his shoulders and move on to the next question.

My company never sent me to another private fund raiser.

Right Wing Wacko Hypocrisy is nothing new.

Cutting and pasting facts and statistics is "bad". Facts have a well-known liberal bias.

Besides facts and documentation are "boring", and require internalization and thoughtful consideration.

Cutting and pasting Right Wing Wacko Rants is "good". Irrational, illogical, and nonsensical ramblings have a well-known Right Wing bias.

Best of all such ramblings don't require intellectual discrimination - making them perfect fodder for the intellectually lazy or challenged.

We're still waiting for a list of your leader's accomplishments. casualty.
Don't you think?
Let's see- in addition to cutting Bush's annual budget deficit of 1.4 Trillion Dollars in half, he

1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession.

4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012.

6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs.

8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

9. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions.

10. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans.

11. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.

12. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.

13. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.

I heard Republicans cut the budgets for embassy and State Department security and that some Americans were killed when crazies in some hellhole thousands of miles from America did what crazies do.
How's that 09/11 going for the Right Wing Wackos ?
Did Bush and the Gang prevent it ?
Nobody hijacked a bunch if planes and flew them into the WTC and the Pentagon did they ?
And if they did the Right Wing Wackos first job wasn't to provide fighter escorts for the bin Laden family to get them safely from the country to avoid American justice, did they ?
And for sure, within days, Bush and the Gand captured of killed Osama bin Laden - the family who wrote checks to Bush and the Gang for business and personal matters ?
Whew - for a minute there it appeared that 1000X more Americans were killed under Right Wing Wacko Rule than under Obama - and the Right Wing Wackos failed to get the bad guy.
Oh wait ....
I am not even bothering to respond to your first point, whether or not the budgets were cut has NOTHING to do with the facts that the annex was told not to go support the consulate, they went anyway.
WHY did the administration not convene its top counterterrorism resource - the Counterterrorism Support Group? These are the experts on what assets are available in this kind of situation . They would have best known who could get there the fastest.
WHY was a hostage rescue team reportedly told to prepare to assist and then told to stand down?
Planes from NAS Sigonello or Aviana Base could have been there in two hours, WHY were no planes sent? Doherty and Woods were still alive six hours into the attack, they died in the last hour and a half.
And it is reported that the reason their position was targeted for the mortar assault that killed them is because one of them had "painted" that artillery site to guide air support in, which simultaneously exposed THEIR position. Both were Navy Seal veterans, do you think they would have done that unless they had reason to believe that support was coming?

It must have been tough for Hilary, to leave her post, shedding tears about Bengahzi. What a shame, those tears were more for her legacy being tainted than anything else. She was crying because it will haunt her come campaign time. Remember that 3:00 a.m phone call campaign ad? She asked, would you rather have Obama or me taking that call. That answer would be, NEITHER!! She & Obama both failed! What a way to go out, shameful & emabarassing.

Now on to 9-11, if the Clinton administration hadn't been so afraid law enforcement agencies might actually - gasp - SHARE information and thus but a wall up to prevent it, the CIA and the FBI might have put all their disparate info together - like Middle Eastern students over- staying visas and ME men learning how to fly planes, but having no interest in learning how to LAND them, and little tidbits like that - MAYBE 9-11 might have been prevented - but we'll never know. And the Clinton admin made sure to cover their tails by making sure Jamie Gerelick, the very woman who imposed that wall, was a member of the 9-11 Commission. There's a good way to make sure nothing "embarrassing" comes out.

Here we go again, bin Laden family members flown out if US - already covered this once- it's a non-starter and you need to get your head out of the conspiracy websites - they'll fry your brain ----oops.

You really need to see someone about your projection issues.

psychological projection- the act of attributing one's own attitudes, desires, feelings or suppositions onto others, often as a naive or unconscious defense against guilt or anxiety.
- a defense mechanism wherein one rejects his own unacceptable attributes by attributing them to others

Its painfully obvious that you watch way to much tv. And that your main source is FNC, they are the ONLY ones still talking about the thing you think are is so important. Ever wonder why the Dems didn't try and charge Bush with the deaths at the World Trade Center, they still have common sense. Not only did we ALL watch that on TV, Most of us also knew some things are just going to happen no matter what is in place to stop them and continuing to play the blame game is all politics. Why don't you try to do something productive with your time.

AMEN, Aggie.

They blame Bush, they ignore the fact being, 9-11 was just 8 months into Bush's first term. The date 9-11 wasn't chosen by the terrorists because of our emergency system number. It was chosen because it was the date a fellow terrorist who crashed & died on that exact date, while taking flying lessons in our country, preparing to be part of the attacks. The date was chosen for him, in memory of him.
So, that means they ALL entered the country, trained, lived & planned on Clinton's watch.....and to think intelligence became so relaxed as not to pick up on something, not even a hint, is inexcusable.

No president has been a perfect president but it amazes me that the left defends Obama with what Bush may or may not have done. LOL What Obama does is not about Bush. The left need to defend the Obama issues/ideology and leave Bush out of it. Bush doesn't have a thing to do with the happenings in America today. Only time will tell but I believe Bush will end up in History in a much better position than Obama who may actually be the president that brings America completely to her knees. No matter all her (America) problems she was still the best nation in the world. No one can deny America's world position has deteriorated since Obama was elected. And more Americans support the socialist view than ever before. The sad part about that is history proves socialism doesn't work in the long run. I love my country but I fear she will never go back to what we all grew up knowing. Very Sad to me.

Your exactly right, it just doesn't matter. Obama will go down as one of the absolute worst US presidents ever, Nobel prize and all.

I just imagine his library will resemble a mosque with those arches he so loves, facing East. Visitors will remove their shoes and cover their heads before they enter. Once entering, those beautiful sounds of Arabic music will be piped through every room, good grief......They'd have to pay me to visit. My guess, it will be built in Hawaii or Chicago. Been there, done that. No, thank you.:)

That damn Congressional Budget Office that established Bush's creation of a $1.4 Trillion Dollar annual deficit,(after inheriting a budget surplus), that's all lies.
(Why, if it included the unfunded wars Bush started and left for our children to pay- it would exceed a $2.0 Trillion Dollar a year deficit.)
And the CBO numbers for the current deficit that demonstrate Obama has cut the Bush deficits in half - more lies dammit !
Ah Right Wing Wackos - how difficult it is on their psyche to have to ignore plain, unvarnished facts.
No wonder they are so obsessed with gay sex and guns - they need something to distract them from the obvious lunacy of their beliefs.
As Colbert said so eloquently - to Right Wing Wackos, facts have a well-known liberal bias.
I read your first couple of sentences and your last one. Hilarious. Want to discuss Obama's budget? Wait.....he hasn't had a budget the entire time he has been in office! WHAT?
You Looney Left Lunatics get your news from Colbert. Figures.
