Thanks Barack!
Might I add a few errors to your post........unemployment is at 6.7%...( look it up )....Might I add that unemployment rate under Reagan in 1982 was over 10.80 %( look it up ).... The stock market doesn't equate the national debt at all. Debt will continue to rise double-triple fold in the next 20 years, I don't care who's in the Whitehouse.
While Bush destroyed the housing market, the banking system, and Wall Street stealing our money., not counting the 2 wars he put on the Amerikan Express charge card. We've come a long way from a President that ruined the country and almost wiped out every middle class workers 401K and many more investment plans that they so needed for their retirement years. If Romney would have been elected we'd have millions of people homeless and standing in soup lines.
Thanks Barack!

The first to go was the call to make sacrifices for your country. After the 9/11 attacks, the entire country was united behind the President. But instead of asking Americans to make sacrifices for their country in a time of war, Bush told us to go on vacation.

Bush’s greatest mistake was gutting the military by illegally invading Iraq, instead of crushing Al Qaeda and killing or capturing Osama bin Laden. The war in Iraq stretched the military to the breaking point, shattered the budget, and divided the country in a time of war.

No matter what you think of Bill Clinton (draft dodger, philanderer, cheat), you have to admit that he is highly intelligent and that he did a great job with the economy. George W. Bush, on the other hand, is a man of average intelligence who presided over a historic collapse of the American economy.

For those of us who staunchly believe in conservative principles such as a balance budget, a strong military, and service to our country, the question is simple.

Why would you ever vote for a Republican again? The Republicans are the ones who got us into this mess. Why would you trust them to get us out of it?

Hey Hanity...The Fed has been pumping 800 million into the market every month for years. QE 1 QE 2 etc. Now Mr. Economist, who do you think is paying for it??? Putin??? This POS president has not turned off the printing press since he took office. For every job he created, 75 people ended up on food stamps. And since you like history, how about this:
On July 3, 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama said this:
The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents —#43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back —$30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.
Again, now it's 17.5 trillion. But since The Magic Negro can do no wrong, it's not a problem. It's a shame, this really was a great country....once.

Obama aunt who stayed in U.S. illegally dies at 61
April 8, 201
President Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61.
Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case.
Onyango, a half-sister of Obama’s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in the country illegally, living in Boston public housing.

You're confused. Bush increased the deficit more than any president in history. Obama has reduced it more than any president in 60 years. Also, he created 8.8 million jobs. If you don't want people on welfare, why did you destroy the economy? If you don't like government entitlements, why not raise minimum wage? Why should the government have to subsidize Wal Mart's payroll?

White House working on tending its own house on pay disparity
April 8, 2014

On a day when President Barack Obama trumpeted support of strengthening equal pay laws, a question about pay disparity between male and female staffers within the White House seemed to catch the administration a bit off guard.

An analysis by the conservative American Enterprise Institute found that women staffers made about 88 cents on the dollar, compared with male staffers.

Female federal workers in the early years of the Obama administration had a median salary of nearly 93% of what their male colleagues earn, according to 2011 figures from the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, an agency that works to protect the rights of federal employees.

And while that figure for female federal worker earnings was up from just over 83 percent in 1991, it doesn't exactly match the type of pay parity the White House was touting.

"What I can tell you is that we have, as an institution here, have aggressively addressed this challenge, and obviously, though, at the 88 cents that you cite, that is not a hundred, but it is better than the national average," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Monday.

Hey Bacon Hater..I'm confused??? I guess you don't know the difference between "deficit" and "national debt".(Show me where I said "deficit") This is something an Economics major learns in the first year. For someone who fancies themselves as an authority, you're not that bright...But since you know so much about spending, why not tell us why Obama spent 1.5 billion of US tax dollars to support The Muslim Brotherhood when they overthrew the established Egyptian government. The last friend we had in the Middle East is now controlled by an organization sworn to spread Sharia Law and take down the US all with his support and our money. I'll be waiting.....

Haha. Ok, genius, you tell me how you reduce debt without eliminating the deficit first. Although, I suppose on Planet Teabag it is possible.

Wow.

And you should check your support of the Muslim Brotherhood "facts" again, I see you get your news from the control panel of the Starship Teabag too.

And please, as long as the "party of fiscal responsibility" is blowing $25 billion on failures to repeal Obamacare and on fake scandals that turn up NOTHING, keep your idiotic economic advice to yourself. It's your party that emptied our treasury to invade the wrong country and it was you destroyed the greatest economy in the history of man. Not mine.

In light of Obama’s ongoing battle with Republicans over taxes and spending, we thought this would be an interesting claim to examine. In this factcheck, we look at whether we are really seeing one of the most rapid declines in the deficit in many decades.

As a reminder, the deficit is a snapshot of one year’s fiscal outlook. It’s the shortfall between what the government spends and what the government collects in taxes and other revenues.

The White House press office told us that the proof is in the numbers. They tracked the deficit as a percent of the entire economy, measured as the Gross Domestic Product.

In 2009, the first year of Obama’s presidency, after tax cuts and new spending, the deficit was 10.1 percent of GDP. In 2012, the deficit declined to 7 percent of GDP. So that’s a decline of 3.1 percentage points.

You have to go back 63 years to the period between 1946 and 1949 to find a bigger four-year drop than what the country saw between 2009 and 2012. Right after World War II ended, the U.S. deficit stood at 7.2 percent of GDP. By 1949, America had a surplus of 0.2 percent. So that’s a decline of 7.4 percentage points.

We downloaded data from the Office of Management and Budget that shows the deficit as a percent of GDP all the way back to 1930. When we ran the numbers, we found, as Obama said, you need to go back to 1946 to find a larger change.
