Bush spent 1027 days of his presidency on vacation. About 3 years out of his 8. Obama has spent 97 in 5 years. Nice try, dumb tea bagger. Vacations. Hilarious. I know how you hate facts - they're never on your side.

Now watch this drive...

Why wouldn't the teabagger father let his 12-year old daughter smoke at the table?
It would be a bad influence on her kids.

The Republican Party is essentially dead and irrelevant. Even backing Romney to win was a piece of nonsense. Now in 2013 they have nobody who van beat Hillary in 2016 and 2020 but they will continue to control Congress until their support just dies of old age.

Think of all the good things the GOP has done for the American people during the last six years.
Less than zero support for the middle class? √
Sabotage our nations recovery? √
Admit that women are to be treated as chattel? √
Push the notion that the founding fathers wanted a "Christian Faith" based nation? √
Tax breaks for those with money enough for a thousand years of easy living? √
Suppress voters right. √
There's your answer to what a Romney administration would look like. More of the same that brought the USA down.

Cheney's Halliburton Made $39.5 Billion on Iraq WarBy Angelo Young, International Business Times

20 March 13



he accounting of the financial cost of the nearly decade-long Iraq War will go on for years, but a recent analysis has shed light on the companies that made money off the war by providing support services as the privatization of what were former U.S. military operations rose to unprecedented levels.

Private or publicly listed firms received at least $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money for government contracts for services that included providing private security, building infrastructure and feeding the troops.

Ten contractors received 52 percent of the funds, according to an analysis by the Financial Times that was published Tuesday.

The No. 1 recipient?

Houston-based energy-focused engineering and construction firm KBR, Inc.(NYSE:KBR), which was spun off from its parent, oilfield services provider Halliburton Co.(NYSE:HAL), in 2007.

The company was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks, as reported by Bloomberg.

Who were Nos. 2 and 3?

Agility Logistics (KSE:AGLTY) of Kuwait and the state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corp. Together, these firms garnered $13.5 billion of U.S. contracts.

As private enterprise entered the war zone at unprecedented levels, the amount of corruption ballooned, even if most contractors performed their duties as expected.

According to the bipartisan Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the level of corruption by defense contractors may be as high as $60 billion. Disciplined soldiers that would traditionally do many of the tasks are commissioned by private and publicly listed companies.

Bush Cronies Profit from War in Iraq While Our Soldiers Die Every Day

More disturbing news from Iraq: Now United Nations auditors are complaining the Bush administration is holding back information concerning more than $1 billion in reconstruction contracts awarded to several well-connected American firms without competitive bidding.

The complaints come from the International Advisory and Monitoring Board -- a bookkeeping creation of the UN Security Council that includes members from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The board was set up to make sure Iraq's oil revenue would be handled in proper fashion throughout the American occupation.

How the Bush Family Makes a Killing from George's Presidency
Halliburton scored almost $1.2 billion in revenue from contracts related to Iraq in the third quarter of 2006, leading one analyst to comment: "Iraq was better than expected... Overall, there is nothing really to question or be skeptical about. I think the results are very good."

Very good indeed. An estimated 655,000 dead Iraqis, over 3,000 dead coalition troops, billions stolen from Iraq's coffers, a country battered by civil war - but Halliburton turned a profit, so the results are very good.

Very good certainly for Vice President Dick Cheney, who resigned from Halliburton in 2000 with a $33.7 million retirement package (not bad for roughly four years of work). In a stunning conflict of interest, Cheney still holds 50,000 stock options in the company. Why pursue diplomacy when you can rake in a personal fortune from war?

Yet Cheney isn't the only one who has benefited from the Bush administration's destructive policies. The Bush family has done quite nicely too

To the ranks of those who will get a break from the rules of Obamacare you can add ... members of Congress and more than 10,000 of their staffers.
Bowing to complaints from the Capitol Hill crowd, the Obama administration on Wednesday announced that members and staffers will keep the generous subsidies they currently receive through the federal health insurance program. Under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, many of them would have had to pay much more as they shifted to buying insurance through one of the new exchanges being created.

FOX news spreading lies and the dumbass tea baggers will slurp up all that GOP nut sac baby gravy.....
Q: Is it true that there are bills in Congress that would exempt members and their staffs and families from buying into “Obamacare”?
A: No. Congress members and staffers will be required to buy insurance through the exchanges on Jan. 1.
FULL QUESTION
Is it true that there are bills in the House and Senate that will exempt members and their staff and families from buying into Obamacare?
FULL ANSWER
Several readers have asked us about Congress attempting to exempt itself from the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. A few said that a Facebook post claimed that President Barack Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Democrats in Congress were trying to “get themselves exempted from Obamacare,” in the words of one reader.
But there is no bill in Congress calling for an exemption from the health care law. In fact, members of Congress and their staffs face additional requirements that most Americans don’t have to meet.

Debt, foreclosures, spending and more. Our latest selection of statistical measures of what's happened since the president took office.
Posted on July 19, 2013

Summary
In our latest quarterly review of key statistical measures of Barack Obama’s presidency so far, we find:

The economy has now added twice as many jobs since Obama took office than it did in his predecessor’s entire eight years in office.
Stockholders have grown wealthier; the S&P 500 has gained 110 percent.
But fewer Americans own their own homes. The rate of home ownership has dropped by 2.3 percentage points.
However, fewer homeowners are now being forced out by foreclosures. Lenders initiated fewer foreclosure proceedings in June than at any time in the past seven-and-a-half years.
Consumer prices have risen a modest 9.9 percent since Obama first took office, but wages have barely kept pace. Real weekly earnings rose just 0.1 percent.
■The federal debt declined a bit recently due to the tax-season surge in payments to the Treasury. But the debt is still up nearly 90 percent, and on a path to double.
While states and cities laid off millions of their workers to make ends meet, the Obama administration continued to hire. The federal workforce is nearly 5 percent larger now, and has grown faster than the U.S. population.
Obama has now traveled to 38 countries, visiting some more than once. Bush visited 75.
The president is far short of meeting his goal of doubling U.S. exports. They have risen 31 percent since he took office, and only 2 percent in the most recent 12 months.
Domestic oil production continues to soar, up 46 percent. Oil imports have plunged by 38 percent. But the U.S. still depends on foreign sources for more than a third of what it consumes.
Wind and solar power have increased 176 percent. But those sources still make up just 3.8 percent of U.S. electric generation. Coal still accounts for the biggest share: nearly 39 percent.
