Doing the math on Obama's deficits
By Ezra Klein, Published: January 31, 2012
When Obama took office, the national debt was about $10.5 trillion.
So- even your OWN sources prove you are a m/f C/S liar, Vance.

You told us Obama doubled the deficit.

Let's put aside the FACT that Bush CAUSED most of the debt.

Let's do the math... TWO times (that's the same as double)$10.5 equals $21 trillion.

What's the debt?

" Bush set a 200-year veto record".
Which means in the 200 years since he was president no one has vetoed a smaller amount of legislation.
Wiki seems to disagree with you:

Because bringing Americans jobs just cuts into corporate profits.
Never can have too much of that.
Profits before people and America.
It's the teabagger way.
As factcheck pointed out, changing the tax code would make little if any difference when it comes to bringing jobs back to the US.

You have a company overseas. Because you are overseas, your company nets 10 million dollars per year. If you decided to move your operations back to the US with all our regulations, Obama Care, taxes and so on, you would only net 7 million dollars per year.

So let's say this legislation passed, and if you move your operations back to the US, your 20% tax credit comes to two million dollars. Would that make you move your operations here to the US?

Same holds true if you were in the US and were forced to move out because of foreign competition. Like what happened to so many manufacturers here, you have two choices: move overseas or go out of business. Would the elimination of a tax deduction stop you from moving overseas and opt to close your doors instead.

This is what's called a "feel good" bill and would do nothing for US jobs. That's why the Republicans in the Senate didn't go for it.

And obummer IS MOST CERTAINLY going to double the deficit. He is directly responsible for the highest debt increase EVER in American history.

The DEMONRATS have HISTORICALLY caused most of the debt. And that is a FACT that is beyond ALL dispute.

And AGAIN you are LYING. "North American Parts", you drooling troll. Which means parts made in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

"4. Sedan: Toyota Camry

"America’s best-selling midsize sedan is also one of the most North American-made sedans, as well. Toyota (NYSE:TM) gets 75 percent of its parts from America or Canada (another 20 percent are from Japan), while the final assembly is done in the U.S., with an American engine and a Japanese transmission."

According to the AP, jobs are coming back to the US, but not because anything DumBama has done nor anything with unproductive tax cuts. Jobs are coming back because wages overseas increased by 20% or more. American wages on the other hand are lower than before if not the same.
When figuring in shipping costs and all that, it makes sense for manufacturers to move back to the US. After all, we finally tamed our unions that drove those jobs away in the first place, and now the only other obstacle is Obama Care.

Yes it is.

Teabaggers want to go back to the status quo of insurance companies dropping your coverage when you put in claim after paying a decade worth of premiums.

NOT covering what your in the hospital for but the grand prize is you don't find out until a month AFTER you've been out of the hospital.

A pre existing condition where you can't even get coverage

Yes, good times.

"Tamed the unions"?

Of course, having your employers, on the employment application include instructions on how to file for welfare.

Yes, teabagger "good" times

I'll call you out, Aunt Jemima. Why did several prominent DEMOCRATIC congressional politicians call for military action in Iraq over those very same WMDs well BEFORE George Bush even took office. And, if they knew there were no WMDs in Iraq, why did the majority of the very same DEMOCRATS go along with Bush's plan to invade Iraq. Answer those questions, if your tiny, miniscule little mind even has a clue, which I seriously doubt.

North America.

PS: Mexican parts are not included in the "North American" definition, only parts made in US and Canada.

So the percentage goes up.

And the percentage of American made parts in your 1980 Datsun is zero.

Sometimes you are so stupid there is no explanation for your gross stupidity except that you are just too stupid to understand that you are stupid.

Now I just said that cars manufactured in the USA typically have 75 North American percent parts.

And you "prove" me wrong with showing everyone an example of a car made in the US that is manufactured using 75 percent parts made in the USA and Canada.

The president of the United States, bigot: is the president of the United States.

He is kind of the boss, bigot.

He wants to start a war with someone, bigot, he goes to Congress and gives him the facts he has to support his case.

Thing is, bigot, if he lies, how people vote in Congress has to be seen in the context that the is a m/f c/s liar.

NO matter who is the POTUS or what party he belongs to.

Bush lied.

You really do have all the intelligence of a cabbage (and, yes, I do realize that does a tremendous disservice to cabbages everywhere). George Bush added six trillion dollars to the national debt from the time he took office until the time he left. Barrack Obama added the same to the national debt DURING HIS FIRST TERM. By the time he leaves office, the national debt will have doubled or very close to it from the time he first took office until the time he leaves. He did take over a totally screwed up economy when he became President but, since then, he's done nothing to improve it and has, in point of fact, made it worse. Go crawl back into your sand box, Aunt Jemima.

Nice deflection, dimwit. I asked a very simple question and you couldn't answer it. The DEMOCRATS in congress were calling for military action in Iraq due to WMDs BEFORE BUSH BECAME PRESIDENT. That's fact, moron, deal with it.

Calling me a bigot is laughable and a complete lie. If being anti incompetence is being bigoted, then I goes I am. If being anti liars and clueless idiots is being bigoted, I guess I am. But I am bigoted against people because of who the are and, as someone once said, because of what's in their hearts. I don't give a rat's azz what ethnicity a person is nor what color they are nor what their religion is nor what their sexual orientation is, etc. What I do care about is how they treat others and, if their in a position of power, whether or not they work to improve the lives of the citizens of this country over anyone else. Go back to your vibrator, child.
