Dang, you almost made it through another long and tedious recital of excuses without blaming Bush. In fairness though, it's your only play. Had Obama done anything praiseworthy, after nearly <<FIVE YEARS>>, you'd be kicking that cat all over the place.
It's doubtful this country will ever fully recover, so profoundly has Obama divided the country. If we do, it'll be in spite of his policies, not because of them. When he's gone, it'll be like removing a malignant tumor, the immediate danger will be gone but the initial damage will cripple us forever.
To be fair, the dividing of the country really first began during Clinton's second term when Democrats rallied and defended his lying under oath to a Grand Jury after being caught with his pants down in the Oval Office without even one Democrat having any reservations whatsoever about doing so. It continued when Democrats became weasels during the Bush administration and when the media revealed themselves to be the liberal cheerleaders.

Then Obama came into office to strike the final blow of divide and conquer.

As soon as the country forgot that character matters or just stopped caring, it was easy pickens for the far left from then on.

However, I still have hope most Americans are still Americans and just temporarily hypnotized.

I have given this same advice to many people, especially to those in their 50's attempting to compete for jobs with younger people.
It's amazing how terrifying it seems to people; the thought of creating your own business. They're stuck in the world of a 9-5 job, or in a job that may not pay well but has healthcare benefits.
This is why we need single payer healthcare so that people are not forced into jobs just to get health insurance. Once that anxiety about healthcare is gone; it will free people to become more creative in their lives.
People in their 50s who take what limited savings they have to start a new business are usually making a poor financial choice.

People in their 50s who have valuable job skills can compete well in the job market.

So you are arguing for Obamacare. Moving towards everyone having insurance would make everyone payers into the health system.
Not having insurance & relying on Health Savings Accounts will only work for the small stuff. My fried had a heart attack at 42. Her emergency room & ICU bill was $89,000. Without any doctor bills yet.
As soon as she has enough strength its triple bypasss time.
We could have meaningful tort reform ass soon as Republicans quit insisting on caps.
Obamacare will pull the plug on bad risks like your friend.

No triple bypass for you.

Obama did not divide this country.
Your party packed up & left as far as helping us recover from the mess in place when Obama took office.
When will you right whiners quit blaming Obama for your party's failures?
We blame Obama for the failure of the economy and we blame our party for failing to stop Obama.

So you're actually admitting without thinking about what you're saying that Democrats were...what...on vacation prior to the economic crisis and not in control of Congress and they stood up and fought to rein in Fannie and Freddie?

Accountability doesn't apply to Democrats? Is that what you're actually saying?

Blast from the past:
At Daily Kos on this date in 2003Poppy Bush to Jr: slow down:
This is old news, but ignored the first time. It's attempting a comeback:
THE first President Bush has told his son that hopes of peace in the Middle East would be ruined if a war with Iraq were not backed by international unity.
Drawing on his own experiences before and after the 1991 Gulf War, Mr Bush Sr said that the brief flowering of hope for Arab-Israeli relations a decade ago would never have happened if America had ignored the will of the United Nations.
He also urged the President to resist his tendency to bear grudges, advising his son to bridge the rift between the United States, France and Germany.
It's clear Bush doesn't give a damn about the world or the American public, but is his own father now irrelevant?
DK
If only President Clinton hadn't signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1994 and every single democrat said Saddam was an eminent threat and had to be removed three years prior to 9/11...

...you might have an argument.

For someone who continually gets caught making mistakes - "typos" - you probably shouldn't keep setting yourself up for more embarrassment.

You can steal identities and you can steal locations; therefore, you can steal identities AND locations.

Wrong on every count, you can't be that fn stupid so there must be something else behind your daily lie spewing here.

Bush's deficits were chump change compared to this administration's.

When do you start asking why the economy hasn't made any significant recovery in four years?

If we were still stagnating under Carter's recession into Reagans's second term, I can guarantee you, liberals and conservatives alike would be asking that question. But conservatives wouldn't look so ridiculous still trying to blame Carter.

Bush is guilty, but Obama is even more guilty and has certainly divided this nation more than any other president ever has, along with the most debt...and future debt, thanks to ObamaSCARE, etc. You are the liar and idiot, besides being an ignorant fool.

As for illegals, that argument is old. either they pay taxes or do the jobs which no American wants to do. point being they work for a living so your problem with them is? they followed there dream to America just like your ancestors. Not to mention there's more white people on welfare then any other race including illegals so maybe y'all needs to stop having babies. Look in the mirror or are you scared you might not like what you see?
you seem to have the need to turn everything into a race isue, why is that?

My ancestors came here legaly.

Americans that would choose to live as a parasite over gaining work expereince in a job they don't like are lazy and should not be fed.

All people have the right to have children but they should also be responible to feed and care for them.

I don't care if the people are white yellow ,black or green. If they refuse to take responibility for their own needs ,let them starve.

Want to talk about looking in the mirror, take a look at your own..
