Why are you afraid to post his entire quote?
"We can admit that there’s some real, deep, fundamental problems with this president. But I think we’re throwing the dirt here too soon,” Carville said.“The deficit is dropping as a percentage of GDP faster than any time since World War II. He saved the auto industry. Health care costs are flattening better than any time in the last 20 years. Teenage pregnancy is at an all-time low.”

It is normal for teens to date.
The boys are never taught responsibility
from their parents. They do not need sex
education or birth control. They go to
school to get their education and wait
for marriage to have children.

<quoted text>credit defaults--can you say Clinton? Larry Summers? come on you certainly know that Hillary Clinton's friend, Brooksley Born, who worked for President Clinton blew the horn on the credit defaults (among other problems) and Clinton threw her to the curb.

Born's warnings were ignored and the GOP Congress passed a measure at Alan Greenspan's recommendatoin in 2000 which removed CTFC's jurisdiction over credit default swaps.

There' your villain, pal. Same 'ol GOP Congressmen giving Wall Street crooks free rein.

Sorry, little man.

But Obamacare is a tempest in a teapot.

Step back and see the total disaster your party is.

*Party of 9-11 (Tenet's warnings ignored.)

*Iraq War-by-Lies

*The Recession of 2008

Oh, you are a confused one aren't you?
On one hand you say: "And because it is broke, many people will die waiting in line because the hospitals cannot service them. Last year alone over 10 thousand people were waiting for biopsies that were still waiting this year."
And, on the other: "Thousands of Americans travel every year to Costa Rica for doctor care and dental care, it is about 1/4 of the cost--and they pay cash."
Geez Louise!
I know you can't read but let me type a little slower for you. There are two systems for Health care in Costa Rica, the private system that government has no control over and does not take the government health care period-- and the Socialist system of the government that would be the equivalent of O'bamacare--poorly managed and poorly run and has already run out of money. They are paying out more than they are taking in. Do you understand now? The only way to get health care service is to go to the private sector. Do yooooou undeeerstaaaand now?
Let me answer that: doubtful.

Born was gone by them. Bill Clinton was president. Brooksley Elizabeth Born was appointed head of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in 1994 by President Bill Clinton after Janet Reno edged her out for the post of attorney general. The CFTC is supposed to regulate the country's futures and options markets, and Ms. Born set about doing just that. She identified swaps--financial instruments valued for their complexity and freedom from regulatory scrutiny--as having the potential to do severe damage to our economy.

She proposed regulations to address the problem, but was thwarted by three powerful members of the country's economic establishment: Robert Rubin, Alan Greenspan, and Larry Summers. Thanks to them, Congress passed legislation forbidding the CFTC from writing regulations on the derivatives market and Brooksley Born quit in 1999.

Rubin worked again for O'bama, Summers worked for O'bama and let's not forget Tim Geithner was in there too. Alan Greenspan admitted he was wrong.

Ok, how do you link the BP oil spill to a political party?

Make sure you use some good links on this one...

These constant flyweight attacks on Obama have the obvious goal of drawing attention away from the Bush disaster.
As in:
1. Two unfinished wars, one of which he lied us into.
2. A growing recession.
3. A bank crisis created by bad bank loans and credit default swaps, which the Congressional GOP Majority failed to rein in.
Now the Country is paying for it, and the GOP carnival barkers are ranting desperately in an effort to distract from Bush's part.
Which is why I enjoy their comedic antics so much!
