3. The point is that you &your ilk said NOTHING while Bush was doubling the debt. The debt run up under Obama is primarily due to continuing spending in place before Obama took office, added spending due to the recession & reduced revenues due to the bad economy due to the recession. Please list the spending Obama added that increased the debt?
4. Wow, the bigoted f*ck now thinks he is a tough guy. Look, f*ckhead, you can take your racism & bigotry & shove them up your fat ass. Ethnic groups banding together to promote their general well being is not racist. Those like you who want to keep these groups down, are racist f*cks.
I really find myself cringing and shaking my head at this cretin who believes he's U.S. Senate material. Scary to think there are actually other people out there who share his extreme "white nationalist" views. Luckily, we keep a watch list of people like him.

The New American Economy: The Failure of Reaganomics and a New Way Forward

As a domestic policy advisor to Ronald Reagan, Bruce Bartlett was one of the originators of Reaganomics, the supply-side economic theory that conservatives have clung to for decades. In The New American Economy, Bartlett goes back to the economic roots that made Impostor a bestseller and abandons the conservative dogma in favor of a policy strongly based on what’s worked in the past. Marshalling compelling history and economics, he explains how economic theories that may be perfectly valid at one moment in time under one set of circumstances tend to lose validity over time because they are misapplied under different circumstances. Bartlett makes a compelling, historically-based case for large tax increases, once anathema to him and his economic allies. In The New American Economy, Bartlett seeks to clarify a compelling and way forward for the American economy.

He's another anti government mental case who would advocate for laws against integration.The same ant government types who want the government to control gay marriage, abortion, marijuana...
If he runs based on 'racial diversity' based on protecting whites, we'll know who he is.

But I suspect we never will!

<quoted text> From Bush's speech September 20, 2001. Read it and weep libtard.
(APPLAUSE)
Americans are asking, "How will we fight and win this war?''
We will direct every resource at our command--every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war--to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network.
Now, this war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.
Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes visible on TV and covert operations secret even in success.
We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place until there is no refuge or no rest.
And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.
(APPLAUSE)
From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime. Our nation has been put on notice, we're not immune from attack. We will take defensive measures against terrorism to protect Americans.
That's some real funny chit Flacko.

Romney got it right: America is diminished and Russia has strengthened with the pathetic Liar in Chief Obama as President.

Calling the U.S. and Russia “geopolitical adversaries,” the former GOP presidential candidate said the Russian president has “outperformed” Obama “time and time again on the world stage.”

“I think most observers of the international political scene suggest that Russia has elevated itself in stature and America has been diminished.”

While White House press secretary Jay Carney responded that he “obviously disagrees with Romney’s assessment, consider the case of Obama’s hollow red-line threats against Syrian use of chemical weapons.

While Barack Obama wavered for months after it was proved conclusively that Bashar al-Assad had indeed used chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war, it was Vladimir Putin who stepped up to plate with the suggestion of putting Syrian chemical weapons under international control that appeared to provide Obama a way out of the corner in which he had painted himself.

Make no mistake: Putin was not throwing Obama a lifeline; he was exploiting the president’s self-created crisis for the purpose of increasing Russia’s roll in the Mideast (as he also did with Egypt after Obama cut off military aid after the Muslim Brotherhood was removed from power).

Incidentally, Putin replaced Obama as the most powerful person in the world on Forbes’ Most Powerful People of 2013 list. Forbes cited the Syria debacle, Obama’s handling of the government shutdown and the NSA scandal among its reasons for bumping him from the top spot.

The Abject Failure of Reaganomics
.....this debt crisis did not originate with George W. Bush. It can be traced back primarily to President Reagan, who arrived in the White House in 1981 with fanciful notions about restoring America’s economic vitality through massive tax cuts for the wealthy, a strategy called “supply-side” by its admirers and “trickle-down” by its critics.
Reagan’s tax cuts brought a rapid ballooning of the federal debt, which was $934 billion in January 1981 when Reagan took office. When he departed in January 1989, the debt had jumped to $2.7 trillion, a three-fold increase. And the consequences of Reagan’s reckless tax-cutting continued to build under his successor, George H.W. Bush, who left office in January 1993 with a national debt of $4.2 trillion, more than a four-fold increase since the arrival of Republican-dominated governance in 1981.
During 1993, Clinton’s first year in office, the new Democratic administration pushed through tax increases, partially reversing the massive tax cuts implemented under Reagan. Finally, the debt problem began to stabilize, with the total debt at $5.7 trillion and heading downward, when Clinton left office in January 2001.
Indeed, at the time of Clinton’s departure, the projected ten-year surplus of $5.6 trillion meant that virtually the entire federal debt would be retired. That was what Fed Chairman Greenspan found worrisome enough to support George W. Bush’s new round of tax cuts aimed primarily at the wealthy, another dose of Reagan’s “supply-side.”
The consequences – especially when combined with Bush’s decision to rush into two major wars without paying for them – proved disastrous. The federal debt resumed its upward climb. By August 2008, just before the Wall Street crash, the debt was over $9.6 trillion, nearly a $4 trillion jump since Bush took office.

NEW CURE FOR INSOMNIA!

Or, get ready for Obama's state of the union address. The great unstated question of today: Can America come back, reclaim her old spirit, confidence and joy, can we make things again, build them, grow, create, push out into the new?

If we can it will be in spite of Obama and not because of him. No one's really listening to the president now. He has been for 5 years a nonstop windup talk machine. Most of it has been facile, bland, the same rounded words and rounded sentiments, the same soft accusations & excuses.

I see him enjoying the sound of his voice as the network newsman leans forward eagerly, intently, nodding at the pearls, enacting interest, for this is the president and he is the anchorman and surely something important is being said.

But nothing interesting was being said! Looking back on this presidency, it has from the beginning been a 17,000 word New Yorker piece in which, calmly, sonorously, with his lovely intelligent voice, the president says nothing, or little that is helpful, insightful or believable.

"I'm not a particularly ideological person."

"It's hard to anticipate events over the next 3 years."

"I don't really even need George Kennan right now."

"I am comfortable with complexity."

"Our capacity to do some good ... is unsurpassed, even if nobody is paying attention."

Nobody is!

He gave a speech on the National Security Agency, that bitterly contested issue, the other day. Pew Research found half of those polled didn't notice.

National Journal wrote that Americans greeted the speech with "collective indifference and broad skepticism." Of the 1 in 10 who'd followed it, more than 70% doubted his proposals would help protect privacy.

The bigger problem is that the president stands up there Tuesday night with ObamaCare not a hazy promise but a fact:

People now know it was BADLY THOUGHT, BADLY WRITTEN AND DISASTROUSLY EXECUTED. It was supposed to make life better by expanding coverage. It has made it worse, by throwing people off coverage. And—as we all know now but did not last year—the program was passed only with the aid of A GIANT LIE lie. Now everyone knows if you liked your plan, your doctor, your deductible, you can't keep them.

When the central domestic fact of your presidency was a fraud, people won't listen to you anymore.
