Looks like the idea of fair treatment has been thrown out the window. Barky Claus won the election by promising to take from working white americans and give to blacks and hispanics on welfare. America is finished.

It is funny that they actually used the name "Santa Claus" in the article. Since the days of Reagan the Republicans have been using
Jude Wanniski's "Two Santa Clauses Theory". Wanninski first wrote this in 1976 and was immediately hired by the Reagan campaign and later by his administration. It has become the blueprint for the GOP ever since.

The theory is simple. When a Republican is in office they should spend money like crazy to stimulate the economy then when a Democrat takes office they should start immediately screaming about the deficit.

Reagan and Bush Sr. both ran up the deficit and as soon as Clinton took office the deficit became a huge issue. Clinton of course eliminated the deficit and left Bush Jr with a surplus. He in turn spent eight years running up the deficit and nobody on the right cared about it until Obama came into office. Then predictably it suddenly became a "crisis".

Since you are ranting mindlessly about welfare it would be interesting to see what percentage of the annual budget do you think is spent on welfare programs. What do you think? 50%, 25%, 10%, 1%?

Actually the answer is none of the above. The correct answer is 0.7%. Not really worth getting too worked up about. Especially if you consider how much the GOP gives to corporate interests and the rich.

Now wait one minute.......you have blamed Bush as the reason osumsht 'inherited' a bad economy.....you blame Bush for making odumsht spend more than any two term president....and yet when the Republicans set the stage to create a surplus, you give Clinton credit?!!!!!!? If Clinton was such a miracle man, why can't oscumma create the same 'miracles'? Stupidity runs rampant among liberals. The stupid don't care their leader won't reveal his dismal school records. They don't care that hes a complete dumbsht in middle school math. Idiots put their trust in an idiot they can relate with.

One correction but the rest is scaredly precise---
Reagan put us all on a credit card. That's right. And as soon as legal tender stopped flowing, down went business, the economy went and the deficit rose astronomically. Plastic to beat the band = less consumer confidence. Thus began what we are experiencing today, lost manufacturing jobs and a failed economy. 30% manufacturing base here in 80's versus 4% today. Thanks to Reaganominlcs. Bastard republicans.
