If anything worked better than Reaganomics, why didn't Clinton use it? Reagan's 17 years of continued growth also incompassed Clinton's time in office. Your claims are not backed up by history. Sorry, want a do over.

Reaganomics is not selling houses to people that can't afford them nor is it bundling loans that are trash and selling to companies as prime paper. Your boy Dodd and Franks screwed this with it being initiated by Carter, put on steriods by Clinton and it blew up when all the bogus loans started to dump on the market and money dried up.

"spending and controlling the size of government".
That's why they created, passed and signed into law the "Patriot" Act.
April 23, 2013
Parked around the airstrip at Lackland Air Force Base are more than a dozen massive C-5A Galaxy transport planes. There is no money to fly them, repair them or put pilots in the cockpits, but Congress rejected the Air Force's bid to retire them.
So every now and then, crews will tow the planes around the Texas tarmac a bit to make sure the tires don't rot, then send them back into exile until they can finally get permission to commit the aging aircraft to the boneyard.
It's not an unfamiliar story.
Idle aircraft and pricey ship deployments underscore the contradictions and conflicts as Congress orders the Pentagon to slash $487 billion in spending over the next 10 years and another $41 billion in the next six months. Yet, at the same time, lawmakers are forcing the services to keep ships, aircraft, military bases, retiree benefits and other programs that defense leaders insist they don't want, can't afford or simply won't be able to use.
In other cases, frustrated military leaders quietly complained that they were being forced to furlough civilians, ground Air Force training flights and delay or cancel ship deployments to the Middle East and South America, while Congress refuses to accept savings in other places that could ease those pains.
Yes, "funny".
Poor teabagger.
You're confusing tea party Republicans with neocons like GWB, McCain and Boehner etc. Neocons are more like big spending Democrats. They're the ones that started the unnecessary wars and created the dopey federal drug program and the Patriot act. They're also the ones who favor amnesty, just like their idiotic Democrat friends. Your irrational fear of "teabaggers" is ridiculous bordering on manic.

The President is aready a lame duck so he will have to really hustle for votes.
Talking out of your arse again, I see. Inventing strawmen...projecting your inadequacies and failures...making up stuff about Obama...misusing the term "lame duck."

Allah is NOT Yaweh, or Jehovah the God of Abraham. If Allah was, He would not be a "deceiver" which is claimed in scriptures in the quran. He is also not the God of Abraham since scripture claim in the quran to kill Jews and Christians (gentiles who believe in Christ). The Jews remain God's chosen people. Muslims are Canaanites. Those who were to be driven out from the land of milk and honey. Funny how you and your cult believe that hocum from the muslims but refuse to accept JesusChrist as a historical figure.
We can just clarify it by noting that it's yet another made-up deity, no different than Kali, Ahura-Mazda or Thoth. WHether it's one, or three, or five, or whatever.:)

Only someone who thinks that the Clinton boom period came out of "Reaganomics" would be stupid enough to pretend that booms and busts are the INEVITABLE results of a capitalist economy - particularly an inadequately-regulated one.

Naturally, being a Rightie 'droid, you blame Dodd and Franks for partisan reasons. But we all know that this came out of deregulation, the housing bubble, and the Wall St. casino's manipulation of deriviatives.

Clinton DID use it.

Guess who threatened to shut down the government?

Republicans.

Clinton said Republican amendments would strip the U.S. Treasury of its ability to dip into federal trust funds to avoid a borrowing crisis. Republican amendments would have limited appeals by death-row inmates, made it harder to issue health, safety and environmental regulations, and would have committed the President to a seven-year balanced budget. Clinton vetoed a second bill allowing the government to keep operating beyond the time when most spending authority expires. A GOP amendment opposed by Clinton would not only have increased Medicare Part B premiums.

Clinton emerged from the crisis looking like a leader on budget issues, his approval rating inched up and after the bruising Republican Revolution of 1994 and he went on to score a decisive victory over GOP nominee Bob Dole and Reform Party candidate Ross Perot in the 1996 presidential election.

During Reagan's presidency the annual deficits averaged 4.2% of GDP after inheriting an annual deficit of 2.7% of GDP in 1980 under president Carter. The real (inflation adjusted) rate of growth in federal spending fell from 4% under Jimmy Carter to 2.5% under Ronald Reagan.

17 years?

He didn't even have 17 months.

1980-1982 Recession
This was technically two recessions: the first six months of 1980 and 16 months from July 1981 - November 1982. It was partially caused by the Iranian oil embargo, which reduced U.S. oil supplies driving up prices. The Fed raised interest rates to combat inflation, reducing business spending. GDP was negative for six of the 12 quarters. The worst was Q2 1980 at -7.9%(-7.8%), the worst quarterly decline since the Great Depression (until the 2008-2009 recession). In Q1 1982, it was nearly as bad, plummeting 6.4%. Unemployment rose to 10.8% in November 1982, the highest level of unemployment in any recession. It was above 10% for 10 months.

And not much better after that.

Teabagger revisionist history.

Lies exposed again.

Poor teabagger.

Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams.
But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, "No thanks."
Yet in the case of the Abrams tank, there's a bipartisan push to spend an extra $436 million on a weapon the experts explicitly say is not needed.
"If we had our choice, we would use that money in a different way," Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army's chief of staff, told The Associated Press this past week.
If there's a home of the Abrams, it's politically important Ohio. The nation's only tank plant is in Lima. So it's no coincidence that the champions for more tanks are Rep. Jim Jordan and Sen. Rob Portman, two of Capitol's Hill most prominent deficit hawks.
Yes, teabagger "deficit" hawks

I get it.

Tea party republicans are the "smart" ones.

''If you're oriented toward animals, bestiality, then, you know, that's not something that can be used, held against you or any bias be held against you for that. Which means you'd have to strike any laws against bestiality, if you're oriented toward corpses, toward children, you know, there are all kinds of perversions ... pedophiles or necrophiliacs or what most would say is perverse sexual orientations.''

—Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), member of the Tea Party Caucus, arguing that a hate crimes bill passed by Congress would lead to Nazism and legalization of necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality, Oct. 6, 2009

”Do you know, where does this phrase ‘separation of church and state’ come from? It was not in Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists.… The exact phrase ‘separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State, ask them why they’re Nazis.”

—Glen Urquhart, the Tea Party-backed Republican nominee for the Delaware House seat held by Rep. Mike Castle, April 2010

“If we took away the minimum wage-if conceivably it was gone-we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”

—Michele Bachmann, Energy and Community Development Committee. January 2005

“…the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more.”

—Michele Bachmann, Speaking to Iowans For Tax Relief about the framers of the Constitution. January, 2011

Todd Akin, Missouri’s Republican Senate candidate, sparked controversy with a claim, made in a TV interview posted Sunday, that victims of “legitimate rape” very rarely get pregnant because their bodies prevent them from doing so.

Sarah Palin and her defenders have cited numerous ethics complaints against the Alaska governor as a practical reason for her resignation.

Palin said there is a difference between the White House and what she has experienced in Alaska. If she were in the White House the "department of law" would protect her from baseless ethical allegations.

"I think on a national level your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out," she said.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann kicked off her first swing through the Granite State with an unfortunate gaffe.

"You're the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord," she said Saturday morning at an event organized by the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire. "And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors."

Good, patriotic stuff … only the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” was fired about 70 miles to the south in Concord, Massachusetts.

Yep.

They did?

If these guys did that, they get my vote for president and V.P.

Either these guys were brilliant, in overriding, not only the regulatory agencies but the entire Bush administration?

So.......... were these guys brilliant or was Bush and his administration that incredibly stupid?

Which is it?

No, you're a lib. Which makes you unfixable as you claim teabaggers. As opposed to collecting garbage on the internet to later repeat. I actually investigated the Tea Party and found them to be much of what you say. Their one and only agenda was abortion. What that has to do with "taxed enough allready", I dont know, but dont get me wrong,both libs and abortion nuts need to "grow tomatoes". It would be much better for the rest of us.
