Turns out Fox news, and a couple conservative newspapers were right about these rogue Democrats, and their Imperial leader, Obama. Now they will get their just due. I don't care if we punish them, just keep the investigations going for the next 3 years so they can't do anything to further destroy this great country.

Your comment is as false as your dysfunctional Fox conservative news. Turns out Democrats are the party to attend Party On…
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Reagan and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now You can now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Truth is you can’t handle the truth !
Proof of republicans catastrophic false leadership is in the pudding.
Pentagon now asking $450 Million! To maintain Guantanamo Bay. May 14th Pentagon request $79 Million for detention,$20.5 Million for military Commission; Nearly double from a year ago of $12.6 Million, Additionally requesting $40 Million for fiber optic cables,$99 Million for operations and Maintenance and $200 Million for upgrades for their “temporary facilities”.? Estimating construction time will take another 10 years. All this for 166 prisoners that after over a decade of not even charging the suspects.
Guantanamo has become a black eye for our nation. Military administrators are overboard with their expenses and inefficiencies to process their prisoners to justice.
International Allies view this in disfavorable illuminating light of our “Human Rights Violations” Hypocrisy. Terrorist use this failure for our “Truth and Justice self proclaimed ideology to recruit additional terrorist. Consider those prisoners as being educated by Guantanamo archaic “Dungeons and Dragons” strategies. Those released will serve the terrorist once again with far more vigor.
$ 450 Million would serve this Nation more productively by increasing securities in our embassies that are in harms way. Something republicans have continuously denied to fund. Just as they deny the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Presently they have additional suspects that the military wants to incarcerate to Guantanamo Bay from the Libya and Benghazi affaires.
Military Justice has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt their inefficiency in such matters. No more funds to Guantanamo Bay detention center and allow this black eye to heal itself. Pentagon can draw on the sequested budget they have been assigned to or let the “Concentration Camp” fade away.

Democrats may help their rich friends and donors, but they have destroyed the middle class. You remember the middle class, don'cha? They need to be working, and paying for our rogue government. Well, they need jobs more then the rich need a great Stock Market. Doesn't matter. Listened to a couple Democrats last night bemoaning their fate. They are fretting that Obama's back to back scandals will hurt their chances of remaining a majority in the Senate, and making it impossable to take back the House in 2014.

Poor Obama, he has "governing headaches" :-(.

It is NOT about Obama, we can not careless about that incompetence Muslim man-child.

It is about lying to the American people and using the federal government to destroy what he considers his enemies.
