The best thing that could happen is for a global nuclear war to break out. Wipe the slate clean and let mother start fresh. Because what we have now isn't worth trying to save.

Yes ... Clearly a global nuclear holocaust would be "the best thing" that could happen. You are so thoughtful and logical. <sarcasm>

I guess I could cut you some slack. With all the lies you've told, it must be hard to keep up with them. Think hard, it should come too you eventually.

Hint; "I'm just repeating what someone told me."

I was going to ignore your laughable "unintelligent" comment but I just can't. It's way too easy.

The "hint" was put in quotes because that was "your" reply to me when called out on such an idiotic statement.

Now who's the "unintelligent" one?.

Hint: It's really simple ... simple enough for even you to grasp ... since you remember this conversation so well, show me where I said president Obama has added more debt to the nation than "all" the other presidents combined. I don't recall ever saying that.

Of course you don't. It would be detrimental to your image as a big time "lawyer".

That link is to a fact check website that says, the email going around is mostly false, but please note, I didn't simply repeat what the email said.

The biggest problem with the email is that it said he had already added more debt than all the other presidents combined well before his first term had ended. I didn't say that he had already done that well before his first term ... i said after 4 years in office this would be the case, and it's true.

He added just under 7 trillion in marketable debt in 4 years and when he took office, our marketable debt (which excludes debt the government owes to itself, like SS) was 6.3 trillion on the day he was sworn in.

It's gotten to the point with the guy, that his other decisions overshadow his management of fiscal policy.

He traded 5 high level Taliban commanders, who will surely return to the battlefield and try to kill more American's and our allies for a war deserter, whose desertion already directly lead to the death of American soldiers.

He completely abandoned Iraq when we lost so many lives and spent so much money stabilizing it. I thought it was a mistake to go in there, but what was done, was done. All you can do is play the hand you are dealt, as President, the best you can. Dealing with Iraq was in his cards. He didn't have to leave a huge force behind, but now the whole country is disintegrating, because he left no one there.

He got played by Putin in Syria.

He is terrible at foreign policy.

He can't get anything done domestically. He's too concerned about his image and photo ops with illegal immigrants (and we wonder why they keep coming here ... my goodness they get to go to the white house and meet the effing president ... 99.99999999999% of American's cant even do that).

I can't stand the guy.

I checked ... it actually took him 4 years, 10 months to add more marketable debt to the nation than all the other Presidents combined.

That is good, right?

Close, but the exact quote was "Obama has added more debt than all the other presidents combined." When shown the folly of such a statement, the two of you merely went on the attack. Your excuse for such an obvious lie was to try and place the blame on someone else. I believe that is what's called, a fail. You discredited yourself at that te and forever more.

When he came into office in January of 09, as a nation we had a little more than 6.3 trillion in marketable debt (debt the government doesn't owe to itself and debt that must be paid less there is a default) and by October of 2013 our nation owed more than doubled that amount.

So, it took him 4 years 10 months to add more debt than all other presidents combined. That's not a lie, that's not a fail and there is no discredit in discussing the truth. If you wanna pretend it's not true, you can, but even the white house's own figures show this to be true.

When he took office, miraculously, 2.5 trillion dollars showed up on the debt. Care to take a guess how much money was borrowed from China that wasn't carried on the books until he became president?
How about trying to explain to everyone the approximate amount the debt has risen per year per president and what an existing war and major recession would do to those numbers to an incoming presidents numbers.

When did Bowe Bergdahl get tried for desertion? I know Fox news indicted him but, they don't really count in our judicial process. Plus, they drink a lot.
A trial? Do you think you will ever get the truth out of this administration? Are you effing kidding me?

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/06/...

His own roommate testified at a Senate hearing yesterday and said:

"Knowing that someone you needed to trust deserted you in war and did so on his own free will is the ultimate betrayal,"

*****

Members of Bergdahl's former platoon have said at least six soldiers were killed searching for him, including 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews, whose father Andy Andrews also testified at Wednesday's hearing."

*****
One of the parents of a solider who died looking for this dooosh:

"Exactly why did my son die?" Andrews asked. "Tell me one more time because I don't know what we've accomplished."

Darryn Andrews was killed in a rocket-propelled grenade attack while his unit was attempting to recover a disabled vehicle. Another soldier, Pfc. Matthew Martinek, was also killed in the attack. Andrews was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions in that attack, which are credited with having saved the lives of several fellow soldiers.

The military told Andrews' parents their son was killed searching for a high-ranking Taliban commander. Andy Andrews insists "Bergdahl was never mentioned."

But since the POW's release, he said, six soldiers have approached the family with the revelation their son was actually searching for Bergdahl when he died.

******

And the brain trust in the white house gave up 5 high ranking taliban commanders for this scum bag POS, who after spending a year on holiday in one of the weathiest countries on the planet will return to Afghanistan and plot to kill Americans.

I'm not really feeling up to undertaking a research project with spread sheets that show how much debt has risen per year per president, but thanks for asking.

The point of all this exchange was that you accused me of lying and really what I said wasn't the gross distortion of truth that you claimed it to be. It was pretty accurate. The how and why is really a separate issue from the fact that we have taken on a lot of debt during his presidency.

Not only has he taken on mountains of debt, but he has also done nothing to stabilize the long term entitlement programs that everyone who follows these issues knows will cause our deficits to balloon shortly after 2020, which is not that far off. He has failed to do this, even though everyone knows the sooner we do something, the less drastic and painful the remedies will be. He must have been state champion in kicking the can, when in school.

Rather than roll up his sleeves and get important/difficult work done for the American people, he'd rather take pictures with illegally present foreign nationals at the white house.

He's all fluff and no substance. He's a good speaker and gives good speeches, but can't translate them into action. Even if you like his viewpoints, he's such a terrible leader that he can't translate his viewpoints into action and policy, unless he acts like a dictator and enacts what are many times unlawful executive orders, that run counter to our Constitution and how our system of government is to be run.

He doesn't know how to lead. He has even been criticized by high ranking members of his own party and their staff for his inability to do so.

How about instead of a photo op with illegally present foreign nationals, Obama invites Lt Daryn Andrews parents to the white house to apologize for his irresponsible and reckless decision making that may very well likely lead to more parents losing sons/daughters in Afghanistan:

During yesterday's hearing:

"In perhaps the most poignant moment of the hearing, Rep. Randy Weber, R-Texas, asked Andy Andrews whether, given the option, he would be willing to trade five senior Taliban leaders to have his son back.

"If my son had been a deserter, then no," Andrews said. "Absolutely not."

"But my son was a man of honor," he continued, fighting back tears, "and I would do almost anything."

6.3?!?!?!

Put the crack pipe down. You've had entirely too much.

Step 1) At the end of 02', the debt stood at 6.4 trillion. Even without the 2.5 borrowed from China, it was at 10.7 trillion at the end of 08'.

Step 2) add the 2.5 too the 10.7. This becomes your starting point.

Step 3) Subtract that number from the debt number at the end of 12' and you'll see what everyone outside the bubble sees.

Your problem is obvious. You're using republican math. No matter how hard you wish for 1+1 to equal 3 1/2, it will never work. Try stepping outside the bubble and into the real world with the rest of us. I know you aren't used to it but, it's not as scary as your masters want you to believe. Stop being merely an obstructionist and start working towards solutions.

"Bush on the Couch"
>>>>>"Thro ugh their failure to impart in their son this vital coping tool, Frank holds that the Bushes, in effect, undermined George W.’s ability to embrace compassion and humanity in even its simplest forms.

Another prominent factor in Frank’s analysis surrounds the reality of George W. Bush’s heavy drinking, and the reborn Christian identity he has adopted to supplant it. Of Bush’s untreated alcoholism, Frank writes:“His abstinence protects him from the crippling effects of heavy alcohol consumption, but he remains in the grip of alcoholic thinking that the program of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), and the regular practice of its principles, helps its members keep at bay.”

Labeling the president a “dry drunk,” Frank goes on to detail how Bush’s fear of falling off the wagon — and the resultant avoidance he displays toward any situation(s) that might threaten his tenuous sobriety — forces him into a rigid and narrow routine of behavior, as well as a continual pattern of escape … that, along with the inflexible dogma espoused by his strict Christian beliefs, forms Bush’s intolerant and paranoid, black-and-white worldview — where he fancies himself a de facto Old West lawman, on the trail of an elusive roaming posse of ne’er-do-well evildoers. Whether he’s fighting terrorism abroad or political foes at home, Frank writes, Bush “shows a rigid inability to consider the idea that anything in his own behavior might qualify as destructive; instead he projects such impulses onto his many perceived persecutors, to maintain his sense of self.” Such self-righteous and pious crusading is at the heart of every decision Bush has made since becoming president in 2001.

In “Bush on the Couch,” Frank presents a compelling argument that George W. Bush is mentally unfit to lead the United States of America. It is an intriguing read with a poignant message — more a clarion call, really, to which all Americans should heed. As Frank writes at the end of the book:“Our sole treatment option — for his benefit and for ours — is to remove President Bush from office. It is up to all of us — Congress, the media and voters—to do so, before it is too late.”<<<<<<
