A presidential spokesman says at least 11 Malians were killed and over 60 injured after the country launched a military intervention to fight al-Qaida-linked rebels advancing on a crucial town.

Yes they did. They held super majorities in both Houses of Congress. Republicans were powerless to stop them because they simply didn't have enough votes. That's how we got Obamacare, remember?

And in case you forgot your 7th grade civics lesson, Congress alone has the authority to borrow money against the credit of the U.S., and thus increase the national debt. Read Article 1 Section 8.
and the major reason our debt has in creased sharply is, of course, the combination of the Bush tax cuts and military spending
Bullshit. When Republicans controlled Congress they had those same bills to pay, yet managed to do it while borrowing $325 billion per year. As soon as Democrats regained control of Congress after the 2006 elections, they quadrupled that amount to $1.4 billion per year. You have google. Look it up for yourself. It's a fact. Same bills to pay, plus another $1 trillion spent on Democrat pet socialist projects like African Penis Washing programs and Cowboy Art Festivals.
True, and that's at least partially true because of Republican opposition.
What??? More complete and utter bullshit. Republicans haven't opposed any Democrat budgets because they haven't put any on the table. The ONLY budgets that came up for a vote in the Senate in the last 3 years have been the two jokes that Obama proposed, neither of which got even a single favorable vote. Not even one Democrat voted in favor of them. Even if every Republican in the Senate had voted in favor, they both still would have been defeated by the Democrats themselves.

Face it, Senate Democrats have violated the law by failing to enact a budget. They haven't even tried. They passed a hugely bloated budget 4 long years ago, and don't want to pass another because they can use the old one as their baseline spending on all of the continuing resoultions. If they passed another budget, they wouldn't be able to run over $1 trillion deficits year after year.
At least you admit it was Congress, both parties, and not Obama responsible for this.
It's not the fault of both parties that no budget has been passed. The House Republicans have done their job. Like I told you, they have passed budget bills every single year they have controlled the House. The fault lies with the Senate Democrats who have refused to bring any of those budget bills up for discussion and a vote, nor have they offered any budget bills of their own.
See above, and your continued obsession with the budget is noted.
It's not an obsession, it's a fact. And it's a fact they you are running away from. You can't bring yourself to admit that Democrats are responsible for royally f*cking up our economy and driving us into bankruptcy.

Of course, because that would be irresponsible.
ROFLMAO!!! Balancing a budget is irresponsible, especially in light of the fact that we are $16 trillion in debt???? Lord, are you nuts?
No one but extremist partisan Republicans supports that nonsense.
Bullshit. You continue to utter the new Democrat tactic - whenever you have no reponse to your opposition's valid claims, charge them with being extremists and nutjobs. That's nothing but cowardice.

And of course it's simply false. The truth is that balanced budgets are very wise, and that's why 49 out of 50 states require them.
IOW, it's a fact that Democrats won't support irresponsible Republican bills.
Passing a budget bill IS responsible. Not passing one is irresponsible, not to mention a violation of law.

Senate Democrats didn't vote down those Republican House budget bills, they didn't even bring them up for a discussion, let alone a vote. They had every opportunity to bring them to the floor for discussion, modification, and a vote. Yet they failed to do their duty as required by law.
More partisan nonsense. It is not "entitlement programs" which are "bankrupting" (itself false) the nation.
Is your head buried in the sand??? All of the socialist entitlement programs represent the lion's share of our spending, and they are vastly increasing every year, consuming larger and larger portions of government revenues. In just a few short years, those entitlement programs will outpace ALL government revenues.

Yes indeed, entitlement programs are the driving force behind our runaway government spending. Keeping your head buried in the sand does not change that fact, nor will it prevent a national bankruptcy and economic collapse.
Those are NOT facts, nor are they factually presented, nor are you anything but a partisan buffoon.
Nothing of substance from you to rebut the facts I've presented. Nothing but cowardly personal insults.

That's typical from retarded liberal idiots.
Guess who

"Complete and utter bullshit" perfectly describes your post full of partisan twaddle. You simply blame Democrats for everything and leave it at that - why? Because thinking isn't your strong suit.

Sad to see a modern-day American posting garbage like some brain-dead McCarthyite or Bircher from the '50s. No wonder this country's not "great" anymore with divisive, ignorant, reactionary slugs like you voting for its leaders.

ROFLMAO!!! Typical retarded liberal idiocy from you. When faced with the facts you tuck tail and run, leaving a false and weak ad hominem attack in your wake hoping to distract anyone who might notice that you just had your ass handed to you.

Umm, my post should have made it clear that as far as I'm concerned, you PRESENTED no facts - just more partisan twaddle, as I said. Answering everything with 'The Dems did this, the Dems had the majority, it's all the DEMS' fault!' isn't really answering at all.

You have to love it, though, when some dumb rightie takes a big dump, then claims he's "handed your ass to you." It's the only way you guys can 'win,' I guess - lie about it! LOL

Your "concerns" don't mean jack shit. Everything I posted was fact, and all of them together clearly show that Democrats are responsible for royally f*cking up the economy.

You're just so far in the tank for the socialist agenda you can't bring yourself to acknowledge facts and reality.
Answering everything with 'The Dems did this, the Dems had the majority, it's all the DEMS' fault!' isn't really answering at all.
It's pointing out facts. The Democrats did indeed double the national debt since regaining control of Congress after the 2006 elections. The Democrats did quadruple the annual deficit to $1.4 trillion per year. The Democrats did block the proposed balanced budget amendment. The Democrats did block House passed budget bills the last two years. The Democrats have failed to pass a budget in almost 4 years.

Those are all facts my friend. Facts that you are running away from as fast as you can.

And yeah, I not only handed you your ass, I knocked your little dick in the dirt. You are so butt hurt you can't even bring youself to acknoweldge those facts much less offer some type of response.

All you can do is play the coward and run away like a little sissy while hurling more petty 3rd grade personal attacks. IOW, you're just playing right out of the playbook of the typical retarded liberal idiot.

Nothing you posted was remotely honest or factual. But thanks for making me laugh with the image of you jumping up and down like a monkey, hooting and grunting and pretending you "won" and I'm a "sissy." EXACTLY what I'd expect from a clown like you.

"Third grade attacks?" LOL! Look in the mirror, little boy.:)

Typically, Democrats are liberals and Republicans are conservatives. Of course that's not classical liberalism of the type our nation was founded upon, but rather neo liberalism of the very socialist type.

Liberals today like to call themselves progressives because they know the term liberal in the common vernacular of the day is a negative term.
