You know something, I'll bring up Bush whenever I think it's relevant. He lied us into 2 wars, he lied us into the belief that you can lower taxes without lowering expenditures (and be in two wars at the same time), he lied us into so much fear that we let him trash the Constitution and then left the mess for someone else to clean up. He ought to be on trial.
And, oh yeah, don't put words into my mouth. I don't love Obama, I don't even know the man. I do know that whoever followed Bush was going to have a nightmare on his hands. And you clowns who think you know how to fix this economy make me laugh. All you do is whine. Ya got nothing but whine and rag on the guy trying to save this country's bacon after Bush and Company damned near destroyed it. Actually, the way the Republicans are acting, we may not be able to fix it.
Go watch fox. Get yourself a good ole fix of hate.
Seems that we are all in this together J, whether one voted for Bush or not. Same as with Obama. Welcome to our nightmare.

I think the record is ten nuts. Sadly, I did not attain that honor, though the Obamtrons here do show a great dislike for me, especially when I post factual data that puts the lie to their claims of the deficit that Obama "inherited," and stuff like that.
a month or so ago they went a little 'nuts' and ran them up over 1000 per post...no kidding.....

His posture as referencing his stance on the majority of the issues at hand concerning America's welfare and existence or even his posture as the Chicago thug walking across the rooms or speaking lies to his "pop goes the weasel" audience is enough to irritate the sanest person.
I have a very difficult time walking into a room or even turning the tv on and the station is on to Obama speaking. Yet, the people in the audience must be deaf to his words, blinded to his lies or just ignorant.Which is worse?
This is so hard to decipher because many of these people are educated.
Watching him spew his arrogant, lying rhetoric is an excercise in nausea inducement. I can't watch him anymore either.

Still waiting for these jobs to show up.No response to calls and requests or resume.Where has all the money gone?
Just think--if all this money had been given to the tax payers direct,all mortgages would be up to date,all credit cards up to date,all autos paid for or up to date and the economy would be running like no one would beliece!!!
Obama promises--promises--all not the truth.
A private study indicated the nation's employers planned to cut 71,482 positions in January, up 59 percent from the previous month.

The monthly job-cut report from outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. said planned reductions rose as the retail and telecommunications sectors downsized. Planned job cuts in December totaled 45,094 in CGC's survey, the lowest total in 24 months.

Although ACORN is President Obama's favorite activist group, his administration has done the right thing by appealing Gershon's ruling. Then again, it was the Obama administration in the first place that started looking for ways to keep tax dollars flowing to ACORN. In a legal memo unveiled by the Justice Department in November, the Obama administration invented a loophole that allowed the government to continue funding ACORN.
If ACORN receives fresh CDBG funding, it won't get anything close to the full $3.99 billion available because it has to compete with other community-based groups. However, most Americans would be shocked to learn that the congenitally corrupt radical group may continue to receive federal tax dollars.
The Manhattan Institute's Steven Malanga calls CDBG "America's worst urban program," noting that the money "it has lavished on poor neighborhoods has had little impact, because nothing in the funding formula requires grantees to show that they're actually improving things. Few ever 'graduate' from the program, having achieved their mission. Instead, the funding spigot stays open, year after year."
CDBG is indeed good old-fashioned graft, an area in which ACORN has great expertise. Politicians of both parties love CDBG because it is flexible. The program gives them wide latitude when spending grant money and allows local leaders to use federal dollars on local projects that they wouldn't dream of spending their own local tax dollars on. ACORN, which has been receiving funding under the Great Society-era program since at least 1996, loves CDBG because it is adept at lobbying state and local governments to give it CDBG funds.
Nonetheless CDBG-funded projects do have to meet at least one of three "national objectives," according to HUD.
Funded activities have to be "[b]enefiting low- and moderate-income persons,[p]reventing or eliminating blight, or [m]eeting other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community, and other financial resources are not available to meet such needs."
Phil Gordon, the Democratic mayor of Phoenix, Arizona, boasts about the "critical role" CDBG funds have played "in revitalizing neighborhoods by addressing housing, infrastructure and programs and facilities serving youth, seniors, the homeless and those in poverty."
It's not clear which of the three criteria ACORN's CDBG-funded Housing and Community Organizing Center in Phoenix falls under.
Perhaps ACORN boss Bertha Lewis, whom the whistleblowers of the ACORN 8 say conspired to cover up a $948,000 embezzlement, can stop doing the happy dance over hidden camera videographer James O'Keefe's legal problems long enough to explain.

Great link, PL. This excerpt is especially hilarious....

Obama's Magic No Longer Works

But in this case, the public was more disturbed than entertained. Indeed, one could see the phenomenon in a number of places in recent weeks: Obama's magic no longer works. The allure of his words has grown weaker.

It is not he himself who has changed, but rather the benchmark used to evaluate him. For a president, the unit of measurement is real life. A leader is seen by citizens through the prism of their lives -- their job, their household budget, where they live and suffer. And, in the case of the war on terror, where they sometimes die.

Political dreams and yearnings for the future belong elsewhere. That was where the political charmer Obama was able to successfully capture the imaginations of millions of voters. It is a place where campaigners -- particularly those with a talent for oration -- are fond of taking refuge. It is also where Obama set up his campaign headquarters, in an enormous tent called "Hope."

In his speech on America's new Afghanistan strategy, Obama tried to speak to both places. It was two speeches in one. That is why it felt so false. Both dreamers and realists were left feeling distraught.

The American president doesn't need any opponents at the moment. He's already got himself.

Dang. Now we find out that the Lord Obama administration fudged the "jobs saved" number by 825,000. Oops.

Before his lemmings get all depressed he needs to go out there and promise them all FREE STUFF like unemployment checks for 5 years, free health care and maybe a nice late model car.

J Swift is 2008Bill. Notice the peanuts keep coming, circa old geezer 2008Bill. That libtard said he cared about his kids. Now he remains here (as a fake) pushing an agenda hoping he can get an extra dollar in his social security/Air Force pension check. He would screw his kids and grankids in a heartbeat for a freebe for himself. Obama is not paying his kids mortgages though. Idiot.

'Thank you, Freedom of Information Act, for blessing us with the tale of the SEC worker who looked up porn 1,880 times in just 17 days.
That has to be a record. And this guy gets even more points for persistence.
He was denied every time of those 1,880 times he tried to looked up porn.
According to the Washington Times, during a 17-day period, the SEC worker received about 1,880 "access denials," wherein the computer system blocked his attempts to view Web sites that were deemed pornographic.
And he's barely the only SEC worker whose love for porn was denied many, many times.
The committee filled more than 150 pages with records and transcripts on investigations into their employees looking up porn while at work.
The inspector general's office declined to identify the over 24 employees involved in the investigations though, because it "could conceivably subject them to harassment and annoyance in the conduct of their official duties and private lives."
These people are supposed to be watching wall street????

J,

I am really not trying to be a SA here. But this IS a political thread.If you want to discuss fishing or guns or how to bake a great cake, try another thread. You will be happier. If you want an Obama love fest, go to a leftist site where you can all say the same thing over and over to each other about the one you feel is a great leader.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Don't drive yourself insane J, it just isn't worth it is it?
Well put! LOL!!
