Is New Orleans turning into Bangladesh?

Yeah, we know, it's all Bush's fault. Everything that happens is George Bush's fault. In the next election 2016, it will be George's fault and republicans will still be at war with women according to democrats (despite the fact that abortions still were happening when Bush was president!)

Tired of the democrat crap.

Instead of discussing problems and WORKING TOGETHER to solve the problems, those in the Obama administration spend all their time attacking, instead of WORKING to solve our problems.

Why didn't Obama and the democrats who had TOTAL CONTROL of our government in 2008-Obama, Pelosi and Reid- create jobs, fix entitlements, rework our tax code?

Democrats FAILED the American people. They had total control and gave us ObamaCare-a TAX and yes, a rationing of healthcare (panel of 15 in Washington, DC designing a matrix on what care you are entitled to based on gender and AGE!)

YES, ObamaCare RAIDED Medicare (what happened to the Democrats 'LOVE' of those over 65) and gave the money to FUND the supposed 'cost neutral' of ObamaCare!

The Democrats' speil on the $716 BILLION STEALING from Medicare...oh, it's to stop the fraud in Medicare. The fraud in Medicare is created by SOME doctors-prosecute them as examples, most doctors shouldn't be punished by REDUCTION in payments because of a FEW doctors who abused Medicare.

Find the culprit, do NOT punish every damn doctor.

Obama= FAILURE
Democrats=FAILURE

Had total control of government from 2008-2010 and FAILED to give us JOBS, INDEPENDENCE from foreign energy, reduce cost of GAS, and the EXTREME cost of food.

FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE

The public spoke in 2010-remember that 'shellacking'? and STILL the democrats did NOTHING to COMPROMISE and work with Republicans.

Vote in 2012
Vote NO in NOvember
NO to OWEbama and Joe Biden
NO to Democrat Senators-we need Republican senators and a NEW president to overturn ObamaCare.

It WILL NOT happen if Obama is RE-elected and the democrats with Harry Reid, control the Senate!

NO NO NO NO to democrats in 2012

Obama got his wish for a Hurricane to Hit the US Coast during the Conventions. The Taliban wished for the same.

What Filth!

"Why didn't Obama and the democrats who had TOTAL CONTROL of our government in 2008-Obama, Pelosi and Reid- create jobs, fix entitlements, rework our tax code"

With George W. Bush in the White House, the Republicans had total control of the 107th, 108th and 109th congresses. Why didn't they
put an end to the phony war in Iraq, steer the country away from economic meltdown and fix the tax code themselves?

The reason Bush gave big tax breaks to our ruling classes
was so that they would be able to create more jobs.
But, by the time Bush left office the economy was losing 700,000 jobs per month. What happened to the jobs these billions of dollars in tax breaks were supposed to create?

We lost 8 millions jobs under Bush. What happened to those
billions of dollars in tax breaks? Where was the trickle down?

Great post! Wish those with half a brain would genuflect on what Romney's proposing - Bush on Steroids!

Geesh, did Obama use Executive Privilege to allow Bush to run in 2012?

Bush is HISTORY, Obama can still be OUSTED from the Presidency.

Pelosi and Obama are STILL in office, Bush isn't!

Obama will NEVER take responsibility for ANYTHING!

My sympathies to all those who have had to deal with the after effects of Isaac. Nothing is crappier than having no electricity. Itís not just losing perishable food since the refrigerator canít run, but there are no lights, no working appliances, but the worst is not having AC. A few years back the area where I live was impacted by a hurricane. We had no electricity for 3 hot, steamy days. It sucked.

What's this!? teabagging red states unable to fend for themselves! teabagging red states unprepared? Second-rate infrastructure in teabagging red states? teabagging red states with sub-par power grids? Thousands held, literally, powerless, by teabagging red states.

yes in reading the Isaacs updates during the last week it would seem his wind is diminishing with a trail of debris in his business connections. Joseph Isaacs creates a significant counterbalance with his MLM consulting, home based business hijinks and recently his new work "The Art of Flatulence" a definitive work. [email protected]

Does "you're doing a heck of a job Brownie" ring any bells? Typical right wing whiners!
