For the facts would be divesting to the Tea Intoxicated republicans. That’s why they specialize in red herrings a la carte. Gee did the Valor Victorian of Harvard actually graduate? This is so important to know. No, no, no stay away from the issues. By all means.
The issue is all about economics! Lets see how the parties measure up.

(NBER); Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR)
Rossen I. Valkanov
University of California, San Diego (UCSD)- Rady School of Management
Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov Concurred that the democrats fared better than the republicans by a wide margin. Democrats had consistent above average returns. Most Republicans had lower than average returns and greater volatility.
Santa Clara and Valkanov attribute the difference in returns to the stock markets being systematically and positively surprised to discover that democratic polices in a 80 year time frame of quantifiable data, are the best economic stewards for the nation. Differences are substantial.
Democrats had a respectable average return of 9.6% as when compared to republicans 0.58% average returns. If an employee’s 401[K] plan was fully invested in stocks at a value of $100,000, at the beginning of the employee’s 40 years of labor, apply this to both parties for returns.
Republicans Nest egg would have accumulated $224,375.
Democrates Nest Egg would have accumulated $ 3,912,210.
Now at $5,000, initial nest egg investment.
Republicans Nest Egg would have accumulated $126,027.
Democrats Nest Egg would have accumulated $1,985,526.

Which supports Debt To GDP figures. Last 4 years of Bush attributed 20.7% to debt to GDP. Obama of the 3 years has a Debt to GDP of 15.1%. A reduction to debt of 5.6% in spite of all the sabotaging efforts’ of the republicans.{ Hostage/Ransom} scenarios.
Republican’s present financial planning is similar to Herbert Hoover/ Bush…?
There you go giving them facts. You should know that facts mean nothing to the flea baggers, they only care about themselves. With both parties having medias under their control both sides get scrutinized.

had obama EVER faced the same level of scutiny as ANY candidate, he never would have made it past the iowa caucus in 2008.
Obama NEVER would have been elected State Senator of Illinois in 1996, with media scrutiny.

His opponents in the Democratic Party Primary were:

"Gha-is F. Askia of South Shore was a 39-year-old Black Muslim assistant to W. Deen Mohammed and a close friend of Muhammad Ali (who would host a fundraiser for him in November)..."

"Marc Ewell of Chatham was the 30-year-old youngest son of former eight-term state Rep. Raymond W. Ewell of Chatham..."

"Ulmer D. Lynch, Jr. of Englewood was a 69-year-old former building manager, ex-city laborer, and former precinct captain..."

Alice Palmer, the incumbent Democratic State Senator from Illinois, representing the state's 13th District, and was a shoo-in for re-election.

How did Obama "win"? Simple, he forced all four candidates off the ballot by challenging the signatures on their nominating positions.

STRANGLY, even though 3 of the candidates had WAY MORE than enough signatures, after the examination by the The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, they came up short.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_Senate_...

Signatures needed to get on ballot. 757

Askia(Muhammed Ali's buddy) had
1,899 signatures; approx. 2/3rs are ruled invalid leaving 688

Ewell
1,286 signatures; approx 1/2 are ruled invalid leaving 671

Palmer(incumbent)
1,580 signatures; approx. 2/3 are ruled invalid leaving 561
----------
This is a real streach-even for The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. No media scrutiny---the mystery man advances.

I reply in kind, Although I do believe your intellect is far superior than what you've shown? Which is why one wonders why you argue as you do?
