We don't need numbers. How about more tornadoes? More droughts? More floods? Bigger Hurricanes? Different seasons?

Right. No climate change. What an idiot!

The problems we face and the stated courses of action for a solution to those problems.
Prove it was not the Party of "NO" that was causing those problems to endure longer than they should.
Easy, the party of "NO", the Democrats, were in charge of the budget and the excessive spending from 2007 until 2011, and in charge of the pResidency too since 2009. They gave barry everything he asked for, which created the current economic disaster.

The party of "NO" still controls the Senate, blocking everything the House has passed to improve the economy, and reduce the excessive government spending.

Why do you think the US should recover from a worldwide financial collapse faster than other nations?
You haven't been paying attention. Conservatives in this forum DO NOT expect an economic recovery with our current "tax and spend" pResident having been re-elected. In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if barry and his party of "NO" Democrats don't put us right back into a recession and another credit downgrade.

We can't tax our way into prosperity, only into an economic downfall.

It all depends from what perspective you rate a president.
If you believe the constitution should be followed to the letter then Lincoln was a terrible president.
If you believe successfully defeating the south on their secession efforts was a victory and subsequently ending slavery then he was a very good president.
Lincoln was responsible for the deaths of over 600,000 Americans, pretty much ended the Constitutional concept of the founding fathers to have strong states rights and a weak federal government... all for something that would have died on its own, from it's own unfairness, as it has almost everywhere. Is that the standard for a "good" president?

Lincoln's portrait is hanging in the Oval Office so unless there's an off chance that Obama uses it as a dartboard, I'm guessing he approves.

Lincoln paved the way for the creation of a strong, overbearing federal government, of course he approves.

And your point being?
I'am a PROUD educated Black man, nothing wrong with that is there?
I thought it was a typo the first time I saw it, PROUD educated black man, but it's not "I'am", it's either "I am" or "I'm". Just helping out with your education.

People don't usually have to tell others that they're educated, good, friendly, generous, religious, etc... people will pick it up without someone needing to tell them. We all know you're educated, you don't have to keep telling us... but we also all make mistakes, educated or not.

I am really glad he stopped succession, so not everything is right or wrong. I still think massive government began with LBJ. And he didn't help a soul, kind of like Obama.

It is a proven fact that Bush could not have seen that video prior to entering the classroom Jackass.
Why do you wish to make such a fool of yourself? FOX did not relase the video for twelve hours. The first Bush knew of the crash was when a secret service agent alerted him in the classroom.
Bush did nothing to save lives.
Your post is a red herring because it has nothing to do with my post.
It had everything to do with your meaningless claim, you're the one that wishes it didn't.

Honesty and Integrity used in the same sentence with republican or GOP is a complete Oxymoron, as the republican party hasn't had either since Dwight D. Eisenhower. Nixon started that trend for you righties and it has never changed
"Republican's" exposed Democrat President Bill Clinton for having neither "Honesty and Integrity", which led to his impeachment, and disbarment for purjury and obstruction of justice, not to mention breaking the oath he swore to the person he claimed to love.

That seems to work.

By this I take it that you mean that slavery would have died out on it's own without the civil war, what makes you assume that would have happened?

Does an educated Black man threaten your precious evident white entitlement attitude?
Not in the least, I just wish the majority of black folks would see the value of being educated. Too many young blacks seem to think their best opportunities will come from being rappers, dealing or sports, and not from getting a sound education.

Whitey can't do it, you need to be spreading that attitude/mindset. In that, obama makes for an excellent example of where a good education can lead.

It isn't about 9/11. We all know what happened. Four planes were hijacked and a huge catastrophic chain of events took place.
Bush lied about what he was doing because of the following facts.
1. The video he described was the first plane hitting the building which is CNN footage released twelve hours later.
2. The first knowledge he had was when he was told in the classroom after the second plane hit WTC2.
Bush was a nincompoop.
Meaningless drivel.

Today, the first of December, we have found it necessary to run the air conditioner. Generally at this point in the year, our furnace has been running for at least two weeks.

Global warming comes to mind...

As far as the Congressional budget goes, I'd sure like to at least see one. Obstructionism on both sides is really doing a lot to help the economy, isn't it?

It's not a good idea, Mr. White Guy, to go around patronizing black people.

Keep your "wishes" for the "black folks" to yourself.

Or at least within your plantation home.

I'd rather hear the 'real numbers' from you.
What 'real numbers' tell the truth about Bush's travel expenses? And since, as you said, blogs on the internet aren't to be believed, perhaps you'll link us to a PDF from the Bush Administration.
I'm on the edge of my seat....
How much was spent on Air Force 1 for trips a past President made to and from his home in Texas isn't worth my effort... but it was not "billions", unless he had his AF1 made of gold. How much was spent can't be changed.

However, how excessive the current pResident's spending is on discretionary travel is important. That can, and should, be changed... especially when one considers we have to borrow almost half of what is our deficit spending.
