It's always been that way. But some (fancy talkers) are just able to schmooze their way better'n others.

Romney was nailed more for speaking the truth (about illegal immigration, gay marriage, abortion, etc.) then he was for lying.

There aren't many people who still consider Bush to be a hero, if they ever did. But I DO, and I'll tell you why. He was willing to sacrifice his political popularity for the sake of doing what he believed best for the nation. That kind of integrity is increasingly rare these days, and not just among politicians.
Bush has been subjected to the most vile, hateful criticism and insults that any POTUS has ever endured, and some of it continues even today, four years AFTER he left office. He's been accused of planning 9-11-01, accused of unleashing Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans, for heaven's sake, been called Hitler, Satan, etc. He's had shoes thrown at him, and even people in his own country have been PLEASED about it. Nevertheless, he has handled it with grace and dignity, rarely responding in kind, even the current occupant of 1800 Pennsylvania publicly blames him for his OWN failures.
In MY eyes, even if in no one else's, all that makes George W. Bush a hero. I don't care beans whether or not YOU do, or whether or not you respect ME for it.
he·ro [heer-oh] Show IPA
noun, plural he·roes; for 5 also he·ros.
1. a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.

2. a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.

3. the principal male character in a story, play, film, etc.

You have very low standards.

I cannot see Bush being heroic about anything in the traditional sense of the word.

There are many criminals who are hated. Does that make the heros? I THINK not.

You are correct about 9/11. Bush couldn't even get the story right three months later. He was way to stupid to plan such an event.

When it comes to spending and revenue, Obama led the nation even further away from Clintonism than did Bush.

If Obummer honestly wanted to see a dramatic change in the Bush era leadership, then he would have implemented a drastic change in his own policies, rather than promising more of the same for the second term.

It is really how he beat the drum with such visciousness and then all of the sudden it's a non-issue. But I let my anger spill over on you and there is no excuse for that.
It's understandable why you thought the way you did about him. I think you should keep in mind that one almost has to be a hypocrite to be an obama supporter.

Well that explains the big drop in spending this year.
Only if you're comparing this years excessive spending by obama to barry's previous years of excessive spending, but not when compared to the other presidents.

<quoted text>To pull a Reagan he has to get it up to about $27 Tril
I believe I've already said that's about where I expect the debt to be with four more of barry.

But, I was talking dollars, not percentage. Reagan had to rebuild many things after four years of Carter... heck, he even had to replace the WH dishes because the ones Carter left were in such bad shape.

But I asked about spending since the Republicans took office.
I also asked how much spending had gone up under Obama from bush's last budget.
We haven't had a deficit below $1 trillion since barry took over. That's why he's added $5.5 trillion to the national debt in less than four years.

Once obamacare kicks in, we'll see some SERIOUS deficits that will make barry's current level of gross overspending look almost thrifty.

You didn't address the question.
A few days ago you said you didn't know what Romney's job plan was so how did you know he had nothing to offer?
You know what? Nevermind. You never had any intention of exploring Romney's ideas. For some people if Obama is in the running there are no other candidates and you're one of them...... otherwise known as a low information voter.

I might be wrong, but weren't you the same one that was asking what Romney's economic policy was... three weeks after the election?

I'd sure like you to link me to some of the parameters that you think are improving under obama, actual numbers and charts, not editorials.

You didn't even know what Romney's policies were, so it must have been something other than the difference between the policies of obama or Romney.

Methinks you didn't know much about obama either if you think he wasn't telling fibs and flip-flopping.

&fe ature=fvwrel

So if both were fibbers and flip-floppers, and if you didn't know the difference in their policies, what could that deciding factor have been?

It did, but not so much these days... at least not in the USA.

Actually, I think it's the other way around. I think it's the "green" energy folks doing the scamming and making the quick buck.

I agree that we're experiencing another of nature's warming cycles, just like we were experiencing a cooling cycle in the 80s... which, btw, was also attributed to man.
