And you're ignorant of history.
Actually, I posted earlier that you distorted history.

Now I'll add that you make up history due to your ignorance. Everyone knows the ignorant like you think they know when they are only lying about what they don't know.

Go back and answer my question.

Oh dear.... yet again with your libtard lies.... the GOP does not need to make your idiot racist messiah look bad.... he does THAT job fine all on his own. Just ask anyone living in a coal state.
Does all of you lid dumbasses drink the same fool-aid? That revisionist history sure seems to bite you in the ass so much.
Bush = 57 months of growth..... your messiah.... not so much.
Bush, in his first 6 years, the economy was far better then it has EVER been with your empty suit at the helm... geeee what happened after that? Oh thats right, you DUMS got control of both houses and the economy tanked... then oh-blamer the town liar got in (thats all 3 houses in dum control mind you) and for 2 solid years he has absolute control and did shyte (other than oh-dumbo-care).... I know I know.... now you will cry, lie and deny.... unfortunately for YOU, the facts just seem to get in your way..... yet again.
In closing, a simple fact for ya dolt... I can live in this country without contribute nothing leeches like you and be just fine.... without folks like me.... your kind starve.
It really must suck being you.
Uneducated republicans like you are probably the biggest problem this country faces. Instead of going to school, you would rather hear yourself drivel or you just regurgitate what you heard on FOX spews.

Let me set you straight about your bias towards democrats.

When George Bush left office we were in the greatest economic recession since the Great Depression. The dollar was at it's lowest value in American History. Our debt was larger than it had ever been. We lost two wars in the middle east. Unemployment was higher than it was under Reagan and foreclosures on homes hit the highest numbers in our history. More Americans filed for bankruptcy under Bush than at any other time in History.

So, for you to blame this all on the black man in the White House just confirms your vast ignorance and bigotry. Sorry your parents were ignorant and passed it down to you and your spawns.

As for your list of things democrats hate, we are better educated, we have a lower divorce rate, we have a lower rate of alcoholism, gambling addiction, drug addiction, porn addiction and we are happier.

I think your posts proved that quite well, angry beaver.

Now run along and go brush your tooth.

Well, honestly if Dear Leader gets his way, our envirnment will resemble China's. Remember he loves the way the Chinese government works. Please open your eyes. Why is China's pollution as bad as it is? Could it be because government dictates everything? Oh no. All the enlightened folks know that unbridled government is glorious! Dear Leader's EPA appointee will do her very best to ensure our environment resembles China's in due course. What the ignorant sheeple seem to fail to realize is that companies were well on the way to cleaning things up before the EPA began it's draconian regulation attack. We even had an incredibly clean energy source on the way. But we all know what our beloved and oh so benevolent EPA did to nuclear power don't we? When companies have to expend money complying wirh IDIOTIC regulations they have less to invest in newer cleaner sources of energy. But oh yeah. Government can efficiently choose where to invest resources right? Indeed
. See Solyndra as a case in point. Sheeple? Yeah we know who those brainless numbskulls are.

I hope they build schools in Texas, and SOON. When all their minorities start popping out multiple kids due to lack of birth control and access to abortion, they are going to need them!

This post is what I find most hilarious about liberals. Claiming to be the smartest person in the room while simultaneously wearing their ignorance on their sleeve. Please. Reading the latest thinkprogress or moveon diatribe does not make one educated. In fact it dulls one's brain and makea her into a platitude spouting mind numbed robot. A little history. Follow up on; a) CRA b) Barney Frank c) Janet Reno d) intimidation of lenders by government regulators. Maybe a little independent research will help open your eyes. But I sincerely doubt it. A closed mind like yours is like a reverse iron trap. Never letting a real idea get inside.

What is conservative about the government banning me from marrying a consenting adult of the same sex?
The current GOP is filled with bigots who judge others solely based on the color of their skin or their ethnicity.
That's why I have to vote for the Dems, because there is NOTHING conservative about the GOPsaurs.
Good, now you can quit calling yourself a conservative and just call yourself a "con."

Your a jit bag that must be hunted down and exterminated. Killed slowly. Then money spent on technology in a much poorer nation to make sure you are revived and killed again. Only to remind the sheep what a dum ph uk like you and the minions brought here. Those old books including religion told us why. You told us it was hate. Well here we are you freak.

The grammar and rather confusing content of your post suggest that your education is limited. I don't look down on you for that. I feel sorry for you. You accuse me of liberal bias and all the while you squawk like an uneducated FOX spews teabagger. You're so angry and defiant that you forgot this thread is about the EPA. Janet Reno has absolutely nothing to do with the EPA and NEVER DID. She has been out of Government for years now, Einstein.

You've made assumptions about me that are baseless. I don't read 'think progress' or 'moveon'. I R*E*A*D and I watch a variety of political shows; Face the Nation, Meet the Press, Chris Matthews, Morning Joe and the Daily Show. In other words, I listen to both sides but the GOP is making it increasingly more difficult to listen to anything they have to say. They are the party of greed, the party of bigotry and all that hooey about 'compassionate conservatism' is exactly why your party is dying a slow and painful death. They have abandoned their Christian principles by turning their backs on blacks, Hispanics, women, children, the poor, Vets, farmers homosexuals and on and on and on. In case you haven't heard, you can't win a national election in this country without their votes.

I guess y'all just have to learn the hard way.

Humorous. Again speaking as a typical liberal. Faux compassion. Claiming to have brains. Saying that she doesn't get her new from the promoters of ignorance and hate. It's all the same. Mindless. Rantings. Obfuscating. Dull. Repetitive. All the worthless tripe we've heard before.. I make no assumptions about you at all. It's fact. Like the tampon earrings ypu wear in honor of your favorite MSNBC hostess.
