Well, it is official. Bark has spent us into debt an extra $3 trillion since the day he took office.

With three trillion dollars, you could buy 150 aircraft carriers such as the USS Ronald Reagan and outfit each of them with 45 of the newest fighter jet, the F-22 Raptor.

If you were to stack $1000 bills in a tight stack,$3 trillion would be 203.7 miles tall. That is stacked, not laid end to end and those are 1000 dollar bills! Grover Clevelands! Of course, it would be hard to make that stack since as of last year, there were only 165,372 of them left which only adds up to a paltry $165,372,000.

Thanks for the debt, Bark, and to think that you still have another 2 and 1/4 years to go...

No, bush's idea was to have it invested in stock markets and bonds, but in individual accounts. Taking Oct '07 to Mar '09 into account, it would be better just to totally eliminate the system to include stopping any checks going out.

Wahahahaha Hench. So its your position that Bush, having forwarded a few schekels to Detroit right at the end of his term, somehow OBLIGATED Obama the Telepromper Stooge to take over the company, to make it a US taxpayer owned company??!

ROFLMAO at Hench.

BTW, Hench, here is an inconvenient truth on the $3 trillion increase in debt that The Kenyan and Pelosi/Reid have saddled us with. And, Hench, WHAT DO WE HAVE TO SHOW FOR THIS $3 trillion?

Almost 10% unemployment, little or no "investment," and millions of private sector jobs lost.

Funny, I thought The Kenyan told us the "stimulus" would create millions of jobs and keep unemployment low. I thought the Kenyan ran against high Bush deficits.

Seems The Kenyan has made everything worse. Seems the voters realize that The Kenyan is a fake, a fraud, and a phony. An empty suit speech reading huckster. A joke. A lackey. A lazy narcissist who has never held a real job.

FUBO and GTFO. Phase I is in just a few more days.... Phase II (the GTFO stage) begins immediately after the conclusion of Phase I.

It took the nation hundreds of years to amass $10 trillion in debt. It took Bark the Kenyan and Pelosi less than 2 years to increase it to $13 trillion, with no end in sight.

At this rate, Bark the Kenyan would increase the national debt by 50% in his first (and lets hope last) term of office.

No wonder they talk about him like he's a dog.

I noted that the article you posted, in your previous post, about the debt that Bark has run up, came from ABC. Even the main stream media is jumping on him about it. The article also noted that GWB ran up 4.9 trillion in 8 years while Bark has run up 3 trillion in 1 year and 9 months. We all thought GWB was out of control but Bark just puts him to shame in the out of control category.

"I am having a great time" watching the Dems in mayhem and panic.

Unfortunately, though, the incompetence of Obama the Teleprompter STooge is costing future generations dearly, and his incompetence in pursuing his "comprehensive Afghanistan strategy" (more empty words from Bark the Kenyan) is costing the lives and limbs of our brave soldiers. Obama should be impeached:

"To the soldiers and Marines risking their lives in Afghanistan, restrictions on their ability to aggressively attack the Taliban have led to another enormous frustration stalking morale: the fear that the Karzai government, with the prodding of the administration of President Obama, will negotiate a peace with the Taliban that wastes all the sacrifices by the U.S. here..."

Some GOP House Leaders Push Compromise
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/10/19/go...

Some of these guys just don't get it. Compromising, over the years, is what has gotten the Republican party in trouble in the past. I would rather see stalemate rather than let the Democrats slowly chip away at the Constitution.

Bush's fiscal legacy is poor, to be sure, but Obama's is much, much worse.

But, lets keep in mind that Bush inherited a crashed stock market, which was the biggest issue by far when he took office, and in recessions we run deficits (just about by definition.)

Then we experienced the 9/11 terrorist attacks just 9 months into his term (and the Bush haters blame Bush while fully absolving the Clinton Administration - lol).

Then, he had the costs of the Medicare expansion, and the huge cleanup costs of Katrina, and of course the cost of the tax cuts and the wars.

Fiscally, Bush didn't do a good job, but its explainable. At least New Orleans got more or less fixed, and we won in Iraq.

What does Obama have to show for his massive deficits? Nothing. 10% unemployment. Projections (his own) that show $ trillion plus deficits for eternity.

Bark the Kenyan is a joke.

Hey hypocrit. I already stated that we could get rid of Medicare and Medicaid and if you don't have insurance and can't pay cash you can die on the street.

My issue is providing insurance to poor people and non-productive old farts while young working people get the shaft.

Either do away with ALL socialized insurance OR go to ALL socialized insurance. But do not go half-stepping and screw working people.

Is that clear now airhead?

You are absolutely correct. And if the Republicans can not capitalize by retaking Congress it is just a testiment to how much of a loser they really are.

What else could explain not taking Congress from someone like Reid and Pelosi?

I've been stating that for months, and Devin keeps asking for the accounting, which I have done so ad nauseum. And the idiot still says it is Bush's fault, or Bush's money. ROFLMAO

Anyhow Bush was evil for spending just little more than that over 8 years (c.$5trillion). Based on Obama's spending we can expect to see $12 trillion or more added (a total deficit of +$24trillion) by the end of his term 1/21/2013. Naturally, Obama/Democrats/Devin will still be blaming Bush.

Saving Ohio from Failures wrote:
Why do Republican voters support the same failed policies that created the financial collapse? Most Democrats, however,(who are a diverse group that has been challenged to understand and relate to others different than themselves) have developed and evolved into a party that studies and understands the issues. We speak out on the issues because we can even if it is intimidating to “some” no matter what --- and not because we have a hidden agenda based on greed.
Republican voters must not place themselves in a position to serve any demagogue who reaches out to them even if they are having a hard time weighing the issues or processing what they are being told. In fact, candidates like Kasich try to make it seem like the voters need him to tell them what to do. But, it is always a dangerous sign when a leader fails to serve the citizenry and instead serves and speaks for businesses --- and is backed by those businesses.(Rich Germans backed Hitler.) A leader should represent the needs of the citizenry not serve as the “front” for businesses that need him to support loopholes... incentives... and/or the tax cuts that they want.
At 58, Kasich knows better but has always counted on the Ohio voter to remain in the dark. This campaign season, he says he has to cut taxes to ensure that more businesses move to Ohio but he already knows:“the business inventory tax is being phased out, utility poll taxes were eliminated sometime ago, 81% of Ohio companies pay no more than $2000 a year in income tax, and workers compensation taxes have been quite low for several years.”Based on this information, it is plain to see that he is just counting on the voters to remain lazy and uninformed.
He also knows that he has a record that says he cannot govern. In fact, his solution for balancing budgets has already been tested, tried and has already failed. His plan (in the past) included supporting:“financial deregulation, NAFTA, welfare reform, and any greed bubbles that appealed to someone with his morality such as the housing bubble, etc.--- all built on pro-business policies (loopholes, incentives, low taxes, and outsourcing) and the “steal from the poor” entitlement spending cuts.” But he does not seem to know that we know that these ideas all led to the collapse and will lead to more financial failure if this formula is used again.
What he is really hoping for is that voters do not remember that the Ohio Republican Party failed to create jobs for seven long years.“The state began losing jobs in 2000, including seven years when Republicans held the governor’s office and both houses of the legislature until January 2009. Republican George W. Bush was president for eight of those years.” In fact, the Republican Party and their programs and/or policies as a whole, set the stage for the failure and the collapse of the U.S. economy that took Ohio jobs with it.
But the real question of all questions that he has failed to answer is: Has he learned anything from this Republican failure at governing that has cost millions of Americans their jobs? For some reason he does not want to answer this question since he is campaigning on the same ideas that we already know have failed. Yet, it must be asked until his answer explains why he is running on failed policies. But even then – remember that he is a gambler… who likes to speculate… to take risks… to calculate how many untruths we can stomach since his bid for the governorship is not about us: it is about how much money he and his cronies can make even if the economy fails --- even after all is said and done. Remember, he will do anything for a dollar bill even take 50, 000 dollars for 4 hours a month of work… The only thing that can change this is if we… you do your own homework so you can make an informed decision.
LMAO, Ohio is in the crapper with one of the highest unemployment rates due to consistent Democrat/Union mismanagement and greed.
