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?
Its unlikely they will retake the Senate, and I bet that's what you are counting on so that you can later claim they failed your stupid, arbitrary test....

But they should take the House.

My, my, how soaring expectations ("Yes we can!")have crashed down to earth in only a year.

ROFLMAO. This was inevitable when people believed the nonsense that Bark read from his ObamaPrompter during the campaign.

I have some of his "economic plans" downloaded. If you need a laugh, I can post them again.....

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.
Come on now, Our Lord Obama is spending us out of the poorhouse that he inherited from the policies the previous 8 years.

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?
All or nothing? Great reasoning.
Those "non-productive old farts" are who've paid their whole lives into a system that promised "security" and who the government has systematically stolen from. Both parties are guilty.

Like it or not, lack-wit, it's the working man that pays ALL the taxes - the key is to put more people to work not lean on the ever decreasing work force in support of the ever increasing, pathetically parasitic, dependent class, because the more benefits you demand the heavier the load. Even you should understand that.

Earth to libatrd!

Regarding item 3, Bush is no longer president. In case you haven't noticed, Obama has been president going on two years now, has increased troop counts and hired the same general Bush used libterds like Moveon Org referred to as General Betrayus. Things are worse now.

The only item you are correct on is item 2. How's the weather on the moon?

Bark Obama does exactly the same thing, with his stupid, empty, meaningless rhetoric.

All the guy does is read stupid speeches, take vacations, and play golf.

They simply ignore the FACT that Republicans DID put forward alternative health insurance reform plans. They simply invent their own reality.

So they invent these stupid rhetorical arguments (like Bark). Like, if Republicans oppose ObamaCare they must favor eliminating all health care spending. LOL.

Their silly tactics are now apparent to everyone, even people who weren't really focused on politics. President Axelrod deceived these people during the 08 campaign, but now these voters are onto Bark's tricks.

Yep. Obama didn't spend $3 trillion. Bush did it. Health care costs aren't rising. They are actually falling and if you are someone who just happens to have higher premiums and less coverage, well... blame Bush. High unemployment? Bush's fault.

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, who since leaving office has acted with dignity (in refusing to address Obama's absurd smears) must be having a good laugh at Bark.

Bush never blamed anyone, and he easily could have. Bark Obama is a trash talking Chicago Street Thug. The most unprofessional and incompetent president in history.

Oh look, unemployment surges to a stunning 10%!!!! Oh look, 100's of thousands of EMPLOYED americans are dropping their healthcare because the Obama mandates are making health insurance too expensive to afford, and now these newly uninsured will be fined by our federal government for not carrying healthcare. Liberals are stupid mother #^%$#s.

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.
Dave, the Magic Words are "Budget Years." Clinton's budget years are 1 Oct '93 to 30 Sep 01. bush's are 1 Oct 01 to 30 Sep 09. Obama's started 1 Oct 09.

Now, that is not to say that Congress, in Conjunction with a Presidential request can not appropriate more money in 8 months they are elected before their first budget goes into effect.

An excellent example is President Obama's $787 bil stimulus package. However, very little of that was actually spent in FY '09 and what was spent was mostly tax cuts. So it did not count for much in FY09. The majority was spent in FY10 and the remainder went into out years and has not been spent yet.

It will be hillarious to see the Dems in January and February as the Republicans put the brakes on spending. There is no reason they should not balance the budget in time for the 2012 election assuring a Republican sweep of the election. Even if they have to shut government down. And of course there is always the additional tax breaks needed to spur the economy onward.

You conveniently left out the hundreds of billions of supplementals that Obama signed. Here is just one story I quickly found on the supplementals...

http://budgetinsight.wordpress.com/tag/fy-200...

And,I believe about $150 billion of the "stimulus" was spent in 2009. I will look that up.

But, if you are right, that hardly any of the stimulus was spent in 2009, then it means that you are admitting that Obama lied, when he talked about "shovel ready" projects and saying the stimulus saved the economy.

Further, lets say that it would be analytically appropriate to pin the entire $1.4 trillion FY09 budget deficit on Bush, even though he was in office for only about three months of that fiscal year.

That STILL MEANS THAT OBAMA IS INCREASING THE DEFICIT AND DEBT FASTER THAN ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY. Obama's own projections show that....

1. No, you are in DENIAL. TARP $350billion, ARRA $800billion, Omnibus $440billion, 2010 budget $1.3trillion added to deficit.
2. Yes. Obama was handed 7.6 unemployment. Currently 9.6. That is ALL OBAMA. Or will you blame Obama's failed plans and promises on Bush too?
3. So you are blaming Bush for Obama's failed plan? Amazing! I had no idea Bush was responsible for the decisions and orders given by Obama. Was there a change in the order of authority? Does the previous administration trump the current administration? Is that how our government works? Maybe Devin can give us all another lesson of how our government functions. Maybe Devin can also finally prove once and for all that Congress can not have vacant seats, as he claims.
4. No, you are in DENIAL. Look at the reports. Why then if insurance is not increasing are people being quoted in the news to increased rates? Why are companies left and right trimming the benefits to their employees?
TARP was bush and will add less than $50 bil when it is over. I have already explained how the Stimulus was hardly a contribution to FY09 budget deficits.

2. Did I or did I not say the unemployment figure was correct? But since you want to argue, Obama's policies do not become effective on day one. He inherited job losses of over 600,000 per month. When he was able to stabilize the job losses thru his policies the unemployement rate was about what it is right now. The manufacturing sector has actually been creating jobs for a few months now thanks to Obama's policies and the unemployment rate remains largely stable, not getting worse.

3. I find it interesting that you give bush all the blame for 9-11, none at all to Clinton and then you argue this. Be consistent. I continue to give Clinton responsibility for a good portion of 9-11 so I have no problem giving bush responsibility for a good portion of this. When you admit that bush had 100% of 9-11 then you can argue this way without being hypociritical. And lets not forget the "bush" recession of '01 either.

4. Insurance rates increased each and every year bush was in office. Was that due to his prescription package? Should we get rid of Medicare and Medicaid also, insurance rates have increased about every year that they have been around as well.

In fact, I am pretty certain insurance rates have increased almost every year since health insurance has been available, maybe it is not the government that is the problem. We just need to get rid of health insurance altogether. I bet that will bring down costs.

No, I am just going by your comments. How could they fail to take the Senate when the Dems have been so bad?

But, even if the just take the House, I fully expect them to shut down government and go for a balanced budget by 2012. They have to based on their own rhetoric.

$158 billion of stimulus distributed from February to September 30, 2009.

That is how much Obama's "STimulus" a HUGE SUPPLMENTAL, added to the deficit, on top of the other supplementals he signed.....
