This would be funny, except it's not! Blaming the GOP for the deficit?

This from the administration that increased the debt in 3 1/2 years as much as Bush increased it in 8 years? This president increased the national debt to 99.7% of our GDP!

Another year of this administration and we'll be going bankrupt alongside cities in the USA that are already upside down.

The only person who has FAILED to UNITE, WORK TOGETHER with Republicans- who were voted into office in 2010,(you know, that 'shellacking' quote, unquote); is President Obama.

Millions spoke in 2010 and the President demonstrated his INability to work and compromise.

Dr. Krauthammer was right when he called Obama a narcissist.

Obama is unbalanced and rigid. We can't function as a nation when leadership is unbending.

Mitt Romney will work to unite this country.

Obama's past history indicates there is no room for compromise-it's ALL his way, or no way.

Time for Obama to go in NOvember.

Oh please. No one believes Sandusky is better then the President of the U S. They wrote that to make you jump up, and down like a monkey in a cage, and you obliged them. The President does have many shortcomings, not the least of which is his arrogance.

<sigh>

Always another promise of what can be done LATER!

secure the boarders
lower the debt
balance the budget
reign in federal spending
Obamacare

Is this the 'hope' or the 'change'?

You picked up on that right away while the Democrat loon is still bouncing off the walls of his cage and howling like a monkey. I do like comparing Sandusky to Obama though. It makes for "Spirited" debate.-_-

You're a disgusting POS who believes a pedophile Sandusky who rapes little boys is a better man than the President of the United States.

we are fully aware that the GOPTEA and the 1% are doing all they can to tank the economy just to win an election.
By November here is what the American people will remember after the G-roup O-f P-olitical T-erroristic E-uropean A-merican birthers took over the house.
1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA.
2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.
3) They pushed us into a credit downgrade.
4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid.
5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline.
6) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.
All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class. The people who will be most hurt by GOPTEA obstructionism are the working middle class. The rich 1% would hardly notice a dent. Which is why Rich Money Boehnor could care less.
It's time to fire Speaker Downgrade Boehner and the RINO he rode in on!
They tried to de-fund Obamacare - the biggest job killer there ever is.
They fought the democrats to include fiscal responsibility in any new spending plans.
The democrats - not wanting to give up any of their precious programs stopped the republicans from passing any spending cuts, thus creating the showdown over the debt limit.
They did not fight to KILL medicare/Medicaid (that's a demo-speak talking point) They actually tried to make it fiscally sound.
Most Republicans are normal everyday folk - not the top 1%(there's a lot of democrats in that bunch - The Republicans want the democrats to stop picking the pockets of those top 1% and giving it away to their voting base!
You know - the ones who work for ACORN (renamed)

We fired the worst speaker in 2010, she won't be back anytime soon.

Nobama
First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .
First President to violate the War Powers Act.
First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico ..
First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.
First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.
First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.

The credit rating down grade was due to the massive failures of CRA, fannie/freddie and the massive problems they caused. Dem policies.

I enjoy comparing Obama to Sandusky so let's go over their records:



1. Obama Assassinates/Kills US Citizens. Sandusky is a rotten pedophile taking advantage of little boys.

While Both are Despicable Crimes & people: MURDER is a HIGHER CRIME.


2. The People Obama Murder will not be coming back and were summarily denied their Day In Court by the Judge/Jury/Executioner Obama. Sandusky had to face his accusers and now will spend the rest of his life in prison. The same fate should befall Obama.

The Obama Legacy continues: Stockton, CA files for Bankrupcty



Stockton bankruptcy:'All that's left is sadness' for city

June 27, 2012

With the city of Stockton moving to become the nation's largest city to seek protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, Tuesday night's City Council meeting was quiet, with an evident sadness on faces in the packed chambers.

Many residents said they were there mostly to hear for themselves that the day so long expected had finally come.

For at least a moment, blame and anger seemed to be set aside.

"All that's left is sadness," said Gary Gillis, who said he lived his boyhood dream by becoming fire chief in his hometown. "Stockton has the most good, solid, down-to-earth people you'll ever meet. And now things are going to get even harder for many of them."

The working-class port city -- from where many of California's agricultural exports set sail -- lived largely on credit during economic boom times. The city borrowed millions of dollars for ambitious, eye-catching projects in the mid-2000s. Up went a sports arena, hotel and promenade. The city booked a Neil Diamond concert as a kickoff to better times. Houses in sprawling tracts sold quickly and with high mortgages.

When the bust came, few places fell as hard as Stockton. It has the second-highest rate of foreclosures in the nation. Property tax money dried up.

You're a disgusting POS and your opinions mean sh**. Anyone who isn't offended by your comment is no decent human being. These were innocent little boys. I'd trust their care in the hands of President Obama or Bush more than Sandusky. You on the otherhand....

Your frontal lobotomy has taken its toll on your reading comprehension my friend.


Let me make this a little easier for you: I Don't Hold Criminals in "High Regard." Both Sandusky and Obama are Criminals. Obama committed "Capital Crimes" (Murder) while Sandusky did Not.

Bottom Line": They're both rotten, criminal SOB's.
