Damn shame.
The sinking ship is the US government. You'd know that if you could count money and realized money doesn't grow on trees.
What you call rats are the only people who will do the only thing that will keep the ship afloat - CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

And taxes go up on everyone. Thanks, Obama, you liar. You and the Dems have no care about the debt you have and are putting this country in. The continued debt is ruining this country. This is all on your shoulders so quit blaming Bush and the GOP. Tax and spend, spend, spend - the Democrats way to ruin a country.

You do know you're displaying the Willie G skull, don't you?
I suppose you're paying the appropriate royalties to Harley Davidson and not stealing it, right?
Or, do you feel that it's yours just because it belongs to someone else and you don't have it?
... you voted for Obama. I'm guessing the latter is true.

How do you cut spending and clean up the GOP mess?

Cleaning up after the debacle of the former administration takes a while...Faux news lies to you.

Bruce Bartlett on Where the Right Went Wrong

Bill Moyers talks with conservative economist Bruce Bartlett, who wrote "the bible" for the Reagan Revolution, worked on domestic policy for the Reagan White House, and served as a top treasury official under the first President Bush. Now he's a heretic in the conservative circles where he once was a star. Bartlett argues that right-wing tax policies -- pushed in part by Grover Norquist and Tea Party activists -- are destroying the country's economic foundation.

You have something in common with Obama. Neither of you have a clue how the government works. That's probably because neither of you have ever read the Constitution.
In the Constitution, it tells you very plainly that Congress is the sole authority on spending, revenue and borrowing.
Perhaps you can tell us what the debt was in 2001 when the Arab jihad declared a global war on the United States.
Then, you can tell us what the debt was in January, 2007, when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the government.
You can also tell us how the annual deficit went from 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars in January, 2007, to the insane 1.3+ trillion dollars it is today with no plan to reduce it.

... well, dupe? What's your excuse?

And, you can answer this question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer that question.

Yes I voted for Obama and he won.

Not sure if your tiny brain recognizes winners.

You voted for Romney. I would guess denial and magic underwear are popular in your herd, correct?

Their only answer is we're going to pay for everything. I don't think they know how the world really works. Perhaps we should let them collapse the government. They'd find out in a real hurry how the world really works then.

You are still running away from this question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer that question.

What's the answer? Doesn't Obama have an answer for that?

I cannot help that you are too stupid to know what you are talking about.

You stupidly insisted that Marines were killed at Benghazi; they were private security guards and they were not former Marines, they were NAVY.

The USA CONTRACTS embassy security around the world and has for many years- with an increase during THE BUSH YEARS you stupid azz dolt.

You are a STUPID azz and you seem to think the purpose of the US Marines is to be security guards.

You have not served.

Obviously.

From the same source that funded our mindless excursion into Iraq to seek out non existent, imaginary WMD's.

You follow that, sonny?
