Jackson Herring: Serious Black: DeltaPunch: HotWingConspiracy: Call him whatever you like, Americans have had enough of "President" Fart, his fartunism, and his hepped-up fartnomics.

This is Fartbongonomics for you, people.

Oh, that's rich. I'm going to start using that on my conservatard Facebook friends and see if they like it as much as I do.

Go with "Presidebt", too


Yeah, that's pretty good too. I'll have to work it into my regular rotation of fake titles.

Bush increased the size of government, but he used that big government to give his cronies lots of money and personal favors, so that's freedom. Obama reduced the size of government, but he used that small government to help the poor and downtrodden, so that's socialism.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: theorellior: Philip Francis Queeg: He's already got the ball rolling on that one. His statement in support of same sex marriage rights was the first step in his plan to destroy the institution of marriage. Once that happens, the white women will all be his.

Except he's actually gay on the DL, so he's really gonna be coming for the white men.

He won't stop until he's made sweet, sweet love to the entire white race. With some flowers, and chocolates, and some Barry White, we will be unable to resist. Really, it's his desire to make sweet, sweet love to us that shows you just how much he hates us.

Did the government actually need to get bigger in order for Bush to give his cronies lots of money and personal favors? He couldn't have done that the way 0bama did? GIve out all that Solyndra money to his supporters?

I'd call growing the government through the creation of Medicare Part D and explicitly banning the government from negotiating with the pharmaceutical industry over drug prices a pretty big favor.

Romney has said he is going to massively increase defense which is the largest department of the government and the biggest discretionary spending. How do you think Romney is not going to spend more? He so far has only said he is going to cut taxes for the rich. He has not said at all about cutting anything specific he has talked about increasing spending to the largest discretionary spending category of the federal government.

All "communist" leaders have failed at communism, and therefore Obama is just as representative of the ideology as Stalin or Mao.

Romney will just focus on the unemployment rate, I'm sure. It's been higher than at any point during the Bush years.

Also, stats like these suck without context.

NFA FINALLY! Someone makes a point of what I've been saying for years. Bush has been touted as Mr. capitalism but in fact expanded government more than any president in history. Obama who has shrunk the size of government is called a socialist.

I've seen this talking point and it's stupid.

1. The number of people employed by the public sector depends almost entirely on economic conditions and tax revenues. Austerity will happen one way or another.

2. The vast majority of cuts in the public sector are at the state and local levels because the economy has been pathetic for the last 4 years. You can thank Obama for getting people like Scott Walker elected all over the country after his binge.

3. Socialism is defined by the percentage of the population dependant on some form of government entitlement. Right now it is the highest percentage in american history and climbing.

4. Socialism is defined by government involvement picking winners and losers in an economy. This is Obama's forte.

I don't know where you progressives come up with all this stuff. Last week you came out saying the president "grew the government less than Bush" and threw out some misleading percentage that gave W 100% credit for TARP (even though Obama wrote over half of it) and then completely ignored the baseline budgeting that Obama used to take advantage of that for the rest of his term.


The bottom line is if Barack Obama was even remotely fiscally responsible he would not have added more to the debt than any other president in history.(and it's not even close)

And not to mention they haven't been "successful at winning a war" since the 90s. If the military were represented by unions, the Republicans would probably be calling them complete failures that are a waste of money and should be privatized.

It depends on the party affiliation of the sitting president. If he's a Republican, it's 100%. If he's a Democrat, it's 0%.
