After RTFA I think that if Willard Mitt Romney is elected these conservative think tanks can happily go back to telling us the debt doesn't matter.

I did a search on the website for "national debt", 2300+hits 10pages(limit?), one blog post before 2009 on those 10 pages, and it was POSITIVE Link

Daraymann: You see, it all started in 2008 when the GOP had complete control of both houses. That makes it Bush's fault.

What do you expect Obama to do about it? He's only had four years.


Obama has had complete control of both houses for four years? I guess I don't understand our system of government at all anymore...

theknuckler_33: HeadLever: deadcrickets: So they agree that Bush increased the deficit for 8 years in a row?

Yeah, but the magnitude was a little different than what it is now.

In fairness, Bush was just a tad bit busy protecting us by fighting terrorists over there (instead of here!). What's Obama doing? Playing golf again or ordering Russian lobster on a bed of arugula for dinner?


I can't even explain how safe I feel since Bush captured all the WMD's in Iraq and killed Osama Bin Laden.

This bullshiat talking point again? It was the House's bill after they cut and pasted their regressive garbage into it. The Republicans in the Senate were too scared to vote for the Republican budget.

Tyrano Soros: o5iiawah: Tyrano Soros: I didn't realize Obama was writing budget bills for the past 5 years. I guess that frees up the House to focus on abortion.

Obama didn't pass a budget either during his first 2 years and sure as hell wont sign anything out of the house.

It is pretty sad when the Ryan budget, which balances in 30 years is the single greatest assault on seniors, minorities and other *insert victim group here*


a) Am I to understand that you believe it is Obama that is keeping a the House from passing a budget?
and
b) Are you actually defending that clusterfark of a Ryan budget? "After reviewing the different proposals, I didn't feel they offered an effective plan to balance the budget and provide the needed reform to preserve Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security," -Ed Whitfield (R-KY)

The standard late to the game thread shiat. Maybe if the House actually spent some time actually trying to build a budget consensus instead of voting along party lines for partisan "budgets" that will never pass you might have a point. Instead you're just trolling as usual and yes I bit.

So you're saying that a "budget" that consists of 10pages of "give me and my rich friends more money!" followed by 20 pages of "Democrats are poopy heads!" is not something serious? I don't know what to believe anymore.

Deficits matter as long as a black guy who plays on Team Donkey is in office. When a white guy who plays for Team Elephant takes office again, it will be back to "We proved deficits don't matter." Kinda like how healthcare mandates were awesome when white guys who played for Team Elephant proposed them, but horrible when black guy who plays for Team Donkey propose them.

In this case, I will gladly admit that I'm highly partisan. I wasn't when I was younger, but as the GOP has gone further and further off the deep end, I have found myself supporting the Democrats just out of self defense.

Look, arugula, mustard, mom jeans, bad throwing arm,death panels, birth certificate, time machines and pictures of witch doctors are simply not useful contributions to political discourse. People who claim he's confiscating guns and raising taxes are completely backwards and detached from reality. People who think that health insurance reform is equivalent to the holocaust are out of their minds.

There are reasons to critique Obama's policies, just as there are with any president, but the complaints that I hear from Fox, AM radio, Breitbart, Beck and the rest is just incoherent gibbering.

You want criticism of the President's policies to be taken seriously? How about you tell American Thinker that Obama has only been in office since January 2009, so he cannot logically be held responsible for 5 years worth of budgets.

If the right wing wasn't so incoherently outraged at Obama, shrieking about "secret Muslim infiltrators," shouting "you lie" during formal addresses, and other such juvenile nonsense, then maybe there could be room for some reasonable critiques of his policies. But when GOP party leaders are looking for bogymen and are reduced to selectively editing quotes to make up talking points, then there really isn't anything on that side of the aisle that deserves my respect.

If Republicans don't want to be laughed at, they need to reign in some of their weirdos, rather than electing them. I hope they do it soon, because we need at least one viable opposition party.

So far. About the only criticism that sticks to him is that he can't turn into a king and jumpstart the economy. Or that he spends too much money.

Wow, things cost money, especially on a federal scale. What an outrage!
