I thought it was just repeating "Benghazi" over and over until we all agreed that the president should be impeached just to shut them up for two minutes. And then a Republican can become president because that's totally how succession works. Oh, and "targeted" with regards to the IRS thing.

Hell Fire.....the first year the president was in office the annual interest on the Reagan/Bushes debt was almost half a trillion dollars. Where were you deficit hawks when Reagan was quadrupling the debt and then Bush43 doubling it again? You didn't think foreign banks were loaning us all those trillions because they liked us did you?

I hate to burst your bubble, but the government does not borrow in the conventional sense. It allows a market for exchange of excess dollars in return for a guaranteed rate of return...

No...you must make an effort to get "yours." No one likes a dead beat.

Or you can be a [kitty] with weak character, and let Mommy Government hold your hand, like the child you want to be. Are you a [kitty]?

Third is "We Don't have To Worry About 47% Of Americans"
Is this like Obama turning to John McCain and gloating, "I won the election?"

Fourth is, "If You Live Here, Don't Get Sick"
Lie. ...and you should feel bad (or ignorant)

Republican piss me off because they only want to cut spending when they are out of power and spend more than the Democrats when they are in power. Their motto is "do as I say not as I do."

This may be true, but unfortunately there's very little between the two parties, when you're talking about politicians.

Is this why the two parties agree on very little in the House? At least A. Lincoln and S. Houston gave us a chance to do this right now.

Who runs the House and holds the pursestrings for government?

Who routinely filibusters the Senate, including bills and ideas formerly pushed by Repubs?

Call it anything you wish. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a rose by any other name is yet as sweet.

Screw god.....I'm 79 years old and the old Jewish bastard has never done anything for me. What would he do if the dry cleaners which clean those gowns went out of business? I won't even mention gossimer wings and pearly gates. Well.....I guess I did.

A fairy tale is a fairy tale forever.

I hope there is a hell......it will give me the opportunity to meet my old friends and have a party.

I think of it more like...

I worked for mine and, By God, you can work for yours, too.

You got a problem with that?

Very few have ever worked harder than I did and I've been retired for 20 years.

My dad got his first regular job on the WPA. He drew $3.60 a week before the war started. Lucky people never need any help in their lives but most do. Right now in the Reagan/Bushes aftermath a whole lot more need help than ever before. Have you people ever stopped to think that George W. Bush assumed an unemployment rate of 4.3%, cut tax rates for the wealthy twice, started two wars, one totally unnecessary, doubled the national debt, wrecked the economy, gave the biggest banks in the world nearly a trillion dollars and left the country bleeding off 750,000 jobs a month. Why the hell don't you want to talk about that?

Do you have this crap permanently stored on your clipboard somewhere for fast cutting and pasting every time you're stumped? It's like you don't have anything but hyperbole and talking points to post.

I'm not stumped.......very few times in my life have I been stumped. Why don't you elitist, bible thumping right wing pricks ever talk about this:

"Right now in the Reagan/Bushes aftermath a whole lot more need help than ever before. Have you people ever stopped to think that George W. Bush assumed an unemployment rate of 4.3%, cut tax rates for the wealthy twice, started two wars, one totally unnecessary, doubled the national debt, wrecked the economy, gave the biggest banks in the world nearly a trillion dollars and left the country bleeding off 750,000 jobs a month."

I have some info for you. As long as you watch Fox News you will remain totally ignorant to facts. Roger Aisles and his hired liars will never give you that....they're allergic to the truth.

Your'e severely confused and your pathetically almost 5 years in still blaming Obama's failure on Bush.

The thing that I think your'e refering too ( digging out from under ) is the Collapse of the Democrat Mandated Sub-Prime Bubble.

It's ridiculous because there is no excuse for you being absolutely ignorant about what happened under Bush.

There is no good reason for you to ignore Bush's MULTIPLE attempts over 8 years to try and enact strict regulatory control over the Corrupt and Democrat run Fannie and Freddie.

For you to ignore Fannie's 2004 Regulator warning Democrats about the coming Collapse and then Ignore the Democrats response. It was to lie in front of Republican Chaired Committee's as Politicians like Barney Frank and Maxine Waters told investigators the GSEs were in good fiscal health.

Or for you to ignore the fact that by 2008 Fannie and Freddie held the vast majority of ALL Sub-Prime loans or Mortgage Backed Securities backed by Sub-Prime loans.

5 TRILLIONin crap toxic debt in 2008 got transfered from Fannie and Freddies books to the United States Treasury's books and as we speak our Central Bank is buying up hundreds of bilkions of Fannie's Toxic Debt.

So before you open your mouth next time why don't you educate yourself.

If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it.

We have to pass it to find out what's in it.

It's a 3 letter word J-O-B-S.

The police acted stupidly.

Coal is making us sick.

Tourists smell.

They've already got the health programs advanced over what they were. My mom has alzheimers and recently Medicare paid for a specialist to come in once a week for therapy and allowed enough money for my youngest brother, who she has been living with since 2002, to install a handicapped wheelchair ramp up to the entrance to her room. She will turn 101 tomorrow. If the Republicans had been in charge they would already put her on the nose of a satellite rocket and put her in orbit. They've got oil wars to fund and no money to waste.

You obviously don't pay attention to the doings of the House or refuse to acknowledge them. That's a nicer way for me to speak than what cons do to me. Food stamps? Border security? Pork-barrel defense not asked for? Corporate welfare to their donors such as in the farm bill. The House Repub pursestring control is infinite!
