How easliy we forget.  Bush entered office with a 1 trillion dollar surplus left by a leftist, president.  After 1 year, after his (Bush's) tax cuts, it was nearing a 1 trillion dollar deficit (July 2001).  Frankly, I don't think the republican policy of tax cuts, deregulation, and trickle down economics worked very well.  Am I alone in that?  It appears went just came out of a FAILED presidency.  Am I alone in that too?

Wait a minute....wasn't that 1 trillion "projected" also? And was not the internet bubble already "bursting" onto the scene, followed by 9/11?

Compare that to the projected 7 trillion projection for Obama in just 60 days, and what did it do thus far? Did it fix health care...No! Fix Social Security.....No! He gave it away. And nobody yet has seen their house NOT foreclose!

4 bailouts of AIG and counting. a 3.7 trillion budget by Obama and a recent bill passed (He said he would VETO....LIAR!) full of pork and earmarks.

This country should do what China did.....and drag the likes of Barney out behind the woodshed and spend a 10 cent bullet in correcting the problem.

We now have Nancy "I want a bigger Jet" Pelosi. Ted "the drunken murderer" Kennedy. And Barney "Free mortgages to all" Frank.

First 450 Billion was not even accounted for and went right into the coffers of the likes of ACORN.

Trillions spent....and no results thus far. Our debt will drag on this economy for years. Our taxes will explode in the years to come, from electric fees, to gas prices, as his administration will look to tax everything they can. They are trying to pass an increase of 10 cents per gallon in taxes even as we chat.

And don't bet your 401K will recover anytime soon. Obama did more damage than if he would of just left things play out themselves.

60 Days....and I would not be dissing anyone, while Obama has done what he has done. he's not done anything on a positive note. Nothing....except set this country back years in progress. he speaks the need to change this or that, but thus far nothing but a feeding trough as usual.

i think you are talking about debt, not deficit.  they are not the same.

i do no blame presidents for recessions.  clinton was not to blame for the recession that bush inherited.  bush i not to blame for the recession that obama inherited.  it is a historical fact that the recessions that have ended the fastest have come after tax cuts.  kennedy, reagan, bush, and clinton, used tax cuts to bring about growth.  

the way to calculate the impact of debt is by the % of GDP it takes up.  the % of GDP taken by the debt under bush was one of the lowest.  the reason is that after the recession and 9/11 we experienced unprecedented growth which led to unprecedented revenue.  yes, the republican congress was irresponsible with spending.  that's part of the reason they are out.  however, the benefits of tax cuts, especially cuts like capitol gains tax cuts that encourage business to expand, are proven.

generally, a president can not be blamed for recession because it's market forces that cause the ups and downs of any economy.  what they can be blamed for (or credited with) is the response.

mortgage meltdown was Carters fault

don't know where you heard that.  it actually was from lending policies forced on the banks by franks and dodd under clinton.  i remember when they did it, and i remember people saying that this is what would happen.  when bush tried to get congress to take a look at fannie and freddy, franks and co. told him that all was well.  no need to change anything.  if you want to lay this in anyones lap.  you can blame barney and his friends.

Do you remember when the Bush brothers and Burt Lance were caught in the first S and L scandel?   Funny how we had another one when one of the brothers was president???   The Rep. party likes big money and they do all they can to get it regardless of their supposed "morals".  Dem. have bad points too.  I don't vote by party, and I don't understand why others do either!

the difference is that the Rep. party is open about it, while the Dem. party does the same thing but then says soothing words about saving the middle class and saving the environment and saving the poor children and puppies.  grin

I vote by party line only because I vote the lesser of two evils.

You always know things can't be good when one side, who happens to be in power, speaks down the other side, instead of saying what good things they are doing... grin

Can't wait for another 3 years, 10 months of this... rolleyes

I just have to put my oar in the water about this.  I'll climb on my   soapbox  now.

.....to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign or domestic.......

That's part of the Oath of Office of the President of the United States.  Any American citizen, native born or naturalized, Politician, President, or Joe the Plumber, who attempts to suppress, usurp, or eliminate rights granted under the Constitution of the United States is a domestic enemy.

Enacting limits or legislating confiscatory powers, however justified, to any one of the Bill of Rights or any of the other amendments, is an act against the Constitution and if enacted by the President or any other elected US Official is a violation of his/their oath of office.  That means misfeasance or malfeasance of office.  Those are Impeachable offenses.

The Declaration of Independence, our 1st founding document, specifically states that the people have the power to correct the unlawful and grievous actions of our elected officials, by martial means if necessary.  That is a power, a birthright, upon which this country and our Constitution are based.

I do not advocate the overthrow of our government but our elected officials must be made aware of how the majority of Americans (The Silent Majority {unfortunately}) feel about the actions they are taking and reminded of the limit of governmental powers decreed and imposed by said Constitution.  I believe in voicing my opinions as granted under article 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America.  I believe in defending my country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.  When I entered into Military Service I took an oath very much like the ones the President and other Elected and Appointed officials of the United States swear to upon taking office.  I believe it is my duty, as a native born American Citizen, to fullfill, to the best of my ability, that oath until my dying day.  It is an oath that did not end upon my honorable discharged from military service, it is duty I was born with under, and by the authority of the Constitution of the United States of America.

To do less, to standby idly, to accept or support abuse of the principals upon which this nation was founded when the very fabric of my country is in danger is treasonous.  That is why my signature line includes the statement: Apathy is The greatest danger to our society, vote in every election!  Voting is not only our right it is our duty, it is what is necessary to avoid the need to correct the errors of government through martial action.  If you have failed to exercise that right, you are, in part responsible for the misconduct of our officials.  Failure to vote is Seditious by omission. 

Voting is the preferred way to correct government. If you chose to do nothing, you deserve what you get.  But those who have exercised their right to vote do not deserve, nor want, the results of apathy.

Based upon the actions of Barak Hussien Obama  since assuming the office of President of the United States of America, I believe that he is in violation of his oath of office.  This belief extends to his appointees.  It is my intent to attempt to change this through the lawful exercise of my Constitutional Rights and through the empowerment and education of the electorate. 

If you are willing to accept misconduct and/or usurpation of your rights you know where you stand from my viewpoint.

History Lesson: What is going on in this country, at this moment, under the guise of a national emergency is a parallel to what occurred during the 1930's in Germany and look where that took the world.

Don't forget, Obama claims to be a constitutional scholar, who has been quoted as saying he chafes under the constraints of The Constitution.  Of course he does!  It is written to prevent him from doing what he's trying to do anyway.  The guy is a dangerous puppet of the ultra-liberal left.  I'm hoping this is becoming more and more apparent to more and more people, but will they do anything about it?  This is exactly what I was afraid of.  The Bush Haters were so blind with their hatred they would have elected Bozo the Clown as long as he had a D after his name.  And now we're stuck with someone much worse than Bozo.  rolleyes

I also think everyone one, including left and right can say what they want. But that is a far cry from supporting them...  Wink  When they do things I disagree with, I hope they fail. I don't support blindly.

6 months ago....depending on who you read, Bush had a 1.6 to 2.8 trillion dollar deficit. Within 60 days, that went to 9.2 trillion deficit....and those same bashers of Bush for this issue are not even saying a word.

The world knows their economy is connected to ours. And they are starting to shout loudly that spending your way to wealth, and bankrupting your country for whatever the reason, is not the way to go.





I totally agree.  However both of those deficits are projections which factor in future revenues as well as expenses.  Obviously, all of those projections have changed in light of the "economic event" we're experiencing. 

I'm as concerned about those things as anyone.  I've just seen my retirement plans evaporate to the tune of about 2 years worth of income.  I'd like for that to come back some day.



Do you truly believe these projections will not come to fruition. The left will not chance upseting thier voting block. The left needs the welfare state to get them elected. This way when all these potential voters are inline for what is "rightfully" theirs, there will be the same leftist leaders telling them look what i have done for you remember me when you head to the polls in the busses I supplied for you. Every nickel the current administration has promised will be pulled from my pocket and redistributed for the next 3 years and 10 months at a minimum.

that's my .0075 0r whats left of my .02

Hmmm...
I just dont know what to make of any of this.
I dont trust any of the politicians any more.
 Like I told my son the other day.....Tons of people can tell you what the problem is..These people are a dime a dozen. But, If only one out of a hundred had a solution( or out of a thousand) That in itself would be a miracle.
 I think Banks and Govt. should be able to say "NO" to other peoples requests...We should be starting with our own kids....Make people save money for what they want instead of everything being on credit (oh, I'm not pointing fingers by any means....I use my lowes card and home depot card and VISA WAY MORE often than I should...I'm just lucky that I can make the payments on time)...But, I used to say that If DEBT was ok for our country, it was good enough for me too!
Well,...Thats all.....
your friend,
john
