    Were you all unconscious during the Bush #43 presidency?

    • Ruby_Con

      Wow! that is pathological. Classic Bush derangement syndrome. So, because you think Bush was a terrible President, O-bomb-a should get a free pass on singlehandedly dismantling and destroying the greatest country in the world? You are one sick, low info freak.

      • Dissenter13a

        The Reagan and Bush policies dismantled our economy, repudiating the industrial policy devised by Alexander Hamilton and shipping a large chunk of our manufacturing base overseas, creating structural deficits for decades to come, at the behest of plutocrats who stood to profit from the changes.

        Obama’s only sin is that he has been unable to right the ship in the face of determkined Harkonnen–er, I mean Republican sabotage.

        • Sam

          The demoncraps have been in power since 2006 and this country has been on a nose dive to hell ever since. Obama is a Muslim and a Marxist, a pathological liar, a traitor, and an murderer. You don’t know anything because you haven’t looked.

            Stop deceiving!

            Sam, how do the Russians feel about the US?
            Pravda, the Russian newspaper, printed this in May, 2009,
            just 4 months into Obama’s presidency: I’ll just summarize it, but check it out on Snopes to confirm.

            1) America is rushing into Marxism with breath
            taking speed

            2) The population was “dumbed down,” through a politicalized and substandard educational system based on pop culture.

            3) They would call 911 if they didn’t get their McNuggets, but not call 991 if they lost a Constitutional right.

            4) Christianity is being abandoned

            5) Final collapse came with the election of Obama. In 3 months, his spending and printing money has set a world record.

            Pravda’s evaluation of the US is what you’ve read above, plus these bailouts, er, investments:

            The people who used taxpayers money for
            bankrolling their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of Billion dollars.It said that the American thieves make the Russian “oligarchs” look like street thieves.

          You might have a point there, dissent, but you need a pencil sharpener. Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE, moved American Factories overseas, losing American jobs, but replaced by foreigners. GE’s loss of labor: nil. Now, just for the topping, GE made $14 BILLION in profit in 2011. Amount of tax paid: $0. Obama was so impressed with Immelt that he made him the Czar of Jobs. Appropriate.

          Obama has only 1 sin: lying – to everyone, including his backers (unions were promised a delay on Obamacare being forced on them. He lied). BTW, lying includes cover ups, misinformation, or no information (transparency, remember?).

          You have to understand, dis, that what he says, and what he does, are opposites, ie:

          President Obama said in a May 2, 2011, address to the nation.
          “We will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed,” Obama said. What did he do with Benghazi?

          How about as a Senator in March, 2006:
          “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” What did he do with the debt he inherited? Almost tripled it.

          Those are facts on what he said. Get a pencil sharpener, dis

            Snopes, on Pravda, a Russian Newspaper, said a few things in April, 2009, about the US and Obama. At the end of the article, it said, “America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic (sic) and at worst Zimbabwe.” Good outlook for the US, huh? Well, maybe for you it is (nanny Country), but for anyone who loves this Country, it isn’t.

          • Dissenter13a

            As for his comments in March of 2006, I concur emphatically. When you go to war, you have to figure out how to pay for it. In WWII, we raised taxes across the board. In Vietnam, we didn’t. Old enough to remember stagflation? Wars are the price of empire, and why empires inevitably fall.

            In 2001, the Administration came up with the daft concept that the elective war in Iraq would pay for itself, and they were still under the absurd conceit that, in the words of Dick Cheney, “You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter.” I opposed “voodoo economics” back in 1980, and I turned out to be prescient. You may not like Big Gub’mint and our vast military behemoth, but you have to figure our a way to pay for them.

            Who caused our current deficit? George W. Bush and the Republicans, according to the strictly non-partisan CBO.

            Where I would quibble is in the pretension that leadership could fix the problem. This problem is structural; Boehner and his colleagues set out to intentionally sabotage the Obama presidency, according to language-master Frank Luntz:

            On the night of Barack Obama’s inauguration, a group of top GOP luminaries quietly gathered in a Washington steakhouse to lick their wounds and ultimately create the outline of a plan for how to deal with the incoming administration.

            “The room was filled. It was a who’s who of ranking members who had at one point been committee chairmen, or in the majority, who now wondered out loud whether they were in the permanent minority,” Frank Luntz, who organized the event, told FRONTLINE.

            Among them were Senate power brokers Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl and Tom Coburn, and conservative congressmen Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan.

            After three hours of strategizing, they decided they needed to fight Obama on everything. The new president had no idea what the Republicans were planning.


            Obama couldn’t do anything to fix the Bush mess because it requires a Congress that is willing to work for the good of the country, as opposed to their own personal power and perquisites. Kindly explain how that that was Obama’s fault.

          Dis, read the one below first, then this post.

          Pravda, a Russian Newspaper, said a few things in April, 2009, about the US and Obama (check it out on Snopes. Very interesting, but if you want, go down a few posts and you’ll get MY summary. I could be lying). At the end of the article, it said, “America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic (sic) and at worst Zimbabwe.” Good outlook for the US, huh? Well, maybe for you it is (nanny Country), but for anyone who loves this Country, it isn’t.

          • Dissenter13a

            Pravda?!? Almost as reliable as Faux News.

            First rule: consider the source.

      • seeymour kleerly

        It was Bush that left America two disastrous failed ground wars and an economy in FREEFALL! Were you hysterical then?

        • Ruby_Con

          Sure was. I Believe in being intellectually honest unlike you leftist drones.

          • seeymour kleerlyj

            Did you blame Bush and think he hated America? Did you write and protest loudly?
