Bush spent money, THEN BORROWED IT FROM CHINA, the deficit didn't reflect true spending. One budget was sent to Congress for approval, but, he spent money outside that budget, anyway. Where was your indignation about SPENDING? Even if you pretend that lower spending is good, you must admit, it's STILL DEFICIT SPENDING. You seemed to be bragging that Bush and the GOP only spent 350 billion over budget in '07, but, IT'S STILL DEFICIT SPENDING.

POSTED BY: REALITY CHECK | JANUARY 25, 2013, 2:46 PM Sorry Checkers, the Democrats are NOT "doing exactly" what I posted: " the GOP uses trickery and tyranny to rob votes at the state level". We saw it on election day with long lines and seven hour waits in states like Florida and Ohio. We watched Republican attempts to limit same-day voter registration, early registration and early voting, all based on unsupported fear stories about election fraud. Since then, the Florida Republicans ADMITTED voter suppression was the goal of their election laws !! And NOW we watch in disbelief as Republicans slip and slide to redistrict or gerrymander the electoral college. How a political party that "supports the Constitution" and says it abhors "Tyranny" can PURPOSEFULLY work to erode American citizens' voting rights is beyond reason. So sunlight IS the best disinfectant. According to November's post election poll by the MacArthur Foundation, 88% of Americans support national standards for voting, including the hours polls are open, who is eligible to vote, and the design of ballots. We will all be watching if Republicans in Congress once again obstruct this proposed legislation. “Let’s hear your passionate criticism of Democrats doing exactly what you claim.”

Obamacare is causing health premiums to INCREASE, not decrease as promised.... The Dems insistence to increase taxes on small-business-owners will mean less jobs for the middle-class as well...... the middle-class would be a LOT better off without all the Democrat meddling!!!! tmferretti | January 25, 2013, 2:33 pm —- Gone for a while… somebody has to work to pay the taxes to support you!! ——— This post of yours is fantasy!! —— The Democrat Party has HURT the middle-class in the last four years… not helped them!!!! ——- Middle class income has dropped during the Obama Administration… Just the top-FIVE Obamacare taxes will cost taxpayers a whopping $1 TRILLION over 10 years… The Democrats FOUGHT the Bush tax cuts, including tax cuts for the middle class… The Dems insisted on making the Bush tax cuts have a “sunset clause”… This administration will not even discuss spending cuts (which 75% want), so the economy is suffering… add the “stimulus” debt on the middle-class’s children…. the “war on coal” means higher electric costs for the middle class…. this administration’s legislation stymies business growth, so no jobs for those middle-class people unemployed… this administration has increased FED holdings of US debt by 255%, hurting the dollar so the middle class dollar buys less…..

I don't think there are many of us who give a damn whether Manti Te'o had a fantasy girl friend or not. If anyone is in doubt that the media is a major factor in the dumbing down of America, they need to watch CNN, where 80% of the Situation Room time and energy is devoted to whether Teo's girl friend was real or a figment of his imagination. No laws have been broken and it's all about some stupid young pranksters who should be spanked. Give us all a break and let this story die and be debated in a locker room somewhere.
