He's finally admitting...
Obama-fan Commenters, be sure to aim your venom at Jack Cafferty. After all, he said it. Not me.
Well said, watched the video, in my own opinion the democrat party, especially speaker of the house and the president, have very little integrity, or honor.
Wow, CNN, the Liberal biased news network? You right wingnuts crack me up. Imagine a news network having unbiased opinions. When it is a hit piece against Dems, they are the greatest network in the world. Maybe we can find some unbiased reporting or commentary on Fox. Not!!!
And I would expect nothing less from you bryan. When can we expect a hit piece on Repubs? Fair and balanced right? Yeah right.
Repubs have nothing, nada, zilch.
Apparently you only have one channel, I am going to leave you my right wing nut, so your level of understanding will increase significantly.
redwhite, what didn't I understand? Oh, you are a Liberal Dem? Really? Or maybe a Centrist?
bryan, please stop your 5th grade replys. It is not a secret Fox news viewers consider all other news networks the "liberal biased media". "The fox news network has nothing to do with Jack Cafferty's opinion". Really? Grow up.
Repubs have nothing, absolutely nothing, nada, zilch.
@ Mr. Dubois:
I agree with bs, how dare you expose the odor of liberal hypocrisy! As is proper, the overwhelming stench of their lies should be covered up with an air freshener combining supreme ignorance and blind trust.
This broadcast from June helps to demonstrate what has been widely known for some time: Mr. Obama and his merry band of socialists are rapidly losing the support of the Independent voter.
The Independent voter helped to give the Dems control of Congress in 2006 and they helped to put Mr. Obama’s tush in the WH.
We’re Americans! We perfected the concept of fast food! If you don’t perform in short order – out-you-go!
Still, statistically over 90% of Congressional incumbents win re-election. We need a Hercules to clean the Washington version of the Augean Stables.
Keep stirring the pot Mr. Dubois, I’m enjoying the fare.
Mr. Sanders and you – that should be “fair and balanced” for ol’ bs.
Where has Mr. Sander's been?
winnie, where did I say not to play it? Where did I say to "cover it up"?
Repubs have absolutely nothing, nada, zilch.
I am not a democrat, I can still tell the truth, I don't have to lie, I have integrity, I have honor and I served my country in the United States army, So people like you can be stupid and ignorant as you feel is necessary.
Unfortunately you have a right to think and feel the way that you think is necessary, I do not necessarily agree with you but you have a right to feel the way you would like without spreading your rhetoric around like normal democrats do.
What rhetoric did I "spread around". People like you like to hit and run. Explain yourself.
Repubs have absolutely nothing, nada, zilch
Moderators have removed this comment because it contained personal attacks.
As soon as you learn how to read a newspaper and different news broadcasts, and the journalism on the Internet or newspapers, you honestly see that I do not spread rhetoric. I tell it exactly like it is, first of all when the stimulus bill was passed our president said that the unemployment rate would not exceed 8%, interesting in some places it is 11%. When the speaker of the house said that she was going to clean out the swamp and remove people without integrity and honesty, has done nothing, we have Tony Rangel, Maxine Waters,and any number of other democrats that are still there and have not been removed. By the way they are being investigated. When it comes to the healthcare bill over 2000 pages was not completely read by the democrats and some republicans and it was passed by democrat majority, interesting, our president said that GetMo would be closed by the end of the year hasn't happened. The detainees at GETMO have not been prosecuted yet. The horizon oil disaster was blamed on BP the problem with that is the administration has an oversight committee, I wonder what they were doing when they were supposed to be inspecting the oil rigs. We had many other countries that were willing to send their ships in to help with the oil cleanup. For some reason they were not allowed to come in for approximately one month. I could probably keep going on and on with facts. Probably you should drink the orange juice and learn how to think, analyze, and distinguish between the untruths and integrity.

Ya gotta love Jack Cafferty. He finally saw the light.
I absolutely agree with 90% of what you said, the problem isn't the politicians, democrat or republican the problem is the average American citizen, cannot see the forest for the trees, if Americans would wake up and do a little research on the candidates that they are going to support the situation would be totally different than it is now.
I really do not disagree with you, it boils down to one thing the American people are ignorant, if they would stop and think and vote with the integrity we would not be discussing his issues at this time.
Both parties have major issues, it seems like the only ones that care are you and I.

Sarah the problem with your analogy is Pelosi and Obama are still in power as are the other liberals under indictment right now to name one, Charlie Rengel. Nixon is dead and Gingrich is no longer in public service. Care to try again?
What does being dead or not in office have anything to do with the ethics attributed to a person actions? Nixon wasn't involved in his misdeeds from the casket. Gingrich was held responsible for his actions when he WAS in public service!
Oh, you mentioned Charlie Rangel, how about Spiro Agnew?
Why is it hard to see that all politicians have questionable ethics? Just another Republican/Conservative trying to twist facts!
Yea you conservatives! The R's are terrible! They lie about cheating on their wife while in the White House (Slick Willie was a D so shoots that argument down). They hide money they scammed in their freezer (oh wait, that was a D) or use their influence to help their husband's bank (Darn, D again), cheat on their taxes (Shucks Rangel is a D too). And don't forget that the last time the House had to hold a trial was for an R right? (Oh crap, Trafficant was a D!)
Just cuz Sarah has to go back a couple decades to find R's that were corrupt doesn't mean there aren't any now!
And don't forget you repub's are so corrupt that a county had to throw out it's entire form of government and start over!! Oh wait, Dimora and Russo are D's
Well that kills that theory! It is the D's that are a bunch of thieves and liars
Though a Repub, Mr. Nixon governed as a liberal.
A large dose of “fly-over country” mentality is desperately needed in D.C.
The democrates are out of control. It has become a given to lie, cheat, deceive, etc. Their is so much of it going around even on the local level that voters become tefloned and think is it a normal state. I am for the two term and out to cleanse ourselves from the older ones being up there so long that they think they can do anything and no one dare question them their integrity, honesty, or ethics. The only way to cleanse it is to rotate them out every few years so they don't obtain so much power.
OK right wingnut conservative Repub nation, tell me again what Rangel and Waters were CONVICTED of?

bs..rangel "forgot" for 15+ years to report income from his rental properties as well being associated with less than honest accounting people for multiple charities.
Don't have to go back that far pete, Taft, Senator Ensign, Gov. Sanford, Tom Delay. The list is endless.
brutus, I think you have to scratch Tom Delay from your list as the charges have been dropped
mikel, what was he convicted of?
You right wingnut conservative Repubs act like Cafferty is a Liberal. ROFLMAO!
You guys got nothing, nada, zilch.
Lester Crawford, a former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to an October 17, 2006, Associated Press article, Crawford "abruptly resigned" from the FDA in September 2005 and pleaded guilty to charges of "conflict of interest and false reporting of information about stocks he owned in food, beverage and medical device companies he was in charge of regulating" in October 2006. According to the AP article, "[b]eginning in 2002, Crawford filed seven incorrect financial reports with a government ethics office and Congress, leading to the charges."
Brian J. Doyle, former deputy press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security. OnSeptember 19, 2006, Doyle "pleaded no contest to seven counts of using a computer to seduce a child and 16 counts of transmitting harmful material to a minor," according to The Ledger of Lakeland, Florida.
Claude A. Allen, former assistant to the president for domestic policy. Allen resigned in February 2006 after a January 2006 police investigation concerning multiple fraudulent returns to a Target store in Gaithersburg, Maryland. On August 4, 2006, Allen pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor theft.
David H. Safavian, a former chief of staff of the General Services Administration. Safavian was found guilty of lying and obstructing justice in June 2006. According to a June 21, 2006, article inThe Washington Post, Safavian resigned "days before" his September 2005 arrest. The Postadded that he "was convicted in U.S. District Court ... of covering up his many efforts to assist [disgraced Republican lobbyist Jack] Abramoff in acquiring two properties controlled by the GSA, and also of concealing facts about a lavish weeklong golf trip he took with Abramoff to Scotland and London in the summer of 2002."
John T. Korsmo, former chairman of the Federal Housing Finance Board. On April 7, 2005, Korsmo "pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, which oversees the Finance Board, and the Inspector General for the Finance Board." The Senate committee and inspector general were investigating Korsmo's participation in an October 2002 congressional fundraising event.
This is breaking news??? This clip was from January! Chung Lee sure hopes we continue this trip back and maybe we can take a look at some of the missteps and scandals during the Bush Administration. Mission accomplished. As far as not being transparent, Obama initially tried to but the Republican misinformation campaign and the disruption at the town halls made it impossible to do it the way he wanted.
All the more reason to push for TERM LIMITS.
bs..i know that he has not yet been convicted in a court of law but has been censured by his own dem stormtroopers as well as been asked to go away with dignity from your own savior, obamass!. here it is again for your reading pleasure.

WASHINGTON -- Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel was hit yesterday with another ethics complaint, accusing him of steering millions of taxpayer dollars to his "cronies" at a politically connected nonprofit -- as first reported by The Post.
The complaint by the National Legal and Policy Center asked for an investigation of the "questionable taxpayer funding" Rangel helped secure for financially unstable Alianza Dominicana to build its new $19 million headquarters.
The complaint also pointed to apparent political payoffs Rangel got from the group's supporters -- including Executive Director Moises Perez, who publicly defended Rangel against ethics complaints in November 2009, just a month after the House passed a Rangel-sponsored $250,000 earmark for the nonprofit.
"Beneath the favoritism which is shown in Rep. Rangel's support of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to the group . . . there is a mosaic of cronyism which includes tens of thousands of dollars in political donations to Rangel's political committees by the nonprofit's major supporters, officers, and individuals whose firms are directly involved in building and financing of the group's new headquarters," the complaint said.
Rangel, who last month was charged with 13 ethics violations, said he shouldn't have to defend the nonprofit's community-development work.
"It's a rough thing in life where someone makes an allegation and if you say there's just no basis to it then you are defending," he said. "Defense sounds like there's something wrong here and you're supporting something wrong."
A two-year House ethics probe found a "pattern" of rule-breaking by Rangel, including a failure to report $1.7 million in personal assets over the years, not paying taxes on income from a Dominican villa, and using his office to raise money for a center named for himself at CCNY.
Rangel is expected to face a rare House ethics-committee trial next month.

The House of Representatives decided on Thursday afternoon to table, by a vote of 254 to 138, a Republican resolution to censure Representative Charles B. Rangel
Yes Chung Lee how true!
To be a Teabagger, one should have served America.
It always amazes me how most against Obama proclaim their love for America while they get subsidized in the form of corporate breaks , farm handouts, business loans & more.
Yet when someone who has worked & paid their fair share into the system, the Teabaggers rail against that. Can't have it both ways folks..
You mean the tax breaks and corporate give-aways that Obama, Reid, and Pelosi FAILED to do away with during the almost YEAR they had a lock on the legistlive powers of this country?
Pete you missed my point. Terry Boose (our elected official in Huron County ) admitted after some prodding that he got farm $$ for US the people. (Norwalk Reflector's blog)
Isn't Terry Boose one of the Teabaggers? Did Terry Boose have migrants working on his farm?
If so, did he pay for their medical care, busing, etc?
Or did we the people? hmm..
Check on that & share the truth.
note the date of your post there bs. last time i checked august 10, 2010 came after july 31, 2008!
Pete >>>>>what happened?
Had a meeting. Sorry I cannot sit here all day
Terry Boose means nothing to me. He is a useless politician like the rest. But what bugs me is when the Corporate Welfare and Tax Break bull is drug out as to blame the R's, I have to ask why the D's did nothing, absolutely nothing at all, to correct it in the almost year they had control of all three parts of the legislative process.
Maybe you can explain why the Democrats failed the American Worker? All I get from the others on here that like to drag that out is the run-around.
Way to go Jack!!!!! I sure hope no body scares you off of CNN like they did Lou Dobbs. Apparently his family was threatened if he didn't lay off some of the issues he was really pounding on.
Pete my point is this - ALL of them seem 2be dirty - some just more than others.
I blame most of M. Like to think there are a few good elected officials around, thopugh it is causing me grief to come up with some.
To be sure both the Dems & the GOPs aren't worth much. I just had to use Terry Boose to validate my point that all leaders seem to want THEIR agenda 1rst, not what is best the for the people they are supposed 2SERVE.
I cannot stand either party. They all lie and cheat and steal as much as they can. And take special interest money to further their own agenda, which is seldom what is best for the average person in this country
It is sad when one has to vote based on what effect it will have on the make-up of congress. I am not a fan of the R's, but will do my best to help them take back the House. Legislative Gridlock is better than when it is all one sided.
And the point of the Tax Breaks really fires me up. It is now used as purely a political tool by the D's. They could have fixed it but decided it was better to use it for a blame tool. And in the mean time factories continue to shut down by the week.
So when in doubt, go back to the party who started the flood of jobs out of the country? In your spare time look up the bills that the House has passed and are waiting for the Senate. They are pending in the Senate because not one, not even one Repub will vote for them. So before you say again the Dems aren't doing anything, research the facts.
They have failed, and miserably so. They had 11 months to fix this when they coulda passed a bill to make even Tuesday's "Wear Sumpting Purple Day" and they chose not to. And you just demonstrated why: So they could use it for cannon fodder in the upcoming election.
Democrats = Sold out the American Worker for politcal gain
So the LIBERAL news agency of CNN is finally turning on the boy president? How can this be??? They have been in the "tank" for socialist 0bama for over two YEARS and NOW they decide to turn on him? I am sure Jack Cafferty will have sanctions placed upon him for finally reporting the TRUTH. You liberal freaks don't believe in the TRUTH. It is NOT in your dictionary. I have not watched CNN, network TV news, MS-NBC or any of the others because there is NO truth to any of them. Besides that, you liberals are not watching either because of the basement ratings of all of them. GO Fox News!! Ha! Ha! Things are NOT looking good for all you freeloader, entitled, special, privileged liberals. Be afraid this Nov., be very afraid. The worm is definitely turning for YOU! Boo, hoo, hoo! Ha! Ha!
Then how could they pass the health care fiasco? Didn't seem to have an issue with that
Yet they failed to bring forth and pass the bill considered to be the most important thing to save American Jobs? Explain how that could be. Spin it anyway you want. They had 11 months and chose to do nothing to help the average worker. All for political gain.
We do need to remember this: prior to elections Obama stated we would get out of Iraq, McCain had no real timeline.
Both McCain & Obama stated we would be in Afganistan. Besides human lives, wars are EXPENSIVE.
Pete come on---drug tested? How about Rush ? Or W and the cocaine wrecked Pontiac Firebird of his?
I didn't make that statement, Obie's own Press Sec did. I just find it rather amusing!
This article should been titled" rats jumping from obamanic" the tip of the iceberg will be struck on election day Nov. 2, 2010 and the ship will sink November 2012. I rather be a "right wing wingnut" than the limp wristed left who doesn't have the stones.
Yeah, look at all those bills that haven't cleared the Senate. One of them being cap-n-trade, and all I can say is THANK GOD!!
Obama promised to stop the job hemorrhage, yet he and his cronies in Congress would put the final nail in the coffin of our nation's industrial base. Now THAT'S hypocricy.
For this nation to survive, we have to be able to make things...BESIDES windmills and solar panels. Yes, the GOP's trade policies have hurt us badly, but this is every bit as bad, if not worse.
One thing is clear. NEITHER party should have absolute control. The right will steer us into one set of rocks; the Bush-lite years proved that. The left will steer us into a different set of rocks; Obama & Co. have proven that.
I'm voting to give Congress back to the GOP, not because I agree with all of their policies, but to balance the gov't before it's too late.
I'm voting to give Congress back to the GOP, not because I agree with all of their policies, but to balance the gov't before it's too late
Eggsackery how I feel Stormy. As I have said before, it is sad that I must choose who to vote for based on how to lessen the damage caused by one party being in control.
Oh, and as far as blaming all the stuff on R's for the trade imbalance, it was Clinton that pushed for Normalized relations with China. 73 Democrats in the House voted for it, and it passed the Senate by a vote of 83 to 15. Even Kennedy and Kerry in the Senate voted for it. There were more R's voting against it in the Senate than there were Republicans. So who's fault is it really?
Sarah, we can go back to Washington and find skeletons in the closet. What we need to be concerned with are those that are currently in office and get rid of them. I mean I can name Byrd (grand dragon of the KKK) and he was permitted in there until death. Then there is Ted Kennedy, what did dear old Ted do? Oh my that's right, he drove a gal off a bridge and left her to die there. Got away with murder that guy did. See this game can go on all day long, however what is important is the here and the now. I say get the crooks and the bums out of DC. Let the past stand on it's own and let history teach us a lesson if we are willing to learn.
Kurt I don't recall W smashing a car while president due to cocaine useage, and it certainly wouldn't have been a firebird. It would have been a limo.
ALL politicians are liars and crooks or they wouldn't be in politics..just some worse than others. I think the last decent one may have been Lincoln.
Yesterday Mr. Predictable said: It's Bush's fault.
40 million people get food stamps
10 million receive unemployment insurance
More than 4.4 million people are on welfare
"The federal price tag for Medicaid has jumped 36% in two years, to $273 billion. Jobless benefits have soared from $43 billion to $160 billion. The food stamps program has risen 80%, to $70 billion. Welfare is up 24%, to $22 billion. Taken together, they cost more than Medicare.”
From the numbers, doesn’t it look like the Incompetent-in-Chief wants as many people dependent on the govt. for their health and welfare as possible? Makes ‘em good Democrats.
To find a truly ethical president, ya probably gotta go back to the man that didn’t want the job – Washington.
Pete you stated" Terry Booose means nothing to me. " He should . He is an elected official. Please...get involved locally.
Some did, & I was fortunate to be among them. We got OUR local elected employee to do the will of the people in a small way. These blogs are useful for said actions.
Please do more than talk like another blogger that posted before me.
Terry Boose isn't MY Rep, hence why he isn't my primary focus
Dennis Murray is. And I am doing everything I can to help get him the boot. Gonne help Mr Krabill any way I can
And for the first time I have sent a check to a political campaign. Gonna see if I can help get our Pork Queen Marcy some unemployment compensation!
So what you are saying is that Lincoln was a true Repub? Finally coming around eh winnie?
I am with you Pete. Give Murray the BOOT. We need new politicians that believe they are NOT Santa Claus and just give tax dollars away like candy. They all want to be famous as the most "pork" riddled people so they can secure liberal freeloader votes. ENOUGH. We are out of money. The county is broke, the state is broke and so is the federal government. Too bad this liberal state cannot print it's own money. Then you crybaby liberal freaks would be in heaven. Ha! Ha!

Yet another lib jumpung ship Obamacrap.
Via The Hill, former DNC chairman and Vermont governor Howard Dean ripped into the Obama White House this morning on CNN and said that the Democrats' fate in the midterm elections rests on Obama's shoulders. Asked about Obama's bad poll numbers, Dean said:
I think that we are in tough times in America. We have got an unemployment rate that's over 9 percent. We have got, you know, people who are still making a zillion dollars on Wall Street while the average person thinks that they are doing great, and how come, since they were the ones that screwed up the economy, we're not -- we're where we are. There's a lot of resentment. It's a tough time.
I have lived long enough to know that a most of the time in Politics you can't believe what you read but I know two things for sure:
1) I have witnessed no tranparency and have quit watching for it on CNN. It doesn't exsist.
2) Now the Democratic Reps. are saying the Repubs won't negotiate a couple main points that were in the Health Care Bill. I, and millions more, begged them to negotiate before they voted on the billand they would have no part of listening. If they didn't listen when we were begging them to listen what is my alternative??? Vote them out and get a person that will listen.
After a year and a half of no Repub ideas it was time to move on.
brutie I am glad you will soon get the meds you must really need "no ideas" Obamacrap, Queen Nancy and dirty Harry refuse to even consider any thing that blocks their socialist agenda, knowing full well that their time is limited, Nov.2, 2010 Independence Day.
democraps have unlimited debt and higher taxes.
sam, if you know what the Repub plan is you might want to let congressman Bonehead know, because even he doesn't know yet.
Since the Unemployment Rate is expected to rise in August and Construction Spending dropped TWICE as much as forecast to a ten year low, the "nothing, nada, zilch" the Republican's have is bound to be a whole heck of a lot better than the "sumptin" the Democrats have!
Give me nothing over what the Democrats have given us any day!!!!!!!!!!!
brutie must be tough what with the USS Obamacrap sinking fast and the lib rats jumping ship.
democraps have higher debt and higher taxes
Must I remind you that Good Old Jack is one person and did you notice that he also mentioned Pelosi?
Interesting that none of your type, 6079 Smith W, were ever concerned about openess, or any efforts to hold Bushwacker and his crew's feet to the fire. What is missing in your "Ananlysis" (lol) is that the Bushwacker administration screwed you and your kind, and everyone else, unless you were wealthy.
I am always amazed that your type can/could never see through the many contradictions of what the "Repubs" did to the lesser clowns that were/are loyal to them. We know (lol) that Chainey was very open and communicated and acted on the majority's behalf. I do notice that YOU do not indicate when Obama is not being truthful about what he inherited from Bushwacker. If you did attempt to do so it would require that you first have amnesia and then use fiction as your source. Oh, you have been using fiction!!
Exactly what did you gain from your "Repubs" running the country? Where did the jobs go? When did America become a major debtor nation? How many wars were started under your "Repubs?" Did you ever see any of those weapons of mass destruction?
For all of those persons that did not have health care when Bushwacker took office did they have it when he left? Do you know that the number of millionaires and billionaires increased when your "Repubs" were in charge? Did you get your share of the loot from the billions that disappeared in Iraq (you do know about it don't you?)? Was the country better off after Bushwacker lead it for EIGHT YEARS?
What is difficult for you is that you will have to know some facts in order to answer these questions. Do you really believe that the "Repub" leadership has YOUR best interest in mind? Do they consult you before THEY make decisions?
Enough for now. If you can give factual answers to those questions I doubt if you will be able to respond by Christmas. NO RHETORIC ALLOWED!!!
He He He...sweatin' it abit Brutus?
@ In The Light:
re : in the light..bush never got on tv a read from his teleprompter that told him to say "i will change the way the gov does business. we will be open and not hide anything from the people of the us.". pay attention to what cafferty is saying. if you have to replay it!
I love it how these Repubs don't want you to mention Bush or Cheney and how they destroyed the middle class, but they are the 1st ones to bring up Carter. Carter, really?
brutie, Peanut Jimmy, really how about intern Billy Clinton, Obama has done more to destroy the middle class in 20 months than any other president in history.
democraps have high taxes, no guts.
Openness? This happened back in March and we're just learning about it?
Here comes Mr. Obama and his gun bans:
I searched the WH website and this incident doesn't show up. I wonder why?
Wouldn't you think that "Dear Leader" would want to crow about keeping us safe?
Openness? Herr Hitler would be proud.
Bye, Bye, Bye O-Bye-ma.....
Well well winnie. you never carried a weapon for this country, you even stated that on your other rants.
Now you display the flag here.
My uniform had crossed rifles on each bicep.

Go help Jack. People like him need you.
7 Lies In Under 2 Minutes by Obama. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UErR7i2onW0
Remember Obama's speech in 2008?
"I will make our government open and transparent so that anyone can ensure that our business is the People's business," he said. "I am going to make it impossible for congressmen or lobbyists to slip pork-barrel projects or corporate welfare into laws when no one is looking because, when I'm president, meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public. No more secrecy. That's a commitment I'm going to make to you as President: No more secrecy."
The President outlined a clear vision of open government in that speech:
"When there's a bill that ends up on my desk as President, you, the public, will have five days to look online and find out what's in it before I sign it so that you know what your government is doing.
When there are meetings between government lobbyists and a government agency, we will put as many of those meetings as possible on line for every American to watch.
When there's a tax bill being debated in Congress, you will know the names of the corporations that would benefit and how much money they would get, and we will put every corporate tax break and every pork-barrel project on line for every American to see. You will know who asked for them, and you can decide whether your representative is actually representing you."
No more secrecy?????
When you mention "Tea Party" to a Liberal they immediately assume that they have to defend O'Bama and bash Bush and Cheney. Liberals, "With Me" this is not the situation. I was fed-up with Bush and Cheney and was really thinking it couldn't be any worse, wrong again. After 8 years of Bush people had higher expectations and when this joker came on the scene it has become more that anyone can stand. To those of you who are content with this administration, you are very easy to please. A cup of rice a day and a piece of dog meat once a week and you'll be fine. I'm not going to live every day life like I've witnessed and the suffering by many during WW11. This is leading to conditions never before seen in this country. I'd say the hand writing is on the wall but it's even more obvious than that.. They are telling us what they want our country to be and you're not listening.
Oh Winnie, here we go now you are comparing Hitler to President Obama. You are such a low life, do you have any morals at all?
Mikel said that "bush never got on tv a read from his teleprompter that told him to say" you are right , Bshwacker COULD NOT READ!!! EZBOB said " I'm not going to live every day life like I've witnessed and the suffering by many during WWII." Where have you been since WWII? The only thing that exceeds your hypocricy is your lack of honesty about Bushwacker and all of their lies and causing the injury and death of so many people based on lies. Evidently you value something else over life!! SAM said "Obama has done more to destroy the middle class in 20 months than any other president in history." SAM you need to stop watching the "Soaps" and make an effort to present some ADULT solutions, but I guess that you have to be an adult!!
All of you so-called conservatives must have used LEADER DOGS to get you past the Bushwacker blunders, lies, false wars, creating the largest Federal Government in History, exporting jobs, created more billionaires and millionaires than ever existed, and just what did it profit any of you? Also what are you trying to conserve, keeping the rich richer? Any intelligent person would understand which economic group that Bushwacker supported, one Hint, It WAS NOT YOU AND YOURS.
Show some independent thinking and stop readinf the script that your Masters wrote for you!! Any intelligent person would not be loyal to any political party, but again it does require intelligence. What do either one of you get for cheer leading for your Masters? I still can not believe that anyone would reference WWII as a basis to criticize a current POTUS and not be honest enough to admit how badly Bushwacker Played the Role of POTUS. When his term ended there was little remaining of the "Middle Class."
Regardless, being omniscient Mr. Obama probably doesn't need to read. :)
in the light..i think that you are just pi$$ed that you did not have the brains or fortitude to become better off during the bush years. i hope that you were not planning on that happening with obamass in office because if you did you are really going to be pi$$ed now!
There are people on here talking about having high expectations for President Obama. These people always have high expectations for everyone else except the person in the mirror. You sat around and did nothing while the Repubs dismantled the middle class. Now you whine because the black man in the Whitehouse is trying to fix 30 years of disaster. The only thing you consistently do well is hate. You would rather see our country collapse than support anything the Prez does.
Repubs have nothing, nothing but hate and contempt for our country.
To all the Liberals that Bush "Supposedly" broke. He sure didn't cost you enough. You still have most of the jobs that continus to lead us into bankruptcy: teachers, government workers, newspaper reporters, most TV stations, radio shows; plus you have enough money to buy computors and post negativity on anything you don't agree on. You post a series of negative comments about Conservatives and the Tea Party while supporting Foreign Governments and the killing of innocent Americans. You honestly make me sick to my stomach. You support Illegal crossing our border and fail to defend "Americans" who want to protect their States, homes, property, and most of all, their families. No respect for the Twin Towers area and the Flight 93 crash site. You probably see no wrong with the 170 tombstones that were over-turned in Clyde. It's all the same thing--RESPECT-- and love of country and our Freedom which you have no problem giving away.
Re: Bush reading - can't believe no one has posted this old one:
i was unaware that the republicans have been in power for the last thirty years..wow! just thinking that somewhere along the line we have had a few dem presidents in the last 30.
We had 1 mikel, and he was Repub lite. You never here me sticking up for Clinton when it comes to policy.
F. ear O. ligarthy X. enophobes.
Pack up all your care and woes..here I go singing low,.... bye, bye O-Bye-Ma.......
so lucifer, I mean lucius, are you saying Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush2 continued Carter policies? Really?
F. ear O. ligarchs X. enophobes.
Brutus, I would appreciate it if you show some class and address me by my actual username. I am afraid that this childish game of name calling has become so second nature in the political arena that people accept it as appropriate. Unfortunately, you are demonstrating a major concern I have with politics today. Secondly, I do not think that Reagan, Bush Sr. or Bush Jr. carried on Carter's policies. I was merely pointing out how ridiculous your previous comment was that grouped Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton and Bush Jr's policies together.
They were the same.
Wow! I must say that I am flabbergasted by your statement. I am not quite sure how you came to that conclusion, but the great thing about America is you are entitled to your opinion even if it lacks any trace of validity. I would, however, encourage you to delve further into your studies of our current and previous presidents' policies before making hasty decisions and comments.
