So if you opposed interracial marriage does that mean you still favor non-whites? Oh course not.

You can't have gay friends while at the same time want to turn them into second class citizens.

Note that in Bush's last year (Oh God, he's going to launch into another hissy fit about my mentioning Bush) the deficit was higher than any of Obama's years.

See, perhaps we can find a little common ground. I love the wind turbine fraud we've been subjected to for the last decade or so (this is second wave for them). Great idea if you want a little power in some remote area and consistency isn't an issue. But a very bad idea for the massive grids we have. It is green though. The finest green one can slip into a bank account that is. Dare I say it? Enron, if you stand on your head and look sideways, spells Kenneth Lay loves Dick Cheney. Lucky for you Obama has been more than willing to continue the smoke and mirrors scheme.

1st of all, that is not a Government website. The fact is Obama is a middle class killer. in his speech in Cleveland, Obama opposed tax reform that would lower rates and close loopholes. He said it would be a tax increase on the middle class. The problem for Obama is that Ryan’s tax reform plan does not involve any tax increase for the middle class. His plan cuts tax rates for every taxpayer, including those in the middle class. And that has always been the Republican position.

President Reagan cut tax rates across the board for everyone, including the middle class, and expanded the personal exemption, which benefits middle and lower income taxpayers the most. President Bush cut tax rates for everyone, and for lower income workers by a greater proportion than for higher income workers. As a result, by 2007, before President Obama had even entered office, official IRS data showed that the middle 20% of all income earners, the true middle class, paid only 4.7% of all federal income taxes. What Obama has done throughout his Presidency is the opposite of tax reform. He has expanded the loopholes and increased rates. Those loopholes have included new and expanded welfare tax credits and corporate welfare like his green energy handouts. When his own Simpson-Bowles Commission recommended real tax reform closing loopholes in return for reducing rates, Obama only paid lip service to it, but didn’t lift a finger to advance the proposal.

In his Cleveland speech, President Obama continued to propound his fundamental economic theory that what drives economic recovery, jobs and growth is increased government spending. That is why his 2013 budget proposes the highest government spending in world history, following an $800 billion, 27% increase in federal spending from 2008 to 2012, with a proposed 53% increase in annual federal spending from $3.8 trillion today to a record shattering $5.8 trillion by 2022. This President Obama budget proposes a very grand total of $47 trillion in spending over the entire 10 years, another all-time world record.

Is draining all of that money out of the private sector really going to create strong sustained growth, pay down our long term debt, and generate good, middle-class jobs? Or is it going to bring the chaos of Greece and Western Europe to America?

Maybe that is why Obama’s budget won exactly zero votes on the floor of the House, including from any Democrat, and won the same Big Sombrero on the floor of the Senate. In sharp contrast, Ryan’s budget supported by Romney passed the House with bipartisan support. For all of the yelling and screaming over the Ryan budget, it simply returns federal spending to the long term, postwar historical average of 20% of GDP, within 3 years. It averts entirely the developing deficit and debt crisis by consistently reducing the national debt, until ultimately that debt is paid off entirely. That results from the operation over the years of Ryan’s spending and entitlement reforms to be adopted today, rather than future spending cuts.

That is why the Census Bureau reports real middle class wages and income are declining, with more Americans in poverty today than at any time in the more than 50 years that Census has been tracking poverty. And no, Obama can’t say that is because the recession was so bad, because America’s historical record is the worse the recession the stronger the recovery. Based on that historical record, we should be in the third year of a booming economic recovery by now.
Obama doesn’t have any credibility on how to produce strong sustained growth, pay down our long term debt, and generate good, middle class jobs. Based on Obama’s economic address in Cleveland, the real question in this election is whether this is still America, or whether it is now Argentina.

Add up every year of Bush’s presidency and his combined deficits will not equal 1 year’s of Obama’s.

But Obama’s 4 years of deficits totaling near $6 trillion are everyone else’s fault. When the bills start arriving for Obamacare, it will be the Republican’s fault, probably Bush’s.

I don't listen to Rush, what did he say? Congress is going to do everything they can to get to the bottom of Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds and all these other guys supposedly lying to Congress. But here's the attorney general blatantly lying to Congress twice, and he's allowed to recant and retract his testimony.....Obama is a Naked Marxist. Obama is a bigger radical then Putin. He hates America. He hates the power of this nation.

He's done everything he possibly can to destroy the military and destroy NASA.

He's seeking to reduce our number of nuclear weapons to below the amount we're allowed to have, under a 2010 Russia-US arms treaty.
