John, I disagree with you 100% but at least you have an argument. A somewhat thought out, even original, argument. That is refreshing coming from your side which normally just posts insults or childish repudiations.
If Bush was part of corruption so ingrained in this country's financials he wouldn't have told Paulson to "let them go under" when referring to the Lehman collapse. That, and 1000 other actions prove Bush was not part of this "let's steal from the US citizen and give it to the masters" scheme that is, no doubt, in action in varying degrees in high places.
Only after he was advised, some 12 hours later, that the cancer would spread to AIG and no one could survive it did he decide to intervene. His gut was "to hell with them all". If they can't run a business properly we're not bailing them out. That is simply a fact.
George Bush was the target of the single biggest media slander in history and almost every sheep fell for it, resulting in what we have now.
They did the same thing with his father. I'm sure you remember the "wimp" tag the media gave him. Here is a guy who not only fought in WWII but a fighter pilot. He not only was a fighter pilot, he was shot out of the sky by the enemy and went from there to continue being a fighter pilot. I submit I doubt I would get in a fighter aircraft and I'm no wimp. I promise you, had I been shot out of the sky, wondering if I was going to live or die, It would be very difficult to get me back into the jet. Have you ever seen a fighter jet land on an aircraft carrier? If you have then you will know why the most dangerous place on earth, statistically, is the deck of a fighter aircraft. George Bush made exactly 126 landings on aircraft carriers. This is a wimp?
Come on folks, hear the news and listen to the news outlets but please have a sense of discretion when it comes to interpreting the news. They tell you the same lie enough times, regardless of its absurdity, and eventually you repeat it like puppets.
George Bush senior was no more a "wimp" than Barack Obama is y'all's savior. Wake up!
Yes I know I have original thoughts...thanks for the compliment....but I disagree with you...remember the good old days of the Resolution Trust Corporation the 1st major set back via the elities ravaging and pilaging the middle class....this was just a tease. The real ravaging came during his sons W's tenure....
Ultimately.....these loose playing politicains are stoking a very bleak future for the American worker....George Bush Sr...ambassador of China and his side kick Henry Kissinger certainly did a lot to develop China from a poor communist country with few resourses to now a superrich communistic super power...
Thanks Henry and George...you vision was so helpful...we will soon be working 20 hours a day too for a bowl of rice....who said we can't compete...

So how's that for an original thought...not only original but factual too...

There was just a two hour "Frontline" on the Wall Street thing. The left-leaning producers entire driving point was "why were so many executives prosecuted in the Savings and Loan debacle and not yet one single wall street exec has been indicted under the Obama administration.

It is quite eye-opening. Obama and his administration are in bed with big money in a way this country has never seen. That is a fact. A fact, unfortunately that will go uninvestigated by any of the major news organizations who are so deeply entrenched in Obamamania it makes one sick.

Watch the Frontline program if you get a chance. It is disturbing. Over and over they interview FBI agents and Treasury dept officials and constantly come back to the same simple question: "Why aren't there indictments". The closeups on their faces are very telling as is the repeated factual evidence for an incredible coverup. Executives went to prison by the dozens for the Savings and Loan fiasco. As of yet, not one single exec has even been charged in the Wall Street meltdown. Fact!

There is not one politician it seems that is not in bed with big money or big labor. I don't know what would stop this kind of association but I do believe that there has to be steps taken to remove these politicians from office because they have betrayed the trust of the American people. There is absolutely no reason that any one politician should be if office for decades. I think we should start with term limits and see if that will help curve their behavior. Don't get me wrong. Politicians should talk to businesses and labor groups but there's a point in time where the common people who they are suppose to represent becomes blurry. They should also have whatever meetings that are taking place open to the public or televised via C-SPAN. I think that would be a good place to start (IMO).

It is disgusting and inexcusable that nobody on Wall Street was held accountable for their criminal acts. Obama was wrong to not aggressively pursue criminal charges against all those responsible.

But what is fantastically ironic is that CONSERVATIVES have the balls to bitch about it as if they weren't complicit in the whole debacle or would have pursued charges against Wall Street any differently than Obama did.

When you attack the President for doing exactly what your party would have done - that's called "hypocrisy."

"Let Detroit go bankrupt" - Mitt Romney

President Obama said that President Bush was responsible for bailing out auto companies in Detroit, writes the Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering.

“Keep in mind,” the president said,“That the administration before us, they had been writing some checks to the auto industry asking nothing in return. It was just a bailout, straight — straightforward.”

President Obama said that if it weren’t for his current administration’s policies, the auto industry would have been an expensive failure. That is to say, if it weren’t for President Obama’s guiding hand, the auto industry would have collapsed and taken all that Bush-era bailout money with it.

Obama explained that, unlike his predecessor, he “demanded responsibility” from the auto industry, forcing it to “retool and to restructure,” making it “more efficient.”

Critics argue that the president’s claim that the Bush administration demanded “nothing in return” is false.

As Spiering notes, when the Bush administration authorized the first auto loan of $17.4 billion, in October 2008, some aspects of the loan were contingent upon the companies hitting “Restructuring Targets.” Therefore, no one can say that the Bush administration didn’t at least demand or impose guidelines.

Of course, this isn’t to say that “guidelines” make the idea of a bailout any more desirable, but that President Obama’s allegation simply isn’t accurate.

The president continued:“Over the past two years, that entire industry has added nearly 160,000 jobs, GM is number one in the world again. Ford is investing billions in new American plants. Chrysler is growing faster. So today, the American auto industry is back.”

If I lied, someone would be able to point one out.

But nobody ever has.

Nobody.

Ever.

Whenever I have challenged rightwingers to support their statements with evidence or challenged their false and distorted statements, instead of backing up their statements with facts, they invariably begin making personal attacks against me.

Several rightwingers have repeatedly accused me of lying, but when challenged to support that charge, none have done it. NONE.

This is a common rightwing tactic - hell, Mitt Romney used it during the campaign. Tell lies, then accuse those who are challenging you of being liars. That way people who aren't paying close attention just see mutual accusations and don't spend the time to find out who is actually telling the truth.

That's the reason I occasionally respond - to get the truth on the record. If I just allow people to repeatedly make false allegations against me without responding, it looks like their attacks are legitimate.

Again - neither you or anybody else here has ever - EVER - shown a single lie that I've told. If you have one, post it. I've challenged you to do that countless times before, and you never have.

I wonder why. LOL!

Honest people don't claim--as YOU do--that they NEVER lie, Lil danny BOY. Such a claim is itself evidence that you are an habitual, shameless liar.

You've accused me of plagiarism but repeated requests for you to prove it--even one example--have gone unanswered. Have you any evidence to back your accusation? No? Then you are a proven liar in accusing me of plagiarism, aren't you Lil danny BOY.

But your repeated claims on this forum that neither you nor your wife has lied--about ANYthing--EVER--is all the evidence any sane person needs to confirm that you ARE a liar, Lil danny.

Wireless exec with ties to Obama wins contract to supply poor with smartphones
Obama is in so deep I don't know if he can payoff all these backroom deals.
A cellphone company run by a major Democratic donor and President Obama backer has extended its foray into government contracts, from the so-called “Obama phone” to a project intended to provide high-speed Internet access to low-income families -- amid criticism its product is ill-equipped.
Critics also suggest TracFone Wireless CEO F.J. Pollak used his Obama connections to help his company get one of the 14 contracts.
At issue is a $13.8 million pilot project by the Federal Communications Commission that attempts to find the best ways to increase the broadband access rate among the poor and help improve their digital skills – to eventually help them manage household finances, look for work and do other tasks.
The contracts were awarded late last year, though it's unclear how much went to TracFone.
Pollak and his wife, Abigail, are major Obama bundlers and Democratic donors. The couple hosted a $40,000-a-plate fundraising dinner in June at their Miami Beach home. And Abigail Pollak alone raised at least $632,000 for the Obama re-election effort, a total $1.56 million for him since 2007, according to a financial documents obtained by The New York Times.
In addition, F.J. Pollak has been to the White House at least twice. And he and his wife gave an estimated $270,000 to Democratic candidates in the last election cycle, according to OpenSecrets.org .

Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.

The program is called Lifeline, established in 1984,( under President Reagan ) originally created to subsidize landline phone service for low income Americans, funded by government-collected telecommunication fees, paid by consumers.

In 2008, the program was expanded to support cell phones which quickly escalated the cost of the program. In 2008 the program cost $772 million.

Ring Wing Goes Crazy Over 'Obama Phones' Which Are Actually 'Reagan Phones'

Little did they know that the joke was on them.

Romney’s dwindling army of right-wingers had their hunting vests in a bunch over a new viral video posted on the Drudge Report back in 2012. The minute-long video, which has already gotten more than one million views since it was posted on YouTube, shows an African American woman in Cleveland voicing her support for President Obama because he gave her a “free phone.” As for her appearance, suffice it to say that she comes across as the living incarnation of the right wing’s stereotypical welfare citizen--which, according to Romney, is now a full 47 percent of the population.

Naturally, the right went rabid.

The Steve Malzberg show, hosted by the notoriously right-wing radio personality, quickly tweeted the video with the comment,“Obama voter. G-d help us.”

Rush Limbaugh’s comments were even more scathing--sprinkled with accusations that the woman lacked basic education except for one topic: how to game the system.

"So these are the people that don't like Romney because of what he said about the 47%? No, these are the 47%!(laughing) Yeah, I'll play it again. These are the 47%... She knows how to get this free Obama phone. She knows everything about it. She may not know who George Washington is or Abraham Lincoln, but she knows how to get an Obama phone,”

But it’s the right that are going to end up looking like the ignorant fools. What Limbaugh, Malzberg -- and likely the majority of the million people who viewed the video -- didn’t know was that these “Obama Phones” are actually a creation of their beloved Ronald Reagan, who began the program in 1984.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! FOOL!

You heard it hear first.

Well you all seen those commercials about 'First Alert' and the famous, "Help, I've fallen and cant get up"! commercials and other companies advertising those emergency necklaces that are seen on TV, well starting in 2014 those people who qualify are eligible to receive these necklaces will get them free of charge from Medicare and the Disability Act ,which now these people pay up to $20.00 a month for this service by which a button is pressed to call 911 if that person is in an emergency situation.

Thanks to Obamacare all seniors and disabled vets can apply for one next year.

Wonder if these people will fall under the 47% of moochers in this country?
