<quoted text>
The economic collapse was caused by the Democrats' idiotic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program. The Democrats wanted no oversight, and to pursuade the Democrats to not do what they did throughout the Cold War, that is sabotage of the United States during a time of war, the Republicans nullified oversight of the Democrats idiocy and the Democrats supported the Iraq front in exchange. The result was the Democrats collapsed the economy.
Now that your party line bullshit has been debunked A-F**KING-GAIN, let's get back to the issue you continually run away from. This time, answer the post. I'll help you. Here's the post again:
So, after the dot-com bust coincided with the Arab jihad declaring war on the United States by slaughtering 3000 Americans here in the United States, how would you fund that war?
And, if you are aware of any actual facts, you will know that the deficit was dwindling under Bush. Bush handed the Democrats that took over Congress in January, 2007, a deficit of just 160 billion dollars.
How big of a deficit did the Democrats create after they took over all the purse strings of the government in January, 2007?
To answer this, you actually have to put numbers in your post.
Give us the deficit and debt for each year since January, 2007.
Not the lame CRA excuise. Yep that CRA laid around & then after 20 year, popped up & nearly killed this country. Your problem is that you are so GD dumb you think subprime loans are all CRA loans.

In your immense thinking ability, the banks, who hated the CRA because it was less profitable, all of a sudden liked it & went hog wild.

Wow.

Those deficits caused by the recession?

I see you have nothing to show what legislation the Democrats passed the first 9 months of 2007 that caused the recession.

Just as I knew you couldn't.

Keep looking to blame others for your party's failure.

Post #691461:- Why would any of you Repubs post a "quote" from Obama that anyone can see the speech or read a transcript and know it's a lie? Here's the quote in context:
"Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen".
Obama'a point was I realize over your head. But the point was without a government TVA ,places in VA, TN, KY would still be without power. Without a Hoover Dam the west would still be barren. And even in the case of Bill Gates and Microsoft he invented DOS while working on a government project.
----------
You idiot briar.. Bill Gates bought DOS from Seattle Computer Products. The government did not have a damn thing to do with Bill Gates buying DOS... Bill Gates bought DOS from Seattle Computer Products to close a deal to develop DOS for the IBM PC because IBM chose to outsource the operating system instead of developing DOS internally which Bill Gates successfully got a contract to provide.... You idiot...

It's the culture...
Bill Gates FIRST paid project was by the State of Washington to design a program that showed road usage. His next biggest paid project was to design a program that allowed controllers to change traffic lights. That program was when he changed his company name from Traf-O-Data to Microsoft. These two programs paid for by the government were the first Gates EVER made money at. Had it not been for these government jobs there would be no Micro Soft.

On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.
The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.
Why would Attorney General Eric Holder drop these charges against such a radical group? The Answer is Barack Hussein Obama.
Most disturbing, the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions. Citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims. Equal enforcement of justice is not a
piority of the present DOJ.
C Adams.Former Attorney at Law for the DOJ.
Since they got away with it, more of the same kind of intimidation at the polls might be expected in November. Let's hope not.

A video of Obama stating he took money out of Medicare to pay for ObamaTax -duh.
Obama's plan saved money by reducing the growth of Medicare. These savings come from changing how medicare pays for treatment by moving away from itemized lists to results based pay.

Ryan's plan reduces medicare costs too.(by making Seniors pay mre)

So if Obama is stealing from Medicare, so is Paul; Ryan.

Too bad dumbass Romney can't get it, He's running around telling everyone reducing spending is now stealing.

Ryan & Romney are then stealing food from the mouths of hungry kids by reducing food stamps.

What a couple of meanies.

Starving children while handing billions to the wealthy. Sounds like Mitt Romney.

Not true. Justice officials who served in the Bush administration determined there wasn't enough evidence to pursue the case primarily for political reasons.

A Justice Department lawyer on the case said some of his colleagues in the civil rights division were interested in protecting only minorities.

Civil rights lawyers activistis dropped the case under the pressure of politics. Not Bush.

It was the Justice Department under Bush who dropped the case. Civil rights lawyers wanted to protect minorities over upholding the law.

You can decide if that was a wise decision or not.
