Waste and duplication is the democrat's logo.
That kind of "aha" moment is usually a symptom of early onset Alzheimer's.

Hey, Dingaling Norton.

If you don't think big corporations are funding Obama's campaign and have not been in bed with this administration, you, too, a lot more stupid than I thought.

I understood you to mean the WTC bombers were the 9/11 hijackers.

If I misunderstood, a thousand apologies.

However, a lot of good that did - arresting the few who first bombed the Twin Towers - so that the enemy could begin plotting an even bigger attack on 9/11.

See what happens when good men do nothing? Evil prevails. Just like they say it does.

I guess you are just unwilling to have a real conversation.
Where is Obama spending waste & duplication that was not there previously.
I'll await your answer.
Obama put 4 trillion on the table & the Republicans said no.
The only things the Republicans want to cut is NPR, Planned Parenthood, & funding for the ACA.
They aid no to cuts in oil subsidies. Gee Carol, do ya think companies making billions in profits need subsidies??? Your party does.
Just to give you a few examples of duplication - keeping in mind it's only the tip of the iceberg:

*Twenty agencies operating 56 programs dedicated to financial literacy. GAO and agencies canít estimate what they cost.
*The federal government runs 80 economic development programs at four agencies at a cost of $6.5 billion.
*The Department of Transportation spends $58 billion on 100 programs run by five agencies with 6,000 employees that havenít evolved since 1956.
*Fifteen federal agencies administer more than 30 food-related laws.
*At least five departments, eight agencies and more than two dozen presidential appointees oversee $6.48 billion related to bioterrorism.

http://blog.heritage.org/2011/03/01/duplicati...

The top ten of a long list of wasteful spending:

1. The federal government made at least $72 billion in improper payments in 2008.
2. Washington spends $92 billion on corporate welfare (excluding TARP) versus $71 billion on homeland security.
3. Washington spends $25 billion annually maintaining unused or vacant federal properties.
4. Government auditors spent the past five years examining all federal programs and found that 22 percent of them -- costing taxpayers a total of $123 billion annually -- fail to show any positive impact on the populations they serve.
5. The Congressional Budget Office published a "Budget Options" series identifying more than $100 billion in potential spending cuts.
6. Examples from multiple Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports of wasteful duplication include 342 economic development programs; 130 programs serving the disabled; 130 programs serving at-risk youth; 90 early childhood development programs; 75 programs funding international education, cultural, and training exchange activities; and 72 safe water programs.
7. Washington will spend $2.6 million training Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly on the job.
8. A GAO audit classified nearly half of all purchases on government credit cards as improper, fraudulent, or embezzled. Examples of taxpayer-funded purchases include gambling, mortgage payments, liquor, lingerie, iPods, Xboxes, jewelry, Internet dating services, and Hawaiian vacations. In one extraordinary example, the Postal Service spent $13,500 on one dinner at a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, including "over 200 appetizers and over $3,000 of alcohol, including more than 40 bottles of wine costing more than $50 each and brand-name liquor such as Courvoisier, Belvedere and Johnny Walker Gold." The 81 guests consumed an average of $167 worth of food and drink apiece.
9. Federal agencies are delinquent on nearly 20 percent of employee travel charge cards, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually.
10. The Securities and Exchange Commission spent $3.9 million rearranging desks and offices at its Washington, D.C., headquarters.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Democrats joined the Republicans in saying enough waste and duplication?

9/11 cost $6 TRILLION???
Boy, that Bush ... what a friggin genius!
Yeah and the 111 democrats who said, "You go bush! You have my vote!"

The deficit has been increasing by a significant amount every year for decades. And, yes, the global economy being dramatically interrupted by 9/11 and having to get it back up and running again and finally going after the bad guys so you possibly won't be the next victim being video taped jumping off a high building did cost some money.

By how much has Obama increased the deficit in less than 4 years again? And what exactly do we have to show for it?

Actually, Carol, the really smart liberals don't bother reading your repetitive dittoheaded snarkiness any more. Almost all national politicians are bought these days; I just want to make sure I vote for the ones who were worth it.

1) The stimulus did not fail at all. It lowered the unemployment rate 1 1/2% & helped turn a shrinking economy into a growing one.
2) AIG insured all the financial institutions against certain losses. Bailing out AIG was merely a mechanism to help keep all their clients from failing.
3) We will the bulk of our GM money back. Meanwhile we are not paying for their unemployment or getting stick paying their pension program.
4) Solyndra was a good investment at the time. If you don't know this, you're am idiot.
5) Moving away from oil is nothing but GOOD for this country. Just think if those hundreds of billions that leave our borders every year for oil, could be spent in our economy. We do not have the oil reserves to supply all our oil needs regardless of what the moronic right says.
"real Dave"
You are full of manure. The stimulus bill did not lower the unemployment rate by 1 1/2%. I know you do not want to recall but remember when president nobama said pass my stimulus bill and the unemployment rate will not exceed 8%. It was less than 8% when he lied, now for what 39 months in a row it has been over 8%.
Cut the crap.

Just proves how limited your understanding of real evil is.

Best to keep it to yourself so as to not embarrass yourself any more than is necessary.

He'll probably just put up a table umbrella and enjoy being in the great outdoors and someplace you're not.

But, then again, he might get so angry, he'll rip up your Nancy Pelosi posters.

Snarkiness? Moi?

Like the lyrics say in that Animals' song...
I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Probably just comes across that way to liberals such as yourself.

I'm actually as sweet as pie.
