Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

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.

PS: Can hardly wait to see how you dodge and dance on this one. Oh, I know it is Bush's fault
You know, you are one hopeless piece of sh*t.

I took my time to write a post before explaining why the promise of 8% is a lie but it did not good whatsoever. You just returned to being your dumbass, uneducated self.

My God you right wingers are stupid.

There is a report that was written in early January of 2009 called the Romer Report.

That report, put our before he 4th quarter 2008 numbers came out, estimated that the recession would cause unemployment to reach a max of 9%.(most economists agreed)

BASED ON THAT 9%, THE STIMULUS WOULD HOLD THE RATE TO 8%. If the max was 9, the bill would hold it to 8.

Now, if that just too f*cking difficult for you to grasp??? Are you really this GD dumb?

Shortly after, numbers came out showing the economy shrunk by a much high number than originally thought making that 9% estimate no longer valid.

Te CBO analyzed the results of the stimulus& said it lowered the rate by the amount it was engineered to do. Between 1 & 1 1/2%.

Say there is a big storm coming & they predict 2" of rain. The local dam is of concern & you ask me if it will hold. I say, if it rains 2", the dame will hold. It rains 4 " the dam over flows & breaks. You call me a liar saying I promised that dam would not break.

Hindenburg homer thinks liberals are smart - like him! Qu'elle suprise! Can you say cocoon?

Liberals have an unwarranted sense of superiority. It is a character defect. The Kenyan's narcissistic personality disorder is an extreme example.

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?
So this duplication wasn't there before Obama took office?

This duplication is not created by the executive branch. It is done by Congress.

Obama tried to end corporate welfare for oil companies. Republicans said no.

72 billion is what - less that 2%.

I have news. These thing all happen under Republican leadership. Democrat leadership. Heck even in private business.

So why didn't the Republicans end all of this when Bush was President & Republicans ran Congress?

Obama asked congress to end some of this duplication & combine some departments. He is still waiting for an answer.

I see your problem, maybe I can help.

You see, you used the numbers 8 and 9 and expected the mouthbreather to perform an arithmetic operation. That's where you let 'im off the leash. To a right wing idiot, the difference between 8 and 9 could be anywhere between 10 brazilion and green.
