Obama Says Debt Is Bad

Oh, my...

You do realize that the public record isn't a website, right?

And I already discussed FY09's numbers -- which both Bush and Obama contributed to. Believe me, I know when the fiscal year starts, so don't condescend. Have you ever taken part in the federal budget process? I have -- several billion dollars worth. So don't presume to tell me how it's done.

Is it possible for you to discuss any topic at all without the same old tired conspiracies? You're pretty much a one-trick pony in that regard, and it suggests you've got nothing else.

Roosevelt gave us 50 years of Democrat rule? WRONG. Roosevelt died in 1945. The very next Congress that convened in 1947 had Republican majorities in both the House and Senate -- as did the 104th Congress in 1995. In addition, Republicans controlled the Senate in five other congresses between 1945 and 1995. They also controlled the presidency for 14 out of 26 congresses in that same timeframe. Even if you go to the beginning of Roosevelt's presidency, you don't get 50 years of Democrat control.

And "intellectual" has three "L's" in it, Einstein, not two.

Sounds to me like you're kind of getting down off the porch to run underneath with the kitty.

But taking a realistic view I can easily understand how you were mislead. The Heritage Foundation just put up that graph, and a quick look tells you all you want to know. There's 09 Obama's first year right there, way down in the red, even though we now know 09 was Bush's budget, and I can't for the life of me think of any additions Obama added.

I'd leave off telling tales about your personal life, I might just not beleive them. Billions of dollars and federal budgets? Why not tell me about when you were an astronaut or a fighter pilot? Didn't you rescue a buch of POWs in North Vietnam in a super secret mission? If you're so informed why don't you know the very basics about the fedeal budget?

I personaly thought Roosvelt was elected in 32 but I might be wrong, what do I know I use bad sources like Wiki, and Eisenhower and Nixon might have had Rs in front of their names but they expanded and strengthened social programs that are the cornerstone of the Democrats. Of the presidencies and congresses since 1932 up until 1980 the Dems dominated, That's the time frame historians use, ignore it if you wish, or better yet just stop watching TV until at least 2056 because you're just going to be disappointed until at least then.

Never been an astronaut. I've flown in a fighter and even got to fly it briefly, but that doesn't make me a fighter pilot. Call me when you've managed the budget and put together the POM submission for a $3 billion weapon system sometime.

Otherwise, give me a break about how the "fedeal" (whatever that is) budget works.

That's a ridiculous attempt to spin Eisenhower and Nixon as Democrats. Oh, yeah...the '72 election...BIG Democrat victory. Laugh Laugh Laugh

Besides, by your yardstick Truman, Kennedy and Johnson were Republicans because they gave us wars against countries that had never attacked us.

And as I said, Republicans had control of both House and Senate in the 80th Congress that convened in 1947. That means the Democrats weren't running it. You might want to read up on how congress works.
