riddler78 saidHow is this a revelation to you? Have you not bothered to read what my views are on this? The Republicans have also played a large role - going back to the Bush and Clinton Administrations and even beyond in terms of the housing bubble (e.g. interest deductibility on mortgages). Bush did little to contain domestic spending in order to advance his foreign agenda. In the meantime however Obama has considerably outspent Bush.
Yes, Obama has outspent Bush because it is very expensive to prop up an imploding economy, wind down two wars, and deal with the range of disastrous policies that Bush left in his wake.
You apparently don't remember how the right-wing blamed Clinton for everything, including 9/11 that happened on Bush' watch.
Save it. You're getting to be just like that guy who constantly defends the Iranian government.
Socal, why so shrill? Is it because you're stuck with Mitt Romney and know that all the money in the world won't get him elected?
Not shrill at all, but I do believe he will be elected. You continue to make ridiculous statements. I wouldn't want to jinx things, but if Obama is defeated, I will propose an nation-wide get together of those of us motivated to rejoice.
Lets all take notice of the desparate lengths to which these fanatically partison repub shills like SoCal will go to find some way for everything wrong in the US to be layed at the feet of the Dems. According to SoCal Obama alone added all this debt, since he took office and there is no correlation between Bush debt and the ever increasing debts now.
Lets help him out !! LETS ADMIT TO THE DEMS BEING TOTALLY TO BLAME for any and all problems, The 911 event, the Wars of choice, the Bank and Wall street failures, those tax cuts for the wealthy and everything else. Following are some proposed explainations of why its all the dems fault, this should help SoCal so he doesn't have to labor so hard at the dem blame game.
1. 911 happened because Clintons economic boom created such a high volume of joyous freedoms that the Islamists became very jealous, as a result they started "hating our freedoms" and planning the Airplane attacks under Clintons watch but couldn't get their attack plan completed until Bush was in Office. SoCal will this explaination suffice ?
2. The wars with Iraq and afghanistan and all their attached expenses, were the Dems Idea because they set up these plans as Neo Cons in their War group "the Project for the New American Century"(PNAC) , then the Dems from this group infiltrated the Bush administration to the tune of 41 of their 54 member administration. These Dems were so sure of themselves that they were convinced that the war would only last several weeks because the Iraqi's would come out in droves carrying roses to greet our troops. Who would have ever thought that the Dems could have miscalculated and missed the length of the war by some 7 years or so.
3. The Dems are totally at fault for dragging the Repubs into deregulating everything they could, kicking and screaming all the way to the congressional voting desks. Then the Dems added insult to injury and got all buddy buddy with what regulators were left to the point that the regulators didn't want to hurt their buddies feelings by regulating any of their friends. Kind of a Regulator good ole boy system.
4. Dems have been working on cutting taxes for the most wealthy, because they know that the wealthy know better than the poor and middle classes how to handle their money, so Dems believe its best to give wealth to the already wealthy..
Well SoCal, how are you with these admissions of Dem fault for our economic problems, Did I leave anything out ? This would help Debbie Schultz explain that all Obama's problems came about from his party's previous presidential policies.
