    Contrary to the lies being told by the Repubs - President Obama is not only NOT a big spender - he's the lowest spender since Eisenhower.

    When will the Repubs stop lying and trying to rewrite history - and start taking responsibility for the epic mess they made of the economy and the National Debt under Dubya Bush?

    The Republicans will never take responsibility or even admit to this.

    However, history will show just how bad Republicans have been for the United States.

    Interesting chart on the Forbes page - those are the annualized growth rates. If someone spent $8390583904853845908350934 in year one, and the same in each year after, their annualized growth would be zero. In fact, unless a presidents annualized growth in spending is negative, then that means they spent more than the last one.

    Just to play devil's advocate, Barack Obama has (nominally) added more sovereign debt than every president from George Washington to Bill Clinton combined.

    Really? When are folks going stop trying to prove who is the biggest shit head (repukes or demwits) neither give a fuck about our country. Debating which will put us in BK soonest really is just a waste if time. The sooner the citizens understand our path is not something that can be sustsained (for at least the last 11 years) and vote both major groups out the better.

    You've posted 5 times in the forums and 4 of them are this exact same statement and the other is a rewording of this.

    Way to contribute, lol. You must be part of the Republican brain trust we hear so much about. icon_lol.gif


    Because he expanded the wars
    Because he added over 4 trillion to the debt
    Because he hates small businesses
    Because he doesn't prosecute NBPP voter intimidators
    Because he uses scare tactics aLOt
    Because he raised my premiums
    Because he defunded Medicare by 500Billion
    Because he encourages the outsourcing of American jobs
    Because he is an evil Marxist-Leninist bent on destroying America

    We told them NO OBAMACARE and theybpassed it. we said stop spending and they just raised the debt ceiling. We told them wen are taxed too much. Tax increases are coming.

    I have facts to backup my hate. I have reasons.. The left just say, he's cool,

    THIS is the best example of how FOX News and Right Wing Media

    have thoroughly FUCKED the USA, the country created to give

    opportunity to the vast majority.....to give science and education freedom from religious dogma.

    FOX NEWS HAS DONE ITS WORK.

    We now have the ignorant begging to be ruled by an oligarchy.

    FYI - the irrational far-right-wing crazy talk and the bogus Repub talking points that you've posted on this thread only make you and your party look like a crazy ass joke.
