Before being elected, barack said he'd cut the deficit in half in his first
term.He didn't cut it by 50%Or 40 %Or
30%Or 20%Or 10%Or 1%He increased
it.Either barack lied or he doesn't have a clue about the
A correct statement, even if some people have a hard time remembering, which
came first the chicken or the check?
There has never been a President of the United States that has escaped
accountability like Barrack Obama. He constantly campaigns and tells the world
he is fighting against the very effects and consequences of his agenda and the
press never questions him, never challenges his record and the Republicans cave
on everything and ironically gets called obstructionists even though they have
not stopped Obama on anything. Obama changes one laws after another passed by
congress on a whim and everyone just accepts it. Obama is a master of deception
and smoke and mirrors politics like the world has never seen before or probably
will again. How does he do it over and over again?
@MountanmanUmmmmmm, you could make a strong argument that George Bush and
Dick Cheney should have been at least investigated for war crimes(especially
Cheney). I would call that escaping scrutiny.Second, where have the
republicans given in? You act like they roll over for Obama, I can't think
of where they've actually agreed with him. So give me some examples of
Republicans rolling over, and not being obstructionists.
To "Noodlekaboodle" if Bush and Cheny should have been investigated for
war crimes, why not Obama. He is continuing the same policies that Bush
started.Obama is nothing more than Bush on steroids. He does the
same things that Bush did, but has made them bigger and cost more.
@ Noodle. Examples of Obama getting what he wanted with only token opposition
from Republicans:#1: Higher taxes on the "rich".#2:
Obamacare#3: DOMA struck down.#4: Welfare reform act scuttled
unconstitutionally and food stamp recipients more than doubled since.#5:
NSA spying.#6: No accountability for IRS, Benghazi, fast and furious and
A.P. scandals all swept under the rug-thus no accountability.#7: Trillion
dollar taxpayer bailout of automaker unions#8: "Shovel ready"
stimulus package that mostly went to teachers unions and almost no construction,
infrastructure jobs.#9: Obama phones.#10: Transferred $750 billion
out of Medicare into Obamacare-grand larceny at it's best!My
question: How does he get away with these things? No investigation, no questions
by the news media and no accountability, none, zero, zip, nada!As
far as the war on terror. You have a short memory of 9-11 and want to ignore Al
Qaida whom are still attacking us even if Obama denies it! The movie that nobody
saw caused Benghazi, according to Hillary. But "what difference does it
@ Chris BYou clearly don't understand the difference between
deficit and debt.
