About the deficit:
The deficit was $122 billion less than last year's $1.42 trillion, a modest improvement.
Yes, but last year’s $1.42 trillion dollar deficit was primarily the result of TARP and the stimulus. What’s the excuse this year? Shouldn’t it have been less than $1 trillion? Next year is projected to be over $1 trillion again. Somehow this is Bush’s fault even though his highest deficit was around $400 billion.
About the elections (President Barack Obama (D-USA):
They're fighting back. The empire is striking back. To win this election, they are plowing tens of millions of dollars into front groups. They are running misleading negative ads all across the country.
Sorry, champ. Last I looked you were the head of the authoritarian, controlling, free speech fighting top down government.
You’re the Empire.
The Tea Party is the Rebellion.
We’re coming for you, Palpatine.
About the non-existent economic recovery:
(sorry, I have to paraphrase on this one. I heard it on the radio this morning. It was an excerpt from FNC’s “Bulls & Bears” show this weekend. The show’s resident liberal was asked about “shovel ready projects” and Obama’s admission that there aren’t any)
Well, the truth of the matter is that in America, for projects like this, we have an awful lot of bureaucracy and red tape to deal with. It’s taken longer to get these projects started.
Someone tell this lady that she’s trying to defend a President who has done nothing since entering office except increase the amount of bureaucracy and red tape. When I heard this one I literally busted out laughing in the car. But she wasn’t done yet.
When reminded that she still hadn’t responded to the question of why there aren’t “shovel ready projects” when Obama has been telling us for two years that there are:
Well, I’m just glad that we have a President who is willing to tell us the truth about these things.
LOL! Did you hurt your neck from that spin? He’s been lying for two years. The only thing he has told the truth about is admitting that he’s been lying.
I’ll look for links or audio of this broadcast. It really was one of the funniest things I’ve heard in quite some time.
In 15 days, these folks are going to be amazed at how big the flood is going to be.
