June 28, 2013

At a time when many Americans are having to tighten our belts and do more with less, President Barack Obama thinks government should be an exception....

robert,

And when will the left and Obama accept any responsibility for anything bad that's happened since he took office?

We're into Obama's second term and yet anything bad that happens is still blamed on Bush and/or the GOP.

Robert couldn't do a fact check on anything. The only thing his fact checks consist of is calling people racist or bigots. From what I have read of his posts in here he has nothing going for him in life at all. Sad when the only "talking" point you have is calling people racist.

Judeye, did you know that we launched missiles in Iraq in 1998 in an attempt to destroy their WMD manufacturing capability? Did you know that all through the 90’s we were flying probe missions into Iraq in an attempt to locate their WMD manufacturing facilities? There was over a decade of intelligence stating that Iraq had WMD’s and would use them against their enemies. Every major intelligence agency in the world said Iraq had WMD’s. We knew for a fact he had chemical/biological weapons as he used them against the Iranians and his own Kurdish people. You really need to get off this lie thing and look at what happened the previous decade before Bush took office.

Judeye, did you know that at least eight times a year, Bush hosts at his ranch get togethers for Wounded Warriors? When the Muslim terrorist killed and wounded those soldiers at Fort Hood, Bush immediately, during the night, went and visited the wounded soldiers, directing the Post Commander not to announce his visit as he wanted no media attention; took Obama a week to get there. When returning GI's from Iraq and Afghanistan were traveling through Dallas, Bush would show up and greet them at all hours of the day or night. You never heard this because he didn't do it for photo opps or publicity. I've served in the military since Richard Nixon and no other president, not even Ronald Reagan is loved and respected more by the men and women in uniform than GW Bush and no other one has cared more for the troops than Bush.

Judeye-did all your friends like Biden,Kennedy(RIP),both Clintons,Pelosi,Kerry,Feinstein and on and on lie as well? Yes Judeye they all said it and as you say,"look it up"! Maybe we could get ole Robert check that out for you. I'm sure he could find a way to say it never happened right. Catch him at the EBT card refill station.

stangv8..and I would laugh if you think Bush cared for the people and their needs. Same guy who took us into a war based on lies (which he knew were lies at the time)...and almost led us into a Great Depression.

Good grief..how quickly some forget

robert, like I said. You don't have a clue of what leadership is...it is unfortunate. It doesn't matter what anyone signs on for. Leaders take care of their people and the needs of their people. Bush understood that and always traveled after Christmas day. Christmas may be meaningless to you but I'll tell you this, it means a lot to those in the military. They'll do whatever is required of them but it's the job of their leaders to take care of them. Leadership dude...you might look into it.

"I ask why are they not in jail? and yes I am looking at Obama and Holder..and everyone in our congress who has protected the bankers who stole from us all." One thing I can agree with you on judeye. I have thought they all should be in jail for this and many other things. The only possible drawback I see is Biden would take over the helm.

"Insulsts instead of rational thought (sic)" This from the person who has called everyone who disagrees with him a racist, a bigot, a joke, flawed, TEA Party Terrorist, etc. Look at the insults and lies of your own and you will see where others towards you come from.

Thank you Joe for the definition of require but again not sure what you are talking about. I sent you an excerpt from the CRA that said banks "WERE NOT REQUIRED" to give high risk mortgages. Do you understand what Required means? It does not mean a guidline, it does not mean adherence so once again thank you for proving my point. Banks were NOT REQUIRED to give risky loans.

joew..banks required

no they were not..that is made up right wing bull...have you looked it up

they gave out loans to almost anyone. It used to be that your credit was gone over very closely in order to borrow enough money to buy a house. Gosh I remember our first house we had to have 25% down and little to no debt.

They KNEW the loans wer toxic. They bundled them up and sold them at A++ investments, hoping they would be sold before anyone knew. Pyramid type of scheme that worked for some years. But as we all know..when it crashes..the entire stack built on the false values comes down with it.

I ask why are they not in jail? and yes I am looking at Obama and Holder..and everyone in our congress who has protected the bankers who stole from us all.

Money talks..bull walks and if enough people in this country really understood what went on I think we would be like Iceland and throw them into jail and get our money back.

Must be the cheap wine that trailer park trash like him drink. He definitely has some type of dementia. Nothing else explains his comments and rants. Cheap wine and dementia seem to go hand in hand with trash like that.
