    I’m a Dad. And I have to say no other political figure in recent history has had such a wonderful relationship with his family. When was the last time we were able to look at our President and see a terrific husband and father? It’s been a while. And I’m proud to say that the President for the next 4 years will also be a great hubby and daddy, because it will be Obama for a second term!

    Wrong twice, Noveltman.

    First, look at the close family ties in the Bush family, both father and son. George the Elder made a comment to the effect that his proudest accomplishment was that his adult children still come to visit him. I am no fan of W, but there was no hint of scandal (familywise) during his tenure.

    Second, Obama has been a failure and has done serious damage to this country, both foreign and domestic. His administration has been Carter II. He is a one term president who will be rated a “Below Average” president, just like Carter.

    And he even probably knows the President of U-becky-becky-becky-stan.

    Your opinion is as good as the last president you helped to elect.

    Economic causation is complex, because there are so many factors to take into account, and I don’t want to fall into the fallacy of post hoc, ergo hoc, but it’s suggestive at least that after the New Deal reforms the US had a long period of sustained growth with relatively minor recessions and a decline in income differentials, but all this started to unravel after the New Deal reforms were chipped away, beginning with Reagan. At the least I would say that it’s up to those opposed to the New Deal reforms to make a case against them, in the face of this situation. So maybe it’s conservatives who still believe in myth and fantasy.

    Your nasty personal attacks show that you have no arguments. Pathetic.

    The last of the New Deal regulations to prevent another Great Depression were abolished by Clinton and the Republican Congress with which he was stuck, but he signed the bills.


    There is blame enough for all. The US only has one party, the Rekleptocrats, the party that keeps on taking.

    Goldbrick: GHW Bush as aircraft commander bailed out and left his crew to die. He also bombed fishing boats flying the American flag, as documented in his authorized biography that seeks to lionize him, and claim Japan surrendered because he was in the Pacific theater for four whole months, not because of the minor incidents at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.


    “W” deserted from the National Guard, period.


    Neil has profited from “No Child Left Behind” as no other, making HIS books THE books to support declining education in America. Need we mention Sliverado Savings and his huge profits from that? Oh , like brother George profiting from failed oil companies and baseball scams.


    Right, no “embarrassing” incidents in the Bush family, being cowards and crooks isn’t in the same bracket as not controlling your zipper.(Not that that isn’t a failing, but a different kind of screwing, and with consent.)


    Reagan “broke” unions, but brought in the greatest spending, growth in “big government”, and growth in debt in the history of the United States, period. The error he started was compounded hugely by “W” and Cheney, including what will be $3 TRILLION for a war in Iraq. Pick your enemies is a bad means of government, but the only way Republicans have maintained power over the ignorant savages who support war, and their own destruction, ignorant indeed!

    The fact is that George W. Bush presided over the largest expansion of government since Lyndon Johnson, who was no piker. Spending under Bush doubled the national debt to $10 trillion (which doesn’t count such things as the unfunded liabilities of Social Security and Medicare). His veto pen was not to be seen for most of his administration. All kinds of spending soared, including domestic discretionary spending. “Entitlements” were out of control, helped along by Bush’s prescription-drug add-on to Medicare. Of course his occupation of Iraq cost $10 billion month, not to mention the billions sunk into the bottomless Afghan hole. Overall, military spending, most of which has nothing to do with true defense, dwarfed what the rest of the world spends.
