    Obama’s stealing Eddie Murphy’s routine as Mr. Robinson!

    Same old hypocrisy. Benson never made a peep when Bush ran up the deficit on his wars. How many jobs did that create?

    Tax revenue is at a 50 year low as a percentage of national income. Anyone who wants to talk about the deficit without acknowledging that fact is not being honest.

    “Tax revenue is at a 50 year low”

    Maybe that has to do with Obammy’s horrible job record. When less people are working(or even bothering to look for work) and others can only find part-time, low wage jobs, it’s no mystery why tax revenue is so low.

    It certainly isn’t low because Barry has been lowering taxes.

    “There is no reason why, in a society which has reached the general level of wealth ours has, (the certainty of a given minimum of sustenance) should not be guaranteed to all without endangering general freedom; that is: some minimum of food, shelter and clothing, sufficient to preserve health. Nor is there any reason why the state should not help to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance in providing for those common hazards of life against which few can make adequate provision.” Fredrich von Hayek

    Yes, THAT von Hayek, the very guy RePubs are constantly quoting along their imagined ‘road to serfdom.’ When does ignorance begin? When we ignore the world before us.

    Why stop now?

    All the negativity is most of the problem.

    Just keep faking it.

    @Uncle Joe – Those wars fueled all sorts of jobs, mostly in the Military/Defense industry (Planes, bombs, tanks, etc.) but also in Support services: Blackwater, Food contractors, transportation, rebuilding contracts, the list goes on.

    I’m not a fan of the wars; don’t get me wrong…But personally I much prefer the government spend it’s money on goods and services rather then on passing out goodies to anyone that doesn’t feel like they are getting their fair share.

    Bush has been gone for more then 4 years now and the libs still use him as the excuse for why Obama’s failed policies haven’t improved the lot in life of the lazy and the stupid.

    You don’t see Republicans griping about Clinton and his demands that bankers lax up on loans to people who couldn’t afford them – Arguably the most culpable in the housing bubble. You don’t see us blaming LBJ for his idiotic war on poverty as the reason this country is in it’s morass. Give it a rest on the Bush front.

    The path to American greatness is paved with Freedom and a sense of Self sufficiency. The path to Mediocrity that we seem to be on now is paved with Dependence and a sense of entitlement.

    @Ms. Ima

    Then the Bush tax cuts, that undermined the Clinton/Gingrich balanced budget, SHOULD have eliminated the National Debt in no time.
    Right?

    Generational theft has been going on for many, many administrations. Blaming only Obama seems disingenuous (although the government is doing it now at an accelerated pace).

    Lisa Benson will always blame Obama for everything because she’s a tea party Republican first and a cartoonist second.


    As far as the “generational theft” goes, Ms. Benson is doing her part to disseminate a new GOP buzzword. It’s intention is to deflect the fact that there are a bunch of people TODAY who were stolen from beginning back in Reagan’s time.

    Yes because Obama is directly to blame for corporations shutting down established manufacturing facilities in the US and outsourcing to China. It’s been going on since at least the George H. W. Bush Administration, but it’s all Obama’s fault.

    @Mephistopholes

    So the military is a government jobs program? Well, great. We can spend money to kill people in other countries, but repairing and improving our own infrastructure? Why, that’s socialism!

    Lowering taxes. when they’re close to as low as they are now, has never increased tax revenue, let alone been “proven” to do so. When you lower your income, you get less money. With math ignorance like this, no wonder you’re a conservative!

    @mikefive

    Actually, that’s not true. The deficit has been halved under Obama, when you compare it to Bush. The amount the government spends per citizen has also been lowered. It’s usually Republicans who have run up debt, if you look at history.
