Teapublicans pretend that history began in January of 2009. Bush left economic messes, military messes, VA messes… he was the complete package! And now, if anybody should have the nerve to point out how Bush.. and the Teapublican party.. have set Obama up for more than just his own failures, well, the Fox phony “They blame Bush for everything!” comes out of the closet.
Just curious… if Bush isn’t to blame, why haven’t the Teapublicans included him in their party activities? He’s poison that way. We ALL know he was a disaster, we just disagree on whether that disaster keeps on hurting us. Well, the Gulf oil spill was 4 years ago, and yet the damage continues.

richard… I think he’s doing a Steven Colbert.
$6 Trillion.. and 6,809 dead Americans, in wars of choice.. with zero benefit , apparently aren’t enough for Danziger.
We now spend more on “defense” – in constant dollars – than we did at the height of the Cold War.
We can’t afford to build more $1 Trillion weapons systems with no mission. We can’t afford to be the world cop.

While I agree – somewhat – with the premise of the ‘toon, I have to point out that the millennials aren’t very engaged in the political process. They need to be more active to protect their own interests. And they aren’t.

What a crock! The US has thousands of nuclear warheads, control of the seas, control of the skies, all the high-tech gadgets that money can buy. Obama is dealing from a position of enormous strength, and this ’toon ignores that. This ’toon, however, does feed red meat to the wilfully ignorant Fox News(?) types.

Note to Ramirez…and you other losers….Rep. Elijah Cummings released the transcripts of the committee hearing. The guy who did the IRS targeting was a conservative Repub who says the White House knew nothing about the whole thing. Issa is lying. Again. http://www.politicususa.com/2013/06/18/full-transcript-reveals-darrell-issa-lied-obama-involvement-irs-scandal.html
Gee.. first thing I notice is the Black. The “birds of a feather” are all black. Interesting. Also interesting is that these non-scandals are old news and debunked, and Ramirez is still trying to sell them.

I really like things that go Zooooooooooom!
Isn’t it the god-given right of every Murikan to have things that go Zoooooooom?
26 Blue Angel pilots have died in those shows. 19 Thunderbird pilots have died.
The shows cost about $200,000 each… and that’s beyond the cost of the fuel, planes, maintenance, and crews.
The schedules of the Thunder Birds and Blue Angels, alone, for this year include 61 total shows.
The basic acquisition price of an F/A-18 A Hornet is approximately $21 million per plane. However, after being specially equipped, each plane costs $56 million.
The US Navy budgets about $40 million a year to maintain the squadron.
It costs $13,344,000 in fuel alone (based on 2010 fuel prices) to just train one Commanding Officer and $85,957,200 in fuel for the training of the 14 other pilots.
According to the Boston Phoenix, in 2007, annual salaries for 114 support personnel cost $5.6 million. Pilot salaries cost approximately $12 million annually.
It costs roughly $20 million in fuel expenses for shows (rehersals and performances, based on 2010 jet fuel price) a year.
Plus, it costs approximately $2 million on staff lodging and meals to do these shows each year.
I would imagine the Thunderbirds cost a similar amount.
But… they do go Zooooooom! I gots to have me some Zoooooom!

I know science is unimportant to the deniers, but 97% of scientists believe in man-made climate change. You stick with that 3%! What does science know after all.
" Forget the four out of five dentists who recommend Trident…. Try the 97 out of 100 scientists that believe in man-made climate change.
This data comes from a new survey out this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The study found that 97 percent of scientific experts agree that climate change is “very likely” caused mainly by human activity.
The report is based on questions posed to 1,372 scientists. Nearly all the experts agreed that it is “very likely that anthropogenic greenhouse gases have been responsible for most of the unequivocal warming of the Earth’s average global temperature in the second half of the twentieth century.”
Click here for an interactive graphic that shows how global warming occurs.
As for the 3 percent of scientists who remain unconvinced, the study found their average expertise is far below that of their colleagues, as measured by publication and citation rates."

When Bush passed the presidency to Obama, he handed Obama a huge place of s__t sandwiches, and now people are complaining that Obama is eating them fast enough. Let’s not forget the two biggest causes of our deficits are the two Bush Wars and the Bush tax cuts for the rich. The Congressional Budget Office says so…
Domestic spending is NOT what has caused this…. see the chart ….
I have posted this several times in several places, and nobody has ever tried to refute it. The RW only has their viral emails they send back and forth to each other and an alternate reality in which they simply parrot Rush and Fox.
