Sick and Tired of their Lies

If you’re like me then you are sick and tired of Liberal after Liberal getting on Television and proclaiming Obama inherited a huge deficit from Bush. Well it’s time to set the record straight for all those amongst us through no fault of their own that are swallow this bogus argument. After all most of them are the product of this nation’s inferior public propaganda machine known as public education and since their release into the real world haven’t exercised the initiative to educate themselves by watching FOX News.. But having said all that here goes!

So for those that swallow this nonsense, here’s a short civics lesson. Budgets do not come from the White House, they come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled the budget process for 2008, the last year George Bush was in Power. So if the Media Darling; the Messiah; the Chosen One; the Cry Baby to end all Cry Babies inherited a hugh deficit it was based on a budget enacted by Pelosi and Reid; the same two Frito Banditos that are presently stealing this country blind! In fact for those of you on the left that are even remotely connected to reality here’s another tidbit of truth for you to handle; if you can handle the truth. In 2008, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush’s attempt at fiscal control by passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barrack Hussein Obama could take ascend to the throne following which they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

They; Pelosi, Reid and their Gang of Socialists, are also responsible for the runaway spending associated with the 2009 and 2010 budgets and are too afraid to even propose a budget for 2011 until after the election!. And where was Barack Boo-Hoo-Hoo-Blame-Bush Obama during the period he’s now crying about? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and signed the omnibus bill as President to complete the 2009 budget.

Now Liberals, if you can hold on to reality for just a bit longer. I know it taxes your Feeling Based Libidos to deal with hard core facts instead of cute little rhymes or carefully edited media sound bites upon which your entire political portfolio is comprised but remember what the deficits looked like during that period known to most of you as the Dark Ages; the era before America ascended into the Divine Light as cast by the Supreme Being Himself; Barrack Hussein Zeus Obama!

If the Democrats inherited any deficit it was the 2007 deficit, the last year the Republicans controlled Congress. I refer those of you that missed it the first time around to the Bold Type Underlined Passage contained in my second paragraph. This 2007 budget was the lowest in 5 consecutive years and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then as president I have pushed for legislation which has resulted in the expansion that deficit four-fold since January 20th, 2009.

We are not too shocked about yet ANOTHER lie spewing from the liar-in-chief. This man is such a mental midget, the only thing he is consistent on is hating America, defending the muslims, and blaming Bush. I swear to God I may end up having a stroke before this asshole is out of office!!!

Partisan, rather than researching again and fact finding, let me simply post what I really want to say in a general way.

Before Dems took control of Congress, the national debt had already doubled under the GOP congress and Bush Whitehouse.

The deficit was also already in the hundreds of billions of dollars before Dems took control of Senate and House. When Clinton left office, the USA was spending 1.5 Trillion per year. Under Bush and GOP controlled congress, that number exploded to almost 3 trillion per year!

Let's be clear, BOTH PARTIES are guilty of overspending and running up massive debt. While the GOP did a catastrophic job on our finances, both parties are to blame. The challenge is that once a govt program or spending iniatitive is created, it is funded forever. We never ask "Do we still need to spend that money?"

The largest expenditure for the USA is the $1 trillion for our military which is an absurd amount more than any other country spends. Before anyone corrects me and says "it's only $780 Billion" let me explain that many parts of the military budget fall under different agencies. For example, nuclear weapons are built under the dept of energy.

Neither Republicans nor Dems are trying are seriously trying to reduce military spending. The only 2 in all of congress addressing the issue is Barney Frank - Dem in MA and Ron Paul - R in TX.

You absolutely have to remove money from politics. How is a politician going to cut wasteful military spending when their campaigns are funded by the companies that benefit from the wasteful spending.

Which brings me to a partial solution. Support the Fair Elections Now Act which is a campaign finance reform bill. So far, 155 Dem co-sponsors and only 2 Republicans which begs the question: Why are Republicans fighting against the interest of the people?

First off there was a little trigger event that exploded the budget and collapsed our economy; 911. Bush held this country together by not utilizing this crisis as this present regime is doing with the Gulf Spill. Instead of Banning all flying he governed the country back from the brink. This Socialist Clown is using the Gulf oil Spill to Capitalize on his Cap and Tax Initiative which will cripple this Carbon Based Economy.

Yes war cost money and I for one felt we had no choice but to respond. Those Overseas Contingency Operatives as this Regime prefers to refer to them as instead of what they are Islamic Jihadist attacked us. They attacked us every bit as much as Japan did when they bombed Pearl Harbor. Now I know there is no particular country that harbors all of them but the Bush Initiative to draw them into Iraq proved to be a correct one. We now have a stable country which is no longer a threat to us despite the efforts of Reid, Bidden and even the Emperor himself all who proclaimed the war was lost. That’s why Bush’s budgets were as high as they were.

This Regime is well on its way to bankrupting this country and I for one believe it is their objective. As Saul Alinsky outlined in his Rules for Radicals; in order to establish the new world order you first have to destroy the order that is in place. No sane person could possibly push for Healthcare Reform, Cap and Tax and Tax Increases during a recession. No, it is plain and simple; this is his way of redistributing the wealth!

I’ll agree Bush proved to be less of a fiscal conservative than I would have preferred but I categorically disagree BOTH PARTIES are guilty of overspending and running up massive debt equally. This present Regime is based on Socialism pure and simple. Their main objective is to redistribute the wealth and they intend to do so through the implementation of their Social Agenda. I worked hard (37 years) for what I have set aside to retire on and am not willing to share it with anyone.

As far as the money we spend on our military I believe it is the best money we spend. I support any and all military spending. It was because of it we defeated the USSR in the Cold War and the world is a much safer place today. If we do not stay ahead of our enemies; the Islamic Jihadist, they will most assuredly destroy us. As far as I’m concerned back on the Social Programs; what has all that money bought us? The city of Detroit is a prime example of what Welfare does to people. Remember that old adage Give a man a fish and he eats for a day but Teach a Man to Fish and he eats for life. Well the people in Detroit never learned to fish as a result of the Welfare State….

So my friend, in my world the facts are plain and simple; Democrats are Bad and Republicans are good. I know there are a few bad Republicans but there are no good Democrats. Look at how they all fell into lock step when pressured into Pelosi’s Light Brigade come Health Care Time! I rest my case!

anyone that deals in absolutes is typically not very rational. I don't think we can come to agreement. The fact that you think the current administration 'wants' to destroy the country is a pretty insane belief. Whether you agree with the president or not, anyone who works hard enought and endures the sacrifice of becoming president of the US loves their country.

The fact that you can't see wasteful spending in the military budget is just blind.

40k troops in germany for what? 25k troops in Japan for what? A war in Iraq that congress voted to go ONLY BECAUSE IRAQ HAD WMD's...which turned out to be F A L S E!!!

It's funny you mention the cold war. It goes right along with the GOP mantra of spend, spend, spend. Let us not forget that it was the 'father of our debt' (AKA Ron Reagan) who took the national debt from 700 billion into 3 trillion. Remember some of his failed plans? (Star Wars, Trickle down economics, etc)

Can you provide concrete factual statements from credible sources that cap and trade, HC reform, etc are bad for the economy? HCR just gave insurance companies 30 million new customers and it will reduce the debt by a number in the trillions. Maryland just came out and said that HCR will save the state 843 BILLION.

Cap and trade was first proposed in this country by Reagan (it was actually an idea from one of his CZAR'S...yes REAGAN HAD CZAR'S). Reagan's plan was enacted by Bush and it was a huge success.

Just the fact alone that rather than present rational facts, you present fear tactics is a sign that you really have no backing for your 'narrative'


partisan patriot 6 years ago

Absolute fact, Pelosi whipped every Democrat into submission when she needed the votes to deliver Health Care to her Emperor. Remember Bart Stupak; Mr. I will not cave in and sacrifice my moral objection to abortion yet when it came down to the final votes needed; Judas Ascarius Stupak sold his sole for a worthless Presidential Decree that wasn’t worth the paper it was written on nor the snake oil in which it was written. That my friend is a logical explanation for why I am against all Democrats. Even the so called most moderate amongst them will cave in and vote Radical Party Line when needed.

We can never come to agreement. This president’s policies are destroying this country and I do not believe they are all by accident. Redistribution of wealth has failed everywhere it has been tried and all his policies are based on redistribution. That my friend is no accident!

I’ll give you this; there is wasteful spending in the military budget but I would prefer to go after the billions wasted on the something for Nothing Social Programs before I go after the Military.

We’ll never agree on Ronal Wilson Reagan; to me and my fellow conservatives he saved the world by defeating the Soviet Union with Star Wars then saved this country with trickledown economics. Fundamentally we just are on the opposite end of the spectrum; I believe individuals as well as Business do better when allowed to keep most of what they earn. But as he slipped up and admitted to Joe the Plumber, he feels we’re all better off when we spread the wealth around. The achievements of this society did not come about through de-incentivizing efforts through higher taxes. By the way Keynesian economics does not work either

For Cap and Tax; go to Newt Gingridges American Solutions for the real cost of Cap and Tax. As for Health Care Reform the CBO came back after they were forced to score the bill based on the erroneous assumptions that medicaid cuts would be made as well as other so called savings none of which could be substantiated then more recently have come back with a more complete report reflecting an actual increase in the cost associated with this piece of legislation.

I am indeed afraid as I see this nation turning from Capitalism to Socialism and if you refuse to see that then it is you my friend that are blinded by the light emitting from your chosen Messiah!

partisan, we actually agree on probably a lot, you just have your facts confused. I'm not going to try and change your mind, but I suggest that you try and use non profit sources for news.

I do hope to see or in this case hear from you again. Isn’t it funny when you have the courage to cling to your convictions you actually believe with all your heart you are the one that has the facts straight and your opponent is the one that is confused. Well my new found friend I suggest you not depend so heavily on National Public Radio or the other so called non profits; they are also liberal biased. Of course you could be listening to CNN or MSNBC which are also non-profits according to their ratings.

Touché my friend…

LRCBlogger 6 years ago

Partisan, if you do hope to hear some facts on the case, I'm happy to present. FYI...If NPR is bias to you, I believe that means reality has a liberal bias. NPR is listener funded (mostly) and does not have to cater to advertisers. Take FOX, MSNBC, etc. They know their audience and put out stories to cater to them. Also remember that BILLIONS and almost Trillions are spent on campaign ads. Fox is not going to do anything to upset the GOP who will reward them with massive media buys. Same for MSNBC and Dems. NPR has no allegiance except to their listeners...food for thought.

Going off what you said: "Absolute fact, Pelosi whipped every Democrat into submission when she needed the votes to deliver Health Care"

- Not true, in fact, many Dems supported healthcare decades before Nancy Pelosi. Further, a lot of Dems wanted a much stronger bill with a public option. In the end, we got the conservatives option for HCR. If you take out the individual mandate and coverage for the poor, this could easily be a bill written by GOP.

You said Bart Stupak caved on his morals and referred to abortion. FACT The HCR strenghtens abortion laws and bans federal dollars from being used to pay for abortions. Stupak only voted for HCR once this tougher stance on abortion was added. The GOP called him a 'baby killer' to stir lies and rhetoric that somehow HCR supported abortion. If you read up, you'll notice most recently the Catholic Bishops praised the tough stance HCR has taken against abortion. The HCR bill did nothing to weaken current abortion laws or regs. If you are anti abortion, the HCR bill is on your side. You'll also notice all of the pro-choice groups are ticked off about the HCR bill due to it's tougher stance on abortion....you had your facts backward on this.

Regarding Reagan, I will agree that many of his policies helped this country sustain a long period of prosperity. However, a large reason he acommplished this is because he exploded the national debt (He trippled it). It's easy to lower unemployment and create jobs when you throw tons of govt money at the problem. The problem I had with Reagan is he never had a plan or agenda to repay that massive amount of spending and it has continued ever since...hence his title "father of our debt"

Lastly, your comment on "something for Nothing Social Programs "...how about this, let's look at the largest social program: Medicare. I'm all for cutting medicare but when Obama proposed this, the GOP jumped down his throat and said he's "attacking seniors", etc. The Medicare system is an unfunded liability that is enormously out of control. BUT, I would never want to "do away" with a system that helps millions of children and seniors get the help they need. If you want to make cuts to our largest social program, contact your GOP representative and ask them to engage Dems in a real conversation.

Partisan, I love hearing opposing views. I hope we can discuss civilly because I believe most people want the same thing (in general). I truly believe both sides of the political aisle are severly flawed. If you truly believe it is evil Dems vs the savior GOP, your in for a big surprise if they get back into power (think GW and the GOP controlled congress starting war in Iraq, exploding national Debt, lifting privacy laws so they can easedrop on every american, etc)

I’ll offer up two names to prove my case as to NPR’s liberal bias; Juan Williams and Mara Liasson; Ms. Liasson is the National Political Correspondent for NPR and Williams is a political commentator for NPR. These two lefties go up against Fred Barnes and Charles Krauthammer Monday through Friday nights at 5:40PM as the FOX All Stars. So my friend NPR definitely has a liberal bias; neither of these two ever met an Obama Program they didn’t like!

I’ll give you Fox is more likely to show the Republican side of an issue rather than the Democratic Spin. However when put into perspective you have FOX on the right vs. ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, Queen Oprah and the View. I would say the odds are heavily skewed in favor of the Left.

OK Pelosi only had to whip the so called moderates into shape; the Blue Dogs if you will. That goes to prove my point even more. Regardless how conservative any Democrat appears on the issue during the campaign he or she will always cave in and vote Party Line when it comes down to crunch time. That’s why as a Conservative if you’re dumb enough to vote for a Democrat; any Democrat you get what you deserve.

You may believe that BS about HCR strengthening abortion laws and bans federal dollars from being used to pay for abortions BUT I DO NOT. These fanatics on the left got what they wanted and Judas Iscariot Stupak delivered it to them. If he really believed that about strengthening the abortion laws he would not be quitting. That is proof positive he knows he was duped by the Snake Oil Salesman’s Presidential Decree.

As far as the Catholic Bishops praising the so called tough stance HCR has taken against abortion; I am a Catholic and I refuse to give one dime to support the Catholic Bishops. They have long since sold out by allowing Nancy Pelosi to go unchallenged when she blasphemed on national TV outright lying as to what the Church’s Position was on Abortion. She directly contradicted the church’s stance and was not challenged in any way. My facts are not backwards; I just don’t fall for the liberal spin. As a practicing Catholic of 63 years I know what the church believes and no Rogue Bishops speak for me.

Pro choice groups just like Single Payer Government Option groups will always be ticked off with any bill that doesn’t completely capitulate to their Secular Socialists Views. The fact they are not completely satisfied in no way deters me from my opinion this HCR bill was a disaster!

At least we agree Reagan’s policies helped this country sustain a long period of prosperity. They also helped us recover from Jimmy Carter Stagflation which had crippled this country. Let’s end the discussion there.

You know as well as I do Medicare and Social Security are both the third rail in politics. Obama wasn’t serious about cutting Medicare any more than his predecessors have been. He only needed these bogus cuts so the CBO would score his Obamination of a Health Care Bill favorably.

The sad truth is that a lot of people, and I've got quite a few of them in my family, simply do not engage themselves in politics. They never make an effort to formulate in their heads the whole story. They listen to the rhetoric. They listen to their other welfare friends. And they decide that what they hear is the gospel.

And so the cycle goes on and on.

partisan, I didn't realize your age which brings up a question that directly affects you. Seeing that you are for the principals of Reagan and limited govt, I'm assuming you will join the crusade to end medicare?

After all, isn't medicare an 'entitlement?'

Let me be clear, I'm a supporter of Medicare but I'm just questioning how deep your conservative roots grow.

Ronald Reagan: “If you don’t stop Medicare and I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”


partisan patriot 6 years ago

LRC

I didn’t realize you were such a fan of Reagan but since you obviously are here’s another Reaganism you no doubt will agree with; “In this present crisis government is not the solution to our problems, Government is the problem.” Yes my friend I am a big fan of Ronald Wilson Reagan but like everyone I believe the programs that I could benefit from are not the problem. Let me further explain that lest you think I am just another greedy old fart.

By the way I am not on Medicare because the company I worked for allowed me to carry my insurance into retirement by continuing to pay my pre retirement co-pay but lest I digress; Medicare serves a purpose and is one of the few social programs wherein worthless able bodied people cannot scam the system. Older people that worked all their lives need some help as they enter the retirement years and this help should come from the government they supported all those years through confiscatory taxes. Now on the other hand the Social Programs that remain in place just to keep Democrats in power are evil in nature and only serve to destroy the family nucleus as well as the human dignity of their recipients. Case in point; welfare destroys the human dignity of its recipients; the more illegitimate children you have the more money you receive; next the school lunch programs; the aforementioned welfare payments are for the supposed purpose of feeding the illegitimate children yet additional tax dollars go to feed those same children breakfast, lunch and in some cases they take food home over the weekend.

My conservative roots run as deep as my visceral Hatred for Socialism. Having said that I will leave you with another quote from one of Regan’s closest friends and allies; Lady Margret Thatcher; The problem with Socialism is you eventually run out of other people’s money.

Partisan, so who should be the one that determines which social programs are valid and which are "evil in nature and only serve to destroy the family nucleus"

If you are on the side of Reagan, he disagreed with you and said that medicare is evil...so did Bob Dole, so did many other conservatives. Keep electing TEA party candidates and you may see then end of medicare.

Also, to say that medicare can't be scammed is a joke, there are scams exposed all the time.

Lastly, Pop, I know you jest in 'keeping score" but it is important for conservatives to know this...It is not about winning or losing, it is about bringing representation back to the American People. The party of "no" filibustered a small business jobs bill on Thursday that they wrote because the Dems suddenly favored it. Conservatives have become so concerned with "winning" they are not bothering to examine the destructive ways in which they are trying to win.


partisan patriot 6 years ago

LRC

Good question, who should be the one that determines which social programs are valid and which are "evil in nature and only serve to destroy the family nucleus"; the answer to that one is simple; the ones who pay for the programs. Taxpayers should decide how and on whom their money is spent!

The same analogy should apply to those that vote; if you have no stake in the system you shouldn’t be allowed to participate. If this were the case there would never be another Democrat elected!

You keep trying to put me in an all or nothing box; if you like Regan then this or that. Well my friend Regan liked Tip O’Neil and I personally hated his Liberal Socialists Guts.

As for Bob Dole he goes down along side John McCain as the worst two Republican Presidential candidates of all time. They were both great patriotic men and deserving of our praise and respect but they were also both terrible candidates. They left their fighting spirit on the Battlefield.

Dear LRC,

Glad you got the joke, but I have to say if you really believed that it is important to bring back representation to the American people then you would be more inclined to be critical of the current administration. The government is taking over our lives and that can only mean trouble. Also I am curious about one thing. Obama's popularity is at an all time low. He and his fellow Dems have spit on the wishes of the American people. The HCR bill was not popular and all the bail-outs which have done virtually nothing to spur the economy have also been unpopular. Clearly, Obama is marching to a tune that is completely out of sync with the American people. Are you bothered by his indifference to our needs and wishes?
