Well they just need to increase the debt ceiling so we can see those red bars go even lower. Evil conservatives wont let us borrow more money. It's not like there will be any repercussions from borrowing so much, might as well print another 100 billion.

MichaelBored: Obama signed the 2009 budget into law and here is Video to prove it.

Obama promised that he would not sign a budget with 'earmarks' in to, but reneged on that promise. If Obama's campaign tactic is to continue to blame GW Bush then he will loose in 2012.

Anyone here that is complaining about the "Obama Budget" ever read the constitution, or take civics in school? The debt is all in the hands of congress. The president has NO ability to spend money that is not budgeted by the congress. The only thing the president can do is veto a bill with spending if it. There could not be those numbers without a two year extension of unpaid tax cuts, unpaid for medicare prescription drug programs (with no negotiating), two wars, and a military action. The congress can always say no money for X, so anything that lasts for more then current funds allow for is in the congresses hands. The congress has authorized and demanded in bills that the government do things for years in advance, then now they are going refuse to pay for what they authorized, demanded. BTW authorized often really is demanded as in it is a law that we must buy something 4 years from now.

So how about we call this the US Congress for the last 10 years budget fias

OK....this is a rather obvious point, but the president that was responsible for the the FY09 budget was Bush, not Obama, and that the FY10 budget deficit was indeed smaller than FY09.

ATL1EN: Abbreviating racial slurs is not any less racist than just typing the whole thing out.
This ban is not permanent only because you've been around for 350-odd posts without showing signs of racism before, so I can only assume this is a completely unacceptable moment of stupidity that you will doubtless rectify when you come back.

fyi, what appears as success was mostly just market bloating and was doomed to fail, and had almost nothing to do with Bush. And we are actually still facing repercussions of decisions made before this chart even starts.

fyi, it takes policies couple of years to show their true effect, clinton success was not only clinton success but also the prez before him, bush's BS is still affecting obama today, and the policies implimented under obama will not be seen until 2 years from now, plus its not one man that runs the country, that is why we have congress one man does not run the country and he can neither change its outcome, plus promises stay promises people say $hit to get elected, bush did not make everything come true when he was president either and taxes will need to be raised if we want out of this slump thats the unfortunate truth, now the republicans wont do it since they want to have their person in office next couple of years and the rest of the country will suffer for it for years to come

Nor would we 'smuggle' any weapon like that out of a country, we'd attempt to destroy it by other means, rather than risking our very best of the best.


That's they're there for Crakr, minimum (almost none) civilian casualties minimum cost. Destroy a nuclear weapon sans mushroom cloud? DEVGRU operatives DO have training in nuclear engineering.

A good example of that was the Stuxnet virus/worm that destroyed most of Iran's cyclotrons recently.


There were no fatalities from that incident.

...and IF it did happen we could send in soldiers like DEVGRU (Seal Team 6 if you prefer) to smuggle said weapon out of Iraq.

[quote"> if Saddam had got nukes and attempted to use them or give them to terrorists to use[/quote">


A very big IF as this non-liberal article will point out.

Cajun: As opposed to risking TENS OF THOUSANDS of civilian lives, both in Israel and here in the US, if Saddam had got nukes and attempted to use them or give them to terrorists to use.

It's the same risk we are running with Iran with Ahmadinutjob as their president.

I'm saying there was no justification for sending in entire corps risking THOUSANDS of civilian lives at all.

As for nuclear weapons in Iran that's in rampant speculation right now. It would be troubling if they did though.

Clinton did good yes but it was Reagan who installed Greenspan, and Clinton who kept him. But who can really blame them? Back then, "The Maestro" was worshiped like a god and criticizing him would be suicide.

Not Clinton nor Bush did anything to stop Wall Street turning into a casino.

Bush just cut taxes and started pouring money into Iraq, and let jobs flag to China. GWB poured a lot of water into the boat, but he did not make the hole.

We need to go away from investment bankings. Europe too. It used to be illegal for banks to speculate with people savings and debts. There was a very important reason for that. Banks should stick to lending.

First of all the US must get it's export going again. Used to be half the stuff we had here in EU was made in the US. And go back to capitalism. As of today, it's anarchy. If not, increasing spending to keep the economy going, will be like peeing your pants to keep warm.

Gotta love how you are so willing to give Saddam Hussein, a mass murdering genocidal bastard


I'm not saying he wasn't, but to say he had yellowcake uraniam to make nuclear warheads based on his character alone is again, a HIGHLY circumstantial assertion.

Cajun: Yeah sure, Just as the Iranians built 'only' a research reactor then imported piece-by-piece parts to build bigger reactors and cyclotrons, supposedly for peaceful purposes.

If you believe Iran too only wants peaceful nuke technology, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Gotta love how you are so willing to give Saddam Hussein, a mass murdering genocidal bastard, a pass and still vilify GW Bush as being worse than him.

Batmanners: So what you mean is that you would hate the US no matter what, Nice to now. Btw, You do know that Canada is part of NATO and heavily participated in anti-soviet bloc exercises right ?

You do also know that there are Canadian forces in Afghanistan ? and that they helped topple Saddam Hussein with the US right ?

So, little brother to the north, I suggest that if you are going to curse the USA that you are cursing your own country as well.
