@rzimdars: My numbers come from the 2014 economic report of the president Page 391 but your numbers will suffice. The Bush tax cuts went fully into effect in 2003. After a peak deficit in 04 they steadily came down until the mortgage crisis in 2008.
No nonsense and nothing faulty.I know it was a battle cry for the left during 2012 election but these tax cuts did not cause the mortgage crisis.
BTW, thanks for posting those numbers and proving my point!posted @ Saturday, July 19, 2014 - 18:26
The "blame Bush crowd" is a superbly researched source. Surely you don't rely on Newsmax and William Kristol???
Nope. I deal in facts. Look up Economic Report of the President.
And TGB, in your post above, why did you fail to factor in the money Bush borrowed to finance the Iraq War,
You are correct we will be paying for that but we will be paying for Obama's debt far longer.
And Snarky nailing my argument? Come on. His bit about Carter, Clinton, and the Arab world is amateur hour partisan politics.,
As opposed to your enlightened non-partisan politics??
I see you're a part of the 'blame America' crowd too.posted @ Saturday, July 19, 2014 - 17:23
@snarkydude: Well Snarky, since you know what I do for a living, would you be so kind to tell me what you do for a living? I'm pretty sure you are not a professor of history, given your apparent limited knowledge of Middle East history.
Come on, shed at least part of your cloak of anonymity!
Hey Nancy, what's your line of work? Snarky doesn't seem to like music. Do you?
No matter who he is or what he does, he nailed you with his rebuttal. (As did Nancy)posted @ Saturday, July 19, 2014 - 16:07
waging the Afghan and Iraq Wars while simultaneously cutting taxes ... crashed our country.
The Bush tax cuts increased federal revenues and reduced annual deficits until the mortgage crisis ( which had its origins before Bush as snarky stated) hit.
I would expect that a professor could distinguish fact from propaganda spouted by the 'blame Bush' crowd. But then again, I would expect that from our president too.
Come on professor, do the research!posted @ Saturday, July 19, 2014 - 15:57
the usual amnesia
Like the fact that Obama was against the individual mandate in 2008.

The lack of victories for Obama is of his own doing.posted @ Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 09:45
Bush was told by his first two Treasury Secretaries that his tax cuts were slashing the revenue to the bone and would result in massive deficits. He fired them. Every economist worth their salt predicted that these tax cuts along with two unfunded wars, and Medicare Part D would bring us to our knees. And these predictions have been proven to be correct.
You can repeat this crap all you want but it simply is not true. After the Bush tax cuts, revenues to the federal treasury increased and annual deficits were on the way down until the housing crisis hit. Go look it up; google economic report of the president and while you're at it google Laffer curve.
And even with the housing crisis Bush's debt does not even compare to obama's debt. Not even close and we have 2 more years to go.

all sides were responsible. All sides had embassy attacks. All sides had scandals. All sides had deficits.
...so why do tea party candidates only recall one side?
What do Reid, Pelosi, and obama recall? Please give me one issue where these clowns took responsibility and did not blame republicans. Just one!!posted @ Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 10:54

If she wants to go back to the old system of buying cheap insurance that really does not cover all expenses, then that means that she wants to dump those possibly uncovered expenses on others.
[/quote] Like what? birth control or treatment for drug addiction? She should not be forced to pay for coverage she does not need.
The whole other question is why US health care is so expensive, [/quote] Tort reform would bring about real savings but obama and the dems ignored this and other good ideas and crammed this mess down our throats. obamacare is going to cost us trillions and according to the CBO we will never be under 30 million unisured.

Love the way the Repugs are spinning this. Years ago, my orthopedic surgeon and I had a talk about when he was going to retire. His wife was only in her fifties and had Alzheimer's . He said he couldn't retire until she got on Medicare, because she was uninsurable and he couldn't lose the healthcare insurance he had through his practice. He could afford health insurance, he just couldn't get it for an Alzheimer's patient. ACA makes insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions. He worked many years longer than he wanted because of this. There are many sixty year olds who aren't old enough for Medicare, and they work much longer at very hard jobs they no longer love. Now, they can retire, get affordable healthcare. Many a young person has stayed at bad jobs because of the insurance. That is what this report says. This should open up jobs down the line. So it's a win win win situation. Now, Republican hacks, spin it!
My mother has a friend who is a wonderful, hard working person who loves her job. But she has been thru the exchange and cannot afford the options she is eligible for because of high premiums and high deductibles. She would have to quit the job she loves to qualify for a subsidy.
The head of the CBO very clearly stated that obamacare is a dis-incentive to work. To pretend that this will be a positive thing and only affect the behavoir of older workers is ridiculous and not the reality.
Who did you say was doing the spinning??posted @ Friday, February 7, 2014 - 11:52
@Logical: Give me a link to that poll and give me an example of a lie told on fox.
The best example of brain dead followers are people who still support obama (a group that is getting smaller every day).
This is your typical post: too much emotion & not enough LOGIC!!!!posted @ Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 11:25
The majority of Americans do not like this law and even more will dislike it when the employer mandate kicks in. And just today the CBO says that obamacare will lead to 2,000,000 fewer workers.
I am glad, though, that you found someone that is benefitting because that's gonna be like spotting a northern hairy nosed wombat!posted @ Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 17:26
I heard terrorists were responsible for the attack on Benghazi. But that is too simple. Somehow it has to be tied into our next election.
It was a big deal in the last election. The administration that is supposedly transparent did everything it could to delay, deflect blame and shield obama from this fiasco for re-election purposes.posted @ Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 14:22

@Logical: Sorry I missed your reply yesterday and i want to help you with your misguided thought process.
1. After the Bush tax cuts in 2003 tax revenues went up and deficits went down every year until 2008. Google the latest Economic Report of the President. It is there clearly in black and white!!
2. What part of obama increased the number of troops don't you understand??
I believe that it is you that is full of it ... full of obsession/hatred and it blinds you from reality. Maybe some therapy might help.posted @ Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 13:05
Maybe there's something wrong with your short term memory because you seem to have forgotten what's happened the last 5 years like ...
74% of casualties in afghanistan have occurred after obama ordered troop increases.
obamacare will cost far more and be much more destructive than medicare part D.
Bush (or any other president) cannot begin to compare with obama's deficit spending.
Come to think of it your longer term memory is not that good either because the Bush tax cuts increased revenue to the treasury and deficits were steadily declining until the home mortgage crisis hit.posted @ Friday, January 24, 2014 - 10:11

I find it very disturbing that the GOP is working so hard to try to make the ACA fail.
It's failing pretty miserably without any help from the Repubs.
After all, it's based on Romney Care so it's really a Republican idea.
The Mass. bill was 70 pages long; The obamacare bill was 2000 pages long and has added over 10,500 pages of regulations to the federal register ... so far! Romneycare was a bi-partisan effort; obamacare was a totally partisan effort. Romneycare does prove that healthcare reform at the state level is much more effective.
The current GOP is clearly more interested in gaining political power rather than doing what's best for the American people.
obamacare has brought 1/6 of the economy under those 10,500 pages of federal regulation so it is the democrats who are centralizing political power!posted @ Monday, November 18, 2013 - 10:30

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
