    nothing but another stimulus
    the obs lost after his re election had little to do with Sandy as NY actually added jobs and Pen and Ohio led the layoffs

    Ah yes. Fifty Billion to help with the rebuilding of the states that were hit so hard with Sandy. And how many billions did we give to Haliburton and Cheney in Iraq?

    And there is another major disaster shaping up. If we are fortunate, we will get some major snow this winter, if not, another multi-billion dollar disaster on the way.

    Drought threatens to close Mississippi to barges

    The river depth is 15 to 20 feet less than normal, now about 13 feet deep in many places. If it dips to around 9 feet, rock pinnacles at two locations make it difficult, if not impossible, for barges to pass. Hydrologists for the National Weather Service predict the Mississippi will reach the 9-foot mark by Dec. 9.

    The situation worsened last week when the Army Corps of Engineers began reducing the outflow from an upper Missouri River dam in South Dakota, where a group of experts said Thursday that the worst U.S. drought in decades had intensified over the last week.

    The flow is gradually being cut by more than two-thirds by Dec. 11 as part of an effort to ease the effects of the drought in the northern Missouri River basin.

    Lawmakers from Mississippi River states are frustrated with the corps' action and even requested a presidential emergency declaration to overturn it. So far, the White House has not responded.

    On Thursday, Army Assistant Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy told Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois and some of his colleagues from Iowa and Minnesota that the corps would consider cutting the amount of water held back from the Mississippi.

    BTW BHO is still giving Halliburton plenty
    no bid
    Bloomberg Businessweek: KBR Inc. [aka Halliburton] was selected for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011 for military support services in Iraq, the Army said.The Army announced its decision yesterday only hours after the Justice Department said it will pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of taking kickbacks from two subcontractors on Iraq-related work. The Army also awarded the work to KBR over objections from members of Congress, who have pushed the Pentagon to seek bids for further logistics contracts.
    If you had any idea what all of that was about and what it takes to be on the govt bid list to make 3% profit in war zone, you would see those efforts as close to hero work you can do without being shot at with a uniform on

    Now what does another stimulus have to do with Iraq and the victory we had there?
    And what does the entire war costing about the same as the failed Obama stimulus have to do with any of this?

    BHO raised GWB base line budget by about 500 billlion in 12 weeks in 2009 and sense has blamed it on GWB
    not to mention the UE numbers that have dropped revenue 400 billlion

    This is just another 50 billion added to that, that you and the lib media will keep blaming GWB

    You Libs really need to realize how bad it is for you in life to deal with problems like this.
    The house on fire will not be resolved by blaming GWB for it burning down

    Elvis let us take a look at the last GWB/GOP budget shall we?
    Submitted by George W. Bush
    Submitted to 109th Congress
    Total revenue $2.57 trillion
    Total expenditures $2.73 trillion
    Deficit $161 billion
    Debt $8.95 trillion
    Website http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=10014 Congressional Budget Office

    Now lets look at BHO first budget in 2009 (he signed it adding 140 billion in the budget GWB would not sign, he then add the failed stimulus and the last 50% of tarp GWB was not going to use, its 100% his and the Dem parties. about 600 billion as the info shows)


    | Total_Revenue = $2.7 trillion (requested)
    $2.105 trillion (enacted)[1]
    | Total_Expenditures = $3.107 trillion (requested)
    $3.518 trillion (enacted)[1] | spending = | tax_cut = | debt_payment = | deficit = $407 billion (requested)
    $1.413 trillion (enacted)[1] | debt = $12.867455 trillion (requested) | bill = | bill_link = | url = http://www.gpoaccess.gov/USbudget/fy09/hist.html US Government Printing Office }}

    Now I had an issue with the 162 billion dollar deficit in 2007 but with 2 wars goiung on and Iraq at its highest peak, I knew it would get close to being balanced once we won
    your comparing that to the 1.5 trillion we have now as the same?
    Okay, before you make a fool of yourself again as you did when you voted for BHO and repeating the same old lies the got him re elected
    do your DD bud
