    You can't blame them for who they are.
    They will say they did no such thing.
    They will blame it all on the Bush tax cuts and the wars.
    And the media will back them all the way.

    It's our fault if we let them get away with it.
    We need to win elections...

    I often wonder why Democrats forget that their party controlled the House and Senate the last 2 years of the Bush Presidency.

    ..... and lately the first 2 years of the Obama Presidency.














    Well, not really....:lol:

    The republicans, it's all their fault, especially those blockheads in the House.

    How is this screwed up? Let me count the ways. First the democratic congress could pass nothing that would add to the debt that the republicans did not approve.

    The Senate republicans filibustered everything that the congress was opting to pass. Even should they have been able to pass anything Bush would have vetoed it. Healthcare got passed by reconciliation which requires only a majority vote

    The congress became republican in 2010. Therefore they initiated no bills that they did not approve and they shot down those initiated by the democrats.

    Democrats had no real opportunity to pass things Republicans did not want. Simple as that.

    Second Obama took office Jan 20 2009. The debt, as he entered office was almost 12 and a half trillion.

    Bush carried a whole helluva lot of funding off books. This included funding the wars. Obama promised to put this back on the books and he did, thereby inheriting well over a trillion of the Bush debt.

    Other than that you are spot on!!!!!

    "No compromise, un-American GOP" (TIME)...

    Averting a Second Pub Great Depression, and saving millions from homelessness is expensive....great job, Pubs!!

    Dems have had real control of congress for 24 working days, not since 2/2010, and lockstep, country be damned Pubs allow NOTHING, even Pub style jobs bills...a disgrace- and fear monger nonstop with a giant BS propaganda machine...
