    Obama attacks Bush policies in Bush's home state

    AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – President Barack Obama attacked the economic policies of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush in Bush's home state on Monday as evidence of the way Republicans would operate if given power in November 2 U.S. congressional elections.

    At a fund-raising event for Democrats in Dallas, where Bush now lives, Obama said the former president's "disastrous" policies had driven the U.S. economy into the ground and turned budget surpluses into deficits.

    Obama defended his repeated references to Bush's policies, saying they were necessary to remind Americans of the weak economy he inherited from Bush in January 2009.

    "The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?" Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring to Bush's eight years as president.

    In reminding voters about the policies of the unpopular Bush, Obama is trying to protect his fellow Democrats' majorities in Congress and limit anticipated Republican gains.

    Blaming dat BOOOOOOOSH and calling Americans "Stupid & Racist" are all the Dems have left at this point. Hopefully Americans are sick of that tired chit and give em the boot in 2010 & 2012. I guess we'll see though. Get out and vote!

    :lol::lol: He needs more than a tissue--:lol::lol: The only person to greet Obama at the airport was republican govenor Rick Perry. Democrats running for office in Texas--DODGED--Obama at every single opportunity. Even at the campaign rally stop--democrat politicians refused to get on the stage with Obama--:lol::lol:--"and many didn't even show up at the rally."

    1. Taking over the auto industry in the country.
    2. Health Care--that the majority of Americans DO NOT WANT.
    3. Growing our government by another .25% or 1/4 since the day he took office.
    4. Breaking every single promise he made on the campaign trail.
    5. Not extending the Bush tax cuts--that will not only hit the wealthy in this country--but will raise capital gains taxes--which is a middle class tax HIKE--which includes hitting seniors on their dividend checks that depend on those to make ends meet each month.
    6. Immigration--suinig the state of Arizona.
    7. Driving this country into unsustainable debt in his "flood the basement economic policy."

    That's just a few items I can think of in a nano-second.

    Now up to 12.4 TRILLION without the cost of health-care or stimulus bill jr.

    Wrong.
    The first idea is that Obama needs to own up to his policies that have been in place for nearly 2 years and have failed to end this recession.
    The second idea is that increasing taxes and regulation will not help the economy recover.
    The third idea is that spending to avoid bankruptcy is like fucking to avoid pregnancy: only a moron like Joe Biden would believe that.
    The fourth idea is that "stimulus spending" is a failure and changing tax and regulation laws to change behavior towards more risk taking and production is what will turn this country around.
