    Just needed to share this with my liberal patriotic friends on these threads. All is not always as it apears. Keep your eye on the ball.

    And according to the administration and Fox, a recession is possible, while according to most other folks who have any economic sense, we are already in one.

    He broke every other company he was in charge of, what's new here?

    To put it into perspective, Bush never was much of a fiscal conservative. He just played one on TV at election time.

    Before you go and get all carried away, how have liberals done, being fisically responsible in Congress?

    Yes, something which used to be embraced by conservative republicans.

    8 years ago, non-interventionism and fiscal conservatism were major party platforms that got people elected to the Oval Office, now they're considered kooky and fringe thanks to Bush. It's one of my biggest beefs with Bush. It can't even be debated. The man ruined what was once a proud platform of Republicans.

    The anti-war ideology basically gets passed back and forth between each side of the aisle over the course of time and throughout different elections, so as to continually maintain the opportunity for the establishment to get continual war by confusing the voters.

    8 years ago, the republicans were anti-war and the democrats were enjoying a few of their OWN. Now, it's apparently the opposite.

    The media can be thanked for this. Well, that, and dumb voters who aren't capable of thinking for themselves, but then, that goes hand in hand with the media.

    They at least don't make it a part of their belief that they sell to US. Plus Reagan, Bush 1 and little bush are all repubs and they account for 70%.

    Please explain that since we have had a few Dem presidents in there also.

    Whether or not they try to sell they are fiscally responsible is irrelevant. 9.3 trillion dollars of debt is absurd, holding Republican or Democrats responsible is hard to do, considering split power between Congress and the President. What we should do is hold elected individuals responsible for their votes or their fiscal budgets submitted for defecit spending, individually not by party affliation. I am glad though that you acknowledge defecit spending is a problem.:clap2:
