    The Tax cuts were recently extended for all Americans. I assume since you seem so concerned about the debt that you were fully in favor or not extending the tax cuts for anybody.

    since you clearly don't understand debt and deficit i'm thinking no answer really matters.

    oh... and TARP was done when bush was president, you know, in case you're being selective.

    you also can't cut your income when you have bills to pay just because you hate government and don't want it to operate.

    Go ahead take a stab (no need to dance)tell us how much higher you would like to see Public Debt climb before its enough because clearly you don't seem worried at the moment with the amount we currently have,

    When my income goes down I cut non essential bills. I do not increase spending, it does not make sense.

    Under Bush, we went from a $5.7-trillion debt to $10.6-trillon. The largest increase in US history. Were you complaining then? Somehow I doubt it.

    Congress has certainly dropped the ball in the past few years. Few honest people will argue with that. But to answer your first question, Obama's golf game has improved. :thup:

    I'm sure most would agree they didn't know Bush was still in office....

    I could be wrong but I thought Obama was the President now? Anyway, lLet's see what Obama has done to correct all those "Bush fuckups" shall we?:

    1. Re-Authorize the Patriot Act to include Rendition (Torture) aspects of it
    2. Increase Federal Deficit to 1.4 Trillion from 500 billion under Bush
    3. Kept GITMO open
    4. Lead US into a 3rd War
    5. Pass ObamaCare that most Businesses want exemptions from.
    6. Extend the "Bush Tax Cuts"

    Can I ask a question of you all because I'm not really sure. Obama is a Republican right? :confused:
