    I'm seriously asking about the highlighted part.

    A self-described conservative, Bush 43, attacks Afghanistan and botches the hunt for bin Laden, resulting in the totally unbelievable presidential statement that he doesn't spend much time thinking about OBL. WTF?

    Attack Iraq for nonexistent WMD? What's up with that?

    Can't get to New Orleans for four friggin' days after Katrina? I could have driven to NO in my car in one day!

    Prescription drug benefit (Medicare D) with NO bargaining for the lowest cost?

    Going to bring down our credit rating because they won't raise the debt ceiling or taxes? WTF?

    I'm sick of this argument that not raising the debt limit is doing something to threaten the country's credit rating.

    Think about it: Greece's debt, spread evenly to every family, would be a burden of $40,000. Here in America it would be $45,000, and the left and Obama want us to believe that not increasing that number to $50,000 would hurt the country's credit yeah right. 63% of Americans, over 50% on all polls, the plurality of America is against this president.

    Obama's annual trillion deficit, malfeasance with the Social Security Trust Fund and cramdown of US auto bondhoders to enrich his UAW cronies are to blame
