    As Leno says, he's running out of GOP to blame! I think most logical thinking folks will come to agree he now owns the economy. He screws it up even further than he's done ( no doubt he will ) we'll have the WH back in 2016 and maybe the Senate in 2014. Chin up!:badgrin:

    Leno: Obama Running Out of Republicans to Blame


    Jay Leno: "President Obama today pardoned the White House turkey, and then the turkey forgave him for the bad economy. So it worked out nice. Thought that was nice."

    "As you may have heard, our economy is headed towards what they call a fiscal cliff unless President Obama and Congress can reach some sort of compromise. And President Obama is in a tough spot. Because the Democrats did so well on Election Day, he's running out of Republicans he can blame this on."

    Deficit spending been going down since Obama's first year. What are you folks going to do when we get back into the surplus area again, like what happened with Clinton?

    :lol:

    Now in my lifetime I have heard that the GOP is dead, and that the Dem party was dead.

    In both cases the reports of their demise was premature.

    Now perhaps if the TEA PARTY is a authentic populist movement, it will, much as the Republican party did to the WHIG Party, eventually replace it.

    Perhaps the TEA PARTY folks will be able to liberate themselves from the BLUE BLOODS of the East who mostly control the RNC, and from the BANKSTERS that originally bankrolled their movement from a fledgling group of discontents into a nationwide movement


    Of course, that really event does depend on the validity of the narrative that the TEA PARTY is real populist movement.

    I have my doubts about that, but who knows? I have absolutely NO DOUBT that most of the TEA PARTY rank and file are REAL enough.

    But is the organization they claim as theirs really under their control?

    Time will tell.

    If this fucker collapses our economy or turns us into cuba. That may increase the chance of a republican winning in 2016.

    Egypt appears to be Obama's Iran. What a cluster fuck.

    How about we just hope for things to go well instead of one party killing the economy so the other party can win.

    I know silly idea...

    did you know clintons' first budget was turned down by his own party it was so massive, just like barry's.
    good thing newt gingrich was there to make clitoon look good

    be interesting what transpires in the next few weeks. You give clinton credit for a balanced budget but I'm sure youll blame the gop if barry can't reach an agreement.
    Interesting paradox you find yurself in.

    How are we blowing so much money into thin air? Why not on infrastructure and education?

    What a waste.

    I know!

    When Clinton took office the debt was 4 Trillion and when he left the debt went DOWN to 5.6 Trillion! :D

    Oh wait, are you talking about The Deficit or The National Debt?

    When Clinton left the Deficit had a surplus of 256 Billion. Apply that to the 16 Trillion in National Debt we have and it would take how long to pay off the National Debt?

    If spending stayed the exactly the same: Approximately 64 years.

    Wrong. CBO numbers say it's 3.4 Trillion in increased Deficit Spending since the Kenyan took over. 4.1 Trillion through 2013.

    Obama
