Posted on 07/19/2011 10:07:36 PM PDT by American Dream 246
I talked with 2 nice guys yesterday - feeling that a door could be half open, I wanted to know exactly what was their position (politic). I knew they voted for Obama but they seemed to be open enough to hear about Palin and the new teaparty republicans. They asked me to email what Obama did wrong..yes..they don't know but they did not like Bush so they probably still on the "Bush fault" thingy. I would like to start with Clinton and the fact that everybody is saying he was a good president BECAUSE the Congress republicans so helped the economy - and I would like to keep on saying that the congress is democrat since 2006 under Bush. Everybody forget about that. And then Obama.
Does anyone knows the exact numbers when pelosi came to the senate in 2006 - jobs and deficit and expenses - then how much when Bush left - and then how much obama did as spending and awful things like nationalize car industry, welfare etc...sadly I don't feel I am good enough to write a good convincing and looking like non partisan diatribe to make sure I will win their vote for our side.
Please can you help? Thank you :-)
Bush tried to be friends with these lying crooked liberals and they chewed him up and spit him out.
Of course now, it's over $14.5 trillion.
"In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan."
Bush was one of us. An American
baraq is not.
It seems like some enterprising person would be keeping an ongoing log, a chronology or perhaps a list by category (economics, foreign policy, ethics, education, etc) of everything Obama has done that is measurably harmful to our nation. (1. Socialist Obamacare, etc.) A website or something.
There are “rants” out there that point to his hours per week on the golf course and Michelle’s $30,000 ring and such, but I mean a serious itemization, not just to blow off steam. Maybe there even is such a Obamanation List here on FR. Well, if anyone knows of such a thing, it could help AD246 with his pals, and us too.
Tell them Obama in less than 3 years has added much more to national debt than Bush added in all of his 8 years.
Also Obama’s “stimulus” went largely to expand government and protect union jobs, which is an artificial maneuver and not a sound economic policy.
Michelle has a $30,000 ring?
Thank you so much. That’s a very good start. And sorry about my mistake about Pelosi..speaker f the House..duh..
Yes. that’s was I was looking for but could not find anything - like a list and something which would not be too partisan so that would be believable for them. Just comparable facts. That’s what I am looking for.
Check out "Through Obama's Eyes" at www.enterstageright.com. The kicker comes at the end of the article.
Bush was OK until Pelozi and Reid got control of the Congress. In that sense Present-dent Obama is wrong when he says he inherited a bad economy from Bush. He got exactly what he wanted from his friends Nancy and Harry (courtesy of Frank and Dodd), and has been doing his level best to spend America into a third world economy ever since he got elected.
“Does anyone knows the exact numbers when pelosi came to the senate in 2006 - jobs and deficit and expenses -”
$250 billion deficit
$2500 billion budget
turned it into
$1500 billion deficit
$3700 billion budget
$1trillion higher deficit and budget and 7 million jobs lost.
Compare their policies:
From 2002 to 2007, 6 million jobs were created in the 4 years after the bush tax cuts. Under Obama, we lost 2.5 million jobs since stimulus bill was passed.
The car is STILL in the ditch.
I believe 0bama and the democrat Congress actually added more debt during those first two years of his presidency than was added between the presidencies of Washington through George H.W. Bush. That's amazing, and almost hard to wrap your mind around.

Thank you so much. I will read that.
Thank you :-)
Less wars, debt and unemployment.
Oh, and dems always said he’d take social security away, Obama threatened it and hasn’t added a cost of living increase in two years (but the staffers and others got raises).
Bush also vacationed at his home, in these United States and didn’t fly around with an entourage to rival any rapper.
Ask them if Bush were doing things the O has, what would they say.
I mostly have my right-wing Filipino buddy do the talking for me, especially when it’s a bunch of white dimwits with their signature liberal white guilt. He pretty much annihilates them and usually gets them into a brawl.
This was his latest on a libtard in Sta Monica and I pretended I didn;t know the guy (I was looking the other way while trying not to laugh):
HIM: “So how is it Bush’s fault again? This idiot kenyan has been in office for 3 effing years and he couldn’t so a damn thing. Remember “hope and change”? What was that nonsense?
LIB IDIOT: “Well, Bush started..”
HIM: “Blah blah, it’s like a car. You bring it to a mechanic and 3 weeks later, if the mechanic says “well, I can’t fix it because it was the OTHER mechanic’s fault”. You actually will accept that? Spare me your liberal white guilt, white boy. I;ll even bet you don;t have a single mexican, Asian or black friend because here in L.A., white people only mingle with other white people. Don’t worry, 10 years from now when you’re the really tiny minority, we’ll make you our slaves so keep voting Dem.”
Obama and his economic team PROMISED during the campaign that unemployment would NEVER go over 8% on their watch. Well, now we stand at 9.2%...
