    Default Obama by the numbers.

    It's clear that some here fully support this president and his efforts. I do not but I'm willing to post up evidence to back my dissatisfaction. Here are actual numbers representing the disastrous leadership he has provided and it's cost to America and Americans. As he lies his way through another State of the Union address as he has each preceding year, here are honest verifiable facts that he will have to hide from since he's not man enough to face them with a solution. In every single case, America is so much worse off as a result of him and his policies that it's impossible to deny. I have no doubt that our resident liberals fully approve of the following facts:

    Not excusing anything the current administration is responsible for, but as far as politics goes... It was a genius move on behalf of the republican politicians to make money so easily available during their time in office. Gives the impression of "ooh life is good with republicans".

    The reality seems to be, that you can't spend a ton without having to save a ton... or making a ton. No one saved a ton. We all refinanced, pulled money out, and spent money like a teenager expends semen in bed with two girls. Woo Hoo!

    And now it's the Democratic Party's fault... Absolute genius!

    I'm republican (for the most part). But I'm not blind. And I'm not one to place blame.

    Everything our country is going through is my fault. I should have been smarter with my finances at the time.

    I just got lost when the two girls started whispering in my ear.

    But, I'm all good with blaming it on the democrats

    Think deeper. Remove yourself from the reality you believe. It's all a B.S. game.

    No, we all didn't!

    No, the recession is not all the Democrat's fault, both parties had a hand in making the mess. Doc, to the best of my knowledge, never blamed this all on the Democrats. They just happen to be in charge of the fix. You can't blame any of what's going on on the Republican's, they're not allowed to participate in the decision process since O's been elected.

    Bud, you seem like a nice person with a level head, but I think you missed badly on this post. I think most of the conservatives in here think plenty deep, maybe to deep at times. Problem is as I see it, most of the Libs refuse to think much at all. You don't have to be highly intelligent to realize we as a nation cannot continue to exist spending the way Obama is spending. What I see Doc doing is continually pointing out how the path Obama, or whoever is calling the shots, have us on can only lead to the down fall of OUR country. This is just one of the many miss-managed policies of this administration. Like Doc, I don't plan on taking this collapse quietly or willingly. Sitting back and playing nice will only get our country steam rolled by this progressive, socialist, communist, dictator, or what ever the hell Obama is trying to be.

    I'm not sure I'd even know where to start with this one? Two girls in bed? Sorry pal but I married the love of my life 43 years ago. Women sit on a pedestal with me - not dancing around a pole. As far as my post? I sincerely think you either didn't read it or misunderstood it completely.

    Now, if you are looking to blame someone for the spending spree we are on, I'll provide you some other verifiable facts despite my fear it will prompt another "unique response" as this one. Here, chew on these facts:

    The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress. The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the House of Representatives. At the time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% The Unemployment rate was 4.6% George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH Remember the day... January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES! Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES! Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress did So when someone tries to blame Bush. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

    Guys, I'm going to excuse myself from the table.

    I appreciate the level of class the two of you uphold. Politics just isn't my game and I'm not really sure why I posted. Maybe just a thought I had to get out of my head and it just landed here.

    Back to what I know.

    Make an awesome day guys

    Too bad he excused himself. I'm a deep thinker on fiscal matters.
    Doc used just numbers on his first post, and put politics in the 2nd.
    On politics, I don't blame Dems for one penny of spending during the yrs. the Rs had Congress. And I do blame Rs for not curtailing Os spending when they got the House back in 2010, or since. Stricly cowardice.
    On fiscal matters, I'd like to avoid us becoming one of the PIGS. Pretty simple really. Cut some spending today. Cut some more tomorrow. If we fail, the US ceases to exist.
