So, my Democrat friends, I understand this to be your stance:
- A woman has the right to play Terminator with a living unborn human being
- A woman does NOT have the right to shoot the balls off some guy that’s trying to rape her.
So, my Democrat friends, I understand this to be your stance:
I’ve been arguing what is written below (received via e-mail and edited) since President Obama took office, but my thoughts are well-crystallized here:
The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 (the inauguration of President Obama), 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 Democratic 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 these facts. On, January 3rd, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
- The Dow Jones closed at 12,621.77 (Incredibly as of this writing it is now on the verge of 13,000)
- The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%.
- The unemployment rate was 4.6%.
- George Bush’s economic policies had set a record of 52 straight months of job creation!
Remember that 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!
THANK YOU DEMOCRATS (especially Barney Frank) for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment … to this crisis by (among many other things) dumping $5-6 TRILLION of toxic loans on the economy from your Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac cronies!
By the way, Bush asked Congress 17 times to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. Barney blocked it and called it a “Chicken Little Philosophy” – and then the sky did fall! He wanted to roll the dice.
And who took the third highest pay-off from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? OBAMA did!
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress, especially Barney!
So when someone tries to blame Bush … …remember January 3rd, 2007… …THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!
Bush may have been in the car, but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel and they were driving the economy into the ditch.
Budgets are not passed by the White House. They are passed by Congress and the party that has controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 and 2009 as well as 2010 and 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 budget.
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. Let’s remember what the deficits looked like during that period:
- 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.”

The only thing missing at the bottom is that Obama, the DNC, and elected Democrats from sea to shining sea SUPPORT the Occupy Wall Street thugs and criminals…
…and called the Tea Partiers all of the following:
… and of course… ….Racist and Terrorists
The knee-jerk and common sense reaction — to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat’s claim that Unemployment Payments stimulate the economy — is, correctly, to roll your eyes and assert that it is nothing more than a politically motivated claim.
A few short years ago, in 2004-2005, the Democrats were complaining about how bad the situation was for the unemployed under President Bush when the Unemployment Rate was 4% – 5% — not the 9% – 10% under the Obama regime. That visit to the history books alone answers the question as to whether or not the claim of its stimulative affect is ideologically motivated.
But, alas, a good Conservative / Tea Partier wants the facts, and here are a slew of them from the Cascade Policy Institute — Oregon’s Premier Policy Think Tank.
Here’s the scoop on the stimulative negative affect of Unemployment Insurance.
Knowing that Democrats care about getting elected FIRST and the American People, the Deficit, and reality LAST, we know that they will vote to extend the Bush Tax Cuts well in advance of the elections this fall. They will traipse around the country declaring that they care about the deficit and keeping the tax burden at a minimum for the middle class.
In the past 4 years that the Democrats have been in control of Congress, they have talked constantly about the need to raise revenues (taxes) and little (if any) about cutting spending. Steny Hoyer confirms the Democrat mantra here. In fact, the increase in the DEFICIT (amount borrowed) from 2007 – 2011 will be 5 TRILLION dollars.
The lack of responsibility in the Democrat Congress is astounding and completely ignores the will of the people — with or without the Tea Party. The electorate for the 18 months that is the Obama presidency have shown time and again that they intend to elect Fiscal Conservatives to get our spending under control (including Social Security and Medicare), keep taxes low, and retire the country’s debt. The electorate has told Congress and the President that it is time for Americans to be responsible for themselves, protect their borders, return illegal immigrants to their country of origin, and return to the Constitution’s intent of a small Federal Government.
Yet, those in the Democratically controlled government continue to tell us that we need more government. That’s the same things as the vacuum cleaner salesman telling you that you need a stronger vacuum cleaner.
America’s not buying what they’re selling, and while the Democrats move to the Center to run for re-election, let all voters stay alert to the big government gods and high tax goddesses that the Democrats truly serve.
