Speaker Nancy Pelosi 01.04.07:
“After years of historic deficits, this new Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: pay as you go, no new deficit spending. Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.”
By my count in the four years after this statement, the debt has gone from $8 trillion to now almost $16 trillion.
I just read where this old woman is playing foolish and childish games on the House floor. (The Hill)
An NBC analysis of unemployment under Bush follows:
At the beginning of his administration – 4.2% (Bureau of Labor Statistics, January 2001)
At the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the obama administration – 6.7% (Bureau of Labor Statistics, November 2008)
The corrupt and biased media, NBC chief among them, made this analysis as an indictment of Bush, after eight years of solid harassment. They now praise obama for an 8.5% unemployment rate, having been as high as 10% under obama. These figures are said to be bogus and rigged and that unemployment is much higher. I don’t know. But just say they are accurate, this is nothing to brag about!!
During the Bush years, the president was blamed by the media for everything. Under obama, the president is blamed for nothing. And if a republican is elected president – I hope to God- we will see an immediate aboutface back to everything being the president’s fault, in their hateful, corrupt, and biased way. We just have to stop listening to them and allowing them to shape public opinion by use of their propoganda and lies. It is really much better not to even listen or watch the MFM (I saw MSM written this way somewhere and I don’t know what it means. I can only guess. I like it. It looks good to me. Hope it means what I think it does.)

Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, made a surprise visit to U.S. troops this afternoon (08.11.10).
They showed up at the USO in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. There they mingled with the returning soldiers, thanked them, chatted and posed for photos as proof of the unexpected encounter for folks back home.
This administration has from day one done nothing but cast blame on George Bush and the Bush Administration for any and everything that is going wrong.
Now even as late as yesterday, one full year into the Obama Administration, President Obama comes out and says there is a failure in the system “that has been in place now for years.” He should have already changed it then. He also said, “the information was not effectively dissiminated in order to get him on a no fly list.” Well, I do believe Bush is in Texas, long since having returned to civilian life, so I don’t think he had anything to do with that.
Bush is like the phantom “Marsha” who comes in and messes up everything overnight.
Of course, Janet came out and said the “system worked” and we should be proud, but as soon as it became clear that many warnings were ignored, dots were not connected, balls were dropped, the system suddenly became somebody elses fault. But I have to say that if he keeps working at it, he may become more and more like George Bush, which could only be a massive improvement.
When planes hit the buildings on 9/11 nobody had even conceived in their wildest imagination that this could happen, but now that we know how intent on killing us these people are, there is no excuse for the lax treatment of the issue this administration is giving it.
And even after the Ft. Hood massacre, Obama says we don’t want to jump to conclusions. Jump to conclusions? How much does it take for him to recognize reality.
It’s time Barack Obama stopped acting like a child saying “he did it first, it’s all his fault,” the type manipulation any decent parent would not allow their children to engage in. But then maybe that’s all he’s got.
He’s had plenty of time to change anything he thought was wrong with the system, but in fact the only change he has made is to weaken not strengthen defenses George Bush had in place. And even the best of systems require use of the system, adding information and up-dating it daily. He is trying to release terrorists, not stop them. He is still calling it a “lone extremist” and I am sure we are the laughing stock of al Qaida. And he wants to bring terrorists to New York City to try them as common criminals, giving them constitutional rights that should be for U. S. citizens, not the enemies of our country and our constitution.
And what do we do? The first thing done is this panty bomber gets assigned a lawyer who shuts him up. So instead of trying to get him to talk and tell us if there are other planes in the sky ready to blow up, or trying to thwart any other plans in progress, we start giving him pain medication and planning his skin grafts.
Obama has been all over the world bowing and kowtowing to kings and princes instead of taking care of his number one responsibility, the safety of the American people. But then he considers about half of us to be bigger enemies than the terrorists. Got to watch all these ex-military and tea party protesters, they may become radical or something.
And he can’t even be bothered to come off the golf course, just as he thought it was more important to give a “shout out” before he addressed the Ft. Hood killings, treating it almost as an afterthought. No hearings on that yet.
And he still has about four more days in Hawaii. And to top that off, the vice president is also off shore in the Virgin Islands. You would almost think they are getting off the mainland in case the whole thing blows up.
How does it make you feel to know that the president and the vice president have both left the land mass known as the United States of America and are on tropical islands somewhere during what could be an attack or threat to the country? Doesn’t make me feel too safe. I would say it doesn’t matter, they can just stay where they are forever, but then that would mean that Nancy Pelosi would be in charge. Think about it. Our lives are in the hands of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and in the alternative, Nancy Pelosi.
God help us. Could we just get a recount? Maybe we could get lucky and John McCain won after all.
UPDATE: Believe it or not, Nancy Pelosi is also in Hawaii.. Can’t make it up.

The Ft. Hood massacre just keeps unfolding in layers, more facts coming out each day and revealing the hearts of grieving Americans as the reality of it really hits us. Today, I was reading this touching post about the 14th victim, and I had not looked at it like this concerning the unborn child that was also killed by Monster Hasan.
While following some links related to the post, I came across this amazing, amazing article about President Bush and Laura and their private visit to Ft. Hood to offer comfort in the midst of this horrific event. It’s been almost a week now, and I think each day another layer is exposed in me as I move from one emotion to another, because honestly it was so hard to believe it was for real, it is taking a while to sink in. I’ve been shocked, numb, angry, and sad, and most of all outraged.
Some Hillary supporters here have expressed their admiration for what President Bush did for the country and for the devastated soldiers and their families at Ft. Hood. Here’s an excerpt and a link.
“”If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.
…..we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention,when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.
The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.
If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.””
See the entire post here. Don’t miss the comments and the Halloween 2009 post.It makes me proud to be an American and so happy to see some genuine bipartisanship, because after all, when push comes to shove, we are “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Newsbusters reports with video:
CNN’s Paul Begala, in response to Friday’s announcement that former Maryland governor Michael Steele had been named Republican National Committee chairman, said, “The real leader of the Republican Party in America today is a corpulent drug addict with an AM radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh.”
And what does that make the leader of the democratic party, I wonder? Here’s an interesting and quite funny video of some prominent democrats, including Barack Obama, falling all over themselves to tell us all about their drug use.
Mr. Begala also added:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “very bitter, and divisive,” “Obama is stylistically much more like Reagan,” and that George W. Bush was a “spectacularly lazy president.”
And how bitter and divisive is that?
But at least Gov. Sarah Palin and George W. Bush are public figures and in politics. Rush Limbaugh is a private citizen practicing his profession, the one he has had now for about 20 years, and isn’t it a bit of a stretch to elevate him to the level of the “leader of the republican party?”
In the 2003 inauguration of Bush, reporters were attacking the $40 million price tag as obscene. “In a time of war and natural disaster, is it time for a lavish celebration?” ABC’s Terry Moran doubted. The AP’s Will Lester calculated that the money spent on Bush’s inaugural could vaccinate “22 million children in regions devastated by the tsunami….Do we need to spend this money on what seems so extravagant?”
Have we heard one word of criticism from ABC, AP, or anybody else in the MSM about the reported *$160 million the Obama Inauguration will cost? I haven’t seen or heard anything. And with the extreme crisis our country is in, you don’t even have to mention the homeless and hungry in other countries to wonder about the extravagance.
This is just one small example of how the MSM slants their coverage. Anybody who believes a word of what they present to the American people could be pretty close to brainwashed. In fact, there are many people in this country who are brainwashed because they buy into the hype and spin they hear. The MSM have an agenda. Bush never had a chance. And they still haven’t let up on him.
And it’s really nothing new:
The New York Times asked in a January 3, 1993 headline: “Clinton as National Idol: Can the Honeymoon Last?” Newsweek magazine ran TV ads touting its commemorative edition “that’s sure to be a collector’s item because it covers the most important inauguration of our lifetime.” Wall Street Journal reporter Jill Abramson — now managing editor of news at the New York Times — confessed: “It’s an exciting time to be in Washington….People are excited. They’re happy about change….I think you’re going to see crowds for these inaugural events the likes of which we haven’t seen in Washington ever.”
I think Time magazine has had Obama on the front cover of their magazine 15 times. And most of those times was before the election. So as a candidate, is it fair reporting to give him this prominence even before he is elected? Did it influence the election? There’s no question it did. He was the socially acceptable choice, the hip choice, the choice sure to make you look “intelligent” and “inclusive.”
And the MSM has and will cover for Obama. They won’t let him make any mistakes. But then maybe not forever. Don’t they always turn on those they have built up?
President George Bush has been more than helpful and polite and just a stand up guy in making this transition of power go as smoothly as possible. Unlike the reception he got when he took over from Clinton. But he put the good of the country first, being fully aware of the importance of this critical time — you know, the time when the whole world is watching.
And the wall to wall coverage has begun. Coronation is near.
UPDATE: *””The country is in the middle of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, which isn’t stopping rich donors and the government from spending $170 million, or more, on the inauguration of Barack Obama.”” This from ABC, reporting an even larger figure and finally bringing up the extravagance
in light of the economy and pointing out that Obama’s Inauguration Has Been Financed in Part by Bailed-Out Wall Street Executives.
How does that make you feel? Makes me furious.
