Thanks I got a chuckle out of that considering that Obama has spent more than the previous three republican Presidents combined. And it only took him just a little over three years.

You should post more you're easy.


So your answer is, as long as Obama spends more, republicans are doing a good job even if they still overspend.



The next time I throw one at you try to jump up real high to catch it. You are either purposely evading my point, or you're a dumb guy. Because I mention that Obama has spent more than other Presidents combined doesn't mean that I gave any other President carte blanche to spend what they will. What it does mean is that the biggest spender of them all is currently in office and for some reason YOU chose to pick on republicans for this issue. So, the better quesion would be, why do you not place blame with Obama for this latest catastrophe?

One more time, Obama spent more than the last three republican Presidents combined! And he did it in a little over 3 years. Now what does that mean to you? If it means that I am implying that it's okay for republican Presidents to over spend then you get an "F". However, if after you've had a chance to mull it over it means that I am pointing out Obama's spending because it is head and shoulders above them all then you get an "A".

Last chance...

come back with something smart or stop playing.

Your making this difficult. Back to the original question.

Who was the last REPUBLICAN president who didn't spend too much?

The only president's name I saw in your response was "Obama" who is not a Republican, yet your calling me dumb. I will give you a hint, pretend it is still 2008. Since we have had no Republican presidents since then what happened between 2009 and now is irrelevant to the answer.

I am not a big fan of Romney...I think he is only SLIGHTLY right of center.



But I will vote for him for the simple fact that this president will have a HUGE impact with judicial appointments both at the district level and the Supreme Court.



This is the real lasting impact of a president....and Obama would do his damnedest to swing the court as far left as he could.

You're not getting it - I'm not playing your game. I made a factual statement about Obama. I accused Obama of spending too much as he has spent more than the past three republican Presidents COMBINED. I'm not talking about the last republican President who didn't spend too much.

If Sonia Sotomayor is any indication of the type of Judge that he'd appoint in his second term you've made a very wise decision my friend!

Gee, don't you think he HAD to spend so much because otherwise we'd be in the Second Great Depression brought on by, wait for it, the overspending and tax cutting for the rich REPUBLICAN President G.W. Bush? He went through a surplus in less than a year, thanx to his tax cuts and two wars (only one of which was justified). Would you have wanted Obama, or anyone who was president to just sit back and do nothing?

Bush was an out of control spender, but (1) he didn't blow through the surplus, and (2) the so-called Second Great Depression wasn't caused by overspending and tax cutting.

Well that makes sense everyone knows that the more money you take from job growers the more they will have to invest in creating those jobs.

HUH?

You are not even on the same planet with logic. By the way the "Bush tax Cuts" cut taxes 5% for every American who pays taxes. Duh...did ya know that one? No, I guess you just listened to the morons who kept saying that Bush cut taxes for only the rich.

Would you have wanted Obama, or anyone who was president to just sit back and do nothing?



We would have been better off if Obama did nothing. This is longest sustained high unemployment in the history of the US.

Isn't Obama wonderful? Geee...how come he isn't talking about "hope and change" anymore? WAIT FOR IT...WAIT FOR IT--- Because he thinks pitting one class of Americans against another is a better idea to reelected and he knows even though liberals are stupid that the "hope and change" crap isn't going to work again.

But, if he were a good President he would have given tax breaks to small business where almost 65% of all jobs are created. Instead he's scared the hell out of them by threatening to raise taxes about four times per year.

And while I'm at it I'll make a prediction. Should Obama win a second term and enact all of the bad ideas that he's threatened, like raising taxes 5% on every single working American we will fall back into a recession...QUICKLY!

Agree

'I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.' - Benjamin Franklin, Constitutional Convention(read by James Wilson.)

Hopefully, Obama will go in with the attitude that he has a mandate, and ramrod some things through, the same way that President Cheney did.

Now that it's going to be Romney, I guess Obamneycare is off the table. That doesn't make any sense -- why trash the last 3 years of groundwork you laid (that the #1 Republican mission is to overturn Obamacare) by nominating the only Republican in America who has zero credibility in opposing it?

Mind-boggling, but I guess Republicans prefer to lose in 2012, and try to pick up the pieces in 2016 (probably why they didn't field any solid candidates this time around).

I would have wanted a president to cut back on expenses and lowering taxes?

Cause that tends to stimulate mightily.

Verily.
