One Big Ass Mistake America. {obama} Don't let the government fix what isn't broke. If you do, it will be broken for a long time.



Hi..we all know liberals who are so indoctrinated that NOTHING you can say has even the slightest chance of sinking in, :nod: so save your time, but do take a few minutes to read and digest the following. It's quite revealing. I'm tucking it away in my "keeper file"

Remember the day the Democrats took over.

Or, in other words, It's still Bush's Fault because so many people don't remember.

Don't just skim over this, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.

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, the 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 Congress:

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 CREATION!

Remember the day...

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Franktook over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Doddtook 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 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 Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

(BTW: 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?

Senator BARACK OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?

Senator BARACK OBAMA and the Democrat Congress

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 they were driving.

Set the record straight on Bush!

"It's not that liberals aren't smart, it's just that so much of what they know isn't so" -Ronald Reagan

B-B-B-B-But it's his Fault!

As president Reagan said (paraphrasing): "These facts can be difficult things to deal with."

PLEASE KEEP THIS ONE GOING IN HOPES THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY MAKE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHOSE FAULT THIS HUGE DEFICIT ACTUALLY IS!!!!!!!!!

The Washington Post babbled again recently about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush.

Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this BULL.

So once more, a short civics lesson.

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.

Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)

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."

There is NO way this will be widely publicized because the Obama lap-dog media of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, NEWSWEEK, etc. have already covered this up........so PLEASE send this on!
