The Mess and how Obama inherited it

 One of the short comings of many people, particularly the so called "kool aid" drinkers, is their inability to separate truth from propaganda. Since the first day that Obama got elected we have heard the same tired phrase "we inherited this mess from George W. Bush". Are you interested in knowing how the mess really got inherited or would you prefer to keep sipping the Democrat Party kool aid? It is your choice - but if you want the truth, then I dare you to read on.

This tells the whole story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his term.
Don't just skim over this, it's not long, but 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 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 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 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?
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 andFreddie - 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
So when someone tries to blame Bush..
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 and 2009 as well as 2010 and2011.
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 and 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.
There is no way this will be widely publicized,unless each of us sends it on!

2012 CAMPAIGN POSTER going viral

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.."
-- Winston Churchill

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the
wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person
must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the
government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to
work because the other half is going to take care of them;
and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work,
because somebody else is going to get what they work for,
that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Now do you get it?

We have a friend who sends us the greatest e-mails! Check this out...

This cuts through all the political doublespeak we get.
It puts it into a much better perspective and is the same for many countries in Europe ...

Why the U.S. was downgraded:
* U.S. Tax revenue: $ 2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $ 3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
* Annual family income: $ 21,700
* Money the family spent: $ 38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $ 16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts: $ 385

Got It ?????

OK now Lesson # 2: Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup ...and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do ......

Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?
Your choice is coming Nov. 2012...

"This is sheer genius."

In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify.

His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained, "Passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it."

Does this explain liberals to you?

I can't add anything to this.

My sentiments exactly!

I received this from a friend, and had to pass it on:

Marybeth Hicks
The Washington Times

Oct 20, 2011
Call it an occupational hazard, but I can’t look at the Occupy Wall
Street protesters without thinking, who parented these people"?
As a culture columnist, I’ve commented on the social and political
ramifications of the movement - now known as OWS - whose fairyland
agenda can be summarized by one of their placards: Everything for

Thanks to their pipe-dream platform, it’s clear there are people with
serious designs on transformational change in
America who are using
the protesters like bed springs in a brothel.

Yet it’s not my role as a commentator that prompts my parenting
question, but rather the fact that I’m the mother of four teens and
young adults. There are some crucial life lessons that the protesters’
moms clearly have not passed along.

Here, then, are five things the OWS protesters’ mothers should have
taught their children but obviously didn’t, so I will:

I Life isn’t fair. The concept of justice - that everyone should be
treated fairly - is a worthy and worthwhile moral imperative on which
our nation was founded. But justice and economic equality are not the
same. Or, as Mick Jagger said, ‘You can’t always get what you want.’

II No matter how you try to ‘level the playing field,’ some people have
better luck, skills, talents or connections that land them in better
places. Some seem to have all the advantages in life but squander
them, others play the modest hand they’re dealt and make up the
difference in hard work and perseverance, and some find jobs on Wall
Street and eventually buy houses in the
Hamptons. Is it fair Stupid

III Nothing is ‘free.’ Protesting with signs that seek ‘free’ college
degrees and ‘free’ health care make you look like idiots, because
colleges and hospitals don’t operate on rainbows and sunshine. There
is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational
careers and ‘slow paths’ to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying
Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical.

IV While I’m pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things
that are not free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers,
trash hauling, repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids
and the food that inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift
protest kitchens. Real people with real dollars are underwriting your
civic temper tantrum.

V Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate student
loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity you
decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay
them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose
educational pursuits that don’t require loans, or to seek technical or
vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your
ongoing educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college
student is not a state of victimization. It’s a privilege that
billions of young people around the globe would die for - literally.

‘ A protest is not a party. On Saturday in
New York, while making a
mad dash from my cab to the door of my hotel to avoid you, I saw what
isn’t evident in the newsreel footage of your demonstrations: Most of
you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in a
sober pursuit of social and political change don’t dance jigs down
Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look
foolish, you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don’’t seem to
realize that all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.

‘ There are reasons you haven’t found jobs. The truth Your tattooed
necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are
off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn’t a
virtue. Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of
work. If you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the
problem. It’s not them. It’s you.
