Mike....save your breath, skeevoeivo is too lame to understand basic math.
It would be like if you had a credit card and you put 190 percent more spending on the credit card than you earned. When the bill comes you don't pay it and that 190 percent starts collecting interest. Next month when the bill comes you don't pay it again and continue this course for the next eight years. Now the interest is collecting interest.
You don't pay it for four years and then add another 52 percent to the debt all the while interest on interest is adding up by the minute.
After four years you try another approach for the next eight years. By the end of that eight years you are actually paying down your debt but by now the debt and the interest is so high your debt still increases another 37 percent but at least your on the right track.
Now you change strategies and again spend more than you make and along with the interest you raised that credit card debt another 86 percent.
Now you cut your deficit spending in half but after thirty years your dealing with a runaway train. To blame your recent history and ignore the last thirty years that got you where you're at is stupid to say the least.
Anyone with even limited intelligence and a primary grasp on math would understand this and there in lies skeevoeivo's problem.

skeevoeivo....we are still paying the interest on the interest on the interest from when your boy reagan increased the national debt by 190 percent. The federal government doesn't have the revenue coming in to cover the debt Obama inherited. Are you so stupid that you don't understand that or is it just easier to ignore that fact in that fantasy land between your ears?

Those numbers tell me that your boy ronnie put this country on a path of destruction. When Clinton came along he was handed ronnie's and bush the fathers debt and budget deficit and he turned it into a budget surplus. Clinton handed that budget surplus and the path for paying off the debt to bush the idiot son and we all know what he did with that.
You claim job creation has been dismal the last six years. When Obama took office we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. If we are now creating 150,000 jobs a month which is a conservative number that is a 900,000 job swing to the good. There have been more jobs created during the Obama administration than bush the father and bush the idiot son combined. Your problem is you're letting the facts confuse you. The numbers are right in front of you but you just ignore them and keep praying to saint ronnie.

Skeevoeivo.....again you fail to factor in the interest the Obama administration has to pay on the debt bush ran up. Here is how much the national debt has go up during recent administrations.
reagan up 190 percent
ghw bush up 52 percent
Clinton up 37 percent
gw bush up 86 percent
Obama up 45 percent
You can read all about it in the link below. You're welcome. Oh, and have someone explain how interest works for you.

Like I said reagan raised taxes eleven times on the masses while cutting them for the rich and all the while he tripled the national debt by borrowing more money than ALL of the presidents before him COMBINED. Obama cut taxes while cutting the defect in half but Obama is the devil.
July 23, 2014 at 1:18 p.m.
Oh, I forgot to mention, Al Qaeda that was bankrolled by reagan blew up the Marine barracks in Beirut killing 241 Marines and injuring many more. That's your boy reagan.

walter....reagan didn't have any compassion for the people with mental illness he threw out on the streets and I don't have any for him. He got what he deserved. Like I said Karma!
In 1986 reagan signed an amnesty bill that made 1.7 illegal's citizens but Obama is the devil.
reagan raised taxes seven of his eight years with a total of eleven tax raises while cutting taxes on the rich. Obama cut taxes and they are the lowest since the 1950's but Obama is the devil.
reagan sold arms and bankrolled Osama bin Ladean and al quada. reagan illegally sold arms to Iran. Obama killed bin Ladean but Obama is the devil.
reagan bailed out the crooks in the S&L scandal. Obama made sure Wall Street and the banks paid back the trillion dollars bush just wanted to give away but Obama is the devil.
The teabagger/republicans are delusional when it comes to reagan. The guy was a true scumbag.

I remember when reagan was governor of California and he closed all of the state run mental health facilities and threw the patients out on the street. It always makes me smile knowing he spent the last ten years of his life as a lump in a dirty diaper. Karma!

skeevoeivo....it wasn't any of those people that put us in an illegal war four years later. It was bush the idiot you voted for that did that. No one else, it was him so you should just own it because your BS "spin" doesn't fly.
July 21, 2014 at 7:04 p.m.
walter....there was no enemy. bush, channey, rumsfeld, rice, powell and the rest claimed they had proof and photos of stock piles of chemical weapons, they claimed they had proof of Iraq having a nuke weapons program and ties to al Qaeda and 9/11 and were an imminent threat to the United States. You can't claim to have proof of all those things while having none of it and not be called a liar. The only reason congress voted for going to war is because they believed the lies they were told.
The result was hundreds of thousands of innocent men, woman and children killed, trillions of US tax dollars wasted and a country left in ruins.
You can call it what you want, I call it lies and torture.
