We are being told that Bush is to blame for the mess we are in.
When you consider that in the years between the 2003 tax cuts and the Democrat takeover of Congress, unemployment was at 4.6%, revenues to the federal government were UP and we experienced a RECORD uptick in the stock market.
So, if Bush's policies created the "mess", there is no way you can argue that before the mess, the same policies created a very favorable situation. (I realize Liberals HAVE to have it both ways, but in this situation, you are confined to REALITY)...
That being the case... if Obama simply emulated Bush, it stands to reason (again, I realize Liberalism doesn't deal in reason... so I apologize) that America would be in GREAT shape at least for a short time. That would be time to figure out an actual solution, no?13 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
The new talking point lately is how Conservatives are "Islamophobic"...
How does this help them in November? They are spending millions of dollars and hundreds of hours trying to concinve everyone that Obama is a Christian, so what does it matter if we hate Muslims?
Or is this mearly a distraction tactic... "LOOK, SHINY THING!"?16 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
...Do Democrats not realize that George Bush isn't running for anything?

I am having a hard time understanding the Liberal point here.
Are you guys in favor of all illegal immigration? Or just from Mexico?
(In other words, should immigrants be allowed free entry without
question from ANYWEHERE, say the Middle East?)
In that case, do you support the repeal of the federal law that makes
it a crime to be in this country without going through proper channels?
If anyone has a serious answer, feel free to email me.
Tax cuts RAISE federal revenue... This is not an opinion, but a proven fact! It has always worked.

If Susan Bolton rules in favor of the federal government over Arizona based on supremacy, doesn't that create precedence to challenge a lot of other states laws?2 AnswersLaw & Ethics1 decade ago
Be honest, and PLEASE present examples.
This question is ONLY for those who have actually READ the Constitution.
Here is a link, in case you haven't...
So, we learned yesterday (although some of us already knew) that the health care reform law gives the executive branch literal legislative powers... bypassing the Constitutional authority of the Congress. Very soon, we will learn that the newly passed financial reform law will give the executive branch similar powers over private businesses.
My question is simply this...
When a Republican makes it back to the White House, and then has these dictator-like powers... how will Liberals feel? Will there be mass outrage? Will there be calls for repeal of all of Obama's "reform"?8 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
When did the executive branch start passing laws? Have these guys ever even HEARD of the Constitution?
Isn't this the kind of stuff Liberals accused Bush of doing?16 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
