The Announcement

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

This disgusting piece of human trash use to be the leader of the repugnant Congress and is a typical example of the kind of people repugnants are and support. Of course this idiot is from Georgia and I blame General Sherman for not finishing what he started. You burn a rats nest and they just run, only to return later and build a new one.

Gee, I thought there would be some people at the Convention in Tampa. That is Tampa, isn't it? Newt promised he'd take his campaign all the way to Tampa. Hate to see the big Bloviator leave the stage.

tin man need a heart and a memory--needs to repent of his disgusting hatred, and open his mind? Speaker Gingrich found deficits and (sort of) balanced the budget; President Obama found deficits and enlarged them, with, his T-sec admitted, no plan to end them. Speaker Gingrich presided over an economy that created jobs; President Obama over one that lost jobs, and over a "jobless recovery." Speaker Gingrich got President Clinton (D) to sign off on welfare reform; President Obama campaigned against the "individual mandate," then rammed it through (?) on party-line votes with various shenanigans.

Newt committed adultery, but maybe he has repented; haven't heard anything lately, and have read he admits his faults. He ran a disorganized campaign; maybe he'd run a disorganized Presidency, though even so I'm sure he'd be right more often, by a lot, than our current President. Unlike tinny and other hate-filled liberals, Newt tried somewhat to be nice to his rivals/enemies.

Andrew Lohr said:__"Speaker Gingrich found deficits and (sort of) balanced the budget; Speaker Gingrich presided over an economy that created jobs"


Not According to the Center For American Progress, Andy. excerpt: " There are, indeed, two main heroes in the story of the remarkable budget surplus of 1998, but neither of them are Newt Gingrich or his Republican Congress. It turns out that their contribution to deficit reduction did more harm than good. No, the true heroes of deficit reduction were, first, President Clinton, whose 1993 budget—passed without a single Republican vote—raised taxes on the wealthy and dramatically altered the nation’s fiscal path, and second, a steadily improving economy. Those two factors, and particularly the interaction between them, account for virtually the entire fiscal improvement. Contrary to the Gingrich assertion, legislation passed by the Republican-led Congress of 1995 through 1997 combined to actually worsen the fiscal situation—albeit slightly.

timbo said...

Welcome 2.... The Center For American Progress??? Are you serious? They are a ultra liberal "think tank" (And I use the term "think" loosely) who is closely aligned with Obama. To quote them is like calling Fidel Castro a good source for the affects of communism around the world. These guys are as left-wing and biased as they get.

The truth is that without Gingrich and the Republican congress Clinton would have no incentive to change anything. If it was liberal policies then why didn't things change in the first 2 years of Clinton's first term.

What you had was Newt, a so-called conservative that was really a moderate pragmatist, who turned right at election time along with a moderate Republican senate. You also had Clinton, a so-called liberal president who balanced every budget as governor of Arkansas who was really a moderate.

Two people who went against their base, cut a deal and got a surplus. Without both of them it would not have been possible. To say anything else is just partisan bull crap.

The Center For American Progress?......Give me a break. Surely your not that dumb.

Sorry Timbo, the chant AND the reality is gonna be "four more years" Support for Romney from the southern conservative base was tepid at best in the primaries. Kolob? Magic underwear? Golden plates? Polygamy? All religions were corrupt and false until God told Joseph Smith to start his religion? Native Americans are lost tribes of Israel? Worthy Mormons can also become Gods? Humans exist as spirit beings before their birth? The founder a convicted con man? I'm sure the Southern Baptist Convention will be all aboard with this since they are such a bastion of tolerance.

The Newster is not from Georgia, nor was he raised there. He was born and mostly raised in Pennyslvania. After is Mother married an Army man, Newster traveled with his Step Father, who knows if he even knew hie real Father.

Newster ended up in Georgia with his High School teacher, who he married and she put him through college and he then devorced her and had an Affair with another woman and married her, the one he served devorce pappers on as she laid in a hospital bed.

I assume Newtie saw politics as an opportunity by it being Georgia as a way to gain power.

As we all know, newtie led the way to getting Clinton fired, all the while as he was having a affair, he was still married when he ended up with that plastic thing he calls a wife.

Why does Clay Bennett not publish a cartoon on the dog eating Obastard's awesome record? $16,000,000,000,000.00 deficit with no end in sight, no budget for his entire term, highest unemployment ever for any president , more people on welfare than any president ever, highest gas prices in history just like the deficit, failed obamacare, failed stimulus package, weak and failing foreign policies, a ridiculous energy policy, committing more troops into afghanistan, the ndaa, spending multi millions of tax dollars for personal use, attacking the catholic church, dividing race, gender, religion & wealthy people with all his hate speech, bowing to our enemies and giving them billions of our tax dollars while stabbing our allies in their backs , his illegal libyan war, the muslim brotherhood in the white house, keeping gitmo opened, threatening and disrespecting the supreme court, disrespecting our constitution, disrespecting our veterans, appointing communist radical czars, spending almost $1,000,000.00 to hide his college records and past, a fake birth certificate, his father being a communist, his twisted and sordid upbringing, his indonesian muslim transgender prostitute nanny, his communist grand parents and life long friends, his denied muslim faith, his racist church of 20 years, the new black panthers, his association with known weather underground admitted communist Bill Ayers, his wife’s hatred of our flag and shame for this country, his arrogance and hypocrisy... obamas the best president ever, just ask him or any of his brain washed followers. Bennetts cartoons are a bigger joke than Barry Soetoro aka Hussien Obama, aka, obastard. What is really pathetic and disgusting is you liberals are proud of this fool of a president’s failures.

Here's an idea! If the economy was the best in history under the Clinton administration, why doesn't Obama set government spending back to 18% of GDP like it was then? Instead of the 23% to 25% of GDP like Obama has it now? I'll tell you why, because Obama doesn't give a rats a-s about the economy! I say he's deliberately trying to destroy the free market based economy. Every policy he's done or tried is proof. The funny thing is, the liberals who support Obama must live in the same crappy economy Obama gives us. I guess making republicans unhappy is more important than stopping the bleeding. If you can honestly say that you're happy with the Obama economy, you're delusional.

Good days work. Speaking of work, and not being there, they must be running two or three shifts at the automobile plant in which you work! That's good to hear, economically speaking. HaHa

Did you people hear about obastard not wanting to return to the Bush years? Actually I think it would be a good idea as President Bush had a budget, unemployment was <5%, President Bush only added .625 trillion dollars of debt per year versus obastard adding 1.71 trillion dollars of debt per year, President Bush did not give 50 billion dollars of taxpayer money to the UAW/Government Motors, President Bush did not apologize to our enemies or bow to them showing submission, President Bush did not approve of the actions by the communist leader Hugo Chavez, President Bush did not attempt to hand over 1/6th of the economy to the government through an illegal socialized health care bill, President Bush did not patronize known terrorist like the Weather Underground Communist terrorist Bill Ayers, President Bush did not spread class warfare through hate speech, President Bush did not attack the Catholic Church, president Bush did not disrespect Israel, Great Britain, Poland, Czechoslovakia and other allies, President Bush did not invite the terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood to the White House, President Bush did not let is wife take lavish vacations on taxpayer money, President Bush did not cancel the Space Shuttle making us rely on Russia for our space program, President Bush did not give the Black Panthers a pass for voter intimidation and for placing a bounty on an American citizen, President Bush believed this country was great because of it's citizens not because of the government like obastard believes. So yes I would love to return to the Bush years versus the obastard years.

Joneses said: “Did you people hear about obastard not wanting to return to the Bush years? Actually I think it would be a good idea etc."

Your willingingness to speak with such an obvious forked tongue about the George W. Bush era is downright creepy, Joneses. Indeed, your devious rhetoric suggests you are a man without a conscience – or should I say a calculating neo-con advocate without a conscience?

Do you really think the American people have forgotten the thousands and thousands of innocent men, women, and children who were either permanently maimed or lost their lives as a direct result of the arrogant lies created and promoted by the Bush/Cheney administration?

Do you really think America has forgotten how the Bush/Cheney Administration mocked and ignored Secretary of the Treasury Paul O’Neill’s warnings about the administration's tax cuts, federal budget deficits, and the destructive neo conservative ideology within the administration?

Indeed, do you really think America has forgotten the Project for the New American Century idealogy along with its arrogant officials like Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, John Bolton, Elliot Abrams, Richard Armitage, Gary Bauer, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Donald Kagan, Robert Kagan, John E “Jeb” Bush, William Kristol, and Dick Cheney?

Do you really think the American people have forgotten Bush/Cheney Administration leaders like Republican Senator Tom Delay who actively promoted religious warfare and worked to incorporate End-Time Armageddon dogma into America’s domestic and foreign policies?

Do you really think American Catholics have forgotten that their own leader, Pope John Paul II, declared that the Bush/Cheney's Administration’s war with Iraq as “illegal and unjust?”

Today's headline, "U.S. homeownership rate drops to 15-year low in Q1". Obastard is being successful at eliminating one of two of the obstacles to total communism, the middle class. The other is religion and obastard has started a war on it as well.

Is this the Hope and Change all of you Obama supporters were expecting when he took office?

Bush signed the Patriot Act into law and like the tax cuts when the Patriot Act expired Obama extended it.

Military tribunals, after promising to end military tribunals and have terrorist tried in civilian courts, Obama continues to use military tribunals as Bush did.

Gitmo. After signing an executive order to close Gitmo, terrorist are still at Gitmo.

Both used a military surge. Obama criticized Bush saying the surge would not work in Iraq, yet Obama used a military surge in Afghanistan. Where have Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink and other protestors gone now that Obama has entered the White House?

Bush enacted a tax cut that the liberals say benefited the wealthy. After those tax cuts expired Obama signed them into law for another two years. They are now the Obama tax cuts.

Bush increased government spending. Obama greatly increased government spending.

Bush implemented stimulus policies. Obama implemented a bigger stimulus policy.

Bush increased regulation. Obama increased even more regulation.

Both bailed out politically connected companies, and Obama continues to bail out politically connected companies.

Bush created a new health care entitlement program. Obama created a massive new health care entitlement program.

There's at least 2 more people in the theater than should be.

BobMKE: Sorry, but there's no reason to respond to a clearly hysterical diatribe with anything but ridicule. Honestly, it's just a smorgasbord of venom. What you should do is instead of fawning up to such a disreputable person is disavow them. They do make you look bad.

Really, did you not see the part about the fake birth certificate (Only the delusional birthers like Orly Taitz still make that claim, even pompous blowhard Trump shut up about it) or the "radical communist czars" (a contradiction that should be obvious!), or the various other examples of divisive invective?

If that's what the Republicans have to offer in their campaigning, I'm going to decline to worry about any criticism from them.

rick1, I notice you fail to note how the Republican members demanded that those tax cuts be kept intact. Why is that key factor omitted? I'd bother with the others, but be honest, if Obama had acted the opposite way, you'd criticize him for that instead.

Blubs, why did you omit the fact that Obama, Reid and Pelosi refused to address the tax issue when they had full control of the Executive and Legislative Branches for two years? Why don't you admit your dream team did not have the balls to deal with it.

"I'd bother with the others, but be honest, if Obama had acted the opposite way, you'd criticize him for that instead."

Blubs, you can't address the other issues because it is a fact that Obama has adopted a lot of the same policies Bush had used. It is time you start being honest with yourself.

Which is it? I'm confused!

But keep telling yourself that Pelosi, and Reid had complete control of the legislature. The compromises they had to make to get Healthcare reform demonstrate the falsehood of that. Though the blue dogs are getting thinner and thinner on the ground. And I can respect putting that ahead of the list of priorities. The debt won't be paid off in a short time period, even Paul Ryan admits that.

You should be honest about that, instead of making false criticisms.

PS, the same objection applies to TARP. If only we'd listened to Romney's suggestions to let them go bankrupt...wait, wait, this week he's saying Obama followed his advice to save them.

Sorry, my mistake, not keeping up with the story of the week.

Blubs, Bush was not a true conservative, he never should have created the TSA, or signed Medicare Part D into law, the two stimulus bills, TARP and he should have used his veto pen on spending increases to name a few. Liberals say how Bush desatroyed the country and yet Obama continues to use some of the Bush’s policies, which Obama says got us into this mess. How do you feel knowing the person you voted for (Obama) continues to use the policies of Bush. Is this the Hope and Change you were expecting?

Until Scott Brown was elected to take the Senate seat left open by the death of Kennedy, the democrats did have full control of both the House and the Senate and failed to address the tax issue. I guess you forgot this little fact. Just like Reid has failed to bring a budget up for a vote in over three years and continues to pass CR’s.

I’m not going to defend Romney on TARP as that was wrong along with the other bailout plans that were given.

No, I think Mitt Romney is the one that is being less than truthful about GM:

April 30, 2012 - Mitt Romney’s position on GM bailout:

Romney’s “position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that. The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.” [Eric Fehrnstrom, senior adviser to the Romney campaign]

Feb 4, 2012 - Mitt Romney’s position on GM bailout:

“The president tells us that without his intervention things in Detroit would be worse. I believe that without his intervention things there would be better.”

What case is this, BobMKE? To date, you’ve only supported ugly meanspirited accusations against President Obama that have do not have the slightest bit of relevance to any real issue that America faces today. Come back and talk when you actually have something to discuss besides phony crap like "fake birth certificates" and "transgender prostitute nannies."

mountain,

Read my 7:35pm post.I rest my case again. You did everything I said people will do when they don't use substance and logic. You cherry picked Jones points and then used the best defense is offense routine. You liberals are soooooo predictable

Your use of the words "substance" and ‘logic” is amusing in this case, BobMKE. I challenge you to apply a bit of "logic" to the accusations that you praise. Indeed, please demonstrate to us the use of logic behind Joneses' accusations – a simple three-line syllogism will do.
