    It doesn't really shock me or make me angry. It just confirms what I always suspected.

    Sure. Maybe they can allocate a few billion for Presidential Apathy Medals in the next budget.

    I don't care who you pinkos voted for. My point is that this is a Bush Era budget and most people here voted for Bush, so it seems kind of stupid to cry about something you effectively voted for. Maybe you could have gotten away with it for his first budget, while he was still hot off campaigning as a small government Republican, but certainly not his last.

    I should have known from past experience where this thread was going the second I started:

    Someone whips out the inevitable: Ohh boo hoo the president has no control over the budget sob story. Which makes me wonder why you guys are crying about Obama all the time.

    Then you have the current guy is spending even more deflection. Which excuses everything his predecessors ever did, I suppose. Extra entertaining considering the thread wasn't started with one of his budgets. Bonus points for people who can work both "the president isn't responsible" and "the current guy is worse" arguments into the same post.

    And of course the ever classic "you don't even vote" descent into a whinefest about anarchy. Someday, just for kicks, I'm going to post in a "What's For Dinner" thread and see if I can turn it into a "discussion" on anarchy.

    Oh, I see. Style, not substance. :)

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. I will be laughing my ass off in Panama when Obama puts fools like you in concentration camps. You can still blame Bush though. What's for dinner will be crow if you are lucky.

    BTW, I do not excuse the horrible job Bush did controlling spending. He screwed up big time. You are the only idiot that thinks otherwise. We now have a Prez that will increase the deficit 3 fold. From 500 billion to 1.8 trillion in one year. You got that sparky. Next fisical year 8/2010 the budget will increase another 1 trillion dollars. That is not sustainable and will bankrupt the country.

    Bush also kept us safe for 7 1/2 years. It did not happen by accident and I am surprised we have not been hit again. He got that part right.

    Keep your own social diseases to yourself, please.

    We do ask that people control the size of pictures they post. It's not just Sonna, it's kind of an unwritten board rule.
