    Texas just put Mitt “ahead”. Okay, Texans lost at the Alamo. Texas then joined the union, and quickly quit, to lose again. Lindon Johnson, Texan, gave us Tonkin and a senseless war. GHW Bush gave Saddam the go ahead to invade Kuwait, another war. G.W. Bush gave us “WMDs” and the most expensive war in history, and well Afghanistan the longest war in history. So, if Texas is giving us Mitt, shouldn’t we wonder if we can afford another recommendation from Texas??

    Yeah. I’m sick and tired of my tax money going to pay 80 year old grandmothers for their prescription drugs because their kids are just too cheap to pay for it themselves!!(sarcasm, just in case anybody wondered)

    My point is: Texas, Trump, and Bain capital are all the use of “attitude” to keep us from observing real impacts of their actions, and THEY have been the ones using “distraction”. (Yes, I’m aware LBJ was a Democrat, but at least he ran a “variety store”, and not a sole source operation.)

    One of the myths going around is that Obama is a big spender.He compares favorably to Eisenhower.

    Republicants want to put everything on the credit card so they can claim not to be big spenders.

    If healthcare is emptying peoples banks. Blame the health insurance companies. The health care law is a (CONservative) mandate that people have to BUY INSURANCE from PRIVATE insurance companies.

    that does NOT mean he has racked up more debt! He has spent less than any recent president. Of course when a large number with interest grows faster with each cycle.

    I haven’t always been so happy with Obama, but I’m just now reading a good history of the New Deal, and at this point in his first term Roosevelt was in some trouble, the economy wasn’t yet recovering, the Supreme Court had disallowed a bunch of his programs, and the progressives were mad at him because he seemed to be siding with the conservatives — and now he is widely considered the greatest president of the 20th century.

    Yes you did give them permission. It tickles me that it’s ok for them to give you a return, but when their speculation fails, you cry.
