    But it is Obama's budget.
    So it will be good.
    Right?

    And with all the good democrats in congress running the show,
    it doesn't matter because everybody's taxes will go down except for the rich.
    Right?

    And economic reality doesn't matter.
    Because we now have hope.
    Right?

    Isn't this change I can believe in?

    It never ceases to amaze how much Obama supporters will excuse for Obama but if this were Bush or McCain these policies would be unacceptable. How can you call yourself a reasonable person and ignore the facts presented here? The debt to GDP ratio that Obama is putting America into is not sustainable.

    I'm not here in this thread defending anyone or discrediting anything from your biased source. It's pointless to do so because you believe it wholeheartedly and won't even open your mind for debate. But beyond that, where in that comment you quoted of mine call out anyone in particular? Where did I mention Democrat or Republican? Where did I mention Obama? Where did I mention Bush, McCain? I didn't. However, it's blatantly obvious why you create anywhere to 5 threads a day on political rhetoric that tries to smear a political party or person.

    And by the way, it never ceases to amaze me how YOU, of all people, seem to forget that I was rather critical on Obama in the very beginning. Remember? I voted Hillary Clinton during the Primary... the same woman you ALSO wanted in office, or so you said.

    So really, Trinitroll, kindly STFU. None of these PolitiFacts affect me, my way of life, and I'm SURE it doesn't affect you. Get a fuckin' life already.

    Eh, more fucking up in what is becoming the worst first 6 months of an American presidency, if not the most polarizing.

    Maybe Obama should have gone to the prayer breakfast to pray for the economy.

    That's either the most simplistically partisan parroting ever,

    or the most ignorant and stupid comment ever.

    One or the other. Really.
