Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Only you, Fact-Free, have a "massive degree of uncertainty". If you had one ounce of business sense you would be using the cheap money to invest in your business. Stay in your Living Room World with your "massive degree of uncertainty" while the rest of America takes advantage of the recovery.

But, Fact-Free, be sure to send the Fed your calculations why they are wrong, I'm sure they will be very interested in your analysis!

Of course Republicans like Fact-Free are defecating on themselves today. If this was Romney the spin would be unbelievable. Fact-Free, whose business is thriving, will never admit that Obama is doing great. He is so hung up on 501c Tea Part Koch Brother applications at the IRS he is blinded. Ignore the Dow, Fact-Free, be like RS and miss the economic wave.

How can you holler "go Barack, go" when his administration has presided over the destruction of American workforce?

The ONLY bright spot is that manufacturing has gotten cheaper here at home due to the energy boom and your man Barack is doing everything in his power, (and beyond his constitutional power), to derail it.

You can continue to defend the indefensible if you like but it just makes you look crazy.

Is it the massive degree of uncertainty his policy initiatives have created? Last time I looked that was why American Corporations are sitting on trillions in cash.

Is it the QE policy that is creating a new stock bubble and widening the income gap?

It must be the ACA, that's caused all sorts of things to run smoothly right? OOPS, he delayed the implementation of most of that nightmare until after the midterms.

Help me out here jaxspp.

And, since you do give credit to the president for the 288K jobs, what, exactly did he do to create those jobs? What policy of is is responsible for the added jobs? Be specific jaxspp. (That means source your "facts")

Jaxspp has no credibility left at all. His hero, President Obama, has less credibility than he does.

The lies are catching up to this administration and no amount of lack luster economic "growth" or diversionary B.S. is going to sway the American people.

There is not one initiative that the administration can point to and say "that's a success". Worst president ever.

"...Carter created 10.5 million jobs in 4 years, Bush 1 million jobs in 8 years..."

Jaxspp, again, states facts out of context.

Carter's economy had room to grow, Bush's economy was at near full employment. Come on man. You have to be smarter than that.

Our economy needed 300K PER MONTH just to keep pace with new workers. I'm all for the jobs news but don't make it out to be good. It is not. It is a reflection of an absolutely failed economic "plan".

WSJ- "Nonfarm employment advanced a seasonally adjusted 288,000 last month, the Labor Department said Thursday. May's gain was revised up to 224,000 from 217,000, while April's improvement was upgraded to 304,000 from 282,000. That was the strongest gain since January 2012. "

GOP declares state of emergency.

I guess Jax' eloquent cut and paste job from sourgrapesdotdoofus illustrates why Reagan was voted #1.

Good job Jax.

"Reagan nearly tripled the federal budget deficit. During the Reagan years, the debt increased to nearly $3 trillion, “roughly three times as much as the first 80 years of the century had done altogether.” Reagan enacted a major tax cut his first year in office and government revenue dropped off precipitously. Despite the conservative myth that tax cuts somehow increase revenue, the government went deeper into debt and Reagan had to raise taxes just a year after he enacted his tax cut. Despite ten more tax hikes on everything from gasoline to corporate income, Reagan was never able to get the deficit under control."

"Reagan grew the size of the federal government tremendously. Reagan promised “to move boldly, decisively, and quickly to control the runaway growth of federal spending,” but federal spending “ballooned” under Reagan. He bailed out Social Security in 1983 after attempting to privatize it, and set up a progressive taxation system to keep it funded into the future. He promised to cut government agencies like the Department of Energy and Education but ended up adding one of the largest — the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, which today has a budget of nearly $90 billion and close to 300,000 employees. He also hiked defense spending by over $100 billion a year to a level not seen since the height of the Vietnam war. "

"Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Reagan signed into law a bill that made any immigrant who had entered the country before 1982 eligible for amnesty. The bill was sold as a crackdown, but its tough sanctions on employers who hired undocumented immigrants were removed before final passage. The bill helped 3 million people and millions more family members gain American residency. It has since become a source of major embarrassment for conservatives."

"Reagan illegally funneled weapons to Iran. Reagan and other senior U.S. officials secretly sold arms to officials in Iran, which was subject to a an arms embargo at the time, in exchange for American hostages. Some funds from the illegal arms sales also went to fund anti-Communist rebels in Nicaragua — something Congress had already prohibited the administration from doing. When the deals went public, the Iran-Contra Affair, as it came to be know, was an enormous political scandal that forced several senior administration officials to resign."

"Reagan vetoed a comprehensive anti-Apartheid act. which placed sanctions on South Africa and cut off all American trade with the country. Reagan’s veto was overridden by the Republican-controlled Senate. Reagan responded by saying “I deeply regret that Congress has seen fit to override my veto,” saying that the law “will not solve the serious problems that plague that country.”

"Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden. Reagan fought a proxy war with the Soviet Union by training, arming, equipping, and funding Islamist mujahidin fighters in Afghanistan. Reagan funneled billions of dollars, along with top-secret intelligence and sophisticated weaponry to these fighters through the Pakistani intelligence service. The Talbian and Osama Bin Laden — a prominent mujahidin commander — emerged from these mujahidin groups Reagan helped create, and U.S. policy towards Pakistan remains strained because of the intelligence services’ close relations to these fighters. In fact, Reagan’s decision to continue the proxy war after the Soviets were willing to retreat played a direct role in Bin Laden’s ascendancy."

Carter created 10.5 million jobs in 4 years, Bush 1 million jobs in 8 years. Bears repeating. Those with no stake in the Iraq war love Bush, not their blood or anyone they knew dying for no reason whatsoever. The dead and wounded are just numbers to them.

Republicans couldn't name 3 presidents if you spotted them Lincoln and Reagan.
