The way to solve the debt problem is war with Iran.


Huge sarcasm tag.

Avoiding 'historic' embarrassment: Dems move Obama’s speech to smaller venue

Organizers for the Democratic National Convention were confident they would fill every one of the 73,778 seats in Charlotte’s mammoth Bank of America Stadium by Thursday night.

However, as reported Tuesday by The Daily Mail, organizers are now “poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium” by moving the location of his speech to the more modest Time Warner Cable Arena, “which has a capacity of just over 20,000.”

Welcome to the official website of the 2012 Republican National Convention.

History is being made in Tampa this week as 2,286 delegates and 2,125 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories gather together to nominate the next president of the United States at the 40th Republican National Convention.
i guess the RNC stuffed them all in a volkswagon beetle. how'd they get em out? toss in a bar of soap.

No, they have plenty of buses. They don't have people. After "prep" for the DNC, there aren't enough vagrants, felons, pimps, ladies of the evening, gangsters, or various other "registered" democrats in the area to fill the stadium. The real people wouldn't cross the street to see him. But dey be scramblin' The city was abuzz last evening over the crisis. Film at 11.

The Kenyan couldn't fill half the venue for his 2012 campaign kickoff that he had previously filled for a Strickland rally.

The Sun is setting on the interloper's administration.

Local health ordinances preclude the participation of many of their "registered" voters because they are deceased.

That huge projected surplus provides the underpinning of all the administration's tax-cut and spending plans, Mr. Bush said in his recorded weekly radio address.

"A surplus in tax revenue, after all, means that taxpayers have been overcharged," the president said. "And usually when you've been overcharged, you expect to get something back." The surplus figure "counts more than any other" in the budget, he said.


http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-274334.html

In January 2001, the CBO projected that the federal government would erase its debt in 2006 and, by 2011, the U.S. government would be $2.3 trillion in the black. The reality, of course, has turned out to be far different.

http://www.pewtrusts.org/uploadedFil...since_2001.pdf

Those were the days - lose the underpinnings but keep the tax cuts

Any party that controlled the Congress and Presidency and put 2 wars + Medicare Part D on the credit card while refusing to budge on the 2001 tax cuts should have a steaming cup of STFU when it comes to lecturing anybody about fiscal responsibility
