Nah, he ain't missed that much.
Problem is, if he would have even thought about reducing government spending, he'd have been demagogued to hell and back by the Democrats, and been accused of all sorts of evil things...kind of like the Republicans were in the 1995 budget wars. Instead, he caved and signed all sorts of pork-laden spending bills into law. The previous administration did the same thing.

Tax cuts do not work if you do not curb spending. Plain and simple. And it's about time a real fiscal conservative got into power and really stood up for what he believed in.

Listen steeltwink, while you were crunching crumbs and drooling on yourself in your playpen, this great American stared down the greatest threat to life, liberty, and the American way we had seen since the big war. On his birthday, quietly express your appreciation.

And while you're once again flaunting your colossal ignorance, note that it is congress that sets budgets. One of the hallmarks of the Tip O'Neill years was pronouncing the President's budgets "DOA". http://www.gvsu.edu/hauenstein/index...0F33F982D5E4A2 http://spectator.org/archives/2009/1...-declaration-g and again http://www.americanpolitics.com/20020319Hersh.html

Let's face it, cherry picking the bad and demonizing republicans is the only way libs can justify voting for democrats.

They cannot win on principles.

Most everything liberals stand for for runs contrary to the principals on which this great country was founded.

Thank you for proving my point.

Does that make you feel better about voting for Obama?
