    So am I to understand that Bush's record deficit spending was all the result of the minority democratic congress??? That's a new one. I haven't even heard Rush or Hannity come up with that!

    As I recall....the filibuster program was in full force and to get any meaningful legislation passed he had to go tit for tat.

    Even trying to work with Dems like Ted Kennedy on education got nothing but a knife in the back.

    Your extremely narrow recollection of the political situation and cynical view of Bush in general have masked the fact that Bush tried to go the bipartisan route in many legislative issues and look what happened. Why people like you get so bent out of shape about a repub president who emulated the liberal policy of spend, spend, spend is beyond me.

    Goes to show you.....this type of fiscal policy is bad...no matter who's sitting in the Oval office.

    If you check the numbers, you will see that the growth in the deficit began to slow when the Dems won control of Congress under Bush.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "people like you", but speaking for myself, I don't like deficit spending by any leadership in the whitehouse. Many "people like you" seem to have a problem with it only now that Obama is in office. Always makes me wonder what is true fiscal conservatism, and what is petty party politics. Record deficits are foolish whether its a dem or repub in office, as you point out.

    Hell, I can't even enjoy a sandwich at 2am.
    Interesting that looking back over your last 100 post none of them came between 11pm and 4 am but whatever
    I hae no problem with the money spent on her. As has been pointed out a lot of people cannot/could not afford to "dress the part" on their own. I would be way out classes if someone did not help me out in the same situation. No win for her, dress in what you can afford and be mocked or dress in what they buy for you and be mocked

    Not much going on from 4am to 11pm either!

    All I'm sayin is portraying youself as a common folk, then donning 150k clothes didn't go over well with many folks.

    Its far from me to mock anyone who hunts all day, retires in their 40s, and signs a multi-million dollar book deal for two weeks work! Hell, I'm green with envy! I'm just waiting to see her pull up to a press conference in a F350 with a chassis mount 12 holer.

    Out of all the National politicians, she the the most likely to do it. I can see why you would have a problem with her.
