Shield Bill won’t shield administration

May 24, 2013

A politician can pull off only so many well-timed maneuvers before even his staunchest supporters must admit the efforts do not pass the smell test....

Also, Integrity.

I don't mind your taking shots at me, but I think it's pretty low to belittle Big Bird, my favorite commentator and a beloved icon of the Nation.

Big Bird does, however, remind me of many of the Foxy News Babes: same color hair, same hairdo, same goggly eyes, same inane blather .

Integrity: I apologize for correcting your erroneous posts. Facts and perspective seem to annoy you.

Just relax and be grumpy.

I'd rather watch Fox News than get my news from Sesame Street. Just heard last night again - housing at a 3 year high-3 years ago it was the worst housing market in 80 years. Sven: my point - you have to take the good with the bad and everything is not "ducky's and bunny's". But, it's hard to see through those rose-colored glasses you always have on. See my 2nd post - the best thing Mr. O can and has done is get the heck out of the way and let the businessmen and private sector get back on track.

Not so fast, Integrity.

1. Gas prices: Adjusted for inflation, the average price for gasoline was $2.98 for Bush and for Obama it was $3.04.

2. Stocks: For the first four years of the Obama Era, stocks rose 85%. Under "W" they went "down"...12%. And, for 2013, "The Hot Soaring Obama Stock Market" has advanced 15+% higher.

3. Unemployment: Bush left office with unemployment at 7.8%. Today's unemployment rate is 7.5%.

4. Jobs by sector: Oh, please ask about private sector job growth versus public sector job growth. Please. Please. Please.

5. Housing: Read the papers. In major markets housing prices are boffo. The rest will follow.

You'll need to listen to Rush and watch Foxy News to hear the usual grumbling and niggling. But, the rest of the country is experiencing recovery from the Bush Financial Disaster.

So, aren't you happy at all the good news?

Of course not. How could you be? You enjoy kvetching.

Thank goodness for the gay marriage and gun control debates - it distracted the politicians so they would stop meddling in the economy which they seem to do more harm than good with a lot of tax money wasted.

What about...1) $4.00 gas 2)increased national debt at record level 3) unemployment hanging at record high yet 4) job growth continually under projections 5) consumer good price increases at record levels (food, etc) 6) Corporate profits at record highs-but he "saved" a bunch of them 7) And stop exaggerating a couple - housing has not "rebounded big-time" and the stock market is not "soaring". Both are starting to gain, mainly because politicians(both sides) started to get the heck out of the way and let the private sector recover.

You're so right, again, Avoice. Right-wing, that is. Here are a few "anythings" you've missed the past four-plus years:

1. Out of Iraq 2. Getting out out of Afghanistan 3. Healthcare for all 4. Avoided depression 5. Saved auto industry 6. Spearheaded gay marriage 7. Whacked Osama bin laden 8. Stock market soaring 9. Consumer confidence back 10: Housing on the rebound big-time

I suppose you would credit the Republican "leadership" with the above?

svensota has to blame Bush or Reagan as this administration has never been a leader in anything.

So the current adminstration "can" be corrupt, just so they aren't as corrupt as one of the previous ones...

Thanks for the clarification.

"As dirty a Washington insider as any who came before him."

A-ha-ha-ha. Bush1? Bush2? Nixon? Ford? Johnson? Reagan? Bubba? (Peanut gets a pass, by the way.)


Shadow has it nailed, as he always does.
