In 2008, candidate Obama had some harsh words about President George W. Bush’s fiscal policy:
The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up the national debt from 5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.
Forget for a moment that during the Bush administration, the highest offense one could commit was to question the patriotism of the far-Left.
CBS News reported Monday:
The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch.
The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.
It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.
Remember, Number-44 racked up what he deems an “unpatriotic” amount of debt in less than three years, while it took the free-spending George W. Bush administration eight years to compound an equivalent deficit.
By Obama’s reasoning, that means he must really hate this country.

Don’t get me wrong, I like Marco Rubio but it has been said before……… two wrongs don’t make a right. Reguardless of what the mainstream media or any talk shot host tells you, Marco Rubio may make a great VP but like Obama, he is not a Natural Born Citizen.
Marco Rubio is not now and never can be a Natural
Born Citizen because his parents were not citizens at the time he was born
precluding him from eligibility for President or Vice-President of the United
States as set forth in the U.S. Constitution:
Article II Section I Clause
“No person except a natural born Citizen
, or a Citizen of the
United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be
eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to
that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and
been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
If I recall correctly – which I do – the federal oath of office binds employees thusly: “I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…” I would like to take a look at that word “domestic” as it applies to what has and is occurring in America
As most of you are aware, the fascist and Marxist left has, over the years, infiltrated and virtually taken over middle and upper management of our government agencies. Land and environmental management agencies, especially, have been infested with radicals and extremists, the way the Democrat-run inner cities are infested with rats, cockroaches, and criminals. They are everywhere, in the daylight, and in the dark nooks and crannies.

Not long ago, the gun control advocates Jim and Sarah Brady visited the White House. President Barack Obama reportedly told them that he was working on new gun control schemes “under the radar.”
It’s been said that guns have two enemies — rust and politicians. Rust never sleeps, and neither do those who would seek to restrict our constitutional rights. So let me tell you about a meeting you weren’t invited to, where those people were planning an attack on our rights that’s very much “under the radar.”
It happened in July at the United Nations headquarters in New York, at a meeting to draft of what they call the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg banned clergy from the ceremony commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
Religious leaders are calling on Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reverse course and offer clergy a role in the ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
Rudy Washington, a deputy mayor in former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration, said he’s outraged. Mr. Washington organized an interfaith ceremony at Yankee Stadium shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
“This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me,” said Mr. Washington, who has suffered severe medical problems connected to the time he spent at Ground Zero.
Bloomberg also spoke out in support of the Ground Zero Mosque.
Obama has just confirmed that the DC
earthquake occurred on a rare and
obscure fault-line, apparently known
as “Bush’s Fault”. Obama also announced
that the Secret Service and
Maxine Waters continues an investigation of the
ties to the Tea Party. Conservatives however have proven
that it was
caused by the founding fathers rolling over in their graves
