    This is a fucking joke, right? right?

    •  consider this is the fruit of Nixon, Bush I and (10+ / 0-)

      GWB or some 20 years of neglect and deregulation.  Consider that Clinton and Obama have had to work around GOP obstructions and the problem is the Democrats have not been able to hold a majority in all branches for a long period of time as the GOP has.  The problem is massive and 5 years is hardly sufficient to fix it.

      My grandfather used to tell me about caring for equipment, I could spend 10 cents and 10 minutes on grease and oil or 10 hours and $100 on repairs.  With regulation and infrastructure deterioration we are at the 10 hr/ $100 level and continuing to suffer

    •  You are blaming Obama for not cleaning up Bush's (6+ / 0-)

      fuckups fast enough. Just like with the economy, and the wars, you Bush apologists cannot defend the horrible conditions that Bush's disasterous policies left the country in, so you blame Obama because he hasn't completely rectified all of Bush's fuckups.

      I know. That's all you've got. Pathetic.

      The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

        if he had ordered a 90 day stand down in Afghanistan and Iraq, and pulled troops offshore or to the UAE or europe,
        there would have been a lot more bandwidth to work domestic issues.

        Foreign crises tend to suck the air out of the room

        took some fucking responsibility for.. something. anything!

        I'm no Bush apologist..   You and most others around here are Obama apologists, if anything.

        I just think the statute of limitations on blaming Bush for everything under the sun is running out.  It's been Obama's responsibility for over 4 years now.  Tell him to fix it and quit bitching about the past administrations.

        We have umpteen new agencies under the umbrella of Homeland Security.  How about all those thousands of government employees wasting tens of billions of dollars do something useful?

        Oh yeah.. they can't because.. because.. BUSH!
