I always find it amusing when liberals complain about shipping jobs overseas. Koch Industries has done a great job of keeping jobs in the U.S.and of paying union wages, but the liberals are calling for a boycott. Microsoft, Apple and Nike on the other hand use pretty much exclusively slave labor in communist countries for production,and the liberals love them.

You wrote "Our Republican congress is in session for a few days now", but it has been a couple of hours, not a few days. They started at noon today, and I am sure they have procedural necessities before any bills are introduced.

You wrote "no new wars were started", however politifact seems to disagree with you.
"Lizza said that Obama has bombed seven countries to Bush’s four. Depending on your view of Bush’s reported drone strike into Yemen, he may have slightly undercounted Bush’s tally. Both presidents also may have bombed the Philippines"
I should also point out that Bush did not "start war" in Afghanistan or Iraq, Congress did. Obama on the other hand has never sought Congressional approval for his military campaigns.

Bush and Obama both supported the policy of artificially lowering interest rates to artificially inflate the stock market, thus creating the current "bubble" and precipitating the impending crash, it is laughable to assume that a fast growing DJIA is a good thing. They both use the military when they should be using diplomacy. They differ slightly on dealing with suspected "terrorists", Bush tortured them, Obama executes them without a trial. They also differ on their policies towards marijuana, the Obama administration raided more medical marijuana facilities on one day in September of 2012 than the Bush administration did in eight years. They have more similarities than differences, Obama has continued just about all of Bush's failed policies, bailouts, foreign wars, and domestic spying.

The letter following the name seems to be the only thing that matters to anybody these days. Democrats are still blaming Bush, and ignoring the fact that other than the ACA, Obama has just continued the Bush policies. Republicans are complaining about Obama and ignoring the fact that he is continuing the same policies as Bush.

That reminds me of CNN asking if asteroid near misses were caused by global warming.

No I do not think she was part of that, but I have not talked to her today. She is a big of Guy Fawkes day.

Hawkman:

There are 352 bills stalled in the Senate 40 of them are related to the ACA. Many of the others have bipartisan support, and some are even Democrat sponsored bills.

I do not follow Abrahamic religion, but it seems to me that if "God" sent a savior to earth, He/She could have sent one to Cronos or Mars.

This quote was written when Democrats still supported Jim Crowe and the Klan, are you sure that is the party you want to be associated with?
