    Ted Cruz or GED Failurebot Scott Walker can do as much damage to the economy in four years as what the BushT@rd did in eight. Maybe even less if either of them were to take the AirHead Tramp Sarah Palin for a running mate?

    You mean like tax cuts for the wealthy that didn't "create" a single private sector job anywhere in ten years?

    Walker or Turd Cruz could solve this problem overnight, of course!

    Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record

    By WSJ Staff

    President George W. Bush entered office in 2001 just as a recession was starting, and is preparing to leave in the middle of a long one. That’s almost 22 months of recession during his 96 months in office.

    His job-creation record won’t look much better. The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years, a fraction of the 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton’s administration and only slightly better than President George H.W. Bush did in his four years in office.

    Here’s a look at job creation under each president since the Labor Department started keeping payroll records in 1939. The counts are based on total payrolls between the start of the month the president took office (using the final payroll count for the end of the prior December) and his final December in office.

    Because the size of the economy and labor force varies, we also calculate in percentage terms how much the total payroll count expanded under each president. The current President Bush, once taking account how long he’s been in office, shows the worst track record for job creation since the government began keeping records. –Sudeep Reddy

    1.8 at a glorified community college like A &M is about the equivalent of taking three years to get past fifth grade in an educated northern state.

    So you're saying that in 2005 Bush's butt buddies from Enron had already been walking around free as birds for three years but the Executive Branch priority was all about making sure that credit card companies would get their pound of flesh instead?

    That kind of figures, doesn't it?

    Harold Hamm: Keystone XL no longer needed
    Published: August 26, 2013

    For going on five years, oil and natural gas industry officials have stressed the importance of the Keystone XL pipeline designed to carry crude oil from Alberta’s oil sands to refineries along the Gulf Coast.

    Oklahoma’s pre-emiment oilman, Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm, joined the chorus after developer TransCanada agreed to add an on-ramp to transport oil from the Bakken Shale in North Dakota and Montana.

    But apparently Hamm has changed his mind on the project.

    “It’s not critical any longer,” Hamm told National Journal Daily‘s Amy Harder.

    When it comes to the oft-repeated contention that Alberta dilbit had anything at all to do with the train explosions in Quebec, Virginia, North Dakota and most recently West Virginia, then Fox is either deliberately LYING or else their fact checking department doesn't even have the critical thinking capabilities of a farm animal.

    (This is way over most Fox News Ret@rds' empty heads, but the Canadian stuff doesn't even catch fire at normal temperatures and pressures.)

    In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

    Fox editors then tried to force Akre and Wilson to continue to produce the distorted story. When they refused and threatened to report Fox's actions to the FCC, they were both fired.

    "It is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly. "

    During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves

  • I love the part where the Oregon Tea Party a$$hat collects rent on a duplex and still stiffs his mortgage lender for three years anyway? That's every bit as Republican as Enron and this six toed imbecile is clearly bound for greatness within the Koch party as a direct result.

    I" am a HUGE Walker fan. Please run him with for President with either Palin of Cruz on the ticket.

    He could do more long term damage than Bush II and that's really saying something, you should be very proud of him!

    (Especially when it comes out why he was kicked out of Marquette..)

    By the time she gets into the white house, KochStone XL should have trashed half of Nebraska.
    Keystone I leaks 100 times as often as predicted
    In its 2008 environmental risk assessment for the Keystone I segment, the predecessor to Keystone XL, TransCanada forecasted the pipeline would leak no more than 1.4 times a decade. In reality, it spilled 14 times in its first year alone, and became the newest oil pipeline in the U.S. to be shut down by federal regulators as a safety risk. And that’s not the worst of TransCanada’s safety concerns. In July 2011, TransCanada’s state-of-the-art Bison natural gas pipeline exploded. The blast destroyed a 60-foot section, with a shock wave that could be heard 30 miles away.
    Thompson hasn’t been fishing much. Ever since Exxon Mobil’s Pegasus pipeline burst in March and spilled an estimated 210,000 gallons of Canadian heavy crude oil two miles from his house, he’s had headaches of preternatural intensity, so bad they wake him up in the middle of the night. He has nosebleeds, and hemorrhoids even though he’s only 36; there’s a rash on his neck that has only gotten worse in the eight months since the spill; and some days he feels so weak that he can hardly get out of bed. He estimates that he has lost almost 35 pounds since the rupture, falling from a fit 220 down to 185. When he went to see a doctor in April, he was told he has a mysterious spot on one lung—but he hasn’t been able to afford to go back.

    Hundreds of people in this working-class town of 2,200 have complained of symptoms like Thompson’s. And their maladies—respiratory disorders, nausea, fatigue, nosebleeds, bowel issues, throbbing headaches—echo the ones that appeared in Marshall, Michigan, where an Enbridge Energy pipeline burst in 2010. The two pipelines were carrying the same kind of oil: a heavy crude, or bitumen, mined in the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, which is thicker and rawer than the oil extracted in the United States.

    So Koch could easily afford $250,000 for every Senate vote he got just last week not Eight CENTS a barrel spill insurance going forward?

    He also had a speech prepared accepting full responsability for a failed D-Day Invasion. I don't have a problem with a guy who carried that kind of a load bringing God into the workplace myself. Who remembers that picture of him with the group of paratroopers who were expected to see 80 percent casualties?

    My favorite Eisehower quote refers to self-serving Tea Party @$$clowns
    "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

    Maybe some of these cats are from the 1.3 Million immigrants that Chapter 11 failure machine George W. Bust chased OUT of the country when he cratered the US Economy in 2008?

    DALLAS – Illegal immigrants are returning home to Mexico in numbers not seen for decades — and the Mexican government may have to deal with a crush on its social services and lower wages once the immigrants arrive.

    The Mexican Consulate's office in Dallas is seeing increasing numbers of Mexican nationals requesting paperwork to go home for good, especially parents who want to know what documentation they'll need to enroll their children in Mexican schools.

    "Those numbers have increased percentage-wise tremendously," said Enrique Hubbard, the Mexican consul general in Dallas. "In fact, it's almost 100 percent more this year than it was the previous two years."

    The illegal immigrant population in the U.S. has dropped 11 percent since August of last year, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. Its research shows 1.3 million illegal immigrants have returned to their home countries.

    Some say illegal immigrants are leaving because a soft economy has led to fewer jobs, causing many laborers to seek work elsewhere

    So Fox really thinks they can sell this loser as another G.O.P. "success story?"

    They will use the same cast that portrayed Kochstone XL as the lynchpin of US Energy Independence right up until the Senate had to vote on it, bet?

    An amendment by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) to keep the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline American-made and its oil for American markets was defeated 34-64, on strong Republican opposition. The amendment to the unrelated highway bill was designed to expose the hypocrisy of Keystone XL advocates who have argued that the foreign-owned, foreign-oil pipeline was a patriotic American priority. As Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) admitted before the vote, the passage of this amendment would doom the project — because Keystone XL’s owner, TransCanada, intends to build the pipeline with foreign steel and ship its foreign oil for export to foreign markets.

    Self made WHAT, lang? White trash train wrecks?

    McGinniss reports that the Palins told the original owner that they were going to cut a path through her property. "Todd told her, very plainly, that Sarah was mayor and they could do whatever they wanted, and it would be a mistake for her to try and stop them." The Palins even put up a fence with the ugly back side facing the neighbor's house.

    She can't cook $nit. She couldn't do grilled cheese. She'd burn water." John Bitney, the husband of a woman who took care of Palin's kids, notes that when Todd was out, "I'd walk into that kitchen and Bristol and Willow would be sitting there with a burnt pot of Kraft Mac and cheese on the stove and they'd be trying to open one of those Ramen noodle packs, and Sarah would be up in her bedroom with the door closed saying she didn't want to be disturbed."
