I can see why you do not quote the people with whom you disagree!!!!

You prefer to distort what they are saying.

@Frank Apisa,
I am not exactly sure how he is distorting what I said in my posts, nevertheless, think about it, maybe there are all kinds of qualifiers, but it seems that before Bush, the US was in a heck of a better shape all the way around.

You said: "Oh, give it up CJ, we haven't had so good since he left, I wish he could run again, I wouldn't care if he brought Monica with him for entertainment."

Your point was that when Bill Clinton was in office, he put our country into decent shape...and that we have not had it so good since he left. (Which I seconded!)

Baldimo paraphrased your comments into, "the US hasn't had it so good?"

NOTE the mocking question mark!

And then he ended his comment with the mocking, "Wow!"

That is because he (Clinton)moved to the middle. Obama is moving farther left.

@Frank Apisa,
You do realize that we were in a rescission at the end of Billy's 2nd term. We also found out about all the companies cooking the books after Bush came into office. Cooking the books and making companies look good went on under Clintons watch. The military was in shambles after Clinton was in office. Or do you so quickly forget the amount of money that had to go into the military after Bush took office. The military didn't have enough uniforms for all the soldiers, they didn't have the proper equipment for their jobs. Don't blow smoke up my ass.

@coldjoint,
So was Reagan a liberal then? Despite the shut down of the economy, Clinton enjoyed far more cooperation with his congress than Obama, it makes a difference when one party makes it their only agenda to just say no. Moreover, Obama is not that far left as many leftist have stated.

If we were in a recession than it downright stupid for George Bush to take money out of the budget to give it back to the people.

Makes it their agenda not to compromise on anything. Which is exactly what the Democrats are doing. The Republicans are not there to be ignored. And blocking legislation they don't like is what they, and any other party, should do.

Obama is taking money from the budget and giving it to people that never paid any in. Does that make sense?

Clinton knew how to work with people. He didn't give the GOP a my way or the highway attitude. The GOP shutdown the govt at least twice because Clinton refused to work with the GOP. After the govt shutdowns, Clinton started working with the GOP, and those just happen to be the times of growth for the US in the mid-late 90's.

Talk about blowing smoke up our ass. So which soldiers had no uniforms? Which equipment were they missing?

Bush took us to war and clearly our military was just fine for that. It was 2 wars that required a build up which Bush failed to pay.

@parados,
There was a total mismatch on uniforms. I've seen the pictures and deployed with soldiers who didn't have a full set of uniforms. When Iraq started there was a huge blowup by the left, that those soldiers didn't have the right equipment. They would have BDU tops, and Desert camo pants, there was a total lack of body armor for our soldiers. This was all due to a lack of funding to the military during the Clinton years. I have a friend who was in the 101st in the late 90's and he has told me about training in the field and his unit not having money for blanks. They had to run around the field shouting Bang because of this.

@Baldimo,
You sure like to rewrite history Baldimo. The GOP shut down the government because Clinton refused their "my way or the highway" attitude. It was only after the GOP shut down the government that they realized they had to compromise because of the public's response.

And I have a friend that bought a dog in South America that turned out to be a giant rat and I have another friend that bought a cactus that exploded with a million black widow spiders.

No such thing existed in the US army. The story is actually about British soldiers and includes pictures.

That would be a case of the army not preparing for the right war. It certainly wasn't a lack of uniforms as you claimed. Soldiers had jungle camo instead of desert camo. If we suddenly got into a war in SE Asia, we would probably find we have the wrong camo again.

I find that hysterical. On one hand you blame Clinton for lack of funding and then you talk about the shut down which was the GOP wanting to reduce government spending.

According to former child sex slave Virginia Roberts and a class action lawsuit against convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, former President Bill Clinton was present during sex parties involving up to twenty underage girls at Epstein’s secluded island in the Caribbean. That flight records show Clinton was flown on numerous occasions to the island on Epstein’s private jet. Clinton had a close relationship with an employee of Epstein’s who compiled thousands of photos of nude young girls posed in lewd positions. And these photos were used as a catalog for Epstein to loan out his girls to powerful politicians and British royalty, including Bill

[VDARE.com Note: Michelle Malkin isn't responsible for the second half of the title above, or our decision to run photographs of all the accused pols. Rather than tell you which of them are minorities, it would be faster to say which are white: Gordon Fox, of Rhode Island, and Keith Farnham of Illinois. (Fox is gay, if that matters.) Also one of the five mayors mentioned in paragraph four is white: Bob Filner of San Diego. To quote USA Today, "The challenge of dealing with minority officials who run afoul of the law is a pre-eminently Democratic problem..."]

Has Nancy Pelosi seen a newspaper lately? (Pro tip, hon: Like the Obamacare monstrosity, you have to read it to find out what's in it.) I'd love to see her face in the wake of the veritable epidemic of Democratic corruption now sweeping the country. Pelosi's blink count must be off the charts.

I'm going to make it easy on Pelosi and put all of the latest cases in one handy rogue's gallery reference list. But let's not be naive. It's clear to me that the Barack Obama/Eric Holder DOJ is clearing the decks before the midterms. Prediction: The FBI's GOP corruption shoe will drop right before the elections for maximum distraction and damage. For now, let's take stock of the jackassery:

imageThe Dirty Democratic Mayors' Club: Charlotte, N.C., Mayor Patrick Cannon, who bragged about partying with the Obamas to help grease the wheels for city projects, was arrested this week on federal corruption and influence-peddling charges. He's accused of accepting gobs of cash payoffs and Las Vegas trips.

The bust follows former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's conviction in January on corruption charges; former Trenton Mayor Tony Mack's February conviction on cash bribes for a downtown parking garage; and former San Diego mayor and serial groper Bob Filner's disgraceful resignation after conviction on sexual harassment-related charges; former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's conviction on extortion, bribery and conspiracy charges; and former Birmingham, Ala., Mayor Larry Langford's corruption and bribery conviction.

imageCalifornia state Democratic Sen. Leland Yee, gun grabber by day, alleged arms-trafficking gangsta by night: Yee made a decades-long career out of sanctimoniously demonizing gun owners and railing against the Second Amendment. He was arrested this week on corruption charges after an FBI sting found probable cause to believe Yee had conducted wire fraud and engaged in a conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally import firearms. The Chinatown pol went so far as to discuss "details of the specific types of weapons" with a prospective donor. Yee is currently a candidate for California's secretary of state office.
LeAnnaPennsylvania state Democratic Sen. LeAnna Washington, party animal: This week, a judge ruled that the Keystone State could proceed with a trial against Washington, who reportedly forced her legislative staff for eight years to use taxpayer time and money for an annual birthday party whose proceeds were diverted to her campaign account. She is charged with felony theft of services and felony conflict of interest. More than a half-dozen former employees blew the whistle. "I am the f---ing senator," she screamed at one staffer who objected. "I do what the f--- I want, and ain't nobody going to change me."
FoxRhode Island state Democratic House Speaker Gordon Fox, multiple-raid target: The powerful Democrat, beloved by the left for his gay-marriage activism, announced last weekend that he is stepping down from office after FBI raids on his home and work office. Fox is the target of several criminal investigations by the U.S. attorney's office, FBI, IRS and state police. Mum's the word so far on the nature of the alleged criminal activity involved.
CalderonCalifornia state Democratic Sen. Ronald Calderon, all in the corrupted family: Calderon is on a paid leave of absence after being hit with a 24-count federal indictment for bribery and corruption. His brother also was charged with multiple counts of money laundering and influence peddling. Prosecutors allege the legislator accepted nearly $100,000 in bribes, plane trips, gourmet meals and golf games in exchange for political favors. He also is accused of paying his daughter $39,000 for a phony office job and paying $40,000 in "consulting" fees for a campaign website that didn't exist.

Roderick Wright
California state Democratic Sen. Roderick Wright, lying liar: Also on paid leave, the entrenched Los Angeles-area politician is now fighting his January conviction on felony perjury, false declaration of candidacy and fraudulent voting charges. Wright claimed to live in a rented room in an Inglewood home within his district, but the jury found his true residence was outside the district in upscale Baldwin Hills. The jury found he lied on candidacy declarations and voter registration documents and fraudulently voted in five elections.
New York state Democratic Assemblyman Bill Scarborough,New York state Democratic Assemblyman Bill Scarborough, shady jet-setter: The FBI and state authorities raided his home and offices as part of a probe into his travel voucher practices. He blamed a "tabloid hit job" by the New York Post over questionable per diem claims totaling $60,000.
Democratic House Rep. Keith FarnhamIllinois state Democratic House Rep. Keith Farnham, child porn probe suspect: After sponsoring two bills to increase penalties for child porn possession, Farnham was the subject of state and federal raids last week on his home ... for possession of child porn. Over the weekend, he resigned his seat citing "serious health issues." There's a euphemism.

Remember: Nancy Pelosi famously promised to "drain the moral swamp" and end the "culture of corruption." She cast herself and her minions as America's political clean-up crew. But once again, the culture of corruption boomerang has swung back around to smack Democrats in their smug mugs. The cynical Swamp Drainers just hope you forget it all by election time. Don't.
