Was Bush's war included in his expenditures? I think not.


Regardless what did Obama do to rectify the spending? Nothing, just continued spending...This is more of a spending spree then it is a reduction in spending....


Did you even consider researching that statement?

Here is one, but not the only, example. www.cbsnews.com...


That's swag, as in the coffee mugs, pens, T-shirts and other public relations articles that federal government agencies purchase with taxpayer money to promote their work.That's swag, as in the coffee mugs, pens, T-shirts and other public relations articles that federal government agencies purchase with taxpayer money to promote their work.


The whole interwebz is ripe for picking and you may find that it does indeed contain information that was not made up on the spot for a post in a conspiracy forum.

Why would I have to do research into something I said? Spending is continuing...Should I say more?

We were in a nose dive(In regards to spending growth), ever since Reagan. Obama has actually reduced the growth rate. We are spending less in military too. So ya, things are turning around. He's not magic.

Dude are you talking about Switzerland?...We are spending less in military? Don't forget the military contractors we pay for...

Denial in Obama spending is obvious already...Don't need to hide it...I know

Just an observation: this graph shows government spending as a percentage of GDP. The private sector is spending less; that is the definition of a recession. Therefore, what this chart shows is that the government is continuing to contribute to the economy while the private sector isn't. Draw your own politically biased conclusions from this.

well, the guy had no choice.

after the massive swindle wall street pulled on the citizens of the usa, where they literally removed trillions of dollars from the u.s. economy, obama had to do something or else let the country go broke.

millions of people lost their homes and savings. if you don't even have enough money to make a mortgage payment, how on earth are you going to pay taxes.

People have fun arguing the two party blame game. There are little differences between Bushes polices and Obamas.
We still have the patriot act, wars in the middle east, forclosures, Bank failures,City bankruptcys, layoffs,high unemployment and wage and benefit reductions. The country is BROKE in more ways than just financially. What has changed in the last 12 years ?

Can anyone give me a summary of expenditure for "personal" items- like his wife's wardrobe, compared to previous Presidents (and their wives)

Is it possible to obtain these figures?

What is the point of your post? Just because it says made in America? I guarantee you don't shop there. I'm in California. If I wanted mustard I wouldn't order it online from New York...I would just go to Trader Joe's which is 3 1/2 miles from where I live...

This store is fairly new opened in 2010?

IMO the message is very obvious.

As far as SOCA - - I was born in Compton. Raised in El Segundo/Inglewood/Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach.

President Kennedy: "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country"

You complain about manufacturers going abroad and blame it on Obama (or in part). But what are you doing to support American manufacturers?


Not Made in the USA: Trader Joe's


Steve Reiter Sep 25, 2009

Now brace yourself: Who would have guessed that a chain with over 300 locations, all of which are located within the continental United States, is not American-owned? In 1979, the all-American company was bought by Theo Albrecht, the German billionaire behind the supermarket giant Aldi, which is short for Albrecht Discount. The connection between the two markets makes a lot of sense when we break it down, though. Let’s start from the beginning. Read more: www.minyanville.com...

Should I label you a gangster now? I been in L.A. my whole life..You must be tripping. I help out my community by spending money within my community...You obviously don't seem to care how our economy as a whole is going...Someone from Compton I would expect a little better than that...

Your from the west, but yet you try to send me links made in America based out of New York?...If it was really made in America there should be more of those stores nationwide...

fun 2012

So absolutely in a completely round about way yes. It qualifies Romney on the basis that anything has to be better. ANYTHING because NOTHING has ever been worse.


That's exactly what Obama supporters said of Bush in 2008, and look where we are now. How ignorant do you have to be to think that anyone could be better, don't you learn from the past? It was only 4 years ago.

You are the one that brought up manufacturers moved off shore.

I provide you with a site that everything is Made in America. Yet - you make excuses why you can't buy from the site and support buying American made product.

I'd like to cordially invite everyone to participate in a building up as opposed to a tearing down. What is it that we ALL really want? How can we achieve it? What are the possibilities? Can we make a change and get away from all the partisan bickering? This will take ALL the political ideaologies, all of us, working together to make a change. What are the underlying currents? What do we want in a leader? How can we accomplish it?
Please, join in. No negativity at all, just good, positive ideas while searching for the ideal.
