Obama, where is deficit halving you promised?

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

I protested against evil LBJ's evil war against Vietnam because it was evil. I was 15 years old.

Hen V, you were pro-war re Vietnam. You joined the military, right? Did you also vote for and support LBJ?

And your thoughts on Iraq 2003, Meade? Remember, no one who supported that war and the way it was "paid" for gets to complain about the deficit. Ever.

Who complained about the deficit and made it a promise to halve it by the end of his first term, Stu? Did you vote for him? Both times?

Remember, no one who supported collective bargaining for public sector employees and the way it was "paid for" gets to complain about Act 10. Ever.

Yeah, good luck with that.

In the Iraq War thread, Meade has been big on copypasting quotes from other people, elsewhere, that implicitly support the war. But he won't say anything in his own words. All he'll do is cast barbs at those who opposed the war, from behind the shelter of other people's words.

I personally suspect Meade knows damn well that Bush's war was a stupid mistake. But since he can't bring himself to admit it, we should go by his behavior here, and assume that Meade still enthusiastically supports the decision to go to war and Bush's handling of it. Presumably, if it were up to Meade and other Republicans like Meade, we'd still have a hundred thousand US troops occupying Iraq.

Local incompetent Lawrence Meade can't even make the obvious joke.

President Obama was misheard. He said "having" a deficit.

You had one job! If you're going to drop the ball like this I might have to talk to your wife about paying me to post this bullshit instead of you.
