George H.W. Bush 52% November 1991
Ronald Reagan 53% November 1983
Jimmy Carter 51% November 1979
Gerald Ford 41% November 1975
Richard Nixon 49% November 1971

Everybody knew it was doomed, Chris. That said, I love this guy and his common sense approach and straight talk. He should run in 2016.

Look, I am not happy with Obama at all, but I can't fault him for not being able to get legislation grinded out considering the poisonous atmosphere in Washington, especially since the drastic yaw to the right the country has taken after September 11th and our inability to deal with a few brown folks who hate us like adults. Most of that gas being pumped into the chamber is coming from the Republican Party.

It's like saying, "We've been trying to fire Jim from head of accounting for a couple years now, because we told him three years ago when he was hired that he was going to get fired and now we're super not happy with the job he's done, so he's still going to get fired.

There's a lot of things that government does badly, but the GOP, especially since the Tea Party midterms, has taken "starve the beast" to mean "wilfully, almost gleefully assist the country's nosedive into the ground to benefit their party politically".

Kinda wishing we just split most things up into state rights so I can move to a state far away from you malignant fucksticks. Wait, that won't help with the silly debt ceiling mcguffin, will it?

I thought Obama was to blame for our Debt.

Nevermind, it's hilarious.

over the past 32 years, there have been exactly 4 years when the Democrats have been in control of both the White House and Congress.

Republicans do not care about deficits. they care about keeping taxes low on rich people. full stop.

What's your point?

And in the 50 years prior to those 32 years, Republicans controlled the White House and both Houses for only two years. Out of fifty.

my point is the deficit, and the amazingly clear view INDY gives us into the mindset of the GOP base.

Republicans don't care about the deficit. they only care about keeping taxes low on rich people.

The Deficit equals the difference between spending and revenue in budget.

The Debt is the sum of everything the U.S. owes.

It's important to understand and explain the difference.
This is why I think the cartoon is stupid (well, one of the reasons).
