The following is an e-mail I received which I want to share

This is just a History lesson.  I am sending it to all regardless of party. It is history and nothing can change it.
The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.  The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this: January 3rd, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
·        The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 ·        The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% ·        The Unemployment rate was 4.6% ·        George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION! Remember that day…January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?  BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
THANK YOU DEMOCRATS (especially Barney ) for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% unemployment..to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
(BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy). Barney blocked it and called it a “Chicken Little Philosophy” (and the sky did fall!) ·        And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA ·        And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? ·        OBAMA and the Democrat Congress, especially BARNEY!!!! So when someone tries to blame Bush…
REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”
Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving the economy into the ditch.
Budgets do not come from the White House.. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budget.
And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. Let’s remember what the deficits looked like during that period:
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.  In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is “I inherited a deficit that I voted for, and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.”
There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! “The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

A silver Miniature Poodle stacked.

The Republicans seem to baffle the Media with their reluctance to hand over the primary to Mitt Romney.

The pundits both Democrat and Republican have made all sorts of suggestions as to why this is to their minds untenable. After all Romney is the only responsible choice in the minds of the mainstream media and their moguls. However, to my mind to choose Romney to combat Obama would be the same as sending a miniature poodle to attack a pack of jackals. Now with Gingrich you are looking at putting a bulldog in a pen of peacocks. The choice is obvious to me – give us the bulldog.

English: A comparison of Democratic and Republ...

President Obama may be cunning, loquacious, Harvard Graduate and an amazing community organizer, is he also intelligent? As far as I am concerned the jury is still out on that one. Actually, there are many ways of judging intelligence; it seems to me those considered brilliant by journalists wallowing around the fetid swamps Inside the Beltway couldn’t find their butt in the dark with a flashlight.

A President of the United States doesn’t need to be a self anointed intellectual elite to lead this Nation well. He does need to know who to look to for advice, and be smart enough not to call in a Brain Surgeon when what he needs is a plumber or a Rocket Scientist when he needs an electrician or a Professor when he needs an accountant. President Obama like most Progressive elites thinks all this Nation’s problems can be solved by Lawyers, Word Merchants and Social Workers. That isn’t smart, that’s dumb, and unfortunately for President Obama most Americans realize that isn’t smart.

He might think it brave, and visionary to drive this country over a cliff financially in order to bring forth his version of Utopia, but your average tea party participant doesn’t want to go along on that ride nor do most Republicans and Sarah Palin by contrast to President Obama is looking better and better every day.

If the Progressives in this Country continue to try to shove their agenda down the throats of the average American citizen we very well may have another civil war and I don’t think it’s foreordained that the Union will win. What could kick it off would be for California to demand the rest of the country including Texas to bail them out. California is the Socialist Utopian Dream and the best and the brightest are pulling up stakes and heading for anywhere but there as fast as they can pack.

Left to his own devices it is becoming more and more apparent that Obama would like the entire country to be just like California, is there no one among the dope soaked so-called intellectual elite of this Nation smart enough to realize there is poison in that Utopian Kool Aid? Everyone is so upset with the current impasse in Washington between Democrats and Republicans and most of the media seems bent on blaming it all on the Republicans. Hey, bi-partisanship is a two-way street, after eight years of Bush Bashing there is a lot of fence mending that needs to be done before any one on the right will believe there isn’t a hidden dagger up every Democrats sleeve, including President Obama’s and most Republicans tend to favor a cautious approach when it comes to accepting the siren call of that charlatan.
