    The boehner in a very short cut from last month interview on CBS said something about Obama having raised the deficit by 5 trillion in the past four years. Not a peep, nor was it pointed out by Scott Pelley, that the quick rise in the deficit was adding the previous 6and7 years of war costs, that's ALL related costs, back onto the books, that the now teabags cheered on, that they kept off of as well as the rest of the rubber stamping before and after 9/11!!

    How we got to the extreme deficits that started with the rubber stamping Before 9/11, how we so easily, everyone and especially journalists, we so quickly forget, billions here billions there all through the bush years especially the first six and still none paid for!

    But the jindal breaths a sigh of relief, more photo ops like with the recovery {stimulus} funding he got:
    March 1, 2013 - FEMA Awards $3.7 Million to Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry for Hurricane Isaac Recovery
    March 1, 2013 - FEMA Awards $3 Million to Louisiana Department of Transportation for Hurricane Isaac Recovery

      President for not coming out and stating, over and over again to the American people and using his bully pulpit, that that's what the trillions of dollars come from--- from putting Bush's wars back on the books, as they were never put on the books during Bush's terms.  I lament that POTUS, who is such a good explainer when he wants to be, seems content to just let the Republicans say crap, and not correct it.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

        than trying to correct the media.  IF he had enough time to spend trying to do that, nothing else in government would ever get done! the presidency isn't meant to be a quality control job over the media.

        there are so many problems we are facing right now that it is like living with a hoarder - where to begin - what to do first - in the meantime, just maneuvering means trying to find a goat path to get out of the mess, even for a moment, just to be able to breathe again!
