Things to consider

This was in response to a post I found on facebook, and I did search all the claims made here and found that they all appear to be accurate. I would have linked to all of the findings, but short on time today. feel free to check them out yourself.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault,” think about this:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:
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 were responsible for 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH.
Remember the 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!
It started with Jimmy Carter and his Housing and Community Investment Act of 1977, broadened by Bill Clinton, enforced by Janet Reno, then sent over the cliff by Frank & Dodd. Oh, Obama, as an attorney in Chicago working on behalf of ACORN, successfully sued Citibank for loan discrimination under Reno’s tenure!
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!
Bush asked Congress 17 times to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
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.
So when someone tries to blame Bush..
REMEMBER: JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat 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 budgets.
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.
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.

Jackie walorski vs joe donnelly

Jackie Walorski
Joe Donnelly

Primaries are now over, and Jackie Walorski now has to concentrate on defeating Joe Donnelly in November.  This could be an easy task this year, as long as the citizens remember the Health care vote, and How we were let down by the man who was elected to represent us. Still, Donnelly is a popular representative, and I am sure it won’t just be a walk in the park. I will try and outline the race as much as possible in the near future, so everyone can examine both candidates and make an informed decision.

It bothers me that there are still so many out there that just vote for the the party, or don’t take the time to look at all the options and make an informed decision. Let’s be sure this year, that we elect a candidate that properly represents the majority of their constituents. Be informed.

Urgent jack jordan campaign update

Dear Campaign Team,

Respectfully asking for your help in 2 areas:

#1 – The absolute importance of voting this upcoming Tuesday in the Republican Primary…along with urging your family members and friends to vote for Jack Jordan (to ultimately replace Joe Donnelly in the U.S. Congress).

#2 – Please forward this e-mail quickly and broadly to your many e-mail contacts.  (Recipients, please forward to your contacts)

These are very serious times…one man recently told me that he would lose his right to complain if he didn’t vote in the May 4th Primary.   In this Primary, Republicans have a choice between 2 distinctly different candidates to replace Joe Donnelly.  Jackie Walorski has the typical politician’s resume and she would be “more of the same” in Congress.  Or me, Jack Jordan, who has a real life resume.  I have been blessed to have significant experiences in business, leadership, missions, healthcare, education and international opportunities.   With strong voter turn-out, we will win this race!

As you know, we won’t attack our opponent with half-truths or personal attacks…but we aren’t afraid to get the facts out.   Facts which are very important and help underscore the difference between a citizen candidate and a politician.  Following is information from a “Facts” commercial we launched on TV.  You will notice they are 100% accurately sourced.  (A link to access the commercial is at the end of this e-mail)

Citizen Candidate vs. Politician:

How many lobbyists have given money to each candidate?

Has either candidate ever missed a critical committee vote on time change which would have stopped the bill? (A “politician” avoiding a difficult stance?)

Jack Jordan = 0

Jackie Walorski = 1

“Daylight-saving time still alive; Walorski’s absence lets bill move to full House.”

Source: South Bend Tribune, May 1, 2005 by Martin DeAgostino

“Fox News bloviator Bill O’Reilly calls it “the no spin zone.”

That’s where he corrects the selective memory of public figures whose commitment to the truth seems, shall we say, less than total.

Here then, are some “no-spin” correctives generated by the 2005 Indiana General Assembly…..”

“Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Lakeville, announcing that “I voted ‘no’ every single time that (daylight-saving  time) has been brought up.”

No-spin correction: It’s not always how you vote, but when, and Walorski skipped a committee meeting and vote where she had a unique opportunity to bury the bill.

She cited a competing committee schedule, but the Tribune attended both meetings and there was plenty of time between them.”

Joe donnelly at the bremen band fish fry

Joe Donnelly

The Bremen Band fish fry was yesterday, and I was rather suprized when I went to pickup my order, to see that Joe Donnelly was a couple people behind me in line.I can only assume that this is because he realizes that with the current state of the republican campaigns, that he needs to be out and about.

I believe that Joe is in for a tough time  this year. He had done a very good job as representative, and I really had no problems with him until the health care bill. I think he must realize that could be his undoing.

I will do my best to start posting about his campaign after the primaries. I do thing whichever of the top two candidates that are running against him this year wins the primary, will probably win the seat, but only time will tell.

Republican party dirty politics

in doing some searching around on the web, I Came across this article about the 2nd district congressional race here in Indiana.
It’s about the difficulties that jack Jordan is facing when trying to get out to meet his constituents.  I really hope this kind of politics doesn’t continue through the entire election.

I find it interesting to the Republican Party would go to such great lengths to stifle competition.  But then, they are politicians after all.  It just goes to show that career politicians tend to be far too heavy handed, and scared of competition.  Let’s hope that they eventually come to their senses and don’t go to0 negative on this.
