"They blew a $5 trillion surplus," Kasich said of Republicans in Washington during the Bush administration. The projected annual surpluses, he said, were "quickly spent, unfortunately by Republicans."
Two recessions, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Bush-era tax cuts are largely to blame. The annual growth of the federal debt largely declined during Clinton's years in office, increased during Bush's term, and has been steadily falling during Obama's White House years.
As you can see, the men are holding up a poster that reads "FUC_ YOU, MICHAEL MOORE" with crosshairs replacing the Os, and the "K" strangely missing from the first word (Why bother censoring yourself when you're already going all-out?). She also autographed the poster. But, wait, Sarah Palin doesn't like Michael Moore? Stop the presses!!!In a political culture where every public and private decision becomes fair game as campaign fodder, it's probably not the brightest decision to so openly endorse a poster like that. (Not that the famously "rogue" Palin really cares, seeing as her personal life has been heavily scrutinized for political purposes since summer 2008.) But having been put through the ringer by the media for her infamous "crosshairs" image after the 2011 Gabrielle Giffords shooting (however unjustified), you'd think she'd be more cautious.
Mitt Romney, the two time loser who is once again exploring the options of running for president, has committed the rarely seen triple flip flop. We have now seen the third time that Romney has changed his mind
on global warming. Now he is saying man has created it
Back in 2011 Romney made waves by saying that global warming exists and that man contributes to the problem. Then, during his second losing campaign for president, he flip flopped and changed his mind saying that he thinks it exists, but "we don't know" what is causing it. Now he has executed the rarely seen triple flip flop by today saying that global warming exists and man is causing it.
Meet the newest menace in the war on drugs: the meth drone. Underground drug-smuggling tunnels are so 2014. The AP reports that a drone filled with six pounds of meth was found in a Mexico City grocery-store parking lot on Wednesday. The remote-controlled propeller aircraft had collapsed under the weight of its illegal cargo, sending it crashing down suspiciously close to the California border.
In the fall of 2007, as Mike Huckabee was surging in the Iowa polls, Mitt Romney's foundering presidential campaign dispatched a camera crew to Arkansas with the charge to produce one of the most brutal ads of the election cycle. The final product -- a withering spot that tied Huckabee to a 2003 murder committed by a serial rapist who was paroled while he was governor of Arkansas -- never saw the light of day. But the unaired ad, obtained this week by BuzzFeed News, highlights a potentially potent line of attack on Huckabee as he considers a 2016 bid for the presidency. The ad features an interview with the mother of the murder victim, condemning Huckabee's judgment and ruling him unfit to be president.
