You don't understand what I am saying. The GWB $3.XT budget, for which there is $N amount of deficit spending built in runs from October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009. That is finite. It encompasses all that is BUDGET but not other things.

Now, TARP, which was September 2008 was a LAW, passed by Congress and is not part of the Budget. Neither is the Stimulus Package which was passes in February 2009 which is now known as Pub.L. 111-5. For Bush, it means that he DOESN'T get that burden attached to his budget, much like Obama doesn't get TARP attached to his Administration even though part is being spend on it.

That is why I say it is just semantics. It is the juxtaposition of time and transition.

Quite true. I'm sure there is a place for everyone on the web.

Honey, I just bought myself this:

Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG : News & Reports

Don't worry, though, it was "off budget," so it doesn't count.

You need to learn that it's only acceptable to post photo chop pics of Bush that look like that.

I tried that once with a ZR1 Corvette. It didn't work.

Bash Bush makes you funny

Bash Obama makes you a waste of evolution given genetics, and definately racist regardless of if it was joking or not.


I'm not even a republican. I'm an independent, but you liberals should lighten up a tad (especially on the government spending).
Oh, my heart goes out to you, you poor, misunderstood ass fuck.

I went to high school with an 85% black population, and the truth is. White people take those kind of remarks a lot more serious than the blacks do.
If you guys really are as liberal as half of you sound, than you more than likely believe in evolution too. Therefore it shouldn't even be offensive, but merely more evidence of your evolution theory.

Yea they're mighty sensitive around for free speech and all except when they don't like what you're saying.
