    Pretty sad when "wins" come at the expense of what is good for the American people

    For an entire year, no.

    But neither has Trump ( in fairness,for obvious reason).

    Maybe trump should get a year under his belt before he crows.

    Obama went to New Orleans, and he wasn’t even president
    [​IMG]

    Hurricane Katrina made landfall on August 29, 2005 as a Category 3 hurricane. At the time, George W. Bush was President of the United States, not Mr. Obama.

    Mr. Obama had only recently begun his career as junior U.S. Senator for the state of Illinois on January 3, 2005, just months before Katrina struck. Obama would serve in the Senate until 2008, when was elected the 44th president.

    Photojournalist Richard Carson was with the delegation of former presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush on September 5, 2005 as they visited evacuees in the Astrodome in Houston, Texas:

Former U.S. presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton established a new fund on Monday to assist the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by Hurricane Katrina’s destructive impact on the U.S. Gulf Coast. REUTERS/Richard Carson

    George W. Bush was roundly criticized for for his handling of the disaster recovery efforts. Bush wrote in his 2010 memoir “Decision Points” that the poor response to Katrina, along with the Iraq war, made 2005 “a damaging period in my presidency.”

    the security detail for a 1st term senator and the president are completely different
    that said look where Barry was when he was president

    regardless, you know Trump is doing a great job in Texas because the only thing the MSM has to complain about is Melania's shoes

    My local congressman came out yesterday about the Harvey Relief Bill being tied to a debt ceiling incease

    of course savaged by the local fishwrap

    What I find amazing is all the congress people going on and on about how if they cant spend more money the nation will default (which is crap) seem to have no problem heaping more and more debt on our child who will end up defaulting

    US Constitution, 14th Amendment, Section 4:

    The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

    If only one dollar comes in, it goes to debt payment, ahead of all spending. Money comes in every week thru payroll taxes. It's impossible to default unless we break the law.

    On here, yes. But Trump brought it up at his rally in MO.

    While he was "technically" correct, he was comparing his quarterly results to Obama's yearly results.

    An apples/apples comparison would have been more accurate.

    For example, he could have said he achieved a quarterly 3% rise, and that Obama only did that eight times.

    Or, he could have said I'll check back in after a full year, and let you know how I do compared to Obama.

    For what it's worth, he doing much better lately, now that his handlers cut his Twitter use.

    3% is not the ceiling,it is just the floor.Long way to go.Last administration set a low bar to hide American exceptionalism.No chance in this administration doing that.

    Our current group of politicians are guaranteeing that our children's generation will default, and more than likely we will see the default ourselves. The spending that we are currently witnessing is not sustainable, but Congress couldn't care any less.

    If Congress or Trump had any financial responsibility at all, they'd cut the funding for terrorist counties and those who simply hate our guts, then we'd have more than enough money to cover these catastrophes.
    But nowadays, other than the Military that protects or country, nothing EVER gets cut or even scaled back......it's just spend, spend, spend, then raise the debt ceiling some more.
