Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

How about the fact the the home ownership rate was low because Bush's buddies threw millions out of their homes when they couldn't find jobs... seriously, economic recovery was better under W? That's when he and his pals took the entire world economy down. And Gahdaffi was a mistake? What about the longest running war ever that Obama inherited from Cheney and the gang? And that other little war that was actually justified... in Afghanistan... and who took out Georde Sr's buddy, Bin Laden? with actual police work instead of invading two more countries that were not connected... your hatred of Obama is irrational, based on the facts...

I notice you couldn't defend Obummer with any facts. All you know how to do is hide behind a dozen fake names and insult people,
. Big whoop.

Hello Ms. McSally. You were given Gabby's job. Show us the same courage.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

That's according to the U.S. Dept. of the Treasury, but what do they know? Whether or not it was more than all U.S. presidents combined is a moot point. He did what he did. At least you had the cojones to challenge me,

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

He didnt add more to the debt than all the past presidents combined if you adjust the debt increases by every president for inflation. You cant logically compare spending in the single thousands of dollars spent 200 years ago to today.

Re: “What To Do If ICE Comes To Your Door

I think this information is helpful, but "Fight Back" and a fist is a really bad choice of language and iconography to use when you're creating a flyer for someone who is almost certainly not English as a first language, and likely nor familiar with US history and the use of such icons.

It should show something suggesting litigation or justice, perhaps simply the scales of justice of even the statue of liberty. Put differently, it should focus on taking this situation to court, and getting representation.

That's all we need is someone who is stressed and misinterprets this to mean literally fight. That will not help them in any way and could even result in an incident that makes this situation worse for everyone.

Simple question. What's wrong with entering the country legally?

Why does the radical left support breaking our laws? Because they are closet societal misfits. And they have infiltrated education.

FIGHT BACK!

Seriously? How is United We Dream going to explain it to the family, friends, media and anyone else when what they think is a simple statement is misconstrued by someone who follows the" instructions" on their flier and someone is injured or worse.

In the current politically-charged climate it is difficult at best to maintain civility and public order, and now someone is giving questionable advice of a confrontational nature to people who may or may not already have issues with law enforcement.

I understand the intent, but I this is a very bad idea.

Did I mention how he added 9.3 trillion to the national debt? More than all other presidents combined.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

1 of 6 men are either unemployed or in jail.
When he drew a line in the sand in Syria, Basher Al Assad gassed his people anyway and Obummer did nothing.
He overthrew Quaddafi, leaving a hotbed for ISIS.
He called ISIS the J.V. team. They proved to be a little tougher than that.
Obummer care, I won't even go there.
Yep, Obummer was a great president. And remember for 2 years he had a bullet proof majority, so don't blame the Republicans.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

Teacher 55. Here goes.
Under Obummer we had the lowest labor participation rate since the 70's. 95 million out of the labor force.
Economic recovery worst since the 40's.
Lowest home ownership rate since 51 years.
11 million people now on food stamps.
43 families now live in poverty. To be continued.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

Per the first comment in this thread, McSally flew an A-10 over a decimated Iraq, with bombs and rockets enforcing sanctions that most observers believe ended up hurting the Iraqi people far more than Saddam and his regime. She then took part in the attack on Afghanistan "Operation Enduring Freedom" -- the military is so good at cooking up patriotic slogans -- that energized the Taliban and pretty much returned that nation to today's barbarity, conflict, corruption, and poverty. I know, it was her job.

Whatever heroism you can find in that, good on you.

I was more interested in her position on development in our region that remains dependent on a small state university, an airbase hosting obsolete bombers, a missile-maker, and slight tourism. Our region's greatest coup was getting located in Tucson a local HQ for a company that serves the Canadian mining firms laying waste the surrounding hinterlands (in fact, Sahuarita and Green Valley are probably goners).

When the Maricopa Mafia's right-wing Goldwater institute was invited into our "home" by the nutty Supervisor Miller, legally creating problems (for now) the World View project and Tucson's potential breakthrough as a "spaceport," McSally uttered nary a word. That would have taken courage, too.

Perhaps one day our region will have another real _Representative_ besides Raul.

Marsh. Peabrain thinks I'm you. As usual he's wrong. After all these years why would I all of a sudden change my name. Besides I can prove I'm not Marsh.. He went after AZ/DC who I buried the hachet with months ago. Peabrain. It really does fit.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

We live in Representative McSally's district. I hope she keeps having town hall meetings not because they are easy but because, if she wants to "represent" us in Washington, DC, they should be considered essential these days. I also was immediately amazed that she would use the word "ambush," given what happened to the former district Rep., Gabrielle Giffords.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

What are the failures of Obama? There is no measure that indicates that he was a failure. The unemployment rate went down (as it has always been measured), for the first time in decades there was some growth in pay, and almost every national crime statistic trended down over his two terms.
The states that were not showing progress were those governed by Republicans. Illegal immigration has fallen substantially. He would have been even more successful if he had not had an obstructionist Congress for six years.
