(NY Times) Despite Obama’s rosy economic perception and claims that the economy is in much better shape than the public appreciates, together with his delusional claims of falling budget deficits (by roughly three quarters) since he took office — numbers just don’t lie unlike someone else that I won’t mention.
U.S. Debt Clock Today In March 2009 according to Politico the Federal Budget Deficit Hit $10.9 Trillion
During Obama’s Watch the Federal Budget Deficit has Nearly Doubled
Flashback: Remember When Obama Claimed George Bush Was Irresponsible and Unpatriotic for Adding $4 Trillion to the Federal Budget Deficit?
What Does This Make Obama???
I have called you friends because I have made known to you
everything that I have heard from My Father. –John 15:15
Jesus speaking to His disciples said: “This is My Commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.” –John 15:12-14
In January Sen Ted Cruz claimed: “I don’t really know Speaker Boehner” (R-OH) on Bloomberg Television — This week, Ted Cruz said of the former House Speaker Boehner “I don’t know the man” on Fox News with Megyn Kelly but was in-fact his former lawyer.
According to Business Insider in 1998 before Boehner became Speaker of the House of Representatives and Cruz was elected to the Senate, Boehner had commenced litigation against Rep Jim McDermott (D-WA) for allegedly breaking wiretapping laws.
The lawsuit stemmed from a Florida couple recording a call between Boehner and then House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) they had heard over a police scanner. The couple sent the audio recording to McDermott, who later allegedly released it to the NY Times and other publications. The call centered around alleged ethical violations Gingrich faced at the time and McDermott was the top Democrat on the House Ethics Committee.
Furious, Boehner called this an invasion of privacy and hired Ted Cruz, who had recently before served as a Law Clerk for then Justice William Rehnquist — Cruz made an early appearance before the news media defending his client John Boehner after he had sent out a fundraising appeal to help defray his legal expenses.
“The fundraising letter is much ado about nothing,” Cruz told the Seattle Times – “Congressman McDermott consistently attempted to delay the litigation and drive up expense. It is reasonably expected that Congressman Boehner will use the means at his disposal to raise funds to pursue the lawsuit.”
Later when Jay Leno asked Boehner what he thought of Cruz, he referred to him as a “good guy” adding, “I don’t always agree with him but he’s a good guy.”

Jesus said to His disciples: “As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you, abide in My love. If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and abide in His love. I have said these things to you so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” –John 15:9-11
