Finally a toy that makes sense.  Here is the latest offering for the 2010 Christmas Season.  Now maybe you'll be able to follow all the absurd statements president Barack Hussein Obama makes during his teleprompted speeches.  To follow up on that I'm going to reprint one of the best short articles I've read recently explaining things the Democrats in Washington, D.C. can't seem to wrap their short sighted little minds around.  This is more for their benefit than yours.  I'm sure you've already figured this out.  The next time you hear BHO, lying Joe Biden, or any other party hack blame the Bush administration for the current financial situation, you just direct them to Pappy's Place for the correct explanation.

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. 

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period:    (below)
