Not that I criticize Obama for protecting our embassies and ambassadors in dangerous countries.
Oh, wait a minute. Nevermind. Too late for one embassy and one ambassador.
But aren't we glad Jay Leno got an exclusive interview to ask our president the really tough questions in these dangerous times?
I know I am even though my head almost exploded. He even got in a few yucks.
Thought it odd though the audience were trained seals. They did everything but bark on cue.
Obama is abandoning the embassies, not protecting them.

... oh wait! He didn't! And at least 4 times no less!
I know, as successful as Clinton was with keeping an attack from happening, again and again. You'd think Bush would have learned from him.

Oh wait, you're talking terrorism. I thought you meant about the women he chased around the desk.

Where was LBJ from? Gee whiz. Lets me think.

Could it be a Southern State. Do ya think.

If you had a brain, you would know that nearly every single vote against the Civil Right's Act came from the Southern States. Nearly all votes outside that block were for the Civil Right's act.

You right whiners have this idea that you need to paint the Democrats as racist and that will somehow hide the racism inbred into today's Republican Party.

I was at a party in Malmo three years ago. At the climactic moment what I would guess was three hundred blonde women blew up balloons simultaneously until each balloon exploded. Even though I am a Viking through and through I have no idea what they were doing or what the event signified, but I know this: when those balloons exploded, so did I.

Wrong again moron! Community colleges provide technical skills needed in today's workplace. Increasingly local industries are partnering with local community colleges providing students hands on training. Here's one example;
Jackie Bray is a single mom from North Carolina who was laid off from her job as a mechanic. Then Siemens opened a gas turbine factory in Charlotte, and formed a partnership with Central Piedmont Community College. The company helped the college design courses in laser and robotics training. It paid Jackie’s tuition, then hired her to help operate their plant.
No liar, there's absolutely no evidence that raising the minimum wage has ever raised unemployment.
You're an idiot Galt!
The specific program that you referenced sounds potentially useful, but is a trades school program, not a "college" program.

Call the school Central Piedmont Trade School.

The fact is that non-college-oriented students should receive this type of training in high school, the common practice in Europe.

What you MEAN I suppose is that you're going for lunch and expect someone else to pick up the check. Hmmmmm... that Florida sun is hard on the leathery skin isn't it, dear?

CNN deserves to be punished for reporting the facts and straying from the Obama script.
There were no facts in that piece just the sort of bullsht that appears on this thread courtesy of mutts and trolls who possess a "cartoonish" view of reality.

Your choice.

Most people prefer to hear both sides of a story and decide for themselves.

Homer apparently prefers not to think.

You know. The video. The one Susan Rice was sent out to five different Sunday shows to blame the attack on.
The one that got the person who made that virtually unknown video until the WH brought attention to it arrested for exercising his right of free speech.
The one Obama kept blaming long after Hillary and Panetta came clean about it being a planned terrorist attack.
You know. The video? Hello? Anyone home?
Where do you get this notion that the video was virtually unknown?

I thought it would be appropriate, in this instance, were the DEBIL to be Hungarian, non? Perhaps she despises you because she suspects the DEBIL'S arse tastes like strawberries? Where would she get such an idea? Well, likely the same place she gets the idea that some ethereal being is coming to take her to "salvation," but that is a mere guess on my part. I was with a woman last night whose arse tasted like strawberries but that was only because I stuffed a pint of them and discharged a can of Redi-Whip up there first.
lol! So fetchie has tasted your nectar!

When 93 to 7 is fair...

"Among these 111 targets, only seven were self-described "progressive" groups. The remaining 104 were right-of-center. So, among this sample, the institutions that the IRS placed under a microscope were 6.3 percent liberal and 93.7 percent conservative. That is not quite fair and balanced..."
