•Elliott Abrams - currently deputy assistant to President Bush and deputy national security advisor for global democracy strategy, Abrams was one of the Reagan administration's most controversial figures as the senior State Department official for Latin America in the mid-1980s. He entered into a plea bargain in federal court after being indicted for providing false testimony about his fund-raising activities on behalf of the Contras, although he later accused the independent counsel's office of forcing him to accept guilt on two counts. President George H. W. Bush later pardoned him.
•David Addington - now Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, and by numerous press accounts a stanch advocate of expanded presidential power, Addington was a congressional staffer during the joint select committee hearings in 1986 who worked closely with Cheney.
•John Bolton - the controversial U.N. ambassador whose recess appointment by President Bush is now in jeopardy was a senior Justice Department official who participated in meetings with Attorney General Edwin Meese on how to handle the burgeoning Iran-Contra political and legal scandal in late November 1986. There is little indication of his precise role at the time.
•Richard Cheney - now the vice president, he played a prominent part as a member of the joint congressional Iran-Contra inquiry of 1986, taking the position that Congress deserved major blame for asserting itself unjustifiably onto presidential turf. He later pointed to the committees' Minority Report as an important statement on the proper roles of the Executive and Legislative branches of government.
Robert M. Gates - President Bush's nominee to succeed Donald Rumsfeld, Gates nearly saw his career go up in flames over charges that he knew more about Iran-Contra while it was underway than he admitted once the scandal broke. He was forced to give up his bid to head the CIA in early 1987 because of suspicions about his role but managed to attain the position when he was re-nominated in 1991.
Oliver L. North - now a radio talk show host and columnist, he was at the center of the Iran-Contra spotlight as the point man for both covert activities. A Marine serving on the NSC staff, he steadfastly maintained that he received high-level approval for everything he did, and that "the diversion was a diversion." He was found guilty on three counts at a criminal trial but had those verdicts overturned on the grounds that his protected congressional testimony might have influenced his trial. He ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate from Virginia in 1996
John Poindexter - who found a niche deep in the U.S. government's post-9/11 security bureaucracy as head of the Pentagon's Total Information Awareness program (formally disbanded by Congress in 2003), was Oliver North's superior during the Iran-Contra period and personally approved or directed many of his activities. His assertion that he never told President Reagan about the diversion of Iranian funds to the Contras ensured Reagan would not face impeachment.

So, were did our intellectual idiot get "278" from?

I could take up some space to explain why this is a ridiculous statement, but it seems pretty self evident.
Our industry was never dead...hell, it wasn't even suffering.
They just slowly got rid of everything through the govt blowing corporations and vica-versa. Made it more profitable for them to relocate.
Rhetorical and reality is what I was doing. I am thinking of assembly-line people. No American, Canadian or European worker, not to mention others, has worked on an electronics assembly line in decades. We bring back that kind of manufacturing here, you tell me who's gonna train new workers as it is false to claim that it is all computerized and robot-driven.

Oh, I was at Fort Sill in the early 1980s and the Marines did not have Ant-battery radar, but the Army did. So the Army sent a ten man team to Beirut and they stayed at the Marine barracks.
Oh, why did just three out of the ten die? Simple. They had three three-man teams and a NCO. Three were in the barracks, three were on duty at the radar, three were out eating and the NCO was out checking on them.
Wrong place, wrong time.

Sorry, the NCO should have been a CW3. See, I can correct myself!

Beirut became the test bed for the AN/ TPQ-36 Firefinder radar; an Army team from Fort Sill was dispatched to Beirut to reinforce the Marine TA and, eventually, the counterfire effort. CWO3 Richard Ortiz, MOS 0803, was the officer-in-charge (OIC) of the team in Beirut. He and his soldiers were killed in the terrorist bombing of the MAU headquarters on 23 October 1983.

And you are wrong about no retaliation too. But you are so blinded by your bigotry, you will never accept the truth about anything.

A VERY Sharp AND intelligent person said this:

OUR Pres had three options, three things he could have come out and 'identified' with:

1) being black,

2) being white (or right, lol),

or

3) the Rule of Law, which IS color blind.

as an attorney, he should have sided with the Law and the facts of the case, etc..
as a Law Professor, he should have sided with the Law, etc...

As an elected representative of over 300 million DIVERSE citizens, and having taken an Oath to the Rule of Law, the Constitution, he should have sided with #3.

I see NO reason, other then his being part of the 1% and the powerful elite, why he would pick #2.

and, now that he has picked option #1,
IMO,

he can no longer claim to be the President of ALL of the United States or a Protector of the Constitution.

a true UNITER would have picked #3...

hell, even a TRUE politician would have picked #3!
but, some of us already KNEW that about THIS failed president...

I wonder if Obama would allow his daughters to date someone like Trayvon or if Trayvon had lived---date him.

No link, no response. And all of these issues have been address and debunked.
I get it, I get it, you hate Ronald Reagan but then claim that Obama is like Reagan. And Obama is also like Lincoln and Washington. I think the opposite!

He said "278". He also claimed that Reagan did not retaliate. Both are gross exaggerations.
Now, show us proof positive that Bush lied about Iraq's WMD! Nothing after the fact! We all know they did not find enough but EVERYONE agreed that Iraq had WMD but in your Libtardian Logic, only Bush lied!
Soooo, show us proof that Bush lied or shut the f-up!!!

Did Obama give the order for the IRS to shake down the TEA Party groups? I don't know. But he really did not have to give an order. All he needed to do is call them anti-Americans and his minions take it from there as they know Obama has their back.
Oh, you don't think so. Can you tell us about the FBI investigation of the IRS's handling of the TEA Party tax exempt filings? Why the Dirrector of the FBI does not know the name of his lead investigator.
Why? Why because there isn't one and never will be.

The Italians and the Poles where upset about being called dumb by other countries so they decided to have a foot ball game and whom ever lost would have to accept the brunt of all the dumb jokes. The games was played in Poland and in the middle of the last quarter the score was zero-zero when a local factory whistle blew. The Italians thought the game was over and marched off the field. Five minutes later the Poles scored and won the game.

Volusia County is the only loony-lefty county north of Palm Beach Co. and their sheriff is a thug. I avoid Daytona Beach.

Officer Suspended Over Trayvon Martin Comments
Posted on July 21, 2013

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla.– A Volusia County beach safety officer was placed on paid administrative leave after making comments on Facebook the night after a verdict was made in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

“Another thug gone,” read one message.“Pull up your pants and act respectful. Bye bye thug r.i.p.”

County spokesman David Byron said Snipes also sent another employee a cartoon showing Trayvon Martin, the teen killed by Zimmerman, in a hoodie, holding a can of iced tea and a red bag of Skittles. The words on the cartoon read,“Those Skittles were to die for.”

County officials have publicly criticized Snipes behavior, calling it “unacceptable” and apologizing to Martin’s family.

Well, if we just started to execute them, there would be no full-up prisons, would there. That is what Muslim counties do.

Oh, when I was in S. Korea in the early 1980s and American GI was murdered by a Korean who was sentenced to life w/o parole and I was talking to a Korean friend and asked him about the prison they were sending him to.
He said no worry, life in that prison is only about 3-5 years. I asked him why and he said, "no heat, bad food, no one live more than five year there"!
Do you really think people live more than a few years in Muslim prisons?
