A Republican walks into a store. Curious about a shiny object behind the counter, she asks,“What is that?” The helpful store clerk responds,“Why, it’s a thermos.” Still curious, the Republican asks,“What does it do?”“It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold,” replies the clerk. So she buys one….The next day, she brings her new thermos to work with her. Her boss, also a blonde rebublican, asks,“What’s that shiny thingy?” She replies with authority,“It’s a thermos.”“Oh,” says she,“And what’s it do?”“Well,” says she,“It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold.”Then she asks,“So what do you have in there today?”“Two cups of coffee and a Popsicle

2007....
Old-line Republican warns 'something's in the works' to trigger a police state
Thom Hartmann began his program on Thursday by reading from a new Executive Order which allows the government to seize the assets of anyone who interferes with its Iraq policies.
He then introduced old-line conservative Paul Craig Roberts -- a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan who has recently become known for his strong opposition to the Bush administration and the Iraq War -- by quoting the "strong words" which open Roberts' latest column: "Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran."
"I don't actually think they're very strong," said Roberts of his words. "I get a lot of flak that they're understated and the situation is worse than I say.... When Bush exercises this authority [under the new Executive Order]... there's no check to it. It doesn't have to be ratified by Congress. The people who bear the brunt of these dictatorial police state actions have no recourse to the judiciary. So it really is a form of total, absolute, one-man rule.... The American people don't really understand the danger that they face."

Some Americans are kind of stupid at times. Those times, and the some, being determined by who's in the WH. Or so it seems
2007. Hmmmmmm.....
Isn't that the same year the Democrats took full control of the purse strings of the US government? Isn't that the same year the Democrats were given a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit before they exploded it by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT to 2.4 trillion dollars? Isn't that the same year the Democrats were given a 5 trillion dollar debt before they more than tripled it to 16 trillion dollars?
Isn't that the same year the Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial system that, after 2 years of oversight by the Democrats, collapsed our economy?
Isn't that the same year the Democrats began spewing a system of lies about the economy that they continue to spew to this very day?
... and you expect anyone with any sense to give the Democrats any credibility when you make ludicrous accusations like this....
And so it goes

Ed Gillespie, adviser to the Romney campaign, defended the campaign's assertion that six independent studies have validated the plausibility of Mitt Romney's tax plan, a talking point used by both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to defend the plan against attacks that the math doesn't ad up. "Six different studies have said this is entirely doable," Gillespie said on "Fox News Sunday."
But host Chris Wallace took issue with the assertion, calling some of the studies "questionable."
"These are very credible sources," Gillespie pushed back.
"One of these is from a guy -- is a blog from a guy who was a top adviser to George W. Bush," Wallace countered. "These are hardly non-partisan studies."

You must have missed the part when Lamb, woman in charge of security, denied that refusal of security for Libya was due to budgetary concerns.
*sigh* the uninformed.
Stop playing politics this was a major failure that resulted in the death of an ambassador despite repeated request to maintain at minimum the current security that was there in August. The St Dept removed them.
Keep it up slug, I really enjoy watching you and your fellow slugs make fools of yourselves regarding the attack of the US consulate and nearby CIA base.

The Brits closed their Benghazi mission in June after the ambassadors motorcade was attacked leaving their weapons and vehicles at the US consulate. The weapons are currently described as missing and/or unaccounted for. In other words the Brits knew that Benghazi was extremely dangerous and hauled azz leaving the US as the last Western diplomatic mission in Eastern Libya.

Why was the US ambassador inside the consulate building alone and unguarded? Was the consulate the "main" target or was the annex housing CIA agents and operatives the main target.

How is the State Department responsible for providing security for the CIA___is the CIA incapable of requesting additional security? It is after all providing the intel.

There's another way to look at it. This administration isn't really concerned with the American public, as a whole, their target is the liberal press - "They'll believe anything."

White House makes the embassy in Paris, Oslo, Berlin, Geneva, Tokyo, Sydney, etc., etc., etc. fortresses, and leaves the embassy in a war zone surrounded by Al Qaeda defenseless.
That's the real story.

we did not have Marines in Libya because Hussein Obama did not want to offend his Muslim brothers.....

You can also call Obama "boy" if you're addressing him in the role of a constitutional lawyer. He's never even seen the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer.
... and somehow he gets placed on the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School. Probably the same way he got a degree from Columbia without ever attending classes.

a boy is a male who has not yet matured into a man.

Obama is most certainly not the man the white house needs, therefore he is our boy in the white house.

Vote Republican:
The Republican Congress has refused to eliminate the $8 billion subsidy for the 13 billion gallons of corn ethanol mandated by the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act introduced by the GOPers. Producing this ethanol uses 5 billion corn bushels, 40 percent of our total crop. That takes more than 30 million prime crop acres for about 7 percent of our gasoline supply.
A162 gallons of water are required to produce a gallon of ethanol from corn. Drier states with more irrigation use even more water, with Kansas and Nebraska requiring 500 water gallons per ethanol gallon. Much of that water is drawn from the Ogallala Aquifer.
The nation's high corn prices are devastating America's Trillion dollar dairy industry to the point where farmers can't afford to feed their cows - and their professional trade organization has been regularly referring despondent dairymen to suicide hotlines.
Experts in the industry estimate that by year's end California, the largest dairy state in the nation, will have lost more than 100 dairies to bankruptcies, foreclosures and sales. Milk cows are being slaughtered at the fastest rate in more than 25 years because farmers need to save on corn costs.
Vote Democrat:
17 Million children can no longer be denied car for their pre-existing condition!
For crissake,...yer gonna used the ol' Leftist "Do it for the children" BS again? That's older than the Race Card baiting with King Obama.

The Corn Ethanol issue stunk from the first day it began but was jointly initiated by both parties in Congress. Ethanol production with subsidies screwed up markets then and still does now. From food industry to dairy to meat to sweeteners to gasoline usage, Ethanol is a monster on our back now. It is so deep into our economy now that removal at this moment would be like removing the pilot's Heroin stash while we're all in flight.

The recent drought has decimated corn production and added greatly to a growing crisis in many industries as you alluded to. Removing all help for Corn Ethanol production at this moment with a failed Obama Economy would be foolish because of all the job and business losses it would incur.

Vote Republican: We have a good chance of climbing out from the Socialist Hole and become Energy Independent.

Substantiate your assertions.
