NASA said you were full of sh*t.
You are calling the MET office liars. The folks who started the Global Warming issue, not me, are the ones who are showing the data.

Your data is outdated and you would have known this if you read the article-

"This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased."

What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like [chief Bush political adviser] Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income, to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression".
Obama 2002.
Ok, dufus, let's put this in the real world.
It's after 9/11. You're the president.
What do you do?
Do you do the Clinton response to Al Qaeda bombing us and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?
Or, do you surrender to the Islamist jihad?
Or, do you go after them and make them fight you in their own back yard?

If you go fight them in their own back yard, where do you fight them?
Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviet Union?... and leave Saddam Hussein with a rebuilt war machine in your rear?
If you do, why in the hell would you expect any different result than when the Soviets did the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy?
And what do you do about Saddam when you move everything there keeping him under control to Afghanistan, and he hasn't changed his ambition from when he tried to take control of all the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula?
Now, you're land-locked in Afghanistan and Saddam controls the entire Middle East.

You, and Obama, are ignorant fools.

Bush did it differently than the Soviets. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
Mission Accomplished.

... get over it.

The Obama Breaking Point
October 14, 2012 - 10:34 pm - by Victor Davis Hanson

Calling Dr. Freud

I think a growing number of Americans slowly grasped that with Obama, the best guide to his character is what is sometimes known as psychological projection — or the syndrome in which those unsure of themselves seek to massage their own natural but bothersome impulses by ascribing them to others, almost always in a negative context. The vicarious president who gave us “get in their faces,”“bring a gun to a knife fight,” and “punish our enemies”; ridiculed the Special Olympics; slurred millions of doctors with accusations that they like to amputate for profit; and smeared, as fat cats, the one-percent, corporate jet owners, and Vegas jet-setters (his own generous Wall Street donors) of course also preached about the need for a new bipartisanship and civility. Like a moth to a light bulb, Obama was drawn to swanky golf resorts, Vegas, and vacations on Martha’s Vineyard of the sort he dismissed as the haunts of the one percent. When the president struggles to repress yet another appetite, we can be assured that he will attribute such a character flaw to others.

The Presidents running for re-election, run on their records. Not President Obama . Why not? Instead, team Obama has mounted a relentlessly negative campaign. Forget “Hope and Change.” This time around it’s “Fear and Smear.”

U.S. has a +$16.2 trillion deficit and Obama has about a $6 trillion deficit and increasing an average of $3.85 billion debt per day. President Obama promise to cut annual federal budget deficits in half by the end of his term. The unemployment is above 8 % for 44 months, despite the nearly $6 trillion dollar in new Obama's debt.

U.S. has record high foreclosures, record high loss of median family income and twenty three million Americans are not able to find jobs or are underemployed. A record 5.4 million workers and their dependents that have signed up to collect federal disability since President Obama took office.
President Obama supports the institutional redistribution of wealth in the USA. President Obama's taxing of the rich plan won't solve the deficit. President Obama could confiscate the entire wealth of America's top 400 wealthiest people ($1.7 trillion dollars) and it wouldn't put much of a dent in our +$16.2 trillion deficit.

President Obama's proposed solution to reducing the deficit, "tax the rich" plan will only fund the government for about 8 days.
U.S. lost its perfect AAA credit rating and the U.S slips to number 7 in global competitiveness for business environment under Obama. The U.S Nation's National Security facing traumatic repercussions from Obama's policies. The U.S Southern border is a sieve, open as a gateway to the most violent criminals.

During his first two years President Obama had a Democratic-controlled House and Senate to pass any plan or idea to help the economy. Instead, he made his overriding priority not job creation but the radical transformation of this country’s health care system.

The government takeover of health care, if left in place, will deprive millions of Americans of their present health insurance and degrade the quality of care provided for all of us. President Obama's preferred model is socialized medicine is along the lines of socialist countries.

President Obama seems fundamentally out of touch with most mainstream Americans and sees main street America as something to be scolded. President Obama routinely villanizes the private sector and pushes policies that punish hard working Americans. As he chided successful Americans this summer,“You didn’t build that!”.

President Obama's administration's ludicrous assertion that an obscure YouTube video in California sparked anti-American riots across the Middle East on Sept. 11 has now been proven a deliberate falsehood. And when a U.S. ambassador was murdered in the line of duty for the first time in 33 years, President Obama’s response was to jet to Las Vegas to party at a fat-cat fundraiser. The cruel murders of the ambassador and three other Americans that day? Just a couple of “bumps in the road,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama promised to "unify a divided nation", has never happened. Obama has been nothing like the healer-in-chief he promised to be in 2008 election. Early on he took the low road, inflaming resentments, demonizing his critics, and, yes, pitting red Americans against blue Americans. President Obama's defenders argue that he had no choice, going negative was his only option.

President Obama was going to unite the country, but all he has done is divide and pit one group against another. He pits the rich against the poor, blacks against whites, old against young, workers against management, unions against companies, and home owners against bank.

Mitt Romney’s plan for a stronger Middle Class is a five-part proposal for turning around the economy, delivering more jobs, and more take-home pay for American families.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan vision represents concepts of liberty, freedom, self-reliance, and responsibility. Clear choice for Americans in 2012 election: Liberty vs dependence, opportunity vs entitlement. Mitt Romney's strength derives from his solid experience in understanding economy, free enterprise and having the vision to help businesses succeed and create jobs.

Mitt Romney will rebuild the foundations of the American economy on the principles of free enterprise, hard work, and innovation.
Mitt Romney's plan:
1. Energy independence
2. Improve education/School choice
3. Make trade work for America
4. Cut the deficit / Balance the budget
5. Champion small businesses and reduce regulations

By most measures, Obama has failed the American people. It's time for real leadership and change in the White House.

This may interest you,or not!

The "War of the Dogs" aka the Malayan Emergency 1948-60,was caused
by the failure of "Macarthur" to follow through on a solemn promise to the indigenous People that when the W11 ended they will
be granted an Independence status,as a reward for supporting the
Allies in the Asian Pacific struggles..

This failure caused seething discontent,and the Communists of closeby China took full advantage of it.The UK,Largely unknown
and ignored by most fought 12 years of bitter jungle warfare
finally becoming the first successful Counter Insurgency victors
until today!!

This was in fact the real begining of the Vietnam Conflict,which
was not regarded as a successful mission.The strategic operations
such as the destruction of Hamlets,and relocation of the Populace
into Forts,was copied by the US forces in Vietnam,Officers of the
Uk Forces offered their services to the US,but were informed it was
not required?

After two years of fierce battles in the Tropical Jungles,which
had spread to Borneo,etc,The Malaysian Scouts informed the UK Intel units,that the captured prisoners did not speak,Malay,or
any of the local dialects,but simply spoke Chinese? The weapons
captured for a long time had proved to be Communist Chinese and
it was accepted by the UK,that the Guerrilla forces were being
supplied by the Chinese..But now the small Uk forces were up
against the Massive in number Chinese troops? They requested the
help of Australia,New Zealand,who reluctantly agreed to help the
Uk,who were desperately struggling to recover from the ravages
of WW11!! The conditions were Horrendous,Tropical warfare is of
the utmost difficult conditions to conduct a Military Operation
of any kind.This has been a very sensitive issue largely buried
in the Archives of armed comflicts,for whatever fact
the only reason that I am aware of it,is a person who served in
the conflict told me about it..These words are mine,I looked it
up a long time ago,and drew upon the conversatons I had to place
the data before you today...None mention this as the ongoing
start of the Vietnam Struggle!

Look, you stupid f*ck. Clinton was for NAFTA.

But to blame NAFTA on Clinton is a lie.

NAFTA was negotiated & signed by George HW Bush.

NAFTA was not ratified because of Democrats.

A bill enacting the items in NAFTA passed Congress with a majority of Republicans voting for & a Majority of Democrats voting against.

NAFTA was a Republican idea, negotiated by Republicans, Passed Congress due to Republicans & the legislation signed by Clinton.

To Blame Clinton for Graham, Bailey & Leach is just as stupid.

If not for Republicans, it would have never made it to Clinton's desk.

Print this out & paste it on your forehead so next time you won't appear to be such an idiot.
