<quoted text>When did Clinton order the regime change in Iraq? how did you think that was going to happen?
George W. Bush did not invent the idea of deposing the Iraqi tyrant. For years before he came on the scene, removing Saddam Hussein had been a priority embraced by the Democratic administration of Bill Clinton and by Clinton’s most vocal supporters in the Senate:
Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas, or biological weapons.... Other countries possess weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles. With Saddam, there is one big difference: he has used them. Not once, but repeatedly.... I have no doubt today that, left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will use these terrible weapons again.
These were the words of President Clinton on the night of December 16, 1998 as he announced a four-day bombing campaign over Iraq. Only six weeks earlier, Clinton had signed the Iraq Liberation Act authorizing Saddam’s overthrow—an initiative supported unanimously in the Senate and by a margin of 360 to 38 in the House.“Iraqis deserve and desire freedom,” Clinton had declared. On the evening the bombs began to drop, Vice President Al Gore told CNN’s Larry King:
You allow someone like Saddam Hussein to get nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, chemical weapons, biological weapons. How many people is he going to kill with such weapons?... We are not going to allow him to succeed.[emphasis added]
What these and other such statements remind us is that, by the time George Bush entered the White House in January 2001, the United States was already at war with Iraq, and in fact had been at war for a decade, ever since the first Gulf war in the early 1990’s.(This was literally the case, the end of hostilities in 1991 being merely a cease-fire and not a formal surrender followed by a peace treaty.) Not only that, but the diplomatic and military framework Bush inherited for neutralizing the Middle East’s most fearsome dictator had been approved by the United Nations. It consisted of (a) regular UN inspections to track and dispose of weapons of mass destruction (WMD’s) remaining in Saddam’s arsenal since the first Gulf war; (b) UN-monitored sanctions to prevent Saddam from acquiring the means to make more WMD’s; and (c) the creation of so-called “no-fly zones” over large sections of southern and northern Iraq to deter Saddam from sending the remnants of his air force against resisting Kurds and Shiite Muslims.
The problem, as Bill Clinton discovered at the start of his second term, was that this “containment regime” was collapsing. By this point Saddam was not just the brutal dictator who had killed as many as two million of his own people and used chemical weapons in battle against Iran (and in 1988 against Iraqis themselves). Nor was he just the regional aggressor who had to be driven out of Kuwait in 1991 by an international coalition of armed forces in Operation Desert Storm. As Clinton recognized, Saddam’s WMD programs, in combination with his ties to international terrorists, posed a direct challenge to the United States.
In a February 17, 1998 speech at the Pentagon, Clinton focused on what in his State of the Union address a few weeks earlier he had called an “unholy axis” of rogue states and predatory powers threatening the world’s security.“There is no more clear example of this threat,” he asserted,“than Saddam Hussein’s Iraq,” and he added that the danger would grow many times worse if Saddam were able to realize his thoroughly documented ambition, going back decades and at one point close to accomplishment, of acquiring an arsenal of nuclear as well as chemical and biological weapons. The United States, Clinton said,“simply cannot allow this to happen.”

Even socialist Sweden just is lowering their taxes. The Swedes are smarter than O'bama-damn.
STOCKHOLM--The Swedish government Thursday said the corporate tax rate will be lowered to 22% from 26.3% in its 2013 budget proposal.

"This is to improve the conditions for new jobs and investments in Sweden. The significant lowering of corporate tax is expected to strengthen the investor climate and growth in Sweden," the government said.

Someone get Sweden on the phone to call the idiot in the White House-look at what their own government said. Even Socialist Sweden is falling apart under entitlements and all that health care crap. They are running out of everyone else's money.

And, don't forget to mention that the Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit DURING A WAR, after which the Democrats increased it by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT.
And, don't forget to mention that the Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, a 5 trillion dollar debt after fighting a global war for 5 years... and winning it. Mission accomplished.))))) The Democrats have reversed almost all gains made by the US Armed Forces in addition to more than tripling the debt to what it is today, 16 trillion dollars.
What did Saul Alinsky say? The organizer isn't bound by the truth?

So where is that list of legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created the recession.

I keep asking & you keep running.

Chickenshit.

And really, we had both wars won in Jan. of 2007. Wow. You certainly like to rewrite history.

I know an Alinski worshiper like you probably thinks Clinton invaded Iraq.
He didn't. Really.
In his final year in office, Clinton decided that his contribution to Middle East peace would lie not in the removal of Saddam Hussein but in a grand attempt to resolve the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. With this, he missed his last chance to deal forcefully with the man he was publicly committed to overthrowing. Worse, by focusing his energies on a futile effort to placate Yasir Arafat, he diverted American attention not only from Saddam but from the mounting challenge represented by Osama bin Laden—not to mention the possibility that these two sinister figures might some day find common ground. As Clinton’s administration ended, Iraqi defectors were claiming that Saddam had set up camps in which terrorists connected with bin Laden were training to attack the United States.

Clinton didn't care. Just like everything that was wrong when he left office, he passed this off like a hot potato, Clinton couldn't get out of office soon enough.

Had the nerve to protest FOR the Vietnam War when he knew his church had lied to keep him out of the draft.

That is the type of person Mitt Romney is.
