Oh haven't you heard? Hillary has fell on her sword and taken the blame, good timing isn't it?

Obama the so called champion of women!

Besides Candy Crowley picks the questions the audience doesn't get to speak.

She's not going to ask him anything hard.

Frank Marshall & Bill Ayers are figments of your imagination. One was a family friend & other merely an acquaintance. One was his pastor. All these were investigated & they found nothing truthful to report on.
Your problem is you confuse the sewage from Fox, Limbaugh & Beck as the truth.
BS, plain and simple BS, Davey you wouldn't know Frank Davis, or Billy Ayres if they passed you, on your way to the food pantry? Everybody in and out of politics in Chicago, knows or knew those Communists. So your 'aquaintances' holcomb holds about as much water as a colender.

The problem dear Carol is that you and your right leaning media pals don't have many of the facts, no one does actually because the CIA is involved and that tends to shut down the free flow of information.
The CIA is charged with providing the US administration and departments with intelligence__with the CIA absent/evacuated, there was no one beyond CNN to provide details on what happened.

How do you feel about garnering a profit from promoting irresponsible behavior? Bain was instrumental and responsible for the increase of teenage smokers. They did this in Russia too, creating a brand called Vogue, and even threw in a little free bracelet with each pack. Smoking increased considerably because of it; the profits were secreted out of Russia, through Luxembourg and then to the Cayman Islands.
The closing of the Sensata plant in Fremont after forcing its employees to suffer through the indignity of training their Chinese counterparts their jobs, packing up and shipping the plant to China, thereby causing loss of jobs and devastating the town would make anyone angry and rightfully so.
Romney moved the plant to China to benefit from slave labor.

Phil it has worked Reagan, Clinton, JFK, now show me where trickle up has Worked!!
The best years of trickle-down economics came under Reagan who inherited an economy in serious trouble. Some would say by virtue of his tax cuts he helped save the country and turn the economy around. Few mention however that Reagan ran an average top tax rate of 48.5% over his eight year term; five of those years saw a top tax bracket of 50%. Still it was a huge improvement over the 70% rate that those in the highest tax bracket were paying. Under Reagan capital gains tax was 28% compared to 15% today. Another key point that many nostalgic Americans forget is that under Reagan he raised taxes several times including payroll taxes. What happened next is amazing considering that trickle down was supposed to save the economy. Social security began operating at a surplus and the administration took the surplus to spend on other government programs all the while replacing the funds with IOU’s. Not all American are aware that social security has a cap on contribution for those earning roughly $100,000 per year or more. In other words a citizen making less than $100,000 per year contributes a higher percentage of his income for the program than a person making (for example)$300,000 per year since he only contributes on his 1st $100,000, the remaining $200,000 is not subject to contribution.

You homosexuals have a one track mind, here is something that will get your attention:

Link to the Health Departments Provided.

.

Gay Sexual Practices Lead to Uptick in Disease

.
FECAL SEX About 80% of gays admit to licking and/or inserting their tongues into the anus of partners and thus ingesting medically significant amounts of feces. Those who eat or wallow in it are probably at even greater risk. In the diary study,5 70% of the gays had engaged in this activity--half regularly over 6 months. Result?--the "annual incidence of hepatitis A in...homosexual men was 22 percent, whereas no heterosexual men acquired hepatitis A." In 1992,26 it was noted that the proportion of gays engaging in oral/anal sex had not declined.

Gay Men and Shigellosis
What is Shigellosis?
Shigellosis is a disease that causes stomach cramps, fever, diarrhea and sometimes bloody diarrhea.
What causes Shigellosis?
Shigellosis is caused by the Shigella bacterium. Shigella is found in feces (shit).
Who gets it?
Anyone can get Shigellosis. Gay men get Shigellosis at higher rates than others. People with a weakened immune
system get more sick than others.
How do you get it?
You can get Shigellosis when feces comes in contact with your mouth. This can happen with oral/anal sex play. This
can happen when you use your fingers or hand for anal sex play and then touch your mouth. Even microscopic
amounts of feces that get into your mouth can cause Shigellosis.
How can I avoid Shigella?
Play safely. In addition to safe sex guidelines to prevent HIV, maintain good hygiene. Wash every
part of your body that is sexual with soap and water before, after and between sex play. Use condoms
or other kinds of barriers like dental dams, latex gloves or plastic wrap and be aware of
what body parts may have come into contact with feces during sex play. Wash them with soap
and water. Use condoms with sex toys, and discard the condoms after use.
What do I do if I think I have Shigellosis?
• If you think you have Shigellosis, see your doctor.
• Inform your partners.
• Wash your hands a lot.
• Don’t have sex until 7 days after symptoms end.
• Talk with a medical provider about what you can do to reduce your risk.

In 2001 and again in 2003 George W Bush passed more tax breaks, primarily for wealthy Americans, reversing the policy Bill Clinton had adopted previously. Bush’s legacy is very fresh in the minds of Americans so a recap will be all that is needed. George W Bush had the worst job creation record of any President in modern history with some of the lowest top tax rates in history. In addition to this fact, he was able to take a budget surplus and turn it into a deficit in the span of just 1 year, undoing all of the work Clinton and congress took eight years to do.

Today corporations are making record profits; the Dow Jones is near record highs and despite these facts, job growth remains low, proving there is little to no correlation between incomes at the top and job growth in the middle and bottom. If that were the case, based on this theory we should also be experiencing record employment numbers instead of struggling with 8%+ unemployment.

While the GOP continues to discuss the virtues of trickle down, the claims do not pass an examination of the facts. The only part of the trickle-down theory that is true is that the benefit to the middle class does come in a trickle, a very slow, barely visible trickle.

You can believe what you want about the Vietnam War. It was a dumb waste of human life that could have been avoided if we had only given Mihn a chance. He could have united Vietnam & not have had to seek help from the Communists.
Ho Chi Minh became statistically the worst mass murderer in the history of civilization. The United States was right to oppose him. The Democrats... well, you can say the same thing about them that you say about associates of othe rmass murderers in history, like those who joined Hitler.
You have been indoctrinated with the lies generated by the Democrats. Post the lies you've bneen indoctrinated with. I'll help you. Here's the post again:
You are well versed in the system of lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam.
Here's the truth:
Ho Chi Minh didn't become a concern until he asked the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French after he went to Paris and asked them to come back to Veitnam. The Soviet Union used this as an opportunity to expand their influence during the Cold War. He didn't become significant until the Soviet Union was supporting his invasions of South Vietnam. If he never invaded South Vietnam, he'd be about as significant as some other small-pond bullshit dictator with too big of an ego in the world.
Listen carefully to this. This is the key ingredient to understanding the US involvement in Vietnam:
As the Soviet Union increased its involvement in the invasions of South Vietnam, the US increased its involvement in the defense of South Vietnam.
That means the US involvement didn't become significant until after Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Let's say that again:
Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Immediately after the UN authorized the creation of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh began invading South Vietnam.
This is exactly like how the proxy war in Korea started.
Now, idiot, here's the key:
As the Soviet involvement in the communist invasions of South Vietnam increased, the US involvement in the defense of South Vietnam increased.
US involvement didn't become direct until AFTER the UN divided the country.
The Soviet Union involvement was already at a significant level prior to this. In fact, as I told your ignorant ass previously, the communist used Soviet weapons at the battle of Dien Bien Phu, which was before the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries.
The Soviet Union is engaged in Vietnam.
The US assists South Vietnam.
The strategy of the United States during the Cold War was not to abandon our allies and run away.
The war was all but over in 1970 when the NVA ran away to avoid destruction when the US forces entered the Parrot's Beak in 1970. They waited until US ground forces left Vietnam in 1971 to launch the largest communist invasion of the war. They were defeated by the South Vietnamese WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS.
Now, I want you to begin your next post with one of the lies in the system of lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam:
"The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themselves."
Then tell us about how the communists defeated the South Vietnamese in 1972 when they mounted the single largest invasion of the war, the Easter Offensive of 1972.
... got a problem, don't you....
It seems the single largest invasion of the war wasn't successful, and there is no history of any US ground combat units fighting against the communists.
It was the South Vietnamese that defeated the communists without assistance from US ground combat units.
Now, tell us how the Democrat-controlled congress of 1973 helped the ally of the United States after they defeated a massive communist invasion during the Cold War.
