don't you know? it was a "man-caused" disaster and not terrorism. i should probably tell all those serious looking guys in military gear carrying assault weapons who we see everywhere in NYC that Homer Slacker of BoDunk, PA said they aren't needed.

No, no, what I'm saying is Obama took a crisis that he didn't want it to go to waste and now we're 6 trillion more in debt.
I'm also saying the Democrats were privy to the same intelligence as Bush (and were just hoping you'd be stupid enough to believe they were "lied to"), voted for both wars and voted for the funding of both wars.
However, Newt and Clinton's Republican Congress are responsible for the surplus during the 6 of Clinton's 8 year term. He was just smart enough to go along with it.
Are we good now?
No, the democrats were given the intel by bushie. Besides...

"... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.

Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."

SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.

Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.

SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?

Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."

So yes, bushie did lie. It's really clear.

RAMALLAH, West Bank -- Euphoric Palestinians erupted in cheers, honked car horns and chanted "God is great" after the United Nations endorsed an independent state of Palestine, giving sweeping international backing to their demands for sovereignty over lands Israel occupied in 1967.
The massive international recognition of the Palestinians' right to a state – only nine of 193 General Assembly members voted against it – gave them hope that the tide had turned in their favor.
"It's a great feeling to have a state, even if in name only," said civil servant Mohammed Srour, 28, standing in a flag-waving a crowd of more than 2,000 packed into a square in the West Bank city of Ramallah late Thursday. "The most beautiful dream of any man is to have an independent state, particularly for us Palestinians who have lived under occupation for a long time."

Terrorism is not caused by man? Oh, well maybe it's caused by global warming. Thanks for the update.

We have to put a stop to this notion that the government owns everything and that they are doing us a favor by letting us keep more of our own money, property, and medical care. If not there will be no end to their assumption of power.

Not anymore amazing than liberals being told democrats voted to give Bush permission to go into Iraq (seeing they wanted to remove him themselves back in 1998) and voted to fund that war before it became politically expedient to become weasels and it's as if their hearing just shuts down.

The Determinators is a chilling story which uncovers the dark underside of the massive healthcare reform bill that, once fully implemented, will significantly threaten the way Americans live and die. Based on the book "The Battle for America's Soul" by CL Gray, MD. The Determinators feature leading experts in the field of healthcare who have studied the law and it's impending ramifications.
The Determinators highlights several of the worst elements of Obamacare that big-government bureaucrats want to keep hidden from the public until it's too late. It's information people need to know before they decide how to vote.

Hope some of you will watch it.
Remember...knowledge is power.
LOL! Newsflash Carol: the people already voted! Duh.
They voted for healthcare, they voted for raising taxes on the rich.
All your whining is for naught.

That is not the notion at all.

The idea that you think a tax cut doesn't give you more money is just ridiculous.

Why don't you argue yourself to death over the net difference in your account due to a discount vs an instant rebate.

It doesn't matter if you keep more of your money or if more is put into your account. The net result is that you have more.

You have more because of the tax cut.

You can eep arguing this until you're blue in the face, you just make yourself look ridiculous.

Do you have more money in your account? Yes

What event caused this? Tax cut.

POOR people love them some Obama....

Fwee cell gimmicks do work...with these idiots...

"...“On Nov. 6, Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income. That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters.” Yet that analysis ignores that those making less than $50,000 represented 41% of the electorate in 2012, and many of those people probably would argue that they’re in the middle class."

The idea that you think the government 'gives' you more money by a tax cut is scary at least worrisome at the most.
