Clinton wanted to oust Saddam and his regime BEFORE 9/11 as did every Democrat on Capital Hill. Albright, Kerry, Pelosi and Clinton - to name just a few - all said Saddam was a serious threat and had to go.
So why didn't they say that AFTER 9/11?

Obama said the U.S. is going to start sending weapons to the freedom fighters in Syria.

The New York Times reported that this has already been happening. Obama said it hasn't.

Why is the liberal talking points newspaper disputing their hero?

Maybe Obama is lying about other things?

An explosion erupted at a federal office building in an Arizona town on Friday morning.

The explosion occurred around 8:15 a.m. local time at the Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande, Ariz. Although there were multiple people in the building at the time, there were no reported injuries. The explosion was triggered by the detonation of a device, which was placed on the back door of the building.

AzFamily.com reports that federal authorities are now investigating the explosion.

Brace yourself.

Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.

The Act declared that it was the Policy of the United States to support "regime change."

The Act was passed 360-38 in the U.S. House of Representatives and by unanimous consent in the Senate. President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law on October 31, 1998.

The law's stated purpose was: "to establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq."

Congress found: "It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."

On December 16, 1998, President Bill Clinton mandated Operation Desert Fox, a major four-day bombing campaign on Iraqi targets.

The Act was cited as a basis of support in the Congressional Authorization for use of Military Force Against Iraq in October 2002.

...that was before democrats became weasels.

You can say whatever all you want-doesn't make it reality, or even true.

(and that's SURE as heck not how I have ever spent or would desire to spend ANY part of MY life-so I thank a good deity EVERY day, that I may never have to!! The parental duties of tending to Infants and children excluded from scenarios)

Glad I'm not around any right wing nutcases like you ot their minds either.

Peggy Noonan: Why can't Obama just be nicer to Boehner and McConnell?

I promise, this is not The Onion, this is Peggy Noonan, and it's for real:

"You watch and wonder: Why does it always have to be cliffs with this president? Why is it always a high-stakes battle? Why doesn't he shrewdly re-enact Ronald Reagan, meeting, arguing and negotiating in good faith with Speaker Tip O'Neill, who respected very little of what the president stood for and yet, at the end of the day and with the country in mind, could shake hands and get it done? Why is there never a sense with Mr. Obama that he understands the other guys' real position?

It's not as if Mr. Boehner and the Republicans wouldn't deal. They've been weakened and they know it. A year ago they hoped winning the Senate and the presidency would break the stasis. They won neither. Mr. Obama not only was re-elected, it wasn't that close, it was a clean win. If the president was clear about anything throughout the campaign, it was that he wanted to raise taxes on those he calls the rich. So you might say that a majority of the American people just endorsed that move.

No one would know this better than Mr. Boehner, who has risen to where he is in part because he's good at seeing the lay of the land and admitting what's there."

First, hahahahahahahahaha!

Second, if she seriously wants to know why everything seems like a crisis, maybe should should ask George W. Bush, who left behind an economic crisis and two failed wars, or maybe she should ask Mitch McConnell, who started using the filibuster from day one to undermine the popular will, or maybe she should ask John Boehner who decided that threatening government shutdown and manufacturing a debt limit crisis was a good idea. And let's not forget: The only reason we're in the middle of yet another policy drama is that Republicans (a) decided to pass tax cuts that expire and (b) insisted during the debt limit fiasco on a massive automatic spending cut to kick in at the end of the year. And it's John Boehner and Mitch McConnell who are refusing to accept the verdict of the electorate on election day—a verdict that even Noonan recognizes is legitimate.

Of course, Peggy Noonan doesn't really want to know why everything always seems like a crisis. She just wants to create a rhetorical framework to make Republican behavior seem reasonable. The problem for her is that reality keeps on getting in the way.

Purchase of a new car is an economic decision based on cost of maintenance of one's existing car. Cost of car ownership is overwhelmingly driven by the capital cost of the car purchase. So, purchase of a new car is rarely justified unless one's existing car is unreliable.
Most decent automobiles are good for at least 150,000 to 200,000 miles, regardless of age.
Most people buy new cars to stoke their ego.
The people who manufacture goods don't give a damn where you buy them. In fact, the lower overhead of Walmart gives consumers more purchasing power, resulting in purchase of more goods.
I cannot imagine purchasing a new car just for an ego trip.

Sustainability, reliability and overall resulting in LESS expense-by all means.

Anything else--just plain-

Not necessarily. Just mean that religion and politics do not mix and that the Bible can be interpreted however one chooses. In particular, implying that Jesus Christ was a liberal (or conservative) as you did is foolish.

Because he was NOT responsible for 9/11. Not to put a fine point on it, but its the same as you having your handbag snatched by a black man and the first black man mug shot the police show you, you yell out, that's him!

Casa Grande isn't large enough to have "office buildings", probably just a storefront.

You saw the UN vote, it was the US and Israel vs the rest of the world. Even the US closest allies abstained from voting. At some point in time, as most of Wall st has jewish influence and therefore by default call the shots in Washington especially when Republicans are in power. It might be time to wise up and start negotiations for peace on a equal footing. For a start if you are in the middle of peace talks you don't approve another 2000 homes to be built on disputed territory. It is time someone stood back and took their head out of the chaff bag.

Why do people lease cars, a terrible economic decision? The only apparent reason is the desire for a new car every two or three years.

Homer wants everyone to purchase a new car to stimulate the economy.
