And on that note........

Congress put conditions on their authorization which included;
Before employing military force in Iraq, the resolution requires that the president first determine that continued diplomatic efforts "or other peaceful means alone," will not "adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."
Did Bush adhere to that? No, UN inspectors were forced to leave before they could finish their job, not by Sadaam but Bush.
The Kurdish massacre occurred in March of 1988 during the Regan administration. What did Reagan do about it? Nothing except trying to blame it on Iran. Sadaam was our guy in the region. After the first gulf war "no fly" zones were established in the north and south and Sadaam no longer had any influence in the Kurdish region.
You right wingers keep bringing up Viet Nam but forget that it was Democratic liberals who rebelled against Johnson and forced him from office.
It was the Nixon campaign that scuttled the peace talks convincing the South Vietnamese that they could give them a better deal than the Johnson administration. In the end Nixon dragged the war on for four more years and South Vietnam ceased to exist.
No American lives were lost in Libya moron, civilians casualties came largely from government forces and would have been worse without intervention. Our role was logistical and supportive and well within our treaty obligations with NATO.

As usual, weak, blockhead libtard. Enjoy your crappy job & stay mad at the rest of the country because of your sorry situation. Good libtard!
Happy New Year!

As long as you keep repeating that...
We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.
...I'm going to keep repeating this.
Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.

Happy New Year everyone.
At least all our taxes won't go up this year.
Hopefully, the Democrat Senate won't kick the budget can down the road another four years and spend us into oblivion in the meantime.
Thankfully, another election is around the corner.
Let's hope Americans will get it right this time and elect a Republican Congress to finish out this two-term presidential fluke.
If there's even a glimmer of a chance Americans will wake up to the reality that Democrats are looking out for the future of the Democrat Party and not the country's, there's hope.
...and the beat goes on.

Dear Uncle Joe,
Thx for being a grouchy ol' NoNNumbskull fer a change, and working with the other grouchy ol'Numbskull leader of a brokeback state.
Some us were really NOT anticipating the UNideal, absoultely Ridiculous thought of milk, going to 8 dolluh a gallon.
Hell, talk about teeth falling out then-that's what happens when HARD WORKING, over acheiving people do NOT have enough TIME, to even DRINK their MILK on a LUNCH break.
So, We the INDEPENDENT People, appreciates the efforts on behalf of Both sides of of the lump and labelDuhm aisles, to do what is best for this nation.
Now keep up the BETTER work.
The T(axed) E(nough) A(lready drained dry) Party
Try for the-
CAP, CURB, Balance, B-U-D-G-E-T and live withn our means stuff in the next little while too-we'll be a BETTER nation for it if y'all do.
(and welcome to OUR geneRATIONAL realities too-that's right, y'all know y'all wouldn't want anyone stinking up your generational cereal either!)
Happy New Year-for ALL the people-NOT just for some!

Poor Duh A Vey, it's gotta be tough sometimes living in a 6 inch high square box realm, with a 12 inch high, pointy tin foil hat perpetually stuck on his head.
Happy New Year Carol!
#831573 Jan 1, 2013
Meh-one has to watch BOTH sides of the gnomes in toil foil hat aisles--especially ones with their heads so far up each others gnomebutts, they wouldn't have Any idea if the regular hard working people were even getting enough time to drink a damn carton of milk for lunch!!!!
Milk carton break!! HUMANITY RULES!
#831574 Jan 1, 2013
I wonder why Obama didn't come up with that idea???? Wait a minute...... he did come up with that idea!!!!!!!!!! Wonder why it never became some type of law?????????? Wait a minute.......... here's why:
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
#831575 Jan 1, 2013
I'm not going to guess at your job or how much you make or bring home, but I will say your the one mad that The President was reelected. So mad that all I see in your posts are blatant lies. If all the non conservatives on here jobs are so crappy, why are you the one mad? All you conservatives do is whine. So much that I'm drunk off your thoughts & it takes alot of wine to get a person drunk! Ya'll representatives are so stupid in going against the will of the people & driving us off the fiscal cliff. I agree it was just what Barack wanted so once they cut bush tax cuts & the president re implements them they will be known as the Obama tax cuts. Kinda smart you gotta admit!
#831577 Jan 1, 2013
Moderate the SALES of non-essential, over trupmed weapons, and tightly enforce the regs on them.
Do NOT touch the RIGHTS of "WE THE PEOPLE"...because NO, the velveteen poster boy (for some anyway-but definetly NOT all) does NOT have any right to that!
Protect the schools of this nation better-GO ARMY --training put to good use--security in every school!
And listen pointy tin foil hathead-just because YOU have good insurance, does NOT mean every does.
FEDERAL point of SALES tax NATIONALLY-NO EXEMPTIONS (NOT govt, church, org-NONE...make 'em payALL across the boards.
And double Nevada's!

For the umpteenth time, Bush was promoting home ownership.
When will you quit lying about this?
The only thing Bush did was try a power grab to put Fannie & Freddie under White House control to satisfy his banking buddies.
Clinton + Congress = balanced budget
Bush + same Congress = deficit & debt
#831579 Jan 1, 2013
That's in the CAP and CURB the abuses on BOTH sides of the aisles plan.
If they could just figure out how to pick up their pens and write one FAIRLY.

Except those of us that live i n reality-KNOW BETTER.
Give it up-the velveteen poster boy is just another potus puppet representative-even if he does wish he could be a Stalin or Hitler.
(Americans stay UNITED-keep thy stones gathered-NO COMMIE-MARXIST lunaTics of regimist misbehaviors allowed in office!!!)
TEA AND ALL the other voter imputs for considerations of whatever perusaions...because THAT'S DEMOCRACY!
#831582 Jan 1, 2013
You are a perfect Democrat. Wrong & stupid. Certainly no way to go through life.
#831583 Jan 1, 2013
You really need to check out some of the "CEO's" of that housing bubble sometime, when your hat isn't glaring into your eyeballs, convulting your vision of comprehensatory reading.
Plenty enough misdoings/mistakes--on BOTH sides of that, includig the the Ignorance of the we the people types nationally, in biting off more than they could chew, tinkiong der's some sort of majik mortgage fairy or something.
Because there ISN'T.
DUHHHHH A Vey -Duhmmy.
#831584 Jan 1, 2013
Warcthing the news any today duhmmy?
Iran's playing pin the missile on possible future oil tankers in the Straight of Hormuz.
(but they just want nuclear in case they run out of oil-righto hatheads.)

It just occurred to me that the loyalists in the 1770s probably criticized the original Tea Party participants in Boston just as much as modern-day loyalists criticized the Tea Party movement across the nation.
Ironic, isn't it, that the loyalists back then supported more taxation and were on the wrong side of history too?

We don't have a Middle East oil dependency dipstick. We're now a net exporter of petroleum products and what we do import comes mostly from Canada, Mexico, Brazil and the Caribbean.
Keystone is a massive con job. An independent study done by Cornell GLI showed that only a fraction of the jobs promised by would actually be created.
When you take into account the extra energy needed to extract and refines the heavy carbon laden tar sands oil it would actually cause fuel prices to rise.
The rest of your post is just too ignorant, delusional and racist to even bother with.
You're an idiot!
