Again, very interesting...

NBC - "There’s also a reason why the White House decided to abandon the idea of any Plan B: They will own part of the chaos if they pursue a Plan B. But by having no Plan B, the Obama White House is trying to ensure that raising the debt ceiling is all on Congress. What’s more, Obama seemed to accept that a government shutdown -- and not the debt ceiling -- is the better place to have a fiscal fight."

They also elaborated on other broken promises that were not kept by this president.

You damn lieberals have no clue, do you? It was with FAST AND FURIOUS guns sold to the Terrorists that the Bengazi attacks happened at all. Eric Holder, through his Deputy, Arne Wilcox II, personally arranged the sale of US .223 exploding rounds to Libyan and Yemeni extremisists. The Navy Seals killed in the attack were killed with these same type of bullets. Connect the dots.

Well, back from the hairdresser I guess. She lives in the basement so, all in all, it's a pretty quick trip. I went with a sort of Diana-esque look and am quite beautiful I think. Unless I miss my guess the building superintendent is taking a shine to me. Of course, he's black, but my eyes have been opened on that front.

Carol, exactly what part of the proveing lies do you not understand. The prominent Democrats you speak of fell into the hype and the current mood of our great nation so shortly after 911, along with all of the fear mongering from Bush-Cheney. Your rush to war and your obvious lack of concern for our troops speaks volumes for your party.You and your party alone botched two wars, one propelled by numerous lies, the other from neglect while concentrating on the lie induced one. You can spin it all you want but it doesn't change the facts. Eight years of bungling on all fronts is what led us to our current messes....."PERIOD" CASE CLOSED!!!!
Well, they're pretty stupid then, aren't they?

If they believed the same CIA evidence that Bush and his generals had and then decided it was all a big ruse just to fool them - when every single one of them said the exact same thing about Saddam just a few years prior - they probably shouldn't be in leadership positions.

1st black female computer science PhD student at Univ. of Michigan reveals lack of rolemodels,Am I really the first?”

That was the first thought that came to mind when Kyla McMullen, 29, found out she would soon become University of Michigan’s first African-American female computer science PhD alumna this past year.

McMullen later decided to go to the records office to search for another fellow black female alumnus to connect with. But she soon discovered that she would become the first black female student in the history of the program to complete the PhD.

“Typically when you think of someone who is in computer science. you think of a person who is a geek — with pocket protectors, suspenders and highwater pants,” McMullen joked in a phone interview with theGrio.“African-American women often don’t think ‘Okay, I wanna be that [nerd].””

While McMullen’s graduation this past spring marked a racial landmark for Michigan’s computer science department, she said that her experience in the department was sometimes “isolating” because she had very few people to turn to for mentorship.

President Clinton did not invade Iraq
He wanted to. He but bombed Iraq instead.

LILY, PLEASE READ THIS...PLEASE!! Taken DIRECTLY from the terms laid out in H.R.4655 Iraq Liberation Act of 1998:

http://www.iraqwatch.org/government/US/Legisl...

"Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 - Declares that it should be the policy of the United States to SEEK TO REMOVE THE SADDAM HUSSEIN REGIME FROM POWER IN IRAQ and to replace it with a democratic government.

"Expresses the sense of the Congress that once the Saddam Hussein regime is removed from power in Iraq, the United States should support Iraq's transition to democracy by providing humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people and democracy transition assistance to Iraqi parties and movements with democratic goals..."

It can't be any more clear. It really can't.

" "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.

It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." -- Sen.

Impeachment Of President Barack H. Obama For War Crimes

Whereas, Barack H. Obama is Commander In Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces and the head of the Executive Branch of the United States government, and

Whereas, President Obama, on 19 March 2011, committed a criminal act by ordering the U.S. military to war in Libya without first obtaining the consent of the U.S. Congress in a direct violation of the U.S. Constitution, and

Whereas, the illegal U.S. invasion, bombing and occupation of Iraq initiated by the Bush administration continues under the Obama administration; and

Whereas, the U.S. government is currently engaged in illegal wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya, and President Obama pledged to increase the number of military personnel and tax dollars spent on the these wars, and

Whereas, the U.S. military used and continues to use depleted uranium munitions, cluster bombs and white phosphorous in densely populated areas in violation of U.S. laws and international laws and treaties prohibiting the indiscriminate killing of civilians; and,

Whereas, the Geneva Conventions specifically prohibit the use of especially injurious weapons and materials causing unnecessary harm that remain active and lethal after battle, and over large areas of land, and

Whereas, large numbers of babies born in Iraq and Afghanistan suffer life-long illness and deformity like severe disfigurements and brain damage, Down’s syndrome, and weak hearts doctors state are caused by the U.S. military’s massive and widespread use of toxic and radioactive materials, and

Whereas, millions upon millions of Iraqi, Afghani, Pakistani, Yemeni, Somali, and Libyan civilians have been maimed, poisoned, displaced from their homes, and killed in a direct result of ongoing, illegal acts of war by the United States, and

Whereas, illegal, immoral and counterproductive detainee torture and brutalization at the hands of the U.S. military’s Immediate Reaction Force continue at Guantanamo under the Obama administration and in particular, the torture of Pfc. Bradley Manning at Quantico, Virginia, and

Whereas, President Obama is an accessory after the fact in obstructing justice by failing to order the Department of Justice to initiate investigations into numerous and blatant U.S. war crimes committed by the Bush administration, for which it is manifestly accountable under the law, and

As is the case always, your logic is totally flawed. Clinton conveyed his opinion but didn't start a war based on lies and accusations. The Iraqi war will forever be Bush-Cheneys mistake along with the neglect in Aft. Just by pretending or wishing that the Democrats were also to blame shows that you think it also was a mistake, but given the depth of your fanatacism along with your obvious inability to see the forest for the trees there is little hope of you ever seeing reality.
Clinton signed a piece of legislation that was passed by an overwhelming majority in Congress specifically stating it was the policy of the United States to remove Saddam Hussein and his regime from power.

But you'll believe anything, won't you?

I realize i'm beating an over aged dead horse here, but your leaders hyped and lied us into a war that they wanted and it will forever be their war. Bush-Cheney knew exactly what they were doing and also their real intentions, they also knew that Iraq was of no threat to us. Most that voted for the action in Iraq were persuaded either by pressure or the mood of the nation so shortly after 911, and Bush preyed on that. Your war, you own it PERIOD.
