Lawrence O'Donnell has a recommendation for President Obama on Inauguration Day: get rid of the Bible.

On Thursday, the MSNBC host reacted to news that Louie Giglio — the pastor selected to deliver the benediction at Obama's inauguration — had withdrawn from the ceremony over an anti-gay sermon he gave in the 1990s. O'Donnell said that Giglio had been "quoting the Bible," and that "homosexuality is a sin in the Bible."

He guffawed at the White House statement about its search for Giglio's replacement. "In other words, we will ensure that whoever delivers the benediction rejects the same parts of the Bible that President Obama rejects and most Democrats reject, even though every word of the Bible is the word of God,” O’Donnell said.

“As I've pointed out... no one accepts all of the teachings of the Bible," he continued. "Still, the president, following one of our most absurdest traditions in the government that invented the separation of church and state, will put his hand on this book filled with things he does not believe — filled with things that no one in the United States of America believes — and with his hand on this book he will recite the oath of office."

He suggested an alternative to Obama: swearing in on one of his daughters. "Now, wouldn't it be better if the president's hand was on the shoulder of one of his daughters, suggesting that he was honoring the oath of office as much as he honors Sasha and Malia?" O'Donnell asked.

Actually for oil!!! The same train he accused Bush of, LOL!!!
See? Liberals are low life, brain dead hypocrites!!!
Obama said we need to help Lybia for 300 fears but Syria is ok to kill 20,000 because Syria has no oil.
See?
Obama shuts down drilling for oil in United States but then gives billion to his controller George Soros to drill in Brazil.
Obama shuts down the keystone oil pipe so George Soros can keep using his polluting trains to move oil and become rich.
See? Liberals like you are easy to fool.
George Soros owe 2 billion in taxes but is forgiven by your incompetent community agitator.

Problem for you is they did. Look up Leon Panett's response when asked directly if the information gleaned from waterboarding led in part to the discovery of bin Laden.
I present testimony from the CIa and you tell me to lok something up.

You lost.

Time for you to give up with the stupidity.

Wateerboarding is of no value. Torture is useless, as people will make up stories to tell you things you want to hear.

I'll bet you would call Jesus a murderer if you were waterboarded just once, only for a minute.

OBAMA should remember he did not win 100% of the vote what does he think the election means he dictates to 47% of AMERICA FOH Majority Rule is not DEMOCRACY
Majority rule IS democracy, however, this is a constitutional republic just for the reason of not doing the same mistakes as others. Now we got a populist monarch in The White House hell-bent on destroying the Republic THROUGH democracy.

It is a historical imperative that an overactive executive branch can only go one way. Once the executive branch takes over and neither the legislative nor the economic arm is willing to oppose it, there can only be a brutal dictatorship awaiting. Humans are simply too unreliable to be given such vast amounts of power upon a few hands.

All you do is tell lies!!

Read it and weep, nitwit!!

""The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was flexible.

But some in the administration considered the warning to be just bluster. An intelligence official and a member of the Bush administration both told me in interviews that the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat. Intelligence officials, these sources said, protested that the idea of Bin Laden, an Islamic fundamentalist, conspiring with Mr. Hussein, an Iraqi secularist, was ridiculous, but the neoconservatives’ suspicions were nevertheless carrying the day.

In response, the C.I.A. prepared an analysis that all but pleaded with the White House to accept that the danger from Bin Laden was real.

“The U.S. is not the target of a disinformation campaign by Usama Bin Laden,” the daily brief of June 29 read, using the government’s transliteration of Bin Laden’s first name. Going on for more than a page, the document recited much of the evidence, including an interview that month with a Middle Eastern journalist in which Bin Laden aides warned of a coming attack, as well as competitive pressures that the terrorist leader was feeling, given the number of Islamists being recruited for the separatist Russian region of Chechnya.

And the C.I.A. repeated the warnings in the briefs that followed. Operatives connected to Bin Laden, one reported on June 29, expected the planned near-term attacks to have “dramatic consequences,” including major casualties. On July 1, the brief stated that the operation had been delayed, but “will occur soon.” Some of the briefs again reminded Mr. Bush that the attack timing was flexible, and that, despite any perceived delay, the planned assault was on track.

Yet, the White House failed to take significant action. Officials at the Counterterrorism Center of the C.I.A. grew apoplectic. On July 9, at a meeting of the counterterrorism group, one official suggested that the staff put in for a transfer so that somebody else would be responsible when the attack took place, two people who were there told me in interviews. The suggestion was batted down, they said, because there would be no time to train anyone else.""

----------

bush ignored the warnings, which were numerous.

I just gave you the proof.\\Now shut up and go stand in the corner.

Since 1972, Republicans have held the Presidency for 24 years, Dems 16. DUH

Republiclowns hold a majority of Governorships. DUH

Seems pretty stupid for you to blame the other party, while your party was in charge most of the time, and in most of the States.

But then, you've proven you're more than 'pretty stupid'.

That's as dumb as trying to blame the Iraq War on Dems.

Which is what the fat wingnut from Orlando maintains.
