France under Mitterand was heavily invested in Iraq and Iran throughout the seventies, eighties, and nineties, and supplied not only arms but nuclear reactor parts. Iran in particular was one of their best trading partners and was responsible for reducing the debts of the state and making it possible, ironically, for France to disastrously socialize.
Germany too had large financial interests in Iraq and worked to provide the rogue nation with arms and car and parts for nuclear weapons including the highly unstable triggering mechanism as well as the explosive shield that surrounds the fissile material.
In neither case did we receive any sort of support for invading Iraq to bring democracy to what was virtually an enslaved people. At the very least this makes those countries ungrateful. At the worst it makes them traitors.
President George W Bush Sec of State, Colin Powell, endorsed President Obama in 2012.

As much as Barack Obama would like to shift that blame onto Congress, the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of President. It is first and foremost a leadership problem that is crippling America—and the leader is President Barack Obama—not the many members of Congress.
Obama has surrounded himself with academics, theoreticians and politicians and all of their solutions are wrong, flawed and ineffective. Don’t take my word for it. Look at the evidence. Nobody in his inner circle has meaningful business experience. He not only doesn’t understand business, he dislikes businesses; they are only useful as a way to collect taxes to redistribute.
Bush’s mistakes were clearly serious errors, but they pale in comparison with Obama’s failures since he took office. The Democratically controlled Congress was complicit with Obama’s failures. They have not submitted, and Obama has not submitted a realistic budget for the country in over 800 days—a clear failure to meet their responsibilities.(Exception: Obama’s irresponsible Feb. budget, which was voted down 97-0 by a Democratically controlled Senate.
You have accomplished something no other president has done. You’ve spent America into a hole that will take a decade to fix, and kept more Americans out of work longer than anyone in recent history, and you’ve accomplished all this in record time, only 2-1/2 years. Who knows how much harm you can do given still more time.

I was 100% correct, dumbass
Obama has submitted a budget every year in which he was required to do so.
.....so you can say exactly what you said. What is the aggregate vote for all these "budgets"? Did even one democrat vote FOR them? Submitting a ridiculous budget is worse than submitting none at all, still, it's the Senate's job and they eat Obama's sh!t.

Really?

Obama pretty much whiffed and wimped out on gun control, at least from the leftwing perspective.

His strongest proposal was for a new assault weapons ban, and even that is DOA in Congress.

Whre's that nutjob, Old Raider that was claiming Obama was not going after guns a few months ago?

State officials in Oregon and Texas are vowing to fight back against any attempt by the federal government to impose new gun control laws.

GUN CONTROL

In 1952, the Supreme Court ruled that executive orders could not make new law. Executive orders are therefore supposed to be about enforcing a current law or helping manage the enforcement of a current law. This is a matter of interpretation, and subject to argument on both sides. Whatever the President does, it will no doubt end up being challenged and argued in court (as it should be).

Law enforcement welcomes veterans serving in MP-AP-SP and certain other roles.

Many employers fret over hiring recently returning combat vets.
