You're pathetic.

Hillary did not become a NY Senator until 2001, after Bill left office!! DUH

As for her being quiet, that's patent bullshit. The Republiclowns hated and attacked her throughout th eClinton Admin. She was far from quiet, which is why she was well known enough to win a Senate Seat in NY.

You are blissfully ignorant.

Had Bush not been a drunk and incompetent, he might have listened to Clinton's intel people.

But he was, and he didn't.

And Bush is the least popular President in history because Americans know what a deunk and loser he is.

The parkway is on Google Maps. Take a look. Marcy Park is several miles down th road from Langley.

But,with your penchant for the BIG LIE, yo'll say anything.

You lose again, Dweeb.

It was the drunk in the White House that destroyed our nation with his drunken rage induced wars, regardless of your lies.

Yet you still can't admit that Bush is an out of control drunk, hiding in Dallas, the hated man of American Politics.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You said one thing that was correct, Hillary led the health care fight. After they blew Foster's head off, she shut her mouth and Hillary Care died. The only voice heard after that, other than Clinton's idiocy that caused the 1994 mid-term election disaster for the Democrats, was Jocylin Elders - another absolute idiot.
Foster got his head blown off, and immediately Hillary shuts her mouth and you don't hear another peep from her until the Democrats reward her with the New York Senate seat.
And, even you have to admit that dumping the body at the front gates of the CIA headquarters was just a little too Hollywood dramatic.
You obviously don't know the Parkway very well.

This morningís headlines are unexpectedly brought to you by the Commerce Department, and at a glance they bring bad news. According to an advanced estimate by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, GDP actually decreased at a 0.1 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter of 2012, after having increased 3.1 percent in the previous quarter.
Thatís not where youíd normally see your first indication of a new recession, but itís an alarming number nonetheless. On closer inspection, though, the report is actually filled with good news.
Personal income is way up, leading to an increase in both personal savings and consumption. Private sector investment is way up.
All of those gains were swamped by a huge hit to defense spending, which fell 22.2 percent. Thatís probably a sour mix of statistical noise, war ďsavings,Ē a bit of hoarding by defense contractors ahead of the sequester-induced financial drought, and so on. But it goes to show that pulling federal spending out of the economy can eradicate growth.
Thatís not what youíll take away from todayís report if youíre within earshot of the conservative noise machine, which is treating this report much like they treated jobs reports ahead of the election. Back then, employment growth wasnít weak because of state and local government job losses, but because Obama. Now, GDP is down because the economy sensed Obama wouldnít say much about the economy during his inaugural address and preemptively contracted. Or something along those lines.
Not that anyoneís asking me, but that seems like a huge missed strategic opportunity, driven perhaps by the fact that Republicans donít want to admit lower government spending (austerity) is to blame here. Itís scrambling their brains. Itís making them forget about the rhetorical virtues of military Keynesianism.

Whistling in the dark.

Obama is celebrating measly 1.2% GDP growth for all of 2012.

Welcome to Europe, we are finally there.

This is in some ways a conservativeís dream GDP report. The private sector is humming along in the face of shrinking government. Now, they canít celebrate that ó it makes sense to drape the negative top line number over Obamaís shoulders, and in this particular case the part of government thatís shrinking is the only one the right really cares about.

There are three things I'd like to focus on today and they are as follows.

1. Is it possible in your opinion for blacks and whites to coexist together?

2. Do the lenders of capital deserve to earn more than the borrowers of capital?

3. Can the Catholic religion survive without embracing Judaism and renouncing Islam?

Making others "think" is all well and good. There is no need to make them sick, however. Please stick to the societal norms.
