I am sure Obama believes that today. But this economic situation was inherited, not created by Obama.
Republicans won the right to drive the bus in 2000, they took office in 2001with a balanced budget & left with the worse recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown & two quagmire wars. These things drives those deficits.
The reckless actions under Bush is the leadership failure.
They had six years of total control and that's when they destroyed our country with bad decisions and spending, and not a peep from the sheep?

It seems to me they blew Vincent Foster's head off right in front of her to make a point. If you noticed, before they blew Vincent Foster's head off, Hillary was a major mouthpiece. You couldn't shut her up. Immediately after they blew Vincent Foster's head off, she shut up and you didn't hear a peep out of her again until the Democrats rewarded her with a Senate seat from New York.
I think that game is still being played. She look actually scared on that show.
She looked as scared as Sam Nunn did when Bill Clinton launched a sneak attack on Haiti while he, Colin Powell and Jimmy Carter were actually in the house of the dictator Clinton was invading to depose. You can bet they immediately took them down into the basement and put guns to their heads.
The way I see it, Colin Powell made a call to the Pentagon and talked with someone who turned that invasion around... against the orders of the president. Otherwise, they would have just put a bullet in their heads as soon as the invasion arrived.
I recall watching those three appear with Clinton immediately after. Jimmy Carter's eyes looked like he had just seen a photo of Rosie O'Donnel naked. Sam Nunn was very obviously shaken, probably had shitinhispants. Colin Powell was the only composed one of the three.

The Beginning of the March to War in Iraq, Eleven Years Later

Eleven years ago today, the U.S. government publicly began marching towards war with Iraq when President Bush gave his State of the Union address in which he made this statement:

States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.

It is instructive to return to this appalling speech from time to time to remember how it was that the U.S. was led into the debacle in Iraq. It is important to note that the core claims in this speech were nonsense, and were recognized as such by some people at the time. The so-called “axis” was no axis at all. The Iraqi and Iranian regimes were mortal foes, and their interests were as divergent as they possibly could have been. The sole reason for including them together was to maximize the public’s fear and to conjure up bogus comparisons with the Axis powers.

One of the main pro-war arguments in the months before the invasion relied heavily on the idea that Iraq had “terrorist allies” and that it would hand over its alleged WMDs to them, but neither claim was valid. As it turned out, Iraq had no WMDs to give to anyone. If it had possessed these weapons, there is no reason to believe that a regime that had gone to enormous expense to build such things would give them away to a third party that could use them for its own purposes. The supposed connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq was simply made-up. The terrorist-with-WMDs scenario was particularly important for advocates of the invasion, because it was the only way that they could get around the reality that the U.S. and its allies could rely on traditional deterrence for their security.

As we learned in the years that followed, the cost of preventive war was quite high in lives and wealth, and all of the costs of the Iraq war were incurred in an entirely unnecessary and avoidable conflict. Had the U.S. been more “indifferent” and less intent on waging preventive war, many thousands of Americans and 100,000+ Iraqis would not have perished in the conflict. I hope never again to see our country embrace such a disastrous policy.

To answer the post, you have to comment on what you think about the so-called "suicide note" with the hole mysteriously torn in it where a person would normally sign it, and the fact that the body was dumped at the front entrance to the CIA headquarters at Langley. If you ignorant and don't have any knowledge of the event yourself, perhaps you can copy and paste something from the book you referenced.

Same-O, same-O....

Politicians (d OR r) Helping rich friends...

"...“Baucus’ Finance Committee passed a bill in August extending 50 expiring deductions and credits for favored industries."

GE...

"Extension of subpart F exception for active financing income. This is the extension of the section that played a central role in GE paying exactly ZERO ($0.00) in U.S. corporate income tax while making $5.1 billion in U.S. profits. Now that’s a sweet deal! Peter Prowitt, formerly Baucus’ chief of staff, is now an in-house lobbyist and VP at GE. GE filings show Prowitt on the lobbying teams that won wind-tax credits, electric-vehicle tax credits, and “Extension of Subpart F Deferral for Financial Services. And if you think this all might be a major coincidence, two weeks before the Finance Committee hearing during which the bill was hashed out, GE’s political action committee topped off its contributions to Baucus’ Glacier PAC with a $2,000 check, according to the PAC’s federal filings. This brought GE’s contributions to Baucus’ PAC to the legal maximum of $10,000 for the election cycle."
