Oh, for heaven's sake. If you're going to be a part of this discussion, at least go back a page or two or try and keep up.
I already posted this not 30 minutes ago...the video and the transcript and even excerpts where Obama mentions the video 3 separate times.

I saw the speech when it happened. Don't you keep up with any current events?
Dumb question, I know.
Its likely that I was at work when he spoke, don't you work?

Are you denying that congress doesn't have to approve money spent by the government? Get some help on this because you obviously don't know the correct answer.
... goddam idiots....

What I am doing is asking a question. Here it is again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple source of money will suffice for the answer.

Hillary Clinton was a lock for 2008.
How did that work out?
I suspect about as well as its worked out for the Republicans shuffling the also-rans to the top of the ticket. In 2016 should we expect a Clinton/Gingrich matchup? That's just got too much historical irony to be plausible.

Hey genius libtard,
Did you tell us how the government of Afghanastan supporting the terrorists responsible for the deaths of 3,000 people on 911 wasn't related to national security?
thats a lie......the country most responsible for those 9-11 terrorists is non other that BUSHES kissing OIL partners from SAUDIA ARABIA. the only thing that poor azz country afganistan is responsibe for is continuously moving the opium trade to its destination. the american drug lords and republican SUPER PACS in the gov't needed to get their hands on that money so they could affect the elections here in america.
they did rather well.....bush got elected a 2nd term.

<quoted text>LQQkie what else I found on the overnight shift. Carol attended the University of Illinois (late sixties early seventies era). Illinois is of course a BIG TEN university and might even rank in the top ten in certain subject matter* but definitely not Education at Bachelors level.
For those of you who missed reading Carol"s college era drama the first twenty times she posted it, she was married to husband #1 at that time and came to believe that all her uber liberal professors and instructors picked on her because of her religious views.
* U of I Urbana has one of the best intel science PhD programs in the nation__definitely top ten perhaps top two but that area of study was not yet created when Carol was there. Hah, those were the days of key punch cards.

continuing the GOP slap fest...

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Monday swiftly denounced Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for a joke about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the former Republican presidential nominee made on Twitter.

After McCain faced accusations of racism for a tweet in which he alluded to Ahmadinejad as a monkey, the senior Arizona senator told his critics to "lighten up." Amash reacted with surprise to the original tweet before telling McCain to "wisen up" and stop making "racist jokes."

During his first campaign your Liar-in-Chief promised to bring the troops home if only we voted for HIM. "Due...?" That's funny, it seems they were "due" back in 2008. Keep moving the goalpost and nobody will ever score peace.
