Of course, Bush wanted to kill Osama. Why do you think we bombed the heck out of Afghanistan immediately following 9/11 and then bombed the heck out of the mountains where he thought Osama was hiding?
When we lost track of Osama and had reason to believe he was dead inside one of those mountains, there were much bigger fish to fry and Bush concentrated on the bigger fish at that point.
It would have been distracting if the American public were led to believe Osama was the only mastermind of 9/11 and there weren't others just as dangerous, if not more so, in the al Qaeda ranks.
A lot of them were wiped out or captured in Iraq when they scurried over there to claim Iraq the frontlines.
This president would have ignored all other threats and all other al Qaeda ring leaders believing Osama was the brass ring when he wasn't anymore.
Honesty isn't this president's strong suit. Looking good and taking all the credit for someone else's tough decisions is.
OBL was the face of terrorism__the enmy of Merica needs a face, or at least that's what Cheney had trained W to believe.

Cheney could work W like a puppet, knew just how to massage and which words to use.

Hah, honesty is not your strong point babe.

Hey nutcase option,
So your president murders americans and their 16 yr old innocent kids abroad with drones, eh?
Yeah, thought your propoganda media would not tell you.
Stay tuned commie punk.
Waxman has excluded NBC/MSNBC from the left wing media conspiracy.

Does that mean we can now cite them for facts?

Who does the oil belong to?
That's a whole 'nother topic.

Alaska makes oil companies companies pay Alaskans for the resources they took out of the ground. It's called royalty payments.

Yet the oil companies still made tremendous profits!!

Palin was all for it, too! So it should be part of the TP plank!!

The oil and ng belongs to all Americans, not oil companies.

They should be allowed to drill for it and sell it, but just as in Alaska, we the people should get a share of the money.

But the Rclowns don't even want to take away big oil's tax breaks and subsidies, much less make them pay royalties to Americans.

That reminds me of a Gahan Wilson cartoon I saw googling something else. It showed wolves howling at a moon and pondering the futility of their raucous actions. I suspected Wilson intended irony in the tone.

Maybe I credited him too much wit?

BTW, I'm no fan of any video games.

But our Military uses them to train people with.

I'd be happy to see them banned.

But video games don't shoot people.

Guns shoot people.

Like the punk in TX, who killed the Navy Seal just to steal his truck.

Or the redneck who killed the school bus dfriver and took a child hostage.

Crazy people and guns are a deadly combination.

And we've too many of both in this nation.

....Overall, if you believe fiscal conservatism is right and is best for everyone and we still aren’t winning, then I believe there are only two possibilities: People are too dumb to get it or we’re too dumb to say it in a way that is comprehensible. Since I believe we’re right and that people aren’t inherently stupid, I must opt for the latter....

Since you have all the answers, answer this question:

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

All you have to do is identify a simple source of money to answer that question.

The Post Office is required by the Constitution. DUH

Obamacare was found to be Constitutional by the Conservative Supreme Court.

You lose again.

What the f*ck is the GD difference if Exxon pays $1 billion in taxes & gets a check for $200 million or if they have $800 million tax bill because they got a 200 million tax break.
Joe Flacco won a Corvette for being Super Bowl MVP. If he accepts and keeps the car he will owe about $27k in taxes. If he accepts the car and donates the car to charity, he will still owe $6K in taxes. The only way to escape the IRS is to turn down the gift.

Once again, for the really, really slow (stupid) people in the class, if you can't remember this please write it down.

The Treasury isn't a source of money. It is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
To say "debt of the treasury" you are referencing either money that has already been spent and doesn't exist anymore, or additional debt to be incurred by accepting money from some source of money.
To answer the question, you actually have to identify a source of money.

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