Like 9-11.

Clinton had upgraded the CIA and FBI's anti-terror units. He created a massive stockpile of antidotes for terror agents like anthrax. Several terror attacks were foiled like the one against Los Angeles Airport and another aimed at the Israeli embassy in Washington.

He was gone for over six months when 9-11 struck.

And Bush was warned by Tenet of an impending terror attack six weeks in advance. Tenet's August 6, 2001 PDB even mentioned preparations for hijackings, which of course, is what happened.

And what does President Dumbazz do? Nothing.

And what did you pathetic crybabies do afterwards? Blamed an out-of-office Democrat as usual.

BUSH and THE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA LIED US INTO THE IRAQ WAR.

In 2002, Scott Ritter, a former UNSCOM weapons inspector heavily criticized the Bush administration and media outlets for using the testimony of alleged former Iraqi nuclear scientist Khidir Hamza, who defected from Iraq in 1994, as a rationale for invading Iraq;

We seized the entire records of the Iraqi Nuclear program, especially the administrative records. We got a name of everybody, where they worked, what they did, and the top of the list, Saddam's "Bombmaker" [which was the title of Hamza's book, and earned the nickname afterwards] was a man named Jafar Dhia Jafar, not Khidir Hamza, and if you go down the list of the senior administrative personnel you will not find Hamza's name in there. In fact, we didn't find his name at all. Because in 1990, he didn't work for the Iraqi nuclear program. He had no knowledge of it because he worked as a kickback specialist for Hussein Kamel in the Presidential Palace.

He goes into northern Iraq and meets up with Ahmad Chalabi. He walks in and says, I'm Saddam's "Bombmaker". So they call the CIA and they say, "We know who you are, you're not Saddam's 'Bombmaker', go sell your story to someone else." And he was released, he was rejected by all intelligence services at the time, he's a fraud.

And here we are, someone who the CIA knows is a fraud, the US Government knows is a fraud, is allowed to sit in front of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and give testimony as a expert witness. I got a problem with that, I got a problem with the American media, and I've told them over and over and over again that this man is a documentable fraud, a fake, and yet they allow him to go on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and testify as if he actually knows what he is talking about.

You're right about us liking it. Because what you call "liberal parasites" are people of all ethnic backgrounds too poor to afford medical care.

And we Democrats give a damn about them.

You heartless b@stards obviously don't.

BILL CLINTON IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR 911.

"It's the economy, stupid," was the buzzword that many pundits acknowledge catapulted Bill Clinton into the White House in 1992. During the Clinton years, the deficit plunged and the stock market soared. It was a time of peace and prosperity in America with the Monica Lewinsky affair providing a comic sideshow along the fodder for late-night TV Hosts. But while the economy roared and the latest Monica jokes made the rounds, the seeds of terror were blossoming around the globe. In 1993, Americans were horrified to see the bloodied corpse of a U.S. serviceman dragged through the streets of Mogadishu by a mob of rabid Somalis.

Then came 1998 and the lethal bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa. Still, the administration did little but lob off a few cruise missiles now and again. And the seeds of terror kept growing. The results of a special investigation - examined how a nation and an administration, through a combination of inactivity and massive failure in the intelligence community, were asleep at the switch during the Clinton years. And how, without warning, those seeds of terror reaped a bitter harvest on America's second and even bloodier day of infamy, September 11.

The Clinton administration repeatedly mishandled major opportunities to kill or capture super-terrorist Osama bin Laden, the man who declared war on America. On at least two occasions, foreign governments actually offered to hand him over on a silver platter - but the Clinton White House refused to accept him.

GOP: give billionaires a tax cut!

One guy with a thousand million dollars. Cut his taxes?

The billionaire already has every advantage, he made all that dough with tax rates as is.

So taxes were too high? Then how did the billionaires get rich? Too high taxes would preclude being able to get filthy rich!

But the DB GOP made tax cuts for the richest it's focal point.....(remember tax cuts for Richy create jobs)

REALLY? Then how did Bush lose millions of jobs AFTER MASSIVE TAX CUTS?

GOP = FRAUD.

Doctors have to pay over $100,000/year in malpractice insurance. Ask one next time you go in. Who pays for that? The people that see him for health care.
Recently Merck Pharm was sued because a few fat middle-aged smokers had heart attacks after taking Vioxx. They got a couple billion in a class action-- who pays? The people that buy drugs from Merck.
I put $700/month into a health savings account, about the same as I would pay in health insurance. In a year, I have over $8K. In ten years, that's almost $100K with modest investment growth. Since I've been doing it for 30 years, I can afford just about any procedure I need. And any money I don't use is passed down to my children. Try to do that with an insurance policy.
See, there are many solutions to problems if you take responsibility for yourself. But that's not the Liberal Way. You lefties like to blow your paycheck on bass boats and beer, then when something bad happens you want a corporation (or the ubiquitous Evil Rich Guy) to blame and a gubbermint program to make it all better.
I for one am getting damned tired of bailing out you parasites. Liberals are pathetic, I wish you would grow up.
1) Currently the poor have Medicaid.

So who is uninsured? The working poor that can't afford it & some by choice.

Obamacare will get the majority of these either insured or paying fines into the system.

Those making over 133% of the poverty line will have to pay part of their insurance.

And really, Isn't the yearly limit for a HSA is around $3100? & wouldn't that make you a liar?

And really, you plan no health problems for you or our family. One serious issue & you become one of the people you are b*tching about.

Dave is a moron.
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
1) Not all subprime mortgages were CRA loans.

2) CRA loams are typically long term standard mortgages

3) The percentage of all failed loans that were CRA is about the same percentage of all loans that were CRA.

4) Banks were never forced top issue bad loans.

5) Redlining was proven to be racist in a court of law.
