Put federal marshalls on flights. Tenet's August 6, 2001 PDB mentioned FBI sources which described preparations for hijackings. The source was likely the agents who were tipped off about the Arab students learning to fly, but not land.<quoted text>
1.well what would you suggest that Bush should have done with the warning?
Libby did no jail time and Bush immediately commuted the criminal part of his sentence. Some reporter did a short stint. I think that's about it. Please don't tell me this was adequate punishment.2.People went prison for outing the agent.
Bush inherited a healthy budget and not only wrecked it, but the economy as well. No, Obama didn't borrow any plays out your playbook. He has had to react to a bad situation.3.Obama sure took a page out of the Bush play book in regards to national debt....but that ok..RIGHT?
Bush and Cheney pushed those accusations to the hilt, but no such violations were revealed once Iraq was occupied.4.Iraq was not in compliance with its surrender agreement.
Oh, come on. Republicans became big spenders starting with Reagan.5.Yes it was our fault....because we let these leader govern
with a liberal progressive agenda.
The crash was brought about by a real estate bubble and credit default swaps. The real estate bubbble was fueled by bad lending policies of the banks, which were voluntary, not forced.6. job losses was not our fault...just result of a crashed economy, brought on by poor liberal policy.
The Republican Party controlled Congress and the White House during this period and did nothing to address these issues.
History suggests otherwise. FDR took us out of the Great Depression. There was a second dip in unemployment from 1938 to 1941 caused by a cutback in government spending. But this eased by late 1941 and unemployment dropped down to 10%. WW II took care of the rest.7. Think you may want to take a look at the time line when
these lending practices were started. Face it liberal progressive policies have screwed everything up, and voters will start to understand that.
The administration of John Kennedy saw prosperous times.
Contrary to GOP beliefs, it was Paul Volcker who created the recession during the second half of Carter's tenure. In an effort to knock down inflation, Volcker raised the prime rate to something around 20%. It eventually reduced inflation, but its immediate impact was that corporations decided not to borrow and cut back their work forces. You know the rest.
There was an economic boom during the Clinton years, although he did leave office with a moderate recession.
As far as Reagan goes, much of the boom he achieved came from military spending and large annual deficits. It was not sustainable.
