He was so stupid he didn't know the President just can't go around the country killing people whenever he wants.
And this is the rabid right's pick to be President?

Conservative Policy Wonks Criticize Paul Ryan’s Budget

The criticisms reveal a divide between conservative thinkers, who are hungry for policy innovation in the Republican Party, and its top policy guru, who remains wedded to a set of ideas that served his party badly in the 2012 elections.

NYC recently joined the other meddlers when the City Council overrode Bloomberg's veto and passed this ridiculous law that will be a bonus for trial lawyers and the litigation happy while handicapping businesses with more stupid regulations.

'It’s now illegal to discriminate against the unemployed in New York

By Alex Moore

On Wednesday New York City approved a new law making it illegal to discriminate against the unemployed in the hiring process, marking the most aggressive advocacy measure for the unemployed since the economy collapsed in 2007.

Much like anti-discrimination laws meant to protect women and minorities in hiring, the new law makes it illegal for employers to set a preference against currently unemployed applicants. The new law goes further than measures already in place elsewhere in the country that bar employers from stipulating in job listings that applicants must be currently employed. New York’s new law will actually let applicants sue prospective employers if they believe they were overlooked simply because they’re unemployed.

The city passed the law over Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s objections. Bloomberg, who tried to veto the measure, believes the free market should determine hiring practices and that it’s not up for the government to regulate.'

Yes, Hillary did have a base of morons and lost to Obama. The leftwing lamestream media skewered her unfairly. The Rolling Stone Magazine portrayed her as a redneck, having a picture of her in the back of a red pickup truck with a pack of cigarettes rolled up in her sleeve and a flask in her back pocket.

The leftwing media really did the country a disservice by colluding with Obama and not telling the American people the truth, but that's what the far left fascist movement does to keep ignorant morons that can't think for themselves like you in their camp.

Americans missed the opportunity to have someone in charge when they re-elected The Empty Suit this past November. Amnesty for criminals will ensure Obama's vision for this country's future: a non-superpower entitlement state resembling Zimbabwe with an economy like Greece and MexiBonics as the official language.

On Tuesday, at this 10th anniversary of the American Invasion of Iraq, we would do well to remind ourselves about some painful facts.[...][T]he leaders of the Bush administration were intent on invading from the beginning of their time in the White House. When the 9-11 attacks occurred, Bush cabinet members immediately discussed how that tragedy could be used to justify an invasion.

Bush himself asked me to try to pin the blame for 9-11 on Iraq.

Exactly 10 years ago the American invasion of Iraq commenced, launching one of military history's most egregious strategic non sequiturs. Not since Napoleon Bonaparte's ill-fated expedition to Egypt and Syria (1798-1801)-- from which he ultimately fled, losing an army and a fleet -- has the world seen a great power so humbled in the pursuit of illusory goals. Napoleon's dream was to use his incomparable army to spread French revolutionary and democratic ideals across a key portion of the Muslim world. But, as historian Lynn Montross once noted, "The masses were too fatalistic to be stirred by promises of a liberty they neither understood nor trusted."

The grand American goal in the Middle East, pursued some two centuries after Napoleon but with nearly the same idea in mind that had motivated him, foundered for similar reasons. The military occupation of Iraq, predictably, sparked a general uprising. But whereas Lord Nelson's great victory at Aboukir Bay forced an end to the French campaign, no such dramatic intervention drove American forces out. So they stayed, at a cost of over a trillion dollars, tens of thousands of soldiers' lives lost or shattered, and with the mounting Iraqi death toll rising well above 100,000. A debacle.

five years ago today.....

Cheney: On the security front, I think there’s a general consensus that we’ve made major progress, that the surge has worked. That’s been a major success.

Martha Raddatz: Two-third of Americans say it’s not worth fighting.

Cheney: So?

Martha Raddatz: So? You don’t care what the American people think?

Cheney: No.

Now, with the GOP in a moment of crisis and struggling to find a direction, condemnation of the war flows quickly and easily out of the mouths of movement leaders.

"It didn't work, ok?" veteran conservative activist Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform, said in an interview. "I'm waiting for the architects of those policies to get up and say it didn't work, but it's tough to expect that because they never articulated what the hell they were doing."

"It's taken away the Republican party's historic advantage on foreign policy that dates back at least to the beginning of the Cold War," he said.

Conservatives also feel that Bush's response to 9/11 reduced the GOP's other advantage over Democrats, as the party of fiscal responsibility and limited government. The size of government grew dramatically after the attacks, as Bush created the Department of Homeland Security and opened up the government check book to an army of defense contractors. It was the biggest expansion of the federal budget since the New Deal.

"The Bush administration, whenever it saw a crisis, increased the size of government," Norquist said.

Too bad The Ice Man didn't take that attitude when he wanted to strike Iran's nuclear facilities back in the Spring/Summer of '06 and President Bush said NO.
