In 1974, as an elder statesman of the party, Goldwater successfully urged President Richard Nixon to resign when evidence of a cover-up in the Watergate scandal became overwhelming and impeachment was imminent. By the 1980s, the increasing influence of the Christian right on the Republican Party so conflicted with Goldwater's views that he became a vocal opponent of the religious right on issues such as abortion, gay rights and the role of religion in public life.

Charts: Bush Lowballed Us on Iraq by $6 Trillion

—By Tasneem Raja

| Tue Mar. 19, 2013 3:00 AM PDT

Ten years later, the Bush administration's projected price tag for the war in Iraq seems downright cute. According to the first-ever comprehensive count of the true toll of the combined wars, the estimate the administration used to sell the invasion in 2003 was about 100 times too low.

So what did that $6 trillion get us, exactly? Since we borrowed to pay for much of the war, we're facing nearing $4 trillion in cumulative interest between now and 2053, according to the 30 researchers who worked on the Costs of War report for Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies.

To date, according to the report, medical and disability claims of U.S. war veterans of Iraq have reached $84 billion; ongoing care for wounded Iraq war vets and their families is expected to require nearly $500 billion more over the next several decades. Homeland Security got $245 billion in additional funding thanks to increased threats of terror—real, imagined, and staged—over the last ten years. On-the-ground operations alone ended up being 16 times more expensive than the Bush cabinet's original estimate for the entire enterprise.

I tried to find from what part of the world the name comes from. There is no nationality from what I can tell. He had planned this attack. He did not register from spring semester. They were going to throw him out of the dorm. The prospect that this was a terrorist attack can not be ruled out.

No, I don't think they are topix employees. It's probably a couple of people using multiple screen names. I think one is a writer and this may be an outlet for her (at our expense)

Of Course not, Mr Chicken Little, like you are, run around predicting stock market crashes on a weekly basis. Since the market has peaks & lows, eventually there will be a significant loss & you will claim victory.
How sad it must be for you right whiners. Cheering everyday for a economic disaster.

"OMG OMG Obama is take our bank accounts just like in Greece"
"OMG OMG Obama is taking our guns"
"OMG OMG OMG " Obama is stealing our money"
Do you morons ever look at this crap you post & realize what assh*les you are?
You f*cking idiots said noting for 8 years while your buddies wearing the big red "R" nearly killed this country & slaughtered our soldiers.
You f*cking idiots, want to put the exact same people in charge that did this under Bush.
Is there a limit to your inane stupidity?

Yellowcake Uranium Found In Iraq, Bush Was Right! Well, Not So Much

This article from the AP was posted yesterday, reporting the sale and transport of 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium from Iraq to Canada. Some of the leading right wing blogs were quick to hail the find as a significant victory for the Bush administration and proof of Saddam's WMD program, but as Daniel De Groot at Open Left Points out, their celebrations may be a bit premature, if not dishonest:

I noted last night that a supply of uranium from Iraq had been successfully moved to Montreal in secrecy.

If you check into this, you'll quickly find that the uranium a) was not weapons grade and b) was well known to the UN and IAEA and was being stored legally by Saddam's government. It was legally in Iraq according to international law.

I wondered if the right wing echo chamber would use this as "proof" that the WMD claims were true after all. I got even better than I hoped, as not only do they use it that way, but they reveal how dishonest they are by the way they have done this.

Top recommended post at Redstate:

Yellowcake uranium found in Iraq, Saddam's legacy, Bush was right!

Well...not so much.
