The only people who think we went there for oil are idiots like you. First, you bitch and moan that it was a shameful reason to invade, now you cry because we didn't take the oil. You're so fcuking batty you can't see straight.
I believed I called it "criminally STUPID." Now, being arrogantly wrong in every respect for eight years may not be the same as being totally stupid...try Dick and Dumbya for war crimes in Texas, where they have no problem with executing the retarded. "MR. RUSSERT: Every analysis said this war itself would cost about $80 billion, recovery of Baghdad, perhaps of Iraq, about $10 billion per year. We should expect as American citizens that this would cost at least $100 billion for a two-year involvement.

VICE PRES. CHENEY: I can’t say that, Tim. There are estimates out there. It’s important, though, to recognize that we’ve got a different set of circumstances than we’ve had in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan you’ve got a nation without significant resources. In Iraq you’ve got a nation that’s got the second-largest oil reserves in the world, second only to Saudi Arabia. It will generate billions of dollars a year in cash flow if they get back to their production of roughly three million barrels of oil a day, in the relatively near future. And that flow of resources, obviously, belongs to the Iraqi people, needs to be put to use by the Iraqi people for the Iraqi people and that will be one of our major objectives.

But the point is this is not a nation without resources, and when it comes time to rebuild and to make the kinds of investments that are going to be required to give them a shot at achieving a truly representative government, a successful government, a government that can defend itself and protect its territorial integrity and look to the interests of its people, Iraq starts with significant advantages. It’s got a well- trained middle class, a highly literate work force, a high degree of technical sophistication. This is a country that I think, but for the rule of Saddam Hussein and his brutality and his diversion of the nation’s resources and his pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, can be one of the leading, perhaps the leading state in that part of the world in terms of developing a modern state and the kind of lifestyle that its people are entitled to."

South Carolina's youngest state representative, 24-year-old Joshua Putnam, recently proposed a bill that would ban most health care providers from asking whether their patients own guns. Its purpose is to fend off a nonexistent Obama plan to register all gun owners and possibly take away their weapons. "We don't want the federal government to come down and hold any Medicaid or Medicare dollars over our heads if doctors don't give up information about their patient's guns," says Putnam. "We want to protect physicians and we want to protect the citizens."

“The GOP Still Won’t Own Up To Its Real Problem With Voters.” This headline of Joshua Green’s smart piece for Bloomberg Businessweek on the Republican Party autopsy of its failed 2012 presidential effort nails it. Actually, Green points to two very real problems on which the GOP remains steadfastly mute.

One problem was the Republican Party’s vast effort to disenfranchise African American voters (and the young, I might add). The other was numerous GOP figures’ perpetuation of the racist “birther” lie against President Obama without so much as a corrective “Oh, no you don’t” from the party establishment. On this latter point, Green wrote,“I’ll leave it to those better qualified than I am to say precisely what effect this had on minorities’ view of the GOP….”

Considering I’m African American and have hammered the Republican Party establishment for its complicity in furthering the delegitimizing lie that Obama wasn’t born in this country (and thus occupying the Oval Office illegally), let me talk about the effect this had.

Blacks hated it — and continue to hate it.

O'Reilly said that while he wished Obama would live more like Pope Francis did as a cardinal in Argentina, the president is "entitled to protection, convenience and comfort as he runs the nation."

O'Reilly also pointed out that there's no dog walker.

It's actually an idiom in the English language meaning in an argument or a case, to have no support thinking you're in the right.
Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and Ted Kennedy along with the majority of democrats in both the House and Senate supported Bush. They knew Saddam had WMDs even before 9/11 and were privy to the same intelligence.
40 countries stood behind Bush.
So when it comes to blaming just Bush, you have no leg to stand on.
Oopsie, I almost missed dumb carol being dumb again...I said it was a cliche: a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality and has, therefore, lost meaning. Keep quoting Faux if you want to sound dumber by the day. BTW, did you know your pasty-faced canned ham of a crush is free now? His younger wife dumped him for a better ride and took the kids along...people like you, him, and Rush just never learn that money isn't everything...

Being challenged in life is your inevitable stupid NJ raider, you a dumb down democrat, a deranged moron, and remaining on an urban preserve with your hand-out was not an option.

A pretty face is nothing if you have an ugly political heart. The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with hate, ignorance and racism.
