<quoted text>Here you go. Sorry you only need 3 since there are more.
1. Bush started a war with a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11 just to show his dad he was a man. That war cost 4000 American soldiers lives, 33,000 wounded and an estimated $4 Trillion.
.
2. In 2003 Bush signed the American Dream Down Payment Act that he said HIS administration had come up with. That new Law changed 4 major items of home loans. No down payment required, no background checks, up to 150% of home value could be loaned and up to 5 years of deferred payments. This is the reason that in 2008 90% of all home loans defaulted on were LESS than 5 years old. This banking and Wall St home loan scam that the new Bush Law created was the downfall of the US economy.
.
3. Bush lowered the tax rates to the lowest point ever in US history. Lowered so much that America could no longer pay its Bills. Bush handed Obama the US credit card with the largest debt ever and only enough income to pay the reoccurring monthly bills but not the balance. That is why no matter who is President the debt will double every 10 years unless major changes are done.
1. 111 Democrats voted to support that war based on the same intel everyone had. They wanted you to believe they were left out of the loop and lied to. There's no way they were left out of the loop. No one in their right mind would believe that. In fact, they were the ones who lied to you.

The UN threatened "serious consequences" after the last chance resolution after giving Saddam more than enough time to move them.

2. Assistance with a downpayment "to those who qualify" is nowhere near the same as giving mortgage loans to anyone and everyone who could sign on the dotted line whether they could afford it or not.

Democrats aggressively resisted any oversight on Fannie and Freddie after warnings from both Bush and Bernacke of the impending crisis. The same Democrats who were on F&F's payroll.

3. Lowering of taxes after 9/11 was the one of the primary reasons the economy recovered so quickly.

Bush spent in 8 years - with the majority of Democrats approving the spending after an attack on our own soil and two wars and an improving economy until the housing market caused the bottom to fall out (see #2)- a mere fraction of what Obama has spent in just 4 years with very little, if anything, to show for it.

Obama told the American people and the rest of the world a few weeks ago he doesn't even think the deficit is a problem.

Do you think the deficit is a problem - since it's expected to reach $20 trillion by the time he leaves office?

Ward Churchill and you need to look at the source. Placing blame on anyone or anything but the source of those mass graves, mass genocide and chemical weapons used on women and children is both narrow-mindedly simplistic and disturbingly complacent.
The atrocities committed against women and children in Islamic countries should be enough for you bleeding heart liberals to sit up and take notice. But ideology is more important than human rights when it comes to preserving your anti-American propaganda.
Democrats and the UN knew Saddam had WMDs. Post 9/11, he became an imminent threat.
Maybe if Saddam had been left alone to unleash his biological and chemical weapons on us and the rest of the world, Mr. Churchill would have something else to write about.
Frankly, his kind of "intelligent short-sightedness" is more like just plain biased ignorance.
A question I haven't looked up. Did we ever find out where all that anthrax came from and who mailed it? I don't remember.

The Ostrich Effect: Fox News And Right-Wing Media Bury Their Heads (And Truth) In The Sand

It’s more difficult being a shill for ultra-conservative propaganda than you might think. On the surface it appears to be merely an exercise in fabricating false narratives and phony scandals. Any two-bit, dime-store, novelist can whip up a salacious melodrama in short order and disseminate it to a gullible flock of lemmings.

However, to be really good at shaping fantastical versions of unreality, you need to be alert and organized to prevent your plot lines from getting away and destroying the illusions you worked so hard to create.

One of the techniques that Fox News has perfected is to broadcast a slanderous allegation as widely as possible when it is no more than a wispy speculation. Then, after it is discovered that the whole affair was constructed from lies and innuendo, simply neglect to ever bring it up again.

This was expertly demonstrated recently when Fox News participated in blowing up a smear job aimed at Democratic Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey. The story sprung from the right-wing Internet rag, The Daily Caller, which happens to be run by Fox News flunky, Tucker Carlson. TheDC purported to have evidence that Menendez hired prostitutes in the Dominican Republic and ran several articles on the subject. Fox News and other right-wing media picked up the story and turned it into a mini-scandal that erupted in the closing days of Menendez’s reelection campaign.

However, in the past couple of weeks the story has disintegrated as the prostitutes were questioned by police and recanted their statements, even going so far as to confess that they were paid to make false statements incriminating Menendez. And last week the deceit escalated as the man on whom TheDC based its story changed his tune and told the Domincan district attorney that he too was paid – by TheDC – to find and coach the prostitutes.

In the wake of these revelations, Media Matters has scoured Fox News for any sign of a retraction, correction, or apology, or even just an acknowledgement of the new disclosures. But for some reason, the network that aired segments of this story twenty times has ignored it completely since it has been debunked.

This is nothing new for Fox. Here are some additional stories where they heavily hyped questionable reporting that reflected poorly on Democrats or anyone to the left of center, only to scuttle the matter when it backfired on them:....

Living in the Fox bubble must be an endlessly painful experience. In case after case they are jolted by news that is at odds with the fragile pseudo-reality that cloaks them. But the most intriguing question has got to be: When will they cast it off? How many times must they get burned before they learn?

A Little Matter of Genocide: Holocaust And Denial In The Americas 1492 To The Present (1997) is a book written by Ward Churchill. A Little Matter of Genocide surveys ethnic cleansing from 1492 to the present. Churchill compares the treatment of North American Indians to historical instances of genocide by communists in Cambodia, Turks against Armenians, and Europeans against the Gypsies, as well as Nazis against the Poles and Jews.

Only an idiot cleans any weapon loaded. You always assume the weapon is loaded even if you just unloaded it. That is the first thing taught to everyone. Well obviously not everyone. Just like you never put your finger on the trigger until you are actually are ready to fire.

For a myriad of reasons; if the patient seems distressed or suicidal, if the doctor asks if he/she may be thinking of hurting himself or others, or if he has a weapon. Talking to children about weapons and if there are weapons readily available in the home, is another reason. You are the one who is nuts. More people die of self inflicted gunshots than murder. Most suicides by teens are with the family gun.

Not only where were/are the WMDs, but if he supposedly moved them, what was our reason for invading? Why didn't Saddam even try & fight back using those WMDs? You say he used them on his own people, yet he never fired a single 1 at America & the other invaders! Why was America at war with the same people they were supposed to be liberating! Why was Saddam's first move to set ablaze all the oil fields if the war was never really over oil? See if they can answer those questions!
