A true Republican you are, meaning you play fast and loose with history.
To begin, there were terror attacks under Reagan such as the Achille Lauro incident and Pan Am bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland.
The first atttack on the Twin Towers occurred in February, 1993 just five weeks into Clinton's first term.
Using your logic, that means Reagan and GHW Bush were responsible.
Clinton had no advance knowledge of 9-11, nor of the attacks on the African embassies or USS Cole. I might add, the Navy was fully aware of the risks in having the Cole where it was.
Bush was warned by Tenet five weeks before 9-11 struck and did nothing. Did Clinton freeze Bush's brain? Something must have.
<quoted text>
Strictly your opinion. I would argue Bush's two unfinished wars, doubling of the national debt and the Republican Party's failure to rein in the banks created a point of no return.
The ObamaCare tax fraud will be quite a burden on Doctors,nurses,and retired people on the DEATH PANEL!

This was a little scary on Huckabee tonight!Obama wants to control insurance companies too!This is going to be a ROUGH one for Employers!

$17 Trillion in debt,unemployment,crime,food cost,fuel prices,banks,WELFARE,illegals etc.will bankrupt our GREAT COUNTRY THAT WAS BUILT ON CAPITALISM!

I am very sorry for you Blacks,and the indoctrinated White college kids that were bamboozled by the Muslim appeaser Obama and the Liberal media!

Where is my FREE Obama phone?

Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck: Champions of Gay Rights?

O'Reilly continues to come under attack from "pro-family" groups and moralizing conservative bloggers, but he's been getting a lot of support for his position from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who has promoted marriage equality and has taken on anti-gay advocates such as Maggie Gallagher, founder of the National Organization for Marriage. Suddenly, there's actually discussion and debate about gay marriage on Fox News -- with real live conservatives supporting it -- and it looks like these two will be leading that debate.

None of this is to let O'Reilly off the hook for his idiotic and ugly positions of the past on the issue (and surely he'll be attacking gay activists for one thing or another in short order), nor is it to negate the fact that O'Reilly is quite cognizant of keeping his ratings high as he sees support for gay marriage rise rapidly in the polls. But if the debate over marriage equality now needs to move into the heart of the Fox News audience, it's certainly not a bad thing to have O'Reilly as the guy taking on the anti-equality crowd.

<quoted text>Your point? Even if it were the Christian Right Network, the words are coming from the Dr. Nicholas Cummings, the former APA president. You know, he also was the one who led the charge to have homosexuality removed as a mental disorder. If he is saying that the APA stance against reparative therapy is political and not scientific, then he also knows that the removal of homosexuality was not scientific.
He's a fkn bonehead like you, your raider pal, and the other right wing mutts who spend their days and nights dragging nonsense from one anon forum to another.

Cummings is nearly 90, was head of the APA for one year almost a quarter century ago and has always believed that gays can change.

Bush was warned of what? Tell us, exactly what the warning was , what would happen and where?
Tell us where in our history the bad guys were willing to die ?
Towards the end of his administration, Clinton formed a bipartisan commission to determine our country's vulnerability to terrorist attack. They were to report to the new President.

They met for months. In their report, they indicated many potential problems & airport security was one of their important issues.

So after Bush was elected, they went to present & discuss their report with Bush.

Bush refused to meet with them.

Instead, he decided to form his own committee. A committee of two.

Dick Cheney & his CAMPAIGN MANAGER.

Their first meting was set for October of 2001.

Wo knows if that report would have been taken seriously by Bush. All it would have taken was a little more airport security.

Where was Bush - how may days vacation did he take between Jan 21st & Sept 11th?

So when you right whiners pretend Bush had no warnings, he had plenty. He just chose to ignore them.

Is he the only one allowed to take exemptions, tax breaks, etc.?
I have a suggestion, Leadass Lou, before you post about someone paying federal income, at least learn how the system actually works.

One deduction Obama took was 25% of his income to charity.

Obama to Hand Mic to Newtown Victim's Mom for Weekly Radio Address [Exploitative Stunt]
WEEKLY STANDARD ^| 4/12/13

Posted on Friday, April 12, 2013 3:02:39 PM by SoFloFreeper

This week's presidential radio address will be delivered by the mother of a victim of the Newtown massacre, the AP reports.

"The White House says the mother of a Newtown shooting victim will deliver the weekly presidential radio and Internet address," reports the AP.

"President Barack Obama typically gives the talk, focusing on a topic that's in the news or a policy the White House is pushing.

"This week, Obama has asked Francine Wheeler to deliver the address instead. Wheeler and her husband, David, lost their 6-year-old son Ben in the December schoolhouse shooting in Newtown, Conn."
##########
Agents involved in Operation Fast and Furious lost track of some of weapons. Two guns were later found at the scene of the killing of a U.S. border patrol agent, Brian Terry.

In a statement issue by their attorney, Terry's parents condemned the Obama administration for invoking executive privilege.

"Our son, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, was killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department gun trafficking investigation," said Josephine Terry and Kent Terry Sr. "For more than 18 months we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability."Obama claims executive privilege; Holder held in contempt/http://content.usatod ay.com/communities/theoval/pos t/2012/06/obama-team-fast-and- furious-documents-are-privileg ed/1#.UWqaR8q_28A"This week, Obama has asked Francine Wheeler to deliver the address instead.

Everyone needs to pay their fair share when it comes to taxes, right Socialist/Democrat Zombies?

Of course that excludes Obama himself who said this. He can invoke the Democrat Hypocrite Rule, pay only 18%.

Biden invoked the cheap Democrat rule, giving only his underwear to charity, but not forgetting to deduct it.

Aren't Socialists great?

Obviously you don't have a college education Dupont. Aphelion was explaining the way it is throughout the world job markets, not just in his world. Maybe you should look up words before trying to use them.
If you libtards and your parents weren't lazy while you were growing up, you would get the education and/or skills to make a good living so you would not need to have a job that start out for work before the sun comes up.
We need people like you too so the menial tasks can be performed so nobody is knocking what people like you do, but on the other hand, you should not expect to be paid the same as someone else who is smarter.
This country affords the opportunity for low income people to "move on up" with educational grants and financial aid. As a matter of fact, people like me pay/paid fill price for college to the tune of $50,000 a year to subsidize people like you and your needy. You get a "leg up" already.
Why you think all through life, others should suffer financially due to your issues demonstrates you are a mooch. You "get it" alright, freeloader.
Do yourself a favor though. Get a dictionary.
You don't know crap about me or my family imbecile. My father worked his fingers to the bone to provide for his family and to send my brothers and me to college. He was able to do that because he was paid a living wage and had a union to back him up. Yes I do have a college education as do my three brothers.
You're assumption that I work at some kind of menial labor because I'm up early is just plain ignorant. I like being up early.
No one said everyone has to be paid the same moron, I don't expect to be paid the same as the executives in the front office but I do expect a fair return on what I do.
The key to a thriving economy is workers getting paid enough so that they have sufficient to go out and buy products and services beyond bare needs. Henry Ford realized that his employees couldn't afford to buy the cars they were building so he raised their pay so they could.
Aphelion is touting an Ayn Randian system where the ultra wealthy make all the money and the rest of us are just wage slaves. Such a system would be doomed because the upper 1% would be unable sufficiently stimulate the economy.

According to the GAO, the recession began in December, 2007 marked by three straight quarters of negative growth.
Which means for your argument to hold up, the Democrats would have had to have exerted a strong negative effect by early March, 2007. So please show us what legislation they passed which did this.
The Senate in January, 2007 consisted of 49 Democrats, 49 Republicans and 2 Independents. The Democrat majority was based on those two Independents lining up with them. So it was a weak majority, indeed.
In summary, you have us believe the Republicans lacked the ability to filibuster any bill to death in the Senate they didn't like.
Or that Bush could not have vetoed any bill he didn't like, given that Democrats lacked the 67 Senate votes necessary to override him.
With that, your case is dead and buried.
Don't forget the RINOs.

Lou, of all people, TSM has shown me the light. Or perhaps, better put, shown me the final straw which broke the camel's back.
That our Congress would make themselves exempt from insider trading laws is incredible. The passage of the Patriot Act under Bush and the National Defense Authorization Act under Obama... the draconian anti-drug statutes which have begun to turn us into a police state... anti-gun laws in defiance of the 2nd Amendment... the GOP's endless support of big business crooks... the Democrat's failure to rein in Medicare... both party's failure to rein in spending... our hideous foreign policy... failure to rein in the CIA...
Lou, I've had it with the two of them. They've both betrayed us.
From here on out, I vote third party.
