Where dud you get this information? Back up your claim.
Look it up yourself. Bush was warned numerous times by both the CIA & FBI, & his response was,"okay, you've covered your ass now. He was warn only 5 days before the"attacks" actually happened. The FBI & CIA both warned him, yet you claim he had no warnings. Both agencies tracked those same terrorist for weeks informing the white house of the pending attacks. Even to the point that they also included airplane hijackings & all. Bush ignored all the warnings & y'all see the outcome. It's no way anyone couldn't stopped it! What are y'all talking about? All he had to do was raise the level of security at the airports, he did nothing! Now y'all want to act like y'all don't know this stuff. The man wasn't only incompetent, but dumb as the say is long. I'm willing to bet he came up with the no child left behind act, because his Daddy & grand Daddy pushed his retarded ass through school. I can't believe y'all are defending his incompetence. He was literally that empty chair on stage with Clint Eastwood!

I'm not blaming Obama for the attack. I blame Obama for just being Obama. We need a leader - not a reader.
He led us out of Bush's recession, out of Iraq, through the deaths of the top 10 Al Qaeda leaders, into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, stock markets breaking records, equal rights for woman in the work place as far as pay, universal healthcare, & plenty more. All with republican obstruction from day 1 of his presidency. Let me guess, you voted for Romney huh! Give NE list of Bush's accomplishments. There are none!

Supreme Court Declines Gun Law Case

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Monday that it would not weigh in on a major Second Amendment question that has divided the lower courts: May states bar or strictly limit the carrying of guns in public for self-defense?
The justices turned down a case concerning a New York State law that requires people seeking permits for carrying guns in public to demonstrate that they have a special need for self-protection. In urging the justices to hear the case, the National Rifle Association called the law “a de facto ban on carrying a handgun outside the home.”

War Zone at Mile 26:‘So Many People Without Legs’

BOSTON —...
“These runners just finished and they don’t have legs now,” said Roupen Bastajian, 35, a Rhode Island state trooper and former Marine.“So many of them. There are so many people without legs. It’s all blood. There’s blood everywhere. You got bones, fragments. It’s disgusting.”

WHO but a person with a "mental illness" would DO this?

Well congrats to all you white people who voted for obama in some misguided attempt at race relations. Now we know ever black person capablevof voting chose obama. When the president crys on tv every other week other countries take notice and feel more likely to pull off an attack on us. A strong president can send a message to all leaders. Mess with us and get vaporized. Obama sending message of hey brother lets share iced teas a play basketball.

He actually did make a comment to the press on the attack today. If we weren't living in the Land of Oz, it would have been more credible and easier to believe.
But "getting to the bottom" of anything by this administration has lost any meaning.

Obama's the racist, you're the idiot, and everyone who voted for this caramel clown is an embarrassment, not only to America but to our allies. The only people applauding Obama are Islamists and welfare junkies. Oh, and let's not forget butcher-shop abortionists and the women who go there.

The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.
"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

It's much more astonishing to me that the left is so astonished Obamacare is a disaster.
It will be this president's legacy.
We know that reading comprehension isn't your strong suit Carol and you have a penchant for picking points that would tend to validate your views so it's not surprising that you missed this little gem in the article you cited;
"Fiscal conservatives say it makes no sense for government to provide the same generous subsidies to people who can afford to pay at least some of the cost themselves. As a rule, taxpayers pay for 75 percent of Medicare's outpatient and prescription benefits. Even millionaires would still get a 10 percent subsidy on their premiums under Obama's plan. Technically, both programs are voluntary."
Are you carrying the liberal flag these days Carol?

Are stupid enough to believe that the yellow, orange, red, & whatever color system was implemented after the attacks? So before 9/11 America was operating with out national security huh! Well obviously because bush was incompetent, but we sure weren't supposed to be dumass. We were already being lied to about the outcome of the UN inspections. I remember. Those inspector never found shit no matter where they searched. Then Bush lied & said Saddam was moving the nukes around, but still never found them. All bullshit!

The disaster that's coming is already causing a lot of nightmares for democrats. It will go down in history as their and Obama's legacy.
Passing a 2700 page monstrosity without one republican on board, with the majority of Americans against it, and the democrats not even knowing what's in it? Seriously?
This is what liberals will defend to their last breath?
(Probably posted twice. Sorry.)
Let's go over this one more time Carol. The ACA is less radical than a plan proposed by Richard Nixon, essentially the same as one proposed by Robert Dole, built from a blueprint drawn by the Heritage Foundation and actually signed into law in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney.
But of course you prefer that Big Insurance could pick and choose who they cover and when someone had the audacity to get sick use every trick in the book to delay or deny coverage.

NBC - Virginia's restrictions on abortion could force abortion clinics to close and join a rapidly growing list of states making it more difficult for women to terminate pregnancies.
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday found that 52% of Americans believe abortion should be ILLEGAL with some or no exceptions compared with 45% who believe it should be LEGAL most or all of the time.

You must have forgotten my income is supplemental to our family income.
However, we are definitly in the middle class. Since we had to pay back the government in taxes, even if it was a modest amount, I imagine our taxes will be one of the first to go up when Obamacare hits the fan and the rest of us.
On January 1, everyone brought home less in their paychecks.
What happened, Lily? Please tell me Obama didn't lie to us about that too?
HEY STUPID! The 2% payroll tax holiday was never meant to be permanent and neither were the Bush tax cuts.

did not answer the only question I had about selective news from your side. I did not say it was just as bad. I was remarking about the fairness/corruption on your side when it comes to news.
As usual, another post goes right over your head, moron.
There was no selective coverage liar, I got the story from both USA Today and CNN. It was also covered by all of the major news outlets.

Selective Weasel!

CBS and MSNBC did NOT cover it, dumbass.

Zip, Nada, zilch.

You are an ignorant moron.

Go pass some gun control laws with your fascist agenda, in the meantime, Obama's Muslim Brotherhood pals wipe out people in an instant with bombs. You got your "leg up" as body parts were flying and an eight year old is dead. Hundreds maimed and injured in a split second, yet you fascists moron DemocRATS want to take guns & magazines from lifelong patriots.

The timing just highlights how misguided the extreme leftwing (that would be you and all DemocRATS) are.

You are an idiot, a poster boy for morons all over.
