Then stop blaming ALL potus's-including Bush, for Sociopathic/evil people's actions, stop hating America, and blame those who actually should be blamed!

Then, elect people that will at least ADMIT that such is REALITY, rather than lie to the public about it-and those willing to actually WORK to reform BAD policies that need reformed!
Instead of biotching and whining and LAME-(no)brainedly blame gaming like flipping ten year olds.
dems didn't blame bush for his failures in saving us from 911, his actions did, what did he do to prevent it when he was warned we were going to be attacked? NADA, ZERO.

I thought that the French helped us during the American Revolution along with Poles and many others and many other entities loaned us funds. You seem to be lost and locked into a fetal position with your tiny appendage jammed into your mouth, Dood.
HEY STUPID! There's a huge difference between providing financial and logistical aid and the presence of individuals like Lafayette, Kosciusko and Pulaski to train our troops and sending in our armed forces invade a country. The French fleet did blockade the English at Yorktown but they never sent in ground troops in large numbers.
You're an idiot!

As much as I supported Bush's decision to take down Saddam and was happy the surge finally put an end to the unexpected resistance, I would have loved to know what the UN's "serious consequences" were after the supposed "final" resolution.
Unexpected resistance Carol? Sure when foreign troops invade your country, destroy your infrastructure, kill and torture your citizens there's not going to be any resistance at all is there?
Are you really that stupid? Yes you are!

NRA, gun dealers await new surge of gun sales in wake of Boston shootout

NRA member Timothy Campbell of Dallas, Texas, says he has called Boston and MIT police departments over a dozen times since the murder of an MIT police officer last Thursday, but neither department has been willing to release the exact brands and models of guns used. While many cite fears that guns like the ones used in acts of terrorism or mass murder will be targeted for stricter regulation or even banning by the government, Campbell, an avid gun collector, says he recognizes that the odds that access to such weapons would be restricted are "essentially zero," he still is eager to purchase the guns as soon as the Tsarnaev weapons are identified. "I don't really know why I want to own them so bad," he said during an interview conducted this morning. "I guess it's probably a penis thing."

An executive with a prominent gun manufacturer said that having one of a company's guns used in an incident of mass murder or terrorism can represent a substantial boon to profits. The executive, who wished his identity and the name of his company to remain anonymous, noted that "the more vicious the crime, the bigger the surge in resulting sales is. When one of our guns was used in the murders at Sandy Hook, our dealers couldn't keep them on the shelves afterwards. We had to add another shift, we were selling so many."

A Boston-area Glock dealer who also wished to remain anonymous agreed. "Having one of our guns used in the shooting of an actual congressperson was probably the best advertisement we ever had. The sales were phenomenal afterwards." He says that while the company urged him to tell prospective buyers that the gun could likely face stricter regulation in the wake of the shooting, "It was nonsense, but I found I didn't even have to. Sure, everybody says those things, but the truth is people just want to own a gun that they know has become infamous. It makes them feel dangerous themselves, and that's what we're in the business of selling."

The Conservative Paranoid Mind

There’s a common thread linking conservatives’ positions on gun control, immigration, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: the constant need to stoke fear.

Conservatism, I fear (so to speak), can never be cleansed of this need to instill fear. Whether it’s of black people or of street thugs or of immigrants or of terrorists or of jackbooted government agents, it’s how the conservative mind works. I don’t even think it’s always cynical and manipulative; conservatives often do see enemies under every bed. But that doesn’t mean they’re there, and it most definitely doesn’t mean the rest of us ought to make law and policy based on their nightmares.

What’s the Difference Between McVeigh and Tsarnaev?

The federal government managed to hunt down, arrest, charge, try, convict and execute Timothy McVeigh without junking due process.

When Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and shot dead a federal judge and a 9-year-old, grandstanding lawmakers did not demand that he be taken into military custody. Nor did they make that demand when James Holmes was arrested for killing 12 people and wounding 70 others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater.

But now Senator Lindsey Graham is calling for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be classified as an enemy combatant and “held and questioned under the law of war,” without a lawyer.

What’s the difference? The Boston Marathon bombings are closer to the colloquial and legal definitions of terrorism than the Aurora shooting, but not the Oklahoma bombing, or the Arizona attack.

The real difference is that Mr. Tsarnaev is a Muslim, and the United States has since the 9/11 terrorist attacks constructed a separate and profoundly unequal system of detention and punishment that essentially applies only to Muslims.

Mr. Graham and others who are demanding that prosecutors treat Mr. Tsarnaev differently from Mr. McVeigh are not even trying very hard to disguise the fact that they’re drawing distinctions based on religion and ethnicity.

Yes, the moron, like you, dishes out more moronic bullshit than anyone on the thread. Usually you liberals are completely devoid of honesty, integrity, loyalty, sincerity and many good qualities.

Why are you being honest, plastic liberal?

Let's guess what you will post today. I'll go out on a limb and say the Iraq War and more about Bush! You are a very creative person.

Americans don’t believe in shredding Constitution to fight terror

Defending the civil liberties of suspected terrorists is generally not considered a popular position. And yet, in a bit of a surprise, a new poll released today finds that a plurality worries more about government trampling constitutional rights while battling terrorism than it does about government not doing enough to fight it. From the Post:

Which worries you more: that the government will not go far enough to investigate terrorism because of concerns about constitutional rights, or that it will go too far in compromising constitutional rights in order to investigate terrorism?

Will not go far enough: 41

Will go too far: 48

Interestingly, despite the fact that the push for Tsarnaev to be held as an enemy combatant is coming from GOP officials, Republican respondents to the poll are even more strongly tilted towards worrying about government compromising constitutional rights, by 56-34. Conservatives tilt this way by 46-41. Democrats also agree by 48-43.

On top of this, the poll was taken from April 17-18 — well after the bombings had taken place, on April 15th.

So why do the senators — whose call was echoed by Massachusetts senatorial candidate Gabriel Gomez — persist? Some candidates seem to feel that asserting a manly contempt for defendants’ rights is a winning political stance. But it’s also hard to avoid the impression that McCain, Graham, and some other hawks are rehashing the battles of the Bush era, in search of vindication. During the recent confirmation hearings for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, McCain and Graham seemed most concerned about preventing a one-time Iraq war critic from heading the Pentagon, as if elevating him to the job would discredit a war that both senators vigorously supported.

You just proved you are a liar and an idiot! We have video recordings of Democrats contradicting what you just said, numbnuts. In the video (link provided), there is Bill Clinton as president in 1998 warning us about Saddam/Iraq and WMD (including NUCLEAR!!!!) followed by John Kerry in 2002, and several other DemocRATS.

Get a flocking clue, Hitler Youth Boy. All you do is propagandize and lie, zero.



You, being a brain dead zombie buy into the Democrats politicization of that war (second link - below). It's OK to make an argument we should have never gone, but then you would need to blame Democrats as much as Republicans, which a Jim Jones moron like you wouldn't do! All you DemocRATS are just extreme leftwing idiots nowadays.
