What a joke. It's like the Democrats want high unemployment and for everyone to live in caves like they do mentally.
Meanwhile, you have the Learjet Liberals like Al "Jazeera" Gore flying around and going back to his dump that is a 20 carbon footprint house.
Wonder how Tipper is doing?
You got that reversed . Republican lackeys of Big Business want high unemployment and recession because it puts downward pressure on wages of employees who worry more about keeping a job than safety and benefit issues. And if you can't keep wages down far enough then Republicans will pass bills to block minimum wage increases, eliminate overtime pay for employees, and block every jobs bill Obama has ever favored even republican job bills.

Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine[citation needed]. Blix said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq, with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world," would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances. "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility," Blix said[citation needed]. "There has to be solid evidence of everything, and if there is not evidence, or you can't find it, I simply say,'Sorry, I don't find any evidence,' and I cannot guarantee or recommend any confidence."[citation needed]
About Bush's "supposed" promise...
In March 2003, after UNMOVIC's efforts to verify Iraq's disarmament, Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine.
He said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world" would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances.
He went on to say, "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility."
George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein an ultimatum to leave power, the UN pulled out all the inspectors from Iraq and, days later, the invasion began.
Saddam had been given his last chance.
Let me redo this.

At various points over the past two years, IRS officials singled out for scrutiny not only groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names but also nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution, according to documents in an audit conducted by the agency’s inspector general.

Don't blame the Liberal Media if you feel asleep halfway through Obama's press conference on a slow news day.

Poor Aunt Bettie, taking cheap shots at anyone who dares to disagree with her. Not only are your granny bloomers in a wad, they've been wet since you think you have the President on the road to impeachment. Well time to change your underwear!! Word on the street is Republicans aren't getting much traction with their focus on Benghazi over the last week. Voters trust Hillary Clinton over House Republicans on the issue of Benghazi by a 49% to 39% margin and Clinton's 52% to 44% favorability rating is identical to what it was in late March. You can stop peeing in your bloomers. Aint' happening!!
Now, now, it was all in gest.

You think satirical political comedy is news but don't know when someone's really kidding around?

Last chance for what? Hussein was completely surrounded, he had no control over his own country's airspace--U S and British jets patrolled the skies at will, there was no need for an invasion--Hussein wasn't able to go anywhere or do anything.

2004....

Citing July Speech, I.R.S. Decides to Review N.A.A.C.P.

In an interview Thursday, Mr. Bond defended his remarks, saying they focused on policy, not politics.

"This is an attempt to silence the N.A.A.C.P. on the very eve of a presidential election," he said. "We are best known for registering and turning out large numbers of African-American voters. Clearly, someone in the I.R.S. doesn't want that to happen."

He added, "It's Orwellian to believe that criticism of the president is not allowed or that the president is somehow immune from criticism."

Karl Rove speaking on Fox Monday morning about what would have happened if the IRS had targeted liberals for scrutiny during the Bush administration:

We'd have every major liberal newspaper in America calling for investigation ending in impeachment. It'd be leading the evening news. We'd have have every group that had liberal or progressive tendencies demanding answers and marching on the White House. And leaders of Congress, Democrats in Congress, demanding to have answers. It'd be a nightmare at the Bush White House had this been done on our watch.

Poor Republicans. Always the victim of hypocritical liberals. Except:

Stepping up its probe of allegedly improper campaigning by churches, the Internal Revenue Service on Friday ordered a liberal Pasadena parish to turn over all the documents and e-mails it produced during the 2004 election year with references to political candidates.

All Saints Episcopal Church and its rector, the Rev. Ed Bacon, have until Sept. 29 to present the sermons, newsletters and electronic communications.

The IRS investigation was triggered by an antiwar sermon delivered by its former rector, the Rev. George F. Regas, at the church two days before the 2004 presidential election. The summons even requests utility bills to establish costs associated with hosting Regas' speech. Bacon was ordered to testify before IRS officials Oct. 11.

Maybe it's just me, but somehow I'm forgetting the part about where George W. Bush got impeached because the IRS investigated liberals under his watch. That doesn't mean we should ignore what happened under President Obama, but Rove's baseless hyperventilating is a reminder to keep things in perspective. Of course, with Darrell Issa in charge of the House Government Oversight committee, fat chance of that happening.

George W Bush majored in political science at Harvard and look how he turned out. So, did Robert Gates.
