Bush declared that countries that support & harbor terrorists are just as guilty. Yet the only country he invaded because of this was Afghanistan.

Why????

Well, why did Bush offer to call it off if Afghanistan turned over Bin Laden?

I mean, if Bin Laden's presence was not relevant to the invasion, like you have been saying.

We invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.

The mere idea you right whiners deny this just shows how uninformed & duped you people are.

According to Moser's tally, 50,000 jobs have returned to America from 2009 to 2012, not nearly enough to make a dent in the ranks of 12 million unemployed. Still, five years ago the number of jobs coming back was close to zero, Moser contends. The 50,000 represents about 10 percent of all manufacturing jobs created over the last three years. Experts believe more are coming.

At the Bush "Mission Accomplished" event, he should have announced the withdrawal of all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

As the U.S. dollar continues to weaken, the Chinese renminbi, or yuan, has been appreciating at a 4% annual clip. Many believe this will accelerate in the near future. Continued depreciation of the dollar will further bolster U.S. manufacturing and exports.
Why does O'bama want to continue depreciation of the dollar? because it steals money from people who have saved all their lives that's why.
This has been going on for years, look at a 10 year graph yuan vs. dollar, see when it all started and when it came to a head(2008), you can blame Obama but that is just dumb.

Lindsay Boehner married Dominic Lakhan, a Jamaican-born construction worker, who happens to be black. He also happens to have been previously arrested for marijuana possession. Now, I don't know Rep. Boehner at all, but I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that when he envisioned his ideal son-in-law, it probably wasn't a dreadlocked manual laborer who was arrested for drugs. Very few men would envision such a man as their ideal son-in-law. Even fewer conservative men would -- and even fewer conservative, powerful white men would envision such a man as ideal for their little princess.

There are men who would have made this clear, not only to their daughter but to everyone else, possibly by not attending such a wedding. And yet there was John Boehner, the man who has served as the primary face of the conservative opposition to President Obama -- opposition that some have considered racially based in its intensity -- showing that perhaps he's not so conservative after all. He also showed that while plenty of people may have a problem with the increasingly brown America that Obama governs, one in which multiracial families are among the fastest-growing segment of the population, he is not one of them.

I can think of plenty of so-called liberals who might not have shown the same open-mindedness and character as someone in Boehner's parental position -- if not over the race mixing that this union represents, then certainly over the class mixing that it does.

MORE CLASS THAN OBAMA

This was all put in motion long before Obama became president.

As I have stated many times everything doesn't reset to zero when the new guy takes office.

It's more like concern, digust and anger that you and half the country couldn't tell the difference between a presidential candidate who would have put us back on the right track and a presidential incumbent who is laying down more of the wrong track.
It's not so much directed at the one you chose but, rather, toward you and half the country who chose him and why you chose him. Which is inexplicable.
There came a point when Republicans had to accept Nixon was our embarrassment and mistake. While Democrats are gradually coming to the same conclusion about this president, you still see the emperor's clothes. Which makes you more guilty of your own accusations of not having an ability to think on your own.
i had to laugh at the survey on topix today:'are you better off today than when Obama took office?" and 68% said no.

tough and too bad for future generations, but the grasshoppers won the election.

Americans again voted for a cross between Erkel and a Kardashian with style trumping substance and experience. so, while Obama golfs and parties with Hollywierd (and like this week, campaign fundraised AGAIN in NYC), many have given up looking for jobs and our borders are about to permanently opened. so, we'll end up with more American Idle voting for another Democrat Idol who'll "redistribute."

Please provide the documents where the flight numbers, date and time of the attacks are listed.
Since no specific information was included, what you are saying, based on nebulous information, Bush should have shut down the air. Commercial, transport and, why not military, too. For how long? Days? Months? Years?What would have prevented the terrorists from simply waiting it out? How long would it take to completely decimate the US economy?
What drivel.
I realize that righties all have problems thinking or understanding ...So allow me, They took flying lessons that could be easily tracked, bush did absolutly nothing there sre numerous other precautions that could have been taken...And ignoring was not one of them. now get your head out of the sand snd smell the roses.

If Obama isn't blaming Republicans for his inability to advance his agenda, he's calling them names. During Monday's White House press conference, Obama reiterated his disgust with the GOP's doggedness to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.

"The whole issue of talking points, frankly, throughout this process has been a sideshow," said Obama. Belittling comments like these don't warm Republicans' hearts to help Obama advance one scintilla of an issue in his second term.

Call them what you will -- sideshows or scandals -- they seem to be swirling around the White House like bees to honey. Days after the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee concluded a fresh hearing into who knew what and when about the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, the public learned the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeted conservative groups seeking non-profit exemption to engage in political activism. The IRS's interrogation style questioning of the groups began in 2010. It's hard to read this as anything other than appear politically motivated.

Joining British Prime Minister David Cameron Monday, President Barack Obama tried to set the record straight on both scandals declaring the IRS' actions "outrageous". If proven true, Obama said[,]

"people have to be held accountable, and it's got to be fixed ... But I've got no patience with it. I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened on this."

But will Obama hold senior IRS officials accountable?

The original conversation had to do with me saying we invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden.
In jumped all you right whiners. Some claiming we invaded Afghanistan just because they allowed Bin Laden to be there implying that we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was not there.
Then jumped in Dumbwaiter who claimed we invaded Afghanistan because it was Afghanistan that attacked us even though no hijacker was a Afghan citizen.
Then in jumped you, who claimed the the Taliban attacked us on 9-11.
I have news for you dumbasses.
Al Qaeda under the leadership of Bin Laden planned & launched the attacks of 9-11. It was not the Afghan government, the Afghan people, or the Taliban.
It was Al Qaeda.
It is said that Al Qaeda had camps right here in the US. Maybe we should have invaded ourselves.
The Taliban was the government of Afghanistan. The government of Afghanistan created the environment for Al Qaeda to establish its headquarters there. The Taliban protected Al Qaeda.
The government of Afghanistan was a critical part of the plan to attack the United States. Without the cooperation of the government of Afghanistan, the attack on the United States could not have been executed.
Today, as was the case in September, 2001, Al Qaeda and the Taliban are indistinguishable.
Afghanistan attacked the United States.
And, they got an American boot up their ass for it.

People are becoming aware of Obama being nothing more than a figurehead. A lot of us knew that before the 2008 election just by looking at his term in office, both in Washington and Illinois. Any reasonably wise person would have known Obama wasn't going to become something other than a waste of food and fresh air merely because he won another election.
Here's what's going to happen:
Janet Napolitano is very obviously preparing for a large-scale war with the American people. The so-called "immigration" so-called "reform" legislation will put the 30 MILLION illegal aliens and the 20 million legal aliens here under her direct authority to allow to stay here at her whim.
Obama is allowing Wahhabist terrorists with Saudi passports to enter the country without any scrutiny. They are expanding the network of terrorist cells across the country.
You're dealing with Marxist communists. They have no intent of giving up the power they have achieved.
The precedent has been set for establishing a police state and eliminating all individual rights in Boston in the event of a terrorist attack.

The Democrats will determine the timing when they feel they can secure power by invalidating or postponing or eliminating elections. At this time the Wahhabist terrorists Obama is importing will create a wave of terrorist attacks similar to the communist uprising in South Vietnam in 1968.
An "emergency" condition will be declared, and Janet Napolitano will lock down the cities across the country, preventing any organized resistance to the elimination of the Constitution, thus the constitutional republic.

Plan ahead. Determine the organizational structure before the Democrats make their move. If you wait until it is necessary, you won't be able to do it.
If it is never needed, then that is the best anyone can hope for.

If you're negotiating with Marxist communists, you've already made your first mistake. They are the worst mass murderers in the history of civilization. Don't be naive.
