Barack Obama, our next President

Here's a fun fact for you Battie, House Republicans hold their 37th vote to repeal Obamacare today. Current cost of those 37 votes?
$55 million.
And let’s not forget the only reason they’re wasting the time and money on today’s vote is because the freshmen demand it!!!!!
Awesome isn't it Battie? ;)
You probably don't know Democrats are helping Republicans repeal parts of Obamacare.

They want to be reelected. Obama's election days are over so they don't have to keep defending this monstrosity anymore.

Anyway,$55 million - if they are successful in repealing it - is a drop in the bucket compared to what it's going to cost us if it isn't.

Are you sure you want to argue how budgets are the answer?
Do you ever say anything and not lie? I do believe you lie almost... almost as much as Obama.

Tell us your assessment of the impact of the dot-com bust.

Tell us your assessment of the impact on the war the Arabs started with us.

Tell us how the Republicans managed to kick the shit out of the Arabs after they started a war with us, and during that war they turned over to the Democrats a 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit, and had added only 3.5 trillion dollars to the total debt while fighting a global war.
Tell us what the Democrats did to the deficit and debt since.

... well?

Considering your ignorant, and idiotic, responses, you should have stayed out of the discussion.
Valerie Plame was solely responsible for verification of all intelligence given to the president on Iraq's WMD programs.
But unverified intel did go to the President & he used intel that Plame had not verified.

Your complete argument assumes that all CIA intel regarding WMD had to be approved by Plame before the President saw it.

Just ridiculous is this assumption? Does the President know that there are reports that Syria used wmds? But these reports were not yet confirmed to be true.

<quoted text>Gerrymandering continues and this past election cycle it was responsible for Florida (R) US Housemember Sandy Adams losing her seat to (R) John Mica__Hah. It also brought (D)Alan Grayson back into congress and cost Allen West his place in history.
Both West and Adams were TeaParty candidates who were fcd by the fickled finger of (R) gerrymandering fate.
So, let's take Florida (or any other state), and draw parallel lines in N-S or E-W grids of absolutely identical population sizes.

A the time, there were no facts, dumbass. We had unconfirmed reports.

Whether it was a protest that escalated or an organized terror attack has zero influence on Hillary's political future or the re-election of Barack Obama.

It doesn't matter it was done legally.
The guilty parties are the government officials, not the reporters, and the government officials should bear the invasion of privacy.

Perhaps they are afraid of White House calls to prostitutes.

It has been a long-standing tradition among American presidents to refrain from commenting on their predecessor(s) after leaving office.
Well, that was true until Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and eventually Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama.... that is provided he leaves the White House voluntarily and we don't have to go in there and drag his mooching ass out of their when his free ride is over.

Galt lays the blame on the fundamentalist Christians, a narrow-minded bunch of fools who are anti-abortion leftists.

YOu mean the TEA Party.
The RINOs are no different than the Democrats who think ObamaKare is great for us but don't want any part of it anywhere near themselves.
The biggest plus for keeping ObamaKare to the Democrats (including RINO Democrats) is it is a fantastic vehicle for taxation to generate revenue that can be used for any other purpose other than ObamaKare. There is nothing in ObamaKare that mandates the taxes collected by ObamaKare be used to implement ObamaKare.
You people were duped... a-f**k*ng-gain.

Can't imagine anyone NOT thinking there'd have to be a few thousand emails about something of this magnitude between the CIA, State Department and the WH.

Releasing 100 emails is like firing the IRS commissioner one month before he was going to resign anyway thinking that would fix everything.

Got some examples of some lies from Cheney? He did admit he shot a lawyer. Even you have to love him for that... unless you're some kind of a lawyer-worshipping lawyer wannabe.

Dot Comm bust was a minor bump in the road & hardly felt other than investment firms.

When you go to war, you don't cut taxes. We have the same wars when Obama rook office so why do you give Bush cover for the wars & not Obama?

We should not have invaded Afghanistan. We should have weakened the Taliban military & gone in to get Bin Laden using surgical strike, & air power. Invasion forced us intonation building.

Iraq was a war of choice & Bush is to blame for all the deaths & costs.

Saudi Arabia is an Arab country. Are you claiming they attacked us?

Bush was President in 2007 & 2008 & every department of the Federal Government was run by a Republican.

The money to run those wars was not in that budget. Oh wait, if the spending isn't in the budget, it doesn't matter to you. I forgot.

I don't know what planet you're posting from, but the recession on this planet was caused by the Democrats' ludicrous Marxist CRA program, which was predicted to collapse the economy as soon as Bill Clinton began strong-arming banks into making loans to people who could not possibly pay for them.
You forgot to post the numbers, dufus. Start with what the Democrats were given in January, 2007: 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion deficit. 8.5 trillion debt. What happened after that?
I just want a Democrat to actually post some truth here for a change. Here's your chance.
You can get what you wish for only if you reciprocate or do the same thing.(Doofus! LOL)

Zero influence, except that Hillary either screwed the pooch and/or outright lied about Benghazi.

The Republican candidate in 2016 will not be as timid as Romney in pressing this issue, in the unlikely event that old lady Hillary is the nominee.

Benghazi was a CIA operation that went awry__wasn't the first and won't be the last, deal with it.
Benghazi was an Al Qaeda attack on the United States planned earlier in the spring to kidnap a US ambassador.
yeah. I'm betting these bufoons in the White House think the public doesn't need to know anything. That's why they invented the lies Obama spewed for two weeks afterward covering up the Al Qaeda attack.
How about we see all the emails, and we determine what we need to know.
