<quoted text>the current POTUS would not BE the current POTUS if not in spite of his character and because of the color of his skin. any fool can figure out that the recent scandals reveal the hypocrisy of the intolerant, anti-American left who as the poster on page 1 on this thread posted, "yep, they only wanted a black president." but not too black and as Harry Reid said, light skinned and not having a negro dialect. only a feeble mind wouldn't acknowledge that this empty suit in the White House should stick with perpetually campaigning, golfing and partying with Hollywierd. his 3 greatest accomplishments other than dividing the nation with his class war. did your baby daddies drop off the kids yet? did they have lead paint chips for breakfast yet? are they parked in front of the TV already?
For every person that voted for Obama because he is black, there are more that voted agast him for that same reason.

<quoted text>how much heartless pork was added to the tornado aid, like just these few of many examples with Sandy:
$58.8 million for forest restoration on private land.
$197 million “to… protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy.”
$10.78 billion for public transportation, most of which is allocated to future construction and improvements, not disaster relief.
$17 billion for wasteful Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), a program that has become notorious for its use as a backdoor earmark program

The pictures and video I saw said the 'hardened places' were blown flat. Luck is all that saved some of those children. People out in those parts that under ground is the safest place. I ask again " Why were there no storm shelters at those schools?".

Will Republicans Screw Up Again? Some Are Already Overreaching

....let’s not forget: Republicans failed to capitalize on President Bill Clinton’s inappropriate conduct by over-playing their hand and pushing impeachment. Not only did they fail to drive him from office, the GOP ended up losing a handful of House seats in the 1998 midterms instead of adding seats as initially expected.

Republicans allowed themselves to look as if they were primarily interested in scoring political points and overturning the results of the 1996 election, even if it meant paralyzing the government.

That same danger exists once again for the GOP.

http://blogs.rollcall.com/rothenblog/will-rep...

check the polls. most think that the Admin has overreached on Benghazi and the IRS Tea Party 'scandal', but check Obama's poll numbers and they lead back to the economy.

it's improving and so are his poll numbers.

Another Poll Shows No Public Backlash Against Obama

...Obama's approval rating stands at 51 percent, a modest 1-point uptick since last month's ABC/WaPo survey. Forty-four percent said they disapprove, down a point from last month. The President likely benefitted from a rosier economic outlook. Fifty-six percent said they believe the economy has begun to recover, up three points from March. Obama's job approval on the economy — 48 percent — jumped four points since last month's ABC/WaPo poll.

A CNN/ORC International poll released on Sunday also showed that, despite growing skepticism toward the IRS and Benghazi, Obama had not yet paid a political price for the controversies.

Maybe not 200mph but buildings here have to do 150mph. Building square or rectangular buildings is just asking for trouble. They should be rounded or better yet buried.

You weren't paying attention as usual Flacko.

There were hardened spaces and they were not blown flat.

By the way, you only assume that the children who died were at the school. Plenty of mobile homss ripped apart too.

March Against Obama bin Lying and Monsanto on 5/25..

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/07/1207 ...

Biotech lobbyists and Monsanto exec's litter obama's cabinet and FDA you fools.

Two of the Obama's biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock.

The Monsanto Protection Act was signed into law by Barack Obama bin Lying...

A president obama who presented himself, and was believed by many to be, an extraordinary departure from politics as usual. Not only was that a wrong assessment, Obama was lying all along, a sellout. He was, and he still is, Monsanto's man in Washington.

You deranged democrats and Obama bin Lying are poisoning the food supply and all you can do is rag on republicans... LOL...

Probably because your heartless, hypocritical Greedy Old Pricks cut funding to schools just as they did for diplomatic security...'course it'll all be Obama's fault in a vast left-wing conspiracy quicker than the same wastes of air can get an investigative committee going to hog some more airtime.(I really don't mind that as the more one sees the Gormless Odd Gohmerts of the ilk, the less inclined he/she is to vote for them.)

You must have some ballistic underwear you gasbag! Your pharts must blow way over 200 mph.
How can you stand it?

Anyway: USA citizens worth OVER $50 TRILLION DOLLARS TODAY!

Most of it in a few greedy hands: top 10% own 90%.

SO LET THE RICH PAY MORE: THEY OWN IT, THEY GET TO MAINTAIN IT!

Maintenance: jobs, healthcare, education, retirement, storm clean up, etc.

Raise taxes on rich incomes: way up there! The rich can afford it, they are richer than ever before right now!

Republicans <----- Total dumb fffffcking greedy iceholes!

<quoted text>That's your claim son.
But we know bushie lied. And killed 4,400+ Americans while spending trillions and killing civilians for no reason at all.
I'm getting really tired of this broken record.

Pay attention.

Bush, the UN and Intel all agreed Saddam had WMDs.
111 Democrats agreed with the UN, Intel and Bush.
The Democrats passed the Resolution to give Bush the authority to take down Saddam - which was the only original mission.
The enemy declared Iraq the frontlines.
The Iraq War then became about defeating the enemy.

If Bush lied, the UN lied and 111 Democrats lied.
Everyone knew Saddam had the capabilities to possess WMDs and would have them again.

Not finding them did not mean they were never there or were somewhere else.

A handful of Democrats lied to you saying Bush lied to them. Most of them did not. Only the ones who had an election to win.

It's the same pattern now. Win at all costs.

Your party lied to you then and they are lying to you now.

So please change the record.
