Oh, no. I have to explain to another bufoon how government works.
Ok, listen up. Take notes if you need to.
Changes in design, such as armor for Humvees, must go through a procurement process.
First, all procurements must be in response to a threat to be approved.(Secretary of Defense)
Then, money must be appropriated for it.(Congress)
Then, it must go through source selection.(Secretary of Defense)
Then it must go through concept exploration.(NAVAIR/NAVSEA/etc .)
Then it must go through design/development.(NAVAIR/NAV SEA/etc.)
Then it must be deployed.(Pentagon)
These types of changes are usually accomodated in a FIVE YEAR DEFENSE PLAN, you fucking idiot.
CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT
Now, follow the arithmetic... naught plus naught is naught....
In Clinton's Five Yar Defense Plan, there was no thought of increasing the armor for the Humvees. The Five Year Defense Plan had to be amended to accomodate this and accelerate the process.... you fucking idiot.
Read this twice, idiot.
And, please refrain from participating in a discussion of topics you don't know a goddam thing about.
How how about you read your post instead of blabbing off at the mouth! Procurement process, there has to be a threat. There was no threat under Clinton's watch. There were no wars! So please explain how Clinton would know if a design approved by the previous administration would or wouldn't work. That's total bullshit! Our armed forces weren't even worried about IEDs until Bush decided to invade Iraq for no fucking reason at all &, if it took a 5yr plan to get them designed approved, & shipped, why did they correct the situation as soon as they found out that was the troops #1 cause of death? It sure didn't take 1yr let alone 5yrs. That's the reason you people on the right made a big deal about Clinton getting head. You couldn't find a flaw in his ideological strategic plan. You know like I know, Bush should've never been president & was completely incompetent his entire 8yrs in office, & the country has yet to recover from his failures!

Then there's this:
FBI kills Florida man with suspected ties to Boston bomb suspect: NBC
MIAMI (Reuters)- An FBI agent shot and killed a Florida man with suspected links to the Boston Marathon bombings early on Wednesday, NBC News reported.
NBC said the suspect was being questioned and was originally cooperative, but was fatally shot after attacking the agent.
The Orlando Sentinel said a friend had identified the dead man as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev of Orlando. The newspaper quoted the friend, Khusn Taramiv, as saying Todashev was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were mixed martial-arts fighters.
http://news.yahoo.com/fbi-kills-florida-man-s...
They interviewed both he and his room mate several times since the Boston bombing as they are from Chechnya and Todashev knew the bombers.

The deceased has a criminal record in Florida, assault and battery, and was planning to travel back to Chechnya with a yet to be named individual within the next few weeks.

It's being reported that he became violent during last night's interview.

So the FBI blew his azz away.

‘OBAMA"S MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT’

Obama bin Lying Signs Order that protects crony maker of genetically modified crops... makes the Corporatist Barack Obama the most GMO-dedicated politician in America.

Biotech lobbyists and Monsanto exec's litter obama's cabinet and FDA. Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock.

The Blaze - A biotech rider included in spending bill HR 933 and signed by President Obama on Tuesday will require the Agriculture Department to approve the growing, harvesting and selling of genetically modified crops, Fox News reports.

The Monsanto Protection Act has been met by White House protests and no less than two petitions, including one by the group Food Democracy that has garnered more than 250,000 signatures over concerns that back-room deal was struck with food growers at the expense of Americans’ health.

Senator (D)John Tester told Politico that the deal with Monsanto, the world’s largest producer of genetically modified seeds and crops,will only benefit big corporations.

“These provisions are giveaways, pure and simple sellouts and will be a boon worth millions of dollars to a handful of the biggest corporations in this country,” he said.

The National Farmers Union, the American Civil Liberties Union, Stonyfield Farms and Nature’s Path also claim to oppose the rider, FN reports.

Critics are blasting Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski in particular, claiming she allowed the rider to be included without conducting a proper hearing first.

Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the Center for Food Safety, said the situation is a “hidden backroom deal.”

“Sen. Mikulski turned her back on consumer, environmental and farmer protection in favor of corporate welfare for biotech companies such as Monsanto,” he said.“This abuse of power is not the kind of leadership the public has come to expect from Sen. Mikulski or the Democrat majority in the Senate.”

There's a million marines, there's only 1 president. If he gets sick from standing in the rain it only harms America! Ever thought about that "asshole?"
He being sick harms us how ? Hell if he was bed ridden he would still do more harm to the U.S.A than any foriegn threat ever.

You obviously read too much of your own propaganda.
Red-faced Republicans, circling and preparing to pounce on a second-term Democratic president they loathe, do not respect, and certainly do not fear. Sound familiar? Perhaps reminiscent of Bill Clinton’s second term, after the Monica Lewinsky story broke? During that time, Republicans became so consumed by their hatred of Clinton and their conviction that this event would bring him down that they convinced themselves the rest of the country was just as outraged by his behavior as they were. By the way, what was Clinton’s lowest Gallup job-approval rating in his second term, throughout the travails of investigations and impeachment? It was 53 percent. The conservative echo machine had worked itself into such a frenzy, the GOP didn’t realize that the outrage was largely confined to the ranks of those who never voted for Clinton anyway.

These days, the country is even more polarized, and the conservative echo chamber is louder than ever before. Many conservatives made it all the way to Election Day last November unaware that their White House nominee was falling short. How could Mitt Romney possibly lose when everyone they knew was voting for him? Except that he did lose, and it wasn’t even a very close race. Five other post-World War II presidential elections had closer outcomes.

The simple fact is that although the Republican sharks are circling, at least so far, there isn’t a trace of blood in the water. A new CNN/ORC survey of 923 Americans this past Friday and Saturday, May 17-18, pegged Obama’s job-approval rating at 53 percent, up a statistically insignificant 2 points since their last poll, April 5-7, which was taken before the Benghazi, IRS, and AP-wiretap stories came to dominate the news and congressional hearing rooms. His disapproval rating was down 2 points since that last survey.

In Gallup’s tracking poll, Obama’s average job-approval rating so far this year is 50 percent. For this past week, May 13-19, his average was 49 percent, the same as the week before. The most recent three-day moving average, through Sunday, May 19, was also 49 percent. Over the past two weeks, even as these three stories/scandals have dominated the news, they have had precisely zero effect on the president’s job-approval numbers. His ratings are still bouncing around in the same narrow range they have been for weeks.

FOX is no more effective then it was before the election. but when there's only 3 million people watching the right wing propaganda machine what can you expect.
