<quoted text>You're attacking a career U S foreign service officer with 40 years experience. "Ambassador Thomas Pickering served more than four decades as a U.S. diplomat. He last served as under secretary of state for political affairs, the third highest post in the U.S. State Department. Pickering also served as ambassador to the United Nations, the Russian Federation, India, Israel, and Jordan, and holds the personal rank of Career Ambassador."

If he didn't even interview Hillary, his being appointed to get to the bottom of all the unanswered questons was a joke. He could be Abraham Lincoln for all I care.

You know all about being a liar. Caught several times here boldly lying.

Dupont is slow, poor guy, he thinks if he keeps playing "I am stupid" he can avoid admitting he was wrong and in his twisted mind somehow 'win'.

Now you -frontporch-has a reality problem. How many times do we have to tell you that you are last one in the world anyone would take advice from or should.

<quoted text> However, the Republicans controlled the Senate all through Reagan's 2 terms--every one who knows anything about how our government functions also knows that the Senate leads and the House follows. Was the sequestration a new idea. No, republicans pushed it through in 1985 . "So they passed the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Balanced Budget Act, which did just that, as U.S. News explained at the time:
"Under the law, enacted in the final days of the 1985 session, Congress and the President must agree on a budget that meets annual deficit-reduction targets, or spending will be cut automatically under a complex system called "sequestration." Sound familiar?
Then, as now, the cuts were evenly divided among defense and nondefense programs. Then, as now, onlookers warned the cuts would leave food and drugs uninspected, airport runways unwatched, and soldiers unequipped.
[READ: 10 Industries That Will Be Hurt Most by the Sequester]
"All of us, and that includes the President and his advisers, will have to give a little if we are to avoid the wreckage," said Pete Domenici, the Senate's budget chairman at the time, sounding very much like current House Speaker John Boehner.
So what happened? It didn't work. The Supreme Court declared the automatic cuts unconstitutional, and when a revised version of the bill passed in 1987, Congress mostly evaded the cuts, and the deficit continued to grow. " Check this out: http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/press-past/2... Thus, Reaganomics was a failure in the 1980's and un-Constitutional and the plan to revive it by Paul Ryan and John Boehner has also been proved to be a failure --so why do republicans stick to failed , impoverished ideas? They must really hate American across the board prosperity equally shared by all.

The Democrats have no intention of enforcing any new gun-control law in their districts. Those laws are solely for other-than-Democrats.
After all, every burglar shot and rapist killed and mugger blown away is one less vote for Obama.
No doubt every one of the weapons used was already illegal, so naturally the Democrat response will be more gun control.

Meanwhile, the Chicago cops just stay out of the way and let the savages kill each other.

That IS the danger and you're right. No question.

We are not immune to the tactics used by former wolves in sheep's clothing who managed to succeed in their design to control the people - all for their own good, mind you.

I'm more and more hopeful these days we won't be among the fooled forever recorded in history.

You need to ask BUSH43 's FEMA didn't heed those warnings and briefed the Louisiana state government. Remember; the Army Corps of Engineers that built the levees is a federal agency under the control of the Commander-in-Chief. Another Bush43 failure of leadership.

The Corps of Engineers needs to allocate their budget where it will have the most effect.

Protecting New Orleans over the long term is a losing proposition no matter how much money is spent.

Better to spend the money where there is a chance of success.

republicans chose a worse response to deny that we need background checks that could have kept those illegal guns off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. Go figure.

Carol posts as a republican and sees things through republican glasses.
Think President George W Bush is now too liberal for the present day Republican party.
President Ford seems to agree in recent comments.
