Barack Obama, our next President

Well well well Moocher Eed is playing word games to defend his pathetic party.

Every one nows, evidently with the exception of dumbf*ck moocher Eed, that he cuts to embassy security would have included security s all aspects of the diplomatic service including consulates.

Lying 47percenter. You just made those 2 "acts" up.
You don't stay well-informed on the nation's news. Both the American Veterans Jobs Act and the American Veterans with Disabilities Act were defeated by Republicans. "Eager to shoot down President Obama’s legislative agenda just weeks before the election, Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a measure that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work in their communities. " http://nyti.ms/TQXgk3

"Former Senator Bob Dole, 89 years old and in a wheelchair, went onto to the floor of the Senate today to urge his former colleagues to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities. Mr. Dole, a disabled veteran, has been one of the leading voices urging ratification of the treaty, which seeks to bring the world closer to the high standard set by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the landmark civil-rights law enacted under President George H.W. Bush." ..."One by one, according to Roll Call, the senators approached Mr. Dole to pat his shoulder or clasp his hand, making gestures of respect for the man who was for many years the Republican majority leader.

Then he was wheeled away, and all but a handful of the Republicans bailed out on him. The treaty failed. It needed a two-thirds vote to pass, or 67 votes, and fell six short." Check this out: http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/0...

why don't you start with the Patriot act
under George W Bush it became legal
to seize and imprision American citizens with a warrant and a trial
it became legal to torture American citizens held in captivity
it became legal to wiretap American citizens without a warrant
it became legal to seize library records of American citizens without telling them and without a warrant
thousands of American citizens were seized, imprisoned and tortured without a warrant or trial under George W Bush.....
Maybe if you could grasp we were in an unprecedented war after an attack on our shores where the enemy could be your next door neighbor, you might succeed in having some much needed perspective.

Obama's
The number of federal employees grew by 123,000, or 6.2%, under President Obama, according to the White House's Office of Management and Budget.

Government spending as a share of the economy has hovered around 24% during the Obama administration, several percentage points higher than under President Bush, according to Congressional Budget Office data. It's also elevated from the historical average of 20.7% over the past 40 years.
----------




How much has President Barack H. Obama grown the size of the U.S. government’s budget since coming into power in January 2009?

If we go by President George W. Bush’s final Fiscal Year 2009 budget, in which the average amount of federal government spending for each year through Fiscal Year 2013 was projected to be $2.732 trillion (in terms of inflation-adjusted, constant 2005 U.S. dollars) and compare that value to the average amount of federal spending that President Obama is currently projecting for both 2012 and 2013 of $3.185 trillion (also in terms of constant 2005 U.S. dollars), we find that President Obama has effected a permanent federal government spending increase of at least $452 billion.

Or in other terms, President Obama has permanently grown the size of the U.S. federal government’s budget by 16.5% during the four years he will have been in office by the end of his first term in office. The federal government’s spending is one-sixth bigger today than it was projected to be at this point four years ago.

At least the Bush administration WAS at "battle stations".
Months before the attack, Clinton was being tried by a Grand Jury and lying his ass off being accused of sexual harrassment involving a subordinate while governor of Arkansas and embarrassing himself for lying to the country and to his family about getting BJs in the Oval Office on the taxpayer dime.
I'll take "battle stations" any day. Clinton is excused though, I know. His sex life was his personal business.
So Bush and Co were at 'battle stations', eh??

Glad you agree that he's the most incompetent drunk we've ever had for a President.

But and Cheney at Battle Stations, and Saudi Arabian terrorists destroy the two WTC Towers and destroy part of the Pentagon, costing America 3,000 lives.

Bush turned America into a giant recruiting progrm for terrorists.

So what did the idiot do?? Saudi's attack us, so Bush invades Afganistan and Iraq!!

And holds hands and exchanges warm kisses with Saudi Princes.

The plain truth is that you're just as stupid as Bush.

It's likely your alcoholism and smoking led to your diabetes and high cholesterol.

You reap what you've sown, Lorac. The returns will get worse as you age. Diabetic amputations, anyone?? How's about a nice smoking related coronary??

You've got it coming, you hateful racist loser.

Are you forgetful? Only a moron doesn't know where the official US Embassy in Libya is located.

Did you know that it was the Bush Administration that began normalizing diplomatic relations with Libya? Can you tell us all what year that occurred?

BTW it was America's Hunt family who discovered and developed Libya's oil fields.

Once again, you're wrong.

Under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact which was revised after 9/11, the Federal Government and FEMA are not allowed to interfere with local operations unless they are authorized by state and local leaders.

Blanco refused until September 1 long after it was too late.

I note you nitwits no longer talk about austerity, since Ken Rogoff's economic justification was taken apart by college students.

Seems he had bad data in his Excel spreadsheet that led to incorrect conclusions.

The reason for the slow job recovery is all the fault of Repugnants in the House.

Keynes was right about the economy, the conservatives have their heads up their asses, and are destroying the economy for spite.

Repugnants are traitors to America. Yes, you, smokey./

Austerity has led to ever worse conditions in Europe. Anyone but an idiot like you knows you can't cut your way to prosperity.

Austerity leads to civil unrest and possible revolution. Ifconservatives don't wake up, they'll see a repeat of the 1930's, when despots came into power due to people's suffering.

Stay ignorant, Carol. It's obvious you don't have the brains to do anything other.

How slow are you?

The person in CHARGE of embassy security states during congressional hearings the failure in Benghazi WAS not due to lack of funds.

The person in charge of EMBASSY security states during CONGRESSIONAL hearings the failure in Benghazi was not due to LACK of funds.

The PERSON in charge of embassy SECURITY states during CONGRESSIONAL hearings the FAILURE in Benghazi was not due to LACK of funds.

There is no way to change the meaning of the statement that was made during the hearings.

But you're still wrong.
Over the five years of President Bush’s administration, Louisiana received far more money for Corps civil works projects than any other state, about $1.9 billion.
Louisiana not only leads the nation in overall Corps funding, it places second in new construction — just behind Florida.
To be fair, Louisiana’s politicians are no different from those of other states and want to get as many federal dollars as they can and spend them on projects that will have the biggest economic impact.
In this case, they judged the risk of a Category 4 or 5 hurricane taking a direct path over New Orleans sufficiently low as to permit the money to go to projects that were seemingly more urgent.
Obviously, they guessed wrong–with tragic consequences.

Stop placing blame on everyone and everything besides those who are most to blame.
It's going to make you very mad, but that's childish.
lol! You made it a Blanco / Nagin issue son.

You were schooled that the system is a federal issue.

So you started the blame game based on false and incorrect information you're trying to sell.

Gaddafi was a tiger tamed. Terrorist groups were banned from the country and controlled and then someone got the bright idea to remove him and the country has spiraled downward since.
