That would be the Democrats with the cradle to grave. Repubs are the screw anyone and everyone. You are all on your own. Somewhat like the American companies working the China slaves girls for .30 cents an hour. That's a Repub dream to have NO safety, health, environmental laws.
As far as votes, I have yet in my life to see the most Rightwing FrightWing person EVER pass on signing up on SS and Medicare when they turned 65. Try taking it away from a Tea Bagger.

Maybe, but the difference is that there was no reason to get involved in Libya.
Romney said we should take the lead in attacking Libya because Gaddafi had ordered the attack on a 747 over Lockerbie,Scotland.

So what you talking about, Rufus?? Reagan attacked Gaddafi, and your idea that he was tamed is pure bullspittle. He just went underground with his terrorism.

If anyone was tamed, it was Saddam. Bush I had Desert STorm, that pretty much destroyed Saddam's tank army and the Republican Guard.

Than they had weapons inspectors and a no flight zone.

If that's not tamed, what's your definition?? A guy who orders civilian aircraft to be bombed??

This was after Reagan supposedly tamed him. 1988. Reagan bombed him in 1986.

Gaddafi never ended his support for terrorists in other Sub Saharan countries like Mali, Ethopia, Somalia.

Why has Libya become such a focus for you??

As part of the immigration bill, we should send a socialist/DemocRAT to MEXICO for every illegal the liberals hope to get as a vote. Seems fair to me.
According to Wikipedia Hispanics from Mexico are responsible for the significant group of ethnic-based gangs in the United States and is one of the concerns of increased illegal immigration to the United States because of the gang-related activity associated with the Hispanics coming across the border from Mexico and the Clowns in Washington wants to give the Illegal's citizenship and that is crazy as hell!.

<quoted text> On one hand you ask why Clinton didn't kill Osama, then turn around & utter,"stop bringing up Bush." What a conundrum!
You so conveniently forget about your Republican witch hunt in the Lewinsky scandal. You also forget your boy made Bin Laden. Reagan made him & both Bush's made him richer than his Daddy left him. You also forgot he only decided to go against America when Bush Kuwait & 1st stepped for on Muslim soil. Before that Bunn Laden was a soldier in an army. Same shit from you republicans. Start a bunch of shit then blame the preceding democrat for not cleaning up your mess. Y'all know how to lie & start a war but, have no idea how to end it, at least victorious!. Clinton didn't start the Christian/Muslim war on the West. Why should he have been the one to clean it up? Go ahead & lie, shift the blame on Obama for Bush's blunder. It's a reoccurring there & it's gotten old fast!
The country and obama's administration are going to hell, Korea f*ck you obama, Eric Holder is a criminal, IRS is Gestapo, Associated Press and News Outletts are turning on obama, and Syria is ready to kick azz you moron...
LOL... And...all you can do you idiot is have a love affair with Bush and Reagan...

So you are saying it is the Democrats fault because thy did not stop the Republicans from nearly killing this country.
I have news, Obama was NOT president in 2007.
By thew time Obama took office we were already in the midst of the recession.
Hi Dumb Dave,

When you come back from the Moon, look in to whose policies caused the recession. Here's a hint. It wasn't the Republicans.

By the way charlatan, there was a world wide recession. Does a moron like you think the Republicans caused the recession worldwide?

Baawwaaahhhh!!!!

As long as you're willing to concede control of your life to the government you'll find no fault in their decisions. And of course, knowing that you'll never be considered "rich", for obvious reasons, makes it all that much easier.

When we take back the country, you moochers will need to fish or cut bait.

So, we agree.
Galt supported the war, but not the occupation.
There were 2 Iraq Wars.

The first, led by Colin Powell, was a masterpiece of military planning that is studied in War Colleges worldwide.

The second was successful for the first few weeks. But there was no plan, and we became bogged down in a war of attrition. So we ended up buying off the opposition, which is what the 'surge' was really about. Paying off Sunni Chiefs to not attack us.

Iraq I was neat and tidy. Iraq II was a disaster for America, exposing enormous strains in our limited military. Evidenced by record suicides among Iraq and Afgan vets.

Yes indeed. Good point. In my state, this morning at 5AM in a Vampire DemocRAT session, the DemocRATS approved giving illegals drivers licenses. I can't wait to move to a red state.

I sure hope you don't have a family history of any chronic diseases because you're one in a million if so. They don't usually catch up to you until you're more mature - in your case, a long time - but they do eventually.
Smoking cigarettes is hereditary??

Type II Diabetes is generally caused by lifestyle choices.

Proven by lap band type surgery, which eliminates diabetes in most patients who had been diabetic. Came as a big surprise to doctors.

Why would anyone with a family history of chronic diseases further muddy the waters by smoking, eating junk food, etc??

Get a clue. I was referencing what I thought was Karma's train of thought.
How old are you? You appear to be young.
You're really crazy. Now you analyze messages to determine their age ?? How does one 'appear to be young'??

You think you can follow others train of thought when youre is still at the station??

You're nothing but a drama queen, projecting your ignorance onto others.
