In today’s episode of “What’s good for me is not good for thee” we find then-Senator Joe Biden in 2006 pontificating on the evils of spying presidents. Funny how Joe’s position has “evolved” in seven years, huh?

On Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier, last night, a video from May 12, 2006 was aired in which Biden admonished us not to trust a president who spies on the American people.

“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

So, what’s changed, Joe? Other than it’s now Barack Obama who’s doing the “information collecting,” I mean? Anyway, don’t count me – or other freedom-loving Americans – in, either.

“This is a very strange way to make policy about something this important,” Frank Ackerman, an economist at Tufts University who published a book about the economics of global warming, said in an interview. The Obama administration “hasn’t always leveled with us about what is happening behind closed doors.”
This is preposterous ,shoddy reporting by Bloomberg.com news because the EPA has been using this kind of carbon-accounting method for years in their reports and wrote a scathing criticism of the State Department for not using it for their own analysis of the prevailing costs of building the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline. "For years, the Environmental Protection Agency has urged the State Department to do just this kind of calculation as part of its environmental review of the Keystone project. But the State Department has never done so.
In April, in a review sharply critical of the State Department's latest draft environmental impact statement for the project, the EPA again urged this approach.
It cited estimates that the tar sands crude oil the pipeline would carry could add 19 million tons of incremental emissions to the atmosphere each year—the amount of extra pollution due to the fact that tar sands oil is dirtier than conventional oil and uses more energy to produce. Using the new carbon cost estimate, the extra emissions from the oil delivered in the year 2020 alone would impose future costs of more than $800 million in today's dollars. Every following year's emissions would add to the economic harm, and at a steadily escalating price per ton.
"If greenhouse gas intensity of oil sands crude is not reduced, over a 50 year period the additional carbon dioxide from oil sands crude transported by the pipeline could be as much as 935 million metric tons," the EPA told the State Department. "It is this difference in greenhouse gas intensity—between oil sands and other crudes—that is a major focus of the public debate about the climate impacts of oil sands crude."
Some analysts contend that the social damage costs from the Keystone would be far higher."

Social damage costs?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA .........

How about self-image damage to Tree-Huggers?

Equality and Justice for Earth Worms?

Dumbass Dave's liquor store is not a business, but a government monopoly.

Government union checkout clerks earn $60K per year, guaranteeing highest liquor prices in the US. But they offer lousy selection and surly attitude as compensation.

The Taqiyyah Doctrine empowers a Muslim by encouraging lying, misrepresentation and deceit in order to protect one’s self and their religion. The doctrine is pretty much a defense apparatus that allows the believer to do whatever it takes to preserve his or her life, property, maintain his self esteem, sovereignty and leadership. When necessary one is allowed to lie and deceive as long as the believer conceals his true identity.
Barack Obama is a pathological liar because he is a muslim executing the Taqiyyah Doctrine in an attempt to force Sharia Law onto the population Of the United States.
Sure moron, that's why his administration stopped defending DOMA in the courts and came out for marriage equality because we all know that Sharia law is really into same sex marraige.

Why do we still not know who told who what in perpetrating the lie about Benghazi? Why did everyone know about the IRS besides the president?
Why does Holder still have a job? And why has the president not been forthcoming in addressing and providing an explanation to any of these issues?
There's only one logical answer. There's no reason to clam up and hide if you have nothing to hide.
Obama has to either confess incompetence on the part of his administration or his involvement.
Since no one has been fired for imcompetence, that eliminates the first one.
Unless someone has a third option.
You keep harping about some nonexistent "lie" concerning Benghazi. There were none Carol.
A New York Times article from October 17 2012 took a comprehensive look at what transpired and this is one interesting fact they discovered;
According to reporting by David D. Kirkpatrick and Suliman Ali Zway of The New York Times, eyewitnesses have said there was no peaceful demonstration against the video outside the compound before the attack, though a crowd of Benghazi residents soon gathered, and some later looted the compound. But the attackers, recognized as members of a local militant group called Ansar al-Shariah, did tell bystanders that they were attacking the compound because they were angry about the video. They did not mention the Sept. 11 anniversary. Intelligence officials believe that planning for the attack probably began only a few hours before it took place.

Do you honestly expect the President to be personally aware of everything that happens in every department of every agency/ That's pretty inane.

There was nothing illegal about obtaining records of phone calls through a subpoena Carol. This was a valid investigation of a leak of classified information that the Republicans themselves demanded.
James Rosen's information was obtained by a legal warrant again in relation to a national security leak.

Sure moron, whatever you say. Your link shows "page not found" but no big deal. The NY Slimes has about as much credibility as you which is ZERO!

You confirm you are a moron when you say things like:

"But the attackers, recognized as members of a local militant group called Ansar al-Shariah, did tell bystanders that they were attacking the compound because they were angry about the video. "

Only a complete fringe Moonbat would use such an argument to prove he is an idiot.
