Barack Obama, our next President

Yes, desperate indeed sonic-Kool-Aid drinker. Your talking points are silly and ridiculous, just an example of you Democrats politicized the war after they spewed rhetoric getting us into the war in Iraq.

Don't believe me though, leftard. Just humor me and listen to what Madeline Albright and other Democrats said. Then try and spin your way out of their responsibility. You should also remember that the Senate Democrats also voted 29-21 to use force in Iraq:

<-- MUST VIEW, then spin

"Resolution sharply divides Democrats

The Senate vote sharply divided Democrats, with 29 voting for the measure and 21 against. All Republicans except Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island voted for passage"

Hypocrisy Overload: Dick Cheney Calls Edward Snowden a Traitor
Dick Cheney helped mislead the country into invading Iraq and has been convicted of war crimes, but he thinks Edward Snowden is a traitor.
....What the former vice president left out of the conversation was that Snowden would have never had access to classified information without the explosion of the private contractor intelligence industry after the Patriot Act was passed. Without the Patriot Act, Edward Snowden may not have been in position to access classified information.
Cheney was part of an administration that fabricated intelligence in order to mislead the country into invading Iraq, so I donít think he has any room to be tossing the traitor word around.
The former vice presidentís capacity for hypocrisy is astounding. Ultimately Edward Snowden is responsible for his own actions, but the policies of Bush/Cheney administration opened the door for this to happen.
The word traitor is being thrown around almost as often as the term whistle blower, but I am not comfortable with either description. The facts are that Snowden is a leaker, who definitely committed crimes. If Edward Snowden did pass intelligence to the Chinese, he is a traitor and a spy.(Interestingly, if Snowden did or does pass information to the Chinese, what does that make Glenn Greenwald?)

being amused by right wing hypocrisy does not equate to desperation.

Media Matters is not primarily in politics. So they hold rales, run candidates?
Tea Party. PARTY. The name implies this is primaroly an organization looking to put forth their own candidates.
This is NOT permitted under the rules for the tax exempt status they applied for.
Its that simple.
Then you are WRONG.

The IG report found the IRS targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' in their name was illegal.

Makes no difference what your opinion is as this is not decided by a raise of hands.

Illegaly, as Obama never got Congressional approval. Congress is the only entity that can declare war.
So, our immediate intervention without Congressional approval must have been critical to prevent an imminent attack on the US?

wow, I didn't realize President Obama was that powerful. Just his mere words were enough to make Mubarak relinquish power. Of course it had nothing to do with the millions of Egyptians protesting, or the army's refusal to quell the protests......

Galt is guessing, as usual.
Private insurers have profitability at stake when processing forms. To think that initial forms & subsequent refilings are more than Medicare is ridiculous.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, administrative costs in Medicare are only about 2 percent of operating expenditures. Defenders of the insurance industry estimate administrative costs as 17 percent of revenue.
Galt has opinions.

He keeps trying to exchange it as a fact.
