<quoted text>Me neither. And I invested out in the Clinton admin. Anyone that had a clue had to see this was never going to end well. I traveled all over the country at that time and could not believe the amount of housing and businesses popping up in a weeks' time. I kept asking "who is buying these houses"? where are all the people coming from? Why is this happening? I was just a working schmuck then with a good job-so I started investing out of the country-because like I said-this was never going end well.
It's called capitalism son.

You know, the stuff you cons have been promoting and somehow irrationally tie to the Constitution? Well, my Constitution anyway, not yours.

You really are out of the loop to claim to be reasonable.
Obama spoke in front of the United Nations TWO WEEKS after the attack still blaming the video. Even Hillary and Panetta admitted a week earlier it was a terrorist attack.
Horseshit, I heard him on the 12th or 13th describe it as an "act of terror".

By "loop" you must be referring to the O'Reilly "Spin 'til they puke" Zone.

But has to be approved by 3/4 of the states or 38.

Seriously? You can't see that if Obama had admitted to a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 after announcing to everyone on the campaign trail he personally had al Qaeda on the run because he killed bin Laden that he wouldn't look ridiculous just weeks before the election?
He just looked ridiculous instead after the election because everyone knew he lied to win the election.
That makes a lot of people angry - reasonable people.
People were angry when Romney bowed out son.

Fart news couldn't believe what they were reporting was wrong.

The hypocrisy of the left; the transformation from 'child', protected under the law, to 'intrusive organism', occurs at the whim of a mother.

<quoted text> Won't speak for Galt but when asked what I thought I said let them fail. Somebody will buy up the pieces and things will move on. More than likely we would be far ahead of where we are now economically.
So, you would have let the big banks fail , big corporations fail , let the country fall into a Great Depression and then do nothing but hope and pray 'someone' will come to save the day?

That was a dumb comparison.

<quoted text>poster Death of Tenzing is just another low informed voter who is stuck on "but, it's all Bush's fault, Obama inherited a mess."
meanwhile, Kenyans are upset that he won't be visiting his place of birth during his gazillion dollar vacation this summer with Moochelle and the girls and their 100 closest BFFs.
What eludes them is Bush "inherited" a recession after the dot-com bubble burst. The same dot-com bubble Clinton capitalized on and, luckily, was able to exit the stage before it went boom.

So Bush basically got stuck with the dot-com crash and 9/11 right after Clinton said, "Exit stage right!" like Snagglepuss.

"But you conveniently overlooked the part about "Democrats promoting and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac". And you conveniently overlooked the part about the "economy taking off after the Bush tax cuts". So, basically, you are wrong."
so let's start with how a Republican Congress somehow let Democrats protect F&F.
and then we can go on to how the Bush tax cuts did nothing for our economy. did plenty for China's economy, but a big failure at home.
lol! That's what I keep telling them! So by their 'logic,' they must feel really empowered to do something since 2010.

And yet, nothing.

It's as if they're ok now.

<quoted text>and your point is? Hillary Clinton was born there in one of the most affluent suburbs of Chicago, and yet she is poor? like all democrats? is this what you are trying to say? Your cut and paste forgot to mention that it has no retail base for taxes. So they really soak the working guy. Before O'bama left office in Illinois that pushed a law through that people who don't have a pot to piss in, nor have ever worked in their lives deserve public housing in places like Park Ridge.
You failed to read the entire link to Park Ridge or you really lied about knowing the town. The town did have a industrial/ retail base with its traditional brick-making business as a core industry to the town's development. And now you're telling me that you oppose U S Constitution civil right equal housing laws . A pewrson ought to have a right to live wherever he damn well pleases and not be forced by the prejudice or racism of others to live someplace else.

She lied and is also grossly incompetent. She DID get the requests for more security in Libya - which has been proven - and she DID deny ever having seen them. That's her friggin' job to see requests for help from an embassy and protect it!
That whole debacle makes me extremely angry.
We STILL have no answers whatsoever as to why this happened and who is responsible. This president ALWAYS promises answers but NEVER delivers.
Good thing bushie boys incursion into iraq doesn't get you upset.

In fact, it's nice of you to be so accepting of that decision.
