Are you just plain stupid or pretending to be just plain stupid?
The world changed on September 11, 2001. Lest you forgot. Two wars ensued with a significant number of Democrats' blessings.
The world changed again when the house of cards came crashing down due to bad lending loans forced upon banks by the Clinton administration and Democrats telling us Fannie and Freddie was "doing just fine" all the way up until the 11th hour.
What did you expect the financial outcome to be?
What has Obama had to deal with on his plate that increased the budget threefold since Bush besides his personal agenda which put the economy and jobs on the back burner for two years and a stimulus that did nothing to improve anything?
REMINDER:

1. For the first time in the history of the United States BUSH unilaterally invaded a sovereign country without justification dragging us into two unwinnable wars.

2. BUSH created the HUD "zero down payment" mortgage which created the "bad lending" loans that followed.

You just can't seem to embrace what is yours.

Sorry, folks. It's my fault you're going to be put through this again.
You should have done that in the first place. The juvenile Democrats can't try to spoof you that way. Morons like Dumb Dave & lily have nothing else to do, but after you register, they can't use your exact name.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

let's finish this.
MLK: Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

he's talking about a republican.
Did MLK know the racial slurs Johnson used when making this claim?
Apparently not or didn't care.

According to Malcom X, MLK sold out the Civil Rights movement prior to their march on Washington DC

John Wayne after John F. Kennedy's election:
"I didn't vote for him but he's my president, and I hope he does a good job."

THIS IS THE ONLY EXCEPTION...

It was in 2002. My bad. Was thinking 2008 when she said Obama was not qualified to become the president.

But did you see the video of her speech on the Senate floor in 2002?

You liberals sure do flip-flop a lot.

Actually, the plants will not grow and the soil will blow.
But the larger point is that extremely large areas of the landscape are defaced.
But, tell the truth. You think the desert is worthless.
PS: Houses with solar panels on the roof look like shit. Solar panels look like shit.
Sure, have it your way. Continue to live in "La La Land" and leave the desert untouched. Just continue on a path of environmental destruction by depleting our resources and poisoning our water. It's really hard to face the future when you are looking backwards but that seems to be how you people like to live. Hasn't worked out too well for you so far.

No, I am not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker,” Obama said, at a media conference in Senegal.

The US leader also said that he had not called the Chinese or Russian presidents to plead with them to hand Snowden over, because his government was using regular legal channels for an extradition case.

“I have not called President Xi (Jinping) personally or President (Vladimir) Putin personally. The reason is, number one, I shouldn’t have to. This is something that routinely is dealt between law enforcement officials in various countries.”

Obama said that the US and China relationships were broad and ranged over many issues and that he would not get down to “wheeling and dealing” with Russia and China over one extradition case

I am still trying to follow your logic. So trash scattered across a land surface would be good as it has no environmental impact.
