<quoted text>They love Bush in Africa -
Popular in Africa: Bush has given more aid than any other US president
When President Bush came to power in 2001, the US spent $1.4bn a year on humanitarian and development aid in Africa. By 2006, the figure had quadrupled to $5.6bn a year. And it is likely to get bigger. The centerpiece of Mr Bush's aid to Africa is the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Pepfar), a five-year,$15bn Aids prevention and treatment programme launched in 2003. His most recent budget proposes doubling the funding to $30bn over the next five years.

Is that the 'charity' you were referring to? Our hard earned tax dollars?
As for the 'okay under Bush, bad under Obama?' I was asking that question with regards to the NSA spying.
"I put the program in place to protect the country, and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed," Bush said in the interview, which is scheduled to air on Monday afternoon. "I think there needs to be a balance [between security and privacy] and as the president described, there is a proper balance."
You keep talking about bush. Didn't you get any this past weekend?

and yes, the days with Bush as president now seem like the good old days--it was tough to fill jobs--not enough candidates vs what we have now: employers not hiring because they are bracing for obamacare and more regulations and many americans have stopped looking or are forever underemployed.
Obama's legacy will have our grandchildren living in districts like in the Hunger Games.
Did Bush's secret service guards go with them? OMG OMG the costs!!!!

The in mates they use in those programs are the low risk, non violent types. But I'm not sure what this has to do with my story. It's not the inmates Forest service personnel are checking for guns.

Correctly:
The subjectively calculated unemployment rate using artificially decreasing numbers of unemployed is lower.
Now, how about you tell us how many people are working age, how many are ACTUALLY disabled, how many are studying full time, and tell us what the factual unemployment rate is.
The rte & how it is calculated has not changed.

Your post, like all of your posts, is irrelevant & Pathetic.

It helps when you looks at things objectively.
Better wait until after January 1 before praising the merits of Obamacare. Many Democrats are scared s---less.

Also, best to wait until next year before praising the merits of a reformed Wall Street when the Feds unplug the printing presses.

Not sure what the "numerous other" accomplishments are. Unless you mean the Middle East is imploding, suspicion and distrust is growing domestically and abroad after spying on his enemies and his approval ratings are plummeting mainly among students and independents.

Can you be more specific?

<quoted text>
And now the whole story
"In 1995, Paul passed the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) boards on his first attempt and earned board-certification under the ABO for a decade. In 1997, to protest the ABO's decision to grandfather in older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify, Paul, along with 200 ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO). Paul's ophthalmology board is not officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties(ABMS). The NBO was incorporated in 1999, but he allowed it to be dissolved in 2000 after not filing the required paperwork with the Kentucky Secretary of State's office. Paul later recreated the board in September 2005, three months before his certification from the ABO was scheduled to expire. His ABO certification lapsed on December 31, 2005. Paul has since been certified by the NBO"
Paul then appointed himself president of the group, which he named the National Board of Ophthalmologists, and better yet, declared his wife (not a doctor) VP and his father-in-law secretary.

Rand Paul is a fraud. Always has been,. always will be. " Oh No, I don't want to have to be re-certified".

Rand Paul might as well advertised : "I am Board certified. I should know, I certified myself and my wife agreed".

Eman - dumber than sh*t defending this crap.

Fruitcake political skank Sarah Palin thinks that she can win by creating her own "independent party" . A party of one? with maybe two ogling visitors;Rush Limbaugh and Todd?!? Bahahahaaaaaaaaa! "The Republican Party received a stern warning from Sarah Palin in a recent Fox News interview, when she threatened to leave the GOP to start the Freedom Party. She said she would leave the GOP if they continued to abandon the "principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan," and join forces with commentator Mark Levin to offer the nation a third option that acknowledged the “Libertarian streak that much of us have.”
