Just how GD stupid are you?
"1) There was effective oversight over the RA program."
And that explains how the testimony of the Director of OFHEO in 2003 about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac keeping fraudulent books to hide the CRA failure was heeded; and how the Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsed the eocnomy after two years of oversight by Democrats.

"2) Bush lied to Congress concerning the Iraq threat & nuclear weapons"
Where did Valerie Plame say they were?
And, because Congress has access to the same intelligence, it must have been quite a conspiracy to get the Democrats to support the war in Iraq, right? You're not one of those conspiracy nuts, are you? Perhaps there was a conspiracy where the Republicans would give no effective oversight of the Democrats' CRA program to the Democrats in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq.

"3)How did the Democrats do any of that crap when they controlled no committees & were in the minority in Congress."
(see above, conspiracy nut)

"4) Two years after the Democrats took the house would have been January of 2009, dumbass."
Ok. One year, 8 months,dumbass.

The Democrats' Marxist subprime CRA program collapsed the economy after one year and eight months of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.

Not once, not once, has Zimmerman expressed any remorse for committing murder. That guy is a menace to society and the jury let a killer go free.
He will never have a peaceful life, no matter how many yahoos buy him a gun. He's a murderer. He has destroyed two families by his careless and wreckless behavior.
Karma will fix him.
George's younger brother said "he changed that night and hasn't been the same since".

And he most certainly did express remorse in an interview after being charged.

You just don't want to know the truth. Good little liberals never do.

If you can't get anything done, try and change the measure of success:

House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal."
The Ohio Republican makes the comments on an interview aired Sunday on CBS "Face the Nation." He was responding to a question about how little Congress is doing these days.

Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."
After 39 failed attempts (!) to repeal Obamacare, it looks like Boehner sucks at repealing laws too.
Maybe his metric for success should be "most unpopular Congress ever," because if that's the measure, he'd be an unqualified success.

Nothing that Zimmerman might have said or not said would justify Trayvon's physical attack.
Nothing.
I disagree; Trayvon was threatened by Zimmermans pursuit. If anyone had a stand your ground case, it was the victim.

The first thing Zimmerman said after the shooting is "I screamed for help but no one came." When he was told his screaming was caught on a neighbor's cellphone, he said, "Thank God!"
If his intent was to murder Trayvon, why scream for help? Especially when Zimmerman had no way of knowing it would be heard in the background of a neighbor's cellphone? In fact, numerous neighbors called 911 because "someone is screaming for help."
The liberal media manipulates the easily manipulated to further this administration's liberal politics far too easily. That's why.
Zimmerman's a prove liar who had numerous anger issues. He said the screaming didn't sound like him; then he thought better of it. Why did the screaming stop when Trayvon was shot through the heart from extremely close range? Wouldn't Georgie Pudgy still be in need of help to call and ambulance, give CPR, tend to his own "massive" injuries. You believe him because he's whiter and and liar so you can obviously identify with the loser. BTW, did you know he was estranged from the family because he was a child molester?

In an emotional interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Trayvon Martin’s stepmother shattered her silence to discuss her absence in the courtroom and the toll her stepson’s death is having on her. Alicia Stanley and Tracy Martin, the deceased teen’s father, were engaged at the time of Trayvon’s death.
Though she claims no ill-will toward Sybrina Fulton – Trayon’s biological mother – saying “I want her to know that I never tried to take her place,” Stanley said she’s been raising Martin since he was three.
Stanley alleges Trayvon spent 90 percent of his time at the house she shared with Tracey, adding,“I’m the one at all the football games; I’m the one who took care of him when he was sick.” Her role shifted when Trayvon died. Stanley claims she wasn’t allowed to sit in the front row at her stepson’s funeral and has since been shunned by the man she planned to marry.
“They told me to ‘get in where I fit in,” Stanley said with tears in her eyes.“I can’t sit on the front row at my son’s funeral to see him home. That hurt me, that was the most painful thing they could do to me.”
Step parenting is a thankless job; if he was living with her and his father in Orlando; why then did they say he was visiting his father because he was suspended from school in Miami?

The bottom line is....despite our top marginal corporate tax rate of 35 percent the "effective corporate income tax rate in the U.S., a measure of the taxes a company pays as a percentage of its profit, averaged 27.7 percent from 2006 to 2009.

The Democrats' Marxist subprime CRA program collapsed the economy after one year and eight months of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.
In a November 2008 study, Federal Reserve economists Glenn Canner and Neil Bhutta analyzed mortgage-related data to assess such arguments and found no empirical evidence to support the claim that the CRA was a major contributor to the subprime crisis.

Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli has raised less than half as much cash as Democratic opponent Terry McAuliffe, with a prominent list of Republican donors sitting out this year’s most competitive U.S. political contest -- and in some cases switching sides.
The financial disadvantage four months before the election illustrates the difficulties confronting an attorney general who is campaigning on an economic growth plan yet is best known for his opposition to gay marriage and abortion.
“Mr. Cuccinelli’s very hard stance on some of the social issues is a concern for me,” said Virginia Beach developer Bruce L. Thompson, chief executive officer of Gold Key/PHR Hotels and Resorts, a financial backer of current Republican Governor Bob McDonnell who in May gave McAuliffe $25,000.
“I believe personally in a woman’s right to choose, but I also think from an economic development standpoint, we’re trying to attract businesses from other areas of the country, and we’re telling women that we’re going to regulate the way that they run their life? I just don’t think we can be exclusionary when it comes to women” and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals, Thompson said.

That Cucinelli is one sick in the head nutjob. Wants to outlaw oral sex, says homosexuals are soulless and doesn't want his child to have a social security number. He really needs to go away.

ROFLMAO.

I'm going to relate a story about a friend who retired from the Houston Police Department after spending a career in downtown Houston and took a job as a detective in Missouri City.
The "regugees" from New Orleans were coming. I told him over a cup of coffee one morning "I think you're going to see something you've never seen before." His exact words were, "We've got bad (n-word plural) in Houston. I think we can handle them."
Two weeks later I saw him again, and he was in shock.
As he put it, the (n-word plural) from New Orleans didn't even have a concept of authority.
I knew that. That's what I was trying to tell him.

Who's to say Trayvon Martin was any different than those so-called "refugees" from New Orleans that sent the crime rate skyrocketing through the stratosphere in every city they went to.

So who do you know who had a "vaginal probe" to determine if they were pregnant in all your years being a woman? Because I've never ever heard of such a thing - ever.

Transvaginal ultrasounds - which you liberals interpret as "vaginal probes" - are used primarily to detect fibroids and female reproductive problems.

The Wisconsin Senate bill stated:“An ultrasound on the pregnant woman using whichever transducer the woman chooses; provide a simultaneous oral explanation during the ultrasound including the number of unborn children and presence and location of the unborn child; display the ultrasound images so that the pregnant woman may view them; provide a medical description of the ultrasound images including the dimensions of the unborn child and a description of any viewable external features and internal organs of the unborn child; and provide a means for the pregnant woman to visualize any fetal heartbeat, in a quality consistent with current medical practice, and a simultaneous oral explanation of the visual display of the heartbeat in a manner understandable to a layperson (ultrasound requirements).”

So where did you liberal loons read anything about a "vaginal probe" in that description?

You people worry the hell out of me.
