NSA leaker Edward Snowden damaged the “security of the country,” former President George W. Bush said in an interview.

Bush did not directly say whether he thinks Snowden can be labeled a “traitor” but said he knows the country has been hurt as a result of the leaks.

“I think he damaged the security of the country,” Bush said on CNN while visiting Africa, adding that President Barack Obama will deal with the situation.

How about we look at some numbers.
316 million total population.
86.4 million under 20.
40.5 million over 65.
1.6 million disabled.
21 million in universities.
130 million full time jobs.
8.2 million part time jobs.
The ratio of full time to part time jobs is 15.8.
Your economic recovery is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
The real percentage of people available for work but not working is 17 percent.
The annual deficit is 1.3 trillioin, down from 1.6 trillion it grew to before the TEA Party came to Congress in 2011.
The total debt is 17 trillion. The US economy is only 15 trillion.
The debt grows at 8 percent each year, while the calculated economic growth is only 2 percent. The real (private) economy that actually pays for everything is stagnant, and is only about 12 trillion.
So, the debt is one and a half times as big as what pays it.
And, the debt grows at almost 8 percent a year.
A stagnant economy has to pay a debt that is one and a half times its size and grows at 8 percent every year.
An idiot can tell you this system will collapse. What we need to do to fix it is to stop borrowing money. That is the 1.3 trillion dollars every year.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Since you posted all this data all the knuckle dragging Liberals will all have to go take a marijuana break to let it all sink in...

ok, i'll give it up.
i would prefer adoption to abortion. i would prefer anything to abortion. but that's not realistic. and as much as you seem to have you head up your ass at times, i know you're not stupid, so you have to know that legal abortions protect women while making abortion illegal will only end up killing as many women as it does the unborn.
we have to find a middle ground. you're never going to completely get what you want. the unborn will still die no matter what laws the Red states try to pass.
and that 'abortion should be decided by and voted on by the people in each state' is all well and good...as long as women are the only ones who get to vote.
You make a good point "the unborn will still die no matter what laws the Red states try to pass" but fail to recognize many democrats are also anti-abortion, especially deeply religious blacks and Hispanics.

But two wrongs never make a right. We can't condone disrespecting life as a society because some individuals will make that decision themselves.

Even so, I actually appreciate your thoughtful and respectful response.

If only we could all do that. Be thoughtful and respectful to our differences of opinions.

Rush Limbaugh after Obama's inauguration:

“I disagree fervently with the people on our [GOP] side of the aisle who have caved and who say,‘Well, I hope he succeeds...I hope he fails."

Pretty much sums up the anti-American scumbag.

Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to "cut his [Barack Obama's] nuts out" for "talking down to black folks" by giving moral lectures to African-Americans that was picked up on a hot microphone a few years ago.
Why would Rev. Jackson say that? Doesn't he want to address the problem to solve it? Doesn't he have morals too?
At least Obama gets kudos for trying.
Bill Cosby was silenced pretty quickly too.
What's up with that?
You'd think all the rallies would be the perfect opportunity to address some of the real problems.
Yes? No?
Instead of calling it the Race Card, let's call it the Race Ball.

As long as the Race Ball is kept in play, the game draws a paying audience. But if that Race Ball should ever be dropped and allowed to roll to a stop on the sidelines somewhere, the Poverty Pimps lose all income, status and power.

Keeping the ball in the air, in play between Sharpton, Jackson and Eric Racist Holder keeps the paying audience's attention and the spoils of a racist war pouring into racist coffers.

The Race Ball never rests just as their is never rest for the wicked.

Do your own research.
Then, she shouldn't post her "opinions" as facts. Perhaps she should preface everything with "IMO". It does, however, explain why you people seem so stupid. Facts don't seem to matter to Rethugs.

Not interested because the circumstances of Obama's birth are not provable, either way, so a waste of time.
