<quoted text>All Preibus is doing by threatening to pull out of debates sponsored by NBC and CNN is threatening that the GOP will finally stop being the Party of stupid. Anyone who is smart enough to be Chairman of the Republican National Committee ought to be smart enough to see that the way to defeat the Democrats is to avoid letting liberals like Anderson Cooper, James Lehrer, Martha Raddatz, Candy Crowley and Robert Schieffer set the Republican agenda for the 2016 presidential election through the questions they ask during the primary season debates. Finally the GOP is listening to the conservatives. There isn't any need to appease liberals, we have nothing in common with them. I repeat: NOTHING.

So did the broads that tried to bring charges,they all just slithered away: mission accomplished. LOL and so did Gloria. It was a scandal set up by David Axelrod and a lie. If you knew anything about Chicago you would know how this works. Poof the broads are gone-but not before they were paid for their efforts--charity from the liberals:).

<quoted text>Let's give Bill Clinton some credit here-Among President Clinton's first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases. How many died because of Clinton's Ban?
BS, it was that way when I was in in the 70's and 80's and it was that way before WWII. Soldiers at Schofield Barracks were not armed when they came under attack by the Japanese.

It would be more elevating to see them debate O'bama the idiot--they would probably let him use his teleprompter too.:) "um ah well see there I I I I chatter chatter um high me is" states O'bama.

remember when Cain said there was no settlement and then he had to backtrack when he got caught out?

now why would he need to lie about it if there was nothing there?

got an excuse for that one too?

Bring them back, they are smarter than Barack Hussein & Erich Holder and Timmy Geithner. What a triumverate all three couldn't find their behinds, if someone gave them a hint where it was? Where is landowner voting when it's needed?

Why should people in their 20's be covered for hip replacement?
No disagreement here.

Individual policies should be a la carte with respect to coverage.

Group policies paid primarily by the employer may be a different matter.

By the way, Bo Jackson had hip replacement surgery at age 29.

Who was going to pay for Iraq, Afghanistan, NCLB, Medicare prescription plan, Bush's '08 "stimulus" you stupid fck?
The same people who will pay for Obama's "stimulus".
Cross-generational debt is inter-generational theft. The debt we accrued during WWII was paid off long before the Greatest Generation even thought about retirement.
Obama's Economic Stimulus program was paid for through our own government tax revenue unlike Bush's two wars run on money borrowed from China. Bush's Medicare Prescription Drug Plan for seniors was never paid for, but under Obamacare ,'Bush's Medicare Prescription Drug Plan' for seniors will be paid for just one thing a 10%'sin' tax on tanning salons ---Anyone really think that a small fee on someone wealthy enough to afford going to a tanning booth will bankrupt them or prevent them from still splurging on a tanning salon?

Obama has already delayed portions of ObamaKKKare in an attempt to influence the 2014 elections.

One other point.

Delay of the employer mandate makes it impossible to determine eligibility for subsidies under the individual mandate, an open invitation to fraud.

<quoted text>And yet this Democrat hasn't been arrested-or even fired-what is the matter with California?
Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference Tuesday with another accuser — this one a nurse who claims Filner tried to get affection from her in exchange for his help in getting treatment for a wounded former Marine. She is one of more than ten women who have come forward with accusations against Filner.
The path to removing Filner became more clear this week after the failure of an effort to undermine the recall campaign. Can you imagine Sonic? a democrat trying to rape a woman so one of our brave soldiers could get treated? how sick is that?
Filner may not have done anything illegal with respect to these women, although the FBI is reportedly investigating him for unrelated financial irregularities, including extortion of developers.

Filner is just a lecher, a grabber, a hugger, and a pig.

Well, then conservatives better not look to Texas--two more Texas state troopers were caught raping two women in a car that they stopped for throwing a cigarette out the window. The Texas troopers called it 'legal search & seizure'. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/08/04/1228... #

I'm not pleased at all. We only have the word of those who ordered the executions that they were justified. I wouldn't expect them to come out and say "Well, we were pretty sure these were bad guys but we can't be run the risk of putting them on trial 'cause we may be wrong."
For the same reason I also have no assurance that OBL was really a terrorist mastermind and not just some wealthy kook with visions of grandeur being taken advantage of by real terrorist masterminds.
Clinton didn't take him when he had opportunities because he had no legal grounds by which to take him.
That is possible and would make it even worse.

Seems that OBL could have easily been taken alive.

But if they are all dead, we will never know.
