Say it all you want. More proof what a bent out of shape partisan ding a ling you come off as!! Just one year ago, Obama was condemned for supporting the Arab Spring uprising that resulted in the nation’s first democratic elections ever. But today the same a-holes (you) are condemning him for not speaking out. What you simpletons fail to realize is that, if Obama were to more vocally advocate on behalf of the protesters, he would give the Morsi government ammunition to dismiss them as pawns of the Great Satan in the United States. But something tells me you're used to this kind of double-speak bullshit. Anything to complain, hm? All symptoms of your intensely serious case of ODS!! You are a total waste of time and bandwidth!! But you are amusing in a tedious sort of way. Speaking of growing up, when you stop whining and stamping your feet each and every time things don't go your way we'll talk. You may resume your chronic whining now MM!!!
The inept one should've kept his anarchy promoting mouth shut then, as well as he did the other day while hiding in the vineyard.

Obama already intervened in Egypt, creating the crisis.
At this point the US should just suspend military aid to Egypt and let them resolve their own problems in their traditional manner.
You mean the way British decided the American Revolution?

<quoted text>The Libertarian party needs to capture a good sized city or any state. Louisiana was ripe for E Z pickins after the Katrina debacle which was, or should have been, a huge embarrassment for the R's and D's.
Until the party proves itself, it will remain an attitude rather than a force.
Registering (I) or (L) in my state leaves the voter standing on the sidelines during the primary season and that's not a good
thing.
Louisiana is owned by the Petro-chemical industry. Only a conscious effort by the electorate can change that.

You're only sidelined from the Demopublican primaries and the point of alternate parties is to NOT vote D or R.

Someday y'all will all see that both parties are criminal organizations only beholdin' to the special interests who fund them. Sure, the Democrats are all for food stamps 'cause they care about the poor. Bull, they're under pressure from Agribusiness and retailers like Walmart and McDonalds.

You should train it to say CBS News, The New York Times and ABC News too.

They reported security was removed from that embassy. And this president hasn't given the American people any reason as to why.

Sounds to me like you're the trained parrot.

Oh, for heaven's sakes...
I said it was post #965628! But for the third time, here was the original post. Now read the darn thing once and for all!
Senior Republicans have all but conceded that they won’t end up defunding Obamacare in a continuing resolution to keep the federal government open after the money runs out on Sept. 30.
They are considering a strategy to pass a two-month continuing resolution to keep government funded at existing levels until, roughly, the debt limit is reached. Then they would offer a sequester replacement in exchange for delaying or defunding Obamacare in order to avoid economic disaster.

You can find other sources but that's up to you. I'm done.
That isn't GOP congresspersons wanting to let Obamacare run its course and fail on its own merits, that's GOP congresspersons realizing shutting the government down is political suicide.

No wonder I didn't recognize it as "proof" of your BS claim.

Special Forces "site security team" in Libya? Did the guy have a name___was he actually in Libya?
The sole purpose of the Benghazi mission was to provide diplomatic cover for the nearby CIA base (annex). We still have no idea why Chris Stephans was in Benghazi that evening, that information remains classified.
And once again doll, David Petreaus was the CIA director at the time and we're not privy to his testimony regarding Benghazi. The CIA people on the ground that evening did not report to the POTUS, the State Department or the US Military. The CIA has no military like chain of command, only the director reports to the POTUS.
WASHINGTON — Four State Department officials were removed from their posts on Wednesday after an independent panel criticized the “grossly inadequate” security at a diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, that was attacked on Sept. 11, leading to the deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

I should imagine you WOULD be happy. That's at least 5 figures higher than Tecans are taught to count. So here Tonto's question: are the "six figures" letters or numbers, cause there big difference between 100,000 and eleven?
Too bad in REALITY, 100,000k would BARELY cover some mortgages and all the usual bills these days huh?

<quoted text>As a Democrat, I am glad Pence is taking a stand against Obamacare and you are right Bush was considered a Pseudo Liberal too by many conservatives, but you got to realize too that most Democrats in Indiana align to the Right politically than their Democrats in the rest of the country who are considered Pseudo Liberal and to the far left and why Indiana is considered a conservative state(Red State).
Politics of Indiana
Historically, Republicans have been strongest in the eastern and central portions of the state, as well as the suburbs of the state's major cities. Democrats have been strongest in the northwestern and southern parts of the state along with the major cities. However, outside of Indianapolis, the Chicago suburbs, and Bloomington, the state's Democrats tend to be somewhat more conservative than their counterparts in the rest of the country, especially on social issues.

tell me something i don't know.

but 'taking a stand'? lying about the cost is taking a stand?

no wonder only 24% of us will admit to being a republican.

The real estate market is heavy with investors everywhere, many of whom are cash buyers (not F&F) with no place else to go with their money. They buy the house and either make a few cosmetic changes before reselling or rent out for a couple of years waiting for the market to go up.
The mountain of cash waiting on the sidelines for suitable investments is enormous.
That would a surprise to see the market go back up like it was--as it had been SO WAY over inflated for such a LONG, long time...WAY out of sync and way beyond the REAL working class average earnings.

Kinda think your prediction is jusssstt a little dreamland gilded Galt.

He sometimes seems compelled to bow to the barking for intervention, mostly from your side. Maybe y'all should just shut the fck up about intervention or quit claiming you want a small, constitutional government.
There is no call for intervention from the Republican side except from McCain and Graham, two outcasts who speak more for Obama than for the Republican Party.
