Rush Limpbals on Thanksgiving:
"The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed. With all the great expectations and high hopes, it failed. And self-reliance, rugged individualism, free enterprise, whatever you call it, resulted in prosperity that they never dreamed of."
All those drugs short circuited his brain.
The far Lefts lack of knowledge of history is amusing if not alarming.

I agree that the U.S. will suffer a loss of credibility but the blame will be placed on Congress...not Obama. The world will see him, just as Cameron, as the leader who wanted to do the right thing but whose hands were tied by Congress.
As far as the 2002 authorization, Bush lied...soldiers died. That is the exact reason we should not be rushing into anything.
And FF to 2013, No Bush is POTUS, al qeada appreciates (ha) our invasion of Libya and NOW already in the Mediterranian are boots on boats with missiles on board for Syria.

That sure to hell is NOT Congresses fault.

Idiot.

following that logic, the reasons Romney lost wre Bush's Iraq fiasco and the 13 EMBASSIES attacked during Bush's administration.

'13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News"

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bob-cesca/13-be...

I'm curious, could you please explain why the different reactions:

1. President Obama's staff releases a picture of him in the oval office with his foot on the desk.
teabaggers and Faux news complain he has no respect for the office

2. President Bush's staff releases a picture of him, kicked back in his chair wiht BOTH FEET on the desk.
not a beep from anyone complaining about his lack of respect for the office.

3. One consulate is attacked during President Obama's tenure, where the ambassador was warned not to go.
Teabaggers and Fox news implement a campaign to smear the President and call for impeachment.

4. 13 embassies are attacked during the Bush administration, not a word of complaint from the teabaggers or fox news.

5. In the face of the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression and 2 wars (started by the previous administration), the deficit is increased by about $5 trillion dollars during President Obama's administration. President Obama includes the costs of the Iraq war into the budget and subsequent deficit, something the previous administration didn't do in order to hide the cost Teabaggers and Fox news have a field day complaining about runaway spending

6. the Deficit is doubled from $5.5 trillion to $11 trillion. and not only that, Bush manages to keep the cost of the Iraqi war out of the budget through special appropriations. Projected cost of the war range between $4 to $6 TRILLION, almost as much as the deficit increased under President Obama

So my question to you is why the different reactions?

what is the difference between both men?

Interesting you would invoke homeland security. We ran that dyke janet neopolitan out of this State years ago.....:-)
Yeah and you bozo head worms of a pinfeather have had plenty of time to restaff that office.

What's the excuse for THAT (yet more) SLCAKERticking?

It's really pathetic listening to the Three Stooges (Obama, Kerry & the Pawn Susan Rice)- all liars & back stabbers of the military, try to make a case to put our forces & country in harms way.

Our standing in the world is worse now than it was under Bush.

Our Commander in Chief doesn't even know how to say "Corpsman" - he thinks they are corpses - the idiot.

pathetic...

I won't be listening to the moron's speech Tuesday.

SYDNEY/CANBERRA (Reuters)- Australia's conservative leader Tony Abbott swept into office in national elections on Saturday as voters punished the outgoing Labor government for six years of turbulent rule and for failing to maximize the benefits of a now fading mining boom.
Abbott, a former boxer, Rhodes scholar and trainee priest, promised to restore political stability, cut taxes and crack down on asylum seekers arriving by boat.
"From today I declare that Australia is under new management and Australia is once more open for business," Abbott told jubilant supporters in Sydney.
Abbott, 55, built up a strong opinion poll lead on the back of promises to rein in government spending, scrap an unpopular tax on carbon emissions, and stop the flow of refugee boats arriving in Australia's northwest.
Trainee priest? Trained by Fr. O'Malley? Oh that's just fuggin great, then of course he became a boxer after wrestling with OMalley.

Go back and listen to Obama's speech from August 30, the actual speech and not the media spin. Obama clearly stated that he has made the decision to attack Syria.
I suggest YOU go back and listen to the speech. He DID NOT say that he had made a decision to attack Syria.

"...the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. Now, I have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that norm. But as I’ve already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options. We have consulted with allies. We’ve consulted with Congress. We’ve been in conversations with all the interested parties."

I would NEVER, under any circumstances, vote for a republican again. Never, ever. I believe in equal right for all. I believe in women's rights. I believe in taking care of the less fortunate amongst us. I do not believe in elitism,etc. In other words, I support everything Republicans are against.

The toxic plague poisons of flock-ing MESSes of Ignorance.

Example?

Kids A, B,C, D, E, F and G all decide to take AP classes while in high school. They come from homes with modest, tightly balanced and budgeted incomes-some just a tad but over "US scribed poverty levels".
Kids H, I and J take them too...from two wage earner families, not quite as constrained to tightly provised budgets.
Kids L and M are in the same class as well-from lower income, more givverment dependent type backgrounds.

ALL are kids. ALL are taking the same class.

Why is it that kids L and M, are "rewarded monetarily, for future edu enhancements" while ALLLLLL the rest of the kids, receive NOTHING for doing the SAMe (if not MORE) amount of work.

The TOXIC poison of "affirmative action" libuhrulTIC givverment entitleMentalCase entitleMentality BULLCHIT.
