That will be $42.50. Feel free to take a banana from petty cash....
so deploying the 22nd Marine Amphibious Unit to Lebanon was not an overt military action?

but you are partially right, after terrorists bombed the Marine Barracks killing 241 Marines, Reagan did do nothing.

or how about taking sides in the Iraq/Iran war, providing chemical, biological and nerve agents to Saddam, intel on large concentrations of Iranian troops to maximize the lethality of using those weapons and providing Naval escorts for Iraqi oil tankers...have you ever heard of the USS Stark? try googling it?
again so that is not taking overt military action?

or how about supplying arms and munitions to a known South American terrorist group, responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians, including 7 American missionary nuns and a priest?

That comment is FALSE; F.D.R. put a stop to the Boon Bust of banks with his Glass Stegall Act. Republican immediately began to attack it and had water it down enough so that in the 80’s we started once again to experience Boon Bust, with the savings and loans fiascos.
1999 virtually nothing remained of F.D.R.’s Act and from 2000 to 2008 Boon Bust came back with a fury, republican’s Great Recession. Deregulations was the bulwark motivating factor. Same factors that produced the republican’s 1929 Great Depression.
Obama sets out to reinstate F.D.R.’s policies with the Volker Rule. Passed May 2010 which republicans ONCE AGAIN seek to destroy it. Do You Have Any Idea Why They Would Want To Do That? Stop sipping your Tea and observe Why http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali...

End is near for the beginning of a prohibition against the dysfunctional intoxicating Tea.
Republican chasm continues to widen. Perhaps the established conservative republicans will finally emulate our for fathers of 1773 and cast out the dysfunctional Tea Party.
Tea Rally back in April, Senator Ted Cruz {R Tea Party} of Texas, taunts the traditionalist republicans after the Senate rejects back ground checks on gun control bill. Cruz along with the all Tea Party members threatened to filibuster away this bill. Established conservative republican considered it more prudent and wiser to let it go to a vote. This would garnish a few democratic votes. Which is what eventually happened. Cruz considers republicans that choose that method of governmental as “Squishy”. Our way or the highway is all that is required. Wall Street Journal Editorial retweeted John McCain {R Traditionalist}; “ Would it have been right for us to not even debate, in light of the Newtown Massacre” Depth of chasm deepens.

you want so badly to paint Obama as just another 'Bush ' that you ignore the significant differences in the Obama moderate , multi-lateral foreign policy approach. For one, Obama hasn't shifted from his belief that economic sanctions, U S pressure, and promoting international solidarity in support of international norms of order and war can still work to force Assad to end his chemical and nuclear programs--- it worked in Iraq with Hussein ending his own chemical and nuke programs ,but Bush&Cheney chose to deny that success so as to promote preventive war instead. I have yet to see one bit of evidence that Obama has given up on a multi-lateral approach and choose a military unilateralism instead. "Far from callous moral indifference, however, President Obama’s foreign policy appears to be motivated by a profound commitment to prudence—the acceptance of a fact that makes neo-cons writhe: that America’s ability to accomplish good is limited and that the world is complicated. In an interview at the end of January, President Obama described his struggle with the relationship between U.S. power and the evil of the world.“A big chunk of my day,” he explained, is occupied by news of war, terrorism, ethnic clashes, violence done to innocents. And what I have to constantly wrestle with is where and when can the United States intervene or act in ways that advance our national interest, advance our security, and speak to our highest ideals and sense of common humanity. And as I wrestle with those decisions, I am more mindful probably than most of not only our incredible strengths and capabilities, but also our limitations.

Time to paint ourselves as the Indians of 1773 and run down to the voting booths this 2014 and cast out the Tea. Out unto the waters of political oblivion. Republicans od sound mind and integrity will help us in that endeavor.
Senator Susan Collins {R Traditionalist} of Main,“finds it baffling that it’s a small minority of our caucus, that is holding up going to conference, when our party for years, has argued that we need to have a budget. Without a House conference we can’t possibly complete action on it.”
Senator Marco Rubio {R Tea Party} of Florida argues that we should continue to support the ideology that ONE Senator can have the power to hold the USA Hostage and Ransom it off to what that Senator desires.
Democrats counter with the need of raising the debt ceiling to cover the cost of the Congresses’ expenditures. Republicans inability to produce a bill for a budget, mandates this process of hand to mouth budgeting scenarios. Ideologies of the Tea Party pirates lurking in the shadows .“Our Way Or The Highway reverberating through our Congressional Sacred Hallways.

You fail to admit the facts that employers have been cutting permanent jobs and shifting to part-time temps for a long time before Obamacare was ever passed. It has been a well-planned company management policy to keep laboring wages depressed and cut safety and health investments to the bone to preserve more profits going to executive salaries and benefits and top shareholders no matter whether the company may be failing .

Did the White House Help Plan the Syrian Chemical Attack?

There is a growing volume of new evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its sponsors and supporters — which makes a very strong case, based on solid circumstantial evidence, that the August 21, 2013, chemical strike in the Damascus suburbs was indeed a pre-meditated provocation by the Syrian opposition.

You would have to be blind or simply naive if you think that by not chastising the use of Chemical Warfare Weapons will is a nice thing to do. This will only serve to have an increase in their use in this civil war and all other wars and terrorist acts coming up. Next you will be saying we should not chastise those that use Nuclear weapons. Its ok lets be nice. Yes definitely naïve and irresponsible.

Chasm widens sucking in the right wing nuts and Teabaggers alike. Traditionalist conservatives are spitting out the poisonous Tea.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right wing nuts. In all places, Arizona! A previous bestial of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the intoxicated Teabaggers and their minions. Carrying it so far as not to answerer any of the Tea and right wing nuts questions and shooting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm where the Tea and the right wing nuts are being pushed into.
Their Senate President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. All these right wing nuts and the Teabaggers, had to say , was similar to what we find on these threads. Right wing nuts and Teabaggers, Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks. No substance or valid argument. Sputtering and babbling.. Now we know where these urchins get their cue’s from. Rushing Foxes with their Pied Piper’s melodies of “A La Propaganda.”
The chasm widens..

Chasm widens down to the deeper levels in the dysfunctional republican party.
Thomas Doherty, chief PR man for former Governor George Pataki, has lost faith in the republican party. Receiving information {July 2013} that the republicans were going to walk the immigration bill to death.
So discouraged he has publicly stated he will be leaving his party of 32 years.
Doherty, no liberal, has come to the conclusion “That my party has elements within it that dislike homosexuals and think America is still in the 1940’s. AND while we talk about liberty and freedom, that liberty and freedom only seem to be acceptable for some.”
This is representing the growing oppositional forces that are increasing the rifts within the republican party. All the way down to its fundamental infrastructures of support. Doherty goes on to say about the republicans,“ Their rigidity is killing them. It’s either purity or you are anathema”!

Chasm Widens
A prominent republican lobbyist and former ambassador to Belgium for the G.W. Bush administration stated “ Too many ideologues have come in. You don’t win by what they are doing”
Jeb Bush put this way.“Ronald Reagan and his own father would have a hard time fitting into the contemporary republican party.” Citing that an Orthodoxy ideology presently, has a strangle hold on the republican party.
Jeb Bush goes further to say; “ All too often we’re associated with being anti-everything. Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates, even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted and unwelcome in our party.”
Load bearing cornerstones of the republican party are suffering under the weight of components of the Tea and its corrosive effects to all that is America.

John your comment as usual FALSE! Nothing new there for a habitual liar.
Right Wing cries too fast, too fast, too fast, slooooow down..
“It Is All About The Economy Stupid”{Trivia;} who had that on his presidential desk?
Following inspired by the CBO report.
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid. Republicans
All this crap is meaningless when people can't find decent jobs and when the financial markets are on life support from the Fed.
