Have you ever had a basic economics class?
The market crashed twice within a couple of weeks. The first crash was when it could not be ignored any longer that the interwoven investments were tied to worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages.
The second crash a couple of weeks later happened when the Democrat-controlled House refused to pass a bill to prop the failing banks up.
Both crashes happened in September, right after both conventions ended and the campaigning began.
It wasn't until after the election that the Democrats passed virtually the same bill they had rejected during the election campaign.
You really need to go get your money back from whatever institution pretended to educate you.
lol! So... when did they repeal CRA son?

You still haven't answer that question!!!

They screamed against a strike against Syria; now that it may not be necessary; they are screaming still. What are they screaming about? Do they want war or do they not? They don't know. Now the fat junkie Limbaugh is implying that the US used chemical weapons; and the resident dittoheads love that stuff. What stupid, stupid people, it's mind blowing.

Bipolar disorder was formerly called manic depression. It is a major affective disorder, or mood disorder, characterized by dramatic mood swings. Bipolar disorder is a serious condition, when mania causes sleeplessness, sometimes for days, along with hallucinations, psychosis, grandiose delusions, and/or paranoid rage.

Bipolar disorder is a complex genetic disorder. The mood swings associated with it alternate from major, or clinical, depression to mania or extreme elation. The mood swings can range from very mild to extreme, and they can happen gradually or suddenly within a timeframe of minutes to hours. When mood swings happen frequently, the process is called rapid cycling.

<quoted text>LOL! Well, you have to wait for them to crow how they were victorious and influenced Obama to make the 'right' choice.
And once they get tired of their self congratulatory back slapping, then they'll get on that bandwagon!
Along with the dramatic mood swings, patients with bipolar disorder may have disturbances in thinking. They may also have distortions of perception and impairment in social functioning.

Severity of symptoms varies with individuals who have bipolar disorder. While some people have a few symptoms, others have many that impair their ability to work and live a normal life. Don't tell yeah.:) He thinks he is noooooooormal.

very strange.
The post you responded to referenced McCain and Obama. Obama is obviously the conservative communist. Who is the neocon you reference? McCain definitely doesn't fit anywhere near any definition of conservative. Nor is he a constitutionalist. The fact that he met with Al Qaeda and promotes US forces fighting side-by-side with Al Qaeda tells me he isn't really pro-America. Perhaps one thing he has in common with Obama is they both consider Al Qaeda their ally.

You still haven't answer that question!!!
Marked by relapses and remissions, bipolar disorder has a high rate of recurrence if untreated. Patients with severe mania usually require hospitalization to keep them from risky behaviors. Those who are severely depressed also might need hospitalization to keep them from acting on suicidal thoughts.

We are not at war.
Bush is supporting Obama
Republicans divided..
Good news for America
Obama lifted his Syria speech from Bush

He then went on to pose a number of questions raised by critics about the need for military action, and answer them:“First, many of you have asked, won’t this put us on a slippery slope to another war?.&#8201;.&#8201;. Others have asked whether it’s worth acting if we don’t take out [Syrian President Bashar al-]Assad..&#8201;.&#8 201;. Other questions involve the dangers of retaliation..&#8201;.& #8201;. Many of you have asked a broader question: Why should we get involved at all in a place that’s so complicated and where, as one person wrote to me, those who come after Assad may be enemies of human rights?.&#8201;.&#8201 ;. Finally, many of you have asked, why not leave this to other countries or seek solutions short of force?”

Hmm, that sounded familiar. In his October 7, 2002, speech in Cincinnati, making the case that the United States must hold a Baathist dictator who used chemical weapons on his people to account, Bush declared:“Many Americans have raised legitimate questions: about the nature of the threat; about the urgency of action..&#8201;.&#8201 ;. These are all issues we’ve discussed broadly and fully within my administration. And tonight, I want to share those discussions with you.”

Bush then went on to pose a number of questions raised by critics and answer them:“First, some ask why Iraq is different from other countries or regimes that also have terrible weapons..&#8201;.&#820 1;. Some ask how urgent this danger is to America and the world..&#8201;.&#8201; . Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror..&#8201;.&#8201 ;. Many people have asked how close Saddam Hussein is to developing a nuclear weapon..&#8201;.&#8201 ;. Some citizens wonder, after 11 years of living with this problem, why do we need to confront it now?.&#8201;.&#8201;. Some believe we can address this danger by simply resuming the old approach to inspections, and applying diplomatic and economic pressure.”

In other words, Obama essentially copied Bush’s speech making the case for military action in Iraq to make his case for military action in Syria.

While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, it takes a special kind of chutzpah to plagiarize your predecessor while attacking him at the same time.

Of course, the imitation only went so far. After making the case for military action, Bush issued an ultimatum to the Iraqi regime. After making the case for military action, Obama announced he was deploying .&#8201;.&#8201;. Secretary of State John F. Kerry to meet with his Russian counterparts. Presumably Kerry will explain that if Assad fails to comply with Obama’s just demands, the Syrian dictator will face the consequences — a military strike that is “unbelievably small.”

Now that wasn’t lifted from George W. Bush.
