I'm not the one claiming everything was great until that date in September. That was you demonstrating how little you understand about economics.
I like your new pathetic excuse - it was the Democrat's fault for not stopping the Republican fueled economic mess.
What policy did the Democrats change in those first 10 moths? What could they change with never more than 50- Democrat Senators Cheney tie breaker) & Bush's veto?
I would ask why you make false statements about what was in my post, but it is most likely because you have no argument unless you can change what I wrote.
The market crashed in two motions, both motions after the close of the conventions to nominate the candidates for president. The first crash was because it could no longer be ignored the network of investments were based on worthless real estate traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages. The second crash occurred after the Democrat-controlled House refused to pass a bank bailout legislation that it decided to pass immediately after the election was over.
You must think you are talking to a class of second graders.
Please tell us who the Majority Leader of the Senate was in 2007. How did that happen?
You are an ignorant dupe, and not worth the money we're paying you to post here.

The only thing true in that article is this:

Pfffttt...
but according to the video it proves the point. Social media is not a way to govern? I thought that was the O'bama plan. Any video that is put up on the internet must be true. Isn't that the premise they were using to bomb Syria? Rush isn't on yet-so how was it today?

FLASHBACK: Bill O'Reilly Accuses NBC Of Being A "Fifth Column" For Putin

Not surprisingly, Fox News wasn't always so affectionate towards Russia's president, a former KGB agent. And conservative commentators especially didn't feel so warmly about him when a Republican was in the White House.

In fact, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly in 2008 lashed out at America's so-called liberal media for giving Putin too much positive coverage. Specifically, O'Reilly denounced NBC for acting as Russia's "fifth column" in the U.S.; of being secret sympathizers of a foreign government [emphasis added]:

"With a network like NBC, Vladimir Putin has a fifth column right here in the good old USA. But most Americans understand that Putin is a villain, a former secret police killer who's intent in imposing Russian influence on border countries."

O'Reilly himself has remained consistent with his disdain for Putin this week.(i.e. He's "a scoundrel.") But as he watches so many of his Fox News colleagues fawn all over the Russian leader, is O'Reilly ready to label the channel another fifth column in the good old USA?

What we have is the Three Stooges form of diplomacy. Kerry pull a gaffe. Everybody but you Obots knows it. Even the Obama cheerleader media said is was a gaffe. They were in the middle of walking it back when Putin said we can work with that. Obama and company got shone what the clowns they are. A shame this clown is making America look weak in the eyes of the world.

Who gave you this erroneous information?
We are arming Al Qaeda in Syria.
And, there are not a significant number of "rebels" in Syria. The war is mostly being fought between the invading Al Qaeda forces Obama is supporting and the Assad government.

Now, it seems Obama has stumbled into a situation where he has to guarantee the Assad government will maintain authority in Syria.
Now, what kind of an ignorant buffoon would do that?
I'm betting the Muslim Brotherhood won't tolerate that kind of incompetence. They just might fire Obama.

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.

<quoted text>"Today - after 11 days in September -- President Obama secured his place in history once again.
This is "peace through strength". This is Smart Power. On the eve of the 12th Anniversary of 9/11, President Obama has demonstrated that the lessons of the past wars have been learned.
The President's threat of war; his commitment to striking back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has brought the Syrian and the Russian presidents to the negotiating table. Al-Assad has now admitted that he has chemical weapons and he has agreed to never use them again. Mind you, no missiles have been fired -- and yet this is the solution we sought.
We have won.
More, this was a bipartisan effort for peace.
Forget the Tea Party fanatics. They would burn their own house down if they could.
But the people who are serious about governing worked together to bring about this peaceful solution. Props should go to Speaker John Boehner and Senator John McCain -- both put their country ahead of their own short-term political lives. They took the heat; they joined the president in condemning chemical weapons -- and they all brought about a resolution to this crisis."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brian-keane/lad...
So, if American bi-partisanship and international cooperation can work to get a military dictator to surrender his chemical weapons to international United Nations control, then why is it so hard for Republicans to admit working with President Obama on immigration reform, making Obamacare better, jobs creation, and climate change at home is much easier then causing crises over the national debt, whining about U S Defense cuts that even the Pentagon approves of in a world where the U S is no longer at war in Iraq or Afghanistan,?
Every anniversary of 9/11 we are reminded that the hole in our hearts is still there.This year, the leadership vacuum in this great country is making the emptiness harder to bear.
