My God Grampy. You are quite the liar.
Obama sought out a Community Organizing job after graduation from Columbia.
He was employed by a private church organization - and did't set up any non profit of his own.
Helping people get jobs, get better trained with community help.
And you b*tch about it. You people are truly dumber than sh*t.
My younger brother graduated from Columbia and took a real full time job right after graduation. But, he wasn't a drug addict like Barry.

Why did Obama move to Chicago after graduating from Columbia? He had no family or ties with that area. Now where are the headquarters for the Nation of Islam? Louis Farrakhan's Mosque Maryam is located in Chicago. Farrakhan set him up to infiltrate the Catholic Church. When Uncle Louis called Barack in for a bomb vest fitting Obama ran off to Harvard to seek job training....

I "did't" (your spelling) say Obama set up a non-profit. I stated that job training non-profits were a favorite scam of liberals. They don't work. As an example look at the poor results of the $400 million of Stimulus money Obama frittered away on 'Green Jobs' training.

Nothing wrong with "Helping people get jobs, get better trained with community help." But, that's not the liberal community organizer's goal. They are all for creating and maintaining perpetual reliance of the poor on big government in exchange political support
of the liberal Democrat Party!

Clinton was long gone, he was out of office in January, Bush would have been already brought up to speed by January, mor elikely even before then, when Clinton left office. It's common knowledge Bush ignore the report presented to him by the CIA.

correction!!!!

Chelsea Clinton did it all by her self...

and {insert republican name here}is rich and white and Liberals hate them for it...

"Chelsea Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinksy paid $9,250,000 for a four-bedroom apartment in the celebrity-studded Whitman condominium building on Madison Square Park, city records filed this month show.

That is $1.2 million less than the $10.5 million asking price, and $750,000 below what the building's other two occupants paid for their 5,000-square-foot units. All three apartments are nearly identical, except that the Clinton-Mezvinsky pad is on a higher floor."

Of course if my death is untimely please for the love of God look to her as the main suspect.

Long gone after inflicting enough damage.

Clinton's unwillingness to remedy the problem of international terrorism. Much has been said and written about Clinton, but facts are facts, and the facts show that Clinton did not protect America from terrorism, in particular Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden explained the purpose of the group in an interview in May of 1997, he declared a jihad, a holy war, against the United States government because it is, according to him, unjust, criminal, and tyrannical.

Clinton was made painfully aware of the danger this group provided, but he did little to nothing to stifle its threats.

Al Qaeda was busy during the Clinton Administration; the group took responsibility for the attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, the attacks on two U.S. military barracks in Saudi Arabia, the bombing of two U.S. Embassies in Africa, and the attacks on United States soldiers in Somalia.

Throughout these attacks, Clinton did nothing to protect America or her citizens; in fact he sabotaged America's ability to protect herself. Clinton incapacitated America by weakening the counter-terror organizations, overusing diplomacy, and simply ignoring the problem of international terrorism.

You're wrong__during the NYPD/FBI "blind cleric" investigation it was learned that terrorists had various talking stages plans, one of which, was to use heavy aircraft as missiles hitting landmark American buildings.

The NYT published a lengthy feature which detailed the more doable plans in 1995/6. Point is that many interested Americans knew about aircraft as missiles well before 9/11 and it was inexcusable that government agencies such as the FBI didn't take that threat more seriously. Particularly for, in the end, it was incredibly easy.

Much easier than poisoning water supplies, blowing up nuke plants etc.

Condi Rice asked "how could we have known?'

Hmmph__how could the NSA have not known?

Why do you call them evil? Although it's true to become that rich you do need to break some laws, ruin some lives. Okay I do see your point about them being evil.

Florida Blue Cross and Aetna are spending enormous sums on TV advertising__Blue Cross is even advertising on the radio.
Does the advertising tell prospective customers that the networks are not the same as for real Blue Cross and real Aetna?

Does the advertising make clear the deductibles and copays that go along with the premiums?

I can't even begin to describe how clueless you are about what this new tax law is doing to our economy already and what it's going to do in the years to come.

Or how Congress and the elite are exempt from it and dining on Cadillac coverage at our expense but, we, the peasants, are forced to swallow it whether we like it or not.

After January 1, I want you to open wide, Realtime, and take the biggest bite so I can watch you try to choke it down.

And here you're thinking you're going to eat steak.

Sad and unbelievable at the same time.
