Oh no, that's Bush's fault. To this day he has undercover Tea Party agents who roam the countryside, stealing from people's median income accounts in the wee hours of the morning.

DB just tosses shyt out there to see what sticks. Everything he posts is nothing more than a fabrication of a deranged mind.
I’m betting you’re so ignorant, you didn’t even know Clinton was a frequent flyer to Moscow while he was dodging the draft.
After Clinton’s short-lived tenure at Oxford — he never finished his second semester there — he remained a member of The Mobilization Committee, a Communist-front organization dedicated to undermining the strength of the United States and opposing American initiatives against the communist world movement, for another three years.
… and here’s the rest of the story.

Once in England, Clinton lived up the expectations of his promoters and joined the British Peace Council, which was established by the British Communist Party. Quickly, Clinton helped the council organize other expatriate Americans and draft-dodgers for anti-war demonstrations on October 15, 1969 and again on November 16, 1969 in front of the U.S. Embassy in London.
The British press, at that time, reported that the protesters chanted,“Ho, Ho, Ho,” and “Ho-Chi Minh, Viet Cong is gonna win.”
Shortly after that, Clinton joined with other pro-communist and anti-American protesters on a trip to Norway to demonstrate in opposition to that Nation’s desire to join NATO.
Activities such as Clinton’s were not at all out of character for Oxford students during that period and it has been estimated that even today, upwards of 60 percent of all British professors hold moderate to extreme Socialist views. For such, the Universities had long been the home recruiting ground of the international communist movement. Its successes were exemplified by their recruitment of the traitors Kim Philby and Donald McClean.
While Bill Clinton has never explained who paid for his trip to Moscow, he was accompanied by a friend and fellow Oxford student, Czech Jan Kopold. They were to attend a meeting of the War Moratorium Committee to be held January 2, 1970. Upon arrival, Clinton did not check into a youth hostel, but rather stayed at the Hotel National, the most exclusive and expensive one in Moscow of that time — a ritzy place usually reserved for foreign ambassadors and high-level Communist Party apparatchiks.
In today’s terms, that trip would probably cost several thousand dollars. Clinton only had his tiny $275 Rhodes stipend to live on and never held a job. Thus, it is easy to believe that this tab and the arrangements could only have handled by the KGB, which during that epoch limited no expenses in its attempts to recruit promising American students in Europe.
Clinton has also never accounted for the 11 days spent in Moscow before the actual meeting of the War Moratorium and has never revealed who paid his expenses or what he did or whom he met with during that time. However, for a tourist visiting Red Square in Moscow, a trip to Lenin’s Tomb is usually on the itinerary. For a visiting leftist, such a visit is as requisite as a Moslem’s visit to the Kabah while in Mecca. Standing before the mummy of the High Priest of Communism and Atheism on Christmas Day, for a communist, had long represented a symbolic, ritual act of contempt and abnegation of all the religious, spiritual, and ethical values which most Americans cherish.
Even more telling was Clinton’s January 4 return trip from Moscow on another Aeroflot jet. The flight terminated in Prague, then the capital of the Czechoslovakian Soviet Socialist Republic (CSSR). There, Clinton was a guest of Jan Kopold’s father, Bedrich Kopold and Jan’s maternal grandmother Maria Svermova, who was the original founder of the Czech Communist Party in the 1930s. During his visit, she took a liking to young Bill; they walked and talked. Svermova’s deceased husband was the original editor of Rude Pravo, the Czech Communist Party paper before the War.

Nobody has to show you anything, you teabaggers marginalized yourself last week. You don't matter any more. Republicans are searching for any way they can find to throw you out of their tent. Your stupidity hurts the conservative cause. Your publicity stunt to shut down the government hurt the country. You offer ZERO solutions.
You were a colorful fad that main street media used to fill space.
Whine away. You never were credible, just a curiosity.
What shut down?
I don't recall seeing any government shut down.
I do recall 87 percent of the government being unaffected, though.

Here's a fact anyone who deals with copyrighted software knows:

The problems with the software Obama stole for his ObamaKare site can only be fixed by the people Obama stole the software from. They are the only people who know where all the software bombs are, put there to sabotage any thief like Obama who steals their software.

Every bit of money spent trying to fix the problem is wasted. It can never be fixed. Obama has to go to the people he stole the software from to fix the problem.

Oh really?

You mean when the U.S.S.R. had its nuclear ballistic missiles ready to strike at us was no problem?

After four years of Jimmy Carter with gas rationing, and mortgage interest rates at 20%, inflation and unemployment and the famous "stagflation" thanks to Democrat policies and Jimmy Bob Carter? Remember the Iran hostage crisis and the crashed helicopter / failed laughable rescue mission Jimmah Cahtah tried?

The day Reagan came into office, the hostages were released, the economy picked up after a couple of years with Reagan and even the COLD WAR ended, you idiot!

Ok. Let's just look at the facts and give Obama his due credit.

Obama stole the software for ObamaKare, and stole the 100 million dollars we gave to him to write the software he stole, and now he needs another 100 million dollars to fix the software because he stole it from people who aren't as stupid as him.

Did I get all of that right?

Triumphant President Takes Victory Lap Over Huge Obamacare Success

Guy Benson



President Obama addressed the nation in the Rose Garden this afternoon to discuss the Affordable Care Act. The address was more "pep rally" than anything else, as Townhall's Guy Benson reports:

Yes, really. As you read this morning, I was expecting a some perfunctory contrition and token acceptance of responsibility from President Bystander during his Obamacare remarks in the Rose Garden today. I was wrong. The appearance was more of a pep rally, replete with upbeat promises and applauding supporters. Aides might as well have hung a large "mission accomplished" banner over Obama's head. The fact that the Obamacare websites -- a core element of the law functioning -- are in total shambles and won't be fixed for many weeks or even months were all but shrugged off as an afterthought. Be sure to stick with this clip through the very end, when one of Obama's human props actually faints right behind him. Not to worry, Obama told consumers, the law is "working well," and in some cases, even better than expected. He spent much of the speech insisting that the product itself is just fantastic. Rates are lower. Costs are down. Coverage is better. The system is "smoother" than ever. He used isolated anecdotes to "prove" these points, ignoring buckets of empirical evidence to the contrary. For good measure, he also blamed Republicans and the recent government shutdown for some of the glitches -- totally false red herrings. He emphasized that if you're one of the few (!) people who've had trouble signing up online, you're free to simply dial a 1-800 number for assistance. Thus, the President of the United States was reduced to acting as a ShamWow pitch man. Except ShamWow's phone system, um, isn't broken:

Oh, yeah. The "programming issues" are software bombs put there by the people who own the software Obama stole.
You won't be able to fix the software without them.
You might as well face that fact. It will be impossible to find all the software bombs they loaded it with to protect themselves from people like Obama who will steal their software.

No amount of money will find all the software bombs, you moron. Only the people Obama stole it from know where all of them are.

Do I dare say we agree? This isn't some kind of a trick, is it?

Hillary actually is too old for the job. But it's not going to be a cakewalk for any president in 2016. Even if we manage to survive until then.

But each side guarding their candidates until as late as possible is absolutely true in this day and age.

I couldn't agree more. Astonishing, huh?
