Gee DumbDave. What a wonderful way to make excuses and rationalize that Obama lied to everyone.

It's OK that millions are affected by a broken promise by Obama, just because you had cancellations.

Now that's being responsible!

Odd, she didn't become Chancellor until Nov. 22, 2005. But then again, maybe the more astute previous administration saw her as an up and coming conservative star.
"Merkel advocated a strong transatlantic partnership and German-American friendship. In the spring of 2003, defying strong public opposition, Merkel came out in favour of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, describing it as "unavoidable" and accusing Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of anti-Americanism." I'll bet she's changed her opinion now that we're stuck with the dithering fool as president.
Why is that odd? Are you aware of a special condition no one else knows of?

Democrats polishing turds!!!!

Feds sell off some GM stock...take a loss!!!!

"...{taxpayer ownership) was initially 60.8 percent, but is now down to about 7 percent, the Treasury said.“Because the common stock sales have all taken place below Treasury’s break even price, Treasury has so far booked a loss of $9.7 billion on the sales,

...Treasury would need to get $147.95 on its remaining shares to break even. That’s not going to happen: GM’s stock closed Wednesday at $35.80...

So in one post you say the delay is "good for America" but in another post you blame conservatives who asked for the delay to avoid a government shutdown and now that Obama has agreed to a delay you're blaming conservatives for the shutdown?

Actually, you misunderstood. It wasn't Bill O'Reilly who claimed it was no big deal. It was his guest, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, who said it was no big deal.
But Lt. Col. Ralph Peters' opinion is well-respected and holds a lot of clout on the O'Reilly Factor as a regular contributor.
Bill O'Reilly was just fair and balanced in looking out for the folks. That's his job.
Well, I'm sure he does hold clout in his incestuous relationship!

Story developing in Chicago:
U.S. Attorney General presses to keep evidence secret in Adel Daoud case
October 28, 2013 (WLS)-- The ABC7 I-Team has learned of an unusual move by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in a Chicago terrorism case. The Attorney General is pressing to keep evidence gathered against a suburban teenager secret, claiming that to release it would do "grave damage" to national security.

In one corner we have U.S. officials trying to dodge the diplomatic blowback from spying on foreign leaders. In another corner, we have U.S. intelligence spying on a Chicago teenager, American Adel Daoud, who was later arrested and charged in a terrorism case here. And Monday night, against the backdrop of spies, leaks and espionage, the curious case of the Hillside teenager is attracting personal attention from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Caught in the large net cast by U.S. intelligence agencies-- the same one that now has foreign leaders crying foul from corners of the world-- was information about a17-year-old high school student from west suburban Hillside.

Indicted in alleged Chicago terror plot
Adel Daoud has been in the federal lockup since being arrested more than a year ago on charges he tried to detonate what he thought was a car bomb in downtown Chicago. The bomb wasn't real and Daoud's accomplice was an FBI plant.
But since the teenager's arrest, prosecutors have revealed that the seed for the case against Mr. Daoud was found by national intelligence agents, and therefore much of the evidence gathered against him is confidential and cannot be provided even to his defense attorneys.

On Monday night, the I-Team has learned that Attorney General Holder has personally weighed in on the top secret case.

In an unusual addendum to this lengthy government filing in Chicago, is a blunt assessment of the "sensitive and classified information" collected on Daoud. Making it public would cause "serious damage...exceptionally grave damage" according to Attorney General Holder, and would "harm the national security."

In what some have described as a potentially precedent-setting case on how far the government can go in spying on its own people, whole pages of this public court filing are blocked out-- as "classified, material redacted."

Prosecutors have said that they do not plan to use evidence gathered by intelligence agencies at Daoud's trial, which is set for next spring. But that secret spy evidence was the way authorities found Mr. Daoud according to investigators, and that is why he and his attorneys want to see it and continue to make the case that they are entitled to it.
