Thank God that Muslim Obama didn't serve in the military!Could you imagine him covering your back?Obama would be negotiating a utopia love fest with our enemies!
Obama has killed four times as many terrorists than under the Bush administration. Not bad for a so called Muslim/terrorist sympathiser. He is serving in military now as the C&C

GHW Bush was a fighter pilot and a war hero and the youngest naval aviator commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve in Texas.
With such an honorable and distinguished military background, why would Bush, Sr., think "his boy" needed to be taken care of?
It's unlikely any military officer would take a bribe to protect anyone's "boy".
Shows how much you know about military, which is nothing.

As for GHW protecting his son, that's a forgone conclusion.

He pulled strings to get W into the Texas Air National Guard.

And he pulled strings to get him into Harvard.

Whether Killian was bribed or influenced in some way to give Bush a glowing evaluation is hardly beyond credibility.

The high rating is belied by the simple fact that Bush failed to meet the full obligation of his duties which was 44 drills. He completed 36.

He failed to go through a medical exam in 1973 and had his flying status revoked. Then was given an early discharge.

Only a cheerleader like you would regard that as a "sterling" record.

Fact facts, his whole tenure in the National Guard was to dodge Vietnam.

End of argument.

Oh wait! It must be con mass hysteria!


"Sept. 15: Obama discusses the Benghazi attack in his weekly address. He makes no mention of terror, terrorists or extremists. He does talk about the anti-Muslim film and “every angry mob” that it inspired in pockets of the Middle East."

"Sept. 18: Obama was asked about the Benghazi attack on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” The president said,“Here’s what happened,” and began discussing the impact of the anti-Muslim video. He then said,“Extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the consulate in Libya.” He also said,“As offensive as this video was and, obviously, we’ve denounced it and the United States government had nothing to do with it. That’s never an excuse for violence.”

http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/benghazi-tim...

"On September 25, in an address before the United Nations General Assembly President Obama stated, "The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America...And there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice."[60][190] He referred to Innocence of Muslims as "a crude and disgusting video [that] sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world." He said, "I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity."[191] He further stated, "There is no video that justifies an attack on an Embassy."[192]"

GOP, the party of:

*Failed economic theories

*Two unfinished wars under Bush, one of which he lied us into.

*The Recession of 2008

*Doubing the National Debt from 5.7 to 11.4 Trillion

*The Great Depression of 1929

*Jack Abramoff

*Joe Mcarthy

*Tricky "Dick" Nixon

*Iran-Contra Reagan

*J. Edgar Hoover who used the FBI as an instrument of political oppression against progressives.

Face it, you guys are total losers. The only thing you're good for is catering to the rich.

I feel sorry for the bloke.
The problem is Whites haven't evolved in the last 50 years all the Privilege favor White Affirmative Action and stupidity has created a Race of Dummies that Asians & Blacks are running circles around. Now all they can do is try to bully us intimidate us and shoot up the Batman movies & blow up the Boston Marathons.

If Whites don't pick it up stop longing & whining for 1950 cause its not happening deal with it or else you will fall further behind into oblivion. You can't kill everybody.

Benghazi is a non issue except among FOX stooges.
Of course it's a nonissue for Dems, it's almost as damning as Obamacare.

It all turned out to be wishful thinking, unfortunately, as black Americans began to fare far worse under President Obama than they had under Bush. Under President George W. Bush (Jan. 2007), black unemployment was 7.9%{1}, under Obama it has risen to 13.4%(Oct. 2012).{2}

And how is this relative to my post which critiques Bush's National Guard service?

it isn't.

Mentally speaking, this is proof that Republican elevators don't go all the way to the top. The front porch light is on, but nobody's home.

It clearly wasn't Carter who caused the recession. But feel free to make an idiot of yourself trying to prove otherwise.

"Every military event a diasterous debacle"?

Mr. GOP Exaggerator, there was only one military event which comes to mind, and that was the failed rescue attempt of the U.S. embassy personnel in Iran.

Only a goofball with an axe to grind would blame Carter for what happened. The military had complete control over the mission and blew it. So it's their fault, not Carter's.

And just 27,000 did so via the federal exchanges
