U.S. presidents who have used this pronunciation include Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.
Edward Teller, "father" of the American hydrogen bomb, supposedly used this particular pronunciation, and this usage is a limited tradition within the American nuclear research establishment.
This pronunciation was also used by the character Indiana Jones in the film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull after Indiana survives an atom bomb test site by crawling inside a lead-lined refrigerator.
Bush is the only U.S. President to have earned an M.B.A. He attended Harvard Business School where he earned a Master of Business Administration.
Harvard doesn't give out Master's degrees because of anyone pulling strings.
Mr Lib is obviously seething with envy regarding President Bush's record. Truth to is ilk is like Holy Water to a demon.

More correct would be to say never before has an American President attracted as many racial slurs from extreme conservatives such as some of the posters on here. Calling him monkey, chimp, Muslim, Negro infact any name other than President. Had Hillary been elected she would have coped the same by the mere fact she is a woman. That is the one common trait amongst conservatism, a complete intolerance to change. Even when it is blatantly obvious for the better. Health care just being one of those things.
Would love to see how your lot would go in China calling the leader a monkey or in North Korea then in the next breath tell us how your freedom has been taken away in the USA. Total BS!

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.

"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]"

Questions about ‘60 Minutes’ Benghazi story go beyond Dylan Davies interview; CBS conducting ‘journalistic review’
....After The New York Times story was posted online, CBS quickly purged its websites of any mention of the piece and even demanded that a copy of the segment be removed from YouTube. On Sunday, Logan, in a brief appearance at the end of the regular “60 Minutes” broadcast, acknowledged that Davies had misled her and her crew and that “it was a mistake to include him in our report.”
But Logan’s mea culpa said nothing about other weaknesses in the report that a line-by-line review of the broadcast’s transcript reveals. McClatchy turned to LexisNexis, a legal research service, for a transcript of the broadcast because the segment no longer appeared on CBS sites.
The report repeatedly referred to al Qaida as solely responsible for the attack on the compound and made no mention of Ansar al Shariah, the Islamic extremist group that controls and provides much of the security in restive Benghazi and that has long been suspected in the attack. While the two organizations have worked together in Libya, experts said they have different aims – al Qaida has global objectives while Ansar al Shariah is focused on turning Libya into an Islamic state.
It is an important distinction, experts on those groups said. Additionally, al Qaida’s role, if any, in the attack has not been determined, and Logan’s narration offered no source for her repeated assertion that it had been.

Since “60 Minutes” acknowledgement that Davies had lied in his interviews, CBS also has not explained how Davies came to play such a major role in the segment and what role if any his connection to CBS-owned Threshold Editions had in his prominence. Threshold, which also has published books by former Vice President Dick Cheney, Republican strategist Karl Rove and conservative commentator Glenn Beck, withdrew Davies’ book from circulation last week.

<quoted text>But but but, what about Alinski, Ayers, Acorn, Rev Wright, Valerie, college transcripts, birth certificate.
Three of Barack Obama's mentors in Chicago were trained at the Industrial Areas Foundation, founded by the famed godfather of community organizing, Saul Alinsky.

In the Alinsky model,“organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution”— where the ultimate objective is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly oppressed segment of the population, and the radical transformation of America's social and economic structure.

The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx and Engels predicted.

In the early to mid-1990s, Obama worked with the (now defunct) community organization ACORN and its voter-mobilization arm, Project Vote.

In 2003, Manhattan Institute scholar Sol Stern wrote that ACORN, professing a dedication to “the poor and powerless,” in fact “promotes a 1960s-bred agenda of anti-capitalism, central planning, victimology, and government handouts to the poor.” ACORN, Stern elaborated, organized people “to push for ever more government control of the economy” and to pursue “the ultra-Left’s familiar anti-capitalist redistributionism.”

Worse than anyone thought: Just 27,000 people signed up to Obamacare on crippled healthcare.gov website in October – only 744 per stateAbysmal numbers will add new pressure as Republicans press for changes to the Affordable Care Act
106,185 chose plans overall, including the separate websites run by 14 states and the District of Columbia

Nearly one-third of all sign-ups came from California, which is running its own exchange site
The Obama administration is drawing heat for including in its numbers anyone who put an insurance plan in their online shopping cart, even if they haven't paid for the policies
Far more – 396,261 – have chosen to enter the Medicaid system, which will put a drain on resources instead of adding new money to the system
