They know they'll get bailed out too if worse comes to worse - at our expense - again. They're also under the same decree from on high just like the rest of us.
I'd rather see them bailed out than Wall Street brokers and gamblers.

What you mean is you want to be selective about which part of government is smaller!
Show me the post where I said anything about expanding the military, then we'll talk.

Some countries have said the same thing about Bush but I still would want a foreign leader disrespecting him by refusing to shake his hand.
If Bush is a war criminal, so is Obama. Can't have one without the other.

Tyrants, dictators and murderers deserve ZERO respect.

There's no global warming, Homer. Sorry your Al Gore picture has to come down over the mantle. But the Artic is covered with ice. Thick ice. Lots of ice.
And global temperatures haven't risen for a while now.
According to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), 2008 was the ninth warmest year in the period of instrumental measurements which extends back to 1880...and the ten warmest years all occurred within the 12-year period 1997-2008.
The natural pattern of climate has changed again.
Maybe you can sell your picture of Al on EBay. Or give it a proper burial.
Yes Carol, global warming is a reality despite what delusional deniers like you want to believe. Here's a statement by Richard Muller, who directed a Koch-funded climate change project;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
The Goddard Institute for Space Studies monitors global surface temperatures on an ongoing basis compared temperatures around the World in 2012 to the average global temperature from the mid-20th century, analyzing data that shows that the Earth continues to experience warmer temperatures than several decades ago.
The average temperature in 2012 was about 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit, which is 1.0 F hotter than the mid-20th century baseline. The average global temperature has risen about 1.4 F since 1880.
Weather patterns normally cause fluctuations in average temperature on a year to year basis, but the continued increase in greenhouse gas levels in the Earth’s atmosphere most assuredly will manifest itself in a long-term rise in global temperatures.
Each successive year will not necessarily be warmer than the year before, but on the current course of greenhouse gas increases, scientists expect each successive decade to be warmer than the previous decade.
“One more year of numbers isn’t in itself significant,” Goddard climatologist Gavin Schmidt said.“What matters is this decade is warmer than the last decade, and that decade was warmer than the decade before. The planet is warming. The reason it’s warming is because we are pumping increasing amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.”
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that traps heat and is a major risk factor for the increase in the Earth’s climate. It occurs naturally and also is emitted by the burning of the different fossil fuels for the energy needs of the world. Driven by increasing man-made emissions, the level of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere has been rising consistently for decades.
By the way Carol, this year the North Pole became a lake without any ice cover at all. There's significantly less ice in the arctic regions then there has been in the past. That's a fact.

LOVED how the Koch-Cultists and Teatards went from quoting him and holding him up like a cross to ward off vampires whenever the subject of Global Warming came up...to turning on him like Dirty Dogs and ripping him to shreds the second he didnt tell them what they wanted to hear.

A lot of people are going to be remembering Ted Cruz filibustering ObamaCare - if they're not already.
Ted Cruz did not filibuster the ACA.

He filibustered the funding of our country which cost 24 billion to our economy to try to make a political point to further his own self interest.

Just think, if it were Ted Cruz meeting Raul Castro, Castro would have thanked Cruz for his family's service to the Castro family.

Hey Moonbat. How's the weather on the Moon?

You really need to try and keep up with what has been going on.

Either do that or you need to correct all of the news papers that they don't know what they are talking about, and that you do:

The ACA passes in 2010. Cruz was not a Senator at that time so how could he filibuster it?

You people are truly dumber than sh*t.
