Obama, July, 2008: "Now is the time for a responsible redeployment of our combat troops that pushes Iraq’s leaders toward a political solution, rebuilds our military, and refocuses on Afghanistan and our broader security interests." "Political posturing"? Bull

To bad it didn't succeed. We would all be better off.
Yes, Obama played by the rules and acted the part as was expected of him to win. He even sent troops into Afghanistan and into harm's way because he couldn't say enough times it was the "right war" in order to win. But after being elected and sending those soldiers into a war zone, less than 24 hours later, he announced a withdrawal deadline.

Now that's what I call commitment by a Commander-in-Chief who believes in what he's doing at the risk of losing lives...not!

I'm looking for news stories where an outraged media is calling for Obama administration heads to roll after any one of the many scandals.
Maybe Christie needs to jump ship and declare himself a democrat. Then the media would be saying his actions today showed what an honest, tough, and no nonsense politician he was.
Still looking, by the way...
which scandals are those? just calling a news story a scandal doesn't make it so....
caution, this may require independent thinking, you may want to sit down before attempting this maneuver as you run a high risk of blowing an aneurism in the process...

New Jersey Lane Closures Delayed Emergency Response To 91-Year-Old Woman Who Later Died: Report
""Emergency response teams were reportedly delayed in traffic caused by lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September, including one vehicle responding to a 91-year-old woman in cardiac arrest who later died.
The lane closures and its resulting gridlock, which created major problems for New Jersey commuters, have become a political headache for Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has maintained that he had nothing to do with the decision to close the lanes.
According to a letter from EMS coordinator Paul Favia to Fort Lee, N.J. Mayor Mark Sokolich obtained by The Bergen Record, at least four emergency vehicles were stuck in traffic caused by the unannounced lane closures, doubling response time in at least two of the cases.
The Record reports:
On Sept. 9, the first day of the traffic paralysis, EMS crews took seven to nine minutes to arrive at the scene of a vehicle accident where four people were injured, when the response time should have been less than four minutes, he wrote.
It also took EMS seven minutes to reach an unconscious 91-year-old woman who later died of cardiac arrest at a hospital. Although he did not say her death was directly caused by the delays, Favia noted that “paramedics were delayed due to heavy traffic on Fort Lee Road and had to meet the ambulance en-route to the hospital instead of on the scene.”

Now that Christie has self destructed, this clears the way for a Hillary landslide!!
Meanwhile Obama bin Lyin has succeeded in losing demokRATs the House and Senate in 2014 you ignorant dumbasss... in 3 more year you idiot, Obama bin Lyin loses democRATS the POTUS in 2016 you moron..

"Catholic churches" is not precise term...
are you referring to the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Rome???...
far different from other Christian churches, all of which are generally independent operations..
if your question is about the Vatican, talk to someone who cares...
If you had been paying attention, you would know that I have been discussing the Catholic Church aka Roman Catholic Church aka Church of Rome. You can cherry pick all you want. Does not change the fact that they are intertwined. I have not been discussing other denominations. I am not discussing neighborhood churches that are struggling. I am discussing the one church that is attempting to influence legislation in this country. The one church that should have their tax exempt status denied. Stop trying to change the subject.

Don't think he ever got started. Unless you were the only one who heard him announce his 2016 candidacy and his withdrawal from the presidential race. Because I didn't.

A lot can happen in just one week in politics. We've got two more years to go before the mean lean liberal lying machine even starts its engines.

don't go easy on me...why do those building have to have windows? and you know it is the windows that are the problem, not the buildings...
how much bird habitat is destroyed mining for coal to create the power the windmills would create? so many factors here. the bird deaths by windmills are insignificant in the larger picture...and i am a lifelong birder with a in the wildlife re-hab industry...
Yes, they are changing design of new office buildings. But they also run into windows in my house, and I like windows!!

Adding more stuff that kills birds doesn't make sense.

Even with windmills, the past years have seen an explosion of fossil fuel activities, huge areas denuded for fracking all over the USA. And we're still mining and exporting coal like mad.

So there is no net gain in windmills. Just another producer of energy, and not all that green!!

If we eliminated one bad activity when we adopt another, it would be better. But all we do is pile more and more on, to the point Mother Nature is in full disarray. There's an old Neil Young song "After the Gold Rush":

""Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.""

That was true 40 years ago, even more true today.
