Basically that's what Schieffer did, he laughed in Cruz's face. Even Cruz couldn't keep a straight face, he smiled too. If truth be told, both were laughing at the gullibility of right wing morons that gobble up Cruz's snake oil.

As far as I'm concerned, America fell about as low as it can go back in 2008. And we're still at basement level.

This year is going to be interesting. Obamacare is here. Democrats can't escape it. Let the chips fall where they may. Finally.

The White House’s Fannie and Freddie “one-finger-salute”

A former Republican lawmaker says the White House and Greenspan sabotaged legislation aimed at fixing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

http://www.salon.com/2008/09/10/greenspan_bus...

proof....

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

Fla. congressman to resign after cocaine scandal
""MIAMI (AP)— Facing a House ethics investigation, the Florida congressman who pleaded guilty to cocaine-possession charges last year will resign, his top aide said Monday, after several GOP leaders requested that he step down.
U.S. Rep. Trey Radel will send a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, chief of staff Dave Natonski said. Politico first reported the upcoming resignation.
On Nov. 20, the freshman Republican pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession and was sentenced to a year of probation. He admitted to purchasing 3.5 grams of cocaine from an undercover officer Oct. 29 in Washington.
Several GOP leaders, including Gov. Rick Scott, had asked him to resign. But Radel had pledged to stay in office and rebuild constituents' trust after taking a leave of absence and completing a month-long in-patient treatment program for drug and alcohol abuse. In a defiant prime-time news conference last month, he defended his legislative record and pledged to redouble his congressional efforts "with a clearer focus and a stronger mind."
After returning to Congress this month, he apologized to Republican colleagues and assured them in a closed-door meeting that he was in a good place and had found a support group, according to House aides who spoke on condition of anonymity at the time because they weren't authorized to discuss the private meeting.
Political pressure, however, was building.
The House Ethics Committee announced last month that it was launching a formal investigation of the congressman, and at least one of his former rivals, former state Rep. Paige Kreegel, had vowed to challenge him in a GOP primary. Former Rep. Connie Mack IV, who represented the area for eight years before a failed run for Senate, had been mentioned as another possible challenger.
Radel had been in office for 10 months when charged. His deeply conservative district includes the Gulf Coast cities of Fort Myers and Naples.
The drug arrest derailed a seemingly promising career.
After a stint as a TV news anchor, he started a media-relations firm and hosted an early-morning conservative talk-radio show in southwest Florida. He married another news anchor and they had a baby.
When he decided to run for Congress, he became involved in a bruising, six-way GOP primary, openly targeting opponents on the Internet and facing criticism for his firm's ownership of explicitly named websites. But he was backed by the local tea party movement and Republican luminaries, including Mack and Sen. Marco Rubio, and clinched the GOP nomination. He cruised to victory in November.
Things were seemingly going well for Radel. His wife was featured in a glowing local news segment about how the couple was adjusting to life in D.C. He had sponsored a handful of bills, and he was interviewed by several inside-the-Beltway publications. He was active on Twitter and wrote pieces for Buzzfeed about rap music.(He dubbed Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" a conservative anthem "because I believe when government expands it becomes a political tool meant to oppress.")
He championed cuts in sheep-farm subsidies, keeping good on his conservative promise.
Then, on Oct. 29, Radel attempted to buy $250 worth of cocaine from an undercover police officer in a Washington, D.C., neighborhood.
----------
Trey Radel, the true face of the Republican Party.

Despite spending years attacking the character of President Obama and the Democrats, a new Pew Research Center survey found that the American people trust Democrats more than Republicans 41%-31%.

The Pew Research Center’s annual survey of policy and priorities found that Democrats led Republicans on a wide range of character issues. Democrats had a 25 point lead (52%-27%) on being more willing to work with the other party. Democrats held a 20 point (52%-32%) advantage on the question of who is concerned with the needs of people like me. By a margin of 54%-35%, Republicans were found to be the more extreme party in their positions. Respondents also thought the Republican Party was more influenced by lobbyists than the Democratic Party (47%-30%), but the most telling question was who do people trust to govern ethically and honestly.

By a margin of 41%-31% those surveyed believed that Democrats govern in a more ethical and honest way than Republicans. This question goes to the heart of why Democrats continue to win elections. A majority of voters don’t trust the Republican Party. They don’t think Republicans will be honest with them. Some of these feelings are no doubt left over from the dishonest Bush administration, but much of the distrust comes from the way Republicans have chosen to govern.

... and that explains why AL Qaeda was attacking us thousands of miles from Afghanistan and openly running terrorist training camps in Libya and the US was training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US mililtary base in Jordan and we were supporting the Al Qaeda invasion of Syria when Bush was in office, and today Obama has them holed up in caves and blows their heads off any time they poke them out.

Come on. Even you can't believe Obama even had a clue Panetta was going to kill bin Laden.
Give it up, you're the Tokyo Rose of Topix. There's little doubt you're not an American. When are you going to admit that you blew your cover with the Boston Red Sox beard conspiracy? No American would suggest that obvious attack on America's favorite pass time. You can research facts about America on line but the culture is much harder to fake. Your attempt to create doubt in our Democratic system won't work on anyone but fanatic far right lunatics.

Yet you can't explain why, in 7 years, Bush failed to even come close.

I guess I'd attack Obama if I were you. LOL

After all, it's impossible to defend Bush's incompetence.

Funny thing, I was reading a friend's obituary.
He was survived by 3 children & 6 grandchildren.
So,according to Flack, his survivors were all under the age of 14.
Flack is too stupid to know words often have more than one meaning.
Webster says: "par·ent
noun \&#712;per-&#601;nt\
: a person who is a father or mother : a person who has a child"
According to Flack, you cease being a parent when your kid hits the age of 14.
When Flack is asked about his parents, he obviously replies that he has not had parents since he was 14 years old.
He's an idiot and is pissed off the a child can remain on the parents insurance policy till age 26. In his hillbilly world, you push your kid out after high school and say eff off. He can't conceive of a child going to university for 4 years and then grad school
"them's the breaks" in his world.

What your lying and brainwashing liberal media fails to tell you is bin Laden was the face placed on 9/11 and his death simply meant closure.

There were much bigger fish to fry after 9/11 and after disbanding bin Laden's thugs in Afghanistan. Bush killed or captured most of them - the ones who were capable of doing much more harm than bin Laden on 9/11.

Obama said a lot of things he didn't mean...as we all know now.

It was just convenient for him that the search which began long before he was even a blip on the radar came to an end while he was in office and could take all of the credit.

This doesn't compute though...I know. As far as you're concerned, Obama single-handedly led the search leading to bin Laden...am I correct?

fascism at it's best...

A retired Army general and Fox News analyst told a Tea Party group that he would lead a military coup against the U.S. government, if only reluctantly.

Paul Vallely, a retired major general and senior military analyst for the conservative news channel, told the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party Patriots during a Dec. 3 speech that other retired military personnel and veterans groups had contacted him about the possibility.

“I had a call this afternoon from Idaho, the gentleman said,‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?’” Vallely said as the group laughed and gasped.“I said,‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.”

note to carol...never use Vallely as a 'credible' source.
