Any president's wife referring to her husband's "homeland" should not be interpreted to mean anything other than the United States of America.
It also means one's birthplace...and this president already has enough suspicion about his legitimacy to be president already...so why would his wife be so careless?

The core element of the stragegy developed by the communists early in the Cold War was to first eliminate what is referred to as the traditional American values, such as family. It was hypothesized that if the traditional family values were removed from the American culture, the motivation to defend the American culture, thus the American people, thus the country, would be reduced to a point of being ineffective.
This strategy was developed in the Soviet Union in the 50s.
How successful do you think the execution of that strategy was?
You didn't study American values closely enough in Russia to prevent the blunder you made exposing yourself. Let's try again:
Here’s a question for you DB. What’s the best way to bring down America? Bombs won’t work, but encouraging Americans to not trust their government might. And wouldn’t the best way to do this, if you were a foreign national, be to present yourself as an American Patriot on the internet? Your just a political Nigerian lottery scam.
You know what gave you away? Your feeble attempt to generate distrust in America’s favorite pass time by suggesting the Boston Red Sox grew beards as part of a Muslim conspiracy. No real American would make that claim, but an overreaching saboteur unfamiliar with American culture would. The final nail in your coffin was to suggest that the President of Libya was a more reliable source of information than a bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee.
Nice try internet terrorist.

Yet in 7 years, Bush did not give the order!!
think about that. Obama got OBL in 2 years, because he gave the order that Bush never did.
Bush was a failure, lost 2 wars and destroyed the economy.
Yet you defend him, just as you stupidly defend the parents of Terri Schiavo
There is a pattern to your insanity..
Bush can't get OBL for 7 years, yet you claim 'any President would give that order'??
You are truly suffering from Obama induced Insanity!!
Obama didn't have a clue the operation was even happening. As soon as it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett the operation had begun, she issued an abort order (which was ignored by Panetta) and summoned Obama from the golf course where he thought he'd spend his entire day... on the day he's going to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden.
Come on. Even you can't believe Obama even had a clue Panetta was going to kill bin Laden.

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.

Obama had NOTHING to do with finding bin Laden - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! The search began when Obama was picking his nose and voting "present":as an Illinois state senator!
Any president would have done exactly what Obama did once bin Laden was found after almost a decade of trying to find him.
Except any other president wouldn't have been on the golf course on the same day the Seals were risking their lives to kill him and then played cards because it was too intense to watch.
But you're getting much too desperate. Now your blaming your blind loyalty on my Jeep.
That's a lie. President Bush was not intent on finding and killing Bin Laden; he even said as much. President Obama said he would find him and kill him and he did it!

You are the desperate one here, lying and lying and lying. I don't know how you live with yourself.

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.
