We were attacked on 9/11 because Clinton did nothing after numerous attacks both here and abroad during the previous five years. The enemy thought we were weak.
It was under Clinton the CIA and FBI anti-terror units received greater funding and were expanded. The CDC was provided with stockpiles of antidotes for Smallpox and Anthrax.

Clinton wanted tighter airport security and bank tracking of suspected terror financiers, but noooo... the GOP Senators refused to go along. The banks and airline companies told them not to.

Clinton also tried to take out Bin Laden with a cruise missile strike on his HQ in Afghanistan.

Did Bush try to take out Bin Laden prior to 9-11. Nooooo. No cruise missile strikes authorized by Bonzo.

You GOP hypocrites never breathed a word of protest regarding Clinton's anti-terror policies until AFTER 9-11.

Why? Because after Chimp totally screwed up, you were desperate to blame it on someone else.

Face the facts. Bush was warned and did nothing. Unlike Clinton who actually did something.

Repugnants have no credibility.

Hello?? Who said anything about invading? Do you really think Obama has shaken Putin's resolve? Obama would have been better served threatening Putin with a stern tongue lashing. He can't even bring himself to do that.
And YOU're chiding him for it, you lugnut. Of course he isn't going to invade, but you "no dog in that fight" act like you would.

with two wars raging and an economy in total shambles, health care reform was the number two item on exit poll voter's minds back in '08. not just liberals but the whole nation.
this was due to the average of 13.1% increases per year for a decade in health care insurance premiums...and the huge rise in people going bankrupt due to health care issues...not just liberals, but people across the political spectrum. people who supposedly did everything right. worked hard, paid health insurance fees their whole lives,and then got cut off due to caps or pre-existing conditions i f they had to change jobs...

Let’s see what the Constitution of the United States of America has to say about Obama’s pen.
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
He shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
I don’t see anything here about Obama having the authority from the Constitution to write his own laws, moron. All I see is Obama is required to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
This means Obama violated the Constitution every time he rewrote the ObamaKare law, just for one example.
Should we go over all the laws Obama wrote in violation of the Constitution?
Should we go over all the laws Obama is ignoring?
Should we go over all the laws Obama is violating?
Should we go over how Obama has joined the Islamist terrorists at war with the United States and made the White House part of the Islamist terrorist network?
lol! you shouldn't talk about things you know nothing about son.

Tell me how a single energy company in one state or grid is at a disadvantage to another energy company in an other area? There is very little competitiveness with power companies. They raise the cost of their energy to the customers in their area to compensate for their carbon tax losses.
I sear you Tea Party idiots take classes in being stupid.

Example. You people are having a fit because Obama is changing overtime pay rules. Do you know when it was done last time??? Under Bush & I have some news, it was not through Congress.

The executive branch gas leeway in enacting legislation that is written into the laws. When the various departments were set up, they were given certain authorities.

Ow about you do some studying on how the cap & trade for acid rain worked. How it made "dirty" energy more expensive than "cleaner" energy. The same way would work for carbon emissions.

You should really quit regurgitating TeaParty rhetoric & become better educated.

Perhaps you can tell us what legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created the recession, housing collapse, and near financial meltdown.
Oh wait, you can't. You will just tuck your tail between your legs and run away yet again.
Here are the Democrats spewing outright lies negotiating with the Republicans to get no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program in exchange for Democrats supporting the war in Iraq:
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1222905...

The Democrats didn't oppose the war in Iraq until there was nothing more the Republicans could give them.

Lesson learned: Never negotiate with Democrats or terrorists. Any concession you give them will do you great harm later. The proof is the economic collapse the Democrats' Marxist CRA program caused after two years (fuck you) oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.

Dealing with Democrats is like living with a rattle snake. You know it's going to bite you. You just don't know when.

The American people need to be educated about the facts first. It is a slow process but I do see people opening their eyes to the war crimes committed by israel. People now seem to understand just why the Middle East is angry with the U.S. We have supplied israel with the "aircraft, helicopter gunships, missiles, bombs and bullets for attacks against Palestinians and blocked any international condemnation of Israel in UN." This has got to stop if there is any chance of peace in the region.
israel now manufactures many of the weapons of war. I think most of the aid is now given in cash, so it eliminates the option to even 'buy US', which was once a stipulation.

Or, you can prove that wrong.

Show us the text in the Constitution that allows Obama to write his own laws and set wages any company has to pay its employees.

You're not saying something like Obama is violating the Constitution by writing his own laws and setting wages in the country, are you?

Well, then, show us that text from the Constitution.

You say "sinking America" & you blame the poor in the typical right whiner reaction.
My God, don;t blame those that created the recession that sent millions to the unemployment line & to the food stamp program.
Nooooooooooooo.
Its all the fault of those caught up in that recession.
How about we quit giving tax breaks for taking jobs overseas. But nooooooooooooooooooo Right Whiners won't allow that.
How about raising the poor up instead of perpetually financing their condition with money borrowed from future generations.

You're not grasping. These so called, one sided, free trade agreements enable the taking of jobs overseas. When you use words like "Right Whiner", Reich Winger, and so on,, you've lost. You look like you're just following a herd and chanting slogans. When an attempt is made to address these agreements, or really economic pacts, that send jobs overseas, words like isolationist come out. So, live with it.

It is amazing how the dumbshits on here are still talking about Obama, You are a pathetic bunch of ass+holes. With all that is going on with the destruction of our rights, no-knock raids on the innocent, the killing of small animals by the big government animals it behooves me that America hasn't collapsed long before this.

It is my greatest dream for the American flag to be torn down and another nation to take over America, like the Chinese or Russians. You don't deserve to have America, you don't really care for it. All you want is money and more money. So keep selling out your country and yourselves and good riddance to you and your greed. Eventually my dream will come true and it appears that it will be sooner rather than later.
