not much variation from the truth. sorry about that.
Sure and Saddam was misunderstood those people he hung on meat hooks actually enjoyed the torture. His Sons were salt of the earth sweethearts that never kidnapped, raped and killed young girls for laughs.

People who have taken "PolitiFact's Lie of the Year" and run with it as if it was representative of something other than the personal opinion of reporters and editors from the Times lack common sense.
What lacks common sense is your continued worship of the inexperienced, unqualified, inept puppet of the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine, Barack Hussein Obama , with the now proven record of disaster in handling administrative decisions, along with your penchant for parading all over town in your in your old fat lady stretch pants.

It's flat creepy listening to her laugh all the way through the interview. Having said that I'm still not convinced she'll run I think her health isn't all that good and she's a granny to be. Bill and Hill have well over 100 million with money still coming in on her book sales "Hard Choices" and speaking engagements plus money from the Clinton Foundation. They're set up very very comfortably.
Hillary is too ugly to run. No one wants to look at that mug shot every day.

The Rand Paul-backed tea partier running for House majority leader had a rough weekend, when the GOP convention he was running back home in Idaho devolved into what local paper The Spokesman-Review described as a “fiasco.”
Rep. Rául Labrador oversaw the convention, which ended with the party unable to agree on a chairman or a platform, as far-right forces and more moderate Republicans warred over the specifics.
It’s a blow for Labrador, who is trying to portray himself as a leader capable of uniting those two forces back in Washington where he’s campaigning to be the next majority leader.“The message from Tuesday is clear—Americans are looking for a change in the status quo,” Labrador said in a statement announcing his candidacy, according to the Huffington Post, adding that he aimed to create ”a leadership team that can bring the Republican conference together.”
....His inability to unify his party back in Idaho won’t help his cause, either.
“For three weeks I’ve tried to broker a deal to prevent what happened today,” Labrador told reporters shortly after the Idaho GOP convention adjourned. The Spokesman-Review notes that the GOP holds every statewide office in Idaho, every seat in the congressional delegate and a strong majority of the state Legislature, yet it is deeply divided.
“It was basically the ultra-, ultra-conservative, tea party-libertarian type people basically flexing their muscle in the way the thing was organized,” complained the state Senate assistant majority leader and a Boise Republican, state Sen. Chuck Winder.
“It’s a real shame that a convention comes to that stage, where there really wasn’t any real floor leadership, there wasn’t any fairness in the process, either in the credentials committee or on the floor. It was all pre-determined. It’s kind of ‘who’s going to have the power,’ rather than working together.”

What's the source of that hog wash? The 9/11 Commission found no connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda.
No one has found a connection between O'bama and a brain either. But they have found a connection between Saddam Hussein and Barack Hussein. Can you figure out what it is?

“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”--(a screeching) Hillary Clinton

Wonder how she feels about the FACT that if you debate and disagree with THIS administration, somehow you're racist/homophobic/misogynistic /etc., etc., etc..?

Communist Party USA opens convention in Chicago

Of course the convention was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago -- the very campus where Obama’s “guy in the neighborhood” Bill Ayers achieved tenure, and handed out grants to “improve” Chicago schools, working with his neighbor Barack Obama.

Was the ghost of Obama mentor and party member Frank Marshall Davis there?

Maybe ¨red diaper baby¨(a person born to communist parents) David Axelrod, mastermind of Obama’s rise to national politics was there wearing a Groucho disguise?

That would be fine if you were actually debating or disagreeing. But, you're not. You are maligning and disparaging. You denigrate the Presidents character; post photo shopped naked photos of the Presidents late mother; you lie and whine about the First Ladies wardrobe; the cost of fuel on AF1, the cost of Secret Service protection; the cost of their vacations; you question his birth place; his religion. You call him a Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Muslim, and on and on and on. All of which is untrue and your saying so daily will never make it true, it's just a stupid exercise in futility. You learned that from Rush Limbaugh and repeat it like a good little dittohead or mindless parrot.
The other day another one of you made vile remarks about Chelsea Clintons looks; and Carol the religious hypocrite agreed. You whine about the amount of money Chelsea Clinton is paid by NBC.
You call the President of the United States: The Kenyan, show depicitons of him as an ape,
you do the same to the First Lady.
All of these things do make you anti American and a disgrace to this country.

Now, if you would say: I disagree with the Presidents stand on not getting involved in Iraq because of......., that's different.

I have not seen any of you do that since this thread began. None of you. So, therefore, yes you are racist and likely homophobic, misognistic, xenophobic. Why do you object to being called out on what you are and display here daily?

The United States said it could launch air strikes and act jointly with its arch-enemy Iran to support the Iraqi government, after a rampage by Sunni Islamist insurgents across Iraq that has torn up traditional alliances in the Middle East.

Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have routed Baghdad's army and seized the north of the country in the past week, threatening to dismember Iraq and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.

Joint action between the United States and Iran to help prop up the government of their mutual ally would be unprecedented since Iran's 1979 revolution, demonstrating the urgency of the alarm raised by the lightning insurgent advance.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the advance an "existential threat" for Iraq. Asked if the United States could cooperate with Iran against the insurgents, Kerry told Yahoo News: "I wouldn't rule out anything that would be constructive."

As for air strikes: "They're not the whole answer, but they may well be one of the options that are important," he said. "When you have people murdering, assassinating in these mass massacres, you have to stop that. And you do what you need to do if you need to try to stop it from the air or otherwise.

Britain, once Washington's only major battlefield ally in Iraq, announced it had already reached out to Iran in recent days. A U.S. official said meetings with Iran could come this week on the sidelines of separate international nuclear talks.

Iran has longstanding ties to Iraq's Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and other Shi'ite politicians who came to power in Iraq after the U.S. invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.

ISIL seeks a caliphate ruled on mediaeval Sunni Muslim precepts in Iraq and Syria, fighting against both Iraq's Maliki and Syria's Bashar al-Assad. It considers all Shi'ites to be heretics deserving death and has boasted of massacring hundreds of Iraqi troops who surrendered to its forces last week.

Its fighters are joined by other armed Sunni groups, who oppose what they say is oppression by Maliki's Shi'ite-led government in Baghdad.

ISIL fighters and allied Sunni tribesmen overran yet another town on Monday, Saqlawiya west of Baghdad, where they captured six Humvees and two tanks, adding to an arsenal of U.S.-provided armor they have seized from the disintegrating army.

These right wing morons aren't just maligning, denigrating and disparaging, they are outright liars. And when they are confronted with facts that they disagree with, they simply rewrite history, e.g. WMD's WERE found in Iraq, Bush didn't send troops into Iraq, Clinton did, Obama's a Muslim, Hillary said it didn't matter that Americans were killed in Benghazi, the list is endless.
