Hillary's book about her less than inspiring stint as Sec of State cannot even inspire Progressives to buy the book and that is the rights fault?
That is a stretch, Dave.
I never said such a thing.

But hey, that is your style. To lie about what people say.

I said Palin's book sales have to do with her dumbass base who thinks she has anything worthwhile to say.

You compared the book sales. I merely explained why Pailin's book sales were higher.

I would support Hilliary in 2016 but I have no urge to buy the book.

Its the same thing as when you idiots claim Fox's viewership has anything to do with their truthfulness.

The purpose of Hilliary's book is to put everything out there now to be discussed prior to any campaign. That is obvious.

The purpose of Palin's book is for Palin to make money by duping her base of right whiners like you.

Nope, nada absolutely not so. What happened is US generals and military advisors told Obama they needed 20K-25K left behind to supervise and help the new government of Iraq. Obama said no. So the generals and military advisors cut it down to 10K as the lowest number they could still be effective to maintain and help the new government of Iraq. Obama came back and said not more than 3K. The military explained that wouldn't work they would be spread too thin and sitting ducks if there was a insurgent cluster but still Obama wouldn't budge he also wasn't interested in engaging the Iraqi government in any talks.
Do you know of one time Obama called and talked the Mailiki? Not once before ISIS took over the country.
Mailiki made a formal request for air support about 6 weeks ago now don't you read a newspaper?

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Was_Lyndon_B._Johns...
Lyndon Johnson was perhaps the most liberal president the US has ever had. He was known as the heir apparent of FDR, but easily surpassed FDR's New Deal with his Great Society. Early off he had to pander to his conservative constituents in Texas, but in his heart was always a true liberal.
In the 1960s, Vietnam was a war that nearly ripped America in two. I vividly remember the 1964 presidential election between President Lyndon B. Johnson and Senator Barry Goldwater from Arizona.
Johnson was a card carrying socialist who campaigned on ending the war in Vietnam and bringing all of our boys home safe and sound. Goldwater was also against the war, but said that if we were forced to fight that we would do whatever it took to win even if it meant dropping an atomic bomb. Johnson was labeled a peace-loving dove and Goldwater was labeled a hawk that wanted to wage war. Consequently, Johnson won re-election by with one of the largest landslide victories in history.
In the mid 1970s, I had the privilege to sit on a committee with Sen. Goldwater and talked with him about the 1964 election. He told me that he preached the only way to peace was to WIN the war and get out. Johnson had no intention of winning the war rather he sacrificed thousands of American lives to help him play into the socialist agenda of the United Nations. He told me one day that he accused Johnson of lying and being a war criminal to his face and Johnson told him that if he ever repeated that claim publicly that Goldwater would NOT live to regret it. True or not, thatís what Goldwater told me and he was one of the most honest politicians I ever knew, which is why he rankled so many feathers of those he spoke about.
After winning re-election, Johnson escalated the war effort in Vietnam instead of peacefully withdrawing as he promised. He followed all of the UN leadership instructions to the letter, which was devastating since communists sat on the UN committee that approved all of our military action and we were fighting communists in Vietnam. The people that succeeded in the war did so without UN approval so the communists didnít know what we were doing and Johnson promptly fired them. As a result of Johnsonís leadership, nearly 50,000 Americans were killed in Vietnam under his watch and countless more were wounded. I always believed that Johnson should have been charged and convicted of war crimes against the US.
Fifty years later, we have another socialist Democrat who ran for president claiming he was against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and that he would do everything possible to bring our boys home safe and sound. Like Johnson, Obama lied. Yeah I know we supposedly ended our war efforts in Iraq, even though we still have troops there, but that withdrawal plan had been initially started by former President George W. Bush, even though Obama takes full credit for it.
As for the war in Afghanistan, Obama actually escalated the war by increasing the number of troops. In less than a month of assuming the presidency, Obama began increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan. Like Johnson, fifty years earlier, Obama declared the increases were necessary for security purposes.

That would be the programmed version to your illogical thinking.Which party tries to tell women what and how to do with their bodies, which party tries to push their brand of religion down your throat, which party tries to dictate who can find happiness with who, who can marry who, where to place their brand of democracy, attack whoever they please as if that's their right?
Which party promotes death through their love and blind loyalty to the NRA, which party is the party of hatred, racism, and bigotry. Before you answer you just might want to read some of your cohorts on here. Which party ignores the poor and the needy, along with healthcare of fellow Americans. Which party is against raising the minimum wage, pretty much against every thing that is good for America...Which party announced from day one of Obama's presidency that their single goal was to defeat him..
This in the face of the worst mess ever left a president...Which they were largely responsible for. Two lie induced botched wars, Wall Street in shambles, unemployment running wild, the economy in a total mess, I could go on for ever and baggers like you would never get it. Because you have pretty much progressed to that of an Ideologue and self thinking is forbidden. Hell just read carol each day.
There you go simply repeating dishonest leftwing liar rhetoric.

Most people are against 'late-term' abortion. You on the other hand have selected the most leftwing radical for president - Obama who supports late-term abortion.

I don't care who marries who but unlike you, I do not support leftwing activist judges who overturn the votes and will of the people.

I believe in states rights, you do not. You believe in Taliban typre total control of the masses by a small group of elites.

You believe in leaders who lie and I do not.

You are an old zombie failure and are a lying teet sucking Democrat commie. I want government out of my business and not telling me I must buy Obamacare.

Many of you old retarded Democrats here knock capitalism, Commie.

You are destroying a great country and I want to stop you, Commie.

Bush Cheney are both proven cowards that were willing to sacrifice and lie hundreds of thousands into dying for their own self gain. Now we are still stuck with their mess.
The United States entered the Afghan War on October 7, 2001. During the nearly 13 years of US involvement, 19,793 American military personnel have been wounded. From October 2001 through January 2009, only 2,698 were wounded under Bushís watch. From February 2009 through May 2014, 17,095 were wounded under Obamaís watch. The difference is huge Ė 13.6% wounded under Bush and 86.4% wounded under Obama.
The same pretty much holds true for the number of US military personnel killed in the Afghan War. The total number of troops killed so far is 2,198. From October 2001 through January 2009, only 569 (25.9%) died under Bushís watch. From February 2009 to May 2014, 1,629 (74.1%) have died under Obamaís watch.
In 2012, Obama negotiated to extend keeping troops in Afghanistan through 2024. At the time, we had only been involved for 11 years, but Obama extended it another 12 years. In November 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the US has finally negotiated with Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the extension to 2024.
For what reason? For security purposes. I think the only reason Karzai agreed to the extension is that Obama promised him billions of dollars in aid. Obama is willing sacrifice more American troops in the longest war in our history just so he can continue to drain our taxpayer dollars into a country that hates us and would love to destroy us. Basically, Obama cares more for his Muslim buddies in Afghanistan than he does for the lives of our military personnel that he is so willing to slaughter and maim.
And like Johnson, I believe that Obama should be charged, tried and convicted of war crimes against the American people.

The Coming Climate Crash

Lessons for Climate Change in the 2008 Recession

By HENRY M. PAULSON Jr.

THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting. And if thereís one thing Iíve learned throughout my work in finance, government and conservation, it is to act before problems become too big to manage.

For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nationís financial markets. When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do.

Weíre making the same mistake today with climate change. Weíre staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear and growing more urgent as the risks go unchecked.

This is a crisis we canít afford to ignore. I feel as if Iím watching as we fly in slow motion on a collision course toward a giant mountain. We can see the crash coming, and yet weíre sitting on our hands rather than altering course.

We need to act now, even though there is much disagreement, including from members of my own Republican Party, on how to address this issue while remaining economically competitive. Theyíre right to consider the economic implications. But we must not lose sight of the profound economic risks of doing nothing.
