<quoted text>You all are missing the point. Republicans can get maybe 45% of the vote so you better hope for a strong 3rd party candidate. Maybe that is the plan, the moderate wing runs a candidate and pulls the independent vote from Hillary and the Tea Bagging candidate wins with 42% of the vote. I guess it could happen.
You have to look at different scenarios, I mean Mitt had almost no path to the White House and with the way the Rep party is headed to the right they will have even less of a pool of voters.
Don't blame Homer.
No I got the point: democrats have and will vote for a dead person, they are that ignorant.

I’ll see you in New York?” This is what we are up against.

“First Baghdad — and then the Big Apple.


“The al Qaeda-affiliated insurgent leader threatening to topple Iraq’s government offered an ominous warning when he parted ways with the US soldiers who once held him prisoner:‘I’ll see you in New York.’

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who now leads the Sunni ultra-extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was held at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq for four years before he was handed over to the Iraqi government in 2009.”

This guy and the people he rides with are serious. It’s no idle threat.

The goal of Islam, even it’s only expressed by a radical minority, is to take over the world – submit to Islam or die.

The so-called moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out against those who advance Islam through terror. When confronted by ISIS, many Iraqi soldiers laid down their arms and joined them in the fight.

In addition to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi comments about bringing the Islamic fight to America,“In the past few months, as many as 15 Somali-American men have left the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in order to join radical jihadist insurgents in Syria, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” Our liberal immigration policies have made this possible.

Using Twitter, an American convert to Islam calls for Obama and his family to be beheaded.

That number doesn't place them anywhere near the nation's wealthiest but about on par with Cindy McCain the Budweiser Beer Distributor wife of Senator John McCain.

Timothy DeTillio

Dr. Subhi Al-Yazji, a Palestinian professor at the Islamic University in Gaza, says that radical Islamists are not motivated by money or are radicalized because of poverty. The motivation is jihad on a global scale.“In his book Perfect Soldiers: The 9/11 Hijackers: Who They Were, Why They Did It, former Los Angeles Times correspondent Terry McDermott noted that the hijackers were largely ‘young men from good backgrounds’ who were motivated by radical Islam and jihad.”

You know this is serious business when Sen. Dianne Feinstein is concerned enough to bring up the topic:

“Fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS, could be a direct threat to the United States' security if efforts aren't made to disrupt plotting before it happens, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein believes.

“‘We know there are at least 100 Americans that have gone to the area to fight who have an American passport, who are going to try to get back,’ Feinstein told CNN's Candy Crowley on ‘State of the Union’ Sunday.

“Officials know that the fighters can go back to Europe and if they are in a country where Visas are waived, can ‘come right into the United States,’ she said.

“‘This is where I think he we need to build our intelligence to see that we can disrupt the plot in this country before it happens,’ said Feinstein,‘because there will be plots to kill Americans.’”

Maybe when Muslims can’t escape the radicals by coming to the United States through our liberal immigration policies they will decide to take a real stand against them in their own countries.

You can't be serious. You are now denying you claimed Sadam's strength was his use of chemical weapons?
Wow, you have no shame in just bold face lying here.
You implied the sanctions placed in 1979 meant Iran was not selling oil. You said it to counter my claim the Iran was making more money in oil sales when Bush's war raised the price of oil.
With the additional income from oil & no longer having to spend money defending itself from Iraq, Iran had more resources in which to apply to nuclear enrichment & development programs.
Okay now the count down begins. I am starting at six making this number seven

Dave for the seventh time now claims Saddam could have stopped the Iran enrichment program that was already occurring while Saddam was in power.

The claim I said Iran wasn't selling oil is another one of those crazy windmills you made up so you could lamely knock them down. Grow up, everyone is on to your childish mis-stating what a person has said so you can lamely claim some stupid victory. YOU are one bold face lying here, but that is your game isn't it?

Now, you want to get into a discussion on what causes the price of oil.

The Iraq conflict did affect oil prices as this occurred at the same time there was problem in Venezuela--another oil rich country.

We saw the same thing occurring with the Libya civil war.

However, since the Iraq war..

"Other major factors contributing to higher prices included a weak dollar and the rapid growth in Asian economies and their petroleum consumption."

You should have KNOWN this Dave. Asians increasing demands for oil is well known

"Although not well publicized OPEC has for several years depended on a policy that amounts to world inventory management. Its primary reason for cutting back on production in November 2006 and again in February 2007 was concern about growing OECD inventories. Their focus is on total petroleum inventories including crude oil and petroleum products, which is a better indicator of prices that oil inventories alone."
http://www.wtrg.com/prices.htm

In 2006 and 2007 is were you see really big spikes in oil prices occurring.

As I already told you OPEC greatly influences the price of oil. This spike went down with the world wide recession but within a couple years it was back up again

NO, Dave, Saddam remaining in power would have had little to do with current oil prices it was absurd for you to claim it would have.

One of the lines that many progressives and TV talking heads are reiterating is that no one really wants to take away Americans' guns. Senator Dianne Feinstein apparently missed that directive. She admitted as far back as 1995 that she does, indeed, wish to take everyone's guns away from them.

In a 1995 broadcast of CBS' 60 Minutes, Feinstein admitted she would love to have instituted an "outright ban" on all guns.

This is the worst violation of the human right to water I have ever seen outside of the worst slums in the poorest countries in failed states of the global South,” said Maude Barlow, founder of the Blue Planet Project.

Thousands of families in Detroit, mostly black, have had their water cut off because they can't afford to pay water rates that are nearly double the average in the rest of the country.


In March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department announced that it would shut off water service for 1,500 to 3,000 customers every week if their water bills were not paid. Clearly not understanding the root of the problem, the City Council just last week approved an 8.7-percent water rate increase.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the average water bill is $75, nearly double the average of $40 nationwide.

The DWSD says that more than 80,000 residences, in a city with a population of 680,000, are in arrears on their water bills. According to CBS, that means nearly half of Detroit families can't pay for their water.

The DWSD hasn't said how many have been cut off, but it numbers in the thousands, according to activist groups like the Blue Planet Project, which have appealed to the United Nations to step in to ease the "humanitarian crisis."

Blue Planet and several other groups have sent a letter to Catarina de Albuquerque, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation, urging the United Nations to become involved and stop the city of Detroit from continuing to shut off water.

The Detroit People’s Water Board, the Blue Planet Project, the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization and Food and Water Watch have also made appeals to the state of Michigan and the federal government.

There are thousands of families, including those with sick and elderly members, who cannot bathe, cook or even flush their toilets, Barlow said. "This is unprecedented," she added.

Fox25 in Oklahoma City reported that sources in the city claimed the reason for the 119 percent increase in rates at the root of the situation include a decline of 75 percent of federal assistance for water infrastructure since the 1970s, leading to aging infrastructure that has not been replaced, and stricter water standards that require expensive new systems and technology to meet.

So in a word, 40-plus years of liberalism.

Liberal politics have led Detroit to a poverty rate of 40 percent, a water system that is failing faster than the circulatory system in a 400-pound mayonnaise factory taste tester, and ultimately a decision to squeeze the last drop of blood out of the poor and drop the carcasses like flies in a spider's web.

Bush signed off on the Iraq War. you know, the war he wanted from the first day he was in the WH. oil, revenge, Cheney's decades long hard on, whatever the reasons, no history book is going to say that Clinton started the Iraq War.
you need to go back to Bosnia, when Clinton like an Idiot, supported the moslems. the Clinton administration aimed to support the Muslims in Bosnia in order to repair the perception of anti-Moslem bias that they believed tarnished U.S. image in the Islamic world. Stupid elites like Clinton need to be liked, even though the moslems would never approve of the U.S. but just like O'bama he thought he was the 'one' who could change the moslems. Instead Bill Clinton instigated a wave of ethnic cleansing, and established a terrorist stronghold threatening all of Europe and the United States. Who cares if the moslems hate us, they always have and they always will. Barack Hussein O'bama and moslem roots have inflamed the moslems even more-why is that?
Clinton and his diplomats were oblivious to Muslim words and actions:“The Islamic movement must, and can, take over power as soon as it is morally and numerically so strong that it can not only destroy the existing non-Islamic power, but also build up a new Islamic one.” It's the same crap with all the moslems. Clinton and O'bama for what ever reason need to be loved by moslems. It is never going to happen. You were probably thinking that the Monica Lewinsky affair was Clinton’s biggest scandal. No, Bill Clintons' biggest scandal was establishing strongholds of moslems practicing islamic terrorism in Bosnia in 1995 and in Kosovo in 1999.

You ran from my question, Skippy.
Are you admitting George W Bush lied about Iraq having chemical weapons & a nuclear program?
The fact that Iran considered Sadam a threat meant they spent resources on defending them selves from Sadam.
I never said Iran didn't have some money to invest in things like military & nuclear ambitions. I said that by taking out Sadam, Iran had a lot more resources now not worried about Sadam & more revenue from their sales of now higher priced oil.
When Bush invaded Iraq, it drive up the price of oil. For you to deny that just shows how stupid you are.

Wasn't the Arab Spring primarily about over throwing dictators & absolute Monarchies for a more democratic government.

You know how your buddy's last excuse for invading Iraq was spreading democracy. I thought you whiners loved democracy. Now you don't support it?

Wow, Obama advocating for democracy is bad?
