When Mitt Romney was of military age we were involved in the Vietnam conflict. Romney was both pro war and pro draft so what military branch did he serve in? He didn't STUPID! He decided to sit it out while others put their lives on the line. So who was the coward you vomitous cretin?
We don't have a hide under the desk and do nothing dumbass, we have one that weighs the consequences of any actions he might take unlike George W who went blundering into Iraq and destabilized the entire region and allowed Al Qaeda to enter the country which ultimately made it easier for them to wreak havoc in Syria, another area where they previously had no presence.
Abysmally ignorant, lying right winger is in fact redundant.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!

No, you cannot place words into my mouth.
Yes, intelligence believed Saddam was continuing his chemical weapon program. In theory Saddam was a threat to the whole middle east.
Did this pose a crippling deterrent to Iran --no. The UN sanctions restricting the sell of their oil was the most debilitating one for the country. Which with the help of China and Russia they continually skirted and launched into a nuclear program that was drawing concern from America as early as -if not earlier- January 1998. Really makes no difference if there was earlier concerns as it is glaringly apparent that even while Saddam was still ruling Iran was already well on their way with their nuclear enrichment program.
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.

The Bush legacy was low unemployment, recovering from 9/11 and a strong GDP.
The 111 Democrats who supported Bush's noble efforts in Iraq became weasels for nothing more than personal gain when the political winds changed.
That's part of the legacy, Homer.
The vast majority of Democrats in Congress refused to believe the warnings by both Bush and Bernanke that a housing market crisis was imminent is also part of the legacy.
That's also part of the legacy.
The Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Another part of the legacy.
But if you want to blame Bush for a sluggish six-year recovery with no end in sight, the ObamaCare fiasco and the world imploding all around us because of indecisive and weak leadership, you go right ahead until the cows come home if it keeps you happy inside your little bubble.
Just avoid things that are prickly or have tiny points.
lol! That's why he never showed up for the republican nominations eh?

Oh, and btw....

Now that the US economy is healthy again there is actually a move afoot in congress to bump the federal fuel tax from 18 cents to over 30 cents per gallon.
For what-- four weeks(?)-- gas prices went up under Bush? Yea, that was a big problem that affected us for years ....er weeks.

High gasoline prices have been continuous under the Obama administration and it would be denial of reality to claim anything else.

Iran didn't consider Saddam was such a big threat that it stopped them from financing their nuclear enrichment program. This was happening BEFORE Saddam was removed from power.
Your whole unicorn myth that Saddam was preventing this from happening is just a myth
Of all the dumbass things in the world to do the top one is to pretend NOTHING in the world has changed in the last ten years. Governments have toppled from power in the Mid-East and power struggles in oil rich South America countries have happened repeatedly. But, dumb Dave if only Saddam was in control of Iraq oil all would be cheap.
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.

South Dakota GOP wrote:
The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday.
The resolution says Obama has “violated his oath of office in numerous ways.” It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama’s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants.
“Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States,” the resolution reads.
Twenty of South Dakota's 66 counties had no delegates at the convention. Another 20 county delegations voted against the resolution by a combined total of 29 in favor, 118 against. Six counties were tied. And 20 counties voted for the resolution by a combined total of 141-37. Thirteen counties voted unanimously for the resolution, and 12 voted unanimously against it.
During the roll call, the vote was close throughout, but the No side appeared to be winning -- until Pennington County (home to Rapid City, the convention's host and possessing the single largest delegation there) voted 47-9 in favor.
The delegates in question were elected at the county and precinct level across the state, with some vacancies filled in by local county Republican Parties. I don't have a full list of all the delegates at the convention, and no data on how individual delegates voted, just the county total.
You can view all the county vote totals here.
Here's the full text of the resolution:
WHEREAS, The president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and protect it from all enemies both foreign and domestic,
WHEREAS, The president has violated his oath of office in numerous ways with the latest being the release of five terrorists in exchange for a soldier without consulting Congress as required by law,
WHEREAS, The president of the United States has willfully and wantonly lied to the American people telling them they can keep their insurance company, and they can keep their doctor under Obama Care, prior to an election,
WHEREAS, The president has ordered Federal Agencies to enact rules (laws) that threaten the security of the people of this great nation (EPA regulations) by passing Congress and usurping its authority,
WHEREAS, the president has abused his executive privilege usurping his authority as decided by numerous federal courts,
WHEREAS, The Constitution and Declaration of Independence are very clear on the authority of the President and the Federal Government, and when they violate their oath it is the right, it is the duty of the American people to act,
WHEREAS, America was designed as a Lex Rex (the law is king) rather than a Rex Lex (The King is the law) system of government. It is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
THEREFORE, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States.
South Dakota is right. BO should be impeached.

Six Years In -- Obama Still Complaining

“Many women can’t even get a paid day off to give birth,” he said today at a White House-sponsored conference in Washington.“That’s a pretty low bar. You would think that we would be able to take care of” that, he said.

“You’re not alone,” Obama said in remarks aimed a Americans who feel constrained by minimum wage rates, a lack of affordable child care or inflexible hours. These problems “cannot just be fixed by working harder or being an even better parent,” the president said.“All too often they are the result of outdated policies and old ways of thinking.”

Anyone stop cheering long enough to ask HIM why HE hasn't done anything about it?
