Proving only what lies, fear and war will do to most People. By starting a war with the wrong country and a number of well placed lies and given the mood after 911 Bush and his band of chickenhawks managed to get hundreds of thousands of innocent people killed in order to maintain their power and greed. Just like in sports you are only as good as your last game. The bush regime will go down in history as the most pathetic and clueless of any in our history, while you just might hold that title on here.

Fighting erupts in Lebanese border town held by Islamic extremists from Syria

Fighting erupted Wednesday in a Lebanese border town held by Islamic extremists from neighboring Syria after a negotiated truce collapsed overnight. Muslim clerics launched new efforts to broker another cease-fire in what has been the most serious spillover from Syria's civil war.
Lebanon's former prime minister, meanwhile, announced that Saudi Arabia is granting $1 billion in aid to the Lebanese army to support its fight against militants.
The initial truce, brokered on Tuesday, was meant to end days of fighting in the eastern town of Arsal and allow for negotiations for the release of captive Lebanese soldiers.

Yes, if an Al Qaeda member shows himself in public. Nowhere in the world other than the caves on the Afghan-Pakistan border did Al Qaeda have a visible appearance.
If an Al Qaeda doesn't show themselves, they're not Al Qaeda. When Al Qaeda showed themselves when Bush was in office, Bush blew their head off.
Obama didn't have a clue the bin Laden raid was even happening. 40 minutes before the SEAL team landed in bin Laden's compound it was leaked to Valerie Jarrett the operation was happening. She immediately issued an abort order with Presidential authority, which Panetta ignored, and was later explained as having been because someone looked at the weather map for the wrong day, and then she summonned Obama from the golf course where he though he was going to spend the entire day... on the day he's going to invade an allied country with a SEAL team and kill bin Laden. Give me a break. Obviously he didn't even have a clue it was happening.
That is the "longest forty minutes" Obama talks about. If Obama knew the raid was happening, it would have been the longest goddam week of his life, studying contingencies and approving alternate plans and alternate recovery options for the SEAL team and preparing diplomatic positions if somehow Valerie Jarrett discovered the operation was happening and told Al Qaeda about it.
If Valerie Jarrett knew what was happening (thus, if Obama knew what was happening) the same thing would have happened on the bin Laden mission that happened on the very next "secret" mission of SEAL Team Six where a lone Taliban was waiting for them with a rocket launcher at the "secret" location where the helicopter descended to disembark the SEAL Team.
You can bet Valerie Jarrett wasn't going to be surprised again after SEAL Team Six killed bin Laden. She is the actual President, and you can bet she was on top of every secret mission being planned. It looks like she helped Al Qaeda get some revenge and great PR when she told them where the next SEAL Team Six mission was going to land. The Taliban had a lone person with a rocket launcher waiting for the SEAL team at the "secret" destination.
When Bush was in office their were Al Qaeda branches in many countries in the Middle East & Africa. They were not holed up in that cave as you claimed. Bush didn't blow their heads off.

Bush declared the murderer of 3000 Americans on 9-11 to be irrelevant. He didn't give a rat's ass where he was.

Look at how you whiners have to lie about the killing of Bin Laden. Pathetic

Death Valley, Calif., which is known for being the world’s hottest location, maxed out at a relatively chilly 89 degrees on Sunday. This temperature – nearly 30 degrees below average – was its coolest high temperature on record for the date by a whopping 15 degrees. The previous record of 104 was set in 1945.
This was only the eighth time that a high in the 80s has occurred in Death Valley in July or August, and there hasn’t been a high less than 90 since 1984. Weather records in Death Valley go back to 1911.
Locations that were hotter than Death Valley yesterday include Spokane Wash.(93), Missoula, Mont.(91), Casper, Wy.(92), and Boise, Idaho (99).
The average June high in Death Valley is 110 degrees, July is 117 degrees, and August is 115. This makes Sunday’s high temperature a ridiculous 26 degrees below normal.
Death Valley set the world’s record hottest temperature of 134 degrees on July 10, 1913.
An excellent example of the radical change in temperature caused by global warming.

Italy slides back into recession with surprise GDP fall

Italy fell back into recession for the third time in five years, data showed Wednesday, with gross domestic product dropping 0.2% in the second quarter of 2014 from the previous three months.

National statistics institute Istat said Wednesday that the decline in Italy’s GDP during the second quarter stemmed from a contraction in all three main sectors of the economy — agriculture, manufacturing and services.

Iraqi Yazidis stranded on isolated mountaintop begin to die of thirst

Stranded on a barren mountaintop, thousands of minority Iraqis are faced with a bleak choice: descend and risk slaughter at the hands of the encircled Sunni extremists or sit tight and risk dying of thirst.

Humanitarian agencies said Tuesday that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar two days earlier. But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.

Unable to dig deep into the rocky mountainside, displaced families said they have buried young and elderly victims of the harsh conditions in shallow graves, their bodies covered with stones. Iraqi government planes attempted to airdrop bottled water to the mountain on Monday night but reached few of those marooned.

It wasn't anything about being against poor white people doofus; it was all about Palin being without a doubt the most ignorant individual to run for national office. This is the person who thought that the 1st Amendment shielded her from media criticism, thought the Vice President ran the Senate and couldn't describe what the Bush Doctrine was if her life depended on it.
She was put on the ticket as a sop to the extreme right and was one of the reasons McCain lost.
Who's actually at war with poor white people or poor people of any race for that matter? Raising the minimum wage would pull thousands out of poverty but that's been blocked by the GOP. Extending Medicaid would help many low income individuals get health coverage but it's been blocked in states with Republican governors and legislatures.
You're an idiot!
Do you think that Biden is 'smarter than a 5th grader'? How dumb can a vice president be? "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said,'Look, here's what happened." –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn't president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008. "Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs." --Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008. "Stand up, Chuck, let 'em see ya." –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008. "His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul." --Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010. "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I'm not joking." --Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006. "A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!" --Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008. Several reasons McCain lost,none of them are Palin,most of them have to do with the fact that he supported the same liberal ideas held by Obama. How dumb can a president be? "The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system." "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the Post Office that's always having problems." –attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while simultaneously undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009. "The Cambridge police acted stupidly." "I've now been in 57 states — I think one left to go." The Democrat party exploits poor people. To help poor people they need to encourage job development not raising taxes. Raising the minimum wage will do nothing but cause inflation. People need jobs,not higher taxes or higher costs of living.

Here's another Obamacare "disaster's a-comin'" alert....
The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found an overall drop of 4 percentage points in the share of uninsured residents for states accepting the law's core coverage provisions. Those are states that expanded their Medicaid programs and also built or took an active role managing new online insurance markets.
States whose leaders still object to "Obamacare" are seeing much less change.
http://news.msn.com/us/poll-obama-health-law-...
Who woulda thought it would backfire the most in the states that played along?
Now what, Patrick? Remember that millions who are now insured by their employer will be receiving cancellations around October.
Hope most of them live in the states who rejected Obamacare. Apparently, they're going to be better off than the states who welcomed it with open arms.
Talk about your basic twist of fate...
Backfire? How is "a significant drop in the number of uninsured residents in states that fully embraced the law's coverage expansion" a backfire?

"Those states that implement the law's major mechanisms are seeing a significantly greater decline in their uninsured rates," said Dan Witters, research director for the poll.
