No one was talking about White house protocol dumbo. I was talking about war mongers like you and most baggers. Bush never ever attended any of the 4, 500 that he sacrificed. Trying to keep peace in our nation has become far greater now with the crazed baggers racist and bigoted morons who look for any and everything to promote their agenda, while defaming our president, even at the risk of American lives as they have already proven. Open you eyes dummy.

Just in case some on the left want to argue against the success of austerity measures in some European countries:
"For years, Britain has had controversial austerity measures in place. Olivier Blanchard, the International Monetary Fund's chief economist, likened them to playing with fire. This past week, the IMF published its World Economic Forecast and concluded the fastest-growing economy of any rich country in the world is Britain's. Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, led the U.K.'s austerity measures."

Personally I preferred it when Bush golfed, it meant he wasn't in there screwing things up. Given the fact that you rightwingers hate everything the president does you'd think you'd be buying his greens fees.

You seem to have great difficulty understanding the term "Boots on the ground" I can understand that since you are clueless as are most righties on here since you never saw fit to serve...There are specific personnel there to protect us an our interest. Certainly they are armed, how else could they protect? I trust this administration far more than the two bozos that lied us into this mess. Wake up dumbass.You seem way to stupid to be able to understand the simplest of FACTS...Providing they don't suit your agenda of course.
Boots on the Ground
To put boots on the ground means to have soldiers invade an area in order to determine what and who is actually present in that area, since using remote methods does not always provide reliable results. Having boots on the ground in an area means to have soldiers there in order to control what is happening in that area, especially to prevent opposing forces from carrying out and launching operations from there.
When the Department of Homeland Security put boots on the ground in the city center yesterday in order to assess the effectiveness of their drone strikes, they were met with a larger number of survivors than they expected. In fact, their company-sized detail were wiped out to the last man before a rescue and reprisal unit could be deployed. Actually, since all members of the reprisal unit declined to deploy to the city center, it was not deployed at all. This probably will end DHS attempts to have boots on the ground in the city center indefinitely due to thinning numbers of DHS members, both from battlefield casualties and desertions to the other side.

Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.
Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.
Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.
Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans.

Kevin the Third Grader
A teacher asks the kids in her 3rd grade class:
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
Little Kevin says: "I wanna start out as a Marine Pilot, then be a
billionaire, go to the most expensive clubs, find me the Finest whore, give her a Ferrari worth over a million bucks, an apartment in Copacabana, a mansion in Paris, a jet to travel throughout Europe, an Infinite Visa Card, and all the while banging her like a loose screen door in a hurricane."
The teacher, shocked, and not knowing what to do with this horrible response from little Kevin, decides not to acknowledge what he said and simply tries to continue with the lesson ....
"And how about you, Sarah?"
"I wanna be Kevin’s whore."

A veteran law enforcement officer called for an end to the prohibition of heroin and other opiates in a Boston Globe column.
Jack Cole, a police officer for 26 years who is now chairman of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, said his 14-year experience as an undercover narcotics officer taught him that police caused more harm than good for drug addicts.
“The damage came from people — cops — doing what I did: dragging buyers and sellers away from their families and slamming them into the criminal justice system, depriving both them and their neighborhoods of all hope,” Cole wrote in the column published Sunday.“I witnessed people we disparagingly called ‘junkies’ dying with needles in their arms not because heroin is a poison but because the heroin was poisoned. I did more harm than good, and the harder my colleagues and I tried, the more damage we did.”

(if this posts twice, it's twice as nice...)

It SHOULD have occurred to you that only liberals elevate an elected official to the level of messiah. An inept inexperienced one at that.

Reagan was already a proven leader and put the country first. He was respected and admired by many. He knew his role was to represent America - not just those who elected him.

Obama was not a leader before he took office and put himself and his ideology first. Yet, he was still labeled as some kind of "savior" by liberals desperate to be saved from themselves.

Conservatives don't need or want government or government officials to save us from anything. Many of us look to a higher power to govern ourselves.

George Washington knew the "great experiment" hinged on Americans governing themselves through the consciousness of a higher power.

Communists look to government and government officials as their collective conscience. They neither have to think for themselves or govern themselves and a higher power is seen as a threat.

That's the big difference between our respective ideologies.

They are honoring the Constitution which guarantees due process and a right to a fair trial by your peers.

Since when Galt in favor of out of control cops? You've been whining about them for years.
