Blah...blah...blah. Clinton was the sitting president at the time of the attack on the USS Cole and apparently he knew who the attackers were immediately.
But if it makes you sleep better at night, just keep blaming Bush even if he wasn't elected yet.
How do you know that Clinton knew who was responsible for the Cole attack dingbat?
By the way, who was the sitting president who was warned of an imminent attack on US soil but didn't do a damned thing to prevent it?

'I searched the database and found 2,129 sports teams that reference Braves, Chiefs, Indians, Orangemen, Raiders, Redmen, Reds, Redskins, Savages, Squaws, Tribe and Warriors, as well as tribe names such as Apaches, Arapahoe, Aztecs, Cherokees, Chickasaws, Chinooks, Chippewas, Choctaws, Comanches, Eskimos, Mohawks, Mohicans, Seminoles, Sioux and Utes.(Not all teams with the names “Raiders” and “Warriors” are referencing Native Americans, but we spot-checked 20 schools with each name and a majority of each did.)'

Prepare for a Major Power Outage This Winter
Published Tue, Sep 2, 2014 | Tim Maverick, Staff Writer
Coal-Burning Power Plants Close: Prepare for Blackouts
With another polar vortex looming, the public should prepare for potential blackouts caused by the Obama administration’s plans to shut down coal-fired power plants.
You see, the record-breaking lows of last winter put a never-before-seen strain on the energy grid.
In fact, the grid nearly imploded last January, but thanks to back-up power supplied by less-frequently used coal-burning plants, it survived.
Now, though, Obama has scheduled these plants to be shut down before the start of winter.
January 2014: A Close Call
The PJM Interconnection is a regional electric transmission organization that serves a large swath of the United States from New Jersey to Illinois.
On January 7, 2014, it saw the largest-ever peak winter load of nearly 142,000 megawatts. In the rest of that month alone, 8 of the top 10 peak winter loads for PJM occurred.
PJM survived thanks to old, coal-fired power plants that are scheduled to be shut down by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) soon.
“Eighty-nine percent of the coal electricity capacity that is due to go offline was utilized as that backup to meet the demand this winter,” said Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski at a Senate hearing in April.
Forecast: Clean and Bitterly Cold
Unfortunately, for most of us in the eastern United States, many of the best meteorologists now say we should prepare for “Polar Vortex, the Sequel” this winter. Like last winter, intense cold and lots of snow are expected.
About 12,000 megawatts of coal-fired capacity are scheduled to be retired in January 2015 to fulfill regulations established five years ago.
Most of those coal-fired power plants are owned by American Electric Power (AEP ), the country’s biggest owner of coal-burning power plants. AEP is being forced to close down almost a quarter of its coal-fired generating plants over the next 10 months.
This will reduce the total capacity available for some of the country’s most densely populated regions just when the weather may once again push the demand for power to unprecedented levels.
AEP’s Chief Executive Officer, Nicholas Akins, told Congress last April,“This country did not just dodge a bullet [this winter]– we dodged a cannonball.”
Even the Commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Philip Moeller, believes the electric grid in parts of the country is “now already at the limit.”
This is not good news with regulations removing some of that already-strained generation capacity.
Will Common Sense Prevail?
AEP believes the EPA could be willing to extend the shutdown deadline date. But, the company also says that environmental groups will likely bring lawsuits under the Clean Air Act, forcing closures regardless.
Unless environmental groups give coal-powered plants a reprieve, a blackout is almost guaranteed in the event of another polar vortex winter.
Hopefully, the vortex stays out of town this winter. But if it doesn’t, look at the bright side: That frigid air you’ll be breathing is a little bit cleaner.
And “the chase” continues,
Tim Maverick
Obama has scheduled the plant closings???

He did take action you clueless twit! The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was the first piece of legislation out of the gate and it almost immediately turned the economy around. We dropped 8.9 percent of GDP in Q4 2008. We lost 800,000 jobs in January 2009. The stimulus was passed and then in the next quarter we saw the biggest jobs improvement in 30 years. It had the biggest middle-class tax cuts since the Reagan era.
The Affordable Care Act was enacted over a year later stupid.
You can piss and moan about Obamacare all you want Carol but as a result of it Insurance companies can no longer pick and choose who they cover, can't impose arbitrary lifetime caps on treatment and have to spend 80% of what they receive in premiums on actual health care.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!

'Incomes rose nicely in the 2010 to 2013 time frame for the top 10 percent of earners (who had a median income of $230,000 last year). They rose slightly, by 0.7 percent, for the 80th to 90th percentile of earners (median of $122,000). But real incomes fell for every other group of earners.'

Reagan actually did all those things Galt listed.
He "returned Americans' pride in their country, badly damaged by Carter. He ended the Carter recession and double-digit inflation. And he brought about the demise of the Iron Curtain and the Soviet Empire."
You have just been seriously misled.
Wrong again dumbass!
Americans pride in their country was much more damaged by the Watergate scandal than by anything Carter did or didn't do. I'm sure that Americans were very proud when it was revealed that the Reagan administration was selling arms to Iran and using the proceeds to fund a bunch of right wing drug running terrorists in Nicaragua aka the Contras.
It wasn't Carter's recession or more accurately stagflation nitwit; it actually started toward the end of the Nixon administration. By 1973 the inflation rate was 9 percent; the Dow-Jones average of industrial stocks fell 36 percent between November 1968 and May 1970; and the unemployment rate reached 6.6 percent by the end of 1970. Reagan's policies didn't have anything to do with improving the economy. It was the actions of the Fed under the leadership of Carter appointee Paul Volker who brought inflation under control by tightening the money supply.
Reagan also had very little to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was the culmination of containment policies that started with Harry Truman that brought this about. There are two individuals who had much more effect than Reagan; Karol Wojty&#322;a aka John Paul II and Lech Walesa who formed the Solidarity movement.

"Before the horrific attack on the World Trade Center, the international Islamic terrorist cabal revealed its insidious hand for all the world to see. The details of names, addresses and other information from this report should have provided “actionable intelligence” for any number of U.S. anti-terrorist operations. Instead, every scintilla of the information “was disregarded because nobody believed that Osama bin Laden or the Taliban could carry out such an operation.”

Yet what did Burger and Clinton say? very interesting...let's just wait until after the elections (1996)-Clinton was too busy screwing Monica and in turn the United States. Clinton and the democrats sold out the American people in more ways than one.

"This isn’t the first time the Clinton gang dropped the anti-terrorism ball. Judicial Watch previously obtained documents from the Department of State (“Terrorism/Osama bin Laden: Who’s Chasing Whom?” showing that as far back as 1996, the Clinton administration knew of and ignored bin Laden’s terrorist plans against the United States.

The New York Times, reporting on Judicial Watch’s find in 2005, noted:“State Department analysts warned the Clinton administration in July 1996 that Osama bin Laden’s move to Afghanistan would give him an even more dangerous haven as he sought to expand radical Islam “well beyond the Middle East,” but the government chose not to deter the move, newly declassified documents show.”

You can be sure the Clinton machine would prefer these revelations to go down the memory hole. But it is clear that both the failure to prevent the Sept. 11 attack and the Benghazi scandal can be added to the list of questions posed as that machine rolls on."
