This is just a blatant LIE.

barock supposedly went to and even taught law school. He knew that when you change regulations relative to a contract, you void it. When he said you could keep your policy, doctor, etc., he knew it to be false.

The mistake was yours for believing the biggest liar in history, you fool.

Yes, but his entire success in federal politics is because people liked him on a personal basis. They liked the fact that he was a Mulatto, a family man, he spoke well, and he dressed nice.
HIs mistake however was thinking that his likability and race would make him invincible to criticism and failed policies. If not for Commie Care, he would still have unbelievable numbers in the polls. Actually, polls show that people still personally like him in spite of his multiple failures and scams.
People were fine with Benghazi because it didn't directly effect them. Same with Fast and Furious. Same with the IRS scandal. But Commie Care? That effected a lot of people.
If you were not effected by Commie Care, chances are you know somebody that was. Either they lost their health insurance, lost their job, increased their employer provided insurance so high that the employer started taking out much higher employee contributions. But a lot of people were hurt by all this, so now his failed policies are overriding his personal popularity because those policies are hitting home with a lot of people. That's why the polls are showing a rapidly growing dislike of his job performance.
Bull. The appeal for Obama was he wasn't a Republican.

That will remain the criteria

As stupid as you are dumb:
The Bush economy:
"Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years have been disastrous. But as the nearby chart shows, Mr. Bush inherited a recession. The dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11, the corporate scandals and Sarbanes-Oxley. Mr. Bush's original tax-cut proposal was designed in part as insurance against such a downturn."
"However, to win over Senate Democrats, Mr. Bush both phased in the tax rate reductions and settled for politically popular but economically feckless tax rebate checks. Those checks provided a short-term lift to consumer spending but no real boost to risk-taking or business investment, which was still recovering from the tech implosion. By late 2002, the economy was struggling again -- which is when Mr. Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts."
"This time the tax rate reductions were immediate, and they included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. As the tax cuts became law in late May 2003, the recovery began in earnest. Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy."
"Nonetheless, the budget deficit did fall mid-decade, as tax revenues soared with the expansion. In fiscal 2007, the deficit hit $161 billion, or an economically trivial 1.2% of GDP. That seems like a distant memory after the bailout blowout of the last few months, but the point is that the Bush tax cuts aren't responsible for the deficits. Before the recession hit, federal tax revenues had climbed above their postwar average of 18.3% of GDP."

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.
It was over looked being it was not relevant to Bush & Republicans destroying the economy

The cultists are unable to present ANYTHING with specifics of a planned attack. They continue to go to this dry well. My question always remains the same, what would your course of action have been?
Would you have closed down all commercial, passenger and private air travel? How about military?
How long would you have shut down the American economy in preparation for an attack for which there were no specifics? What would prevent the terrorists from just waiting until commerce was resumed?
There was no specific information in regards to the 9-11 attack, unlike the attack at the Boston Marathon where the two terrorists were named by the Russians as being dangerous. All Obama had to do was have someone look on their Facebook page, take note they had recently travelled to an extremist country, and maybe....just maybe...started using the NSA for more than spying on little old ladies in the Senate...
There was credible evidence of a planned attack, it was in Boston, 2013, not NYC 2001.
Bush ignored the memo in his Aug 6 2001 briefing. Same as you're doing here

Also with Fort Hood as well. That clown was in our military right under our governments noses. Then the empty suit called the attack workplace violence so none of the families of these poor souls could collect any compensation. We taxpayers paid him for the entire time he sat in jail until conviction which was somewhere in the range of $300,000.
If Bush knew about 911, then Clinton knew about the Oklahoma City bombing. That's how ridiculous this all is. These Bin Laden threats were coming out since 1997, and Clinton did absolutely nothing about it because like Bush, there were no specifics about any attack. No president can shut down the entire country over some "threats." If that were the case, we would be on lockdown every other day.
Bush was giver ample warning Aug 6 2001 from the FBI, CIA and terrorism experts he ignored

Yep, and here is what it said according to CNN:
Saturday, April 10, 2004 Posted: 6:51 PM EDT (2251 GMT)
The following is a transcript of the August 6, 2001, presidential daily briefing entitled Bin Laden determined to strike in US. Parts of the original document were not made public by the White House for security reasons.
http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/04/10/aug...
Now show me anywhere it is stated that Bush knew of 911 before it happened. What it said is that Bin Laden was planning an attack on the US. No ship? He's been doing that since 1997.

2003 was when Bush directed HUD to purchase 0 down loans. The Financial industry grew as a result. That spured the collapse

The OK City bombing- by a right wing Christian- was the work of a single individual.

Happy to see that proof of any warning.

Of course, Section Eight: that would be for you a first.
