"Get thee behind me, Satan." And no, that is neither a reference nor an allusion, it is a plea that I not issue profanity to my computer in response to your refusal to admit you were completely wrong. But what else is new? Respond away, I'm done with kicking a dead horse. Note the use of an idiom.

You kicked his a**, no two ways about it. You should have made of his legs even after cutting them off. With one longer than the other he now will bounce up and down as he stumbles along.

Is it because the initial news that was released while details and analysis were still happening wasn't perfectly accurate?
Since when did Republicans require accuracy from their news?

Even little ole me can answer that quesiton. It was the blatant false info put out by Obama and his hench woman about the sorry video. And even after knowing it was a lie, Obama the traitor stood by his story.
Now he says he doesnt know.
how can that be

Nope, I'm afraid the current occupant has saved Jimmy Carter from that position.
How can that be??? When Bush has shown that his incompetence and lies killed thousands of good young Americans, using Bush fiction as the reason. Add to that he also was the main player in the killing of the economy and that result drove down home values putting the American dream on hold for millions and drove interest rates to zero. At least Carters failed attempt in Iran was to SAVE Americans and if you had money during the Carter years you got a nice return with interest rates at historic highs. And it didn't kill the housing industry because people still had money to buy homes. Bush or Carter, thatís not even a fair fight its Carter by MILES.

I don't expect a reply, nothing you can say to defend the indefensible.

Except that return you received wasn't worth as much because when you have inflation, the "real value" of your money drops. And I wouldn't argue with your conclusion at all. The topic was "who is the worst president ever" - you stated "Bush or Carter,...its Carter by MILES." - I agree completely.

Nope, it's because the administration KNEW their story wasn't true, but continued to repeat it over and over and over for weeks.

On September 12th I watched Obama's briefing and he called it an attack. It's there in the transcripts.

Romney himself claimed he would politicize it, and did. McCain fed fuel onto that in an effort to create a new committee position.

This is just a Republican witch-hunt.

You have resorted to a strawman argument.
Nope, the post never said ALL business owners are amoral, the post said that business, by its very nature, is amoral. Unfortunatley, history has shown that a percentage of people will follow the path of least reisitence without regard for their neighbor next door, down stream, or down wind.
To temper the inherent amorality of business people act collectively, through government, to impose limits on business. Many times these limits, or regulations, internalize the cost of doing business thus effecting the potential profits of a business.
Whether it's the cost of exit doors that are unlocked and open outward, or the cost of locating a fertizler plant away from a populated area, business would much prefer not to incur these costs as they are a direct drain on profits.
No straw man on my side, this was your post:
----------
"No that means that the purpose of the business is to make money:
- through any means possible,
- externalizing all costs onto the taxpayers, neighbors, and/or customers,
- with no concern for pollution, injury, and damages they create,
- paying the absolute minimum in wages.

That is the purpose of a business.
That means you have to regulate businesses as the amoral entities they are.

Nothing wrong with businesses - they are just amoral entities designed to maximize profit and avoid personal responsibilities for the owners. "
----------
"through any means possible"
"with no concern"
"paying the absolute minimum in wages"
"businesses the amoral entities they are"
"they are just amoral entities"

Except that a business is not sentient and makes none of those decisions - the people who run the businesses make those decisions. Consequently, you should have qualified your statement that SOME business owners may act in the above mentioned ways. But you said "you have to regulate businesses as the amoral entities they are" which translates to "you have to regulate business owners as the amoral entities they are" - if you didn't mean it, you shouldn't have said it. Just saying.

What a dunce. The democraps forced on Bush the housing mortgage debacle. The intel on Iraq went all the way back to Clinton and most all the democraps in Congress believed it at the time also. You libtards only have a one way tunnel sight, hang everything on Bush. And your hindsight is no better than your foresight. You only have one sight you are focused on, Obamas Butt.

From the huffington post, and all conservative patriots know the libtards live and die by the huffington post.

4-11-2013, Forty-seven percent of Americans approved of Obama's job performance.

4-23-2013, Forty-seven percent of Americans now approve of Bush's presidency. I expect by the time his term expires, his numbers will only include 90% of the black people, and all the white libtards which aint that many, like maybe 10-15% that just make a hellva lot of worthless noise.

There was evidence of disgorging on their website while posting Bush's numbers.

Well now Obama called it an attack, What else could he call it? A square dance? a chit-chat? You are surely struggling with this post cause it is evident you dont even believe you wrote the words here.

Keep telling yourself Obama was innocent, Obama was innocent, when all the time everyone knows the dunce mouthpiece from the U.N. was following orders from Obama to blame it on the video. She thought she would get another job and her sucking up and lying for Obama cost her that job, as the Repubs made clear she would not be confirmed for dog catcher.

Oh, he meant it alright. One could track down many posts where he and IO have shown they are truly socialists oriented, and believe the purpose of business is to serve the State and the people who live and depend on the State for substance. Business has no businees making decisions, government should make all the decisions, take mopst of their profit and give to the socialists dependents.

They don't want to give credit to Obama for killing Bin Laden, but suggest that he is directly responsable for the death of theses Americans. They want to have their cake and eat it too; like a fat kid.

Here is another example of Obama spinning B.S.
Seems that he has forgotten all about his administrations dealings with the American Governments running guns. That was called Fast and Furious by the Justice Department. Hundreds of weapons were furnished to Mexican drug gangs to kill hundreds of Mexicans and one of our Border Agents. His speeches are hollow and deceiving, and he can say anything without the people laughing him off the stage. This speech is laughable and totally a bunch of bull. All he wants to do is take peoples rights to bear arms away from them.
He condemns the guns which he claims to support. Then blames his own country for Mexico's drug gang problems. What a wonderful president that gives his support to his own country by blaming it.
He then ignores the past when his administration passed hundreds of guns to the Mexican Drug gangs to kill hundreds of Mexican people. I guess we will just forget that one .
How anyone can take this guy serious, trust anything that he says, and can't see what he is beyond me. Watch his hilarious speech below.

Moral starts with the business owners. There was a code that was enforced in the past that protected the employee and in return the employees took care of the business. This FREE trade sh*t and deregulation has screwed this country. Couple that with a wave of mexicans and our wages have went back 20 years. Greed will make anyone stray from what's right. There has to be rules to business even in a recession. If not, a few get rich and the rest of us starve. Rich people kill their kids and sponses for insurance money. Do you think they would hesitate to poison a small community in Georgia? I don't. If the business owners would stop hiring illegal aliens then there would be more jobs for Americans. The business owners are the backbone of this country, but are not to be trusted. Not because they are bad people, but because they are human.

Great post.

Get over Benghazi? And then THIS POST???? I am shocked at you. You truly are sick. You can make such arrogant statements and call yourself an American. Astounding. The maddening thing is if a conservative had been in office and Benghazi occurred, you liberal socialist commies would be shooting people down in the streets. Your statements about Behghazi just to protect that scum of a president we have is lower than I ever thought you would go.
As for your last sentence, everyone knows how accurate and popular MSNBC is. Hanging on by its fingernails.

They just can't admit that because Bush was a Right Wing Wacko's dream president.
- he started lunatic, unfunded, and illegal wars,
- he cut taxes for the richest,
- he exploded War Department spending,
- he "privatized" war making using mercenary companies,
- he cut programs for average Americans,
- he signed Medicare Part D, knowing it cost hundreds of billions more than admitted - while claiming to be fiscally conservative,
- he doubled the national debt,
- he deregulated business, especially banks,causing economic calamities,
- he caused the greatest transfer of wealth from the middle class to the √ľberrich in modern history,
- he took a budget surplus to a 1.4 Trillion Dollar annual deficit, and
- he created the largest most devastating recession since the Great Depression.
If they admit those facts - they admit Right Wing Wacko policies, especially economic policies, are complete disasters when implemented.
Human nature being as it is - they'll never admit what's obvious to the rest of us.
What has Obama done?

It's really a shame that Obama went over there and killed those men. Oh wait! He didn't. It was radical extremists trying to bring America down. Now the Republicans are on their side - helping to tear America down. McCain wanted to make it an issue because he needed a Committee job. He suckered right-wing conspirator nuts to help him.
Get over your Benghazi fixation. It's something that happened TO America, not committed BY America.
Did Obama go over and kill bin Laden? You libs say HE killed bin Laden. It happened on his watch. Just like Benghazi. It happened on his watch. Double standard? YES.
