I don't blame Bill Clinton for the Monica episodes. Bill wasn't too picky when he selected Hillary. She turned out looking like a man.
I have noticed the same sort of phenomenon happens to men as they age. I've seen guys on tv who look manly in their early years who end up looking like old women in their more recent movie roles. Case in point: Alec Baldwin. At first glance, he looks feminine now, like he could be somebody's grandmother. Strange how people tend to morph and meld, blend; becoming nearly gender neutral as they age. I've heard it said that couples who have been together for many years end up looking like each other.

They should be.

After all, he outspent them into submission!

So my little twit, perhaps they should be thanking the American people instead.

No need to worry. Terrorism is under control. Obama said so. Thanks to him making all the hard decisions to find bin Laden for the past five years and coming off the golf course just in time to see the Seals kill him, we can rest assured.
Really Carol? When did he say that?. The President picked up the search for Bin Laden that the previous administration largely abandoned. And yes it was a hard decision to send troops in to get him rather than a drone strike. As a result we were able to verify that we got him and got documents and flash drives filled with information on Al Qaeda that will prove invaluable in the fight against them.

That sure would be nice. Only problem is the republicans are the only ones on board to reform them.
Sure nitwit, the GOP wants to turn Social Security over to Wall Street and Medicare over to private insurance with their spectacular record of taking care of their subscribers.
Here's an idea! Let's raise or even eliminate the cap on income subject to Social Security tax. That way we can lower the retirement age and make more jobs available to younger folks looking for work.
One of the major drivers of Medicare costs is medications. Let's let Medicare negotiate prices like the VA does and costs will go down.
You'll never hear that from Republicans.

WASHINGTON - The Associated Press

A government watchdog has found that the Internal Revenue Service spent about $50 million to hold at least 220 conferences for employees between 2010 and 2012, a House committee said Sunday.

The conference spending included $4 million for an August 2010 gathering in Anaheim, Calif., for which the agency did not negotiate lower room rates, even though that is standard government practice, according to a statement by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Instead, some of the 2,600 attendees received benefits, including baseball tickets and stays in presidential suites that normally cost $1,500 to $3,500 per night. In addition, 15 outside speakers were paid a total of $135,000 in fees, with one paid $17,000 to talk about "leadership through art," the House committee said.

Only a low-information con would try and give Reagan credit for ending the cold war and bringing down the Berlin Wall. You people really need to stop spinning.
FACT: The Soviet economy had begun to stagnate by 1975 and Gorbachev recognized the fundamental weaknesses in the Soviet system years long before he took over power and years before Reagan was President. It was Gorbachev who reformed the Soviet system. Reagan merely grasped his coattail.
Gorbachev, LOL, isn't he selling real estate in Las Vegas now?

One more time you lie. You are good at that.
Democrats did nothing, they wanted an economic slow down for the simple reason they wanted something to campaign on so they did nothing. Several posters have pointed this out to you but you are to dense to understand. Just for drill point out a single economic thing that is better under president nobama that is better now than when he took office;
- Home values - No they are lower
- Home sales - No they are still depressed
- More folks on food stamps, Yes 6 million more
- Household income up - No it's down
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax - Yes about 6 million fewer

Housing started declining in 2006.

But hey, Moocher Eed, so you are saying its the Democrats fault for not stopping the Republicans from creating the recession.

So what Bush policy could the Democrats change with never having more than 50 Democrat Senators & Cheney with the tie breaker and Bush with his veto.

You rioht whiners really need to get some guts & admit the Republicans screwed the pooch under Bush.

All you do is blame Obama for the effects of the Bush recession. How pathetic can you get.

Yes, Reagan had wisdom , whereas Jimmy Carter was just a Democrat.

The money we spent was an excellent investment and better than continuing the Cold War.

No Boris, the American people didn't do it, Reagan did. Good leadership like Reagan is something even many Democrats appreciated and they voted for him. hat we have today is just Obama/Carter incompetence.

You are a joke, son.

Really, I thought he went to Iraq to get those WMDs. Oh wait, it was to get rid of Sadam. Oh wait, it was to to fight terrorism. Oh wait, it was to spread democracy.

That is a complete lie and irresponsible/dishonest statement. The correct explanation of the concept was to allow people to stay with SS as is or take a "portion" and keep it in funds in the market, which would be a much better return.

This scares DemocRATS because is reduces the money you have control over.

One of the tools you loons use to defend Obama is how good the stock market is doing, yet a loon like you ignores that when trying to defend Democrats stance on SS.

Hey DoofusPont!

Is Sweden doing fine?

Baaaawwwaaahhhhh!!!!!!

You are a liar, and a really big

Around here, every 7-11 and other same type store has a sign on the front door telling people to remove their hoodies when entering the store. Now why I wonder do they do that? We all know why the hoodies are worn by some people.
