Full story: WPMT-TV York

Heavy U.S. reliance on private security in Afghanistan has helped to line the pockets of the Taliban because contractors often don't vet local recruits and wind up hiring warlords and thugs, Senate investigators said Thursday.

Warlords and thugs?!

Who knew Obama'd be looking for his successor so soon?

That's probably going to anger uber-progressive Shillary something fierce....since she's entitled, right?

Perhaps the solution is to send the entire National Socialist Party to Afghanistan, where they can learn even more devious, power-mongering, control-the-people techniques from their beloved taliban.

The democRATS -- playing their usual 24/7 politics-first America-last money-thieveing, freedom-thieving, power-mongering, class-warfare games -- have nearly killed it.

Fret not though, they -- like all communists since the dawn of man -- will be skulking back to their manhole-covered homeland in humiliating defeat.

At least they'll feel right at home.

It's interesting that eight years of Bush policy are ignored like Barbara Bush's farts at a Kennebunkport tea party - yet 19 months of Obama have you convinced that the streets were lined with gold in the previous administrations.

My, my, aren't we getting desperate! ROFLMAO!

It's probably time for another MediaMatters strategy meeting tommorow! Lucky you!! LOL!

No one should forget what happened after January 20th, 2007, when the DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.

Under Bush and the GOP the federal deficit was a mere $161 billion in the last budget (FY 2007) before the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress in January 2007. Whereupon they increased it to $460 billion before Bush left office, and then to $1.42 trillion in the most recent fiscal year (FY 2009) under Obama -- an increase of $1.26 trillion or 776%. While the FY 2010 deficit is projected to come in at another $1.5 trillion, along with a TRIPLING of the national debt.

The same GOP who didn't RUIN Americans' futures for generations in the name of some whacked anti-American subversive marxist's disingenuous, anti-capitalism, pro-union, 24/7 politics-first, America-last marxist ideology and hidden agenda for wealth-redistributive social justice, along with TRILLIONS in union payoffs on the backs of American taxpayers.

The real problem with the last administration was Bush's fiscally LIBERAL, unrestrained spending (despite being miniscule compared to Obama and the democrats). Bush -- for all his fiscally LIBERAL policies -- brought us back from the dot-com bust and 9/11. Under Bush we had an all-time record 52 consecutive months of job growth, the DOW was at 14,000, the deficit under $161 billion, and unemployment at 4.2 - 4.5%.....UNTIL the democrats took over the House AND the Senate in January, 2007.

one should forget what happened after January 20th, 2007, when the DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.

After which they quadrupled the national debt, tripled the deficit, doubled unemployment, legislated trillions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions, created record poverty, record forclosures, record-low private sector pay, record-high government pay, undertaken government takeovers of our economy, ruined our healthcare system, and utterly crippled business, confidence, and prosperity in America.

From: http://www.topix.com/forum/us/politics/T50ESI...

Since 2007...

• The National Debt.....has increased from $8.67 trillion to $12.6 trillion—an increase of $3.93 trillion or 45.3%.

• The Debt Limit.....has increased six times. Since the Democrats took over Congress, the debt limit has increased from $8.965 trillion to $14.29 trillion -- an increase of $5.33 trillion or 59.4%.

• The Deficit.....has increased from $161 billion in the last budget before Democrats took control of the Congress (FY 2007) to $1.42 trillion in the most recent fiscal year (FY 2009)-- an increase of $1.26 trillion or 776%. The FY 2010 deficit is projected to come in at another $1.5 trillion.

•$10.5 Trillion Deterioration to Nation’s Budget Outlook.....The same month Democrats took control of Congress (January 2007), CBO, under then CBO Director Peter Orszag, projected an $800 billion surplus over the ten-year period FY 2008-2017. Today, covering the same period—including the actual deficits from FY 2008 and FY 2009—as well as what the President proposes in his budget for fiscal years 2011 through 2017, that $800 billion surplus turns into a $9.7 trillion deficit. This is a $10.5 trillion worsening of the budget outlook in three years of Democrat control of the Congress.

Source: St. Louis Fed/FRED, Hoven's Index for June 30, 2010
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/06/g...

Changes in number of jobs:

• In last six months (Nov. 2009 to May 2010):+873,000

• In Bush's eight years (Jan. 2001 to Jan. 2009):+1,080,000

• In Obama's 17 months:-2,979,000

• When Republicans controlled House and Senate, Jan. 95 to Jan. 2001:+16,107,000

• When Congress/Senate were split, Jan. 01 to Jan. 03:-2,203,000

• When Republicans controlled House and Senate, Jan. 03 to Jan. 07:+6,801,000

• When Democrats controlled House and Senate, Jan. 07 to present (May):-6,497,000

• Since December 2007 (peak):-7,381,000

The marxist subversive-in-chief has already cost us nearly 3 million jobs, and 6.5 million jobs have been lost since the democRATS took control of both houses of congress in January, 2007. And if you take government jobs (and census jobs) out of the equation.....the number of jobs lost by Reich Chancellor Obama and his National Socialist Democratic Party is MUCH, MUCH higher.

BO = EPIC FAIL. Case closed.

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to those propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:

AT THE TIME:
* The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

* The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

* The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

* George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

REMEMBER THE DAY...
* January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!!

THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS!(BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy).

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac????
OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???
OBAMA and the Democratic Congress

So when some one tries to blame Bush...

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving.

Set the record straight on Bush! Place responsibility where it belongs.

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie.
If you want to anger a liberal, tell him the truth.

The closer we get to November 2nd, the wetter, sloppier, and smellier the zombie, liberal, diaper-wearing libs are squiriming in their own filth.

It's a beautiful thing.

Why not allow Haliburton to supply security again? Although
rough around the edges, these mercenaries took care of
business in a brutal part of the world. I am sure that the
President meant well and Haliburton was much maligned by
the liberal wing, but.....
