Whatever happened to the Sleazy (all) Democrats outrage about high gas prices? They are virtually all eerily silent now that we have had $4.00 prices for premium fuel (over $3.50 for low octane) for years now.

I remember the outrage on the left when it hit $4.00 for a few days when Bush was president.

One thing clear about Obama is that he lacks management skills and has no control over his management team. In his case, ignorance may be a plausible defense.
You're making your old, ragtag argument again from past years that Obama is nothing more than Bush Light ; right? It stunk then and it still stinks. Try thinking a bit harder next time as I always seem to be telling my political science students and they're smarter than you.

El Rukn is an Arabic term that refers to "foundation." Law enforcement didn't relent despite the name change. Prosecutors tried out new "war on drugs" policies on the El Rukns, and Fort got sent to federal prison yet again in 1983.

That didn't satisfy federal authorities. They got a wiretap put on his prison phone, determined to further disrupt the El Rukns. But agents listened in on coded language that caught them by surprise.

The U.S. government contended that they heard Fort on tape belittle Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan for getting money from Qaddafi. In turn, Fort yearned for some of that Libyan largesse for the El Rukn Nation. Farrakhan had received a $5 million loan from Qaddafi in the early 1980s to start a line of black personal-care products.

The feds set up a sting in which an undercover agent approached a group of El Rukns with the prospect of selling an M-72 Series Light Anti-Tank Weapon.

The men bit the bait and later bought the inert LAW rocket, the same kind used in a Clint Eastwood movie. A different set of El Rukns had visited Libya in 1986 for a conference. However, there's no proof that they met with Qaddafi or his representatives, and there's no proof that the El Rukns had plans to blow up anything on American soil. As one former El Rukn said to Lance and me, "Why would we harm a country we love? I'm an American."

What a joke. It's like the Democrats want high unemployment and for everyone to live in caves like they do mentally.

Meanwhile, you have the Learjet Liberals like Al "Jazeera" Gore flying around and going back to his dump that is a 20 carbon footprint house.

Wonder how Tipper is doing?

You just may be the last defender of Bush; who promised he would wait for the inspectors report. You should see if you can become entombed in his library.
Considering the reign of terror by Saddam's two thug sons, you very well should have been impressed Bush made sure they couldn't cause more suffering.

Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine[citation needed]. Blix said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq, with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world," would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances. "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility," Blix said[citation needed]. "There has to be solid evidence of everything, and if there is not evidence, or you can't find it, I simply say,'Sorry, I don't find any evidence,' and I cannot guarantee or recommend any confidence."[citation needed]

About Bush's "supposed" promise...

In March 2003, after UNMOVIC's efforts to verify Iraq's disarmament, Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine.

He said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world" would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances.

He went on to say, "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility."

George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein an ultimatum to leave power, the UN pulled out all the inspectors from Iraq and, days later, the invasion began.

Saddam had been given his last chance.

Poor Aunt Bettie, taking cheap shots at anyone who dares to disagree with her. Not only are your granny bloomers in a wad, they've been wet since you think you have the President on the road to impeachment. Well time to change your underwear!! Word on the street is Republicans aren't getting much traction with their focus on Benghazi over the last week. Voters trust Hillary Clinton over House Republicans on the issue of Benghazi by a 49% to 39% margin and Clinton's 52% to 44% favorability rating is identical to what it was in late March. You can stop peeing in your bloomers. Aint' happening!!

Just months after being slimed by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, Mitt Romney supporter and businessman Frank VanderSloot was informed that he was going to be audited not only by the Internal Revenue Service, but by the Labor Department as well.
VanderSloot’s saga was told by columnist Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal last July.
In April 2012, VanderSloot, who served as the national co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential finance committee, was one of eight Romney backers to be defamed as ”wealthy individuals with Two months later, the IRS informed VanderSloot he and his wife were going to be audited, Strassel reported. Two weeks after that, VanderSloot was notified by the Labor Department that it was going to “audit workers he employs on his Idaho-based cattle ranch under the federal visa program for temporary agriculture workers,” reported Strassel.
“The H-2A program allows tens of thousands of temporary workers in the U.S.; Mr. VanderSloot employs precisely three,” Strassel wrote.“All are from Mexico and have worked on the VanderSloot ranch—which employs about 20 people—for five years. Two are brothers. Mr. VanderSloot has never been audited for this, though two years ago his workers’ ranch homes were inspected.(The ranch was fined $8,400, mainly for too many ‘flies’ and for ‘grease build-up’ on the stove. God forbid a cattle ranch home has flies.)”
“This letter requests an array of documents to ascertain whether Mr. VanderSloot’s ‘foreign workers are provided the full scope of protections’ under the visa program: information on the hours they’ve worked each day and their rate of pay, an explanation of their deductions, copies of contracts,” she continued.
In her column, Strassel raised the specter that the IRS targeted VanderSloot for his political activism.
You mean the same Frank L Vandersloot, confidante money man for Mitt Romney's campaign ,who's being sued by one of his top executives for a whole host of charges including slander ,defamation of character, and interference in prospective business relations? "Former high-earning “Marketing Executive” for Melaleuca alleges that after being “interrogated” by Melaleuca management and an in-house attorney, she was wrongfully terminated then publicly slandered by the company and VanderSloot

The lawsuit, T. Dorfman, Inc. and Terry Dorfman individually vs. Melaleuca, Inc. and Frank L. VanderSloot individually, was filed two days ago on December 7th in the United States District Court in the District of Utah, Northern Division and seeks a judgment against Melaleuca for “not less than $5.1 million.”

The detailed Dorfman vs. Melaleuca and VanderSloot complaint runs 19 pages " Check this out:

Despite protestations by the White House, the Benghazi scandal is just beginning. And the White House has picked a very bad scapegoat: the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA follows RFK’s edict:“Don’t get mad, get even.” And when the CIA gets even, it isn’t pretty.
With the White House putting all blame on the agency, expect push back this week — nuclear push back. Gen. David H. Petraeus, the former director forced to resign after a sex scandal, is a dangerous man to the Obama administration. Mad and intent on getting even, he’s already talking, telling one reporter the talking points were “useless” and that he preferred not to use them at all. The floodgates will open this week, and by the end of business Friday, the scandal will be full blown.
What you have done here is to make what I consider a very accurate prediction.

The US Benghazi mission and the CIA base were located between two hospitals and a university, if you weren't such a lazy bioch you would already know that.
So if you were the ambassador or one of the three other Americans, you'd be okay telling yourself this knowing you were going to die?

It's you who must not have any recollection of the urgent requests for more security that were denid a month in advance.

At age 41, Jeff Fort is the nightmare of the 1960s that just won't go away. He made his reputation in that tumultuous decade as one of the leaders of the Blackstone Rangers street gang and its successor, the Black P Stone Nation. Hated and harassed by the police, admired and feared by thousands of poor black kids, embraced and funded by well-intentioned idealists trying to end gang violence and attack poverty and racism, he played a role in the lives of some of the biggest names in town: Richard J. Daley and his son, Charles Percy, Jim Thompson, James Montgomery, Jane Byrne, and Jesse Jackson, to name a few."

Fort remains in prison, "the first man in the United States to be convicted of terrorism," for trying to cut a deal with recently-executed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in which his El Rukns would serve as terrorist hitmen:$2.5 million to commit terrorism against the U.S.

"Bill Clinton got head from Lewinsky, he did nothing wrong."

Can you explain this insane stupidity in a sane way?

Lewinsky was given top security clearance to wander the White House because Bubba enjoyed screwing her lips and you say that he did nothing wrong?

Do you realize(probably not) how many politicians have been brought down by sex-kitten spies?

...and this piece of Arkansas used car salesman trash plays with the security of my country from the most powerful office on the face of this planet.

Did nothing wrong?
