When the hunt started getting desperate and they were pointing to a van with chemicals in it did I start feeling betrayed.
When they started claiming the weapons were spirited off to other foreign countries but the administration again had no proof did I realize they were creating a second lie to try and cover the first.
Ah well, at least you eventually got it. Some of the morons on here still haven't even though the administration and other GOP leaders of the time have admitted they were wrong.

Republicans are divided temporarily trying to find the best way to save your ass from Obamacare.

You should have read the entire article before posting it and making yourself look foolish again.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist,(R), did not allow the vote.
"If effective regulatory reform legislation...is not enacted this year, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system and the economy as a whole," the senators wrote in a letter that proved prescient.
Only 17 Republicans were targeted. Know why? Sen. Richard Shelby, the committee chairman at the time, underscored the fact it was because Democrats were already on their side, so it was not surprising that Freddie Mac and Freddie Mae went after Republicans. "Unfortunately," he said, "efforts then to derail reform were successful."
In the end, there was not enough Republican support for Hagel's bill to warrant bringing it up for a vote because Democrats also opposed it.

Wasn't Senator Chuck Hagel appointed by Obama as the Secretary of Defense?
Seems weasels stick together.

With the failure of the likes of Ron Paul's strategy of "change from within" I'm dumbfounded how any self-described libertarian can be a member of the Republican Party. They can't all still be fooled by the completely false top planks of the Party Platform.
I would like to think the Republican Party is morphing for the better to include different ideas and diversities but all with the same desire to collectively do what's in the best interest of the country.

Unlike the Democrat Party who has "evolved" into something almost unrecognizable - the godless, communists, socialists and radical progressive secularists - who collectively want to do what's in the best interest of a one-party system to control the masses by destroying capitalism and creating a nanny state.

Funny that Hillary and Bill Clinton and John Kerry and almost every single democrat thought that too in 1998 - 111 still did in 2003.

Funny that the UN thought that too.

Funny that the weasels on your side were the only ones who lied.

What do you not get? The Dems were the minority, the GOP lost their majority to bribery. So, who's fault was it that the GOP didn't have enough votes to pass their own legislation in their own GOP controlled Senate?

SEATTLE (The Borowitz Report)—Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com , told reporters today that his reported purchase of the Washington Post was a “gigantic mix-up,” explaining that he had clicked on the newspaper by mistake.

“I guess I was just kind of browsing through their website and not paying close attention to what I was doing,” he said.“No way did I intend to buy anything.”

Mr. Bezos said he had been oblivious to his online shopping error until earlier today, when he saw an unusual charge for two hundred and fifty million dollars on his American Express statement.

After investigating with the credit-card company, he was informed that he had been charged for the purchase price of the entire Washington Post, which, he said, was “pure craziness.”

“No way in hell would I buy the Washington Post,” he said.“I don’t even read the Washington Post.”
Mr. Bezos said he had been on the phone with the Post’s customer service for the better part of the day trying to unwind his mistaken purchase, but so far “they’ve really been giving me the runaround.”

According to Mr. Bezos,“I keep telling them, I don’t know how it got in my cart. I don’t want it. It’s like they’re making it impossible to return it.”

You "would like to think" and of course they'd prove that a mistake. The recently passed House version of the Farm Bill not only increased subsidies like crop insurance and sugar price supports but the bill made them PERMANENT.

No honest person can look at the GOP platform and do anything but laugh:

"Reining in Out-of-Control Spending, Balancing the Budget, and Ensuring Sound Monetary Policy"

Last time you put them in charge they took us off a balanced budget and into deficit spending. Since taking over the House spending is up something like over $300 billion. Why do you still believe them?
