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.
Trying to force inspections by regulators is a far cry from invading the country.

The reasons to force inspections are much lower that the reasons to invade a country, spend over a trillion dollars& kill 4000 soldiers.

I might think my neighbor's dog is dangerous. The reasons for it are enough to stay away from it, It doesn't mean they are enough to shoot it.

The Congressmen & Senators were trying to force inspections. Their talk about Sadam was aimed for the UN & inspectors.

Bush's talk was aimed at the American people with the sole objective of war.

Funny how that's complete BS, remember the UN rejected Bush's proposed action.

Funny how the only lie was that there were no WMD in 2003 or 2004 or 2005 ...

Congress has closed for a five-week vacation, leaving the rest of us to figure out what happened http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/closere...
I have been observing what I refer to the “Growing Chasm” within the republican ranks. Here is one example of many that I have been collecting.
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!

Wow, when you get stupid about a thing ...

The GOP held the majority in the Senate. That means they didn't need ANY D votes to pass their own legislation. They couldn't get enough R votes because 17 R Senators had been bribed into opposing the bill. The Senate Majority Leader Frist-R wouldn't even bring the bill up for a vote despite the pleadings of the bill's R supporters.

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.
Chuck Hagel is republican like Rand Paul is--it's a shame about how low the GOP has fallen to attack each other --Next you'll hear one of them call another a 'vulture capitalist'--wait! that happened all ready . Thanks Newt!

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.
Which tent would you rather be under?
Nevermind. I already know.
Seems clear one party is trying to hijack another party because the hijackers don't have what they want.... support and money.

Don't know what that makes you then.

That article clearly stated F&F targeted 17 Republicans to try and get more Republicans on their side because ALL Democrats already were.

Republicans refused to sign the bill and so it didn't work.

What don't you understand about this?

As usual, the internet and you fail when it comes to complex, nuanced history. You try to distill everything into convenient partisan divides and nothing as complex as Reconstruction can fit into such neat little boxes. Sherman never had the authority to offer anyone 40 acres and a mule, think of how that sounds outside of that particular context, the way you frame it: The Republican Party confiscates hundreds of thousands of acres of land from wealthy land owners and gives it to the poor. How does that set with your perception of the Party?
Nevertheless, 40 acres was limited to a very small coastal area and had little or nothing to do with the emergence of sharecropping. Its simple economics: freed slaves had no work and plantation owners had no one to work their land. Regardless of whether land reform on the Atlantic coast had succeeded, sharecropping would have spread throughout the rest of the South to level this economic imbalance.

Oh, did I mention the poverty level has increased, unemployment among minorities is in the two digits, job growth is moving like a snail and 90% of jobs added recently are part-time because of Obamacare?
Before the Democrats said everything was just fine with bad mortgage loans up until the very end, unemployment averaged in the 5% range during Bush's entire two terms.
Trying to blame the increase in part time employment on "Obamacare" is a Republican witch hunt.

Here's a snippet from a December, the U.S. Department of Labor Report:

Another important indicator of labor market dif&#64257; culty, the
number of persons working part time for economic reasons, has
suggested a softening in the demand for labor since about mid-
2006. Sometimes referred to as involuntary part time workers and viewed as underemployed, these individuals wanted full-time jobs but worked less than 35 hours during the survey reference week primarily due to slack work (a reduction in hours in response to unfavorable business conditions) or the inability to &#64257;nd full-time work.

In November 2008, 7.3 million persons were employed part time for economic reasons, up by 3.4 million from a recent low of 3.9 million
in April 2006." That's right, under Bush, the number of unemployed doubled in just the last two years of his presidency. That is the legacy he left for Obama.

You people really need to stop pointing a finger at Obama because there are four fingers pointing right back at you. Funny how you people always expect Obama to reverse the negative trends which began under your beloved Bushy Boy.

HEY STUPID! When you raise the minimum wage then people have more money in their pockets which they spend and buy stuff which in turn stimulates the economy.
Community colleges are one of our greatest resources. They used to be just stepping stones to a four year college but now they offer courses like precision machining, CAD, electrical engineering, computer systems engineering, nuclear medicine, medical imaging and many more needed skills.
You're the idiot!
Go find a Community College that teaches critical thinking.
