He brought down a former President of the United States. He has written over a dozen books on American politics, most of which have topped bestsellers lists. He has been a recipient of nearly every other major American journalism award.
And he said,“This is the Obama era, it is the president’s economy. Speaker Boehner’s an important player and this is significant, but it is Obama’s job to lead and define — so if there negative consequences here, particularly in the economy, it is going to be,‘In the Obama era, things didn’t get fixed.’”

Surely, you're not diminishing Bob Woodward now just because he's not on the Obama cheerleader team?
Woodward is fun to read, been writing on Bush and Obama wars for 11 years.
I have his books.
The choice was between Obama and Romney,
Not whether Obama was perfect.
Peace

wow. you really are looney, son!
Georges Sada, a former Iraqi general, revealed the charges detailed in his new book, "Saddam’s Secrets.”

"Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming," Sada said. "They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”

The former Iraqi general said Special Republican Guard brigades loaded WMDs onto two converted Iraqi Airways planes.

He said he was told of the operation by two pilots that helped transport the materials. Sada says 56 flights were made and were accompanied by a ground convoy of trucks carrying similar materials.

The flights attracted scant international attention because they occurred at the same time that Iraq was sending relief to Syria for a dam collapse.

Sada’s claims echoed those made by Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s top general in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Yaalon told the Sun in December that Saddam had "transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”

You either believe he's telling the truth or you don't.

The choice should have been a no-brainer. Especially after watching that press conference yesterday.

Did you watch the whole thing?

Romney defended his choice of words by saying the phrase "self deportation" means more strictly enforcing immigration laws until illegal immigrants are unable to find work and voluntarily leave the United States.

That doesn't sound so crazy to me.

He needs WMD to sell his book.
the Iraq war is over

Iraq now has a Parliament, not a perfect one. but a Parliament and elections.
Historians may well give G W Bush some credit for that.
BTW GHW Bush is out of the hospital

So when is Obama going to make good on the second part of his "balanced approach"?

He hasn't said anything about spending cuts - the other half of his "balanced approach" - except to say he won't do it and blame Republicans for holding him to it.
Yeah

When I read stuff like this it picks up my spirits to know these clueless folks have infiltrated the Republican party and will sabotage it from within. Not just you Carol but I can't think of one right wing poster on this site that has any clue at all about how their fanatic ranting turns off rational moderate middle America. We need people like waxturd, Eman, martinezjosei, John Galt, maddmaxx7 ... to start writing letters to the editor to insure a Democratic government for years to come.

Romney may have lost when the 47% video was revealed?
Romney lost the last two debates
Ryan lost the VP debate.
McCain chose Palin over Romney in 2008, interesting

GOP needs new leadership, McCain may do for now.
