San Francisco SO BADLY needs to fall right off into the Pacific Ocean. It would raise the national I.Q. two percentage points and drop the unemployment rate a whole tenth of a point in one fell swoop. I only hope Nancy Peloser is home when it happens.

Sad that you couldn't refute a single claim I made, no matter how many names you call me, huh?
What a ridiculous, arrogant punk you are.
Go get checked for Alzheimer's. If that's ok, it has to be your ability to read and comprehend the written English language. Read this post again, idiot:

Valerie Plame was in charge of the CIA's Joint Taskforce on Iraq, dufus.
The intelligence agency responsible for gathering foreign intelligence is the CIA, dufus.
The CIA's Joint Task Force on Iraq is responsible for all intelligence on Iraq, dufus.
Valerie Plame is personally responsible for all intelligence on Iraq given to the president, dufus.
If you can't understand this, read it again.
Valerie Plame was responsible for all intelligence on Iraq given to Bush.
And, Robert Novak outed her.

Then, how about answering the question you dodged for, what was it, two months?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

so far, nobody's answered that question. Nobody has identified a source of money big enough to pay for Obama's government.
So, how about you identify a source of money we can tax that is big enough to pay for Obama's government.

the only "idiot" here is you, punk.

I've answered the 'Obama's government' question before, more than once, and gotten only abuse and demands for another answer. That shot your credibility entirely with me.

And judging by this new obsession with Plame, I was correct in my assessment of you. Jus to remind you, MY point was that there were no WMD in Iraq...a false claim made by YOU. So what do you do? Go off on a tangent about Plame, demanding "answers" in your usual loud, braying and abusive style to points not under discussion.

Get bent, wackjob. Not playing your game and you know it. Just laughing at you.:)

Bullshit. The only thing even close to an answer from you was "borrow it". You actually have to identify an actual source of money to actually answer the question, idiot.
Now, how about you answer the question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Valerie Plame isn't new. In case you were in a coma, all of this was exposed when the Democrats tried to blame Cheney when Robert Novak outed her. This shouldn't be news to anyone who actually keeps up with events.

The rules of the game are, you have to answer the question. Here's the question again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

All you have to do is identify a source of money sufficient to pay for Obama's government to answer the question.
So far, you seem to have trouble defining a "source of money".

So, tell us where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government so we can actually get past the first statement in the discussion.

Just to remind you...a previous claim by you;

"tha Professor wrote:

Valeri Plame is not at issue here. Saddam did not, at the time of the recent U.S. invasion, have nuclear weapons OR any significant amounts of chem/bio weapons either.
That's an established fact. Stick to those."

So "WHICH" claim are you going to stick with and which one is a lie...?

"no WMD"...OR "any significant amounts of chem/bio weapons"

BTW...even a small amount of chem/bio weapons would be considered a WMD and kill hundreds...thousands...or millions of people.

Actually, they were moved to the Bekaa Valley through Syria.

And, now that everyone has put together the facts that Valerie Plame was responsible for the WMD justification, and that it was Robert Novak that outed her, the Democrats are quick to get her out of any discussion.

Yes Novak outed her in his column.
Novak was not a member of the agency In addition Novak was overt about being told by a member of the administration. Outing an agent of the CIA is a felony and by the strict letter of the law treason.
Quite evidently some one within the CIA and or the Bush administration had committed a crime that was covered for by the administration.

Unfortunately , the nice environmentalist have succeeded in introducing something called summer time blended gasoline.
Now one face value it is not a bad thing because it does reduce smog in places like LA and other cities which lie in a bowl ( surrounded by hills or mountains ) that trap air .
This year as refineries were taken off line for the switch over more then expected refineries had to be taken down for maintenance and at least one refinery was closed so there was a shortage of capacity to refine .
I explain this to Democrats as standing in a forest and needing firewood but lacking an ax.

What you are posting is, of course, nothing new it has been going on for many years and does not account for the fact that the “domestic oil boom is a bust at the pump” it simply confirms what has been known to thinking people all along. Oil is being sold on the world market and domestic oil has no bearing on the price you pay at the pump! What does make a difference is the financial speculators dominating over 70 percent of the market by Wall Street banks, hedge funds and other financial institutions that have no intention to take delivery of the oil they buy and sell on a daily basis. Armed with the 2010 revamp of financial regulation, Obama sought to establish hard limits, but that effort was bogged down with Republican roadblocks – screw the consumer.

So, Robert Novak, knowing that he was in possession of secret information, should have been sent to prison for letting that information out to the general public, right?

That be either a distortion or a lie. You have to be covert to fall under the no outing clause.

Thats not what i was asking.
A member of the administration leaked the name to Novak.
My point of view is that person not Novak was the legitimate target a reporter is allowed to shield sources. A free press demands no less.

Clearly there was a successful coverup of what could have been a considerably sticky problem for W.'s administration.
Where in the ranks of recent scandal would this on rank.
