Leon Panetta did not purposefully leak information. He didn't run to the foreign press & cut some sort of deal.

He should have waited for the books to be published first.

The truth about Bush’s Tax Cuts not the Liberal Myth!!
Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people".
Wow all this good news and yet he still managed to put us 5 trillion deeper in debt, left with almost no job growth after 8 years, 2 never ending/unpaid for wars, a crashed housing market, crashed stock market and a global recession. What else ya got?

Bill Gates and The WHO Team Up To Counter Negative Stigma Attached To Vaccines With Public Surveillance System

June 24, 2013

It should be a very encouraging and a positive sign for anti-vaccine advocates when international funding agencies start to invest in surveillance projects focused on monitoring and detection of public concerns around vaccines...

Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Monday said that his network would “make something up” if there was no other news, a joke in which many critics will find more truth than humor.
Following Monday’s Supreme Court decision to send an affirmative action case back to the lower court, Hemmer noted that the court had not yet handed down rulings in several other major cases.
“It doesn’t look like the voting rights decision or the gay marriage decision comes down today apparently,” the Fox News host explained.
“Well, they have to give us something to talk about the rest of the week,” senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano pointed out.
“We’ll make something up,” Hemmer shrugged.

The CBO is a plug-and-chug operation, using assumptions dictated by Congress. Their output is no better or worse than the assumptions used.

Oh well, it might be a bit late for that. I just don't understand why the rightwingers seem so surprised about spying; it's always been done, by every country. I just don't the general public should be privy to all intelligence operations; there's no need for it.
I also don't get why Bush & Co. brought prisoners to Gitmo rather then causing them to just disappear. Do we trade those 5 Afghanis for the American they're holding?

Bush was as unlucky as his immediate predecessor, Bill Clinton, was lucky. Clinton inherited an economy that was revamped and re-energized in the 1980s that had been growing for seven-straight quarters when he took office in 1993 and he benefited tremendously from the the Internet revolution and left office just months before a recession began and America was hit by the worst terrorist attack in human history.

Then there was the Federal Reserve chairman. While Alan Greenspan played the economy like harp during the Clinton years, "The Maestro" hit a series of bum notes during the Bush years - especially his decision to keep interest rates too low for too long.

Even so, there was 52 straight months of job growth and worker productivity - the most important long-term indicator of the core health and competitiveness of an economy - had risen at a really impressive 2.6 annual rate during the Bush years vs. 2.0 percent for Clinton and 1.6 percent for Reagan.(That fact from the Wall Street Journal.)

The World Economic Forum says the U.S. had the most competitive economy in the world. The economic rebound after the pro-growth 2003 tax cuts was no mirage.

By 2004, the surplus of 2000 had turned into a budget deficit of about 4% of nominal GDP but the bold fiscal response to the 2001 recession hastened the recovery and, by 2007, the deficit had declined to 1% of GDP. There would have been a small surplus in 2007 had it not been for the $200 billion tab for the commitments in the Middle East and the aid to the New Orleans area from Hurricane Katrina.

Bush certainly didn't change America's long-term fiscal situation by fixing Social Security or Medicare, and the drug benefit materially worsened it, but Bush tried solving the Social Security mess but failed. Nor did he push fundamental tax reform such as moving toward a flat or consumption tax.

The real average hourly wage for workers as calculated by the Labor Department was just 1% more than it was at the end of 2000; yet, many economists, including those at the Fed, think the government had been overestimating inflation by nearly a full percentage point and, if true, workers actually saw wages rise by about 10% over the decade without even tweaking the inflation data of combined wages, salaries and benefits.

Bottom line: Bush's successes were destined to be overshadowed by the imploding housing and credit bubbles. They were the economic equivalents of IEDs and they blew up at the end of his second term. The causes? Everything from Fed monetary policy to government housing policy to cultural dysfunction on Wall Street and Main Street. But as teenagers like to say, "Too bad, so sad." Bush was president and Big Media had declared its summary judgment: Failure.
