McCain, Graham, and Corker, that's it.
The new Republican Party is Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Lee, and others not tied to the fossils of the past.
The problem with this is that in 2008 I complained abut Obama's lack of experience,now we are expecting people with little experience to compete for the same job. How can the Republican Party tell the voters that they should have voted for someone with more experience if they can't provide someone?

Veteran Sunrise police employee accused of stealing oxycodone pills from department's "drug room"

Sunrise police property and evidence technician has been accused of stealing hundreds of oxycodone pills and has been linked to the thefts through her DNA, authorities said.

Norma Currlin, 50, has been charged with six counts of theft of controlled substances. She has been employed by the Sunrise Police Department for 22 years, but has served as an evidence technician since July 2006. She was a police dispatcher prior to that.

Lots of people do! I think it may be the blood sugar levels. But then again, she spent hours staring at a photo of Frank Marshall Davis and convinced herself that he is the Presidents father, even though another poster pointed out that he was 60 when the Presidents mother gave birth to the President!!!
Sick in the head, and so disgustingly disrespectful of our President. It's shameful.

Bin Laden used Reagan and was responsible for numerous attacks on the U.S. since the late 80's.
We had no business in Afghanistan back then.
"Bin Laden not only raised millions for Reagans effort"
"Osama Bin Laden was made in the USA by Bill Clinton and you warmongering democrats.."
bit of a contradiction there wouldn't you say?
Clinton finally stopped the genocide after Europe wouldn't. He learned his lesson in Somalia not to rush into civil wars...
Dude seriously read some history from reputable sources...
but I guess stupidity is the culture...after all you wouldn't want to be considered an educated elitist.
Clinton did nothing to stop the genocide in Rwanda.

Don't go just yet. Been waiting to show you this.

Turbulence returned to stocks, bonds and other markets in August, an omen of what a mounting number of investors and analysts expect to be a fitful autumn.

The tumult is likely to continue in the month ahead, investors say, as the Federal Reserve weighs a winding down of its easy-money policies, the U.S. ponders its next move in Syria and officials in Washington wrangle over the federal budget and the debt ceiling.

Remember when you were so sure things were looking up last week?

Will there ever come a point where you acknowledge this president is not doing this country any favors?

Ironic that you would admit Christians and Christian churches give more to the poor than liberal organizations or this administration who keep the poor dependent and in a vicious cycle of poverty.

Al Qaeda emerged from the Muslim Brotherhood, a decades old movement begun in Egypt. Have your read Qtub? BTW, more Americans have died in Afghanistan under Obama than Bush. When Bush killed Al Qaeda the mantra was he was simply creating more under Obama he's eliminating them. Democrats need to learn to stop being hypocrites. Maybe you can explain to us why Clinton ignored his PDB warning that bin Laden was going to hijack planes? Blame Bush ? You have relatively little understanding of the radical Islamist threat.
Notice you mentioned Afghanistan but, left out the young men and women Bush treated like sacrificial lambs. Like I've said, I don't give a shit about bin Laden's upbringing, uprising, or foundation. The facts remain the same, the truth! Bin Laden didn't surface until the Afghan/Russian war as an ally or, aided by the USA. He didn't resurface until Bush 41 fended off Saddam's attempts to overthrow Kuwait, as an enemy of America. What happened in that 10yr span that turned Osama into an enemy of America? Maybe you can tell us why Bush admittedly threw the Intel Clinton left him in the trash or, why after 2 warnings by 2 separate defense departments, the FBI &, CIA BUSH ignored the warnings &, ordered both departments to stand down. Or maybe how a standing governor at the time, can have business ties to a known terrorist. Yes he & bin Laden were business partners. Maybe you can unconnect those dots for us all. To answer your question, Clinton had no reason to go after bin Laden. He hadn't done anything to America yet, just threats. Obama gets thousands of those a day!

Ex-Bush Officials Love Obama’s Unilateralism on Syria
The president is signaling he’s willing to go it alone, and that’s won him some new admirers: the Bush officials who went to war with Iraq absent a second U.N. resolution.
Many former officials from the George W. Bush administration have discovered new respect for Obama’s recent embrace of American unilateralism after the suspected chemical-weapons attack last week in a suburb of Damascus.
“I absolutely congratulate President Obama for finally realizing that our U.N. allies are nothing more than a bunch of dithering, yellow-bellied, Chardonnay-sipping cowards,” said Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for the Justice Department in Bush’s first term.“I further congratulate him for finally growing up and understanding that there are bad people in the world and sometimes they earn, by their evil, the action of a great superpower. So yippee-kai-ay, cowboy.”
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08...
come on you folks who voted for Bush, get with the program!!
or you turncoats can just keep attesting to the fact that the Iraq war was an illegal debacle.
As a self admitted liberal hypocrite, I agree with this opinion:

I see the Obama "reset" is going so swimmingly that the president is now threatening to go to war against a dictator who gassed his own people. Don't worry, this isn't anything like the dictator who gassed his own people that the discredited warmonger Bush spent 2002 and early 2003 staggering ever more punchily around the country inveighing against.

The 2003 dictator who gassed his own people was the leader of the Baath Party of Iraq.

The 2013 dictator who gassed his own people is the leader of the Baath Party of Syria. Whole other ball of wax. T

The Obama administration's ingenious plan is to lose this war in far less time than we usually take.

In the unimprovable formulation of an unnamed official speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the White House is carefully calibrating a military action "just muscular enough not to get mocked."

That would make a great caption for a Vanity Fair photo shoot of Obama gamboling in the surf at Martha's Vineyard, but as a military strategy it's not exactly Alexander the Great or the Duke of Wellington.

And it's trickier than it sounds: I'm sure Miley's choreographer assured her she was "just muscular enough not to get mocked," and one wouldn't want to see the United States reduced to twerking arrhythmically to no avail in front of an unimpressed Bashar Assad's Robin Thicke.

Okay, okay, that metaphor's as thinly stretched as Miley's talent, so what does unmockable musculature boil down to? From the New York Times: "A wide range of officials characterize the action under consideration as 'limited,' perhaps lasting no more than a day or two."

Somebody get me Sean Penn on the phone! Or that Clooney fellow who makes all the anti-American movies! And where's that Cindy Sheehan person? Michael Moore, you out there? Hello, Hello??? Bueller? Bueller? Anbody home in Hollywood?

We made fun of Bush for giving up golf when we went to war, but never had to do that about Obama the Cool President, did we? And that fool Bush, we made fun of him because he kept reading to the children when his aides advised him of the Sept 11 attacks. Not cool like Obama who never stopped campaigning or playing Spades while the grownups tried to do the work of President until his was time to take his picture. Or maintained his coolness the night an American Ambassador was raped, dragged through the streets and tortured until dead. Our way cool President got his beauty sleep and jetted off to campaign in Vegas. He's definitely no George W. Bush.

In proportion to their income both the Obama's and the Bidens were notoriously cheap until election time. It's only other people's money that they are generous with.
