<quoted text>none of yo assumptions in this post are factual..just assumptions.
again, why are your dancing on their graves still? what are you attempting to prove other than what a horrid jackass you are?
Four questions:

1. Does the buck stop with the president or not?

2. If the references to Al Qaeda were taken out of the initial CIA reports, who had the power to do that without the president's knowledge?

3. If someone told Susan Rice to perpetrate a lie about a spontaneous mob and a video, who had the power to do that without the president's knowledge?

4. And which is more scary? A president who is behind a major cover up to win an election or a president not knowing anything that goes on within his own administration?

Answer the questions.

I feel your pain. I rooted for Nixon when he first won in my junior year of high school. It wasn't until he delayed ending the war in Vietnam because he wanted to wait until after his second election that I turned on him. Even then, when everyone was going after him during the Watergate scandal, I felt a twinge of anger.
But there comes a point when you have to say your guy was wrong and move on.
That time has come for you. It gets easier when the truth can't be denied any longer. You might have to wait a little longer, but it will come.
hard for suckers to admit that they were wrong....

Your original response was to me commenting on Merrill stating that he ignored their report during a congressional hearing today.

There is a tape and probably a transcript available in a day

What part of "I turned against Nixon when he delayed ending the war for political reasons" didn't you understand?

I didn't vote until 1980. I voted for Reagan and have been a voting conservative ever since.

On the contrary, every time I see that commercial about hungry children in America and an organization to raise money to feed them, I say to myself, "Isn't that what food stamps are for??" And if food stamps AREN'T feeding hungry children, why the heck not? It's why taxpayers gladly pay for the safety net of food stamps...so children won't go hungry.
Especially when rich people can easily get them.
I'd give my neighbors money to buy groceries if I knew their plight. Wouldn't you?
You were complaining about TV ads for welfare like food stamps. " OMg OMG Obama is trying to put people on welfare OMG OMG OMG"

Welfare is to help people. If people are hurting they should know about programs to help them.

That s the purpose of the ads. To make sure those in need get the help that is available.

Galt doesn't have the balls to admit it would be hypocritical to allow only Christians this right so he just ran away.
I don't have a problem with that at all. A problem develops when they begin to poke their fingers in your eye by building a Muslim center near the twin tower location and calling it Cordoba, or when they hold a Million Muslim march on 911.

now your question is not very clear....do you mean "any" public property or "all" public property????......
certainly, anyone is free to speak on the public street.....
again, that depends on what they are saying.

Changes to Medicare Part D Could Cost Taxpayers Billions

Brandon Arnold
March 3, 2014

Since Medicare Part Dís creation in 2003, National Taxpayers Union has expressed concerns about its impact on the federal budget. The program, which instituted a prescription drug benefit for Medicare, cost $55 billion in 2012 Ė a hefty price tag, yet much less than original projections that suggested it would saddle taxpayers with a $123 billion burden.

Itís encouraging (and extremely rare) to see a federal program defy the trend and actually come in well below the cost forecasts. Unfortunately, recent actions by the Obama Administration could take Part D in the wrong direction. In approximately 700 pages of text, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed wholesale changes that could reduce options within the program, increase premiums, cancel or significantly alter millions of existing plans, and force taxpayers to shell out more. In fact, a study by the Milliman actuarial firm concluded that Part D would cost an additional $1.6 billion per year if the rules are adopted.

Dems voted for it at any rate, no republicans have ever voted for Il Douche's spending.

I don't think there would have been many people favoring the Viet Nam war before it ended.

Where is the issue coming from?

They is a word commonly used by persons of low IQ__Flack would be a good example of that.

The self described "bulldog" Gregory Hicks testified that he was communicating via cell phone.

I should add that the ambassadors body was discovered quickly after the attack at the consulate by looters__a good crowd of looters per the photos. How the looters happened to be there has never been explained properly.

The looters alerted the, cough, security guards who transported Chris Stevens body to one of the nearby hospitals where there were attempts to revive the ambassador.

Right wingers__just wing it__or just lie outright.

And the little dog laughed..

Galt sees no difference between that and delivering comments on a public street......
After reading your answer a second time I realized you've never been to college. If you had you would know that the steps of campus buildings (outdoors) is where virtually all of the public discourse takes place. Did you even finish high school?
