You idiots on the right are totally warped, no one idolizes Obama dumbo, but we support him he is our president duly elected twice over inferior candidates, and as our president real patriotic Americans may not agree with everything he says or does but we have respect for that position. The president has been wrong about a few things, but do I think he deliberately lied, no I do not.....[ Quoted ] Obama has told so many lies that it would be impractical to list them all. Obama lies every time he opens his mouth.If 1% of the people that voted for Obama voted that way because of a lie,then that is unacceptable. More Obama lies : "Right now, an employer has more of a chance of getting hit by lightning than be prosecuted for hiring an undocumented worker. That has to change." If African-Americans vote their percentage of the population in 2008, "Mississippi is suddenly a Democratic state" Some of Obama's lies do more than just effect elections,some of Obama's lies cause tens of thousands of deaths. " It’s pathological. Saturday morning, President Obama followed up on a message that he had uttered a few months ago: Withdrawing from Iraq wasn’t his idea.
This is what the president responded after being asked:“Mr. President, do you have any second thoughts about pulling all ground troops out of Iraq? And does it give you pause as the U.S.— is it doing the same thing in Afghanistan?”

It‘s rare when the world of politics and the world of entertainment fit together as neatly as they do in our number one story in the COUNTDOWN tonight. A tale of two pairs of girls, all of them in their mid 20‘s, all of them famous, all of them providing rich fodder for the tabloids with their latest exploits. In a moment the phenomenon of Paris Hilton and her new sidekick, Britney Spears.

But first Jenna and Barbara Bush. They have regained their party girl crowns thanks to reports from their 25th birthday celebrations in Argentina this weekend. After reports of lack security, a media frenzy and at least one lurid tale in the Argentine papers about the girls running naked down a hallway of their hotel, denied fervently by that hotel, by the way, ABC News reported the situation was so bad that the U.S. embassy asked the girls to leave, which the embassy fervently denies, by the way.

Glenn Beck made quite a big prediction Tuesday on his radio show.

"Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States," the conservative political commentator said, according to his web site The Blaze.

Beck said he believes Clinton will remind Americans about the 1990s when her husband was president.“And this is what made me say,‘Oh, my gosh, she’s going to win,’” he said.“Pat and I both have said in the past,‘I would so gladly take Bill Clinton right now. Don’t those years seem simple and good [compared to today]?’”

He added: "We already have friends on the left who say,‘Will you guys just shut up about Benghazi?’ They’ve won that. Same with the IRS. All of it. And while we’re talking about technicalities and the past, they’re going to be talking about a past that was brightly remembered, and they will talk about the America we will become. She will win."

How ironic. Obama has been president for six years and you liberals still blame Bush.
Imagine 9/11 happening just eight months into Obama's presidency if Bush had gotten his jollies with an intern and was impeached for lying to a Grand Jury over another sex scandal.
And all of this going on while 9/11 was being plotted.
Once again, yes, we WERE greeted as liberators in Iraq.
That's as stupid as your claims that Bush was responsible for catching Bin Laden.

Bush blew it. He allowed America to be attacked, losing over 3,000 Americans.

None of your stupid attempts can change that fact.

He had been President for 8 months. There were questions about people learning to fly jetliiners, but not takeoff or land them..........who connected the dots in the idiot Bush Administration which ignored all warnings??
----------

The Deafness Before the Storm

""On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief”— the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading:“Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.

On April 10, 2004, the Bush White House declassified that daily brief — and only that daily brief — in response to pressure from the 9/11 Commission, which was investigating the events leading to the attack. Administration officials dismissed the document’s significance, saying that, despite the jaw-dropping headline, it was only an assessment of Al Qaeda’s history, not a warning of the impending attack. While some critics considered that claim absurd, a close reading of the brief showed that the argument had some validity.

That is, unless it was read in conjunction with the daily briefs preceding Aug. 6, the ones the Bush administration would not release. While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed. In other words, the Aug. 6 document, for all of the controversy it provoked, is not nearly as shocking as the briefs that came before it.

The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was flexible.

But some in the administration considered the warning to be just bluster. An intelligence official and a member of the Bush administration both told me in interviews that the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat. Intelligence officials, these sources said, protested that the idea of Bin Laden, an Islamic fundamentalist, conspiring with Mr. Hussein, an Iraqi secularist, was ridiculous, but the neoconservatives’ suspicions were nevertheless carrying the day.

In response, the C.I.A. prepared an analysis that all but pleaded with the White House to accept that the danger from Bin Laden was real.

Once again you prove that you are clueless about the military Frankie. Maybe you should quit pretending loser.

osted: August 19, 1988

Healthy young men who became eligible for the draft in 1969 had a number of options to avoid the risk of being sent to Vietnam.

The richer they were, the better their chances of escaping the war.

Kids with enough money to pay the costs of going to college could get a student deferment. But even that had its limits. Graduation day came.

The more radical burned their draft cards and fled to Canada.

The devout could become conscientious objectors.

There also were ways of fulfilling one's military obligation with a lower risk of going to Vietnam. Some joined the Coast Guard or the Army Reserve.

But the best of all alternatives appeared to many young men to be the National Guard.

Among the thousands who joined the Guard that year was U.S. Sen. Dan

Quayle, Republican George Bush's running mate.

Quayle, then 22, enlisted in the Indiana National Guard on May 16, 1969, days after graduating from DePauw University and losing his student deferment. He received an honorable discharge on May 18, 1975, after serving six years.

At the heart of the controversy swirling around Quayle is whether family connections helped him join the Indiana Guard at the height of the war.

Very few National Guard units were sent to Vietnam. Quayle's was not, although an Indiana National Guard Ranger unit was.

Democrat vice-presidential nominee Lloyd Bentsen, a bomber pilot during World War II, said that his son, Lloyd Bentsen III, also had served in the Guard during the Vietnam era. And Bentsen noted that his son was in the same unit as George W. Bush, the son of GOP presidential nominee George Bush. Both enlisted in 1968.

Pentagon figures show that, of the 3,385,000 men and women who served in

Vietnam, only 7,040 were National Guard members. Of the 58,153 Americans killed in the war, 97 were National Guardsmen.

"There's no question that several hundred thousand young men joined the National Guard so they wouldn't have to go to Vietnam, give up good jobs, or give up going to school," said Francis Greenlief, former executive vice president of the National Guard Association.

Greenlief, a retired Guard major general, said, "The Guard was known as a haven for draft dodgers during the Vietnam years, and we had waiting lists of people who wanted to join."

Weak and fact deprived, only a baggers opinion and as we are all aware that doesn't mean jack shit.
"Obama’s frequent exaggerations and outright distortions raise questions about his judgment and his readiness to lead as commander in chief.” Obama quotes are easy to find on the internet. Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Army and Obama’s mother was an only child. Obama also claimed his parents met at Selma voting rights event that happened when Obama was already three and a half years old and living with Lolo Soetoro, April 12, 2008
Obama claims “I’m the only candidate who doesn’t take money from corporate PACs and lobbyists.”
Truth is that Obama had already received nearly $14 million from lawyers and lobbyists. Why did Obama say that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon? Why did Obama say that the police acted stupidly in Cambridge? What is wrong in Washington DC?

"t was May 27, 1968, at the height of the Vietnam War. Bush was 12 days away from losing his student deferment from the draft at a time when Americans were dying in combat at the rate of 350 a week. The unit Bush wanted to join offered him the chance to fulfill his military commitment at a base in Texas. It was seen as an escape route from Vietnam by many men his age, and usually had a long waiting list.

Bush had scored only 25 percent on a "pilot aptitude" test, the lowest acceptable grade. But his father was then a congressman from Houston, and the commanders of the Texas Guard clearly had an appreciation of politics."

I'm sorry that E-3 was your mental capacity but that's easy to believe being a bagger moron and all. I'm probably whiter than you are you racist pig, My ancestry is Scotch Irish and there isn't a black in there anywhere that I can find. Sorry to disappoint you. I don't begrudge any branch of the service, but back then it was common knowledge that the rich kids ran to the NG because there was little chance of going to Vietnam. I think of the 58, 000 or so that lost their lifes there less than a 100 were NG members. You idiots on the right will malign any and everyone as long as it fits your party's agenda..From Kerry, to Max Cleland and a number of others that served their country with honor. I also helped train a lot of the ARVANS for a period of my time there...Most were trained in Cong hoa and Luc Quan, while attached to the 4th Infantry Division, not that I feel the need to explain anything to the likes of you but I just happen to be proud of my service to my country and also my many accomplishments.
