Look, I'm gonna tell you one last time... George Bush Junior got busted for (cocaine) possession in Alabama while he was supposed to be flyin' trainers in Texas. He COULDN'T show up for the meetings, he was LITERALLY picking up trash on the side of the highway in hillbilly heaven... Daddy had the records expunged for obvious reasons.... Now I'd be the LAST one to begrudge a guy a little toot, but President?...

PHILADELPHIA (AP)— People who are repeatedly caught driving under the influence in Pennsylvania are more likely than many other states to remain behind the wheel, a newspaper is reporting.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said Sunday Pennsylvania doesn't mandate ignition interlock devices for first-time DUI cases, and doesn't immediately suspend licenses of defendants who fail sobriety tests.
The paper says a 5-year-old court opinion means drivers must be convicted of DUI before being charged as a repeat offender.
Police can sometimes fail to charge driving suspended along with DUI, a charge that can significantly increase jail time.
The paper says Philadelphia prosecutors and judges are comparatively lenient with repeat offenders.
The Inquirer says somewhere between 2,000 and 6,000 people in Pennsylvania have four or more drunken driving convictions over the past 20 years.
Patricia opposed to Fifth Amendment.....

Patricia would prefer California, where the DMV can suspend a person's drivers license even after they are acquitted in court....

Sieg Heil, Patricia!!!

Between tax cuts for the rich, war profits for Halliburton, or support for our troops - which does the Bush Administration choose, time and time again?
Bush Administration cuts $1.5 billion from military family housing. The Bush Administration cut $1.5 billion for military family housing, despite Department of Defense statistics showing that in 83,000 barracks and 128,860 family housing units across the country are below standard.("Nothing But Lip Service," Army Times, June 30, 2003; "House Appropriations Committee Approves $59.2 Million for Ft. Hood," U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards Press Release, June 17, 2003)
Bush Republicans support millionaires instead of military veterans. Bush allies in Congress stopped efforts to scale back the tax cut for the nation's millionaires by just five percent - a loss of just $4,780 for the year - in order to restore this funding for military family housing.("The Tax Debate Nobody Hears About," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)
Bush Administration underfunded veterans' health care by $2 billion. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget underfunded veterans' health care by nearly $2 billion.("Vets Health Low on Bush's Priority List," The Hill, September 17, 2003; "Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003; U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs, September 2002)
Bush Administration proposal would end health care benefits for 173,000 veterans. More than 173,000 veterans across the country would be cut off from health care because of Bush Administration proposed budget cuts and its plan requiring enrollment fees and higher out-of-pocket costs.("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)
Bush Administration budget cuts force more than 200,000 veterans to wait for health care. Over 200,000 United States veterans have to wait more than six months for a medical visit because of health care shortages.("VA Health Care Funding Alert," Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Press Release, January 31, 2003)
Bush Administration opposed plan to give National Guard and Reserve Members access to health insurance. Despite the war efforts of America's National Guard and Reserve Members, the Bush Administration announced in October 2003 its formal opposition to give the 1.2 million Guard and Reserve members the right to buy health care coverage through the Pentagon's health plan. One out of every five Guard members lacks health insurance.("Bush Opposes Health Plan for National Guard," Gannett News Service, October 23, 2003)
Bush Administration cuts $172 million allotted for educating the children of military personnel. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget cut $172 million of impact aid funding. Impact aid funding assists school districts by making up for lost local tax revenue from tax-exempt property, such as military bases. These education cuts will especially affect school-age children of troops serving in Iraq who reside on military bases.("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)
Bush Administration tax cut denies military families increase in child tax credit. The families of 262,000 children of military personnel do not receive the child tax credit increase because the plan fails to cover taxpaying families with incomes between $10,500 and $26,625. According to The Washington Post, the House version of the Bush Administration plan "wouldn't help many of those serving in Iraq." One solider who will not benefit is Army Specialist Shoshana Johnson, the soldier and single mother who was wounded twice in the same convoy as Jessica Lynch.("Ex-POW's Family Accuses Army of Double Standard on Benefit," Washington Post, October 24, 2003; "The New Senate Child Credit Legislation - What It Does and Does Not Do," Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, June 25, 2003; "Whose Child Is Left Behind," Children's Defense Fund, July 23, 2003)

<quoted text> The only ones lying about Benghazi are the dumbass whiners.
Obama referred to the attack as an act of terror and Mitt Romney was either mistaken or just plain lying.
He absolutely DID NOT refer to Benghazi as an act of terrorism in that speech. Neither did he want the public to know the CIA reports said it was an act of terror. Nor did he want Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton or himself to refer to Benghazi as anything other than a spontaneous mob over a video.

Hope you take a taxi when you leave home. The simple task of driving requires understanding the basic rules of the road and heeding obvious and clear signs. You would be a danger to others.

Dave….If Obama said in the Rose Garden that Benghazi was a Terrorist attack, what would be the need/Propose sending Susan Rice out on the Liberal Media circuit Claiming it was a Video?
CHUCK TODD:¨But the politics, I mean, it looks like election year politics.¨

OBAMA:¨Not only do I want to make sure that the Ts are crossed and the Is are dotted, but here’s the thing, and Chuck, and I'm being honest now, about the politics of it.¨

Must have been one of the countless times he was being dishonest.

Obama has repeatedly said that he will take executive action if Congress does not pass an immigration policy overhaul.
He will face fierce opposition if he does decide to forge his own path—a majority of Americans, including a majority of his own party, say Obama should continue to work with Congress on reforms, according to an Investors Business Daily/TIPP poll.
The poll shows 73 percent of the public say Obama should work with Congress on reforms.
Only 22 percent say he should “sidestep Congress and act on his own using executive orders”—something the president has pledged to do. He promised in June he would enact an executive amnesty if a comprehensive reform is not in place by the end of the summer.
However, he may be backtracking now. Obama is reportedly hesitating to enact an executive order, as doing so may cost his party the Senate.
(Because he can't figure out how to blame republicans.)
Problem is, Obama doesn't like working with Congress or working with anyone for that matter. He's a rogue and aloof president and everyone knows it in his administration and his own party.

Bob Woodward was subtly threatened after publishing his book about this administration - the same book he writes about every administration after being given access to the White House - and going on television shows to say Obama's WH staff say they don't know who's in charge.

Woodward's book about Bush's administration was much more complimentary than Obama's.

Woodward stopped appearing on any television shows right after receiving that subtle threat.
