Hillary Clinton voted for the invasion too, Biden voted to invade Afghanistan.

We're still in Afghanistan and more Americans have died there since Obama took office than in all of Bush's two terms.

Then why did Senator Kerry and Senator Clinton vote to go into Iraq? Biden voted for the use of force in Afghanistan and under his administration more Americans have been lost there than all of Bush's two terms.

I just love how you ringers play with stats, the reason Bush might have had fewer casualties was because no-one was there, they were all in Iraq. Another monumental mistake the Bush administration made, cleaning up the Taliban and then pulling out letting them regroup.

In the meantime 1000's more die in Iraq just so they could celebrate with a car bomb at the markets every other week. Democracy does wonders in the middle east.

Obama left Iraq too soon; blame him for the weekly bombings. Clinton and Kerry voted for the Iraq war; don't blame Bush for their votes.

Well who would you put up Ann Coulter ?? A female version of Rush & Beck where the most inspiring thing she could say is what she had for lunch. The rest of the time is taken up telling us what's wrong with the government. HTF could anyone be inspired by that, a totally empty vessel lacking purpose and ideas. Much like the tea party.
Her latest light bulb moment was to tweet a mock of Michelle Obama who added herself to the campaign of bringing back the kidnapped girls in Nigeria. Coulter posted with a sign "bring back our country". I mean that says it all, class that is lower than a snakes belly.
What, you can't answer your own question. What a loon and marooooooon you are. Back to the polo grounds with your shovel ready job.

The White House is refusing to confirm whether President Barack Obama followed up on his pledge to take a 5 percent pay cut due to sequestration last year.

Obama promised last April to take a 5 percent pay cut in "solidarity" with federal employees who were furloughed as a result of the automatic budget cuts, known as the sequester. The cut was meant to equate to the level of spending cuts imposed on nondefense federal agencies.

What a joke, if you google this, the only hits you get are right wing blogs. No genuine news outlets and like most of the tea party people, here is a old man who became senile and went to the dark side. Making NON factual statements that have zero credibility that are trademark tea bagging behaviour.

Oh I'm sorry this so called story gets a run on Fox News & Rush Limbaugh's site. They would be considered credible news sites wouldn't they ?

sorry, son, consensus has nothing to do with scientific methodology....in fact it's the opposite. especially on late night comedy....and when the pseudoscience hasn't even been tested.

You could do yourself no harm to watch the video link below which is an interview with one of the global crisis scientists who contributes to the IPCC reports dispelling all the myths the flat earther's put up. Including all the favourites like temps flat lining for the past 17 years, what the tipping point means and exactly why we need to reduce our emissions dramatically.
He even gives your favourite person Big Al a rap for his efforts in selling the message.

The first 15 mins is just a bit of a personal bio then he talks about climate & it's impact on our environment right down to the krill population.
