Bush and the Clintons behave like creeps. Old man Bush had some sense. This new Bush has Little. He's got about as much sense as Hillary. They take jobs from Americans and think we won't notice. Reagan, Carter, Ford or Nixon wouldn't have done this. We've got to have these Bushes and Clintons. What crap!
Please do some research...see who authored NAFTA to begin with. And see who voted for it. In theory it is a good deal, but in practice it screws the American citizen. The super highway is just more of NAFTA being instituted. We continue to pay...as always.

Hmmm! You've got me there. I do remember that BILL CLINTON signed it. I must have misremembered. I guess he's not at all responsible if he didn't sign it.

What a minute ... he did sign it!

Yep, he did sign it. He had the power of veto in his hand and didn't use it. He probably could have been over-ridden if he had of vetoed it. The Clintons are hung up on themselves. It is all about them and how their political theater plays out.
There is nothing wrong with free trade, as long as we include protections for the American worker and consumer. NAFTA was, and still is, a trade scheme to benefit the corporate world. Gone are the days when the corporations considered their workers as an asset. Once we send our manufacturing to foreign countries we become dependant upon them...as they were once dependant upon us.

The Chinese hold billions of dollars of the Iraq war debt.
<quoted text>
China's military has been a threat to the west for a long time if only because of the sheer numbers of its people. Rather than start a shooting war with China, most U.S. leaders have decided to bring China into the family of nations in the hope that democratic demands will arise from people who have a vested interest in protecting what they own. People who have nothing have nothing to lose.
<quoted text>
It doesn't compare to the debt we owe the Chinese since W became president. And the Iraq war was planned back around 1996; 9/11 was just the excuse they needed. GOogle "Think tank war".
<quoted text>
Yes, it would have been really smart to just stop all funding and leave a lot of our troops in the lurch. Bush and his cronies risked destabilizing the middle east to enrich their political contributors like Halliburton. They are disgusting.
<quoted text>
And where's the compassionate conservatism Bush ran on? There are more people living in poverty in the U.S.. The U.S. is despised around the world. Bush and co. have taken a lot of lessons from the old Commies in the USSR. Control the media and sources of information. Govern through fear. Remember the yellow alerts? Ignore the opposition and operate in secrecy.
<quoted text>
Success in Iraq? Short of dropping the big one, that is just another area of the world that could simmer from guerilla warfare for decades. And in the end Iraq will be Iran west, another crazy muslim theocracy.
<quoted text>
The only principles the Repubs run on is winning elections by any means possible. Look at the mess we have as a result of Republican control of both houses.
<quoted text>
It's always easier to create a mess than to clean it up. Maybe they are concerned about how dangerous the middle east will be if we just leave now. Look how long we have been in Korea. Maybe they would like to make the best of a horrible situation and not just write off the billions that have been dumped there.
<quoted text>
ANd your hypocracy shows in that you only want to blame the Dems for not erasing immediately seven years of Republican incompetence.
<quoted text>
Any comparisons that I have seen with Mussolini's Italy were right on the mark like the combining of corporate and governmental interests. And the comparison was made to alert Americans to the dangerous policies the Bushies were involved in.
----------
Typical Leftist...excuses for everything. Even in denial about the fact of any Iraq debt the Chinese hold comes out of the same bonds they buy to finance all of our other debt.

My only remark is: I blame the Republicans for abandoning their conservative roots and acting like Democrats for the last 8 years.

Now, Democrats - starting with FDR & John Maynard Keynes - are the ORIGIN of deficit spending. To quote Keynes "debt is good".

WHY DO YOU BLAME THE REPUBLICANS FOR AMERICA'S ADDICTION TO OVER SPENDING WHEN THE DEMOCRATS DID IT FOR OVER 40 YEARS?

IN FACT, Both Hillary & Obama are BOTH running on promises of MORE big government. How do you think they are going to pay for that socialism you want? They are going to put us MORE in debt to Communist China.

Now, what was that you were saying about MY hypocrisy...???

Absolute bullshit. Leftist are known for crap like defining poverty as someone who gets food from a foodbank...never considering the gold chains, cellphone, cable TV,$50,000 car and other things that suck up the person's money

All absolute bullshit to from the "Blame the opposition for the things you do...before they blame you." page of the commie strategy playbook.

During the 2nd Clinton adminstration, over 90% of the news correspondents in Washington identified themselves as Democrats.

Only a total idiot who has no understanding of political ideology could believe the media is Conservative.

Conservatives have the Washington Times, Fox News & Talk Radio - that's it.

I hope he addresses the Trans Texas Corridor and can give a non-biased acessment of what is planned from Texarkana on Northward. There is a plan to continue on Northward to Duluth, MN. That is a fact. If it is not the "NAFTA Highway" then what should we call it? I think that I will check Ole Lou out tonight.

I guess I talked this up today. NAFTA and the Clintons are no good for the county.
And CAFTA is W's baby.
We wonder why health insurance and Pharmaceuticals make so much money. Ask Hillary Clinton. She met with them behind closed doors.
You're forgetting about the drug bill which was a very big sweetheart deal the Bushies made with Big Pharma that denied Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices the way the VA and other groups do.

Hey Keith did you ever read this? How about a retraction on your MSMBC program? You really have a problem telling your "tiny" audience you've made a major mistade, don't you?
