You are so stupid you would never ever go and read books and investigate for yourself why your country went under. Oh no. You make it up some black guy did what Bush did. You can't deal with it that the rich took the U.S. down and that the country collapsed while Bush was in office because you are so dumb that you are dependent on other people to run your life for you, so god forbid the rich white folks turned on you, so you low IQ uneducated morons make it up that some black guy did what Bush actually did to you. You people repeat the TV and live in total fear, and you abuse woman. This country is finished and the dumb ass population is a lot of the reason why. If you can't see Fox keeps trying to sell you a war in Iran and you have no clue there is no more cheap oil and you can't figure out why things happened, that's cause you are lazy and dumb so of course you flip on the TV and let the TV do your thinking for you. You're easy to control. And you Tea Party nuts are the very people who live on European socialism. The whole lot of you are on government Medicare, government Socialist Secuirty, retired on several government pensions and on union pensions and then you dumb asses go on and on about how you hate socialism, how you hate government help and how you hate unions. Yeah, but don't take your stuff from you, cut the other guy out, don't touch your Medicare. You folks are not really considered human cause your IQs are too low.

I just said no one gives one crap about anyone, and you make my case for me, as always. You people talk your stupid Fox crap, repeat the TV for god's sake. None of you read books and none of you know one real thing, you're mean as hell and want everyone dead and then you go on and on and on about 4 people died. yeah right. you post total crap. All you do is show that your IQ is about 90. Mine is 140, so of course another fat, dumb American who wants smart folks to shut up because he is soooooo dumb he can't even understand information given to him, of course.

80 percent of the federal budget goes for Social Security, Medicare and for military spending yet the Tea Party wants no cuts to any of those three things. They want their socialism and they want a big military empire, however, Ann Coulter said that in 5 years from now just Social Security and Medicare will be using up 97 percent of the federal budget, meaning all of the federal budget will be going for socialism, the social programs the "Tea Party" is demanding while they say that they hate socialism. Nothing dumber has ever been hatched.

And, like Mark Steyn said, the U.S. will have to phase out its military spending to meet the demands of SS and of Medicare spending.

So you folks had better decide if you want to end SS and Medicare in order to keep a military empire or if you want to end empire to keep your socialist entitlements, your government checks and your government health care. You can't have both. How many of you has ever even looked at the federal budget to see where the money is going?? That would be none of you.

If Obama would have done this when requested more security 4 AMERICANS WOULD NOT BE DEAD.
If Bush did something when he was told Al Qaeda was going to hijack jets and hit US landmarks, three thousand Americans would be alive.

Bush had a month notice and it was in his daily briefing: we know that he was told.

Show us where Obama was told that he needed more security in Benghazi.

Put aside, for one minute, the FACT that the Republicans in Congress were the ones who cut the funding for state department security.

LIAR BUSH NOR AMERICA HAD NO IDEA 9/11 WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. He did not get calls for HELP as NO ONE KNEW ANY THING ABOUT 9/11. Obama got memos months before the attack and done NOTHING for help in Benghazi, Obama could not stop campaigning and he knew if the people found out he would not get the votes because of his LIES. Your statement about the Republications sounds like the REPUBLICATIONS ARE THE ONLY ONES WORKING IN THE CONGRESS.

OBAMA was asked for security for MONTHS before he murdered 4 Americans. He did not send anyone or anything. As far as 9/11 NO ONE GOT FAIR WARNING like Obama did. The terrorist hit the twin towers when Bush was reading to Children and he was notified then and he came back to D.C. unlike Obama who flew to VEGAS. You can not compare 9/11 with Benghazi. Bush no warning - Obama months of warning and the British and Red Cross left the area because of the threat that Obama ignored.
Bush was warned man times about a possible terrorist attack, in particular by plane. He and Condelizza did nothing about it.

We already knew about the presidential brief from Aug. 6, 2001 that was titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” The White House has shown that this declassified document was primarily a history of Al Qaeda, not a warning of imminent attack.
But there were other briefings, some seen by Eichenwald, that did warn of an imminent attack.
On May 1 the CIA said that a terrorist group in the U.S. was planning an attack.
On June 22 it warned that this attack was "imminent."
On June 29 the brief warned of near-term attacks with "dramatic consequences" including major casualties.
On July 1, the briefing said that the terrorist attack had been delayed but "will occur soon."
On July 24, the president was told again that the attack had been delayed but would occur within months.

Bush told of hijack warning weeks before 9/11
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/apr/09/s...
On August 6, 2001, the President's Daily Briefing, entitled Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US warned that bin Laden was planning to exploit his operatives' access to the U.S. to mount a terrorist strike: FBI information... indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country, consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attack.[6] Rice responded to the claims about the briefing in a statement before the 9/11 Commission stating the brief was "not prompted by any specific threat information" and "did not raise the possibility that terrorists might use airplanes as missiles.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_11_int...
March 2001 – Italian intelligence warns of an al Qaeda plot in the United States involving a massive strike involving aircraft, based on their wiretap of al Qaeda cell in Milan.
July 2001 – Jordanian intelligence told US officials that al-Qaeda was planning an attack on American soil, and Egyptian intelligence warned the CIA that 20 al Qaeda Jihadists were in the United States, and that four of them were receiving flight training.
August 2001 – The Israeli Mossad gives the CIA a list of 19 terrorists living in the US and say that they appear to be planning to carry out an attack in the near future.
August 2001 – The United Kingdom is warned three times of an imminent al Qaeda attack in the United States, the third specifying multiple airplane hijackings. According to the Sunday Herald, the report is passed on to President Bush a short time later.
September 2001 – Egyptian intelligence warns American officials that al Qaeda is in the advanced stages of executing a significant operation against an American target, probably within the US.

There has never in the History of America been a filibuster of a President's choice for a member of his cabinet.
But there has never been the usage of the Filibuster in Congress as have been demonstrated by the Republicans since the seating of President Obama.
In 1987, C. William Verity, President Ronald Reagan's choice for Commerce Secretary, faced a filibuster by conservative Republicans, who said he was too soft on trade relations with the Soviet Union.

As you see, Republicans threaten to filibuster Reagan's choice for his Cabinet, not the Democrats. You're recounting someone's version or you're to young to remember the details.

"......President Bush. Under his leadership, more than 7,077 Americans (military and/or civilian) were killed and 40,030 wounded by foreign terrorists or fighters either on U.S. soil or “in theater” during military operations. These 47,107 casualties don’t include non-hostile deaths of deployed troops (another 1,050), nor do they include the thousands of cases of PTSD and other long-term after-effects of multiple deployments.

So when you hear “at least Bush kept us safe,” keep in mind that you can’t be considered safe… if you’re maimed or dead."
