LMAO, first of numbnuts Iraq itself said they had them and would use them if we invaded. Second even the UN stated that Iraq had them. Also read the stories about the vast number of former Gitmo prisoners end up rejoining the terrorists attacking our troops again.

Obama will not confront his Chinese masters, he knows they can sink the U.S. financially and that would sink his chances of being reelected.

Well listen to him judging China, Mr. Didn't-Pay-My-Taxes-For-4-Year s and then claimed it was just a "little mistake".

Research the ratification of the income tax amendment to the constitution and you'll see they said it was ratified in certain states that they didn't do the proper process for doing so. Income taxes are a joke that started the same year as the federal reserve (coincidence?). Our taxes go to serve our debts due to our incompetent money system. creating money from debt and partial reserve banking is the worst form of usury and is the reason for our economic problems (not 10% of people falling behind on their mortgages).

If we didn't create money from debt our nation would not have become so de-industrialized, we wouldn't owe China trillions, and everything in the US would not be made in china.

Nor would Goerge Bush if he were in office...

Your disdain for Obama is for you to do,
But to cleverly use every issue under the sun to ridicule him, is quite transparent.
