Ronald Reagan and the Killing of 241 U.S. Marines in Beirut in 1983. Now why don't you tell all of us just what your hero Ronnie's response was?
The Lebanese cabinet collapsed. Reagan was unwilling to allow US troops to rfemain in a country where they could no longer count on government support. Additionally, Reagan bombed Syrian positions.

Now what did Obama do after Benghazi?

Fix the system before you get rid of it/reduce it. Find the fraud first. Immigrant community in New York sending food stamp funded food back to Caribbean black market.

http://nypost.com/2013/07/28/nyc-welfare-food...

http://www.nbc12.com/story/23509709/food-stam...

These are examples of recent fraud and what they happen to catch. Think about what is not discovered. But fix problems like this before downsizing a program many still need. And PROSECUTE food stamp FRAUD and abuse.

I just thought of something well not sure if it is bad or good? If Hillary Clinton was to become the Next President that would make 2 of the 3 Presidents from Illinois? Hum another 4-8 years of Chicago style politics for the USA.

History will remember President Bush as well as President Obama. Failures in their own ways. But they will also be remembered for a few good things as well. There have only been 2 presidents in my life that I kind of like Reagan and Clinton. I was a child when Reagan was in and I helped with the Clinton Elections.

I know i am all over the board with this but you got to love being US citizen.

A lie is subject to someone’s point of view. There are many trusts and many falsehoods to one subject when it comes to human behavior. Also numbers can lie! The Government can arrange the numbers to fit their needs. Both Parties have moved the numbers around to suite them self.

Keep trying to rewrite history. It's the only thing you you frightwingnuts can do. The truth buries you assholes every time.
Ronnie Raygun never had any response other than to beat feet after the Marines were killed. Terrorists killed the Marines.
Now what was it that Ronnie did again about the 241 that died?

You are right. In 2001,(2000) was the election, and he was sworn in in 2001, and Pelousy was the Speaker of the house that hold the purse strings. That was when the Democrats decided to sabotage the Republicans. It worked if you knew nothing about government.

The Democrats even covered that situation too. The free healthcare is not the same as the Silver, and Gold that most people with money and jobs will be provided. Oh, they didn't tell you about that, did they
