<quoted text>Let's talk about the latest so called terrorist, Abu Khattala, hiding in plain sight for 20 months, and his capture. This is how you silence a dangerous witness for years. This is how you keep him from ever disclosing the secrets that can bring you down. You bring him to America and give him a team of lawyers. You can bet O'bama’s top enforcer, Attorney General Eric Holder, will make sure Abu Khattala has an O.J. Simpson-like “dream team.” Game, set, match. The terrorist provides cover for O'bama. His capture makes O'bama look good in O'bama mind. But he’s guaranteed to never talk.
As a political analyst noted the other day, Obama is from the corrupt Chicago political train of thought which is...if I do something nice for you, you are obligated to do something nice for me in return.

He's carried that train of thought to the White House dealing with terrorists thinking it still applies to dealing with other corrupt politicians.

Thought that was an insightful observation.

Your idiots claimed that Al Qaeda was in Iraq knowingly lying to create more fear for their lie induced war. There was no Al Qaeda in Iraq then, but they are now..Thanks Bush. Afghanistan was the only place your idiots should have concentrated on, that's where our enemies were and we knew that to be true, so Bush abandoned our real enemies and went for Haliburton plain and simple. Now we have a mess...Everything your party touched you screwed it up,,,EVERYTHING. Even the minds of idiots like you. You have hundreds of thousands of lives on your lying hands. And you forever will, no matter your many lies to the contrary. Your party screwed the pooch. Deal with it. Crybaby.
I see you are OFF chasing squirrels again.

Income tax is based on INCOME. Only a moron would expect someone that doesn't have an income to pay an income tax. And reread the post, the claim was "Only 49% of the people pay tax", that is false, dumb, ignorant, lie, stupid and bizarre.
If there was a tax on intelligence you wouldn't have to pay that either.

Admitting Error on Iraq Is the Beginning of Foreign Policy Reform

Michael Brendan Dougherty appeals to Republicans to admit their errors on Iraq:

Republican lawmakers should stand up now because it is also a necessary course correction for their entire party. Democrats survived the Cold War and the charge of “losing China” by over-compensating in their militarism and their anti-communism. Even then, the foreign policy electoral advantage of Republicans was massive for four decades. But the polarity of American foreign policy politics may have reversed.

....Dougherty is right to urge Republicans to make this admission, and I agree that it is necessary if the GOP is to have any chance of regaining the public’s trust on foreign policy. However, admitting that the war was a “mistake” without making significant changes to the way that one thinks about the relevant issues won’t be enough. The real test for “peace-making” Republicans in office won’t be whether they can be made to acknowledge something about a disastrous war that at least two-thirds of the country already knows, but whether they can avoid making similarly terrible foreign policy judgments when the next debate over the use of force takes place. That will require seriously altering the way that most Republicans have thought about these issues since the end of the Cold War, and that won’t take place until at least some of them take the lead in acknowledging their past errors.

If you think for one minute our community organizing political activist president would have had the initiative to go after bin Laden after 9/11, you're crazy and/or delusional.
Obama did what any sitting president would have done when they found him after nearly a decade. Obama was still a corrupt Chicago politician when it began and worried more about ObamaCare and his legacy right up until they found him.
It doesn't take a whole lot of courage to say "yes" when asked "can we kill him now?" Especially when you have a deck of cards and someone who will play with you because watching it unfold is "too intense".
Yeah, PDupont, that takes a lot of guts.
You're a GD liar. President Obama got Osama. Period. It was his initiative and his accomplishment; while your Bush said "I don't really think about Osama" HAAAA!
The Bush family has been in bed with the Bin Ladens for years; never bothered you did it?
Bush allowed the Saudis to round up and leave the country after 9/11!!
Talk about corruption? I think you're truly insane.

Bush called Bin Laden irrelevant. Obama ran on getting Bin Laden & Did. Amnd yuou ewhiners just can't stand it.
Bad choice of words.

But Bush had repeatedly said he wanted Osama bin Laden "dead or alive."

When asked to elaborate on what he meant about not being too concerned about him, Bush said: "Well, as I say, we haven't heard much from him. And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don't know where he is. I -- I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."

Bush was right. He still wanted him dead or alive but to put just one face on terror after 9/11 would have been a big mistake.

Republicans never admit their mistakes, the president admits a mistake and they immediately call him a liar.
