LOL, this has got to be sarcasm. No investigation of the 9/11 attacks, just praise for bush for hiding out. No media investigation of Gitmo and bush's ordering of torture to death for children. No media discussion of the USSC throwing out the constitution and installing bush by voiding our election. Instead the media piled lie upon lie to try to legitimize bush. The NYTs for example made an "editorial" decision not to report that bush would have lost the election had the ballots actually be counted according to the law. But the NYTs went even further. They took copy straight from the white house, and put it on page one to drum up support for bush's war in Iraq.
When Clinton's daughter turned 14, the media was all over how ugly she was. When bush's daughters were arrested, not a peep from the media. Only a lecture on how politicians children should be off limits.
Perhaps you remember after the 9/11 attack, bush grabbing the bullhorn, literally walking on the dead bodies and laughing at all the people who died. Did the media discuss it? Only enough to say bush was nervous and smirking, not laughing at the dead. But then the media is owned by rich corporations with the desire to keep such criminals in power, to further enrich themselves.
DJ, you must spend hours making up your extremely stupid stories.

Hiding out?????????? RFLMAO

No investigation on 9/11 attacks?? We guess you did read the 9/11 Commission report?? DUH

Torture of children...where?? That's the dumb statement of the year no doubt.

Bush daughters were ticketed for drinking, it was in the news, Bush said they would have to deal with the consequentes..

So the fireman Bush was with standing at WTC's shoulder to shouldere weren't "standing on dead bodies" too??

He wanted to go directly back to DC, secret service said NO!

At about the same time Bush was getting ready for his jog, a van carrying several Middle Eastern men pulled up to the Colony’s guard station. The men said they were a television news crew with a scheduled “poolside” interview with the president. They asked for a certain Secret Service agent by name. The message was relayed to a Secret Service agent inside the resort, who hadn’t heard of the agent mentioned or of plans for an interview. He told the men to contact the president’s public relations office in Washington, DC, and had the van turned away.[Longboat Observer, 9/26/01]

To say you are the biggest lying false story making far left nutball on these posts is an understatment. No wonder America is beginning to hate you people.

You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt.

YOUR WORDS.

NOT mine.

How would anyone think it's O.K. to lie?

In this instance.

To prevent more deaths of people that shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Politicians lie, or are you that brain dead?

YES, it was O.K. for Clinton and Obama to lie but not for ANY teabagger.

I see you did not read the 9/11 commission report. Not even the very beginning where it gives its mission statement. The mission statement says simply it will not report on what happened, only on how to prevent it in the future. Of course it is impossible to report on how to prevent it if you don't know what happened.

So take a longer look and see what recommendations they make. One of the top suggestions is to not order the military to stand down. My my, I guess I wasn't the only one to notice our military stood down that day.

So you didn't bother to find out about the torture bush ordered at Guantanamo bay. That is surprising because the whacked out sicko cons always try to allege that after decades of torture, the prisoners got new information that lead Obama to capture bin laden. That is nonsense of course, but the GOP pushes that line anyway.

So, the US put a bounty on people in Iraq. They gave $25,000 for information leading to the capture of anyone accused of conspiring with the opposition. So a few people, instead of starving to death, took the money to accuse children walking to school. The military took those kids, shipped them to Gitmo, and tortured them to see if they knew anything. Of course they didn't, so the torture was increased till some of them died. You must be so proud; bush sure was.

total and complete liberal bullshit...never proven. No kids were shipped to gitmo..if they were...obama left them there!! LMAO

The bounty was the playing cards with saddam and his henchmen..that's all.

"Kid's walking to school..." Good one!! A lie, but a good one at that. Three grown terroists were waterboarded, that is it. Proven. Led to the whereabouts of bin laden..info used by obama..so he's guilty too???

Not report on what happend??? So your fabricated dumb Bush's fault crap is what happend??

Don't mention clinton letting al queda run wild during his terms, or that Bush was only 7 months in office when it happend.

Keep 'em coming...you're the biggest clown liar amongst the lefites on this forum..right up there with the phoney Marine..

No hiding it from the public, all in the news right away, all the embassies had security, Marines and private, the deaths were those countries civilians in the area.

Nobummer and hillary lied about the attack, claimed it was a video,(false), tried to throw Susan Rice under the bus (she ain't going quietly).

Quite a bit of diffence, pinhead. Think for once, dummy.

How many dead or injured were Americans?

How many embassy Ambassadors infomed the State Department they could not survive an attack?

How many embassy Ambassadors asked for additional security on multiple occasions?

How many of those attacks occurred on an anniversary of 9/11/01?

How many of them did Bush blame on a video?

How many of them had a Deputy Chief of Mission told not to send available military support?

How many of them had a Deputy Chief of Mission told no help would be sent?

These attacks were reported for what they really were. They weren't hiddin behind a false story of a YouTube video. Bush didn't come out and directly lie to the American people about these attacks, nor did he lie about these attacks in a speech at the UN. Obama did!
Even though I didn't like Bill Clinton, the terror attacks during his administration were reported for what they were. They weren't called spontaneous demonstrations, workplace violence, etc.

In any of these examples, did the Ambassador and Embassy personnel call for help, and the Bush Administration tell the military to stand down?

In any of these examples, did the Bush get on TV and blame the attacks on any video? Did he continue to spew that lie for 3 weeks?

The answer is NO.

Someone needs to be held responsible.
