By the time Petraeus was notified of events in Benghazi, the attack on the consulate was over. Within 28 minutes of being notified, Petraeus was in a meeting with the President. 28 minutes!!!
The attack on the CIA annex didn't occur until some five or six hours later and it lasted for 11 minutes. You people look like fools for trying to make an issue of Obama's whereabouts.

The only way for there to be true diversity is if each race and prominent ethnic group has their own nations, to deny this is to deny space and time.
I know the thought that there should be countries in which immigration doesn't ever disenfranchise the native population scares you, but again, you hate diversity so that is understandable.
You don't even know the definition of diversity, moron.
----------

di·ver·si·ty noun \d&#601;-&#712;v&# 601;r-s&#601;-t&#275;, d&#299;-\

: the quality or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc.

: the state of having people who are different races or who have different cultures in a group or organization

----------

What you ask for is monoculture. All the same. That is the opposite of diversity, and you are the opposite of smart.

Quit wasting our time with your stupidity.

You come here and get kicked around every night. You must be a masochist.

With the bungled launch of HealthCare.gov and the Affordable Care Act causing millions to lose their health-care coverage, Ted Cruz urged the president to use Tuesday’s State of the Union address to apologize to the American people.

“For the State of the Union, one of the things President Obama really ought to do is look in the TV camera and say to the over 5 million Americans all across this country who’ve had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare, to look in the camera and say,‘I’m sorry — I told you if you like your health-insurance plan, you can keep it,’” the Texas senator said on Face the Nation on Sunday.“‘I told you if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and that wasn’t true — I’m sorry.’”

But the president won’t match his words with action, Cruz said.“The pattern we’ve seen over and over again with this president is he says he’s sorry and he expresses outrage but then he doesn’t fix the problem,” he said.

A billionaire Silicon Valley venture capitalist has been condemned for "ghastly and disgraceful" comments after he compared criticism of America's rich to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

Tom Perkins, 66, wrote a letter to the Wall Street Journal, which was published, in which he likened the Occupy movement to Kristallnacht, the infamous pogrom of Nov 9-10, 1938.

In his letter titled "Progressive Kristallnacht Coming?" Mr Perkins said: "Writing from the epicentre of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its 'one per cent', namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one per cent, namely the rich.

"From the Occupy movement to the demonisation of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one per cent."

Mr Perkins cited the antipathy in San Francisco towards luxury "Google buses" that carry technology workers to their well paid jobs, and growing anger over rising house prices caused by wealthy buyers employed by internet companies.

It was bush who championed the invasion of Iraq, not Congress. It was Bush who started the war with Iraq, not Congress.
It was Bush who put Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Bremer in charge. It was those 3 stooges who wouldn't listen to the military and blotched the running of post Saddam Iraq, leading directly to the insurgency. Had the military been left alone to do their job without civilian interference, they would have made use of the Iraqi military to maintain the peace,,
it was Bush's $3 trillion dollar Iraq fiasco that helped double the debt while he was in office.
It was the Bush tax cuts, not Congress', during a war that helped double the national debt
Barry extended the Bush tax cuts, you clearly need to see this:

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place

Dude, seriously do you expect Lois to understand facts and logic???
Trickle down economics has also been proven ineffective in stimulating the economy, yet the GOP still brings it out every time they get in the oval office. It just doesn't make sense. Bush II tax cuts gave the average millionaire a $92,000 tax break. They don't need that tax break for incentive to buy something. If they want something, they will go out and buy it, they already have the money.
But if you give the average American say a $6,000 tax break in the form of a refund, they will probably go out and buy a big ticket item, maybe a new car, make a down payment on a house, or do some major upgrades on their house.
Millions of Americans doing that would definitely stimulate the economy,
Barry's $85 billion a month to Wall Street and fatcat bankers is the new trickle down, however it doesn't get past the already wealthy.
Deny it.

"So what happened to that $85 billion a month —$1 trillion total — that the Fed has pumped into the financial system over the past year?

"It all got bottled up in the banks, and essentially none of it ... got lent out," Blinder says.

Blinder says one part we do understand is that the banks were burned by the financial crisis and are much more cautious about lending. Another factor, he says, is that the banks have some incentive to leave their reserves safely at the Fed, because the central bank pays them interest. It's only a quarter of a percent annually, but Blinder thinks the Fed should stop doing that to encourage banks to lend."

Your viewpoint about race that sits within a very small minority is of no consequence to me because society as a whole doesn't see mine as evil. Mine is now the accepted norm much as I knew it would be when I started working for the NAACP back in the 70s. Society will progress no matter how hard people like you try to convince others that progression is evil. You have no control over it and you will never be given control. You are a walking lost cause.

$6,000 may not buy a car, but how many people do you know go out and pay outright for a new car. Most people put a down payment on a car and take out a loan. When you grow up and move out of mommy's house, you'll find that out. BTW, when are you scheduled to graduate middle school?
There are plenty of places in the U.S. where $6K can be a down payment on a house, especially if one uses a VA loan.
Many people have some money saved up, giving them an extra $6K could give them enough for a down payment
Let's see, Bush was trying to increase home ownership for darkies and now he's the bad guy?

Bush Pushes Minority Homeownership
June 18, 2002|EDWIN CHEN | TIMES STAFF WRITER
Email
Share

ATLANTA — President Bush on Monday promoted his campaign to boost homeownership among minorities, saying he wanted the number of black and Latino homeowners to increase by at least 5.5 million by the end of the decade.

Bush, acknowledging he had set "a big goal," said it was achievable with the help of the private sector.

"When I lay out a goal, I mean it," Bush told several hundred people at Atlanta's St. Paul AME Church, which is located in a once-dilapidated, crime-infested neighborhood where a surge in home building has led to improvements.

Bush also wants Congress to approve $200 million a year in grants that would help low-income families buy their first homes. Most grants would be less than $5,000.

$200 million a year, this was Bush's entire contribution to the demorat authored mortgage disaster.
