Kerry under fire for 'unbelievably small' comment

Sep 9, 2013 Full story: Politico 149

As President Barack Obama kicks off an all-out push for a strike on Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry came under fire on Monday for saying any attack would be "unbelievably small" and suggesting the Syrian ruler still had a week to give up his chemical weapons to avoid a U.S. assault - a remark Kerry's spokeswoman later attempted to clarify.

You should be grateful that people like me paid enough taxes so that you could enjoy your community's Special Education programs. Hell, without it, you wouldn't be able to push carts in from the parking lot at WalMart for a living!

You are welcome.

Bwahahahahahahaha! I just provided two quotes from George W. Bush to show his failure to do what he said. Stooge.
I would rather support our President and nation than help divide it, as you seem inclined to embrace. Your actions make it easier for our enemies to win.
Re-visiting the past to justify current bad behavior only proves you're part of the problem,not the solution.

A great man just said that.

Nah, stooge, complaining about the present rather than providing solutions is the problem. Whiners never win.

The greatest just wrote that.

Is that another example of do as I say and not as I do?

Campaign promises? Yeah, that's funny. You expect President Obama to be the only one who lives up to all of his promises. LOL!
Remember this one..."Read my lips, no new taxes!"?
<quoted text>
That is another example of paraphrasing rather than seeking the source. Here, let me help you.
"Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office," Obama said. "Now, this will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we've long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay, and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control."
In 2009, the year Obama took office, the annual deficit was $1.4 trillion. The national deficit is the amount the government takes in minus what it spends, by the way.
The deficit decreased in 2010 and 2011. About $1.3 trillion for each year, according to numbers from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. For 2012, the budget is projected to be $1.1 trillion.
Budget projections show a deficit of $901 billion in 2013, even if the President's policies are enacted by Congress, which is unlikely given partisan rancor."
Okay, he didn't cut it in half. He tried. Congress prevented it from happening.
<quoted text>
No, he didn't.
Check the facts. President Obama inherited a huge deficit - compounded by a two theater war and run away spending on both. When he finally got control of it, the deficit has shrunk each year!

By the way, did you forget this nugget of Presidential speech making?
"For too long, politics in Washington has been divided between those who wanted big Government without regard to cost and those who wanted small Government without regard to need. Too often the result has been too few needs met at too high a cost. This budget offers a new approach—a different approach for an era that expects a Federal Government that is both active to promote opportunity and limited to preserve freedom. Our new approach is compassionate. This new approach is also responsible.
It will retire nearly $1 trillion in debt over the next four years. This will be the largest debt reduction ever achieved by any nation at any time. It achieves the maximum amount of debt reduction possible without payment of wasteful premiums. It will reduce the indebtedness of the United States, relative to our national income, to the lowest level since early in the 20th Century and to the lowest level of any of the largest industrial economies." –George W. Bush, February 28, 2001
And what has actually happened over the past eight years?
Instead of retiring nearly a trillion in debt over the first term back when we legitimately had the economic opportunity to do so, the fiscal legacy of the Bush Administration will be that they have left us with a debt that has nearly doubled over two terms, now that economic circumstances leave us with no present option but to keep adding to it.
The facts are Republicant krypotonite.
<quoted text>
You're kidding right? You believe the intel about WMDs in Iraq but want to pretend that the intel given to this administration is not as critical to their thoughts, huh? That kind of duplicity will make it even easier for Democrats to win the White House in 2016.
Ok, I get it, you lied again and won't show your location. Second Bush did it is old news and carries little weight in the world of Obama's increasing failures.

I realize that you waste all of your money on gay porn and meth for the underage boys you prefer. I will be happy to pay for your reading tutor.

Not at all. I merely pointed out that you, like most Republicants, want others to behave better than they do. You hide your location but want me to disclose mine. That kind of duplicity is what keeps your party from winning.
Second Bush did it is old news and carries little weight in the world of Obama's increasing failures.
Sure thing...the guy who collapsed the nation is of little import to you. I get it. Denial is critical to the Republicant mindset.
