I really want this battle; I want you pathetic right-wingers to be once again humiliated and frustrated exactly as you were when you said:

OBAMACARE wouldn’t get passed and signed into law; IT WAS…
You said the Supreme Court would throw it out as unconstitutional, THEY DIDN’T…
You said that Obama would make us less safe from terrorism; HE SINGLE-HANDEDLY FOUND AND KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN (and without a single successful terrorist attack on American soil)…
And you said that he wouldn’t be re-elected; HE WAS RE-ELECTED, IN A LANDSLIDE, WITH A MANDATE!

You tea-bagging idiots are in so much pain all because the Black guy won again, LOL!

Ex-CIA Official Paul Pillar Faults Use of Data on Iraq
Intelligence 'Misused' to Justify War, He Says
February 10, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/azl6w

The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East until last year has accused the Bush administration of "cherry-picking" intelligence on Iraq to justify a decision it had already reached to go to war, and of ignoring warnings that the country could easily fall into violence and chaos after an invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Paul R Pillar's critique is one of the most severe indictments of White House actions by a former Bush official since Richard C. Clarke, a former National Security Council staff member, went public with his criticism of the administration's handling of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and its failure to deal with the terrorist threat beforehand.

It is also the first time that such a senior intelligence officer has so directly and publicly condemned the administration's handling of intelligence.

1948 Smith-Mundt Act The 1948 Smith-Mundt Act prohibited the domestic dissemination of United States government propaganda. The reasoning behind Smith-Mundt was that Congress wanted to be certain that a United States government agency could not brainwash our own citizens as Hitler had done in Germany.

A Spy Speaks Out
Former Top CIA Official Tyler Drumheller On "Faulty" Intelligence Claims /
http://tinyurl.com/rle4x / April 23, 2006

"The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy."

Tyler Drumheller CIA Ret.

(CBS) When no weapons of mass destruction surfaced in Iraq, President Bush insisted that all those WMD claims before the war were the result of faulty intelligence. But a former top CIA official, Tyler Drumheller — a 26-year veteran of the agency — has decided to do something CIA officials at his level almost never do: Speak out.

He tells correspondent Ed Bradley the real failure was not in the intelligence community but in the White House. He says he saw how the Bush administration, time and again, welcomed intelligence that fit the president's determination to go to war and turned a blind eye to intelligence that did not.

Whatever happened to the guy on facebook who voted several times and bragged about it, not knowing others could see what he was posting? I don't agree with the UN very often, but they have it correct...it is a messed up system.

Obamacare was ramroded against the will of 85% of Americans......November 2010 ring a bell, idiot? It was declared a tax by the SC allowing it to be repealed at any time, patience is a good thing. LMAO

Nobama rode the coattails of Bush's polices which....got osama bin laden. Bush caught the courier, who revealed the doctor and who in turn gave the compound whereabouts. Bush put in all the safeguards that have kept us from attack since 9/11. Clinton did nothing about al queda which led to 9/11.

And large electoral win does not give a mandate you stupid moron. You have been told that by hundreds of people and you still don't get it. Nobama barely won by a little over half the popular vote...NO Mandate, idiot.

The republicans kept the house.......with 7 new Iraqi/Afghanistan veterans in their ranks......NO mandate

A very closely divided senate......No mandate, bozo.

More republican governors than any time in US history..........no mandate.

Nobama must work with us. He needs to surrond himself with people who know SOMETHING about business, not the ideological idiots he has used to drive us towards Greece.

Get a brain, clown.

2004 Electoral college vote:

Bush- 286

Kerry- 252

President Bush proclaimed his election as evidence that Americans embrace his plans to reform Social Security, simplify the tax code, curb lawsuits and fight the war on terror, pledging Thursday to work in a bipartisan manner with "everyone who shares our goals."

Bush staked his claim to a broad mandate and announced his top priorities at a post-election news conference, saying his 3.5 million vote victory had won him political capital that he would spend enacting his conservative agenda.

"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."

As he had done in his victory speech Wednesday, Bush spoke of building a bipartisan consensus and reaching out to the 48 percent of Americans who voted against him. Yet he made plain that he had no intention of moderating his agenda to reach that goal.

"When you win, there is ... a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view," Bush said. "And that's what I intend to tell Congress, that I made it clear what I intend to do as the president; now let's work."

With a margin of 34 votes?

Teabaggers declare a mandate?

2012 Electoral college vote

Obama- 332

Romney- 206

126 vote margin

No mandate by declaration of teabaggers?

Ex-gop was there to listen in on the conversation!! He's everywhere, by golly.

If she is that gullible, then she has no business being Sec. of State!!

"Changing the intelligence document was clearly not done by intelligence personnel -- it was done by political appointees in the executive office of the president, or at the State Department, to cover-up the fact that this was a planned terrorist attack."

No it was done for the very reason the DNI director stated he did it, because the connections to any particular terrorist group were tenuous at best. serious statesmen do not make claims like that without real evidence.

it would be like you posting the crap you do without any evidence. no serious statesman is a stupid as you. no cover-up anywhere, just sane people dealing with facts, not political innuendo.

It's typical of lying Republicans like McCain
(2008's sore loser) to go on beating a dead
horse. Like Eric Holder, Rice has been
exonerated. Trouble is that McCain is too old
and stupid to get it through his thick skull.
His witch hunt is over.

For a guy who was the cause of the 1967 Forrestal
disaster causing the loss of 134 lives he
sure has a lot to say.

What a creep!
