2008 Along comes Barack Obama, he has no scandals involving women outside his marriage, he was against the invasion of Iraq and he IS TRULY AN AFRICAN AMERICAN. His father was from Kenya however his mother is a native born white American. For some in the Republican Party this is more than they can take so they immediately start a whisper campaign declaring he can't legitimately be President because he wasn't born on U.S. Soil. Never mind the fact Hawaii is the 50th state of the Union. They produced phony birth certificates they made on the internet, they keep hounding him year after year for his LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE BECAUSE THE SHORT FORM HE PRODUCED (WHICH WAS DOCUMENTED BY THE STATE) COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE LEGAL. They accuse him of being an Anti-American Radical Muslim. On the night of his inauguration they hold a meeting to discuss ways to block his agenda. There's so much more. No, he does not have an Iraq or a Lewinsky affair. All they have is their hope that Benghazi will give them something to IMPEACH him on as they did Clinton. If the Dems had had as much hate as the Repubs did for Clinton and presently for Obama, George W. Bush and his neocon buddies would be spending their days in a prison cell
I am sure that Obama will have his own version of Iraq or Lewinsky."
Here's the difference between what happened with Clinton and what happened with Bush. When Clinton defeated "poppy Bush" in '92 it didn't take long for the Repubs to send out their attack dogs to scramble around to try and dig up as much dirt as they could on Clinton. They knew he had a reputation for messing around with women behind Hillary's back so they found Paula Jones and did everything they could to get her to come forward with her story. That was the beginning and while this story was making the headlines they launched investigation after investigation into whether or not Vince "whats his name" the White House Attorney had actually committed suicide over a land deal known as White Water that the Clintons had already been cleared of in Arkansas. Then came the REALLY, REALLY BIG INVESTIGATION, A White House intern was having an "affair" with the President. Of course it was not the fact he was having an affair it was instead according to the THREE TIME ADULTERER NEWT GINGRICH the fact he lied about it when asked if it was true. So because he lied about the affair to Congress he was impeached, NO CONVICTION AND NO REMOVAL FROM OFFICE BUT A BLOTCH ON HIS LEGACY JUST THE SAME EVEN THOUGH WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE THE COUNTRY WAS IN FAR BETTER SHAPE ECONOMICALLY THAN IT WAS WHEN HE ENTERED THE WHITE HOUSE
2000 election rolls around and three days before the election, George W. Bush's drinking problem becomes public knowledge, Unlike Clinton he's not elected by an electoral landslide instead he wins the Presidency by 540 popular votes and the electoral votes in Florida delivered to him courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court. He actually lost the National Popular vote by over 500,000 votes. In Aug. 2001 he receives communication while playing cowboy on his ranch that one of the world's worst terrorist (Osama Bin Laden) is determined to attack inside the U.S. but that's pushed aside and nothing is done to stop the attack. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 the attack is carried out in the most horrific manner. Over the next two years the hunt for Bin Laden is put on the back burner because instead of getting Bin Laden, Bush's priority becomes invading Iraq, a country that had jack, zilch, nada to do with 9/11. When Bush leaves office all the reasons he gave for attacking Iraq were found to be nothing more than lies. Over 4500 U.S. soldiers have been killed, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians are dead and thousands of U.S. soldiers have returned home maimed for life. THERE IS NO CALL FROM REPUBLICANS FOR AN INVESTIGATION, THERE ARE NO CHARGES, NO TRIALS, NO CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS BY REPUBLICANS. IN FACT, BUSH AND ALL THE PEOPLE MOST RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DISASTER ARE ALLOWED TO WALK AWAY AS IF NOTHING EVER HAPPENED
Any incident such as this one should not reflect badly on the schools rather the focus should be on the individuals who made those bad decisions. Unfortunately, for students at Howard, Brainerd, Tyner and any other public school just the opposite often happens - Bad decisions by a few often lead others to condemn those schools as a whole
Good ole boy Lindsay Graham has come through once again. It's just amazing it took him this long to start with his accusations. Evidently he thought enough time had passed given it's been over a week now.
"Graham: 'Ultimate blame' for Boston attacks on administration
CNN Congressional Producer Alan Silverleib
Washington (CNN) – Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday the administration is to blame for not preventing last week's terror attack at the Boston Marathon finish line.
This marks the first time the attacks have been so politicized in the search for answers for how the two brothers suspected of the bombings slipped past government anti-terror detection measures.
Graham put it in the same category as the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed. Graham and other lawmakers, mostly Republicans, argue the Benghazi attack was a major security failure on the part of the Obama administration."
At least G.W. Bush didn’t pretend he wasn’t a warmongering corporate lackey and Republicans should be bitch slapped for their obtuse support. Obama does (pretend) and continues/expands a profoundly anti-democratic contempt for openness, due process and international law, to the eternal shame of the far left and his apologists."
I had hoped once President Obama was elected in 2008, having been a Constitutional Law Professor, he would dial back on the broad range of authority and powers that were granted to Bush but he didn't. I hold President Obama as accountable as I did Bush, maybe even more so since I voted for him not once but twice, but it's as if once those powers have been granted no President wants to give them up.
Easy, I so enjoy your responses. Jesse(who thinks because he says both parties are flawed,BUT CONSTANTLY SEEMS TO FIND MORE FLAWS WITH SO-CALLED LIBERALS)has such a high opinion of his own objectivity. LOL Too bad it's more psuedo objectivity than real objectivity
Rep. Bernie Sanders was heard saying, ”Where would be without contemporary Republicans and the good people who vote for them? Alas, would levity vanish?” Immediately Sen. Mitch McConnell mumbled to an aide, ”What the hell does that mean?” “Isn’t a levity a tax?”
In an effort to gain popular support, Lindsey Graham & John McCain appeared on FOX and Friends, and said, “We cannot abide the damage atheist poets are doing to the God-fearing people of America. They are the illegal immigrants [I had to work in today’s topic somewhere] of literature.” Graham went to say, “In light of recent events in Boston, we don’t know for sure whether poets aren’t some Islamic radicals or not. You’d have to ask them. But poets bent on changing the very language our Founding Fathers gave us at this nation’s birth with prose is…un-American.” McCain also added that Congress was seriously considering legislation to replace “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the National Anthem with Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA.” “Now that’s rhyming,” he said"
Thanks for the best laughs I've had in a very long time.
I'm waiting to see baby pictures of the Boston Islamist bombers.....you just know the MSM is going to publish them."
So everytime a heinous act is committed it must be noted the person's religious affiliation? So Eric Rudolph who bombed an abortion clinic should be known as Eric the Christian Bomber?
MSM so disappointed that bomber's name not Billie Joe Montooth. From Boaz, AL."
When you have names like James Holmes; Adam Lanza; Jared Loughner; Timothy McVeigh and James Earl Ray who needs a Billie Joe from Alabama? It's for certain the above named all represent the lunatic fringe just fine.
Enjoying the game from a corporate sky box is very refined especially with a nice bottle of Caymus and sizzling prime rib. As for losers like Alprova, Ibshame, and Librul the closest they will get to a braves game is the remote. Guys, players make the world go round and you my sad lefties are on the sidelines or worst yet in the nerd Democrat marching band. Oh I forgot, after the game I usually take my clients to the Pink Pony for a little VIP room action. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaa! It's great to be DA BOSS!"
I always said that for many, many rightwingers (prior to the actual campaign and during the campaign)that when President Obama won a second term some were going to need to be put in a room with padded walls and a rocking chair for the next four years. Your posts have proved me correct in my assessment of your unwillingness to accept REALITY. You are truly the boss alright-the boss of your own fantasies. Just keep rocking and fantasizing these four years will go by fast and then you can get your padded room ready for the next four when you will have to accept HILLARY'S occupation of the White House with Bubba AGAIN. LOL
