    These liars are amazing in their bold Hypocrisy,

    She spoke of AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM which from her and Bush's example are nothing better than veiled military adventurism, especially where there's oil.

    Did anyone else hear this speech ?

    She's just blowing smoke to the neo-con crowd.

    I think she secretly agrees with Obama on lots of things. I mean, she voted for him, after all.

    She voted for who? Better check that at again. You're getting her mixed up with Colin Powell.

    In an interview just after the 2008 Election, she got all teary-eyed, saying that the election of a black President is "historical."

    Nobody opposed to Obama would get THAT emotional, even if they feel such an election is a historic trend shift.

    I think if you'll do some fact checking American standing in the world became endangered when the Bushies and Rice went forward with a totally failed war with Iraq over lies, THE WORLD KNOWS ABOUT US LIES TO FORWARD ITS CONTROL OF OIL, that military advernturism is the problem, we will only claw back our standing by backing off interventionist military adventures.



    I see you apparently get at least some of your news rom FOX unfair and anything but balanced. Do you read or watch other media news ?

    Rice is guilty of gross incompetence.
    She absolutely did NOT do enough to try to prevent 9-11.

    The idea that she should be revered by some idiots is just unbelievable.

    She was/is a terrible speaker. I enjoyed how she was talking about how schools are failing. I'm sorry Ms. Rice but No Child Left Behind is the biggest reason why and it was implemented by the administration you were a part of.

    I expected more.

    No one is disputing "teary eyed", but that doesn't confirm that she voted for Obama.in 2008 and you said "I mean, she voted for him, after all."

    RickRick91 saidRice is guilty of gross incompetence.

    The idea that she should be revered by some idiots is just unbelievable.


    911 was plotted and planned under the the Clinton admin.icon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gif Do you think they came up with all that in the short time while Bush was president. They were illegals in our country learning to fly in our schools all during Clinton's time in office. He was too busy with his celebrity and involved with the Monica scandal and the Blewinsky he got while ducking the media and Hillary, instead of reading all the intell he had on desk prior to 911. Read and learn the facts.

    Her speech might have upset some, but the truth hurts.icon_idea.gif She went back to our constitution and why our country was great. Our country is the land of opportunity for those who work hard. Not a land of freebies and healthcare to all who don't. She never mentioned Obama's name once in her speech, but she made it clear why we are in so much more trouble since he came to office. She stated so many facts about what is wrong with our country AND what we need to do to fix it. The Rep from Mexico was great as well. She took her state from being so far in debt to a solid place without raising taxes. She and Ryan spoke of Obama;s promises before his election and how they failed. He asked American's to vote for him and said he would turn the economy around. He failed and added more debt to this country than any other president.
    Welfare was meant to be a hand up not a way of life in this country. Too many receive it and do absolutely nothing with their lives, but they all have the best TV's and cell phones money can buy. Many never worked and never plan to do so-sad fact. We live in a free society-they do not deserve the exact same healthcare and benefits as those who worked hard and sacrificed so much for their families as mine did. We are not a socialist country. My parents are of Italian American decent. I am only the second generation here. They entered the country legally as children and had NO hand out or benefits or anything bilingual to aid them, yet my Dad worked so hard to raise 5 boys, all went onto college. My one grandfather was a longshoreman the other a laborer who taught music as well. My dad knew how to speak the language, but my mom did not. They went to Catholic School and the nuns just sat her next to another student and she had to work extremely hard at it. They both have no discernible accent today. They still hold onto family traditions, but they can speak Italian. They knew America is a melting pot and to succeed you must assimilate. When my parents rented they improved the building they lived in and took pride in a job well done. They worked long, hard hours with a strong work ethic they instilled in all of us. Today youth has even more opportunity. In many states the less fortunate can still go to school with free tuition, books dormitory if they work hard and maintain a B average. When I went to school we did not qualify for financial aid. We worked hard for little money given in academic scholarships and some athletic scholarships. We were not given the same advantages that many received for free when I went to school. We didn't sit home and complain about it. We all worked 25-30 hours during school and full time in summers. It helped having work experience on our resume's. Many young people today graduate and expect a job paying 100K without ever having worked a job?? Before I was born my dad worked full time and went to college at night to receive his degree in architecture. It was much harder for him then it is now. I miss him every day of my life.

    I believe Condi would make a great president. I wish she was the Repub's choice for VP!
    Ryan started slow but ended stronger, pointing out why our country needs medicare, money for those who can no longer work -money for those who are not old, or disabled- NOT younger healthy, lazy Americans who all want something for nothing. ( What will become of all the autistic, classified and learning disabled Americans we have now?? We will need medicare more than ever.) A president can't keep taking money from funds set aside for crisis and then fail in not returning them!! Obama's stimulus package took borrowed money put us further in debt and did nothing for the economy-it was an epic fail. He will go down in history as one of the worst presidents next to Jimmy Carter.icon_idea.gif If Obama continues to make it harder for the Americans who have the money who create jobs in this country we all lose!

    Before commenting make sure you actually listened to her speech-if not don't bother.

    Obama doesn't give a shit about social security and medicare for the old and gay men are a lot lower on the food chain than the elderly. If you think Obama gives a rat's ass anymore than any other president about gay men you are mistaken!! He is sweating bullets and will say anything now for a vote. Dick Chenny had more respect because his daughter is gay. Wake up MEN.

    false statements??? The facts were on Clinton's watch. He didn't do jack about it! Here on the east coast the blood of 911 victims is on Clinton's hands- not Bush/Rice. Bush was a former military do you really think he ignored intel on this?? You're mad. By the time he was president it was underway. Dontcha think they would have stopped at least one plane?? Bin Laden has been a name of interest for a long time as well as a few hundred other men. I live in NYC and NJ. Speak to someone who was in military intell b4 you type here.

    I carefully read the post you quoted as well as your post. I saw in his posts a general message that there should not be hand-outs to people who can work. I did not see anything that suggested there should not be a safety-net for those who truly need help.

    I cannot see any justification for your comment that he is an elitist bastard or that he is despicable. Because you are a senior in college, would it be too much to ask if you can provide an intellectual, logical basis for your position, because I think it is BS and would be willing to be proven wrong.


    Why the fuck

    Would I care

    What you think?

    I don't know you, I don't wanna know you, you could die and my day would go on.

    Your opinion, your thoughts, your existence, matters not.

    So now, why would I waste my time arguing with someone who isn't even an afterthought in my pre-frontal cortex?

    Why did I even spend time acknowledging your existence with a response?

    I'm pretty sure the 9/11 Report clearly stated that Clinton refused to execute a plan to take out Bin Laden when we had satellite evidence of his presence at an Al Qaeda training camp because Clinton thought that "innocents" might become collateral damage in a drone missile strike proposed by the military commanders. Too bad he didn't have the presence of thought that killing a dozen or so women and children living in a terrorist training camp would pale in comparison to the thousands of truly innocent Americans killed at the WTC. But he was probably getting blown by that fugly Lewinsky chick at the time, so he wasn't thinking with his right head.

    That was a different more cautious time under Clinton regarding killing innoscents, We've lost a lot of ground over Bush's war and Obama's drones killing innoscent poeple, so you cannot place the blame on Clinton


    Clinton passed on warnings and Condi as well as Bush's team ignored them.

    New CIA Docs Show Bush Ignored Seven Different Warnings About Imminent Attacks

    Seven different times, Bush was informed of imminent strikes by Bin Laden, and he simply ignored them? I guess they were so determined to go to war, they wanted any excuse they could get:


    Over 120 CIA documents concerning 9/11, Osama bin Laden and counterterrorism were published today for the first time, having been newly declassified and released to the National Security Archive. The documents were released after the NSA pored through the footnotes of the 9/11 Commission and sent Freedom of Information Act requests.

    The material contains much new information about the hunt before and after 9/11 for bin Laden, the development of the drone campaign in AfPak, and al-Qaida’s relationship with America’s ally, Pakistan. Perhaps most damning are the documents showing that the CIA had bin Laden in its cross hairs a full year before 9/11 — but didn’t get the funding from the Bush administration White House to take him out or even continue monitoring him. The CIA materials directly contradict the many claims of Bush officials that it was aggressively pursuing al-Qaida prior to 9/11, and that nobody could have predicted the attacks. “I don’t think the Bush administration would want to see these released, because they paint a picture of the CIA knowing something would happen before 9/11, but they didn’t get the institutional support they needed,” says Barbara Elias-Sanborn, the NSA fellow who edited the materials.

    [...] Many of the documents publicize for the first time what was first made clear in the 9/11 Commission: The White House received a truly remarkable amount of warnings that al-Qaida was trying to attack the United States. From June to September 2011, a full seven CIA Senior Intelligence Briefs detailed that attacks were imminent, an incredible amount of information from one intelligence agency. One from June called “Bin-Ladin and Associates Making Near-Term Threats” writes that “(redacted) expects Usama Bin Laden to launch multiple attacks over the coming days.” The famous August brief called “Bin Ladin Determined to Strike the US” is included. “Al-Qai’da members, including some US citizens, have resided in or travelled to the US for years, and the group apparently maintains a support structure here,” it says. During the entire month of August, President Bush was on vacation at his ranch in Texas — which tied with one of Richard Nixon’s as the longest vacation ever taken by a president. CIA Director George Tenet has said he didn’t speak to Bush once that month, describing the president as being “on leave.” Bush did not hold a Principals’ meeting on terrorism until September 4, 2001, having downgraded the meetings to a deputies’ meeting, which then-counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke has repeatedly said slowed down anti-Bin Laden efforts “enormously, by months.”

    Hold on there a second me Bucko......

    So your comparing Clinton who did have a team who was monitoring Bin Laden
    and didn't go after him because there would likely be collateral damage
    Remember now .... This was before he did anything
    and Remember THE HUGE STINK that the republicans made when he did bomb that factory

    ... now your comparing that .... That to COMPLETELY IGNORING WARNINGS from the previous administration
    Foreign countries intelligence service
    ... AND YOUR OWN TERRORISM EXPERTS

    You're comparing that to Bill Clinton's monitoring of Bin Laden

    Are you THAT STUPID ?
    Or are you just trying to look that way?
