Same reason as always--to benefit the president's buddies in the military industrial complex and the banksters who will underwrite the loans.
Voted on the basis of lies supplied by the Bush administration and an atmosphere of intimidation also supplied by the Bush administration. Have you forgotten "you're with us or against us"? Have you forgotten the anthrax targeting Democratoc legislators and "liberal" news media? Have you forgotten Wellstone, Daschle, Dayton?
He didn't say that at all. He tried to keep the Iraq war going. He tried to keep the troops there after the withdrawal date that had been negotiated by Bush. The Iraqi government wouldn't let him stay.
I remember when we used to sneer at the Soviets when their products had defects. We blamed their troubles on communism. Back in those days there were more than two manufacturers of commercial aircraft in the western world.
Now there are only two manufacturers of commercial aircraft. Am I wrong to blame Boeing's trouble on ogopoly capitalism?
Maybe it's because guys like you are so annoying that you hurt your own cause?
What's your obsession with taxes, c4f? Are you afraid you're going to have to turn in your lexus on a bulck or something? Have to give up Michelob for Budweiser?
Obama grew up in the household of a rich crony of a right wing dictator who killed a million progressives. You guys live in a fantasy world.
There is, as Real Clear Politics’ Sean Trende has argued, a distinct correlation between the president's job approval rating and how his caucus performs down-ballot every election cycle. And President Obama’s sinking numbers seem to be immensely benefiting none other than New Hampshire U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown -- a GOP hopeful many pollsters believed had little chance of winning just a few weeks ago.
In July, according to a WMUR Granite State poll, incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was crushing her presumptive GOP opponent by a dozen percentage points -- 50 percent to 38 percent, respectively. Now, however, the same in-state survey shows the race is very much in play:
Last month, Brown trailed Shaheen in the WMUR Granite State Poll by 12 points. The new poll shows Shaheen leading brown by 2 points, 46 percent to 44 percent.
"I feel very good because when I'm going out and about into people's businesses, holding town halls -- town halls are an important thing -- and conveying my thoughts about being an independent voice for New Hampshire, it's resonating," Brown said.
"This will go down as one of the most important days of this New Hampshire U.S. Senate contest," said James Pindell of WMUR Political Scoop. "For much of the year, this race appeared to be slipping away from Scott Brown, but now he's back and within the margin of error."
The idiot has driven the economy into a ditch, now he's put the whole country in danger with his incompetence. Time to give him another shellacking in November.
He is not making it up. With the Dreamliner it is not needed.
NEW DELHI: It is raining trouble for Air India's Dreamliner fleet as one of the aircraft was forced to return here on Thursday after developing a windshield crack mid-air on its way to Kolkata.
The incident comes a day after a Boeing 787 was grounded in Seoul as a "precautionary" measure for suspected engine trouble and two days after another aircraft was grounded at Dubai following a snag in its spoilers, which are plates on the top surface of a wing that can reduce the lift of an aircraft.
In today's incident, the aircraft, operating flight AI-020 from Delhi to Kolkata, returned here after its windshield cracked while it was overflying Lucknow. The passengers were later flown to Kolkata on a Boeing 777-300, airline sources said.
Although there are several layers in an aircraft's windshield and the cracks occur mostly on the outer one, which does not affect flight safety, the pilots decided to return after the incident, they said. Such cracks occur either due to uneven heating or an object hitting it.
There have been several incidents of windshield cracking in Air India's Dreamliner fleet in the past months, even causing planes to be grounded in Paris, Sydney and Frankfurt.
In the case of the aircraft grounded in Seoul, they said it would be tomorrow inspected by engineers of the engine manufacturer, GE, before it is given the signal to fly. The engineers were being flown to Seoul from US.

About 240 Air India passengers, who were stranded in the South Korean capital, have been flown back to India by other airlines. This Dreamliner was operating in the Delhi-Hong Kong -Seoul sector and the airline had to cancel the return leg of the flight.
The decision on the Seoul grounding was a precautionary measure taken after the US Federal Aviation Administration found that a particular series of GE's GenX-1B67 engines had a problem in their gear box, as experienced by the Dreamliner of another global airline.
While Air India's entire current fleet of 16 Dreamliners has the same engine, the national carrier has three engines of this particular series, including two in the plane now grounded in Seoul.
