When you say the Prez I assume you mean Bush because he was the one who signed the agreement to remove American troops. What would you have Obama do sent another 100000 American troops into Iraq?
I guess you have zero self perspective because you do exactly what you are saying I do. I am as objective as I can and vote for both Republicans and Democrats. I was an early tea party supporter I even went to rallies then I could not believe what some of the people were saying. You are wrong about many of the things you believe.
I guess I don't listen to political radio shows that over simplify every problem so I have no idea what you are talking about.
No their deaths were a tragedy, but bad things happen in the world. Using their deaths as a political weapon is disrespectful and dishonest. Moreover the countless baseless accusations makes it much easier for politicians on the right and left to dodge real scandals.
It takes a lot of gall for people like Dick Cheney to utter even one critical word about President Obama's strategy to eliminate the threat of ISIL in the Middle East.
In fact, it was the unnecessary Bush/Cheney Iraq War that created the conditions that led directly to the rise of the "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL).
Former George H.W. Bush Secretary of State James Baker said as much on this week's edition of "Meet the Press." He noted that after the first President Bush had ousted Saddam Hussein from Kuwait in 1991, the U.S. had refrained from marching on Baghdad precisely to avoid kicking over the sectarian hornet's nest that was subsequently unleashed by the Bush/Cheney attack on Iraq in 2003.
But it wasn't just the War in Iraq itself that set the stage for the subsequent 12 years of renewed, high-intensity sectarian strife between Sunni's and Shiites in the Middle East. It was also what came after.
Bush's "de-Bathification program" eliminated all vestiges of Sunni power in Iraqi society and set the stage for the Sunni insurrection against American occupation and the new Shiite-led government. Bush disbanded the entire Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army and bureaucracy. He didn't change it. He didn't make it more inclusive of Shiites and Kurds. He just disbanded it. It is no accident that two of the top commanders of today's ISIL are former commanders in the Saddam-era Iraqi military.
General Petraeus took steps to reverse these policies with his "Sunni Awakening" programs that engaged the Sunni tribes against what was then known as Al Qaeda in Iraq. But the progress he made ultimately collapsed because the Bush/Cheney regime helped install Nouri Al-Maliki as Prime Minister who systematically disenfranchised Sunnis throughout Iraq.
And that's not all. The War in Iraq -- which had nothing whatsoever to do with "terrorism" when it was launched -- created massive numbers of terrorists that otherwise would not have dreamed of joining extremist organizatio
Made up scandals make it easier for politicians to dodge real scandals. Thanks to the nut jobs the President can be accused of anything and everyone assumes its just the desperate wingnuts again. BTW Benghazi only works in the RWNJ conspiracy community.
true. I guess you could also say that the founding fathers were liberals they didn't like the conservative or existing way and sought to change things.
So you find ONE website that supports you and you ignore the hundreds of Scientific societies, Universities, Government agencies etc that all agree climate change is real and is likely caused by human activities. I don't understand why its more important to you to be right and inline with your politics than you admit we have a major problem and help figure a way to solve it.
Look no one says that every conservative opinion is wrong but climate change is real and you should be ashamed of supporting a political lie.

Too much competition and as far as I can tell UPS is no better than Fed Ex or the dozen other competitors. Costco is interesting because they have a competitive advantage.
could be but the fundamentals are very good anyway so the takeoff should happen. Costco has shown it knows how to make money and they are just ramping up. Lots and lots of room to build new warehouses across the globe.
Its no use trying to convince the RWNJs of climate change. They will be in denial until their politicians realize they have to admit its real. Once they can't deny it they will start with well there is nothing we can do because China and India are not doing anything.
Here we go with the stupidity Bush liked the United States but Obama doesn't. Can't you nut jobs hold a view without seeing a different view as evil????????
