I keep telling you to go take a course or two in economics so you can stop making an ass of yourself. To attribute the decent economy during the Bush years to govt spending on security is totally bogus. And what exactly would you libs have done after 911 Sent a cake to Bin Laden?
Exactly how was Iraq going to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons? The more logical scenario would be for Iraq to acquire their own nukes. As for destroying Iraq, polls of the Iraqis show the mahjority think the liberation of Iraq was a good thing. Why is it that the libs, who are supposed to be so concerned about everyones rights, usually wind up siding with dictators?
We can start working on that right after we get done paying off the $4tril that Obama has added in just 3 years. And the $10tril his last budget forecast adding over the next 10 years.
Why is it only war debt that concerns you? The cost of both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan come to about $1.3 tril. That is for two wars lasting a decade. Obama managed to add $4tril in new debt, so war is clearly not the major cause of deficits and the national debt.
The debacle the Dems suffered a year ago was NOT by tiny margins.
It was pretty easy to see by the tenor of the protests when
Get over it. Union membership has been steadily declining since the 70s. Voters in many states have had enough of paying generous salaries, full health care benefits, then seeing civil service folks retire at 50 to take on a second civil service position while collecting a generous pension for the first. Of of holding down TWO civil service jobs at the same time. Or of toll collectors making $100K+, as is going on here in NJ. So politicians are making some changes, like asking those civil service workers to pay part of their medical insurance costs, just like most of the taxpayers who are paying their salaries do.
I'll just wait for the election that's less than a year away.
So, now it was a trick capturing Bin Laden?
