one vote,you mention expensive wars. Tell me, why are the deficits higher
now that the wars have wound down than when they were at their peak? And
I'm including OFF-BUDGET expenditures for the wars as well as those
included in the budget. Why is BO running larger deficits without the height of
the wars than bush ran WITH the height of the wars? BTW, the dems approved the
military actionalso, it was not the wars the wrecked the economy,
but the collapse of the barney-frank induced housing bubble that wrecked the
LDS Liberal--I didn't say anything about starting a war. Nothing. Obama
is like a school teacher threatening a noisy class with idle threats.--What
happened with passed presidents are irrelevant, and are weak excuses. @one vote-- Combined spending on all American wars don't equal one
trillion dollars, let alone multi trillions.--Wars are good for the economy, as
it expands industry, and jobs.
He has not started any multi trillion dollar wars to ruin the economy.
He must of mentioned Collins the NBA guy that came out of the closet. Heard he
phoned him and commented how much courage he showed. Compare that to what he has
down for the families of the Benghazi cover up.
Chemical weapons he dismisses as not a big problem. Benghazi must not have been
a problem at all as Mitt Romney dropped that discussion real quickly when the
President had the moderator defend his position without a qualm. If there is a
Canadian involvement in this latest Boston bombing, it is sort of reminiscent of
the 9/11 aircraft that took off from Boston with less than viable security. And
of course, he can't have a news conference without discussing how his
extreme knowledge and expertise of the United States of America's
constitutional second amendment and the historical background on that amendment
since Benjamin Franklin inventions were born. Whether he was born in the United
States of America he seems to lack basic beliefs of people who fought and
sustained the freedoms of our country and rights to be free and not in bondage
to outsiders.He does find time to discuss his favorite sport and the
rough and tough Chicago rules on and off the court. If there is anything of
value or of good report, he doesn't seek after those things. It is a shame
that he could have made a difference in this troubled world.
worfMcallen, TXMaking threats you don't know how to keep is
embarrassing to this country.3:02 p.m. April 30, 2013================ How could it be any more embarassing than telling
the world you know Iraq has chemical weapons and has used them on his people ---
so you attack them, invade them , and occupy them only to discover they
don't even HAVE said chemical weapons?!Seriously, Didn't you learn ANYTHING from what we just went through?
@DN Subscriber 2"and rates are skyrocketing"Actually
rate increases the past 3 years are lower than they've been in half a
century. Of course, in fairness, part of that is due to the recession. So
you're saying rates are skyrocketing when they aren't. Obamacare
isn't even fully implemented anyway so that it's impact on healthcare
prices is pretty minimal at this point since most of the bill goes into effect
2014. @Liberal Ted"Inflation has slowed to the point
economists now fear deflation. "Oh come on... you all were
railing against Obama saying our money was going to be worthless due to
hyperinflation so we need to bring down the debt and people need to invest in
gold... now you're blaming him for too little inflation?
Making threats you don't know how to keep is embarrassing to this country.
blah blah blah blahAnd in other real news. Unemployment remains
stubbornly high. Inflation has slowed to the point economists now fear
deflation. Government printing of money is on track to match Japan. More jobs
have been sent over seas. Guns have never forced a person to harm another
person. Pot smokers in Colorado with guns attacked other pot smokers during
their "peaceful" love and flower park infestation. Leaving behind a
hefty cost to the taxpayers to clean up after the filth.During his
speech another 20 unborn children were slaughtered before and after birth.But this regime resolve is strong. If they can protect one child by
disarming all legal law abiding gun owners then it's worth it. If millions
die at their funding, then it's worth it also. After all they were for
life, before they were against it.blah blah blah blah
@LDS LiberalLet me guess; you get your news from Rachel Maddow and Chris
Matthews?How does that feel to you? Are you here to defend
Obama's leadership or just throw rocks at other posters?Defend
Obama's comments about Syria and the handling of the Boston bombing.
That's fair game.But it's simply bad form to ridicule other
LonestarRunnerSalt Lake City, UT======== Let me
guess, You listen to Glenn Beck this morning?[I heard the same
thing too, nice parroting LonestarRunner. FYI - this is the Deseret News,
not 'the Blaze']
The first question had two parts-- one about Syria and the other about whether
officials with information about Bengazhi would be allowed to testify. I was
listening on KSL radio and they cut away before he got to the second part and
now this article doesn't give his response either. Did he answer that part
of the question, and if so, how? If not, why?
Asked about one senator who recently said national security protections have
deteriorated since he became president, Obama said, Sen. Lindsey "Graham is
not right on this issue,..."Graham, the Republican South
Carolina senator, responded to his comment about national security."With all due respect, Mr. President, Benghazi and Boston are compelling
examples of how our national security systems have deteriorated on your
watch." He referred to the attack that killed three Americans at a U.S.
diplomatic post in Libya last year, as well as the marathon bombing.It's time for the Obama administration to stop stonewalling and come
clean on what really happened in Benghazi.
The president is either delusional, ill-informed, or simpley being untruthful
with the American people, and the world.Everything he has worked on
is worse, even if he insists that up is down and down is up, as Al Gore once
did. Obamacare is way behind schedule for implementation, and rates are
skyrocketing- but he claims it is working and cutting costs.However,
no matter how little he cares about, or works to fix, the economy, Syria,
Afghanistan, our crippling deficit, he was at least able to express an opinion
on some basketball player's sexual orientation. Good to see him working
the priority issues.Ben Ghazi, Fast and Furious- he still does not
know anything (or will not admit knowing anything) about those issues.I pity our country, for what he has done to it.
