    this also reminds me of how congressman Chris Lee (R-NY) who resigned for doing just about the same thing, and was succeeded by democrat Kathy Hochul, or did you guys seem to forget?

    Hey, Look, PHD, nothing you have posted has anything to do with the thread topic but just more diversion to the past. Bush compared his policy on North Korea to Clinton's and that is a legitimate issue so what is your point? Don't recall Bush blaming Clinton for the recession he inherited or for driving the economy into a ditch. What I can point out is that NY 9 voted Republican for the first time in almost 90 years and that is huge.

This was a total and complete dishonest presentation void of Bush Administration officials blaming Clinton but the Obama cult here jumps on anything to try and justify their support for the incompetent in the WH. NY 9 got it, when will you, Pb, and others?
    Last time you tried making this point, you claimed Demcorats controlled the Senate when the 2001 recession began. Have you learned yet that you were wrong?

    • "Nobody organized this country or the international community to fight the terrorist threat that was upon us until 9/11. We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al-Qaida." ~ Condoleeza Rice


    • "They looked at our response after the hostage crisis in Iran, the bombings of the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the first World Trade Center attack, the killing of American soldiers in Somalia, the destruction of two U.S. embassies in Africa, and the attack on the USS Cole. They concluded that free societies lacked the courage and character to defend themselves against a determined enemy." ~ George Bush


    • "Well, we've tried summits in the past, as you may remember. It wasn't all that long ago where a summit was called and nothing happened, and as a result we had significant intifada in the area." ~ George Bush


    • "And in August, I was proud that our department produced a Pandemic Influenza Response and Preparedness Plan - something the previous administration failed to accomplish." ~ Tommy Thompson


    • "The United States tried direct dialogue with the North Koreans in the '90s, and that resulted in the North Koreans signing onto agreements that they then didn't keep." ~ Condoleezza Rice


    It's fairly pointless, you'll just get a deflection.

    NY 9 hasn't elected a Republican in almost 90 years, and as I posted the constituents wants Weiner to stay on so to claim this was because of the Weiner scandal is just plain bs.

    reminds me of the GODFATHER when The Don explains about paying back the favor he grants some day in the future.......

    Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me. ...

    I suspect this day for Conservative will never quite come either.

    Aw, BDS sheik found me. NY 9 elected a Republican for the first time in almost 90 and that was an anti Obama vote.

    No, you made an attack on liberals citing that they blame Bush when Bush is 2 years removed. You have thus been shown Bush officials doing the same much further out than 2 1/2 years. Thus your critique of liberals must apply to conservatives as well.

    But whatever Captain Deflection.

    But you have NO PROOF OF THAT. You have assumption and supposition, but that's it. Furthermore, in the SAME STATE two long term held Republican seats switched as well. That points MORE TO REBUKE OF INCUMBENTS, not this fantasy you have of this one data point indicating some massive shift against Obama.

    And the other 6 elections in New York that were all won by Democrats ... ? According to your logic, Democrats winning all 6 show support for Obama.
