    They did not have "access to essentially the same intelligence as the President," don't be ridiculous.

    Here's the NIE the president had ...

    ...and here's the NIE that everyone in the Congress had ...

    http://usiraq.procon.org/sourcefiles...20Estimate.pdf

    Those two documents not alike, not even "essentially."

    The only members of Congress who had access to the 96 page NIE the president had access to were the members of the intelligence committees and they are not allowed to provide classified intell to other members without the proper clearance. That doesn't mean intelligence committee members don't sometimes slip up but that is not access.

    I will never blame you for lack of effort to spew book smart ignorance but will blame you for ignoring substance and actual facts.

    How did the members of the intelligence committee who had full access to the intelligence vote on the Iraq War Authorization?

    Now you are just looking desperate to get the last word.

    What the **** does "book smart ignorance" even mean?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Book smart ignorance means you ignore human nature/behavior and individual personalities which drives activity more than any theory or economic principles. People cannot print money therefore will react differntly than the govt. that can print money. Economic activity is driven more by human nature and desires than you will admit.

    When the Federal govt. raises taxes or the states raise taxes, individuals will migrate to lower tax states which means states like TX and N.D. or other low tax states and that is why states have different economic conditions and are affected by the recession differently. Since people cannot print money they will help their economic condition by getting away from higher state taxes as they are locked in to higher Federal Taxes with little they can do about it other than move which they will do.

    It means having a ****ing clue what you're talking about, which is anathema to some Conservatives.

    Nope! Book smart ignorance is an oxymoron you created as a defense mechanism whenever someone brings up a point in which you do not understand. Instead of actually trying to learn something, you go off on a tangent that has absolutely nothing to do with this thread, e.g.

    After explaining that some European nations are stuck in a demand trap as a result of non-sovereign central banking mechanisms of the Eurozone, you reply with:

    Which has absolutely NOTHING to do with my point at all. Its as if i am describing a particular play during a football game, and you are responding with how many strikeouts so-and-so had last season. If you refuse to stay relevant, then we have nothing further to discuss.

    Yep, I am sure you are an expert on my background and experience level. I only hope that someday I can be half as smart as most liberals believe they are including you.

    It shows he is just desperate to get off topic.
