    well, it appears somebody needs to pull their head out
    in reply to what is now in bold font, notice how wrong you are:
    On October 3, 2008, the Senate passed the $700 billion bank bailout bill. ...
    the presidential election was the following month
    guess what that means regarding who was president when the banks got their bailout
    i did the research for you. now tell us about your party and your supposed prinicples

    The emperor Obama has no clothes. The transparency of the oligarchy and our sham USA democracy has become all too apparent.

    - Oil Companies blatantly hiding and censoring the U.S. media after spills ...

    - Nuclear Power blatantly censoring the poisons and dangers from the free world ...

    - Military warmongers hiding behind Nobel Prizes and muppet TV news hosts hiding their slaughter behind Newspeak and words like "freedom" ...

    Hooray for fake and phony journalism!

    Hooray for illusionary freedom of the press and fake political rallies!

    Jon Stewart defends George W. Bush on MSNBC


    "Stewart said Bush "is not a war criminal," and said he believed the former president's assertions about Saddam Hussein's chemical and biological weapons programs prior to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq were what Bush "truly believed" at the time.

    Jon Stewart defends George W. Bush on MSNBC - The Washington Scene - TheHill.com


    "In contrast, host Rachel Maddow has in the past suggested that the Bush administration knowingly misled the American public about the imminent threat from Hussein's weapons program. She has also argued on air that U.S. actions during the Iraq war violated the Geneva Conventions, making the Commander-In-Chief, technically, a war criminal.

    Jon Stewart behaves exactly like lamestream media pro-war hacks, and its not accidental.No war criminal in the WH, and he agreed yesterday with Sarah Palin, right wing hatespeech is not to blame for AZ shooting, just a "lone nut."Stewart has his lamestream media talking points all in order as he performs his role as $6 million dollar man for Uncle Sam.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: PAPER: Military action against Iran 'likely'..

    Could it be that the Iranians are trying to goad the Israelis into an attack? Are they taking a page from the neocon playbook?

    Marty Martin, a former senior officer in the CIA, ran the unit that hunted Al Qaeda terrorists from 2002 to 2004. Iran’s most militant leaders “are goading the Israelis,” he tells The Daily Beast, “because a bombing will help them put their internal problems aside.”

    Martin, who spent most of his 25-year career at the CIA in the Middle East, argues that some clerics and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commanders, confronted with a discontented and restless population, are looking for ways to solidify public support. “The way they see it, if Israel bombs them it relieves the internal pressure,” says Martin. “Amid this turmoil, its always good to have an outside enemy.”

    Iran’s internal troubles include a 12 percent unemployment rate, a shattered economy (due in part to international sanctions), resentment over the oppressive regime, and widespread disgust over corruption.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... 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."

    With Obama having withdrawn all troops from Iraq, having not interfered during their street protests, and urging caution to Israel, he is probably not living up the Great Satan image that Iran has used in the past to bridge the divide between the leadership and the people.

    Most of the foreign policy experts I've heard, suggest that a strike on Iran would be a nationalistic cause that would draw the people closer in support of the leadership there, so I would say CIA officials have a good point.

    Would you lie and propagandize for the State, if you were paid Stewarts 6 million dollar annual salary?
