    I've got a feeling we're about to blame Bush for this.

    Is that where you're headed with this?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    I know during the Reagan administration there were no cell phones. They had these big mobile radio phones that millionaires could only afford.

    The original life line phones were land line phones and were required to be rotary dial phones so they couldn't be used to contact your local drug dealer's pager. Oh yeah, no toll calls were allowed.

    LOL....once again...typical conservative hypocrisy. Point the finger of blame all the while rationalizing your hero's failures and failure to take responsibility for anything. You are sooooo predictable that it is kind of funny.

    We've had this argument 500 times. You'll never get a Republican to admit that.

    Not really shocking. At the time there were millions of retired elderly who were living on fixed incomes who were being taxed (property taxes) and couldn't make ends meet. They couldn't afford even paying for a phone in their homes so they could have access to make an emergency phone call for paramedics, fire or police.

    The original intentions were morally right. It was during the Clinton administration when the abuse began and was expanded so those druggies in the inner cities could have a free phone so they would have more money to spend on crack and that 40 ouncer.

    Before Obama is forced to resign or is impeached and convicted, I wonder if we'll see free Obama broadband internet service. And I'm sure we'll soon see Obama lap tops and Obama smart phones.

    Using your logic, any murder committed using a gun isn't the murderer's fault, it's the guy who invented the gun in China centuries ago because that's where it started.

    Is there any reason why a liberal wants a Democrat President in the Oval Office when he/she apparently hasn't any direct impact on what goes on there and is at the mercy of whatever Republican President was in the office previously? Why not just leave it to those who accept responsibility and know how to use it?

    And just like an Obama supporter always placing blame on someone else for his failures. Again, keep ignoring the facts while buying the lies. Where are the impeachment charges against Bush? Why aren't there any? When faced with the Obama failures you divert. Typical liberalism

    Disneydude, have you ever read the 9/11 Commission Report ? You are aware of Attorney General Janet Reno's "Wall" where it was illegal for the CIA, NSA and military intelligence to share information with the FBI, USMS, U.S. Customs and INS and other state, county and local law enforcement which resulted in not being able to connect the dots ?

    The 9/11 Commission also found that it was political correctness that allowed the Al Qaeda terrorist to board those planes on that morning on 9-11-01.

    You are aware that it was the Clinton administration who said Al Qaeda was not a national security issue but a law enforcement issue ?

    Going back to the Carter administration, but actually the Democrats in Congress who castrated the CIA so they couldn't do their job and protect America.

    You do know why President Clinton refused to allow the CIA and U.S. military to take out Bin Laden when they had him in their sights ?

    And if you ever read Osama bin Laden's declaration of war on America, Bin Laden's first Fatwa (1996) you would see where OBL looked upon Clinton as a pantywaist and believed America was a paper tiger and could get away with attacking America on it's own soil. Unfortunately for Bin Laden, Bush was POTUS on 9-11-01 and Bush was no pantywaist.

    BTW: Did you see Panetta over the weekend on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria 360" where he said he believes that it was the information that was gathered by using enhance interrogation during the Bush administration that led to finding Osama bin Laden and taking Bin Laden out ?
