    The Democrats lie and support liars. They seldom were, since the time of slavery, an honorable political party.

    The Weekly Standard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Weekly Standard is an American neoconservative[2][3][4][5][6] opinion magazine[7] published 48 times per year. Its founding publisher, News Corporation, debuted the title September 18, 1995. Currently edited by founder William Kristol and Fred Barnes, the Standard has been described as a "redoubt of neoconservatism" and as "the neo-con bible".[8][9] Since it was founded in 1995, the Weekly Standard has never been profitable, and has remained in business through subsidies from conservative benefactors such as former owner Rupert Murdoch.[10] Many of the magazine's articles are written by members of conservative think tanks located in Washington, D.C.: the American Enterprise Institute, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and the Hudson Institute. Some individuals who have written for the magazine include Elliott Abrams, Peter Berkowitz, John R. Bolton, Ellen Bork, Christopher Hitchens, Roger Kimball, Harvey Mansfield, Joe Queenan, David Brooks and John Yoo.
    Lol. I chuckled.

    So Geithner released a 500 page book and this paragraph is what neocons found to take home from it.

    Not his vociferously strong defense of the bailout. Not his stated admiration for the way the President handled the crisis and made the extremely unpopular, but correct, decisions. Not the part were Geithner explains how the desire to balance the budget came far too early and cost the economy 1% growth per year.

    Not, you know, what the book was actually about. This ****ing paragraph. And you know, the sad part is I expect no more from such a rudderless and ideologically bankrupt movement grasping for straws to rally the base.

    I can see the tea party chain emails flying, never mind that there is no there there. We always knew this guy was a liar. Deceiver. Always knew there was something about him not to like.
    down for you is up

    Geithner...what an economic loser.

    This macroeconomic ignoramus was flapping around saying everything was fine while the markets were collapsing (according to the Fed minutes at the time).

    And then they made this ding dong head of the Treasury.

    That should tell you all you need to know about the Obama administration.

    And the fact that G.W. Bush was the idiot that put Bernanke in charge of the Fed should tell you all you need to know about the G.W.Bush administration (that and the housing bubble he helped create).

    In other words...neither has/had a clue how to run an economy.

    And this is what happens when civics isn't taught in school. Democrats had access to the same information that Bush had and were on the oversight committees with access to classified information. Bush wasn't in office when Democrats helped pass the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998 and when many Democrats made quotes about Saddam Husseins WMD. You have way too much invested in that hate Bush propaganda and narrative promoted by the left.

    How much would you care to wager that if HRC is the democrat nominee you will PROUDLY vote for her?

    Guess what her position was on Saddam and WMDs...both long BEFORE George Bush became president and after...

    When did World War 2 end? Would you say the end of World War 2 was when the opponents we were fighting were defeated or when our troops were no longer on the ground?

    The same as her husband's position and that of many other Democrats who conveniently forgot all of the comments they had made when Clinton was President.
