    Of course, AFTER the fact...they DENIED, denied, denied supporting it. Please watch...

    Look lets just admit they work together and only try to divide the voters

    And Geithner is a butt kisser of the plutocrats now selling a book. If he's claiming now, or then, that at that point in history SS was a 'contributor to the deficit' he's taking an elitist view of the issue that disregards the trillions then sitting in the SS 'trust fund' - that's the amount SS had REDUCED the debt those guys kissing bankers' and the CEO class rear ends are now so worried about.

    I agree with that - Geithner and guys like him are just taking orders.

    What amazes me about Geithner is he was President of the NY Fed from 2003-2009, and he was the watchdog assigned to some of the world's largest banks as the biggest global debt bubble of all time inflated then burst. And for that massive professional failure, putting the entire world financial system at risk, which was at its core his ONLY job to prevent, he was rewarded with Sec. of the Treasury. The only way a guy fails upward like that is if he's a dependable puppet.

    If we didn't have a system corrupt at its core, and controlled by the guys he was tasked to oversee, he'd have retired in disgrace and be an economics instructor in some backwater college somewhere. It's depressing anyone cares what this fool has to say about anything.

    Please tell me you are just saying that, and deep down you really rather have honest government.

    Anyone who thinks we're told the truth, or ever will be told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth from our government is living in wonderland.

    Would I rather our government was always truthful? No, not really. I've got enough to worry about.

    In the words of Jack, "You can't handle the truth!". I can. I would like to hear it, always. Even if I look fat in a dress.

    Thats what happens when you don't tell Congress that the primary source of your "intelligence" is a known pathological liar making drunk phone calls to a German embassy and whom your allies have told you is a raving lunatic. How many of the Democrats, or Republicans for that matter, would have voted for the war had they known that the source was the looney tune codenamed "Curveball"?

    If "they" means Republicans and Democrats, there is NOTHING to disagree with BEFORE the war began. After the war started is when the lies began on the part of the honorable, uh dishonorable democrats in that video.

    Attack the messenger again, huh? He certainly wasn't a 'butt kisser' while he towed the party line.
