    To hippies who said he was a Nazi, he replied, “I was killing fascists when you punks were in diapers.” Another memorable quote: “They’re building a bridge over the Potomac for all the white liberals fleeing to Virginia.”

    The Wallace campaign was comfortably ahead in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Wallace’s aides insisted that the campaign focus on winning the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee.

    Seems Wallace did quite well up north in the Democrat Primaries.

If anyone is anti-American and anti-military, it is you right now for your white washing of the Iraq debacle.

    Now, we have a bigger, more deadly mess. Let's try and deal with the present and not some irrelevant fact that is 11 years old.
    The Iraqi government failed to control their country. They also refused to agree to exempt international assistance forces from the Iraqi Judicial system. That was a requirement for the SOFA. It is their mess and their mess alone. I know you are DYING to blame this on Obama, but only a raging out of control partisan hack would ignore the issue with the SOFA. Furthermore, you have to be exceptionally delusional to think we know you wouldn't immediately blame Obama for agreeing to the Iraqi demands for a SOFA.

    Again, your MO is to blame the Democrats for everything and pretend that Republican time was rainbows and butterflies. You are one of the most obvious partisan hacks on the forum. See Ockam's post? He gets why the SOFA died. Do you see him blaming Obama? Not. At. All.

    I also have to imagine that the invaders are getting support from local Sunni groups. That's basically the only way these kinds of gains are feasible.

    They simply wouldn't have the manpower otherwise.
    They've liberated a lot of cash since their invasion, but I agree that they had serious financial support before they launched their offensive. There's no telling where from. Russia perhaps? The Chinese?

    I agree that many Blacks vote for the Democrats and have never understood why. The same with Jews.

    Who knows. I wouldn't put it past Putin, though it seems somewhat unlikely given ISIS' antagonistic relationship with Syria.

    Especially when CRA loans made up a very small portion of NPLs and that the majority of NPLs were issued from non-CRA loans. There is no question that the CRA provided market incentive for non-CRA banks to get in on it, but no one forced the issuers of the vast majority of NPLs to issue those loans.

    Of course bombs were going off as we were leaving, because...we were leaving!

    As I stated before, this is what happens when you give the bad guys a heads up that you're breaking camp.
