    Typical Govt. Get them all out. Hobo's on the street could do a better job. Hell, the liberals would probably like that and the homeless would jobs...

    Just kidding of course.

    Are you claiming that Fox is covering for Obama's blowing of $9 billion?

    Do yourself a big favour next time and read the article before you add your 2 cents. This happened under Bush.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You are crazy.... the parties you cite are nothing but hypocrites.

    As you well pointed out, if they were true to their convictions, they would be all over this as well as whatever else gets their panties in a bunch.

    You're painting witha rather broad brush... Keep your stereotypes to yourself.

    How can you possibly insinuate that it might have been Obama and his merry bunch of sanctimonius thieves, to my way of understanding, considering the timeline in which this money was available for Iraqi reconstruction, I believe it would come down to Bush/Cheney and his merry bunch of santimonius thieves.

    Excerpted from “US 'fails to account' for Iraq reconstruction billions,” BBC, 27 July 2010 Last updated at 11:57 ET
    According to the report, the Pentagon is unable to fully account for $8.7bn of funds it withdrew between 2004 and 2007, and of that amount it "could not provide documentation to substantiate how it spent $2.6bn".
    Added emphasis.
    Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible. Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    It seems to me that anyone that is honest about fiscal responsibility would be outraged about $9B just disappearing, especially those that had any objection to the $80B auto bailout, for which there is at least an accounting and likely a full recovery.
