    The bolded is the only reason why I voted Yes, If Obama gets back in, we have not seen anything like an unfettered idealogue such as obama and the damage he will do in the name of the cancer that is progressive liberalism. Imagine if he were no longer worried about his politcal future how much damage beyond what he has already done, he could do.

    In many ways he was, His cuts to the intelligence community and his style of leadership caused many of the compartmenting of information problems that directly led to the inability of a demoralized and severely depleted and under manned security and intelligence community to develope realtime and interchangeable data streams which allowed the 9-11 plot to go unoticed till it was to late.

    IF your point was Bill Clinton was Responsible for his part in 9-11 then yes I made it for you. This isnt even debateable. Its Common Knowledge and historical Fact. Thanks for agreeing with me!

    If by "historical fact" you mean "I heard it on Fox News," then yes. Bill Clinton made several attempts to capture Bin Laden, even if they're weren't particularly effective, and had a strong counter-terrorism task force. When Bush came into office, it was promptly ignored, along with the several warnings from many different sources that a terrorist attack was imminent. As you demonstrate, though, conservatives have no problem blaming Clinton for something that was clearly and obviously Bush's fault, and I have no doubt you'll continue blaming Obama for the failures of whoever comes after him.

    This morning, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was floored by McConnell’s open admission that his single most important goal is to defeat Obama. “Mitch McConnell said that?!? … He admitted that on the record?!? That is embarrassing,” he said. “Can I just say for the record – that is pathetic.”

    Wow. If you felt? And you can see into the long term, i.e. future that well. And what would it take to insure that you were going to be successful? Do you know what sabotage is? How many would have to suffer and how much (e.g. no health care and death) short term?

    Re: Would you drive the country into another recession...

    Lets see unemployment numbers are going back up, inflation ...at least on those things needed for people to survive on , is on the rise. Our dollar is getting to all time lows again other currencies, we've borrowed ourselves so far into debt, I'm not sure we can ever recover from it. Business is still shipping jobs over seas, the housing market is showing signs of dipping again. … hmmm thats the short list …. and someone is retarded enough to ask the question are we willing to drive the country into “another” recession ????

    Heres a suggestion … lets get the f**k out of the one we are in first

    Re: Would you drive the country into another recession...

    Personally I hope to God Obama doesn't get elected again.

    With that said I don't wish for anything bad to happen to this country. If it was gaurunteed that removing Obama from office would cause a recession worse than what we are currently in then *grinds teeth* I would vote to keep him in office. Might hate it..but I would do it for my countries benefit.
