Hmmm, since the executive and not the legislative branch is responsible for our protection, I see a small flaw in your logic.

Ah, yes, I must've skipped that "the executive branch is solely responsible for the American people's protection" clause in high school civics class. . . . Thanks for reminding me.

Ya know, I came to this thread to see some clever jokes and a little good 'ol political humor. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the republican apologists would be out like rapid dogs defending Mr. Cheney...


Look, everyone likes to bash on Cheney, but this man has proved again and again that not only can he successfully run oil companies, but he can steer our country in the right direction. We haven't had any more terror attacks. Have we? Iraqis are living better lives now that they have benefitted from Iraqi oil rebuilding, and the PATRIOT Act has done more to ensure our freedom than any Clintonesque policy.

It's no coincidence that we have oil men running our country. It's big business dealing with the terrorists, and I'm happy that Cheney has the pace-maker spirit to know to fight them on their own soil, and not ours. Vote in a Democratic Senate, and the terrorists have won(tm).

evilstein: Great! So the Democrats can strip away more of our civil rights that they claim they're protecting.

Notice how many of the Ds are involved with hollywood and copyright crap. Oh, and there's the usual pissing on Constitutional amendments.

either way, we're screwed.


Fewer and fewer people believe this kind of BS anymore. Please stop trying to catapult it.

Not until after the elections.

Not defending this administration. But, with the memo that stated an attack exactly like this was coming crossing the presidents desk and being ignored, I'd say saving face is one possible reason for attempting to stop investigations.
===============================================

And what do you think is the reason that all of these memos and warnings were ignored? Simple gross incompetence?

Pocket Ninja It's obvious that if the Democratic party wins control of the House and/or Senate, the Republicans will engineer a terrorist attack so they can prove that the Democrats are weak on defense. I'd stay away from tall buildings for a while.

So does that mean the Democrats engineered 9/11 to make the Republicans look bad ?

If a 3rd party wins will the Democrats and Republicans each blow up some buildings to make the 3rd party look bad ?

Would be happy if just one year leaders could be chosen in fights to the death ! 4,326 politicians enter, 1 politician leaves !

Bhopper:

I'm pretty far left on most issues yet I want the Dems to LOSE both houses. Why should they inherit this nearly incomprehensible mess made by W and his daddy's friends?

IF the Dems take back one or both houses, there is no doubt they will then get blamed for some of what's going to go wrong the next few years, even though most of it will be the results of this Administration's utter malfeasance and their ability to bide time.


I mentioned something like that to a liberal friend of mine and he freaked out.

He said it is critical that we get the country back on track as soon as possible and stop the Bush agenda, blah blah you know the rest.

I agree with him but at the same time if the Democrats take back either the House, Senate or both this November the "but the Democrats" is going to replace "but Clinton" as the go-to phrase for Republicans.

And should another terrorist attack happen?

I can't even imagine the rampant jingoism that would take place.

Umm... shredding trucks were at my house last week, and I'm not an elected official. What's the big deal? I only have to keep tax and business records for 8 years, and I needed the closet space.

The big deal is that it wasn't a shredding truck. It was the short bus, and you missed it.

DROxINxTHExWIND:Typical. Here's another one for you. Please, give me one logical reason why the Bush Administration would attempt to block an investigation of the most horrific terrorist attack in American history? Please. Just give me ONE reason why he and Cheney would have to 'negotiate' terms of their testimony? Just one.

They dont want information to get out, duh.

Oh you Cons are so great with your "Look over there its Nancy Pelosi BOO" rhetoric. Thats what never gets old, seeing you guys fear-monger for 6 years only to see it blow up in your face

------------
Actually, I'm in a great mood. If you'll notice I was asked a question, I never brought Pelosi up.

Speaking of Pelosi (may as well throw in Reid and Dean too). Where have have these fine leftists been during the campaign? Very smart move by the DNC keeping them hidden and telling them to stfu until the election is over.
 
2006-10-31 02:10:54 PM
Bull_Moose You mean an executive with top-secret clearance might have things around that need to be shredded? Wow, you guys are on to something.

When you inspire distrust people suspect everything you do.
When you inspire trust no one pays much attention to anything you do.

I would say the government has inspired a pretty good amount of distrust so pretty much anything and everything they do will be assumed dishonest.

2006-10-31 02:14:38 PM Jake Steed - Uhh Jake. The story isn't the base attack. It is the casualties. The US military stated there were only two minor injuries.

The links I posted list the names, ranks, and units of 300 US soldiers that were alive and well on 10/15. If that isn't the case now, why?

For all of the self proclaiming moonbats in the thread, as I have said before they did find WMD in Iraq not that you would care to hear it this time. Find a definition of WMD and look at the mustard gas and serine that was found. Also, the stated reason to go into Iraq was because Saddam had not complied with the disposal of the WMD's that everyone knew he had and he had admitted to having.

If there's a God, then Rove will most likely have a post-mortem job in Heaven. You see, God controls all that happens on Earth and its Universe. Therefore, God plans these wars and has placed Rove in a position to move the pieces. Of course, Satan may outbid, and Rove goes down to Hell to plan more ways that cellphones can be annoying to people.

The only people reporting casualties at Falcon Base are well known sympathizers of the Iraq insurgency. It took about three minutes of Googling to learn that.

Sure, Cheney is shredding his 8 year-old tax documents. And oil revenues will more than pay for the Iraqi war we must wage to route out WMD's and spread democracy to the M.E., right, Assgasket?

Although maybe he is tending to his finances, he was paid over $9 million by Halliburton *last year* in "deferred salary." (why do we never hear about that?)

Come on Jake, Bush is campaign poison this cycle.

He is only stumping in already solidly red races.

Why else would candidates suddenly have full schedules when he's going to be in their area?

It's okay, you can say something negative about your boyfriend-in-chief, the internet and Fark is largely anonymous so he'll never know.

I think it is plausible that if Democrats recapture BOTH houses, President Stoopid and Vice President Evil will try to prevent the 110th Congress from being seated. They'll use "terrism" or some stupid excuse to do this."

That would cause the Second American Civil War.
