Without Fail: machoprogrammer: Seriously, you can't have it both ways. IMO, neither president is responsible. Shiat happens

Bush was warned.
But, I don't hold him personally responsible.
He is responsible for attacking Iraq afterward.

If Obama attacks Canada for this bombing, then I'll concede that both sides are bad.


I agree Iraq was really stupid and Bush is absolutely responsible for that fark up.

yeegrek: OK conservatives, we need to talk.  We, by which I mean the center and the left, let you have that one.  You're welcome.  We let you have that one not because we agreed with it, or thought it was even close to basic reality.  We let you have that one because we were all so very done with Bush and company.  The previous 8 years were traumatizing as hell to us.  Your man-child preznit absolutely drove this country into the ground.  The US was a flaming wreck when he turned the keys over to Obama.  Depression, jobs crisis, banking crisis, real estate crisis, two wars being lost.  We were done.  We were done with him, we were done fighting with you over him, we were done explaining to you how truly awful he was on every possible level.  We realized that you needed to have some shred of substance to hang your hat onto, to claim that you hadn't foisted a complete and total incompetent jackass onto the most powerful nation on Earth.  So when you claimed that he "kept America safe", we just rolled our eyes and just waited for Obama to take office.  We remember him totally ignoring the pre 9/11 warnings.  We remember how he didn't catch any of the anthrax mailers. We remember the multiple embassy attacks (but Benghazi!!). we remember Jim David Adkisson, Mohammed Reza, the Beltway Sniper, the Seattle Jewish Federation shootings, the LAX shootings, and all the people in Iraq that hate the US with every fibre of their being because the US killed their family members.

But if you really want to re-litigate this one, we're happy to do so.  No, he did not keep us safe, and fark you for even trying to whip that one past us.

The most conservative estimate of deaths caused by the Iraq War is 110,000. Many educated estimates are much higher.

This is Michigan Stadium. It holds about 110,000 people.
Really stupid.
LOL

The Why Not Guy: HighOnCraic: I've got a feeling you're gonna get a lotta grief for saying that...

He may very well.

Look, most of us are doing a good job of waiting for the facts to come in rather than jumping to conclusions. And even the folks who admit to having suspicions are making it clear that they don't know for sure.

But. (there's always a but, isn't there?)

Our Tea Party friends have spent the last four years and change talking about how they came unarmed (this time) or bringing rifles to places where President Obama is speaking or reminding us that it's time to water the tree of liberty with blood. Ok, fine. They have every right to do just that. However, if that's the route they're going to take, don't be surprised or offended if people look at them when violence erupts.

And just so we're clear... my point isn't that I think a Tea Partier was behind the bombing. My point is that they're retards for embracing the rhetoric of violence or war in pretty much everything they do, and the only reason people are looking at them is because we've had nothing but vague (and not so vague) threats from them for years. Grow up and act like adults.


In fairness, I saw the line "History repeats the old conceits," and responded with another line from the song I thought the original poster was referring to.

A track from "The Best of Elvis Costello" is obscure on Fark?  That's just beyond belief!

History never repeats I tell myself before I go to sleep.
Don't say the words you might regret I've lost before you know I can't forget.

Well, well, well.

I think we have our answer to the question of "Would President Gore have had near-unanimous 90+% support after 9/11."

Don't forget the lady who spanked her kids on an airplane. Good thing she's in Gimo, now.

HAMMERTOE: (Above woman reportedly died at both Sandy Hook and in Boston.)


0bama resurrected her so he could kill her again.  Just like he did with Gandy Baugh.

machoprogrammer: So, it looks like the thread is as follows:

The Democrat nuthuggers on 9/11: OMG BUSH FARKED UP! WHAT A DOLT! LOL!
The Democrat nuthuggers now: No way Obama farked up. It would just be pure derp to claim that!

Seriously, you can't have it both ways. IMO, neither president is responsible. Shiat happens


uh, no - i believe this is in response to a moron who tweeted that this is obama's fault and bush kept us safe for eight years.

machoprogrammer: Seriously, you can't have it both ways. IMO, neither president is responsible. Shiat happens


well, if we find that obama's natsec advisor received a briefing entitled "terrorists plan to blow up boston marathon" and ignored it... then we'll talk about responsibility.

but, yes, shiat happens.
