My voting record:

Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan
George Bush
Bob Dole
George Bush
John Kerry
Barack Obama
Barack Obama

Getting a pattern here Republicans? There are lots of people like me. There is no freaking way I'll ever vote GOP again in my lifetime. No way. Not after what they did and how many Americans died because of George Bush's failed oil wars. The loser didn't even get the oil. What a failure. Now Republicans think we are so dumb they can rewrite history and make this war criminal some sort of hero. Sick.

Couple points to note out to the (R)tard congressman:

1 - These jihadist that "reached" their target were NOT foreign nationals, but Americans.

2 - Did someone forget about the Beltway Sniper Mr. John Allen Muhammad?  Killed 11 people under Bush.

3 - Lastly, are you REALLY going to compare 9/11 to Boston?  Did Obama get 5 warnings that Boston was going to happen and still sat on his ass.

I love how all the Conservatives are saying AFTER 9/11 Bush keep us safe.  If that is so, doesn't Obama get a "reset" on the whole keeping us safe?

/Screw him and the entire GOP / Conservative Media making b.s. politics out of Boston.

Just to point out how much of a fatasy land Republicans live in, let me point out the reality...

2001 September 11: . The attacks killed nearly 3,000 civilians.

2002 July 4: 2002 Los Angeles Airport shooting Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, a 41-year-old Egyptian national, kills two Israelis and wounds four others at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport.

October 2002 Beltway sniper attacks: During three weeks in October 2002, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo killed 10 people and critically injured 3 others in Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Virginia. The pair were also suspected of earlier shootings in Maryland, Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, and Washington state.No motivation was given at the trial, but evidence presented showed an affinity to the cause of the Islamic jihad.

2006 March 5: Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar injured 6 when he drove an SUV into a group of pedestrians at UNC-Chapel Hill to "avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world".

2006 July 28: Seattle Jewish Federation shooting, Naveed Afzal Haq, an American citizen of Pakistani descent, kills one woman and shoots five others at the Jewish Federation building in Seattle. During the shooting, Haq told a 911 dispatcher that he was angry with American foreign policy in the Middle East.

/these are only the ones in Bush's watch that were solved, some bombings have not been solved and could have also been done by "jihadists" (not listed).
// the Fox news article even listed the "underwear bomber" as successfully making his target, that is a lie,he was stopped before the bomb exploded.

If you ever want to compare the collective character of American liberals vs. American conservatives, all you have to do is look at what was said about Bush in the days after 9/11, and what was said about Obama in the days after Benghazi.

Bush's approval rating soared to 92% after 9/11.  Why do you think that is?  He hadn't yet taken any concrete actions, and he hadn't done anything extraordinary.  That number is the simple result of liberals, as a block, placing their country ahead of their party.  Compare that to republicans tripping over themselves to try and take political advantage of Benghazi, including Romney spouting off against the president based on incorrect information THE SAME DAY, while American service men and women were still being shot at.

The underwear bomber boarded a plane in Amsterdam and unless his target was his own testicles he failed miserably

 The times square bomber was foiled by a couple of hot dog vendors and managed to kill nothing other than a Home Depot Card and a 20 year old Nissan....

 I really doubt there is any possible way to prevent morons from existing . If indeed such a thing were possible the congressman from AR wouldnt exist

Breaking news!: Republicans don't care about dead Americans if there is no political gain from said deaths. They'd happily dismantle our national security systems if it meant making Obama look bad.

FlashHarry: do these assholes seriously think that we'll forget about 9/11?

So today he's weakbama on terrorists and tomorrow it will be dronebama and how ruthless he is to poor old terrorists.

Lets ask Osama Bin Laden and Muammar al-Gaddafi what they think about that.

There will be a lot of sandy vags in butt hurt sauce over the fact that President Obama got the guys that they couldnt, and stole thier "National Security" crown.

All the things that Republicans have run on in the past as their strengths have now become their weaknesses.

firefly212: They love guns, not liberty... these are people who want the FBI to wiretap places of worship of religions they don't like, who want no due process for people of religions they don't care for, who think the government should regulate which sacraments you can take part in, and who believe in "you get what you can pay for" in terms of childhood education and food for needy kids. They hate the constitution, they hate freedom, what they want is tyranny... they just want to be the tyrants.


Republicans hate us for our freedoms.

They seem to come from the same stock that blame Clinton for the 1992 Ruby Ridge shootings.

Why doesn't shoe bomber  count on Bush's list if the underwear bomber count's on Obama's?

And why is he just focusing on jihadists terrorism?  What about the anthrax attacks that occurred shortly after?  The letters appeared to be jihadist, but maybe the guy was just crazy.  Or maybe we never figured out who really did it.

tenpoundsofcheese: well, they were fighting us, but after they bombed the WTC the first time, the President at the time thought it was not worth doing much about


I guess launching a shiatload of missiles into Afghanistan instead of getting into a land war in Asia falls under the category of "not doing much."

Yes please: FlashHarry: do these assholes seriously think that we'll forget about 9/11?

No, the assholes are those who point back to 9/11 and say "But at least it wasn't as bad as THAT."


Right, not too long ago we had Rand Paul calling Benghazi the "worst tragedy since 9/11".

After that school massacre, no less, if I recall.

we weren't at war with the terrorists before 9/11.
(well, they were fighting us, but after they bombed the WTC the first time, the President at the time thought it was not worth doing much about).

or did subby miss that?

oh, and when the guy killed those people at Fort Hood it was just a little bit of "workplace violence"
