What does Biden have to do with this? Why are you so motivated to find a way to blame people who have little, or anything, to do with this?

It's just fun to imagine what important Administration duties the President of Vice® gets assigned in between stints as the "Blast the Door, then Squeeze a Couple Warning Shots in the Air" White House Gun Safety Czar.

Still this story not hat big yet. if the left wing media would stop patting the FBI on the back people would be a lot more upset over the fact Americans got blown up and they could have stopped it easily. All they had to do was check up on a known terrorist.

All that proves is Bush jr is a decent artist. What is Obama good at? maybe golf? but they never release his scores so who knows. Even Tiger was sworn to secrecy by the king. 30 yrs from now Bush JR immense work wiping out aids in Africa, getting rid of Saddam and starting democracy in the mid east, will be bigger then Obamas failed healthcare that didn't last. Also his stimulus will go down as a waste of govt money. The other day another electric car company and its 100+ million dollar loan garauntee is reported to be going belly up. The list of wasted money now staggering.

I don't know why people on this board keep thinking I'm some kind of Obama supporter. Guess it's a product of binary thinking.

I voted for him (because how could I have voted for Romney) but am extremely critical of a lot of things that have been done. But everyone here seems to think I love him. Derp derp.

This perfectly explains people like cutthemdown when it comes to Bush:

Quote:
If I had to guess, I’d say that Bush’s higher approval mostly comes from people that want to express their disapproval of the current president, and this includes quite a few people who disapproved of Bush while he was in office. One way to do that is to affirm that Bush did a good job. If we look at the results by party identification and ideology, that tells us part of the story. 84% of Republicans and 45% of independents say they approve of how Bush “handled his job as president.” Both figures are much higher than they were in 2008. This reflects the perverse rally effect that causes some people to embrace their disastrous leaders simply because people on the other “side” keep attacking him.

"Disastrous" is an apt choice of words.

Plenty of good friends. Basement dweller? No.

As I said, you are a grown adult who acts like a child online. It is sad and pathetic.

No it's that as we get further from Bush JR you realize he was a pretty good president compared to the crap we have now.

The terror watch list, as it’s known, isn’t really a watch list. For one thing, it isn’t regularly watched. For another, it’s not one list. It’s more of a set of hierarchical, integrated databases which are checked under various circumstances, most notably when individuals want to travel. According to Reuters, after he was interviewed by the FBI in 2011, Tsarnaev was added to the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, or TIDE, which is compiled by the National Counterterrorism Center. It’s a list that comprises over half a million names. “Because of its huge size,” Reuters reports, “U.S. investigators do not routinely monitor everyone registered there, said U.S. officials familiar with the database.”

In other words, there’s a sort of pyramid of terror investigation. At the bottom of the pyramid are hundreds of thousands of people who’ve come to the government’s attention for some reason. As the FBI and other agencies look into behavior and patterns, people can move up the pyramid — fewer people evincing more suspicious behavior — winnowing to a point once held by Osama bin Laden. Or, after a determined time, people can drop out of the pyramid entirely if they don’t behave in a way that raises suspicion. That’s the track Tsarnaev was on.

More than four years after he left office, former President George W. Bush's approval rating now equal President Obama's, according to a new Washington Post/ ABC poll.

^ Well, Beavis, now lets add some perspective and context:

Quote:
Back in 2010, Gallup asked Americans what their retrospective approval rating was for Presidents John F Kennedy through George W Bush. In every instance except for one, the retrospective approval was higher than the final approval was when they left office. Most Republicans, for instance, love to make fun of Jimmy Carter. Carter was the only president of the 20th century to lose re-election after replacing a president of a different party. He left office with a 34% job approval rating. His retrospective job approval rating in the 2010 Gallup poll jumped by 18pt.

Second, Bush’s retrospective approval is the second worst among presidents in the last 50 years ago. To save you doing the math, Carter’s 52% approval rating is higher than Bush’s 47%. Only the Watergate-tainted Richard Nixon recorded a lower retrospective approval than Bush.

I never sucked off Bush, and haven't sucked off Obama either.

You're one of those conservatives with amnesia.
