Obama made right decision in securing release of POW



Published: Sat, June 7, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

2With that clear statement, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, addressed one of the overriding issues surrounding the release of Bergdahl by the Taliban.

But, the general’s statement has not, and will not, appease President Barack Obama’s critics who contend he gave up too much to bring the American soldier home.

The U.S. handed over five high-level militants detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the government of Qatar. The militants are prohibited from traveling outside Qatar for a year.

But Republicans, in particular, contend that the details surrounding Bergdahl’s separation from his unit in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan suggest that this country paid too high a price.

Indeed, former members of the unit have been vocal in their criticism of the Hailey, Idaho, resident, saying he walked away because he was disillusioned with the war and, thus, abandoned his colleagues and the Army. They also contend that he jeopardized the lives of other soldiers who went searching for him in enemy territory.

Though Bergdahl’s former colleagues have legitimate concerns, members of Congress and others who have pounced on the president are doing so for political gain.

What if Obama had decided not to make the deal and Bergdahl had died in captivity? These same critics would now be accusing him of not understanding his role as the commander in chief and not appreciating the ethos of the military that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Dempsey, talked about.

Whatever the circumstances of Bergdahl’s separation from his unit, the fact remains that he was a prisoner of war and, therefore, was the responsibility of this nation.

That said, there are other issues surrounding the return of the sergeant the administration must address, foremost of which is the failure of the White House to notify Congress of the release of captives from Guantanamo.

60-day notice

The law requires a 60-day notice, but administration officials contend there wasn’t time because concerns about Bergdahl’s health and the sensitivity of the negotiations required quick action.

Congressional hearings are underway, and while Republicans and Democrats have taken the White House to task for not following the law, lawmakers have an obligation to avoid turning the proceedings into a political circus.

There are important constitutional and ethical questions that must be addressed — which will require members of Congress to demonstrate a level of thoughtful deliberation that has been sorely lacking on Capitol Hill.

The other issue that must be addressed has to do with Bergdahl’s duty as a soldier.

Gen. Dempsey has said the Army could still charge Bergdahl with desertion and other violations of his sworn oath as a soldier after an investigation is conducted.

Members of Congress should take care not to impede or undermine the Army’s investigation.

The Vindicator should be ashamed. Every time the republicans try to hold President Obama accountable for his actions or lack of action, the media shows its bias and tries to shield this guy from any criticism. How many scandals or dubious events can this guy manufacture before the media does their job?

Hey boys, EVERYTHING Obama does is an impeachable offense when you, yourselves, are lunatics incapable of rational thought. "Bergdahl" is the new "Benghazi". Or is he the new "IRS Scandal"? Or is he the new Affordable Care Act? Or is he the new "birth certificate" conspiracy theory?
The funny thing is that all of the nutcases who posted above me were excoriating Obama for NOT getting Bergdahl's release on Twitter just a month ago. Thousands upon thousands of Obama haters wanted Obama impeached for NOT getting Bergdahl freed. Now that Bergdahl is freed, they want Obama impeached for freing him.
Here's the funny thing; Obama has the Taliban hiding in caves because he has dropped so many drones on their behinds. When Mullah Omar hears a dragonfly buzzing he wets his pants. Remind me, wasn't it Obama who got Osama Bin Laden after Bush tried and failed for 7 years? Yet you crazies accuse Obama of helping his Muslim buddies, even though he is Christian, which you nuts espouse to be but are anything but.
Some more: The Army thought so much of Bergdahl, they raised his rank from private to sargeant when he was in captivity. The person you loons call a traitor, even though you don't have a clue as to what happened, except the manufactured story from Fox News and the madmen in the right-wing blogosphere.
Some more: You RepubliKKKan nuts seem to think those five Taliban dead-enders are superheroes out of Marvel comics. Oh my, they are going to harm us now that they're out!!! Those five are going to tip the scale to the terrorists!! LOL!!! Those bums will be hiding in caves right along with Mullah Omar. Just more right-wing nonsense to fan the flames.
Some more: What would the indignation from the right have been if Obama was the President instead of Bush when 9/11 occurred, IN THIS COUNTRY, KILLING THOUSANDS, AND WE HAD FOREWARNING THAT WE IGNORED? Would you lunatics have dragged Obama into the streets?
What the reaction to Bergdahl from the RepubliKKKan rabble demonstrates is that within every nation, there is a faction of madmen who would do the most heinous acts if given the power to do so. It shows how a country like Germany in the 1930's could change from a nation into rabid mob. Bergdahl is the example historians will cite that the American right-wing in 2014 had descended into madness.
But, just like "Benghazi", Obama's citizenship, The "IRS non-scandal", The Affordable Care Act and whatever comes next that will have you jackals howling at the moon for Obama's impeachment, Obama will go merrily along, laughing all the way at you right-wingnuts as he lines you up like Russians at a bakery and sinks you like a 3 foot putt. Obama beat the RepubliKKKans like a rented mule. Intellect wins every time. Go and howl at the moon, jackals, it won't do you a bit of good. Obama isn't going anywhere. LOL!!!!

"What none of these media is reporting is that the father's (SGT Bowe Bergdahl's father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic -- those words were "bism allah alrahman alraheem" -- which means "in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful" -- these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur'an except one (the chapter of the sword -- the 9th) -- by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam.

Obama brought home a deserter. That's what someone is called when they walk away voluntarily from their assigned post and greet the Taliban with open arms. Unemployment down?? That's a laugh not only is it not down but show me where the jobs are.
Made Cantor go away? Hardly. People fed up with Cantor accepting illegal immigrants into the country and not doing what he was elected to do was the cause of his departure. BTW, when Obama traded 5 top Taliban leaders in exchange for this screw up, what do you think the first thing they want to do? Kill Americans. So Obama put the United States in an even greater danger by making his weekly "kingly" decree. Now if the voters get it together, we should be looking at the last of a Democratic President for quite awhile. If Illegal Immigrants and minorities are allowed to vote 8 times for a single candidate instead of one time like normal people, the shift may go the other way.

Just wondering...when GW Bush was in office, gas prices were kept high so that his oil buddies and Cheney's Halliburton could reap massive profits. But, with Obama, he gets off without any criticism. With Bush, we received a body count tally every night on the evening news. Obama gets elected and no more body count. Yet three times as many Americans have dies in Afghanistan under Obama than under Bush and in less time. No mention. Now, we have city after city in Iraq falling back into radical hands that Americans died to liberate and there is no criticism. More documents get released by the Obama crew about Benghazi but it is a scandal invented by Fox News. Obama is merely a puppet - a community organizer steering us in the wrong direction.

Cantor's loss in Virginia is a sign that Americans are pissed off about the direction their country is heading and they want the brakes applied. Every Congressman should be worried...except for little Timmy Ryan. His voters would vote for Manson if he had a "D" tattooed on his forehead.

America is a better place and a safer place under Obama.
The US is out of Iraq and no longer throwing away US lives and Two Trillion dollars a year.

The US has not suffered any terrorist attacks on U.S. Soil under Obama.

The economy is much better than when he entered office.
Unemployment is down to pre-recession levels and the stock market is at record high levels.
8 Million more Americans now have health insurance which is also lowering health cares impact on the US GDP.

Looks like things are much improved since Bush Jr. left office.

Goes to show that the people got it right by re-electing Obama with a majority of the vote for a second term!!

Oh yeah, great to see the US auto industry doing well, GM sold a more cars last month than in any month in the previous six years!!!

The Republican Party HATES women, gays, lesbians, Latinos, African-Americans, organized labor and basically is seeing itself self destruct as their base is smaller than at anytime in history. Turn on THE FIXED NOISE CHANNEL if you don't believe me, they'll tell you how to live your life.

Island Mike...BRAVO!! Great comments. Rational comments. Logical comments. Comments that the RepubliKKKan jackals on this page couldn't comprehend if they went to Harvard for 100 years. The ignorant poster-children of the RepubliKKKan Party in 2014.
Bergdahl comes home Friday. Home to the land of the lunatic right. The reaction from the right to a P.O.W.'s return will go down as one of the most shameful moments in American history.

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is."

"Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance..."

"By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community."

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” Amen, brother, amen.

The "illusion of knowledge" is abundant demonstrated on this page with the likes of Steivo, Cheesiedad, Walter-Sobchak, HandymanDave, Knightcap, Chief178, 76Ytown, Borylie and Newsmaker1.

And GTX66, although I side with you, I think everyone knows that no matter what laws he breaks, Hussein would never be impeached because such action would be attributed to "racism" and there would be riots in the streets. And please, dontbeafool, you better re-think your posting name, because if you don't believe for one second that the only reason Hussein went after O.B.L. when he did was to take a huge "victory lap" right before he election, then you are "beingafool". Also you must have missed the interview Hussein gave to George Stephanopoulos in September 2008 where Hussein commented on his "muslim" faith and he had to be corrected by Stephanopoulos to say he meant his "Christian" faith. If that's not the ultimate "Freudian slip", I don't know what is! So think what you want, but I've always relied on the old adage that "if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, releases the Taliban Dream Team jihadists...." I'll let you finish the rest....

ANd, let's not forget Barack Hussein Obama's comments that the Dream Kids are the hope for the future of America because they are as American as apple pie! That's because the AMERICAN kids are the children of the oppressors, the white children of privilege and Europe. Now, he signals the border is open and children are pouring across the border from Central and South America. Congrats, BHO is the first president since WWII to have internment camps! With highly trained border agents changing diapers...or separating teenagers from intercourse since there is no better way to get a foot-hold on US soil than having a child here. Maybe BHO can offer 500 kids to Mexico for one retired Marine that took a wrong turn and ended up in jail.

Now, BHO fails to get a troop status agreement in Iraq and the country is falling apart. Look at a map, see the forces coming from Syria into northern Iraq and they will soon combine with Iranian forces to move south. Everything that was fought for and won by US troops is falling back into enemy hands and ex-soldiers are asking why. Yes, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it will most certainly release five commanders for one deserter.

WASHINGTON—Looking back on his 13-year tenure in the House of Representatives with reverence, resigning House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) reflected on the long list of accomplishments he had thwarted during his time in office, sources confirmed Thursday. “From obstructing a jobs bill to put Americans back to work in 2011, to derailing gun control measures any time they reached my desk, I feel blessed to have had such an incredible run of preventing productive policies, and even a few pieces of landmark legislation, from ever passing,” said Cantor, explaining that as a young man, he “never would have dreamed” that some day he would be in a position to hinder the entire American lawmaking process and completely neuter dozens of bills. “Of course, I’m disappointed because I thought I had many more years of impeding accomplishments ahead of me, and I’ll be the first to admit that I never quite managed to stall environmental policies as much as I would have liked. But at the end of the day, I’m very proud of how I helped Congress accomplish so little during my time in office.” Cantor added that he took solace that his legacy of hampering federal policy was secure, and trusted that “many, many more” in his party would be inspired to follow in his footsteps.

One last thought, Chessiedad, et al, one of the great things about the digital age is that a person can go to the comment section of virtually any newspaper in the world and see the totally opposite views expressed over just about any issue. That is instructive and explains things like what occurred back in 1930's and 1940's Germany.

You see, examining the opinions on this page, over the release of a P.O.W., it should be obvious that one of us is crazy. We both think it's the other person. But for sure, one of us is crazy. That does not speak well of our species. It does not give hope that things will change much for the future. It explains why, as a species, we keep repeating the same mistakes, like wars. You see, one of us is crazy. The good thing, for the observant, is that the digital age allows us to see what used to be hidden.

You see, Chessiedad, one of us is crazy.

To follow up on "one of us is crazy" how abut this Gallup Poll:

According to a Gallup poll released last week, 42% of Americans believe in Creationism. More than four in 10 Americans continue to believe that God created humans in their present form 10,000 years ago, a view that has changed little over the past three decades.

Those with less education are most likely to espouse the creationist view and to be least familiar with evolution, but it's not clear that gaining more education per se would shift their perspectives.

Do you loons know why??? Because they are "right-trash" RepubliKKKans, who are simply-put, CRAZY. They also believe that Bergdahl is a traitor, Obama is a Muslim terrorist sympathizer, that the tragedy in Bengahzi is a greater tragedy than 9/11 and that Obama will go down as the worst President in history. Up is down to lunatics.

As Gallup pointed out in a report issued last Wednesday, nearly a third of Americans continue to believe that the Bible “is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word.”

More evidence that the folks who make up the RepubliKKKan Party 2014, exactly as those on this page demonstrate with their nonsensical arguments, live in a fantasy world that only the mentally deficient can occupy.

Yes, the truth is that one of us is crazy in how we view reality.

Wow, parlayhenry, talk about exposing oneself, or as you put it, being " naked to the world"! At least you've made it abundantly clear to myself and the other posters, here, who we are dealing with....an aethiest who despises the principals and morals that this once great Country was founded on. But I don't deny you your beliefs or opinions, and I would give my life to defend your right to have and express them, as did my father, grandfather, great-grandfather, aunts and uncles. I gather from your writings that you would not be so inclined, but again, that is your prerogative and I bear you no ill-will, for that.

So call me "crazy" for having been brought up to believe in God and Country, first, and to believe that the U.S.A. was the greatest Country in the world, and we owe no one an apology for that, quite unlike your leader, Hussein. Oh, and by the way, it seems I have struck a nerve with you, by my referencing the given middle name of Barack HUSSEIN Obama. Now why would that be so? I have a middle name, and would think nothing of it, if someone called me by it. But again, I must agree with you, that word is revealing, and Hussein has lived up to it.

Lastly, I will admit that we don't have all of the facts in, about Bergdahl, and with this administration I strongly doubt we ever will, but one thing is certain, he abandoned his post and at face value, that is either A,W.O.L., or desertion, both offenses under the Military Code, so as far as I'm concerned, his "boots" don't deserve polishing.

So, parlayhenry, feel free to continue to spew your "Saul Alinsky" style rhetoric, and puff your chest out with your "intellectual prowess", I'll stand with my patriotic brothers and sisters "et al" here and hope that someday we can return this Country to it's greatness it deserves.

I will repeat what I told Chief178, of this I am certain, that no matter what happened in Afghanistan with Bergadhl's capture, I know that in the eyes of God, Bergdahl is a better person than any of the racist, right-wing, yahoos on this page who fling mud at him with absolutely NO KNOWLEDGE of what happened. You hate Obama, so you denigrate this soldier. Had Bergdahl been beheaded in captivity, you RepubliKKKan lunatics would have be howling to impeach Obama because he didn't save Bergdahl.

OMG!!! My sides hurt!!!! Chessiedad, your reply is the best!!! Perfect!!! You hit it over the fence!!!! A true right-wing reply!!!

By the way, when you and your patriotic brothers get together and discuss returning "this country to its greatness it deserves", what era in American History are you looking to return to?? Was it when we killed the Native Indians and took their land? Was it the days of the plantation when we enslaved fellow humans? Or was it when women couldn't vote? Or was it the years of lynching black men in front of crowds? Or segregation? Or interning the Japanese in prison camps? Or the communist witch-hunts of Uncle Joe McCarthy? Or when homosexuals were persecuted? Or when the KKK and John Birchers were strong? Or was it when Tim McVeigh, an anti-government icon to you right-wingers, bombed the Murah Building in Oklahoma City killing women and babies. Or was it just a year or so ago when those babies were gunned down with your beloved AR-15 in Newton?

Also, I might ask you and your patriot friends, when did it become patriotic in America to denigrate the President? You love America and its "values". Well, democratic elections are the bedrock on which the country was founded. WE vote and majority rules. As patriotic Americans was shake hands and get behind our leader.

Chessiedad, you know why I comment here?? It isn't to convince you and your ilk of anything. It has two purposes; to see if I can lure you nuts out and take a topic to #1 on the Vindy hit parade.

"Was it when we killed the Native Indians and took their land?"

While I am sure there were atrocities by both settlers and Native Indians, this country was a vast wilderness owned by nobody similar to the moon. No country owns the moon right now, nor should they claim ownership.

" Was it the days of the plantation when we enslaved fellow humans?"
I think it is physically impossible for you to make even one post without playing the race card.

"Or was it the years of lynching black men in front of crowds?"

Race Card II

"Or segregation?"

Race Card III

"Or interning the Japanese in prison camps?"

You mean after they bomber Pearl Harbor?

" Or the communist witch-hunts of Uncle Joe McCarthy?"

I would prefer the witch hunts of Joe McCarthy over the witch hunts we have today of the Tea Party by the Liar's IRS.

"Or when homosexuals were persecuted?"

Homosexuals have never been persecuted anymore than hetrosexuals have been persecuted.

"Or when the KKK and John Birchers were strong?"

Race Card IV.

" Or was it when Tim McVeigh, an anti-government icon to you right-wingers, bombed the Murah Building in Oklahoma City killing women and babies."

Not only was McVeigh not a right wing icon, nobody had even ever heard of him prior to the incident any more than anyone had ever heard of left winger Ted Kaszinski prior to his capture.

"Or was it just a year or so ago when those babies were gunned down with your beloved AR-15 in Newton?"

How about all the babies that have been murdered since Roe v. Wade.

Once again, parlayhenry, your ultra-liberal views are noted and given consideration. And as a result of that consideration, one can conclude that you would have preferred that America had never been colonized. That way, the Native Indians would never have been disturbed, slaves would have never been sold and brought here, eventually freed and then face segregation and we would have never witnessed the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King, the Japanese would never have bombed Pearl Harbor, and Joe McCarthy would not have worried about the Communist threat because he more than likely would have been forced to become one, as we all probably would have been if we never came to America.

And, as for denigrating the current person occupying the Oval Office, I would assume, once again, that you take exception to the reference to his given, lawful middle name. Again I ask, why would that trouble you? Apparently his parents felt strongly enough about their muslim beliefs so as to bestow that name to their son. Could that connotation disturb you, and if so, please explain to myself and the other posters, why?

Yes, I disagree with the liberal ideologies, put forth by parlayhenry, IslandMike and others here, but I read and give consideration to them, they are just contrary to my beliefs. I don't hold them in contempt or feel that I should insult the bearers of those thoughts, but I do believe that I have a right to my own beliefs and opinions and the right to express them, without fear of being "monitored" by the government, because of them.

"National Sorry Day is an Australia-wide observance held on May 26 each year. This day gives people the chance to come together and share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities. Stolen generations refer to Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities."

What chance would there be that you, "patriotic Americans", that you are would agree to a "National Sorry Day in America?"; to apologize for what we did to the Indians and how we enslaved blacks? I would think that you "patriots" would be writing your congressman first thing to initiate National Sorry Day in America. After all, with this being a "Christian Country", "In God We Trust", and all that, it would be the least a good "Christian" would do, to say, "I'm sorry".

WASHINGTON — American commandos operating under the cover of night seized the man suspected of leading the deadly attack on the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya, the government announced on Tuesday, ending a manhunt that had dragged on for nearly two years and inflamed domestic and international politics.

Well, well. All you "BENGHAZI" howlers out there screaming, "cover-up!!!"...I guess Barry ain't worried. He goes about his business and gets these terrorists.

lajoci...the below information was copied from the website "myarmybenefits.com". Your questions should be answered, there.

Promotions: MIA personnel continue to be considered for promotion along with their contemporaries. Policy provides for each missing or captured officer/enlisted member to be considered for promotion to the next higher grade when they are eligible. The eligibility for officers is based on the date of rank in their current grade. For enlisted members, eligibility is based on time in grade and time in service.

Furthermore, the Army currently has a program in place for soldiers to be "automatically" promoted to the rank of Sergeant, once they reach the required amount of active service time, due to a shortage of ranking Sergeants. So that's why Bergdahl was promoted during his absence, not because he was thought to be extraordinary or "special".

Also, I wish everyone would look up the Military's definition of P.O.W., and you will find that Bergdahl cannot be considered a P.O.W. but at best, he was M.I.A., and I'd bet my "bottom dollar" if we ever get the true facts (which is highly unlikely from this administration) about his disappearance he will be deemed to have been A.W.O.L. and stripped of his stripes.

But let's get back to this "accidental terrorist" Hussein so miraculously captured a few days ago. I distinctly remember Hussein deeming him a "terrorist" after his "spontaneous demonstration" story got "shot full of holes" (no pun intended!). So, that being the case, since we are engaged in a "war on terrorism" he's an "enemy combatant" and should be sent to Guantanamo for imprisonment and interrogation. But nooooo....we're bringing him here, where once he hits U.S, soil he's afforded all of the rights any of us citizens are guaranteed. This cat will "lawyer-up" quicker than you can say"Miranda" and there goes any chance at getting any useful intel out of him. But now that I think about it, maybe it's a good thing he's not going to Guantanamo, 'cause Hussein would probably just trade him for a pizza or a new set of clubs.

The good news about the IRS scandal is that it absolutely insures that no Republican President will ever again be impeached. This harkens back to the days of Nixon and the missing 22 minutes of tape. Nixon was impeached for it. Now, the e-mails go missing and before Congress knew about the missing e-mails, the hard drives were destroyed. Since the Liar is not being impeached, then no Republican will ever again breaks ranks regardless of how obvious the evidence against him. Kim Jong Un is now running the U.S.

If I was a member of any branch of our Military, or any Federal Law Enforcement agency, I would be livid about the fact that Hussein was so willing to throw them "under the bus" by inferring that the media is more competent in going "face to face" with terrorists, due to a "range of factors". The fact of the matter is, Hussein knew where this scumbag was, from "day one", but held back putting the grabs on him, knowing that when another one of his many scandals or incompetence was "blowing up in his face", he could get some "good ink" by apprehending him at just the right moment. And when that became so painfully obvious, well shoot, let's just lay blame on our Military and L.E. for the "delay" in his capture. Just goes to show you the type of respect Hussein has for our heros in the Military and L.E. Kinda makes you wonder who the real "scumbag" is, here.

Not the same for the Fed's? I find that pretty hard to believe! So what's it gonna be, Hussein? Criminal conspiracy "cover-up" or just unbelievable incompetence?

Funny how this story isn't making the "headlines" page, here in the "Vindy" or most of the other " mainstream media" outlets.

"POLL SHOWS OBAMA HITS NEW LOW ON FOREIGN POLICY
What’s the cause of President Obama’s sudden urgency on foreign policy? Perhaps because he has a serious problem with the American electorate. In the wake of the Veterans Affairs scandal, the release of five Islamist leaders from a U.S. prison and the sectarian slaughter in Iraq, Obama’s poll numbers are a disaster. Public approval of Obama’s handling of foreign policy fell again in the WSJ/NBC News poll, sliding to a new all-time low of just 37 percent."

If we ever get the "facts" about Bergdahls disappearance (and I highly doubt we ever will), it may reveal that he didn't desert, but at this point, I certainly believe, as anyone of normal and common sensibility would, that he was A.W.O.L. He wasn't captured in a hostile action or lagged behind on a combat patrol and got lost, he packed up his gear and sent it home and then walked away from his duty assignment. So knowing those basic facts, how Hussein could describe him as serving with "honor and distinction" is ludicrous. And then to add " insult to injury" by having a "Rose Garden Gala" where Bergdahls father is praising "allah", while Hussein stands by smiling like a "kid in a candy store" is an affront to every Serviceman's family and loved ones, especially to those who have paid the "Ultimate Sacrifice" while actually serving with "Honor and Distinction". Where are their Rose Garden ceremonies?

While the economy's woes have been largely blamed on an unusually cold winter, the magnitude of the revisions suggest other factors at play beyond the weather. Growth has now been revised down by a total of 3.0 percentage points since the government's first estimate was published in April, which had the economy expanding at a 0.1 percent rate.

The difference between the second and third estimates was the largest on records going back to 1976, the Commerce Department said."

The only way to turn around our economy around, is to insure that the Dems lose both houses, this November. Then, based on the laws he's broken and the multitude of scandals that are eventually going to lead directly back to him, Husseins either going to have to resign or face impeachment and then all of his detrimental laws he has passed need to be repealed. But, in reality, as soon as that process would actually be considered, the "race-baiters" would scream "bloody murder", and this Country would be thrown into chaos, with riots in the streets. Hussein knows that, and he uses his "color" to hide behind, confident that he can do what he wants, without consequence. So, this Country is "screwed" until we have someone in Office, who, when the "chips are down", isn't willing to play the race card. And, before the "racist" accusations start to fly, let it be known that, in my opinion, two of the most honorable and competent men that could hold the Office of President of the U.S.A. are Col.

Steivo, you are taking notes from the spin doctors I see. Nowhere did I blame Bush for anything, nor did I mention Bush or global warming. You can look at my past comments. I have always stated that I did not believe in polls and find them to be highly inaccurate. They can also be easily skewed. But you on the other hand won't even read an article that is given to support someone's argument, because it is from a source like MSNBC. Now you want to use them.

It asked the question, "what is your gender?" The answer was 73% male, and 27% female. WOW. I guess that means that 73% of the US population is male. What a dispairity in the ratio of men to women. Wait. This must be Obama's War on Women!!! Polls are great.

RIGHT! The globe is cooling!

Everybody knows that's why the polar ice-caps are melting, and the seas are rising, and coastal population centers are threatened and weather extremes are the new normal!

Makes sense!

The polar ice-caps are made of, well, ice, and as the globe cools, this causes the ice to melt due to a little known law of physics called the Obama Effect, according to which any whack-a-doodle notion, such as ice melting at decreasing temperatures, becomes accepted science, as long as it contradicts President Obama.

For example, the burning of fossil fuels is actually healthy, in that the increase in the rate of skin cancer due to the depletion of the ozone is a job creator, since we'll need more dermatologists, skin graft specialists, and sun-block.

The polar ice-caps are not melting, and in fact they are increasing. The seas are not rising and no coastal communities are threatened. In fact there has been no change in the temperature of the globe for the past 15 years and it has decreased over the last 12 years.

"As you are well aware there is a huge effort around the globe to counter the alleged impact of mankind on the world's climate. If in fact mankind will cause the seas to rise appreciably by causing CO2 induced global warming then certainly let's do something about it. But, what if global warming is not what they say it is? What if the world's temperature is headed in the opposite direction? Global temperatures increased for twenty years from the late 1970s to the late 1990s but have either stopped warming or have begun to cool in the last seventeen years. The global warming and subsequent cooling were even predictable due to hundreds of years of historical trends and observation of the impact of variations in solar activity and ocean cycles on global temperatures.

Did you know that in the past the Roman Period and Medieval Period were both several degrees warmer than today's temperature. The world then cooled at least four degrees from approx. 1450 to 1850. This period was called the Little Ice Age (a period of glacial advance, the same glaciers that have been in retreat until recently). These temperature variations were not caused by man. They were caused entirely by natural forces."

Maybe you should actually LEARN the difference between sea ice and glaciers.

Of course, you won't find the distinction on fossil fuel industry-funded websites bought and paid for by the coal, oil, and gas companies.

You will find junk science that starts with the premise that whatever "science" promotes the fossil fuel industry is, ipso facto, good.

Again, read the actual NASA report.

The "Ice Extent" is melting from underneath. Don't take my word for it.. read the material

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php...

For example, "A new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, finds a rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to be in an irreversible state of decline, with nothing to stop the glaciers in this area from melting into the sea.

The study presents multiple lines of evidence, incorporating 40 years of observations that indicate the glaciers in the Amundsen Sea sector of West Antarctica "have passed the point of no return," according to glaciologist and lead author Eric Rignot, of UC Irvine and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The new study has been accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

These glaciers already contribute significantly to sea level rise, releasing almost as much ice into the ocean annually as the entire Greenland Ice Sheet. They contain enough ice to raise global sea level by 4 feet (1.2 meters) and are melting faster than most scientists had expected. Rignot said these findings will require an upward revision to current predictions of sea level rise."

. . . and so on.

But it's only NASA and the JPL -- their scientists are probably not aware of the dreaded Obama Effect, which explains the tendency of polar glacial ice to melt as the globe's temperature drops.

In other words, polar glacial ice is melting because the earth is cooling.

Makes sense to you, right?

The Obama Effect explains many crazy, right-wingnut fantasies such as this by simply asserting the opposite of whatever President Obama thinks.

Then there are those pesky NASA scientists who get paid to predict global warming.

You know NASA? Stands for Not About Science At all.

Or Not Anything Science Asserts.

What d'they know, anyway, right?

(Psssssst! Reminder -- find out the difference between sea ice and glacial ice. If you are interested in truly understanding. If not, well then Obama says up, it must be down; Obama says here, it must be there; Obama says day, it must be night. Obama Effect -- iron-clad law.)

And the present Native American tribes actually turned down billions of dollars in repatriation for the lands that were taken from them, wanting the land, instead, because they realized the value of building and operating "tax exempt" casinos on the lands they already have. So, all in all, "global warming" and all of the other "bad things" Hussein and his cronies are claiming America has done, and is doing, are all part and parcel of the "Saul Alinsky" playbook in creating a "socialist society" and doing away with the true American values we have held so dear.

Great.

Like the little boy in the crowd, you have the courage of your convictions.

But science is not about "the courage of your convictions." It is about having the courage to alter your convictions in the face of evidence.

That's the problem.

The deniers start with a premise, or conviction, and then search for evidence to back it up. Anything that contradicts their a priori notions is discarded, explained away, rejected.

Science doesn't work that way. It is constantly self-questioning, seeking to know. It is opened-ended, unlike the closed bubble of junk science.

It makes you wonder, with everything mankind does NOT know, why scientists would even tackle the fossil-fuel industry. They must know that coal, gas, and oil, companies are highly profitable; they provide jobs for hundreds of thousands of people who rely on those jobs for their livelihood; these industries are thoroughly ingrained in our physical infrastructure, in our legal and political systems, and, in some cases, in our very culture itself.

In addition to being thoroughly capable of defending themselves, fossil-fuel industries enjoy almost insurmountable public support.

You could almost call attacking fossil-fuel industries, whatever the preponderance of data, a Herculean task, a Sisyphean task.

Surely there are plenty of other questions to deal with, plenty mankind does not know, plenty to give these scientists important work to do.

We have the problem of world hunger to deal with; there are diseases like cancer, and heart disease and diabetes and dozens of others that great minds could be working on. Scientists don't need to make work for themselves; they don't need the issue of climate change to "make their reputations."

Any one of dozens of scientific questions could make their reputations.

And yet the right-wingnuts would have us believe, in all their cynicism, that climate scientists are out to get fossil-fuels because that would put a big old feather in their cap.

So scientists study the issue and gather data and formulate their theses, and the "right" says they're all wrong, and they're all liars, and the emperor has no clothes, because all the right-wingnuts are like the little boy in the crowd, sensible, honest, uncorrupted, and shielded by the courage of their convictions.

But the slogans won't cut childhood asthma rates, or stop the oceans from warming or the glacial ice from melting, or repair the ozone, or mitigate extremes of weather events.

I wondered, was Dinesh referring to the siege of Fort Pitt, in 1763, when the British Army under Lord Jeffrey Amherst infected the besieging Native Americans with smallpox using blankets that had been exposed to the virus, killing much of their population for many years, even after the war ended?

Amherst's letters make clear his intention to wipe out the native population, so the Europeans' complicity in genocide is well established, whatever the method.

You are right, I will never ever watch MSNBC or CNN because they are too biased. However MSNBC does have a web-site that I check in on routinely. This is where I found the results of the poll. I have no idea if Fox covered it on TV, but I assume they did as they had it on their web-site.

that is your right to have the same opinion as the poll results, nothing wrong with that, as long as you realize that the poll itself is nonsense.

CNN/Quinnipiac/ABC/FOX NEWS Poll:
100 percent of the people aren't crying about Kasick, I don't choose to care about him. The Neo-Cons have cried about EVERYTHING Obama has done. He talked to school children and they CRIED, he took troops out of Iraq and they cried, he left troops in Afghanistan and they cried, he killed Bin Laden and they cried, he passed The Affordable Care act (RomneyCare) insuring 8 million more people and they cried. He saved GM and they cried, he has turned the economy around and they're still crying.
They talk about Benghazi as if Obama invaded it himself. Kind of like when we invaded Iraq looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction. We lost FOUR Americans in Iraq compared to over FOUR THOUSAND in Iraq. There have been ZERO terrorist attacks on U.S. Soil since Obama was elected, unlike the biggest intelligence failure in U.S. history under Bush on 9/11.
John Boehner needs a tissue.

Here's one thing I can say is in Husseins favor; during his tenure as a lawyer (although he wouldn't know the inside of a courtroom from the men's room at a Howard Johnson's), he never defended a child rapist, traumatized the victim during the proceedings, won an acquittal, and then bragged and laughed about it, like Hillaryious did! And the mainstream media practically has her elected before she has even declared herself a candidate! I don't know, gang, the more I learn about this woman, if she runs and makes it, I might find myself wishing for a "three-pete" by Hussein!

I love the way the Neo-Commies are pretending to take a "tough" stance on immigration now that it cost Cantor his office.
You could solve the immigration issue in 5 minutes by arresting, fining and taking away the business license of the person and company hiring them. Problem solved!! The way the GAME is played now, Immigration Officers conduct a sweep of a business, roundup a hundred or so illegals, house them and feed them, give them a hearing and then deport them. The business that was raided simply replaces them with more illegals the very next day. It is the Neo-Commies who want them here to drive down wages and bust unions, the Dumbocrats want them here because if they can get them legal they know they'll vote Dumbocrat.

How on earth would that do any good. The illegals would not work for fear of deportation, the company would go out of business due to lack of labor and its remaining employees would be unemployed, the freeloaders would continue to sit at home and collect and then they would be joined by the unemployed illegals too.

Maybe the illegals wouldn't come if they knew they couldn't find work.

"A Zogby Analytics Poll released Wednesday also found Mr. Obama slipping — in that survey, to 44 percent approval, while his disapproval jumped 4 percentage points from last month to reach 54 percent."
--
That Zogby poll is no good either. The poll was probably conducted by Fox News and the Liar's low poll numbers are due to George Bush. This proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that global warming is causing people to vote NO.

are we really going to the lame polls again? I thought you learned your lesson last week? This poll was even worse than last weeks. They polled 1100 people in the country. The only polls that matter is the ELECTION POLLS. It proves my point that if you are naive about believing all of these polls, there is no wonder why you believe every word from Fox News.

skeevoeivo....The United States of America took a poll in 2008 and Obama got 69,498,516 of 129,446,839 votes or around 9.5 million more than mccain.

The United States of America took another poll in 2012 and Obama got 65,915,796 of the 126,849,296 votes or around 5 million more than romney.

That's why Obama is "The President of the United States of America". If another presidential election were held today he would win again because the teabagger/republicans have no one who could beat him.

You lost big time both times, get over it.

@IslandMike
It was cold last winter,and it will probably be cold this winter. So global warming doesn't exist. Plus, Dick Cheney made it very clear that the evidence was false. This is all the LIAR'S "War on Coal" campaign.

231IslandMike(752 comments)posted 2 months ago

Cheney is The Liar. If I recall, it was Dick who got us into Iraq when he and his puppet Dubya, who quoted the term, "Weapons of Mass Destruction." Over 4,000 U.S. lives were lost over the LIE. Oh yeah EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS are also unaccounted for. If Dick says Global warming is Fiction, then you can bet it's FACT.

Well, it was cold last winter and the winter before that, and now that we are talking about it has been getting colder for the past 12 years. That doesn't fit the narrative of the tree huggers, but no matter how well dressed, the emperor just isn't wearing any clothes.

I like the decision Obama made to save the U.S. economy.
I like the decisions he's made that lowered unemployment.
I like the decision he made to get us out of Iraq.
I like the decision he made to pass The Affordable Care Act.
I like his decision to kill Bin Laden.
I liked his decision that made Boehner & War Monger McCain CRY.
The MAJORITY of people liked his decision to run for President.
The MAJORITY of people liked his decision to run for re-election.

What I like MOST is his decision to make you gun hugging Neo-Cons cry like little babies EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

Quit talking about Bush & Cheney. Their lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction killed over 4,000 AMERICANS, cost the country over 8 TRILLION DOLLARS all while allowing a record number of illegals enter the country. They accounted for the largest intelligence FAILURE in U.S. history on 9/11. They turned Hurricane Katrina's recovery into a train wreck. Oh, but they did start Operation Fast & Furious. After 7 years they killed the U.S. Economy, led to the biggest foreclosure meltdown ever. I hope Obama legalizes ALL Latinos, the repubs brought them here to break unions and drive down wages, the problem is the Party of Hate can't get their vote.
