Very well said, Carrie. The GOP is pathetic and they need to be the minority in all 3 branches of our government !!! Let's work together to make that happen!!!

When you've got nothing worthwhile to bring, when all your recent efforts have focused on turning the clock back, when you don't give a damn, maybe it is better to be absent.
Bunch of fools!

So, I guess the next "sound" we hear will be the Republican party imploding. Now, if only the networks and cable news channels could get it right reporting on it. Talk about a dying dinosaur!

And yet they are already twisting the truth to claim that they were "not invited." How bent is that?

Isn't white supremacy a direction?

Agree. A party that tries every 2 years, for the last few decades, to reinvent themselves from something every one knows they are. Thus, the failure, every 2 years
TY. The new direction? Steal every election possible. Shhhh. don't tell the people. lol

Laugh OUT Loud! You elected a president who has no leadership skills and now wants to pull a political maneuver to "save face" over his incompetent "red line" comment to Syria....and now you all know that Saddam Hussein's WMD's were mobilized and ended up in Syria because they have used the chemical weapons on their own people......and you are criticizing the republicans? Bill Clinton lodged a few missiles into Sudan and that was a joke.

Obama has already weakened the US to the rest of the world. The Brits "stood down." They know Obama is in the middle of extreme embarrassment and yet you support this community organizer.

I still say that history will be very good to George W. Bush. We know where Saddam MOVED the WMD's...to Syria. Sweet!!!

Wow Diane, you're finally admitting Bush and company lied about the WMD's in Iraq! Sweet!!!

How do we know that Saddam Hussein's WMD's were mobilized and ended up in Syria? According to Wikipedia, Syria has been producing its own chemical weapons for many years:

"Syria is one of five states that have not signed and seven that have not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention,[5] which prohibits the development, production, stockpiling, transfer, and use of chemical weapons. However, in 1968, Syria acceded to the 1925 Geneva Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases. In the aftermath of the 2003 invasion of Iraq Syria denied that it had chemical weapons,[6] but admitted it possessed such weapons in 2012.[7] The Syrian president had earlier alluded to a chemical weapon capability in public statements, in 1990 and 1997.[8]

Western non-governmental organizations have stated they believe Syria has an active chemical weapons program.[9][10][11][12] The U.S. has stated that the Syria "has had a chemical warfare program since the mid-1980s", In 1988, a U.S. analyst described Syria's CW capability as more advanced than that of Iraq, however, Israel stated in 1989 that Syria had the "potential for chemical warfare, but not more than that".[8]

Syria reportedly manufactures chemical weapons(CW) agents, including mustard blistering agents, and deadly nerve agents like Sarin, Tabun and VX. A 2007 assessment indicated that Syria is capable of producing several hundred tons of chemical weapon agents per year.[13] Syria is believed of having (CW) stockpile of hundreds of tonnes of CW agents.[14][15] Syrian CW stockpile is believed to be deliverable by aerial bombs, surface-to-surface missiles[15][8] and artillery rockets.[15]"

Experts have even identified the locations of their production facilities:

Syrian chemical weapons production facilities have been identified by Western nonproliferation experts at approximately 5 sites, plus one suspected weapons base:[16]

al-Safira (Scud missile base)
Hama (Scud missile base)
Homs
Latakia
Palmyra
.....................
I was watching the news when former President Bush was being interviewed about the situation in Syria during a golf game earlier this week. He offered two sentences on the subject. One of them was that he was not a fan of Assad and that Assad is capable of mischief.

If history is going to be good to GWB, historians are going to have to look long and hard for any actions or quotations to justify placing him on any kind of pedestal. There are many who believe he's guilty of treason. And with good reason...

They couldn't keep on enduring if the media was open and free. That is one of their biggest direct violations of the Constitution. This is why they made up, the liberal media. There is NO organization know as the liberal media. Think of us as truthers. eta: people that know what a lie looks like.

"Freedom of the press in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This clause is generally understood as prohibiting the government from interfering with the printing and distribution of information or opinions, although freedom of the press, like freedom of speech, is subject to some restrictions, such as defamation law and copyright law."

We have one bRanch of government, in control of 92% of our media!

Jason, all you are doing is speculating.....

The left wing media has been in the tank for Obama since 2007. Now they have to print the truth because there's nowhere to hide anymore.
