9/11 Bush's fault
9/11 scenario being rewritten?  LOL, in your dreams.  We had many warnings about an attack but guess where Bush was??  On vacation.  Well, actually he is on vacation 24/7, if you ask me.  A FIVE WEEK VACATION, OMG!!  This administration failed us with the attack on 9/11.  A captain goes down with his ship.  Bush is the captain of this administration, hence, he takes the blame..Not Clinton, not the democrats, BUSH.  OMG, we were being attacked and where was Bush, reading a childrens book in Florida and then flying around, too afraid to land when we the people are vulnerable for attack.  But, my concern right now is not 9/11.  That has already happened.  My concern is the terrorist country Bush has created with his illegal immoral criminal invasion of Iraq.  Now we have to worry for decades to come due to his and Cheneys actions of invading Iraq.  What really makes me shake my head in disbelief, is that so unbelieveably insane Cheney is still trying to justify this war and link it up to 9/11.  This country is in a sorry state.  Im ashamed, concerned, frightened and disillusioned by America right now..and dont use the republican argument, liberals always blame America first..I blame whomever or whatever is the cause of the problem and right now America has caused this major global terrorist problem, our major deficit with billions going to Iraq monthly, our thousands dead, tens of thousands of Iraqis dead, disrespect throughout the world and a nonending war for the future, not to mention at home outsourcing of jobs, which Bush says is a good thing, gas prices going through the roof, millions going without health insurance..but hey, Bush is a good president, hun?....NOT.  This situation Bush has put us into will haunt us for decades to come..
So then how is that Bush's fault?????
Doesn't make sense.
It's probably Bush's fault! nm
Oh, no. Everything is Bush's fault. I have never
They will probably still say "its Bush's fault".
That the Obamanites will say it's Bush's fault!
I'll hold my "I could have told you so" remarks until later in the year, too. I am HOPING for the best, but have my doubts......I don't think there are *any* politicians any more who are worth their salt. Sad, sad, sad..........
If you think the economy was Bush's fault....
Remember this. In 1933 President Roosevelt regulated the banks to prevent another depression, by limiting what the banks could invest in. The collapse of the banking industry was caused by whom? BUSH? Guess again. The banks were deregulated by Clinton in October of 1999. It just took some time for the bank's bad investments to do them in, just like it would us.
Bush's fault for NO? Get your facts straight..

September 17, 2005

In regard to the Herald editorials and toxic letters to the editor from the hard left blaming President Bush for everything that went wrong in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina:

If the above writers had done a little research they would know that FEMA is not an agency of first responders. It is not the agency responsible for bringing bottled water or fresh food or removing people from harm's way. It does not have law enforcement authority. First responders are the responsibility of local and state government. FEMA is a federal agency providing funds to local government after the problem arises. It helps the locals respond and rebuild. FEMA's Web site states, don't expect them to be there with their aid until three or four days after a disaster strikes.

The National Guard is under the command of each state's governor not the president. The president can federalize control of a state's guard on his own order, but doing so without a governor's consent to deal with an intrastate natural disaster would be an extreme insult to the governor and the state. Also, using federal troops for local police actions is against the law.

President Bush declared the entire Gulf Coast including Louisiana and New Orleans a federal disaster area days before Katrina hit in order to speed federal aid.

Now let's get down to the real problem. The president got on the phone two days before the hurricane blew in to plead with Governor Blanco to order a mandatory evacuation. She didn't act.

Even Mayor Nagin could have ordered an evacuation. He didn't act. The city's own evacuation plan required the city to provide transportation for those without vehicles or with disabilities. Yet hundreds of school buses just sat there unused and were ruined by flood waters.

Let's place the blame where it belongs. Democrat Gov. Kathleen Blanco and Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin.



It's not our fault...At least, I didn't vote for Bush. LOL!nm
It's Bush's Fault...You made me laugh..sm

Does anyone recall during Clinton's 8 year presidency, the opposition constantly chanting IT'S CLINTON'S FAULT !!!..???...))) Have a good one.  

My roof is leaking - it's Bush's fault
I'm sure I'll find a lot of other stuff to blame on Bush
My porch has a crack in it, it's Bush's fault.
I have an ingrown toenail, it's Bush's fault.

Wah wah wah

So now the health care is Bush's fault? Hummmmmm....sm
I seem to recall that someone named Clinton ran largely on a platform to redo the health care plan, but of course, no one on the left ever remembers that.   Bush is suddenly responsible for every sin including original sin. 
Gotta laugh at the morons who think everything's Bush's fault too
snicker....Bush's fault-itis...started already.......sm
One thing's for sure. Obama won't get rid of all the Bush executive orders...he'll keep the dictator one, fer sure.....it's Bush's fault, after all.....
Right, it'll be "it's Bush's fault" for at least the next two years. I wonder when O
and his own white house. I'm fearing he won't. It will be "Bush's fault" for a long, long time to come.

Marmann's just proved it.
You're right. It IS Bush's fault. He belongs in jail,
All Bush's fault....good grief....talk about denial...
Fannie and freddie? Ring a bell? BarneyRubble on the finance committee who said (on video) why there is nothing to worry about! Fannie is sound...and even if it wasn't, the government wouldn't bail them out....ROFL. DEMOCRAT. Bush Admin and John McCain in particular years ago telling them a crisis was looming but BarneyRubble and his crew not only did nothing, they encouraged Fannie to loan even more to people who had no prayer of paying it back...with credit rating less than 0. So tell me again how it was Bush's fault...do you realize how silly that makes your post sound? Get real???? COME ON. LOL. Obama is trying...trying what? To turn us into a welfare state for sure? Yup. Throwing us down the slippery slope of socialism? Yup. Not only trying, people like you are helping him. Well, enjoy is all I can say. Glad I didn't vote for him. This is all you folks. :)
It's always somebody else's fault

You are all weenie victims...

Who is at fault? WH

The Bataan rode out the storm and then followed it toward shore, awaiting relief orders. Helicopter pilots flying from its deck were some of the first to begin plucking stranded New Orleans residents. But now the Bataan’s hospital facilities, including six operating rooms and beds for 600 patients, are empty.” [Chicago Tribune]

But the fault does not
 lie with the left, much as you would have it be. We should never have been in Viet Nam and we should never have been in Iraq. We will leave someday and the chaos will just continue and worsen.  You can blame the left all you want for Viet Nam and its aftermath but in this war, the American people are disgusted with it and sick of it and angry at being manipulated and flat-out lied to. It is not us out in the streets protesting. So when the Iraqi citizens become worse off than they are now which is pretty awful, you cannot blame the left. We have no power. We do not demonstrate and those few that try are banished to some **pen** a mile away from where anyone can see or hear them.  What will change hopefully with this election is that the next administration is not as oil-hungry as this one is. It is the prospect of losing our presence and influence in those oil-rich countries that keeps the war going...and surprisingly the Emerald City seems to mimic Saddam's palace. It is huge, everything works. They have electricity, they have water, they have food, they have air conditioning while the soldiers have not enough of anything and the Iraqi people even less. No wonder so many of them want the **occupiers** out of there.  None of this is the fault of the left. This time things have gone sour due to incompetence, nothing else, certainly not the left. We have no influence or power and even if we did, we would be ignored. This is a real case of taxation without representation for us. Wish I could think of something appropriate to pour into Tampa Bay.
Okay...so it is our fault
that Obama dressed like a terrorist?
And this is their fault because....nm?
You got it - and of course it will never be the O's fault
I know, it will be Bush's fault. Whatever hasn't happened yet, lets blame it on Bush. The crats are going to.
Then it's their own fault
No one is holding them back, but nobody is going to do it for them. They have to apply themselves like everyone else in America.

This country was built on the belief that no matter who you or where you come from, if you work hard you can make it.

Sometimes you have to try and try again, but nobody is holding them back but their own self limitation.

Playing the victim never got anybody anywhere. It's time to give up that old tired excuse and work hard just like everyone else has done all along.

Sorry if reality hurts, but it's the truth.
It's not BB's fault, he only knows what MSN wants him to know!! sm
He is just displaying exactly what they do on MSN; make fun of others and keep em' laughing.  Fortunately there are fewer and fewer people that still believe any of MSN's stories.  For the ones who are left they will be smacked in the face with the truth later and then get ticked off at MSN for not telling them the real stories or truth.
Yes, the fault lies with me.

I was able to get the link to work.  You were not.  So something is wrong with me. 

So typical.

Uh....when have you admitted a fault...
or fallacy, piglet?

Threatened...? Nope. Mildly amused. You two obviously feel the need to have each other to pile on; that certainly sounds more like feeling threatened than anything I have done.

I think you mean what do I feel about comradery that is distasteful not tasteful..?? I did not say it was distasteful at all! I said it was amusing. And it is. You enjoy ridiculing and find it humorous. You have that in common, and I find that amusing. I am allowed.

Distasteful joke? Oh COME on. Geez. Some of the things guys have posted and guffawed here about actual people by name and you call me distasteful?? Apparently Whorn at least has a sense of humor. Belittled an entire human race? An entire human race? I thought there was only one...human race that it is.
You are really reaching on that one. If one cannot poke fun at Osama Bin Laden without you getting all up in arms about "an entire human race..."

You are always good for a laugh, piglet. To use your own words...guffaw.
its obama's fault

wait and see.


Nah, it's Edwards fault cuz
they was havin' illicit sex, too! Can you imagine big oil and the dept of interior in bed together!!!!!!!   Boggles the mind!!!!!
I understand. However, is that the fault...
of people who worked hard to get where THEY are? That their income should be cut in order to supplement mine? I'm sorry; I don't think so. I think redistribution is wrong. And it affects all of us, because as the top starts to come down we get forced out of the middle class and into the lower class. They will be the new middle class, and the "wealth" will be GOVERNMENT-CONTROLLED at the top. That extra taxation goes to the government, not directly to you. That is what happened in Venezuela...Chavez. Castro...Cuba. That is what happens with socialism. Because once the government controls everything, they dole it out as they see fit, "taking care" of us (socialism), apparently because they think they know what is better for us than WE do. I for one do not want to relinquish that kind of control to the government.
I get it. You don't care whose fault it is....
unless of course those had been Republicans on the video. Then you would be singing a much different tune. I see where you are coming from. Got it.
don't you know, everything is his fault...I stubbed my toe...
obama's fault...

The guy who said it was their own fault was spot on...SM

We see on here naive individuals who say "it can't happen here, we have the second amendment". These people are our enemy within.

Many nations are now disarmed and the United Nations goal is the ban of all small arms. Do you know anyone who likes the United Nations? That's right the messiah.

Some interesting Hitler quotes. A few years ago many could be found. today it's tougher to find them, and the one about gun control that was common 20 years ago some sites say is false. Most of his gun control quotes are missing. Interesting.

This one is reported true from one site:

This year will go down in history! For the first time a civilised nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead in the future!” Adolph Hitler, 1935.

Yet reported as false from another. I think the first I seen this quote was in the early 1980's. Two years ago it was common on the internet. When I first seen it years ago the date and place were also included. Was it false, or what gives.

I checked further and found this in a historical reference.

The Nazis did pass a weapons law in 1938, but that only added restrictions to the previous law, especially for Jews and other "non-citizens."

They say a very restrictive law was already in place and did not require Hitler to do anything but strengthen it.

This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!

The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms.

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.

Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

Sooner will a camel pass through a needle's eye than a great man be "discovered" by an election.

Sooner will a camel pass through a needle's eye than a great man be "discovered" by an election.

What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.

When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community."
Adolf Hitler
Speech November 1933, quoted in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer

What luck for rulers, that men do not think.

So are you now saying that it is Obama's fault
didn't sue him earlier? If he was so concerned about the Constitution, why did he not challenge Obama BEFORE he was nominated? Let me help you with this one. That would be because never in his wildest imagination could he believe that HC, his favored candidate, would not be nominated. This paricular lawsuit is politically motived by a disaffected HC supporter who is now in over his head and is trying to vindicate what is left of his tarnished reputation. If he had a real case, he would not be basing his action on "standing" and "harm" claims, but rather would not hesitate to PROVE once and for all that the BC is not valid. The burden of proof is on him. He can't do it. The judge dismissed him. The US Secretary of State upheld Obama's eligibility. The only place this can end up now in terms of political gain would be the Congress...after the election.
That is their fault. They have been in trouble for
Oh, I see. It's all the Democrats fault.

It's McCain's fault....(sm)
He said during his campaign that he knew how to get Osama bin Laden.  Has he known how to do this all along?  I guess since he didn't get elected he's not willing to share that info.....ROFL..
So It's the Democrats' Fault?
Being on welfare has nothing to do with the party system in this country.

This is not a problem that was created by any one party, nor can it be solved by any one party.

Until the Republicans quit trying to see everyting as Us versus Them, nothing is ever going to be accomplished in this country. I'm getting tired of the Republicans in this country being so divisive.

How about using that energy for the GOOD of EVERYONE. Stop seeing things through party-line glasses.
This is past history. We need to move forward and come up with some real, workable solutions.

It matters not who created this mess, it is ALL of ours to fix!

What is gained by pointing fingers, name calling and childish, school yard games that go on on this board?

Thank God there are a few (VERY few) intelligent posters here that keep me coming back.

Let's bury the blame and get moving forward, shall we?
That's MSNBC's fault for staffing ...
a news event with commentators. Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman are not journalists. They are political commentators, and their opinions are what bring in the ratings on their programs.

But, generally speaking, journalism is just not what it used to be. Impartial reporting and confirmed information have been left at the wayside. These days it's all about getting out the big story fast, whether or not it's actually true.

Walter Cronkite would have choked himself on the air before ever starting a story with "Unconfirmed reports say . . . " How often do we hear that as the lead-in to a news story? Translation: "Rumor has it . . . "

So that's my rant for today. Matthews and Olberman shouldn't be reporting on anything.
"It's all Jed Clampett's fault"...sm
In an exclusive interview granted today to the mass media at a press conference, the 87-year-old Beverly Hills banker, Mr. Drysdale, reveals to the world the real reason behind the oil crisis and the state of our economy today. 

"It was all Jed Clampett's fault," said Mr. Drysdale in the crackling voice of a man who has lived under the stress of keeping a secret for 40 years.  "Had he not sold his oil to foreign interests at an obsene amount of money, we would have had enough oil to run this country for the next 200 years."

When pressed for further details regarding the state of the overall economic picture of the country and the government's failing coffers, Drysdale replied, "Mr. Clampett, despite my urging, refused to pay income tax on the money he received for his oil sale to foreign countries.  Instead, he deposited a pittance in my bank and the rest in overseas bank accounts with untracable numbers."

"What Mr. Drysdale says is true," confirms Miss Jane Hathaway, his secretary for over 40 years as she pounds on dusty old ledgers that she said had been locked away in an undisclosed location for these past 40 years.  "The proof is all right here.  The CIA and FBI had these sealed until after the passing of Mr. Clampett and the subsequent 'disappearance' of Jethro and Ellie Mae along with all the money." 

Critics are saying that Drysdale has come forward only out of bitterness that his Beverly Hills bank was not one of the ones bailed out, even though it was at the top of the list for aid from the federal government and that Miss Hathaway is just harboring ill feelings toward Jethro for never having married her. 
Certainly not all the dems fault but call out those
Sure couldn't fault him if he did. (YAWN)
My feelings - 'Don't talk!Just LEAVE, already!'
It's Barney Frank's fault??!!??!!
Thanks for the laugh!
Basically, it is the Democrats' fault...
if they would stop with the "gimme" programs and attach all of it to the public works that Obama is concerned about, make them accept a little responsibility with the free health care, foodstamps, and welfare checks...in hopes of getting them OFF those things...THEN Democrats would be doing something GOOD for people. Try lifting them OUT of poverty and teach them to work for what they get instead of REWARDING them for staying in poverty?? Hellooooo???
Basically it is the dems fault.
They are the ones who pushed the bailout of Wall Street. They are the ones who is giving more towards the bailout. They are the ones who made up this whole stimulus package that they are trying to push through by FRIDAY.. tomorrow. They promised O that this will pass with or without pub support. So, who's fault is it? The independent party?
Of course it's the fault of the terrorists for carrying out attacks.

And it's the fault of this president for obsessing about Saddam Hussein (since he's been doing since the early 1990s) and not doing enough to protect his own people from future attacks.

The terrorists have all the power here.  They're holding all the cards.  They once again managed to scare a large part of the world.  They also know something that American soldiers DON'T know.  The know what the outcome of their plan is going to be.  They use the element of surprise, and when they wake up in the morning, they don't wonder if they're still going to be alive the next day.  They already KNOW they won't be because they've planned it that way.  They control their own fate, as well as the fate of everyone who gets in their way.

Our soldiers have to deal with that every single day.  A car bomb here.  A suicide bomber there.  Every single day is 9/11 for them.  It sounds real nice to pretend to respect and honor them when participating in a photo op on an aircraft carrier.  Why doesn't he care enough about their lives to provide adequate body armor and Humvees for them?  He has no problem giving big tax breaks to his rich base (and YES, they are his REAL base, not the Christian right; just wait till he betrays you all with his moderate Supreme Court nominees). He has no problem giving free healthcare to all Iraqis. Forget about the American people for a minute. Why can't he care about our troops -- our CHILDREN -- enough to supply them with adequate equipment?  Of course, he personally would not know what constitutes adequate equipment because HE WAS TOO MUCH OF A COWARD TO EVER SERVE IN COMBAT.

As far as giving this President too much credit, you obviously didn't comprehend one word of my post.


here's its all Bill Clinton's fault post
like clockwork.
The operative phrase "due to no fault of their own"
and then there's the millions of others that are just LAZY

I have no problem helping the disabled or even someone that lost their job and has some hard times...

My problem is those that choose not to better themselves BECAUSE of these handouts.

Dont tell me I deserve to work my ASS OFF to pay for these people to live.

I have a huge heart, and I don't make much money even after working hard, and I choose to give it to the charities of my choice, which is the way it should be, not TAKEN from me to give to people that DONT want to better themselves.
