Washington Post’s Bob Woodward on Fox News Sunday said the just concluded budget deal happened “because Obama was not part of the negotiations”
@collioureAnd you are surprised why? The GOP proclaimed back before he was even elected that they will not deal with him. Sometimes its easier to ignore the children in the GOP then it is to argue with them.
Serious question, not just a dig at McCain: Do other countries have people who are not elected/appointed on a federal level that travel abroad and threaten military intervention?
@MistressMetalMeNo. Many other countries would have McCain arrested for war mongering.
@MistressMetalMe Perhaps, like the one he elevated, St. John is going "rouge".
He is really bonkers.
After you lose a Presidential election, you're supposed to demonstrate why should have been preferred.
Week after week this jerk demonstrates why he should have lost.
@MistressMetalMe, President McCain has been having some problems since 2008 when he became the first white guy in US history to lose a presidential election to a black man viewed by many to be the anti-Christ. He's been in public therapy for 5 years (Meet The Press). Once a week the network allows him to address the nation in a kind of ersatz State of the Union forum. It was thoughtful of them, but no progress has been made in re-connecting John with reality.
@collioure, I'm a partisan and support the democrats. I have several friends and co-workers that usually vote for the democrats no matter what. They would not vote for Obama simply because he was black. The democratic party also has racists. There's no denying that. Race was a factor in 2008 and 2010.
@collioureIts pretty common knowledge that GWB protected and helped Saudis leave the country after 9/11. The Bush family has made millions from dealing with the Saudi royal family and weren't about to bite the hand that feeds them. Of course they also wanted to cast suspicion on Saddam and showing Saudi involvement would have proven inconvenient to their narrative. Keep in mind that this is the same Saudi government that now wants to push us into a war with Iran.
ObL was the black sheep of the bin Laden family that was allowed to leave for their protection.
The rest of this I didn't know. I haven't read it all yet. Very difficult relation obviously.
Please save your partisan crap for someone else. I'm tired of seeing it here.
We attacked Afghanistan according to my sources.
Now I've read it. I agree with the two courageous Congressmen that the whole report should be released.
We need to come to grips with the Saudis ASAP.
@collioure@mantisdragon91 So why do you think GWB made sure that these 28 pages pointing to Saudi involvement were redacted? What do you think his motivations were?
Curiouser and Curiouser.
In 1978, Bush and Osama bin Laden's brother, Salem bin Laden, founded Arbusto Energy, an oil company based in Texas.
Several bin Laden family members invested millions in The Carlyle Group, a private global equity firm based in Washington, DC. The company's senior advisor was Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush. After news of the bin Laden-Bush connection became public, the elder Bush stepped down from Carlyle.
Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle Group - including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker - were meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along with Shafiq bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden's brothers.

In response to the first paragraph of your post, I don't know but we all need to know.
I doubt at that time we could have done without their oil, but that's all the more reason to become energy self-sufficient ASAP
I remember hearing at the time that prior to 9-11 some people just left heir homes and never returned, and this article offers one example of such.
Clearly many in Washington were aware of this development.
I suspect we'll hear more about this soon.
@collioure@mantisdragon91Let me break it down for you, since you seem to be in denial. GWB, Cheney and their GOP enablers, including Fox News, deliberately withheld evidence of who provided support to the 9/11 terrorists. They deliberately hid Saudi involvement while doing everything possible to pin the blame on Saddam.
@collioureWe needed to come to grips with them a decade ago. By getting rid of Saddam, we made them into a regional power broker instead. The money and men wasted on Iraq, should have been used to put the current regime of Theocracy there out of power and replace them with people who don't still believe that beheading and public stoning are acceptable government sanctioned punishment.
Actor Peter O'Toole has passed away. RIP.
If you didn't watch it in a theater in 70mm, you haven't seen it.
Two other movies of his I loved are My Favorite Year and The Stuntman.
Ok, Sunday morning jabs at @collioure...now officially over.
But the bigger question is:
Which Seahawk team is showing up today, the well oiled machine or the ragtag bunch of guys who depend on raw talent to win (mostly)?
I'm hoping that the Seahawks clinch today, they're in a similar position to the Pats, which is going to beat the Dolphins, but it will be close.
Can't say a word about Gronk, but wow, I saw him play last week. That guy is just deadly when he gets the ball.
How's the stomach contents?
BTW, you strap on a geoduck yet?
We're so manly up here in Washington we even have wildlife you can strap on!
You're just not a man, then I guess.
