I heard that the Obama administration is blaming "bad intelligence" for their lack of foresight about ISIS and its current actions.

Really? Like the "bad intelligence" that the Bush administration received about WMDs?

No, that was an excuse, and Pres. Obama remains a victim of circumstance.

Puh-leeze....

They're making it up as they go, yet their supporters remain faithful...

see no evil

hear no evil

speak no evil

of Pres. Obama. Why? Well, because.

"North Dakotans -- and the rest of the red-faced, Red State, taker fake-triots that care about Bush -- are to blame for the crisis in Iraq."

PJinfinity, you really don't like North Dakota, do you? Too bad for you if you really live here.

Now back to the present: Pres. Obama has been authorizing the airstrikes and drone activity in Iraq, not that other guy.

Pres. Obama was proud of taking care of the former president's "mess" in Iraq. He said so, many times.

Now that ISIS is wreaking havoc on other human beings in Iraq, Pres. Obama's actions will NEVER be questioned by his sycophant followers. No, no.

Only Pres. Obama can execute a righteous airstrike, eh?

Hypocritical Democrats, still blaming Bush while Pres. Obama is the one with his finger on the trigger.

How does that make all the peaceniks feel?

Conflicted?

the way i see it is our leaders are to make things better and deal with the problems that show up not to point fingers and put gass on a fire, like the tax code fix the tax code doent blame your people for using the tax code that our leaders put in place, this is a poor leader all around.

Putin and iraqi terrorists are feeling the heat and squirming. The hate is so blind on fox that yesterday they had a guy say his price 4 health ins. on the exchenge was %400 per month and that was waaaay 2 high. He should check the price in walkers' wisconsin--2.5 times what we pay in ND. Math class in order 4 republican bengazi believers. If u want to go back 2 the beginning of the iraq war and an economy spiraling out of control--vote republican. They have not changed their rhetoric.

Who cares about bush, who cares about obama.

The problem with the USA system is that congress will not work together for anything. That is the shame. It will no doubt be any better when Republicans get into power and the dems own the congress.

So how do you fix it? I don't see any bright Dems or Republicans on here offering a solution.

None of you Regular guys will even run for Mayor of Minot. You'd rather sit behind your computers and quarterback things.

"The greatest scandal of all is that so many people are prepared to suspend beliefs in reality and buy into the absolute manufactured, surreal rhetoric that passes for (left) wing politics."

Credit for this c/p goes to billgrr, with just the slightest of edits coming from yours truly.

billgrr's vivid imagination is running away with him again.

There is no "scary black man" in the White House. There is a liberal Democrat president in the White House who campaigned as a pseudo-moderate and governs as an unabashed liberal.

Scary? No. Supported blindly by partisans like billgrr? Yes.

It's all the "unintended consequences" of liberal policies that we should be addressing, instead of keeping the wayback machine dialed in on former president Bush.

So the last six years of the Obama presidency have had zero "successes?" I think not.

Obamacare: unpopular

Foreign policy: disengaged

Economy: definitely not surging back

Confidence: so-so

Somewhat of a lackluster performance by a president whose supporters say he's the one we were waiting for...

Talk about blind, deaf and dumb, billgrr.

Q: What would diehard Democrat partisans do without a former Pres. Bush to blame for everything under the sun? ...Loco

A: There wouldn't be nearly the problems to solve had Bush not been the occupant of the oval "orifice" for 8 miserable years.

Bush is not assuaged of responsibility for his mistakes by your assertion that we are "blaming Bush" or "bashing Bush". He and Cheney are responsible for their actions. That includes war, debt and economic malaise (less than 1 mil. net jobs created in 8 years).

Your comment has not one true fact in it.

So even killing bin laden was a mistake, I knew at your core you Republicans are enemy sympathizers.

No part of this chick is lazy thank you very much garr. Look it up and trust/believe who's source? Sources you as a lib believe are reliable or me as a conservative believe are reliable?! No thanks I prefer to believe that the current White House is more sneaky and covers way more up (obvious) than past administrations. As I have said before, I don't need to "google" stats. It's a nasty cycle and I choose not to be a part of it.
