Jack Lew....not so much.
I really hope Hagel, Brennan, and Lew all get blocked.

YOU could Keep It Simple For yourSelf
IF YOU had read MY request
[url=http://forums.cnet.com/7726-6130_102-5427598.htmlYOU list things that YOU think aren't his fault.
it should be a very short list, recalling all your previous posts.[/url]
You would have listed things that you think AREN'T his fault. (which I know is nothing) But did you do that? ...OH NO....Not you, you go on the rampage, Yet Again.
you are attempting to disparage me by using the 'rampage' word, you also have to recall that I have said all along that you would have to put up with four more years of my 'ranting' against BO. I have never ONCE said I would praise a man I believe is completely deranged and dangerous for this country. YOU call my rants 'rampage'.......I call my rants continued proof the guy is a liar with a dangerous agenda. YOU live in Canada.......you're safe from him for the most part......at least until his global agendas actually affect Canada as well.
You love him as much as our liberal news media does.......you can't see anything beyond his pearly teeth, his soothing singing voice, his hoopshots, and his charisma with Hollywood. I have not seen YOU post even one complaint about him in five years, so please don't give me any crap about how I COULD have posted something good about it, when you can't post even one thing that he's actually at fault over.
RE: how I COULD have posted something good about it,
That's not what I requested
YOU list things that YOU think aren't his fault.
I'm not asking you to provide "good things" you think HE did. List things that happened that aren't his fault/responsibility, good or/and bad.
You're telling me there is not ONE thing that has happened in America in the last 4 years that was good (even done by someone other than Obama).
How bout getting Bin Laden?...Any joy there? Any credit for Obama? (Please don't blame Obama because Clinton did get Bin Laden years ago)
She credits Bush for getting bin Laden.....

......and has also suggested that killing him was a bad idea, which is just another way of making one of the greatest "gets" in history into another criticism.
There is absolutely nothing this president can do that Toni won't find a way to bash.
I credit Bush's policies
that BO, after criticizing them heavily, chose to keep them in place........there is a difference, Josh.
That is not a bash.....it's actually a backhanded way of giving him praise for something. I never suggested that killing him was a bad idea. What I HAVE said is that BO's drone policy doesn't allow for capture and getting intelligence anymore. But he would HAVE to kill them instead of capturing because then he would have to send the captured to Gitmo......and he doesn't want to do that after all that talk about closing it down (which he hasn't done either), does he?
You did so suggest it was a bad idea
You said more than once that incidents like Benghazi were fueled by anger over the killing of bin Laden, and that killing him caused an uptick in terrorist activity in general.
Please show me even one post where
I said that, Josh, since you claim that I made that assertion more than once and yet I don't recall even thinking that. If I indicated anything even close to what you just conjured up, it's that with BO bragging that OBL is dead and AQ is on the run, THOSE were the inciting statements that would have caused the uptick to prove him wrong.....which is what it did.
BO during his first few months of office went on an American Apology tour saying that America was arrogant........and yet his bragging was the most arrogant you can get and not **** off a whole lot of people who already want to kill us all.
The "apology tour" is another tired lie
It never happened and you know it, though you've often espoused the very arrogance you didn't think he should admit to.
Not sure how I'd find the bin Laden posts without searching everything you've posted. I tried "bin Laden" and "UBL" and neither worked.
Tell me you're kidding
CNN isn't going to say anything bad against BO anymore than the rest of the liberal rags, Josh. I'm sure you've seen all the videos (such as BO's first speech in Egypt) 'admitting' to the world that America is arrogant and the cause of all those poor radicals rising up against us. Gimme a break........he's been kissing their asssses for years and you still believe his smile will break the ice and make us all good friends and allies.
In other words.....
......your mind is made up and facts aren't going to change it.
There is only one good thing that

BO has done in four years plus.........he KEPT every one of the Bush policies in place that allowed BO to actually get OBL and actually expanded them......even though as a Senator and when he ran for Prez the first time, he rallied against every single one of those policies.
Now YOU list all the good things that he's done besides that one, please. Or better yet......list all the BAD things you think he's done. That way the list will be really short for you. Can you find one or two?
RE: Now YOU list
NO..I don't do lists.
you don't do lists unless it's against a Conservative, which you are prone to do on a regular basis.
But it's even more obvious that you don't find anything to fault BO for........anymore than our LSM does.
RE: BO is the one who demanded sequestration
figuring that nobody would eventually get to this point in time and have it happen,
The looming across-the-board budget cuts that could put scores of Americans out of work next year are all President Barack Obama's fault.
That's according to congressional Republicans — the majority of whom voted for the deal that laid the groundwork for the cuts in the first place.
Obama was not alone in figuring it would never happen?
Another item for you to think about
The 2% cut with sequestration ......... is the same percentage that all taxpayers just got an increase in their taxes on Jan 1. Isn't it curious to you how the administration figures the people themselves can adjust to taking a 2% tax HIKE within their home budget but the WH can't figure out how to take a 2% CUT in theirs?
NO comment about the majority of Republicans
voting for Sequestration?
I figured that...
Odd, I remember it was something came up with by all that was suppose to be so drastic they would make a deal to avoid it.
Sequestration is a fiscal policy procedure adopted by Congress to deal with the federal budget deficit. It first appeared in the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Act of 1985.
Simply put, sequestration is the cancellation of budgetary resources -- an "automatic" form of spending cutback.
Yes...BO demanded it
in order to get some other type of concession.......and YES, all three parties (Reps, Dems, and BO) agreed and voted on it (remember, only BO could actually sign it into law when he really didn't have to either so he's just as much at fault here). HIS idea, HIS demand, HIS signature.........and now HE'S saying it's the Republican's fault if it happens. Of course, NOBODY expected it to happen, because what BO expected was that the Republicans would cave and give him what he wanted all along, and it's not happening so now HE'S saying publicly that it's all the Republican's fault that the FBI will be short-handed. This is literally Chicago politics at its best..........and I really hope the Reps DON'T cave and just let it happen. This is a made up crisis AGAIN.......we will NOT go into the toilet over sequestration, and if things have to hurt for a short period of time in order to wake people up, so be it. Personal households have been hurting for far longer and without any consideration by this administration. They saw a 2% hike in their taxes across the whole country........the government can take a 2% hit as well. Tuff.
I blame every damn member of Congress too though, you lay everything back to him.
Yes, he had to sign it. Congress had to send it to him first, equal at least.
He says it's Republican's fault, Boehner says it's all Democrat fault.
One is as guilty as another.
So you want it to happen. 20% pay cut for civilian defense workers, 2 navy aircraft fleets mothballed, and that's just the first year.
Military cuts will eventually extend to the members as well as the civilians.
So why don't we just cut all SS, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, unemployement help, and any other aid in half today and tell people too bad?
That would balence the budget in record time.
I'd expect crime to go up, epidemic deaths to go up, suicides to go way up, but hey, if we decrease the surplus population unemployment will go down. There may be a surplus of housing, so that market tanks again, but oh well.
The sequestration boogie man was suppose to mean all of Congress would work to fix it, not each "stand their ground" and point at the other.
I hope you and your's make it through if there is no alternative to sequestration for the next 4 years budgets, many won't.
I realize you said you were done
but I hope you will at least read this........
24 MILLION people out of work........three times what it was when BO took office four years ago. Do you think they would have 'rather' have had to take a 20% cut in pay but still have those jobs instead of having no job at all?
You do realize that the 2% cut across the board ONLY affects the automatic increases to those departments that they get every year and not their actual base 'budget'? That means they will still get their 2012 budget amounts plus 98% increase.
And BO can stop this.....he has the power to do so since only HE has the authority to decide where the cuts will happen AND he has the power to accept the House's bill (with bi-partisan support)that shows which departments and agencies will/could take a hit instead of the Pentagon. The president has decided instead to play chicken in order to break the backs of the Republicans and either force them to cave again to his demands for more revenue (doesn't matter that he just got that a month ago) or take the blame for sequestration. He is NOT out there blaming the Democrats publicly, Roger, or accepting any blame himself and you know it.
