When Bush was President, Cheney said “Deficits don’t matter”
but when Obama was elected, suddenly deficits were a ‘National Emergency”.
They said Saddam Hussein had WMDs, then he didn’t.
They said they would get Osama Ben Laden “dead or alive”, then they lost interest.
They said Banking Deregulation would be “good for the economy” and that lead to the Great Recession.
They said they wanted to “get Government off the People’s back”, now they want to stick a vaginal probe in your sister/wife/mother’s womb.
The 2010 #GOP House said “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” were their # Priority, but they’ve done nothing on jobs.
They said Climate Change/Warming was a Hoax, yeah right.
When will the rubes stop believing these #GOP hucksters?

1. The Chinese financed our war on Iraq by buying US bonds and China now buys more than 50%
of Iraq's oil.
And, our 5th fleet keeps the Gulf of Iran open so that the oil keeps flowing to China.
Is this was Bush and Powell wanted war with Iraq? To finance China's dominance in purchasing Iraq's oil?
Our deficit is China's gain.

2. But China wasn't the only beneficiary of the Iraq War.
Iran went from having a bitter enemy at their Western border to having a new ally, propped up and defended by the U.S., to help them expand their influence in the region.
That's why it's so important to the power elites that we get involved in actively toppling the Iran-friendly regime in Syria. To make up for our foolish error in expanding Iran's influence in the first place.
