If bush1 kept us so "safe", bush2, then why did 2,996 perish from Terrorists attacks on 9/11/2001?

Had little bush paid attention to this instead of "removing brush".. then maybe he would have but he didn't and you're a god damn liar.. August 6, 2001 Memo that stated..

"Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US was the President's Daily Brief prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency and given to U.S. President George W. Bush on Monday, August 6, 2001. The brief warned of terrorism threats from Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda 36 days before the September 11, 2001 attacks."

Anyway.. bush2 has come a long way since this...



Still..

Nancy LeTourneau is saying basically the same, 23..

Those who accuse people of calling Bernie a racist simply because they are asking questions about his stance on the uber important racial issues of our time, are only hurting themselves and their campaign to get Bernie in the White House.

I can only imagine how Black people feel about having their concerns dismissed by charges of "you're calling Bernie a Racist!".. This Scottish lass is pissed! I see exactly how they like to play the victim card based on fantasy.

"But the golden age wasn’t golden for people who weren’t white.."

"Yes, African American incomes rose and unemployment declined in those years. But black people were locked out of many of the wealth-generating opportunities of the era: blocked from suburbs with restricted covenants and redlined into neighborhoods where banks wouldn’t lend; left out by the GI Bill, which didn’t prevent racial discrimination; neglected by labor unions, which discriminated against or outright blocked black members. (That’s why I gave my book, “What’s the Matter with White People?”, the subtitle “Why We Long for a Golden Age that Never Was.”)"

"And American politics today requires that they be corrected: no Democrat can win the presidency without consolidating the Obama coalition, particularly the African American vote."


That's what I've been saying repeatedly! Obama is a popular President.. I don't care that the majority on DU doesn't know or care.

Starting off with asking likely Democratic caucus-goers to rate their feelings from very favorable, mostly favorable, mostly unfavorable, or very unfavorable about prominent Democrats, President Obama topped the list of 89% favorable to 9% unfavorable.

The President hasn't rejected all "race specific solutions".. but too many people don't even know about this from the President..

"My Brother's Keeper" Feb 27, 2014



Youth Guidance: President Obama Invites BAM Program Back To The White House

President Obama has invited Youth Guidance’s Becoming a Man (B.A.M.) program back to Washington D.C. to kick off a new White House initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper.” Three B.A.M. students from Hyde Park High School, along with B.A.M. Lead Supervisor, Marshaun Bacon, and Youth Guidance Board Member, Stuart Taylor, will visit the White House Thursday and Friday. The President’s initiative will support young male minorities by bringing foundations and companies together to find ways to keep young men in school and out of the criminal justice system.

President Obama speaks at the launch of the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance May 4, 2015



And, that's what he's said he's going to do when he leaves office, too..

"Obama’s Retirement Plan: Help Black Kids"

After he leaves the White House, friends say the president will return to his passion: helping African Americans through his My Brother's Keeper Alliance.

What is in Barack Obama’s heart? Underneath that cool exterior, it can be hard to tell. When he leaves office in 2017, he will be a fit 55-year-old with decades of productive life likely ahead of him. How will he use them?

I went to the Bronx on Monday with a hunch that Obama was about to tell us; and I wasn’t disappointed.

Mahalo for your thread, geek.




Such an accomplishments helping Gay Rights! They cerainly are "human rights"!

Quite the resume Hillary has! Too funny how some feel the need to jump on postive accomplishments

and try to insert their squeaky negativity.

they're doing Bernie such an incredible amount of disservice.

Wow! "Correct the Record" I'm so grateful for all this information.. It's telling the real

story of Hillary's life in service.

Not just the negative stuff hounded over and over ad nauseam.

"Secretary Clinton helped restore America’s leadership and standing in the world during a time of..

global challenges and changes. Secretary Clinton worked tirelessly to revitalize American diplomacy and strengthen alliances by traveling nearly a million miles for hundreds of meetings with foreign leaders in 112 countries. As America’s lead diplomat, Secretary Clinton understood the importance of engaging the public and took diplomacy directly to people around the world. Just as she was as a senator, Secretary Clinton was a workhorse, often taking on difficult challenges and addressing them directly around the world."

That's right.. very important point. I forget who bush had as SOS but we know America's policies were hated by so much of the world with good reason.

Hillary had a huge challenge repairing all of the destruction of the bush admin.

"Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Extend Run as Most Admired" 2014~

Hey Aloha and Mahalo, Agschmid.. "Hillary Fighting For America's Workers"!

This is an excellent record of history for Hillary!

Bookmarked.

P.S. I thought I saw you were a Bernie supporter.. must have gotten you mixed with someone else. I haven't zeroed in on one candidate yet but I'm leaning towards Hillary just from the pros and cons around here.

Really. That's a rw talking point that evidently sucked in more than their usuals.

"On the surface it sounds damning. The Secretary of State potentially sent top secret information through her personal account, even though there’s evidently a law that says she’s not allowed to use a personal account for government business — sounds outrageous. But like many of the bombshell news stories we’ve witnessed in the last couple of years, it all falls apart under the most cursory level of scrutiny.

1) The article quotes a lawyer affiliated with the National Archives who set the tone for the outrage

“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” said Jason R. Baron, a lawyer at Drinker Biddle & Reath who is a former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.

A nuclear winter! Interesting, because the article goes on to note that numerous other State Department and other government officials have used private email accounts, partially or exclusively, including Secretary of State Colin Powell who only used a personal email account.

snip//

None of this has stopped the Twitter jihad, and especially conservatives on Twitter, from jumping to all kinds of wildly uninformed, unthinking conclusions in spite of the fact that it appears we have yet another dubiously-reported bombshell. It might not be as over-the-top dubious at some of the NSA reporting of 2013-14, but it’s definitely in the same territory. No laws were apparently broken, as far as we know, and the article completely fails to show hard evidence of irresponsible email transmissions by Clinton. Should she have used a government email account? Probably. But does this warrant what’s surely going to be 20 months of indignation and investigations from both the right — and the anti-Hillary left? No way.

snip//

4. At the time Clinton was Secretary, the Federal Records Act didn’t require federal employees to use government accounts, only to preserve records of their communications. This, Clinton seems to have done.

MOre.. I just snipped and snipped..
