I am not sad that bin Ladin is dead, but we will never know if it would have been better for us to capture him and interrogate him at gitmo.

What would I rather have happen to me? Would I want to be sent to gitmo and water boarded under Bush or blown up in a drone strike under Obama? I will have to think about it.
So am I correct that this means that S&P will now be able to defend itself in court and show that their methods were sound and consistent all along and that this was never anything more than a witch hunt? It seems to me that if S&P has done nothing wrong it will win.
Random thought: if every tax increase over the last 50 years that promised to eliminate the deficit "over the next ten years" came true we would not have a national debt.
Shrinking at a huge rate depends on where you measure from. So we measure from the 1.4 trillion dollar deficit of 07. Bush was president. A large part of that deficit should be blamed on Bush and the democratic congress over his last two years. But also included in that deficit were TARP which Obama voter for and Obama's stimulus. But the real point is that we are measuring from an outlier year instead of an average year.
Static scoring favors liberals. Under it they can raise taxes and include the projected increased revenue in the budget and then simply borrow to cover their shortfall in the estimate. If they had a more accurate revenue prediction it would reduce their budget.

The CIA and Its Torturers

What exactly did the CIA do that was torture? I thought the worst they did was waterboarding. Is that torture?
And every government shutdown in my memory turned out to be a paid vacation when it was over.
When I factor in the increased premiums and higher out of pocket cost my health care costs will triple in January thanks to obamacare. Illegals will be more desirable hires since employers will not have to provide coverage or pay fines when they hire them. This dictator must be stopped and congress is obligated by its own oath to the constitution to stop him.
Congress also takes an oath to uphold the constitution. They should feel obligated to stop Obama. If congress funds Obama's illegal amnesty, they are actually ratifying it. What would happen if immigration officials refused to follow Obama's unlawful orders?
