Obama could have so easily turned this into political victory had he just swallowed a little pride welcomed the pm with open arms. But his narcissistic desire to be king of the world got the best of him.

'As a Christian, I love the Muslim people. I am commanded to love and not to hate, and I only hate the evil that is committed.' That quote is the heart of Christian fundamentalism. Christianity is the true religion of peace. The very rare cases of violent acts committed in the name of Christianity are extreme outliers and never reflect the fundamental principles Christ.

To the liberals, any act of violence directed toward the government at any level must be right wing extremism.
Whether the Muslim terrorists are following mainstream beliefs or are an extremist sect of Islam, they are motivated by their religious beliefs. From what I have seen, the extremist side quote the Quran a lot more than the religion of peace side.
I think this is one of those things that legitimately falls under the 'general welfare' clause of the constitution. His example of texting while driving does, too. But the mandatory seat belt thing does not. I always where my seatbelt regardless of the law, but if I choose not to, I only put myself at risk and not the general public. Dr. Carson's lumping seatbelts with texting and vaccinations could be biased because of injuries he has seen in the operating room that are consequences of not wearing seatbelts.
A speech prepared in advance and read from the teleprompter. Worst president ever.

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.
