Didn't you know? The natural aging process is now Obama's fault, and we all aged much more slowly when GW was President.

We currently have 8.7 million people receiving SS disability benefits. The number of disabled veterans returning from Afghanistan is just a drop in that bucket.

It's not uncommon for people not to appreciate what one has until it isn't there anymore.

Or until the alleged better option doesn't turn out to be as good as predicted.

They are focusing more on oil now.


Gee wiz, according to your link, they are making more money in the Middle-East.

"Outside North America, activity was mixed, Halliburton said, with modest revenue increases in Latin America and the Middle East-Asia regions, but a decline in the Europe, Africa and former Soviet countries."

LOL, you think Biden could run anything? Obama picked him to just stay out of the way. He sure didn't want to pick Hillary since Bill would be just down the hall all the time.

He doesn't need to, he sends in the drones. Not saying this is bad since it saves our people but I don't think Bush had them.
