'Diplomat'......Please, oh Pleasd tell us how things were better while George W. Bush was in charge!
I mean....lets's see....a multi-Trilliion surplus, compared to a multi-trillion deficit....Yup! THAT'S a great thing to spout as a 'success'.
Oh! and Americans who torture???? THAT is the biggest, the worst 'deficit' that anyone can imagine.....BECAUSE it has shown what is supposed to

something far, far worse. This individual, whilst occupying the the Office of the President of the United States of America, has, by his own
admission on National Television, admitted to authorizing torture of certain detainees.
Allow me to emphasize this....a sitting President, in an interview (admittedly, NOT under Oath) admitted to authorizing the torture of certain
THIS IS BIG NEWS, FOLKS!!!!!!
