    Are you ignoring the four years of the largest deficits in history? And we are moving into four more of the same.

    Would you please stop with the illegal wars falsehood? They were entirely legal.

    The Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002,

    House voted 296-133 and the Senate voted 77-23 to grant that power to the President.

    Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war.

    So according to the law Kent, the Iraq conflict (not a “declared war” evidently) was voted on and approved by congress so if it was “illegal” then YOUR representative is guilty of the crime.

    It was actually the Secret Service that cancelled the WH tours not the POTUS. It being one of the first visible impacts of the sequester. In the coming months those effects are going to snowball everywhere from longer waits at the airports to federal aid to states drying up.

    You are correct but the Talipublicans see the world differently.

    Hey what about the wars Obama has led us to? Are they “good” wars that we can afford because he has the peace prize?

    Well you see, the white house tried to make it as if they made the decision. Some Secrete service guys did have to be put on leave and what not because of Obama’s need to be in charge of no I will not play with you and let this sequester happen. Obama did not want to make the decision with a meat clever to hit up sick kids or poor kids. So he just let the doors to his house be closed so no kids could come over and play. His press secretary said so. But then the holy polls took a hit. So Obama had to get right out in front of this crisis and say it was the the secrete service guys fault…

    Hype and Blame Obama!

    “It was actually the Secret Service that cancelled the WH tours not the POTUS.”

    The President is the chief executive of Homeland Security ergo chief executive of the Secret Service. There is no way that the Secret Service could stop White House tours without the President’s tacit or explicit approval.

    Thanks for taking the time to post the direct link to the CPC budget summary. I was glad to see that they did include some specific numbers in spreadsheet form at the end. I should have read the heading on the budget summary that I had instead of jumping directly to text. I might have noticed that mine was for 2012. An error I hope not to repeat. I, too, agree with some of the points in it, but I still believe it is more of a wish list than a reality check.

    To be honest I don’t even care that much but I would be interested to know your information source other than a partisan media outlet. Typically the secret service isn’t involved in budgetary decisions.

    Regardless of the issue of the ‘legality’ of the Iraq War . . .

    There were no WMDs. There were no ties to al-Qaeda, and no association with 9/11.

    It ended with 4486 Americans killed and 32000+ wounded, as well as a significant “burden on U.S. veterans and their families, showing a deep social cost.” The Iraq war has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest.

    In Iraq, the $212 billion reconstruction effort was largely a failure with most of that money spent on security or lost to waste and fraud. The war killed 134,000 Iraqi civilians and may have contributed to the deaths of as many as four times that number.

    For all this, today Iraq is a ‘democracy’, somewhat, and generally pro-Iranian. Oil production is back up to pre-war levels, but most of it going to China and India.
