I'm really sick of hearing all the lies, the Fox news, or really fake news crowd, plus the Republicans and tea-baggers, say President Obama inherited a disaster from George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Where were these people when, in Iraq, during the early days, 2003 to 2005, there were row upon row of semi-trailers filled with "bricks" of U.S. dollars? These "bricks" contain $1 million, people, and you, the American taxpayers, paid for this. The stories I've heard said that close to $5 trillion "disappeared" in Iraq. Many of the KBR and Blackwater CEOs built $20 million homes after coming home from Iraq. Where did they get this money? Think this had anything to do with our great recession?

Why did Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback vote against the stimulus package? Now, they brag about getting money for the East Mary Street and Jennie Barker Road project to be completed and this was because of the stimulus project, people.

Why, on July 28, 2005, when KBR (Dick Cheney's company) employee Jamie Leigh Jones was repeatedly raped by seven KBR employees did the U.S. State Department and U.S. Justice Department do nothing? Family values again? Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts, last year, voted "against" legislation outlawing such terrible behavior. This was when Republicans ran the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

I sure don't know why Sam Brownback would talk to Lou Engle, a preacher as crazy as Fred Phelps. Or, why he met with Becky Fischer, who thinks Palestinian "suicide-bombers" are to be "admired"? Do we want him to be governor? Not hardly.
