    Remember how "The Haters" slammed Bush over Haliburton.

    OBAMA TAKES HIS ORDERS FROM BUSH OVER THE PHONE BUSH IS STILL RUNNING THINGS

    WARS
    GITMO
    HALIBURTON
    JUST LIKE BUSH

    IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE PRESIDENT JUG EARS BUYS A SUMMER HOME IN MAINE AND STARTS LISTENING TO COUNTRY MUSIC.

    There has been hints that Haliburton, KBR, had a role in the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico... remember all those secret meetings about Energy that Richard had??? One thing coming out is that many of the regulations from before were no longer there...

    If you read the whole article, Obama is doing this at the request of the commanders with boots on the ground, not to those inside the beltway..

    I believe this is because Haliburton and it's subsidiaries are the only companies large enough to take on projects of this scope and scale. I think this was also the case when they got the no bids in iraq. Of course, before it was just because of cheney. People that said that before now look like stupid @ssholes. Go figure.

    If you read the article, it says something completely different.. know you want to believe this, actually three companies could have done it.. they did not want to switch horses midstream..

    There is no defense, as Haliburton/Cheney has gotten too rich off of the American Taxpayer.. some day this whole house of fraud will be exposed.

    Funny, based on some your recent comments here, that would mean you're a "hater"....

    kbr and haliburton are two different companies. what haliburton did in iraq could not have been replicated by any one company. kbr was spun off of haliburton. they do different things. i still believe haliburton was the best and only choice for the war with iraq.

    My point was that the generals requested, and if we are going to be in idiotic wars would much rather listen to those implementing the whole logistics of this than those inside the beltway.. with that being said KBR and Haliburton have committed enough fraud for a couple of lifetime sentences...

    From the link in the OP:

    Good enough reason for me. Of course the fact that we're still right on target for exiting Iraq when Obama said we would is irrelevant. The important thing here is that the nation isn't tossing away $77 million dollars to satisfy teabaggers who can't be satisfied.

    When you have no point you resort to stuff like 'spin, spin, spin' or 'Iraaaaaaqqqq', or some stupid picture.

    No point? The point is in Obama's own words, and campaign promises (as shown in the video link), as well as the continuous criticisms of the Bush Administration for awarding no bid contracts. How many times have people in this very forum, hammered the Bush regime over this very issue? Yet here we are, with Obama in power, doing the same exact thing, and all of you are making excuses for him. So will you all now appologize for criticizing the Bush Admin in years past? Afterall, he was just doing it to save us money (sarcasm). The point is, you've been exposed for the frauds that you are. Call a spade a spade.

    I wonder if CNN will count this as a broken campaign promise.

    This has already been noted as a broken campaign promise for some time. Perhaps you haven't been paying attention, which wouldn't come as a surprise.

    If it really ends up saving 70 million, I can see why they did it, but on face value (without really knowing what factored into the decision-making process) it's not something I support.

    Sorry pal, there's been so many promises broken, that I've had a hard time keeping track.

    Thanks for at least proving that my point was warranted. A few years ago this was eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil. Now, it's a money saving measure, and an overall bargain of a deal. I bet Obama could repackage some of Bush's dog do-do, and sell it for a profit too. :D

    Really? You have a hard track keeping track of 19 items (of which, only a handful are really significant)?

    Uh, there is no spin. That number comes directly from the independent arbiter that factchecks and updates the status of promises made during the campaign.

    You made a wild and wholly false exaggeration and are attempting to back out of it rather than simply admitting you were wrong. Unless, of course, 19 is a number that strains the outer boundaries of your comprehension :)

    You mean that you, who never liked Obama to begin with, still don't approve of the job he's doing? Knock me over with a feather.

    I'm actually pretty satisfied with how Obama has acquitted himself. But I appreciate your concern.

    Funny, Obama actually comes under significant scrutiny from the left for things he's done (and failed to do) over the past 15 months. But that's not enough for the righties, even though most of them uttered nary a peep about Bush until 2008 (or 2007, for those who were really out on a limb)

    Also funny, things like "joker in chief" were considered treasonous by some. After all, this is the President! During a time of war!

    Good stuff.

    I never liked Obama politically (I think he's a solid dude personally though). Matter of fact, I had him pegged well before the election. Of course, I didn't like McLame either, which is why didn't vote for Coke or Pepsi in 2008, as I voted Libertarian. All of that is niether here, nor there. It's got nothing to do with the price of banana's. The point remains that Obama is doing what he promised he wouldn't. He's doing exactly what the Bush/Cheney Admin did, which the vast majority on your side criticized. Suddenly though, it's a money saving deal. Woohoo!

    You're happy with Obama, like the 27%ers (I seriously do miss PressCoverage) were with George Bush.

    The center-right fell apart in 2006... hence how the elections went...

    Can you elaborate?

    (I'm not disagreeing with you at all -- just wondering what you mean, exactly.)
