Link? Come on, Philippe, no one accepts just a blind statement on an internet message board.

May we assume you accept the statement now Old Rocks? I'm going with some type of spin to ensue.

When Obama does it off budget it's acceptable....when Bush did it it's the end of the world.

If this is off budget, as the article indicates it is, then either that should be rectiifed, or the request dropped. If we spend the money, no matter for what, it should be on the budget.

Now is that clear enough for you jokers? And where were you fellows as Bush spent hundreds of billions off budget on a war based on lies?

Don't know what old rock you've been living under but the Afghan War was based on lies? The Iraq War was based on lies?

Not true. You were duped by the left wing media...but the Iraq War was justified and fully funded by the Democrats since it's inception.

and there's not a damn thing wrong with off budget spending. There are many contingencies that just cannot be planned for in a budget.

These idiots are upset that it takes funds away from their Social engineering experiments that aren't mandated by the Constitution, and that DOD however...*IS*.

In short? Their priorities are out of whack.

Lies is a bit strong, but certainly on things that were untrue. According to the Bush administration, Iraq had working nuclear weapons. We now know that's not true (I wouldn't say lie because I don't think the Bush administration knew this was the case.

and there's not a damn thing wrong with off budget spending. There are many contingencies that just cannot be planned for in a budget.

A lot of these "contingencies" are things you can plan for in advance. There's nothing wrong with "off-budget spending" as a category. The problem is not passing spending you know will occur, then passing it later "off-budget" to hide the cost.

Post your link that states the Bush Administration said Iraq had working nuclear weapons.

Guess all that talk of "don't wait until you see a mushroom cloud" was just idle chatter...

Whether or not the Iraq War was based on lies is questionable. We certainly didn't end up going there for the reasons we were told.

In your opinion it was justified. In mine and many others, it was not.

the millitary should cut The money from somewhere else if they want to spend it in Afganistan.
And Obama had better put it on budget if he is asking for it.

That's not the point...the point is lawmakers and Congress saw it as justified....to this very day.
