    I thank your family members for their service, but just because they served, and they think it was right, doesn't make it right.
    You raised the issue of Iraq that you would never forgive Bush and Blair for doing that and I asked a legitimate question which of course you didn't answer. So again, how did Iraq hurt you or your family. Interesting how anecdotal bull**** can now be added to actual economic results to the list of things Obama supporters don't want mentioned. Please provide me with a few things you believe are appropriate to discuss in this forum that you feel are appropriate? Thanks in advance.

    No one has yet thanked Anthony Weiner for his gift ... it shows how one so arrogant comes undone by his own preconceived sharing of his greatness with the ladies on the internet. Truly his fall should be studied by future politicians as an example of lies and vanity.


    Vanity. Defiantly my favorite sin....

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Basically, a tea party guy won one of the safest Democratic districts in the country. And it was entirely about Obama, liberalism, and their collective impact on the economy.

    New Yorkers must truly be scared out of their ever-loving minds.

    Why do you have to bring my, or your families into it?

    The two claims were, Saddam was involved with Al Queada, and he had weapons of mass destruction.

    Niether were true, we invaded for nothing, I lost countrymen needlessly because of it and that means alot to me. Maybe you can live with that because Bush had a (R) next to his name, but I don't have to. If it hadn't of been for Iraq, I'd have nothing against Bush.

    Please provide me with a list of things the Republicans have done since 2007 when the Democrats took control of the Congress. NY 9 has a 4-1 ratio of Democrats to Republicans and many of those Democrats pulled the lever for a Republican for the first time in their life. Do you honestly believe that this wasn't a referendum on Obama? Do you know who Wall Street supported in 2008 with their wallets? Seems according to you the People's interest are businesses like Solyndra, Federal Spending for state responsibility issues like teachers, firefighters, and police, expanding Medicaid and Unemployment Insurance. How is it in the people's interest to fund those programs indefinitely and increasing the burden on the states when the federal taxpayer money runs out?

    Does Iraq have to "hurt you or your family" before one can properly critique it? We're broke and we're spending ridiculous money on Iraq. How much already? We've never had a war last this long, we've more than doubled our losses from 9/11 which this is all supposed to be about somehow, we've destroyed countries and people and furthered anti-American sentiments in an area already hostile to us because of our (the West in general) intervention.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Doesn't matter what you think today but keep diverting from the question I raised. We are now losing a country because of Obama who is making the lives lost there mean very little. I am still waiting for what Bush did to you or your family that caused this hatred. My belief is that if Bush had a D after his name you would have supported it. The Iraq Liberation Act was signed in 1998 by Clinton and the Democrats controlled the Senate when the resolution was passed giving Bush the authorization. The fact remains, Democrats want the issue which you continue to buy or they would have brought impeachment charges against Bush but because they wanted the issue and not the trial that speaks volumes. Too many Democrats on record in video and documented quotes supporting the Bush actions even before Bush took office. Simple fact that liberals ignore.

    Now none of that has anything to do with the thread topic as this 4-1 Democrat controlled District went 54-46 for a Republican. That is huge.

    He had a year to move whatever WMD he had while we screwed around with the UN. Clinton was convinced he had them, too. ALL THE INTELLIGENCE suggested he did. Bush was acting on that very same intelligence.

    But beyond that, consider this.

    The future of this effed-up part of the world is going to be violent within, and if they have their way, hostile toward us and the rest of the non-Islam nations.

    And now, we have a military base established right smack dab in the middle of the whole cockroach-infested region. We can fight them there, on their soil, indefinitely. History will show that to be not only brilliant, but perhaps the salvation of the planet.

    No, I will not limit my critique of the party's control and influence to the time frame you want to try to make yourself look good. Your side sucks just as well. You want to limit what I can say? Why? Because you know when the R's were in charge, they were just as bad. What have Republicans done since 2007? Run obstructionist campaigns on nothing more than partisan BS. We couldn't even have an honest debate on healthcare. Socialism this and death panel. How long did Republicans hold us hostage to get tax cuts for the rich to stick? You want to run your mouth about funding Medicaid or Unemployment when we're broke? How the hell do you run an expansive international war when you're broke? Huh? How do you keep handing out money like its candy to places like Israel when we're broke? If we're cutting funding because we're broke, I will cut funding for each and every asshole out there BEFORE I would consider cutting any support for American people.

    I got a better question. Since 2007, what have Republicans done FOR us?
