    Liberals just don't think, they feel. What they don't want to understand is that if Bush lied they could have impeached him but didn't because they knew that their quotes would have been used against them. Liberals do what they always do, grab the issue and ignore the substance and facts. This is always about controling the issue, calling Bush a liar and yet never thinking about all the quotes from those same liberals.

    It is a good way to get an alternate view. From reading the various posts it appears that only senior members of the Administration were briefed. That is exactly as it should be.

    Although I worked in the intelligence field for most of my Army 20 year career I was not connected to any agency that briefed the Congress or the President and his senior Administration staff.

    I have a bad feeling about our future. Either way it may already be too late to escape the socialism we are already mired in.
    The Union survived eight years of Bush/Cheney (although the economy was a train wreck at the end).... but if it could survive that, its hard to believe that it would not survive eight years on any particular POTUS.

    Correction, it WAS the intelligence community, until Bush sanctioned a hack political group that bypassed the intelligence community for the express purpose of disseminating unreliable information.

    Usually I am very optimistic. In this cased I believe we started out very near the tipping point. Today I believe we may be beyond it.

    The same could be said for every person who ascribes to the mindless nonsense of the two party system. Or for that matter, those people who actually believe the mass media.

    I am going to make a bold prediction: If Obama is re-elected, 4 years from now we would not be able to talk about what to do in this country, because we'd be destroyed, and living in some kind of one world government.

    I'll bet you ten thousand dollars that won't be the case.

    At the rate that Obama is devaluing the dollar you probably have a chance at collecting that much wothless script.
