    Actually, there were many that voiced opposition to the way it was handled.

    Because he's half black. We don't hate the white half. Just the black half.

    But no one complained that Saddam was ousted. Correct?

    Yes, by Saddam supporters, and those trying to undermine Bush. All in all, not a very honest group.

    Let's just take a look at a few things here:

    Bush come into office with a budget surplus, a relatively healthy economy, growing GDP, and a combination of regulation and oversight that allowed the banks to prosper without getting out of had.

    Bush then de-regulated banking enough to change oversight, took the surplus and reversed it into the largest deficit we have ever seen, took us into two wars while lowering the tax based income to the fed, and presided over the beginning of recession.

    I think that certainly indicates that Bush had a very heavy hand in bringing the recession on.

    Sure they were, sure they were. Did you come to that conclusion through the aid of a tinfoil hat as well?

    Yep, those had to be the ONLY two reasons to be against the war. And you say you want serious debate?
