    Just because you don't like it doesn't make it not what happened. There was no vote for war. None. Bush just got to decide. You should read more.

    As is to be expected, you sprinkle in a little truth amongst your boo boo.

    There was no vote for war-there was a vote for military action in Iraq. And it was not simply "decided" by bush because of that vote.

    There wasn't that either. Such a vote would have been followed by action, and not a building of the coalition of the willing. Instead, they merely passed the buck to Bush, allowing the decider to decide and not congress.

    Feinstein even came out yestersay and specifically defended Hillary, who wasn't even mentioned..

    (asides from the attack was caused by the video, which is patently false - known in the first few minutes it WAS a terror attack)
    Of course they could have been prevented, as could many attacks on The US in times past.

    Again false, and revisionist at that. This was NOT simply Bush acting alone as much as you'd like to paint that picture.
    Id ask for evidence to back your claim-but you never seem to be able to provide that, instead hiding behind amorphous comments like "check the speeches".

    I'd hope you'd aspire to a higher standard.

    He decided. No one else.

    For years I linked Kerry's speech. The talk would start and then later there'd be a new thread, same people asking for the same speech. After a while, you have to figure you guts just don't want to know the truth. Now, as were this far down the road, iM not inclined to cover that same ground fir people who refuse to learn or know. You, people who link that out of context list of democrat quotes. Such people don't really want the truth.

    That people would actually buy into this nonsense strongly suggests that both Clinton and Obama understand how foolishly naive their supporters must be.
    They are every bit as naive as Bush supporters were.

    That's what partisans are .. naive.
