    I meant show me where I said what you claimed I said.
    Besides ... Obama didn't sign off on a SOFA with Maliki, did he?
    But in fairness he really shone on Oprah's sofa ... he's really good at schmoozing his fans.

    More nonsense from the right. I'm shocked. When you guys have been on the wrong side of EVERY major issue facing the US since it's founding, why am I shocked

    I was addressing the notion (maybe not yours) that we should only worry about terrorism against the USA mainland ... that notion has been promulgated by some ... granted, it's usually in defense of Obama withdrawing from the war on terror, but nonetheless, there it is.

    Given that, yes, there are M.E. and other infiltrators crossing our open border ... and that was even before what's happening now ... and in that way, establishing a terrorist state, or 2 or 3, in the M.E. from which to launch attacks against our mainland - especially if they're already here.

    You're not shocked ... you just have nothing to respond with ... it's more like you're flummoxed.

If Bush would never have wanted to war with Iraq, none of this would be happening.

    Hussein was a brutal dictator but at least he kept those terrorists in check and didn't put up with too much crap, he simply offed them, his intolerance to crap was astonishing. Malaki is such a weak leader.

    This ain't the first time the USA has installed a leader who failed. Probably won't be the last either.
    There would not have been many ambushes or attacks because we wouldn't have been doing the patrolling. Regardless how we got there, this was a victory now thrown away.

    How about one policy the GOP has been correct about and it worked as promised the passed 40 years?
    In House and Senate, greater percentages of Repubs than Dems voted for the 1964 CRA.

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Senate version, voted on by the House:[19]

    Democratic Party: 15391 (6337%)
    Republican Party: 13635 (8020%)
    Are you saying that the 80% of Republicans that voted for it were wrong?

    I was in favor of a war tax after 9/11.

    True, I've known for decades CONservatives have NEVER been on the correct side of ANY US policy that worked!
