    Mark my words-going down as the worst ever.

    As Obama has so clearly demonstrated, liberalism and reality are like water and oil.

    Greetings, Swit.

    BHO should have tried bargaining, since those people love to haggle - it's in their blood, I think! I believe Maliki was disappointed when Obama said okay and left. Took all the fun out of it, and left him in a bad position as it turned out. Now we're back and it's worse than before! Sheesh!!

    Still dodging. Care to answer what the "right thing to do" is in Iraq? I doubt you have anything but I'll find it fun still asking it of you.

    Actually it's not.

    Are you still unaware that Obama said Iraq was "stable" when he pulled the troops out of Iraq and that Biden said it was the Administration's 'greatest achievement'?

    No kidding. Do you still not know that?

    Worse than before is actually what Obama meant by hope and change.

    [QUOTE=Grant;1063621181]9/11 occurred after the elections and both Republicans and Democrats voted for the invasion of Iraq..[/QUOTEru

    It was Bush's bright idea to respond to 9/11 by invading Iraq. The fact that it was approved by Congress, with some Democratic support, does not mean squat. A true functioning board of directors (Congress... not like what we have now, but the way they generally functioned for our first 220 years of existence) generally provides advice and consent, it does not run show. Going into Iraq was the doing of the Bush Administration; congress simply chose not to stop them.

    So you are advocating for MORE executive control and less from Congress? Why do you hate checks and balances?

    Actually it means a great deal.

    A true functioning board of directors (Congress... not like what we have now, but the way they generally functioned for our first 220 years of existence) generally provides advice and consent, it does not run show.

    In fact they chose to support the decision. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5p-qIq32m8
