    FWIW, I think you make a reasonable argument in regards to waterboarding...several of the posts you made swayed my opinion a bit, particularly about how an interrogator may not know whether a method will work before it's used. And if there's one thing we know certain, it's that there are those who would stop at nothing to commit violence on the citizens of our country.

    If you gotta choose between using an unsavory or even illegal torture method and the lives of tens, hundreds or even thousands of innocents..well, it must be hell to the one who has to make that decision, but I can't claim I'd have chosen differently.

    Wanted to vote for McCain, but his off the cuff selection of Palin scared the bejeezus out of me. I like her, but in no way was she qualified to be VP. Maybe in 8 to 12 years...

    Unfortunately, Palin will never be ready. My plan was to vote for Bob Barr, but then Pelosi pissed me off so much with her grandstanding that I decided to vote for McCain instead. Since Barr had no chance, and since McCain was going to win Texas easily, I made my vote a political statement rather than a choice.

    I think she is a brighter and more articulate person than she appeared. But, I had to laugh when even my hardcore conservative parents told me at Christmas, "We just don't think she's that smart."

    I'm a huge McCain fan, I must confess.

    I WAS a huge fan of McCain, but that was years ago. He changed, and for the worse.

    This is so bad, so completely horrifying--that if you AREN'T angry, there is something wrong with you.

    If anything, the REPUBLICANS should be the angriest. I voted for a democrat for president for the first time, IN MY LIFE, in 2008.

    I abhor what Bush has done to my party.

    And yeah, I'm angry.
    And see I look at it as our government did not even slightly injury anybody by waterboarding so the mass hysteria is bewildering. I've heard more hysterical screaming about waterboarding than techniques that actually have killed people accidentally! Totally irrational.

    Anyway you can be angry, mad as hell even, but no more telling other posters to pull their head out of their ass. You gotz to be civil!

    I lost a lot of respect for him when he spoke at Bob Jones U.

    Actually, we did injure somebody. We injured US. I have no sympathy for terrorists. But, this country stands for something. And this episode has tarnished what people have died to protect. That's serious.

    We waterboarded 3 enemy combatants. 3. The waterboarding did not physically harm them in any way. Left no mark on them. Your hysteria is completely unwarranted.
