    I agree the present and the future are pretty damn important..so why is it that the only justification the Right can give for acting like assholes today is to lamely give the excuse that it's ok because some dems have done it in the PAST.
    The past is only useful to the people on the right when all realities off Bush and Cheney's lies and deception are withdrawn from the reality of the past and they can only talk about it in terms that suits their needs.

    They need to take responsibility for the own actions today and quit trying to justify it by pointing out some on the lefts PAST actions.

    Bush is the cause of a major portion of everything that is going on with the war on terror and the ecomony. TODAY...

    President Oblamea is just the conservatives fallguy. They have to blame somebody but themselves as they always have for the nations problems that were handed down to the new American President from the last anti-American, self-serving President and VP.

    Oblamea will surely earn his critisizms as Bush did i'm sure...but he hasn't earned them yet.

    So you guys just keep on blaming on....it only makes the Right look even more foolish.

    There first step out of the sewer is being able to take responsibility for their own failures and quit blaming them on everybody else including our new President.

    The GOP and GW were given the keys to the kingdom with no opposition from the dems, so they went to Iraq and created a fiasco.

    In a nut shell, we went there without the opposing party questioning it, granted we'd probably be in Iraq anyways because the Dems didn'th have the votes, but maybe we'd of slowed down and required more accurate intelligence.
    Unfortunately.........Allot of truth in what you say!!

    We Dems could have also stopped funding the war (after 2006) & impeached Bush & Cheney. I hold Spkr. Pelosi & Harry Reid responsible for not having the guts to do the right thing! (They should both be run out of office)

    His question was "How many came out with accusations", and you answered with "nothing's been proven". That does not answer his question. Many have come out since Bush was replaced by Obama, effectively decreasing his power and the fears that he would come after anyone who spoke out. It certainly is interesting that some seem to think that all of these individuals are lying.

    You are absolutely correct!!!!!!!!!!!! (about the impeachment) We need to finish our obligation and finish our commitment to Iraq. I don't want another Vietnam. This nation chose to go to war, this nation needs to stomach the war.

    It really depends on the Iraqi Government. We can hold our part of the bargain, but unless they step up, the war effort will fail anyway. And we'll look badly at it in the future. Same thing in Afghanistan.

    I find it hard to criticize some one for not trying to do something that would have been futile.
