    Not an evil dick, but an arrogant one.

    soccerboy,

    Find another way? Like what?

    Suppose there was no other way, what would you do?

    Re: Former President George W. Bush: We waterboarded Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

    I watched a video of that journalist, Pearl, having his head slowly sawed off by terrorists. He was terrified, and before his head ever came off he went from screaming to making inhuman-sounding croaking noises.


    Seeing that video put an upper limit on how much sympathy I have for poor widdle terrorists who got waterboarded, especially considering we waterboard our own soldiers to toughen them up against interrogation in SERE training.

    I don't know, but all I do know is I am not willing nor can I ever torture some one.

    So far three posters have resorted to childish name-calling.

    Bush is a piece of trash (ADK).

    Bush is an arrogant dick (NextEra).

    Bush is an ignorant dick (liblady).

    This kind of behavior adds nothing to the discussion. It's also indicative of a double standard since these folks would probably rush to condemn similar name-calling if it were directed at President Obama.

    This kind of behavior should stop. It's childish and inflammatory.

    soccerboy,

    You wouldn't subject someone to waterboarding in order to save your family? I find that extremely hard to believe.

    The problem with Bush is not his personality, but his policy. Always best to focus on the policy, which was lacking on a lot of fronts. The issue of torture is just one wrong sided effort his administration made.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Nope I could not physically or mentally bring myself to waterboard some one. It just is not part of me.
