    I'd actually like to see an investigation into the Iraq War... The British put Tony Blair on trial and demanded answers. In America, we look the other way. It's kind f**ked up IMO.

    Banks aren't collapsing left and right, and the stock market is fairly stable given we are coming out of a recession, so I'd have to disagree... It's not perfect, but it's not as bad as it was. We got through the worst of it already.

    2009 111th D D - 55 D - 256
    2007 110th R D - 51 D - 233
    2005 109th R R - 55 R - 232
    2003 108th R R - 51 R - 229
    2001 107th R D* R - 221
    1999 106th D R - 55 R - 223
    * There were 50 Ds and 50 Rs until May 24, 2001, when Sen. James Jeffords (R-VT) switched to Independent status, effective June 6, 2001; he announced that he would caucus with the Democrats, giving the Democrats a one-seat advantage.
    108th and 109th Congress was R and so was the President. The Iraq war resolution was from 10-2002, so that would have been a R President/D Senate/R House. I would bet that the R President didn't threaten to veto the bill and that the R House never filibustered over the issue.

    what is more important to 'you, personally?

    Blaming Bush for the last fiasco, or getting Obama to solve the current fiasco?

    It's equally important to hold people accountable as it is to fix the problem..

    for the current situation yes, I agree. However, it seems quite a few liberal leaning posters here think blaming Dubbya for his mess is more important than addressing the current one.

    Funny how the extreme left only can blame Bush after two plus years with total control.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
