    All your silly sarcasm and facepalming might go over big in the basement, but up here, where the adults talk, you better come up with a real rebuttal.

    Why don't you actually try to debate the points I made...???

    The liar and failure vs. the current CIC.

    Rummy, Cheney and therefore Bush did not have the respect of the military commanders. That trickles down to the soldiers. Iraq was FUBAR. 4,000 needless deaths because of a weakling being manipulated by his V.P. and other advisors with various agendas. By the time Bush realized how bad he had screwed up, Iraq was overrun with insurgents, the oil fields and contracts where not paying off, the debt was piling up... You think the soldiers were not aware of how far their cic had mislead them??

    The Peter Principle = "in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence" -- Incompetence trickles down. Bush had so many bad advisors pushed on him, so many bad agendas, he wasn't bright enough to see he was being manipulated by very powerful business interests. First term was textbook puppetry.

    Re: Obama - the reaction Sunday night outside the WH and at Ground Zero says it all. We have a CIC who actually leads.

    The more he makes of it the more he adds to the mythology and folklore of usama bin laden.


    You kill the enemy without emotion and you move on. Obl was a dispicable human being. Why give him the pomp and circumstance over and over again.
    Are you saying your offended that he is going to NYC?

    I'm not registered as a Dem or Rep... But as an independent, I have to say, your response, not wanting to take a stand or get on someone's bad side is pretty representative of the current Dems.

    I would have loved to see both Bush and Obama standing at ground zero, shaking hands and congratulating each other on job well done. Bring the country toward a pragmatic unified middle. I'm disappointed that Bush didn't see that potential.

    I think GOP advisors told Bush not to go -- so close to an election year -- again, Bush did what he was told.

    I'm pretty sure that the GOP isn't a position to tell Bush what to do, and I'm pretty sure he knows it.

    He's been laying low pretty much this whole time, so it's not like he's suddenly changing his tune or anything.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    the opportunity did arise........but obama took a huge chance in ordering the operation. i give him credit for having the balls to order it.......

    the end result is obama ordered a risky operation without consideration of what failure would have done to him politically.
