    if you don't like my posts, don't read them. and of course, afghanistan is right ON topic as we are engaged in war there, right now, and we were discussing the me. we were not discussing obama. i'm beginning to think you like me, j-mac. you sure seem to read my posts very thoroughly.

    No, it doesn't. Congress did not declare war and the UN did not sanction our invasion. These are facts. Sorry.

So whiel I don't agree with much of Obama's action in Afghanistan, it isn't like he took over a good situation and drove it down hill. In fact, he rightly brought the focus back to that country. it may well have been too little too late, but i wouldn't absolve Bush of all blame. After all, his actions were his actions.

    First of all how is it 'off topic' to address a direct quote from another member?

    Second, 'Blame it on Bush'? Really? that's all you got? Any reasonable person would have to say at this point that with responses like that, debating the issue with people like you is a useless exercise.

    To discuss Afghanistan and leave the current Commander n Chief out of the discussion is not only void of reality, but disingenuous to the extreme.

    I have no problem with you liblady, I don't know you. Just as you don't know me, however, whether or not I enjoy jousting with you on these boards is what is really off topic here. You accuse me of injecting an off topic remark, when the whole thread is on how Obama says he doesn't need Congress to approve his actions in Lybia, and YOU injected Afghanistan into the discussion.

    This really is some kind of alternate universe you libs live in isn't it?

    yeah, but we weren't discussing afghanistan per se. you just felt the need to bash obama, as you always do. that's ok, it must suck to be impotent.

    Bush is to blame for what Bush is to blame for. He doesn't get a pass just because his term ended. He did lose focus, choosing to go on the snipe hunt. It left Afghanistan in a bad position. This is simply fact.

    Says the guy from the general group of people who think a "thug" rapper performed at the white house recently, that Obama's suggestion for Israel is substantially different from Bush or Clinton's, that global warming stopped in 1995, and that rich people hire new employees based solely on the number of dollars in their pocket.

    (none of these things are true)

    "Afghanistan is right ON topic", "we are engaged in a war there right now" and yet we cannot discuss, President Obama, the current leader of that war?

    That seems odd.

    So you agree that Obama needs no congressional approval under the war powers act for Lybia, but also agree that Bush did need it....There is a word for that ma'am, hyp......
