    Yes, but will he lose *all* of your votes? Or just one among many of them? Will he also lose the dead vote? I understand that Democrats typically get about 80% of the dead, year after year. And what about the illegal alien vote? Democrats historically get 95% of the illegal alien vote. And the felon vote?

    If the Congress funds the effort and does not prohibit it then I guess the one term president Obama has himself a splendid little war.

    LOL. President Bush didn't lie. You are so funny. Partisan. But funny. And the one term president Obama believes he is our king. Why shouldn't he do as he wishes?

    Well maybe. Unlikely though. Democrats control the Senate. He will get a pass.

    Why should he obey the law? But I do stand with your sentiment that in 2012 it may be good enough to be Anybody But Obama.

    You do realize you are acting just like some liberals acted when Bush was president right. Some liberals called Bush King Gorge II and such. Do you think it is more justified when you do it?

    The State Department used to be the most anti-American of the departments. Now, I think it is a tie between EPA and State with Education following close behind. State has always had a problem because it often sided with foreign countries over US interests. Or so it seems to me.

    Of course. LOL. They were wrong. I, fortunately, am right. :-)

    Do you have any evidence that Bush deliberately and knowingly told a falsehood regarding WMDs in Iraq or are you engaging in expected partisan hackery?

    I don't get the problem. He hasn't broken any rules. He'll dump it on NATO within ~20 days and request funding from congress to honor the treaty via money (and perhaps in-country trainers, just to stick it to congress but they'll reject that) supporting a new Brit drone program.

    Me? In a former life I was an intelligence officer. I know just how hard it is to take the technical data, make sense of it, avoid being deceived, and provide good information to decision makers. I believe, quite the opposite of your assertion, that S. Hussein himself was deceived by his people. No one wants to have his daughters raped, in the infamous rape rooms with their mountains of panties, or their wives tortured by being slowly fed into a wood chipper...No. None of his people would tell him something he did not want to hear. He believed he had biological and chemical weapons. And we believed him.

    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
