    Yeah, we can afford to flush several trillion dollars down the toilet on war spending.

    I think they call that a "Freudian slip".

    Never open to letting facts trickle through their cast iron skulls.

    No intellectual curiosity. Not even from the guy who was running the show.

    You might want to read the constitution.

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    Only a fool could justfy wasting trillions in the phoney name of defence.

    You've proven that you have abolutely no understanding of our constitution.
    BTW, look up the word 'promote'.

    Glinda;1058490030]Let's face it, nothing GW Bush did or does is ever going to make you say **** about him.
    Who said Bush was awesome? He just wasn't as bad as you and others claim and the facts support me.

    As for myself, Mr. Bush never did anything that I found worthy of supporting. I do think he's been an entirely excellent former president, however.
    BEA.gov, BLS.gov. paint a different picture as does my bank account

    Bottom line here, you're completely wrong about your insistence that no resources were diverted from Afghanistan to attack Iraq. Do you ever research the junk you spew before spewing it?
    The U.S. Military can walk and chew gum at the same time. Resources were diverted to Iraq but were replaced by NATO. You remember NATO? The left wanted an international contingent there and Bush gave them one.


    "Fully?" So you think Bush used our presence Afghanistan as little more than a stepping stone to invade and occupy Iraq, too?
    Does it matter now? By a huge majority the Congress authorized Iraq and for that say it was because of Bush lies, that is a lie. Congress had the same intelligence as Bush.

    Nope. Unlike some, who believe our invading forces will be "greeted as liberators," I'm realistic about wars. I recognize not only that innocent people will die, but also that you can't split up your resources and expect to achieve any sort of realistic success on two separate and unrelated fronts. You either go in with everything you've got and stay there till the job is done, or you fail.
    Hindsight is always 20/20 but so is reacting. You can blame Bush for civilian deaths but then fail to acknowledge the rules of engagement in Iraq designed to prevent civilian deaths.

    You can also ignore how brutal Saddam Hussein and his sons were and ignore what they would be like with sanctions removed. Think we could have kept sanctions forever? What then?

    Invading and occupying another nation that was no real threat to the US is "politically correct?" Who knew?
    Invading and occupying a country that funded, harbored, and supported terrorism and was working on WMD was the right and prudent thing to do.

    Riiight. That's why Bush invaded Iraq. But what about the rest of the excuses the Bush administration offered for invading Iraq?
    You mean like the excuses in the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998? Did you read the resolution passed by Congress in October 2002?

    We've got the ZOMG! Weapons of Mass Destruction! rationale, the ZOMG! Iraqi Links to Terrrist Organizations! rationale, the Combating Terrrizm! rationale, the Bringing Democracy to the Middle East rationale, the Establishing a Long-term Middle East Military Presence rationale, the Divine Inspiration rationale, the Preemption of Terrrist Ties rationale...

    I have posted the links here supporting those contentions along with the Democrat responses supporting those contentions. It was a bipartisan agreement to do it.

    Now here we are 8 years after that decision and 7 years after the invasion and you and others are still bitter over it. Why? I had three family members serve in Iraq for at least a year and they said we did the right thing. What is it you know that they don't?

    He can do no wrong with you, so why should anyone try to convince you he's not as awesome as you believe?

    I'll tell you why. Because a closed mind is a terrible thing to have.
    GW Bush could do wrong by me and did on Immigration Reform and the TARP bailout.

    On National security and most of the economy he did well and that is why I voted for him twice.

    Somehow the word promote to a liberal means provide yet these are the ones who claim that conservatives are not very bright.

    No. First off, neoconservatives are hard to pin down. Second of all, some foreign policy neoconservatives for one reason or another (and we can list numerous reasons) have been critical of the George W. Bush administration (during its action) for its handling of the Iraq war. Third of all, remember that foreign policy neoconservatives were supportive of the Clinton administration's efforts in the Balkans. Fourth, many foreign policy neoconservatives were applauding on the notion that the Obama administration was to provide extensive support of the Afghanistan campaign (now, we cannot deny that various speakers were critical during the iffy moments in the past year). It is not quite as if once the Democrat gets into power, neoconservatives shut off their support or criticism.
