NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
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.

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Who said Bush was awesome? He just wasn't as bad as you and others claim and the facts support me.Glinda;1058490030]Let's face it, nothing GW Bush did or does is ever going to make you say **** about him.
BEA.gov, BLS.gov. paint a different picture as does my bank accountAs 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.
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.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?
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."Fully?" So you think Bush used our presence Afghanistan as little more than a stepping stone to invade and occupy Iraq, too?
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.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.
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 a country that funded, harbored, and supported terrorism and was working on WMD was the right and prudent thing to do.Invading and occupying another nation that was no real threat to the US is "politically correct?" Who knew?
You mean like the excuses in the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998? Did you read the resolution passed by Congress in October 2002?Riiight. That's why Bush invaded Iraq. But what about the rest of the excuses the Bush administration offered for invading Iraq?
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.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...
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?
GW Bush could do wrong by me and did on Immigration Reform and the TARP bailout.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.
On National security and most of the economy he did well and that is why I voted for him twice.

"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
