Yes, we were so well-loved and fully trusted before that tyrant, George W. Bush took over.
    I am speaking from my experience and from what my grandfather/father have told me of theirs. Im my life time I have experienced this myself. France, Italy and Spain for a start. I also have may friends who travel and say the same. Its not some Liberal machine its my experience.

    If anyone else said this I would question them. But I feel that a Master Sergent has more experience than most ever will.

    It is civilian failure that leads us into war. And after they have elected to toss the military into what they screwed up, these same failures announce to the public that they will find a way out. In the mean time, the military they rode into war on, is just trying to win their wars. But our politicians want their undue and unearned credit don't they? So they gum up the works, make the military second guess itself in the middle of combat maneuvers, and seek ways to escape the war instead of win it. A lot of blood in Iraq was because politicians way back in the U.S. of A. decided that they knew better than men who spend their lives at their military craft. Fallujah II, Al Sadr, open borders.....all civilian "leadership."

    Just....get....the...hell....out.....of....the.... .way.
    It's a popular sentiment. And certainly, I would agree civilian leadership did in fact involve us in a couple of wars today that we did not need to be in. But I still wouldn't leave everything to the military. Sometimes you can win the war, and lose the aftermath, the future. If it were a football game, merely winning would be enough. But there has to be some consideration for after the fighting stops, and that has to be considered before it stops and not just after. Sure, civilian leaders can and have messed this up. But the responsibility is theres and not the militaries.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Peter, I'm not sure if you're trying to be humorous or not, so I'll assume you're not.

    Well.. that's pure BS, and in fact Democrats in the Senate asked for and got a second vote to authorize the pres to go to war. Our allies, and quasi allies all stated Saddam was a threat and had WMD. The Un stated it. HANS BLIX stated it.

    The only lie is the lie the left tried to propagate that Bush went to war on lies. In Britian top BBC execs lost their jobs for trying to make that "sexed up" claim.


    If you can not see that our current president is a promising intellectual...
    UPDATE: Promise was squandered. He's at best an economic illiterate, foreign relations joke, and all-around left wing hack.

    ...and that he is doing his best to fix the state of the nation
    We realize that, and that's why the electorate is active in stopping him. (See economic illiterate above).

    , than you are closing your eyes to the truth as you all have been doing for years.
    The biggest eye closing were the Journolists during the last election. Blind leading blind.

    To think that Obama is "trying to ruin our country" is a ridiculous slander
    Not really. Look at what he is trying to accomplish. Hence what many expect as a historic midterm election. Dems aren't going to the slaughter house because people see they are trying to ruin the country.

    and by no means does any evidence support this.
    2-years in office have proven otherwise.

    For the rest of eternity may president George W. Bush be remembered as the worst president to ever have weaseled his way into office.
    ROTFLOL... Bush was fortunate (country not) having such an incompetent, ideologue boob following him. Going to war is never an easy decision, and the Dems proved what traitors they are by voting to send troops to war and then sticking a knife in their back; in both instances... their vote to send troops to war, and then backstabbing them was due to... political expediency.

    Bush is polling on par with Obama; and Obama ain't done yet.

    .
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Another deranged, loaded poll from Conservative News Network. These people know no end of silliness.

    Given that The Obama has either continued or expanded all of the actions that GWB was supposedly so 'wrong' about - especially the deficits - there's really no way to argue that The Obama has been better Presdient than GWB.

    Responsibility is not something the Bush years were made of. The whole notion of deficit spending during economic expansions is a sign of that.
    I believe we were talking about how Bush didn't take responsibilty and blamed others the way Obama does. I asked for quotes.

    would be an interesting comparison. I'd bet that Obama has blamed Bush more in 2 years than Bush blamed Clinton in 8.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
