    GOP Bush and Dem Congress took us to war together (there was a vote, right?). Do you only blame the dealer who sold you drugs for your addiction, or do you blame yourself equally for accepting the drugs?

    so what you are telling me is that is perfectly fine for a President to lie to the American people under oath or color of his office.


    no need to go any further... we won't agree on lying being a good thing.
    All politicians lie. Only the naive and the dishonest deny that

    But honest, intelligent people can recognize the difference between lying about a personal issue like sex, and lying about the need for a war that killed thousands of american soldiers and wasted trillions of our dollars

    If the dealer got a child addicted to drugs, is it the childs fault?

    Dems in Congress voted for IWR based on the lies that bush* and his administration told.

    Good plan you've got there!
    did i say more tax cuts for the rich or more deregulation?

    I didn't give any details ...why attempt to make some up for me?

    tax cuts didn't get us where we are... some deregulation efforts did, however....as well as a few incredibly educated folks who changed risk management forever.

    but , meh, that's all way beyond the idiotic GOP v Dems partisan battle, so i'm sure you aren't interested.

    The majority of congressional Democrats voted against the war in Iraq. 247 voted nay, and 111 voted aye.

    You know, if we're gonna have politicians lying about stuff, I think I'd rather have them lying about a blowjob than lying about the reasons for going to war.

    Tax cuts certainly did help get us to the point where the rich own 85% of the wealth. Its not a partisan issue. It is the fact that our economy cannot thrive when we have so much wealth concentrated at the top.

    sure thing...

    then there's the matter of whether Bush lied, or whether he was just wrong.
    that question does not arise in regards to Clinton.. Clinton absolutely lied... under oath.

    on the long list of reasons to go after Iraq, only the question of WMD is in contention.... but it wasn't in contention back them, there was widespread, bipartisan, agreement on the issue... if Bush was lying, most of DC was right there spewing those lies before he ever came on scene.
    I'm more of the mind that they were all simply wrong about WMD's and none were lying.

    i've been through enough iraq war debates though... i don't think we need ot go through them again.

    No, deregulation and lax regulation were the cause of the recession, but recovering from the recession requires that the middle class has money to create the demand needed by industry to be productive, and to pay taxes to help reduce the deficit.
