    I'm not pretending to say that it wouldn't be political suicide. However, it hurts (and I mean that) to know that my life and the lives of the Marines that I've lost are not as important as some politician getting a vote. Our Congress has allowed itself to be neutered. They are responsible, solely responsible, for that. Wars don't happen without money. Congress controls the money. Shame on them

    "Every single Republican presidential candidate (except Ron Paul) condemned Obama for ending the war and not leaving thousands of U.S. troops in Iraq indefinitely. The GOP field hasn’t persuaded much of anyone.


    That includes Mitt Romney, by the way, who called the end of U.S. mission in Iraq an “astonishing failure.” Romney, it turns out, was for the war, then unwilling to state a position on the war, then against the war. This is the same Republican presidential hopeful who once said he’d “set a deadline for bringing the troops home” from Iraq — but only if it’s a secret deadline; said it’s “entirely possible” that Saddam Hussein hid weapons of mass destruction in Syria prior to the 2003 invasion; and made the bizarre assertion that IAEA weapons inspectors were not allowed entry into Saddam Hussein’s Iraq."

    Political Animal - GOP rhetoric on Iraq fails to persuade

    Yeah, that's a good example of why I personally find Mr. Romney eh. Consistency is not a word that one would use to describe him.

    You lie. That wasn't your point. Your "point" is to mouth foam nonsensically.

    yes, they have allowed themselves to be neutered, democrat and republican alike. And contempt for this is proper. But the decision to go to war was Bush's and Bush's alone. I've fine with shame on all of them, but I think we need to be clear on what they have to be ashamed of.

    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.

    As supported by rich Saudi donors. Most of the suicide bombers in Iraq were also Saudi.
