    LOL....if GWB had actually gotten the job done, you would be the first one here proclaiming what an amazing and incredible world leader he is....but since Obama doesn't have an (R) behind his name you can't stand giving him the credit that is due to him. Face it NP....your hero had 8 years to get the job done, but he wasn't focused and spent too much time being a "war" President than actually accomplishing something. Obama did in 3 years what your clown couldn't get done in almost a decade.

    The effort to find, fix and finish bin Laden was the work of a decade and spanned both administrations. Both Presidents can justifiably claim credit, but most belongs to the patient, dedicated professionals.

    BTW....Was it Obama that took a victory lap and stood on the deck of an aircraft carrier with a sock stuffed down his pants claiming "Mission Accomplished" prematurely?...aaaaaaa...hmmmmm....wait....I think that was another President. My bad.

    The former quote was to mislead the enemy, pure and simple. The effort to track down bin Laden never flagged.
    The latter quote is not one any thinking person should dispute.

    Stop at Hillary. You listed others. Do I really have to link the post I responded to?

    I showed one of the three spoke specifically that Saddam did not meet the threat that required invasion outside the UN. No one voted for war. No declaration of war. They voted to let Bush decide. He and he alone decided.

    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.

    So they simply voted to give Bush a blank check without knowing what it would go towards?

    Yes. Remember back. Those who resisted loudest lost their seats. Congress cowardly passed the buck, plain and simple. Most democrats have been largely quoted out of context, snoopers looked at those quotes most throw out and notes while those words were said, they were largely in the context of arguing not to invade.

    Re: Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein?

    Why talk about context of what they said when there is a clear vote for the Iraq Resolution.....that's all you need. And do you have a list of all of these people drummed out of office for not voting for the war, and proof of it?
