You do things and you live with the consequences.

    Believing the Iraq war was a good thing is inconsistent with the argument that our deficits are a very bad thing.
    Bull. I can believe anything I want. If I believe the money was well spent ridding the world of a dictator, that certainly doesn't mean I can't also talk about government waste.

    The question should be "How many Iraqi military thugs died in the Iraq War?".

    Not as many as civilians did.

    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.

    You're trying to say that the US murdered all those Iraqi civilians?

    First place, its not government waste that causes the debt/deficits.... its major programs, such as wars/tax cuts and entitlement programs.

    Second, you are free to believe anything you want..... you can believe the $1.7T spent removing a two bit dictator from power was well spent.... and you can believe our debt is out of control... you can believe these two things with the same credibility afforded a women that runs up the credit card on wild spending spree and then complains about the credit card bill (that credibility, of course, would be none).

    I'm saying very clearly that is we don't invade, those numbers don't die. Not even close. Not in the same universe of numbers. So we hold responsibility for what happened.

    I'm just trying to understand why Liberals are so anxious to take responsibility for this.

    Don't know about liberals, but fir it is because we are responsible. We invaded on a pretext, for no just reason, bring war to a people already suffering.

    Don't care if he was suffering. But I assume you mean the people under him. The answer is not to the extent they did during the war, and they are still suffering.
