    Your hypocrisy is hilarious. He RAN on that platform, ending the wars, closing Gitmo, um what else did he lie about?

    And who said democrats were liberal?
    I was referring to you. I specifically said that, and your lean says "liberal."

    Of course you are. You attribute all bad stuff in Iraq to the US, as if things would have been perfect without an invasion. It's dishonest crap based upon some psychotic idea that when someone does something they become responsible for everything thereafter.

    He actually did what he ran on. Before he was elected, he accepted the Iraqi timeline. And he said he'd focus in Afghanistan. He tried to close Gitmo, that failure belongs to democrats in congress.

    Lean. Lean liberal. Few of us are 100% anything. I'm also Catholic, former military, and quite a few other things. I voted for Dole over Clinton, and a lot for Grassley in Iowa. Arguing stereotypes may be easier, but less accurate.

    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.

    No, just responsible for what happened. No invasion, no 100 k plus deaths. It's really simple.

    Saddam killed over 50k per year, averaging just the big stuff over his dictatorship.

    Good point. I remember reading about how some Iraqis had stabbed him and poked him with sticks after he was dead, so it's not like he was the beloved dictator or anything. They hated him.

    I have no desire to equate Iraq with the Axis Powers of WWII, but how is denying that Iraq was violating the cease fire and firing on Coalition aircraft not a kind of dishonesty?

    No such killing was going on at the time of the invasion. In fact, it hadn't for some time. As one Iraqi stated prior to the war, invading would just start the killing again. The Iraqi was correct. That's why HWR wrote an excellent paper on why our invasion was immoral. What we did was ad injury to injury.

    What's dishonest is equating that to WWII Germany. Pissing in the wind isn't equal to a power that had the world on the brink.
