    Let's see.. leaders around the world believed Saddam had WMD.
    Hans Blix thought he had WMD.
    Congress going back to Clinton thought he had WMD.
    There were terrorists in Iraq.
    Saddam did not disarm.
    He threw out weapon inspectors.
    He got a lot of cash selling oil illegally and corrupting the UN in one massive corruption scandal.

    Senate Demokrats asked for and got a second vote to support the war.

    Woodward in his book witnessed Bush grilling Tenet...

    So sad to watch people deny themselves the truth... and for what? To defend a perverted ideology.
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Re: Obama vs. Nixon

    Is this another OMG OBAMA SUCKS topic? The dude is above average as a president.

    But he's no Nixon. Probably the most savvy president about international relations the US has ever had. And since that's the main realm of of the executive branch...I'm a Nixon fan.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    You are correct, it was when he was running in 1968.

    Assuming I watch Fox is hilarious as well. Your username fits.
    A. Only to partisans. In reality expanding medicare costs the government more money than demanding everyone carry insurance.

    B. Education "reform"...talk about hilarious.

    Ah, you're talking about this secret plan to win the war which he didn't have.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nixon began detente and one has to wonder if not for Watergate where that would have led to.

    There's nothing to deflect - you're so desperate you're try to bring Obama to the lowest level of American politics by comparing him to Republican scum.

    If not for Watergate, Muskie runs against him in 72 instead of McGovern, and Nixon never sees a second term.

    Muskie fell victim to inferior organizing, an over-reliance on party endorsements, and Nixon's "dirty tricks" operatives,[160][161][162] and in the March 7, 1972, New Hampshire primary, did worse than expected with McGovern coming in a close second.[163] As Muskie's campaign funding and support dried up, Hubert Humphrey, who had rejoined the Senate, became McGovern's primary rival for the nomination,[164] with Alabama governor George Wallace also in the mix after dominating the March 14 primary in Florida.
