    I don't like to beat on Bush. It's old. But lets stop pretending that Carter, Obama, etc. are in the same league as him just because they're Democrats. They're not. Bush was a horrible, disastrous president. If you supported him, you were hoodwinked. Just accept it, and go back to bashing Obama over edited memos.

    That's fine. I'll go on assuming my definition is correct.

    I didn't say anything about Carter or Obama. I didn't say anything about political parties. I don't know what edited memo you're talking about. I have no idea why you posted this to me.

    Clinton and his administration said Iraq had WMDs. So did many high ranking Democrats.

    Your statements are factually wrong. It was Clinton who signed a law calling for regime change in Iraq. Bush accepted Clinton's analysis of Iraq and continued Clinton's policy using more effective means. Stop trying to divorce the Democrats from the war. They agreed with the rationale for it and many of them voted for it. They own it as much as anyone. As for Bush's other intiatives, they are still in effect and supported by the current President including the Patriot Act and other counterterrism policies.

    Thank God we had a President like Bush when 9/11 happened. The 9/11 attack changed the whole world that day, and Bush didn't even blame a video for three weeks. The troops that go into harms way surely respected Bush more than Obama, and that was proven very recently at West Point. Those "tax cuts to the super rich" must not have been so horrible if our current President kept them in place. Those "unpatriotic" Debt Ceiling raises must not have been so horrible if our current President wanted them also.

    And? He also supported regime change in Cuba. Why didn't the US invade Cuba?

    That's been one of the complaints about the current rules of engagement, if an American soldiers sees someone carrying an explosive device or burying an IED along a roadway, they can't open fire and kill that person unless they are actually being shot at.

    Why does anyone actually needs to call Obama a liar, he is a liar.

    Obama also is inflicted with narcissistic personality disorder.

    That's a bad policy and should be changed.

    Those bomb-planters are valid targets and they should be taken out before they do their dirty work.
