    W was incapable of articulate off-script speech - very embarrassing for a leader in his position.
    For the first time in history America has created Constitution Free Zones and Free Speech Zones. This should raise a few alarms.

    I can't help but wonder just how many were conflating the invasion of Iraq and the attack on the WTC, and whether that totally unrelated war would have been so acceptable had the attack of 9/11 not taken place.
    Well, whatever their reasons, they voted for it.

    What a load of crap.

    The original (2008) election of Barack Obama is related in that the electorate was sick and tired of Bush and ready to vote for any Notbush who was the least bit credible. How he was reelected remains a mystery to me, but that's just me.

    Yes, unfortunately, at least a majority of their elected representatives did vote for it.

    You appear to lack the wit or knowledge to actually debate. Seriously then, why are you involved in a debate forum?

    I debate all the time. I just see little point in debating you or anyone whose default setting is "liberals bad 100% of the time."

    Your ad hominem attack is duly noted, thus subtracting points from your credibility as a serious debater. Now, back to the original subject which was... what again? The war in Iraq. Oh, yes, that was it. Now, let's see.... we've established that the CIC who decided to invade was one George Bush, but that the Congress authorized the invasion, but stopped short of actually declaring war on anyone, thus subverting the Constitution. We've established that both Democrats and Republicans voted for the invasion, thus taking the partisan nonsense out of the debate. We've established that today's Iraq is an unholy mess after Obama followed the previously established withdrawal plan.

    OK, that's about it. Carry on.

    And yet you read the posts and feel the need to respond. Why?
