    You'll have to link that because I don't believe it's true.

Brownie had in fact acted appropriately but he was jettisoned to relieve the political pressure.

    And because I think, I know that your opinion is not supported by fact.

    Here's another example of something Bushy did which NO ONE EVER talks about.

    He kept Muslims safe in America after 9/11 when the Bubba Force was ready to target every Muslim in sight.

    He made nice with Jihadists (either in ignorance or as a deft act of political wisdom) in the White House after 9/11 and convinced most Americans not to see Muslims as the enemy inside our country,
    When Obama sounds conciliatory towards Muslims he's weak and Muslim lover who's purposely trying to turn the country into a Islamic Republic. When Bush did it you conservatives pat him on the back.

    Can't take anything you guys say seriously anymore. You've taken hypocrisy, and your hatred of Obama to a whole new level.

    Bush was not responsible for the crew making and hanging the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the superstructure of the aircraft carrier.

    Secondly, Bushy said that major ground operations were concluded and that was correct.

    Only airheads and ignorami believe(d) otherwise.

    After much fighting in 2003, the coalition forces were successful in deposing the Saddam regime.

    They defeated the world's 5th largest army to do so.

    That was no piece of cake, and it was the successful completion of the mission.

    How can anyone still be so ignorant of the facts when they have at their fingertips the combined knowledge and wisdom of mankind since the beginning of recorded time?
