No...not at all. I am still getting over how the cannibal that ate a Chinese guy said he was hungry again a half-hour later...

Your integrity would have been displayed had you simply admitted that your statement "Obama voted against the Iraq War as a Senator" was in error.

So the massive genocide was going on while we were there? What a really stupid statement!
And look, the usual suspects are agreeing with you. No wonder this country is in danger of becoming another 3rd world country.

You dudes on the right have convinced me that only a tyrant who knows when to commit a genocide, a psychopath, can rule a country of psychopaths. Lately, I've seen this position stated repeatedly here on the pages of DTT.

So, Bush's "Mission Accomplished" moment actually was the beginning of the end for Iraq and Iraqis, according to DTT's right wing.

I admit, that sounds a little bit coo-coo, but that's what they are saying....

What I'm seeing is, the Lefts continued use of taking issues out of context. Take the "mission accomplished" banner, is that what it meant in totality, or did it apply to only one segment of the overall situation?
I did not support Bush on this issue. There was far too much ambiguity of consensus. The knee-jerk rush to attack someone, anyone, in response to 9/11 prevailed. We had time, and the time should have been used to distinguish between the real, and the imagined enemy.

Calling it a victory in Iraq is the same as breaking a glass, taking all the pieces and holding them together with your hand and saying, "See, I fixed it"
