    When will Harry Reid ask to read the names of the dead since the Marxists took office?

    The left wing lunatics only did it to use the death of our precious soldiers as a weapon against George Bush.. Course it clear to me obamalama won't keep his promise of withdrawing troops from Irag by 2009.. we can say hypocrites now.


    where the hell is code pink?

    How do we - this administration - end the mistakes of the Cheney/Bush era? Two so called wars, one simply an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation on trumped up charges. So many needless deaths, billions spent and where is OBL? Time to leave both countries. When Bush started these messes he must have been on some drug that made him think culture change of a thousand years was easy. What buffoons the republicans were and all who sided with war. Except for protecting the Kurds, it is time to leave them form their own nations. Occupation doesn't change people who hate you.

    OH OH I Know I KNOW!! (Raising hand wildly from the back row because I have the answer)

    Clears my throat. We can continue to air raid villages and kill civilians.

    That help?

    How about this for a premise:

    The left cared not a whit about the casus belli, the costs of the wars, nor the human toll.
    All the rage was ginned up, the marches bought and paid for by Soros and 'protest du jour.'

    The Democrat stenographers (journalists) the same.

    And the motive was simply anti-Bush.

    That's it.

    Check out the York article:
    "It's not getting much attention, but the Netroots Nation conference (formerly known as YearlyKos, a spinoff from the left-wing website DailyKos) is going on in Pittsburgh this weekend. Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg has conducted a straw poll of the participants...

    What's truly striking in Greenberg's poll is the degree to which the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have fallen off the progressive radar. I attended the first YearlyKos convention, in 2006, and have kept up with later ones, and it's safe to say that while people who attended those gatherings couldn't stand George W. Bush in general, their feelings were particularly intense when it came to opposing the war in Iraq. It animated their activism; they hated the war, and they hated Bush for starting it. They weren't that fond of the fighting in Afghanistan, either.

    Then Greenberg asked which one of those issues "do you, personally, spend the most time advancing currently?" The winner was health care reform, with 23 percent, and second place was "working to elect progressive candidates in the 2010 elections," with 16 percent. In 11th place -- at the very bottom of the list -- was "working to end our military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan." Just one percent of Netroots Nations attendees listed that as their most important personal priority.

    Not too long ago, with a different president in the White House, the left was obsessed with America's wars. Now, they're not even watching.

    Want to bet we are not watching. President Obama has about three months to show some real results in Afghanistan. Results such as Bin Laden's head. Results such as the Taliban in defeat with no support from the Afghan people.

    You fools gave Bush and his cabal of incompetants eight full years to demonstrate that they could blow 3 Trillion dollars with no positive results. Now President Obama inherited the whole mess that you helped create. There is no way that he can straighten it out in only six months. But, by the end of this year, the mess is his completely. If he fails by then to have a plan to get us out of there, and stop our fiscal hemoraging in Iraq and Afghanistan, he will have to answer for his failure.

    I will accept your thanks. Do you really think we needed another four years of Republican incompetance? Did we need someone in there that was so dead to what was happening that they claimed on the Sunday before Meltdown Monday that the economy was sound? Did we need another four years of being told that tax breaks for the very wealthy was the cure for everything that ever ailed mankind?

    We have an ongoing economic crisis in this nation. We can still descend into the Second Great Republican Depression. The peices are still in place. The income inequality is the greatest it has been since WW1. We have not replaced the manufacturing that we shipped to other nations for the profit of the upper 1% in this nation.

    We are spending 16% of our GDP on health care, and getting third world results. While the rest of the industrialized democracies are spending half that, with far better result in almost every medical category.

    And if you damned Rushpublicans cared so much for our servicemen and women, why did the new GI Bill have to wait for a Democratic administration? Why did the esposure of the horror of how our boys were treated at Walter Reed have to wait for a Democratic majority in Congress? The man who engineered those horrors for his own profit was a Haliburton spinoff. Aren't you just so proud of Cheney?

    Yes, President Obama answer for what is happening now. He must make some decisions soon on what our position is to be in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the POTUS, and we, his supporters, will hold him accountable for what happens in those miserable nations. Which is far more than Bush's supporters have ever done.
