    It would be nice if he acknowledged that we weren't attacked by the Iraqis in the first place. Now that they totally screwed up this war, we have to stay forever.

    Attending one funeral for a service person from each branch would be nice.

    Whenever George Bush makes a prediction, the smart money always bets against him. Almost everything he has predicted regarding the war, gas prices, jobs, the economy, etc. has been totally wrong. Indeed, I included the word "almost" in the last sentence simply out of caution.

    When historians write the book on Bush's universally wrong series of predictions, he will be forever known as Nostradumbass.

    No. It's because Baby Bush is *almost* always wrong. And if one said he's always wrong, you'd probably come back with the one thing he ever said that was correct.

    Sure I guess when we're attacked we should just throw a few tomahawks at some tents in the desert (showing our enemy what dumbasses we are). It seems to me we haven't had any new terror attacks on the homeland since Bush responded after 9/11. Don't you think, Rayboy, that he was referring to terror attacks, you know it's called the War on Terror.:rolleyes:

    Al-Qaeda let 8 years pass between attacks on the homeland. Proves nothing except their patience.

    Bush's response after 9/11 was nothing compared to his lack of response the month before. Nostradumbass can't even make a solid prediction when it's handed to him in a PDB.

    This shows how ignorant you are, AQ only planned 9/11 for a month? It seems as though the majority of their planning occured in the previous adminstration. I agree their was all kinds of warning signs, Somalia, the African embassy bombings, the USS Cole, Bin Laden's declaration of war etc....wonder why Clinton had such an anemic response to those attacks?

    There is also a reason Clinton sent Sandy Berger to steal classified documents from the archives. The report was that an intel group under the Clinton admin had raised red flags and nothing was done, the report buried.

    Motherfucking moron. Can't you read simple English? I never said that.

    I was being charitable. Bush sat on his ass the entire period, but he received the PDB on August 6, 2001, that warned "Bin Laden determined to strike within the USA", and continued to sit on his ass.

    You should read all of the vicious GOP criticism of Clinton's efforts to deal with al-Qaida. Many of those quislings now give a blank check to Bush for doing so much worse.

    And the Cole was bombed in October 2000, right before the election. The culprits were identified right after the SCOTUS gave the election to Bush. Clinton and his team briefed the new administration and left the decision to Bush since he would be responsible for the aftermath. Clinton's biggest mistake was trusting Bush to be responsible.

    So Bush sat on his ass for 6 months (during a transitional phase). While Clinton had warning signs for how many years?

    Dumbass, just because the election was held in November of 2000 doesn't mean Bush took office in November. Bush didn't take office until Jan. 20th, 2001. Clinton had about three months to respond to the USS Cole bombing. The biggest mistake of Clinton's was his lack of backbone. Obama I mean Osama said it this way......

    "After leaving Afghanistan, the Muslim fighters headed for Somalia and prepared for a long battle, thinking that the Americans were like the Russians," bin Laden said. "The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the American soldier was a paper tiger and after a few blows ran in defeat. And America forgot all the hoopla and media propaganda ... about being the world leader and the leader of the New World Order, and after a few blows they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat."
