    The rewriting of the history will be much tougher for Mr. Rove and his allies with the existence of the internet.

    I wonder how right wingers react when they say, "Saddam and Bin Laden worked together" and yet, you have Bush saying, "No one in this administration ever said Iraq had any connection to 9/11"?

    Then there is "slam dunk".

    Now you have the right saying "We never said Iraqi oil would finance the war".

    And right now, there are tens of billions, maybe even a hundred billion in Iraqi money sitting in US banks while this country finances the rebuilding if Iraq. Because Bush and the Republicans signed treaties and contracts that the new president just can't "void". They screwed Obama and screwed the American public. But still, they are bold enough to say, "We are the answer to all the problems we created".

    At some point, the Iraqis will want their money that we have to cough up AFTER we rebuild their country.

    But oh my how they appreciates us. A man throws his shoes at our president and becomes a "national hero". They even build a huge "shoe monument".

    What ever happened to "America Appreciation Day"? Are they our friend or our enemy? If they are our enemy, then why were tens of thousands of Americans maimed and killed?

    And yet, Republicans still insist, Republican policies are the "answer".

    Really, we do love to stretch things.....

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The monument commemorating the journalist who hurled his shoes at President George W. Bush was taken down a day after it was erected, local officials in Tikrit told CNN.
