GOP Debate: Did I miss the part on Iraq and Afghanistan?

Since these are the worst of all the Republican failures, I wasn't surprised that neither one was brought up.

Shouldn't they have least given them a passing mention?

Failures?? Hardly...

Perfect? No.. but not failures...

But we expect nothing less from a partisan hack like you, rdummy
If the goal in Iraq was to create a Constitutional right wing theocracy based on Islam that forced women into Burkas, then it worked beyond our wildest dreams.

If the goal in Afghanistan was to get Bin Laden and make him pay for 9/11, then that also worked. For Obama.

You might as well stop. It's a losing argument. It's why the candidates didn't bring them up. They're not TOTALLY stupid.

Hey stupid, the moderators are the ones that dictate what subjects to debate, not the candidates.

Republican failures? Hardly. They were both in pretty good shape when Obama took over. If you are going to attack the war efforts there is no way that Obama wouldn't be implicated. You and MSNBC are both complete partisan hacks but it seems that MSNBC at least understand some undeniable truths.

If you think the candidates don't have any say before time on what questions they're being asked, you are truly "lost".

The bullshit is you saying it's bullshit. Anyone who reads anything coming out of Iraq knows the truth and it was Obama who took down Osama.

Bullprunes...

Obama took down nobody.. do not disrespect the efforts our military put into that operation by your asinine assertion that Obama took him out... he merely gave the ok

Iraq and Afghanistan were done, even with mistakes, to a high level of success.... It is not for us to make puppet governments or whatever.. it was up to the people of both countries to finalize their own form of a freely made government...

You sir (and I use that term lightly), are full of shit... as always

Obama followed the operation on a daily basis..gave direction..and quarreled with the "Generals" on how to whack him. They even fought about when to do it.

Aside from flying in on his own and whacking Osama himself..he had a great deal to do with it.

You're gonna have to show some evidence that the candidates have a say as to what question are to be asked.

Candidates always review questions ahead of time. As far back as I can remember. They may not know who gets asked what, but they are always given the questions ahead of time.

Do you understand how debates work? The moderators ask questions, the candidates answer them. Do you think the moderators, who obviously chose the questions the from an Obama campaign fact sheet, wanted someone to point out that Obama is following Bush's plan in Iraq, and that he is planning on totally breaking his promise to bring everyone home? Or that he actually is on a pace to have more deaths in Afghanistan than Bush did in his whole term?

If you think they do, you are truly psycho.

That does not count as evidence.

Do you honestly think that, if they actually had a chance to change any questions, either Romney or Perry would have let the questions they got go through?

I don't think rdean understands that few, if any, of the current candidates had anything to do with President Bush's decision in Afghanistan or Iraq. They are President Bush's decision.

He doesn't seem to realize that if the moderator brought it up that all of them would have a completely clean slate while Obama would be extremely vulnerable since he is continuing many of the President's positions.

He just wants to blindly attack Republicans. It's a shame. I'm sure if he used his mind he could do alot of good if he wanted to.
