You seem fact challenged as usual.

#1. "in Iraq that White President you obviouly dislike freed over 80,000,000 people from a cruel dictator who routinely and systematically tortured, maimed and murdered several hundred thousand political enemies and had government sponsored rape gangs, confiscated billions of dollars of oil money for himself while many went hungry and too many other atrocities to list here.'

The problem with this is the pretext for war was fabricated WMD threats, not freeing 80m Iraqis. In fact, under Saddam (who incidentally was "our" boy for decades), Iraq was a relatively secular nation that kept Iran in check. Thousands of dead and injured Americans later, islamists are poised to take control there. Well done GWB. BTW, the Iraqi people were starving because of sanctions, not just Saddam.

Saudi Arabia is a brutal dictatorship/monarchy that still treats women as second class citizens and practices Sharia law....why not invade then too eh?

#2 "And, how about Afghanistan where the Taliban was in control and imposed very strict Islamic law and traditions where people were routinely executed if they were found guilty of disobeying the smallest rule and women were stoned for any reason they wanted. And they were sponsoring Al qaueda and Bin Laden."

Again, you fail to acknowledge that the Taliban (Ethnic Pashtun) were largely created by our own CIA during the Soviet occupation.

While military action was necessary to oust them and AQ, Bush's blunder let UBL escape, and now set the stage for a prolonged occupation, when UBL was in Pakistan the whole time. NO NATION has ever conquered Afghanistan, so much for history.

Maybe if we stopped meddling in everyone's business, we wouldn't have to spend trillions on deadly excursions to the detriment of our own economy.


So two "off the book wars" and tax breaks that should've been applied towards the debt was all on Bush...period.

The current housing crisis had little to do with Fannie/Freddie and had more to do with the deregulation that blurred the lines between investment houses and lenders. Most of this deregulation was sponsored by the GOP.

You really should stop listening to mindless right-wing radio.:)
