While the bashing will be fierce, as it always is when yet another person provides even more proof of Bush's lies and propaganda which have led to over four-thousand dead young Americans, and thousands upon thousands more, devastatingly injured, victims of suicide, and PTSD. the major question, now, is how can any Americans go out and vote for the man who has supported this ilegal, immoral, un-necessary occupation of Iraq, as evidence mounts which reveals the truth of what this White House has done, and how many have suffered needlessly for it.

McCain's promise never to surrender, leaves one to ask, surrender to whom, or what? The truth?


<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">But in a chapter titled "Selling the War," he alleges that the administration repeatedly shaded the truth and that Bush "managed the crisis in a way that almost guaranteed that the use of force would become the only feasible option."

"Over that summer of 2002," he writes, "top Bush aides had outlined a strategy for carefully orchestrating the coming campaign to aggressively sell the war. . . . In the permanent campaign era, it was all about manipulating sources of public opinion to the president's advantage."

McClellan, once a staunch defender of the war from the podium, comes to a stark conclusion, writing, "What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary."

I agree, and also think that the vast majority of Americans, now know that this invasion of Iraq, was a war of choice. It took two egomaniacs to think they could be invaders, and succeed, amidst such varried religious and ethnic centuries old grudges, and presume that there would be any lasting public support for such gross incompetence.

Now, they don't want to provide the same assistance provided for vets after WWII, unless conditions are applied, for re-enlistment!

I just hope that they recieve in spades what they deserve for all their lies, and all the lives lost and ruined because of them.

As the election heats up, and the fiasco in Iraq continues to rev up, which it will, and the economy continues to slide, which it will, more protestors will be out in huge numbers, and Bush will have to start having all the fund raisers at his fantasy ranch. They couldn't hold their Obama style fund raiser, because no one was going to show up! And there were going to be large numbers of demonstrations outside. It's about time!

Reading any defense of this bunch of crooks, given that every way one turns, from the economy, to the debts, loopholes for corporate price fixing, predatory lending, outing of covert agents, torture of innocent people, and American Troops, without protective helmets and armor, or even clean drinking water, billions unaccounted for, trillions of accumulating debt, and every dissenter in the Military, axed, and slandered, defending Republicans becomes an anti-American acitivity, which most certainly does not support our troops, who have paid the price much more so than any of us here at home.

Of course, all of this is just figments of the imaginations of liberals. And none of it is the fault of the Commander in Chief!

What a crock of BS. About is ridiculous as saying that Bush won Florida, after we have documented proof that Katherine Harris purged as many as 20,000 voters in advance! And Bush blocked the re-count, and sent young Republican "Christians" down to create chaos, on the Enron Jet!
