He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002"
But...but...saddam had no ties to al qaeda
2013, the war is over,
Saadam was hanged,
President Bush was kept away from the 2012 Republican convention.
Bet George W Bush will be at the next GOP convention.

If we keep increasing the debt and spending without any major cuts or a Plan B, Obama will own the blame.
It's already happening - if the tone of that press conference yesterday was any indication.
They will turn on him in a heartbeat if they smell blood in the water. They love building people up to turn around and tear them down. Yesterday was, most likely, only the beginning. Problem is President Obama is not the man to understand what is happening till too late. His narcissism and self importance will not let him compromise. It will be his downfall.

Fact? What a moran you are--I mean it's simple math, not a conspiracy theory. "Fact Check: More soldiers have died under Obama than under Bush. Made popular 111 days ago in Politics
The actual facts are that more than twice as many troops have died under Bush. A previous post claiming that more troops have died under Obama was factually incorrect. The information you were using referred to the number of troops that have died in Afghanistan only. Please quit using partial facts out of context in order to get a point across."

There are a million sources to prove my claim. More than 4,000 died under Bush. Less than 2,000 under Obama. Granted that's too many either way. Oh, and how goes the civilian count for the two in Iraq and Afghanistan? How many American civilians died on 9/11 while he was taking yet another vacation cutting brush?

So in that drunken state that you reside in you don't think that the president of the strongest nation on earth should feel just a little bit important? They, meaning Who? No president has tried harder to appease the opposition than has Obama, and all he got for his efforts was....NO,NO and NO from the worst congress ever assembled, thanks in large part to the now defunct Tea Party. Thank goodness they were only a fart in a hurricane..

But right now, Obama's on a roll.

He's beaten your side on every issue;

Obamacare, women, gays, immigrants, taxes.

Your heroes folded their tents and agreed to tax increases on the wealthy, something you swore would never happen.

I do believe he might get a third term!!

Problem for you is that they got no useful intelligence from those who were waterboarded.
Per the CIA, who was doing the waterboarding.
""As for getting "phenomenal results" from waterboarding alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the CIA Inspector General's report on the subject was inconclusive—with the author noting that "you could not in good conscience reach a definitive conclusion about whether any specific technique was especially effective, or [whether] the enhanced techniques in the aggregate really worked." Of course, what we know now is that when it came to tracking down Osama bin Laden's whereabouts, KSM lied despite being subjected to waterboarding, as did other detainees who were tortured. Cheney seems to think those are "phenomenal results."
Bush apologists have been trying for months to credit brutal interrogation techniques for the discovery Osama bin Laden's hideout, all evidence to the contrary. Torture in fact, harmed the America's intelligence collection efforts post-9/11, at least according to former FBI interrogator Ali Soufan. In his new memoir, he writes that the Bush administration's fixation on torture, FBI agents ceased participating in interrogations, "meaning that some of the government’s most knowledgeable experts were unable to speak with the most important terrorists." That claim is difficult to evaluate, but Cheney's claims about waterboarding are false on their face.""

You really should let go of this. You bring it up every few months, get beat about the head over your ignorance, drop it for awhile, then bring up the same stupidity all over again.
Get a life. You're here all the time. You and Nobraina are the most frequent posters on this thread and all you do is spread lies.
Losing an election isn't even enough to make you realize how out of touch you are.
That's how brainlessly partisan you are.
The mantra amongst you wingnuts is:
'Don''t talk about Bush, he's not President anymore'.
But let's talk about Clinton, Carter and any Democrat President, no matter how far back in history it is.
You're funny like that. Not ha-ha funny, but very sick funny.
The recent movie just released about bin Laden's capture pretty much tells the story like it is - including the waterboarding that eventually led to bin Laden.

Hollyweird didn't like the real story either.

Willful ignorance is not an excuse to avoid the real world.

John Kerry was one of the more outspoken ones about getting rid of Saddam in 1998 and 2003 - before he became a weasel.

""In the lead up to the Iraq War, U.S. President George W. Bush alleged that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and militant group al-Qaeda might conspire to launch terrorist attacks on the United States, basing the administration's rationale for war, in part, on this allegation and others. The consensus of intelligence experts has been that these contacts never led to an operational relationship, and that consensus is backed up by reports from the independent 9/11 Commission and by declassified Defense Department reports as well as by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, whose 2006 report of Phase II of its investigation into prewar intelligence reports concluded that there was no evidence of ties between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda. Critics of the Bush Administration have said Bush was intentionally building a case for war with Iraq without regard to factual evidence. On April 29, 2007, former Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet said on 60 Minutes, "We could never verify that there was any Iraqi authority, direction and control, complicity with al-Qaeda for 9/11 or any operational act against America, period."

----------

So the alQueda link was thoroughly debunked, as were the WMD lies.

But to a moron who didn't know Sec of State was a Cabinet Position, believing stupid things comes as no surprise.

We know Bush was dead wrong.

I guess Hillary was, too.

Difference being, Hillary wrote something, Bush started a war that almost bankrupted us, and he lost the war.

Glad I could set the record straight. You're obviously too dumb to figure it out!!
