How many U.S. citizens have been killed and how much money has the U.S. spent in Afghanistan?? And the Taliban still run amuck on the streets of the Capital because we went after the wrong county, Iraq. Juniors father had been embarrassed by Iraq and he wanted personal revenge. So we sacrificed many a young person and all this countries wealth on Iraq and left Afghanistan in the hands of a Bush appointed President. Who does little more than cash the checks and keep the cash supplied by the U.S.<quoted text>
Look, Dahlonega. YOU are the one who doesn't get it. Obama and people of your ilk have harped on Bush and "his" war ad nauseam. That's ALL we've heard for YEARS. Obama was GIVEN the Nobel PEACE Prize(for doing nothing)(also, rather IRONIC) and NOW he wants to attack Syria. You liberals think as long as OBAMA is doing it, it's okay. His reasons are "valid". Do you understand how ridiculous that is?????
Do you understand how STUPID you liberals look supporting that? On the one hand, you stomp around slamming Bush while saying the U.S. ISN"T the world's police, but now that YOUR HERO wants to ride into Dodge City flashing his badge, well, that's AWESOME! So NOW it's GREAT to be the world's police. Right?
As far as the pledge, I'm not surprised. Even if the poll showed a vast majority favored leaving "under God" in the pledge, the minority rules, so......
Argue all you want, its all Bushes fault. You have no real grasp of what damage was done to this country and the world economy as a result of his Presidency. Fix it is so easy to say, but so hard to do. We almost and may still go bankrupt from the long term results. Almost everything that has gone wrong economically is a result of his President. You can't change or ignore history, unless you are a blind follower filled with hate, that's you.
You might want to do a little research on how the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded, we got nuttin to do with it.
Blaming the minority for the actions of the majority, is basically a really stupid statement, but that's nothing new coming from you.
