The comments from Harry Reid and others from the 'liberal left' must make it embarrassing for those who claim to be Democrats. Todays Dems are as anti-American as those who seek the downfall of the United States....

Sad news folks. The war was lost, but not by the soldiers by no means.... Look to the poloticians sitting in washington if you want to see the real reason we lost. The terrorists won the day the patriot act was inacted, the day our freedoms began melting away, that was the day we "Americans" lost the war. Our gov. is GIVING our nations money to private companies that cant even tell us where alot of the money went. They are giving companies OUR money to send OUR best jobs over seas. And in return we get tainted food and laughed at and used for fools....

You could not have said it any clearer then that. How right you are! For awhile I thought I was the only one who thought this way.

Several more trillion maybe!!! And the sacrifice of how many thousand of our military men and women!! How many children will be left without fathers or mothers? How many spouses without mates? One doesn't need to be a Democrat or liberal to see the truth--because of Bush administration policies, the war is lost. I am/was a lifelong Republican from a family of Republicans, but the truth is the truth and more people had better open their eyes AND speak out!

This is really sad. The terrorist around the world thank you from the bottom of the hearts. You did see the video on the Internet of the young Muslim boy beheading that man didn't you? Wasn't that cute? Maybe next time you can gather the kids around the monitor so they can watch too. You do want to see more of that don't you? Obviously you do since you're supporting their cause by criticizing our government for trying to help world democracy. I love the way Demos and their sympathizers have all the ridicule and criticism but no answers. No answers at all. The most they can come up with is denial that there's a problem. But that doesn't stop them from helping the enemy. And that's sad, really sad.

Senator Lieberman must stop his support to the treasonous Harry Reid that will be ousted from the leadership of the senate. Obviously, the US constitution does not allow the Dems’ senators to legislate defeat and surrender of the American people and to stab the back of our brave US troops in harms way just because they are doing well in Iraq and will defeat the Islamic terrorist suicide bombers during the next few months.
The left wing liberals have clear and declared agenda of hate America because it is strong, weaken US as much as possible, defeat our own brave US troops, embolden, and support the Islamic terrorist suicide bombers and the atomic bomb seeking Iranian evil regime Ahmadinajad.
The left wing liberal agenda is based on undermining the White House executive branch of US because a weakened US will be good for a left wing liberal, socialistic and internationalist world under the control of UN that will be the impotent "police" of the world.
However, The Harry Reid’s call for surrender and self defeat is treasonous and anti-American agenda that is dangerous to the security of US as a country that is under a continuous threat of the Islamic terrorists and Islamic fascism after 9/11 attack that can come back to hit US cities and universities.
Harry Reid must be ousted for his treasonous support of the enemies of US and his betrayal of our US troops and their families and his vicious attacks on his own country should never be forgotten or forgiven.

Jones,You are exactly right our goverment officials like Reid should be charged with treason.They are respondsible for the morale of our brave men and women.How do you expect our brave soldiers to risk their lives every day,when our Democrats and Liberals tell them the War is already lost.Must be a great feeling for our anti-Americans when they hear of more U.S Troops losing their lives for this Great Country That They are slowly tearing down.

Well said and very true.“Enough is enough” with the treasonous actions of the left wing liberal leaders and especially Harry Reid that must be ousted and pack and leave the senate.
