Keep filling the money pit, then toss in a few hundred bodies with it every 6 months. Gotta make the rich richer. Can't have enough gold toilets.

No. No more. We cannot manage nor afford this war anymore. There are more important domestic issues that demand attention that are being neglected and ignored. Shame on us for letting our government lose touch with its peoples.

The evil lying scumbag liberals on MSNBC Keith Olbermann and Chris Mathhews made up this thing about McCain saying that we went into Iraq just for oil and cheap gas, so here's McCain's direct quote.

I'm so sick and tired of these vile, disgsuting immoral, Godless socialist liberal lying to the American people.

"My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East," McCain said.

Another made up story by that filthy pig Olbermann and Chris Matthews over a Mccain statement, that we'll be fighting and dying in Iraq for over 100 years.

"After we win the war in Iraq, and we are succeeding and it's long and hard and tough, with enormous sacrifices then I'm talking about a security arrangement that may or may not be the same kind of thing we had with Korea after the Korean war was over," he said.

Whoa, chill pill time, angry man.

Are we reading the same quote? He said that if we're not dependent on Middle East oil, we'll never need to fight there again, meaning, he thinks we are fighting there now because of oil.

Maybe if you weren't so beet-faced angry and sputtering your reading comprehension skills, if they exist, would allow you to understand the meaning of what he said.

So is this beet-faced anger because McCain let the unconfortable (for you) truth out of the bag?

This past year 2007 they proposed a 80 billion or so price tag in 2006.

remember they had to poass several emergency supplemental bills totaling over 50 billion to add to the 80 billion.

This will be the same thing again.

This man is a looser just like the war.

His claim to fame will be having the name of the "worst president" ever.

Hell his ratings now are lower than Nixon's in August 1974 when he was "forced" out of office.

Fighting a "War on Terror" in Iraq and the FBI stated that they believe that at least dozens of terrorist from the Middle East have crossed the Mexican border in the last several years and set up cells in this country.

Great logic! Spend billions on the other side of the world and leave the back door open to anyone. Home Land SecuirtyŚRight!

Of course Halliburton and others will not make hundreds of billions stopping the border crossings as they have done and are doing in Iraq!

Are people this dumb to believe this government BS?

You have a point, but Senator McCain might need to choose his words more carefully. Otherwise, the press will keep twisting.

Let him get it from his rich oil buddies. Exxon Mobil will probably make 60 billion in profits this year. Along with the rest of the industry they can easily afford to fund their buddy Bush's illegal war.
