I like Paul although I do not agree with some of his economic foolishness. Then again, what could be worse than Obamonomics?

Pure hogwash redux. Iraq did indeed have WMD. Tonse of yellow cake uranium has been shipped from Iraq to Canada after takeover by US troops. Your foul Democrats and outright Communists like Obama worked to impede success from before we ever went into Iraq. For a year and a half, your slime impeded us and gave Saddam plenty of time to move almost all his WMD to Syria, where it was identified in two different locations by the Israelis. Now, you slime are arming and funding the Syrian extremists actually eating people's hearts, letting them overrun one of the sites, then using the WMD from Iraq on innocent women and children. You know these are facts, yet you continue your lies and disinformation. You undermined our troops once they were in Iraq. You tried to foul the memories of the dead. You exaggerated and lied about civilian casualties. You are puke, the worst of the worst... unwilling to sacrifice for anything other than the power to force your deviant lives and tyranny on Americans.
And you are Torquemada redux, with your medieval notions of evil. In short, you are a paleo-screwball.

Funny, John Kerry, Harry Reid, and the rest of the democrats voted for it.
I've already explained why. If you want to be part of the discussion, perhaps you should read what others have said.

Democrats voted for the Iraq war because they didn't want America to think they are cowards. They didn't notice their Muslim buddies knocked down a building or two on 9-11. They live in la la land. Look around this country, and tell me we are better off today then we were in 2008. Look at the IRS man testifying before Congress tonight, lying in his teeth. He is an example of the people the President has surrounded himself with. This President made Hillary lie about Benghazi, and ruin her reputation, to elect Democrats in 2012.No wonder she nearly had a stroke. That kind of stress can kill you.

I'm the last person in the world to say anything favorable about Rand Paul, but I'm not willing to send my sons to Iraq either, unless Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, McCain, Rumsfeld, and Romney led the charge.

Rand May not have a choice. We have a volunteer military. If his son chooses to join when he is of age, he'll go where he's told to go.

No son with half a brain would choose to serve under the current President. I am sure the Rand's, as we do, discuss current events at supper.

Not only did the United States destabilize Iraq and create all kinds of human misery and chaos for millions of innocent people, now the same freaks who supported this effort want to turn their backs on them and act as if all of this is the fault of Obama?
It seems the destabilization not only worked in Iraq, but the minds of some Repubs still remains unstable.
Throwing around the word Communist or Socialist or whatever the Repubs happen to be against at the moment does not change the fact that the war in Iraq was started simply to gain profit. There were dollar signs all over it and you must ask yourself, who profited from this horror?
I am pretty sure Hell is freezing over since even Fox Folks have decided to unload on Cheney. And even more amazing, Pat Robertson freaked out and started dumping on Bush. Sad thing is, it is all too little too late.
It will take someone extremely wise, compassionate and powerful to clean up this sad mess.
Yes, maybe we will elect a decent honest American, when this muslim who hates this country is gone.

My husband laments every day about all the time he spent in the Navy for them to elect a foreigner as President in the country he loved so much. It will be the same great country we grew up with after January 2017. Then we can be proud again. It will be Morning in America once more!!!

Do you drink medical Koolaid ? Hillariously, Obama, Pe-lousy, Reed rot, never seem to acknowledge knowledge except to tell the rest of us how to live and then do as they please.
