GW was trying to replace dictators and oppressive governments with democracy,

Period.

He knew that there were a few million votes in the "don't change horses in the middle of the stream" camp, and he fully expected the slam dunk he was promised by November.

And it was one of very few things Bush got right in eight years.

Do you really like responding in every post with nasty insults and slanders to everyone? Are you that bitter about the crap you took in life? Because you talk about your progressive party of godliness as the utopian king, not everyone else agrees. Many who are not progressive just use you and most of the rest of the extreme left real whackos who spew the progressive flak as the foundation to launch their views. Your opinions and your facts are either to rigid or biased to the point of being ludicrous. Government is corrupted. Both sides are. And that includes men and women of any background. But you deny that. Enjoy the progressive movement, because it has peaked. It may continue on inertia, but the resources are not there to keep this up. So big time cuts or big time tax increases are coming. and Obamacare is one of the big time tax increases. The problem is, people are wising up and are tired of paying. they will earn les to collect benefits. The private side is already downsizing them and they will also. You stole to much. Ao the drivel is really you and your compadres. And as always...Saul Alinsky lives!

Would that be Reagan the Democrat or Reagan the RINO?

You should convince yourself to get a job and stop collecting welfare, SOB.

The only thing you convinced me of so far is I was giving tea baggers too much credit when I called them morons.

And Obama is supposed to be Commander-In-Chief? lol

Can you imagine what might have happened if Kennedy had gone to Congress to get approval before sending Coast Guard and Navy ships to intercept the Soviet missiles that were headed for Cuba in October 1961? The missiles would have arrived and all set up to launch to the mainland U.S. by that time.

Guess what? In the Cuban Missile Crisis, the nuclear WMDs came out, and Castro remained in power for over half a century!! Assad and Putin know their history very well.

Funny how people complain about presidents taking actions without the approval of Congress and in the next breath complain about going to Congress for approval.

Kennedy was confronted with nuclear warheads that were more or less 100 miles off the coast of the US. Obama was confronted with a despot who was halfway around the globe who was and is absolutely no threat to the US.

And morons can't make the distinction.
