Two things need to be cleared up:
1)Almost every U.S. Representative & Senator were “duped” because last week CIA Director Michael Morrell said he told Cheney there no WMD, according to the CIA report. So Cheney either lied to Bush or they both lied to Congress and the American people.
2) Bush negotiated the withdrawal of troops . Obama tried to extend it, but Iraq would not indemnify our troops against charges and possible death for any actions they deemed unlawful. Bring them home.

Watching interviewers ask college kids on campus really stupid questions they should immediately recognize as false, reveals how many of them have no idea that the interviewer is purposely stating bogus facts to test their knowledge of current events. The students seem too ignorant of what is actually going on in the world to see through the charade. And these students VOTE! Little wonder this country is in a heap of trouble.

Bill didn’t despise the military. It would be beneath him to respect it much less serve his country. He just thought he was to good to serve and take a chance to join the rest of us in Vietnam!

I appreciate the “thank a veteran” comment, but need to remind you that today should be about the fallen heroes, not those who are still alive. I think it cheapens the loss when we say “Remember the fallen , but remember to thank a Veteran when you see one.” I used to like it when people did that, but then I stepped back and looked at what that is and found it to be a bit narcissist. No, just remember the fallen with solemness and honor and thank a vet…on Veteran’s Day.

Pick a side and stick to it? Saying stuff suggesting a president lead rather than playing politics is still saying he is doing a bad job. A leader is a better president than a politician. Obama is a politician and we all know he would not ask Sharpton to help calm things since there would be no political gain for them.

Has the right wing forgotten that we weren’t given a reliable option to stay in Iraq? We would have put the lives of our troops at the peril of the local government, with no recourse. Surely you would not want your loved ones put in a situation where you not only risk attack from the enemy, but prosecution from the host government if you make a mistake. Oh, my bad – you don’t really care about those who serve, do you?

You don’t think Americans will be living under Sharia Law soon? Not one in 10 adults in the U.S. could find Syria on a map. With our level of adult literacy, it won’t take Muslims long.

Today is Memorial Day. Lets stop all the bickering for one day. Black and white both served and gave their lives for our freedom. We are still the best country in the world so let’s thank all these brave men and women and stop bickering for one day.

It’s amazes me to read a vent saying “Obama should talk to Sharpton and lead him to unite People” but then, in the next vent, people want Obama out of everyone’s business. You guys cannot have it both ways. The POTUS needs to stay out of everyone’s business and let them have their right to free speech. Should Obama smooth over the Duggar mess, too? Pick a side and stick with it – the POTUS puts his nose in everything or nothing.

So a letter complains that folks criticize Bush for the Iraq mess, but don’t question Hillary about her vote for the war. There is a huge difference between formulating a lie and being duped.
