    This is so very true but to be fair Republicans are just as bad in the other direction. The good thing is when republicans do it is the truth.

    Ac claims to be neither lib nor conservative but libs cannot hide their true colors long. AC IS A LI-IB. AC IS A LI-IB.

    More interesting reading...

    I know PART of this has been posted previously...
    This is interesting reading if you are a Republican or a Democrat.
    Some very interesting points here.......

    There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of January.....

    In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January.

    That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

    When some claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state the following.

    FDR... led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.

    From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

    Truman... finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us.

    From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,334 per year.

    John F. Kennedy... started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

    Johnson... turned Vietnam into a quagmire. Vietnam never attacked us.

    From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

    Clinton... went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never attacked us.

    Clinton was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing.

    Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

    In the two years since terrorists attacked US President Bush has ...

    liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

    The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...
    It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

    We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find her Rose Law Firm billing records.

    It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick, drowning Mary Jo.

    It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

    Our Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB! The Military morale is high!

    The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts.

    PASS IT ON.

    If you can read this thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.
    Those who dance, appear insane to those who do not hear the music.
    Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.

    Good point Cehs

    In a recent poll in the Air Force Times 72% of active duty troops and 73% of reservists would vote for Bush. If he is doing such a bad job leading the war why are his ratings so high from the people fighting the war?

    Kerry claims he will withdraw the troops in 6mo actually I think he said “Start the withdrawal process” (which means absolutely nothing militarily speaking).

    There is no way he could do that it is just a feel good lie to persuade the feeble minded to vote for him. I assure you war is tough and horrible and no one wants it to last, but empty promises are the last thing we need right now. Anyone can tell that if we withdrew from Iraq then it would be as bad as or worse than it was under Saddam. It is really simple we will be in Iraq for a long time promising to withdraw from Iraq is like promising to withdraw from Korea it is just not feasible yet.

    Additionally President Bush never promised this would be a walk in the park he was up front and said the war on terror would be long and far from easy so far he was right.

    Now along comes an armchair quarterback and his 20/20 hindsight proclaiming all the mistakes the President has made and promising his plan is better.

    I just can’t take Kerry seriously.
