    Bring Them Home. We can't afford anymore wars, especially occupation or nation-building wars

    Hmmmmm, let's see what comes out of the Whitehouse in the next few weeks with regard to the two wars we are fighting. I wonder if any of the hype surrounding the Hanks/Spielberg min-series has anything to do with any of it. You know nothing better than a little propaganda, to get all Americans fired up on how great we are as Nation doing right in an evil world, fan those flames of patriotism with a good old war flick so as to justify sending some more of our best young men off to die for nothing. Meanwhile the liberal left continues its destructive onslaught to our sovereign Nation and freedoms while we sleep or watch Oprah....

    It's refreshing and comforting to have a Commander and Chief with a brain and no side kicks who love torture, lies and death as a first resort.

    OH Man the surrender team has gathered. Why else do you think OBAMA wanted to be President. Not once has he attended a prayer service or any Church since he has taken office. He did kiss an Islamic's Hand. But would not bow to the Queen of England embarassing us Americans with our greatest allie. Nor has he saluted when the National Anthem is played. But he has put his feet up on a historic desk in the Oval Office showing his lack of respect to all the Presidents who set there before him. He wouldn't make a pimple on any of them rears. This man wishes the destruction of America as we know it. He and his big hipped wife are slowly but surely destroying the foundation this country was made on. IMPEACH NOW.

    I think America would be a lot better off if the picture showed Hillary at at the head of the table.

    Obama really looks serious in this photo. CNN...can you check and verify that this wasn't really one of those back room health care strategy meetings? Photos can get mixed up really easy. I know I have done it myself when I don't make good notes.

    What a WONDERFUL, INSPIRING and ENGAGING photo!

    As Wolf Blidtzer of the Situation often says "A PICTURE IS WORTH MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS."

    Please President Obama and staff, lets get moving on all of this. I am on your side, knowing time makes things right, But the GOP and their supporters are making alot of noise.

    Believe me I live in Austin, TX and hear all about how you President Oboma and Secretary of State Clinton are doing nothing.

    Just a comment from a fellow Democrat.

    Nice spelling and grammar. It's a lack of education that is destroying the foundation this country was "made on." Have a nice day!

    I honestly don't get it, first you gave a perfect description of the tactics used by Bush & Rove & Cheney to start the war in Iraq, then you try to put the blame on the left?
    Delusional. But at least your post wasn't as depictable as some of your previous ones.

    Barack," So let me get this straight, Admiral, or General. or Captain whatever...Iraq actually shares a border with Iran? That can't be good, can it? Do they have like a big fence or something like that?"
