      Bush administration officials for their (many) crimes is the biggest.

      But yes, this was a bigass mistake.

      If Bush had been halfway competent, he would have splatted Bin Laden at Tora Bora and exited the scene, stage right.

      For that he would have gone down in history as having engaged militarily in Afghanistan and succeeded.

      That would have been a very real accomplishment that even most of us around here would have applauded.

      Instead he got us into a f---ing quagmire.

      By the time Obama inherited it, it was already quicksand with commitments.  

      And Obama is getting us the hell out of that f---ing wasteland full of misogynist barbarians just as quickly as possible.

      "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
