  •  The Iraq war... (4+ / 0-)

    ...was a bright shining moment when we got to see who was on our side and who was a fucking poser.

    When the chips were down, Hillary (and Kerry) sold US citizens, the troops, Iraqi civilians, and the Constitution out for their ambitions.

    They failed. Miserably. When I vote for Presidents, I like to vote for people with some shred of moral character (tough these days, I know).

    The lesson must be taught. It is essential that no one who voted for the Iraq war ever get to be President. Ever.

    •  I agree. I would still vote for such a person (2+ / 0-)

      in a General Election against a Republican, because bitching about choosing between the "lesser of two evils" is just childish if that's the decision you're faced with.  But while there is an option to reject such people, such as in a primary, I will always do that.  

      The Iraq War was an historic moment of decision and the clearest test of citizenship, intelligence, courage, and morality since the Civil War.  Those who voted for the Iraq War failed all of the above.  Those who did so and still don't admit they failed prove themselves to be irredeemable liars and narcissists.

      Going faster miles an hour, with the radio on.
