  •  Scratching my head (0+ / 0-)

    The entire mandate for the democratic win in 2008 was to end a war that had begun under false pretenses -- that Saddam had WMD's and that is what made him an urgent or imminent threat that required a pre-emptive strike.

    I will never understand why the democrats didn't put all their energy and resources from day one into making the case against the Bush Administration over these "false pretenses" and proving within the setting of a special prosecutor and/or congressional investigation that "Bush Lied Us Into War" and needs to be impeached because of that.

    And as far as I know, there isn't any investigation going on even now to prove that, or any planned for that matter.

    Still scratching my head.

      Americans care more about how to get out than how we got in.

        but if you don't have the votes to get out...then the next  thing is to get rid of the President who committed a "High Crime and Misdemeanor" to get us in in the first place.

      Corruption I think polled higher or was nearly as high.

      There was definitely more in the mix than just the war.
